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 Brant Beach

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!

Ideal beach house

  • 5 of 5

Just steps away from the beach, more than ample parking, and it really is a "classic" beach house. The decor was great. The beds comfortable. Kitchen a bit dated but not an issue at all for us. You're on vacation, who wants to cook anyways. Had to bring linens and towels, but not a big deal. Owner had great communication before and during our visit. Lots of family history in the place evident by the photos and hand drawn cards, actually made you feel like you were visiting a friends beach house and not renting it. Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Kevin! Happy you felt at home, we will be adding linens and towels as part of the rental package in the future. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! Michelle and John

Charming beach house a few steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family Thanksgiving in this picturesque beach house so close to the beach. We sat on the front porch on the cute wicker furniture and spent a lot of time walking on the beach. The house had everything necessary for our Thanksgiving dinner prep and we enjoyed having a fire in the large brick fireplace. Very homey and cozy!

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.

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.
