About Michael Mayo

My wife and I purchased this home in February of 2002. My parents started taking us to the beach for the summer in the late 60's and we have done so since. My career took us to many cities and part of why we purchased was to have a place our kids can call home and they do, it is now an part of their lives. Each year we have a family reunion, a college reunion and are long visiting guest have become extended family. Martha, my wife, christened the home the Mayo Clinic because of our name naturally as well as the relaxing and therapeutic results of a stay. Each year our guest write there experiences in the homes summer diary. Each night we walk to the bay for a Key West like sunset type gathering with friends and neighbors.

Michael Mayo purchased this house in 2003

Why Michael Mayo chose Surf City

It was captivating, the home sprawled a double lot and the small business owners, professional landscapers, had created a country English garden setting. As a boy, when my family was still renting, I used to look at properties like this with a goal in mind, get one. By older brother, a small business owner on the Island, called me to say get here now to see this property.

What makes this house unique

This home is spacious, comfortable with a layout designed to entertain in or out. There is a outside entertainment area with comfortable seating, cooking, dining seating and hot tub. A residential street with year round and summer residents. Convenient to the beach and bay, dining and shopping. And, minutes from the bridge so when you arrive you are home. Great location for biking, boating and kayaking.

Fabulous Week on LBI at the "Mayo Clinic"

  • 5 of 5

The "Mayo Clinic" proved to be a great place for our family to spend the week. Great proximity to the bay, with a one block walk to gorgeous sunsets and a one block walk to the park. The home was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was expanded and had all modern amenities; it was well stocked and easy to cook in. The back deck, patio, garden seating and hot tub all contributed to a relaxing back yard experience. Plantings and trees also helped with privacy. Neighbors were quiet and pleasant as well. Finally, the Mayo family was very easy to communicate with - very reliable in both responding promptly, with accurate representations, and with making arrangements. We definitely want to go back. LBI is a terrific place for a family vacation and this was a great house to enjoy it all.

Beautiful spacious home with such a cozy feel!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the "Mayo Clinic". There was so much room for family and friends. It was clean and had all the amenities we could ask for-great kitchen, eating area indoors and outdoors, outside shower a plus and hot tub a great bonus. Loved meeting neighbors each night at the end of the street watching the breath taking sunsets over the bay. Extra special to be able to bring our furry family member, Cozmo, with us! About a 7-8 minute walk to beach which is further than we r used to but with our older children it was never a problem.

Just got back from a week in Surf City. The Mayo Clinic beach house is ideally located. Owners Martha and Michael are thoughtful, considerate hosts. Everything is exactly as pictured and we couldn't be happier!
