We never been at a bed and breakfast before and we didn't know what to expect. Well I must say that we felt right at home. The building was a charming Victorian house that was restored. The breakfasts were out of this world. The beach is a beautiful beach, just down the road. I wish I could cook as well... More

Stayed there last year as a last minute idea......They were VERY accommodating! Enjoyed it so much, planned it & went back for 10 days. It's like going home, except you don't have to make your bed or do the dishes. Friendly and helpful staff. They bend over backwards to make you happy & feel at home. I love it &... More

Last year needed a place at the last minute & found Marc & Joann. Had such a lovely time, came back this year for 10 full days. It's like being home on vacation, but you don't have to make your bed or do the dishes. No matter my request, my wish was granted with a smile. Place is perfect, clean... More

The visit began with us arriving at 12:00pm and being refused a beach pass until our room was available which was not until 2:00 pm because he said his cleaning girl hadn't shown up that morning. He would only give us a pass if we paid an additional $20. When we finally checked into our room, it was a very... More

Over the phone, Mark and his wife were very friendly and I was really looking forward to our stay based on that and also based on the reviews I read. When we arrived, Mark seemed a little overwhelmed, while his wife Joann seemed very upbeat from the short time we saw her. Both collectively, their minds seemed elsewhere. We showed... More

My family felt so at home in this wonderful warm friendly guest house. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning. Loved riding the bicycles, had a lobster feast in the garden and looked forward to the afternoon tea and snacks. Mark and Joanne were lovely hosts who made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond for us to... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The owners made us feel so comfortable like it was our own house. The breakfast was awesome and the location is perfect. We were near the beach and all the shopping and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here when visiting LBI

My daughter had given us a gift certificate several years ago for a one night stay at this B&B. Unfortunately hurricane "Sandie" postponed our trip until my recent birthday. We stayed three nights and had just a wonderful time. Joanne and Mark are very accommodating hosts, breakfasts were great, and our room although small, was very cozy and comfortable. We'll... More

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
