About Duane & Kathy Watlington
My wife and I purchased the home in May, 2018. My wife grew up vacationing on LBI and we look forward to our time there throughout the year. Its our happy place. In addition to this home we also own a duplex, on an Ocean Block in Ship Bottom. Over the last 4 summers, we met many wonderful families who also share our love for the beach and LBI. We respect the privacy and space of the people who share our home each week. When booking weeks, our goal is to get low key, families that love LBI and will enjoy the house

Duane & Kathy purchased this house in 2018

Why Duane Watlington chose Brant Beach
This property is a dream come true for my wife. We spent the first 8 summers of my children's lives vacationing in a house just a stone throw away from this location. Some day we dreamed of owning a little piece of this relaxing island paradise and in 2018 our dream came true! We like this area for its beautiful wide beaches, quiet family friendly neighborhood, and convenient, central location. Easy access on and off the Island is also a big plus and now we have the LBI Shuttle...what else could you ask for?

What makes this house unique
Once you enter the top living floor, you will see why we chose this house. Watch the sun come up out of the ocean! Panoramic views of our pristine sugar sand beaches, with blue ocean waters. Then, when its time to go inside, relax with all of the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. There is nothing better than opening the windows and getting the ocean breeze and salt air smell inside the house. Except when its really hot and the AC feels just a little bit nicer. Park the car and enjoy your beach vacation down the Jersey Shore!

Repeat Renters

We previously stayed in this home - please see my review dated June 27, 2019 as everything I wrote still applies. Since then, Duane and Kathy have purchased new furniture and reconfigured the main living room. It is a very nice improvement. It is important to note that in both years our security deposit was returned promptly and in full. Years ago we had an owner on LBI who kept our security deposit by falsely accusing us of damaging the property. Duane has ALWAYS been top-notch to deal with and responds to questions and requests promptly. We intend to go back again in the future - which is the highest praise of all.

perfect vacation home

We love this house! Right on the beach, all of the necessary (and unnecessary) amenities, fabulous owners who are very responsive and considerate! Couldn't ask for more! Will come back every year!

Spectacular views, Wonderful hosts

Our hearts broke when we had to cancel our trip last year due to COVID, but Duane and Kathy opened their home to us this year and it was phenomenal. Location is perfect, views ethereal, beach amenities great. We look forward to this being our new family tradition!

Beautiful May Beach Week

We just returned from a very relaxing week at this house on the ocean. The home has gorgeous views and super easy access to the beach. Everything was updated and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the open floor plan in the living area, the smart tvs, and access to the beach gear and bikes in the garage. I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful home!

We rented Duane & Kathy's place the first two weeks in March. We needed to get away somewhere safe where we could work the first week and relax the second week. The place was perfect in every way. The views are breathtaking! The house is immaculately clean & well-maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! The bed was extremely comfortable. The location was perfect, especially in the off-season, still in a pandemic we were able to go off island easily. Duane was responsive to some questions before we arrived and reached out in the first day or two to make sure everything was ok. We knew he was just a text away if we needed anything. I would highly recommend and will be going back!!

OMG the views!!

My husband and I rented this house purely for it's inspirational panoramic ocean views so we could attend a 6 day zoom event! It didn't disappoint! It's not a house we would have normally rented during peak summer season (a little cost prohibited for just the two of us) but this was exactly what I envisioned I wanted to book, an ocean front house when I knew our event would be in the off season! We practically never left the house other than to walk directly out to the beach to catch some amazing ocean air! Waking up each morning, from the master bedroom (if the door is open) you can see incredible ocean sunrises, or step out into the living room to take it all in or better yet step out to your balcony. It never ever gets boring! The house itself was nicely equipped with the basics of what you'll need but there is not a keurig so be sure to pack that if you desire. The open concept allows for views of the Ocean from everywhere! Living room had really nice white leather reclining sofas but there is a small drawback, there is only one bathroom on this level and it's in the master bedroom. No issue for us but I can see how a family/group sharing the space might want to be aware of this in advance as they may need to go downstairs. The other small drawback is no direct access to the lowest level (garage) where the Laundry machines are located. Again not an issue for us during our stay but I can see how that might be a bit of knowledge share for future reference. For me, I had to allow myself to outweigh those two cons of design for the awesome ocean view this house has to offer. I'd come back with others and just suck it up (there are bigger problems in life lol). Directly out the door you can walk right onto the beach and that is an incredible advantage over many ocean front homes in the area. We frequent LBI in the summer so that would be amazing to enjoy. Downstairs on the 1st level are 3 bedrooms, and that is where the full bathroom is located. There is another bathroom in the garage but we didn't need to access it. We never needed to go into the garage but we saw it had plenty of beach related items for your beach going needs (I'm assuming it's there for guests). Oh and the best part of this house (aside from the ocean view) is the host, Duane, he is absolutely on point with responses and is the best host! Huge kuddos for having an awesome house that we were inspired by, and can't wait to return to one day, next time with friends or family hopefully. Thank you again for your hospitality!

I hate to write this review.... because I don't want anyone to know about this GEM so I can keep it all to myself! The house itself is gorgeous and beautifully decorated with a welcoming, beachy theme. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need for cooking and grilling. Great location! But the best part... THAT VIEW!! I couldn't wait to wake up each morning and walk out the bedroom door to that gorgeous ocean view! Because of the smart design of the home, the view just wraps around you! Whether you're dining inside, cooking or lounging on the 2 (reclining) couches you feel like you're on the beach because the expansive ocean view is always right there! I've rented on LBI for years and I've never wanted to spend so much time at the house. I didn't want to leave the deck that felt like it was right on the sand!! We absolutely loved the house and the owner was excellent to work with. We found our new spot down the shore and can't wait to return for years to come!
