About Daniel Gentile

Diana and I are a perfect match. Both of us grew up around the water and loving the outdoors. We met in 2000 and were married in 2009. We both love to travel and outdoor activities. Our favorite places are the country and the beach, especially Long Beach Island. It is only natural that one day we would have a place here. We love spending time with our 2 boys in the country and on the shoreline.

Daniel Gentile purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Daniel Gentile chose Ship Bottom

We have been visiting the NJ Shore and Long Beach Island since we were both kids. Living in NYC, it is easy for us to get here and enjoy the beach in about an hour's time. Every year we would rent a house, most of the time in Ship Bottom. Our family loves the beaches here in Ship Bottom more than anywhere else on Long Beach Island. We found this home in passing while looking for our rental for the summer of 2013. This house, like many others on Long Beach Island, was a victim of Hurricane Sandy. We are both very familiar with the area and were checking out rentals here. We had passed this lovely little house with the FOR SALE sign in front several times that day and never gave it a second thought until we decided to park and take a walk to the beach. We both immediately loved the house and were even more excited because it is located in such a fantastic area that we both love. We called the realtor and found out the house sustained minor damage and was in pretty good shape. An hour later we made an offer and the owner accepted. WOW! One of our dreams came true and we are actually homeowners on LBI! Since this home would be used for our own family, we decided to renovate the entire house to have everything fresh and new. 2014 is the first season that we will be enjoying our new home with our family.

What makes this cottage unique

This home really is close to everything. And by close, we mean less than a 1 minute walk. Want an egg sandwich or a few bagels in the morning? Walk up to the Boulevard, make a left and you'll be at Bageleddie's. Feel like sitting down for a nice lunch? Make a left out the front door and in no time you'll be seated with a menu in hand at Surf Taco (Formerly Captain John's). How about some ice cream? Go up to the Boulevard and make a right. Within minutes you'll have a fresh and frosty ice cream cone in your hands from Joey's (By the way... they have great pizza, too!) Want to satisfy that seafood craving? No problem. Go up to the Boulevard and to the left and in 30 seconds you'll be knee deep in lobster tails and clam chowder at Ship Bottom Shellfish. Want to rent a surf board or a bicycle? Just walk across the street to Surf Unlimited and you'll be biking around town or hitting the waves in no time. C'mon... how about the beach? Out your front door to the left 250 steps away! Want some nightlife? Joe Pop's Shore Bar to the right on the Boulevard. You'll be dancing the night away in 1 minute! Feel like doing a little shopping with the family? Take your pick... there's just too many places to list here. And when you want to relax with a nice cup of coffee, go up to the Boulevard and make a left to Shore Good Donuts. We're sure that you're going to love our home like we do. It really is the perfect size in a quiet location that's close to everything.

Awesome place!! Great week!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great find!!! We rented this adorable cottage the first week of September. The house was immaculate and newly renovated. Everything we needed was there, from blender, toaster, pots pans, iron, and even beach chairs. We only had to bring sheets and towels. I think my boyfriends favorite part of the cottage was the Apple tv!! It was awesome!! Also there were USB ports connected to the wall outlet (very useful). The washer and dryer was a defiantly a plus!!! The air conditioners were so quiet and so easy to use (remote controls) the temperature in the house was always perfect!! To get in and out of the house there was a key pad, so virtually keyless entry, no losing keys, brilliant!! We were so comfortable here.

The house is a very short walk to the beach. There are plenty of places close by to eat. One in particular we liked was ship bottom seafood. Next block over. There is a free shuttle bus that runs up and down the island, which can be very useful.

We had a week of perfect weather!!! We rented bikes, available at many locations, visited the lighthouse at the end of the island, went fishing, and spent lots of time at the beach. Everything was reletivly close.the cottage is in a great location!!! The only thing that was missing was an additional week we wish we could have stayed. I was sad to leave.

I would highly recommend this great little cottage!!! Danny and Diana, the owners, are such a pleasure!! They are very attentive, patient to answer all questions and make renting so easy! Many thanks!!
Christine and Massimo

