About Elizabeth O'Donnell

My family and I purchased this property 16 years ago when our son was a year old. We fell in love with the quaint ranch located only one mile form the beach on a quiet road with a farm down the street and great neighbors next door. My daughter joined our family two years later and we all spent the summer in Cape May enjoying the beaches and making great friends. Our children have made year round connections with local friends and I have become friends with year round local families. We love the beaches, restaurants and have created lasting memories. We live in Lambertville NJ a lovely river town, Cape May has reminded us of our home town with its antique shops and local fine dining.

Why Elizabeth O'Donnell chose West Cape May

We fell in love with Cape May on our first visit in 1990 and decided we would want to return many times over, we began looking for homes the following year and found Stimpson Lane, I knew it was the house for us immediately, although we did look at many other properties.

What makes this house unique

The property has a large private backyard and the view from the living room looks out upon a field across the street. It is a residential neighborhood with a very rural feel to it. The house is cozy and feels like home to me. I love reading in the living room in the early morning and I love sitting on the back deck with my morning coffee.

Great location and rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and it was great! The location was central to so many activities and if we had to drive anywhere, our destination was only a few minutes away. Elizabeth was a breeze to work with and messaged/texted me back within minutes if I had any questions. I would definitely consider renting from her again.

Cute home

  • 4 of 5

Cute and charming. We forgot there are NO linens so ran out and bought some. Pillows need opdating and allergy covers on mattresses . You cannot walk to beach from this location. Big yard for kids to play in.

Good location, lacks some amenities

  • 3 of 5

The layout of the space is nice, but the house is a bit limited for a party of 6 during a 5-day stay given the single tiny bathroom and lack of dishwasher and laundry machines. But it has all the basics (outdoor shower and patio were helpful) and we made do and appreciated the close access to the beach. The only other con was that the air conditioning system has a high pitched drone that is particularly noticeable in the master bedroom that kept one of us up at night. Within walking distance to the farm stand and the great farmer's market on Tues nights.

Perfect setup and location for family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location very close to the beach and attractions but far enough away for peace and quiet. Great amenities for cooking and staying with a family.

House size and yard nice, could have been cleaner

  • 3 of 5

Upon arriving at house found no paper towels, no bathroom tissue, no garbage bags, all of which description said were included. Phone call to owner fixed problem. By that evening all above were dropped off at house. House however, was not clean. I cleaned the frig, toaster oven, counter tops before using. Space wise the house was nice. Plenty big enough for four of us. In my opinion, the house needs to be checked and cleaned after one client leaves and the next group comes in. It didn't seem like this happened before we got there. All the other homes I have stayed in through Home Away have definitely been cleaned and supplied before I arrived. I vacuumed all roooms, wet mopped kitchen floor, wiped down frig and counter tops and sink before I left so next renter would hopefully be all set.
