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

A Winner right out of the box
I decided to take our whole family (Wife, Son and wife, Daughter and husband, and 3 Grandchildren) for a week at the beach. Wound up with only 8, 5 adults and one 16 year-old, one 11 year old and one not quite a year old. We had never done something like this before, and we chose to make LBI our port of call in this instance. At first arrival, the gang was enthused by the location, the interior furnishings, the roominess, and the general ambience of it all. To the relief of this Grandad, everyone was satisfied with everything. Generally, when we go away, mostly to fishing spots in Canada, their is always something, that we wish would be there. In this case, nothing was Not missing. My wife's mantra was, "I can't believe this or that is here". A great Living Room/ Dining Room that was the focal point of everything inside. Note - 8 can sit at the Dining room table and not be crowded. 6 plus a baby can lounge and watch TV. 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 nice bathrooms, and a laundry room. Also a spacious back yard and the ability to spread out. Played cornhole in back with tables and chairs to sit and eat. A grill that worked, a hammock that the kids liked. All this and being only a block to Pizza, Pastries, and a Butcher Shop, while the house is on a quiet street. At the end of the week, still no complaints. Thanks, Gayle and Scott, hope to see you next year.
We're so happy you had a great holiday!!! That is our goal!! Thank you for your lovely review!! The location of the home is ideal for walking to things you want and we try hard to make our guests comfortable and not have them running out for little things, so you have time to just enjoy, as your quality time with your family is precious! It would be great to have you as our guests again next year! You were delightful guests!! If you do decide to come back, try to book early as we were pretty well booked within 6 months of the summer.
Warm Wishes for a FUN rest of your summer!!!

Very nice home with a big backyard
Great location to both ocean and bay.
Perfect spot in Surf City!
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 :)
Thank you so much for your glowing review! You covered so many areas. We try hard to think of everything that our guests would appreciate. So happy your stay was a great experience and you come again!!!

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.
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!!

Great Location, Great Owners, Great House!
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!
