My family and I enjoyed our stay at this condo. We loved having a full kitchen to cook meals and the spacious deck was great to eat and relax! The weather was too windy for the beach during the second half of the week, sand was blowing everywhere, so we were extremely grateful to have the pool available! The kids spent most of their time there. I can't stress enough the convienence of the location to the beach, boardwalk, grocery store, we walked everywhere!! Also, the convienence of having a rental stocked with beach chairs, beach toys, carts, boogie boards. Very nice gesture from the owner. We look forward to returning next year!
We have had family vacations near this location for the past 50 years and we were not disappointed with this find! We were greeted at this new location by Kathy, a wonderful and very accommodating owner, At the outset, she was concerned for our comfort and satisfaction. The condo was very clean and we particularly enjoyed the porch when we were not spending time at the beach. Will be happy to return to this comfortable condo!
This is our favorite vacation location. The cleanliness and warm atmosphere is perfect for us. The stunning beach and boardwalk are 2 blocks away with easy access. The wrap around porch is our favorite place to sit out at night and take in the ocean air. The heated pool was always clean and well maintained. We can't wait to come back next year!
Our family has stayed at this Condo for 3 years. It is clean, fully stocked, and sleeps approximately six people. The beds are very comfortable. The condo is very convenient to the beach, boardwalk, and various attractions at Wildwood which are all within walking distance. The owner is very helpful and wants her guests to have an enjoyable experience. The best features are the pool and the spacious porch where we spend most of our time. We particularly enjoy playing games and eating our meals on the porch as well as watching the sun rise. The pool area is also kept clean and has a shower and grill which can be used as well. We keep returning to this condo because we enjoy the overall experience. Thank you Kathy for your hospitality!
A friend and I rented this place in August of 2017. We both had our kids, for a total of 5. The place is advertised as accommodating up to 7 but it was already fairly crowded at 5. So it's definitely on the small side with each bedroom being pretty densely packed. There was a roll-out bed but no place to put it in any of the bedrooms. So my son ended up sleeping on the "living room" couch all week. The living room being pretty small as well, it meant that he would constantly be subject to late-night/early-morning traffic in very close quarters. Not really great for him. **Note that since I was with a friend, however, both of us ended up using 2 of the 3 bedrooms. A "couple" would use a single bedroom, leaving that other bedroom for a 3rd kid, for instance. So keep that in mind.
I was surprised to read other reviews raving about how clean the place was. Maybe our expectations were too high, but we all pretty much agreed that this place was really not all that clean. Maybe because those reviews tend to be a little older and the place hasn't been maintained as much in recent years?? I'm not really sure. But the bathroom/shower, most of all, definitely needs a good update. It wasn't particularly pleasant to take a shower there.
A couple more negative comments, unfortunately. The deck was very large, which was great. But unlike what the pictures show, it was covered with large rugs. When they were dry, they were fine. But after a rainy day, they would get soaked and would take over a day to dry out. The feeling of walking on a soaked rug was also not very pleasant, to say the least. It's also probably not great for the wood either.
And finally, although it says that all sorts of beach items are included, many were broken and useless. For instance, we couldn't find a good umbrella set out of the 4-5 in the rack. They were all broken and we ended up having to rent them at the beach. The strollers and carrying carts also all seemed to be in pretty bad shape and we never even tried to use them.
Now, ON THE POSITIVE SIDE.
The place IS close to the beach and boardwalk. We pretty much left our cars parked all week, except for the occasional activities we went to. The beach chairs were all great and in very good condition, as well as the surf boards. And there were plenty of those. We also ended up using the condo pool a lot more than we ever expected. Both of our families had a great time there.
I will end with some personal suggestions. If this was my place, I'd repaint the whole thing white and remove any "personal" items. The white paint would brighten up an otherwise very dark condo. I'd redo the whole bathroom, removing the wooden floors and replacing it with tiles. I would also remove half the stuff in the condo, since the place is already crammed up. Many items were just using needed space. Especially on the deck; I'd get rid of all these broken items and racks and shelves and, most importantly, I'd remove those rugs!
I don't like writing too bad of a review, especially when it can substantially hurt the owner. This place could be really nice but it currently needs some attention. As it is right now, It doesn't look like the pictures above anymore.
We spent a week June 2014, two adults and three teenagers. Although the rooms are on the smaller side the location,porch, cleanliness,pool,beach accessories that are included in the rental made an amazing vacation for my family. The beach,shopping, basketball courts, bike path and boardwalk are all in walking distance. Thank you for for a great place. We have lots of memories.
I stayed at this property with my family (including 2 kids) and another family, with a young child. The property is clean and well maintained. Bed sheets are provided and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, utensils, you name it! The apartment is not big - the kitchen is a decent size, but the rooms are rather small. This was not a problem for us whatsoever, though, because we didn't spend much time indoors, but still worth noting. The best feature of the property is the wrap-around deck. It is HUGE and we spend much of our time there, when not on the beach or elsewhere around Wildwood. There is a large table, where the seven of us could comfortably have our meals, a great double-lounge chair and several other chairs around. There is also a great variety of beach equipment provided, free of charge: beach chairs (really good ones!), beach carts, coolers, etc. There are air conditioners in every room, as well as fans so it's easy to stay cool. There is also a great DVD/tapes collection, with a lot of recent movies for all ages, for those rainy days. The location of the property is pretty great - it's very close to the entrance onto the Boardwalk, but far enough away from all the noise. We were able to walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to go, saving on gas and parking fees. Oh, and there is also a pool on the property. It's not big and we didn't spend much time there (with all the waves to catch!), but it's still a nice option. All-in-all, a GREAT vacation and we will definitely look to stay at this property again next time we are planning a trip to Wildwood. Many, many thanks to Kathy for making our trip a total success!!
