Venue for all ages
We (3 generations from TX, MD & MA - ages ranging from 9 months to 72 years young) converged on Laughing Pines. All enjoyed the accommodations & venues in and outside and made lasting memories, exceeding all expectations. One would be hard pressed to find a better venue.

Thank you! We're so glad you loved our place as we do. Extended families like you that take advantage of our home and beach community are why we love sharing. Come back anytime!!
Superb in every way!
We had our first whole family vacation with 3 adult children spouses and 5 very young grandchildren for a total of 13! The house fit our needs beyond every expectation and then some! I don't have enough superlatives to do it justice. It is just superb in every way for a large family. It is directly on the beach (the perfect beach for small children)! It is in Cape May Point ( the perfect beach community for small children)! It is huge (6 big bedrooms and plenty of room to get away from small children)! It is TOTALLY equipped (it does need a better wine opener). It is close to the store (great for small children)! It is close to the lighthouse and bird walk (great to get away from small children). It was spotless when we arrived (contrary to some other reviews). It is everything you could possibly want in a vacation beach house. Towels, beach toys, bikes, games, binoculars, we really didn't need to bring anything except ourselves and a bathing suit (and a cork screw). And all the children loved it, especially the big ones.
If you need a large place on the beach this is a magnificent choice.
Hi Al! WOW! Thank you! We love sharing our home with families like yours. Come back soon! All the best! Kathryn and Chalmer Taylor.
Great house for a family vacation
This home had everything to make our vacation memorable. Great, quiet location with easy access to all of Cape May.
Thanks Paul! Glad you and your family enjoyed this special place. You're welcome back anytime! Kathryn Taylor
Best Beach House By Far
We have been vacationing at our beloved Cape May Point for the past 30 years and "Laughing Pines" was absolutely the best rental property ever. The location was what first attracted us -nestled in the dunes with a semi-private path to the beach - no street lights between you and the Atlantic, amazing! The house itself accommodated our multi-generational family very nicely. Lovely bedrooms, comfy living rooms, a cook's kitchen and second floor deck which we congregated on constantly! The amenities were incredible: beach toys, bikes, telescope, linens, grill, etc! The owner was extremely responsive to our needs. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back...
Thank you for the lovely review. It was great working with you as well. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Kathryn Taylor
This is our third time renting this house. Our first two times were vastly different than our third......and likely last. The house was not clean and had ants in the kitchen. When we told the owner, we were simply told there's bug spray in the closet. We did not raise the lack of cleanliness when we checked in, this was a mistake. We left the house much cleaner than we found it. Subsequent to our departure we were accused of excessive nighttime noise, breaking items in the house, and leaving the house very dirty, all fundamentally untrue. We cleaned the house prior to our departure. Additionally, there's a "cleaning crew", who is supposed to clean the house. As to the noise, we were in bed at or before 10pm each night. Further, my parents, who are over 70 were staying as well. This accusation was a falsehood and only came up after our departure. Lastly, we were accused of having excessive trash. The trash area is unsuitable for a house this size. I am at a loss as to how to limit trash for 15+ people. All of our trash was in the limited trash cans or large garbage bags, so I am not clear on the issue.
If you are going to rent this house, I would recommend documenting every blemish, and flaw otherwise you risk being errantly financially accountable. We were very disappointed in our dealings with the owner. The house may seem like a great deal, renters beware.
This was a most unfortunate end to a 3-year-rental relationship. We value families who care for our home as theirs. Our home is a special place we love sharing with families who understand this. We welcome all who respect our home. You have to give it to get it. Kathryn Taylor
Cape May, NJ at it's best
I can't imagine why anyone would pay $200 or more a night at a hotel when they could stay in a six-bedroom private residence literally a few feet from the beach for what equates to be less. Your beautiful home equipped with not one but two split level gathering kitchens was a nice bonus. The value added amenities of towels, chairs and bikes helped with packing requirements as well. Thank you for sharing your home we hope to return!
Thank you! We think our home is special and we're glad to share it with families like yours. We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Please come again! Kathryn Taylor
