Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 full 2 half Baths, outside shower (Sleeps 12-15)

Barnegat Light is one of the few places along the Jersey Shore left unspoiled, with expansive windswept dunes and scenic greenery against a sparkling Atlantic backdrop. Wide beaches, natural dunes and no storm damage. Barnegat Light is in great shape

The 3rd Floor main living Area showcases panoramic views of the ocean and dunes. This living area is open to the Gourmet Kitchen and adjacent dining area with walkout to the main deck. The main deck gives access to the rooftop deck for sunbathing or dining.

The back portion of the 3rd floor houses bedroom #1. The roomy Master Suite with King bed & vaulted ceiling has two small balconies and it's own private bath with a spa style shower.

The 2nd Floor has a comfortable open area, offering an additional large LCD TV and a selection of Disney movies & other VHS tapes & DVDs. Off of this open living area is the 2nd Master Bedroom with a private door to deck. The Queen size bed faces the ocean and a romantic bed & breakfast gas fireplace. This suite has it's own private bath (shower/tub).

Bedrooms 3 and 4 on the 2nd Floor may be set up as a suite, or separated for privacy by closing the french pocket doors. These rooms provide a quiet, private area 'away' for a young family with a baby or small children. There is one entrance to both of these bedrooms. There is a full bath connected to the inner (King) bedroom with a half bath accessable to the other bedroom.

The bathroom which is off the King bedroom has a shower/tub. The second bedroom, which can be used as the children's portion of this suite, has a full Twin day-bed and an additional full Twin that pulls out from under. This room includes a Crib convertible to toddler bed.

The First floor with it's high ceilings and open living space provides an area for quiet reading with its small library of books or a place to enjoy games. The sofa converts to a pull-out bed for extra guests.

Bedroom #5 on this level has a Queen bed with adjacent full bath, which it shares with Bedroom #6, which has bunk beds and a full twin stored underneath to sleep three.

On a side note: This house offers extensive sound-proofing between floors and interior walls which lends itself well to large or extended families. Please keep in mind this house is very versatile and could be set up as a private, sophisticated 4-bedroom Bed & Breakfast, (only you will have to cook your own breakfast). This should not be a problem with a gourmet kitchen...GE Monogram gas cook-top, double oven (with convection option), dishwasher and Jennair French 3-door refrigerator.

The Brazilian Tigerwood floors join together the kitchen/dining areas, and the Jennair 48' gas grill is just steps away on the oceanfront deck. If weather permits, the roof top deck presents a world class dining experience for up to 12,15 people Most importantly the overall design combines all of these features to give you a beautiful, user-friendly vacation home.

The house sits on one of the highest areas of Long Beach Island. From the rooftop deck you'll be stunned by the 360 degree views including Old Barney ~ our lighthouse, the inlet area, maritime forest, expansive ocean front views from horizon to horizon and all the way around to the bay area and commercial fishing fleet in the distance & sunsets in the western sky.

This Oceanfront Property is set well back from the waters edge overlooking a small maritime forest, to the dunes beyond ~ where a boardwalk path leads to the Beach and the sparkling water waiting for you.

Why Clay Howe chose Long Beach Island

Barnegat Light is a unique ocean front area with natural unobstructed dunes and open beaches. The homes are set back off the beach front which has allowed mother nature to create a natural maritime environment. The inlet and natural ocean currents combine to create a varied and rich environment for both land and sea creatures. In early season some of our beach area is roped off to protect nesting areas for endangered shore birds.

Our beach area is expansive and never crowded with lifeguard stands set ever 200 yards or so along the beach. No problem with high tide forcing people off the beach or trying to find a spot of sand to fit your family.

We have excellent surf fishing caused by the schools of small bait fish accumulating around the sand bars. The rock jetty by the inlet provides another excellent fishing location. The whole area is excellent for shell hunting. The ocean and wave conditions will vary as you walk along the ocean front area due to the jetty currents and sand bars. The swimming is safe and conditions closely watched by the BL life guards. We also have a township bay beach swimming area. If you have an extended family you will find an area that will fit all members from 4' shallow pools to crashing waves out beyond the sand bars.

What makes this house unique

We have three levels of living area which is not common to our area. We are at a high enough ground elevation to allow the three levels within the zoning parameters. The net result is we have more living space plus our roof top deck sets above most everything around us. The 360* views are unobstructed and beautiful. The house is very solidly constructed with additional structural support throughout . The house is very comfortable and stable even in the worst of mid-winter weather. Most folks find the house to be 'beautiful' ~ we hear it over and over again. We also usually get an 'Oh, WoW' when folks first step into the third floor and look out towards the ocean front.

