Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week in Cape May in this beautiful home. Open floor plan on the first floor provided easy flow for living and socializing for 9 adults. The location was great....quick walk to the beach. There was ample off-street parking for 4 cars, which is very desirable in this section of town. Front porch and 2nd floor back deck was used throughout the week. There are 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor (3 are small and did not have closets but there was a hall closet) and 1 bedroom on the 5th floor. Only issue was with refrigerator not operating properly when we arrived, but the owner was very responsive and a repairman came to fix it.

Super week in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. It has been very tastefully renovated, and is in great shape. The house is also in an excellent location, as you can walk to the beach, downtown, as well as grocery store, liquor store, pharmacy and some excellent takeout (Key West tacos and Gecko's in particular).

It has all of the amenities of a great beach house such as an outdoor shower, a new bbq, rocking chairs on the front porch, big backyard, laundry facilities etc., plus parking, which is quite rare in Cape May.

We are a family of 5, and we met my wife's sister and her family of 4, and we had more than enough space. The kids (2, 4, 8, 8 and 11) LOVED being upstairs in their private loft. The main floor is beautiful, with a brand new gourmet kitchen with dining area. The family room was great as well, as it was large enough to accommodate all of us. One of the best features however was the second floor balcony in the rear, which had a great patio set and loungers. We enjoyed quite a few meals up there, where we would get a nice breeze from the ocean (and therefore very few mosquitos!).

Overall we had a great stay and loved this property. We will definitely try to stay here again!

Thank you Gerard and Jane!

Amazing home for long weekend escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best visit this past weekend - the house was perfect for our weekend retreat, celebrating my mom's 60th. It was a great layout (we are 10, with three little kids under the age of 4) and so close to the beach. We spent our weekend relaxing, cooking (they have a great kitchen space and totally open first floor which is perfect for larger families/groups), going to the zoo, the beach, walking in town and had an amazing dinner at the Washington Inn! The house is clean, lovely decorated, and is well kept. They have such a lovely home and we are so thrilled we were able to stay in it for the long weekend! Cannot wait to plan our next trip.

I think our family has finally found the perfect Cape May house for us! It has everything we've been looking for for the past few years --- ample offstreet parking, large modern kitchen/dining area, large family area with TV, and within walking distance to beach, mall and restaurants as well as the owners being very accessible if needed. Our grandkids (and daughters) are asking if we are staying here again next year!! If all goes well, we would love to come and stay again.

Perfect Extended Family Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a gorgeous home, MUCH larger than the pictures depict and everything was completely renovated. My wife and cousin organized a late mother's day weekend for our parents. They absolutely loved it. One of the selling points of the house was a huge fully-stocked kitchen. My cousin is a professional chef and she loved using the kitchen to cook for a family of 12. The brand new gas grill was a plus, in addition to the all new kitchen appliances. The two bathrooms also very spacious and newly renovated. The young nephews loved the third floor loft. We could fit all 12 of us comfortably on the outside rooftop deck.

We also easily fit four cars in the backyard grass parking spots. This is definitely a plus given that street parking is at a premium (especially on weekends). There are very few free spots but many hourly paid parking in the area. The location is fantastic, only about 3 blocks from the beach and only about 4 blocks from the downtown shopping area. We hope to make this an annual tradition.

We also met the next door neighbors (the other half of the duplex) owners who happened to be down for the weekend. If you are looking for a place to fit 22-26 people, you could consider renting both halves of the duplex. I think they are also (or will be) on VRBO.

Communication with the owners was a breeze and we enjoyed checking out pictures of the house on Facebook prior to our visit. The Comcast wireless internet (they allow you to use their username/password) was super fast for your ipads/macbooks

We will definitely be back for another visit. Thanks again!!

Beautiful home, beautiful town!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family trip to Cape May for the last weekend in April, and loved it! The home was beautiful, true to the pictures, comfortably fit 7 adults with room to spare. We walked everywhere, very close to the beach (amazing sunrise and sunsets!), town shopping and restaurants. We planned the trip asa Christmas gift for our parents and they keep saying how great it was, such a nice place to visit for a relaxing get away. Although we were there a month before the vacation season is in full swing there was still plenty to do. The listing accurately reflects the home and town, and the owners were quick to communicate, offer tips on places to go and answer any questions. I fully plan to revisit Cape May and stay in the home again; highly recommended!!! Hope any other visitors enjoy it as much as we did.
