Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located along beautiful wooded Seagrove Ave, this thoroughly renovated (2009) apartment offers everything you need for your Cape May getaway. Great Location!

Clean and crisp, you'll find the LR and kitchen were taken to the rafters and wood floors were kept throughout. Located on the second floor above a garage, it offers a loft like feel and comes with a balcony and private court yard for grilling and lounging. Furnished with flair, Seagrove, Too comes with at least two bikes and beach chairs so you can step right into a Cape May frame of mind. Perfect for 1 or 2, yet will accommodate 4.

Please note: This apartment was designed for adults. There are open stairwells so no children, please.

About The Owner

My husband and I were living in Texas, I'd retired from teaching and was having fun with a design business I'd previously started. My family has great memories of growing up summers in the old family cottage on a lake in MA, and we all still take turns using the cottage. Yet, we'd always wanted a place of our own. We were looking for a fixer-upper in a good location near the ocean or in a deep water location for sailing. This is the house. At first sight, some would have considered it a tear down, but once inside, I could feel the possibilities. While John stayed home working, I spent from Nov.to mid June chipping, scraping, sanding, painting, sewing, hauling, and planting. Add the all important work of admired carpenters, plumbers and electricians and we now have our most loved 'little' house.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose Cape May

Cape May is beautiful, historic, and offers so much to do and be involved in, the town is charming. Cape May Point, down the road a little bit, has kept that very rare (any more) summer place feel we wanted. A person can bike any place they want to go if they feel like it. The beaches are wonderful, you can lounge and read and watch the dolphins play. Fishermen fish from certain beaches and jetties, there are lifeguards and good swimming beaches. The whole area of Cape May Point is green with trees and grass. With Cape May Bird Observatory's Hawkwatch close by, bring your binoculars, grab a bike, borrow a birding book, and head on down to the platform by the lighthouse.

What makes this apartment unique

Instead of having sidewalks where visitors stroll, we're able to have woods across the street belonging to an old estate. Seagrove is an old beautiful street, delightful to bike, walk,and live on. Most days you hear the surf and with all the trees, we've got birds aplenty singing their songs. It's a happy inviting sort of place. We're close to the lighthouse and Hawkwatch, and have all the Point beaches to choose from. Sometimes you just get on a bike and ride through the Point having a marvelous time. The flag ceremony at Sunset Beach is a bike ride away; once you go and take in the ceremony honoring a veteran, you'll think about going more often. Soon after the ceremony it's a good place to watch the sunset. If you want to stay home, well, you just pull out a chair and relax on the balcony or in the private courtyard.

Ideal cottage

My wife and I stayed here in summer 2016 - we met the owners and they are very nice. A wonderful place to stay in CMP. The owners did a great job decorating this cozy get away - we will definitely be back

Perfect Place for Two

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I spent a long weekend at Sea Grove and had a great time. It is a short drive or walk to Willow Creek Winery, one of our favorite places to visit in Cape May. The place was clean with a great, new kitchen. Kay is very quick to respond and very helpful with recommendations.

Une adresse qui aura une place de choix dans mon carnet pour mon prochain séjour. Les propriétaires ont tres bien décoré leur appartement, digne d'une revue de décoration. L'emplacement de l'appartement est très bien avec vue sur les canaux. Nous avons soupé sur la terrasse.

La cuisine est très bien équipée et pratique.

A lovely spot in a perfectly quiet town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 relaxing days in Cape May Point at the Seagrove Too. The accommodations were elegant and simple. I would highly recommend this clean and modern apartment, tucked away on a quiet offshoot from Sunset Blvd. Within walking distance of the lighthouse but very secluded. We were very comfortable there. Plenty of space for 2 people. Nice touch was the iPod sound systems which we used for our own music that we brought on our phones. Kitchen was easy to move around in. We were very pleased with all the pots, plates and utensils that were available. Many thanks to the owners for the care they show this apartment.

Perfect Relaxing Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is such a charming, comfortable and beautifully decorated apartment convenient to all! Had been to Cape May before but hadn't stayed in the Point area - will from now on. It's an easy bike ride on the provided bikes to the natural point beaches, the village, marinas, etc., and you definitely feel like you are getting away from it all. Wildlife is everywhere and enjoyed morning runs over to the lighthouse where a few nature trails begin which were wonderful to explore. Kay and John provided perfect instructions on all details ahead of time. We would highly recommend and hope to return!

vicki and gerry

  • 5 of 5

WOW! We were stunned by the lovely decor and practicality of the rental. Everything was available that we needed and we cooked almost all of our meals there. In between birding in am and pm, we could read, nap, explore birding sites on the I-pad, and listen to music. Since no one was in the bigger unit while we were there we had complete privacy. Conveniently located to the light house at CMP and to the Audubon shop. Beach was nearby but we went mainly to more northern beaches to see red knots and plenty of them. The birds were phenomenal. Loved it here and would choose to stay at the same place although we tried a different one first nearer the beach two years ago. This apt. was immaculate, comfortable and convenient. Couldn't have asked for more!
