This is a great family house done in the traditional upside down style used to take advantage of beach views. The north deck has 2 picnic tables on it, as well as other seating. It is a great place to check out the morning waves while sipping that first cup of coffee, or for enjoying a home grilled dinner (watch out for those seagulls though, they are fast!) The east deck is covered and a nice place to escape the midday sun. It's breezy and cozy all at once! It is also used in the evening to sneak an occasional cigar or after dinner drink. Both decks are great places to watch the world go past by air, land or sea. The living room has a unique built in bar area complete w/keg fridge. It's great for adults but our kids love it as a place to snack and play games.
The bathrooms are a bit unique in that the master bath has a double headed shower, and the other downstairs bathroom is separated into two rooms, one w/two distinct sink areas and the other comprising the toilet and shower. This configuration is especially useful during rush hour! To me the best shower is found outside, where all the sand and salt can be washed off under the sun or stars...depending on how late you are. There is a downstairs deck as well, where beach toys and chairs can be found, and in the side yard there is even a good, old fashioned clothes line for sandy towels and wet suits. Almost all of the beds are new foam mattress beds, making for a great night's sleep! The driveway has parking for four, or use the street and let the kids use the drive way for games and biking.

My brother and I are from a large family and both my husband and sister-in-law come from north of the border. We collaborate well..working and playing together here. Our kids have been lucky to grow up together in this house during their summers and in the off season. In fact, our favorite times have been spending early fall, Thanksgiving, and New Years here. The town spruces up for the holidays, and it's so nice and quiet too.
Felicia Angus purchased this house in 1993
My parents had a place in Stone Harbor since before I was born. Then many members of the extended family began settling here as well. When my husband and I got married and moved to London, we would come to Stone Harbor for our family holidays. In fact we were married in Stone Harbor, and had our reception in Cape May. So you can see the area has special meaning for us. One New Year's Holiday a friend and sister-in-law spotted this property and the rest was history. We bought the house w/one of my brothers, making the trans-Atlantic ownership much easier. Along the way a few of my other brothers have purchased properties on the island and Stone Harbor has been our family reunion 'beach week' spot for going on 30 years now. The 20 cousins all have such a good time together that they are now petitioning for 'beach weeks!'
What makes this house great is that it is so close to the beach and an easy walk to town. Because of its proximity to the water we often find our house used as the base camp on beach days. What I love is when it's not too hot to keep the windows open you can go to bed to the sounds of the ocean at night and wake up to the sounds of the gulls in the morning. The house is on a bigger lot too, and that gives it a sense of privacy...as do the big old trees out front. It is not a new house, but an older house modernized w/a bit of funk...the old wood charm mixed in w/the new world functional that just makes it a great house to vacation.
My siblings and cousins spent a wonderful weekend here. Every year since our parents passed away we have met somewhere to stay connected and have a good time together. This house was perfect for us in the amount of space it provided - both personal space in the bedrooms and together space in the living areas. We could (and did) sit on the deck and talk for hours. We could (and did) sit inside and watch football games. We could (and did) sit up late in small groups and raid the fridge. It's close enough to town to walk. It's close enough to the beach - one block! - to go over and over again. The house isn't brand new and shiny, but rather exudes the love from family and good care. The contact with the owners was prompt, easy, and very accurate. Would highly recommend.
We had a wonderful stay in this very clean well kept home Stone Harbor - all the little touches were there for a weeks stay! Your right on the beach in less than 2 minutes! You can spread out in this place from large bedrooms to the great common areas including a covered deck. You have great space from neighbors so that you don't feel like you have to keep it to a minimum - highly recommended for family's and friends.
This large home is fantastic for a family beach vacation. It offers private and quiet bedrooms with excellent mattresses on the first floor and a huge open second floor for family gatherings. There is extra off-street parking and plenty of open lot space. The kitchen is very large and very well equipped. The living room has comfortable seating for many ....but the best part is the second floor covered deck facing the water. It is very large, has comfy furniture, rocking chairs and an amazing view of the beach. The owners are very friendly, very helpful and very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this home for a real beach vacation.
My family just checked out of this house a week ago and we absolutely LOVED it and miss it!! It is the perfect vacation house. It is extremely child friendly, but has so many features that adults love!! It has everything you would want and/or need. It is a charming house with so many practical amenities that allow renters to just go there and enjoy. The covered deck is by far the best deck I saw in Stone Harbor and adds so much more living space. The owners are great to work with and come highly recommended. We are renting again next year and can't wait to go back. So grateful to find this gem! We look forward to spending many more summer vacations there!!
My family and I just finished our stay at this rental yesterday and we loved it so much we booked it again for next year. It is perfectly designed and the owners have gone above and beyond to provide the amenities to make it a perfect vacation home. It has such charm and character that it feels like home. Not to mention that it is extremely child friendly and totally met our needs with four little ones under the age of three with us. The covered deck it by far the best feature and I miss it already. Anyone lucky enough to enjoy this place will never want to rent anywhere else. Great owners to work with who understand exactly what you want when renting a beach house. Our family is beyond grateful that we stayed at such a fantastic place and look forward to many more years at this home!! Worth every penny!
Our family celebrated a wedding in Stone Harbor and sought a home for an extended weekend stay. This house was perfect! The bedrooms and bathrooms accommodated the "getting ready" rush and the outdoor porch offered a respite from the wedding activities. The owners were very accommodating. The house offered all that was needed for a weekend or week long stay, including the lovely sound of the ocean waves hitting the shore.