The location is unique with the natural setting. Most folks that vacation here are looking for our unique natural location, along with the expected Jersey shore white sandy beaches and beautiful ocean.

Negatives [by owner]

We do not have an elevator .... We have three levels not wheelchair accessible. A person may spend a very comfortable and enjoyable week up on the third level [kitchen, dining, bathrooms, master bedroom, tv, and fantastic views from living room or deck area] but getting from ground level to third floor will require help for folks that are wheelchair restricted.

Distance to the beach..... The area is beautiful and open but you will have to walk a boarded path to the dune tops [2/3 minutes] and then down to the waters edge and guarded beach area. All according to which way you decide to go but another 3/4 minutes to the waters edge. We supply beach wagons and carts if needed to carry beach stuff or little people. The township will supply at no cost [contact and reserve preseason] beach wheel chairs which seem to work well for wheel chair restricted folks.

Gorgeous home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Barnegat Light; in previous years we have always stayed in Harvey Cedars. We vacationed the last week in June, and loved hearing and seeing the birds during the day and sounds of the sea at night. The house is nicely nestled among beautiful trees; its proximity and distance from LBI Boulevard coupled with being at the far tip of the island (less traffic to begin with), provided a nice sound barrier from traffic and loud humans. It was delightfully peaceful.

The reverse living layout of this house is ideal - this allowed views of the ocean from the third floor/main living area. The cross breeze was wonderful - truly lovely. The fourth floor open deck allows gorgeous, full views of the island.

The stairs in this home were easily maneuvered by all ages (from 7 to 76) in our party and were a complete non-issue, but we are active people. I was impressed with the soundproofing between floors - this added a nice level of privacy for everyone. Also the handy attached garage allowed storage of our bikes and our sand carving tools and forms.

The serene walk from the home to the beach is enjoyable and something I ended up looking forward to each time; the home provided several handy carts for coolers, my sand castle carving equipment and so forth. Your Fitbit will thank you.

Everything about the home was completely comfortable and accessible for us. We are in love with the Barnegat Light area and hope to be able to stay at this lovely home again.

A whirlwind wedding weekend

  • 3 of 5

This house is not as close to the lighthouse as I thought, or even have a view of the lighthouse. It is tucked between 3 other homes. If you have trouble with stairs, this home is not for you.

The home accommodated all of , us, and each bedroom had a bathroom. We were pleased we never ran out of hot water!

There is a long path leading to the beautiful beach with large waves. Fishermen were cast surfing. Due to the dunes and vegetation, you cannot see the people on the beach from the house.

Considering the price, the house is tired and needs updating. A few minor things need to be fixed or replaced.

A paradise that feels like you've flown a thousand miles to get there.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an absolute blast staying at this gem of a home in Barnaget Light. There was a sand bar off the coast that lit the Atlantic up in stunning shades of tropical blue that really made our view from the house feel out of this world (or out of New Jersey at the very least). We spent our mornings drinking coffee on the deck off the living room, grilling in the afternoons, and enjoying time with friends and family in the third floor living space - a space that was open format and a breeze to fit all 14 of us. If you're thinking of renting this great property, I'd give it two thumbs way up!

A great place to kick back and spend some quality time together.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the shore house in Barnegat Light. The accommodations were great. The views from the upper level was gorgeous and the sun rise and sun sets were breathtaking. We climbed to the top of the Barnegat lighthouse, spent time on the beach, flew kites, went on a sunset sail, and fishing excursion. The grandkids (teenagers) loved it. We also had bikes, went to the waterpark, and the girls found a few shops to buy souvenirs. If you don't want to spend all your time in the kitchen there are plenty of places to eat or get take out. If you want a treat, don't miss Poppy's ice cream shop.

A perfect place for a family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

Cousins, brothers and grown children came from California, North Carolina and Maine for a week of reminiscing, family banter and deciding where we go from here. Bluefish on the grill was a treat, the wide oceanfront beach oh-so-inviting, and the beach sculpture an unexpected delight! And, to top it off, the house could not have been more comfortable.

wonderful family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Three families gathered with our teenage children and parents. It was so special to be at this house. The views are unbelievable gorgeous. We could only hear the ocean and the birds. The top deck at sunrise and sunset is spectacular. The overall location at the dunes was incredible. We very much want to come back. The Howes are very gracious to share their beautiful home and very lovely to communicate with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
