"We rented in Summer of 2016 at the end of June. This was our first annual family reunion in LBI. Because we are 10 people with a limited budget our choices were limited, but we couldn't have found anything as wonderful as this for our needs. The place is spotless and nicely decorated,as if the owner only meant to use it for his family. We found the long table plus another add on table to be excellent for keeping everyone together for dinner. The smaller table was great for playing cards and games. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need. Very good for cooking. Can't take a family our size out to dinner! The living room was adequate, even for a family this big. Never had everyone in there at the same time. We had an eight month old baby with us, so to provide a soft place for her to sit, we brought a 6x4 foot throw rug with us and put it in front of the coffee table. Worked great! The two floor bedroom set up is perfect for a group having a senior couple along. My husbabnd and I never had to climb stairs if we didn't want to. The bathroom on the first floor is the main one, so we were able to get our showers down there. The outdoor shower was a great plus since we had 10 people needing to shower at the same time! The tub was great for the little ones. The bedrooms were very roomy. The older children played with their toys up there. The location of the house is wonderful. There is an Acme nearby. A water slide is not too far, that has an area for babies. Miniature golf is in the same area. Also, there are rides for the children and games and an arcade in the same area. The Dunes is a lovely little town, so peaceful and quiet. The beach is large and beautiful there. Last but not least, there is a beach shuttle service for seniors! you call them...tell them when to come....they come right to your door....plenty of room for beach chairs, umbrellas etc.....then you call them when you want to return and they will come right up to your blanket to get you. if there's room they don't mind letting you take some children along. If the family is all heading home at the same time, they will let you put as many items that will fit in the back. For this lady with bad knees, this was a life saver!!! Of course LBI has so much else to offer. Great restaurants and shops are located up and down the island. No trip would be complete without a trip to the Barneget Lighthouse. The grandchildren loved it! Well that's it. I give it 5 stars!!!"
