About the owner: My wife Kathy and I were born and raised right here in NJ and grew up vacationing 'down the shore' on Long Beach Island. We love Ship Bottom and hope you will enjoy staying in our home as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Ship Bottom: This property is a dream come true for my wife. We spent the first 8 summers of my children's lives vacationing in a house just a stone throw away from this location. Some day we dreamed of owning a little piece of this relaxing island paradise and in 2013 our dream came true! We like this area for its beautiful wide beaches, quiet family friendly neighborhood, and convenient, central location. Easy access on and off the Island is also a big plus and now we have the FREE LBI Shuttle...what else could you ask for?
The Unique Benefits at this House: Once you step out on to the roof top decks, you will see why we chose this house. Watch the sun come up out of the ocean or go down into the bay. Panoramic views from one of the highest roof top decks in Ship Bottom. Then, when its time to go inside, relax with all of the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. Our guests tell us the nicest feature/benefit we have is having a pool in a ocean block rental. You have the best of both words...just steps to the beach or steps to the pool. Spend your mornings on the beach, afternoons by the pool, cocktail hour on the roof top deck to see the sun go down! Then walk to your favorite restaurant, mini golf, or ice cream. Park the car and enjoy your beach vacation down the jersey Shore!
