About the owner: Hello Everyone, I am Mike Hemphill, the owner of Unit 101 at Harbor Vista. Thanks for taking the time to review the vacation information about my townhome. As someone who likes to travel, I understand very well what it's like to stay in a place that is clean, free of critters, spacious and comfortable. That is why I have done my best in feathering this nest so that it offers the very best in creature comforts for my guest's vacations. I look forward to the opportunity of serving you. Good luck and I hope you come stay at Harbor Vista this year!
Why the Owner Chose Diamond Beach: I bought this vacation rental in Diamond Beach due to its proximity to so many attractions. Historic Cape May is 5 minutes to the south but without the hustle and bustle of say, Ocean City. However, where my townhouse is located it has much more room to spread out not to mention parking.
I instantly knew I wanted to purchase this condo because its incredible location - no through streets, no city noise and so close to a well managed, private beach with a Tiki bar.
I also was sold on the fact that this area in comparison to others, had so much to offer in terms of dining and other manmade and mothernature made attractions.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The scenery and the quiet are the best benefits of all. For Bird Watchers, the view from the covered rear deck are extraordinary. Many species can be seen in this nearly 270 degree panoramic view! Inside, since the walls and ceiling are of concrete, you cannot hear anything unless the windows are open. And then you hear nothing but the wind, the birds and the ocean in the distance. When I can, I like invite family and friends over because Diamond Beach is a great place relax and enjoy with them.
