This home felt like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing from check in with Lori to check out. From the moment you walk through the gate you have the amazing deck area, just beyond that is the bay. First thing you see when you walk in the house is the breathtaking master bedroom with amazing views of the bay and a private deck. As you proceed upstairs, again breathtaking panoramic views of the bay. The house is very nicely furnished, furniture is comfortable, beds are very comfortable, showers are great (including the outdoor shower), kitchen is very well stocked. I can't think of anything Kathleen didn't think of to make this house a home. Amazing to watch the Dolphins out in the bay, listen to the seagulls, watch the tides, and so peaceful to watch the moon reflect on the water. Can't get a better view of the sunsets. Plenty to do at the house with the kayaks, outdoor kitchen, deck area and beach chairs. We rented bikes and rode all over as well as a great neighborhood for walking if you choose not to walk along the beach. Great restaurants within walking distance. Such a comfortable home, nicely decorated with great personal touches AND pet friendly, that was the ticket for us. No need to leave but close to so many things if you do wish to sightsee.

Owner's Response: I'm always happy and grateful for the reviews. Of course I'm partial to the Round House, but more than that is this slice of heaven on the west coast of the Jersey shore. Still the best sunsets, making it our little 'Key West'. Thank you for the wonderful review and I hope you'll return! Kathleen

Fell in love with this house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, not sure where to start! My partner and I and our 2 pups were fortunate enough to stay in this paradise for 8 days! From Lori checking us to Kathy calling the cable company to get us the channel for Penguins playoffs the entire experience WAY exceeded our expectations. Every detail accounted for in the house, well stocked kitchen, cooking in the outdoor kitchen was great! The views and the sunsets were beyond compare! The bay breeze and sound of the waves was very relaxing. The house is immaculate, we did not want to leave! If you decide to stay here you will NOT be disappointed!!! We cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm happy you loved your stay at the Round House. Taking a vacation should be an excellent experience. Its usually the only time every year one gets to 'leave their world', take a break and recharge. I also agree about the sunsets and views here. Nothing else compares at the Jersey shore. I look forward to your return! Kathleen

Second time around was even better!

  • 5 of 5

My retired parents and I returned to the round house for a second year and it was even better this time. We settled in quickly and were able to melt away our cares instantly. We had a variety of odd weather including strong scary winds, cold, temps, warm temps, storms, warm sun, and gorgeous sky. Nothing could stop us from enjoying ourselves. Our two dogs loved soaking up the sun - whether on the deck or in the yard.

Kathy and her team are just the best! If you are looking for great people with a beautiful home - THIS IS IT! Easy to work with and schedule, and the house is IMMACULATE with decor that makes you feel like you are in a magazine!

I'm sure Cape May has loads to offer, but this house keeps you plenty happy and content. I plugged in my ipad to Kathy's great speakers and we had Pandora radio catering to us all week.

The description of this house is dead on, maybe not even as good as the truth. They aren't lying: you won't want to leave!!

See you next year Round House! :)

Owner's Response: I loved that you, your parents and furry children came back again! It's the highest compliment to have return visitors to the Round House. I try to keep it like "a place I would want to rent", so I'm very grateful for your review. You guys were wonderful and I look forward to your return! Thank you, Kathleen

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

I searched high and low for what I thought was the perfect get-away for us and one day stumbled upon this beauty of a house. It is bright and immaculately clean, beautifully decorated with breathtaking views. The sunsets are amazing and the dolphin sightings in the morning were a hit with everyone. I especially loved the quiet and peaceful setting. I have big eaters but cooking in this kitchen was a breeze as it was so well-stocked. This is the first time I ever rented a vacation house. Kathleen was accommodating and a pleasure to work with and made the process super-easy. I'd like to point out that although my daughter uses a wheelchair for longer walks, she had no problems using the steps. Staying here made her so happy and was just what the doctor ordered! God-willing we'll be back some day soon to enjoy everything the round house has to offer.

Only gets better each visit

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying here and can't wait for the third. If you want to relax & unwind, this is the place. We went for our anniversary and it couldn't have been more perfect. Long walks on the beach with our pups, afternoons fishing in front of the house and wonderful dinners at local restaurants. The home is beyond beautiful and extraordinarily clean. Just a perfect vacation & anniversary for us. I think even the pups were sad when it was time to leave. Can't wait to go back!

Terrific Views_Beautiful House_Wonderful Owner_Pet-Friendly_Many Things to Do

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home to stay in for our week vacation. The owner was so gracious to allow pets - my daughter was thrilled that she could bring her two small very well-behaved dogs who loved walking the beach. When you first walk up to the top floor where the living room is, you feel like you are surrounded by water. It is so lovely and relaxing. I could have sat on the deck all day and just watch the waves and sunsets. Now be aware that you are on the bay and the water isn't the same as the ocean for swimming. The beach is pretty much left in its natural state. We were there in early June and the horse shoe crabs were mating. This was amazing to see. However, it did pretty much prevent you from playing in the water because of the mating. Apparently this happens only for a couple weeks out of the year - late May and early June. The ocean and historic town of Cape May is only 10 minutes away. My daughter and her husband and kids bought a weekly beach pass and went every day. We loved the town of Cape May with its unique shops. My husband and I also visited many of the wineries and even went into Atlantic City to visit the Casinos a couple of days. One day we went to Wildwood to walk the boardwalk. On the one and only cloudy day we had we went to the Cape May Zoo. This zoo has over 200 acres and was just wonderful to visit and it is free. So as you can see, not only can you stay in a beautiful home, the beach and other things to do are close by. We will definitely be back. Also I want to note that our security deposit was returned within one week of our return home. We couldn't have been more than pleased with everything. This was also the first time that we went through VRBO and it was a good experience and would use it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Once again I am thrilled that the Round House and the surrounding area was the perfect vacation spot. A lot of the things you guys did are what my family does when they come for vacation. If ones looking for action, the activities are endless….or for relaxation and unwinding, the bay is perfect. I hope you will return again!
