Another great week at “seafoam” and it still is the best place on LBI is you are looking for a Cape Cod/Nantucket style cottage without the Nantucket price tag . Tom is a great host and is always available to any any of your questions . This is our second year at “Seafoam” with 8 family members including a 99 year old grandmother . On a quiet street and only 3 houses to the ocean makes your stay effortless .... Can’t wait to stay there again.... Peace!!!

As the description mentions, this is a perfect historic house for a summer beach vacation on Long Beach Island. All details are correct, and the major plus points :
1) Separate House & Cottage, allowing say teens / young adults to be in their separate quarters.
2) Two Kitchens & Two Outdoor showers
3) 4th or 5th house from a really great beach, on a secluded street
4) Old world charm of a historic house.
Nothing really to complain about, we would heartily recommend it.

Thank you for you kind words. We enjoyed having you and your family stay with us.
The cottage at Seafoam has everything you need when you are away from home. Tom is just a phone call away if any problems occur. There are several outside sitting areas for children and adults to relax. The garden area in the back of the cottage was nice. Very enjoyable!

Thank you for you kind review. We were glad that your were able to make it down and enjoy some time.
We had a awesome week. The website gives a great description of the house. It was clean, comfy, and next to the beach. We basically had a private street, there was only about 6 houses and we were fourth from beach. We had everything we needed at the house--just brought the sheets and towels! Highly recommended for your stay!

My family and I returned to Sea Foam this year for another year at this cute beach cottage. We have been there numerous times over the past 15 years and we are never disappointed. We love the cozy feel of the house and all the places for people to congregate or just be on their own. One of the great things about the house is that it's on a very quiet street. We hardly saw any other neighbors and often felt like we had the street and beach access to ourselves. Our typical day this trip looked something like this:
-Get up early and enjoy coffee outside in one of the Adirondack chairs or a walk up to the bench at the top of the dunes to get a view of the ocean.
-In the late morning we drove over to the Bay Beach off 75th street to give the younger kids a chance to swim and splash in the calmer water of the Bay.
-We went back to the house around noon for lunch and a little quiet time for all - my favorite spot was the sun porch to read my book :)
-The afternoons we spent enjoying the beautiful beach! The best part is because it's so close to the house, we were able to go back and forth as needed for snacks, bathroom, etc, without it taking too much time.
-Every evening we cooked at home and ate outside at the picnic table under the upper deck.
All in all, it was a great week filled with so many memories of all the fun we had at Sea Foam! We are already looking forward to next year's adventures :)

Fantastic location! We had a wonderful stay at this charming and cozy property. Beach is only steps away, home had all needed amenities and great outdoor space as well! Very kind and responsive hosts (the best!). Everyone loved the outdoor showers! The easiest, most relaxing vacation we've had in years. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

What a gem! Hidden among the modern behemoths. This cottage feels cozy but has plenty of roomy places to congregate, as well as nooks to get lost in a good book. Big, open kitchen is perfect for cooks, and the giant table welcomes a feast! Hard to believe that the place is nearly 100 years old, as it is incredibly well-cared. Great location so close to the beach!

My siblings and I have been going to LBI for 40 years. After decades in the same house and location, we were looking to start a new tradition after our fathers passing.
The house and cabin were as charming as can be. Although the pictures can make the space look small, it is much more open and roomy than expected. We were very pleased with the living room and porch space. And even the living space in the cabin was comfy.
We had a larger group but everyone was able to find their place, with lots of little outdoor space as well.
The location to the beach is spectacular. It is a one min, walk till you feet hit the sand. The beach is always beautiful in LBI and of course did not disappoint.
It was a big change for my family but everyone enjoyed this charming historic gem.
We would definitely love to return next year.

Whether it's biking, jogging, paddle boarding, kayaking, boogie boarding, sailing, tennis, or a quiet spot for R&R, this cottage in the Harvey Cedars section of LBI provides quick & easy access to all my favorite activities. You have a comfortable, clean, quiet home, that's seconds from the beach, minutes from bay, and at a great price point! Thanks for the memories :)

I grew up going to the NJ shore. After moving to another state as an adult, I wanted my family to experience my favorite memories growing up. I found this beach house and immediately fell in love. The house is very roomy and can accommodate a big group. There are areas to sit, read or play a game. Taking a nap in the sun-room, is a favorite with many of my family members. There is a two story apartment at the back of the property, which makes for a nice vacation with extended family. The beautiful Harvey Cedars beach is just at the end of the street, and over the dune. It's great to be able to walk back to the house for a quick lunch or snack or a bathroom break. The beach is private and requires a daily/seasonal pass, and there are Life Guards on duty daily.
The island itself, has a Lighthouse you can climb, beautiful dunes to hike, lovely shops and restaurants and plenty of opportunities to go biking.
This beach house, is located at the Northern end of the island . A short drive down to the southern end offers miniature golf, a watermark, amusement park and lots of kid friendly activities, I can't say enough about this wonderful house, my family has enjoyed vacationing here and making our own wonderful memories at the Jersey shore.
