Loved the location but the house needs updating

  • 3 of 5

We had a great week in LBI as we always do. We have stayed in many houses on the island. We found the home to very outdated and not very clean. All of the furniture is old. The mattresses are old. The bathrooms needed a good cleaning.

I did make use of the outdoor shower but it was also very dirty. I wore flip flops. There was a shower caddy that had 4 USED bars of soap in it as well as a used poof.

I think the house would reap the owners more rewards if they updated the whole house including all of the furnishings, as well as a throrogh cleaning. The bushes in the front need trimming, they block the only view you have of the beach entry. The backyard was also VERY overgrown and would benefit from a fence as the neighbors yards are all visible when you are sitting outside.

The owners were very nice but we would not rent there again.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry that the house didn't meet your expectations. It is always our goal to make sure that all of our guests have a fabulous experience. I will bring up all of your comments at our end-of-season meeting, and we will take everything into consideration. We really wish you had told us directly that you felt cleanliness was an issue. The house is professionally cleaned after every renter, and my mother is there with the cleaning team, washing bedspreads and floor mats as well. If something was amiss, the cleaner would have absolutely returned to rectify the issue. We pride ourselves on being very responsive to our renters if any issues arise during their stay with us.

Great house with prime location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well laid out and Leanne is proud and protective of it. I got there first before The Gang arrived and I took the opportunity to get familiar with the property. Opened a cold beer and organized the place. Hung Christmas lights over the deck and relaxed. Some easy suggestions, they should install an angled plastic roof below top deck. Funnel rain water out and keep back door/ storage area dry. Lights and fans should be a separate switch. AC units are VERY moist. Set it to 73-74 and leave it. That's it. See you next year!!! 😁�😁�

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable and very clean. There are three good sized bedrooms with three bathrooms. The house has been updated and all the appliances are newer. There were beach chairs for us to use along with an umbrella. The walk to the beach was a block away and the bay is about three blocks away. The washer/dryer came in handy. There is a large sized outdoor table that seats 8. The outdoor shower was spacious and has a light if you choose to shower at night. The owners were lovely. Would definitely rent there again.

An Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house provided us with a phenomenal vacation! Our four teenagers all had a great time and enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, places to eat, and places such as mini golf within minutes. We loved the cute table in the backyard where we liked to sit at night. We also liked how the outdoor shower had a light and was conveniently on the deck. The open windows supplied a very relaxing ocean breeze at all times! Additionally, the owners showed us such warm hospitality such as when they immediately let us borrow a beach umbrella upon hearing of our daughter's terrible sunburn. This was by far our favorite house we have stayed at in LBI!!!

Great location, great house.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is great. Very clean inside and plenty of space for 8, easily. Backyard is beautiful and a great place to eat - there's a grill out back as well.

The location is so perfect that you don't even need a car. On a side street so there's no constant traffic out front, but still just a 2-minute walk to the beach. One general market and a seafood market are within walking distance, and several restaurants (and an ice cream place) too.

Quick story about how good the owners are - in the middle of the week, the propane ran out for the grill and I texted the contact # that I had about it (turns out she's the owner's daughter). The owner then showed up with a new tank almost immediately - I checked my phone after he left, and he was there exactly 7 minutes after I sent the text. I don't know how they did that, but everyone was happy. I would definitely rent here again.
