About Matthew Arnett

We love this house. It is an original Brigantine Cape Cod that reminds us of a simpler time. When it was first built there were no houses on the other side of

Ocean Avenue, now it is four houses from the beach, but the walk is just as short. If you have a big family or you require lots of space maybe this won’t be for you. That’s ok, because we are looking for folks who will love staying in this beach cottage as much as we do. Work has forced us to move away, but we are looking to rent it so one day we can come back and enjoy it again. This place would be perfect for a non-smoking couple with maybe a couple of children.

Matthew Arnett purchased this house in 2001

Why Matthew Arnett chose Brigantine

Grab your board, your umbrella and one of our beach chairs and walk the short path to the best beach in South Jersey. When you come back enjoy a private outdoor shower with hot water and lunch straight off the grill of the brick barbecue.

What makes this house unique

Relax in the living room. Open the windows for sea breezes. Play some music. Enjoy a cold beverage served onto the bar from the kitchen. Watch a movie on the flat screen (DVD/HBO) or read a book. Sun yourself on two ocean view decks.

Delightful beach house.

  • 5 of 5

This rental is Goldilocks perfect. Not too big, not too small- just right. Very well maintained and very tastefully done. It's just off the beach by a short walk down the final road. Quiet neighborhood. Space in the back of the property for even bigger dogs. My favorite feature is the upstairs balcony deck with the trumpet vines. We hope to return again and again and again. Wonderfully done as always. Thanks you Matt & Barbara, for sharing your beach cottage with us.

Quiet, comfortable, pet friendly and very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to Brigantine. It was our first visit and we were delighted that we could bring my daughters Boston Terrier with us! The house was just the right size for us. Quiet street, one block away from the beach with lots of patio space to enjoy when we were not watching the waves. We walked the beach each morning and returned to lay in the sun and enjoy the sound of the surf.

When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the table and a basket of goodies not only for us but for our pet! We are not into the clubs, bars or crowded beaches and Brigantine was perfect for us.

The Acme was close for us to stock up on supplies and we enjoyed some of the local restaurants (Burger Bar has the best burgers, Richmonds has wonderful ice cream and Philadelphia Water ice and dinner at The Celler 32 was delicious).

The owners of the property were easily accessible before and during our visit! It was evident they take great care of the house and happy to have guests.

The description of the house was accurate and exactly what we expected. We would highly recommend this vacation home and if we have the opportunity to return, will certainly rent again!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Like the title says, this house was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for! It was close to everything Brigantine has to offer - restaurants, ice cream, mini golf, and we were only steps from the beach! We barely used the car to get anywhere, it was great. The house was the perfect size and had an ocean view from the bedroom deck. There isn't enough good things I can say about this rental. We will definitely be back and look forward to staying here time and time again.

This beach house MADE our summer.

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was perfect for my fiancé and I. We had more than enough room and the place was SPOTLESS. The outdoor shower is perfect for washing off after a nice long day at the beach... which, by the way, is a very short walk from the house. Night time is gorgeous, and cooled down enough that we could leave the screen doors open and catch the wonderful ocean breeze throughout the upper floor. The owners are very friendly and easy to deal with. We have never stayed anywhere that gave us a WELCOME BASKET (thank you again guys!!). My fiancé and I love to cook, and the kitchen was more than adequate. Although we don't have pets, it seems the owners are okay with you bringing your well behaved dogs (our cat Spencer was slightly upset that he couldn't come), and the fenced in yard I suspect would be perfect for them. We had 7 days of sunshine and couldn't be more pleased.. hoping it will be available if we go next year, this place has so much character! Five Stars.

Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely working of older and newer construction! Fine wood craftsmanship adorns many facets throughout this Brigantine cottage. The decor is inviting in its tasteful simplicity of art and color, inclusive of the beach motif coverlets. The fenced yard is welcoming and enjoyable. We, with our doggie, enjoyed basking in the warmth of august's sun and the coolness of its tranquil breezes. Talk about breezes- the remodeled second floor 'attic/loft' is outfitted with these two beautiful balcony/porches set across from each other in the front and back of the house. We enjoyed the refreshing summer air breezing through on most days. Oh, please take the owners' advice- 'everything you need is here...this is truly your vacation..' and it was! Extra blankets, luxurious linens, plenty of bath towels, comfy beds

and chairs, beautiful landscaping, scenic beach views- to name a few amenities. Yes, the beach IS just across the street beyond a few feet of homes. This feature was incredibly great for us! Let's not forget the food- Brigantine HOMEMADE bagels, Andre's grilled veggie antipasti, pizza, spaghetti and clams, broccoli di rabe (we love our greens), Pirate's Den's omelettes and pancakes.. On occasion, we prepared some meals in 'our' beach house kitchen. Although not too large, it is so wonderfully appointed with ample working counter space, toaster and coffee maker- just as the owners' description provides. We hope to visit again and suggest you come, too, and go bike riding next time! Thank you for sharing your beach home with us.
