About Paul Giegerich

Born with sand between my toes, as they say. Area native (Margate, next to Ventnor). Spent every summer here; lifeguard on the beach back in the day. Now live here year round. Three daughters were 'spoiled' the same way, with plenty of time at the shore each summer! This is the family home.

Paul Giegerich purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Paul Giegerich chose St. Leonard's Tract

My family rented the lower unit of the property for 7 summers before I had the opportunity to buy it and 'lock in' the great summers we have here. My kids and I love it here.

What makes this apartment unique

Anyone can go to the beach, but only those lucky ones with access to the bay can swim, fish, boat or just take in the sights of the bay in private! You can do both!- bay and beach!

Paradise on the Bay! Toys, location and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Paul's Casa on the Bay. His hospitality was tremendous and we thoroughly enjoyed playing with all the toys that this house has to offer. The apartment sits on the top floor; as you enter, in the large room, there is a kitchen, living room and dining room. Walk down the very long straight hallway and the bedrooms appear in this order; a 2 twin bed room, a medium sized bath with shower/tub, a queen sized bed room with a/c and a ceiling fan, a smaller room with a queen sized bed but an ensuite bath/shower and then the large master bedroom (no ensuite bath) with windows on all three sides and a terrific view of the canal/water. The place was very clean. There is a washer and a dryer. And a small roof deck with chairs and a picnic table. There are several kayaks to use, including a double one and many stand up paddle boards. If you want to go crabbing right off the dock, there is a bait shop just one block from the house to buy the fish for the crabs to eat! Paul loaned us his small crab pot and we caught 15 crabs over 3 days right off his dock! The location can't be beat. Very quiet street with good and very quiet neighbors. (We went in late Sept), so leaving your windows open at night was blissful. Amazing property this is close to everything. Paul has beach chairs and one short but very wide umbrella. Make sure to bring your bicycles. Make sure to go to the ice cream store, Custard's Last Stand, which is 2 blocks away. 2 yummy brunch places are a 6 minute bike ride (Agnes and Enlightened Cafe). The house is 4 blocks to beach and with all the toys for use in the canal, it was the best of both worlds! There is a Wawa four blocks away and we enjoyed buying bread and feeding the ducks each day. This place is heaven for kids, our is 8 years old and enjoyed scampering around, feeding the ducks, checking her crab pots and getting excited about walking to ice cream each day. Perfection. Thank you Paul!

Family Fun

  • 3 of 5

Had a good time over the week but some improvements could be addressed that would make it even better. Putting a towel rack in the bedrooms would be very helpful and keep towels off the floors. Very useful when big groups are there. Also only four coffee cups is not enough for groups greater than four. Lots of skillets but no sauce pans for cooking. Building a shelf for the DVD so it could be permanently connected would be a big help. Also making it more available. We found it the day we left. In general the unit is very nice, clean and family friendly. I am certain if we ever come that way again we would hope it is available. Sorry we couldn't make the boat trip, it would have really been the topper.

Owner's Response: Hi, Carl. Thanks for the suggestions. It's too bad you didn't ask: I have plenty more mugs and pans downstairs that I would have readily given you. Will work on the other stuff- hope you come back!

We Cannot Wait To Return!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our family beach vacation so late this year, as we were waiting for sport schedules to be definitive. I was so afraid we'd miss out on an awesome vacation home. We were so pleased with Paul's home in Ventnor City, NJ!! It was spacious and comfortable, provided all the amenities we were looking for, and the location on the bay and a short walk to the beach was perfect!!! We had a wonderful time, felt relaxed in the home and Paul was an extremely nice host. We already asked him to rebook for next summer -- and we can't wait!! Thanks for a wonderful vacation getaway!!

Perfect bay/beach combo with a delightful host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved Paul and his property. The deck and glorious bay-view master bedroom are without parallel for water junkies. The easy boat dock, replete with "toys," add huge value for junkies who want to do more than just gaze. Walk to good restaurants, terrific ice cream, and beautiful beach -- we could not have been happier. With a genial and attentive host, our stay could not have been better. Hope to come back soon!

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my friends to celebrate my boyfriends 40th Birthday! Paul was great to deal with and his next door neighbor Beth was super helpful. The master bedroom was defiantly the best room in the house, so many windows!

Thank You Paul for a great stay!

An amazing location "on" the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a quick trip for a race in Atlantic City, so a group of us stayed at Paul's 2nd floor getaway house. It's such an interesting spot if you've only been to A.C. The town is just south of A.C. but it's like night and day. Ventnor City is a family town. The house is literally on top of the bay with beautiful views, it's a few blocks away from the gorgeous beach and a quick drive to Atlantic City and Lucy the Elephant in Margate. The accommodations are welcoming and the house is very friendly for large groups. The second story deck and the side deck with kayaks and paddle boards are the icing on the cake. I've stayed here twice and would definitely stay here again. Paul is super nice and a great homeaway owner to work with.
