About the property

Renovated House in Beach Haven Gardens: 3 Bedrooms (Sleep 6) -- downstairs unit

Complete house renovation completed in Spring of 2014. New Custom Kitchen with Granite Counters, Stainless Appliances, new floors, New Bathroom, New Beds, New Furniture, decor, ETC. Free WiFi.

VERY CLEAN! We have rented 100% of summer weeks for the past 16 summers and have had excellent feedback. Please see some of the comments below.

GREAT LOCATION! Located in the Beach Haven Gardens section of Long Beach Island, our house is an oceanside house--you do not have to cross busy Long Beach Boulevard to get to beach. We are situated 12 houses from the beach. We're in a quiet neighborhood, yet convenient to everything! We're within a few blocks of Howards Restaurant, Woody's Burgers, WaWa, Meltdown Ice Cream Parlor, Marvel's Bakery, California Pizza, & Terrace Tavern and just one mile to Fantasy Island Amusement Park, Mini-Golf, Thundering Surf Water Park, & lots of great shopping.

We have 3 bedrooms to sleep six people (1Q, 4T), bathroom, full kitchen & dining area, deck with picnic table, central air, washer/dryer, dishwasher, 2 tvs/dvds, outside shower, driveway parking, 2 free beach badges (kids under 12 and seniors are free).

This is for the downstairs unit of our house.

Thank you for considering our house for your family's summer vacation in LBI.

About Adrienne Brautigan

My husband and I both grew up living in New York/New Jersey and loved visiting LBI with our families. It was dream come true to buy our beach house here in 2001. A year later, we were transferred to live in Georgia. Since then, we have been able to enjoy our beach house for a few weeks each June, and then rent it out for the remaining months of the summer. We have been so fortunate to have so many terrific families that rent our house each have been renting from us for as long as we've owned the house.

Adrienne Brautigan purchased this house in 2001

What makes this house unique

If you are one of our tenants, and take excellent care of our house, you will be given the opportunity to renew a week or more in our house before we open it to new tenants. We are fortunate to have many of our tenants come back year after year! We open our calendar to new families in early January and we're typically 90% booked within 2 weeks. If you're interested in booking for next summer, please mark your calendar to contact me in December. Thanks!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Adrienne--102 degrees on the beach--who could ask for more! We loved our stay this year, as we do every year. As our kids get older, they still want to go back there every year and so do we--it is like OUR summer home! Next year we'll have myself and two kids in college--hope we can still find some reserves to get to our favorite beach house! Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

This house is an amazing place to stay. It is clean and convienent to all. My family and grandchildren all made some amazing memories this Sept 2015. They will stay with us forever. As for the owners of this house they are very responding and extremely nice and easy to rent from .I would highly recommend this to anyone. Loved every minute and no one wanted to go home. Not even my 4 year old Grandson...

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle. It is a joy to hear our renting families are creating wonderful memories in our beach house. We work so hard to keep it clean and updated and we don't just view our house as a "rental property". We vacation here too with our children before the summer begins. So we take extra care to make sure everything is in working order and clean for our families. We are especially grateful for any feedback our guests provide, so that we can make improvements and ensure our great families return each summer! Thank you again!
