Awesome, tranquil, peaceful, secluded!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It was the best of both worlds....a bayside retreat with gorgeous beaches just a car ride away. What a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the beach towns and the drive to Stone Harbor and/or Cape May isn't too far. We are bird watchers so we loved the daily eagle visits. We enjoyed trying our hand at crabbing and we LOVED walking down to the end of the lane to watch the sunset each evening. The BEST part was that we got to bring our girls (shihtzus) with us. I couldn't imaging them being in a kennel...they are our kids! Thank you for this little piece of paradise!! Dill & Ken are the best! ~Dennis & Yvonne Vukovcan and Zola & Zada too!!

The most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were comfortable immediately and having our little shih tzu with us was a bonus-no worries. We had some not perfect weather but it didn't matter, we were in a perfect place. Most people say it is always nice to get home and in the past we have said the same but not this time. We didn't want to leave. We only left the property two times. The remainder of the week we were content to stay at our bay paradise.

Beautiful, Quiet, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect, exactly as described, and exactly what we were looking for. My wife and I really needed a 'reset' and that is what we go!

We know South Jersey pretty well and found this place on VRBO. Once we got near the place we realized that we had been on that secluded stretch of coast before a few years ago. We had just come from a couple nights at Caesar's in AC and had or fill of noise and lights and time to relax.

The house is perfect, has everything you need short of food and drinks. The pier extends out into the ocean. The fishing that week was excellent and got quite exciting a couple of times! The sound of nothing but the breeze, the waves, and the birds was a perfect soothing balm to our hectic lives. We went and walked 18 at Cape May National GC for a little exercise as well.

DIll was very helpful and a wonderful hostess, we will be back in the summer with our kids...and i suppose that is the best review of all, a return customer.

Clean house with fantastic views and quiet environment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a short stay near the water toward the end of the summer. I was incredibly lucky to find this property which has a 3 night minimum stay. A rare find. The photos are true to what you experience.

Dill checked us in and very kindly gave us local and house information. The house was spotless, the bedding is comfortable and even though we didn't need it, she had even prepared the Murphy bed for us, saying it might be nice to enjoy hearing the water from bed. How thoughtful was that?

We love the ocean so we opted for Avalon beach, a 35 minute ride. After coming home from an enjoyable day at the beach we had the tranquility of the bay and eventual sunsets to enjoy from the deck. We were very luck for our good weather and both breakfasts and dinners were eaten on the deck.

Dill and Ken work hard to see that their tenants are comfortable. They are upstanding, good people.

nasty nasty nasty

  • 1 of 5

very disappointed. did not expect to have to travel 40 minutes to cape may. advertised as cape may but in reality it is in a very marshy area with flies and fleas. accommodation not very nice. needs new towels, sheets furniture and window treatments. sink in kitchen backing up and garbage disposal not working. No restaurants , can not walk anywhere because of the bugs. bathroom extremely tight, Plus the owner lives upstairs. Have no idea why the reviews state a short ride to beaches and cape may. not a vacation spot with amenities. the only plus is the view. Left the next day. spent the whole night killing flies. really think I should receive a refund

Owner's Response: My response to the following review to our getaway is devistating. ken and I built this house 21/2 years ago and decided to rent our home and to share the beauty of this area. We look forward to every new family. In response to your negative and insulting review I will respond as follows; Location- we made location clear before payment was made. Beaches- we are surrounded by beaches. We located on a nature reserve There are flies but depending on the wind direction Fleas- we do not have them the home is kept up with exterminator. As to window treatments and Furnature that's rediculious. Owner occupied apartment- yes we were there unfortunately ken had back surgery June 14th and is still healing otherwise we would be in florida at other property. We try very hard to to please our guests you can not please everyone all the time 41 REVIEWS GAVE US 5 STARS but this lady was just a mean person.

A hidden gem!Beautiful,Clean,Spacious,Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place is a little bit of paradise. My Husband and I came for our anniversary last September. We fished ,crabbed, bbq'd, read and relaxed off of this big wonderful deck! The view is Amazing! Picture postcard perfect. The front and back of the house has water views. There is a little beach a few doors down , if you need to play in the sand. The house is 5 star . Clean, beautiful, comfortable and has everything you could want. The back of the house overlooking the deck is all sliding glass doors , so you always have the view. Dell the owner was amazing and I felt like I new her always. She was great and could not do enough for us. It felt like Home! Mariann, Long Island, New York
