"I've been vacationing in Cape May for 20 years and this August, my fiancé and I enjoyed our stay in this beach more than I can express in this review! We spent two glorious weeks in this beautiful beach house, corner lot with spacious interior, plenty of parking spaces and a wonderful deck offering spectacular views of the Delaware Bay! The sunsets rival the "greatest show in the Keys"! David and Janine provide everything the vacationer could want and more. Whether you want to spend a day on the Bay beach or CM City beach, riding bicycles or simply sitting on the deck or porch, they provide every amenity you can imagine to make your day a special one. From the house, the path over the dune to the beach is quintessential Cape May. We walked the beach every morning and most mornings we saw dolphins not far from us swimming north in the bay! Every day we marveled at the sandbar that appears with low tide. It allowed us to walk further out into the bay and search for Cape May Diamonds! We enjoyed breakfasts on the deck and would drive into CM City (during the hottest part of the days) to lunch at many of our favorite haunts (Zoe's, the Mad Batter, the Pier House, Hot Dog Tommy's, and the Lobster House-of course-just to name a few!) For years, we've been seeing the banners advertising Harpoon Henry's and this year, we found it! Although, we didn't need to dine there to watch the sunset (since we had a perfect view from the deck of the beach house), we did eat dinner there twice and enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the close proximity to the house (less than one mile!) We enjoyed grilling the best fresh cut filets from the West Side Market! We enjoyed the best fresh seafood (shrimp and day boat scallops) from Fresh Catch, a new fish market on Bayshore. Their prices were in line with the quality of their offerings. We enjoyed visiting the local farm markets almost every day to pick up something for dinner or breakfast the next day! Everything we ate was fresh and delicious. We've been to the CM Vineyards & Winery many times, so, we visited the Hawk Haven Vineyards & Winery-they offer live music on Sundays! The beach house is so conveniently located close to the Bay beach, to the Ferry, to grocery stores, to fresh farm markets, to the airport, to the harbor, to CM City beaches, shopping & events, to CM Lighthouse, to Migratory Bird Sanctuary, to Sunset Beach, to EVERYTHING! Yet, you don't even have to leave the house to have a wonderful time!"
