About Frank Corretini

We are both beach lovers who grew up in Philadelphia and spent summer weekends with our families and friends at the Jersey Shore. So, when we had the opportunity to purchase a beach home of our own, we knew exactly where to go to find our perfect getaway. We truly enjoy opening up our home to guests who share these same family values and appreciation of the beachcomber lifestyle.

Frank Corretini purchased this condo in 2006

Why Frank Corretini chose South NJ Shore

Location! Location! Location!

Hard to beat being 1/2 block from the beach and boardwalk ... not to mention having a covered porch with an ocean view, as well as a private driveway to avoid the parking nightmares during the peak summer season. While Wildwood & Wildwood Crest are certainly nice, the more laid back, family friendly feel of North Wildwood is exactly what we desired. With everything we could possibly need within walking distance; as well as the bright, airy, and general "beachiness" feeling, we fell in love with this place immediately and have gone to great lengths to insure it stays clean, modern, and packed with amenities for our guests.

What makes this condo unique

Before we were owners we were renters, just like you, and are still renters when we vacation outside of the Jersey shore. Over the years we’ve stayed in some great places and some pretty dreadful ones. We have had the misfortune of renting houses where the furniture was old and damaged, the mattresses were saggy and uncomfortable, and the house was in general disrepair. We experienced disappointment spending our hard earned money on badly maintained rentals. When we purchased our condo we vowed we would never let that happen with our rental unit and have made continual improvements over the years to ensure our guests have a fantastic experience. The comments posted from our guests, as well as the numerous guests who retain their rental from year to year, help let us know we're definitely doing something right!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation rental for our family of 4 adults and a baby. The home is bright, nicely decorated and very welcoming. There is plenty of room indoors and outside to gather for meals, board games, morning coffee, etc. The bedrooms are also a nice size. (My husband and I stayed in the "kids room" with a pack-and-play for the baby and had plenty of room.) This was truly a home away from home. Frank has thought of everything to make families feel welcome and comfortable. There are movies, board games, beach equipment, baby gates (the list truly goes on and on). The location is also ideal - a half block to the beach and boardwalk, and a short drive to grocery stores and restaurants. We are still talking about our stay and have already reserved our week for next year.

Fantastic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the prefect spot for our summer vacation. It is close to the boardwalk. The inside of the unit was exactly as promised.The owners provide everything you need for a lovely day at the beach. Frank was easy to reach and always helpful. We needed to replace the gas tank for the grill and he reimbursed us without a second thought. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a great vacation at this beautiful condo. It was like walking into my own seashore home. Every convenience was made available to us.. My children as well as my grandchildren enjoyed the time we spent there. It was clean,beautifully decorated, had comfortable beds and was walking distance to the beach and boards. The weather was even perfect that week..We hope to return again next year for another great vacation in this beautiful condo in North Wildwood.

I would never stay at this condo again!

  • 1 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the condo, it was cleaned and spacious. We had a great time. BUT, the owner tried to say that the cleaning people said they had to clean the kitchen floors twice, the kitchen counter tops were dirty, etc. which was a Lie!!! Of course they were going to say this so they could keep the security deposit. Besides we did pay for the "CLEANING SERVICE!" So what exactly did we pay for??? I guess the cleaning people don't clean. My home is immaculate and I would NEVER EVER leave someone's home a mess. We are a respectful family and we were truly upset by this. Because of the owners ignorance, we'd never go back there again!!

Owner's Response: We welcome all reviews from our past guests as they help ensure our future guests have accurate information about our home, as well as how we treat our guests. We were quite surprised by this review since this matter was resolved to everyone's satisfaction within a few days of checkout. We contacted our guest immediately after being notified by our cleaning service of the additional time required to clean our home and, based on the conversation, decided to give our guest the benefit of the doubt and refunded their full security deposit. We also paid the additional cleaning fee out of our own pocket. While we were thrilled to read that our guests "LOVED" our home, found it "cleaned & spacious", and "had a great time", we were equally disappointed, and somewhat puzzled, at the 1 star rating and complete dismissal of a future stay. But, we do appreciate the feedback and will continue to solicit all feedback from our guests as we strive to continually make improvements to our home and the services we provide to ensure the best possible experience for our guests. We look forward to seeing all of our return guests again this summer, as well as welcoming all of our new guests!

North Wildwood Beach is just steps away
Car: not necessary

North Wildwood is located at the north end of the 5-mile island. The pristine & still free (no beach tags req’d) white sandy beach has a warm gentle surf & cool ocean breezes. The 2.5 mile world-famous boardwalk offers breathtaking amusement rides, specialty shops, eateries, theaters & water parks. The Boardwalk offers something for everyone! The young & young at heart can enjoy the double-decker classic carousel, the East Coast's tallest Ferris wheel or enjoy a cinema night on the beach. The inland waterways provide a variety of water sports, fishing, boating, bird and whale watching & many other excursions. If you need a break from the sun and surf, the Cape May County Zoo is a perfect way to spend a day. Other great area attractions include: the Wetland's Institute, Leaming's Gardens, Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, Cape May Lighthouse, Atlantic City Casinos & much more. The island is a perfect place for a family vacation; book now to create new memories that will be cherished for a lifetime!

Other Activities: Ocean Kayaking, Cape May Winery Tours & Tastings, Cape May Zoo day trips, Waterparks, numerous restaurants, pubs, shopping, and beach activities. Sightseeing boat excursions by day or night are wonderful, relaxing ways to pass the time on the water. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry is worth the ride across to Lewes, De -- especially at sunset when you have an amazing view of the coastline as the sun sets on the ocean.

Golf: The mild climate on the Jersey Cape allows for golfing almost year 'round. With six public golf courses in Cape May County and an additional four more in neighboring Atlantic county, there usually is not a problem getting your favorite tee time.

There is enough diversity in course layout to appeal to both the amateur golfer and those who are looking for a challenging game. Many clubs offer dining facilities and pro shops for your convenience. We recommend that you call ahead to reserve your time. Courses include: 1) Avalon Golf Club (609) 465-4653 - U.S. Rte. #9, Swainton, NJ 08210; 2) Cape May National Golf Course (609) 884-1563 - U.S. Route No. 9 & Florence Ave., Erma, NJ 08204; 3) Heritage Links Golf Course (609) 390-4500 - 1327 U.S. Hwy #9 South, Palermo, NJ; 4) Sand Barrens Golf Club (609) 465-3555 - 1765 U.S. Highway No. 9N, Swainton, NJ 08210; 5) Cape May Par 3 & Driving Range (609) 889-2600 - Fulling Mill Road, Rio Grande, NJ 08242; 6) Laguna Oaks Par 3 Golf Course - (609) 465-4560 - 600 Bayberry Drive, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210; 7) Shore Gate Golf Club (609) 624-8337 - 35 School House Lane, Ocean View, NJ 08230
