We had the best week staying here. The house is sparkling clean, kitchen has absolutely everything you could need, tons of outdoor seating (on the roof deck and back yard), beach passes, chairs, cart, toys, etc The owners, Danny and Diana, were amazing as well...so accommodating, available and willing to help to make our stay seamless. The house is on the small side but doesn't feel that way with the layout (the upstairs room was perfect for kids - TV, bean bags, etc) and all of the outdoor options. 100% recommend this house!

I wanted to write this review to help future renters from OVER packing during COVID-19. DO bring your own pillows, sheets and blankets = COVID -19 safe measures.
The location is MINT- blocks from EVERYTHING! (As of 6/20/2020, MANY biz are OPEN within walking distance- Surf Taco, BagelEddies, Ship Bottom Shellfish, 3-4 liquor stores, etc.).
Enter on the island and you are blocks to house! The house is EXACTLY as described and pictured - 2 bedrooms with full beds & closets. 2nd bedroom has a twin bed above full and TV with DVD player. One bathroom with shower. Downstairs has outside shower that is super convenient when returning from ocean beach that is a block away.
Upstairs dormer has plenty of “fun” room for older children to play video games on TV, 2 bean bag chairs and a separate A/C unit.
The new fenced yard (attached to house) is HUGE and offers plenty of space to BBQ on a newer Weber grill, sit at a large table that easily seats 8 and a HUGE umbrella that covers it all! There are also 4 lounge chairs and 2 anti-gravity lounge chairs for additional sunning!
Kitchen is FULLY stocked-many types of deep pots and sauté pans, large serving bowls & dishes, MANY utensils, extras like “sun tea” pitcher, medium-sized cooler, insulated pitcher, blender, Keurig coffee maker, 4 slice toaster, FULL knife set...I overpacked. This shore house has it ALL!
For the beach, you have at least 6 beach chairs to choose from, 2 beach umbrellas and 2 beach carts to carry it all.
Danny is quick to respond to ANY inquiry you might have and we will DEFINITELY be renting this wonderful spot again! Worth EVERY PENNY!!

First I want to start off with saying Danny is by far the easiest rental we’ve have ever dealt with, always answered my questions with a quick and timely matter. The house is cleaned and my boys had a fabulous time. Having the roof deck was great. We highly recommend renting this house!!!!

Danny and Diana throught of everything. Couldn't be cozier, cuter, cleaner, or more comfortable. My 7 year old twins especially loved the bunk beds! Perfect!!!
Stayed June, 2014
House was very clean, close to the beach, stores, and restaraunts. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain, but still enjoyed our week. Loved the grill and used it several times. Fresh seafood was available at several stores close by.
Danny was fantastic. Very responsive and helpful to all my questions.

Thank you for the great review! Unfortunately, we can't control the weather, but we make up for it with amenities. No one wants bad weather during their vacation. But when it hits we are prepared to help you make the best of it. There is a full complement of prime entertainment, barbecue, games and so much more. Still want to be outside? Mix yourself a cocktail and pull up a chair under the beach house. Kick back and watch the weather pass by. Not enough? Location, location, location. Grab an umbrella and visit any number of stores or restaurants all within a few minutes walk. There's never a shortage of stuff to do. Thank you again for the great review and kind words. You are welcome back any time!

Had a great family vacation over LDW. House was cute, clean and in a convenient location. Plenty of walkable bars and restaurants. Beach on 19th Street is also super long and spacious so plenty of spots to go set up shop. We also loved eating on the patio near the grill to get some shade on the hot days. Thanks again!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Lisa! We can't say it enough; this part of Ship Bottom is the best place to be on Long Beach Island. You really are walking distance to anything and everything. Now that the beach house is raised you can enjoy the shade underneath. It's great for dining or just to kick back and relax. You can still enjoy lunch in full sun or a sunset dinner out on the spacious roof deck whenever you like. Thanks again. You and your family are welcome back anytime.
Danny & Diana
nice place , clean , close to beach and Joe Pops , caught lots of fish off the surf , be back down next season for more fishing and R and R
Stayed August, 2018
Thank you for the great review, Thomas. It's definitely not a secret that fishing at the end of 19th is some of the best on the Island due to the natural structure that may be off-shore there. It's very well known among the locals and an inquiry in any of the bait and tackle stores on the island will confirm. We've never heard a complaint about fishing there and we've caught our fair share too. Crabbing on the bay side is just as good. You'll do best with a few crab pots but drop lines work just as well and might be a little more fun. Thanks again and you're welcome back any time!
My daughter and I spent 2 fabulous weeks here and couldn't have been happier! The house was incredibly clean and well cared for. It's very close to the beach and we were near all our favorite places, like the Shellfish House, LBI Pancake House, Raimondo's, etc. The owner Danny was a very nice, helpful man and I would recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time on LBI.

Thank you for the wonderful review! Diana and I go the extra mile for all of our guests, for every stay. We've connected with the best cleaning crew in Ocean County. They're really worth their weight in gold. That's a function most owners of beach rentals can't find and their turn-around cleaning is mediocre at best. Our cleaning crew is supported by an inspection crew that checks for cleanliness, damage, and equipment during the turn-around period of each guest. Minor repairs are made immediately and defective or worn equipment is replaced before the next guest arrives. It's a system that costs a bit more but works for us. Our guests are happier and able to concentrate on what's really important.... a relaxing vacation! Thank you again for the review. You and your daughter are welcome back any time. :)
This was a really good experience. The owner is super diligent and very responsive. We would book again with them in a minute. Our sincere thanks!

Thank you for the great review, Jaynene! Diana and I have stayed in rented beach houses on LBI since we were kids. The worst feeling was not being able to get in touch with an owner or realtor when you really need them. When we started this, we promised to always be available to guests no matter what. We give guests the means to contact us any time of day via phone, text or email. Thanks again for the review. You are welcome back any time!
