Cape May cottage description

Let the fun begin here! Come relax, enjoy, dine in, dine out, steps to the beach, steps to all the pleasures of Cape May and the gas lit streets. This cozy and bright cottage will be your home away from home with all the comforts you need. Located 400' feet to the beach and a few short blocks to shopping, restaurants, Victorian Cape May and the Washington Street Mall. This cottage sleeps 6-8 in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home with a 33' covered front porch, a 17' covered rear porch, a large rear yard with a BBQ grill, outside shower, clothes line and bike shed. Bikes are provided, just bring your helmets. Come see the fun you are missing.

This cozy home was redone in 2009 with new furniture, appliances, beds, bedding, carpet, paint, awnings and BBQ grill. This home is so close to the ocean, there are times you can hear the ocean roar while relaxing on the front porch, rear porch or yard. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise from the front porch or stroll 400' to the promenade and watch the sunrise or sunset over the ocean. Both are magnificent. There is also an outside shower and a hose for rinsing off after a relaxing day on the beach.

Cape May is a unique and wonderful seaside resort town with a spectacular beach, fabulous fishing and many outstanding restaurants. Cape May is also known for its historical and colorful Victorian homes and its antique shops. Cape May offers narrated horse drawn carriage rides and open air trolley tours. Seasonal events include Jazz Festivals, Craft Shows, Vineyard Tours, Home Tours, Strawberry Festival, Peach Festival, Lima Bean Festival, Wine Festival, Film Festival, Victorian Fair, Art Shows, Antique Car Shows, Independence Day Parade, Halloween Parade, Christmas Parade and even a Pet Parade.

No other shore community meets the needs or wants of visitors than Cape May does because Cape May is conveniently located 10 minutes to Wildwood, 15 minutes to Stone Harbor, 20 minutes to Avalon, 25 minutes to Sea Isle City, 35 minutes to Ocean City and 45 minutes to Atlantic City. All are great seaside towns with more activities than you could ever conquer.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Here I am with Deb. Our goal is to make your stay exceptional. Also pictured is one of our boys, Smokey, a poodle/daschund mix. Nigel, our white toy poodle isn't pictured but he is always with us too. All four of us love walking around Cape May. You may see us on your visit to our fantastic home. We love the beach and the ocean and especially enjoy walking the gas lit streets in the evening. My daughters also have fond memories of the beach, zoo and time spent together in Cape May and in all the nearby seaside communities including Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Sea Isle City, Ocean City and the many towns in between. Our boys want us to make our retreat available to other well behaved boys and girls, both of their world and of ours so come, stay, relax and enjoy our home. As an FYI, Silver, our 15 year old minature poodle, passed away during the spring of 2010 and he is greatly missed. Those that knew him remember his kind spirit. He was a great treasure and he will always be remembered fondly. We rescued Smokey in March 2011 as a playmate for Nigel. At the time, Smokey was a 7 month old poodle mix and he has quickly learned where the ice cream and hot dog snacks can be found in Cape May. He and Nigel love running and playing on the beach as did Silver. We suspect your pet will too. Come stay and you will see and may God bless and enrich everyone that visits our home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
                      Our home was purchased to be close to the places we love. We hope you will enjoy our home and its wonderful location ideal for creating fun and fond memories.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We provide you and your family a wonderful cottage to relax and enjoy Cape May. The front porch furniture is ideal for a good nap or a place to enjoy the strolling Cape May visitors. More privacy is enjoyed on our covered rear porch area. Enjoy our newer vintage beach cruiser bikes for a great ride to Sunset Beach or a casual cruise around town. Head to our wonderful beach with beach chairs that we provide along with an umbrella and beach blankets. This cozy cottage is a wonderful retreat and includes central air/heat, new furniture and appliances, a washer/dryer and dishwasher with laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets provided. We also provide a starter roll of paper towels and toilet paper and a 5 burner propane grill with sear, side burner and spare propane tank so you won't run out of fuel. A rare find is our off street parking and our spacious yard.
