Why Diane Herman, Broker Associate, Don Martin Realty/Don Martin Vacation Rentals chose Wildwood Crest
We're not just rentals here. We are the only EXCLUSIVE property management agency on the island. Experience the difference! FOR THE VACATIONER: At Don Martin Vacation Rentals, we place the emphasis on the vacationer. How we differ from other agencies, is that we handle any situation that may occur, providing you with a 24 hour emergency contact number as well. With other agencies, they will tell you that they need to contact the owner to correct the problem, or - worse yet - they will give you the owner's phone number and tell you that YOU need to contact him/her directly! To best demonstrate the difference, suppose that the air conditioner goes down during your vacation. With Don Martin Vacation Rentals, you contact the office and it becomes OUR problem. We promptly see to its repair. With other agencies, you will have to call the owner yourself. You will have to hope that the owner is accessible and if so, amenable to make the repair. Often days, if not the entire vacation, will go by without seeing any satisfaction. Whatever situation may arise, representatives from Don Martin Vacation Rentals are on standby to ensure that you have an enjoyable, stress free vacation. It is our commitment to service that has allowed us to build long term relationships with many of our guests. FOR THE OWNER: Are you tired of low rates and open weeks? Is coordinating cleanings and repairs a problem? See the difference that "EXCLUSIVE" makes! WE can clean and maintain using our own employees and supervisors. (We can also supervise your own cleaning person if you already have one.) WE keep the calendar. There is no chance of double booking. WE can rent on any schedule, which allows you, the owner, to use your property as you see fit. For example, suppose you would like to use some summer weekends. It is not a problem to work around your personal use, booking "short stays" to fill the gaps. Please contact Diane Herman through the link in this ad for more info.

great location. We loved being close to the boardwalk but not too close, where it was so crowded. Loved the quiet of Wildwood Crest. Also loved being equal distance from the ocean and bayside
Great Family House
Nice house, close to beach......lots of storage space and we loved the huge tables provided. Had no trouble feeding the family in this spacious kitchen.
Great Beach - Fine House - Beware of Management Company
The good news - it is an overall fine house. Much as you would suspect from a vacation rental home that is on the market for sale, it is not kept up to a pristine standard, but it is no doubt just fine for a beach vacation. The advertisement says it is 7 rooms, but it is not - the den has a futon that has seen much better days and is incredibly uncomfortable to sleep in. The rest of the rooms we fine, no frills, but at the beach you go to spend time on the sand and not at home, so no issue there. It would have been nice to have linens included, as most people do not have king beds or twin beds a plenty. The house was clean; their beach equipment was all broken, so more stuff to lug.
The bad news - the management company for this rental is particularly difficult and sketchy to deal with. From the start it should have alarmed us when they were asking about our marital status and relationship to each other. It turns out that if you are a group of 30-40 year old professionals with a mix of relationships and a small infant, they take the opportunity to try and pull a fast one on you. When the AC was not working and the house was at 81 degrees, they said they would not try to send someone over to fix it because of the holiday - mind you that we would have been fine, but our infant son was not fine. The fire alarms went off at night and all they could say about that was that they are glitchy. They said they would send someone over to check both the AC and the alarms, and they never did, and we never even got a call back about it. At the end of the trip they called and left an aggressive message stating they found "extensive damage" and did not leave any details. When we called them back, they would not offer any additional information because the manager had the day off - as of today, it has been 5 days and we still have not heard back from the manager as to the details of the damage they are claiming. We never had a walk-thru at check-in or check-out, and now are being blamed for disrepair that already exited in the house! To top it off, when I got VRBO involved, I got an angry email from the management company stating that they plan to hold my deposit for the full 30 days, seemingly with no intent to address the issues they have claimed any time soon.
Wildwood is charming and the beach is great - an overall great friend/family vacation marred by an incompetent, prejudiced company. I would recommend anyone to beware as they deal with this rental...
The tenant wanted her security deposit back at check out time. It simply can't be done that quickly. Credit card charges process through instantaneously, but it takes 2-3 weeks to return a security deposit back to a card.
The tenant was calling every day to ask if there was damage, to ask if the money had been returned yet, and she placed calls to VRBO/Homeaway to get them involved too. There were dozens of phone calls, multiple emails, and lots of wasted time for what amounted to absolutely nothing. It was aggravating for all of us. I tried to explain that this was standard operating procedure, but she would not listen to reason.
There was no damage here. No money was held back. AC was repaired promptly, even over a holiday weekend. This was all so unnecessary.

