"I thoroughly enjoyed my long weekend stay, which I spent with friends wandering up and down the shore at the end of the block, enjoying all manner of sea life from shells to various critters that wash up on the sand. One night we bought fresh seafood from the local market and grilled up a veritable feast that surely tasted so delicious partly for being consumed in beach air. The nearby tourist heart of Cape May is truly breathtaking with its endless streets of picturesque Victorians. I spent a great afternoon there poking around after two of us drove in. Back home, I found the house to be perfect for catching up with friends in an intimate setting, or meeting new ones. In our case, we had friends arrive from Europe, which enlarged our group to seven a day after we arrived. All of us slept comfortably in the three bedrooms. On the last night, I slept on the pullout bed in the living room, expecting the worst (I have a particular dislike for sofa sleepers, given that they tend to give me a bad back by morning), but I was really surprised. This one is very comfortable. I slept quite well. Inside the house is equipped with everything you need, from laundry to linens and kitchen gadgets. Outside, the wraparound porch affords a variety of spots for enjoying meals al fresco or just bird-watching in the estuary directly across the street. The most unique advantage to this house is its location right on the estuary, just steps from the bay. Even if you didn't go outside at all, you could hunker down in the living room with a book, or at the kitchen table with coffee, and watch all manner of birds who use Cape May as a stopping over spot during their travels between the arctic and South America. It's great to live among the birds and sea creatures for a while! I highly recommend!"
