Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a Great Vacation at Lisa and Joe's Beach Rental....They are both wonderful and very accommodating.. We loved the dining room that seats 8, not to mention the 4 seats at the breakfast bar, and the patio table on their spacious deck with more... seating for 8.......The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need for vacation. Bedrooms are spacious and we especially loved the 2 full bathrooms, one of which is in the master bedroom... The Garage amenities were a big plus including bikes, beach chairs, beach carts, beach umbrellas... etc... I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who wants to have a relaxing and great vacation...........Gloria and Leon

This house has everything!! It was more than we imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly special - an amazing find! It is bright, clean, comfortable and organized. We opened the door to an inviting family room with cozy furniture including a current Sandpaper on the cocktail table. It’s obvious Joe and Lisa take great pride in their home and care about their guests. They keep communication, if needed, easy. The living space is open and the kitchen has everything you need. The bedrooms are bigger than expected from the pictures and fresh sheets are on all the perfectly-made, comfortable beds when you arrive. The bathrooms are immaculate. There are hooks on the back of every door, a liner in every waste basket and an empty laundry basket in each closet with plastic hangers provided. Everything feels new! The tv was perfect; we enjoyed Netflix. The air conditioning controls in each room keeps everyone cool. The outside shower is inviting and convenient and we never ran out of hot water. We enjoyed all the nice cruiser bikes and had plenty of beach chairs. Our vacation was excellent and we hope to extend our stay here next season. Thank you for allowing our family to rent this lovely home.

Extremely clean and well organized home!

  • 5 of 5

Owner provided bikes, sand toys, beach carts, beach umbrellas, crab traps, etc. So well organized and clean!!

The home was also well organized with everything we needed for a beach vacation. Updated and clean!! Roomy with plenty of space for adults to sit both inside and outside. Also, lots of room for the children to play. Love the child proof locks on the steps making the deck a safe place for toddlers.

We would definitely rent here again!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weeklong stay in Long Beach Island. The house is close to the beautiful (not too crowded) beach and cute town. It was incredibly well stocked! A garage full of beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, wagons, etc made our trips to the beach very easy and comfortable. The kitchen had plenty to work with as well. Big front porch, nice backyard, good sized living area, very clean. It was a great stay and we were very happy.

Lovely Vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation was perfect and the accommodations we great. The location was perfect, not far from the causeway and quiet, on a bay side dead end street. The house was very clean and comfortable, and the beach supplies and bikes were a big bonus. The front deck was beautiful but very hot during the day. It would be great with an awning and would allow you to utilize the space during the day and evening hours. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return again.

Relaxin Time

  • 4 of 5

Lisa and Joe's house was very nice. The family area, kitchen and kitchen table were great as well as the deck area. Bedrooms were nice size for a shore house. Being able to use the bikes and lawn chairs was wonderful. The only complaint we have was from my daughters who slept in the room with the twin beds. They did say the mattresses were not that comfortable.
