Overview

About the property

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

The bay front cottage sits directly on the beach amid windswept pines on the sandy dunes of Delaware Bay. Enjoy unobstructed water views and gorgeous sunsets over the bay from the private 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 Wildwood, 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 or prepare dinner in the fully equipped kitchen. Watch the most amazing sunsets while having dinner on the private patio or the dining room. Then star gaze or view the moon rise/set from the patio while roasting marshmallows and listening to the lapping waves.

The house has central A/C, WIFI, and cable. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals and has a full size refrigerator , stove and dishwasher, and a washer and dryer are in the laundry room. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The living room has a full size futon and a queen size sofa bed. The living/dining room has picture windows on three sides, allowing unobstructed views of the beach, the dunes , the water, and amazing sunsets over the bay.

The private outside patio is just off the living/dining room and has the same amazing views. There is a teak outdoor dining table, several loungers and a small fit pit for roasting marshmallows. A Weber grill is provided for grilling. The outside shower has hot and cold water.

Nice little cottage with beautiful view of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

Great indoor and outdoor space! As soon as we walked in the house and caught view of the bay we were in awe! Cottage is just adorable and comfortable with great pieces of furniture - photos do not do it justice. Plenty of room in entrance/ mud room for gear, etc. Nice kitchen and nice big combo living/dining area. Bedrooms are small but comfortable with everything you need. The house is right next to bay beach access - just a perfect location!

a slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This quaint, welcoming cottage is the perfect location, away from the crowds, yet close enough to enjoy the local sights & sounds of Cape May & Wildwood areas. The cottage is beautifully decorated, fresh & immaculate, plus fully equipped with everything you could ever need. The kitchen has all the appliances you could ever want(how many places have an espresso machine?). The patio is very serene & relaxing, it has a great fire pit & comfortable chairs to enjoy the sound of the waves in the bay immediately beyond the dunes. The patio also has a great teak dining table to have a dinner feast on or to just have your coffee in the morning. This is the perfect place for long walks/runs on the beach & to observe the various bird & sea life. We were lucky enough to see a pair of Bald eagles on a sandbar early one morning.

The obvious attention to details reflects the owners care & consideration for their guests to have the best possible experience. Paula(the owner) was easy to communicate with at all times.

This cottage was the best place to relax, renew & restore ourselves. We plan on going back next year to enjoy the serenity & the views. Next year we are plan on bringing our adult children & their spouses. Thank you Paula for offering/sharing your slice of heaven to people to truly restore themselves. Your place is a gem.

Serene, unspoiled beauty; fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a delightful week in this cottage, with its gorgeous view of the Delaware Bay and the surrounding dunes. The cottage is charming, comfortable, clean, and stocked with plenty of equipment for indoor and outdoor living. Its patio provides a lovely place to enjoy the outdoors at any time of day or night. The bay beach -- easily accessed by a path alongside cottage -- is ideal for strolling and watching sunsets. We loved observing all the wildlife that visited the beach and the cottage yard -- horseshoe crabs, rabbits, butterflies, gulls, sandpipers, dragonflies, etc.; and, we were thrilled to see bald eagles resting on a sandbar at low tide each morning! The cottage was a peaceful base from which to explore other parts of the cape and make the 15-minute trip to Cape May town and its many amenities. We found lots of good restaurants and interesting places to visit in the area. We're so grateful that we were able to begin and end each busy day in this serenely beautiful setting.
