Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay! The cottage was spotless and the air conditioning was a welcome relief during the week of high temperatures. We loved the daily walk with our dog on the beach. The cottage has a private path that made going on the beach very easy. It was very dog friendly place from the working hose to wash off sand to the dog bowls. The best part was the view of the bay and the sunsets. The owners were very easy to work with and we're kind enough to provide some welcome goodies.

Wind & Weeds Cottage is a Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wind & Weeds is a charming cottage with the dunes and Delaware Bay for your backyard. The cottage is charmingly decorated and very clean.

We loved the screened in porch and deck with the views of the bay and spectacular sunsets! You have your own path to the beach. Our dog loved walking on the beach .

We enjoyed Audubon walking tours and a sunset boat tour in Cape May. We saw many interesting birds and my son got many great photos, some at the cottage. The cottage is near the ocean beaches and boardwalk. We enjoyed shopping in Cape May also.

Wind & Weeds cottage is a relaxing and quiet retreat, but near many interesting sights and activities. We highly recommend the cottage as a great vacation spot!

This well-maintained artistically decorated house provided everything we needed for the perfect family vacation--literally, there is just about everything you would need at the house --from beach chairs to just about any cooking utensil you could want! Outstanding sunsets with easy access to the beach made for easy lazy days and interesting beach walks. The screened-in porch was a great gathering place for evening conversation and drinks while the interior living space had plenty of comfortable seating, TV, and CD/radio player (which we used a lot). The closet is filled with plenty of games for evening fun if you need them and the washer and dryer are practically new (although we did not use). The kitchen had everything you would need to cook (microwave, newer stove, toaster oven, drip coffee maker, dishes, utensils, etc.) along with a newer outside grill. Bedrooms are pleasantly decorated with plenty of storage space. Air conditioning works great and was good to have since it was very hot (~90-95 degrees F) during out stay for the week. The outdoor shower is really nice to have when coming back from the beach and to use as an alternative to the inside one if you like.

The location of the property is very convenient to shops, restaurants, and food markets. It's an easy drive to Cape May, Stone Harbor, and local wineries for wine tastings. Finally, the owners are great to deal with and the communication is fantastic. I would recommend this property without hesitation:)

A peaceful respite in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Carol & Les are very friendly, helpful & accommodating hosts

The cottage is decorated in such an appealing way.

We enjoyed going down on the beach through the path. Just beware of those sticky brambles.They are sharp and stick..

Our dogs loved walking the beach. One of them loves catching frisbee on it too.

The screened porch was so nice and there were other options for sitting outside as well.

The view was awesome. I've never experienced sunset at 180 degrees.

Overall, we had a great time

Overall, it was an awesome experience.


I wish we could have stayed there for several weeks.
