Charming beach house steps from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from awesome week at this house! It's just a few houses away from beach access and down the street from The Red Store. The house was recently renovated and the owners did a really fantastic job. It felt beachy but modern. All the bathrooms all have gorgeous tile. There is some kind of engineered wood flooring throughout which was easy to clean and felt really good underfoot. We really enjoyed hanging out on the upper patio at night, you can hear the waves crashing on the shore. It was very well appointed and had everything we needed for a week at the beach.

My only suggestions would be to add on to the outdoor shower so there is a place to hang a towel.

Cape May Point is a great little beach town. It's quiet and the beaches were not very crowed, even 4th of July week. Hope to stay here again!

Beautiful, fun, relaxing, and easy

  • 5 of 5

This house is decorated very cool. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed spending time on the front deck. The weather was great and we waked to the beach every day - one day all the way to town. Spring break was a great time for the kids to play in the yard and we rode bikes quite a bit. Highly recommend, and the owner was very friendly and responsive.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

Truly lovely beach house in a quiet neighborhood. After vacationing in downtown Cape May for almost 20 years, this was our first trip to the Point. We loved it, and I can't see going back to downtown.

The house itself was lovely. Perfectly updated and beachy. All the bedrooms are oversized. Large deck. The public spaces (kitchen - living room - dining room) are a bit small, but if you're traveling with kids, they'll have lots of room to play downstairs in the bedrooms and in the yard. When the weather is nice, the deck more than doubles the hang-out space. We were a party of five, myself, my husband, two teenagers and my mom. The property worked beautifully for all.

One block to the beach. Walk-able to the lighthouse and state park. October was fantastic for naturalists. All kinds of birds migrate and stop at the Point, as do Monarch butterflies. The walking trails through the park are level, mostly decked, and vary in length for all abilities. Gorgeous views. This was a highlight.

The owner was perfectly responsive and a joy to deal with. Highly recommend. We will stay here again.

Exactly what we were hoping for

  • 5 of 5

Two of my close friends are birders, and the three of us stayed at Colleen's house for five days in early October. Her house is exactly as shown on her VRBO page, and we had a wonderful time.

We chose Colleen's house because of its proximity to the Audubon center, the bird sanctuary and the state park; and because it had pretty much everything we were looking for.

The house was spotless, the rooms thoughtfully decorated, the beds comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed, and the second-floor common areas (deck, sitting area, kitchen area) inviting and pleasant.

My friends are amazing cooks, but we had dinner each night at the restaurants that Colleen had recommended; and at each place we had excellent meals.

The beach was literally steps away from the house, and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. An added plus was stargazing at night -- very little ambient light.

Colleen was exceptionally responsive to any questions we had -- she was not in Cape May but we were easily able to reach her through texting or a phone call. She has also provided a binder that explains things that might be confusing -- like how to work the TV or the showers (lovely European showers but with uncommon controls).

Colleen's house was a wonderful 'home away from home,' and it was really central to the great time we had in Cape May Point. We hope to return!

Wonderful beach house - immaculate & tasteful

  • 5 of 5

This review is quite late to post, we rented over Labor Day weekend 2013. Colleen was wonderful in accommodating a last minute request. The house was steps from the beach with beautiful second floor porch. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the place was just absolutely lovely! Spacious enough to accommodate 8 adults visiting. We enjoyed taking the bikes out to the town and the light house. Beautiful sunsets. Couldn't ask for a more peaceful getaway. The pictures don't do it justice.

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and throughly enjoyed the house. The owner, Colleen, was very accommodating and made sure everything was prepared and taken care of for our New Year's stay. The whole interior of the home is beautiful and well kept. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you could imagine to feel at home. As for the location, PERFECT! Hoping to return again soon!! Great stay! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
