Grand Ole Rooftop Deck: The 4th floor rooftop deck gives you the opportunity to tune out the world and relax. The hot tub will melt away the worries and let the good times sink in. Panoramic views of the island and surrounding towns over the bridge twinkle at night. You can see Old Barney's Light blimp on the left, the bridge rails glow, and to the right the ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering lit Borgota that changes color every few minutes and daily change of patterns. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms. It's nice to have room to sit in comfort and have a cocktail while visiting on the deck when watching the fireworks and the little ones excitement! Plan your BBQ with friends and dine in the back yard with the 2 large tables and bench seating, and butcher block. If you bring your own bikes we have a bike rack, and the clothesline is out back also.

What to bring?: If you have bikes bring them, if it's too much to carry, rent down the street. If you like to fish, bring your gear, or just walk up to the bait shop and buy some new presents for your crew to remember your trip. We have some beach chairs and umbrellas for your use and also boogie boards and a skim board. The surf shop carries all these items also if you need more or want some other options. We have a toy box with sand toys, trucks, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. No matter what weather pack those bathing suits year round, the hot tub is on the rooftop deck 4 stories up and the views are amazingly soothing. A hot tub certainly takes the sting out of a cloudy rainy day for sure. The house has several movies rated from G to R for your watching pleasure, and a few games for a play station if you bring your set up. For those kids on the rainy days we have games, books,cards and puzzles to entertain them.

The LBI Experience: Here is some of the must do's if you can fit them in to your relaxing visit:Fishing on the Black Whale or out of Barnegat Light,Barnegat Lighthouse trek (214 steps!), Nardi's Tavern (great bands and pizza, free bus transportation to and from daily), Skipper Dipper Ice Cream, Surflight Theater,Showplace Ice Cream Parlor(they make yone person at the table sing for their ice cream),Fantasy Island Amusement Park, Howards Seafood Restaurant (great salmon dishes,and Lobster Bisque!),Bay Village Schooner's Wharf is a must for shopping, Country Crumb in Bay Village has delicious Elephant ear cookies and Choc. chip cookies to die for! Country Kettle Fudge should satisfy your sweet tooth, and Thundering Surf is fun for all ages with tubing down the lazy river, tubing shoots, a kiddie water playground, a huge mini golf on a 'mountain',and lots of food and drinks to keep you going. Take a bucket a net up to the Bayview park and let the little ones find all the creatures in the sea, this is fun!

The back part of the second floor and third floor is locked out for Owner who is a Year Round Tenant, with own entrance, and the far right 2 parking spots next to fence are reserved.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a great family vacation location. The beach is so close that even bathroom breaks are easy. The kitchen is fantastic and it allowed us to save a lot of money by eating in. The kitchen table will comfortably seat 12! The bedrooms are very comfortable and the view from the master bedroom (king sized bed) is beautiful.



We will return next year!

My husband Tom and I both grew up on LBI in the summers. We lived next door to each other until age 10. After 30 years we reconnected at age 40! We have raised 4 daughters here and were married on our beach. We married in 2006 bought my familys home and renovated so we could share LBI with others.

Mary Ann Gutchigian purchased this house in 1957

We purposely built the house to having several places to spread out in different living areas, or gather in one spot, indoors and outdoors. This helps with multi- generational families. We love introducing new visitors to the island and showing them the ropes. We also have a great connection with people who have been coming to LBI and our home year after year.

We also welcome groups for retreats. We have retreat groups in the months of Sept.-June. We are currently looking for more retreat leaders to fill some weekends with their offerings. If interested please contact me. We look for all kinds of groups: Ladies, Men’s, Artists, Holistic, Spiritual, Healthy Ways, Networking, Business, and more.

We opened the LBI GeoTrail Nov. 2013 ask me about Geocaching! The kids will love it, and it is a great thing to do on those cloudy days!

I do milestone event planning: birthdays, anniversaries, repass, christenings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, diner parties, brunches, continental breakfasts and more. If you are planning to have an event please let me know if you need my services. Many homes do not allow parties at their homes on LBI, but there is a need and we have had great success with entertaining for our visitors and have enjoyed their reunion type gatherings. We book for wedding stays and bachelorette weekends.

