Coastal shingle style design on a superior bayfront site with expansive sunset, wildlife, and bay views! Comprehensive outdoor program includes in-ground pool with brick surround, 2 level dock, and beautiful irrigated landscape. Substantial home provides 6 bedrooms; 4 full baths; one half bath; family room; library; master suite with sitting room, fireplace and private bayfront balcony; screen porch; slate and wood flooring; skylights; three fireplaces; and gourmet's kitchen with Wolf, SubZero and Gaggenau appliances and fully equipped butler's pantry or as we refer to it as our 'secret kitchen'. The landscaping enhances the privacy of the home while remaining close to the lighthouse, ocean and right on the bay!
This is the perfect house for a large family or for two families to share. The first floor has 3 bedrooms (a Queen room near a separate room containing a crib, another queen bedroom, and a double bunk bed room) 2 full baths and family room with a ping pong table. The second floor is the main living space---kitchen, butler's pantry, dining, sitting area, library, half bath, porch and dining deck. The third floor has 3 bedrooms (master suite with office and private balcony, large walk-in closet and large bathroom, 1 queen bedroom and 1 twin bedroom, each with small private balconies that share a bathroom.
It is so relaxing that you may never leave the bay. Swim in the pool, fish from the dock, use one of our two kayaks, enjoy watching the boats and abundant wildlife. Dig for clams for your dinner! It is especially fun to use our bikes and select fish from dinner at Cassidy's Fish Market, produce at the local stand or candy at the Sugar Shack at Viking Village. White's Grocery Store is also a short bike ride away!
Our home is not available for weekend rentals; minimum stay is one week.
We were looking for a large home for our family to enjoy. We have four children and so far, one grandchild and wanted a quiet spot for all to relax and be together. This spot is perfect---a quiet cul-de-sac, huge home with lots of nooks and crannies and activiites that everyone can enjoy!
When you walk around to the back of this house, turn the corner and see it for the first time, it takes your breath away. When you walk around the second time...it takes your breath away...
The marsh is mesmerizing...from its splendid array of green hues...to the osprey nest, wherein recently the mother osprey is tending to her newborn while the father stands watch atop an adjacent post...to the stunningly white egrets...and the majestic blue heron taking flight...all to be seen even more closely through binoculars or on a short kayak ride...and then at the end of the day under the setting orange sun and shimmering blue ocean...
We have been vacationing on LBI for over 25 years and we have never seen a house this comfortable and spectacular...there is a little niche in the dining room and a similar one on the breezy screened in porch where you can eat, read or play cards amidst a panoramic view of water and sky that almost seems endless...
Imagine what is like to have a main kitchen and beside it a charming pantry wherein you have two fridges, two ovens, three sinks and two dishwashers...
The bedrooms are cozy and they all have flat screen TVs...you don't even have to bring your own sheets or blankets. Just bring towels.
While you have to get used to the temptation to stay at the house---because it is just so relaxing by the pool on the deck loungers and the book collection is first-rate---when you wish to swim on the ocean side it is a short bicycle or car ride away---and there are numerous ocean access points. It's always nice to know that you have eight beach badges and a new collection of comfy beach chairs to choose from---the owner truly understands her guests' needs and sense of convenience.
Another huge plus is the Friday to Friday check in/check out. As many of you know, the traffic on the Garden State Parkway on Saturdays in the summer is a 100 mile logjam.
The one mental aspect you have to get used to is---you will not want to leave this house, as you are accustomed to with other rentals---because it has so many joys and comforts, you just have to tell yourself---it's OK! The amazing thing is, even with 14 people in the house, you don't feel the least bit crowded or on top of each other. With all the balconies and porches and decks and jacuzzi, there are private niches galore. And if you really want to have some unforgettable moments to yourself, hop in the kayak and paddle around the corner deeper into paradise.
The owner was so amazingly sweet & helpful! This place was simply breathless & coulnd't believe how many little extras that made our stay JUST PERFECT!!!
I would recommend this & I have friends saw my pictures on FaceBook & asked how I found it b/c they NEEDED to go
The layout was great & there were alot of us but there were so many places you could go to get away, the house was newly painted inside & out & windows everywhere so it made it feel so brite & cheerful

If you enjoy being right on the bay and spectacular, this is the place for you! Less than 1/2 mile to the historic Viking Village fishing area and only 1 mile to the beach. Cool off in the pool after you return from kayaking! A wonderful house for a family!
