About Gianni Bellini

My family has owned vacation homes at the Jersey shore my entire life and then some. I grew up in Woodland Park North Jersey, but am a beach bum at heart and I have personally owned this property for 19 years now. I reside here most of the year except during July and August when I rent out the house to families who are on vacation at the Jersey shore.

Gianni Bellini purchased this house in 1997

Why Gianni Bellini chose Ortley Beach

The house originally was a 3 bedroom 1 bath ranch with a detached 2 car garage on a double lot. My father, being in construction his whole life undertook the large task of doing a complete rebuild in 2007 transforming the small ranch into a beautiful side by side duplex. It truly exceeded all of our expectations! We did go a little overboard, putting the BEST of everything in both units.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location is why I purchased this property 19 years ago. With the beach only a 2 block walk away and bars, restaurants, and shops all only a block away, it is the best area to enjoy your summer at the Jersey shore. The house is so comfortable and has so many amenities there is not much else to do except kick back, relax, and beach it!!

Very clean, owner Gianni was very responsive and always available.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay during the week of July 29 - August 5th 2017. We loved the large clean kitchen, dining space and private patio with a gas grill. The rooms and bathrooms were immaculate and provided all that we needed space wise for our group. We are looking forward to going back next summer!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location between the beach and the bay with lots to do within a very short walk: arcade, miniature golf, restaurants from fine dining to famous Johnnie Fries and Kohrs ice cream, to a farmer's market with Jersey corn, blueberries, and more. You can even walk to the Seaside Heights boardwalk! We did.

The house is beautiful. New, clean, and well-cared for. Owner, Gianni, is wonderful--attentive and responsive. Can''t find a nicer more helpful, generous owner. Perfect spot for a family vacation!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and extended family stayed here for a week in July 2015! The location was perfect as it was only a two block walk to the ocean, one block walk to Barnacle Bills (arcade and mini golf) and walkable distance to shops, restaurants and ice cream. We took our bikes, and there was more than ample room to park four cars and 7 bicycles. Seaside Boardwalk was a 5 minute drive. The house is clean and newly renovated. The 5 bedrooms and four bathrooms were perfect for 5 adults, two teenagers and 2 tweens. The bedroom on the first level was great for my mother who has difficulty with stairs. The owner was always quick to respond to any questions we might have had. I would highly recommend this rental!

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this home we knew that we made a great decision. It is clean, spacious, updated and loved the 4 bathrooms! This made it so easy for 8 adults, 2 ten year olds and one infant to get ready for evening plans after a day on the beach. The shops, restaurants, beach etc. are all an easy walk. Seaside boardwalk is a 5 minute drive. We are from the area but have since moved out of state as do 2 of our children. We have stayed in LBI in the past but Ortley was easier for our family that lives in the Toms River area to visit for the day. Just a ride over the bridge! The owner was always available to answer any of our questions. Our two weeks (June 27-July11) flew by but we enjoyed every minute!

Best experience of my life

  • 5 of 5

This shore home is 10x better than any idea you may have, the home was done with love care and attention to guests detail, we've stayed here multiple summers and wouldn't chance one bit (location, local walking distance restaurants and bars) it makes you feel bad to go out but then again it's so close to the beach I guess you gotta
