About Robert

My wife and I are full time medical researchers but have as a hobby renovating and building houses for ourselves and for investment purposes. We've built or renovated 3 houses on Long Beach Island (LBI) and another in North NJ. We build each house to live in, so we don't scrimp or cut corners. We started out in Barnegat Light near the boulevard, but with each new house we moved closer to the ocean. When we found a buildable oceanfront lot in North Beach we couldn't resist the chance to build our dream house right on the beach. We bought the lot in 2006 and finished the design and building in 2009.

Robert purchased this house in 2009

Why Robert chose North Beach Haven

My wife and I love LBI and have been vacationing here for 20 years. We've owned property on LBI for more than 15 years. North Beach is an ideal family community with beautiful beaches and family-oriented activities.

What makes this house unique

Long Beach Island (LBI) is one of the premier vacation destinations in New Jersey. It offers incredible white sandy beaches, a wide variety of great restaurants, shops, amusement parks, golf, miniature golf, water sports, biking, fishing and crabbing. Atlantic City is 45 minutes away, northern New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York are all readily accessible. The house is in North Beach which is located between Harvey Cedars and Surf City on the north end of LBI. North Beach is very family friendly with beautiful beaches and family oriented attractions close at hand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Robert & Dorothy, Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our vacation at your home. The home is so well thought out. The Family Rooms are large & comfortable, and the en-suite baths made everyone have their own private spaces. You had all the things needed for cooking and dining in or out. The children loved the private beach. Our girls said this was the best place we've rented so far. We are looking forward to coming back next year.

Wonderful oceanfront enclave

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this house for a week in each of the past three years and will return again I am sure. The nicest home we've rented on LBI over the last 4 decades. Easily handles a large group with enough space for privacy. All rooms have private baths (a BIG plus). The elevator makes this a great home for visitors with aging family members. Deck(s) and views are wonderful. The large kitchen with dual sinks lends itself to great family cooking efforts. Frequent dolphin and even whale sightings are an added bonus. North Beach is a non-commercial section of LBI so there is no commercial activity around the home. Just a wonderful place to spend some time with friends and/or family.

The perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

Elegant but comfortable.

Fully appointed but not cluttered.

Virtually deserted beach but lifeguard nearby.

Pristine condition but a gracious owner.

Possibly the best rental on LBI.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our house. We love LBI and the house was designed for use by our extended family and for our new and returning renters. It is great that LBI has recovered so well from Sandy. Best wishes to all for the summer.

Have been renting on LBI for the last 16 years and this is one of the nicest; well equiped houses we have rented. Location and views are amazing; I just hope it survived Sandy.

Owner's Response: Dear Returning & Prospective Renters, Sandy hit North Beach Ocean Front properties pretty hard, but for us damage was limited to ground/garage level. We had no damage at all to 1st or 2nd floor living levels. Even so we ripped out the entire ground/garage level and are replacing ground level AC units, heating, hot water, garage doors, etc. The repairs were finished in May. My family was there for Memorial Day week to make sure everything is perfect for this summer's renters. On the northern end of LBI North Beach was hit hardest by Sandy, but Ship Bottom, Surf City, Loveladies and Barnegat Light were all in pretty good shape. Many of you may have seen the pictures of awful devastation on LBI. I'm happy to report that LBI is all back to normal and in great shape for this summer. Hope to see you at our North Beach house.
