If you are looking for the excitement and adventure of the Wildwoods and serenity and a good night's sleep, come stay with us at The Sea Gypsy. Our fully restored circa 1900 Queen Anne Victorian home is located on a neighborhood street just blocks away from the beach, boardwalk, and amusement parks. Interior and exterior detailing make this charming Bed and Breakfast a pure delight. Hardwood floors, antique furnishings, a turret and spacious verandas conjure memories of a special time in history. The newest addition to the Sea Gypsy, is a brick bungalow featuring arts and crafts or mission style suites.

A wonderful week at the Sea Gypsy

4.0 on September 18, 2014

My wife and I stayed multiple days at the end of the summer season. Overall we had a wonderful time. The site is about two and a half blocks from the boardwalk, close enough to walk but away from the noise. The room was great. The only thing we could have asked for was a slightly bigger bed, but it was as advertised. We got a lot of use out of the DVD player in the room and the large movie collection downstairs. Our player was broken when we arrived, but we let the proprietor know and he had it replaced by the time we got back that evening. The candy and cookie bar with cold lemonade was also really nice. 5 out of the 6 breakfasts were great. There was always fresh fruit or a parfait to start and a fresh baked offering every day in addition to the normal breakfast plate. The only disappointing one was a morning where we had scrambled eggs and a biscuit that appeared to be a Pilsbury Grand. But even that was not a bad breakfast. We did not make use of the hot tub, but the complementary beach towels and chairs were very useful. For the price this was an amazing deal and a great experience. We visited Cape May a couple of times, it was only about ten minutes away. If you are visiting Wildwood I would definitely recommend, or if you are visiting Cape May and want a more affordable option to the Cape May B&B's.

Restful Stay at the Sea Gypsy

Our stay there was certainly what we were looking forward. We would recommend a stay at the Sea Gypsy to anyone looking for a centrally located, comfortable stay in Wildwood.

Great Get a way

Lovely Victorian in Wildwood

We stayed two nights in the Longfellow suite in the main house, which has a bedroom with a door out on to the deck, a bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub/shower, and a sitting room with couch, TV, and mini frig. Very nice to have all of that space, although there is too little space between the end of the bed and the steps out to the deck and I banged my ankle getting past. Breakfast the first morning was excellent pancakes and bacon, not as good french toast the second morning, and the coffee is rather weak. All in all good value and very close to Cape May, where we had an excellent dinner at Blue Rose

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the kind words about the house. Regarding the coffee we have had bad luck with percolators this summer. We went through 2 coffee makers. Sorry you had weak coffee, we just replaced our 2nd percolator. I guess they don't make them like they used to. Hope we see you again.

relaxing getaway

Best Option in Wildwood

4.2 on September 08, 2014

The room was really stunning and the Jacuzzi tub made for a very relaxing stay. There was plenty of room to spread out in the living room, enjoy a book or movie, make a pot of tea in the kitchen or eat at the dining table in the bay window. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of closets, drawers, and shelves for our clothing and toiletries. It made relaxing very easy. It's a quick walk to the beach, boardwalk and the rides and only about 8 blocks to a Wawa in one direction and a supermarket and bagel shop in another direction. The breakfast in the victorian house was nice, it's beautifully appointed dining room held a long table where we enjoyed pancakes, bacon, coffee and crumb cake. Would recommend it for a couple who wants to get away or an individual who needs to have some quiet and chill out time!

Clean, private parking!!

We went down the shore for one night recently. After looking all over for a place to stay I found the sea gypsy. I was immediately impressed with the rooms and how nice they were. we stayed in the william morris suite and it was like our own private hideaway. I was so upset we could not stay longer! The owners did a fantastic job with the rooms in this B&B. We have already decided we will stay here again next summer hopefully we can get a stay for a week! Amy DeMarco

We stayed two nights in the Carriage House, Robert Browning Hay Loft. Very pleased with the room. This is the entire second floor of the Carriage house and has lots of room. We had 5 people in the rooms. Breakfast is not included with this particular room but we came down for the triathlon so we didn't need the breakfast anyway. Most other rooms include breakfast. We learned our lesson two years ago in Wildwood about some of the hotels. Avoid the hotels. The Inn keepers allowed our friends to park on the property all day even after we checked out. That was very nice of them. Yes we will stay again. Dan and Eileen.
