We just got back from our first visit to Cape May, NJ and it is a truly wonderful place. But warning - if you stay at the Thomas Webster House - you can expect to have your beach memories marred by a message on your answering machine upon arrival back home. Eventhough you have hauled the garbage down 3 flights of stairs, cleaned out the refrigerator and hand washed all dishes (no dishwasher), you will receive a nasty call that the sink (malfunctioning garbage disposal) and stove were not cleaned "up to par" and the girl that works for them complained that the kitchen floor needed cleaning. IMAGINE! A check for $550 for 2 nights on a 3rd floor rental, several blocks from the beach and the proprietor has the nerve to call us and say we had dissappointed her! This after many "friendly reminder" notes left all around the place about closing windows, being quiet, hauling garbage, and washing all sand off your feet before entering "her house." P-L-E-A-S-E! Do not stay here - this woman wants to live in a private residence at the beach, not run a business.
P.S. No paper towels, no box of tissues and we had to ask for an extra roll of toilet paper .
P.P.S. Harry - the gardens are beautiful!
