We built this table ourselves to accommodate our guests. There is shelving underneath for food storage, cook books, meal prep machines (bread maker, ice machine, smoothie maker, ice cream maker etc.). We are fully stocked with cooking pots and pan of various sizes, baking ware, stone wear, including lobster pots, steamers, clam opener, crab claw crackers, hammers and picks. We have fancy glassware of your cocktail party and huggies to enjoy a cold beer in. There are 2 dressers to use to make serving buffet meals a snap. One dresser has drawers of party serving dishes and bowls, trivet and dish towels. The other dresser in cabinet and has games, puzzles, cards and toys for rainy days, and room for your storage. The dresser drawers have extra blankets and the set up for the pull-out couch.

There is a washer/dryer closet, pantry closet, and extra pantry/storage shelves by back door.

The 3rd bathroom on second floor is a full bathroom with tub and storage cabinet.

Living room on 2nd floor:

Enjoy the ocean & bay views and menagerie of colored glass sun and moon décor in the second Living room. This is a great place to escape to for movie night for the kids, a place to send the second-generation party or to have some peace and quiet when you close the downstairs door. It has an 60 inch big screen TV, popup storage table for puzzles, and game playing. We have over 150 videos from G to R rated movies to entertain our guests. The Wii game station has several games and workout games to choose from. There is seating for 10 on the couch, U couch with full pullout couch and big leather chair.


The front yard has 3 parking spots and additional 3-4 up the left side alley. Do you need to plug in your electric car? We have an OUTLET on the front porch and on the left alley of house.

The back yard has a large teak dining table with umbrella, a teak outdoor living room set, and a large 5 burner grilling station. The outside show is roomy for when you need to bring in the herd of little ones to rinse them before lunch. We have a clothesline to help keep ahead of the wet towel syndrome that sometimes occurs at the beach.

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 blip on the left, the causeway bridges rails glow, and to the right the Ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering Borgata Casino that changes color every few minutes. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms. It's nice to have room to sit in comfort and have a cocktail while visiting on the deck when watching the fireworks and the little one’s excitement! Plan your BBQ with friends and dine in the back yard with the large table and bench seating, outdoor living room set, kiddie picnic tables and new grill and large cooler for extra beverages. If you bring your own bikes, please keep them locked up.

Sept.- May:

This home can also be rented as first floor only (sleeps 8 with 3 bedrooms and pullout couch in living room) including 3 onsite parking spaces, same back yard use and rooftop deck access. (FIRST FLOOR ONLY RENTALS- 3 parking spots are reserved for owner and full second floor lock out for owners use, we do not share back yard or rooftop deck areas- these are for you).


Township now offers a transportation option to the beach. All you have to do is call and a Gator(beach buggy) will pick you up and take you down gear and all to the beach. It will pick you back up when called to take you home.

What to bring:

If you have bikes bring them, if it's too much to carry, rent them down the street. If you like to fish, bring your gear, or just walk up to the bait shop and buy some new presents for your crew to remember your trip.

We have beach chairs and umbrellas for your use, a boogie board and some tubes. 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, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. We supply 10 beach badges. You are able to buy more if needed. The checkers are not that crazy about taking a head count most of the time. Kids under 12 do not need them. Most kids are under 12 (wink, wink).


Volleyball set, badminton set, corn hole, soccer balls, kick ball, beach ball, tennis rackets and balls, pickle ball set, racket ball set, and a football.

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.

LBI Experience:

Here is some of the must do's if you can fit them in to your relaxing visit.

Fishing on the Black Whale or out of Barnegat Light.

Barnegat Lighthouse trek (214 steps!).

Nardi's Tavern (great bands and pizza, free bus transportation to and from daily).

Skipper Dipper Ice Cream.

Fantasy Island Amusement Park.

Howards Seafood Restaurant (great salmon dishes, and Lobster Bisque!).

Bay Village Schooner's Wharf is a must for shopping, Country Crumb in Bay Village has delicious Elephant ear cookies and Choc. chip cookies to die for!

Country Kettle Fudge should satisfy your sweet tooth. Just as a FYI, I don’t recommend the clam fudge they offer at Chowderfest first weekend of October!

Thundering Surf is fun for all ages with tubing down the lazy river, tubing shoots, a kiddie water playground, a huge mini golf on a 'mountain’, and lots of food and drinks to keep you going.

Go Geocaching with the kids or group! It’s a worldwide scavenger hunt! Set up your account and learn more about this fun outdoor sport before you come down. Do the LBI GeoTrail for those cloudy cool days when the beach is not an option.

