Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

The location to the beach is perfect. Easy access and just a quick walk...and I mean quick! There were two grills for cooking, lots of furniture outside for enjoying, however, the house is tired, and in desperate need of updating. Master suite is extremely large on the second level. The balance of the bedrooms are modest but the size is adequate. Bathrooms are ridiculously dated. Kitchen very small and not very well stocked. I must say that when we had a problem, the owner was very responsive. Air conditioning is problematic.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review in regards to your recent stay. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the location of the house; with only a short walk to a private beach. The style of the home is a charming traditional New Jersey style beach house, with twenty six photos covering the ins and outs of the home, so the renters have a candid view of the home before arriving. The top floor of the house is solely a master suite, including a king size bed, its own living area, a full bathroom, and a private balcony. The large size of this suite is something a lot of the renters find very relaxing and appealing; I am sorry you felt as if this suite was too big for your liking. This house is outfitted to accommodate families of all sizes, which is why we provide an array of bedrooms, I am happy to hear you were pleased with this. Our kitchen is a full kitchen including a brand new refrigerator, new dishwasher, new microwave and a 4 burner stainless steel stove. We offer a full set of plates - big and small, bowls, silverware, glasses, pots and pans, Tupperware, a traditional coffee maker, and Keurig, and even a rice cooker. The kitchen runs alongside an indoor dining space with a big table to seat a large group, in addition to the four outdoor dining spaces, equipped with an outdoor flat screen TV. We are the only rental property that offers two grills and extensive outdoor seating, in order to comfortably satisfy larger groups, which we frequently have. The amenities of the house were thought of in regards to being relaxing, enjoyable, and more importantly cost saving for our renters. LBI offers many restaurants, (pricey) entertainment rentals (such as kayaking, biking, boating, beach passes, and so on), as well as outdoor relaxing areas. I put a lot of emphasis on incorporating all of these things into my rental property, so my renters don’t have to go far or spend additional money to enjoy these things, unless wanted. The house is and has been updated each year for the past ten in years to reflect the feedback I get from my renters to make the home more enjoyable for everyone. I thank you for your review, and hope to see you again. Best, Mansour

From the Northwest (Washington, state) I've never been to the East Coast. This was the first experience and I can't wait to go back. Stayed at this wonderful home summer of 2015. Beautiful home that accompanies all the things you and you family need for your duration. The location is a prime location for easy access to both the beach and the bay. What the owners offer for recreational is great and makes your experiences at LBI even better. The patio is wonderful and very classy for outside dinners. This vacation house offers you that "vacation" feeling that we all dream of. Highly recommended for family vacations.

Wonderful family reunion week

  • 5 of 5

just returned from a memorable week at this rental in Harvey Cedars and can only say we were completely satisfied with this property. We had 8 adults and six children ages 2 through 11 and the house met our every need. Easy access to the beach with a lifeguard stand right there. We had beautiful weather the entire time and the beach was absolutely beautiful. The house was very clean and so well stocked. Loved all the beach chairs and umbrellas and the two carts to carry everything to and from the beach. The outdoor seating area with the tables and chairs, refrigerator and two grills was an added bonus and ideal setting for our extended family who were all vacationing this week on LBI. Highly recommend this rental for large families. We will be back.

Love Harvey Cedars!

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to LBI was amazing this year. It was our first time staying in Harvey Cedars and we loved it. The house was so close to the beach and the beach itself was wide, beautiful and quiet. We were 6 adults, 7 kids and the house accommodated us all well. The kids loved playing on the ping-pong table and singing karaoke :) And, the owners were incredibly nice and always available for questions. PS Try the stuffed shrimp from Harvey Cedars Shellfish Co!
