Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This is not just a rental home, this is a home that we use all year round. It is our escape and is well appointed to make your vacation easy and simple. The room colors are beachy and tranquil. In addition to the 4 bedrooms, there is a dining room, living room and separate TV room. This is a very deceivingly spacious home.

It is located close to many shoppes and a wide array of dining choices. The bay beach, for those non-surf swimmers, is a three block walk or bike ride west on our street.

We have a lovely back patio area that is truly unique to most properties on LBI. There is a view of the ocean from one of the upstairs bedrooms with a quaint deck; perfect for early morning coffee or early evening cocktails for two.

Don't forget September is a beautiful time on LBI; the water is warm and the crowds are gone.

About The Owner

I AM 60 YEARS OLD. I VACATIONED ON THE ISLAND SINCE I WAS 2 YEARS OLD. MY HUSBAND AND I CONTINUED THAT TRADITION IN OUR MARRIAGE. OUR DAUGHTERS, AND NOW OUR GRANDCHILDREN, SPEND TIME IN THE SUMMER AND OFF SEASON ON THE ISLAND.

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

Why The Owner chose Surf City

WE HAVE SPENT VACATIONS IN MANY OTHER COMMUNITIES ON THE ISLAND BEFORE WE FOUND OUR OPPORTUNITY TO BUY A HOME. WE ENJOYED EACH ONE SINCE EVERY COMMUNITY OFFERS A LITTLE DIFFERENT ISLAND EXPEREINCE. WE DECIDED TO PURCHASE IN SURF CITY BECAUSE WE FEEL IT IS CENTRALLY LOCATED. WE SEARCH THE BEACHES OF BARNAGET LIGHT FOR OCEAN TREASURES AND ALWAYS SPEND A DAY AT THE WATER SLIDES IN BEACH HAVEN AND THE MORE COMMERCIAL END OF THE ISLAND EVERY YEAR.

What makes this house unique

SURF CITY PROVIDES QUICK ON AND OFF ACCESS TO THE ISLAND. EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED FOR A BEACH VACATION IS WITHIN A WALK OR A BIKE RIDE. IF YOU CHOOSE, YOU CAN PARK AND VIRTUALLY NEVER GET BACK INTO YOUR CAR UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO GO HOME. SURF CITY AND SOME OTHER ISLAND COMMUNITIES ARE UNIQUE BECAUSE YOU CAN GO ON ANY STREET AND HAVE THE FEEL OF YOUR VERY OWN PERSONAL ENTRY TO THE BEACH.

WE BOUGHT THIS PARTICULAR HOUSE BECAUSE OF THE CAPE COD STYLE. WE DECORATED THE HOUSE SO IT FEELS LIKE HOME, NOT ONLY TO US, BUT FOR ANYONE THAT CHOOSES OUR HOME AS THEIR VACATION SPOT. ENJOY!

Don't forget about the lighthouse and museums on the island. or...... just take your towel, a beach chair and enjoy the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.

Great Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a girls beach weekend and it was absolutely perfect! The house was cozy and comfortable, very clean and well maintained. We had a wonderful time sitting on the back patio which is beautiful. We also were in walking distance of some great restaurants, shops, and of course the beach! This house was perfect for us but also would be great for a family fun vacation!

Fantastic Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! There was plenty of room for my family of four (two small children) plus my mother, Aunt and Brother. We had mild weather, so we didn't notice the "no AC" except for one very humid day. Overall, it didn't detract from the quality of the property and the very nice time we had. I only wish we could have stayed longer than a week.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with ample space! The backyard is private and gorgeous. Fantasic location - great ice cream place on the corner. We enjoyed it so much that we are renting again, and plan to do so as long as we vacation on LBI.
