The cottage was very nice. Enjoyed the peace and quiet. It's a great place to bring your pet. Close
The cottage was very nice. We really enjoyed the quiet and sitting outside in the morning with our coffee listening to the waves and watching the evening sunset. There was a few items I would like to bring to your attention. We only used the washer once. The washer had the hot & cold water hookup reversed and was making a loud noise when spinning out. My daughters dress was washed in hot water even though we had it on the cold cycle. Never the less, the dress was ruined. Since it looked brand new and never used the noise might be a leveling problem. The outside could have been cleaned up a bit with the weeds and sand everywhere. I was not worried about the sand, I took care of that when sweeping was needed. The propane grill needs to be leveled The flood lights and front door light don't work. I was looking for new bulbs but there was none around. I replaced the lamp over the kitchen table. Other than the minor items listed, our stay was very enjoyable. We are thinking about making reservations for a week next year.
The house is in a great location, on the dune in the Villas with a bay view. The wifi was very fast, the A/C worked well, and the washer/dryer looked brand new.
Now, for everything else:
It was not 'just'dirty - there was mold growing in the used coffee grounds in the coffee pot. There was an incredible amount of dirt, sand, and crumbs under the couch cushions, and even a water bottle between the sleeper sofa couch cushions. We couldn't bring ourselves to sit on them our entire stay. The blades on the ceiling fans in the house were caked in dust, as were the air vents. This wasn't from not cleaning between renters, these weren't cleaned in a long time. The roman shades on all the windows were dotted in mold.
As for the livability - The dining room light was out. There are no outside lights, or no outside functioning lights. You have to use your cell phone as a flashlight when going in or out at night. Some of the venetian blinds didn't rotate open/closed. There is minimal furniture. One side of the master bedroom had an end table only large enough to put your phone. The other side had nothing. The 2nd bedroom had no furniture other than the beds. There was no closet, no dresser; you have to live out of your suitcase even though you're staying in a house. The bathroom had no place other than the toilet seat to put your towel, toiletries, clothes.
There was no outside shower as advertised. The outside is desperate for some landscaping. The yard is overgrown, wild, with poison ivy.
We love Cape May. We come several times a year and always rent through VRBO. If we had the same choice again - take this as the only place available as a last minute stay or just not come, in the future we just wouldn't come.
Beautiful and amazing
We went on a beautiful short vacation, one we never will forget. Our stay was amazing at the house; it had everything we needed. It had good air conditioning and was like home. It had everything I needed for cooking and a fantastic view. I will be coming back sometime in the future.
Our stay was great for a long weekend! The property is right off the beach on the bay-side, and we had the whole beach to ourselves. The sunsets are also amazing.
Right by the bay, excellent view of sunsets
Easy to book and pay online, house came with amenities like kitchen ware and toilet paper.
I proposed here because it was beautiful! Watch out for the black flies, but the house itself was perfect. One of the blinds was broken before we got here but we love it and will probably come back next year!
