About Wendy & Alex

Wendy and Alex discovered Cape May in 2006 and love spending our summers in this area. We both grew up in Pennsylvania. We enjoy sharing this property with our guests and work hard to make sure the house is clean and comfortable.

Wendy & Alex purchased this house in 2011

Why Wendy & Alex chose Villas

Our guests tell us this is a like a "home away from home". This house Is located is a very nice neighborhood near the bay beach entrance and close to cox hall creek which is great for biking. This area also has a lot of trees, so it has a very natural feel to it. The house is very comfortable and it has excellent flow. The back deck is also a great place to relax and enjoy family and friends. I love to walk on the bay beach, so the location is perfect. It is also convenient to shopping within a few miles.

What makes this house unique

The bay beach is one of the best kept secrets. There is something for everyone here! Birding, kayaking, walking, biking, and fishing! Staying in a real home provides lots of space for everyone and makes your stay much more enjoyable. You will feel like a "local"!

As expected and more !

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and fresh when we arrived and had everything we needed for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. It is one block from the quiet Bay beach, very convenient for young kids (5 and 7) and the sunset. We appreciated the greeting in person, first time ever in many years of beach house rental! Alex is really a customer oriented person.

Everyone had space and kitchen was very well equipped. It was a 10-15 min drive to the Cape May beaches where the waves were more exciting (Thanks for the beach tags well appreciated). We enjoyed also the free beaches at Wildwood Crest (20 min drive). We always found close to beach parking spaces at around 10 am at both places. We would definitely stay again next time we visit Cape May! One more thing: we appreciated the extras included (Beach cart, boards, etc. available in the garage) and the night-lights in bathrooms and around the house. Next time we visit the Wildwood area we look forward to rent again.

easy to find, quiet neighborhood, short walk to the bay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, smelled kinda unused, would suggest a deodorizer, some outside work needed but didn't interfere with our stay 10-15 minute drive to most area attractions. Loved the short walk to the bay, not crowded, easy to relax and unwind.

Great location! Great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Wendy and Alex's house over the long weekend. It was one block from the quiet bay beach so very convenient for the kiddos. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. Everyone had more than enough space and kitchen was very well equipped compared to other homes we have rented in the past. The house was a 10-15 min drive to downtown cape may as well. We would definitely stay again next time we visit Cape May!

Clean house.. Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at this bay house! Myself and my husband and our 3 boys stayed the entire week; While my sister and brother in-law and their 3 kids stayed a few days. The house was very roomy so we had plenty of space for everyone! We spent most of our time at the bay which was only a short walk. This was a great spot for us since our kids are young; the water was calm and there were very few people so my kids were able to run and play and I was able to relax! Cape May Beaches were only about 10-15 minutes in the car and Wildwoods was 20 minutes. We did the Wildwoods Boardwalk a few nights and the kids had a blast. Alex and Wendy were really great to us! We contacted them a few times during our trip (our car broke down and I called them one evening. They answered immediately and recommended a mechanic). The house was clean and had everything we needed! Thank you Alex and Wendy for a great first family vacation!
