About Duane Watlington

My wife Kathy and I were born and raised right here in NJ and grew up vacationing 'down the shore' on Long Beach Island. We love Ship Bottom and hope you will enjoy staying in our home as much as we do! If you have any questions, please feel free to text or call us at 732-236-2185.

Duane Watlington purchased this house in 2013

Why Duane Watlington chose Long Beach Island

This property is a dream come true for my wife. We spent the first 8 summers of my children's lives vacationing in a house just a stone throw away from this location. Some day we dreamed of owning a little piece of this relaxing island paradise and in 2013 our dream came true! We like this area for its beautiful wide beaches, quiet family friendly neighborhood, and convenient, central location. Easy access on and off the Island is also a big plus and now we have the FREE LBI Shuttle...what else could you ask for?

What makes this house unique

Once you step out on to the roof top decks, you will see why we chose this house. Watch the sun come up out of the ocean or go down into the bay. Panoramic views from one of the highest roof top decks in Ship Bottom. Then, when its time to go inside, relax with all of the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. Our guests tell us the nicest feature/benefit we have is having a pool in a ocean block rental. You have the best of both words...just steps to the beach or steps to the pool. Spend your mornings on the beach, afternoons by the pool, cocktail hour on the roof top deck to see the sun go down! Then walk to your favorite restaurant, mini golf, or ice cream. Park the car and enjoy your beach vacation down the Jersey Shore!

The way to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Steps from the beach, a heated pool, your own picnic and lounge areas-and not just one, but several. I just can't say enough about how perfect this spot was for my family. While Ship Bottom is probably one of the more quieter spots in LBI, you can still hop in the car to get to Beach Haven in 15 min for some more local activity. Still, there are plenty of ice cream shops and mini golf that are in easy walking distance. The condo is split with another unit so you share the pool/picnic are- but that was never an issue for us. We were rarely in that area at the same time. Rooftop lounge area was my favorite for relaxing in the early morning with a book and my coffee or at sunset for the view. The place also had amenities for the beach which is thoughtful. Thanks so much for a great experience!

Great location and house, doesn't get any better than this

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would need for a relaxing vacation on LBI. Location to all store amenities and restaurants keeps you on the beach instead of driving around the island in traffic and the roof deck is spectacular! The pool is just right for the kids if they tire of the ocean and sun.

Shamrock by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay! We enjoyed the convenience to the beach and causeway. Duane and Kathy were very accommodating and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable! The elevator did stop working after a couple of days due to an emergency "automatic lock".. but it was the least of our worries! The place is clean, updated and charming. We loved the roof deck! Would absolutely recommend!

First family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation with our baby- we wanted a house that was walking distance to the beach and close to restaurants, Shamrock By The Sea delivered! Perfect location, immaculately kept, heated pool and a rooftop deck!
