We built this table ourselves to accommodate our guests. There is shelving underneath for food storage, cook books, meal prep machines (bread maker, ice machine, smoothie maker, ice cream maker etc.). We are fully stocked with cooking pots and pan of various sizes, baking ware, stone wear, including lobster pots, steamers, clam opener, crab claw crackers, hammers and picks. We have fancy glassware of your cocktail party and huggies to enjoy a cold beer in. There are 2 dressers to use to make serving buffet meals a snap. One dresser has drawers of party serving dishes and bowls, trivet and dish towels. The other dresser in cabinet and has games, puzzles, cards and toys for rainy days. The dresser drawers have extra blankets and the set up for the pull-out couch.

6. A bedroom with beachy décor, single bunk on top of queen bed below, small dresser and night stand.
The 3rd bathroom on second floor is a full bathroom with tub and storage cabinet.
Living room on 2nd floor:
Enjoy the ocean & bay views and menagerie of colored glass sun and moon décor in the second Living room. This is a great place to escape to for movie night for the kids, a place to send the second-generation party or to have some peace and quiet when you close the downstairs door. It has an 60 inch big screen TV, popup storage table for puzzles, and game playing. We have over 150 videos from G to R rated movies to entertain our guests. The Wii game station has several games and workout games to choose from. There is seating for 10 on the couch, U couch with full pullout couch and big leather chair.
The front yard has 3 parking spots and additional 3-4 up the left side alley. Do you need to plug in your electric car? We have an OUTLET on the front porch and on the left alley of house.
The back yard has a large teak dining table with umbrella, a teak outdoor living room set, and a large 5 burner grilling station. The outside show is roomy for when you need to bring in the herd of little ones to rinse them before lunch. We have a clothesline to help keep ahead of the wet towel syndrome that sometimes occurs at the beach.
Grand Ole Rooftop Deck:
The 4th floor rooftop deck gives you the opportunity to tune out the world and relax. The hot tub will melt away the worries and let the good times sink in. Panoramic views of the island and surrounding towns over the bridge twinkle at night. You can see Old Barney's Light blip on the left, the causeway bridges rails glow, and to the right the Ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering Borgata Casino that changes color every few minutes. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms. It's nice to have room to sit in comfort and have a cocktail while visiting on the deck when watching the fireworks and the little one’s excitement! Plan your BBQ with friends and dine in the back yard with the large table and bench seating, outdoor living room set, kiddie picnic tables and new grill and large cooler for extra beverages. If you bring your own bikes, please keep them outback and locked up.
This home can also be rented as first floor only (sleeps 8 with 3 bedrooms and pullout couch in living room) including 3 onsite parking spaces, same back yard use and rooftop deck access. (FIRST FLOOR ONLY RENTALS- 3 parking spots are reserved for owner and full second floor lock out for owners use, we do not share back yard or rooftop deck areas- these are for you).
Township now offers a transportation option to the beach. All you have to do is call and a Gator(beach buggy) will pick you up and take you down gear and all to the beach. It will pick you back up when called to take you home.
What to bring:
If you have bikes bring them, if it's too much to carry, rent them down the street. If you like to fish, bring your gear, or just walk up to the bait shop and buy some new presents for your crew to remember your trip.
We have beach chairs and umbrellas for your use, a boogie board and some tubes. The surf shop carries all these items also if you need more or want some other options. We have a toy box with sand toys, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. We supply 10 beach badges. You are able to buy more if needed. The checkers are not that crazy about taking a head count most of the time. Kids under 12 do not need them. Most kids are under 12 (wink, wink).
We have many sport items to borrow while in town as well:
Volleyball set, badminton set, corn hole, soccer balls, kick ball, beach ball, tennis rackets and balls, pickle ball set, racket ball set, and a football.
No matter what weather pack those bathing suits year-round, the hot tub is on the rooftop deck 4 stories up and the views are amazingly soothing. A hot tub certainly takes the sting out of a cloudy rainy day for sure.
The LBI Experience:
Here is some of the must do's if you can fit them in to your relaxing visit.
Fishing on the Black Whale or out of Barnegat Light.
Barnegat Lighthouse trek (214 steps!).
Nardi's Tavern (great bands and pizza, free bus transportation to and from daily).
Skipper Dipper Ice Cream.
Fantasy Island Amusement Park.
Howards Seafood Restaurant (great salmon dishes, and Lobster Bisque!).
Bay Village Schooner's Wharf is a must for shopping, Country Crumb in Bay Village has delicious Elephant ear cookies and Choc. chip cookies to die for!
Country Kettle Fudge should satisfy your sweet tooth. Just as a FYI, I don’t recommend the clam fudge they offer at Chowderfest first weekend of October!
Thundering Surf is fun for all ages with tubing down the lazy river, tubing shoots, a kiddie water playground, a huge mini golf on a 'mountain’, and lots of food and drinks to keep you going.
Go Geocaching with the kids or group! It’s a worldwide scavenger hunt! Set up your account and learn more about this fun outdoor sport before you come down. Do the LBI GeoTrail for those cloudy cool days when the beach is not an option. www.geocaching.com
Take a bucket a net up to the Bayview park and let the little ones find all the creatures in the sea, this is fun for all ages! There is also a playground, water sport lessons (SUP, Kiteboarding, Kayaking) and a place to go out on your own water gear, public bathrooms, pickle ball, basketball, bocce ball, dog park, volleyball. Pack a lunch or wait for the ice cream man at the picnic area. (We have the net gear and buckets to take there, everyone over 12 needs a beach badge here- and Joanie is strict with checking for them).
Concierge and Milestone Event Planning Services:
Are you looking for a wonderful vacation, retreat, holiday stay or want LBI destination wedding? We are ready for you! Do you need help while in town? We can help you with: catering, setting up in house spa treatments, food shopping, arranging rentals for bikes, kayaks, sup's, surfing lessons and more. We offer help to our guests any way we can.

