Late Fall renting

Overall was a very positive experience. The pictures of the dinning room area didn't include the two refrigerators and cart that made the area somewhat tight to get around the table. Ample bedrooms that were furnished to meet our needs. With the cleaning depending on the renters we felt we needed to clean when we moved in and when we left. Realizing that we rented at the end of the season it appears a good deep cleaning is needed. - Experienced VBO travelier stayed October 2013

Our PERFECT home away from home!

This beautiful beachfront home could not have been more perfect! Everything we needed was there and in near new condition. We especially loved the large communal living area and the kitchen that had every utensil and pot you could ever need. (We love to cook!) This property was true to the photographs and the amenities, very clean and very well maintained. The owner was personable and made himself available to us, personally inviting us back the next year and asking us if we had any recommendations to make this already fabulous house even more accommodating! We have already booked for next year and are looking forward to many, many returns!! - AK stayed in September 2013

Surf City Paradise!

We have rented many homes over the years on Long Beach Island. I have to say this home was without a doubt the best! Even if you didn't feel like going to the beach it didn't matter, just go relax on the deck or take a nap in one of the oceanfront bedrooms. Listen to the ocean as you drift off. Who needs TV when you can watch the kite surfers put on a show. We were pleasantly surprised by the well stocked kitchen and the market is "really" just down the street. The location is perfect...not too far from Old Barney and not to far from Beach Haven. My husband is a golfer and the easy on and off the island made it nice to play a round of golf or go to the driving range. The large dining table is also a plus, we like to do puzzles at the beach and this table is perfect for that. We had a family get together while there and everyone loved the place, especially because you can practically see the ocean from anywhere in the house. Looking forward to a return trip in 2014, with a new grandchild! - Beth F.from NJ stayed Aug/Sept 2013

Great House on beach

This house is GREAT. It is just a nice as pictured and the owner has been a pleasure to work with. Plenty of room, nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen had anything and everything a cook could want. The 2 decks are nice for some additional privacy and the location right on the beach could not have been better. We look forward to renting this house again. There is a great little market right up the block for groceries and fresh fruits and vegetables. - Bonnie from New York State stayed in August 2013

Great vacation

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beach front home. The owner keeps everything up-to-date and modern. The rooms were larger than we expected. We easily fit four families, which included 7 adults and 5 children. The private walkway to the beach was very convenient and the view from the house is beautiful. A bonus was that the owner has anything we could need at the beach (e.g., beach toys, chairs, boogie boards). The owner also made himself accessible in case any issue came up. None did for us. It is also a great location in Surf City in walking distance to many stores and activities. We could not have been more please during a very relaxing vacation. - Tracey from New Jersey Stayed August 2013

Even better than expected!

My extended family and I stayed this past week at this property. We had a wonderful vacation. The house was actually more spacious than I thought it would be. We spent most of our time on the top floor in the shared living space. Waking up to the view and sound of the ocean is what we wanted and what we got! There was plenty of parking, the kitchen was packed with everything needed, the laundry room was used non stop (kids & adults!). If I had a wish list, the only improvements that would have made our stay better would be a bathroom on the bottom floor, and more shade on the top deck - umbrellas or a cabana/awning. The owner and realtor are friendly and totally responsive. I would definitely recommend this property. - NJ renter stayed August 2013

time at the beach

Many things on a vacation are not in ones control, i.e. the weather, the water, the beach, however if you wish to have accommodations that you need not worry about whatsoever, stay here. We have enjoyed the house often enough to refer to it as home while we are on vacation. From ease of access to the beach, from convenience on and off Island and to amenities on the Island, how nice is it to have the Bay City Market at the end of the block, from the bottom floor, with refreshing outdoor shower, to the bedroom floor, each appointed with every need, to the living area, with well equipped kitchen and great family room, to a deck overlooking paradise, all are first class in my opinion. From the first day of our stay I feel stress remove itself like the tide going out to sea. Our week long stay is the best week of my year, In fact the worst day of the year is the day we leave, but knowing we are coming back makes leaving palatable. Can't wait till next year, thanks again. - Nic stayed July 2013

From Philly with love

Today marks the end of our family’s first stay at this house, and it goes without saying that we were very pleased with everything about it – the layout, the location, the condition, and all of the handy amenities (baby high chairs, beach chairs, sand toys, etc.). We slept and lived comfortably with eight adults and four children and never felt space-constrained. The short walk to/from the beach was perfect given the young children needing naps and feedings all at varied times throughout the day. We also loved taking the kids to the bay beach, just a short drive to the house, where there’s a playground and shallow swimming area perfect for small children. Having the option to cool the house with either the AC or a cross breeze from the ocean was perfect. The reverse layout – kitchen, great room and deck on the top floor – makes great sense for a beach house where you want the best view to be where you’re spending the most time, not for the bedrooms. You never felt the presence of the neighboring houses, which gave a nice private feel. We never went out for dinner but rather cooked in every night – the large kitchen, grill, and dining areas (indoor and out) made this very comfortable. Most of us made use of the outside shower - a great feature! One other thing - though this house is not handicap accessible, it was perfect for one family member with difficulty walking because once he arrived on the top floor, he could stay for the day enjoying the sight of his family at the beach from either the porch or even from the couch inside. Two things for our wish list for this house (knowing both may be quite difficult to achieve): a toilet on the ground level, and a stair connection from the front deck to the beach walkway! - Growing family from Philly PA stayed July 2013

great house great location

We just returned from our week long stay at the house. Our goal was to start of the summer with a nice relaxing week and this house was perfect for that. The location was perfect as the house is right on the beach. Each morning we had coffee out on the third floor deck overlooking the surf and enjoyed the easy access to the beach as well. We spent the majority of our time on the beach but when we ventured into town there were plenty of places to eat and shop.There were also places to rent kayaks, jet skis and paddle boards nearby as well. The house has plenty of space and each room is well thought out. Even though we were are party of two, it was clear to me the house would be ideal for a family rental as there are plenty of beds and bathrooms to accommodate larger groups. There is also a nice fully equipped kitchen and an outside grill as well. We were sad to leave as the week went by too fast. We already booked the same week for next year with the owner who was very helpful. If you are looking for a nice relaxing experience right on the ocean this house is a great choice. - KM stayed May 2013
