Panoramic view, clean, comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen including washer/dryer, 2 decks, outside shower, house is oceanfront. Sunrise on oceanfront deck and sunset on City side deck. What more can you ask for? My niece and I love our weeks in May and October.



LBI Ocean View

Stayed July, 2021 – Lauren T

This is the perfect LBI getaway! The owners are wonderful to work with. The house is clean, well stocked, in a great location and has a spectacular view! We look forward to our week there every summer!



Another great summer

Stayed July, 2021 – Jack Gibbons

Place was super clean. Many amenities. Great location and very nice owners. Always look forward to our next summer rental.


The Perfect LBI Vacation

Stayed June, 2021 – Maggie C.

We've been coming to LBI for years and have stayed at a variety of rental properties - Ocean View is at the top of our list. MaryEllen and Roger were wonderfully helpful and easy to reach. They have clearly put a lot of thought and consideration into making this a great rental experience. The house is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, well organized and has so many considerate details (a well provisioned kitchen, games and beach toys for the kids, TV in the main room and bedrooms, washer/dryer, coffee maker and many more). And access to the beach is extremely easy - you can see and hear the beach from the house - the view is amazing. Since we were traveling with kids, the ability to run back and forth for bathroom breaks & snacks made this a really lovely beach vacation for all. We can't wait to come back next year!


A Gem of an Ocean Front House

Stayed June, 2021 - Alina Vazquez

A gem of a house! Great location, magnificent view, tastefully decorated, and steps from the ocean!!! After renting oceanfront houses at LBI for the past 25 years, this one is our fave!!!
Looking forward to next year at Ocean View!!!



Stayed May, 2021 - Eileen

I was lucky enough to stay at this beautifully situated and appointed duplex with stupendous views in May. I was expecting great things based on the location, but the details, amenities and décor of the place blew past my expectations! From the beachy décor, airy layout and considerate details of a binder of menus, easy labeled wifi/TV codes, extra dish soap and paper goods, I really felt like I was staying in the home of my dreams. The owners were wonderful to deal with and were considerate before, during and after my stay. I needed nothing but would not have hesitated to reach out at any time as they were so responsive. The location is ideal and was a great place to work and relax – mostly relax! I look forward to a return visit.


Always a Great Week at Ocean View on LBI

Stayed May, 2021 - Bill and Linda Meier 

We have rented the second floor of Ocean View many times in the last few years and have always loved our stay there. The view from the deck is panoramic--you are getting an unobstructed view of the beach in front, up north and down south. The living room and the master bedroom have the same view. Sunrise is a treat whether sipping coffee on the deck or lying in bed! In addition to the master bathroom, the two rear bedrooms have a bathroom between them, making it very convenient for family or friends to visit. The back deck has a grouping of chairs from which you see the sunset bayside. The kitchen is well-equipped; the bedrooms, as well as the living room, have televisions; there is a garage with some beach gear and a nice parking area done with pavers. Ocean View is immaculate inside and out. The owners are very nice people who are proud of their property and dedicated to renters having a worry-free and enjoyable stay--oceanfront!.



LBI 2020 - an excellent choice

Stayed August, 2020 - Carole Papayannakos 

This is a beautiful, comfortable, peaceful home away from home. This home has everything you could possibly want. It is beautifully decorated with very comfortable couches and beds. Even though it’s a shared property I never heard the family downstairs, very quiet. The nice sized deck overlooks the beach and is perfect for sunning in the day and dinner at night. I was so glad to have the two bathrooms. It was perfect. LBI has the most beautiful beaches and crystal clear water and Ocean View has the best views of them. Every morning the most spectacular sunrises and it’s so easy to go down to the water for a swim after a bicycle ride around the neighborhood. Just loved this vacation! An excellent choice!



Perfect Week!

