“Really beautiful place, serene and inviting”
Reviewed 30 June 2011

Sadly, I could only stay for one night, but if I find myself in wildwood again, I will only stay at the Sea Gypsy....Anna was most accomodating. She allowed me to park right next to the house and was more than a wonderful hostess. After my stay, I had a tour of the other building and cottage....I love this place!!! i would like to try the cottage next time around for a few days!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally charming and comfortable

My boyfriend & I stayed here for 1 night. We stayed in the Walt Whitman, which is the smallest of the rooms. I wouldn't recommended this room if you are staying more then 3 nights as there isn't a lot of space. However is perfect for a short getaway. The house is very cozy and Victorian. It is over a hundred years old, so you will hear creaks throughout the night! Our room was bright and airy and our detached bathroom was gorgeous. There was a small sink in our room and steps that led out to our deck. The bed wasn't huge but it was comfortable. We were 1 of 2 couples staying here, and the other couple didn't seem to be in the room for our entire stay so it was VERY quiet. Since there was no one else staying there, we had the free reign of the house. We saw all the rooms and bathrooms and they were all very nice and cozy. They have all types of cookies and candy in the hall, also wine, popcorn, tea, coffee, and hot chocolate always available. There is a main living room with a VCR and DVD player. There were a lot of movies to choose from. The front porch is pretty big, a nice jacuzzi was out there also. The innkeeper was a sweetheart, she made us an amazing breakfast and made us feel so welcome and at home. She took us on a tour of the suites which were so beautiful, when we come back we plan to stay in one. It was a very relaxing trip!

Quiet and pretty, the Sea Gypsy is a lovely refuge from the crowds on the boardwalk in Wildwood. The breakfasts were delicious, the room clean and friendly, and the location terrific. It's a very nice place to get away too.

We enjoyed our recent stay at The Sea Gypsy. It is within walking distance to the boardwalk, beach and several nice restaurants. Wonderful homemade breakfast is served at a table with the other guests at 9 or 10 am(you choose the one you need). We got up early and walked the beach and boardwalk then came back to shower and eat. They have bikes you can use. The main porch has a hot tub, hammock and several rockers, tables and chairs for relaxing. We stayed in the Walt Whitman room. It is cozy with a double bed and sink in the room. It also has access to the upstairs deck from the room. You have a large private bath at the end of the hall with your own key. We locked our suitcases in the bathroom during the stay to give us more room in the bedroom and easy access to our clothes when bathing. Owner was very helpful and even gave me a recipe for blueberry buckle when I complemented on how good it was.

This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and we are now hooked! The accommodations were awesome! We didn't reserve ahead of time and yet they took us right in! We enjoyed our stay in the Longfellow suite which was BEAUTIFUL! We enjoyed relaxing on our private roof top balcony, which was located right outside of the bedroom ,and the hot tub on the main floor was to die for! This was definitely a memorable place for us and we hope to get back there again someday! If your going to Wildwood we highly recommend The Sea Gypsy B&B! Kristina 25 ,Kenn 23

Nice B&B within 3-4 blocks from the beach (can walk with chairs).
Very clean and well kept with lovely front porch and great hammock!
Breakfast was atiquate: fresh cantelope, French Toast, OJ and blueberry muffins.
Not greeted upon arrival and did not get any info on restaurants while there.
Gentleman finally showed was not very friendly & only recommended one local bar for dinner (Good Night Irene's), although women were pleasant at breakfast
Really could have used printed info on local restaurants, Cape May, local specials, etc.
Offered "free" lemonade in small fridge, but without cups (what good is that?)
Free candy counter was nice touch!
If you're looking for nicer area of Wildwood, stay in Wildwood Crest or North Wildwood
Overall, I would recommend this B&B for one night only since the bed was too soft (typical)

My wife and I stayed for a week. The location is a few blocks from the boardwalk - close enough that it's not a long walk, and far enough away that you don't have the sound of parties going all night. The breakfasts were absolutely incredible.

We stayed in the Emily Dickinson suite. A gorgeous room which actually gave us several ideas for decorating our own home! We had no problem parking, but we did not stay during peak season. The owner does have a parking lot across the street to handle overflow, but we did not need to use it.

We had only one significant problem: the mattress was too soft for our backs - a problem that most hotels seem to share.
