Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Cape May - Cape May Family Great House
House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)
All week long you will be glad you are staying in this awesome house with a large private tree lined corner property.
On your way back from the beach you will be excited to return to the cozy, fun, relaxed and spacious home.
Pick from one of 3 TV areas or the large sitting room adjacent to the dinning room. The kids will be in the GAME ROOM or outside which means you will never hear “we are bored” at this house. In fact to ensure that let the kids bring a friend or bring along another family because this beach home has the space to spread out.
Now the key to another great day and a great fun week is a good nights rest. The beds are quality beds. Best of all…. the beds intended for the adults are king and queen beds, not those tiny “full size beds”.
The children bedrooms have a bunk bed in one and two twins in the other. The result is a great week because everybody gets a good night sleep. We also took the last step and ensured a good night sleep by installing air conditioning in every room in case you are there during one of those hot weeks, which do happen no doubt. Not in this house – you can keep it cool at all times!
One King, 2 Queen beds, 2 twin beds, 1 bunk bed, 1 pull out sofa, 2 other sofa's and two futons give you a total sleeping capacity of 14.
The first floor has a full bath with a shower as well as a powder room with sink and toilet off of the room with a bunk bed. The second floor has a full bath with a tub. There is also a shower in the basement for after cleaning off the sand from the beach. During the off season of 2006/2007 we replaced all the carpeting and put in a new bathroom floor upstairs. In October 2007 we put in a new kitchen floor. In the winter of 2011 we took down the old paneling on the second floor and installed drywall.
Need soda or milk? That’s a short 3-minute walk. Want to forget the cooking and just grab a burger? Walk there too! After dinner spend the evening hours in down town Cape May playing miniature golf, shopping and eating ice cream or stay home and play board games or watch a movie. We even added 20 new games for the summer of 2009 and there are 20 popular movies to pick from also.
We raised 4 kids and rented homes at the shore for years before we set this house up for family fun. We know what it takes to keep the peace and have a good time – this place fits that bill!

About Terry O'Donnell
I grew up in suburban Philly and as a boy always vacationed at 'the shore'. I always loved the Jersey shore. Now as a dad of 4 children I wanted them to experience the shore so in 1998 we started going to Cape May every year. During our 2003 rental stay I found the house of my dreams. It needed a lot of work and all new furniture and it had a basement with great potential for a fun game room. We made all these changes and now offer this as a great place for the fun week at the 'shore'. Better yet it is in Cape May which is the best New Jersey shore town!
Terry O'Donnell purchased this house in 2003
