About Maureen and Joe Cretella

Family owned beach house. We have been on LBI for 12 years and cannot think of a nicer place to spend time with family.

Maureen and Joe Cretella purchased this house in 2000

Why Maureen and Joe Cretella chose Barnegat Light

We are relocating to another beach house in the area and want to try renting our first beach house rather than selling it,

What makes this house unique

We can walk to the beach, the bay, lighthouse, walk to family friendly restaurants, and of course groceries at White's ! We enjoy boating and fishing. Our children can easily walk to the beach and bike ride whenever they want. Relaxing and reading on the deck is quite enjoyable.

Park and picnic area three houses away, tennis courts, basketball and skateboarding as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just went to look at the house for our summer stay. New hardwood floors and flat screen TVs have just been installed.

The house is beautiful, we can't wait for our summer week in July.

3rd year in a row!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here for the third year in a row and it keeps getting better! The continual updates they keep making to the house makes it a true home away from home and very family friendly! I hope we can make it for 4th time!!

3rd Times The Charm

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our 3rd year at this lovely beach house and it gets better and better every year. The house feels more like a home so comfortable and cozy you forget your in someone else's home. The amenities that are provided improve and impress us each and every year. This is a wonderful place to vacation with family and friends and we are looking forward to making 2017 our 4th year in row creating memories here. We appreciate that the owners go above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

Happy 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We had 27 people spaced throughout the week, most staying at least two nights. It never felt crowded. The great room was wonderful. The bay on one side and the ocean on the other was great. The beach was clean and the family had fun in the ocean. The free buses around the island was a great feature. Four of us got in and road almost the complete circuit for the fun of it. My wife walked to the light house every day. One person said that the best thing was seeing the sunrise in the east.

Joe provided a nice beach wheelchair for one of our family.

The house, location and amenities were very good.

Our extended family including grown children and grandchildren was held during the 4th of July week.

This home, I do say home, was perfect for all of us. As the listing says, there are so many amenities, more than we could have expected. The décor is so 'beachy' and we were all so comfortable. Add to that the parade, so old fashioned and inclusive of the spectators and the participants. We had beautiful sunsets and plenty of fun at the beach. The owners went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, they are so gracious. All of us cannot wait until the summer of 2016 so that we can return.

Perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect rental for my family. We have a family of 15 and we all slept comfortably in this house. We even were able to accommodate some additional guests. This home was also well stocked with towels, awesome beach chairs and well kept bicycles. With a family this large, having 2 refrigerators was also a huge bonus. The amenities were awesome - from the spa-like outdoor shower to the flat screen TVs to enjoy on a rainy day. There is also plenty to do nearby. Ocean and bay are each a block away. There is a playground around the corner and the lighthouse and a great ice cream shop, Poppy's, is within walking distance. I would highly recommend this rental for families or large parties.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

For an entire week I have tried to think of the words to describe our fabulous stay at this incredible beach home. Our family gathered from 5 states for a reunion and Mom's 80th birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived, this beautiful home (and the owners!) said "Welcome!" in so many ways. With as many as 13 family members in attendance, there was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable and relaxed. With all the necessities and then some, and so many extras such as bed linens, bath & beach towels provided, we felt as if this place was just waiting and ready for our arrival. The wonderfully equipped kitchen and gas grill, as well as ample seating inside & out, made our large mealtimes easy to prepare and festive to enjoy. Maureen provided a wealth of information which covered options for shopping, dining, beach access including mobility accessible areas, and other highlights available to us. The bikes were used every day for beach and shopping excursions. From the mornings several of us ventured to the beach to see the sunrise, (some going every morning!) to days enjoying the sun, waves, and ocean breezes, from morning dolphin sightings to the times we returned from days on the beautiful shore, from morning coffee on the porch to lying down for a peaceful night's rest, this home was all we could have expected and so much more. Thank you, Maureen & Joe, for helping us make memories we will treasure forever!
