About Susan & Harry Shaw

I have been coming to this house for the past 40 years as it was owned by my Aunt Dot. It was then passed down to my mother and we purchased it from her the year after Super Storm Sandy hit. We renovated the entire house and believe it to be beautiful and a perfect beach house.

Susan & Harry Shaw purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan & Harry Shaw chose Long Beach Island

It was our family's home and we have had many wonderful memories there. It is a beautiful area and I wanted to offer that to others to have a wonderful memory on their special vacation at our home.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location on the island. Just over the bridge and you are there!!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. It was located for easy access to both the bay and the ocean beaches. The home was clean and nicely decorated. The fenced yard had a large table under a canopy that was perfect for evening relaxing. The owner was friendly and helpful. The home had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time.

Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the serene atmosphere of this tastefully decorated beach home. It was perfect for our late summer girls getaway weekend. Ceiling fans throughout the home kept the breezes flowing. We cooked all our meals in the updated kitchen and were able to easily find everything we needed. Wonderful, spacious back yard. Plenty of room for parking. Nice touches throughout including fresh linens and a "welcome" bottle of wine. Easy walk to the beach or bay. So relaxing!

Simply delightful!

  • 5 of 5

That describes both this lovely house and its owner, Susan. The house is so cute with lots of sleeping options. Beautifully decorated. A few blocks to both beach and bay. I was greeted warmly by Susan who was lovely and hospitable. Would recommend this property without hesitation and hope to come again next summer.

Great location, sweet stay!

We love this place! Have been coming here for years. Newly remodeled this year we loved the open layout. There is always a nice breeze blowing through the windows. The location is the best, walking distance to everything; the beach, bay, stores, and the summer concerts!

Beautiful sunsets at the bay beach and beautiful sunrises at the ocean beach, both within walking distance . It's a quiet family atmosphere community where people can enjoy walking, biking, swimming, minature golf and eating ice cream!
