The house has been in our family since it was built in 1955. It first belonged to our grandparents, then our Mom and Dad. Dad passed away in July 2012, and Sandy hit in October. Now, brother and sister, Rick and Linda own the house we loved spending summers at.
Owner purchased this House in 1955
Why Owner chose Beach Haven
Outside of people letting steam off, this is a quiet residential area. Since Sandy, some ownership has changed, but there are still plenty of people that have lived on the street for decades.
What makes this House unique
West Avenue is just down the street - great for biking, inline skating, and walking. There are playgrounds both north and south of the house, about 8-10 blocks.

Although outdated, the house is large with a nice layout. Do not expect to have water pressure in the upstairs bathroom though. What you can expect is to pay extra for the linens and for a cleaning fee. The linens will be stained and do not include towels or bath mats. You will be given a choice to pay a cleaning fee, but, if you can not commit to make the house clean enough for the next renters, then just anticipate to pay the large fee. The stay itself was pleasant and it is in a nice location, but the interaction with the owner has led me to the rating of only 2 stars.
The water pressure has been improved! In October 2017 we replaced the 50YO 3/4" water service with a new 1" service, which according to my plumber says that doubles the amount of water to the house - I'm not so sure! Of course, you still can't use all three showers while running the dishwasher, washing machine and flushing the toilets and expect great pressure.
What we expect while staying at our house is that if you say you'll leave the house as clean as you find it, that you will. We charge for cleaning because some people prefer to save the costs and do it themselves. When I used to rent on the Island, I didn't want to clean after a week's relaxation, but my realtor didn't offer a cleaning service and I spent plenty of time making sure the rental was in tip top shape. Be assured - we always clean the house between guests to make sure it is spotless. It takes 2 people 3 hours each to clean, which is why there is a 4 hour lag between guests leaving and arriving. As for the bed and bath linens, we haven't had complaints before, but now we will no longer be offering to provide linens. If you're interested in renting linens, rentals can be found online.
The house as in a perfect location with easy access to the beach and the bay.
Great layout for several families and Linda was great at communicating with us. We can't wait to come back again next season!
a real find.
clean, airy, spacious, convenient to beach and bay, comfortable furniture, wonderful sea breezes contribute to relaxing stay,
Very clean and spacious, perfect location.
Affordable and lot of space!
We had a fantastic week and the house is really an ideal setup for large families. We were 3 couples, and 4 kids (6, 5, 3, and 3). The kitchen is huge and plenty of room at the table for all of us to eat together, and room for cooking and prep without being on top of each other. The 2 living areas were great for the kids and adults to spread out and the number of bedrooms can't be beat for the price. Really a great house, our favorite so far, and Linda the owner was very nice to deal with...will most likely rent again next year. The Burrells/O'Neals
Home away from Home
This is our third year staying here and we would stay nowhere else.
It's just perfect for our whole family.
Plenty of room to relax and have a big family dinner.
Close to the beach, close to downtown amusements and great ice cream.
The beaches aren't crowded and are very clean.
We hope to see you next year!
