Grand Ole Rooftop Deck: The 4th floor rooftop deck gives you the opportunity to tune out the world and relax. The hot tub will melt away the worries and let the good times sink in. Panoramic views of the island and surrounding towns over the bridge twinkle at night. You can see Old Barney's Light blimp on the left, the bridge rails glow, and to the right the ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering lit Borgota that changes color every few minutes and daily change of patterns. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms.

If you bring your own bikes we have a bike rack, and the clothesline is out back also.

We have some beach chairs and umbrellas for your use and also boogie boards and a skim board. The surf shop carries all these items also if you need more or want some other options. We have a toy box with sand toys, trucks, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. No matter what weather pack those bathing suits year round, the hot tub is on the rooftop deck 4 stories up and the views are amazingly soothing. A hot tub certainly takes the sting out of a cloudy rainy day for sure. The house has several movies rated from G to R for your watching pleasure, and a few games for a play station if you bring your set up. For those kids on the rainy days we have games, books,cards and puzzles to entertain them.

Take a bucket a net up to the Bayview park and let the little ones find all the creatures in the sea, this is fun!

About Mary Ann Gutchigian

My husband Tom and I both grew up on LBI in the summers. We lived next door to each other until age 10. After 30 years we reconnected at age 40! We have raised 4 daughters here and were married on our beach. We married in 2006 bought my familys home and renovated so we could share LBI with others.

Mary Ann Gutchigian purchased this house in 1957

Why Mary Ann Gutchigian chose Long Beach Island

We purposely built the house to having several places to spread out in different living areas, or gather in one spot, indoors and outdoors. This helps with multi- generational families. We love introducing new visitors to the island and showing them the ropes. We also have a great connection with people who have been coming to LBI and our home year after year.

We also welcome groups for retreats. We have retreat groups in the months of Sept.-June. We are currently looking for more retreat leaders to fill some weekends with their offerings. If interested please contact me. We look for all kinds of groups: Ladies, Men’s, Artists, Holistic, Spiritual, Healthy Ways, Networking, Business, and more.

We opened the LBI GeoTrail Nov. 2013 ask me about Geocaching! The kids will love it, and it is a great thing to do on those cloudy days!

What makes this house unique

I do milestone event planning: birthdays, anniversaries, repass, christenings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, diner parties, brunches, continental breakfasts and more. If you are planning to have an event please let me know if you need my services. Many homes do not allow parties at their homes on LBI, but there is a need and we have had great success with entertaining for our visitors and have enjoyed their reunion type gatherings. We book for wedding stays and bachelorette weekends.

Having raised 4 daughters we have a great understanding of what parents wants and needs are while down on LBI. We suggest what going on for the kids as well as the adults and provide coupons, maps, and brochures for the areas offerings. Sunny days and raining days we have the answers on what to do. Please Don’t Hesitate to ask a question during a stay, and Welcome to “Beach House Retreats on LBI, NJ”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great family vacation location. The beach is so close that even bathroom breaks are easy. The kitchen is fantastic and it allowed us to save a lot of money by eating in. The kitchen table will comfortably seat 12! The bedrooms are very comfortable and the view from the master bedroom (king sized bed) is beautiful.

We will return next year!

Weather was crappy, but the house was perfect for our large family; especially the second floor TV lounge; kids had a great time. The hot tub was a hit with everyone. Loved the huge first floor dining table; again, with a large group this was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review! I wish I could control the weather! What a blustery rainy weekend it was! It didn't seem to slow the kids down! They had a ball outside and in and so did the dogs! I try to make the house have things to do in foul weather, I'm glad you found it suitable to keep them entertained. Nothing beats a hit tub in cooler weather I must say! We built the table ourselves to make sure family's could eat together in stead of all over the house indoors and out like most other homes on LBI. We come fro a large family and our goal is to make sure the gang can hang out together or apart with options to keep them entertained. I hope to have your family back in the near future! Enjoy the Fall, Survive the Winter, Thaw in Spring and COME BACK AGAIN! Sincerely, Tom and Mary Ann

Perfect place for a big family or beach crew. House is very accommodating and beach is literally 50 steps. They have everything you need - great grill, all the fun beach toys, chairs, etc. Just a seamless and awesome experience on LBI. The owners are so nice and accommodating.

Beautiful House! So much to offer!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need for a family get together down the shore. It is steps from the beach and can fit the whole family. Beautiful top deck with hot tub. It offers great views of the island and the beach. The whole family had a great time during our stay. We very much recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay at LBI.

Perfect Beach House that has EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect beach house for someone with a larger group of people looking to stay in the Beach Haven/Long Beach Island area, you are literally less than 100 feet from being on the beach so you can pick your spot on the beach, walk back to the house for lunch, a snack or whatever you want and be back on the beach in less than 5 mins. We had up to 16 people staying at the house, ranging in age from 2 years old to (well lets just say that they qualified for the senior citizens discounts) and the house was plenty large enough and so well equipped that we all had a great time there. The large open kitchen with the large pub style kitchen table was able to sit the entire family all at one sitting and made for a great area to play board games. the upstairs and downstairs living/TV rooms allowed the kids to have a completely separate place to watch TV while the adults enjoyed something a little more quiet. BTW, the house is stocked with everything you could possibly ever imagine wanting at the beach (100's of DVD's, books, magazines, local tourist brochures, restaurant menu's, maps, coupons, anything you could ever need in the kitchen, beach chairs, boogie boards, children's toys, board games, etc.).

One of the features we all loved besides how close to the beach we were was the sun deck and hot tub on the roof of the third floor. You've got a terrific view of the ocean as well as the surrounding area. This made for a perfect place to relax after dinner. The other great thing we liked that you might not get from the listing is that there is an ACME grocery store about 6 blocks (walking distance) from the house. When you have a large group of people and you need to grab something from the store, it isn't a hassle at all when you're that close.

You really need to check this place out and talk with the owners (Mary Ann & Tom) and they will do everything possible to make sure you have a great vacation there!

We are located in a very family friendly area. There is plenty to do on foot without starting your car once you roll into to relax. For meals you have several options: Joey's Pizza (great to send the kids to for a slice or subs), Pinky's Shrimp( fishery for you to cook yourself, take out meals or eat at outside there, Pinzamino's Italian Restaurant (BYOB, Fancy), and Kubel's Too Tavern (fantastic Happy Hour 4-7 daily,cheap drinks and apps, nice menu altogether. When cooking in: Acme Market and Dune Produce Farms Market should have you covered. We are a guarded surfing beach and have 2 surf shops at the end of the block one gives lessons and carries most beach needs, candy, chairs etc, the other rents bikes and has roller blades, clothes and such. There are 2 ice cream shops in opposite directions, a gas station, and a pottery store with unique gift ideas. There is a 4 plex movie theater and a bait shop for the dormant fisherman. These 13 shops pretty much cover most ages needs.

My Husband Tom and I and 2 of 4 daughters live here in a lock out part of the home. LBI is such a wonderful place to raise a family, and have a small town life, with a fast paced summer to enjoy. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home and love of LBI to long time renters to LBI and showing Newbies to the Island the why it is such a hot spot year round now. Tom and I have grown up on the island in the summer months and moved down full time in 2006. We got married on our beach and it has been bliss ever since.

Come stay with us for your vacations, reunions, wedding stays, bachelorette weekends, and retreats. Book one of our retreats we offer or bring your retreat group with your goals in mind. Discounted pricing in the off season Sept.-May. We look for new retreat partners that want to expand their offerings by adding retreats to their business model, contact us for more info.

Meeting your needs and making your stay even more enjoyable year round is our goal.
