About Duane Watlington

My wife Kathy and I were born and raised right here in NJ and grew up vacationing 'down the shore' on Long Beach Island. We love Ship Bottom and hope you will enjoy staying in our home as much as we do! If you have any questions, please feel free to text or call us at 732-236-2185.

Duane Watlington purchased this House in 2013

Why Duane Watlington chose Ship Bottom

This property is a dream come true for my wife. We spent the first 8 summers of my children's lives vacationing in a house just a stone throw away from this location. Some day we dreamed of owning a little piece of this relaxing island paradise and in 2013 our dream came true! We like this area for its beautiful wide beaches, quiet family friendly neighborhood, and convenient, central location. Easy access on and off the Island is also a big plus and now we have the FREE LBI Shuttle...what else could you ask for?

What makes this House unique

Once you step out on to the roof top decks, you will see why we chose this house. Watch the sun come up out of the ocean or go down into the bay. Panoramic views from one of the highest roof top decks in Ship Bottom. Then, when its time to go inside, relax with all of the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. Our guests tell us the nicest feature/benefit we have is having a pool in a ocean block rental. You have the best of both words...just steps to the beach or steps to the pool. Spend your mornings on the beach, afternoons by the pool, cocktail hour on the roof top deck to see the sun go down! Then walk to your favorite restaurant, mini golf, or ice cream. Park the car and enjoy your beach vacation down the Jersey Shore!

                                                              Amazing Beach House with roof top ocean view

                                                              Spacious property, modern, up to date, and very clean. Loved having the heated pool in the back yard. Walking distance to fun restaurants and cozy neighborhood bars.So want to return. Thank you .

                                                              Perfect Vacation

                                                              Kathy C.

                                                              One of the cleanest and well stocked vacation homes I've ever rented on LBI. The view from the roof deck was amazing. Just a few steps and we were on the beach. We had a fantastic stay and didn't want to leave. Awesome vacation at Shamrock By the Sea, thank you Diane & Kathy! We look forward to returning in 2018!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you Kathy! We agree, the roof top decks are to die for, especially during sunrise and sunset! I am glad you found us and look forward to having you stay with us again in 2018!

                                                              Wonderful rental! So close to the beach!

                                                              Shamrock by the sea is a great house with nice furnishings and so close to the beach! Easy access on and off the island. We've been coming here for years and the owners have been wonderful-easy to reach and very helpful. Highly recommend this place!

                                                              Beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped

                                                              Connie B.

                                                              Spent a week the last two summers, and am booked again for 2018. Perfect location adjacent to the beach, modern, clean and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything-there was not an item we reached for in the kitchen they did not have. Outside rinse off shower is ideal upon returning from the beach, especially with sand-filled little ones. Having the pool is also great when you need a break from the beach. Try the chowder at the Greenhouse Cafe (walking distance)...absolutely amazing!

                                                              Owners are extremely responsive and clearly care that their renters are enjoying themselves.

                                                              Our only con is the lack of a tub in either bathroom. This poses a bit of a challenge with the kids but we worked around it. Definitely not a deal-breaker.

                                                              You won't be disappointed!

                                                              Well maintained, beautiful home

                                                              This is really a lovely place to stay. We spent lots of time on the little balcony, and really appreciated the elevator. There are so many extras - the pool, bikes, chairs for the beach, etc. This is a lovely home, and I would highly recommend it.

                                                              Once again amazing trip

                                                              This was our 3rd straight year staying here. Once again Duane and Kathy out did their selfs with this property. They upgraded couches and beach chairs and umbrellas! The house is 2

                                                              Shamrock by the Sea is just 43 steps to the beach with shopping, restaurants, arcade, mini golf within 3 blocks! LBI shuttle also only 1 block away so who needs a car?

                                                              RATES - subject to change until reservation is confirmed. CANCELLATIONS - Cancellations will be charged 15% of the gross rent if the property is re-rented for the full amount. If property is not re-rented for the full amount, the full rental deposit is forfeited. All cancellations must be in writing. Your reservation will be in effect upon receipt of your deposit and the cancellation policy will apply. No refunds will be given for inclement weather, including hurricanes, or for activities beyond control of OWNER. We recommend all guests purchase trip insurance to cover any possible cancellations. A note about the booking process: We prefer to deal directly with our guests, but VRBO/HomeAway defaults to the option to book directly through their site, which extends to you the security of payment protection. If you book with us, you WILL NOT be charged the service fee listed which can range from 4% - 10% of your rental price, and your payment will not be protected by VRBO/HomeAway. We leave the choice up to you…pay the service fee and have your payment protected OR deal directly with us to save the fee. Check our reviews, we are the real deal and have been dealing with guests direct for years :)
