My family stayed at Geri’s house from August 15th - 20th. Although Geri was very pleasant and it was nice to sit on the dock in the evenings, there were issues. The first thing we noticed was a strange smell in the house; we remedied this by buying deodorizers and putting them throughout the house. The next issue was the additional bedroom with bunk beds. There was no air conditioner in this room and it was separated from the rest of the house by a breezeway. It was a particularly hot that week and that our daughters would be sleeping in a room that wasn’t actually part of the house, we opted to put them in the living room with our son. This would have been okay but Geri neglected to tell us that the pull out bed is broken; instead, she told us to make sure the kids didn’t jump on it because it could break. We didn’t want to be the ones to pay for an already broken couch, so my husband reinforced the bed by adding supports underneath it so that it would not break on our watch. Please be aware that whoever rents the house next is probably going to be charged for a couch/bed that is already broken. In addition to the poor condition of the house, we had to deal with a cricket infestation. We spent a good portion of the week killing crickets. The cricket situation was so bad that after we got home, we had to inspect all of our belongings to be sure we were not bringing crickets into our own home. On the last day we were there, I carefully washed, dried and folded all of the sheets and towels along with wiping everything down. Shortly after we got home, we received an email from Geri thanking us for taking such good care of her home. A few days later, in spite of all of our efforts, Geri notified us that she would not be refunding our entire security deposit; she withheld money because a gold plated filter for the coffee pot was missing; she suggested that we must have thrown it out and that the paper filters (that she provided) were not for the coffee maker. I assured here we did not see the special filter, but she insisted that we must have thrown it out. Although, it was not a lot of money, we feel the need to make sure others are aware of what they are getting into. I cannot recommend this rental for a vacation spot. I expect to relax on my vacation; I do not expect to be fixing things, killing bugs, washing sheets and towels or paying extra for things that I didn’t break/lose.
Hi David, I am sorry that you and your family had issues during your stay, Most of the issues that you had, I thought were addressed beforehand when I checked you in and are mentioned in the welcome book.
I am unsure what smell you are referring to? There is the natural smell that comes with being on the bay. The house was professionally cleaned a few hours before your arrival, as it always is between guests.
As seen in the photos, my house is not large and does not have separate wings. The AC units in the house and the fans are placed to keep the entire house cool, including the bunkbed room. I specially reviewed that all windows needed to be shut, and both AC units run for the bunkbed room to stay cool. In addition, there is the Oscillating Stand Fan, with multiple options to direct air the way that you prefer. I should have suggested that you use this in addition.
Regarding the pull-out sleeper, this is also cleaned, pulled out, and checked between
Guests to ensure there are no issues and there were none before your arrival. I personally, was there,i when the sleeper was opened and vacuumed. I ask that children do not jump on the bed, because it was broken last summer by young adults jumping on it. I had the springs and pieces replaced, at my own expense, for a $1500. Sleeper couch that was only a year old. If there was an issue with the sleeper, you should have called me and let me know as I would have had someone look at it. Your lease agreement states: “Removing, adding or changing furniture without Owner’s written approval shall be deemed a material breach of this Rental Agreement and is strictly prohibited”. After looking at the sofa bed, this weekend we saw no added supports underneath and it was fine for an adult to sleep on, so what are you saying that you repaired? You stated that the house was in poor condition - my house is old but almost all the appliances, TV, furniture, screen doors and fixtures, were bought within the last two years NEW. A house that sits by water is in constant repair due to the salt air . I contacted the guests that stayed, in the house after you and there was no cricket problem in the house, so I am also confused by the infestation that you are referring to. We saw a few crickets outside, in early Aug due to the high grass next door (now cut). I stayed for 5 days before your arrival and had no issues. My home was exterminated in early Aug. Again, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay.
Great place buietiful views clean owner very nice and informative will stay again
Joan and her family were wonderful. They were a pleasure to have stay in my home.

It would be a pleasure to have them come back and stay again.
June 29 to July 5
Geri was great. The house was clean and homey. Great location...short drive to numerous places and activities. Enjoyed sunsets on the dock and catching crabs.
It was such a pleasure meeting you, your husband and son.
When we spoke your last day, you stated that you had a fabulous time
and did so many things. I was so happy to hear that you and your family
were so well organized, to enjoy, so many of the attractions available, near
my home. Your older son really did miss out, especially with all the crabs
you caught, off the dock.
Thank you for leaving my home, as you found it.
My daughter was having her dance competition in Cape May Court House, and the owner Geri, was a pleasure. The house was very clean when we got there, and she explained everything directly to us.
The only thing my husband didn’t like was the hi/low tide on the bay. When it was low, there was no water at all. But other than that, location was good and house was great.
What a wonderful family. They are very friendly and easy going people and perfect guests!
Also, they left the place spotlessly clean. They burnt a bowel while making popcorn and
went out and bought a new one. Wish the township would dredge the back bays. Having deep water again all the time would be wonderful. Hope to have them stay again and strongly recommend.
Great Wedding Weekend with Friends
Geri's house was perfect for my friends and I for our long weekend for a wedding at the Reeds. The house was quaint, clean, and decorated as a great beach cottage. It was a quick drive into downtown Stone Harbor, but also so nice to relax on the pier at high tide. She also had a starting supply of all of the basic amenities which was very thoughtful, as you cant find that down the shore very often these days. Geri was quick to respond, polite, and professional. I would recommend anyone to stay at her home, and I would definitely stay again in the future.
Thank you for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure having your group stay in my home. I hope you and your group come back as you were the perfect guests.
Great location! Quick replies from owner- very friendly! House and contents were very accommodating!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and taking such good care of my home.
You are always welcome to come back.
