First day there my expensive sunglasses were stolen by the housekeeper. I reported it to the owners and they ssaid they would reimburse me but of course that did not happen. The same housekeeper was constantly drinking on the property and one night was witnessed by the guests being groped in the front yard by a man. This is very... More

We spent a few days at Beach Haven and Joanne and Mark were wonderful hosts! Location is perfect as very close to the beach with walking everywhere. Breakfast is delicious. The courtyard very welcoming. We will be back!

From the moment you drive up to the parking area in front of a welcoming courtyard, armed with umbrellas, showers and tiki bar, your in the safe harbor provided by Mark & Joanne. Awesome decor and furnishings throughout this wonderfully built structure. The special care that Maggie & I have received over the many years has been nothing short of... More

Joanne and Mark were wonderful hosts! We were greeted with a sweet welcome bag and a handmade necklace. There is a lovely patio where you can sit and relax. Breakfast was good and they have coffee/water/lemonade available all day as well as mid day snacks. The location cannot be beat either! Nice place to unwind.

Very sweet couple. Comfortable atmosphere. Close to everything. No car needed once you're there. Breakfast was very good. I only wish you can get coffee before 7. The kitchen is locked and I am an early riser. I think its a lovely historical place. We stayed in the sunflower room. If you are looking for more modern accomodations...this is not... More

Mark and Joanne are wonderful hosts. They made us feel welcome in their inn from the very first moment. Breakfast was wonderful every morning and you are encouraged to make yourself at home. In addition there are accommodations in place so you can enjoy the beach on the last day of your visit.

The rooms at the Island Guest House B&B in Beach Haven, NJ are very small, outdated and cramped; with a bed, single bed plus luggage, the Wisteria room, as an example is almost impassable. Also not particularly safe or clean. The headboard on single bed was metal and wood and dangerous. Wires loose under chairs and tons of dust and... More

At over $300./night we expected better. The rooms are small and in need of updating. The grounds are in need of maintenance. The only guaranteed method of receiving hot water is to use the outdoor shower.

My cousin and I stayed at Island Guest House for a girl's getaway and it was fantastic! The guest rooms are clean and the property itself was very quaint. Joanne made us feel right at home. We enjoyed our days on the beach and our evenings on the patio. Just what we needed. We will be back!!!

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
