Living room on 2nd floor:
Enjoy the ocean & bay views and menagerie of colored glass sun and moon décor in the second Living room. This is a great place to escape to for movie night for the kids, a place to send the second-generation party or to have some peace and quiet when you close the downstairs door. It has an 60 inch big screen TV, popup storage table for puzzles, and game playing. We have over 150 videos from G to R rated movies to entertain our guests.

The front yard has 3 parking spots and additional 3-4 up the left side alley. Do you need to plug in your electric car? We have an OUTLET on the front porch and on the left alley of house.
The back yard has a large teak dining table with umbrella, a teak outdoor living room set, and a large 5 burner grilling station. The outside show is roomy for when you need to bring in the herd of little ones to rinse them before lunch. We have a clothesline to help keep ahead of the wet towel syndrome that sometimes occurs at the beach.
Grand Ole Rooftop Deck:
The 4th floor rooftop deck gives you the opportunity to tune out the world and relax. The hot tub will melt away the worries and let the good times sink in. Panoramic views of the island and surrounding towns over the bridge twinkle at night. You can see Old Barney's Light blip on the left, the causeway bridges rails glow, and to the right the Ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering Borgata Casino that changes color every few minutes. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms. It's nice to have room to sit in comfort and have a cocktail while visiting on the deck when watching the fireworks and the little one’s excitement! Plan your BBQ with friends and dine in the back yard with the large table and bench seating, outdoor living room set, kiddie picnic tables and new grill and large cooler for extra beverages. If you bring your own bikes, please keep them locked up.
This home can also be rented as first floor only (sleeps 8 with 3 bedrooms and pullout couch in living room) including 3 onsite parking spaces, same back yard use and rooftop deck access. (FIRST FLOOR ONLY RENTALS- 3 parking spots are reserved for owner and full second floor lock out for owners use, we do not share back yard or rooftop deck areas- these are for you).
Township now offers a transportation option to the beach. All you have to do is call and a Gator(beach buggy) will pick you up and take you down gear and all to the beach. It will pick you back up when called to take you home.
What to bring:
If you have bikes bring them, if it's too much to carry, rent them down the street. If you like to fish, bring your gear, or just walk up to the bait shop and buy some new presents for your crew to remember your trip.
We have beach chairs and umbrellas for your use, a boogie board and some tubes. The surf shop carries all these items also if you need more or want some other options. We have a toy box with sand toys, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. We supply 10 beach badges. You are able to buy more if needed. The checkers are not that crazy about taking a head count most of the time. Kids under 12 do not need them. Most kids are under 12 (wink, wink).
Volleyball set, badminton set, corn hole, soccer balls, kick ball, beach ball, tennis rackets and balls, pickle ball set, racket ball set, and a football.
No matter what weather pack those bathing suits year-round, the hot tub is on the rooftop deck 4 stories up and the views are amazingly soothing. A hot tub certainly takes the sting out of a cloudy rainy day for sure.
Here is some of the must do's if you can fit them in to your relaxing visit.
Fishing on the Black Whale or out of Barnegat Light.
Barnegat Lighthouse trek (214 steps!).
Nardi's Tavern (great bands and pizza, free bus transportation to and from daily).
Skipper Dipper Ice Cream.
Fantasy Island Amusement Park.
Howards Seafood Restaurant (great salmon dishes, and Lobster Bisque!).
Bay Village Schooner's Wharf is a must for shopping, Country Crumb in Bay Village has delicious Elephant ear cookies and Choc. chip cookies to die for!
Country Kettle Fudge should satisfy your sweet tooth. Just as a FYI, I don’t recommend the clam fudge they offer at Chowderfest first weekend of October!
Thundering Surf is fun for all ages with tubing down the lazy river, tubing shoots, a kiddie water playground, a huge mini golf on a 'mountain’, and lots of food and drinks to keep you going.
Go Geocaching with the kids or group! It’s a worldwide scavenger hunt! Set up your account and learn more about this fun outdoor sport before you come down. Do the LBI GeoTrail for those cloudy cool days when the beach is not an option. www.geocaching.com
Take a bucket a net up to the Bayview park and let the little ones find all the creatures in the sea, this is fun for all ages! There is also a playground, water sport lessons (SUP, Kiteboarding, Kayaking) and a place to go out on your own water gear, public bathrooms, pickle ball, basketball, bocce ball, dog park, volleyball. Pack a lunch or wait for the ice cream man at the picnic area. (We have the net gear and buckets to take there, everyone over 12 needs a beach badge here- and Joanie is strict with checking for them).
