Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this property! I have been vacationing in Cape May since my childhood (30 plus years). This is the first year that we rented a home and could not have been happier. The location is outstanding! A short walk to the beach and also access to a trolley stop which we used frequently. We barely drove during our entire stay. The home is exceptionally clean, bright and spacious, has a full kitchen and wonderful front porch. With 5 children having access to a washer/dryer was a huge bonus. The owner is fabulous to work with and we have already booked our vacation for next year. We can't wait to come back!

Adorable vacation house - steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units of this house for a girls getaway weekend (14 of us in our late twenties) and it worked out perfectly! The house is just up the street from the beach (~5 min walk) and is also walking distance to downtown Cape May (restaurants, bars, etc.). We shared beds and all slept very comfortably! Sally was extremely responsive and helpful throughout our weekend. The kitchen was perfect for cooking for the large group - we will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Mother-daughter get away! We loved staying here and would do so again. Excellent location, away from the hub, but easy to walk to the shops. Landlord is friendly and price was right. Furnishings are in great shape and cute. Kitchen is great; had everything we needed. It would have been nice to have more TV channels, only had 3-4 options, but we were on vacation so didn't focus on that too much. No complaints; wonderful place to stay. And we could hear the ocean!! I suspect we'll be back.

Owner's Response: Really nice tenants. I did have a chance to meet them and they were very gracious and kind. I wish I knew they had trouble with the tv because I would have helped. I am a very responsive landlord. I did check the tv service and it looks like many channels are in our package. It was so sweet of them to write the review.

Walk a block to the beach from this sweet 2 bedroom 2 bath rental unit

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I wanted a place from which we could walk to the beach, shopping and dining. This lovely unit worked perfectly for us! We enjoyed the ocean breezes from the deck - ate dinner on the deck in the evenings. The beds/baths are very comfortable and we would definitely rent again!

Wonderful and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this house! It really is just a block from the beach and so convenient but also private enough to feel comfortable. The furnishings are great and even included beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards. There was also lots of outside seating available for meals outside which worked great for our family. Sally was also very helpful with arrangements, payments, and information that we needed along the way.
