About The Owner

We have been coming to LBI since we were kids ourselves. Our goal is to provide the same experience to our children, family and friends. To help make this happen, we rely on renting our home to you. Therefore, we welcome your family to share in our experience. We maintain the property as a private home, not just an investment rental property. When not renting, we enjoy staying at our home and continually upkeeping the property to provide you with a home away from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

Why The Owner chose Ship Bottom

Location, location, location. We love the beach and being able to walk and bike everywhere. After a day at the beach, you are a short stroll away from restaurants, ice cream parlor, miniature golf, etc. Leave your car parked and enjoy the location.

What makes this house unique

Walk everywhere! We provide 6 beach badges. Detached garage to store your bikes, surfboards and beach toys...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ok, I admit it, I’m a friend of the owner and asked if she’d mind if I wrote a review when we went down to visit. Their family of four, my family of 2, and my friend visited this weekend. Wow! I spent the weekend looking out over the water watching the kids play at the beach in the not-so-distant distance with a drink resting on the outdoor seating bar on the downstairs deck. About the house…right on the beach – literally sand up to their back entrance walkway, walkable to restaurants and bars, 2 decks, newer exterior and everything inside is bright, cheery and clean! Actually laughed when I saw how much seating and sleeping area there truly was. All three couches, spread over 2 living areas are pull-out beds. 5 TVs. PlayStation and games for the kids. Great internet service. Kitchen has newer appliances, the showers are large, the back deck has a gate for your smaller kid’s safety. A really nice highlight of the setup is the ability to have one family (2 adults, 2 kids) sleep on the north side of the home in adjoining rooms with a bathroom. Private if the door is closed. Then another family on the Southside…a master bedroom and a “kids room” with bunkbed that sleeps 3 and another twin with hallway bath. And then another couple or kids downstairs with their own ½ bath. There’s an outdoor shower, grill, storage downstairs…really, just an overall great place in a perfect location!

A family gathering for a special occasion

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and 5 children celebrated a special occasion the first week in July. The house was a delight. Freshly painted, clean and comfortable in every respect. The bedrooms satisfied our needs and the beds comfortable. The house could not be more convenient to the beach, walk out the back door and you're there!! The accommodations and the location were excellent.

Highly recommended.

We rented this house with two other families and it was perfect. It had everything we needed and more. The location was great. It couldn't have been better being right on the beach. We had an issue with the central air conditioner and the homeowners sent someone that day to resolve it. They were great and I would recommend this house to anyone! Thank you for another memorable week on Long Beach Island!

Excellent for Large Families - Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for the first time in 2015 and we were already discussing 2016 before we left - what a great location and layout. When we arrived everything was clean and we felt right at home. Having two family rooms for our large family also proved a bonus on the odd rainy day or when we were all getting ready in the morning.

And the best part - the view and beach access. Literally steps from the beach and you have two porches to watch the waves day and night. It was also very conveniently located neat the Acme shopping mart which is essential if you use the house grill as much as we did.

We are looking forward to next year and will absolutely try for this location first - as the owners were accommodating and the location/property was great for our family.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in LBI every summer for the past 10 years and this house is by far the best! I always arrive with a bottle of antibacterial cleaner when we rent a vacation property and I was thrilled we didn't need it for this home. We found the house clean and comfortable. The location is perfect: oceanfront, walking distance to stores and restaurants as well as Skipper Dipper. Two families shared this home without feeling cramped. The owners were so helpful when we had a question about groceries being delivered. I highly recommend this home. We will be returning next summer!