Stayed August, 2020 – John Cranford, NJ

Thank you to Roger and Mary-Ellen! We found this gem completely by chance after our other rental was canceled due to the COVID situation. The upper level of the duplex is beautifully decorated and comes with everything you need. Of course, who could beat sunrise over the ocean from the East deck and sunset while you’re grilling dinner or having drinks on the west deck? The homeowners made us feel comfortable about the cleaning and safety protocols they were taking and unlike other rentals didn’t charge extra for it.
From the moment I reached out to inquire about availability, I felt like my family was their guest. Including those little household extras along with enough beach chairs (and good ones!) for everyone in our group added to that overall experience. We had a wonderful week and are looking forward to next year!



Stayed August, 2020 – James C Nenni Jr 

This was our second-year vacationing at Oceanview and what a wonderful time we had. Mary-Ellen and Roger thought of everything during these covid times from disinfecting the house, changing the AC filter to wrapped bed linings with our names on them. She even text me that the house was ready early. Not too many owners would do that. Every year, we eat out for all our meals, but this year, with covid, we decided to cook in and do take out. It was nice to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on the patio overlooking the ocean. Our stay was perfect except for tropical storm Isbelle. This was our first tropical storm we experienced. The day started out cloudy. Then around 10 am the rain and wind started. By 11am the storm was in full force. Then around 11:30 we lost power. By early afternoon, the sun was out but still windy. We also took a walk on the beach. We ventured out to buy food and candles for the night but could only find box and can foods. By the next day we also lost all the food in the refrigerator leaving us wondering if we should cut our vacation short. In speaking with Mary-Ellen many times, she talked us into sticking it out and I am so glad she did. The power was restored by Wednesday afternoon and the next few days were perfect, sunny, and warm. All in all, this was another Great Vacation stay at Oceanview and we look so forward to vacationing at Oceanview next year. Mary-Ellen, the New Floors look Great! A special thanks to Mary-Ellen and Roger for thinking of everything and talking us into staying. See you next year!

Wonderful Oceanfront Home

Stayed July, 2020 - Scott

We spent a terrific week at LBI Oceanview. We stayed in the upper floor unit and had unsurpassed views of the beach and ocean. In these days of pandemic, it was great to have a home where we could eat all of our meals at the house and not venture out. The kitchen is well equipped and with that great location, you never felt like you were being denied a good meal with great atmosphere, This was particularly true when dining on the oceanfront deck. LBI Oceanview is in excellent condition with comfortable furniture and bedding. We had a wonderful time, being isolated together and will be back again. Thank you Mary-Ellen and Roger for allowing us to stay in your beautiful beach home.


Perfect get away

Stayed June, 2020 - Elsa

Great local getaway at LBI ! Perfect location, immaculate home with beautiful views. Family of 4 had a wonderful time, perfect setting, great bike riding, beach digging relaxation. Wonderful hosts, we will be back !

Fabulous Stay at Ocean View!

Stayed June, 2020 – Cathy Q.

This was our first stay at Ocean View. I was looking for a getaway early in the season with my mother. We loved every minute. The views from the living room, master bedroom and deck are stunning and the house is well equipped, including beach chairs and umbrellas. Easy on and off the beach. Super clean. I wish I could have stayed longer. We can’t wait to come back and I hope to also come back with my husband and children.


This is the perfect LBI getaway

best vacation house on lbi

Stayed August 2019 - James Nenni

Our first stay at Ocean View was the most wonderful stay we had in our 9 years vacationing on LBI. MaryEllen and Roger are the best from our first visit to look at the house last November. They were so kind and the information they provided was so helpful. I knew from that moment, our stay would be wonderful. And it was. We arrived on August 3, 2019 and the house was clean and decorated nicely. And the views were spectacular! So nice to wake up in the morning and roll over to watch the sunrise. We had friends rent the first floor. Now we have been vacationing with them for the past 9 years. We rented a house on Delaware Avenue. They were reluctant to rent this house, but after the first day, they said they would come back every year.

