Mary Ann and Tom want to WELCOME YOUR GROUP to BEACH HOUSE RETREATS!
We have lived on LBI our whole lives. We moved here permanently in 2006. What a blessing it has been to see the island in all 4 seasons! From Fun Summer to Indian Summer Fall through picturesque Winter and a Blink of Spring, LBI is a great place to gather good times with your loved ones.
Make yourself at home! Surprise, we have a Gift Tray at check in with some wonderful treats for you and your guests. Our Information Binder will have everything you need at your fingertips (shuttle info, mass schedule, coupons, things to do, emergency numbers, storm prep list, FAQs, and more. We have collected most of the islands eatery menus to make take out and meal decisions easier. We believe giving you more info about the house, area and events is a huge value. We are on call if you need a recommendation or can’t find something you need or help with a house issue.
