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 Ship Bottom

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.

A Great Stay on Long Beach Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovey winter get away here on Long Beach Island. The home was perfect. It had everything we needed for our stay. It was new and very neat. We had several family members stay with us over New Years. They raved about the house. The house is water front on the bay, so we had beautiful views of the sunsets. Due to the latest blizzard, we had to stay an extra day. Mary, the owner, had no problem arranging that for us. She even walked over in the middle of the storm to give us some delicious home made soup.

We could tell that this would be a great place in the summer also. The home was equipped for everything you would need for the beach. No matter what time of year, this property is the perfect place to stay when visiting LBI.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jim. I'm glad you made it home safely after the snowstorm. I found your warm gloves, and will mail them this week. Mary

Beautiful views, attractively decorated and great location.

  • 5 of 5

The host Mary was incredibly accommodating and helpful. A natural people-person, and problem-solver, she is genuinely interested in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The house was modern and gorgeous - really, very well done. It truly felt like a home away from home as soon as you walked in. Good quality beds and windows (no noise!) made for good night's sleep. It was also extremely convenient having a bedroom on the first floor with a bathroom adjacent for an elderly parent.

Being right on the water allowed for all day play in the water. We spent hours kayaking and paddle boarding. It felt like being in the Carribean seeing all the boats ancored near by with its inhabitants enjoying the afternoon sun.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again.

Stunning Sunsets, newly renovated, immaculate home...

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this beautiful home I consider myself a very nice person but it when it comes to reviews I'm a bit selfish because I don't want to let the secret out there when a treasure like this house comes up to rent. Because of the fear it won't be available when we are able to take vacation over the summer LOL . But all kidding aside, the owner and the house deserve this review and everybody renting should know how wonderful this house is. Upon arriving Mary greeted us and went over all of the house with us. The house is in immaculate condition, it is so clean and so roomie. The location is stunning. We usually rent on the Oceanside and this was our first time on the bay, literally on the bay. The sunsets were so amazing and gorgeous as I could not get enough of that. We really lucked out with, each day was more perfect than the next . Our family is very fond of LBI as we have been renting for a few summers and before that coming with friends of ours. We cannot wait to come back and experience this house and location again for a full week. A super quick bike ride to the beach or even about an 11 minute walk to the beach was so easy. Maybe next time when the bay is not as rough from all the hurricanes out in the Atlantic, I will have enough courage to try paddle boarding . Thank you Mary for letting us rent your beautiful house and for being such a helpful, gracious and kind host and neighbor! Hope to see you soon!

Beautiful Bay front property !

  • 5 of 5

Home is spacious and in immaculate condition. Bay front with enclosed backyard and docks, the kids had a great time. Great kitchen and large island with seating. Owners were nearby and very accommodating. Great location in the middle of LBI with only a short walk to the beach. Look forward to staying here again!

Beautiful, Family-Friendly Home

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this beautiful house and property! My family rented this home for a one-week family vacation while also celebrating my father's 70th birthday. We had 6 adults and 3 children under the age of two (plus our dog!) and it accommodated each one of us and our individual needs. Mary is absolutely wonderful! She was so helpful in all regards...from showing us through the house upon our arrival to recommending nightly activities and tackle shops. She literally thought of every detail in both furnishing and stocking the home. Leaving the house with all of us was a chore most days, so it was so helpful to be able to enjoy all the perks of the shore without having to venture far, if at all. I cannot wait to go back again in years to come...highly recommend this property!
