About Rob Blaker

Having grown up at the Jersey Shore (North Wildwood), I've never quite lost the 'sand in my shoes' so when the opportunity arose to purchase this lovely home just blocks from the beach in such a wonderful, year-round shore town, my family and I couldn't resist. We are a 'beach' family and vacationed in Cape May when our 27 and 22 year-old sons were younger. There was always something about Cape May that drew us there. The great beach, fantastic restaurants, art galleries, antiques and other specialty shops on and around the Washington Street Mall, the people, and I could go on and on. We're looking forward to enjoying and sharing our 'Shore Escape' for many years to come...

Rob Blaker purchased this house in 2013

Why Rob Blaker chose Village Green

Cape May, by far, offers much more than any other Jersey shore town. From the Victorian era homes and WWII history to the scenic coastal beauty and protected wetlands and birding sites, it offers something for everyone! Our beach house is a short 5 blocks from a beautiful and protected beach as well as many of the great town's many attractions!

What makes this house unique

From our home you can walk to the beach, marina, The Fisherman's Memorial, Audubon Society Wildlife Center, world class restaurants, ice creams shops, and antique stores. We are a short walk or bike ride to the historic district.

Cape May is a national historic landmark with a wide variety of activities to enjoy. The beach being one of the major joys. Swim, surf, fish, and para-sail. Eco-tourism is popular and the Audubon Society has a museum within walking distance of the house. There are museums and world class playhouses. Art galleries and artist s populate the town. There is a large collection of Victorian era homes featuring tours. Take a carriage ride or trolley tour through the historic district. Climb the 199 steps of the CM lighthouse and tour the natural history museum. Visit the WWII bunker and observation tower. Pick up 'Cape May Diamonds' at Cape May point beach in front on the sunken ship 'Atlantis'.

The birds love Cape May and attract many people who love to watch and admire them!

There are many great restaurants, wineries, breweries, and shopping opportunities too!

You will run out of time and money before you run out of fun things to do!

Cape May

Comfy, Cozy and Charming really does describe this Beach Cottage.

Using the outdoor shower after a day on the beach was great. We enjoyed eating dinner on the outside patio.

The driveway was a great place for the 4 year old in our party to play.

Shore Escape is well maintained, comfortable and extremely clean.

It has a great garden area in the back.

The neighborhood is a very quiet tree lined street.

The kitchen has everything you need & a great grill out in the patio.

We enjoyed the walk to the beach.

The living room was very comfortable and a great place to sit and read or watch TV.

We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the morning and evening with a book.

Thank you Rob & Sue for sharing your Shore Escape with us. Hope to return again.
