Great Week and a Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House was everything and more then we expected and we can't wait to stay again! Mark was very accommodating and quick in response.

The house is centrally located to anything and everything you may need. Although we didn't get a chance to use the beach gear, everything was provided in the garage which makes packing/travelling that much easier.

Excellent Renovation Done Here, Best Location on LBI

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with 4 full BRs, a fantastic full house renovation done after Sandy. It has it all, washer and dryer, a great open kitchen, a good grill, and a garage for all of the beach toys you might bring down. The location is 2 blocks to 7 of the best restaurants on LBI (Clam house, Carmens, Chicken or the Egg, Pancake House, Snack bar, Barrys, and Black Whale)

Great Location, Place, Owner

  • 5 of 5

It's in the heart of Beach Haven, 3 blocks from the beach, so walkable to everything. Ice cream, the bars, and a ton of restaurants, 10 min walk from the amusement park/water slide/arcade Fantasy Island. The house is amazing. Wide open, central air, he fully stocked the kitchen with every possible item and plenty of plates/glasses etc. We've stayed there 3 years now and booked a 4th. Stayed there with 2 couples and teens/college age kids.

About Mark Russo

We have spent our summers growing up in Beach Haven and have purchased this house many years ago. We did a complete renovation of the house in 2014 and use it for our personal family vacations as well as rent it part of the summer.

Mark Russo purchased this house in 1997

Why Mark Russo chose Beach Haven

It is the perfect location in the center of Beach Haven. The common living area is a great place to gather for adults and kids. We have had many wedding guests and parties use it in the off season as it is centrally located.

What makes this house unique

Lots of privacy having a two level home with bedrooms and bathrooms on both floors so it is great if you want to be all together or needs some privacy.


Our house is located on S. Delaware Avenue between Centre Street and Engleside Avenue. We are located within one block of Murphy's Market, Kapler's Drug Store, Barry's, The Marlin, and Holiday Snack Bar.
