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.
*If not fully booked by June we can rent with only using 6 bedroom/3 bath, 7/3 or 8 bedrooms/4 bath when inquiring please.
This home can also be rented as first floor only (sleeps 8/9 w/cot) 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). If rooftop deck with hot tub is not wanted we can provide a discount.
Township now offers a transportation option to the beach. All you have to do is call & a Gator(beach buggy) will pick you up,take you down gear & 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 16 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, & 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.
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. www.geocaching.com
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).
During your stay, Owners take of the hot tub chemicals & house maintenance, repairs or emergencies if any. 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 third floor is locked out for Owners who may be present during your stay, 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 3rd 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. If we are here during your stay & you need us let us know. We will say Hi if we see you. Our home is for your enjoyment. Vacation is time to have fun, laugh, & enjoy all LBI has to offer. Fun in the sun, ocean & bay play if our motto!

Wonderful property! Lots of space for large families with all the amenities. Easy access to the beach.Mary Ann and Tom ensured that all our requests were met! Thanks so much!
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!
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!
I've attended 3 different gatherings at the Beach House Retreat and it is the PERFECT place! If you are planning an office meeting or girls Weekend or business seminar, family reunion, birthday party.....any time you need a large but intimate space you must consider coming here! Let your ideas flow.........with a home setting opposed to a hotel where there really aren't meeting rooms on LBI. There is a large table to congregate with a sitting area. There is also the outdoor space. Plenty of sleeping too if you are staying overnight or the weekend. Steps to the beach is an added bonus. And Mary Ann and Tom will help you plan from start to finish if needed!! I just can't say enough, check it out for yourself.
Had my 60th Birthday party with 20 of my closest friends, it rained the day of the party but the house was so large it accommodated everyone for an indoor party. We were all very comfortable and the 6 bedrooms slept all of us. The house is located just a few yards from the beach which was great, no long walk from the bay to the ocean like we usually do. Also don't be alarmed by the owners living a section of the house. Mary Ann & Tom was none intrusive but were available if needed. Lovely people also. If your looking for a nice house thats close to the beach and all the fine restaurants that LBI has to offer this is the house to rent. We also took our two dachshunds with us and they loved it as well. Oh, how could I forget the rooftop hot tub with the beautiful views of LBI. We hope to be able to visit again sometime.
The huge dining table is a great place to gather and share ideas. The house has indoor and outdoor places to gather and/or spread out in groups to deliberate ideas. The house is perfect for day meeting, networking or a project working weekend. Great location that I have had meetings at both in and out of season with the owners!
We had a fantastic week at the house in August. Hot tub and porch on the roof were great - especially at sunset! Location to the beach (5 minute walk) was so convenient. Really appreciated that lots of beach chairs and a few umbrellas were available at the house for our use. Lots of stores and restaurants easily accessible. House was laid out nicely for a big group. Owners were very nice and extremely helpful with lots of information about the area.
Five family went for our yearly meet out. Very close to Beach, just a min walk. House was kept very clean and themed with small toys. Enough parking. Very close to shops. We loved the stay. Pets policies are Ok, but we didn't prefer due to high cost. That aside, the owner was very helpful and friendly. The roof top HotTub and the view from there to Beach was amazing!!. We will surely visit after few years.
This house was a wonderful place to have a family reunion. The kitchen has professional grade appliances and the table sat our whole family. We used all 8 bedrooms and it worked out great. The hot tub on the roof was a big hit during the evenings. We also enjoyed the seating in the back yard. It was a great place to play giant jenga! It was ideal to be so close to the beach because we could go for morning and evening walks along the beach and even head back for lunch regularly.
We rented this home during a celebratory weekend on the Island. Once we rented the hosts were in touch with us and were helpful with various suggestions. The home was as advertised and the hosts could not be nicer nor more accommodating. At check in they gave us the run down on the house, provided an enormous amount of snacks (always appreciated) and accommodated every request we had. Not to mention that they are lovely people. Would not hesitate to rent this property again in the future.
This beach house was the perfect place for our family reunion. The house had a perfect layout with a very large dinning table for us all to sit at one time, large grill and a roof top hot tub. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and will definitely be back next year. The owners were great to work with !!
