BayFront with Hot Tub! – Surf City, Wonderful

Bay Views & Spectacular Sunsets!!

Surrounded by the water on 2 sides of the property. The lagoon on the side of the house allows easy shallow-water access for swimming, rafting, kayaking and just plain bare-footin in the water with the kids!

Enjoy a very relaxing vacation in our 4BR/3BA Beach house. (10) people Max occupancy.

• Guest Bedroom: (1) Queen

• Kids bedroom: 2 bunk beds (1 full + 3 single)

• 1st Floor Bedroom: (1) Single (perfect for Senior Citizen who doesn’t like steps)

Our house is a mix of the ‘old beach-style’ and the ‘new’…most of the house is modern, beachy, light and airy but then we have the nostalgic old-Beach-cottage knotty-pine walls in the first-floor Living Room with a fireplace and overlooking the Bay. There is also a 2nd Living Room upstairs with its own TV for added privacy, peace and relaxation.

Our house has all of the usual comforts of home. The house is always professionally cleaned prior to our tenant's arrival and has a fully equipped kitchen.


• 2 Large Living Rooms! One on the 1st floor + one on the 2nd floor.

• Hot Tub (overlooking the Bay).

• Hammock by the water.

Bayfront Decks have;

• Lounge chairs

This is one of the most reasonably-priced Bayfronts on the Island. Completely renovated in 2008 with all new furniture & appliances.

Relax!!! At the end of your day on the Beach you can… lounge on the Bay front decks & enjoy the cool breeze while watching the sailboats & beautiful colorful sunsets, or relax with a good book and a cool breeze in the Bay front Adirondack chairs, or relax in the Hot Tub while looking up at the stars or the lights reflecting off the water in the cool night sky. Cook in the outdoor BBQ gas grill or take a short 3-block car ride to the restaurants and ice-cream parlors nearby.

Kids will NOT need entertaining! They will find it themselves…They have… the Bay/lagoon surrounding the house for swimming and playing in their rafts or they can go to the Bay Beach on 16th St (with Life Guards). And while at the Ocean (also with Lifeguards), they can go beach-combing, shell collecting, building sand castles, exploring, body surfing. They can go crabbing at the Bay on 24th Street (August only). Or drive them to miniature golfing, ice cream parlors, the Beach Haven amusement park with water slides. Or rent bicycles, a Kayak, a crabbing boat, jet ski’s…you name it.

The beauty of the North End of Surf City is not just the nice architecture (mix of old charming cottages with big expansive new architecture) which makes for wonderful romantic strolls with the family, but also that there is so much within walking distance. This part of the Island is the shortest walking distance from the Bay to the Ocean (just 3 short blocks) and only two slow 2-lane roads to cross for safe access.

Surf City is a peaceful, family-oriented town and the North end is a very convenient location. It is a short 3-minute drive to the Bay Bathing Beach for the kids (on 16th Street…see photo), to the nearby pizzeria's, ice-cream parlors, restaurants, gift shops, seafood store, corner meat market, corner family mini-grocery or a 10 minute drive to the Surf City Hotel & Restaurant, Lobster Claw Restaurant, Jason's Pancake House, Scojo's Sub Shop, How You Brewin Coffee Shop, Ocean Bay Super Market, Woodie's Burgers, Walter's Bicycle Rentals, Flamingo Mini Golf and many other activities.

About Don

Our family is 5th-generation that was born and raised in New Jersey. My Uncles and Grandfather were very hard-working business men and the word that comes to mind when I think of their legacy is... 'very respectful' businessmen... and hence very well respected. Those are the values handed down to us. So treating others the way we would want to be treated plays a large role towards our goal of satisfied customers.

Why Don chose Surf City

My family has been coming to Long Beach Island going back 4 generations when my great grandfather would take my grandfather, a young boy, on the train from Philadelphia down to the Island. I understand it was a very low, simple bridge that carried the train to the Island at that time. We have vacationed in Surf City all of those generations and we absolutely LOVE it here! It is truly a very family-oriented peaceful ocean-side community.

What makes this house unique

There are many unique benefits of Surf City as a town. But one important benefit that I want to point out with regards to the location of this house is this. If you have children, please keep this benefit in mind: Where this house is located in Surf City, there is only one lane of traffic, per direction on the main drag. So it makes it safe, peaceful and convenient to cross to get to the Ocean. Any further North and the road increases to 4 lanes of traffic (for both directions) and at a higher speed limit. The same holds true for most of the towns South of Surf City.

Additionally, since we are in the 'desirable' and much 'sought-after' North end of Surf City, the house is walking distance to restaurants, mom-and-pop small grocer, meat market, seafood market, gift shops and ice cream parlors. We believe you will Love the location of this house!

Awesome relaxing vacation - this is the place to rent

  • 5 of 5

This is the house to stay in for a nice relaxing vacation. The house is very spacious, very clean, nice and homey. There is room for everyone. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. The amount of time that was taken for the instructions with renting and guide to answer any questions is impressive. I would 100% rent this house again.

It is a beautiful view sitting on the deck watching the sun set on the bay then in the morning you can go down the street to watch the sun rise on the ocean. There is a lot of places to go to even in the fall. Remember the shore isn’t just for summer – it is beautiful all year round. I highly recommend renting this house you will not be disappointed!!!

An outstanding (10+) vacation home on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot to enjoy waterfront property and spectacular sunsets. It is a clean and spacious home equipped with everything you could possibly need. We have spent a week here for the past three years and plan on going back next year as well. We bring our own sheets and towels, but you can also rent them from a company right on LBI. The hot tub on one of the two conjoined decks is a real plus to enjoy in the evenings. The owner is not only friendly but responds immediately to any questions or concerns. You won't be disappointed when you choose this nicely decorated, cozy home....but, please don't take our week!! 😉?� NN N Nancy F.

wonderful !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation ! The house is right on the bay and we enjoyed the sound of the water and the sunsets . The location was perfect. My personal favorite was rocking my granddaughter to sleep on the wicker rocker on the porch. Beautiful breeze all the time. All accomodations were there and did not have to leave the house for anything unless you wanted to. Perfect house for a family vacation.

Surf City vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this location. This year we stayed two weeks because of the great time we had last year. Once again we were not disappointed. The location is perfect right on the bay for wonderful sunsets and easy access to the water and having the beach so close by. Lots of small quaint stores within walking distance. The house has an easy flow for a relaxing time. Don the owner has always made sure that everything is in working order and is available for any questions or concerns. Great vacation spot

Excellent property. Great Location. Well-maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting on LBI since 1962 and this is our sixth consecutive year at this property. And we will definitely be back again next year! The location -- on a quite dead-end street and right on the bay -- is terrific for kids and adults. There is lots of space for sleeping and for living and the property is well-maintained. And the sunsets are spectacular!
