Caroline Schoudel purchased this house in 2013
We fell in love with this classic shore house. It has a great location and proximity to the beach and the attractions of Beach Haven, beautiful wrap around porch, great back yard and 5 bedrooms and plenty of space.
We are putting in a new state of the art kitchen and all new appliances is winter of 2013/2014. The pool is being installed 11/15/13.
Beautifully decorated, new kitchen, 5 bedrooms, pool and only 4 houses to the beach. Great location just two blocks to the park and Pearl Street Market, and gazebo.
We have rented on LBI for years. It is heaven on earth. We had such an amazing time and this house really made our vacation one of the best we have ever had. First of all the location is amazing, quick walk to the beach, little to no traffic on Atlantic street, very comforting with the little ones crossing. Walked to Pearl Street market each morning for coffee and treats. Was a short walk or quick bike to all the attractions in Beach Haven ( Fantasy Island, Seashell, Barrys do me a Flavor...) The house was beautifully decorated, well appointed and extremely comfortable for our family and guests numbering 12. The front porch was awesome. We have never rented with a pool before. It is a must going forward. The backyard was very private and relaxing. We spent most nights letting the kids swim while the adults grilled and enjoyed cocktails. Already Booked our week for next year!
This was our first time in LBI and we loved it! We found this home to be exceptionally accommodating for our group of nine including two children. The house itself is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed having coffee and drinks on the porch and spending time on the backyard patio. Nothing was better than taking a dip in the pool after a long day at the beach....the home is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. We walked to everything including local restaurants, shops, and Fantasy Island. We would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to come back in the future!
We had an amazing time at this beautiful beach house. The house is fabulous - it's a romantic Victorian house (big front porch with rockers, pink climbing rose bushes) with modern everything. It's decorated beautifully and feels like you stepped into the pages of Coastal Living. The new kitchen is a dream with driftwood-looking cabinets and high-end appliances, Bosch, Sub-Zero, etc., and is very well equipped. Great, flat screen smart TV in the living room, not that we watched it very much- there was too much to do. The beds were really comfy, even better than my bed at home! But, probably the best part was the backyard with the lovely pool. We came off the beach every day and all hung out in the pool. The kids loved it! And, it seems that pools are pretty rare in Beach Haven. The back patio is so relaxing- we drank wine and cooked on the grill, while the kids swam. Heaven! Finally, this location is the best we've found on LBI. The beach is right there- easy for my kids' potty breaks off the beach! And, so close to all Beach Haven has to offer, but still in a quiet, residential area. Every morning, we walked to Pearl Street Market for morning coffee. We walked everywhere, and hardly used our car all week. All in all, we had a great week in a wonderful house! We all loved our vacation and can't wait to return!
This home I thought was in a very nice location. It was close enough to walk to Pearl Street market ( coffee,lunch, seafood), the liquor store was right there too and a cute little arcade with golf that was just right for our girls (5&3). Can't forget Do me a Flavor ice cream which was just a little farther of a walk but very doable for us. We also, made it to Fantasy Island and Arcade on foot but I would suggest the kids be fed and napped before that walk, a little far ( but we made it). Pearl St which is just a few blocks towards town has a very nice pavilion to look out onto the ocean that was great for the in-laws to view the ocean and the kids play without having to go through the sand which they couldn't do at this time in their lives.
The house sits on a quiet street with a great little uphill path to the ocean at the end of the street just 4 houses away- one (one way)street to cross between house and beach entrance. Coming back from the beach to hang out and eat at the home was nice. It has a very nice( beach feel )brand new kitchen, which was fun to cook in for a week. Out back is a great spot to have lunch and be by the also brand new pool. We loved that it had a fenced in yard.
Caroline has done a very nice job with her furniture and decor choices, it really made the house feel special and cared for. She also was a big help in suggesting places to go or try out since this was our first time in LBI.
We enjoyed ourselves and the home was definitely a big part of our trip, we felt it was a good choice in our decision to get away for a little while from our daily grind. Thanks Caroline
Where should I begin…
The nice is well located and nice BUT
-The house was not ready when we arrived. It was a mess We had the house from 2pm but the owner and an elder woman didn’t leave before 4pm. He was fixing the house, cleaning the porch, finishing installing the kitchen, installing the light switches on the walls, etc.
-When we arrived they told us there was no bed sheets nor bath towels. This was stipulated nowhere – nor on the ad or the lease. The owners told us “go buy some at home depot”… After 30 minutes of arguing and looking around the house we found some sheets and towels in garbage bags in closets. The elder woman told us they were left there by the previous owners… So basically we spent 4 hours cleaning the sheets and making the beds. That took the entire afternoon. And now, the owner has RETAINED A THIRD OF THE DEPOSIT FOR SHEETS RENT AND CLEANING even though we paid for the cleaning lady.
-The pool was very dirty. Someone was supposed to show up and clean it. The next morning we had to call the owners because it was not taken care of. The water was in the 50s with apparently no heating system.
-The garden was not finished neither. They had put old blankets to cover the soil next to the pool where I guess there was supposed to grass. -There was no hot water the first night
-The last day the owner’s wife texted us to tell us to leave at 2pm. At the signature of the lease we had paid extra to stay until 6pm. She replied that “she would not believe it” and “Is too late I have other renters coming in”. she was being very rude. After checking her emails she admitted she was wrong. So basically she double rented the house on Memorial Day… We left at 5:20pm leaving the house perfectly cleaned.
The whole relation with the owners was highly unpleasant. Too bad the house is ok but I would NOT recommend it!
This beautiful home is located it in the heart of historic Beach Haven, in the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club neighborhood. It is 4 houses from the beach and walk to all Beach Haven attractions ie. Fantasy Island, Thundering Surf water park, showplace, surf light theater, Bay Village, restaurants.....
