This gorgeous home is owned by 3 families that have known each other for many years and have vacationed together in Cape May for a number of years. We vacationed in this very home for the past 12 years and when the property came up for sale, we knew it was our 'dream come true' and subsequently purchased the property in February of 2012. Our 'Labor of Love' ended in June of 2012 with a top to bottom complete renovation of the home. The owners of this home come from all over the globe- including Australia, Canada, and New York City! Our diverse backgrounds have come together to design a wonderful vacation home for all! This home affords us the opportunity to share our property with others through weekly and weekend rentals.
Frank purchased this House in 2012

Excellent rental option!
The house was spacious, clean, and comfortable; practically across the street from the beach; and a few minutes walk from several restaurants and attractions. Highly recommend!
Thank you very much for your great review of our home! We hope you stay with us again soon!
The house worked well for eight of us old codgers visiting the area to peddle our bikes around
The space is nicely furnished and the rooms are of good portion. Both the interior and porch are attractive and appealing though the picture of the exterior on line is more colorful than the way it is currently painted. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening cocktails on the porch. Frank, the owner, seemed quite available and helpful. The instructions were explicit and thorough.
A few other comments:
The back door was leaking due to heavy rain when we arrived and that back area seldom thoroughly dried out..
The clothes dryer was making some strange noises.
Wi-Fi doesn't work on third floor.
Several of our party felt the chairs on the front page would have been more comfortable if they had been a bit smaller (narrower).
I'm not sure but I thought maybe the law required at least two means of egress from third floor. I could find only one.
Overall we really like the accommodations.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the accommodations.
Our house is painted exactly as shown in our photos. Perhaps the dark rainy days you encountered during your stay made the house appear less colorful? Sunshine always makes things brighter! Our photos were taken on a gloriously sunny Cape May day!
The back door did leak and you reported the leak to me immediately. We are aware of the issue and are having a new awning installed in the off season over that rear porch door. Along with that, our contractor is going to fix this issue as soon as our rentals are done. We have been booked solid since early June!
The washer and dryer were purchased in 2017. Brand new top of the line models. You never once contacted me about these "strange noises." Had you called me, I would have had a service technician there within an hour! I pride myself on making your stay as perfect as I possibly can!
The Wifi works throughout the house and on the front porch. Perhaps the wifi connectivity issue was on your end? I am available 24/7 to help with any problems you encounter but you never called me about your issue and yet you bring it up in your review? To write "Wifi doesn't work on the third floor" is an absolute false statement. We tested wifi connectivity in every room after your departure. No issues whatsoever!
Now to your last two comments:
1) "Several of our party felt the chairs on the front page would have been more comfortable if they had been a bit smaller (narrower)"
My family and I absolutely love the oversized front porch furniture! We enjoy coffee and conversation every morning and wonderful family time throughout the day wonderfully comfortable oversized furniture! Perhaps when renting another property you should sit on the porch furniture before booking to ensure it's narrow enough for you?
2) ). "I'm not sure but I thought maybe the law required at least two means of egress from third floor. I could find only one. Overall we really like the accommodations."
If you are not sure of something, wouldn't it be prudent to ask the question of the owner rather than ignorantly questioning such things in a review? Had you asked me, I would have explained in great detail how, every year, our home is inspected by the City of Cape May Fire Department. The Cape May Fire Department then issues to us a certificate of compliance to local fire safety laws which allows us to lawfully rent our home.
Beautiful, comfortable, well maintained house
Celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary, there were 12 of staying in the house (8 adults and 4 children) for a weekend. There were plenty of beds and bedrooms for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house was remarkably clean and well appointed. The bathrooms and kitchen were gorgeous and seemed recently renovated. 2 coffee makers a plus for our large group! The dining room table is huge and was perfect for meals and games. The porch is also huge and a great spot to relax. We didn't want much TV, but there were ample screens in the house.
Frank was a terrific host. We were getting ready for group pictures and found the iron was broken and ironing board missing. Frank provided excellent communication and had a new ones delivered within an hour.
Overall we had an excellent stay. It rained the entire weekend, but thanks to the size, comfort, beauty, and cleanliness of the house, a great time was had by all with a lot of quality family time. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. No linens are included and we brought our own sheets and towels, but this also means no dish towels or rags. It may be worthwhile to have a few dish towels, rags, and pot holders available in the kitchen.
Thanks so much for your great review and constructive criticism. I am so glad you brought up the iron and ironing board issue. As soon as you reported that the iron was leaking and the ironing board had been removed from the dining room closet where it always is, I immediately called our local supplier and had them deliver another iron and brand new ironing board. As mentioned in your review, they were there within an hour! Communication between owner and renters is key to a successful stay. So glad we were able to get that squared away for you quickly and efficiently! Where the ironing board disappeared to is an unsolved mystery!
Like most homes in Cape May, it is true that we do not supply linens. We may reconsider that position in the offseason.
We do have pot holders at the house. We often find them misplaced after several weeks of continuous rentals. In fact, a few weeks ago one pot holder glove was found in the BBQ!
We will be sure to include dish towels as we move into the next rental season.
Thanks again for choosing Seas The Moment for your stay in Cape May!
Very nice house, good lication, super beach with dolphins
Nice house, superbe beach with dolphins, good location.
Ideal for family holidays. Hey
Beautiful house, fantastic location, great porch
Loved our stay. Perfect for multiple families. House was beautiful. Great porch for relaxing. Easy walk to the beach and town for restaurants, shopping, arcade, mini golf. The house has a modern kitchen, bathrooms, etc. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Thank you so much for your kind words about our home. So very happy you enjoyed your stay at Seas The Moment!
Conveniently located to everything
We had a wonderful family vacation, 10 adults, 2 children, plenty of room. One block to beach was super convenient. Second and third floors (3 bedrooms each) shared a bathroom on each floor and bathroom on first floor was in the “honeymoon room”.
House was very comfy with nice furnishings. Outdoor shower was a plus so as not to bring sand into house.
Only little problem was bbq grill had been left so dirty we did not use and smoke alarm went off everytime we used oven even though there was no smoke. Small problem considering all the upsides.
We would definitely consider renting this home again.
Thank you for the kind review Sharon and for being a repeat renter with us. We appreciate your feedback!
In response to the minor issues you had, I am available 24 hours a day/7 days a week to address problems you encountered during your stay. The bbq being un-cleaned is unfortunate. We ask that renters treat our home as if it was their own while they stay with us but sometimes that doesn't always happen. The bbq should have been clean for your arrival. We have implemented a plan with our maintenance crew to check the bbq at check out to insure this doesn't happen again!
The issue with the smoke detector was never brought to my attention. If it had been, you can be certain it would have been addressed by our maintenance team. All the smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors were changed shortly before the high rental season. The City of Cape May Fire Department inspected our property and gave us a certificate of compliance which allows us to rent the property. Every single smoke detector/carbon monoxide detector was replaced with new Kidde Lithium battery detectors that have a 10 year battery in them. With any technological advance, there can be faulty devices and it appears we had one! We recently installed a new detector after reading your review and this problem should be resolved. If you should choose to stay with us again, please remember that I am available at any time during your stay to answer any questions or concerns you might have. We strive to make our property the best that it can be and are always here to address any and all concerns without hesitation! Thank you again for staying with us over the years! We really do appreciate it!
Home is located in the Cape May historic district within walking distance to world class restaurants, bars and the Washington street mall. The white sand beach and promenade are a 75 yard walk!
