We had never been to the Cape May area before renting this cottage, but now that we've visited, I know we'll be coming back! The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable and spacious. We felt at home right away. The wifi was able to support all our gadgets and the central air was fabulous on those hot afternoons.
The thing that sets this cottage apart from all others though, is the view of the bay and the beach at your door. That is what made this vacation special. I went beach-combing everyday and found sea glass and Cape May diamonds. We enjoyed long, peaceful walks on the beach, and out into the bay on the sandbars at low tide. The bay is not for swimming, but the abundance of marine life more than makes up for that. The gulls and horseshoe crabs were always entertaining, we saw whales and dolphins, and we even watched ospreys dive for fish from the comfort of the patio. If I was so inclined, I could have foregone shoes for the entire vacation while staying at this cottage.
We also enjoyed the very easy trip into Cape May for shopping and restaurants. Our 2 favorite restaurants were right in Villas though, The Back Bay Bistro and Fish and Fancy.
Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. But we'll definitely be visiting again!
