About Mary & Ken

My husband and I live and work on LBI year round. Our children go to school here. We enjoy the water . We live nearby, so you can call if you need anything.

Mary & Ken purchased this house in 2012

Why Mary & Ken chose Long Beach Island

Hurricane Sandy forced us to re-build! The new construction is bigger and better than before. I look forward to meeting and becoming friends with our renters. Ship Bottom is perfect for walking or biking. You can play soccer or basketball at the nearby schools. There's tennis courts nearby. You don't have to drive anywhere. Just enjoy the location. There's restaurants, pubs, groceries, shops, mini-golf, ice cream, etc. within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

You can swim to a party, Walk to the Ocean, Skate to the park, Bike to the market. Or... You don't have to go anywhere. Just sit on the balcony or dock and breathe the salt air :) There is seasonal bus transportation on the island.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Beautiful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect spot to spend your vacation on the island. The views of the bay both during the day and at night are wonderful. The dock was perfect for bringing my jetski and is big enough to accommodate a bigger watercraft. My family and friends had a great time during our stay and are hoping to rent the house again. The owner Mary is very friendly and there for you if you need anything. The amenities included with the house is everything you could imagine needing for your stay. The owners really thought of and included everything when setting up this vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Ryan. That's a sweet review. I'm glad you'll be back to enjoy the house next summer. We built a new cedar dock and added a floating dock. It will be easier jumping on and off the JetSki! Mary

A beautiful house with a lovely view

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with my family at Mary and Ken's bayfront home. The house was everything we could have asked for and then some. Nice decks to enjoy the sunsets and kayaking off our personal dock was awesome. The house is stocked with everything you'll need and spotless. Mary was the ultimate hostess, even leant me her kayak so we could go out on the bay together one night. I will definitely be back, this is a great place to enjoy a relaxing LBI vacation.

Great sunsets - large kitchen - friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

First time renting on the bay. IMHO, this was better than beachfront. Great access to the bay. Had fun paddle boarding and kayaking. The sunsets were beautiful and there is a sandbar across the bay where a lot of people bring their boats and hang out all day. The top deck has amazing views. Lots of space in the house. Large kitchen.

Only two issues, the dishwasher was broken, but the owner offered to schedule someone to fix it. A deck chair broke, but owner quickly repaired it. The owner lives right next door.

The place is within walking distance of two breakfast places and the beach. However, if you have small children, you might need to drive instead.

Amazing Memorial Day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about this home! Upon checking in Mary the owner of the home, who lives nextdoor, greeted us and gave us the tour of the home. I was completely wowed! The house is gorgeous, spacious, and immaculately clean. When building this house you can tell they really pulled out all the stops... Beautiful kitchen and appliances, bedrooms that accommodate many for sleeping and all equipped with flat screen tvs, fireplace in the living room....Even heated floors in the master bedrooms bathroom! Lovely balconies with beautiful patio furniture.... Even a rooftop deck! The ground floor patio has lounge chairs, bbq and dock that faces out to the bay. Literally this home has everything you need- fully stocked kitchen, all you need is your groceries! It's a 2 block walk to the bay where we mainly stood during the day. They had a nice park there for the kids to play and you can lounge with your beach chairs, otherwise beach was close by as well! The town itself is beautiful wth lots to do and tons of places to eat. We absolutely loved it here and decided we would want to 100% make this an annual trip. I would definitely come back and stay and can not thank Mary and her husband Ken enough for sharing their lovely Home and being so kind to us!
