"From the moment we stepped into this home, there was an immediate WOW! We were so impressed with this beautiful Victorian home. The front foyer was adorned with original cherry wood work, a grand staircase and a Victorian stained glass window. Then there was that gourmet kitchen we are still talking about-- complete with high end appliances, a wet bar (including a wine fridge!) and seating for 8 around the granite counter top. Truly there was no amenity left out, including a laundry room and powder room right off the kitchen. The formal dining room was large with seating for 12, and the first floor also boasted of two living room areas complete with flat screen televisions. The second floor had 3 ½ large tastefully decorated bedrooms, two modern baths, and a rear staircase that lead directly to the kitchen for those midnight snacks. The third floor also had two bedrooms and a sitting area in the turret where we could read and take in the town sights. All the rooms had air conditioners and ceiling fans for those hot summer days. Oh, did we mention the cozy front porch where we enjoyed afternoon cocktails while people-watching? But what would a summer vacation be without the beach, dining, shopping, nightlife, or a horse-drawn carriage ride around town?! This home couldn’t have been more perfect for all of the above. The location is right in the heart of Cape May. After spending a day at one of the most pristine beaches New Jersey has to offer (which is only a block away), we were literally steps away from the Washington Street Mall. With quaint shops and plenty of places to eat and relax – we did it all-- from hot dogs and ice cream to fine dining. One evening we decided to whip up a gourmet meal and entertain at home. Fortunately a grocery store was only a few blocks away. Although almost everything was within walking distance, we did venture out a few times in the car. With the 2 off-street parking spaces in the backyard, we never had to worry about parking. That was a big bonus! Nothing could have made our vacation experience at this home any better! We highly recommend this rental!"
