About Cesar & Lauren

Young and recently married couple. Live in NYC and spend most of our free time down here in the Beach Haven West and LBI area enjoying our recently purchased beach house.

Cesar & Lauren purchased this house in 2013

Why Cesar & Lauren chose Manahawkin

My wife grew up in this area, boating and beaching at a very young age and I have quickly grown to love it. A short drive from New York City to this special and warm place where we hope to build a family and many memories. This was our first beach house and will undoubtedly be the last beach house we will ever own as it is absolutely perfect for us.

What makes this house unique

The views are simply stunning. The sunrise views from basically anywhere in the house truly sealed the deal for us. Waking up to those views you can't help but feel relaxed as you instantly slip into vacation mode. The three (3) decks (including a fantastic rooftop deck), large backyard on the water and long and beautiful dock really make for great entertaining. We recently purchased the house and have completely revamped the decor, all new furniture and tons of modern appliances to enjoy (flat screen TVs, newly installed surround sound system and outdoor speaker system, etc.).

Wonderful stay, despite rainy days

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was less than ideal, though not at the fault of the owners. We went for a long weekend and unfortunately hit a very cloudy and rainy weekend. Fortunately, the house was great and easily made up for it. Plenty of entertainment options, beautiful views, and very spacious. Enough to comfortably accommodate three young families.

In addition, Mud City Crabhouse is just a stone's throw away and we frequented it often. By our last day, the sky's cleared up and we were able to make it to the beach on LBI which helped make up for the weekend. Finally, Atlantic City is also just a short drive away for those looking for something a little less quiet.

Great house with all the amenities and spectacular views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this house with my family and it was the perfect vacation home for us. It has 4 spacious bedrooms, three of which had water views! The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds and bedding were extremely comfortable. The living area and kitchen is perfect for entertaining with an open concept and it was also beautifully decorated. There are several outdoor decks where you can enjoy the spectacular views from any level of the house, including a rooftop deck. There is also an awesome outdoor dining table with chairs that seats 8 people where we enjoyed our home cooked meals facilitated by the outstanding kitchen and amazing brand new grill. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. We also enjoyed the flat screen TV's (4 total, including one outside on the bottom patio which also has a brand new wet bar with a working sink and ice maker) and the incredible surround sound system. The house also has a private bay beach with a lifeguard on duty just a few steps away which was perfect for the kids to run around in. The house is conveniently located on the bay near the LBI bridge. Tons of great restaurants nearby, Mud City, Old Causeway, Raimundo's and many others. The owners were wonderful to work with and extremely responsive. Overall a fantastic stay. I would definitely rent this home again.
