My family of three had an amazing week staying in this modern and well designed beach cottage. As a family of three, we often have trouble finding accommodations that are sized right, as we don't see the point to renting a large home that sleeps 10 or more. Classic LBI beach cottages are disappearing, but we were so happy to find this beautiful cottage home. Danny and Diana have designed their home to be perfectly sized for a small family. The bedrooms are roomy enough with ample storage, the bathroom is modern and the kitchen is perfect! My son loved having his own room and I appreciated having laundry facilities in the home. We loved the open design of the kitchen and living area. My son set up a game of monopoly on the dining table at the beginning of our week and we played it all week there! The rooftop deck with dining table and lounge chairs was my favorite spot in the whole house. We ate most of our meals up there, enjoyed early morning coffee there, watched the sun set, and did some late night star gazing.
Added conveniences included a very clean outdoor shower with great water pressure and hot water, a huge back yard with a storage shed full of outdoor/beach supplies, a gas grill, and ample parking. The keyless entry to the home was very thoughtful and easy to use.
We have rented in Ship Bottom for years and have our favorite restaurants and loved being in a location that allowed us to walk to them. Definitely check out the Sandbox Cafe for breakfast or lunch, Bageleddies, Surf Taco, and our new favorite, Ship Bottom Ice Cream! We also were able to walk to play mini golf at night or to the bay to get a front row view of the sun setting. Walking to the beach was very easy as well, only a block and a half away. We appreciated having beach tags included in the rental!
The owners thought of everything in their home and we had such an amazing week there! We enjoyed viewing the photo montage on the living room wall of the history of this beach cottage. We hope to return sometime in the future!

Great experience at this house. The inside all new clean and bright and the backyard was so big and great to have bbq. We love the location across from surf taco and not too far from the beach and not too far from causeway
Stayed July, 2021
Diana and I go the extra mile to keep everything fresh. Clean and bright are our favorite words :). The new big backyard was an expense well worth it, too. Thank you for staying in the beach house and being wonderful guests. You're welcome back anytime!
We truly had an amazing 4th of July stay on LBI at this rental. It was the perfect location for our family of four, but could have easily fit more. The outdoor spaces on the roof and out back were perfect for family dinners and we always felt like we were just a few steps from where we wanted to be.
Some of our favorite spots for takeout were the Porthole for cheesesteaks, Surf Taco for Taco Tuesday, The best crabcakes ever from Shipbottom Shellfish & The Arlington for our fancy Friday night dinner out. We also got takeout from some our favorite breakfast spots like Shore Good Donuts, Bageleddi's (just steps away) & the LBI Pancake House. However, the favorite spot of the week was Ship Bottom Homemade Ice Cream. It is right around the corner and was probably the best ice cream we've ever had - not to be missed.
We spent plenty of time on the beach and lucked out with the most wonderful weather - we even made our way down to the bay beach one day, if you have little kids it's really the best way to keep them occupied! Our off-beach time was spent mini-golfing, shopping and riding the rides at Fantasy Island, we also biked over to the Boatyard for happy hour one evening (a bit of a hike but worth it!)
The rental house was perfect. Our girls loved the bunk beds and we were very comfortable in our room. The outdoor shower was so convenient and we truly felt like we had everything at our fingertips - menus for dinner, games for after dinner, a washer and dryer on site! There was a convenient startup guide provided with the house, but everything was extremely intuitive and well thought out. I can't recommend this rental enough - thanks for a great stay and a week full of priceless memories!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Angela. Location, location, location! Ship Bottom definitely has it all and the beach house is located right in the center. Good ice cream used to be a 3-minute walk. This season the Ship Bottom Ice Cream Co. opened right on the corner of 18th and the Boulevard, less than a block from the beach house. Now you can walk out the front door for the best ice cream on the island in 30 seconds or less! Although the beach house is close to everything we're tucked away, less than a block away from the Boulevard. No traffic and quiet! It's the only block in all of Ship Bottom like it. Thanks again, Angela. You and your family are welcome back any time!
Great house in a great location. House is well equipped and efficient. Very clean! Close to all.

Our stay at this home was excellent from start to finish. This home was exceptionally clean and updated, close to all restaurants and the beach was walking distance. Everything we needed was already in the house from kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dishes, beach chairs and boogie boards. The Weber BBQ in the yard came in very handy. Sunrise with coffee and sunsets with a cold beer on the top deck was priceless and the outdoor shower was very convenient. I highly recommend staying at this charming cottage.

We had a great family vacation in Ship Bottom! The house was very clean and extremely comfortable! We were a very short walk to the beach, great restaurants, shopping and ice cream! We had great weather and a wonderful time!
Stayed July, 2020
We had the best week staying here. The house is sparkling clean, kitchen has absolutely everything you could need, tons of outdoor seating (on the roof deck and back yard), beach passes, chairs, cart, toys, etc The owners, Danny and Diana, were amazing as well...so accommodating, available and willing to help to make our stay seamless. The house is on the small side but doesn't feel that way with the layout (the upstairs room was perfect for kids - TV, bean bags, etc) and all of the outdoor options. 100% recommend this house!

I wanted to write this review to help future renters from OVER packing during COVID-19. DO bring your own pillows, sheets and blankets = COVID -19 safe measures.
The location is MINT- blocks from EVERYTHING! (As of 6/20/2020, MANY biz are OPEN within walking distance- Surf Taco, BagelEddies, Ship Bottom Shellfish, 3-4 liquor stores, etc.).
Enter on the island and you are blocks to house! The house is EXACTLY as described and pictured - 2 bedrooms with full beds & closets. 2nd bedroom has a twin bed above full and TV with DVD player. One bathroom with shower. Downstairs has outside shower that is super convenient when returning from ocean beach that is a block away.
Upstairs dormer has plenty of “fun” room for older children to play video games on TV, 2 bean bag chairs and a separate A/C unit.
The new fenced yard (attached to house) is HUGE and offers plenty of space to BBQ on a newer Weber grill, sit at a large table that easily seats 8 and a HUGE umbrella that covers it all! There are also 4 lounge chairs and 2 anti-gravity lounge chairs for additional sunning!
Kitchen is FULLY stocked-many types of deep pots and sauté pans, large serving bowls & dishes, MANY utensils, extras like “sun tea” pitcher, medium-sized cooler, insulated pitcher, blender, Keurig coffee maker, 4 slice toaster, FULL knife set...I overpacked. This shore house has it ALL!
For the beach, you have at least 6 beach chairs to choose from, 2 beach umbrellas and 2 beach carts to carry it all.
Danny is quick to respond to ANY inquiry you might have and we will DEFINITELY be renting this wonderful spot again! Worth EVERY PENNY!!

First I want to start off with saying Danny is by far the easiest rental we’ve have ever dealt with, always answered my questions with a quick and timely matter. The house is cleaned and my boys had a fabulous time. Having the roof deck was great. We highly recommend renting this house!!!!
