  • An Absolutely Wonderful Week in a Lovely Cottage!

    "I have to say, we really lucked out in finding this wonderful home, just a few steps away from the serenely beautiful, expansive Delaware Bay. As we started our Cape May "beach house" search much later than we should have, there wasn't much that was available for the only week that we could visit. Fortunately this place popped up, and I immediately dropped all further searching! From the very first contact, the owners were just amazing to correspond with.... all/any question or concern that we had was immediately addressed, as their "customer service" was above and beyond what I've typically experienced in the past. And the Cottage...? Well, it's absolutely beautiful! From the perfect landscaping, (that's even more beautifully arranged than it appears in the accompanying photographs) to the inviting Florida room, the home was perfect for my family. The kitchen is large and well appointed, the backyard is private and the patio was perfect for relaxing with beer in-hand. I also put the outdoor shower to good use! This home felt so much more like "home" to us while we were there. Every detail just seemed to "map" perfectly to what we wanted in a vacation cottage. We loved the quietness that the location provided as well. Walking/strolling our 4 month old along Shore Drive each morning was the perfect way to start each day. There is a really great restaurant/pub just down the road and the center of Cape May and it's beaches are just a short 10 minute drive away - though we thoroughly enjoyed the beaches along the bay nearly everyday, as the waters are a touch warmer, the beaches not at all crowded and the sunsets were simply amazing! If/when we return to Cape May, we will plan our trip well in advance of our arrival in hopes of securing this wonderful beach cottage again. Beach vacations for us are about more than just the beaches - and staying here allowed us to feel perfectly and totally at home while enjoying that the Cape May area has to offer."

  • Great House, Great Location!

    "This house was perfect for our late summer stay. It easily accommodated 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids), was very clean, spacious, with all the amenities. The large living room area and front porch were perfect and provided plenty of room for additional guests that we hosted for dinner. The location is great too. For years we had stayed in Beach Haven (this was our first time in Surf City), and we all agreed that our Beach Haven days appear to be over! Great beach, and walking distance to everything you need (great restaurants, ice cream, butcher, grocery store, fish market, and coffee). We plan to be back in 2015."

  • Amazing sunsets and oh soooo relaxing!

    "What a wonderful and relaxing time at Sunset Cottage! The sunsets are spectacular being literally right on the water....each evening the sunsets even better than the one before! The pictures on Jim's site do not do the cottage justice as the attention to detail in each room is perfect! The added bonus was being able to bring our lab Lucy who loved the house and beach too! We did venture to the new Dog Beach in Wildwood at Poplar Street / Boardwalk area that was tons of fun....especially with the Dairy Queen right at the entrance. The owner was so nice and but out a huge bowl of water for Lucy! Also ventured to lovely Cape May and Lobster House for several lunches and brought back fresh caught clams and shrimp to enjoy on the deck at sunset! Thanks so much Jim for your kindness and great info on the sites in and around Reeds Beach which made our vacation even more memorable! Thanks again!"
