Why Ryan and Christine Dilks chose Diamond Beach

It is on a quiet dead end street, but is close to everything. The location is perfect! We are about 2 miles to the boardwalk of Wildwood, but well away from all of the hustle and bustle. We are also a hop skip and a jump from Cape May. Within minutes you can be at Downtown Cape May, the Cape May Lighthouse, watching another beautiful sunset by the sunken concrete ship at Sunset beach. We have a great little miniature golf course across the street that serves ice cream. South Station Market (like an upscale Wawa) is only a block away where you can order outstanding breakfast sandwiches, your morning coffee or some great fries as a snack when you get home from the beach.

Our beach is the best in NJ. It has something for everyone. We are a private beach and provide 8 tags for the beach in our home for our renters. Every year, the owners of the beach bring in Palm Trees and plant them on our beach. It is beautiful! Our beach also has tiled bathrooms, showers to rinse off on your walk home from the beach, delicious home cooked sandwiches and a tiki bar for the adults, that has live entertainment on the weekends.

It is our little slice of paradise that we'd love to share with you!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this rental, this was the second time we have rented it. It was spacious and very clean. It was close to everything and the walk to the beach was an easy one with two young kids!

Beautiful, close to the beach, comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property every summer for about 8 years. We love how close to the beach it is and how comfortable and clean it is. We have never had any issues with the owners who are always a phone call away. We have made so many wonderful memories at this beach house and we cannnot wait to make more. We love that Diamond Beach is a private beach because it is never crowded. We also love taking advantage of becoming members of The Diamond Beach Club. They provide a lot of fun activities for the kids in an environment that's fun for adults as well. The house is about 10 minutes away from Wildwood and the boardwalk. It is close enough to the fun without being too close to the noise. The area where the property is is quiet, family friendly, and near enough shopping places to get all your needs met.

Wonderful vacation rental! Family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

My family was very very happy with this vacation rental and would recommend it! Great town house at diamond beach/wildwood crest. Great location....close to beach, there was a mini golf & ice cream and bike rental right across the street, short drive to the boardwalk, a beach shop, a convienent store and great restaurants (crest tavern was one of them) was very close. * If you go to the crest tavern go on a wed night and get their famous pot pie. The Family left beach tags for the private beach which was just three blocks away. We usually had one person drop us off at the end of the street though with all our beach stuff as we found this easier than walking especially on very hot days. (If you want to walk there was a wagon under the deck to use and the walk was only three blocks straight with only one somewhat busy intersection to cross). Plenty of rooms that were all very comfortable and having 2 1/2 baths was great. Nice outside front and rear deck (rear deck did not have the cushion furniture pictured but was still very nice). Master bedroom king bed was so comfortable and had its own small tv. House had internet which was awesome especially with two teenagers. Air conditioning was great too. Only real downfalls were the tvs only had a limited number of channels and there was no grill for cooking outside. I think grilling was prohibited in the complex even though there were two grills at two other town homes on the back of the house area). Not a big deal though as the Kitchen had plenty of pots/pans etc to cook all meals. House had two private parking spots with extra spots on the street. If your looking for a nice quiet and clean rental close to everything I would recommend this house. My family will be looking into renting again next year if we come back for our third year! Thanks for sharing your house with us.

Our familys all time favorite beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this home and we just love it. Diamond Beach is definitely our new favorite beach town. It's beautiful and quiet yet it's a quick drive to all the neon lights of Wildwood. The townhouse itself is so comfy. We love hanging out on the front deck, the kitchen is well stocked and easy to work in. the living area is spacious and comfortable. Bedrooms are a good size with plenty of closet space and drawers to tuck all your belongings away. Yes the walk to the beach is a little long but on a hot day someone can always go back to the house and get the car to lug all the beach gear back. Also, Owner is wonderful and so helpful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful townhouse with us! We look forward to coming back!

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Family and dog friendly town home on a quiet dead end street. Ideally located. Short 3 block walk to private beach with food and beverage service and facilities. Beautiful nature preserve across the street. Plenty of restaurants a few blocks walk in any direction, plus mini-golf, ice-cream and convenience store. The Dilks' are great hosts and we are sold on next year. One of the best shore vacations we've had in years. Highly recommended.
