3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Nice week end during Thanksgiving! Almost alone on the beach!
Nice rental, clean , quiet and comfortable .Just on the beach, it s good for long walking and relaxing. We recommend it! Good restaurants in the area and the zoo very interesting to visit with kids

Room Tip: You have to take your car for Cape may downtown ( about 10 mn)

My husband, wee dog and I spent a week at Dolphin Watch recently. We wanted something comfortable and clean with a view of the water and beach. Dolphin Watch certainly met and exceeded those requirements! Natalie (the owner) was a helpful and gracious host, while not being intrusive. The neighborhood is quiet and the locals are friendly. We slept very well and felt quite at home in this cozy beach house! Natalie has made sure all amenities are available and that her guests enjoy their stay in Cape May. The location is ideal with shops, restaurants and sights a short drive away. There is also a restaurant right down the street within walking distance. Aptly named, we did see dolphins in the bay right from the upper deck. We look forward to returning next year!

We stayed at dolphin watch at the end of December. It is a very comfortable and clean rental. The owner Natalie made everything very easy and she was very available for any questions. So nice to be able to take our dog with us, she really enjoyed herself! We were so impressed with the bay front location that we are going back at the end of June to stay for a week.

I slept like a baby in the large well appointed master bedroom at night and lounged up in the second story living room watching the water during the day. Though the weather was chilly I was snug in this lovely little cottage. I ate in most nights (plenty of dishes, pans, nice stove, etc.) and drove to Cape May itself (about 10 minutes away) once or twice. The owner sent lots of helpful restaurant info to me early on, and her pizza recommendation was really good.

I spent every morning birding at Cape May Point. I was happy to have a dryer as my jeans, gloves, hat, etc. went in at night. The rent is very reasonable compared to other properties, and the value was HIGH!

Thank you for everything!

My husband and I rented the Dolphin Watch beach house for a week in Sept 2012 and it was a fun and relaxing vacation! We had so much fun especially because we could bring our lab Bella. She loved the beach and the water so much, we think she didn't really want to come back home. Our dog was very comfortable in the house, as well. As soon as we pulled in to Dolphin Watch we couldn't believe how it was steps away from the beach, basically in the front yard. We went to the beach everyday (even though it is the bay you cannot tell...it looks and feels just like the beach!) The large wrap around deck was amazing to relax on and eat our lunches and dinners and to watch the sunsets! The deck was also great because it was completly enclosed for our dog so we didn't have to worry about her getting out. The accomodations in the house were great: air conditioning, full kitchen, comfortable beds, huge TV, nice bathrooms, stereo system to listen to while out on the deck, nice outdoor shower, CLEAN & ORGANIZED! It was great because we walked just a few blocks away to eat at Harpoon Henry's (beachfront) for lunch and dinner when we didn't feel like driving or getting ready. We drove minutes away to other restaurants in the area, downtown Cape May, Stone Harbor, Avalon, and Wildwood. The few ppl that we ran into on the beach were so friendly and had other dogs that Bella could play with in the ocean. The owner of Dolphin Watch was so genuinely friendly about our stay and making sure everything was in the house that we needed and offering tons of info about where to eat, gas stations, grocery stores, shopping, things to do, etc... This was our first time renting a beach house and we had an overall wonderful experience with the owner, home, and location.....easy to get in touch with and the whole renting process was so easy. We defintely look forward to staying at Dolphin Watch again hopefully sooner than later! Thank you Natalie for providing your beach house to us and for allowing us to bring our dog, which was most important to us. -M & J, Reading PA

We so enjoyed our vacation at the Dolphin Watch.
Beautiful sunsets on the bay and it was great to be able to take our dog walking on the beach. The house was very clean and decorated so nice. The large deck and its view were fantastic! This was our first time every renting a house and the owners were so nice and professional making it a great experience. We highly recomment this house as a great place to stay. We walked a lot of beach, watched dolphins from the deck, visited the many antique shops, and ate at a lot of nice places.

Our stay at Dolphin Watch surpassed our expectations! From the moment we drove up to the property and saw the beautiful sunset until we stepped foot into the house and saw the magnificent deck overlooking the bay, we were enchanted. The house was emaculate and provided us with all the comforts of home. Our two little dogs acclimated immediately and had a blast with their first experience on the dog friendly beach. We can honestly say, nothing was lacking and thoroughly enjoyed cooking or grilling at home and sitting out to watch the sunsets and dolphins with a good glass of wine. We enjoyed bike riding and taking long walks with our dogs. One evening we took advantage of the location of the house and walked over to Harpoon Henry's for good food, drinks and friendly conversation with their staff and customers. We will definitely make this an annual trip. Thanks to Natalie for her gracious attention to all our needs! Nancy & Joe, Reading, PA
