Fun in the sun!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at Soggy Paws! As others have mentioned, the living room furniture is not super comfortable or roomy, but we spent very little time inside so that wasn't a big deal for us. There were plenty of towels and four kayaks that we put to good use every day in the bay. We had just the right amount of room for 4 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs. We did miss having a dock and a screened in porch, but I would recommend this house to friends for sure.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our spring break vacation. It was well equipped with everything we needed...loved the kitchen. The best part about the house was the fenced in yard so that we could let our dog roam outside. However, the greatest part about the entire property was the access to the bay and the kayaks that were provided. Our boys and our dog spent more time out there than they did on the beach, which was a very short walk (or golf cart ride) away. My husband took his road bike down and spent some time cycling in the area as well. The trail down at the park was also a nice little adventure. Emma and Murray were so helpful to us. We were switching mid week to one of their other properties and they allowed us to stay in the house longer to make the switch a piece of cake for us. We would totally rent this house again!

Awesome home & great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Emma & Murray are so easy to deal with & really care about ensuring that you have a wonderful vacation. The home has everything you need to be comfortable & relaxed. The yard is fenced which is great for the dogs, who really loved the bay access. The shallow water was a fun playground. The kayaks at the house made it easy for us to play in the bay too. The beach is only minutes away & it's perfect. There is a state park at the end of the cape. They cove there is a great place to snorkel.

We enjoy it so much that we've already booked for September!

Wonderful bay front cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Soggy Paws with our dog 5/6-5/13/17 and had an amazing time! Each year we rotate between staying on the bay side or the beach side of the Cape and I am always struggling to find a dog-friendly bay side property that has direct access to the bay and comes with kayaks. Soggy Paws fit and exceeded our needs! The cottage is nicely renovated and stocked with everything you need. I especially appreciated the spices in the kitchen, tupperware, bags, soap, etc. so we didn't have to buy all these small items. The property is fully fenced in which gave us comfort in letting our dog roam freely. Although there is no dock, there is a great sandy beach area at the bay/back side of property which I actually preferred to a dock as it was easy access for kayaks and our dog without having to struggle on dock stairs. The use of the golf cart was an added bonus for getting to the beach with our chairs. Overall, a wonderful stay and we will for sure be returning to Soggy Paws!

great pet friendly home in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home for 3weeks in January 2017. Pros .... Private location, fenced yard, home has everything you need, beach is only a few blocks away, nicely decorated home.

Cons...no swimming in January, air temps were 60 to 70 but water was cold, many restaurants were closed for season, need a comfy chair or two.

Tax Rate 12.0%

winter rates are $85 per night for stays of 28 days or more plus applicable fees.

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.
