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 place but in need of cleaning and repair.

  • 1 of 5

This is a beautiful condo. However, it is now in need of repair. The jacuzzi tub is broken, some of the doors are off hinges, the blinds to several bedrooms did not work hence there was little or no privacy. We spent about 5 hours cleaning the place when we arrived since we had small children. All of the floors were dirty and sticky. The hardwood cleaned up and the bathrooms were not clean to our standards. The rugs should be shampooed since they look nice but your feet get black just walking on them. We called the agent with a list of many items. they were apologetic but I doubt that we will see any money back I would AVOID THIS PROPERTY until they clean it up and repair it.

Owner's Response: Yes, it IS a beautiful townhouse. We have been renting this home since 2010. This Homeaway ad is over SEVEN years old and this is the first negative review received in all that time. The cleaning complaints were simply not valid. This is not a sterile environment. You have to be realistic! This is a 6/7 bedroom beach house that sleeps 20. The floors were suitably clean, but I would not suggest that you put your infant on the floor of a rental property that sleeps 20 people. This home is not advertised to have a jacuzzi tub. No doors were found to be off of hinges. The bathrooms ARE meticulously clean to anyone's standards - cleaned by our own employees and supervisors. These are professional trained experienced cleaning people. The only valid complaint is about some missing slats on vertical blinds and one that would not open or close at all. (They have since been repaired.) Our offers of cleaning crews and other assistance were refused. The only thing that could have made this renter happy would have been money back, and there was no justification for this. This home is booked solid every year, year after year. We have many many MANY happy repeat renters here. I apologize that we could not make Ruth Ann happy here too.

Perfect! Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our multiple-family vacation, with guests ranging from 2 months to 69 years old. It's hard to believe THAT much space is available in a townhome! The house had everything you'd need, including beach cart and toys, stocked kitchen, outdoor grill... and it's a short walk to the beach- easy enough to make with 3-7 year olds. The boardwalk and a wide assortment of restaurants are a 5-10 minute drive. Added bonus: Don Martin Realty was a pleasure to deal with and hassle-free. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Awesome House for our Awesome Family!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down, bar none - we've never found such a nice, clean, spacious, well equipped rental for our extra large family of 18. 6 bedrooms, plus a "den" with a full futon gave us all the privacy we needed to sleep 13 adults and 5 children, without sticking someone on a sofa bed for a week. The back yard is very private, with a grill, picnic table, and a nice outdoor shower. Wireless internet access was great for the teenagers who can't live without it. This is a nice quiet street - very close to the beach. We'll be back in 2013!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was beautiful and was everything we expected. It was a little further away from the beach than we thought but the beach cart was great. We were able to put everything we needed on it for the beach.

The only thing I could say that was needed were TV's in the 2 bedrooms on the bottom floor. We had 4 girls in the room and wanted to watch Tv and one bedroom had 2 adults and a baby. It would have been nice to be able to relaxe and watch Tv while baby was napping. Other than that we had a wonderufl time and would recommend it highly to a large family.

Top Thing to do in Budget:.....

Top Thing to do in Family:.....

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.

Activities include:

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.

**There are concerts every week/weekend during the summer at the new Crest Concert Pavilion at Centennial Park – ocean front and center of “The Crest”.

** Ride Dolly the Trolley to the boards - it runs every 15 minutes every weekend all day and night long up Ocean Ave. and back on Pacific Ave.

**Atlantic City and the casinos and night life and concerts are only 30 minutes away.

**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!
