About the property

3 bedroom, 1bath, no streets to cross to the beach. (2nd floor unit)

Looking for a getaway in a quaint and quiet beach town? Then head north on Long Beach Island to beautiful Barnegat Light!

To save us both time - June to September only, no pets, no smoking.

This home is located centrally in Barnegat Light. Walk up the street to our quiet, guarded beach. We provide four beach badges and four beach chairs. Walk right down the street to the bay - here you will find Viking Village which provides boutique shopping, a coffee shop, fish market, fruit and vegetable stand, and a take-out or dine al fresco restaurant. It’s also fun to watch the commercial fishing boats bring in their latest catch or you can go fishing or take a Sunset Cruise on Miss Barnegat Light.

Use the bikes provided to explore all Barnegat Light has to offer: restaurants (Mustache Bills was featured on Diners and Drive Ins, Kubel’s was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown), nature trails, ice cream parlors, boat rentals, a grocery store, bay beach (here you can launch kayaks, small boats or stand up paddle boards), tennis courts, playgrounds and more. You can bike or walk to just about everything in town. And don’t forget to climb the highlight of our town, “Old Barney.” The views of the ocean, bay and island from the top of the Barnegat Lighthouse are amazing!

After a fun-filled day, retire back to your quiet home. Take a quick shower outside to rinse off all the sand. The home is one story up and provides three bedrooms (bring your own linens), a full bath, kitchen and open concept living with a combined living/dining area. Sit on one of the two decks while unwinding and listening to the waves crashing.

We rent from Sunday to Sunday during the Summer - that means you get to avoid heavy Saturday turnover traffic. In the fall after Labor Day we switch to Tuesday to Tuesday - so you can rent for just a long weekend if needed.

About Ken & Pat Emens

Ken & Pat Emens Retired and live a few blocks away from this house. So, are generally around to address any problems.

Ken & Pat Emens purchased this house in 1970

Why Ken & Pat Emens chose Barnegat Light

My grandfather had the house built in 1960. It was the family beach house.

My brother and I bought it in 1970. I was up, he was down.

It was my family's Summer beach house from 1970 to 2003. It was a wonderful place for our three kids to spend the Summer while growing up. It has been continuously updated over the years - kitchen, floors, walls, decks etc.

We love Barnegat Light, so gave up the upland house and built a place nearby in 2003 for our retirement. Kept our half of this place as a rental.

My brother (also now retired) and his wife still use the downstairs. They are usually only there on weekends.

What makes this house unique

It is a comfortable classic place on a street with a very nice beach. It is all that is needed for a great vacation. Nice house. Nice street. Nice beach. Nice town. Nice island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great staying here again, in this house! Been quite awhile, as we had many people and had to move to a bigger house on 16th St. for a few years to fit our needs. Times change and now this place was perfect again for me, my husband & 4 yr old son & my parents. Just the way we remembered it - cute, clean & beachy! Will be back.

Great time in Barnegat Light!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Barnegat Light after vacationing on LBI for the past 20 years. We loved the house and how we were on the top floor with two decks to lounge on after a day at the beach. There was plenty of space both inside and out to store all of our stuff. The backyard is great for games, we played bocce ball and can jam after the beach. I loved the bike rack for our bikes and the outside shower (a must on our vacations) was perfect with a nice dressing area. Nice quiet section of the island.

Beach block rental near Barnegat Lighthouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this home away from home. We traveled with another couple and our adult son; it was the perfect size for us. The non-believers about how refreshing the well set-up outdoor shower would be were soon taking all their showers there! The well appointed kitchen allowed us to easily entertain friends for brunch and a family birthday celebration. Catching the sunrise was easy being so close to the beautiful beach and sunsets were just a block in the other direction. Being September it was very quiet but with the house set back from the street I think that would be the case even in the summer months. Furniture was comfortable which isn't always true. We would love to rent another time when we return to LBI! Being one flight up was great for breezes and we all did fine with the stairs.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a small family. Short walk to the beach and very quiet part of the island. The house is stocked with everything you could need- even a rolling pin! We stayed comfortably with four adults and two kids. Two decks and space outback for the kids to play. Tons of parking , which is a plus while at the beach.

Viking village is just a block away with cute shops, ice cream, and delicuous coffee. Close to the bay swimming area and boat docks.

We had a minor issue with the wifi and Ken immediately took care of it, he's literally a phone call away. Gave us lots of inside travel tips as well.

Highly recommend this home if you want a quiet getaway. The block is quiet and safe. Beach was never crowded! Amusement rides and nightlife just a short drive away.
