This is one stylish spot for your LBI stay. Completely rebuilt a few years ago, this creative, coastal contemporary 2,200-square foot home is a modern family surf lodge!
Our guests actually encouraged us to start an Instagram account where we post many of their memories @ShipBottomFamilySurfLodge. Ideal for beach weeks with the family in the summer or if you are attending an LBI wedding or festival in the shoulder season.
Just two blocks off the beach, the three bedroom, three full baths has an epic view from the rooftop deck and great outside shower. Take a two block walk up to the beach where you can surf or paddleboard anywhere outside the flags. Kids can swim inside the flags on excellent sandbars. Two blocks in the other direction, and you’ve got a nice public crabbing and fishing area.
Inside the house, the wide open kitchen features soapstone countertops and island, retro appliances, and dining area for a large family on a cherry table. Speakers throughout the whole first floor bump your tunes. Please be advised, there is NO central air. We do have three window units though.
The fenced in backyard is idyllic and private, shaded with a fantastic maple tree. Including a nice sized back deck, gas grill, and a large table offer plenty of space for clambakes. There’s even a dog door for well-behaved pooches.
The master bedroom was custom built for relaxation, featuring mahogany walls, queen sized canopy bed, two ceiling fans, luxury bathroom, and two walk-in closets.
Take your morning oj or coffee and step out the French doors onto the hardwood deck surrounded by sunflowers. Keep the doors open at night for a cool breeze. Bugs have never been a problem.
The second bedroom works for a family with a small child, featuring AC, full and single bed, and a large walk in closet leading to a bathroom of reclaimed wood and tile. Downstairs, in the third bedroom, the kids love the pyramid-style bunk beds, single top, full bottom. Room also has closet and AC.
The large cedar -walled bathroom downstairs boasts an antique claw-foot bath tub. After a long day at he beach, sink into the wrap around couch, in the casual living room. It has a comfy beach vibe with tv, internet, DVD, and AC.
Having additional guests for the weekend? The rear living room has a Queen futon and can serve as a private fourth bedroom. Just a half block away, you will find The Local, the amazing new LBI eatery, with outdoor seating for morning coffee, pastries, breakfast sandwiches, juice bar, prepared foods and market. Another block away is the Greenhouse Cafe with award-wining chowder and Woody’s, famouse for burgers and ice cream.
Want to surf? Rent boards a block away or have a certified local instructor meet you right at the house! Also within a short walk is mini-golf, local library, an arcade, convenience store, and Lex Mex.
For those intrested, the home is also solar-powered with a vegetable garden out back and has many other eco-friendly features. It’s a unique house designed with a style and love, sure to provide a week of quality family time on Long Beach Island that no one will soon be forgetting.
