About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 Easily, Immaculate!

Stay this Summer in the very heart of Cape May, in this spacious, affordable, immaculate one bedroom apartment. The Lafayette Suite is conveniently located near Cape May's charming downtown area, with its many shops and restaurants and the Washington Street Mall.

The Lafayette Suite upstairs unit is very spacious, 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 available if required.

Also included is the use of two beach passes, two beach chairs and a beach umbrella. There's a washer, TV, DVD player and free, hi-speed wireless Internet. There is also an outside shower and a gas barbecue grill shared with our guests. Private, off-street parking is also included.

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. It's peaceful, very VERY clean, and quiet!

(The downstairs of this duplex home is also available for rent, search VRBO #654034. The layout is similar, and renting both units gives you the option of an entire house for less than the price that many single condos demand this close to downtown! Ideal for two families who want to vacation together but still have the privacy of separate quarters).

Thank you for considering our home for your next vacation. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you this Summer in Cape May, and we know you will LOVE the accommodations! Safe travels!

Great location, Friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

If you don't addict to fancy apartment, definitely try this. Old fashion but clean and convenient. Very very friendly and always available owner Rick. Only 2 blocks to ACME supermarket and Washington Street Mall. Beach Aveune is not far as well. Full equipped kitchen,Which is a good option if you don't want to always eat out. We stay there for a week, rent bikes to go everywhere ( bike rental is close only 1.5 blocks away). Sometimes I bought uncooked seafoods from the Lobster House and cooked in the kitchen, which could at least cutoff half price compared to eat out. Simply put, we had a great week.

Owner's Response: Mary and I take great pride in our home, and in making our guests our number one priority during their vacations. We truly appreciated you staying with us. As we've heard from you, and many of our guests, the apartment location is so very close to all that Cape May has to offer. The bikes really eliminate the need to get in the car at all, since all of the city's attractions are only a few minutes of pedaling away, including a 2 minute ride to the Washington Mall, or the beach. We're glad you had a great week, we surely enjoyed having you! Rick & Mary Hoff

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.
