Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms/1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This well appointed, cedar-shake ground floor condo is in a choice location, perfect for small families with young children or an adult couple’s getaway. In addition to being close enough to walk barefoot to the beach (just two blocks), it is only a 3 block walk to Cape May's Washington Street pedestrian mall and some of the best restaurants at the New Jersey Shore. Walk 2 blocks west, and you are in the heart of West Cape May with its selection of antique stores, cafes and other quaint shops.

A lovely feature is the outdoor living space. Lean back and enjoy the evening sea breeze on the new wrap-around porch, it is the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach. Sit in the rocker chairs and watch the horse drawn carriages pass by. Also on the front porch is a 4-seat outdoor dining area with ceiling fan/light. There is also a new enclosed side porch with comfortable wicker furniture and lovely greenery -- ideal for reading and relaxing. This enclosed porch is shared with the upstairs condo. The garden is nicely landscaped with a seating area, fully enclosed outdoor shower, and gas BBQ grill.

This condo was completely renovated in 2007 with contemporary, high-end finishes. Inside you will find light oak hardwood floors throughout, large gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counter-tops and six bar stools. New appliances and new central A/C and heating keeps it the perfect temperature.

The condo has high speed wireless Internet access, flat screen high-definition TV with Comcast Xfinity cable, DVD player , CD/Radio.

The master bedroom has a double bed with fan, CD/radio, dresser. The second bedroom has three twin beds and lots of closet space (this bedroom also has a TV and Nintendo GameCube with plenty of games). The light, airy bathroom with white wainscoting and tiled shower, and washer/dryer. The fully equipped kitchen includes all dishes, glasses, flatware, utensils, pots and pans, refrigerator with ice-maker, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster.

Windsor Avenue is a quiet, tree-lined street and not one of the town’s major thoroughfares, so getting to and from the beach and other nearby locations is a breeze. We provide a guaranteed off-street parking space (in a driveway shared with the upstairs unit). Additionally, there is plentiful metered and unmetered parking on Windsor Avenue and nearby.

No smoking and no pets, please. Six seasonal beach tags included.

We rent year-round including weekends (2 night minimum). There is an excellent calendar of events on the Cape May Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts web site.

About Chris Anstey

Before buying our piece of Cape May in 2007, we were long time visitors to Cape May. It is a great place to vacation with our family and is unique among New Jersey resort towns. There is plenty to do and see, but it steers well clear of the loudness and frenetic activity that characterizes some other places at the Shore.

Chris Anstey purchased this condo in 2007

Why Chris Anstey chose Historic District

Cape May, NJ is the nation’s oldest seashore resort and a winner of the 2010 Traveler’s Choice Award. It has some of the nicest beaches around with lovely sand dunes and the shops, restaurants, and bars of Beach Drive. Congress Hall is a top notch destination hotel and a great place for cocktails!

What makes this condo unique

Of course, Atlantic City is only 45 minutes away up the Garden State Parkway!! The IMAX theatre there is cool. Visit 'The Quarter' at Tropicana and The Borgata. Or, head south and take the Cape May-Lewes ferry across to the lovely quaint town of Lewes or hop the bus to Rehobeth Beach. If wine is your thing there are a number of local vineyards with tastings and other events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Home is even better than described, location is great and relaxing on the front porch was one of our favorite things to do. We used the grill several times to cook the fresh seafood we picked up at The Lobster House.

Girls catch up weekend

  • 4 of 5

the location was perfect for a girl weekend. the only down side was we either had to bring our own linens or stay to wash and dry them. Luckily we were driving so we brought our own. The unit was clean and welcoming and Chris was quite helpful.

I love everything about this house!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just perfect and just so beautiful, from the moment we got there we were in love with this house! We were 5 women getting away for a 4 day weekend, and everything was just perfect! The front porch with the rocking chairs is where we spent our nights after the enjoyable days. We walked to everything , only took the car once to go to acme to do the shopping we needed, It was 5 mins away. We enjoyed walking to all the beautiful stites, stores,beach and restaurants Everything was right there. The house was clean and very well stocked with everything you need. We felt comfortable and safe, it really was a home away from home. We are looking forward to going back next year, but it willl be longer than 4 days! Chris (owner) was so accommodating, was always quick to answer all our questions, I was very touch when he reached out at the end of our trip and ask if all went well and hoped we had a great stay. Yes Chris we had a WONDERFUL STAY!!! Thank you again

Such a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this place. Not only was it immaculate and completely upgraded, but also the location could not have been better! It was two short blocks to both the beach and the shops, which made it very easy for having a stroller and toddler. The owner was super attentive and quick to respond with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent time for a girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We went for my cousins 50th birthday, there were 4 of us ladies. The place was super clean and in such a perfect location! We could walk to most anything we needed including the beach. Sitting out on the front porch was our favorite in the morning to watch the horse drawn carriages go by. Quaint and charming! Christopher, the owner was fast to respond and gave great information about local attractions for our stay. We would happily go there again!
