Location, location, location! Amazing sunsets & only home with direct beach access.
We have been vacationing at our beloved Cape May Point for the past 30 years and "Laughing Pines" was absolutely the best rental property ever. The location was what first attracted us -nestled in the dunes with a semi-private path to the beach - no street lights between you and the Atlantic, amazing! The house itself accommodated our multi-generational family very nicely. Lovely bedrooms, comfy living rooms, a cook's kitchen and second floor deck which we congregated on constantly! The amenities were incredible: beach toys, bikes, telescope, linens, grill, etc! The owner was extremely responsive to our needs. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back...
This is our third time renting this house. Our first two times were vastly different than our third......and likely last. The house was not clean and had ants in the kitchen. When we told the owner, we were simply told there's bug spray in the closet. We did not raise the lack of cleanliness when we checked in, this was a mistake. We left the house much cleaner than we found it. Subsequent to our departure we were accused of excessive nighttime noise, breaking items in the house, and leaving the house very dirty, all fundamentally untrue. We cleaned the house prior to our departure. Additionally, there's a "cleaning crew", who is supposed to clean the house. As to the noise, we were in bed at or before 10pm each night. Further, my parents, who are over 70 were staying as well. This accusation was a falsehood and only came up after our departure. Lastly, we were accused of having excessive trash. The trash area is unsuitable for a house this size. I am at a loss as to how to limit trash for 15+ people. All of our trash was in the limited trash cans or large garbage bags, so I am not clear on the issue.
If you are going to rent this house, I would recommend documenting every blemish, and flaw otherwise you risk being errantly financially accountable. We were very disappointed in our dealings with the owner. The house may seem like a great deal, renters beware.
I can't imagine why anyone would pay $200 or more a night at a hotel when they could stay in a six-bedroom private residence literally a few feet from the beach for what equates to be less. Your beautiful home equipped with not one but two split level gathering kitchens was a nice bonus. The value added amenities of towels, chairs and bikes helped with packing requirements as well. Thank you for sharing your home we hope to return!
Beautiful unique home on the beach was a wonderful place for our large extended family! Quiet location in the dunes was calm and peaceful yet close enough the groceries and amusements! Everything you need is provided - tons of bikes, boogie boards, towels etc and an ample kitchen to cook for a crowd. Thank you so much for sharing your home.
Wonderful house, great location - will definitely be back!
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was very inviting, and we found everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space for both families to spread out in the house, so we weren't on top of each other. My favorite spot was on the 2nd floor balcony, a chair in the shade where I could read outside and enjoy the view. Being able to walk to the water in just seconds was a big plus, not a big deal if you forgot something and had to go back to the house. Cape May Point was quiet and relaxing, and plenty of shops restaurants and activities were close by.
