1. Start Early
Studies show that most families and couples planning summer vacations have already decided where they are going before March. Don’t wait until the last minute, or some of the best rentals and rooms may already be taken.
2. Do Your Research
North End? South End? Centrally located? Find out which area you like best in terms of activities, dining, location, and beach accessibility before searching for a rental (keep in mind that the LBI Shuttle Service makes the entire island conveniently accessible). This will help you narrow your search and also serve as an introduction to the area.
3. Dig a Little Deeper
Use the “Contact Us” features on Realty, Rental, and Hotel/Motel Websites to ask specific questions about the rentals and rooms you are interested in. This can help you make an informed decisions about your purchase
4. Think Outside the Box
Consider vacationing in the shoulder season. May – June and September – October are cool, gorgeous, filled with fun events, and not crowded.
5. Plan Ahead
Stay informed about cancellation policies, weekly traffic volume, and weather forecasts. LBI is beautiful in all weather and there is always something to do, so come prepared!
