7 Huge Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Elevator, Roof Deck, Sleeps 22

Location, location, location!! This 6500 SF luxury Mediterranean-style beach mansion is located in the heart of the prestigious 'A-zone' of Brigantine and is literally a few steps from the pristine brigantine beach. Located on a double lot just 3 homes from the ocean, this huge mansion boasts direct, unobstructed ocean views.

The mansion sleeps up to 22 people comfortably with it's 7 over-sized bedrooms and 5.5 luxury baths. It's the perfect home for larger family gatherings, special celebrations or corporate retreats.

The 1st floor main living area includes the grand entrance hall with it's custom circular stairway which leads the whole way to the 3rd floor. The 2 story great room boasts a stunning gas fireplace and huge flat screen tv as well as a fabulous adjacent bar. The gourmet kitchen will delight any chef with its complete suite of Viking professional appliances and granite counter tops. The dining room is designed to seat up to 22 people so your entire group can eat together. You can escape to the living room if you need some quiet time or check out the tv/theatre room to watch a movie or play video games. The first floor also includes a powder room, laundry room and 2 car garage. You also have direct access to the new in-ground pool and gorgeous Travertina patio.

Step into the elevator or ascend the grand staircase and 5 luxurious bedrooms and 4 fabulous tiled bathrooms will greet you on the 2nd floor. Everything is in grand scale. Most bedrooms have king sized beds and walk in closets with custom shelving to make move in and move out a breeze. Most bedrooms have access to the many balconies surrounding the house. Delight in the rejuvenating ocean views as you begin each new day.

Enjoy stunning ocean vistas and soak in the ocean breezes as you lounge or sun bathe on the roof deck.

Brigantine offers the best of all worlds. It is a very family friendly, small town atmosphere, with small shops, parks and restaurants but is located just across the bridge from all the glitz, glamour and excitement of Atlantic City. This perfect location combined with this magnificent luxury home offers my guests an unforgettable experience and lifelong cherished memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your home. Your attention to detail in every way was greatly appreciated and can not be underestimated in terms of the effect it has on your renter's vacation experience.

There were 17 in our family group, 8 adults and 9 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 18. Your home easily accommodated the 17 sleepers. Everyone found something that held their interest be it the swimming pool, the putting green or the availability of a TV for watching something that few, if any, had an interest in watching. Grandma (Nancy) cooks all lunches and dinners for everyone for the week, and your very complete kitchen facilities and equipment drew her praise. The two tables in the dining room and living room easily handled all of us at mealtime.

The putting green was a very big favorite for young and old with many putting contests being held throughout the week. The putters you provided were perfect because they could be used by a righty or a lefty, again great attention to detail.

The house's location is a very big plus because it takes crossing Ocean Avenue out of the equation when the kids are going to or from the beach.

We look forward to returning next year!

We used the pool, which was super clean too! And the beach was only steps away!! I would highly recommend this home! The owner was incredible to work with too!!! We really enjoyed staying here!

First of all, THANK YOU BRIAN, for allowing us to rent your beautiful mansion for the weekend of Sept. 9-11, 2016, and for being so easy to work with all the way through the rental process. You were always very responsive to any questions and we could truly feel that you wanted us to be very comfortable in your Mediterranean mansion. Speaking about being comfortable, we were 20 of us and your place was spacious enough for all yet cozy enough to be all together in the great room/kitchen area. We were all able to eat together in the dining room which was wonderful! Your house is spectacular and I could see the attention to detail in every room. The beds and pillows were phenomenal!!! The views from the decks were amazing. Our family enjoyed the pool and the pool area as well as the putting green. In addition, we also made it to the beach which was very close and even managed to get a family picture. We made some very special memories over the weekend and I am so very glad we rented with you. I would highly recommend this Mediterranean Mansion and my family is already asking if we can do it again!

Fun in the Sun (and pool, and AC...) for 22 of us!

