Excellent Stay on LBI

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July 2015 and again in 2016 and loved it both times. The first time was with a 1 child, her parents, and me, the grandma, and the next time we had added a newborn. We did not use the pullout sofa as the children slept in their parents' room.

I have stayed on LBI for almost 30 years and a place in the ocean block has so much to offer. There's nothing better than just walking down to the beach in the morning with my granddaughter and a cup of coffee. It's so easy from this house! Only 4 houses from the dunes, it's so convenient! The house itself is all we needed for our group. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the air conditioning kept us cool even on the hottest days. The outdoor shower is genius, either for an actual shower or just getting sand off feet.

The owners are fantastic! Debbie and her family are the perfect hosts. In 2015 the owners were not staying in the house the week we were there and we had a great time. In 2016 the owners were staying in the house the week we were there and we had an even better time. Debbie invited us to join her and her family in the garage space in the evening, she asked us if we needed anything off-island one day as she was going shopping, she introduced us to her sweet little dogs, and she and the family were just so kind to all of us. I really can't say enough good things about this family.

The only reason I haven't booked this house for 2017 is because we are looking to rent a place including my son and his family. If that falls through I will get in touch Debbie immediately. Even if we don't rent from them, we plan to stop by to say hi. Thanks Mihalics!

Love LBI & this house

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful , cozy apartment and perfect location! Central to everything on LBI yet just steps from the beach. We drove off LBI's main road onto a quiet street and were instantly charmed. You'd never know you were so close to the shops. The accommodations were just right for our group of five...two children, their parents and me, Grammy. Did not need the pull-out couch since my granddaughter slept in her Pack n Play in her parents room. Everything we needed was right there...we didn't have to shop for anything except groceries. Loved the deck and that my grandson could safely ride a bike on the street.The owners were very helpful and allowed us to hold my granddaughter's birthday party at the garage. Their forethought and kindness helped us to make priceless memories. The beach was close (wonderful for the kids and Grammy!) and at that point is wide and very clean. Early every morning the beach tractors are out cleaning & smoothing out the sand. A very short walk to the top of the dunes and a bench gave us the chance each day to see a wonderful sunrise and watch the moon rise over the ocean...got some incredible photos :) You can get down to the beach two ways: a traditional wooden walkway or a wooden handicapped walkway. If you like Key Lime pie there is a bakery nearby which sells an incredible one :) Many thanks to our gracious hosts for sharing their little corner of the seaside with us. Final note....grandson & his dad were able to capture quite a few pokemon, too!

Location is great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week, had a great time & are going back next year! We have 3 small children so location to beach was key for us. The apartment was on a quiet street, clean & had everything we needed. Owners were friendly & helpful. I would highly recommend!!

Great location - close to the beach, shopping and causeway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the upstairs unit of this older property located on a quiet street two houses from the beach. The best part is the great location. The upstairs unit was clean and well maintained considering the house itself is very old. New washer in the garage and dryer in the kitchen were great to have. Window air conditioners are noisy but at least we had cooling. Every room has a ceiling fan which works fine at night unless its very hot. Utensils were OK, everything you need except a wine bottle opener and iron. No DVD player but we were able to connect our laptop to the flat screen TV to watch movies. Each bedroom and small living/dining room has a TV. Bathroom is very small but works. The downstairs outside shower was a lifesaver. Overall a good choice for a couple or small family and reasonable priced for LBI. Don't try any more than four in this compact unit. The owner was very responsive and refunded our security deposit promptly. Bring your own beach chairs and umbrellas because the owner does want theirs used. This was a challenge since we flew in from Denver and did not have our own, but we "borrowed" from Home Depot and Costco. Best shopping is off the island in Manahawkin at Costco and Shop Rite for groceries. Best seafood restaurant we found is in Manahawkin at Mud City Crabhouse. Great crab cakes, fresh seafood and reasonable prices.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks & it was fantastic! The owner was very helpful with any questions we had. Being so close to the beach was very nice also. Quiet street & little traffic makes it safer for children to ride bikes. The shuttle that runs up & down the island is an added bonus. We didn't drive anywhere the whole time we were there. Would stay here again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. It was a great location. Only a few houses from the beach. And close enough to walk to eat or shop. Reserving the house was so easy and the owners were great. They answered any questions we had right away. The house was clean and perfect for us. The garage was a nice place to sit and relax when the kids went to bed. The outdoor shower was big and great for after the beach. We can't wait to stay here next summer!
