Roomy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Super spacious and comfortable home conveniently located near the heart of Cape May. Everything is practically within a 5 minute drive - fishing boats, shopping, restaurants and the ocean. I liked that we could also walk to downtown within 20 minutes - no need to stress about parking. Owner was very pleasant to communicate with - couldn't have been nicer. Will be returning to this house in the Fall.

Great vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in this home and we enjoyed it so much that we have booked it for several week in summer 2016. The house was spacious and we particularly enjoyed the fenced in yard for our dogs, the large deck and the homey feel of the property. The location was excellent and within walking distance of excellent restaurants, historic homes. the Washington Mall and the beach. Also, the owner was very cooperative and responsive. All in all, our vacation was outstanding!

Clean, spacious, and kid- and dog-friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th home we've stayed in while vacationing and one of the best. The house is much bigger than it looks with a back yard large enough for dogs to be as happy as their families. Very clean, I did not have to worry about the kids playing on the floor. We were very happy and hope to return in 2016.
