Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Historic District - Lafayette Suite - Upstairs

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 Easily (more with blow-ups provided)

The Lafayette Suite upstairs unit is very spacious and immaculate, with a large eat-in, full size, fully stocked kitchen, large living room with a pull-out queen sleeper sofa, and a bright and sunny bedroom with a queen size brass bed. There are also blow-up beds if required. There are two TV’s, a washer, a DVD player and free, hi-speed wireless Internet.

Our property is only 2 blocks from the Washington Street Mall and 1 1/2 blocks from the Acme food market. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach, or a 2 minute bike ride. There is seating out back to enjoy the warm Cape May evenings after a full day at the beach, and also an outside shower and a gas barbecue shared with our guests.

We're across the street from the Cape May Community School athletic grounds, featuring a playground, a baseball field, a basketball court and a tennis court, and all are free! It's peaceful, very clean and quiet!

We also have another vacation rental with a similar floor plan, that one is the downstairs unit of this 2-Family home. That VRBO property number is 654034. That unit has a front porch with seating for 6 to watch the world go by! It also has a washer and dryer. Same 3 night minimum in Fall/Winter.

You also have the option of renting both units in the Summer at a reduced rate of $1100.00 per unit, giving you the entire beach home, 2 Br's, 2 Baths, sleeping up to 6 easily, or more than 6 utilizing the blow-up beds that are provided. Perfect for a large family, or two families who want to vacation together in Cape May but still have the privacy of two separate sleeping accommodations. An entire beach house for only $2200.00 per week!

Thank you for considering our home for your next vacation. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you this Summer in Cape May. Safe travels!

Note on 3/18/2016: VRBO just started charging all RENTERS a fee to book online, something that they NEVER did before, that is OUTRAGEOUS, since we, as OWNERS, already pay them a substantial fee to advertise on their site.. If you are interested in our property after you read our property information, please contact me on the site and we can get around that fee. Again, outrageous and GREEDY by them, but know that you don't have to pay it.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Rick and Mary's house for a family vacation to Cape May. We just love cape may and have been to this wonderful beach town two other times before, staying at a hotel closer to the lighthouse. This trip, we had our one year old daughter with us, so it was important to us to have a kitchen and a little more space. Rick and Mary's place was perfect. The highlight of this property is twofold: one Rick and Mary could not be nicer. They are exceptionally friendly and kind. Rick also was available to us throughout our stay, and when a light burnt out in the kitchen he was there within hours to fix it. We so appreciated this. Secondly, the houses location is less than a five minute walk to the downtown Washington mall, and a local supermarket, and less than a half mile from the beaches. So, we walked everywhere! We recommend this property to others looking to visit cape may and take advantage of all it has to offer!

Flawless, affordable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Stayed two nights on a last minute booking. Rick and Mary were friendly hosts, greeting us right on time.

We had three people -- two on a queen size bed and a blow-up single mattress. (We didn't utilize the pull-out queen couch.) Everything is ultra clean and works just fine, and the kitchen is well appointed with two toasters, coffee maker, etc. The place is less than a half mile from the beach and just about 4 blocks from Cape May's famous walking mall.

For the price in Cape May, this home is a real find. It's not on the beach, nor is it a block from a beach, but the price not only reflects this -- it's a bargain by costly Cape May standards.
