About Courtney and Nick Polidori

Nick and Courtney Polidori became primary caretakers of their family beach house in 2014. They and their two boys live at the beach for part of the summer ever year and enjoy hosting family and friends, boating, going to the beach, riding bicycles on the Ventnor boardwalk, and visiting Custard's Last Stand. Their children enjoy local sailing lessons, marine science camps, and visiting the boardwalk in Ocean City. They are very grateful that Nick's grandparents bought the home and look forward to enjoying many decades "down the shore" with their family and friends.

Courtney and Nick Polidori purchased this house in 2004

Why Courtney and Nick Polidori chose Ventnor City

Nick's grandparents purchased the home in 2004, after searching for the "perfect" beach house for more than a decade. When Nick's grandmother walked into the sunlit home, she knew she found the place where she could spend her twilight years watching the sunsets with her family. Over the next 10 years, the grandparents spent many summers and weekends with their son, grandson, and great-grandsons. Although Nick's grandmom passed away, her family still celebrates her memory by thinking of her often at the beach house. Shortly after Nick's grandfather turned 90 years old, he passed the responsibilities and care of the beach house to his capable grandson, Nick.

What makes this house unique

The Sunhouse is truly a retreat from the stress and fast-pace of everyday life. From soft, golden sunrises to the luminous, lavender sunsets, you will feel at peace with the rhythms of nature and the tides every day when you live on Ventnor Bay. From the deck you can view the diverse wildlife of the Jersey short, including white heron, seagulls, crabs, and fish. The kitchen and family rom offers expansive views of the bay so you can feel like you're on vacation even if you're cooking dinner, reading on the couch, or cleaning up. The dining room is decorated with a sparkling crystal chandelier and an exotic wood table so you have the option of formal meals for your family and friends. The garage and closets offer plenty of space to store your beach toys and bags, while the private outdoor shower with hot water makes it fun to rinse the salt water from your body after a long day at the beach.

On the second floor, your guests can choose from 4 bedrooms that offer a variety of comfortable sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom has bay views and a balcony. There is also a Loch Ness monster themed bathroom with a tub that the kids will love, as well as a large laundry room and closet with your linens. The floor is soft carpeting throughout.

On the third floor suite, the open floor plan invites you and your young children to stay in the same room. There are sweeping views of the bay as well as a balcony. The lovely mermaid themed bathroom has a tub and closet with your linen.

Great property and convenient location.

We had beautiful weather and a great experience for our annual golf trip. The Sunhouse on Ventnor Bay was perfect for us and everything was as expected from descriptions and pictures. Thank you to Courtney and Nick for renting us the property!

Beautiful Bay Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion in the winter. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show. It was very spacious and even with our large group did not feel crowded. It is very well taken care of and has everything you would possibly need. Our only recommendations for the future would be to buy a couple of air mattresses and insulate the balcony door in the room on the 2nd. That room is beautiful but freezing. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend and would definitely recommend this home to a friend!

Excellent getaway by the bay

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a wedding we attended in Atlantic City. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get to the event easily. The house was great with lots of big rooms and comfortable beds. But the back dock and bay views were the best. Gorgeous sunsets and peaceful reeds all around. It was lovely. Thanks Courtney and Nick!

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a house on the water to accommodate a large group of people and one that’s in close proximity to the strip, this is the house for you! Only about a 5-10 minute drive to the strip depending on where you want to go and the house had more than enough room to accommodate myself and 14 other people. I would definitely recommend this house!
