a wonderful week right on the beach in a warm and well equipped house with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week with my 90 year old mother. The house is right on the beach with great views, even when just sitting on the deck (the lower level) and even my 90 year old mother who has trouble walking was able to get out and sit on the beach each day. The owner, John, is so friendly and helpful. I mentioned we were a few wineglasses short and voila with a half hour, he had purchased more wine glasses and then even some more the next day (in a different style!). He also told me I had a flat tire and came back with an aerosol can to fix my tire, which it did perfectly. I was floored! The kitchen is very well equipped, not like some houses that skimp on these things. It was quiet, restful and beautiful. I even had a few good swims at the beginning of October. There were some very nice restaurants not too far away, but also convenient shopping to eat at home. I liked the beach, nautical motif throughout--perfect for vacation lightheartedness. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Nice property. Beautiful location.

Only problem was leakage when it rained.

Had to use the towels we had to rent to soak up flooding. Would be better if owner either fixed the problem or provided towels for this situation so that we did not damage the rented ones.

Owner's Response: Amy B., your stay of May 11th doesn't quite match the name of the family that was staying during that time frame. That family has returned to the house multiple times. This May there has been a fair amount of rain. Using the word "flooding", I think, is a bit over the top. We recently became aware of one of the glider Anderson windows that needed attention and we committed $1,300 to an Anderson window distributor that will be installing a storm window in the very near future. We also have to keep an eye on the slider track that the drain holes don't fill up with sand. If you had simply called, texted or emailed us, we would have sent someone immediately to address the problem....and I believe the weekend that you were there, we did just that. It's sad that with the state of world that we live in that you chose to focus on putting a negative review out instead of focusing on how blessed you are to have spent Mother's Day weekend on the beach with some of your loved ones. All the best, John & Diane

Fall Visit

  • 5 of 5

After vacationing every summer on LBI for the past two decades, our family decided to spend a long weekend in November. We lucked-out with both the home we rented and the weather. Our rental was oceanfront, having a tremendous view of the beach from an oversized rear deck. The house was perfect for our get-a-way; huge kitchen table where we could play board games at night and share family meals. The Island was more active than I expected, with many shops and restaurants open, and was certainly a lot easier to get around without all the traffic. If you are looking for a quick escape, we definitely recommend this house - I'm sure its great any time of year.

Fall Getaway/Girls 50th Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a short weekend stay for 5 girlfriends celebrating a 50th birthday. The best part of staying at this house is the the ocean view. Even though we had a little rain, the sunrises and sunsets were absolutely breathtaking. Took a while to get used to blinking streetlights and practically empty beach because I've always stayed on LBI during the summer, but I think Fall is my new favorite season now.
