About the property

2 bedroom/2.5 bath private home close to beach.

Bow Wow Bungalow is a well landscaped, modern, five-year-old 2 bedroom/2 bath home just 3 lots back from the beach.

There is a dedicated walk-over to the beach. The Bow Wow Bungalow is close to both of the small markets on the Cape, directly across the road from the 9 mile Loggerhead Trail bike path, and only 5 miles from the entrance to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.

There is a queen bed in each of the two bedrooms. Maximum occupancy is four people (five, if one is an infant in a crib).

The pet fee is $60 for the first pet, and $40 for each additional pet, with a maximum of 3 pets.

This was a true vacation; relaxing and serene. We are a family of 3 + 1 dog and all were comfortable. The pool is beautiful and the space fresh, clean and modern. Kitchen is fully stocked. Vince was more than helpful with any minor issues we had and was always accessible. We will return to this property.

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this bungalow. The owners and management provided everything we needed for a week at the beach. Very clean. I always hesitate when it is dog friendly ( we brought our boxer) but it was in great shape and little wear and tear. The Cape is perfect if you are looking to unwind and ingest what reminds me of the "Old Florida". Only thing I would request is more towels in bathrooms.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just fantastic! We were supposed to check in at 4pm but the property manager, Vince, texted us to let us know that the house was ready early (this has NEVER happened for us before with other rental companies on the Cape.. Usually we are lucky to get in at 4pm!). When we arrived, the place was very clean. The size of this house is great for a couple or two.We really enjoyed the porch area while we were there. I am one who loves to prepare fancy meals and I found the kitchen to be very well stocked. The best part for us was that the owners have thought of everything for pet owners! The fenced in area was wonderful for our two dogs, there were poop bags provided, the floors inside are a nice looking laminate so we didn't have to worry about our dogs scratching up their floors.

Another great thing was the property manager. We have felt with a few of the rental companies on the Cape and I can't say I had ever been impressed with any. Vince, however, was very prompt to respond to our emails and even stopped by to introduce himself and made sure we were enjoying our stay. We hadn't experienced that level of service before and it was quite refreshing! We loved this house had such a great time during our stay. We can't wait to return!!

Very thoughtfully designed home. Comfortable for both the two legged and four legged. Convenient to the beach, biking, and boating. We will be back.

Baby Moon

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECT! I don't think our family could've loved it anymore! We took our last vacation as a family of four and we will never forget it! The house was beautiful and very toddler friendly. We loved the big windows and kept them open most of the time. Our dog loved the fenced in yard. It's pretty impossible for a mother of two toddlers who is also 7.5 months pregnant to be relaxed, but this place made it happen! The furnishings were comfortable and stylish. The beach was amazing. We saw sting rays and dolphins almost every day. The pool was a huge hit with our 3 year old. Can't wait to visit again!
