About Mary and Rich Brautigam

Our family has had a home and vacationed on this street in Wildwood Crest since the late 1960's. It is a lovely residential family oriented community with lots of quiet and privacy but close to everything.

Mary and Rich Brautigam purchased this condo in 1990

Why Mary and Rich Brautigam chose South NJ Shore

This property is unique because it offers not only great accomodations in each unit but affords fantastic expansive outdoor space for relaxing with beautitiful butterfly garden with pond and lots of birds and butterflies all summer long.

What makes this condo unique

It is not often you can find a beach rental where you can walk to one of the best beaches on the east coast and also feel like you have all the space and the comforts of home and a large beautiful yard to sit out and enjoy as well. Complete with BBQs, hammock and patio furniture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time, we were convenient to the beach. The unit was very comfortable. You keep the place so clean. The yard is grest, the flowers are beautiful and we love the new pond. There were birds in the yard all the time. We'll be back.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented 2 units in August of 2015. My 18 year old daughter and her friend, my 5 year old son, husband and dog were in unit 2 and my parents with their dog stayed in unit 1. We had a wonderful vacation. Both units were clean and well stocked. We had our lunches and dinners in the backyard. I was able to throw the wash in while we go to the boardwalk. We love the Wildwood Crest area and vacationed their many times before. This was the first time we brought our dogs with us and everyone had a great time. Mary was there to welcome us in and answer any questions we had. We are certainly looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you.

Enjoyable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Three families shared all three condos. They were clean and comfortable. The yard was a nice place to relax, plenty of room for outdoor games. The beach is only three blocks away (short walk). Cape May is a short drive where there are many unique stores. The young adults enjoyed the local brewery. The BayView Inn is at the end of the street. It's a great restaurant with a beautiful view. The owners were very friendly and accommodating to any need. We enjoyed our time and will return.

wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience again this year. The apartments are spacious and well kept. The kids had plenty of room to play and we all especially enjoyed the vaious boardgames that the owners keep in the apartment for guests. The yard is relaxing and safe for kids of all ages to play in. the neighbors (both renters and those next door) have been friendly and curtious of each other.

The kids review: 'We loved everything about the living room, especially the front window' (they like watching the butterflys and birds).

My kids are begging to return already. :) Definatly a great place to stay if you have children or just enjoy being comfortable.

Great rental - we will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit had everything that was advertised and more! The owners paid attention to detail. The kitchen was well stocked and we just had everything we needed from BBQ supplies, outdoor tablecloths, dish soap, laundry soap etc. We are so happy we found a nice clean place where we can have our dog with us. The neighborhood is pretty and quiet - great place to walk the dog and great deli/coffee shop and restaurant in walking distance. The owner was quick to respond and available to answer any questions I had and she went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. We look forward to staying here again!

Perfection untouched by Sandy

  • 5 of 5

My High School Reunion group spent a long weekend here and was impressed by this lovely rental in Wildwood Crest. It was my first time in the area and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the beach - not unlike Miami Beach. The house, yard, and neighborhood was squeaky clean and manicured. I was pleasantly surprised by the amenities, such as the dishwasher, and the fully stocked kitchen. We had everything we needed to prepare wonderful meals and BBQ's. Everything was so easy and I highly recommend this place!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great & relaxing vacation at your wonderful condos. Took a nap in the hamock, watched the birds take a bath in the mini pond while enjoying coffee and the paper in the yard. Walked to the beach in the afternoon and then to The Bayview Inn where we enjoyed happy hour on the deck looking out on Sunset Lake. An excellent location & set-up. The condo was very clean and in great shape. Everything worked perfectly. It was very nice to have a wide screen TV with a full movie package & wifi. Also really happy that there was a gas grill and washers & dryers. I made for easy summer meals and was nice to not have to return from vacation with bags of dirty clothes. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and look forward to a return visit. There were any number of attractions/ restaurants that we would like to explore on future visits. Perhaps next time we will talk friends or family to coming with us so that we can take more than one apartment - it would be a great set-up for a mini reunion..
