About Owner Charlie

Call me anytime, we built the 'Shack' new in 2005. My grandparents are from the area and I knew the beauty that was there in the salt marshes and waterways.

Owner Charlie purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner Charlie chose New Jersey

Cause it's beautiful, and different. Alive with migrating birds, Red Knots, Snow geese, and other wildlife, otters, muskrats, Bald eagles, I've seen a Golden eagle there.

What makes this house unique

Has docks for your boat, boats including PWC ride on docks. Contact me if you want to bring your boats and skis.

Great 'Hideout'

Natures getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the "shack"! Very peaceful and secluded and the owner, Charlie, was very helpful and accommodating! If possible you should attempt to bring some sort of watercraft for fishing or other recreational purposes as the green head flies can be a little pesky close to shore at certain times of the day. Overall it was a fantastic getaway! I would definitely rent from this owner again!

Very peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at the "Shack". We enjoyed watching the Ospreys and Bald Eagles fish and chase each other as well as star gazing at night on the dock! The peace and quiet was wonderful! No cars or sirens just the wind and waves!! We kayaked daily in the creek and the Perch fishing was great!! Went to AC for the annual Airshow. What a treat. All in all it was one of the best vacations to date. Thanks for sharing this secluded and peaceful place.

the house is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was ready for us with everything that was needed for our stay. My family really enjoyed fishing off the dock. We caught enough fish to have lunch one day for the 8 of us. Your neighbors are great people, they invited us to dinner and we all had a blast. Thanks for the use of you home. It was a home away from home

Had a great time at the shack. The house was grea

  • 3 of 5

Had a great stay. The only problem is the septic system. The tank needs to be replaced. It leaks and the smell and the Flys can be very very overwhelming at high tide.

Owner's Response: Traveler called me and reported that drains in house were not draining, within an hour I had a professional there to diagnose problem, (I also dropped everything and was physically on my way there until my professional called and told me he was there and the problem was corrected). Drain line was clogged. Professional cleared line and system was back in use. As far as the flies go, traveler must have left the screen doors open their entire stay, while they were fishing on the docks.

Peaceful and Relaxing - Unique place

  • 5 of 5

I live in Los Angeles and traveled back to NJ to visit family in South Jersey. I found this place which seemed a little out of the way and figured it would be a nice change of pace and give all of us a chance to spend some time together. The owner seems like a great guy and was very helpful in answering all of my questions and providing advice. We kayaked up the creek (be sure to go at high tide) and saw several bald eagles. Walks and just laying on the dock provide an amazingly quiet experience where all you hear are birds, the lapping of the water, and the occasional whoosh of a bald eagle flying over head. I've been all over the world and have never spent time in a place like this, very unique and different. Beautiful. If you're looking for something off the beaten path and unlike anywhere you've stayed. I'd highly recommend this spot.

A Very Private and Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at " The Shack". We had so much fun just being right on the water.

We brought our Jon boat and jet ski so we could fish and crab. We loved the house. The crows nest was awesome. We could see fireworks on the 4th all over the place.

We visited the local area and toured the oyster docks in Bivalve.

We had the best, most relaxing summer vacation. Wish it could have lasted longer.

Thanks so much to the homeowners for sharing their beautiful summer home.

Location

If you are a birder, or just lover of nature, you will not encounter many houses like this available for you to rent. Red Knots migrate thru here in spring, snow geese in winter, horseshoe crabs, etc......
