If you're suddenly in need of a beach-side spot for a big reunion of any kind, look no further. This Long Beach Township, New Jersey five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath is currently renting for $1,259 a night, and has two wraparound decks.

New owners just redecorated the house—which sports a vaguely lighthouse-inspired design— with all new furniture and a fresh paint job. Able to sleep 14, the retreat features an open plan family room and fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen with vaulted ceilings. Many of the bedrooms provide direct access to the deck areas, which are outfitted with lounging options galore, as well as room for dining. 

Additional amenities include five televisions, a Weber grill, two outdoor showers, beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas...and an elevator. Private parking is available for six cars, and when you want to venture out, the compound is walking distance to the Bayview Park complex, home to various ball courts, a playground, summer programming and concerts and guarded beaches with calmer waters.  For a nice meal out, head to the nearby restaurants of Long Beach Island.
