Who says you can’t have it all? Ocean block (3rd from the beach), in-ground heated pool (2015), elevator, modern living!

FRONT AND BACK DUPLEX – This listing is for the front unit (A) of a reverse living, contemporary style duplex that was built in 2007. This house survived superstorm sandy with no damage, and is now back on the rental market with many great weeks available. All of the furniture inside was replaced in 2014 as well as all new rooftop decks! For 2015 we are installing a gas pool heater and two enclosed outside showers! It looks as good in person as it does in these pictures! Available weekly with a Saturday changeover. Price includes a changeover cleaning.

We are the third house from the beach, with Ocean Views, and consists of three stories. The ground floor has inside parking for two cars as well as a dedicated stackable washer and dryer. Two additional cars can be parked outside, in front of the garage. Up to the second floor where you will find three bedrooms and two baths with beds to sleep 7 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a gas fireplace and its own bathroom with an extra-large shower that has two shower heads and an extra-large vanity/mirror with two sinks. ALL of the bedrooms contain high end Sealy Posturepedic mattresses with plenty of pillows for a restful sleep after a long day on the beach. Up the stairs to the third floor where you enter the living room with a gas fireplace and 50” Samsung SMART LED TV. Past the living room is the dining area with lots of windows and ocean views. The Kitchen is a modern kitchen with wood cabinets and granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, range, dishwasher and microwave. It is well stocked with all you the equipment and utensils you need to cook and dine in. Want to take in the fresh air? Two sliding glass doors open up to a balcony with more ocean and beach views.

YOU CAN NOT FIND A BETTER RENTAL VALUE IN SHIP BOTTOM!

To rinse off the salt and the sand from the beach, there are two outdoor showers, one in the back yard near the pool and one on the east side, both shared. In addition, we will have two enclosed outside showers on the west side of the house for 2015!

Need an elevator? This unit has that too and its available on request for an additional $200/week charge.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! – If you are going to vacation “down the shore” you have to stay near the beach! This house is just 43 steps from driveway to beach walkway. Stay Ocean block and walk to the beach without crossing any roads. In addition to being close to the beach, this house is close to the causeway so you don’t have to wait in “Island Traffic” when you want to come or go from LBI. Major chain store shopping, including Shop Right, Wal Mart, BJ’s, Costco, Kohls, and MANY others are just 10 minutes away (on mainland). Want to stay local? No problem!

About Duane Watlington

My wife Kathy and I were born and raised right here in NJ and grew up vacationing 'down the shore' on Long Beach Island. We love Ship Bottom and hope you will enjoy staying in our home as much as we do!

Duane Watlington purchased this house in 2013

Why Duane Watlington chose Ship Bottom

This property is a dream come true for my wife. We spent the first 8 summers of my children's lives vacationing in a house just a stone throw away from this location. Some day we dreamed of owning a little piece of this relaxing island paradise and in 2013 our dream came true! We like this area for its beautiful wide beaches, quiet family friendly neighborhood, and convenient, central location. Easy access on and off the Island is also a big plus and now we have the FREE LBI Shuttle...what else could you ask for?

What makes this house unique

Once you step out on to the roof top decks, you will see why we chose this house. Watch the sun come up out of the ocean or go down into the bay. Panoramic views from one of the highest roof top decks in Ship Bottom. Then, when its time to go inside, relax with all of the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. Our guests tell us the nicest feature/benefit we have is having a pool in a ocean block rental. You have the best of both words...just steps to the beach or steps to the pool. Spend your mornings on the beach, afternoons by the pool, cocktail hour on the roof top deck to see the sun go down! Then walk to your favorite restaurant, mini golf, or ice cream. Park the car and enjoy your beach vacation down the jersey Shore!

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 3 1/2 year old and other family stayed in this awesome house after Labor Day, Sept 6-13. The house was immaculate, well-appointed, and beautifully furnished/decorated. We loved having our morning coffee and late afternoon drinks on the spectacular roofdeck! The location of this house is so ideal - steps to the beach, and within a block or 2 of restaurants, CVS, mini golf....so convenient! The owners are very responsive and available for any questions that came up during our stay, and obviously take a lot of pride in their home. We are so happy we chose this location for our end of summer vacation. It was the most comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable trip we have taken in a long time, and we expect to be back again next summer! P.S. if you are vacationing wirh older and/or disabled folks, this house is perfect because one unit has an elevator that was so ideal, and the pool is a great place to relax if they can't make it to the beach.

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this home so much! It was very nice to have drinks on the rooftop deck! The owners have thought of everything you'd need for a great week. Great beach chairs & umbrella included. All bedrooms very nice size and huge master bathroom. Kitchen was great but we ate out due to close proximity to restaurants. Definitely a great home!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5
We stayed June 28-July 5 and can honestly say we had the best time ever. Everything that was described was 100% and then some. Watching Fourth of July fireworks from the rooftop deck was simply awesome. In a great location as well. All the excitement you need within steps to minutes. Thanks again Duane.
