About the property

4 Bedroom 2.5 Bath With Large Wrap Around Porch

Located just a short walk to Cape May's prettiest beach, The Cove, some amazing restaurants and The Washington Street Pedestrian Mall, our home will provide you with relaxing days at the beach and tranquil evenings rocking on the Porch listening to the sounds of the sea.

The home, circa 1850, is a wonderful mix of modern convenience and romantic ambience. We are strategically nestled in the center of a quiet, tree lined street among other Historic homes and gardens. You can walk to the corner to a Market for morning coffee, fresh vegetables and gourmet cuts of meat, 4 charming diverse restaurants, a French Cheese Shop and a bakery!

Our home features a large wrap around Porch with new and antique wicker furniture. The gardens provide areas for children to play safely, quiet conversation and memorable seashore meals.

The home also features central air, ceiling fans, flat screen TVS/DVD, new furniture and new beds and new mattresses.

We have 4 lovely bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large Kitchen for cooking and entertaining. The living room, family room and dining area are all newly furnished and wonderful for gathering for meals, films or just a quiet read!

The house has walls of large windows and the rooms flood with sunlight. Outside we have a NEW Outdoor Shower to accommodate sandy feet.

Seashells was designed to help us renew and relax and collect some new memories. We now invite you to collect some for yourself!!!!

What a wonderful house. Our bookclub of 5 women really enjoyed everything about this house. The living area is large and accommodating for large crowds. The kitchen is big and had everthing we needed. All of the bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. We had coffee on the front porch which has seating for about 8 people. If you are looking for a great home to vacation in this is it. Thank you Don for the privilege of sharing you home.

Wonderful Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4adults, 3children) have truly enjoyed our stay the past two years at this beautiful, spacious home. The house is light and airy so even on an overcast day it is very pleasant. The home is within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants, markets and shopping. We have spent time in Cape May for many years and are now making wonderful memories there with our grandchildren. Don and Joanne (owners) are a delight to work with.

Terrific Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 2 children) rented this house for our week in Cape May and it couldn't have been any better. The house is very well maintained, is very well stocked (including bug spray and binoculars), and it's in a great location. Convenient walking distance to the beach and to the downtown mall and there are some very good restaurants (Panico, Sapore) and shops (cheese shop, market, meat market) all within walking distance. Willow Creek winery is close by too. Joanne and Don are very pleasant, easy to work with and very gracious (thanks for champagne). This house is roomy, comfortable, and has everything you would want in a beach house. We can't wait to come back.

No hassles here.....

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my daughter's Coast Guard basic training graduation. The house was great and had everything we needed for our nine guests. It is a short walk to shopping, dining, and the beach area and a short drive to the the Coast Guard base. The wrap around front porch is fantastic. Best of all were the owners. They were very flexible and patient with us throughout the booking process. They kept in communication with us in case we might have to change our arrival date. I can't say enough about their hospitality and good nature. They even left a bottle of champagne to congratulate my daughter on her graduation(thank you Don & Joanne). I would certainly contact the Harbisons if we visit the area again.

Even Better Than Anticipated

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a vacation at the Shore. We were a family with four adult children. There is room for everyone to spread out. The front porch is perfect for gathering for cocktails and the backyard patio is perfect for dining outdoors. There is a large, very well appointed kitchen, fully equipped pantry, gas grill, and a large dining room table for meals and card games. The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable. There is a nice comfortable room to watch tv, and an even larger living room for reading and relaxing.

The location is as perfect as the house. Situated on a quiet, quaint street, the house is a short walk or bike ride to all the restaurants and shops in Cape May. We rented bikes nearby and used them everyday to go to the beach.

We loved everything about Seashells and hope to visit again!
