Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 5 full baths, sleeps 12. Living-level hot tub overlooking the dunes

Long Beach Island Oceanfront. Stunning ocean views with four levels of decks (2100 sqft) including a roof deck; 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 zone central air conditioning, an oceanfront hot tub (on the main living level), and plenty of off-street parking (4 cars without double-parking). Three of the four upstairs bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. There is a hall bath for the bunk bedroom. The downstairs bedroom has an en suite bathroom. An outdoor shower off the dune deck provides a place to shower outdoors. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and flat screen TVs. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room.

Beach people will love being just steps from the beach and water. Don't like the beach? The decks provide both sun and shade with cooling breezes from the ocean without getting sand between your toes. The roof deck and upper deck provide plenty of room to enjoy the sun and the view. The lower deck off the living area has shaded and sunny areas. The large dune deck at ground level is shady all day long.

Inside, the large open living area provides both room for a large crowd to gather together as well as providing for separate areas to converse, play games, or read. The dining area provides plenty of room to gather for meals and you can still be part of the fun even while you are cooking in the open kitchen. A gas grill is available for use on the ground level.

The house is just steps from Pinky Shrimp's seafood market/restaurant, Joey's Pizza (best pizza on LBI), Kubels Two restaurant and package store. We are located about 1/2 mile north of the new, large Acme grocery store. Bike and surfboard rentals are within easy walking distance as is the nearest ice cream shop. The rental price includes the use of 10 beach badges and wireless internet.

To get a better sense of the layout of the house and the great views, please watch our video tour of the house at: http://www.youtube.com/embed/9O_HpUgJsK0?rel=0

This is a great house for a family getaway at the beach.

About Christopher Knell

Marlene and Chris grew up in South Jersey, went to Virginia Tech for our undergraduate degrees and received our masters degrees at Villanova and Drexel, respectively. We have been renting out various properties since 1982 and renting properties at the Jersey Shore since 2003. We presently live in Moorestown, NJ.

Why Christopher Knell chose Long Beach Island

We love this house because: 1) there is plenty of space in the large open living area to both be together and to have some separate space while still being close to the group activities, 2) the views! ... both while inside the house and outside on the decks, 3) the privacy and convenience of en suite bathrooms, 4) the setting is so peaceful ... we do our best sleeping and napping while staying at this house 5) the abundance of outdoor spaces ... both covered and open 6) the great views from the deck table, 7) eating meals on the deck table, 8) the short ride to the great, new Acme supermarket, 9) watching for shooting stars from the hot tub

What makes this house unique

All of the living spaces are designed so that it is comfortable and easy to gather as a large group (for instance for meals or happy hour), or to be in the same area but engaging in separate activities (for instance, playing games at the game table, reading in chairs by the window, and watching TV in the living room).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was by far the best trip we've had to LBI. We saw dolphins and a baby seal. The house was a perfect fit ... we had dinner outside, relaxed in the hot tub, and enjoyed the view from the crow's nest. Awesome memories!

Stunning views, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough wonderful things about this home and the homeowners. The house is beautiful, Chris and Marlene were wonderful to work with, and the views from the house are unreal. Pictures don't do them justice! We will definitely be coming back to vacation here for years to come and we will recommend this home to everyone looking to vacation on LBI.

Spacious beach house with gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

This home is very spacious with multiple decks and windows to take in all the gorgeous oceanfront views. Beach access is very convenient from the location. We have been renting for many years on LBI, in the Beach Haven area, and I would have to say this has been the best spot we have ever had. Along with the BEAUTIFUL beach and oceanfront views, the house also is convenient enough to stores, restaurants etc. Most are just a short drive away and some walkable. The owner provided good customer service and was a pleasure to deal with. Overall, a well equipped home for living and beaching.

Beautiful property with open floor plan

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Very well kept and very clean. We rented for a wedding weekend with 3 other couples and it was perfect. Each couple had their own bathroom so no sharing was necessary. We also found the beds to be quite comfortable. We did not expect to use the beach as it was early May, but it would be a perfect spot for summer as it's located right on the ocean. We also went out to eat for all meals so did not use the kitchen for anything but coffee and snacks. However, there seemed to be plenty of pots and dishes if needed. All condiments/sugar/paper products would have to be brought with you.

Exceptional in every way

  • 5 of 5

We visited LBI for Chowderfest weekend. Our first impression of the house was WOW! It is beautifully decorated, super clean and well stocked. Even with rain most of the weekend, the 12 of us found the house to be spacious and accommodating. There was room for group dinners, games and even our traditional vacation jigsaw puzzle (which we didn't finish although valiant effort was taken). The master suites overlooking the ocean provide breathtaking views. Chris was super friendly and easy to work with and gave us great, organized information for the use of the house and our exit. We would definitely go back again.

What a beautiful beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect setting for our family vacation. Plenty of room for our 3 adult children and babies. Despite Tropical storm Hermine, we had plenty of space and gorgeous views. We did find that September is quiet on LBI, which we didn't mind at all, but many of the restaurants are closed or have shorter hours.

Outstanding Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The home has been well maintained and pride of ownership is clearly demonstrated. The kitchen is fully stocked and the downstairs floorplan is wonderful, with several separate seating and conversation areas. The house is spacious, permitting guests to break off into small groups and yet will also accomodate a large gathering for games and such. The views are wonderful. Chris is professional and responsive. In 10 years of renting at LBI this is the fist time I've received my damage deposit back within a week.
