Property description

Cozy and, quaint, diamond in the rough cottage located in an ole quiet fishing village, you will find it like stepping back in time to the shore as it used to be, with spectacular, romantic sunsets. We may be the most southerly location, but the extra 30 min. drive from other shore points will be worth your wild. It is not crowded, beaches are free, parking plentiful, and you don't have to fight traffic. That in itself is worth it. Enjoy morning coffee on the back patio while being cooled by the breeze off the water. My yard partially in a wild state borders next to a wildlife refuge, very private and tranquil adorned with natures lush shade trees/shrubs as a cooling backdrop against the hot, and sunny beach. I also have a tie out and dog run for your adorable pooch or pooches. Dine IN or OUT with a charcoal grill near the patio also added a firepit for roasting marshmellows or relaxing by the fire with a drink of choice. For your convience there is an outside shower to RINSE-OFF and cool down from a relaxing day at the beach.
10 min walk to a Dollar Store, 15 min drive, only 5 min. away on Bayshore Rd is Fish and fancy, fresh fish just caught by local fishermen, eat in or take out the prices are great, and the food compares to the LOBSTER HOUSE, Shop-Rite, Acme, McDonalds, 5 min. away is Wing It, Mels, Pizza and many others are conveniently located nearby for last minute odds and ends. Almost forgot.just a short block at the end of my street is The Fishermens's Inn on the Bay, or a few miles away make a left at the WaWa (Fillermill Rd) is Menz Restaurant, and Harpoon Henry's 15 min drive on Beach Ave. Consider some fine dinning in Cape May with reasonable early dinners, fancy beverages $2.00 that will wet your appetite and not 'ouch', your pocket. Try The Cape May Inn with FREE appetizers Mon to Fri, from 1pm to 6pm. Tour Historic Cape May area by trolly. If tired of the beach, shop til you drop along Washington Street Mall (20 min) and many antique shops. Later treat yourself to a fresh seafood dinner caught from the Atlantic's largest fishing ports. If your wishing for Italian, that too.
September is great hear with the Irish Festival it is as busy as 4th of July.

Don't forget to visit World War 11 LOOK-OUT TOWER adjacent to the Lighthouse (20)min drive. Search for Cape May diamonds at Sunset Beach, fun for the kids and adults alike.

NEW FEATURE: MUST RESERVE at time of booking: KAYAKING additional $150/wk or $100/wkends for tons of FUN. Enjoy gentle waves, beach combing, jet sking, surfing, fishing (at high tide, local fishermen say the striper fishing is very good), sailing, whale/dolphin watching or biking along beach-views.

We are approx 100 steps to your very own quasi private beach, and for the walkers, your pets are always welcome on this beach, just walk along the beach 45 min to Cape May Beach and Lewis Ferry or 20 min drive. Cape May is great to visit anytime of the year with it's collection of Victorian architecture(especially during Christmas Holidays) with the candlelite tours and trolly rides. Yes, I rent year-round with specials. Just 15 min to the Cape May Lite-house,Cape May Zoo, and Wildwood's famous boardwalk/amusement park. Feel lucky, then do Atlantic City only 40 min. away and hit the Jack pot to take home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: This vacation cottage was orginally owned by my dearest beloved Aunt Sue and Uncle Perry. Every year they invited me for vacation. This was always and still is a cozy and peaceful place to call HOME away from home. The town is an old fishing village and the neighborhood is friendly, pet friendly too. I always looked forward to coming back each year just......... couldn't get enough of the breezy sea air and spectacular sunsets. The yard always reminded me of my very own private sanctuary. it backs up to natural wildlife preservation, and offers shade and serenity. I have lots to do though with the yard and little by little I am planting shrubs and plan to plant a berm of armavitese along the back yard this fall.

Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
Fortunately, for me this cozy home I enjoyed as a teenager I now enjoy 35 years later. Only walking distance 100 steps to the beach and surf. Now, I am into my golden years enjoying the peacefulness of listening to the seagulls, the sounds of the water while having my morning coffee. I don't mind a glass of wine in the evening taking in the breeze of the water or a short jaunt to the beach to enjoy the magnificent. sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our home brings back many memories of my family enjoying good times, great meals and beautiful sunsets. If you want peace and quiest, it is here, but if you want more excitement only a 15 min. drive to all the people, amusements, and nightlife.
