The property owner, Gail, is second to none. Anything you could ever need (with the exception of towels and sheets understandably) is taken care of. Literally right down to coffee in the cabinets, trash bags in the pantry, perfect wireless and full cable service (I could go on and on) she has it covered. Gail met us at the property and walked us through every aspect of the house. Made us feel right at home the second we arrived. She's not an investor, she has loved this home for her whole life. The stories she has to share are awesome! You can't go wrong with this home.

Easter Weekend in Manahawkin - Wonderful Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Manahawkin and Long Beach Island was wonderful! Gail is simply amazing to work with. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome and helped us find the right activities, especially considering this was the off-season. Her cottage is lovely, with all the amenities that our family needed to enjoy our stay and decorated in a cozy beach style. The deck was the perfect spot to enjoy the view, read a good book, and visit with the neighbors. Her kitchen has every gadget and pan that any seasoned chef can create a scrumptious meal in.

We ventured to both ends of Long Beach Island, taking a little hike up the lighthouse and around the grounds in search of the perfect seashells. And of course, we made a stop to all the boutiques and shops along the drive! Too bad for us that the ice cream places weren't yet open.

The short drive to Atlantic City is worth the while to take in the nostalgia of the Boardwalk (and get some salt water taffy). Breakfast at Wally's is a must, with good 'ole fashioned diner grub, endless cup of coffee, and inviting atmosphere.

Thanks to Gail (and Ruth) we had a great connect with our family and wonderful visit to LBI! Gail and her cottage are highly recommended! I'm sure that we will be visiting the NJ shorelines at Manahawkin again in the future!

WOW ! Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

When I first walked into the this Perfect Home it literally put the biggest smile on my face. I was so In Love. Absolutely Beautiful ! The décor is Nautical, Gorgeous! Every single room is perfect. Clean and spacious. I cant say enough about this house. I WANT TO BE THERE RIGHT NOW, AGAIN! When I read that the house had everything you needed {excluding sheets} it truly did. I was actually in awe. Gail has EVERYTHING you could possibly need. Every kitchen utensil you can think of, cleaning supplies, there was coffee, tea, a complete cabinet of spices, first aid kit and on and on. The view from this Huge deck is spectacular. The bed was the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. If you love crabbing or fishing or just water this is the house. We crabbed all day {and Night}, caught fish, took 1,000 pictures of this Amazing Home and Views. I am definitely Coming Back.

I want to mention that toward the end of our stay it was a little rainy. But the Cabana sitting area under the deck kept us dry. It was pretty nice sitting with our drinks and snacks.

Five Stars is NOT enough to rate this house. Thank You So Much For Everything Gail.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful 5 days in this beautiful home as we prepared for our daughter's wedding. The house had everything you would want for an amazingly comfortable stay. Everything was top-of-the-line from the appliances to the furnishings. We truly enjoyed the big open deck for entertaining our family, and when the heat was on (85 degrees in September) the furnished space underneath the house was wonderful. The outside shower was a bonus! Thank you, Gail, for creating such a beautiful space for a very special weekend!

My wife and I along with our 7 month old spent the week after Labor day at the house. Everything was top notch! The house is perfect for a small family and the location was great. We enjoyed the large outdoor deck each night after putting our little one down. The kitchen was fully stocked so we enjoyed cooking dinner at the house. Close to great restaurants, supermarket, and just a few minutes ride to the island!!!

Gail was fantastic to deal with and super responsive. She addressed everything and anything and is very familiar with the area if you need reccomendations.

Book with confidence, you won't be disappointed!!

Thanks for a great stay Gail, we'll be back!
