About Owner/Property Manager, Kathi Blackwel

I grew up on the Mainland in New Jersey and the Jersey shore has always been a favorite destination.

Owner/Property Manager, Kathi Blackwel purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner/Property Manager, Kathi Blackwel chose Strathmere

Stratmere is a quiet, quaint environment, with just enough to do when you feel like doing. I spent some summer weeks as a renter in Strathmere and when my job moved me chose to live in Strathmere year round. I have been here since 2005 and this is the fourth summer my husband and I are renting our home. We like that we are so close to the restaurants in Strathmere that you can walk. Sea Isle City with more nightlife and a Boardwalk is a jitney ride away. Car ride to Atlantic City for the gamblers or to shop at the outlets, watch a show. There are a multitude of golf courses, antiquing, water sports, boats for rents, etc in the area.

What makes this house unique

Our home is geared to relaxation. The front screened porch is the summer focal point of our home. It's where everyone hangs out. The back porch is great in the afternoon if you want the cool shade and the ocean breeze. The front porch is sunny in the afternoon. Time for a cool drink and take in the bay breezes. You can do as much or as little as you like. Bars and restaurants all within walking distance. LaFontana or Mildred's being our favorites. You can sit on the porch and have pizza delivered just as easily.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Kathi and Ed's home. The place had everything we needed to cook dinner for our family. We also loved the front porch and sat out there every evening to enjoy the sunset and relax after a long day on the beach. Just enough space for our family - thanks again for an awesome week.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful and provided everything we needed to be comfortable. Our two children are still asking to go back to our “vacation house” as they miss it so much! The décor and layout of the home was simply lovely. The upstairs master suite was very unique with a large living space, spacious bedroom with a unique shower/water closet inside the bedroom – very cool design! The natural light was simply amazing. The four outdoor decks/porches for morning coffee and a good book or evening glass of wine enjoying the bay sunset. The house was well equipped with two t.v.’s and wifi connection but we were really too busy relaxing or enjoying Strathmere to stay connected which made for the best vacation. The location was great as well. Right across from the bay and a quick walk to the beach and the town pancake house and restaurants. The owners provided the beach buggy and chairs so that was perfect too! They also provided two bikes for our use as well. We would highly recommend this home to anyone and can’t wait to return next year!

Charming cottage with bay view sunsets

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from Ed and Kathy's beach cottage.... it was everything we wanted and more... perfect space for three adults (my wife and I, my mother in law) and our son. The pictures do not do the house justice!! The upstairs is much bigger area and bedrooms are all a nice size. There is outside space with three decks and outside patio/ table ( which was so important to us) and enough space for us to fan out if we wanted. The screened porch was so relaxed for reading and coffee. The walk to the beach is two (very short) blocks and two to Twisties ( one of our fav beachside bars). Ed was responsive and wonderful with questions. We loved the character and charm this house had! Thank you !!

This house is really welcoming and comfortable. The location offers a great view and a very short walk to the beach and all restaurants. Can't say enough great things about our experience in Strathmere.
