A Wonderful Choice
The property owner, Barbara, was an absolute dream to work with. Extremely responsive, friendly and willing to give recommendations for local restaurants, shops, etc. In general, she did everything possible to make our stay a great one. The house was large, lovely, very user-friendly (especially for an old Victorian house) and the kitchen was fabulous for happy hour & dinners with our weekend group. Location can't be beat. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars on the cleanliness was because one of the coffee makers wasn't cleaned out from a past renter and had become a bit gross, which we cleaned. ...But this is really something minor, and something that the cleaning service should have checked, not something the owner had a lot of control over. The rest of the house was definitely very clean. I would recommend this property.
Thank you, Melissa! I appreciate the feedback as I am always wanting to know what contributed to a wonderful stay and what could be done better. The lack of cleaning of the coffee maker will be appropriately addressed so that they are not missed again. And, I am always available to handle anything like this immediately.
Can't imagine a better place
The location, facilities, owner-communication, and overall uniqueness of the property made for a perfect week. If you're looking for an unforgettable place that will make an ordinary week at the beach, extraordinary - this is it! Having so many bedroom (and bathroom) options, magnificent kitchens, a yard, decks, grilling, and parking means everyone is happy!
SPECTACULAR Magical Experience
Our extended family of 3 generations started our Holiday celebration in the Abbey. EVERYTHING was magnificent. The home had the nostalgic charm and the modern conveniences of an updated kitchen. Our family made wonderful memories with the backdrop of the Abbey and Cape May. We enjoyed the Cape May parade, Carriage rides, shopping, restaurants, sunrises, sunsets, brisk walks on the promenade and most of all the love of family. We could not have asked for a better experience. The house had everything we needed, was clean and well kept and decorated like an authentic Victorian Holiday. Barbara was fabulous to work with...she answered all our questions in a very timely manner, provided information and recommendations as asked and encouraged us to contact her with any issues. HIGHLY recommend this beautiful, magical and wonderful home. You will have an awesome experience!
AnnMarie and her family could not have been better guests - they are the kind of family that we LOVE to see make memories at The Abbey and appreciate beyond words their respect and care of this beautiful landmark property so lovingly restored. We hope they will return again and again!
Charming, spacious, and impeccably maintained
The photos do not do this memorable home justice! The rooms were each charming, unique, and comfortable. We had a family reunion here with people from MA, CT, NY, PA, NJ, and TX. The large wrap-around porch and side patio were continually occupied and so lovely. Our little ones enjoyed having a grassy yard too. The layout, with nine bedrooms and nine full bathrooms was perfect for hosting our group of smaller families, because we each had some space for peace and quiet and privacy when we wanted that. There were multiple gathering spaces for different groups to chat and mingle in the evenings between the kitchens and sitting rooms. Barbara was a pleasure to work with, and my large and diverse family all were completely satisfied. We loved strolling the town, lounging on the beach, and rocking on the porch. I recommend without reservation.
And your family was a delight to host - communicative and respectful, leaving the house neat and clean and in good order - every host’s dream! I would happily welcome your group back any time!
Wonderful Place for our Family Weekend
We’ve been renting The Abbey for the past three years for our female cousins weekend. The Abbey has so many wonderful features for such a weekend...a large fully equipped kitchen, wonderful porches and outdoor facilities, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and an incredible location...close to the beach and historic Washington Square!
It is always fun to have repeat guests who continue to find the house perfect for their stay - we work hard to keep it well maintained and even updated - so we appreciate it when that is noticed and complimented! Thank you for always caring so well for the house, too! Looking forward!
Wonderful Stay at the Abbey
I wanted a special place to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends and family. The Abbey was a perfect location and house to celebrate. The kitchen is perfect to prepare meals and gather around. The bedrooms are all lovely and clean. The furniture is exquisite for those of us that appreciate antiques. Plenty of parking for everyone and wonderful owners. Cant wait to go back one day.