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and the compliments. Diana and I are happy you had a great week and enjoyed the beach house. :) We're also happy that you found the free shuttle bus service on LBI. The free bus service is new in 2014 and we haven't mentioned it because we've never used the service. To use the bus service you stand on any corner on Long Beach Boulevard and hail the bus. The Long Beach Township website says the wait is 5 to 20 minutes and the route runs the entire length of the island.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
I had an awesome vacation staying at this lovely cottage! It was clean and modern and beautifully decorated down to the smallest detail, the owner thought of everything. I felt right at home the minute I walked in. The beds were extremely comfortable too. Just bring your clothes, bathing suit and set of sheets and you are good to go! It is situated in such a great location that I didn't even have to drive anywhere. I walked to everything almost everyday, talk about convenient and relaxing. Each day I grabbed my beach chair, umbrella, and bag and walked a block to the beach. It didn't matter what time of day. I went early and late and the weather was always perfect (unlike most of the tri-state area this summer). I even stayed on the beach until 6:30 a few days. The beach was spectacular, the sand was white, smooth, and clean. I did not step on one funky thing the whole time! I truly felt like I hopped on a plane and went away on vacation. On the way back from the beach it was always Happy Hour at Joe Pop's Tiki Bar, which I usually took advantage of...straight from the beach in my bathing suit lol. I also recommend seeing any bands that might be playing at night. I was lucky enough to catch "The NERDS" and "The Benjamin's" - talk about fun!! If you're looking for a great seafood dinner you must go to "Ships Bottom Shellfish" delicious, reasonable casual attire and literally around the corner, oh and don't forget BYOB most places. For Italian food I ate at DaVinci's, which is just across the street. I also had lunch one day a Surf Taco right across the street which was also very good. The only place I drove was to get ice cream and frozen yogurt along with a game if mini golf, which there are many to choose from. You can do as much or as little as you want. It was even great to stay in one night, do take-out, and enjoy a movie on the flat screen TV. I'm DEFINITELY coming back here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. The weather was perfect and we're sure the beach was fantastic. :) We're glad that you took advantage of the local dining and entertainment. DaVinci's restaurant is new this year and it's fantastic. Nothing but great reviews from everyone. Reservations are sometimes required but it's easy to pop in since it's located right across the street from the beach house.

We find that lots of visitors to LBI have their favorite ice cream, mini-golf and arcade places. Even Diana and I continue to visit the ice cream shop in Surf City that we first went to together when we were still dating. But for pure convenience you can't beat Joe's. It's about a minute walk from the beach house and they have great pizza and ice cream.

Beautiful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 5 year old daughter and I stayed at this fanstastic cottage last week and thoroughly enjoyed it! The house was spotless and the entire interior is brand new. The location was also perfect- just off the Causeway (no sitting in traffic to get there or leave), one block away from the beach and bay, within walking distance of restaurants, bars (including Joe Pops right across the street!), miniature golf, and a 5 min drive to the Mud City Crab House (an amazing seafood restaurant), shopping in Beach Haven and an amusement arcade - this cottage has it all! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a beatiful, clean, modern home to rent for vacation. We will definitely be booking it again next year!

Great cottage in great location w/ all mod-cons

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I spent a fantastic week at this newly renovated cottage in LBI. It's right off the causeway and had plenty of parking just outside each day. We loved the house- everything is completely new and modern, nicely decorated, and it has everything you need-air con, washer / dryer, brand new mattresses (no back ache!), dishwasher, cable, etc. The location was perfect- we were able to walk everywhere including to the beach one block away, the bay, restuarants, bars, miniature golf, and shops. Our daughter became a regular at Uncle Luigi's ice cream shop, ditto my husband at Joey's pizza. There is a great bagel shop and Joe Pops Bar right across the street. We had an amazing seafood dinner at Mud City Crab House - a 5 min drive away. We were really able to unwind this trip as the house had everything we needed and the location made life with a young child easy. We would highly recommend this rental to any small family/group who appreciate a beautifully appointed, modern beach house in a perfect location. We will definitely rent this cottage again - thanks Danny and Diana!

Owner's Response: Your very welcome. You're welcome at our house any time!

We're happy to hear that you didn't have a backache after sleeping on the mattresses. Diana and I put some thought into it and after some debate decided to purchase higher quality mattresses. We love them as well and now feel that the time invested worrying about mattresses was well spent. :)

Perfect Cottage! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with some family had the pleasure of staying in this beach cottage for a week in July. Everything was absolutely immaculate and perfect. The cottage was super clean and in pristine condition. Just about everything you need was already at the cottage when we arrived. It was one block down from the beach which was great. Plenty of restaurants, activities and shopping all really close by. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to spend some time in LBI. We will be back!!

We're glad that we did and we're happy that so many people enjoy it. Let us know when you'd like to come back. You're welcome any time. :)

Our first LBI stay

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our first visit to LBI - Ship Bottom was a great location! The beach was really clean and the area seemed very family friendly. The house was an easy walk to the beach, and the bay (with a great playground) a few minutes drive away. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It was just the right size for our family - 2 adults, 2 kids - and the ranch-style (i.e. no internal stairs) made it easy not to worry about our 19 month old getting into trouble. We loved the fresh bagels at Bageleddi's across the road, and our favorite take out was Picky Shrimp's. We look forward to going back to LBI again next year.
