I bought the property in May of 2000 and have made this home your home at the beach to rent. My wife, son and I love the home and want you to make families memories for all at this Oceanfront home located in Surf City on Long Beach Island off S 2nd street
Owner purchased this House in 2000
Why Owner chose Surf City
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. 2018 will be 19th 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. Please complete the VRBO inquiry with full name and phone number.

The perfect place on the beach
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.
Thank you for staying with us so many years and writing a current review from 2017. We are booking 2018 Summer and Spring week now May25th Jun2 Jul7 Jul14th
Awesome week in LBI
We have been vacationing in LBI for years, and always pick a different spot. This oceanfront beauty does NOT disappoint. Extremely well maintained...and the most stocked beach house I have EVER rented. You seriously will want for nothing here and at least 1/2 of the supplies I brought with me I could have left at home. There are even kid friendly touches like gates and a high chair. The views are amazing and really the pictures do not do them justice (and the pics and videos the owner has are amazing...so imagine what those views really look like). It's rare to get ocean views from both the entire living space and bedrooms in LBI because of the dunes. We normally leave the home a lot more than we did this week, because the views were just amazing we ate home almost all week! Location in LBI is ideal bc it is close to the causeway and also short rides up or down the island. It's within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and other amenities. There is even a great park on the bay and the library only a few blocks away. The owner is meticulous and leaves detailed instructions on all the major systems in the home. Their pride in ownership definitely shows and they are actively involved in maintain, upgrading and managing the property which is a huge plus (plus they use a relator for piece of mind). Washer and dryer are brand new and very efficient. Setup is great with the ground floor bedroom nice for family members who like a little privacy! Parking is tight, but if that's the only "complaint", you are doing it right! Oceanfront with your own walkway is seriously the only way to go - and once you stay at a property with this type of access, you will not want to stay any other way. Pricing is in line with other LBI rentals that aren't even oceanfront, which is awesome. Overall, we had a great experience here and if we return to LBI for our yearly vacation, we will absolutely choose this home (only reason we wouldn't is to try a different beach all together, which we sometimes like to change it up!). We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a place in LBI. Thank you Joseph for opening your home to us!

Family get together ... a continued tradition
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
Thank you for staying with us again and for writing a review. We have three summer weeks left for 2017 - Memorial week 8 night, Jun24 and July 29th and off season weeks in April and September. You can book now
Family Gathering on Long Beach Island Tradition
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
Thank you for staying with us again and for sharing a review. I realize you requested a different week in 2017 and you are on a Waitlist for weeks you asked for in 2017. Fall 2016 and summer 2017 booking now. 2016 renters have 30 days to email about returning.
Couldn't have been better! Great family time. They really take every aspect of the family getaway into consideration. Close to the beach! Plenty of room! Perfect weather :-)

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.
