Families will love being close to ocean and everything LBI has to offer
About Kathy Pettus
We have been vacationing on Long Beach Island for 15 years. Our kids have grown up enjoying summers on the Beach Haven sand and this is our happy place -- together and unplugged with books and games and happy hours!
Kathy Pettus purchased this House in 2016
Why Kathy Pettus chose Beach Haven Gardens
We love being close to the ocean side. And not having to cross over the major boulevard allows easy back and forth if any family members need a break from the sun or want to enjoy some solitary time on the beach. This location of Beach Haven Gardens provides great access to all the restaurants and the benefits of not being an overcrowded part of the beach.

Perfect location. All amenities. Clean and nicely decorated.
Great location. Short drive to fantasy island, and acme. Easy walk to beach - 6 houses.
Renting was the easiest. Owner was super accommodating and responsive. House was exactly as detailed online and well kept. Kitchen was stocked with everything you could think of. We would definitely stay again!
Everything was great! The property was everything we needed. It was equipped with literally everything we needed, particularly the kitchen. Kathy was very quick to respond to a simple question. The location was perfect, the neighborhood quaint. We had a trumpet serenade us every evening at sunset while everyone cheered. We felt right at home! We would go again in a heartbeat.
Great stay in Beach Haven Gardens!
We stayed for one week beginning July 6th in the upstairs unit. The property was exactly as described on the website and in the pictures. Best part of the property is the location - only 6 houses from the beach! As the street is very residential (very few rental properties on the street), the beach was never crowded. The three bedrooms offered plenty of space for my wife and I as well as our twin 20 year-old daughters. The one bathroom worked fine, as we utilize the outdoor shower frequently. The unit was clean and up-to-date, with plenty of room for relaxation for all four of us in the den and on the deck. We were fortunate that, for most of the week, the first floor unit was unoccupied - so use of the outdoor shower and shared washer/dryer was never an issue. I would imagine it wouldn't be, unless there were socially inept tenants staying on the property. The ground floor unit has access to the property's single on-property parking space, so the second floor unit has to street park. Since the ground floor unit wasn't occupied most of the week, we were able to use the spot; however, the on-street parking was not an issue. Since the street is primarily residential, we were always able to find a spot on our specific block. The kitchen was up to date and had just about every utensil one could need if you choose to cook or simply enjoy no-shower happy hour after coming off the beach for the day. Access to Netflix and Hulu via the SmartTV was a nice benefit on the one night a storm hit the island (otherwise, we had perfect weather). The property is only a short walk from a number of restaurants (Terrace Tavern, Beach House Restaurant, Blue Water Cafe, Dockside Diner, Meltdown Ice Cream, and Delaware Avenue Oyster House - to name a few) in addition to being about 15 blocks from the shops in and around Bay Village. The owners were very nice and responsive with any questions. Our only recommendation would be to have the laminate flooring (which is in the kitchen area) throughout the unit. The carpeting, while clean, looked like it had enjoyed some better days - truly nit-picking there, though. Overall, a great experience and a unit we would certainly look at renting again!
Great Time on LBI
We were in town to attend a family wedding and the apartment was the icing on the cake!!
Had the opportunity to meet the neighbors downstairs and on either side of us and they were all great. I’d highly recommend this place to a friend
Perfect location for our young family
We had a great stay at Beach Haven Gardens! The layout and size was perfect and extremely clean! Neighbors were friendly and helpful. The best part was we were within a block of the beach. With little kids this was fantastic.
We hope to be back soon!
