Why Lynn Nicholas chose Beach Haven

We shopped for a beach house on Long Beach Island, because it is quieter than some other New Jersey Beaches. We prefer beaches with no boardwalks and large hotels. We specifically fell in love with Historic Beach Haven because of its charm, the beautiful homes, and the quiet neighborhoods. After looking at almost 20 houses, we found this gem. The moment we stepped inside, we just fell in love with house. On the outside, it looks like a charming beach cottage, with the fabulous wrap around screened porch, but the inside has been recently updated with modern ammenities, without losing the charm. The two staircases lead to fantastic bedrooms upstairs. After we stayed in the house the first time, we felt like we were right at home, and we didn't want to leave. The former owner said the house would wrap its arms around you and make you feel right at home...and it did.

What makes this house unique

The large wrap around porch offers hours of cool breezes while you sit and listen to music on the outdoor speakers and watch the people go by. There are two small french doors on either side of the house that can be opened to the screened porch to allow the ocean breeze to fill the house. The two staircases lead to four themed bedrooms each of which has its own personality. There is an outdoor shower for washing away the sand, when returning from the beach and also supplements the two interior bathrooms.

Exceeded Expectations for a 50th Birthday Celebration !!

  • 5 of 5

Had the absolute privilege to stay in this beautiful home for a long weekend with 3 other couples. I have vacationed on the island every summer for the last 45 years and had always wanted to stay in a Victorian home w/ a wrap-around porch. Needless to say, my wish came true and I rang in my 50th year in my favorite place, with my favorite people on earth. This home easily accommodated 8 of us. The location and amenities were are sheer perfection. The owner is very commutative and gracious. Would love to come back for a long weekend next fall.

Great house in Beach Haven

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with another family last week (4 children total) and thought it was great. The bedroom set up works well for 2 families- 2 bedrooms on each side of the second floor, bisected by a bathroom. The house is clean, well decorated, updated and has everything you need including beach chairs, sheets, towels and boogie boards. The large wrap around porch was great for lounging around and the fenced in back area was perfect for our kids to run around and ride their scooters on the brick path. Its close to the beach and to everything in Beach Haven you want to go to. Owners were a pleasure to deal with.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a week at this house with family and friends. Loved the wrap around deck as we spent several nights out there playing games protected from bugs but still enjoying the warm summer nights. Weather was great except for final night when 70mph winds came thru with severe thunderstorms and the home took a little beating. House offers everything you could need with the updated kitchen, outdoor shower, two full baths inside, outdoor grill with lounge area and more. TV area could be moved so more people can watch at once but not a major thing on vacation at the shore. Home is also nice and close to many attractions and shopping.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your time at our house and hope to see you again in 2013. Please know that all damage that the house sustained as a result of the rogue storm was repaired promptly. We are also investigating options on how to enhance living room layout to improve the TV watching experience for future guests.

Located in hisoric Beach Haven, this house is a short 1.5 block walk to the beach. It sits in a quite neighborhood with the local library right across the street. The local live theater with an ice cream parlor is just a few blocks away. The house is convenient to restaurants, shopping, and Fantasy Island. Fantasy Island is an amusement park on LBI, which is family oriented with rides, arcade games, ice cream, water park, and lots of shopping. Groceries are also a short walk away as well. The nearest cross street boasts a bike lane for easy and safe biking through much of the greater Beach Haven Area. You can park your car the day you arrive, and not move it until the day you have to leave!!
