About THOMAS BAILEY
The beach house has been in our family for four generations. My wife's grandparents bough the house in the 1960's. I have been coming here since 1999. We have been renting since 1994. We joined VRBO in 2013. We respond quickly to email requests about dates and to answer questions about the house.
THOMAS BAILEY purchased this House in 1965
Why THOMAS BAILEY chose Harvey Cedars
This property is the perfect spot for a quiet family beach vacation. I have enjoyed watching my children playing in the sand and swimming in the ocean. Many cherished family memories have been made at Sea Foam. We are four blocks from town. About 2/10 of a mile from town, easy walk to restaurants, liquor store, shopping, convenient store, town hall, ice cream parlor. The bay beach, perfect for children who can’t swim or are not big enough for the ocean is a half of mile away.The house sleeps 7. Upstairs there are three bedrooms with two twin beds in each. Rooms are cozy and each has an AC and ceiling fan. Downstairs there is a single twin bed off the kitchen with an attached half bath. In addition to the seven beds in bedrooms, there is what we call the sleeping porch. It is not a bedroom, but does have a day bed where someone could sleep. The cottage has a separate entrance, living room, dinning area and kitchen with AC. There are two bedrooms upstairs. The first bedroom has two twin beds with AC. The second bedroom at the top of the stairs has a trundle bed. Two adults can fit, but space is tight, it is better suited for kids, no AC in this bedroom.

Family time at the beach
We absolutely LOVED staying here. The house was full of character and everyone in our group seemed to find their own favorite spot. So close to the beach which made it very convenient. We were there early in the season so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Plenty of room for the 12 of us. We loved being within walking distance to the ice cream parlour which we frequented many times during the week. Having Neptunes market close by was great if we needed any grocery items. We would absolutely stay here again and Tom was a great host.
My mom and dad were looking for an older house in Harvey Cedars for a family reunion/vacation. We needed enough rooms for my family of 4, my sister's family of 6, that was priced right, clean and comfortable, with some updates, and some features to remind us of LBI back in the day. Most importantly we wanted a SHORT WALK TO THE BEACH with many crowds. We felt "at home". We could get to both sides of the island so easily. Both the bayside and the beach in this area is second to none on LBI. We loved fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking in the bay, which brought back many memories, and still has the quaint, peacefulness as it used to have. The beach was wide and uncrowded and the access path was just a few steps away.
We had a wonderful time. Tom, the property manager, was great. He answered all our many questions and checking in and out was a breeze.
Would highly recommend.
The house was lovely. Beach is so close- fourth house to the beach. Amenities just a short walk- pizza, icre cream, coffee, bagels, sandwiches. Small, but wonderful deck that you can watch the moonrise over the ocean Property manager was very helpful. Recommend using PeaPod as they will deliver. We had a great week. Make sure to visit the lighthouse in Barnegat Light. Thank you!

So close to everything!!!
The house is in the perfect location. We are steps from the ocean and the bay is just a short walk away. The ice cream parlour, which we got a gift certificate as a welcoming package, was just a quick walk away, along with the Plantation, Harvey Cedars Shellfish and Black Eyed Susan's. There is also Neptune Market and 1690 Market were great for lunch and breakfast. The house had everything we needed. Loved being on the ground floor for the kids to come and go. Only needed AC for a couple days, enjoyed cool ocean breezes for most of the week. Loved lounging in the Adirondack chairs after sun filled days of surf and sand.
Our LBI vacation this year was awesome! We stayed the 4th of July week and there were little to no crowds. We have been to LBI many times and loved Harvey Cedars and this house. The house is quaint and charming. It has all you would need for a great family vacation. The property manager was great- rental process and check-in/out was a breeze. Being so close to the beach made it easy to go back and forth for lunch or a break from the sun and sand. Weather was great. There was 10 of in all, my sister, her husband and two kids, our parents, and my family of four. My parents loved the cottage.
Thank you for your kind words. We loved having you down.
Ideal location for families. Do not have to cross boulevard to get to beach. Two blocks to ice cream parlor. Playground and bay beach are close for families with young children
