From the street, Beach Plum Cottage looks small and cozy, but step inside and you'll be pleasantly surprised by all the room the house provides all on one floor. Our home is a perfect rental for large families, multi-generaltional groups, as well as several couples. With four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, there's no skimping on facilities. One of the bedrooms also doubles as a den. There are two screen in porches and all the rooms are large enough for your gatherings.
Summer rental season of 2016, our first, was quite successful with every week booked through September with the home receiving the kind of reviews we had hoped for. In addition to superb accommodations, travelers to our home in the quiet residential enclave of the Villas known as "Cape May Beach," three houses (or approximately 350 steps) to a gorgeous beach on the Delaware Bay can expect quick responses to any questions and or issues.
Last year we set-up the home from scratch with all new furnishings - from beds to sofas to coffee mugs to dishes - everything a family needs to unpack and immediately enjoy a great beach vacation.
There are two ensuite master bedrooms with king size beds and dressers. The larger of the two masters includes a Jacuzzi tub. The smaller of the king-size master suites has a disability-style shower with grab bars, a pull down seat, and walk-in shower floor. There is a den off the main entrance that has pocket doors for privacy to convert to a fourth bedroom. In the den is a day bed with a pull out trundle (both twins). Also in the den is a motorized recliner for TV watching. Just steps from that room is a convenient closet for the occupants of the den. There are dresser drawers in that room as well. There are 3 large flat screen "smart TVs" (55", 50" and 43") in the house from which you can sign-in to your Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. accounts. The TVs are located in the living room, den, and larger master. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds and dresser and is just across the hall from the main bath. The living room is cozy and inviting with comfortable furniture arranged for family gatherings or TV watching. Of course, there is high speed WiFi as well as a generous number of cable channels. There is a DVD player in the Den with a supply of DVDs or you can rent your own at the local Acme Market Redbox. There is an assortment of board games and decks of cards in the foyer closet. To save space in your car, we have provided 6, five-position beach chairs, 2 sand chairs, a lounger, two beach umbrellas, a large cooler, and assorted beach toys.
The kitchen has recently been renovated with new granite countertops, tile backsplash, lighting, and deep sink. All the large appliances are newer and stainless steel including a refrigerator with an ice maker. All the small appliances are newer and include a wide array of the necessities and niceties for any style of meal preparation. The kitchen has an enormous dining table to accommodate 8 people. There is another leaf and two more chairs should you have company.
For outdoor enjoyment, Beach Plum Cottage has many great options. You will enter the house through the screened-in front porch with a charming log bench where you can sit to listen to the sound of the surf. Behind the house is a large screened-in porch (with skylights and ceiling fan). It is furnished with an outdoor eating table and chairs on one half with the other half set up with a wicker-look love seat and two chairs. There is a double burner propane grill outside the back porch.
The property has been lovingly landscaped with bird-friendly plants and was designated a "Certified Wildlife Habitat." There are winding paver paths lined with beautiful shrubs, trees, and flowers. Take a beach chair and sit out there to take in the lush atmosphere.
Although there is a garage, at this time it is to be used for storage purposes only. There is parking available in the driveway and there is always street parking available. Other notes: The second story of the house is not furnished, will not be air-conditioned or heated at this time, and holds our personal property in locked rooms. Please do not use the second floor for any reason. There is a laundry room with washer/dryer and cabinets containing extra light bulbs and other miscellaneous items you may used if needed.
This season we have decided to provide linens so you do not have to--these including bed sheets/blankets/and bath towels.
For your convenience, we have a property manager nearby should any problems aris
We believe you will enjoy our new home as much as we do.
