Why Chris and Maria chose Long Beach Island

Our main priority when traveling with our family has been convenience and safety while at the same time offering something fun for the different ages of the children in our family. LBI has it All. The Beach is for Everyone!.. all other amenities are catered for specific likes, such as bicycling, fishing, water sports, amusements parks, etc.

For the older and of age adolescents, the night life is their to be enjoyed safely...All within a few miles of each other.. and that's Convenience!

What makes this house unique

Our home speaks. And the minute you walk in it says 'Welcome'. That is what made us fall in love with this Comfy Duplex.. Each apartment has its own private entrance giving it the home away from home feel with all the benefits of a Vacation getaway... Our street and neighbors, many of whom are permanent residents, set our street apart from others. Everyone is friendly and welcoming..

Cleanest house on Long Beach Island

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Maria's house is immaculate. We only had to walk past a few homes to get to the bay (the sunsets were spectacular), while the walk to the ocean was only a little bit longer. I would not have wanted to be any closer to the ocean, because the house is far enough away from Long Beach Boulevard that it is very peaceful and quiet. We had everything we needed for a wonderful week, but Maria and Chris still contacted us to make sure everything was going well. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning and ceiling fan kept everything cool. The kitchen is clean and well equipped.

Chris and maria's beach house was perfect, perfect, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just steps away from the bay beach park and from the ocean, this place was truly perfect for our family vacation. The pictures are very accurate – the place looks great and suited our needs well. We were down there for three nights with our three month old daughter. The deck and the kitchen were well equipped and allowed us to enjoy a delicious dinner made from local fish and ingredients after we put her to bed in her own room. The air conditioners and blackout shades also were great. The outdoor shower was a big plus – we used it every day! Finally, Chris and Maria were so helpful and communicative. That really made going there a lot easier and more appealing. We would highly recommend this place for a group or a family looking for a lovely beach getaway.

CLEAN! Great location, close to bay and beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great location on a quiet street just a few houses from the bay where you can sit on the benches to watch the sunset or feed the ducks over your morning coffee. Plenty of parking and private space outback to hangout.

Very clean accommodations, well maintained property with cute beach decor and super cold A/C. Great kitchen, and perfect outdoor shower. Our hosts and owners (Chris and Maria) were fantastic - very prompt responses - great people! We had our 18 month old daughter with us, and Chris and Maria were kind enough to allow us to use some of the extra kids stuff stored on site (child's wagon with canopy, beach toys/buckets, etc...). If this property fits your search results, look no further -book it! Will definitely stay again in the future.

Thanks again Chris and Maria.

Everything was absolutely perfect about Chris and Maria's beach house. It was impeccably clean which is very important to me. House was beautifully decorated and anything we could possibly need was there. Beds were cozy, awesome tvs (smart tv in living room, nice back deck, outside shower was great and we always had hot water ! Very close to beach and able to sit by the bay and see beautiful sunsets just a few steps away from front of house. Definitely would come back !! Thanks for a great stay in your beautiful home !

Great location, great property, great owners

  • 5 of 5

LBI is a great family destination and the owners have made sure that their property is well maintained

The house was the perfect size for the 3 of us and could easily handle a few more people. Everything was clean, well kept, and in good shape.Miinor issues were handled quickly. It is up the block from the bay and a short walk to the beach.

The only thing I would warn future renters about is that the kitchen does not have any pots or pans. If you plan to cook inside (there is an outdoor BBQ), you have to bring your own or buy on the mainland at Walmart/Target/Bed Bath Beyond/Kohls. Otherwise, you have to rely on the microwave
