About William Bowman

We live in South Carolina and in the off season, of course we spend time in Surf City. Jill and I are both retired and actually spend a fair amount of time making improvements to the house. We hope you'll come to Long Beach Island and enjoy the fabulous Jersey Shore.

William Bowman purchased this house in 1995

Why William Bowman chose Long Beach Island

We had vacationed on Long Beach Island (LBI) for many years. Long Beach Island is known as The Hamptons of NJ. The island has 12 towns over its 18 miles, each with it's own personality. Beach Haven to the south has many night spots and carnival rides, while Barnegat Light on the north end is home to the islands commercial fishing fleet. Ideally suited right in the middle is Surf City. Lots of shops, restaurants, etc to walk to by day, but peaceful quiet at night.

Fantastic Home - Beautiful, Clean, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further! Will & Jill have meticulously maintained their beautiful Surf City home and we had a terrific 2 weeks there. Gorgeous views, fantastic location, and a clean, well-equipped home. We have been renting in Surf City for 8 years and have found our favorite spot. Great location near all the shops, restaurants, and my kids favorite ice cream (Big Dipper!), even the bike rental place is down the block. The owners are lovely and so organized, renting from them was a breeze. There were even "boogie boards" in the storage room for my kids. I already miss my morning coffee on the deck looking at the ocean - doesn't get better then that!

Amazing unobstructed views from this stunning oceanfront property! The house has been meticulously maintained by longtime owners Will and Jill Bowman who are exceptionally attentive to every detail. Immaculately clean and very well stocked with every imaginable amenity. The best part for us was the elevator which made this very special last trip to the beach possible for my 87 year old mom. LBI is proud of their handicapped accessibility and provides Beach Wheel Chairs at no cost, just call the local Boro Hall to reserve. We had been going to Nags Head every year until the 12 hour trip finally took its toll. Long Beach Island is an wonderful hidden gem with all the amazing views of the Outer Banks in a short 2-5 hour drive from either the NY suburbs or Boston, respectively. Great food within walking distance and just love the 5 and Dime store! Just a beautiful, special place that we cannot wait to come back to!

Ocean Front House 2-Ocean front master suites w/elevator #242537

  • 5 of 5

What an AMAZING house! We have been renting on LBI for over 20 years and we finally found the PERFECT house for our family. This house is walking distance to ice cream, restaurants, market, gift shops and the kid's bayside beach. Once you park your car there is no reason to move it.We enjoyed watching the sunrise each day from the front deck and watching the sunset, over the bay, from the rooftop deck. What a view from the rooftop deck! The house was very clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The layout of the kitchen/dining/living room being open gave us so much space to be together. The kitchen was fully equipped. Working with the owners was a pleasure. We are hoping to return next year!
