NEW IN 2017: a bathroom, coffee, and a view! Main bath was looking a little ragged so we replaced & painted everything. We added a Keurig, too (in the kitchen, not the bathroom :-) for the single-serve cup fans. Finally, folks on the next block elevated and moved their house a bit, so we now have a nicer view of the bay from our back porch!

Long Beach Island is a beautiful, family-oriented, vacation spot. Several towns dot the slender, eighteen-mile long barrier island. Our house is in Beach Haven Crest, three miles south of the causeway bridge entrance to LBI.

The house is a very attractive and recently renovated, four-bedroom, single-family home. It is 2 1/2 blocks from the beach and one block from the bay. The home has an open and airy Living Room and Dining Room, a large and fully-equipped Kitchen, all modern appliances, and new furnishings. It also has central air conditioning, a washer, dryer, two cable TVs (including a 42' plasma HDTV), ROKU, DVR, DVD/Stereo, several ceiling fans, high-speed internet access and wireless LAN, with many extras. Guests can also use our seasonal beach badges instead of buying their own.

The four bedrooms (Queen, Queen, two Twins, and two Twins/trundle bed) sleep eight, and there are two full baths plus an outside shower. The master bedroom has a master bath and small TV; the main TV is in the living room. Bedspreads, blankets and pillows are provided but you have to bring sheets and towels. The backyard has a gas grill and patio furniture, and there is plenty of off-street parking.

Our house is walking distance to several restaurants, pizza, liquor store, and ice cream. The township bay beach, summer concerts (and something called "pickle ball") are eight blocks north. The island’s only large supermarket is a half mile south; amusement park and arcades for young kids are another two miles beyond that.

We can accommodate families and/or adult groups (age ~25 and up). We accept part-week and weekend rentals in Spring and Fall, but require weekly minimums late June until Labor Day. Our home is pet-free, and please no smoking inside the house. If you have any questions about LBI in general, let us know ( and we'll be happy to help.

We were lucky enough to find this beach house 2 weeks before our vacation. The owners were wonderful to work with us on such short notice. The house was very comfortable for our family and my sister. The layout is perfect for one or two small families. We really enjoyed spending most of our time on the back deck area when not at the beach.

The walk to the beach was fairly simple for our 3 kids ages 9, 12, and 14. But might be a bit cumbersome if you have toddlers. The quiet street was AWESOME for the kids to play on.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could ever need. I would recommend this house as a great rental with the owners being wonderful to work with.

About The Owner

We live in central New Jersey, about two hours from LBI. My wife works in insurance underwriting support, and I am the Director of Youth Programs at our church. I enjoy downhill skiing, playing ice hockey, a late afternoon beverage on the beach, and talking to our repeat and perspective guests at LBI. I also like talking to someone who is visiting for the first time and telling them about things to do and see on LBI.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Beach Haven Crest

We have been coming to LBI for over 30 years, and there are many wonderful locations up and down the island. We like our spot because it's pretty close to a lot of activities but our local streets are quiet with no through traffic.

What makes this house unique

We keep our home looking pretty new, and provide modern amenities for our guests' enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob, thank you for allowing us to stay in your LBI beach house. Your house has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and my sisters and I were very comfortable. Also the tips of what to do were very helpful. Trips to the bay for sunset with the kayak were perfect. Thanks again -- Marilyn and family.
