ReviewsWrite a review
This was our first experience renting a beach house and I would highly recommend it or any property from Mary. She was fantastic to work with and offered much needed recommendations about the area. The house was charming with excellent appliances and furnished much better than I expected. The house is huge and accommodated 18 without feeling a bit crowded. The parking for at least 5 cars was a huge plus and walking distance to the beach and shopping (5 minutes!) The front porch was a big hit with comfortable rocking chairs which was sought out at every opportunity. The first floor bedroom was great for my 76 yr. old mother. I would highly recommend the house and Mary!

I rented the Cape May house @ 25 Ocean from you Oct 7th-9th. I'm interested in once again renting it. This time for April 12, 13 & 14th. (though I'm almost sure I'll be asking for it again on Oct 5th, 6th 7th)

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband, Tedd, and I own 8 vacation rental properties (6 in Cape May and 2 in Wildwood), and we live year round in Cape May. We moved here on a full time basis after vacationing here all of our lives. I manage and rent all of our properties myself, and I make myself available to my guests at all times. I am diligent about proper maintenance of our properties and I strive to pleasantly surprise guests with improvements each year, and better-than-expected quality. Since I live in the area, I know it well and am happy to offer my guests lots of help with activity planning and special services.
Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
We began buying vacation rental property here 22 years ago when our children were young. Our first house was a 2-family property, allowing us to stay in one unit while we rented the other. We love everything about this area and enjoy sharing it with our guests. Whether you come with a group of friends, family, or you visit to attend one of the many events throughout the year, we strive to offer you a wonderful experience in one of our properties. Cape May offers year-round activities that entice visitors to the area. It appeals to a broad variety of guests, at every stage of life, offering romantic getaways for couples, destination weddings, and family vacations for multi-generational groups.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is located in the heart of everything! The beaches, boardwalk, historic sites, great restaurants, night spots, antique shops, house and garden tour sites, gift shops, and even surfing schools...it has it all! Because we know the area so well, we are happy to help our guests with many arrangements and plans, and can recommend local service providers with confidence. We offer many services with our properties that go 'above and beyond' the normal vacation rental experience. This includes many free services, like internet and expanded cable and concierge services, as well as many services at low cost, including in-house catering, linens, daily maid service, gift baskets, house decorating, flower delivery, even 'house warming' (prepared snacks, beverages, and flowers await your arrival).
