About the property

Tastefully decorated 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beach Home with Ocean Views

COMING NEW in 2017: More than $200 thousand dollars of home improvements including expanded living room, new front porch balcony with clear-glass translucent railings, new rooftop deck with gas grill and ocean views, re-configured second floor bathroom, re-designed kitchen, insulated soundproof flooring, split two zone heating and air-conditioning with Wi-Fi thermostats, renovated first floor full bathroom, re-graded property, driveway patio pavers AND MORE...

This Long Beach Island, NJ vacation rental in Ship Bottom is the third home from the beach; offering magnificent ocean views, and features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an outdoor shower, living room with 60 inch flat screen TV, fully equipped kitchen, high-definition cable, high speed internet, washer/dryer, off-street parking and central air conditioning and heating. It is located on a wide street with ample parking and is only 2 short walking blocks to the Barnegat Bay Watershed and nearby Marina. Swimming, sunbathing, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, jet-skiing and more are all just literally steps away, as is many of Ship Bottom's family day vacation conveniences, including two miniature golf courses, a small arcade, bakery (that boasts the world's best jelly doughnut), ice cream, candy, pizza, bagels, shops, cafes, restaurants and Dollar General store.

So, come and indulge yourself and your family this summer with a beach vacation to Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island (colloquially known as LBI). This narrow 18 mile barrier island off the New Jersey coastline boasts some of the most naturally beautiful beaches on the east coast, as well as hundreds of boutique shops and fine restaurants. It is approximately 30 miles north of Atlantic City. And, LBI operates a free shuttle bus service, seven days a week, from 10 am to 10 pm, servicing all 18 miles of the island.

Vacationers looking for a break from the sand or the surf can spend a day doing other fun things. Travel to the north end of the island and sight-see Barnegat Lighthouse State Park or shop Viking Village. In Beach Haven to the South, one can take their little ones to the Fantasy Island Amusement and Water Parks, experience the Black Pearl Pirate Excursion, or visit the Museum of NJ Maritime History.

In the evening, one can quietly wind down and relax on the outdoor balconies listening to the waves of the ocean crash against the surf, or enjoy many of the island's nightlife spots, including Joe Pop's (walking distance), Terrace Tavern and Nardi's Tavern & Grille.

This home features a master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds and a third bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds, comfortably sleeping 8. It is perfect for one large or two small families. This home was not flooded by Super Storm Sandy. Fully renovated in 2017! New furnishings in 2017!

Linens and towels are not provided.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to LBI and we are so happy we stayed in Ship Bottom. The house was the perfect size for our family of 6 and had everything we needed! The owner, Ron, was so responsive and made sure we had a fantastic and relaxing vacation! Looking forward to booking another trip next summer here! Absolutely breathtaking views and everything we wanted to do was in walking distance! Such a bonus!! Thank you for everything, Ron!

Quick response

  • 5 of 5

This property looks amazing and the location seems perfect. I requested to rent this property on 1/14/17 for the week of 6/17/17 and received confirmation within 2 hours. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances caused me to have to cancel my reservation. Ron's response time and understanding were amazing. My credit card was refunded immediately.

It is obvious Ron cares about his property and the people who rent from him. Hopefully, we will be able to stay at this rental in the future.

Thanks for your time and understanding Ron.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure dealing with the owners of this property!

The house was clean, comfortable and the location was perfect.

It was so convenient to walk or bike to local bakery, ice cream and mini golf.

Plenty of parking in front of the house. The ocean view from the kitchen was so nice.

The beach replenishment in front of this property is incredible.

There was plenty of beach space to enjoy. We would definitely

recommend this property and we would rent again!

Thank you!
