About michelle corallo

We were renters on LBI all of my life until we bought this property in 1973. I spent every summer of my wonder years on the island, made great friends and ended up marrying one of the lifeguards I worked with on the beach, down there. In this picture are two women that I played with on the beach as a child. These are our children who have become great friends over the years.

Why michelle corallo chose Long Beach Island

I have found this area of Long Beach Island to be magical. It is sweet, and seemingly untouched. We are all perfectly content to spend time on the beach surfing, skimboarding, running, body surfing and reading.

What makes this house unique

Most people I talk to who come down here love that they can totally be themselves. It is rare to see women with make-up on and their hair done. This seems to be the place where you can put on your most comfortable clothes, throw on your flip flops and chill on the front porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming beach house in an ideal location: second house down from the ocean road and right up the street from an ice cream store. The well-stocked eat-in kitchen with a dishwasher, coffee maker and roomy storage closet was greatly appreciated. The dining room comfortably seated eight, and the living room with its flat-screen TV, cute decorations and books on the history of LBI was quite pleasant as well. Other bonuses were a huge off-street parking area, a front porch with plenty of seating, a back patio with lots of furniture and an outdoor shower, and a laundry room. When we arrived, the house was clean and ready for us to move in. A fun time was had by all! I would highly recommend this house to those interested in a fantastic beach vacation!

Weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured, Michelle did a great job of explaining everything prior to the stay, there was plenty of room for our group and it was very very close to the beach! We had a wonderful time!

Great stay at a classic beach house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this classic beach house, located just a 2 minute walk from the beach on Long Beach Island. The house was really what you picture when you think "beach house" - decorated very comfortably with pictures and mementos of seasons at the beach gone by. The kitchen was perfectly functional and well stocked, and our 4 adults and 4 teenagers were very comfortable. There is only one full indoor bathroom (as well as a half bath) but we all enjoyed using the outdoor shower. There's plenty of space outside to barbecue and eat, and the house is well stocked with board games and videos if the weather turned bad. We loved that we were so close to the beach, which was uncrowded (party due to our bad luck with weather the weekend we were there...) It isn't super fancy, but clean and had everything that we needed to enjoy ourselves for the weekend, and was a good value. Michelle was very helpful in making sure we knew how to get to the house, how to get in, and was attentive in making sure that everything was going smoothly. We'd definitely recommend the house to other families or groups looking for a reasonably priced place to stay well situated close to the beach.

Great house steps from beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time in lbi and in the house. You simply can't beat the location and convenience of being so close to the beach. House is old but in great condition, very clean, and comfortable. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to relax by the shore.

Location, Location, Location! Charming house, great porch.

  • 4 of 5

This house is a bit old, but the location can't be beat and it is fully functional. The beach and two ice cream places are right there. We rented bikes and could basically get anywhere else. Has everything you need. We had a good weather week. If the heat is bad, it might get uncomfortable. Michele was very responsive to all my inquiries. Great stay!

Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, the entire experience was great. Michelle was extremely friendly, helpful and responsive and was able to answer all of my questions prior to arriving at the property, and then again when we even arrived at the house! The house sits on a block that is literally steps away from the beach (no more than half a block to be exact!) The house is the only one of its kind on the block, a true beach house with a lot of family filled memories from generations past. It's a beautiful clean and "homey" feel beach house, with MORE than enough room to accommodate the group of 8 that we had. (spacious!)

There's a full downstairs with living room, dining room, sit in kitchen with a 1/2 bath and access to the backyard, along with a full upstairs w/ 4 bedrooms which all have doors which can be closed for privacy OR left open to connect rooms (great if you're a family w/ little ones to keep an eye on!) Full bathroom upstairs (only 1 shower in the house, but there's an outdoor shower which appears private as well). The outdoor area has plenty of chairs/seating for bbq (gas grill is there for use, but we didn't end up using it during our short weekend stay), and even plenty of room to lay out / lounge around at the end of the driveway when the beachy weather gets a little temperamental. The front porch also has additional seating (covered) for evening relaxation after a nice day at the beach.

Plenty of restaurants / places to eat in surrounding area (pizza / ice cream 2 blocks away) and approx. a 12 min. walk to Daddy-O's bar & restaurant / rooftop. Upon arriving, we decided to see what others may have left at the house previously (garbage bags, dish soap, sponge, etc.) then drive to the acme for anything else we needed which was only 5 minutes away. You MUST bring your own shower / beach towels, in addition to sheets (and pillow cases!). Plenty of pillows were provided along with blankets. Anything else that you may need, you can buy at the ACME, so don't fret if you forgot something!

If you're looking for modern, this house is not it, but if you want the experience of being at the beach in a beautiful lived in, yet welcoming and cozy home, then this is the house for you! Overall such a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend this to friends and my own family in the future. Thank you Michelle and family for allowing us to stay!!!

The house is located in a very residential area of the island. However, a 1/4 mile down the street is a facility where you can play tennis, baseball, windsurf, play basketball, play on a playground and utilize a bay beach with a gazebo. Great for watching the sunset :-)

If you prefer more tourist attractions, four miles down the road you will find a water park, an amusement park, shops, restaurants and plenty of miniature golfing.
