This is the second year in a row we have stayed in the cottage behind the main house. It's a little small, but it's perfect for our family of three. It's well stocked, has everything we need for our "home away from home." The one thing I appreciate most about this place is that it is CLEAN, 100% CLEAN from top to bottom!! That's the main reason we returned this year and plan to again next year. It's in a perfect location, you can literally park your car and not have to move it until you leave. The beach, shopping, restaurants, bike rentals, arcade, mini-golf, etc. is all within a very short walking distance.
I noticed someone stating a negative about the motion-sensitive lights during the night. These lights worked perfect for us. While coming home from shopping in the evening, it was nice to have these lights turn on automatically when you reach the back porch. And there's both blinds and heavy curtains to close at the windows, no light shines through at all.
As for not getting to use the main porch, I totally understand that this porch is reserved for the main house guests. There's a porch out back and an endless list of places to relax in Cape May so....so what!!
