About Mary Hepp

We live in North Jersey, and just love the Jersey Shore. I never believed we would own a condo on the Jersey Shore, but we do. This unit FACES THE OCEAN. No driving or walking to the beach!

Mary Hepp purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mary Hepp chose Wildwood Crest

Wildwood Crest has always been a special place for us. We both vacationed here with our families when we were young, and just love the peaceful beaches, sunrises, breezy afternoons, and of course, the boardwalk in Wildwood!

What makes this condo unique

Beaches are super clean, long and gradual, have porta johns and equipment rentals if you happen to need an extra chair or umbrella, and of course....FREE.

Great Value

  • 3 of 5

Owner responsive and easy to work with. Location is fantastic. However the unit is small which is not an issue, but there in an excessive amount of personal items everywhere. Food in cabinets, only closet was packed with items, mound of kids toys and bowl of old forgotten sunglasses as you enter. Other reviewers found this to be helpful, our family found it cluttered. The price for what you get is probably the best value in the Crest and if you are ok with people's personal effects everywhere then this is a great deal

Owner's Response: The items in the condo are there purposely for the use of the renters. Most if not all renters find it very convenient that they may not have to bring sand toys, sunglasses, reading glasses, or even use and replace some non-perishable food. The bathroom is stocked with toiletries, in the event a renter forgot something.The closet contains an extra cot, ironing board, and a vacuum. Again, all these items most commented were very helpful. Sorry it didn't exceed your expectations.

Perfect location, right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable time at Summer Sands. The condo had many amenities, such as AC, microwave, toaster oven, kitchenware, games, books, bikes, beach toys, 2 TVs, dry goods, and extra toiletries. The deck, with umbrella tables, right outside the door, was wonderful for morning coffee and meals, with fantastic views of the beach.

The queen sized bed is a softer memory foam, and I prefer a firm bed. The full sized bed was very firm, and much more to my liking. It was nice to have the choice.

Having all of the amenities was nice, but, if I were to stay for a week, I'm not sure where I would put all of my belongings. The only closet was full of household things.

Overall, the owners were extremely responsive, handled a cleaning issue immediately and satisfactorily, and made sure I had all of the necessary information for the condo in plenty of time, in case I had questions. This was a very enjoyable trip.

One of the best spots in the Crest. Cute and cozy. We had such an amazing time. Was not sure about staying at a condo, but now I'm sold. Hoping to start a new family tradition. Looking forward to staying here again.

Location, Hospitality and Views, A+!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we had a great time at Rich and Mary's condo! To start, you can't beat the location and view...perfect. The communal space out front is just like having your own private balcony. It's open to all guests, but no one ever sat at those tables while we were there. We sat outside in the evenings to enjoy the weather, play cards and enjoy a beverage.

Normally when we reserve a place, we expect to pack all odds and ends. Not here! They have everything in case you forget to pack it, down to sunscreen, sunglasses and flip flops :) We have a small child and the bedroom fit our pack n play perfectly and still had plenty of space. I can't say enough great things about this place and the over-the-top hospitality! Only quirky thing was the parking spot; i never understood how they determine the numbering at condos. not a far walk by any means (as there's an elevator, too), but would've thought we'd be next to the staircase. not a reason to deter you from this place!

Will definitely stay again! Thank you :)

Fabulous one room condo overlooking the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Rich and Mary's condo is great. It was clean and the furniture is very comfortable. We have three kids and felt it was plenty big enough for us. Owners are quick to respond/ answer questions and are very kind. We would highly recommend this property!
