The Island Guest House is a lovingly restored, turn-of-the-century Inn that is beginning a new life as your weekly rental. It has 16 Bedrooms with 12 bathrooms that sleeps 36 people and a pet friendly cottage that sleeps 4. There is a large garden with a Tiki Bar for events, weddings & reunions

Located ocean side in the heart of Beach Haven, you will be steps away from the beach. Walk to shops and restaurants, mini golf, amusement park, water park, summer stock theater, ice cream parlors, fishing, jet skiing, boating or parasailing on the bay, lots of nightlife, museums, concerts in the park, and beautiful historic homes.

Our cottage, with gas fireplace, sits at the back of the courtyard overlooking the garden, and welcomes pets.

The garden courtyard is a perfect venue to hold your wedding or family reunion, or to just sip champagne with your special someone at one of our umbrella tables. Underfoot, lighted patio bricks vie with the twinkling stars. Gather or relax on our front porch full of wicker furniture and enjoy the ocean breezes. Use your laptop with a complimentary WIFI. Also complimentary are beach badges and beach chairs. Our pool is the Atlantic Ocean, just 8 houses down the street. A pavilion directly on the beach is within walking distance for your wedding ceremony if you wish, and the water park is a short walk the other direction.

During the day, feel powdery white sand between your toes and the warm sun as you work on your tan. In the evening, stroll down to see a play at the Surflight Theatre, dine at one of the many award-winning restaurants, or enjoy mini golf and a soft ice cream cone. You can watch a movie or a game in our Sea Glass Room on the huge flat screen TV. Walk to the arcade, amusement park, or mini golf, you don't need a car for anything! Hear the crashing of the surf mingling with the tinkling of the wind chime in that quiet time that is far far away from stress and drama. Let all of our special touches here at the Island Guest House and all that Beach Haven can offer bring fond memories that are uniquely yours!

Wonderful charming house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 35 had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving at Island Guest House. All the bedrooms are charming and comfortable and the little kids loved the attic suite. The Kitchen had everything we needed and more and lots of us made use of the beach bikes at the house as well. The shore is wonderful in November (but we were blessed with truly exquisite weather). Beach Haven is completely walkable and there were enough places open including uncle Will's and the absolutely charming colonial era library across the street to give us some local stimulation. The beach was gorgeous as was sunset at the bay. Could not ask for a better location. Joanne and Mark could not have been kinder or more generous. They were utterly out of our way but available for any questions. For such a big place with so many bedrooms it was also a very good value.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great site for our Family Reunion. There were several areas for small groups to gather for games, drinks, etc. Mark and Joanne were great to work with! Location was very close to the beach and walking distance to local establishments.

Group outing

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the Island Guest house was great. The perfect place for large groups or just a getaway for two. The amenities were great and the house is well equipped with everything you need to have a wonderful beach vacation. Our host Mark and Joanne were fantastic and welcomed us with great beach charm upon our arrival.

Be back next year for sure!!!

The Island Guest House can accommodate the whole family !

  • 5 of 5

Our family and close friends from all over the US converged on Long Beach Island to celebrate 5 special graduations including my daughter's graduation from Medical School. We arrived from PA, CT, NY, CO, CA, MD and NJ to find a beautifully decorated bed and breakfast with top notch accommodations. The weather was perfect so we were able to take full advantage of the outdoor patio with ample tables and chairs as well as individual table umbrellas to shade the individuals who preferred to stay out of the sun. A barbecue grill was also available for our use along with 8 island bikes to explore the local island. A short 1 block walk up to Main Street put us in the middle of a delightful island tourist's treasure of gift shops, farmer's market, amusement park and arcade . . . most of our arrival cars remained untouched during our entire stay ! The sunsets were phenomenal and the beach areas were an easy 2 block walk to access. The Island house also provided a full supply of beach chairs (but bring your own beach towel!) to make your day at the beach comfortable for all. Modern kitchen appliances along with a large washer and dryer made this vacation spot a traveler's delight. I am already scheming about future weddings and reunions that would be perfect to host at this great facility ! Whether you are looking for a single room with private bath or a location to host a party of 40, I hope you will give this quaint location due consideration . . . you won't regret it !!!

Island Guest House - a grand success!

  • 5 of 5

My family had 5 major graduations to celebrate and we wanted to do it as a single gathering. We were lucky enough to rent the entire Island Guest House for a long Memorial Weekend and could not have been more pleased with the outcome. We had 34 persons staying over the 4 day period and each of them was comfortably accomodated in a quaintly decorated and fully equipped island environment with multiple access routes to the 3 stories of rooms, a courtyard that basked in the daily sun and also provided individual table umbrellas to suit a variety of sun/shade needs, island bikes, beach chairs, a patio barbecue, etc. The amenities were top notch and delighted all of the family members. We gathered here from PA, MD, MA, CA, and NY to join our local NJ relatives and create wonderful memories that will last us a lifetime!
