Some of our guests with multiple generations take both floors and have 6 bedrooms available to them. There are also a minimal number of stairs for the first floor, which makes it easy for little ones and those with a problem with stairs. Extended families and good friends have done this for and even bigger beach experience.
Oceanfront is what defines the experience. Listen to the sounds of the surf. Have coffee on the porch with the sunrise and cocktails at dinner. Enjoy a lobster dinner on the deck. Read a book, or share the moment with a friend or family member. Paint shells with the kids. Bike to town or take a boat ride at sunset. This is the best of the Jersey Shore and we would love to have you experience it at Merivale Pack your vacation with summer memories. If you love the beach, you will experience it here. It is a nature-lovers paradise.
We have many returning guests who bring their young children each year. The overall atmosphere of the street is residential. There is easy access by auto or bike to the town. Many of our guests order their food to be delivered on the day of their arrival to avoid crowded stores. The island does have a lovely new Acme. We do try to accommodate our guests with beach chairs and beach toys. We also provide a porta-crib. At the corner is a bike rental store. It also rents most of what you would want for your stay.
Last year was a banner year for rentals starting in May and going through October. Many of our guests prefer the cheaper rates and quieter island on the offseason. The high season is exciting with all of the activities and the peak whether. It is always a good idea to book early and avoid any disappointments with availability. From the 4th of July to Labor Day usually books first and is considered high season. We always look forward to welcoming new friends and welcoming back our old guests. We hope to hear from you and see you in 2020, for another banner year at the Jersey Shore and on the island. Because of high demand in the high season it is recommended that you book early. We have many returning guests and look forward to seeing them each year. The shore is calling you. It's time to go down to the sea again. Merivale beach is one of the nicest beaches on the island. The guards are just a few yards away to each side. The shoulder season allows for some weekend rentals at reduced rates. Property manager Bonnie T. Marino is available to answer any of your questions. 609-369-1214. She can be texted with questions and updates as well.

I am writing this review as I write a deposit check for Merivale Lane for a week in September 2020. I have been back every year with the exception of one (due to circumstances beyond my control) and plan to come back every year if able. Not only is the house located right on the beach, but Bonnie is such a pleasure to work with and is always at the ready if you need anything at all. The open concept is great for cooking, while having a cocktail and a panoramic view of the ocean. The deck on the second level is wonderful for cocktail hour or watching the sunset and the long walks on the beach are just steps away! It is always a girl's only week at the shore and my girlfriends so enjoy getting away from work, family and responsibilities to come down and live the LBI life for a few days and the same group comes every year! The house is convenient, yet away from the hustle and bustle where one can truly enjoy and relax. Everything is well maintained, fully stocked and in excellent working order. I second one of the other reviews, this is a great way to spend a week on LBI, just don't take my week!!!!

Very nice property with a panoramic view of the ocean from this second floor location. Kitchen is very modern, even with usb charging outlets under the main kitchen table. Closet space is rather sparse, but overall a very nice space. Unit is beachfront and path to beach is adjacent. Quiet neighborhood is nice for walking. Ownerd have put a lot of care into the property and it shows. A/C units in every room make for lots of comfort in hot weather. Good shower. Highly recommended.

We were pleasantly surprised by the proximity to the beach this rental was. We were also impressed with the decor and cleanliness of the home. It was a perfect week at the beach! We mostly enjoyed taking walks in the early morning with our daughter to explore Beach Haven. Thank you for a great week!

Had a great week at LBI. The home was everything we hoped for. Bright open, living/kitchen area. Kitchen beautifully updated. Comfortable beds with great AC throughout. Best part---sitting on the covered porch on a rocking chair with my feet on the railing overlooking the dunes having a beer. Bonnie could not have been more attentive to us. We will be returning. Highly reccommend this rental home.

Loved the quieter location yet only a 15 minute walk to bustling part of town. Place was clean and plenty of space for our family to enjoy the week. Will definitely consider this rental again!

My family and I have been coming to LBI for almost 30 years and have rented houses in many of the towns on the Island. This house is the best place we have stayed in. It is modern, clean, and sits "on the beach". I can sit on the deck and watch the ocean, or sit in the living room and see it from the comfort of the couch. Beds are very comfortable, appliances are new, and the washer and drier come in very handy. I have been dealing with Bonnie (landlord) for years and she and her father are very pleasant. I always look forward to getting to LBI a little early and having a conversation with Judge Todd. This house has been perfect for us. We're so glad we found it and plan to be here every year. I've also been here in the "off season" of late September and October. It's a great place to relax when the Island is less crowded. The restaurants are still open and the weather is still summer. If you're looking for a perfect place "on the beach", don't let this one get away. Just don't sign up for my week!

Our vacation was perfect! We brought our 2 kids and stayed in the downstairs unit AGAIN!!! They loved the corner beds and kept their clothes in their own drawers. The listing and pictures are very precise in regards to the layout and amenities. The second bathroom and outdoor showers are immeasurable! We were as close to the beach as one could get! There's an ice cream shop with a mini convenience store a block away where we rented a beach umbrella for the week. It's only a short mile to the heart of beach haven. Everything was clean when we arrived and Bonnie was only a text away if you needed anything! The kitchen is stocked with anything you need to cook! Always a pleasure to come back here, knowing that we can expect cleanliness and superb accommodations.
Ps, we brought firewood this time and had a fantastic evening by the fire pit with the kids playing in the sand!

This is was our second year. Can't beat the location, right on the beach. My 2 grandchildren ages 3 and 6 can go right off the deck and are able to play in the sand. The property is well cared for, very clean and nicely furnished, perfect for a beach vacation! I would highly recommend this home. Looking forward to our next visit.

This property was amazing! From how clean it was to the location of the beach and entertainment of the island. Bonnie and her family are super helpful and respond very quickly to any questions. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
