Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

WANT TO GET AWAY? Reeds Beach allows you the peace and quiet not found at any of the jersey shore resorts. Just off rt 47 approx. 18 mi. north of Cape May, this waterfront village is situated on a single lane with the beautiful Delaware Bay on one side, and world famous bird watching wetlands on the other. There are no beach tags here and your favorite pooch can frolic in the bay without leash or hassle.

We have finally completed the total rennovation of our beautiful waterfront home inside and out. Everything (including appliances) is brand new. Enjoy panoramic views of the bay not only from your living/dining areas but also from your pillow on the king size bed in the upstairs master bedroom. Early risers will be treated to a beautiful sunrise from their upstairs bedroom on the meadow side. Your comfort is assured with our newly installed central a/c, or let the numerous ceiling fans draw in the bay breeze. On our wraparound deck you can soak up the sun or try your luck crabbing or fishing for flounder, weakfish, blues or striped bass that reach up to 40 lbs. Prefer shade? The westerly breezes will cool you in the comfort of our recently added screened porch. The sunsets from our deck are spectacular as you can see from the pictures. There is a marina, boat launch, and fishing jetty within walking distance. Bring your boat, kayak, windsurfer and any other beach toys as there is plenty of off street parking and a large shed for storage.

If you should fancy the occasional trip to the Oceanside, the beaches at Stone Harbor/Avalon are a scenic 15 minute ride away. Fine dining and unique shopping boutiques can be found in the historic Victorian village of Cape May 20 minutes to our south. For the kids, the Wildwood boardwalk with arcades, water parks and amusement rides is 20 minutes east.

For those who like to step out for the night life, Wildwood has numerous bars and nightclubs with many offering live bands. A short drive up the parkway, Atlantic City offers casino gambling and world class bands and entertainers.

So come enjoy the sunsets in our little slice of paradise, and don't forget to bring pooch.

Why jim murray chose Cape May Court House

my wife and I always dreamed of owning a home directly on the water. We can walk to our boat at the marina and spend the day fishing or just relax on the deck and watch some of the most beautiful sunsets on the east coast. We have a 6 year old yellow lab that loves to swim and run the beaches. Its very quiet here, yet close to just about everything.

What makes this house unique

In 2011 we completed the total renovation of our bay front home. It was very satisfying to complete each phase, from new roof, windows, floors, bathrooms, decks etc. But our favorite part, besides the sunsets, is waking up each morning and looking out over the bay through the 3 windows at the foot of our bed. You can literally see for miles without even lifting your head from the pillow. UPDATE--- OUR BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT HOME IS FINALLY COMPLETLY RENNOVATED We are so excited with the way everything turned out especially the screened porch. Last season we were booked from july thru the end of sept. and judging from the comments in our guest book everyone was thrilled with their stay.

Always Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am sure many of you have heard of Cape May, but have you ever heard of Reeds Beach??? Well let me tell you what you are missing. It is a small area within Cape May Courthouse with one long road into your own private wonderland! Centrally located near both Wildwood, Stone Harbor and Cape May is a beautiful beach home right on the bay backed by a bird sanctuary. Fish from your deck, take a bike ride, walk your dogs on a small private beach and watch absolutely amazing sunsets! This home has everything you need for a perfect relaxing getaway from everyday life! Jim is there to greet you and walk you through the home, and give you a few pointers on fishing! We have been fortunate to be here 5 times over the years! 4 bedrooms, two full bathrooms...........room for the whole family and your four legged friends! I could go on and on, but really you should see this one for yourself!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay this Bayfront home. Jim was very welcoming and everything was in great shape with the rental . Great location. Beautiful sunsets, fishing off the deck. Plenty of opportunities for activities at nearby beaches and attractions. Great vacation.

Unwind By the Water

  • 5 of 5

This lovingly kept home right on the water was ours for a week at the end of Summer 2016. The house comfortably fit our group of six, including 4 young adults who found lots to do in and around the area. Easy access to ocean and bay beaches, with a National Wildlife Reserve steps away. Cape May town just 12-15 minutes down the road is adorable with lots of restaurants, and vineyards and craft breweries all around to visit. We drove down despite dire predictions of Hurricane Hermine (which fizzled out and left beautiful weather all week) and our host couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The house is clean and well appointed, with very comfortable beds. Kitchen very workable, and there's a great supermarket in town. Spectacular sunsets, gentle sunrises. We even attempted painting the sights, an activity that matched the mood of the house and the week. We loved it. Oh, and so did our mid-sized therapy dog Maggie, who helped to exercise the wildlife in the area. Hope we can return soon. Thank you, Jim & Donna!

There's something for everyone at this beautiful Sunset Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Jim was fantastic. Answered our many questions and was the best host ever!!! We had 3 generations of family and everyone had a blast enjoying different aspects of bayfront living. From the beautiful bayfront sunsets, to the walks on different beaches in which we saw a Bald Eagle sitting right on the beach ahead of us. Boardwalks and shopping are 10 to 30 mins away, as well as lots of restaurants, or you can grill at the cottage and sit in the large screened in porch and see the marsh land from one side and the bay on the other. You don't even need to sit outside, you can see the beautiful bay from the many windows across the back of the house. We were fortunate enough so save lots of horseshoe crabs and even a few confused turtles find their way back to the bay.

Don't think about it, DO IT, this house has everything you need. We loved every minute and will be going back next year.

Thank you, very much, Jim and Donna!!!!

An Absolutely Magical Stay

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I spent a wonderful week at this fantastic cottage. The location is perfect and the water is literally at your doorstep! We saw hundreds of horseshoe crabs and lots of turtles. We spent hours roaming the nearby beach for "Cape May Diamonds" and enjoyed the quiet, friendly location. Though our week turned out to be windy from an offshore disturbance, it didn't hinder our enjoyment one bit. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and the owner, Jim, was super. We were greeted warmly and presented with a welcoming bottle of wine and box of fudge! Boy, he sure had our number!! LOL We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much, Jim and Donna!!! We will be back!

Amazing................ As Always!!!

  • 5 of 5

4th year in a row renting the Sunset Cottage. Need I say more!!!! Perfect location to be removed from the hustle and bustle of the New Jersey Shore BUT within 15 minutes of EVERYTHING!!! Wildwood, Stone Harbor, and Cape May are all 15 minutes away. Sit on the bay...Yes you are actually on the bay! Fish from the deck, kayak, bike cycling, crabbing, and Beautiful Sunsets are all at your doorstep! Sunset Cottage is everything you could ask for an a beach home. Everything is provided except towels and bed sheets (king size sheets are provided if you don't have that size) Everyone gets their privacy with the 4 bedrooms provided and of course your 4 legged family member can vacation too! Don't waste your money on any other home, this one is JUST WHAT YOU NEED!
