Description

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.

Guest access

FYI - you'll be staying with me! And there may be other guests here as well. It's all good. The bathroom on the 2nd floor is yours exclusively during your stay. Your room is on the 2nd floor. You'll be sharing the downstairs and common areas with me.
There is no private entrance.

Interaction with guests

You will enjoy as much or as little interaction as you wish...
I pride myself on my "Local Knowledge". I can recommend restaurants, casinos, local attractions, bars & nightlife.
If I'm not too busy and the weather cooperates, I will give you a short orientation tour of the town and island. We may even be able to arrange a scenic boat ride!

The neighborhood

The Inn of the Gull is located in the lovely town of Ventnor, just south of exciting Atlantic City.
I'm directly across the street from the Intracoastal Waterway and only 3 short blocks to the beach & boardwalk.
There are free concerts on the Ventnor beach every Sunday night this summer. Just a few blocks from the house.
You can also walk to the scenic Ventnor Pier and stand over the water.
Ventnor has plenty of great dining options. Italian, Sushi, Mexican, and great breakfast café's too. Many are walking distance from the house.
There are no bars in Ventnor, but all restaurants allow you to bring in your adult beverages. There are package good stores close by for wine beer or liquor.
The town of Margate is the next town south. Nice beaches, great bars & restaurants + Lucy the Elephant in Margate.

Getting around

If you prearrange, I'll pick you up at the airport, train station or bus terminal for a nominal fee.

The house is 2 blocks from the bus route to Atlantic City. Buses run frequently. The 505 runs to AC or Margate. Also Jitney service just started.
I may also be able to provide a ride for you if I'm around. don't be afraid to ask!
If you bring your bicycles, you can keep them in my secure garage. I may be able to loan you a bike or two... if they're available and in working order. we have a great bike rental shop in town. Tell them I sent you for a special rate.

We are on an island and everything is relatively close.

Free concerts on the beach:

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 perhaps..next time.

Jim was incredibly friendly and helpful with all aspects of our trip. He greeted us with a quick tour and was ready to answer any questions we had. My husband and I even had our own bathroom which was great! We said we wanted Sushi for dinner and he gave us a great recommendation. Definitely our best Airbnb experience. We will see you next year Jim!

We enjoyed our stay at Jim's house very much. Ventnor is a pleasant town, away from the casino crowds but a short drive if you want that. The house was comfortable, very clean and had every amenity we could want. It was also a nice walk to the beach and to nearby restaurants. Jim was very helpful with information about getting around, places to eat- and we enjoyed good conversation with him and his roommate. We highly recommend this Inn and would definitely stay there again.

Booked a weekend getaway with my sister as her graduation gift. Jim greeted us as soon as we arrived, and graciously carried our belongings up to our private room. It was super convenient that we had a bathroom right next door. Everything was clean and the house is perfectly tucked into the quiet neighborhood of Ventnor just minutes from the shore. My sister and I enjoyed a night in AC, and a separate day in OCNJ. Jims place was perfect for our outings to both places, since his house is conveniently located. His roommate Rob even drove us into AC for the night. What a treat that Jim even took us on a short boat ride on the bay for our last day there. SO relaxing! Jim is very welcoming and a super sweet soul! Thanks for all your local knowledge Jim! We look forward to staying with you again!
