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 Long Beach Island

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

Great place

Loved the convenience to everything: walk to beach, bay and shops. Neat, clean and comfortable. Nice back yard for breakfast, cocktails and dinner. Tough to beat!

Great Surf City week!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was simply wonderful! The listing did not give the house and location justice, everything was so much better in person.

Great Location & Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults and 1 toddler spent a great week at Gayle & Scott's home in Surf City. The home exceeded my expectations and is more spacious then the photos portray. Very easy walk to the beach, crossing over just one main street and walking distance to a small market for necessities and other shops and restaurants. Plenty of parking and the outdoor space is excellent for relaxing, dining, storing beach supplies & bikes.

We cooked all of our meals and found the kitchen to be adequate. Do bring any "special" items you think you may need, we had to borrow a large pot from another family member's rental for "Sunday Gravy".

It was an extremely hot week and the house was always cool with ample air conditioning units!

Overall the accommodations were excellent and we would definitely rent this property again!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location... quick walk to beach, stores and a few restaurants! It is very nicely decorated! Owners thought of every utensil in the kitchen and left chairs and towels for our use. Backyard is beautiful! Just wish there was a sliding door or screen to open to let ocean breezes in!

Convenient spot

  • 5 of 5

We barely moved our car as everything was in walking distance. The house and backyard were very comfortable. The only "wish list" items might be a queen bed vs. the full size in one of the bedrooms and a ceiling fan in the living room. Other than that, it was easy to walk to the beach and the sunsets on the bay were terrific!
