About Peter Holdsworth

We are a married couple that live in the city and always look forward to our Jersey Shore getaways. Our favorite thing about going to shore is making family memories. We are strong believers that there is nothing more important than the wonderful times spent with our family members. We love to share our home with family and friends. We cherish all the memories that are made at this beach house each summer, and we hope that you and your family get to do the same.

Peter Holdsworth purchased this house in 2002

Why Peter Holdsworth chose Villas

The house sits right on the beach of the Delaware Bay. Approximately 1.5 miles from where the alantic ocean meets the bay. Endless sunsets you will never find anywhere else. We built this house knowing its less than a 10 min drive for all the major attractions in the area. Watching dolphins swimming by on what was like our own private beach was a major perk to this home's location. This beach house is away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds, allowing all guests to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the salt water and waves breaking. We knew this was the right location for our family getaways!

What makes this house unique

Being so close to all the areas has to offer. Without being in a tourist congested trap. Having our deck only a few feet from the beach.

Don't like to get your feet sandy? You still can feel like your right on the beach while soaking up the sun on the deck. This option is truly unique to the area. Plus, the daily breathetaking sunsets! It was a no brainer to make this our beach house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a family gathering with my four brothers, sister and spouses the first week in September. It was a beautiful time of the year in Cape May and wonderful home to spend time together. We enjoyed the spacious deck for lounging and watching spectacular sunsets. The house is spacious and very comfortable for dining in. It had all the ammenties we could have asked for. Thanks for a great week

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and terrific location. The sunsets were as advertised (great) but the great star gazing, was totally unexpected. So many stars, we were able to make out the milky way on clear nights. I would highly recommend this well equipped home. We had as many as four couples and a grandchild. Plenty of room to spread out. The owner is very responsive.

Beautiful house on the bay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this waterfront home was enjoyable in every way, it is everything you could possibly want for a large family gathering. The house was perfectly clean, spacious, well-appointed, and the beds were very comfortable. Three master suites each have a private bath, and the other three bedrooms share a hall bath. Peter was very responsive when we had questions. The beautiful deck was within yards of the bay, gorgeous sunsets, and yes we even saw dolphins! Renting a waterfront home is a bit of an indulgence, but this one is worth the price. My only advice to renters would be to carpool if you can because parking is a bit tight. Thanks to the Holdsworths for sharing this great place with us.

Serene ocean overlook!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home for our family (grandparents, children and grandchildren) to use. The kitchen was very well equipped with pots and pans and utensils that my son-in-law used for many wonderful meals. The owners were very welcoming and accessible to inquiries about the property. The bottle of wine and note on the table was a nice touch. The large number of bed rooms allowed our party of seven to accommodate waking babies and snoring papas. It felt like a home away from home. We will definitely return and/or recommend to our friends.

Worth the Wait!

  • 5 of 5

We planned this family gathering for June of 2016. We had to wait until June of 2017, because our daughter traveling from Calif welcomed twins in June of 2016! So June 2017, nine adults and six grandchildren gathered in this magnificant home--amazing we all made it coming from Calif, CT, NJ and Nashville, and we had a fabulous week of family togetherness. As we were gathering the first day and selecting our bedrooms, our 9 year old granddaughter exclaimed, ”I need a GPS to find my way to the kitchen from our bedroom!” That pretty well summed up the feeling of the spaciousness of this beautiful home. The family with the year-old twins were in the master suite, because the closet was like another bedroom w/o windows--perfect for the two small cribs, and the babies slept very well. The location on the bay was perfect for the 11, 9 and 8 year olds to roam safely during the evening--there is a set of stairs going down near the large beautiful deck--we could see them walking along looking for shells, and they loved it! The house is located close enough to Cape May Point for our adult children to drive to the beach with their families and enjoy the ocean daily. The deck was perfect for dinner every night with a large round table for the nine of us--our sons did all the cooking, and they found a nearby wonderful fresh fish market, a grocery, and a wine/liquor store. Our favorite part (besides being with family) was enjoying the beautiful views each night of the sunset--we were lucky to have NO rain! The house is warm, yet modern and up-to-date, with everything you could want in the kitchen! Peter and Patti were very welcoming and answered a question I had during the week immediately--we felt more like family visiting than paying ”hotel” guests--this is the best way to have family vacations--no more hotels for us!

Tranquil Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Thrilled with our stay! The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. We especially enjoyed morning walks on the beach, sunbathing and star gazing on the huge deck, and spectacular sunset views! Cape May and Wildwood were a short drive away but we were happy to retreat to this tranquil setting! Looking forward to our returning again and again! Thank you!