Love this place

Stayed July 2019 - Jack Gibbons

Beautiful view of the beach and great location. Owners couldn’t be nicer and always trying to improve their rental. Many amenities. Can’t wait to get back there next July.

awesome place

Stayed July 2019 - Clay White

I'm almost hesitant to give it too good a review, because this is our go to place on LBI, and would hate lose it if we don't pull the trigger fast enough in future years. lol. The location is great, the house is very clean, well equipped, and overall, just a great beach house!! Looking forward to next year!

Outstanding !

Stayed August 2019 - Kim T. 

Renting a beach house always felt like a leap of faith to me until we found the place that checks all the boxes.
Everything is as promised in the details. The homeowners truly care about their place and it shows. The home is well kept, neat, nicely decorated and equipped with all you could need (and then some). The view and location are perfect. My family and I shared lots of great memories here and we hope to return again next season.

love this place!

Stayed September 2019 - Ben & Diane From

Stayed Septemer 2019

Have been coming here for years and hope to continue doing do. Immaculate upon arrival with tons of amenities. Love the attention to details. Doesn't get much better right on the beach.

Great beach house!

Stayed Aug 2018 -  Nicole H.

We loved our stay! The house is in a great location-right on the beach, near restaurants, Fantasy Island, homemade donuts-everything you could want in LBI. The owners were great to work with. They had the house ready before the check-in time, had amazing instructions and a book of their favorites to help make the trip memorable. I would rent this house again. Thanks for a great vacation!

Very nice family vacation home with a perfect location.

Stayed Jul 2018 - Marilyn E.

Very nice family vacation home with a perfect location.

Convenience and all the comforts of home!

Stayed Jul 2018 - A M.

We stayed with two little ones and had a great week. The property was very comfortable and the views and constant breeze off of the ocean made our stay special. MaryEllen was lovely to deal with, very clear and responsive with all communication and proactive in making sure we had the best stay possible. You will not be disappointed spending any length of time here, can’t wait to come back next year!

Perfect location on a beautiful beach!

Stayed Jun 2018 - Lisa B.

Our family of 6 stayed for a week. The property was very well appointed and perfect for a laid back family vacation. The beach was beautiful and not overly crowded. We would definitely return.

excellent beach house !

Stayed September 8 - 15 2018 - Clay W.

Nicely decorated, well equipped, great location, and we felt very much at home!!.  Mary Ellen and Roger are great Hosts!!! Looking forward to coming back!!

wonderful, relaxing beach house

Stayed September 22 -29 2018 - Norman and Martha

Very clean, unlike others we have rented. Great ocean view, even from 1st floor deck.  Looking forward to coming back next year.

Thank you for making the house feel like a home!

Stayed July 14-21 2018 - Sue S.

Everything was wonderful! Never had a rental that provided everything we needed from trash bags to a beach cart!  Loved all the updates to the house.  Looking forward to next year.


My wife and I have been renting on LBI for more than twenty years. We always come down in the Fall because we enjoy the Fall fishing and the relaxing pace after the Summer craziness has calmed. We rented the bottom unit from 10/26/18 -11/3/18 and absolutely loved it!
Mary- Ellen and Roger were great, answered all our questions and gave us all the helpful tips we needed to have an awesome little break this year. The first thing we noticed was the house was immaculately clean and well furnished. It’s nicely decorated and feels warm and cozy. Everything about the house is modern & updated. Everything we needed was there from the washer & dryer to coffee maker to dish ware and utensils. Big fans & TVs in every room! All we needed were the linens we brought with us. Views of the beach and all around are amazing.The house is located perfectly on the Island near everything. Easy access to the beach is right there next to the house. If you need to drive on to the beach with your vehicle to fish in the off season as we do - the access road to drive on is only a couple blocks away. It really does not get any easier. Outside showers and use of the big spacious garage was a huge plus!  We loved our stay here and will definitely be returning to stay here again. Our one and only regret is that we hadn’t found this place sooner!Best rental we’ve made on the Island in over twenty years!
