My Second Home in Villas

  • 5 of 5

This was a repeat visit in what I hope will be a recurring event for me. With family who have moved to the Cape May area, I am in Villas several times a year for holidays and special events. Having reached a stage in my life where it is no longer exotic or adventurous to sleep on an air mattress in the middle of relatives' homes, I found this fabulous little cottage online, and the rest is history.

With a décor that is airy, spacious, and Pottery-Barn-Meets-Beach, I have spent a number of restful nights in this space. The cottage is ideally located just a few steps from the beach and the "main drag" of Villas. It is very tranquil, and equipped with everything a person could need during a vacation. From kitchenware to restaurant menus to baskets of toiletries, I routinely marvel at the convenience and comfort. Every time I lock up to leave at the end of a visit, I find myself saying, "I wish I could stay longer."

The owner (Amy) is an absolute dream to work with. Attentive and responsive, yet never intrusive, she always makes me feel welcome. As other reviews have mentioned, I look forward every trip to the very thoughtful bottle of wine and beautiful bay sunsets.

I also have to say that the beds are incredibly comfortable. As someone who never sleeps well in unfamiliar settings, I consistently get a great night's rest in either of the two beds. Other family members seeking to escape the din of the holidays have taken advantage of the accommodations and shared similar feedback.

At the risk of creating competition for my visit timeframes, I highly recommend you check out this property. You'll be very glad you did!

Wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My family & our dog spent 4 days exploring Cape May & surrounding areas. The bay beach is roughly 3 short blocks away & Cape May is a very short drive. We spent time walking the beach with Sam, who LOVED it, visited Cape May Brewing, a great little spot, Cold Springs Village & Cold Springs Brewing (right on your route to Capy May), & enjoyed sunset at Cape May Point.

We had some fantastic meals, especially on Thanksgiving at the Peter Shields Inn. Their food was exceptional, as was the atmosphere & service. Also enjoyed a bite at the Boiler Room, in the basement of the Congress Hotel. Never would have known about it without Yelp however! Great place, friendly staff, very good pizza.

The rest of our meals we had at the cottage & Amy made sure we had everything we needed. It was very cozy & we even enjoyed a complimentary bottle of wine & some very addictive candies! I loved finding the basket of toiletries in the bathroom closet in case we forgot anything. Very nice touch.

The cottage was clean & everything worked as it should. It is very small but for our small family it was fine. There is a huge, fenced in yard (another perk for Sam) & an enclosed front porch.

I would definitely recommend staying here & hope I have the opportunity again in the future. Thank you Amy!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. It was immaculate, well-stocked and so comfortable. The owner is very thoughtful, providing everything you might need and more. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly, close to restaurants and shopping, and a short walk to the beach. We hope to come back next year.

The Perfect Cottage - Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to experience a new area in South Jersey, and wanted something quiet and comfortable, and this turned out to be exactly what we were hoping for. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. It is the perfect size for a small family. We loved the enclosed front porch and particularly the back deck where I would sit every morning with a cup of coffee watching the birds in the yard. The yard is quite large and the overhead trees and quiet surroundings make it very relaxing. We even had a few friends over for a cookout, and we were all quite comfortable. The kitchen was very functional and the quality appliances and dinnerware certainly came in handy.

I particularly loved the beach down the street, and actually preferred walking down the street to the quiet beach on the bay instead of driving to Cape May's beach. It was incredibly relaxing and such a pleasure having the beach to myself, and I had the pleasure of catching a few wonderful sunsets as well! I also brought my bicycle along and the quiet neighborhood was great for a relaxing bike ride.

The video library, books and binder of information about the area were also very helpful and much appreciated. We rented the cottage two separate weeks, and I plan to return again next summer. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Perfectly manicured and well kept. Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by arriving to a bottle of wine and candy. A short walk to the Bay and the beach was beautiful. I can only imagine how nice it will be when we are able to re-visit in the summer and use the spacious furnished deck. The beds were comfortable and the decor was inviting and relaxing. We didn't need a thing. Everything was there to cook and even do laundry! We will definitely return. This is our new Go-to place for Cape May.

Pleasurable cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage! Tastefully decorated and cozy surroundings. Went down for a wine weekend and was able to secure this cute house with no problem on short notice. Owner was a pleasure to work with. House is conveniently located to get to the Cape May "points of interest" as well as many wineries. Owner even provides a book with surrounding info...great help for those that don't know the area.

Location

Activity and Interests

Walk to the Bay beach and watch the sandpipers run up and down the sand, or flip a few horseshoe crabs that have lost their way. Swim or sun or even bring your rod & reel and fish right from the beach. Head in to Cape May if you wish to swim at the guarded beaches.

**Enjoy the use of four Cape May beach tags during your stay!**

Feel like shopping? Hop in the car and in 10 minutes you'll find yourself in downtown Cape May where you can check out the Washington Street Mall or the beach shops. While there take in a historic house tour, rent bikes, take a carriage ride or simply stroll and enjoy the scenery. Like antiquing? Hop back in the car and you're

sure to find plenty.

Getting hungry? Check out any one of Cape May's plentiful restaurants. An old favorite is the Lobster House, enjoy cocktails on the schooner out back while waiting for your table. The Mad Batter serves up a wonderful brunch on their front porch. The Blue

Pig at Congress Hall has great outdoor seating. And if you feel like splurging, make a reservation (before you come!) for Tisha's on the mall. The food is fabulous, and it's a BYOB so bring your favorite bottle of wine.

Closer to the cottage, and right on the Bay is Harpoon Henry's. This popular local spot is great place to grab a quick lunch. Or better yet, grab a chair on the deck, order a cocktail and watch the sunset over the Bay. It can be breathtaking and we think it's a fantastic way to spend an evening at the shore!

For the serious golfer in the group, you'll find several challenging golf courses within a half hour drive. For the not so serious golfer, you'll find a driving range and a par 3 course just down the road from the cottage. And for the miniature golfers, there are a couple of local places and also a few in Cape May.

Birdwatchers and nature lovers you are in paradise here, but you already know that! Enjoy the Cape May Bird Observatories, Cape May Point State Park, Higbee Beach, Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge (Cape May Meadows), Nummy Island, Stone Harbor Point, Avalon Seawatch, and Belleplain State Forest.

Party boats, dolphin & whale watching tours, charter fishing excursions and boat rentals are just a short drive from the cottage. Or how about an afternoon at the Cape May Zoo, Historic Cold Spring Village or touring the local lighthouses? The possibilities are endless!

And don't forget about Wildwood! 15 minutes and you'll be on the boardwalk enjoying all that the shore has to offer including amusement rides and water parks.
