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 Ventnor City

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!

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.

Great home on the inter coastal waterway.

  • 5 of 5

Paul was very attentive to all of our requests- getting access to the water toys and beach chairs and beach passes etc. I'm not sure if it's noted but the rental is a duplex. We were a little worried about being too noisy because the rental is right on top of where Paul lives. We have a baby that wakes up early and we had lots of visitors at night. It didn't end up being an issue. We had no complaints from Paul and we didn't hear a peep from downstairs, not that it would have mattered to us.

The master bedroom with the waterview was breathtaking. We loved waking up in that beautiful, sunny room. There is plenty to do within walking distance of the home. We had a great dinner at Red Room one night ( 2 blocks away). There is an ice cream shop, WAWA, and CVS, all very close. It was so nice to sit on the deck. We grilled a few nights and enjoyed the air and the views. We also took advantage of the kayaks and paddle boards. Such a nice bonus. The beach in Ventnor is great and there is a lifeguard at Dorset Ave, the beach that is closest to the house. The kitchen had been updated as well as the bathroom. Both were very nice. We had nothing but good things to say about our trip. Thank you!

Very nice apartment. Spacious with beautiful back room. But don't be deceived by the picture, you are not permitted to use the dock pictured. Renters dock is small and sits back between the houses. July 2015

Owner's Response: Perhaps some clarification is in order: there are two floating docks at the house. The guest dock is 250sf vs. the boat dock which is 150sf, so it's actually much larger. Granted, it is set back between houses as you say, but this has not been an issue for any prior guests.

We want more weeks next year!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly the shore vacation we had always dreamed about. We wouldn't change one bit - so much so that we were heart-broken to leave and daydreaming ways to stay longer. Paul was an excellent host - low-key, but attentive and ensuring we had everything we needed. We started out vacation with my family of 5 (3 teenagers) and my parents, and then it was just the five of us - we never felt crowded - the place is so airy and open. There was no need for air conditioning - just the sea breezes. Waking every morning on the water like that with the seagulls, watching the rowers and boats go by was just fantastic. We ended every day on the deck watching every sunset and even seeing the dragon boat practicing. We used the kayaks and paddle boards to explore the waterways after spending the day on the beach, or just went swimming in the bay/waterway. The house has everything needed for a vacation stay, and local shops are so close - walk or bike. We'll never forget this week and want to come back. Thanks again, Paul.
