About Victor Penico

Our family is only the fourth owner of our 140 year old Painted Lady. We pride ourselves in keeping this Victorian Gothic summer cottage true to her classic self.

Victor Penico purchased this cottage in 1966

Why Victor Penico chose Southern Shore Region

We enjoy the seaside pleasures of walking to a beautiful guarded beach, seeing the lighthouse, enjoying the water, & watching the dolphins frolic. Fresh seafood is nearby in Cape May and so are many fresh fruit and vegetable stands. Culture and entertainment are two miles down Sunset Blvd. in Cape May. Atlantic City casinos are about 40 minutes north.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the peacefulness of the Point compared to Cape May. Walking on the quiet beaches at sunset, biking or relaxing with a good book on the porch and enjoying the bounty of seafood and fresh produce makes for an rejuvenating experience.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is great- its modest, but clean and everything works. Outside shower, porch are nice. The bed is comfortable. The location is excellent - a 5 minute walk to a great beach. Good place to store bikes

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Cape may Point is one of the last beach communities without commercialism. There are three businesses; Audubon Society Store, Red Store Cafe and the man that sells ice cream on the beach. There was nothing else we needed except our bikes. The apartment had the comfort and ambiance of my grandmother's home. Outdoor shower, windows and doors with screens allowed you to remember that you're at the beach.

Lovely CMP Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, modest, and exactly as advertised. The cleanest place I ever ever stayed in. Short walk to the beach, and very close to the State Park. Comfy bed. Kitchen very well equipped. Reliable wi-fi. Wonderful place. Would like to go back for a month next time.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have kept going back to PenPoint from time to time for the last 20 years. There were many improvements made since our previous stay, which made our stay even more agreeable. We love the small walk to the beach to watch the sun set.

Week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The top floor apartment was nice, and very close to the beach, about 50 yards from the beach entrance.

The town of CMP is very quiet compared to Cape May.

Owner's Response: We're adding photos of the beach entrance at end of Cape Ave. so future renters can see how close Penn Point is to the ocean.