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 for all ages! There is also a playground, water sport lessons (SUP, Kiteboarding, Kayaking) and a place to go out on your own water gear, public bathrooms, pickle ball, basketball, bocce ball, dog park, volleyball. Pack a lunch or wait for the ice cream man at the picnic area. (We have the net gear and buckets to take there, everyone over 12 needs a beach badge here- and Joanie is strict with checking for them).

Concierge and Milestone Event Planning Services:

Need a wonderful vacation, retreat, holiday stay or want LBI destination wedding? We are ready for you! Do you need help while in town? We can help you with: catering, setting up in house spa treatments, food shopping, arranging rentals for bikes, kayaks, sup's, surfing lessons and more. We offer help to our guests any way we can.

If you have any questions or issues during your stay we are a knock, text or a phone call away to help you or recommend things to go, see or places to eat and coupons we have access to. Please don’t hesitate to ask.


The back part of the second floor and third floor is locked out for Owners who is a Year-Round Tenant, with own entrance, and the far right 2 parking spots next to fence are reserved. We do not share the back yard or rooftop deck areas- these are for you. We have our own 2nd floor backdoor entrance and front deck with grill. You can read our numerous reviews that state our renters loved staying with us and our presence was welcomed when needed. We are here if you need us and just say hi in passing if you don’t. Our home is for your enjoyment. Vacation is time to have fun, laugh, and enjoy all LBI has to offer. Fun in the sun, ocean and bay play if our motto! Please knock, text or call us if you need us.

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 villa in 1957

Why Mary Ann Gutchigian chose Peahala Park

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 villa 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 enjoy your beach house retreat with us.

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!

Spacious and homelike comfort

  • 5 of 5

When I first came through door I felt like I was home. Wonderful beach theme setting unlike most rental properties. Great place for multi-family vacationing. A very short walk to an immaculate beach and the fantastic ocean. I would highly recommend this property and plan on returning year after year. LBI is a quiet, family oriented vacation spot that has it all.

Bachelorette Weekend Success

  • 5 of 5

The house for the weekend was amazing! Its proximity to the beach makes it the ideal place to stay in LBI. Nine of us stayed in the house for a bachelorette weekend (all with a bed) and could not have asked for more. The rooftop deck is a great spot to entertain and the downstairs kitchen fit us all comfortably. Mary Ann and Tom were so willing to help and are just the kindest hosts we could imagine. I would definitely recommend staying here - we are trying to come back here next year ourselves!

Fantastic Extended Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion vacation week for our mother's 80th Birthday at Tom and Mary Ann's house was nothing short of fantastic! The weather was great..even with the complimentary downpour day to let the skin come off sizzle mode..just perfect.

We were a large family group... family coming in from NY, NM, Ca and Germany. We pushed the limits in space but with the backyard patio area, rooftop hot tub soaking deck (special accolades to that), the ocean so close and so many places you could walk, bike, paddle to we never at all came to in your face situations... which we all know with family is usually inevitable.

We wanted to do something special for our Mom (Omi) for her birthday so we took Mary Ann and Tom's referral and hired the caterer that they suggested... we did a luau theme and they came to the house with the pig roast complete with Hawaiian veges and salads. I for one was amazed that we actually surprised her but I do believe we really pulled it off.

We were initially hesitant to rent because of landowners sharing the same house..but we started our search late and there weren't many options to accommodate our large group so we took the chance. Couldn't have been any farther from the fears we had to reality. Always friendly and helpful.. never intrusive or controlling. By the time we left it felt like we were leaving old friends.... the hot donuts Mary Ann brought us from an old time LBI donut shop, the morning before we left sealed the deal!

Our family grew up summers in LBI..staying with friends that owned and/or our family renting for weeks at a time. I think I can speak for our family in saying we came home that week. A wonderful magical place in our memories. Lucky me got to share it with my granddaughter while my Mom (Omi) is still with us and oh so big a center of our family. 4 generations of LBI addicts.... what better place to enjoy family!

Owner's Response: Thank you Rina, We had a wonderful time meeting you all and watching your family enjoy LBI so much! That is what makes our jobs fun! We love sharing the house and memories. We hope to have you back as a regular or for your next generational party! Enjoy the rest of the summer and stay fun! Mary Ann and Tom

Great place for family gatherings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this house. WE had about 20 extended family members from age 11 to 69. The house fit us all comfortably even in comfortable beds. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and appliances with even enough silverware for us when we all ate at the same time at the great kitchen table! The table was also good for playing games at night, even having having two different groups playing at the same time.

The closeness to the beach is a plus. Watching the 4th of July fireworks from the top deck was a hit. Many enjoyed the hot tub especially on the days that the ocean was too cold!

We plan to go back again to this house next year.

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.
