Recent Stone Harbor reviews

  • Ideal Family Home

    "We loved this house for our Stone Harbor vacation! Our family of five plus grandma fit in four comfortable rooms with plenty of extra space for visiting aunts/uncles/cousins. Best things about this house: the ground floor deck off kitchen is ideal for outdoor gathering in the evenings and dinners. And of course the location! The beach is one easy block and town a short stroll or bike ride. Our kids love climbing up to the cupola to stargaze - or watch a lightening show! Owners are terrific."

  • Perfect nature-loving family retreat on the back bay

    "First of all, it took me a month to write this review because it is hard to describe the joy we continue to feel while staying in this home away from home that is perfectly situated just off the island on the back bay. 5 generations ago, our ancestors were among the first non-native settlers on 7 Mile Island.In fact, my cousin's great Aunt was the first baby born in Avalon. Her name was Avalon Corson Kandle, and her parents won the prize given to parents if the first baby born there--the prize was a free lot. My aunt's father and grandfather built a cottage across the bay on 88th Street in the mid '20s. So, you can understand how much the island means to me and the rest of my family. We have been renting homes on and off the island for decades, and this lovely home is the only one I wish to return to again and again. We also rented it in May of this year and will return next spring. The home is just the right size for a family and its guests. There are three bedrooms that sleep 6 upstairs, and a large dem/media room in the lower level that has a pull out FIFA, another sofa as well as a loveseat.The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the owners plan to remodel it in the near future. The patio area is perfect for barbecuing. They not only have a deck that offers a perfect launching place for kayaks and paddle boards, but they also have an upper deck with plenty of chairs and a table to enjoy the sunsets. There are kayaks that the owners generously provide, including a very comfortable tandem. The deck is great for fishing and the owners also provide crab traps. There is nothing like the calm quiet mornings out on the deck, not to mention the fantastic sunsets! We so appreciate being able to walk from the house to places such as the Wetlands Institute, located just across the street, and to stroll across the bridge into town. No need to search for a parking spot and keep feeding those meters! To readers who are not yet familiar with this wonderful island and surrounding area, some favorite places and activities we have enjoyed over the years include; the award-winning Cape May County Zok up the road in Cape May Court House, the Csoe May-Lewis Ferry, the Sone Harbor Point at Hereford Inlet, the Cape May slight House, the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary, the Stine Harbor Museum, the alpaca farm in North Cspe May, the zlobster House Restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf in Cape May, charter fishing on the Never Enuf out of Avalon at the Avalon Fishing Center."

  • Excellent Location! Bigger Than Expected!

    "My family and I rented this house for a wedding that we were attending in Stone Harbor. First, it was so convenient that we could rent for 4 nights versus a full week. That is very difficult to find!!! The location of this house is perfect! It is in the quiet section of Stone Harbor and just two houses back from the beach!! The beach at 117th Street is very large and not crowded at all! The house itself looks tiny from the outside but is much bigger inside. The main master bedroom was huge . The other four bedrooms, while not large, were more than accommodating. Three of the five bedrooms have AC. On a humid day, it did get a bit stuffy in the house but the breeze from the ocean was more than enough to cool off the rooms. Every room does have some sort of fan so that definitely helps! The bathrooms, while in need of some updating, were big enough to share. There is also a half bath on the bottom floor which is most helpful when coming in off the beach so you do not track sand all over the upstairs. The kitchen is small but well stocked with kitchen equipment and is open to the family dining area and great room. The great room was much larger than it looks in the pictures and sat our families most comfortably. The best part of the house is the huge wrap around deck with ocean views!! There is alot of seating out on the deck and we spent a considerable amount of time out there. It is a great place for morning coffee and an evening cocktail!! There are not many food markets or restaurants in this area of Stone Harbor but the downtown is just a short 5 minute drive away. Mary, the owner, is very responsive via email and the house was clean and neat when we arrived! I would definitely recommend this house for family vacations!"

  • Tremendous

    "The house was exactly what we were hoping for when a group of us randomly decided to rent a house for a week at the shore. The owners (Howard and Jane) were so great; quick to respond to questions and there to meet us to give us the lay of the house and town when we arrived. The house had everything we could want; close to the beach, good size bedrooms, large tables for group dinners both inside and out on the deck, an open kitchen/family room and the pool and spa! Sitting in the pool or spa for hours and having a great laugh became a daily ritual for our crew. We walked into town several nights (roughly a 15 minute walk) for dinner, drinks, ice cream, etc. We hope to be back. Thank you Howard and Jane!"
