Great vacation!

5 of 5
I was searching for a vacation home on LBI for quite awhile on my computer & by going down to LBI & meeting with realtors. One of my searches put me onto VRBO where I found the above mentioned home. What luck. My daughter, 10 month old grandson and I went for a week in August. It was fabulous. The house is lovely, clean & well maintained. What you see in the listing is exactly what you get & the owners were a pleasure to work with. The location is great. We could walk to the market, restaurants & basically for anything we needed. Being so close to the beach was a big plus because with the baby we were back & forth. The beach in Surf City was also great. If I return to LBI for vacation in the upcoming year I am looking forward to renting at this location again.
