How We Got Started

We bought my family’s home located on Long Beach Island, NJ est. in 1958. In 2006 we got married on our beach and thought we should share it with others year round. In 2008 renovated the house and added on specifically to cater towards destination weddings and multigenerational family stays, and for large groups of travelers. We rent for vacations, homeschoolers, reunions, wedding stay, bachelorette parties, retreats, business meetings and holidays. We named the house, “The Wed and Bed”, when marketing for destination wedding stays, and “Beach House Retreats on LBI, NJ” for year round stays.

We live in a lock out portion of the home and offer event planning if needed for a milestone event while in town. We help families get the most out of their vacation $ by providing coupons and knowledge on the best deals and times to do Island activities.

Our Ideal Customer

We book for vacations, bachelorette weekends, weddings stays, business meetings, retreats of all kinds.

I am currently looking for more teachers of various kinds to round out our retreat offerings. I believe with our home and your meetings we can both expand our offerings, and help others learn something new, or focus on a new approach to a healthy life.

What a great day trip or half day when you go here with the kiddies! They will love you and you will have ball! From babies to the elders it is an easy day. The park is nice a small so your not doing a ton of walking that lets you relax but get some exercise while enjoying the water adventures. They have food and snacks to get you feed or pack a lunch. In the spring sometimes you can get a discount through school fund raisers. So grab your towel and lotion and GOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
