Hi All - we are Scott and Rhonda Gibbs. We have restored two 5 Star vacation properties in Cape May. The Whalers Cottage built in 1870 is one of the most popular vacation rentals in Cape May w/over 25 5 star ratings. We just finished renovating The John Hand Black and White House Built in 1700 (Homeaway Listing # 4851711) This is a luxury retreat born out of a complete renovation of the oldest house in Cape May. We always try to give our guests a great experience while in one of the best places on earth - Cape May NJ!
Owner purchased this House in 2014
Why Owner chose Cape May
The Whalers Cottage is just awesome. Its filled with high end amenities and is really comfortable, but also has a ton of artifacts from the 60's and 70's. Rhonda did all of the decorating and if you are 40-50 something you will see tons of little items around the brands we grew up with ; Coke, JNJ, Campbells reflected in there original form. It is on a quiet street and really convenient to beach, town and attractions
What makes this House unique
The house comfortably sleeps 10, has every amenity you could wish for. Park your car and use the bikes or walk everywhere. Sit out front in the AM for your coffee its shady and quiet. We love the house and plan to retire there someday. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Great house in town
I only was here for 1 night and rented bigger to accommodate more people in case they came. I only had 6 people and it was much bigger than I needed but very cozy sitting around the table chatting with the girls. We did walk from town and it was a little farther than I thought it was but overall it's a great place with the people who own it very easy to deal nice and easy to deal with
Clean, comfortable, amazing!
The Whalers Cottage was perfect for my group! The rooms and entire house were extremely clean (it even smelled clean when we arrived!). The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious. There is so much space in this house that even with 9 people, it didn’t feel crowded at all! I would definitely recommend this location to anyone. It is perfect for friends or family. If I am ever visiting Cape May with a larger group again, I will definitely book this house.
Plenty of charm.
This lovely home was as described. Plenty of charm and room for our guests. It was clean and in close proximity to our function. We would stay here again.
