The best in the Villas !

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the Cape May area since 2000. As I recall our first stay @ the cottage was 2013. Our first year & all since, we have been treated as old friends.

The cottage it's self is EXCELLENT; decor, more than just comfortable & accessible to the South Jersey area.

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect. The home was well appointed and had everything we needed. We also could not have asked for a better location with its private path to the bay beach as well as within 10-15 minutes drive to Cape May and it's great food and lovely beaches. But the best part by far of staying at Carol and Les' property were the amazing sunsets. They were truly breathtaking. Cannot wait to go back!

This home was so comfortable, with perfect views of the sunset every evening from the porch area. Who could ask for anything more! Thank you Les and Carol for remembering such details that made our stay so relaxing!!

Beautiful little home on the bay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed a week in your lovely beach home. Walked for miles on the beach, enjoyed many beautiful sunsets from the patio, loved mornings on the deck or on the porch with our coffee. Went to the Cape May Winery, and had a delicious anniversary dinner at

the Washington Inn in Cape May. Thank you for sharing your home and hospitality with us.

This is the second year in a row that our family rented the Wind & Weeds from Carol & Les. There are no more accommodating, and hospitable, owners than they - from the "welcome" gifts to the very smooth rental process to the updating that they have done to the property.

The house is very well-kept and tastefully, and whimsically, decorated including a very solidly stocked kitchen. A very tranquil location with exquisite views/sunsets and a very short drive to Cape May! We have been renting "down the shore" for close to 20 yrs. and, for our tastes/interests, have not found a more perfect property. We are already planning our trip back next year!

Perfect Summer Spot

  • 5 of 5

Super cute comfortable cottage on the bay with private path to your own little spot on the beach and perfect sunset viewing with a glass of wine. There are lots of other amenities including a sparkling new bathroom which was a nice upgrade from last year, and a driveway that runs along the back of this house and the neighbor, which is perfect if you have a boat. Wind and Weeds is centrally located with easy access to Cape May, Wildwood, local wineries, and just about anywhere else you would want to go. Plus, there are several notable stores/restaurants nearby including Flecks and Milky Way ice cream w/mini golf, Back Bay Bistro (great breakfasts on the weekend), Acme, Wawa, and CVS. Owners are very nice and easy to work with as well. This was our second time back and we enjoyed it as much this time as we did the first. Can't go wrong renting this place!
