Fantastic views, quiet beach, easy drive to OC boardwalk

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at 1100 Atlantic Ave June 9-16. The best part was the location -- we couldn't imagine a better spot, with gorgeous sweeping views of the bay and only one block to the beach. The island is only one block wide at the end; it was so quiet and peaceful it almost felt like our private beach during the weekdays. I'd worried about noise from cars turning around at the point but it wasn't an issue at all. Longport is an easy drive to Margate (Lucy the elephant, restaurants), Ocean City (restaurants, boardwalk, rides), and Somers Point (restaurants). We loved being close to those towns but having the quiet of Longport.

As for the property itself, it pretty much has everything you could need. We actually ended up cooking/grilling at home most nights and enjoying our own view. The kitchen is very well stocked and we scheduled a Fresh Direct delivery for our first morning there so we were all set. The living space is nice and open upstairs. Bathrooms were fine, we loved the outdoor shower. Bedrooms were nice, the one upstairs is the best but the three downstairs are fine.

They also have lots of gear you can use - beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, standing paddleboards, tennis racquets, even helmets and a bike with an attached child's pedal.

One potential downside for people who want to swim is you'd need to walk a few blocks to get to a lifeguard; this wasn't a problem since our young kids only dip their toes. Those with really young kids should note there's a staircase right in the middle of the upstairs living room. A few other minor things could be improved: we would have loved blackout shades for the bunk-bed room for young children with naps and pre-sunset bedtimes. We also would have liked a sun umbrella for the downstairs table; we never ended up eating out there due to heat from direct sunlight.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and we'd definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Sally, Thank you for the great review! I really appreciate your kind words and I think your suggestions are really helpful. I just redid the downstairs deck and a sunbrella was on my list. I am going to get one this week. I hope we see you again next summer. Tom

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Thomas was extremely kind in accommodating an early checkin as my family was set to arrive to town around noon that day though checkin time is normally 4p....I imagine his ability to do this depends on whether the previous night was occupied but it was nice to get in early in either case. Layout of the house: the main living area, living room, big tv, kitchen are all upstairs along with one bedroom and one bathroom not attached to the bedroom. The downstairs consists of 3 bedrooms, including the master, with 2 bathrooms, one of which is attached to the master. There’s is a nice wrap around deck upstairs with chairs, you get nice views of the sunset over the bay. It’s a 1 block walk to the beach on a seldom trafficked road as the house is on the end of a Penninsula. The area is very peaceful, quiet, nice, very friendly people. The house was stocked with random assortments of snacks, condiments, spices, liquor, possibly things that accumulate as guests leave things they don’t use which was very convenient. The house also has all sorts of beach supplies, multiple surf boards, one paddle board, one small bicycle, tons of beach chairs and an outdoor shower. Overall it was just what I expected, a well-maintained, nice house close to the beach in a quiet, relaxing environment, great for a long weekend or weeks stay. No complaints whatsoever.

Wonderful stay at 1100 Atlantic Avenue

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay in Longport. It was a great choice for our family gathering. The property is well kept and in a great location with easy access to the ocean side beach and spectacular views of the bay. We enjoyed the sunsets in the evening. It's unique location at the tip of the peninsula adds considerable appeal. The property is in a quiet residential area which was perfect for us. When the grandchildren wanted to see the boardwalk, it was simply a short car ride away. The owner's art work adds a personal touch to the home. This was the first trip to the ocean for our youngest grandchild and a memorable trip for each of us.

Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

Most certainly, this home is located in the most perfect location with sweeping views of the water and only a block to the beach. It was the most perfect stay with everything a family needs. Beach chairs and a basket hoop made our stay so easy and enjoyable. The house itself is rich with beach charm, and warm happy energy. As someone who grew up every Summer in Longport, I can truly say that this rental is both beautiful and very special. The owner was amazing to work with, and I look forward to renting again next year. There is nothing I would change about anything, it's the best home ever.

Great home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 on a golf trip in late April.

The location was great to get to Atlantic City, Ocean city and local golf courses. The town had good restaurants and decent nightlife near by as well.

The house itself was in a quiet neighborhood right on a peninsula with a great beach and views. There was plenty of parking and easy to access via a code instead of needing to get keys.

The house was clean with plenty of room to hang out. We had no issue sleeping 10 comfortably and there were 3 bathrooms inside as well as an outside shower so plenty of room. The Kitchen was large and had everything we needed.

Tom was really good to work with before, during and after the trip as he was very responsive.

Completely recommend.
