Why The Owner chose Long Beach Island

I have spent most summers on the Jersey Shore from birth too now. LBI was is my favorite Jersey Beach and as a teenager would surf the break from behind 7-11 in Ship Bottom to past my house in Surf City. Meeting my wife Patricia, also a Jersey Beach fan has made the house our Home to share and want you to feel like it is your Home away from Home. 2015 will be 16th summer that I have rented the house and please read the reviews from past renters. We are new to VRBO, only joining in 2008 and now get about 80% of our new renters from site. I respond quickly to email requests about dates and to answer questions about the house.

What makes this house unique

The private walkway over the dune gives convenient access onto the beach and also quick trips off for bathroom breaks, snacks and lunch. A covered outside shower with Hot and Cold water with picnic table. House has 4 bedrooms, with 1st floor bedroom set up as a studio with Queen bed, Pull out sofa Queen bed and twin Daybed. Second floor has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and Laundry gives a quiet space for people to have with a full house. Master suite has large french doors with twin transom windows to join large triple window giving great views of the Beach with private deck to enjoy morning coffee and paper. The third floor provides flowing Ocean View from all directions. 14 Foot Vaulted Ceiling provide Living space, dinning space and update modern Kitchen and 1/2 bath. 2 decks, 1 length of house facing the ocean with 2 slidding doors giving access to both living area and dinning room area. Small deck provides great sunset views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The eastern and southern panoramic views from the interior and exterior of the upper level are spectacular. The house furnishings and beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. were plentiful and usable by many. The finished recent upgrades and future intended ones will enhance an already enjoyable oceanfront residence that has an owner who is personally responsive to the renters. That in itself, is a huge plus for perspective renters…….Bob

The perfect place on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This summer was our 17th year in a row of staying at this property. I can not speak highly enough of the owner, who continues to pour money back into the house every year. He is very responsive to any suggestions, and is as nice as can be. The house and it's location on the beach are perfect. Having our own private walkway on & off the beach is a huge bonus. And there is no better balcony for sitting, relaxing, and enjoying a spectacular view of the beach & the ocean. Would highly recommend.

Family get together ... a continued tradition

  • 5 of 5

Long Beach Island and this house in Surf City has been a gathering point for my family since 2008. While I spend time on third floor deck watching the ocean, my daughters family and grandson enjoy the beach. Close to the bridge. The space allows family and friends not staying over to get together and enjoy food and company. Easy to book and owner addresses all issues with a handyman and cleaning team making each time we have stayed a pleasure

Back again at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just finalized our 2017 stay at this beach house while together with family tonight. Why is my extended family returning for our sixth trip to this home on the beach in Surf City. We want for nothing while staying here. Views, private access to beach, amazing beach, a casual slope to ocean versuses a sharp drop off in the water. Plus the house has everything you need to feel at home. I simply sent an email request for an open week, the owner responded quickly, a local real estate company will email me a lease and take payment. We pick and drop off keys in Surf City at real estate company and just enjoy being home on Long Beach Island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. Our goal is to make our LBI beach rental a home away from home at the beach. Returning renters allow us to invest in the property year. As you booked yesterday for 2017, we have a few summer and Spring and fall weeks to book now. We have 2 weeks left in 2016 including New Years week. Renovations will start January 4th 2017. Our first booked renter is April 14th Easter week

Family Gathering on Long Beach Island Tradition

  • 5 of 5

Three story house with a private walkway to the beach with the ocean in your backyard. Great place for a multi-generational family vacation. Have spent time there each summer since 2000. I look forward to this family friendly borough on beautiful Long Beach Island each year. Walks on the beach, picking up shells along the way, mini-golf with the grandchildren and wonderful restaurants. You couldn't ask for more in a beach vacation

Long beach Island is a wonderful place to explore and vacation. The house is located in the center of the Island in Surf City NJ. Surf City offers many shops and restaurant to enjoy as a couple or family. A mile walk North into heart of Surf City shops or a mile walk South into Ship Bottom offers a fun experience.

There is an updated guide book I created on VRBO with there partner GOGOBOT. There are more then 70 places I have used and wrote reviews and taken pictures of for you to explore via the internet.

Long Beach Island (LBI) is 18 miles long barrier Island that is 6 miles out to sea. Exit 63 on Garden State Parkway will take you to RTE. 72 which will take you to LBI. Off RTE 72 there are many large box stores that you can pick up most supplies at cheaper prices then on LBI. Shops include Costco, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Kmart, Kohls, Bed Bath and Beyond, BJ wholesalers, Lowes, Home Depot, Staples and others.

Off RTE 72 is also Buy Rite Liquor which offers best Wine, Beer and Sprits selection in area at cheapest prices. LBI has several Liquor store that are close to the house within about a mile or so.

There is a great old Butcher shop and several great fish markets in Surf City to bring home food to BBQ or cook in the modern kitchen at the house. While I have spent weeks staying within a mile of the house in Surf City and being very happy, there is a lot to the area you can explore. Go North to the Light House ( awesome diner there in the summer and weekends off season. Coming back stop off in Harvey Cedars for great restaurants and two food markets.

Walk or drive Surf City shops. Enjoy restaurants and shops in Ship Bottom.

Head South to explore several towns that includes Beach Haven in your plans. Tons of shops, restaurants and kids attractions. Try rides and games at Fantasy Island or water park near there. During the summer 24 hour Chicken and the Egg is open

You can also leave the island to go to restaurants in Manahawkin within 6 miles of LBI.

Take GSP south to exit 48 and enjoys shops and restaurants in Historic Smithville, NJ. Atlantic City is about 45 minutes South of LBI on GSP. Enjoy boardwalk, casinos and restaurants.

Cape May Zoo and Lighthouse and downtown is about 1 hour South of LBI.
