About the property

Newly renovated I, 4 bedroom, 2 full baths, north Surf City close to beach

Best Location to be in Surf City –“ PLAY MORE, DRIVE LESS” East one block you can see the dunes and entrance to the beautiful beach from the living room window and west one block you are at the end of the street standing at the bay. Perfect for boats, kayaks, paddle boards, canoes and anything else that floats! Your “Beach House” is an expanded Cape, which has just been refurbished in 2015, not because of Sandy, which didn’t touch it, but because we want our guests to have a great place to spend their vacation. All new kitchen and 2 baths, all new beds, 3 Queen bedrooms and one bedroom with twin beds.linens can be provided for an additional cost, brand new 55” Samsung Smart TV, games to play and books to read, my favorite, the padded hammock in back yard, separate laundry room. These are but a few of the things we have put together for your pleasure. We want you to have FUN, comfort and relaxation. DE stress!!! Enjoy the deck and grill out back with friends and family, or just rest with the warmth of the sun either on the deck or the beach and feel totally at peace with the world. You have our permission to turn your cell off for as long as you want!

About Gale/Scott Wayman

This home has been in our family since 1979 and it has been enjoyed only by the family except for the first few years of ownership when we did share it. We are again ready to share it with you and have worked hard to prepare it to make your vacation relaxing and fun!

Gale/Scott Wayman purchased this house in 1979

Why Gale/Scott Wayman chose Surf City

Location, Location, Location oversized lot in North Surf City renovated in 2015 with open floor plan and large bedrooms, three with Queen sized beds and one with two twins. Towels for house and beach provided, as well as beach badges for 4, seniors and children under 12 are free.

Beach chairs and umbrella also provided.

What makes this house unique

Everything within a short walk, beach, bay, stores, food, miniature golf, a spa, restaurants and much more. Heading north is historic Barnegat Light Park and a lovely walkway along Barnegat Inlet where the fishing boats and if you would like to join them, 'Day Fishing Boats' go out along with the private motor and sail boats. This is a perfect spot for taking pictures. There is also a small museum in Barnegat Light, and quaint little places to eat and shop. From North Beach up, the island is more rustic, with beautiful beach and bay homes that are breathtaking to see. Going south, my favorite place is Beach Haven which is also historic and has a museum, Surf Light Play House, which is reopening summer of 2017, concerts on the town green, wonderful restaurants, eating outside on the beach is my favorite in the summer at the Sea Shell Restaurant. There is also an amusement and water park that is a favorite with the younger ones. At the very southern end of the island is a Wild Life Bird Sanctuary that is wild and leads to the Beach Haven inlet. If you like Atlantic City, you can see it if you look south (right) going over the causeway. I find that amazing! HAVE FUN! Gale & Scott Wayman

Perfect spot in Surf City!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week this August 2017. The house was perfect! The location to the beach is great. It was in walking distance to all the great stores in Surf City. There is a bakery right around the corner and we were so lucky to be near Panzones and Okies. It's the best to walk off the beach at lunch time, stop in Okies, eat sandwiches in the house and head right back to the beach.

We loved the backyard with the beautiful flowers and butterflies. The outside shower was so refreshing with the open roof. So much was provided unlike other beach rentals. There was a large cooler and hammock in the yard for families. Also, beach chairs, badges and towels were all included.

The inside of the house was so clean and spacious! It was nice to be able to put away suitcases in the empty closets. We loved having the huge laundry room for storing things.

All the bedrooms are very large. We cannot say a bad thing about this house. The owners really take pride in their home and thought of everything a weekly renter would need. The kitchen had everything we needed and all the utensils were clean unlike some rentals we stayed in the past.

Thank you for making our stay awesome! I hope you have the week we need open for next summer :)

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We selected this house for its location in Surf City.....very short walk to the beach, stores, food (Panzones for the kids, Boulevard Clams for us), ice cream, etc. In fact, we only had to use the car for water park/fantasy island. Based on the pictures, we expected a small home that would be a little tight for the 5 of us. I know others have said it, but the pictures really don't do the home justice. The two upstairs bedrooms are very big and the family room comfortably seated 7 people when we had guests. It even has a large laundry room!

We have stayed in several houses on the island, and this is the best of the bunch.

Owner's Response: Dear Jay, Thank you for your review of our home, it is a good size at about 1700 sq. feet, but my cell phone pictures don't due it justice. We have always been very happy with the location as you can walk to so many things and the size of the home is good even when we have guests. Hope you come back next year!! Warm Regards, Gale and Scott

Great Location, Great Owners, Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Gale and Scott's Surf City beach home and had a great time. The house is in the perfect location in Surf City (about 2 blocks from North Beach). The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes (cross the boulevard and about 6 houses to the beach). The house was walking distance from restaurants, ice cream and coffee shops. The house itself was spacious (the pictures do not portray how much room there actually is in the house), clean and the amenities were great. The backyard was spacious, plenty of space to grill and enjoy the great LBI breeze at night. My wife and I stayed with our 2 young toddlers and had various family members stay over as well. There was plenty of room for everyone.

Gale and Scott were very responsive and left very detailed instructions. They were also reachable if needed.

We look forward to staying again next year!
