About the Owner

My husband and I purchased this property in 1972 with the thought of vacationing rentals and possible retirement. He unfortunately has passed away but I am still carrying on the rental business. We enjoy people an pets. I like having the pleasure of meeting people and providing a comfortable, clean environment while allowing them their privacy. We have many customers who have been coming back each year for as many as 35 years.

It is a wonderful way of life and completely relaxing, a great getaway with your family and pet. I hope you will someday consider staying at our place.. Thank you , Marilyn Property has 2 - 2 family homes - The rental property is located in the rear and the front home is where we live full time. We have had over 20 years of returning guests who feel like family and we enjoy having children and pets staying at our place. Rich and I always enjoyed surf fishing, crabbing and just waking up to the sound of the Ocean. I unfortunately, lost my husband two years ago but would never think of leaving LBI. It is serene and quiet off-season and has all the atmosphere of the Jersey Shore as it was years ago.

Relaxing Getaway on LBI

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and our dog Kelly spent a long weekend at Marilyn's. It reminded me of the house I used to rent with my family when I was a kid back in the 70s. The place is in an excellent location. It's only 4 houses from the beach and a very short walk to the bay. Marilyn was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed our peaceful getaway at Marilyn's.

Post Labor Day Stay

  • 5 of 5

As advertised!

Marilyn, a most gracious and accommodating host...

Dwelling... clean, comfortable, quiet, pet-friendly, convenient beach access... did not disappoint.

Cooperative weather, less-crowded time of year... a near perfect September weekend get-away.

Enjoyable Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

This unit was a great place to stay for my weekend trip to LBI. I used the unit mainly for sleeping accommodations and it was perfect for that. There are two private rooms each with a queen size bed, along with a futon couch if you need extra sleeping room. There is no AC but were plenty of fans provided in the unit. Most importantly, the owner Marilyn was very responsive and helpful in allowing me to book my stay in short notice and answer any questions I had.

Well maintained rental

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location! This home is conveniently located four houses from the beach, as well as close to many food establishments within walking distance. The neighborhood is filled with friendly families and their dogs. My son and I have enjoyed staying at this warm and cozy home for the last three years. The sweet owner spends a great deal of time planting beautiful flowers all over the property.

Best location on LBI - Old fashioned bungalow

  • 4 of 5

The apartment on the 2nd floor was clean and comfortable with a good size kitchen, couple of small bedrooms. and decent size living room. If you're looking for luxury, and the accompanying price tag on LBI, look elsewhere. Marilyn's place is very basic and a throwback to what LBI used to be. She's a sweetheart and was helpful in orienting us and giving us tips on where to go.

Be prepared to bring your own towels, sheets, toilet paper, etc....

Pros:

1. Stellar location next to Neptune market and plenty of restaurants

2. On ocean side so no crossing the boulevard with beach gear

3. 5 blocks from Bay beach which was great with our 8 month old

4. Parking for 2 cars and common outdoor area

5. Dog friendly

Cons:

1. No air conditioning - it gets hot in the apartment during the day.

2. No dishwasher

3. Sleeps 6 but I don't think you'd want more than 4 to be comfortable

If you don't mind basic, affordable accommodations then this is your place.

If you can't live without the AC then look elsewhere.

My family and friends have vacationed here for over 25 years. Most years we rent both apartments at once. You can walk to the needed stores easily and the ocean beach without crossing a road!

This is old school style, with a casual and beachy atmosphere. Spend the day at the beech and at night your kids can go crabbing down at the 78th street dock or go to the ice cream parlor at the corner while you stay home and play cards or sit out on the deck shooting the breeze.

The owner is a sweetheart and very attentive, but will also leave you to enjoy your stay. There is NO A/C and we've never seemed to mind, she even allows well behaved pets. The North end of LBI is definitely the peaceful end. Thank you Marilyn for all the wonderful memories.

Location

From the Owner

property has 2 - Two family homes - The rental property is located in the rear and the front home is where I live full time. We have had over 35 years of returning guests who feel like family and we enjoy having children and pets staying at our place. It is a place of comfort, fairly quiet, convenient to all stores but mostly to the bay and ocean. The ocean is only 4 houses away and there are no streets to cross and very little traffic. It is a great place to bicyle, walk or just relax on the deck under the umbrella, where the picnic table seats 4 or there is also a larger picnic table in the yard downstairs We provide some beach chairs and beach toys. There are many flowers growing all over the property. The laundry room is convenient, closed in with lots of line space. The outdoor shower is also enclosed with a dressing room. The rear house has evening lighting and atmosphere. We also have qualified lifeguards on duty every day 10-5 and many stores are located within a 5 block area. There is a bay beach with shade and a basketball hoop. A lifeguard is on duty at the bay beach which is fenced in and good for children up to about 6 or 7.
