About Jamie Balbo
Jamie Balbo grew up going to LBI, former lifeguard, fisherman, surfer, etc. I also have rented many homes for his own family's vacations. I want to create the ideal vacation setting for your family and to contribute to the charm of the Beach Haven historic district

Why Jamie Balbo chose Beach Haven
This is a great family vacation destination. The area is quiet yet has lots of amenities close by. The beach is beautiful year round. The island is close enough to where we live that we can go for weekends and enjoy a nice change of pace.
What makes this House unique
The best part is simply the fact that you can park the car and walk everywhere you want to go. There are a lot of great restaurants nearby including the Engleside, Sweet Vadalia the Gables and many more. We enjoy walking on the beach, jogging and riding our bikes on the bike path and playing tennis on the public courts at the end of the street. The kids will tell you their favorite part is exploring on the beach, playing on the playground across the street and going on the rides at Fantasy Island the slides at the water park.

“Perfect house for a family vacation on LBI”
We had a fabulous time at this very special house only a block from the ocean. Our family included three generations that ranged from age 8 to 70, and all of us were very happy here. We truly hated to leave at the end of our week. The house is cozy and comfortable and plenty of room for our large family to spread out. All four bedrooms are lovely and well furnished with everything we could need. The kitchen is fully stocked and we wanted for nothing. Loved the gas stove. My favorite part was the beautiful gardens all around the house. So many gorgeous flowers in bloom.And having the fenced in yard was a terrific place for the 4 kids to play. The big swing in the backyard was a huge hit, too. We made almost daily use of a very good grill and were able to seat everyone around the two tables outside. Having the washer and dryer came in handy and we walked to the food store only a few blocks away. The free concert in the park on Wednesday night was within walking distance, as was a place to get ice cream. We also walked to a history museum. I would recommend this house to anyone with children who loves the island and the ocean. Hope that you are as blessed as we were with perfect weather almost all week. Many thanks to the owner for letting us share this terrific beach cottage.
Great home for families with small children
My family and I just returned from our week's vacation in this home. The house is definitely larger than it appears, and during our busiest couple of nights, we had 5 adults and 3 children. There was still plenty of room. For us, with three children ages 4, 4, and 2, the single floor plan and fenced in yard were very important. The game room allowed our kids to have a spot to play but to also be in ear/eyesight. The walk to the beach was easy and short as was the walk to restaurants, shops and Fantasy Island. I also liked that there was access to the outside patio area from the master bedroom. Overall, we had a wonderful week in this house. While we will probably look for something "pet friendly" next year (because we hated leaving our dog at home), I would highly recommend this house for anyone with small kids and for anyone looking for a kid-free weekend away.
Perfect Beach Haven Rental
This property was exaclty as represented in the photos, but is bigger than it looks. It was very clean, super close to the beach and only a couple blocks away from shopping. It was also a very quiet neighborhood. The owners were great to deal with, very prompt on all inquiries. We enjoyed our nightly bike rides and daily trips to the beach. Will be back! Thanks!
Thank you for your review. The picutes do make it look smaller than in reality which is a result of trying to get as much of the house as possible into each picture. It is very comfortable in the house for the number of people we allow to stay there.
We rented this house last summer and cannot say enough good about it. Clean, bright and well equipped.There were 3 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 3 in our party and there was ample room.
The location was perfect and the outside area was just fabulous.
We are sad that our vaction this coming year does not conincide with availabilty, but hopefully in years to come.
The owers are extermely responsive and obviously take prinde in their home.
Lastly, having a fenced in yard with two small ones is a huge bonus.
Great family home
This was my family's first experience in LBI with an 18 month old and it was great. The one level layout is great for children. Plenty of room for our extended family. Great location to beach and Beach Haven attractions. Would stay again!
Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that it was a good experience for you and hope you do decide to come back. We have kids too and made the house as kid friendly as possible.
Great Vacation House
A great house and all new and clean inside. Loved the courtyard for hanging out at night. The beach is very close and we walked to everything - resturaunts, shopping, amusements, groceries. Highly recommend and will be going back.
