Great dog-friendly home with lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over the Labor Day weekend. Crowds were minimal and the house was exactly as described. Bikes and the golf cart were so much fun!! Lots of little extras for our dog and the fenced yard was very nice. We would love to stay here again!

Had a great time at the Soggy Paws. My family and I only have one complaint, no tvs in bedrooms. I would highly recommend this house for pet owners.

Great pet friendly home and very secure yard. Has everything we wanted and more

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Soggy Paws!! We have a very active Boxer who is also a "runner" so we were very concerned about the security of the fencing. We were able to relax without worrying about him getting out! We enjoyed the beautiful bay front views and beig so close to hear the surf while watching the birds hunt the bay and roost in the pines off the deck. We had a full moon the whole week we were there so the moon over the bay was spectacular!!!

The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. Loved the turtle themed and beachey decor throughout the house. We used one of the bikes to ride to the state park and to the beach... The kayaks were fun but for our liking we need larger kayaks with more stability. If your a small sized adult or child they are perfect. The ride over to the beach was enjoyable and quick in the golf cart!

The master was private away from the other 2 bedrooms which was also nice. Nice kitchen and with plenty of room to entertain a small gathering.

Though the living room furniture was very nice it was not very comfortable. The chairs on the deck were much more comfortable.

The queen/full bedroom matress and box springs needs to be replaced and the twin bed mattresses weren't very comfortable and could use a thick memory foam topper to make them more comfortable.

We would deffintly reccomend Soggy Paws and would love to stay here again next year!!!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, the furniture and beds had been replaced within the last 2 months, king, queen and both singles are brand new. It's difficult to find a balance since guests enjoy different comfort levels, anywhere from soft to hard.

Great Cape Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at the Cape for the last 7-8 years always on the beach side, and this was the first time we stayed on the bay side. We had a great time, and to have so many kayaks, a paddle board, and a golf cart saved us QUITE A BUNDLE of $$! Also, your washer/dryer were the best! The super-sized load capacity was exceptional ~ better than mine at home!! The beds were sooooo comfortable, and we slept like a rock. Everything was clean, and all the little amenities just enhanced our stay even more. We also loved the outside shower with hot and cold water, and the decking/boardwalk to bay done in composite material/boards was very nice. No splinters! -- it was all very well done. We will certainly consider staying here again.

Great house , beautiful views and lasting memories!!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed on the Cape many times and loved where the house was located on the bay. My husband had lots of luck fishing for flounder 😋� The house is decorated beautifully, the AC works GREAT , they have thought of everything. There are four kayaks, a paddle board, 2 bikes , chairs , and lots more there for you to use!!! They have a golf cart also , but it is against the law to ride it on the highway to get you to the beach . We were stopped twice by the police . Luckily no ticket but it is a $100 fine 😬� Hopefully soon they will make it legal 😊�We had a great time met lots of people and gained way to much weight . My only complaint would be the living room furniture could be more comfortable.And only sat 4 people and that is the only tv in the house . That is the only reason it did not get 5 ⭐️!!

Early in 2016, VRBO introduced a service fee which ranges from 4-9% ... this is a VRBO fee and has nothing to do with us and to be honest is simply a money maker for them. Any feedback regarding this fee should be directed to VRBO.