  • 5 of 5

I'd say my family of 22 (ages 1 to 84) all agree that Brian's Mediterranean Mansion is worth returning to! And that says a LOT!!! This is our second year renting from Brian, and in between those Brigantine beach trips we've rented elsewhere, with less than stellar service. So I am super appreciative of his attention to detail (evident both throughout the home and in all of the communications up to and during our trip) and his timely responses to questions. What a pleasure to work with. (I sort of dread renting from anyone else at this point!) It's neat to see someone care SO much!

The house itself makes traveling easy, with plush beach towels and quality linens provided. I loved not having to pack up beach chairs, etc, knowing the house was well stocked with what we would need, including a beach cart! The kitchen is so well organized and we never ran out of dishes, even with 22 people for a few days! Really all you need to pack is some food and swimsuits!

As our family's vacation organizer, I want to be sure everyone is comfortable and has what they need. Because the house is so big, there are nooks for those who want a quiet spot, plus ample space for us all to share a meal, play games, or just visit. Even the sofa beds are comfortable! As are the cots! We maxed the place out! My Aunt appreciated the elevator, as she has trouble with stairs. (The elevator opens up to bedrooms, so just warn those folks!). Enjoyed the music system, too. And even the golf hole!

We all loved the pool, which I had heated in mid-July, thanks to Brian's advice. I wouldn't have thought to do that, but I know everyone swam way more than they would've if the water hadn't been so warm. And the walk to the beach is a breeze!

When tiny issues arose (finicky door knob, temperamental lights), Brian immediately worked on resolving the problem. He is so kind, my relatives wanted to invite him to dinner!

This place is the complete package. You will not regret renting from Brian. (We've appreciated both of his larger houses!). We are so thankful and look forward to returning!

Great Vacation Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying here and it was wonderful! We had 22 family members (half adults and half kids) and it was wonderful to find a house that fit us all. When we wanted to, we could all hang out together, but the teens loved hanging out together on one of the upper balcony’s or on the 3rd floor and the younger girls loved finally having a room to themselves (the room with two beds on the 3rd floor is perfect for a group of girls!). All of our needs were taken care of – beach towels, bath towels, beach chairs – it was wonderful not to have to bring all of that! We all also enjoyed the pool; we really enjoyed swimming in the evening without going to the beach again. The owner, Brian, was also very helpful and quick to respond to any question that we had during our stay. The house was very well maintained and had all of the necessities and then some. We highly recommend the house; it is a great place for a large group to spend quality time together!

An amazing home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here as part of a group of 22 so we had a full house, thankfully there was enough room for everyone and it was easy to plan with the owner's breakdown of the house. The home itself was a delight and the owner, whom I spoke to multiple times, provided all the details you could want on the house. Everything was labeled, from lighting, to closets, and there was even a floor plan with the location of everything and how many people/beds would be in each room. The mansion definitely lived up to expectations and had everything we wanted, a grill w/propane, cooking utensils, towels, sheets, etc.

The mansion is just stunning, and you can tell a lot of effort is put into keeping it maintained. It has many great features, probably more than we even needed. The multiple refrigerators definitely came in handy and again, even with 22 people we were quite comfortable. There are even Sonos speakers throughout the house so you can use those to play music if you want. The pool was great and there are even pool toys and such in the garage. We also had sufficient space to play a few lawn games before a short walk to the beach.

Given the location, there are tons of activities nearby and we easily got to and from Atlantic City by party bus, which was about $5 per person each way. The owner provided the info for the service as well as other recommendations and nearby activities. As I mentioned earlier, the owner was helpful, very easy to work with, and was available to answer any questions plus provide suggestions when needed. I will say though, if you do have as large a group as I did, make sure you are prepared to clean up. It was fine in our case as we were ready for that and planned ahead.

I'd definitely recommend this home and feel that large families or big groups would get the most use out of it! The provided descriptions and the layout are dead on, so if that's what you're looking for, that's what you'll get!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group. Brian, the homeowner, made us feel as though we were coming to visit family. The house was exactly as pictured, beautiful and functional. We all enjoyed the amenities offered, heated pool and putting green and large comfortable rooms. Can't wait to arrange another family get away .
