About the property

9 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 22, 5 king, 2 queen, 2 twin, 1 bunk, 2 sofa bed

Located in Cape May proper this wonderful Cottage sleeps up to 22 adults, the 1st floor with 4 bedrooms/3 baths (sleeps 10) our 2nd floor with 5 bedrooms/3 baths (sleeps 12). Both floors have ocean views from the rooms in the rear of the house. Come relax, enjoy, dine in, dine out, steps to the beach, steps to all the pleasures of Cape May and the gas lit streets. This fully renovated, cozy and bright house will be your home away from home with all the comforts you need. Located 400 feet to the beach and a few short blocks to shopping, restaurants, Victorian Cape May and the Washington Street Mall. This house sleeps 2-22 adults in a 9 bedroom, 6 bath home with a kitchen, a dining room, a living room and laundry facilities on each floor. The first floor has a large covered front porch and a covered rear deck with ocean views. The second floor has a covered rear deck with ocean views.

This large, historical home was completely renovated. The house features new ceramic tile, furniture, appliances, beds, bedding, carpet, paint, awnings, bikes, beach chairs and BBQ grill. This house is so close to the beach you will hear and see the ocean roar while relaxing on the rear decks. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise from the rear decks or stroll 400' feet to the beach and promenade to watch the sunrise or sunset over the ocean. Both are magnificent. There are also two outside showers and a hose for rinsing off after a relaxing day on the beach.

Cape May is a unique and wonderful seaside resort town with a spectacular beach, fabulous fishing and numerous outstanding restaurants.

Cape May is also known for its historical and colorful Victorian homes and its antique shops. Cape May offers narrated horse drawn carriage rides and open air trolley tours. Seasonal events include Jazz Festivals, Craft Shows, Vineyard Tours, Home Tours, Strawberry Festival, Peach Festival, Lima Bean Festival, Wine Festival, Film Festival, Victorian Fair, Art Shows, Antique Car Shows, Independence Day Parade, Halloween Parade, Christmas Parade and even a Pet Parade.

No other shore community meets the needs or wants of visitors than Cape May does because Cape May is conveniently located 10 minutes to Wildwood, 15 minutes to Stone Harbor, 20 minutes to Avalon, 25 minutes to Sea Isle City, 35 minutes to Ocean City and 45 minutes to Atlantic City. All are great seaside towns with more activities than you could ever conquer.

Sheets can be provided as follows: 5 king, 2 queen, 3 twin, 3 full (includes sheets for both sofa beds) - sheet cost $250.00. These are whole house counts and costs. For single floor rentals, the counts and cost would be half of what is outlined above. Comparable cost from a local rental company is over $600. plus delivery fee. Our rental also includes use of 24 beach bikes (kids bikes with training wheels upon request), 20 beach chairs, 3 beach carts, 3 beach umbrellas and a wagon (upon request) for the little ones at no additional charge.

About Kevin Soler

Here I am with my wife Deb, she makes sure your arrival at our Cottage is cleaned correctly by our cleaning comany and your stay is well organized. Our goal is to make your stay exceptional. Also pictured is one of our boys, Smokey, a poodle/daschund mix that we rescued in Arizona. Marco, our white toy poodle puppy isn't pictured but he is always with us too. All four of us love walking around Cape May. You may see us on your visit to our fantastic home. We love the beach and the ocean and especially enjoy walking the gas lit streets in the evening. My daughters also have fond memories of the beach, zoo and time spent in all the nearby seaside communities including Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Sea Isle City, Ocean City and the many towns in between. Our boys want us to make our retreat available to other well behaved boys and girls, both of their world and of ours so come, stay, relax and enjoy our home. Perhaps we will see you on one of our walks and may God bless and enrich each and everyone that visits our home.

Kevin Soler purchased this house in 2010

Why Kevin Soler chose Historic District

We love Cape May so much that this is our fourth purchase in the Cape May area; 3 of which are vacation rentals. Feel free to check out our other rentals. Just click 'My Properties' above to view all our vacation homes. We chose this house for its spaciousness and its ocean views and so we could attempt to satisfy all the reservations we have not been able to fill with our first two vacation homes. This home offers you the chance to bring several generations of family together. You can rent the entire house to sleep up to 22 adults or in the off season rent just the first floor which will sleep 2-10 adults. Each floor consists of its own kitchen, dining room, living room and laundry facilities.

What makes this house unique

You will be cradled in comfort with the newly installed central air and heat. No other home in Cape May has 3 kitchens and 5 king beds in over 4200 square feet. We love watching the sunrise and the frolicking dolphins from the rear decks and dining area. It is also great having a back yard for a barbecue. We love walking through Cape May, picture taking, imagining what it was like when only the gas lights lit the streets, wondering whom would come out from one of the wonderful Victorian homes with their vivid display of colors and decorations. Christmas must have been a special season in days gone by, as it is today in Cape May. It is a place to fall in love again. A great place to walk hand in hand. We love being able to walk to some of the finest restaurants in the country. Its your turn to explore this great area. Come stay, relax and enjoy all of what Cape May has to offer.

Girls week in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Kevin (the owner) for providing such a great home for us to have our Girls week in Cape May. We had 22 women of all ages and so enjoyed the house and the area. We have been getting together each October for 20 plus years. With the 9 bedrooms and 6 baths plus all the amenities in the house, we couldn't have asked for more. Will be returning next October for more fun and laughs!

It doesn't get any better!!

  • 5 of 5

Thoughtful, helpful touches throughout the cottage were made even more special by the meticulously clean and spacious accommodations. We have already booked for next year. (Be advised that if several family members bring vehicles, parking can be a bit of a challenge.)

Owner's Response: Great headline, thanks for enjoying our Cottage. We encourage all our guests to utilize our driveway for parking up to 4 cars, 2 more cars can park directly on street in front of our home. Our entire street and surrounding blocks are non-meter parking for everyone that enjoys Cape May Beaches. We are beach block, 400' to sun & sand. We encourage everyone to utilize the driveway parking we provide, it's just easier and not a challenge.
