Sea Gypsy B&B

209 East Magnolia Ave. , Wildwood, NJ 08260 USA (Show map)


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.

I would tell friends and family to stay here. It was very pleasant stay.

First time b&b goers

This was our first time staying at bed and breakfast and it was a great experience. Their family welcomed us with open arms and the house was very pretty inside and out. The breakfast served in the morning is amazing and there's so much food. The rooms are small but definitely fit for what we needed. They are very accommodating to anything you should need. There's a big hot tub on the porch and we had open access to bikes and beach chairs as well as towels. They even let us keep our car parked in the lot and use of everything when we checked out! The hospitality is fansatic and I would definitely go here again.

The Sea Gypsy B&B was wonderful.

We stayed for 4 days. The room was beautiful and well maintained. Todd was very helpful, pleasant and accommodating to all our needs. Breakfast was well prepared and very good. My wife and I look forward to going there again.

We love the Sea Gypsy!

We've stayed at the Sea Gypsy the same weekend for several years running. Our favorite room is the Emily Dickinson suite, but we also stayed in the Walt Whitman one year (it was nice, but my husband is very tall and one of the exits is a swinging door onto a porch that was not very comfortable for him to use). Everyone is lovely, they offer convenient free parking while you stay there-- and for the rest of the day the same day you check out! We couldn't be happier with our experience. I put 4 stars above for "value" only because it is on the expensive side (especially the suite that we like), but we go at the end of July, so we're there in the height of the season. I've definitely paid more for less comfortable quarters at other locations in the past. We love the people and the multi-course hot breakfast every day at the Sea Gypsy. We'll be back!

Great place!!

We reserved the Ezra Pound Room for my family from Tuesday to Friday. The price was reasonable and the room was great. This is our second time there due to the fact that the owners are there for their guests. Check in wasn't until 11 but we arrived at 10 am and we were given a key to the room while they finished getting it ready and we went down to the ocean.

A great find.

The Sea Gypsy is a real gem tucked away in the middle of Wildwood. Todd and Natalie are very personable and made my stay very comfortable. I will be visiting them again.

Great find!

Very clean, cozy, and accommodating. We'll definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Another Great Stay at Sea Gypsy

4.4 on July 28, 2016

We have stayed at the Sea Gypsy numerous times over the years and we continue to enjoy the kind service, the value and the comfort of staying there. This year I stayed on the third floor Shel Silverstein room. The room is comfy, the bed and mattress very good and the bedspreads and pillows all appeared fresh and new. The bathroom is small, so if you are a big person this could be an issue. The wifi is great and there was a flat screen TV although I didn't use it. There were doors that opened to the lovely deck below and the breeze coming in with the ceiling fan was great even though it was a hot week. The porch also is always breezy. There is central air just to mention. My room was clean and freshened everyday and morning breakfast is large and at the beautiful dining room table. The Inn will lend you beach chairs and bikes and there is a jacuzzi with towels on the front porch. Combined with the breakfast this is a great value, much better than staying at a motel. Afternoons there is cake and wine for guests and use of the main house porch and bathroom. All and all, we can't say enough about staying here, my son and family and 80yr old mom came this time and they took care of all of us with no problems. I always enjoy the fact you don't see anyone unless you need or want to! There are options without stairs across the street and cottages too, have stayed in both and they are all great too.

Hidden Gem!

I was looking for last minute availability to accommodate my family just days before a last minute weekend beach visit and couldn't be happier with my experience! The rates at the Sea Gypsy were significantly lower than all of those over-visited & out-of-date motels In the area and the amenities & furnishings at the Sea Gypsy went absolutely above and beyond the often seedy offerings provided at all of those worn out, tired, and less than hygienic other establishments. Everything was perfect! My family was blown away with the obvious time and money put into the beautiful rooms of theIr Carriage House. The Sea Gypsy has paired charming & tasteful decor with current high-quality creature comforts (ie. private entrances, dual zone climate control air conditioning units, flat screen TVs, roomy multi-head showers, gorgeous hardwood flooring, french doors seperating common area from the main bedroom, lovely trundling daybed sitting area, and conveniently planned kitchenettte to name a few) flawlessly!. I'm so glad that a friend recommended the Sea Gyspy and my family is looking forward to visiting again soon! This establishment easily earns top scores.

July 2016 - Repeat visit

We loved the Sea Gypsy so much on our last visit that it was a no brainer when we visited Wildwood this week. Great atmosphere, love the private suite, close to beach/boardwalk and within walking distance to bars/restaurants. Love it, can't wait to visit again!
