About Beth Bradley

We purchased the home in April 2013 from Beth's Aunt Helen who owned the home for 40 years. When the home became too much for her, Helen put it on the market. The thoughts of the home where Beth vacationed her whole life was too upsetting to think of it leaving the family so after some time, Jay & Beth purchased the home.

Since the Spring of 2013, renovations have been underway. A few improvements include: a new roof, secured foundation, central air/heat, new bamboo floors, new half bathroom, improved kitchen, ceiling fans, new furniture, beds, bedding & decor, & flat screen tv/dvd in the family room, queen bedroom, and front bedroom.

Be the first season of renters!!!!

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was great and it was in the perfect location. Short walk to the mall and restaurants. Short walk to beach in the morning. My wife and I parked our car the Saturday we arrived, and didn't move it until we left the following Saturday.

The property owners were great to work with and responded quickly to all of our inquiries. We'll definitely be looking to stay at Aunt Helen's house again in the future.

One of the cutest properties on one of the quietest streets, Aunt Helen's house is a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Cape May with family for 40+ years and this is by far one of our most favorite trips! The house is clean and cozy and the front porch is so perfect! The home owner's are helpful and friendly! Aunt Helen's house is perfectly located to so much of the fun shops, restaurants and entertainment! Our family walked and biked all over town all week. Nice stroll from the house to the beach looking at all of the beautiful homes on Windsor Ave. We will highly recommend this home as a perfect getaway to our friends and family! Thank you again Jay and Beth!!!

Loved our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the beach staying in Aunt Helens house. The home was well kept and child friendly. I was very impressed when I saw the room with twin beds. They had bedrails available if needed and black out curtains! It was perfect for my toddler. The outdoor shower was wonderful for sandy kids and the hose was god send! We spent our evenings on the covered porch. The children loved watching the horses go by each evening. The owner was prompt with responses and made us feel welcomed. If traveling with young children, consider bringing a narrow baby gate for the stairs. The best part was parking the car once and never using it again. There are no spaces but it was not difficult to find parking close by.

Aunt Helen's House was absolutely perfect in every way. My husband and I rented it with my son and daughter-in-law and their two children (ages 2-1/2 and 7 months). It had everything we needed, and was bright and clean. We spent many hours on the front screened in porch, and also in the backyard. The bikes provided were a real plus. The living room/diningroom/kitchen area was perfect for us, and we loved the character and layout. Both bathrooms were clean and pretty. The washer/dryer was nice to have. We had perfect weather every single day we were there, and enjoyed so many activities - biking, walking, the beach, the horse-carriage tour, sunset beach looking for Cape May diamonds, the shopping and down town area and so much more. We all loved it so much, and will definitely go back to this same house again. The location is perfect too. Thank you!!!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, as well as friends with two children, rented this home at the beginning of the Summer. The house was the perfect size for four adults and four children. The house was clean, had all of the amenities we were looking for and was in the perfect location from the Washington Mall and the Beach. On top of it all the owners were great to work with!