Really enjoyed the property. It does require some maintenance though.
Several of the outlets covers were barely attached, closet shelf was broken and laying in closet. Shades in one of the bedrooms were broken, door handle for garage was falling off. These are not complaints, loved our week there, property was beautiful. Merely observations for good of property.
You gave us your list during your stay. All was repaired or replaced. It's common to have a punch list at any check in with a property of this size to sleep up to 20. Homes like these take lots of wear and tear. Repairs are made weekly. It's an ongoing process.
Thank you for coming and please come again soon.

Clean and comfortable beach house
The house has plenty of room and is in a good location, about 3-4 blocks to the beach. Everything about the house was great. However, it would be better if the house came a stocked with more of the essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, a dish sponge, etc. We had missed the part of the email saying those things would not be provided and had to make a quick run to the store after we arrived. Even if we had read the email more carefully and bought stuff in advance, it is just way more convenient to have those items provided.
Property was in great condition and provided a really fun place for 4 families to have a weekend get away. We look forward to going back next year!
6+ Bedroom rentals are rare in the Wildwoods and this is one of our most popular rentals. Your 2019 reservations are welcome at any time, and in fact, that is the only way to reserve a house like this, because it is usually sold out by New Year's Day. Family weekend rentals are available in May, early June, September, and October.

Wildwood Crest is the quietest, most “family oriented” area of the island. You are south of the boardwalk here, and south of the crowds and noise. Wildwood Crest is known for its beaches – the finest on the island and on all of the east coast.
The northern most section of Wildwood Crest pleases everyone. You are within an easy walking distance to the southern “Crest” end of the boardwalk, which makes the children happy, yet you are in a more quiet family area, which pleases the older folks. You will use the pretty, FREE, clean Wildwood Crest beaches too.
The center section of Wildwood Crest is where you will find many many fine high rise resort hotels and motels. The Doo-Wop style and neon lights up and down the strip are beautiful! You will enjoy their names and the history of the Wildwoods.
The southernmost section of Wildwood Crest is called Diamond Beach. This is the last few blocks on the island before you will head over the causeway to Cape May. You will use the private Diamond Beach beaches, which require beach tags. Palm trees, snack bars, rest rooms, cabanas – it is a resort-like atmosphere.
The big, beautiful, free Wildwood Crest beaches are second to none!
The Cape May County Zoo is the best in New Jersey. It's free and it's only ten minutes away. The town of Cape May is only ten minutes away. Ride the Cape May-Lewes ferry to the outlet malls in Delaware - what a nice day! Try a new golf course - there are many! You won't believe the large selection of great restaurants and huge luxury resort hotels - all within walking distance!
Boating and jet skiing are just a few blocks away on Sunset Lake. The Wildwood Crest bike/walking path is right in front of the building. It's a beautiful way to begin or end your day with a walk along the coast.
Amusement parks, water parks, basketball, biking, boating, canoeing, casinos, fishing, crabbing, golf, hiking, jet skiing, kayaking, live theater, miniature golf, night activities, outlet malls, sailing, shopping, sunset cruises, surfing, swimming, tennis, water skiing, whale and dolphin watching, wildlife viewing, wind surfing, zoos.

**The world-famous two-mile boardwalk is close by.
**The big, beautiful, guarded, FREE Wildwood Crest beaches are second to none!
**The Cape May County Zoo is the best in New Jersey. It's free too! They ask for a donation only at the door. It's only ten minutes away from this home.
**The historic town of Cape May is less than ten minutes away as well.
**Ride the Cape May-Lewes ferry to the outlet malls in Lewes, Delaware and ride the shuttle buses to all the outlet shopping areas. What a nice day! You will combine a beautiful Delaware Bay boat ride with shopping!
**Try a new golf course - there are many.
**Try your hand with a rod and reel or with a crab trap! Fisherman and women will have many opportunities to catch dinner.
**You won't believe the large selection of great restaurants – within walking distance or a short drive from this home.
You will remember a vacation in Wildwood Crest for years to come. But many visitors don't have to TRY to remember. They come back again every single year! Your family will have special vacation memories here in the Wildwoods too!
