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.
