About Bill Seward

After growing up in Western New York, I moved to the Mid-Atlantic in college and began my real estate career that has lasted for over 25 years. I currently enjoy this property with my wife and three children.

Bill Seward purchased this house in 2015

Why Bill Seward chose South NJ Shore

I was attracted to this property because of the ease of access to the beach and its ability to create an atmosphere that wold be attractive to families.

What makes this house unique

The location at the south end of the boardwalk provides for a quieter family friendly environment, but still provides access to the attractions at the Convention Center, along the boardwalk, and in town. There is no need to drive anywhere once you are here.

beach pefection

  • 5 of 5

The property was charming. We actually met the owners , and they provided a little history of the site. They have managed to incorporate the older furniture pieces with an update of certain amenities. WE watched the fireworks from our front porch and had a perfect week.

nice little house

  • 4 of 5

It was a very nice place to stay, close to the convention center. Could use some updates, the beds were uncomfortable and the one made so much noise when you moved two of us ended up on the couch. The tv's in the bedrooms need updated and there should be a sticky window cling in the bathroom on the wimdow instead of a shower curtain. All in all we will be glad to stay there again it was clean and had the room we needed. Looking forward to.our next stay there.

Great location, poor condition

  • 3 of 5

First, the pros:

- Location is great, close to beach and boardwalk, with a bunch of local businesses nearby, but not very noisy at the same time.

- Plenty of space even for big families.

- The owner was quick to respond to our complaints, and alleviated the issues to some extent.

Now, the cons:

The place seem to be in state of severe neglect. Age-old paintwork, hardwood wasn't taken care of since 1960 I guess, holes in the carpet covering the stairs, you got the picture. As the consequence, the place is dirty and grimy. The cleaning team only seems to care about the bathrooms; the floor is never swept, the carpets are never vacuumed, all the surfaces are dusty, the kitchen table and the dishes are sticky, I can go on forever. To add insult to injury, one must be ready to pay to use the washer and/or dryer!

To summarize, this area is definitely nice to visit, but we'll never return to this property.

Complete filth...don't waste your money!

  • 1 of 5

All I can say is the description of this house is not what it really is. This has been the most filthiest vacation home I've ever stayed in! House comes equipped with..... no TVs in the bedrooms, no DVD players, no Grill,no picnic table, no clean Linens, no silverware. Sofa in the living room smells like urine. One of the bedrooms on the bottom floor has a huge hole by the head of the bed, in our case the week we stayed there had a nest of crickets that you heard chirping all night. The other bedroom downstairs had no AC the entire week. The property behind us was allowed to park in the backyard along with constantly using our outdoor shower and everytime we try to use it someone was already using it from the other property.... which was frustrating because there is only one shower inside the house. The floors were so covered in dirt I don't think they've ever seen a broom, sweeper or mop! Dishes were left dirty and put away. The steps running to the upstairs had uncovered nails sticking out. The water pressure in the bathroom was a joke along with where the shower head is place, you literally have to be 4 feet tall and no taller to actually get a good shower. The linens on the beds were full of stains and just didn't even look clean. The kitchen counters were full of dirt/dust as they are being held together with duct tape. All of the knobs on the stove do not work. The upstairs bedrooms are a bigger joke, as there was no TVs for the kids, dirty personal items from previous tenants left on the floors, behind the dressers and under the beds. The owner of this property was contacted numerous times first day we were there... I believe he did try to fix the issues that we're going on... he did have maintenance come to the house, butt with all the frustration from everything things still did not get fixed or worked out. I spoke with Bill the day before we were leaving and he basically told me that there was nothing he could do because he lives 4 hours away. He did Apologize.... but what was the point when our vacation was coming to an end! One good thing I can say about this property is its location!!! I will never return to this property nor Wildwood New Jersey for that matter.... as the beach was also terrible! Very dirty and the walk from the sand to the water is never-ending. But my review is about this house and I recommend everyone to stay away!! Spend your money elsewhere if you plan on having a nice, comfortable ,cozy clean place to take your family

Plenty of room for large families. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this house. It was very roomy for all of us as we are several generations of family. The owner is very responsive to any issue that may arise. The location is GREAT! We are considering booking again for next year.

sheri a very upset client

  • 1 of 5

This house was aweful. I'm not sure how in the heck it has a good rating. The only good thing about this house was the location. I will never return to this house. The house is in poor condition. It has loose carpet on the steps with nails sticking out of the carpet. The kitchen has duct tape all over the counters and the cabinet doors won't close all the way. This house was pure filth. I never stayed in house soooo DIRTY . You had to wear shoes the entire time because of the pounds of dirt hair and dust on the floors. The kitchen is disgusting. When we got dishes from the cabinets they stilled had water laying in them ( at least I think it's water ). The towels had hair alllllll through them. The carpets 100 % have NEVER been vacuumed . The sheets to all the beds had stains all over them. The downstairs bed sheets had hard stiff stains indicating they where never washed. The upstairs dresser had what appeared to be blood stains on it, and once again did I mention the house was just in a filthy filthy condition. I have never felt so disgusted. When we booked the house we where told ALL bedrooms had flat screen tvs. WELL the two upstairs bedrooms had no tvs or cable. we where also told that we had a picnic table and grill outside with free wifi. WHAT YOUR NOT TOLD IS you have to share the grill and wifi between 3 houses that all hold like 10 ppl. So you really don't have wifi cause it NEVER works. Then to share a grill between 30 ppl is a joke and there was not a picnic table. Plus he tells the other houses it's ok to park their cars in your back yard if they need to. So if you have kids, they can not play in the back yard because people park their cars directly in the grass. All of the furniture is from 1900 and both downstairs bedrooms have broken beds. Neither bathrooms have outlets to plug anything in and the bedroom lighting is so poor it's impossible to do your make up. The shower head in the bathroom reaches only to your chest so good luck on washing your hair. It's impossible. He is the true definition of a slum lord. My daughter was bite up so bad by bugs in the house she had bug bites all over that burned when she tried to go in the ocean. She then developed a fever ( I swear from the sever bites she had) that I had to get tylenol for. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. You are supposed to go on vacation and stay somewhere nice and clean. We called and spoke to the owner and he did nothing to meet our demands.
