Property description

Newly Remodeled large home on Barnegat Bay, Spacious, Well Appointed Home with fully equipped kitchen, spacious rooms and bedrooms. Your own PRIME BAYFRONT HOME in the very exclusive town of Mantoloking, just one block from one of the nicest and most private beaches at the Jersey Shore.

Enjoy MAGNIFICENT SUNSETS over the water from the huge waterfront Covered Porch, and commanding views out over the Barnegat Bay from the Second Floor 38’ Open Deck. Large sliding doors and windows look out over the Bay from both floors, providing beautiful views throughout the bright and open interior. Right on the water’s edge with a huge Dock on Barnegat Bay plus a short walk (under 300 yards) puts you on one of the most beautiful and Private Beaches in all of New Jersey. Our Home offers unlimited options to play, lie in the sun, or just relax by the Bay.

Rented by Owner – NO Fees or other charges

NOTE: Due to Hurricane Sandy our Yard is still not 'back to normal'. Our entire first floor has been completely renovated, and is nicer than ever before - see 'Details' page of our website for complete list of improvements. Our yard will have no lawn or landscaping - see 'Outside' page for current pictures of our yard as it will likely remain for 2016. Yard and adjoining empty lot have been covered with clean sand fill, and driveway and front walk are clean crushed concrete.

We anticipate having a NEW Boardwalk all along the water, connecting our Sunset Porch to our Dock, and we hope to make other outside improvements as well (still to be determined).
Because our Yard and neighborhood are not fully recovered, we will be renting below our regular rates again in 2016 - offering incredible value considering our great location, and our beautiful upgraded interior.

No Weddings, Proms or other “Party” events allowed at any time – Must be over 21 to sign Lease.


A Premium Home in Excellent Condition offers 4 Bedrooms plus a huge Great Room to comfortably sleep up to 17 people, with 3.5 Bathrooms plus an outside shower-house. Enjoy inside dining with Sunset Views, plus Covered Porch tables & chairs for 16 to dine 'al fresco' looking out over the Bay. A large Living Room w/ fireplace looks out to the Bay, and even the Kitchen and Wet Bar have Bay Views. The Gourmet Kitchen is completely outfitted with 2 refrigerators, ice makers, high-output dual-fuel Range, 2 full ovens plus microwave/convection oven, dishwasher, a full compliment of appliances, and a TV. Enjoy cooking outside on a large Weber gas grill - rain or shine on the Covered Porch.

Enjoy full shared use of our large Dock Complex for swimming, fishing, crabbing, or feeding the ducks. We have plenty of space to dock your boats or jet-skis. There is also a TV-Room/Den, and a huge multi-purpose Great Room with vaulted ceiling, convertible couches, and TV.

Other House Amenities include: 9-Foot Ceilings on the 1st Floor, 2-story grand Entry Foyer, Utility Room with clothes Washer and Dryer, 2-zone Central A/C, Wireless Hi-Speed Internet, Digital Cable TV, VCR/DVD, CD/Stereo, storage for bikes & boards, 9 parking spaces, and the full compliment of dishes, glassware, cookware, utensils, appliances, linens, towels and bedding. Sorry, but we do NOT allow pets. All Utilities and Beach Badges are INCLUDED.

A Wonderful Classic Shore Home for an extended family or a group of friends looking for a Premium vacation opportunity, with all the benefits of being right on Barnegat Bay AND just a short walk from a virtually Private Beach. Within a short drive there are many excellent Restaurants, a number of Golf Courses, Point Pleasant Boardwalk, Seaside Boardwalk, and just ½ hour away is Six Flags Great Adventure.

*Note: We are located in the real Borough of Mantoloking, not some development complex in Brick Town called “Mantoloking” Shores, Acres, Estates, etc. - for more information about our wonderful town please search 'Mantoloking' at wikipedia.
