About Bob Petruzzi

Our family has enjoyed going to the beach for many years. We like to relax and rejuvenate and find the beach a perfect place to do so. Having grown up in Delaware County, PA, as a child, my family always spent time in the summer at the beach. For the last 20 years, my family has spent time in Sea Isle City. My children are now young adults but enjoy coming to the beach to relax and for family time. As a mental health professional, I know what helps people to relax and refresh. Also as an educator who has spent many years working with children, I know how to make them feel comfortable in a setting as well. I find that there are many things to do in Sea Isle City as I love the beach, play tennis, bike and like to walk. All of these activities are right at our doorstep. We have provided as many amenities as possible so that people who stay in our home also have a chance to relax and refresh themselves. Our current renters usually comment on how well kept and clean we keep our home as well as all of the amenities we provide. Please give me a call if you would like more information as I enjoy sharing information about our home.

Bob Petruzzi purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Petruzzi chose Sea Isle City

My family originally rented in Sea Isle City but soon decided to purchase a home. We bought a home several blocks away from our current home. It was a beachblock duplex and we bought the first floor. We could see the ocean but always talked of improved views and without all of the power lines which interfere with the view. A few years after owning the first floor, we bought the second floor with the idea being that we could take it down and build a side by side some day. In 2011, we took down the property and started to get ready to rebuild. Our plan was to sell one side and keep the other. In order to help decide what we wanted in the property, we started to look at new construction and beachfront homes for ideas. When we walked into our current home, we were so amazed by the construction, size, layout, views and amenities that we decided to sell both sides of the building we were constructing and bought this beachfront. We couldn't be happier. We also chose our home for the location in town as this is a quieter area and where the neighbors all take great pride in how their homes look. We share our home with renters in the summer (we keep some time for ourselves) and use it throughout the Fall and Spring.

What makes this house unique

No doubt the most spectacular thing about our home and the most compelling reason for us to purchase it was the views. We have 6 decks on our home. Four of the decks are covered and two are open. In the morning, we like to sit on the top deck off of the master bedroom suite with a cup of coffee and watch the bikers and joggers go past our home. The views off of the fourth floor deck on the ocean side are breathtaking. This deck is great for sunning during the day. This floor is completely private from the rest of the home with its own stereo system in the master suite and on the ocean front deck if you just want to escape and relax. During the day, wherever you are in the family room and kitchen or main deck, the views are stunning. Since this deck is covered, it's comfortable being outside. Being right on the ocean, we usually have a good breeze. If you open the doors to the decks on each end of the house (beach and street side), the breeze that blows through is amazing. We find nothing better than opening windows and sliders to enjoy the breeze, smells and sounds of the ocean. Since the beach is only a few steps away, it's easy to go in the morning and return home when you want to and then go back. We find the beach particularly beautiful in the early evening when the sun is beginning to set. If you prefer, you can sit on the deck and enjoy the whole experience without really leaving our home. For us, we like to walk on the sand and walk up and down the beach during the day. Of course, a quick dip in the ocean is always refreshing. Being on 67th St., we're a quick drive or walk to Acme for a few supplies. We always walk a few times to Marita's, our favorite ice cream store in town. There are many places to dine in town but we also enjoy take out on the main deck with the views. On a clear night, you get a great view of the lights in Atlantic City. So if you decide to stay in our home, we're sure you'll find it peaceful and restful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had an awesome time! Your home is huge and the elevator was so helpful for all of the bags and groceries. A great place to get the whole family together. Hope to be back.

Great Home

  • 4 of 5

This house is right on the beach and it's wonderful to have a bathroom in each bedroom. I invited my children and grandchildren along with other friends. There was plenty of room. My only complaint would be, there is no real view from the 4th floor master bedroom unless you go out to the deck (I like to be at the beach, but enjoy escaping the sun for a few hours in the afternoon.) Many amenities and a great bonus room on the ground floor. There were washers and dryers on each floor which also came in handy with my group.

Perfect Home for Extended Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My extended family spent a total of 3 weeks at this beautiful home. I don't think we could have found a better home to accommodate multiple couples and one family with 2 little boys. The fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom and 4 of the 5 had a deck were huge advantages. The great room was perfect for the whole group to be together but when you wanted some quiet time there was a place to go. The entire house is bright and airy - just what you want in a beach house. We enjoyed it so much we plan to return again next summer.

Great for Multiple Families Vactioning Together

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 5 couples plus 3 small children and it worked out beautifully. Each couple had their own room, tv and bathroom, which was so convenient. We didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The way the house is laid out gives everyone room to do their own thing, but also come together for meals and hanging out in the mornings and evenings. Everything in the house was clean and up to date. The kitchen and living room area had a fantastic view of the ocean, as did two of the bedrooms. Location-wise, the house was prefect for us. The grocery store, ice cream shop and restaurants are all within walking distance, but you're not right in the middle of all that hustle and bustle. We would definitely rent this house again.

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is spectacular! The set up is perfect for a large group. Plenty of space, and each bedroom has it's own bathroom, so there is a lot of privacy.

The bonus room is just that -- "a bonus"! The extra space is great.

This place has all the comforts of home-- pack n plays for little ones, beach toys galore, beach chairs, bikes (even for the little ones!!).

The views from all 6 decks are fantastic.

Walking distance to CVS and Acme.

We hope to stay again.

Wonderful long weekend with friends in your fantastic SIC home. Each bedroom with a bath rates a 10-star review.

Magnificent Home, Thoughtfully Appointed for Maximum Relaxation & Enjoyment!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the warm welcome into your home. We've rented many houses in Sea Isle City -- your home is, without question, the best! It isn't just the property itself, which is exquisite (location, location, location AND a bathroom in each bedroom!); it's the thought you put into the furnishings (plenty of cushy, comfortable seating and excellent beds), the calming decor and all the extras (too many to mention, but opening the garage and being greeted by so many goodies was such a treat). We loved the rounded corners on the walls -- reminded us of places we've stayed on the Amalfi Coast. We feel like we've found a perfect piece of heaven so close to home. We look forward to returning! Thanks again.

Sea Isle

There's so much to do in Sea Isle City. The huge recreation center has tennis and basketball courts, sports fields, a large playground and a skateboard park. Nearby is the Cape May County Zoo along with nearby bird watching. In town are miniature golf, numerous restaurants, shopping on the promenade, parasailing, boating, kayaks, and jet skis. Some of our beaches allow surfing and fishing is OK early in the morning. Bikes can be rented but we keep many in the garage for our renters' use. They can be used in town or on the promenade in the morning. A short drive to Ocean City provides a large boardwalk. Shoregate golf course is not far away. A new library overlooking the wetlands has just been completed. Of course there are great walks on the beach. If you prefer casinos, it's a short drive to Atlantic City. The beaches are clean and well maintained for all to enjoy.
