About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy a beautiful, comfortable and immaculately cleaned three (3) bedroom, one bath and outside shower home that easily accommodates six vacationers on a quiet street in Surf City. There is 3-4 spaces for off street parking and a lovely fenced backyard for your privacy, allowing you to enjoy the roses, afternoon breezes and ocean air.

We renovated the kitchen in 2012 with SS appliances and granite countertops. Central air was installed during the winter of 2012/13 and new carpet throughout, fresh paint etc during the Fall of 2013. We totally renovated the bathroom in 2014.

Our home is on the bay side of Surf City with a short walk to the bay, all the beaches and local activities. Your favorite restaurant, deli/pizza shop, seafood take out, ice cream parlor or miniature putting course is only a block or two away.

About Marianne Zilles

We are a long term Pa and NJ family that first visited the island in 1963. After many years of visiting LBI, we bought our beach home for personal, family and friends enjoyment. Our Family now owns more than 10 homes on LBI, this makes for big family gatherings during the holidays, especially Memorial Day, July Fourth, Labor Day and Chowderfest weekend. Our family thinks LBI is magical and travel to family homes as frequently as possible

Marianne Zilles purchased this house in 1997

Why Marianne Zilles chose Long Beach Island

Do you like coffee in the morning on the front deck? Or wine and roses in the afternoon in the enclosed back yard? Or surf and turf for dinner from the grill or local restaurants? This is all possible for you and your family/friends any day from June to October.

What makes this house unique

Our home is well maintained and personally cleaned by the owner after each guest; inside and out. We renovated the kitchen in 2012 with new SS appliances and granite countertops. In addition, central air was installed during the winter of 2012 and new carpeting, paint and redo in the Fall of 2013. A renovated tile bathroom in 2014.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home was extremely neat, clean and well appointed. The updated kitchen and bath was perfect for our needs. The fenced in backyard let the parents relax in the oversized chairs while the kids played. We enjoyed dinner on the new table in the backyard and coffee on the front porch in the morning. We walked down to the bay side of the street to see the sunsets. The kids were happy with a short walk to mini golf and pizza. There were two ice cream shops we walked to as well. The bay beach a few blocks away was an excellent spot where we spent several days. We enjoyed the Surf City environmental classes where the kids went seining and learned about RCTB. A few blocks to the beach with the beach cart provided was wonderful. Great times and memories. Thank you to the wonderful owners for thinking of all the details and making everything so convenient.

Lovely Week in Surf City

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this home. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Our two children were able to each have a friend stay for a night or two. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Family Friendly

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this house! It was comfortable, clean, cool when needed, and convenient to beach & stores. We especially enjoyed the backyard for hanging out. We felt safe sitting out there in the evenings, and it was quiet and private. The beach was very clean, quiet, and folks in that area were friendly. I would definitely consider renting again. The owners were nice, friendly, and available in case of need. The island itself was great, in fact I did not want to leave. We had good fish on the north end and a yummy Italian bakery just south of Surf City. Thanks for the great, restful vacation!

Perfect Beach House for Family LBI Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week stay at this lovely home with our 2 children (3yr & 11yr). And we're ready to book our stay next year, we loved this house! Surf City is the best location in LBI for a family with kids. The house was clean, comfortable and large. It was equipped with everything you need, just unpack and throw the keys away! We definitely relaxed, enjoying our morning coffee on the front porch and grilling and chilling in the backyard at night. C/A and brand new kitchen were my favorite features (beautiful granite) Kids loved the new flat screen tv (tons of cable channels/ondemand) & wireless internet for all of our ipads and laptops. The fenced in yard was perfect for the young ones to play. We loved being short walking distance to everything, beach, Surf City pizza, Blue Claw fish market, ice cream and mini golf all on this quiet block. Must go to Okie'sButcher Shop for quality great meats. And renting bikes for the family was the best, we went for bike rides in the morning and after the beach. Head down to Beach Haven to Fantasy Island amusement - fun night and great rides. Then get dinner at Panzone's or Buckalew's. Great time by all, the neighboors were very nice too! The owners are a delight to work with and extremely responsive!

At North end of the island, there is the Barnegat Light House and park. You can fish, rent boats, picnic or used the beach. For the adventurous vacationer, you are welcome to climb to the top of the light house which provides a terrific view of the NJ Shore and Barnegat Bay
