Having our trip to Aruba cancelled last minute by hurricane Irene, and already being packed for a beach vacation, we had to quickly find an alternative. We have always enjoyed renting on LBI and after seeing that the island had not been hit by the storm, we decided to try a last minute booking. highly rated by tripadvisor and with a nice looking pool, (one of my kids does not like ocean), we called and were able to secure a spot at the Sea Spray. Travelling with the three almost adult children available, we were given a two bedroom efficiency which turned out to be the lower floor of a house across the street to the motel. it was set up really nicely and had daily maid service and we were able to use all of the motels facilities, not to mention, we were three houses away from a beautiful stretch of beach. the pool was great, and filled with pool toys for the younger set, there was ping-pong, basketball, fussball and several large gas grills for guest use. aside from clothing, personal items, and food supplies, the only thing we needed to bring,(and were informed up front) was beach towels. bring plenty! A farm market, supermarket, Fantasy Island, and many restaurants, were within easy drive or bike ride(bring your own or rent at nearby "Boardwalk shop" . really had a great and relaxing time. and may never rent again on LBI, now spoiled with maid service. Clean and well kept, friendly and helpful owners, would definitely return. location is terrific as well, safe and away from the crowds.Please understand, this is not the Ritz Carlton, but is absolutely the best of LBI. while here, don't miss the bay village pizza, and the new england chowder in a bread bowl behind it.
