We stayed 2 nights for a wedding in Beach Haven. Mark and Joanne couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Our room was very quaint and pretty and clean. It did not, however, have a closet or hooks for hanging clothes. This was inconvenient since we had dress clothes for the wedding. The breakfasts were delicious and the breakfast room... More

Stayed here with family for a weekend for a wedding we came up to NJ for. We stayed in the B1-B2 suite (Michael's room and the Stained glass room that has a connecting door to the rooms) -2nd floor right at the top of the stairs. Those rooms are on the front of the house. We found Michael's room to... More

We stayed at Island Guest House for a wedding in LBI. Wonderful experience! Joanne and Mark were very accommodating. The house is wonderful and has rooms for all preferences. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Located in a great part of the island close to shops and things to do. We are looking forward to coming back one day!

My boyfriend and I decided last minute that we would stay over night after a long day at the beach. We stumbled upon The Island Guest House, what a gem! Mark was extremely welcoming, got us set up with a room and a list of great restaurants to get dinner. The rooms were nice, very comfortable and clean. They have... More

Mark and Joanne are always warm, friendly and willing to help with recommendations and information on what's happening on the island. My mom and I had a wonderful stay and enjoyed every breakfast and afternoon tea. Joanne has the best breakfast casseroles, pumpkin bread, and cupcakes ever! Glad to be a VIP and never leave without getting hugs from them.

For years, my grandmother and I have been traveling to Beach Haven for our vacation in the summer. It had been 10 years since our last trip, and our normal place was taken over by new people, so we branched out & tried something new. We both wished that we would have done this switch years ago! Mark & Joanne... More

Thank you Mark & Joanne for making our stay in LBI an enjoyable one. Any questions we had were answered; breakfast was awesome; Joanne made sure she saved me some after I went out for a late morning run; she even stopped and warmed up anything that I wanted. Conversation was great; Mark even gave us a tour of the... More

" Welcome Home" is the feeling we get when my wife and I stay at the Island Guest House. Comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, warm and friendly hosts (Mark, Joanne & Victoria) and location, location, location. Everything is in walking distance. Ocean (yea!). Fine dinning. Gift shopping. Adult beverages. Entertainment. I am so looking forward to our next visit to our... More

The Island Guest House was at the center of the perfect beach vacation we had hoped for. With a short walk to the beach and to local shopping, its location allowed us to park the car and not need it for all our day and night activities. Joanne's breakfasts were yummy and presented with style. The rooms are homey and... More

"Enter as guests…leave as friends" are the words that welcome you as you enter this quaint, homey B&B and it couldn't be any more true. Joanne, Mark and Victoria are the most welcoming, accommodating hosts and you are treated as close friends. The location is perfect …a short walk to the beach, eateries, entertainment and shopping. A fabulous breakfast awaits... More

It is so heartwarming to hear that we could create a place that you enjoyed so much! Thank you also for your kind words to our daughter and manager, Victoria, who at 24 is herself finding the satisfaction of doing a job well and being appreciated for it. A wonderful review is such a great incentive to go even more... More
