Property description

The living space is located on the 2nd floor which has a large family room and kitchen that is fully equipped for eating and cooking. Dishwasher, microwave and coffee pot included.
Wifi Internet and Cable TV included.
To describe the entire house, Harvard Apartments has two Spacious 2 bedroom apartments (Apt #1 and Apt #4) which are located on the first floor and two Spacious 4 bedroom apartments (Apt #2 and Apt #3) which are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, all 4 apartments are available to rent at one location. Each apartment has their own private entrance, private kitchen, living space etc...

There are common areas around the apartment for all of our guests which include a picnic area with picnic tables and gas grill. Outside enclosed shower with hot and cold water. In the back of the house we have a Bike rack, Clothes line along with an enclosed Laundry room with washer and dryer which is complimentary for our weekly guests. A Large front porch with awning that has plenty of seating for our guests who enjoy watching the horse and buggy passing by daily. We also have off street parking available, our driveway can accommodate 1 car per apartment.

When you stay at one of our apartments you can expect to have a clean comfortable apartment with many comforts of home at a very reasonable price. The home is considered a historical home built in 1870 which was originally located on South Lafayette Street (a few streets closer to the beach) it was moved sometime in the early 1900's. The home has many charming features due to its historical nature as well as the décor. The owner is onsite for the Saturday turnover to ensure all of the apartments are in excellent condition for our guests and to greet and show everyone around on their check-in day.

A recent renter, Joe B. and his family who rented our 2 bedroom apartment (Apt #4) in September of 2014...shared this wonderful letter with us that describes our place perfectly.

'Dear Friends,
We are now back from our week long mini-vacation at Harvard House in Cape May and can resume E-mails. We only had the time for a week but it proved to be both relaxing and fun due in part to the place we chose to stay. It is in a peaceful area just two and half blocks from the beach on a very quite road but just a short stroll to the brouhaha of the town: an ideal situation.
This is a late Victorian house, unpretentious but very charming, informally furnished with an eclectic range of pieces crossing many periods with delightful decorative touches.
The words Charming, Friendly, Comfortable and Roomy with an Informal Ambiance and Spotless say it all. A place well worth considering and quite reasonable to boot!
PS: It has full kitchens with all appliances etc, but with so many great seafood restaurants who wants to cook.)'

We appreciated hearing his feedback and so many other kind letters or notes that are usually left on kitchen tables thanking us for a wonderful place to stay.
Which explains why so many families that have made this there beach house for many years. During our summer season our renters mainly consist of families who have children of all ages. It makes a great place for families to come together for reunions to share their vacation with each other. You can rent one apartment that suits your family or even the entire house (all 4 apartments) which can comfortably sleep up to 30 people (4 more with a pull out couch in our 2 bedroom apartments).

In our off season we continue to have many families renting from us which also include Coast Guard Families attending a Coast Guard graduation at the Coast Guard Base or large wedding parties that need additional accommodations. Many local weddings take place right at the beach on Windsor Avenue or at Congress Hall which are just a few short blocks away. We also have had bachelorette parties or just a friends weekend getaway. In the fall and winter season, many of our guests have enjoyed the Winery tasting / tours , the Sherlock Holmes Mystery weekend or best of all, Christmas in Cape May!
