My friends and I who are all turning 60 this year decided to go to a bed and breakfast in Cape May for the weekend. We stayed at Buttonwood Manor, Akwaaba by the sea (Akwaaba I learned means welcome). Frances met us when we drove up. We stayed in the Carriage house. It was four of us. Two stayed downstairs...

I took my husband to Akwaaba for a milestone birthday, all I can say is it was such a pleasure. We stayed in Lizzie’s Loft which was a really nice space and it gave us the privacy that I was looking for, yes the bathroom is small, so keep that in mind but we managed it well with no problems....

My stay at Akwaaba was fantastic! The service was great and the breakfast was amazing. We went up for my birthday weekend and I'm happy to say that the rest and relaxation that I was searching for was found at Awkaaba by the Sea. There are only 5 rooms, so it was not crowded at all. We were served a...

Stayed in the Carriage House suite in the Memorial day weekend, Borken door lock greets you when you walk up the stairs to the Carriage House suite. The safety chain and one of the locks is broken . The bathroom is very small and hot water does not come from the basin tap . The room is basically an attic...

Frances was simply wonderful. We made a mistake with our reservations and were not expected. The Inn wasn't even open! With one phone call Frances fixed everything! We loved visiting with her and appreciated her thoughtfulness. The afternoon tea was a nice surprise, and breakfast was great. Yes, the shower was small, but did not impact our stay. The Inn...

Cape May is my birth place, where my wedding was held and our weekend baby moon had to of course be there. We stayed in the lovely Akwaaba. It was a quiet weekend before the summer season, but the owner Monique called me directly to make sure we had a perfect time and knew how to get around. Making reservations...

What an absolutely amazing B&B experience! I brought my mom down to celebrate her 78th birthday and wow, was she treated like the Queen she is!! Our Inn keeper, Penny was the absolute best. From our early arrival, in which she and her staff accommodated us, to our last hugs and goodbyes, our visit and experience was nothing short of...

My husband and I spent our anniversary here and really liked the b&b. The innkeeper Francis was very pleasant and the breakfast each morning was yummy. The room looked exactly as it was shown on their website. I think the bathroom shower stall was a bit small, and thats the reason I didnt give it stars. Akwaaba (Buttonwood Manor) is...

This location was spot on! Close to the excitement but a nice escape off the shoreline events. Fit our style of vintage Victoria B&B. The breakfast. Amazing! Everyday was something different and fulfilling. It was a nice welcome back to the B&B style accommodations. It's been years for me. The location offered parking which can be a challenge during holiday...
