Guestbook comments from the owner

I love the new renovations and the opened up living room /dining room. The brick patios and walkways are a wonderful addition. This stay was perfect. The property is incredibly quiet and lovely. The gardens and vineyard are stunning and such an experience to walk thru every morning and evening,. Everyone who works on the vineyard is so nice! The bathrooms are beautiful and clean, great wifi, linens, and Ac works great. I love getting wine and food right at the winery on the property. Plenty of parking, really nice mattress, great decor! We had a wonderful romantic stay and will return this fall!

Great Cape May NJ weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a Wedding at the Willow Creek Winery in Cape May NJ. We were fortunate to find that on the Property of the Winery they had a couple of cottages. We contacted the owner and reserved this cottage for 2 nights. It was fantastic. We were located directly by some of the Grape Vines. I would love to return in the summer time. If you want relaxation this is the place for you.

Made a reservation for this apartment but upon arrival was placed in a different apartment

  • 1 of 5

Renters beware. I booked this apartment for a weekend in September but was placed in a different apartment called the Merlot apartment. As soon as I realized that they had placed us in the wrong the apartment I called the listing agent and let her know the mistake. She said that there had been a computer glitch that booked multiple people in the same apartment for the same days. She claimed that they only realized the mistake when we checked in. However, the person that checked us in never told us that she was taking us to a different apartment. The listing agent said she would look into what could be done for us and call us back. She never did that night. Wanting to give her another chance to rectify the situation, I called her back the next day.

The listing agent offered an extra day stay at the apartment we rented. However, as two teachers this was not possible. I let her know this and was not offered any other compensation. When I got an email to write a review of the apartment, I contacted the listing agent again to see if there was something that could be done. After waiting a week the listing agent has offered no compensation.

For that reason, I am writing this review to warn other renters that this could happen to them. Looking at other reviews of this apartment on other rental sites, I did find a review where the same thing happened this year to another renter, with the same excuse that there was a computer glitch.

If the apartment we were placed in was anywhere equal to the apartment we booked, I might have been disappointed by not enough to write a bad review of the place. However, the apartment we were placed in had no view of the vineyard, no outside seating area, and had a dated kitchen with a rusty refrigerator, and an unusual bathroom. We had booked this apartment specifically for the views and outside seating. I don't think I would have considered this apartment for a weekend and I would never have paid the same amount as the other apartment.

I realize that the listing agent has said that this was a computer glitch. However, I wonder if it was a bait and switch. If you could get two or three renters to rent the same apartment at a high price and then claim there was a glitch and place them in other properties you rent that you could not get the same rent for, I think it would be a win for the rental agency. I am suspicious that this could be the case. Sadly.

Unique, comfy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being on the vineyard with beautiful views from the 3 private outdoor spaces(our favorite part of this apartment). Decor is lovely, and there is lots of natural light. The 2 bathrooms were a nice feature.

So quaint, roomy, and private

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a two night stay in Malvasia Cottage. It is so quaint and plenty of space - 2 floors, including 2 bathrooms, each with a shower. There is also 3 outside areas for sitting and relaxing and taking in the view of the vineyards. After we checked in, we went to the winery for wine tasting, purchased a bottle and ordered carry out, then took it back to the cottage for a delightful lunch on the patio. The cottage location is very close to everything! You can easily bike to the beach. There is a unique farm hidden just to the right of the winery - Beach Plum Farm. You can walk there for a farm fresh breakfast. Overall, we just loved the place! The decor, cleanliness, quietness and convenience made this place the perfect stay while in Cape May.

Wonderful Relaxing little cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! I highly recommend!! This is a cute well decorated cozy place to get away from your hectic lifestyle! Barbara was so easy to work with when scheduling, she accommodated for our late arrival with ease. We got to visit the winery and the staff was so nice, we enjoyed the wine tasting and even got some to go! I was surprised at how nice the winery was, it just added to our pleasant stay.

Thank you for renting this cute cottage! I highly recommend and I'm sure we will visit again!

Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely pleased with this property, it was peaceful and isolated away from Cape May hustle and bustle. Apt is an older farm house I believe, renovated and uniquely decorated. Just perfect for the two of us. Located right on the vineyard, beautiful views, quiet, and a great porch to have your coffee and view the land. It's a really cool find, so glad I chose it. I would suggest grabbing a bite to eat or some wine at the vineyard a walk away or short drive. One nite with had a bite to eat outside there and it was awesome, food good and again the landscape of the vineyard really nice. I would make a few suggestions, but minor. A few more towels and an air freshner, just seemed a little stuffy. But don't get me wrong, very clean and accommodating. We will be back. Thanks for an awesome getaway!!
