Cape May apartment description

Only one block to the beach and yet right in the center of the historic district, the Abigail Adams is located in the historic James Leaming House, one of Cape May's most whimsical Victorian gingerbread houses.

The Garden Apartment is located on the first floor overlooking the back garden. It has a private entrance and is furnished in bright and breezy colors with an updated kitchen and bath. It is air conditioned and has cable TV and DVD and wireless internet access.

The bedroom has a comfy queen size bed and the room is decorated in shades of blue and pale yellow. The bathroom is conveniently located just off the bedroom and it has a toilet, sink and enclosed shower.

The living room has original pine flooring and is also decorated in blue and yellow but with a few touches of red. It has a full size sofabed as well as several chairs, tables and the TV/DVD player.

The brightly covered kitchen table is located at the end of that room and seats 4. It opens out to the glass doored and open shelved gallery kitchen that is fully equipped with refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot and toaster. It also has plenty of pots and pans, cutlery, dishes and glassware. The kitchen window overlooks the back garden.

Walking out the door and through the wooden gate to the right is the shaded lawn and flower garden. Depending on the season, the blue, pink and white hydrangeas offer a wonderful backdrop to a relaxing morning coffee or a cold drink in the afternoon. There is also a gas grill and a picnic table and chairs for dining outside.

We provide free beach tags for our guests as well as free permit parking available at our offsite lot.

A short walk down Decatur Street will take you to the nicest beaches in town. After a full day at the beach you can enjoy a wonderful meal at one of our many fine Cape May restaurants or throw some steaks on the BBQ and chill out in the comfort of your own garden hideaway.

Park your car in our convenient lot on Bank Street and then everything is within easy walking distance. Bring your bicycles or rent one and take a ride out to our famous bird observatory at the Point or have lunch at Sunset Beach and watch the dolphins play in the surf.

You just couldn't pick a better location than Decatur Street if you want to be close to the beach but also surround yourself with the Victorian ambience of Cape May.

Guests' comments: 'The living room/kitchen and separate bedroom and bath were very neat and clean and beautifully furnished and had everything I wanted for my week's stay. The location can't be beat..just two properties from the village mall and a quick walk to the beach...' Marilyn, NE PA

Give us a call today to reserve your special vacation week or weekend at the beach. See you soon!

                  Gas lit streets, the clip-clop of carriage horses, the scent of Victorian privet hedges and roses spilling out through ornate wrought iron fences--this is Cape May. But Cape May is also family fun at the beach, put-put golf, surrey bikes for the whole crew, gourmet popcorn and every variety of fudge and salt water taffy you can think of. Your summer apartment on Decatur Street is right in the middle of all that Cape May has to offer. An ideal location to explore, have fun and then to chill out.
