The Akwaaba by the Sea was built in the 1850's and offers beautiful, romantic and cozy rooms and apts/suites. Much of the natural beauty remains intact and we have renovated and decorated in an appealing Victorian style. Located directly across the street from Akwaaba by the Sea, every room is spacious and full of light. There are five guest rooms in the main house and two guest suites in the carriage house. A sunny, glassed-in porch is the perfect gathering place year-round, not to mention the elegant parlor with a wood-burning fireplace or the conference center/game room with an oversized, flat-screen TV, guest computer station and handsome table sets for playing cards and board games. Our Cape May guests enjoy both inns during their stay, and between the two houses, we can sleep up to 34 guests. So in addition to romantic get-aways and solo sojourns, think of us for your business retreats, family reunions, church and social outings, or any private affair, whether you’re celebrating a marriage, anniversary, birthday or retirement--or life itself!

Upon entering noticed the rugs were dirty going up the stairs to our bedroom. We stayed in the Maximillion. As in the picture, there were not pretty lace curtains hanging from the ceiling above the bed, the window curtains were way too long and did not match the room. Not like in the picture. No robes at all for lounging. The wine glasses were dusty and dirt underneath. The toilet paper holder is about 2 inches from the floor, thereby making it always dirty. For some reason, the rug around the bed was sticky. The lamps were not like in the picture either. They were modern brass like lamps. Outside was messy and not a nice place to sit outside. We were very unhappy and would never frequent again. The score didn't allow us to put n/a but we did not dine on the premises.

Comfortably Stylish

The Innkeepers prepared healthy and delicious meals. They provided a list of good restaurants and other destinations. The living room, parlor and dining room were very comfortable with stylish decor. Our room was cozy and sunny. The other guests were friendly, and we had informative and enjoyable conversations with the Innkeepers (Glenn, Sabrina & Lillia).

A wonderful place to stay

We had a wonderful stay. The staff is very friendly and went out of their way to meet our needs. They were able to accommodate special dietary needs for breakfast and were able to give us suggestions for restaurants for lunch and dinner. The room was charming. They also serve refreshments at tea time in the afternoon. Breakfast and tea provided a nice opportunity to meet other guests

Fantastic B&B!!

We just spent a long weekend here and our stay was absolutely fantastic! Both Akwaaba by the Sea and Buttonwood Manor are beautiful and wonderfully kept. The people are great! The food is fabulous! and the location is wonderful. We never had a hard time finding parking and the beach was only 4 blocks away. Nice and quiet setting with several great restaurants within blocks of our doorstep. We're already talking about when our next stay will be!
