Year Purchased: 1957
About the owner: My husband Tom and I both grew up on LBI in the summers. We lived next door to each other until age 10. After 30 years we reconnected at age 40! We have raised 4 daughters here and were married on our beach. We married in 2006 bought my familys home and renovated so we could share LBI with others.
Why the Owner Chose North Beach Haven, Long Beach Township, New Jersey, United States of America:
We purposely built the house to having several places to spread out in different living areas, or gather in one spot, indoors and outdoors. This helps with multi- generational families. We love introducing new visitors to the island and showing them the ropes. We also have a great connection with people who have been coming to LBI and our home year after year. We also welcome groups for retreats. We have retreat groups in the months of Sept.-June. We are currently looking for more retreat leaders to fill some weekends with their offerings. If interested please contact me. We look for all kinds of groups: Ladies, Men’s, Artists, Holistic, Spiritual, Healthy Ways, Networking, Business, and more. We opened the LBI GeoTrail Nov. 2013 ask me about Geocaching! The kids will love it, and it is a great thing to do on those cloudy days!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We welcome milestone event celebrations: birthdays, anniversaries, repass, christenings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, diner parties, brunches, continental breakfasts and more. If you are planning to have an event please let me know. Many homes do not allow parties at their homes on LBI, but there is a need and we have had great success with entertaining for our visitors and have enjoyed their reunion type gatherings. We book for wedding stays and bachelorette weekends. Having raised 4 daughters we have a great understanding of what parents wants and needs are while down on LBI. We suggest what going on for the kids as well as the adults and provide coupons, maps, and brochures for the areas offerings. Sunny days and raining days we have the answers on what to do. Please Don’t Hesitate to ask a question during a stay, and Welcome to “Beach House Retreats on LBI, NJ”.
How do we differ from the rest?

Our house that we have built several ways to be flexible with group sizes. We rent as first floor only, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and when we add some upstairs bedrooms we can be rented as a 5 bedrooms/3 bath, 6/3,7/3 or in the main season June- Aug., we book only as an 8 ½ bedrooms and 4 baths. Covid has been a real challenge renting the house, so we made some changes to meet the needs. So, you will see several listings that are us as different combinations of beds and baths. I hope that helps with the confusion. Feel free to ask for more info if you need another bedroom or 2 if you cannot find the other options. I am easily found on the web: Mary Ann Gutchigian

We allow smoking outside only.
We had a great family reunion at this house - kids and adults! Mary Ann and Tom were great to deal with and helpful throughout our stay. Steps from the beach which is great with younger kids. Nice backyard area for grilling as well as hot tub on the roof - great views!
Stayed August, 2022
This house was great for our family of 24. We are a near even mix of adults and kids and there was room and space for all of us. The huge kitchen table was great. I can't remember the last time we all sat down for a meal together. The outdoor space was relaxing. The addition of a new blackstone griddle in the back made cooking up big breakfasts fast and easy. The proximity to the beach made trips back and forth to from the house to take a toddler to the bathroom, fix lunch, or run back to grab something quick made for a stress free week. The hosts were incredibly accommodating even though we hardly ever saw them. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This house is great! Our family of 12 adults and 6 kids fit very comfortably! Being just steps from the beach was amazing and the views from the rooftop deck were great! The living room held many of us and the long dining table was great for ordering or cooking in and being connected to the living room (it allowed us all to congregate together). The upstairs living room gave us an extra space to house the early riser kiddies! We were skeptical of renting a home with owners living on the premises, but they were great! We didn’t even know they were there unless we had a question, to which they were very responsive.
Stayed July, 2021
Beautiful location, you will love it!
There is even a hot tub on the roof!
Stayed June, 2021
This was a great place to stay once again! My family has gone here a few times for family reunions. This year I think the final count was 28. Three generations and we all had a good time together. Cooking for the crowd was easily done in the well equipped kitchen and the backyard grill. I even tried out the steam oven for baking bread on the one rainy day we had during our week stay. I liked the big table so we could all gather for dinner. Most of the other meals were done in shifts according to the different plans of family sub groups, but dinners together were such fun times to laugh together and catch up on the lives and interests of far flung family members.
The owners were helpful with suggestions on things to do and see. They continually make improvements on this rental. The separate ice maker machine was kept busy! The new outside seating areas are very attractive and made for an additional gathering spot for cousins to talk and chat together. I loved the new mosaic back splash behind the stove. It was nice to look at when I was the designated breakfast cook. The stove top grill is fantastic! I wish I had one on my home stove.
As usual, I like the close proximity to the beach. The supplied beach chairs are handy so I don’t have to bring ones from home. Thanks Mary Ann and Tom for letting us use your house for our family reunion.
Stayed June, 2021
This home provided the best vacation my family has had in years. It was perfect for a large family because is provided both privacy and plenty of spaces to be together. "Third from the beach" is accurate. It is only a few steps from the sand. Close enough to easily return to house to use the restroom. I highly recommend!
Stayed June, 2021
Mary and Tom, our host are incredible. They were very accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions. They are also flexible with check-in and check-out time, which was extremely helpful. The place was very clean and had all of the necessities for a few night stay.
About the house, the house is next to the beach (just few feet). You will feel like you are at your own home.
Yo don’t need to bring anything for the beach like chairs , beach tent, beach toys for the kids.
There are almost 40+ games for kids and they have mini library at home.
Thank you Mary and Tom.
Stayed June, 2021
This house was perfect for a weekend away with my girls. The house was clean and spacious. It is so close to the beach with chairs for renters to use. Tom and Mary Ann were amazing hosts and truly went above and beyond. Would absolutely recommend this house for your next trip to LBI!
