About Donna Boehringer

My husband, Paul, worked in hospital administration and is newly retired. We are recently empty nesters! My daughter moved to Wisconsin for her first job and my son is currently in college. We love the beach and try to get to the beach as much as we can! I love that LBI is like living back in the 60's. My kids when they were growing up used to get on their bikes in the morning and take off with friends to hit the beach or do other fun shore things. Often, I wouldn't see them until 10 pm that night!

Donna Boehringer purchased this condo in 1999

Why Donna Boehringer chose Harvey Cedars

Both my husband and I were always dying for a beach house (oceanfront duplex to be exact!) We purchased our wonderful house in 1999. Being from the Philadelphia Area, we used to go more south to the beach and never really knew much about LBI. When we started looking someone recommended that we check out LBI. We did, we fell in love! After buying the house and experiencing LBI we wouldn't go anywhere else!

We fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it, and very unlike us (my husband will research buying a toaster in detail!) we made an offer on the house the next day and haven't looked back!

We loved the private access to the beach, the beach itself is fabulous and it has unbelievable decks! Plus it has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on each floor and great outdoor showers. Basically it was designed great! We did have work to do though. It didn't have air. Central Air was our first major enhancement to the house. We also added gas heat, which allowed us to put in natural gas grills. The next major project was replacing the kitchens (granite and stainless appliances) and updated the bathrooms. Most recently we replaced the siding on the house and replaced all the sliding glass doors (12 in total - 6 on each floor!), while we were at it we also completely redid the outside showers, they're done completely in plastic wood so they are easy to sanitize and clean! Our guests actually love the showers so much they prefer showering outside rather than inside!

What makes this condo unique

We are lucky to have a private walkway to the beach, which makes running back and forth, even for little ones - so easy!

The decks are absolutely fabulous! And we have great deck furniture, tables chairs and lounges. We have lighting so you can even spend time on the deck even at night!

The house has fabulous windows and light availablility. There are 4 sets of sliding glass door in living/dining area along with another bank of windows. 2 of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that access the deck and the 3rd bedroom has two windows.

As noted above, we pride ourselves in keeping our house in great working order and making it as comfortable for our guests as we can. We leave our address and email address at the house and ask for feedback and suggestions. Through the years we implemented many suggestions, including adding outside lighting on the deck on the first floor, adding a ceiling fan, adding internet access and many other items!

Our house is on the narrowest street on the island - only 2 blocks wide (approximately 10 houses wide.)

Because it's only two blocks wide our beach is never crowded even during peak summer weeks!

There's great bay access just down the street and we are within walking distance to Sunset Park which has free concerts every Wednesday during the summer. The park also has a great playground, ball field, tennis court and bay access for boating and crabbing.

LBI has fabulous restaurants to suit every taste.

Relaxed Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We have booked a number of beach homes over the years, and this was by far the most delightful of them all. Donna has beautifully furnished the home for live-ability. Six adults and never a mess because the layout is so user friendly. Every room, including the kitchen, had just what was needed.

The location was superb. Walk right out to an expansive beach, or stop on the dune for a rest in the hammock. Relax on the roomy deck and watch the men wrestle with the grill. Delightful.

Perfect Summer Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our third year staying at Donna & Paul's beach house. It is comfortable, inviting, clean and convenient. It's just like home.

The decks are great. The kitchen is more than will equipped and the ocean is just steps away. If you are looking for peace and solitude this is the place for you!

The beach house was clean, updated, comfortable, and the access to the beach from the house was marvelous. The owners were gracious and left you alone and made you feel like you were home away from home. We had a great time!!

My family loved our vacay here at this beautifully tranquil location! It's the perfect spot for the family to get together.The house has everything you'll need plus it is on your own (practically) private beach. We loved the hammock area overlooking the ocean. We grilled on a fab gas grill. My son-in-law, Adam, made the greatest wings and ribs one night.My son, Matt fed the family bluefish, another night, freshly caught in LBI.Matt loved the fishing.I loved all the light the sliding glass doors provide.There is also plenty of outside seating for eating meals al fresco or lounging while sipping your morning coffee. Loved the coastal décor too.There is even a lighthouse shower curtain. We did do some outing though we almost hated to leave the house. My mom loved the trip to Barnegat lighthouse and we had great take out from Off the Hook in Viking Village. My daughter, Lyndsay, and I had brunch at Sandbox Café and loved their pancake sizzlers. We ate at Shore Fire Grille one night.We ate outside and the food and service was great. We also loved Baked on the Beach's awesome goodies and enjoyed How You Brewin coffee. We also took walks to Sunset Park just a few blocks away to watch the awesomeness of sunsets. We all loved the place. Granny kept saying that I must be rich to be able to stay here because it was so lovely. Donna and Paul, the owners, were very nice and very responsive. It was a joy to stay here for a week. I heartily recommend this for a relaxing vacation from your busy life. Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the honeysuckle in the ocean breeze.
