About Sherry

The Castle was custom built by my husband, Ted.It was a dream come true. We had so much fun designing it. Although it is our home, while you're on vacation we want you to feel like it is yours too. So come see why it's not just another home, but The Castle. 'The King is the king, until the Queen arrives.'

Sherry purchased this house in 2002

Why Sherry chose Ship Bottom

We came to 14th Street in 1985, and never left. The location offers quick access to the beach, yet close to the Causeway Bridge too.

Great trip at the shore

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful trip to the castle. This home is located just a few doors down to the beach. We had 2 families of 4 for a total of 8 people and had plenty of room for everyone. There were plenty of beach chairs and toys for the kids to use daily and all the amenities one would need to have a wonderful vacation. The house was very clean upon arrival and Sherry really thought of everything that made our stay a stress free one.

And when we returned home Sherry reached out to let us know she found our child's blanket which she promptly sent back along with our security deposit.

A+ service all around. Thanks Sherry!

Another great vacation at The Castle, just as wonderful as last year! Our family really enjoyed ourselves, my sister's two-year old twin grandchildren provided us with much laughter and love. The second week was a real scorcher, but the air conditioning kept us comfortably cool. Again, The Castle is just a beautifully furnished and equipped home. We were so glad Sandy did not visit!!!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at "The Castle" the week of my wedding. It was very spacious and clean, the house exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of room for all of us that we were never jammed together. The views were amazing, especially the rooftop deck. It was also great to have an elevator, but, not for using instead of the stairs, for loading the groceries, luggage and wedding supplies. It was definitely a bonus! The owner was wonderful to work with. She was very accommodating and friendly. We would highly recommend staying here and would definitely stay here again!

Great time!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two weeks at The Castle, the weather was great and we actually walked to the Bayberry!

Th elevator was wonderful for me, a disabled person, and with the handicapped ramp at the end of your street, I was able to take my scooter up and watch the ocean. Youe house is beautifully furnished and well-equipped; we will have great memories of staying there.

vacation at the Castle

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with our family at the "Castle" in Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island. The home is beautiful, very clean, well-equipped for cooking, and most convenient to the beach. It is only three houses away from the beach. The owner was very helpful with her notes and suggestions in the binder left at the house. The listing is accurate regarding the location and appearance of the rooms. I would highly recommend this home for you to vacation with your family.Ship Bottom is a quiet community and very convenient to the bridge for going to food stores, etc. Much traffic on Saturday but the rest of the week is fine.The elevator in the house is a great convenience when you bring in the food or your luggage. Would be great for someone who is disabled.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to LBI and I cannot say enough about it! The house was perfect for a large family (even on a rainy day!)The house was so clean and spacious and every room was decorated beautifully and stocked with all the supplies you could possibly want or need.

It felt like it was our home on LBI.

Everything about this trip was enjoyable from the planning (the owners are a pleasure) to the clean up (the couple that helps the owners at checkout were also a pleasure) Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.
