Cape May house description

17 Jefferson St.: This beautiful 6 Bedroom and 2.5+ Bathroom, Victorian era home is just 4 houses from Cape May’s finest family beach and a short walk to its best shops and restaurants. When not at the beach, you will be enjoying the home’s large porch with its seven rockers, full hammock, and big views of the ocean. The house sleeps up to 15 and has off-street parking for 4 cars.

We bought the house in Spring 2010 and have invested heavily in renovations and new furniture to make this a superb rental - over $300,000 to date. Virtually every area of the house has been renewed, inside and out. Despite all the changes, we've tried to keep the 1901 look and feel of the house. The improvements include A/C and heating throughout, completely new kitchen (quality appliances) and master bath, new outside shower, all new beds and mattresses (replaced double beds with Kings and Queens), new high-end furniture in the living and dining rooms, new flat screen TV and blu-ray DVD, fresh painting and wallpapering throughout, etc.

We try and make the house as comfortable for our guest as possible. The kitchen is well stocked. There is wifi and a premium cable package. We keep beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys for all to use.

                      Normally goes for $7000 - $7,500 - Will give for $4,500* This was my family's week, but health issues have caused a change in plans. We usually do a mid-season deep clean during this vacation. So, whomever picks up this this week needs to allow an additional mid-week multi-hour deep clean by professional cleaners. Guests and all their belongings can stay in the house. shouldn't be a hassle.

                      About the owner: We bought the house while living in Geneva, Switzerland, so you will notice little Swiss/French things throughout the house. We now live in Blair's hometown of Pittsburgh, so our kids can be near family (it's also a great city).

                      Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
                      Just a great location seconds from the beach and an easy walk into town. Guests love the front porch with its ocean views and breezes. It's a big one! Lots of free parking too.
