About Frank Corretini

We are both beach lovers who grew up in the Philadelphia area 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 North Wildwood

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 ensure 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 great disappointment in spending our hard earned money on poorly 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!

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!

Quite charming. Great location. Frank was a very gracious host.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love the beach and this place was ideal. Located on beach block enabled me to view the sunrises in the mornings. I also enjoyed sitting on the porch and people watching. The place had great lighting and pastel rooms that gave it a light touch. Charming indeed

Perfect spot in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed: central air, beach stuff on site, front and back decks, wi-fi, FULLY stocked kitchen, and very responsive and helpful owners. Not to mention a million other little touches that truly showed they love their place and want you to as well. The location was perfect - 1/2 block from the boardwalk and beach and close to the action on the boards without being in the noisy heart of it. This may seem trivial, but the fact that there was a keypad lock instead of a key just made our week so much easier, since there were 6 of us. Overall, just amazing. Already booked for next season!

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.
