Why carol gilligan chose Southern Shore Region

We love Cape May Point. From the moment we drive in from North Jersey we feel the peace and serenity of this enchanting little town. The sound of the surf, the sweet smell of salt air, the chirping of birds, and the lush gardens and greenery everywhere are part of the lore. Our delightful home is accessorized with many original uplifting paintings which are our pride and joy.

What makes this house unique

It is fun to cook in Cape May. Seafood is abundant and unbelievably priced. There are farm markets with amazing, again, unbelievably priced produce. We are right down the street from a beautifully duned beach entrance. There is a life guard on that beach.

The cottage is called "Chasing Rainbows" and we have spent a number of happy times there. It is cheerful and bright, the wrap-around porch is a wonderful plus, the kitchen is well equipped with the grill just steps away.

It is a convenient location and a great area in which to walk around and yet be right at the beach.

I didn't love it. The location is great but the house and property itself are tired. The yard is overgrown and not well maintained. The house's interior was very dusty. Furniture is old and worn. The property is in a wonderfully quiet and serene location. But because of the condition of the building and the property , I felt that the price was too high.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear you weren't happy with our cottage, but I'm also surprised. We've been renting for years and the feedback has always been glorious. Many of our tenants return year after year. Our listing on VRBO is accurate and the many photos tell the story of the home. The kitchen and 2 1/2 baths were updated two years ago. The house is comfortable, inviting and fun. I'm sorry you couldn't appreciate that. We pride ourselves in the maintenance of our home and we enjoy our charming cottage gardens. Surely you were able to enjoy our incredible screened porch. Everyone raves about it! We have an excellent cleaning service and they do a thorough job every single week. Again, you are the first person to be dissatisfied. Cape May Point is a quaint little town and our home was built in 1880. We have very purposely decorated it on keeping with a whimsical Victorian beach cottage.
