About the property

Ranch style home, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6

This well maintained vacation home is furnished in a charming seaside décor and is located only 2 1/2 blocks from the bay beach & Harpoon's on the Bay Restaurant. A living room with 48" tv and queen size sleeper sofa, master bedroom with king size bed and 32" tv, well-equipped modern kitchen, sunny dining room, wi-fi and digital preferred cable service are some of the amenities that offer guests an enjoyable vacation experience.

A finished basement is a bonus offering an additional 800 sq ft of living space. The nautical themed 'man cave' features a family room, poker/game table and laundry area. The fenced-in backyard is beautifully landscaped for privacy and has a furnished patio area, deck for outdoor dining, enclosed shower and gas grill. A shed is available for securing beach chairs, bikes, and more.

The residential community of North Cape May draws less crowds than many of the popular shore towns. Parking is plentiful and non-metered. The sandy beaches and gentle waves of the bay are especially nice for families with small children. The neighborhood atmosphere is perfect for bike riding, jogging, surf fishing or simply enjoying the magnificent sunsets.

We are located only a 1/2 mile from the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, a 10 minute drive to Cape May and a 15 minute drive to the Wildwoods. Cape May has fabulous restaurants and historic sightseeing. The Wildwoods have huge beaches and a 2 mile boardwalk with food, games, amusements, water parks and a tram-car.

Perfect summer rental

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable week. This home was very clean and the decor gave you a relaxed beach feel in every room.

North Cape May is very quiet. People and traffic were almost non-existent. The bay beach is just a short two and a half block walk. We went there in the mornings and would walk close to 3 miles along the beach and would only see about a handful of others. Late morning and into the afternoon there are more people on the beach, but again you really don't feel crowded. Another advantage of the location is being able to walk down to the beach in the evening and watch the sunsets.

All in all we had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay, and have no hesitancy in renting this home again or recommending it to friends, family, or anyone.

Truly a Home away from Home really close to a beautiful And quite shore.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely house for a week in August. It was our first time in Cape May and we simply fell in love with the victorian town and the beautiful shore in North Cape May, just 2 blocks from this house. The place was so clean and the decor really welcoming. We enjoyed breakfasts and dinners on the deck and loved to read a book in the nice garden. The kitchen is well equipped with all you should need ( and more!). We will definitely consider this home again if we will visit Cape May in the future.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids, and the house was perfect for our needs. Everything that you will need is provided for, and it was well equipped. It was also kid friendly because there were very few sharp corners/edges! The nearby beach was also kid friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Great little beach house

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly fit our needs as a family with two small children. Close to the bay side beach. Fenced in yard. Well stocked kitchen. Very clean and well taken care of. Close to all the attractions Cape May has to offer, but not on the busy end of town. Also close to the Wildwood boardwalk which was fun for the kids! Very hospitable owner who checks in to make sure you have everything you need. The outdoor shower was so great to get everyone cleaned up after the beach! We are planning on booking again next year!
