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.

Quick getaway with family

Cheaper than the hotels on the boardwalk and much, much nicer. The breakfast was great, and there is a jacuzzi on the deck to use. They provided chairs and unbrellas if you need them and they have bikes on site to use...definitely would go back again.

Definitely coming back next year!

We stayed in the Ezra Pound suite in the Carriage House and could not have been happier with the accommodations! We enjoyed the flexibility of coming and going as we pleased (no housekeeping to worry about!), and the ability to cook up a quick snack whenever we wanted. A few reviewers had previously complained about the noise at night from the local pub (Good Night Irene's), but we experienced none of that. We're definitely coming back!

Absolutely Outstanding!

Our 5 day sray in their Browning Hayloft was excellent in every way! Just 2 blocks to boardwalk! Everything is there! Plenty of Room (big bedroom/2 queen beds, bathroom, kitchen area with daybed/a extra twin mattress. We already reserved the same room for next years. My 3 kids and wife loved everything about our stay in Wildwood! We didn't experience the onsite dining.I'm sure its wonderful as well! Thank you. Regards, John S

Quiet but close to the action

The Sea Gypsy is in a beautiful old house with a lot of charm and character. It is very conveniently located for visiting the beach and boardwalk at Wildwood. It is on a nice quiet street, but it is just a short walk to the beach and the boardwalk. So you can enjoy the crowds and liveliness of the boardwalk, but retreat back to your B&B for a good night's sleep. We stayed in the Whitman Room, and we liked it. The downsides are that the room is small and does not have a bathroom inside the room. But it does have a very large bathroom across the ball, for the exclusive use of Whitman guests. The room also has a very nice semi-private deck directly outside the room. The room is gets the afternoon sun, and is very bright and cheerful. We would stay here again if we return to the area.

Great price and location!

My husband and I were looking to stay in a B&B for a night while we were in the area with family. It gave us a great opportunity to have a night alone, although I would bring my daughter back in the future for one of their larger rooms. We stayed in the Walt Whitman Room which does not have an attached bathroom, but one across the hall. We were given a tour upon our arrival and shown the small candy bar and baked treats available. Our room was small but cozy and had a nice attached deck where we watched fireworks from later that evening. The B&B was quiet with not a whole lot of activity going on in the home or outside. The location was perfect for a trip to the boardwalk then a later trip to Cape May. It is perfectly situated in an area where a lot can be reached by walking or car. Breakfast was delicious and we sat at a table of happy guests. Overall the price could not be beat! There were a few things we wished for- coffee available before 9am breakfast (if it was available, we did not know where to get it), water available in the refrigerator, info/welcome sheet in the room with area attractions, B&B info, wifi password. We will be back in the future and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy b&b!

My two friends and I had a great relaxing stay here! Everything we needed was in easy walking distance--shops, boardwalk, and beach!

Good family experience

We visited Wildwood, NJ on Memorial day weekend & stays at Sea Gypsy B&B. we are family of 4 and our kids are 31/2 and 1 year old. Most of the historic B&B don't accept kids below 12 but this was an exception. They are very friendly & the breakfast was AWESOME!!!

Great Place

This B&B is top notch. the owners have gone to great pains to make this destination better and better each year that I stay. The place is beautiful, service is impeccable and you just can't beat the price anywhere. I almost hope it stays my secret. I would have given it 5 stars on all categories but the seb site would not let me click on this star. I rate this B&B 5 stars
