The space

Dear fans & friends of Inn of the Gull,
Stay with me & enjoy all the Jersey shore has to offer. The Fall & Winter seasons have a lot to offer here in South Jersey. But summer is the best!
I'm located in a small, quiet town about a mile from exciting Atlantic City, and only 2 miles to the nearest casino. I'm just 3 short blocks from Ventnor's beautiful beaches, and our boardwalk is perfect for quiet walks and bike rides. I'm close to fine local restaurants, clubs, casinos & all local attractions. Ocean City NJ, America's Family Resort is just minutes away. It's a quick, scenic drive to Wildwood or Cape May. And you can enjoy beautiful sunsets on the bay.
There are plenty of restaurants, coffee, and ice cream shops close by.
The rates are high at the casinos. My price is reasonable, and you'll enjoy Ventnor.

Your accommodations:
remember, you'll be staying with me... no private entrance, but you'll feel like part of the family

For one person or a couple, I have a private bedroom w/ closet & dresser. The room is on the 2nd floor. The upstairs bathroom is exclusively yours during your stay. The bathroom is down the hall from your room. Ceiling fan + central air. TV in the room. Comfortable queen size bed.

There is an additional downstairs bathroom + an outside shower for after the beach.
I provide beach chairs, beach towels, & beach tags during the summer season. Towels & linens are provided, + use of washer & dryer. WiFi internet access. Central A/C
(set it to your comfort) & gas fireplace. Use of full kitchen.

We're looking forward to a great year here in South Jersey. The ocean & beach will be warm and our restaurants and attractions are going Jersey Strong.
Margaritaville has opened at Resorts Casino,and there's plenty of free festivals & events lined up for every season.
Guests who are arriving by plane, train or bus (ACY, PHL, EWR): I am happy to be your taxi service for a comparable rate. Inquire in advance....if I'm available, I'll pick you up/drop you off.
The local bus (the 505) to Atlantic City runs 2 blocks from the house. I will take you on a short "orientation tour" of the island if my schedule permits. We can often provide transportation for you during your stay - cheaper than a taxi.
If the weather is nice & we're not too busy, we'll take a boat cruise on the bay.

For security reasons, I prefer guests who have an AirBnB profile with photos. If you're brand new to AirBnB, please follow the references directions -- its easy to set up through Air BnB.

You will find that this quiet getaway is just the kind of vacation you are looking for. I just stayed the weekend with my sisters and I wished we'd been able to stay longer. Jim is very welcoming and even provided us with beach tags and chairs! The locations is in walking distance from the beach and a short drive away from Atlantic City. He really made my first Airbnb experience a great one! I would go back again in a heartbeat.

Jim's place is clean, cozy, comfortable and quiet. It is a short drive or walk to a quaint little town center. We would return.

Jim and Rob were fantastic hosts. We had a last minute request. They accepted us right away, and let us check out in the afternoon which was really kind of them. We felt like staying at our uncle's home. The house was super clean and nice, and was just a few minutes away from the restaurants and boardwalk. Jim was really helpful and offered great suggestions for breakfast. Definitely a great place to stay if visiting Ventnor City or Ocean City.

Jim was so courteous and friendly. He welcomed us into his home and showed us around. I was skeptical of a B&B as this was our first experience. We felt right at home. It was super clean and I would definitely recommend Jim! If we are in the area again, we would revisit!

Jim's place is full of light, comfortable, clean and quiet. He is exceptionally hospitable and helpful. We were grateful to be able to use his kitchen freely to make breakfast. He never made us feel that we had to keep to a schedule..flexible on check in and check out times. We attended the Garden State Film Fest, so didn't have time to take advantage of the proximity to the boardwalk, but time.
