Great vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in this home and we enjoyed it so much that we have booked it for several week in summer 2016. The house was spacious and we particularly enjoyed the fenced in yard for our dogs, the large deck and the homey feel of the property. The location was excellent and within walking distance of excellent restaurants, historic homes. the Washington Mall and the beach. Also, the owner was very cooperative and responsive. All in all, our vacation was outstanding!

Clean, spacious, and kid- and dog-friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th home we've stayed in while vacationing and one of the best. The house is much bigger than it looks with a back yard large enough for dogs to be as happy as their families. Very clean, I did not have to worry about the kids playing on the floor. We were very happy and hope to return in 2016.

excellent, highly reccomended

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and the back yard well fenced in (I did not have to worry about my dog running out). The house is well equipped and does not feel like a rental house, it has warmth in it. Location is perfect- close to the beach, fish market and the restaurants.

The owners very responsive to questions.

I plan to return again later this summer.

Loved, loved, love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for families and pets. The yard was perfect for my dogs. The home is very spacious and is perfect for a large group, plenty of space and privacy. It is very close to the center of town and beach. We walked and also drove. Walked to the lobster house too. I would rent again in a heartbeat!!!!!

Cape May Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the above location and was entirely pleased with the house and its' location. The owners were very helpful and accommodating with check-in at 2 pm instead of the usual 3 or 4 pm. The house was clean and open with big rooms, and a lovely backyard and deck. Our dog was happy to be with us which was also enjoyed by our kids (ages 11-17). The rooms were decorated tastefully with only a few touches of beach or shore-related items, which I found to be a nice change from the usual wicker furniture in most rentals. It really felt like a home instead of a beach house. The location was great as we normally spend most of our time in Cape May but it was easy to travel to other locations like Stone Harbor or Wildwood. After spending the last 6 or 7 years in Wildwood Crest we weren't sure how this would work out but we found it to be a lovely change and something we would like to do in the years to come.
