Cottage near the bay in N Cape May - finished basement offers extra living space

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


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, wireless internet and digital preferred cable service are some of the amenities that offer guests a home away from home.

A finished basement is a bonus offering an additional 800 sq ft of living space. The nautical themed 'man cave' features a large newly furnished 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.

Wonderful and spacious house with all the amenities for a great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is bigger than it looks from the photos, both inside and out. It is very close to a lovely beach, especially if you have small children who don't want too many waves. We also liked the restaurant Harpoon Henry's also two blocks away. It was a bit of a drive to the main Cape May boardwalk, about 15 minutes. The house itself is well set up and easily had space for two families. Highly recommended!

AWESOME Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just our favorite!! We come every year for its great location, but most of all for the house itself!! We are a family of 5 and it's just perfect! The kids can hang in the finished basement with games, sleeping area and TV, while the adults hang upstairs. The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean! The whole property is beautifully landscaped which you can thoroughly enjoy in the relaxing backyard on the deck or patio. My kids loved watching the birds, the butterflies and the humming birds. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It's so close to the bay and to town. It has everything you'd want in a beach vacation!!

Lovely Cottage near the Bay!! Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this house. It is very clean, well kept. While small in space, it was big in comfort. The kitchen had everything we needed. The back deck and yard are lovely and we saw birds and butterflies galore! We loved being a few blocks from the bay and walking down in the evening to see fabulous sunsets. It's a short drive to Cape May City and we enjoyed the restaurants, shops there, too.

Great vacation with young children

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 2 year old son and I had a great week at the house. It was completely comfortable and well-equipped. My son loved playing out in the back yard every night. The beach is an easy walk from the house and was perfect for toddlers - minimal waves and never crowded. We appreciated having beach chairs and other gear provided at the house. There are so many things to do in the area: we enjoyed the Cape May Zoo, Brewery, City of Cape May downtown and the Lower Township community pool. We would definitely come back!
