About the property

First floor unit right on the ocean offers 3 bedrooms, 1 & 1/2 baths, sleeps 6

Have a summer vacation to remember at this private, oceanfront haven. The house is located in the heart of Long Beach Island, and offers 40 feet of oceanfront deck providing a secluded place to enjoy a meal outdoors or just relax and watch the waves.

The house has has been updated with beach casual decor. The fully stocked kitchen makes meal prep a breeze and there are enough beds for a family of six to be comfortable. Each bedroom room has a ceiling fan plus central air conditioning to keep you cool; or you can leave the windows open and listen to the sound of the ocean all night.

A hammock on the deck adds to the beachfront experience. Napping in the sun with the sound of the ocean is not something you will want to pass up.

You will find that the location is most convenient to many restaurants, shopping and recreational facilities/attractions. While there is garage parking for 2 cars, once we are there we rarely take them out as almost everything we need is within walking or bicycling distance.

Enjoy the extra amenities of a washer and dryer in the garage, and an oversized outdoor shower in the back for a refreshing experience after the beach.

Lovely view but not a welcoming house

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about this house is the location, the porch & the ocean view. The morning sun makes breakfasts outside just lovely, then it’s shady for the rest of the day. We saw beautiful sunrises, sunsets & every kind of sky in our week here. Unfortunately, the rest of the review is not glowing. The main reason is the penny pinching owner & lack of a feeling of welcome. This is a beach house, but nothing for the beach is provided - no beach badges, beach chairs or umbrellas. I rent regularly & I’ve never found this before. The last place I stayed, just a few miles south, even included beach towels. Beach badges only cost $40 for the whole season, but buying by the week costs $20. So, it would be a small price for the owner to provide for all their renters, while it’s a high price for each of them. The house is also just a shell – nothing is provided other than furniture, appliances, pillows and bedspreads. And I mean NOTHING! We were shocked to find no toilet paper, salt & pepper, soap, dishwashing liquid, any cleaning supplies, dishwasher tablets, paper towels, napkins…nothing. Most places leave the basics some have lots more like condiments, sheets, towels – a Welcome Pack including coffee & tea for a couple days. Not at this house…we couldn’t believe that we had to immediately go out to get toilet paper! The kitchen has the most basic appliances with unsightly marks all over the fridge. The twin bedrooms have closets & a dresser, but the double bedroom is very small with no closet. The half bath looks like it was homemade. I guess they took the closet and made it into a half bath. More provision for hanging things would be useful here. The view was so wonderful we decided to wash the windows so we could see it better. We also had to scrub the green slime in the outdoor shower after slipping the first day. The rest of the cleaning was fine & we were happy to find a vacuum so we could clear the sand regularly. We meet the cleaners on our arrival & departure. They were very friendly & had done a great job before we moved in. The owner was there for our first 4 days, but she never greeted us at all. The last thing that soured our stay here was on our check out day we were told that there was no one coming until the next day, but when we asked to leave our car in the garage while at the beach for a few hours we were told no. That garage was still empty when we left so again, not the welcome you expect for thousands of dollars. No contact since...

Owner's Response: I’m sorry your stay was so disappointing, but glad the oceanfront location made up for the inconveniences. The misunderstanding about check-out and parking was an unfortunate miscommunication. We did have another tenant coming in the day you left, or I would have gladly allowed you to park after check-out. There is typically cleaning supplies in the apartment; I apologize that they had either run out or been removed by a previous tenant. I'll be sure to check and replenish more often.

Great house for family/girls getaway. This was our 1st year renting this oceanfront house and we loved it. Clean, spacious and great location. Beautiful view of the ocean from the house and easy walk to local restaurants stores etc. Looking forward to returning next summer with the family.

A wonderful vacation home with an incredible view!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed this lovely home for a week and it was great! The space was bigger than I had imagined and having the porch was a wonderful extra space for the kids during the day and adults in the evening. The owners were very easy to contact and even provided a list of amenities the island has to offer.

Best spot on the ocean!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Geri the owner is very accommodating and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend staying at this beachfront home. We had a beautiful deck to watch the dolphins as they went by most days. Great location and walking distance to many local places.
