The ocean view is excellent. there is pretty much space inside. Four bedrooms will accommodate pretty many people. the negative is that it seemed a bit run down and outdated for the price. We rented late in the season so it might have been a bit fresher in early season. There were rusty air conditioning vents particularly bothersome above master bed. We loved the location but thought the interior could use a makeover or price should be a bit lower. Owners were friendly and responsive.
Lovely location and property, some upgrades needed
We stayed DuneRise at the beginning of September and really enjoyed being in this part of LBI. The lower level of the duplex that we stayed in is in very good condition and clean. There is very good access to the beach. This part of LBI is uncongested, making for a particularly restful area to vacation.
The landlord was very easy to deal with, available by text message and quickly responsive.
There were a couple of disappointments. With the exception of the Queen bed, the mattresses/beds drew complaints from several family members as being too soft/uncomfortable. Also, the propane grill is old and beat up and was difficult to make function effectively. Even though we purchased propane, one night we ended up having to cook our burgers and vegetables indoors because we couldn't get the grill to burn hot enough for barbecuing.
It also proved frustrating to family members, (even though it should have been evident from the property's photos), that you can't see the ocean waves from the lower level property. You can glimpse the ocean when you are standing, but when you are sitting outside you can't see the waves.
Despite these limitations, a very desirable and comfortable place to vacation.
Fabulous views, great location and overall wonderful place to stay.
The upper level apartment provided excellent views of the ocean. The rooms were comfortable and neighborhood was quiet.
We had a great stay. Loved being away from the crowds, beach was pristine. The path to the beach was steep so we opted for the public entrance a few yards further and that put us closer to the lifeguards. Well equipped, beautiful views, all as expected for the area and the price. Would definitely stay again. Couple of very minor things addressed immediately and got an early check in because they texted me when the caretaker was done cleaning! Super customer friendly!
Amazing beach location
The location is amazing. lower unit was easily accessible by all ages, up one flight of stairs. The provided beach chairs, umbrella, and toys are a definite plus. The house was appropriately stocked and sized for our multi-generational group of 5 adults and 3 kids. 4 stars only in that I would not describe it as "luxurious" by my west coast standards - it is a well used rental. I was not comfortable using a grill on the lower deck so close to the house, but based on the warped ceiling above it and the fact that the house has not burned down yet, I am clearly in the minority. Very responsive management. It was kind of a bummer early in the season to have a rusted door lock to deal with but minor negatives that did not slow us down and I felt that it was being appropriately addressed. the beds - super comfortable. We had not been on LBI in almost 30 years and we had a wonderful trip to the Island. I would highly recommend this location, especially for young kids.
We had a wonderful family week at this prime ocean front location.
Our family of 8 enjoyed this prime beach front location. The ocean view from the second floor as well as the dunes and sand were ideal. The beach house was comfortable and well equipped. John, the manager was great to work with and attentive to our needs. The available beach chairs and umbrellas were a bonus.