If you have any questions or issues during your stay we are a knock, text or a phone call away to help you or recommend things to go, see or places to eat and coupons we have access to. Please don’t hesitate to ask.
The back part of the second floor and third floor is locked out for Owners who is a Year-Round Tenant, with own entrance, and the far right 2 parking spots next to fence are reserved. We do not share the back yard or rooftop deck areas- these are for you. We have our own 2nd floor backdoor entrance and front deck with grill. You can read our numerous reviews that state our renters loved staying with us and our presence was welcomed when needed. We are here if you need us and just say hi in passing if you don’t. Our home is for your enjoyment. Vacation is time to have fun, laugh, and enjoy all LBI has to offer. Fun in the sun, ocean and bay play if our motto! Please knock, text or call us if you need us.

This is a great place for kids of all ages. Our street is family oriented, slow paced dead end for bikes and playing in the street. Surf shop, candy, toys, ice cream, pizza, and a bait and tackle close by for the kids to walk around safely and enjoy themselves if old enough to be on their own. We are a surfing beach so there are lessons daily if they want to learn how to surf, skim board, stand up paddle board, or kayak. The bay beach is a few blocks away and is soooo much fun with a seining net (long net that 2 people walk with and drag on the seas floor). My husband and I and our kids, nieces and nephews, tenants, and neighborhood kids have spent hours doing this, it is amazing the sea life we have found! My husband, kids and I and our neighbors keep a good eye on small children while in the ocean so there is always a group of protecting eye besides the lifeguards while in renting our home.Kids love learning how to bodysurf with my husband Tom,many get hooked.Fishing is fun too...moreless

My Husband Tom and I and 2 of 4 daughters live here in a lock out part of the home. LBI is such a wonderful place to raise a family, and have a small town life, with a fast paced summer to enjoy. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home and love of LBI to long time renters to LBI and showing Newbies to the Island the why it is such a hot spot year round now. Tom and I have grown up on the island in the summer months and moved down full time in 2006. We got married on our beach and it has been bliss ever since.

Year Purchased: 1957
About the owner: My husband Tom and I both grew up on LBI in the summers. We lived next door to each other until age 10. After 30 years we reconnected at age 40! We have raised 4 daughters here and were married on our beach. We married in 2006 bought my familys home and renovated so we could share LBI with others.
Why the Owner Chose North Beach Haven, Long Beach Township, NJ, USA:
We purposely built the house to having several places to spread out in different living areas, or gather in one spot, indoors and outdoors. This helps with multi- generational families. We love introducing new visitors to the island and showing them the ropes. We also have a great connection with people who have been coming to LBI and our home year after year. We also welcome groups for retreats. We have retreat groups in the months of Sept.-June. We are currently looking for more retreat leaders to fill some weekends with their offerings. If interested please contact me. We look for all kinds of groups: Ladies, Men’s, Artists, Holistic, Spiritual, Healthy Ways, Networking, Business, and more. We opened the LBI GeoTrail Nov. 2013 ask me about Geocaching! The kids will love it, and it is a great thing to do on those cloudy days!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I do milestone event planning: birthdays, anniversaries, repass, christenings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, diner parties, brunches, continental breakfasts and more. If you are planning to have an event please let me know if you need my services. Many homes do not allow parties at their homes on LBI, but there is a need and we have had great success with entertaining for our visitors and have enjoyed their reunion type gatherings. We book for wedding stays and bachelorette weekends. Having raised 4 daughters we have a great understanding of what parents wants and needs are while down on LBI. We suggest what going on for the kids as well as the adults and provide coupons, maps, and brochures for the areas offerings. Sunny days and raining days we have the answers on what to do. Please Don’t Hesitate to ask a question during a stay, and Welcome to “Beach House Retreats on LBI, NJ”.