Having raised 4 daughters we have a great understanding of what parents wants and needs are while down on LBI. We suggest what going on for the kids as well as the adults and provide coupons, maps, and brochures for the areas offerings. Sunny days and raining days we have the answers on what to do. Please Don’t Hesitate to ask a question during a stay, and Welcome to “Beach House Retreats on LBI, NJ”.

BEAUTIFUL VACATION!!

  • 4 of 5
Overall, the house was absolutely beautiful. My friends and I had an amazing time. There were 14 of us and we had BBQs each night and really had a great time staying here. The rooftop was by far the best part of the house. The view is amazing. The house was clean and very organized.
Thank you so much Tom & Maryann for letting us be apart of your house.

GREAT RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
Spent LDW 2013 here and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The house, backyard and beach showed absolutely no signs of damage from Storm Sandy. You can't overstate the convenience of walking only 20 ft. to the beach everyday. The roofdeck and hot tub were a great place to relax as well after a long day on the beach. The house itself also was well kept, clean and had everything you could need. Highly recommend this rental for your beach vacation!

PERFECT LBI BEACH RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a long weekend bachelorette party in LBI with 14 other girls! We had a ball! The Beach House Retreats property couldn’t have been more perfect for our group. The house is 3 from the beach, with a great backyard, outdoor shower, and the most spectacular roof deck, including expansive views of the beach and ocean (not to mention a hot tub on the roof!). When we arrived, the property was clean and the owners were very friendly, catering to our requests in order to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The 5 bedrooms easily accommodated our large number of girls and the house was stocked with everything one might possibly need at the beach or a rental home- beach chairs, surf boards, boogie boards, kitchen wares, etc. I would definitely return!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
Very spacious house that is up to date and has everything that is needed. Great rooftop deck with hot tub that you can see Atlantic City from and great views of the ocean. 3rd house in from the beach so it was very convenient to go back to the house whenever needed. Walked down to Kubels Too for good food and to see a band (nice not to have to drive). Also walking distance (about 2 blocks) to Pinky's (seafood) and Joeys (Pizza).

We are located in a very family friendly area. There is plenty to do on foot without starting your car once you roll into to relax. For meals you have several options: Joey's Pizza (great to send the kids to for a slice or subs), Pinky's Shrimp( fishery for you to cook yourself, take out meals or eat at outside there, Pinzamino's Italian Restaurant (BYOB, Fancy), and Kubel's Too Tavern (fantastic Happy Hour 4-7 daily,cheap drinks and apps, nice menu altogether. When cooking in: Acme Market and Dune Produce Farms Market should have you covered. We are a guarded surfing beach and have 2 surf shops at the end of the block one gives lessons and carries most beach needs, candy, chairs etc, the other rents bikes and has roller blades, clothes and such. There are 2 ice cream shops in opposite directions, a gas station, and a pottery store with unique gift ideas. There is a 4 plex movie theater and a bait shop for the dormant fisherman. These 13 shops pretty much cover most ages needs.

My Husband Tom and I and 2 of 4 daughters live here in a lock out part of the home. LBI is such a wonderful place to raise a family, and have a small town life, with a fast paced summer to enjoy. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home and love of LBI to long time renters to LBI and showing Newbies to the Island the why it is such a hot spot year round now. Tom and I have grown up on the island in the summer months and moved down full time in 2006. We got married on our beach and it has been bliss ever since.

Come stay with us for your vacations, reunions, wedding stays, bachelorette weekends, and retreats. Book one of our retreats we offer or bring your retreat group with your goals in mind. Discounted pricing in the off season Sept.-May. We look for new retreat partners that want to expand their offerings by adding retreats to their business model, contact us for more info. Owners live on site and now offer wedding/milestone event planning and concierge services to vacationers, retreat groups, and wedding stays. We also have access to more homes on the block to keep your group together during your special events. We are members of the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, Long Beach Island Business Alliance, and the Jersey Shore Wedding Association. Our connections are your connections. Meeting your needs and making your stay even more enjoyable year round is our goal.
