Overview

Villas House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath directly on the Beach with Spectacular Bay Views. Sleeps 6

The bay front cottage sits amid windswept pines on the sandy dunes of Delaware Bay in Cape May County. Enjoy unobstructed bay views and gorgeous sunsets from the patio, or from the spacious open plan living/dining room with picture windows on 3 sides. Take walks along the beach, bike along the shore or launch your kayak in front of the house; you may run across a pod of dolphins.

For a change of pace, visit Victorian Cape May, located just 8 miles south, with its ocean beaches, quaint shops and restaurants. Or head over to the Wildwoods, 8 miles east. The kids will love the large ocean beaches for body surfing and skim boarding and the amusement rides and waterparks on the boardwalk.

After a full day of activity, return to the tranquility of the bay front cottage. Fire up the grill for a BBQ; Watch the most amazing sunsets while having dinner. Then star gaze or view the moon rise/set from the patio while listening to the lapping waves.

Book directly with owner to waive service fee.

No pets.

No smoking in house.

Families and responsible adults only.

Overall a great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Even though the air conditioning was not working when we arrived, Paula had it fixed immediately making our week a wonderfully relaxing time. Take advantage of the Ferry to Lewes, DE and have a great time Beach hopping! Great location and comfortable cottage.

The Beach for a Backyard!

  • 5 of 5

The patio is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures. There are purple cone flowers, phlox, and other flowers blooming in a garden plot in the middle of the sand to complete the picture. The bay is just a few steps away. The beach is nicest when the tide is partly to mostly in (when it's out there's a bit of slime and some biting flies to deal with). We especially enjoyed sitting on the bench at the end of the pathway and watching the laughing gulls, herring gulls, flocks of smaller shorebirds, and even an egret or two. There are plenty of dragonflies and butterflies, too, and even a bunny here and there. The interiors are wood beams and paneling, lighthouse art, and seashell themed; the kitchen is well-appointed. Useful Tip: if the central A/C stops working, check the circuit breaker panel (in the room with the bunk beds).

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Paula's cozy beach cottage with our family of four. The cottage was everything we were looking for! From walks on the beach looking for shells, to the close proximity to Cape May, we always had something to do. The view from the patio was so relaxing and the sunsets were gorgeous!

Thank you Paula!

Bayfront Cottage

Wonderful place to stay if you need some peace and quiet! Loved how we were by ourselves and didn't have loud neighbors or a lot of noise at all!:) Hope to come back sometime!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful week on our family ( of 6) vacation. Paula, the owner of the cottage, was most hospitable. The cottage was just perfect. Warm and welcoming, we felt right at home with all the accommodations we could possibly need to make our stay so pleasurable. The location was excellent. It was just a short drive to the center of Cape May, Wildwood and many other attractions, beaches and fine restaurants. There was something for everyone to do nearby which included Jet Skiing, Parasailing, Whale Cruises, Ghost Hunting Tours, Theater, Shopping and of course, searching for Cape May diamonds on Sunset Beach! Most of all, we all enjoyed taking strolls on the bay beach, relaxing on the private patio and witnessing the most beautiful sunsets over the bay right in the backyard of the cottage! It couldn't have been nicer! We would definitely recommend a stay at "The Grey Lady"!!!

Very relaxing and enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the closeness to the beach. The pine trees surrounding the cottage and the "sand yard" reminded us of our camping days when we were first married. We spent our early years camping in Michigan around Traverse City.

The closeness to the culture of Cape May was a plus. The many restaurants and hiking trails were a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed dining at The Lobster House,the Perry Shields Inn, and the Ebbitt Room at the Virginian Hotel (romantic).

We already have and will continue to recommend the Bay Front Cottage to others. It was a wonderful fit for the two of us. But also would be good for a family of 4.
