About Property Manager/Owner
Jon and his young son Archie live in this house most of the year, but each summer they share their home and beach with wonderful families who share their love of the beach, bay, surfing, local food, art, and the community. They are available if you need anything during your stay.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Ship Bottom
You can stay in a generic, vinyl-sided, climate control box on LBI, but why not get back to roots? Why not unplug? This is one of the most unique rental homes on LBI, a full travel experience just over the bridge.
What makes this House unique
In addition to staying in a custom home adorned with style and local artwork just two blocks from one of LBI's best beaches and two blocks from the Barnegat Bay, we can arrange private rooftop yoga, stand up paddle tours, backyard clambakes, and surfing lessons. Your host is a wealth of knowledge about LBI.

We had a great experience! Jon was easy to communicate with and had lots of ideas for our time in Shipbottom.
Spacious and private
This large and eclectically decorated lodge was a feast for the eyes. Everywhere we looked were original works by various artists, including historic black and white photos and two remarkable canvas blow ups of beach country. (Jon, our host, proudly pointed out a picture of his Dad, who was a fisherman). Beautiful light streamed from the large windows throughout the house. We were able to catch a breeze from any direction. The many rooms, and several decks afforded our party of adults privacy and quiet spaces to read, rest and contemplate. Clean lines in the furnishings and open spaces completed the overall 'zen' atmosphere of comfort. Several of our favorite places were a block away, as well as our new favorite The Local --the ocean, a short block further. The beach has been replenished and is wide and beautiful. Jon was available and attentive to our calls. He is very personable. It's easy to relate to his positive, upbeat energy. I could go on, but suffice it to say we loved our stay. You've got to see the outdoor spaces, including the outdoor shower where ivy and sea shells give a spa feel.
Sigh. Wanna go back. Thanks, Jon.
A short trip to paradise
The entire process was seamless. Jon is an amazing guy and was able to work with us at every step along the process. He was always available for questions before and during our stay.
The house itself is amazing. It is exactly as listed and more. The house is beautifully decorated and offers a very homely feeling. The backyard is a paradise and looks wonderful at night. All of the bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. A fully equipped kitchen makes eating a breeze!
In addition, the house is very environmentally friendly!
I would HIGHLY recommend this wonderful home.
Awesome house and Jon was great.
Great location and lovely welcome!
Jon is a great host, he was very responsive to questions I had ahead of time. My in-laws arrived before us, he dropped to make sure they were able to enter the property and even showed them around the house. Lots of beautiful lit space and an incredibly convenient location to the beach and restaurants. Perfect place to stay while in town for a wedding.
Great location. Cool architecture. Lots of thought was given to the design and decorations. Nice personal touches. Felt very comfortable. Loved the decks and fenced in yard with trees and hammock. Perfect combination of indoor/outdoor spaces. Owner was friendly and available. Highly recommended!
Very nearby to several wedding venues if you are a guest at an LBI wedding.
