BARNEGAT, NJ – Recent retirees Moe and Susan Podoba are the new kids on the block at Escapes Ocean Breeze, Ocean County’s premier active adult community, and they couldn’t be more excited. “We were house hunting throughout the area, and after seeing the location and quality of homes at Escapes Ocean Breeze, we knew that was exactly where we wanted to be,” Moe said. “We moved in earlier this year and are delighted to see what the future holds for us here.”
The couple always wanted to move to South Jersey and felt Manahawkin was the perfect location. “Escapes is in a beautiful area that is not too far south, and conveniently located near shopping and all the major roads,” Moe added.
Moe and Susan rave about all the resort-inspired amenities available at Escapes, including the Lifestyle Pavilion, which offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, Grand Ballroom and a sauna. Movies are shown in a screening room with a 120-inch theater screen and stadium seating. There are rooms for card games and billiards, as well as both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Tennis, basketball and bocce courts are also on‑site.
“The clubhouse is so spacious and great,” Moe added. “We recently had a hospitality brunch there and it was very nice. There is a great welcoming committee, too. Our neighbors who live here are part of the association and everyone takes turns at different functions.”
Escapes Ocean Breeze also offers more luxury standards than other community, according to Moe. “The warranty department is phenomenal too,” he added. “They constantly ask us if there is anything we need. Everyone here is just so great, from the design department to the foreman. They all know their respective businesses so well.”
The Podobas chose the Andalucia single-level 2-bedroom, 2-bath home design, which has just over 2,100 sq. ft. of living space with an added sunroom. “This home design offers everything a couple could want,” Moe added.
For prospective buyers, Moe offers the following advice: “Give this place a fair shot. Go around and look at the other places and I guarantee that you will come back and buy here.”
