About Dinesh Karnani

I bought this bungalow looking house that I felt in love with. I fully renovated this house with all modern amenities for my family and kids to enjoy beach, lake and park. This house has bungalow character and architectural details that is very hard to find in today’s market. I spend my vacation in this beach house with my family and two small kids.

Dinesh Karnani purchased this house in 2012

Cozy, Clean and Comfortable Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. Very clean and comfortable home on a quiet street; loved the hardwood floors; 3 bedrooms and 2 bath was perfect for a family. This home was not only warm, clean and comfortable, but it was in walking distance to the beach/boardwalk and about 2 miles for area restaurants/shopping/etc. House is fully equipped -- sheets/towels/dishes/pots/pans/etc, nice beautiful kitchen with granite countertop, stain steel appliances and kitchen island for breakfast. Owners are great to work with and very accommodating. It has a nice front enclosed porch where you can enjoy cool beach breeze. It is a great place for families with small children and backyard was perfect for my kids to play while we did some BBQ. I will rent this house again and highly recommend to families.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT LOCATION and BEAUTIFUL BEACH HOME; HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beach home for a week and had a very good time. This place is very cozy, comfortable and was professionally cleaned; I was very satisfied. The place is equipped with everything clean sheets, towels, blankets. The kitchen is very organized and well equipped with new quality stainless steel appliances, porcelain dishes, high quality stainless steel / copper pots and pans; a good kitchen was very very helpful with kids. This place is brand new and owner has done a fantastic job. Spring lake beach is family beach and is just 1/2 mile walk or small bike ride. Grocery, restaurant and shopping is very conveniently located in about 2-3 mile radius. Kids had a good time at Marucci Park (one block away) and we watched baseball game on Sunday morning. This place is perfectly situated for a family vacation - beach, lake and park. If you are BBQ lover, then you will enjoy your BBQ in the backyard with privacy while kids are running around in the large backyard. I will definitely rent this place again and would highly recommend for a family vacation.

Beautiful Beach Home for Family Vacation; STRONGLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Beach Home for family vacation. The place is absolutely gorgeous, clean and was professional cleaned on our arrival. The location is perfect, quiet and has very good setting on dead-end street. Owner is very pleasant, helpful and even offered us toys for kids, very sweet. All the appliances are brand new, energy efficient and of great quality, including the central air a/c and furnace. The house has tons of kitchen utensils and I was surprised to see high-quality stainless steel / copper pots and pans. I loved to BBQ and enjoyed the BBQ and backyard every day in the evening. Our kids enjoyed drawing on the pavers and we could still watch them from the porch. The Spring Lake beach is 7-minutes walk and it is great beach for families; Owner offered two free beach badges that saved us more than $200 dollars. We also walked around lake como (one block away from house) watching swans and ducks. Our kids enjoyed counting the ducks and swan in the lake. Shoprite and Kmart is about 1-2 miles away and very conveniently located; restaurant/eating places is about 1 mile away and is a small walk. House also has washer/dryer and it was very helpful for us. I also liked the bridge about 5 by 12 feet large to see the water stream. All-in-All I was very pleased with the rental had a very good beach vacation time with my family and I admire the effort of owner to remodel this house and retaining the beauty of bungalow/cottage feeling. We strongly recommend this place!!!

GREAT PLACE, GREATE LOCATION AND RECOMMEND TO RENT

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time at this rental. We loved the location and could easily walk to the Spring Lake beach, downtown Spring Lake, and Hoffman's ice cream that was suggested by owner. The house is beautifully remodeled with perfect bungalow beach feel, has a great layout, very comfortable and has high-quality appliances. Our kids loved the covered porch and large backyard to play; they loved it. Honestly, the location is perfect and price is very reasonable. Owner is very helpful and suggested good restaurants. We loved it and I would highly recommend this property to people with families.

DO NOT RENT!

  • 1 of 5

My family and I rented this property in August, 2016. It was the most awful experience. The house was dirty, the backyard was a mess with old and rusty tables. The cushions were dirty, there was trash in a shed next to the driveway. Inside the blinds, towel rack and toilet paper racks were broken. The AC was broken 6 out of the 7 days were were there and the hot water heater broke 2 times leaving us to take cold showers. The owner made us deal with the handyman and go in the basement to fix it ourselves. So much for a relaxing vacation! The washer had mold in it and the sheets provided smelled like a wet dog. The place was so horrible we left a few days before checkout. The owner sent us a follow up email weeks later stating we broke items in the house, which was definitely not true as he wanted to collect insurance money. The only positive is the house is a short bike ride away from the beach. If you want to have a relaxing family vacation with a clean house, AC, hot water, a nice backyard THIS IS NOT THE PLACE.

Owner's Response: My house is professionally cleaned by cleaning service including all sheets and towels for every guest. House is brand new - built in 2013 and every wire, pipe, wall, window, kitchen, bathrooms, AC/Heat, Hot Water heater, stainless steel appliances, etc. is brand new. I have used high quality products in the house; AC and Heat is top-brand LENOX with 96% efficiency and A.O. Smith Hot Water Heater. I do not allow pets at the house so dog-smell is out of question. I personally spend lot of vacation time at the house with my family so I keep the house very clean. This guest rented my house in August for one week and then second week his brother rented the house. To save cleaning cost, they opted no-cleaning after 1st week and handed-over the house to his brother for second week. I received a phone call that AC is not working and I got it repaired on the same day with an emergency call and spend $300 for an emergency call. I am surprised how they are saying that AC was not working for 6 out of 7 days. Hot Water heater pilot got switched-off (maybe due to township repairs) and I gave them instructions as how to switch it ON again. In-spite of my request to put all trash in plastic bag and put the thrash bags in Garbage CAN outside with lid properly closed due to squirrels eating food, they just threw the open trash in the Garbage CAN and recycling can outside thereby creating a nightmare for me when they left the house; they didn't even keep the Garbage CANS outside for pickup during their stay accumulating garbage for more than a week. I called the guest to let him know that how much pain I had to go-through to clean-up 5 bags of garbage and his exact words were "Call it even - your AC broke during our stay and I left the trash open". In-spite of that, I refunded their security deposit. When they left the house, all bathroom - toilet paper rack and towel rack were on the floor and damaged; I had to fix them. I claimed to insurance company which is the purpose of buying property damage protection insurance; insurance company reimbursed me based on guest's acknowledgement. I will not rent my house to this guest again. I think they were looking for 7-star hotel treatment and forgot that this house is meant for people to enjoy vacation time with their family and friends at the beach.

Good price for the location, nice owner!

  • 4 of 5

The house worked well for us and our family of 5. I really have no complaints I thought that it was priced accordingly. I have stayed in nicer houses but not for the same price.
