Property description

This immaculately clean, upscale, 3 bedroom, bi-level villa is situated in the SW corner Diamond Beach offers privacy and stillness that no one would expect from the New Jersey seashore. Yet it is just a few blocks from a gorgeous, private beach known as 'the Club at Diamond Beach' and minutes from many exciting area dining locales and other interesting attractions. Beach tags are provided.

From the moment you walk into this impressive town home, your stress will melt away!
Take in the spectacular bayfront views of the bay and wetlands. The covered deck allows you to enjoy the outside all day and night long. Sunsets and bird-watching are spellbinding, so have your camera ready! If you are into bird watching, you see many varieties right from the condo's deck and by car, you're within 10 minutes of the best bird watching in the world.

Both floors have large sliders and windows to show off the beautiful scenery. Two stairways allow easy access to both floors.

This townhome is THE BEST unit located at Harbor Vista. Since it is an end unit and located adjacent to the pool, it offers the maximum in privacy (no direct views of neighbors) and you can walk out the first level door and be right at the pool's gate. The townhouse is 1600sq. ft space with many upgrades. These include granite countertops, marble flooring in the bathrooms and well maintained carpeting. The interior colors are comforting and warm, as they too aid in eliminating your stress.

The master bedroom features a King size Tempurpedic mattress, one of the most comfortable sleep innovations of the modern era!

Overall the location can be described like this - you are close enough to many conveniences, but yet far enough away that you experience unparalleled peaceful and quiet hours away from traffic and the frenzy of people running to and fro.

The pool can be seen just below the master bedroom's window and looks great lit up at night. Not to worry, the pool is closed from 800 pm until 1000 am,so you won't be awaken too early by people using the pool area.

Parking can be a problem in many places but not here. You have two spaces allocated in the garage to keep your car out of the blazing summer sun. There are also many spaces available in the street if you have guests.

Area Features:
* 3 blocks to world class beach: The clean beach includes palm trees planted for atmosphere and shade, live music on weekend afternoons/evenings, and plenty of refreshments: wet bar, hot/cold food cart. It also has large, comfortable restrooms and you can even rent cabanas for your family and relax in style while at the beach.
* A challenging, 18 hole, miniature golf course is located 150 feet away.
* A Bayside Dock Bar - Harbor View, on the bay featuring reggae and other music daily. Only 1 mile out onto causeway.
* US Coast Guard Reserve and National Wildlife Preserve is 1 block away. For hiking and bird watching, this place is great!
* 'No outlet' street creates zero noise and congestion.
* 3.5 miles to historic Cape May and its treasure trove of bars, stores, antique shops and more.
* Hometown great, Crest Tavern, 3 blocks away. Features decent food at reasonable prices.
* Downtown Wildwood 3 miles north. For the real flavor of a summer resort, you have to visit this a least one night. It is a great place to rent bikes and go for a ride during the day.
* 6 golf courses within a 10 mile radius and double that number if you extend the radius to 30 miles.
* Two parking spaces in the garage.

Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover Credit Cards are accepted however, a 3.0 percent convenience charge will be added to rental price.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

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.
