About Sean & Stacey Lacey

We live in Pennsylvania, but have been vacationing in Cape May for 20 years. We have family living in the area, so we have frequented Cape May often over the years.

Sean & Stacey Lacey purchased this house in 2013

Why Sean & Stacey Lacey chose Historic District

We love this home for its versatility and accommodations. It is open, yet feels very homey, and everyone has plenty of space. We love the convenience of having everything so close. We travel everywhere either by foot or by bike. Prior to owning this home, we stayed in various hotels/B&Bs usually in the heart of Cape May and often directly on the beach. We found it to be noisy in the evenings with those staying up late coming home from the bars and early mornings with delivery trucks. We feel this home is a quiet retreat, yet close to anything you would need!

What makes this house unique

We love the back yard, which is a hot commodity in Cape May. There is more than enough parking, which wasn't present with other properties we considered. We love the quiet and the sounds of the ocean as we wind down at the end of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in cape may. The house is set up so everyone in our party had their own space and the common area on the first floor was spacious and not crowded. The location is ideal as it is close to the mall and to restaurants. The beach is a short walk or quick bike ride. Can also drive and there are several off street spots off beach ave that are not metered if desired.

Wonderful 'off-season' choice

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 16 (!) held our annual New Years gathering in this lovely home, and it has jumped to the top of our list of favorite houses for an 'off-season' gathering in Cape May (maybe I should say non-summer, as there are still many businesses open, even in December). Open first-floor layout (kitchen, dining, living) with long table allowed cooking and socializing and game playing and just hanging out. Bedrooms with pull out trundles accommodated us all. Kitchen had all the cooking items we needed, including an electric steamer which we used to heat up tamales! We had no trouble with the coffee maker (filter bucket swings out forward) and made use of it multiple times daily.

Great location - quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My cousins and our families had a mini family reunion in Cape May (first time for all of us). The house was spacious enough for 7 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 kids under the age of 7! Sunroom in the back was a great place to throw the kids and all their toys! Central location to the beach and Cape May Downtown (the shopping area off of Washington Street) - it was an easy and safe walk for everyone! I'm only rating a 4 because there were massive amounts of mosquitoes in the back so we weren't able to enjoy the backyard in the evenings which we were looking forward to doing. Even with bug spray and citronella candles, we weren't able to keep those buggers away! Overall, great location and place to stay!

We loved the location. The house was spacious and well equipped...You thought of everything

to make our family vacation one to remember! One suggestion to improve the comfort for our family that includes 8 adults is to change the one full bed to a queen size bed, otherwise perfect.

We had a good time. House was very accommodating to our group. Kitchen and porch and living room.

  • 4 of 5

We closed off the porch at night so we could sleep and young people could stay up and enjoy. Mosquitoes were bad in back yard. We've had too much rain at night. House was great. Never could figure out how to use the coffee part and a late comer brought one from home. Left a 4 cup pot there. Loved the house and furniture.

Beautiful and functional home close to everything in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

We stayed and Sean and Stacey's home for a girls weekend in Cape May. The house was immaculate, and we really enjoyed the large dining room table for all of us to eat breakfast at together. There were plenty of bedrooms and beds to accommodate our entire group, as well as plenty of large bathrooms! We were very close to both the beach and downtown Cape May. Due to the weather, we used cab companies to get around, but we could have walked downtown if the weather was nicer. This house was a great place to stay in Cape May, and I would definitely stay there again.
