This is our second year in a row renting this unit- we love it here! The condo is supplied with everything you need; just bring sheets, towels and swimsuits and you're good to go. Short drive to the grocery store and the trolley to the boardwalk stops right in front of the building. You are directly on the beach in a few steps and there are two spotless pools. Enjoy!!
This was our first trip to the Shore so we didn't know what to expect. I traveled with my husband and our 2 boys, 8 and 3. We were happy with the condo because it was right on the beach and was enough room for us with the 2 queen beds and the bedroom was spacious. The living/kitchen area is a bit small but we didn't spend much time there so it was fine. It was clean and had everything we needed. Frank was great and was very responsive to all of my questions before and during our trip. The unit is right above one of the pools and the other guests were very respectful of the quiet hours. Summer Sands is very well kept and the maintenance guy was always sweeping up and cleaning so the outside areas are well maintained. We liked the location of this unit because there is a nice area with lounge chairs and a table with chairs and an umbrella right there. My husband and I enjoyed putting the kids to bed and grabbing a bottle of wine and sitting outside at night. There are 6 grills that are also cleaned daily so you can barbecue if you want to. The building has an elevator and outside shower so you can cleanup after leaving the beach. There is a great breakfast spot one block over that we walked to for sandwiches and coffee. Wildwood Boardwalk is a 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Cape May is a 15 minute drive in the opposite direction. There are plenty of places to eat and grocery and drug stores around if you need anything. We even had to use the Urgent Care and it was great. We were really impressed at how nice the area is and how much fun we all had. We plan on going back next year!
We rented this condo from Sunday to Friday the week before Labor Day. The check-in was seamless; simply popped into the office, let them know we were there and were given the parking pass. The parking space was covered, which was great for keeping my black car from becoming a furnace. The key was in a lockbox at the door, there was a luggage cart and an elevator to get our stuff in. This unit is on the second floor, steps to the free, gorgeous beach and the beautiful oceanfront deck where we ate dinner every night, perfect location! The condo was stunning and spotless-we felt very much at home there. It is excellently equipped with everything you need. Plenty of cooking utensils, you don't need to bring a thing-there were even spices there! It was my husband and I, our sixteen year old daughter and a friend of hers. They were able to go off on their own to the beach, pools, even a trolley to the boardwalk on the corner. The area was safe and it is very family oriented. The management was fantastic and they have strict "quiet hours" from 11 pm to 8 am, which was great-no noisy parties or other annoyances that I've experienced at other locations. Beds were comfortable and the two pools were clean and heated, just delightful! An extra thank you to Matteo, who kept the pools so clean and worked so hard all day making sure the decks and outside areas were spotless-he is truly amazing! So friendly, as was everyone we encountered here, management, condo owners and renters-what a lovely community-and they are open year round. We will definitely be back next year!!!
We paid FAR too much money for our stay.
We are a family of 4. Our children are 2 and 4. They are listed as condominiums but it looks to be a motel that was converted. Regardless, it was FAR smaller than the pictures made it appear. We had so much fun in New Jersey, and we were able to tell someone really tried to make this condo as nice as possible, which is the only reason we decided to give a 2 star instead of 1 star review.
Some parts of the room were clean, some were not.
Clean: beds, dressers, floors, inside of fridge.
Not clean: mud splash near the door on the inside, mold in between the tub and shower, top of fridge, pull out couch was dingy, lots of dust blew out from under beds. Filter in kitchen air conditioner.
We didn't stay in the room very much. After our children went to bed we discovered that the wifi password listed did not work despite several attempts and altering the caps. The cable in the living area does not work. The bedroom cable did.
It is listed as having a stove, there is a stoveTOP. So don't bring anything that needs to be cooked in an oven.
There were LOTS of utensils, plates, etc. The coffee maker was disgusting. I tried to clean it and could not get it clean.
Parking was good. Access to beach was close. Pools were very small but clean.
Prior to trip, the owner was very responsive and made nice recommendations. Our security deposit was returned to us on the date promised.
For the amount of money we paid we won't be staying again.
