About COLLEEN M GAUL

Owners grew up in Pennsylvania enjoying family vacations at Southern Jersey shore points. Currently reside in Pennsylvania and enjoy creating the same wonderful memories with their three '20 Something' children, family and friends.

COLLEEN M GAUL purchased this house in 2014

Why COLLEEN M GAUL chose Southern Shore Region

Wildwood Crest has brought our family and friends together for generations. We chose this quiet section of beautiful Wildwood Crest because of our treasured memories and it's close proximity to historic Cape May, exciting Wildwood boardwalk, family and romantic restaurants, free concerts, and spacious, soft sand beaches.

What makes this house unique

Large house with five bedrooms provides an opportunity for families with multiple generations to find areas to enjoy each other and also have quiet time to themselves. Many varied and free activities offered for all ages. Duel central air conditioning is offered, but breezy ocean and bay winds flow easily through the entire house reminding us of the childhood summer cottages our families rented many years ago.

Nice, but...

  • 3 of 5

This past July, my family of 4 went on vacation with another family of 4, along with our 2 dogs. Based on the photos of the house and the location, we were very excited. First, the owners are really very nice and very easy to deal with. But now for the house...the house has 2 levels. The first level is extremely nice...these are the pictures shown on the site. It's very open, roomy, comfortable and lovely. The second level is another story...we had 3 young adults that were going to stay upstairs for our stay. The bathroom upstairs has a steep sloping ceiling, as do the 2 bedrooms up there...we all hit our heads at some point! The tub/shower was so weird with the ceiling that 2 of the 3 sleeping upstairs wouldn't shower up there. Also, the bedspreads on the beds were not clean. The second floor basically looked like it belonged with another house...it was not updated...it was stuffy and just didn't match the downstairs at all. If you have no need of the upstairs then you will love the house, but we were very disappointed.

There is a nice fenced in yard with a hot tub. Its a nice little area, but the greenery really needed some trimming...there were so many ants and mosquitoes. Would have been really nice with some maintenance.

The house is located in a great area...walking the few blocks to the beach is a breeze.

It was nice to bring the pups with us and I wish we loved the house, but we had a good time anyway. As I said, first floor, which is the main bulk of the house, is great. But, if you need the additional rooms and bathroom just know that upstairs is not in the same league.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately sand ants are often an issue at the shore. We do employ an exterminator to keep the ants under control. I am sorry a few of your group did not like their upstairs quarters. Most guests have reported the second floor has provided nice privacy and a wonderful place to enjoy games, reading, and resting. I have given you top ratings as I do wish your group luck in finding a five bedroom that meets your needs in an acceptable price range.

Great family shore house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family! There is a lot of space in this house which made it easy to relax and enjoy our week at the shore. We were able to enjoy cooking, eating and watching t.v. together in a somewhat open concept. The house was clean and spacious for all of our needs. The beds were all comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. After a few hours of arriving we felt at home in this house. The proximity to the beach was great and only 2 blocks away. All of the beach chairs, toys and umbrellas provided by the owner was great as we didn't have to worry about packing them. We are hoping to return to this beautiful home next summer. We would highly recommend this property to any large family.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are happy you enjoyed the beautiful neighborhood, area, and beach as much as we do! We are looking forward to hopefully renting to you again next year. You will be happy to hear, on the off season, we will be renovating the Master Bath by enlarging it and adding a shower. We will also be redoing all concrete surrounding our rental property. Hope to see you next year and thank you once again!

A large, clean house two blocks from a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is very large and well kept. Although pets are allowed, I did not see any evidence of pets being there prior to our visit. Everything was very clean. The kitchen is new and very nice. There was an island in the kitchen with chairs plus a large dining room table, so everyone had room to eat together. It was a two block walk to a beautiful beach. The house had bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and sand shovels for the guests to use. There was a deli, a small store, restaurants and a miniature golf course all within walking distance, and you could bike anywhere. Would definitely visit again!

"Great house, perfect location, fantastic owners!"

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end our vacation this year is one for the books. We arrived at the house and were immediately welcomed with a nice gift basket with all types of goodies. The homeowner even went as far as leaving a jar of dog biscuits for our dog! We were able to park right in front of the house and had two spot's in front of the garage which was very convenient. The kids were thrilled because we were close to everything. The beach is only a block from the house so we were there quite often. This is honestly the best shore house for families. The kitchen was very spacious and literally had everything you would need. I can't name one thing that wasn't provided. Wonderful family room with a flat screen TV with plenty of space for everybody to relax comfortably. The upstairs was like a living room itself with a significant amount of space. Also included two bedrooms with additional beds in each room. The street was quiet and our nights were peaceful. The backyard provided an outside shower, hot tub, grill, garden and plenty more. The homeowner had everything well stocked and the whole place was spotless. What was most impressive was the home owner's responsiveness. Every text or email I sent was replied within minutes. It literally feel's like home and very easy to settle in. We left the place as we found it and are already planning next year's vacation here. Thanks so much for an awesome vacation!!!

Great Family Shore House

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting shore houses for many, many years and this house was one of our favorites. Our week started off right with a thoughtful care package from the owners. That was a first for us and it definitely set the tone for a fun, friendly week. The location of the home was on a quiet street and a comfortable walk to the beach. Our teens loved having their own space in the loft upstairs. The living room was large enough for us all to sit around the TV to watch American Ninja Warrior. We would definitely rent again but our large family is expanding and we need just a couple more beds.

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this home. The hot tub was great for relief after a long day in the sun (and my husband's bad back), it was big enough to fit four people without feeling even slightly cramped. Our older Yorkshire Terrier loved the fenced in back yard and exploring the spacious and roomy first floor. We didn't make too much use of the upstairs because our family fit all on the main floor, but it was a sight to behold! It was so expansive it could've been it's own rental and easily could've roomed another eight plus people. The owners were very attentive and helpful upon our initial day figuring out how things worked. Once we had the hang of it, it felt like our own place! Definitely a good fit for anyone looking to feel at home at the shore. We sure did!
