  • Consistently Perfect Vacation House, very close to beach!

    "We have been renting this house on LBI for over 15 years & have never had a single problem during that time. We would never think of staying anywhere else because the home is immaculate, in a great & quiet location, and is as comfortable as our own home. Pictures completely accurate! The house is always incredibly clean – including all surfaces & the furniture. The décor is always updated and is bright, airy & comfy. It’s obvious that maintenance is done every year because nothing ever gets run down or stops working. It has all the necessary amenities & more. The couches & beds are all very comfy. Nice TV with dvd player and satellite dish (with lots of channels, not just a few basic ones!) for nights staying in. Gas grill is always clean and ready to use. Outdoor shower is convenient for after the beach & completely private/enclosed. Kitchen is fully equipped. There is central air, but the nice elevated height and proximity to the beach means there is usually a great ocean breeze coming through the windows. The deck is large, has a picnic table & great for eating meals. It’s the perfect location in the center of LBI. The walk to the beach is very short & convenient – you only have to walk past a few houses on the quiet side street that the house is located on to get there; easy to run back up to the house if you forget something. It’s also a quick walk to CVS, a nice mini-golf place & several tasty casual restaurants. The neighborhood is incredibly safe & quiet. We never hear any commotion during the day or at night & have never had any problems at all. The owners are absolutely fabulous! They are always available to address any issues or concerns you may have. They ensure everything is as it should be in the house, are incredibly organized and on top of everything with the entire rental process & are a great resource if you have any questions about the area. The best part is that our experiences renting & staying at this house have been consistent year after year."

  • Great Vacation with the Family

    "Highly recommend this home... with a family that is split between lazing around a pool all day vs. boogie boarding at the beach, this was the perfect location for us. From the moment we got there, we were greeted with a tour and a welcome basket of goodies... great way to start the stay. The new, large pool is immaculate and so is the home. There are plenty of decks to "get away form it all" and a large stone patio in the back for family dinners. There is plenty of stores, restaurants, mini golf and an arcade all walking distance. We will definately be renting again"

  • Beautiful new construction bayfront rental

    "This house is well worth the money for he week to rent. The inside of the unit is beautiful and newly constructed. The master bedroom has a beautiful view out of they bay. You could sit on the deck all day and watch the bay and boats go by. If you have a boat this property is ideally located and a great rental. We will be coming back again and cannot say enough nice things about this rental, the landlord is very nice and laid back and we found him extremely accommodating of our needs."

  • Beachy Blue House

    "This great home is just steps away from the entrance to the beach. It is described accurately in the listing, although the view from the dining room and living room are just outstanding, better than the listing photos show! Upon our arrival last weekend, we were very pleased to enter a spotless house, which is decorated in a very beachy way. The furnishings are so comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the owner provides many, many nice amenities. We spent every day on the absolutely beautiful beach, evenings grilling delicious dinners on the wonderful Weber gas grill, and exploring the island with our family. We enjoyed dining at the the Blue Water Cafe and the Boathouse, taking our little granddaughter on her first rides at Fantasy Island, and of course shopping at Bay Village. If our calendars and schedules work out, we would love to return next summer!"

Ship Bottom Travel Tips

Learn A Little Bit of History with Ship Bottom Vacation Rentals"

According to John Bailey Lloyd, a local historian for the Long Beach, New Jersey region, Ship Bottom got its name in 1817 when a young woman was rescued from the hull of a wrecked ship that had washed up on nearby shores. This romantic tale is just one of the many idyllic features of Ship Bottom. Today, Ship Bottom is more than just a tale of a damsel in distress and her rescue; it is also a wonderful vacation spot. There are numerous Ship Bottom vacation rentals available for those looking for a sunny, sandy vacation. In addition to looking into Ship Bottom lodging, take a peek at all of the Long Beach Island beach houses to see what is available.

Eat Your Heart Out

Let's face it, one of the best parts of vacation is enjoying some wonderful meals. Vacation is a time to relax and enjoy life. While staying in one of the Ship Bottom vacation rentals, you can enjoy making some of your favorite home made dishes in the equipped kitchen. This will save you plenty of money and allow you to splurge a few times on nice meals out. Ravioli & More specializes in Italian dishes, as the name suggests. Yellowfin is a New American restaurant with an Asian influence and a great seafood menu. And there are many other options as well.

Splurge and Save

One of the best things about staying in one of the available Ship Bottom vacation rentals is that you'll get much more for your money as compared to what you would get in a hotel. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and laundry services are all included in Ship Bottom lodging options. Both Ship Bottom lodging in particular and Long Beach Island beach houses in general will allow you to relax like your are at home with the peace of mind of knowing that you are spending your money wisely.
