  • Fall Visit

    "After vacationing every summer on LBI for the past two decades, our family decided to spend a long weekend in November. We lucked-out with both the home we rented and the weather. Our rental was oceanfront, having a tremendous view of the beach from an oversized rear deck. The house was perfect for our get-a-way; huge kitchen table where we could play board games at night and share family meals. The Island was more active than I expected, with many shops and restaurants open, and was certainly a lot easier to get around without all the traffic. If you are looking for a quick escape, we definitely recommend this house - I'm sure its great any time of year."

  • Quiet rental with easy access to both beach and shops

    "What a wonderful find! Situated at the very southern tip of LBI, this home is in a quiet neighborhood off the main drag with very easy access to both beach and shops. While only narrow views of the ocean are available to the east and south, the roar of the ocean waves reaches not only the deck but even the great room if the sliding doors are open. The house is very very comfortable for 8 people. There are sleeping accommodations for two more if you don't mind a little lack of privacy. (Note to owner: Handing out the key to the shower-side door instead might make that area feel more like its own room.) The house is very clean with efficient use of space. The kitchen-dining-living great room has cathedral ceilings and two 8ft sliding glass doors which make it feel huge. The wrap-around deck is generously sized for both lounging and dining. Since it primarily faces south, it gets tons of lovely sun. As of this writing, almost every appliance in the house is either new or nearly-new. The central A/C works wonderfully well. The outside shower is remarkably airy, clean, and only a short step from the side door, a welcome surprise! The ping-pong and pool tables are in good condition and have already provided my children hours of fun. The beach has been rebuilt (dredged?) and there is a now a mountainous sand berm between the old dunes and the water. This new dune has no restrictions preventing people from climbing, playing, sliding, sunning, etc. However, it does mean you have to walk up the switch-back ramps or (what we did) simply walk around the south end of the berm. At the highest of high tides, your chairs may get pushed up onto the edge of the sand mountain, but at low tide the beach is generously sized. The ocean floor drops off extremely gradually throughout the entire tidal cycle (a rarity on LBI) which makes the surf just right for both Mom(safe) and Dad(fun) at all times. To top if off, the owner has been very friendly and extremely prompt in all communications. I highly recommend this rental."

  • Perfect beach rental!

    "We rented this house for two weeks this summer. It's directly across the street from the beach, which was amazing when you wanted to run home for lunch. I loved both the front and back decks, we spent a lot of time out on the front deck. Additionally, another perk was having the space under the house to go hang out, it was perfect for the rainy evening we had, and the kids played under there a lot. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and the gas grill on the deck was great. The property owner responded very quickly to our questions and was very easy to work with. We have rented several properties in Holgate and the location of this property is what makes it one of the best, you can't beat the proximity to the beach for the price. We will definitely be renting this house again."
