Car: Recommended

Bird watching at Sanctuary within walking distance, located on street leading to the surfing beach in Stone Harbor. Cape May County Zoo a few miles away is one of the finest zoos in the US and is 100% FREE. Surfing beach is only 2.5 blocks from house. 20 minutes from Ocean City and Wildwood boardwalks and historic Cape May. Wetlands Institute is our gem-take boat tours of the wetlands, hear lectures on topics related to nature and ecology. Finally, Stone Harbor has the best shopping for high quality clothing/jewelry and art in a small area of anyplace I have ever been.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have spent decades enjoying Stone Harbor with family and friends. It isn't a wild, crazy, party resort, though there is live music (rock and roll mostly) at Fred's in town and some evenings at Coffee Talk, a cafe on 97th Street. We love the safe, quiet atmosphere of the South End of Stone Harbor, where 'Whimsea' is located. In town, less than a mile away, there is plenty of fun outdoor activity and lots of fabulous boutique shopping along with antiques stores nearby, mini golf, movies! The beaches are wonderful and almost never crammed with people like other resorts. This is a special place we want to share with you as your vacation sanctuary You will want to return again and again!

Why the Owner Chose Stone Harbor, NJ, USA:
We bought our house here because Stone Harbor is immaculately clean, safe and beautiful. There is so much to do in such close proximity to this house. You really only need one car because you can walk or ride bikes to the market, town and anything in Stone Harbor or Avalon. They call this 'Seven Mile Island': nice bike loop and bike lanes on Second Avenue make this 'kid friendly' and more relaxing for parents!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beach two blocks away with bonus of the Stone Harbor surfing beach to the right side. The house is very comfortable with soft buttery leather couches and recliner in living room. The second story deck is wonderful at night and sunset. This is a large beach and you can see the Ocean two blocks away. Charming, quaint and cottage-like and close to everything you need!
