Extra Toiletries for "just in case"
We take immense pride in our Cottage, soft surfaces are steam cleaned between each guest, mattresses are encased in allergy and pest proof coverings. We are sticklers for cleanliness, and keep the Cottage as immaculate as possible, as we know our guests appreciate our diligence. As such, we are strictly NON SMOKING.
Every year during the off season we search for ways to improve and replenish before anything gets "tired" looking.
We provide you with a Welcome basket containing goodies for your arrival.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and hope to see you soon!
We do require a signed rental agreement.
*** If bringing a PRE-APPROVED pet, IT MUST BE CRATED (we need a photo) when left alone, a pet fee ($150 per week) and pet agreement. Ask about our extensive pet policy, we love dogs, but realize many owners view their pets through rose-colored lenses and have had to impose these guidelines to protect our Cottage and our neighbors peace of mind.

The NeighborhoodWe love our family oriented town, friendly neighbors, Phillip, the owner of Caruso's pizza at the end of our block, our fabulous library and of course the sound of the ocean waves and strolling on the boardwalk day or night (it is lit at night) For a treat, walk a few short blocks to and Sapore for a wonderful BYOB Italian meal.

On street parking, which only gets busy on the weekends during the height of the season. Otherwise you can find a spot easily right in front of the Cottage. Other Things to NotePlease read House Rules here (which we ALSO send to you to be signed after booking) THOROUGHLY before sending your deposit, in order to ensure that we are a good fit for your needs. Also, a MONTH rental fee is charged anytime after 3 weeks. The MONTHLY rental fee is ALREADY highly discounted, Airbnb does not make this distinction, so we must manually change the rate when you inquire. We take great pride in our Cottage, and know that you will appreciate our attention to detail and agree to inhabit the space accordingly. You MUST supply verification of your ID, by signing and complying with our Rental Agreement to confirm your reservation completely. During the off season (Oct through April), the City of Ventnor imposes a $50 Occupancy fee, which must be added to the rates. Off Season Monthly stays are also charged a utility fee.
