Cape May Point condo description

This spacious condo is just 1/2 block from the beach - you don't even have to cross the street; you only have to cross the dune. The protected beach, at the southern-most tip of New Jersey, has calm waters that are safe for swimming and perfect for families. Cape May Point is an exclusively residential community with very little traffic that is ideal for walking and biking.

Your whole family will be comfortable in this immaculately clean, 1250 sq. ft. ground-floor condominium. A large, fully-equipped, modern kitchen and spacious dining room with table that seats eight, will make staying at home for dinner, even on vacation, attractive. As an alternate, barbeque outside on the patio and dine at the picnic table, next to the beautiful gardens and large lawn.

Large windows line three sides, providing views of the endless variety of migratory birds by day, and allowing cross-breezes and the sound of breaking ocean waves by night.

Welcome to Parsons' Folly #6 - family owned and managed for over 20 years.

Keywords: ground floor, fully stocked kitchen & large dining room, sleeps six, off-street parking

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: The building that is now called Parsons' Folly was erected in the late 1880's and served as the dining hall for the Sea Grove Camp Meeting Association of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. It changed hands several times until Elisabeth Parsons, a professional landscape designer and passionate gardener, bought the then run-down building in 1986. She painstakingly renovated the building and gardens and sold each apartment to the families who still own them today. Elisabeth owned and lived in apartment #6 until her untimely death in 1996. During her last years, her apartment was a haven for her family. Tina and Phil Ragozzino, Elisabeth's daughter and son-in-law, now own apartment #6, and we work hard to provide the same comfortable atmosphere that Elisabeth created. We hope that you, too, will join the extended family of Parsons' Folly #6 vacationers.

Why the Owner Chose Cape May Point:
Because summer visits to the Jersey shore has been part of our family tradition for more than sixty years. 'The Point' still contains all the best qualities that made those long-ago vacations so memorable. This place is cooler than 'exit zero', it's five below zero.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You get a very attentive landlord and an excellent set of cleaners and maintenance people, whose highest priority is providing you with a pleasant stay at a moderate price. We consider ourselves blessed because 'Sandy', the storm which caused horrible damage to so much of the east coast, caused no damage at all to Parsons Folly.
