Another Great Summer at the Harimar

  • 5 of 5

Year after year I love my summer vacations at the Harimar and this year was no different! As a matter of fact, it was better than ever! The convenience of this property location, the close proximity to the beach and boardwalk, the cleanliness and affordable prices, the hospitality and the dutifulness of my host/hostess! All of which was complimented by the great weather and warm ocean temps we had this summer. WOW!!!! Who could ask for anything more? This is the perfect get-a-way! Absolutely perfect! That's why I come back year after year after year (for 30+ years). It's my home away from home and I love it here! Thank you to John and Nancy and your family for all your hospitality over the years along with your complete dedication in making my "happy place" even happier! You're the best! I can't imagine staying anywhere else! Thanks again!

Well I guess it says it all, Bienvenue à tout les Québécois.

We have been going since 1997, my kids where at a very young age when we started going at the harimar till this day my kids are grown up know and They come on there own because the owners treat us like familly. Know me and my husband take Time toghether and chose to come at the Harimar after so many years. close to the beach by foot, the boardwalk is about 3 to 5 minute walk, what else could you ask for ,If you are fussy and if you are looking for a 5 stars, well it is not, its very clean and old. but very well takin care of, when you need something John or Nancy are allways there to make sure our need are takin care of .But John and Nancy are the 5 stars owner of this place, if you have any dought about this place DONT try it once and I could assure you wont regret it...

Alors pour vous les Québécois , Canadien, si vous voulez allez passer de belles vacances à Wildwood pres des plages à pied et le boardwalk a quelque minute de marche,allez au Harimar oui c'est une veille bâtisse vieux meuble mais propre et bien entretenu, il a plusieurs appartement qui peux accommoder des couples et aussi des familles de 15 personnes, moi et ma famille vont à la même place depuis 1997. L'essayer c'est l'adopter. John et Nancy sont les propriétaires et ils sont très gentil et attentif à nos besoin.

Merci ,Thank you John and/et Nancy for great vacation/pour de belle vacance.

Horrible 2nd time around!

  • 1 of 5

We booked here last minute again due to 2 factors, the main one being my daughters annual cardiology results and the second, the exchange rates coming from Canada... both factors to which the owner knew, understood and seemed accommodating. The week of our arrival, the owner went above and beyond to please us by mentioning that the unit we had would now have air conditioning for a very small fee. This was most appreciated, acknowledged by email and in person several times ... and certainly acceptable. No complaints there, everything was agreed upon prior to our arrival. Upon our arrival, she appeared content to see us return to the Harimar but her comments from that afternoon into the 3rd day were a complete 360. As we were attempting our first cookout on her commune BBQ, she approached us and asked how my snooze went and i told her that I couldn't sleep because i was sun burnt and off she went about how they're 70 years old, we shouldn't complain & were not paying much. My husband offered her more money (which should not have since the price was offered and agreed upon prior to our arrival) and she replied " Your wife wont give me more money!" This was very rude and uncalled for. You cannot expect top dollar for your low budget property, everything is falling apart in that unit.

Then we noticed our front door handle would lock but if you just pushed on the door, it would open very easily, we had to ask 3x before they finally fixed it. The next day we noticed a nail sticking out one of the bedroom doors and was very dangerous to our 4 year old toddler. We went to see her to ask for a bottle cork so we could easily remedy this for them and we received "Oh, I think I will just demolish the buildings next year!" This had to be the smartest comment she made all week. But all we got was bad attitude because she mistook everything we offered as help as a complaint. Its really too bad because her husband and son are very nice and helpful. Despite the place being old, it is clean, but you get what you pay for here. Unfortunately, I will never return here unless her husband and son take over, they're the real customer satisfaction people of the family. She on the other hand, has clearly done her time there, and should pass the business along. Next year, we will pay more and go elsewhere, this place is not worth the price or aggravation.

Owner's Response: We try to please all of our customers and do everything possible to do so. Please read this same renter's review of August 11, 2015. Tina and her family arrived exhausted before 8am (check-in was 4pm) after a 10 hour drive through the night. She rang our bell and made several calls to our house and cell phone to wake us up for a parking spot. She then pushed for an early check-in. The other tenants were still sleeping. We did put new air conditioners in their unit because we knew that their daughter suffered from a heart condition. We wanted to assure their comfort. Also, we worked very hard to allow them to move in earlier. However, in spite of all of our efforts to accommodate them and tend to any complaints they had immediately, they truthfully never showed appreciation or satisfaction. Sometimes you just can't please people no matter how hard you try. Thankfully, the large majority of our customers are satisfied and return year after year.

Loved that the cottage was 3 minutes from the boardwalk. We had a great time, however one night during a horrible storm we had a flood in our cottage. Landlord came over with towels the same day which was nice. Our Belongings that were on the floor got very wet. Also found that the smoke detectors and CO detector did not have batteries in them. E-mailed landlord and she came right away with batteries. A couple of the mattresses also need to be replaced as one is torn and the others are stained.

Very clean, but very "budget"

  • 3 of 5

We were late in looking for an apartment with our granddaughter, and I must say the one we rented from Harimar was very clean and extremely convenient to the boardwalk and piers in Wildwood. Also, the managers were friendly and helpful. However, it was also extremely basic. The mattresses need replacement and a vinyl upholstered sofa was not quite what I expected. I don't think I would have tried to really cook in that kitchen, but we did reheat some things we had brought with us, and it was functional.

Owner's Response: I'm happy you found your apartment very clean. We find the sofas practical so we can clean them thoroughly after every rental. The beds were only used 5 summers, which makes them 2-3 years old, but we will definitely look into their comfort level. Since our prices are extremely family friendly, we cannot add too many superfluous frills. Thanks for your review. Our guests' comfort is always our main goal.
