About Eileen Campbell
Originally from Pennsylvania but now living in Wasington, DC, I grew up loving vacations at the beach.
Eileen Campbell purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Eileen Campbell chose Wildwood Crest
Our family has been coming to the Jersey Shore since we were infants. When my parents reached retirement, I wanted a chance to give them the beach lifestyle they always loved. The revenue from rental apartment enables me to give them this gift.

This was perfect for us
I am in love with this VRBO. Everything about it was just right for us. The little touches brought the apartment to life, and the property itself is full of personality.
We arrived late. The directions on VRBO (how to check in) made it easy, even though it was late (and dark). I loved the option of bringing our own sheets and towels - I didn't have to worry about staining anything that wasn't mine with makeup or lotions.
I loved the deck. It was like being in your own little world. I'd lay on the bench cushion and just look at the beautiful blue sky. The property is shared, but I never felt like I didn't have any privacy. All neighbors were respectful - it was almost odd how private it felt. We enjoyed walking to the beach and the boardwalk to get our exercise, and the steps were also excellent exercise.
If you are a much larger person, this property might not be for you. You will be climbing stairs, and the rooms are not incredibly spacious - but that is only an issue if you are used to tons of space.
We settled into a routine - returning from the beach, we would shower in the outdoor shower (which had everything necessary; a changing room, towel hooks, shampoo, body wash, and the wonderful feeling of not having to worry about getting sand all over the home). I would recommend a shower bucket if you like to use your own shampoos and soaps to carry up and down the stairs with you for such an occasion (that is what I did). After that, we'd wrap ourselves in towels, hang our suits on the clothesline, and dry off while relaxing on the lounge chairs, or back up on the deck.
We were there for a dance competition, and the owner has a full length mirror that you can put where you like. We set it against the wall in the (twin bed) room, and my daughter spread a towel and she was able to apply her makeup that way! The rest of us used the bathroom mirror.
The window units were perfect for sleeping and keeping us very cool (we were never too hot, even in 95 degrees). The owner was thoughtful in that there were spaces to put everything - a toothbrush tray, a tray for toiletries, a caddy in the stall shower, baskets and hampers for dirty clothes, hangers, etc.
This property was a tremendous value. Eileen, thank you for offering your home on VRBO. It has caused me to fall in love with the Jersey Shore. And thank you for all the wonderful decorating ideas!
Perfect destination for groups of young people
This destination was absolutely ideal for myself and 4 other young adult women, at a price extremely reasonable for us. Everything was exactly as advertised, and we all had a lovely time.
If you plan to bring your own sheets, I believe the bed in the bedroom was a full size, whereas the sofa bed was closer to a queen (Eileen please correct me if I am wrong!). We only had 1 small maintenance issue which was rapidly fixed by the owner’s parents, who were very involved in our stay (specifically her mother Mary, a very nice woman). The door lock made us feel very safe, the kitchen was completely usable, and the living area was perfect for hanging out.
We did not get a chance to explore the area much, but the walk to the beach was extremely reasonable. We were able to find street parking on all days but our last, even though we took the car almost every day. Downtown Wildwood is very close to this property, and attractions like the Cape May Zoo are only a short drive away.
What really wrapped up our stay at this wonderful property actually occurred after we left. Some folks in our party had forgotten some small things (a bag, a bikini top, and a towel) and the owner’s mother Mary kept in communication and worked with us to help us retrieve them.
Overall, an absolute five-star experience. We wished we could stay there all summer!
The place was absolutely perfect for our family. Eileen and her parents were so accommodating and just nice people! We will definately book again when we go back to the Jersey shore!
Beautiful get away spot
We had a wonderful stay in the attic apartment! It was CLEAN and nicely decorated. Everything was right about it. The place was just as pretty as the pictures. The walk to the beach was a breeze! The lady that we could contact should we need anything, Mary, was lovely! It was affordable and well-appointed! I would highly recommend this attic apartment and would, without hesitation, stay there again.
Charming weekend getaway
My husband and I were beyond pleased with Eileen’s hospitality and charming abode. We were well equipped with everything you could think of- a fully stocked kitchen, roomy living room, and comfy bedroom. The farmhouse style apartment made us feel cozy and at home while being a block or two away from the beach! We will definitely be back!
Thanks Kaitlin, we enjoyed having you! And congratulations again to your husband on his graduation!
It was great!
The apartment is so cute and really well kept. I’m glad I picked this rental for my stay in wildwood. It’s just a few blocks from the beach which made a nice walk to. We really enjoyed our stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
