Why Mary Beth chose Historic District

We fulfilled a lifelong dream by purchasing this 2013 renovated house in 2014. Our family loves to be able to park our cars in the driveway and not touch them until we leave (or go to the Lobster House). We love walking to town, restaurants, the beach or bars and being in the center of everything Cape May has to offer. While we love being active in town, we also appreciate just sitting on the front porch reading or watching the horse and buggies pass by with the ceiling fans on. Inside the house we all enjoy our private suites and then gathering in the common areas - the large living room and gourmet kitchen. The chef's kitchen is where we make our family meals and hang out around the island having snacks.

The best of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect intersection of old Victoriana outside with updated, modern comforts inside. The location is excellent as well, being steps to both the beach and the Washington Street mall. The property was perfect for a multi-generational vacation! There was room and accommodations for everyone. We loved it!

Location, layout, and landlords - a winning combination!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 13, ranging in age from 1 to 80+, rate this as our best Cape May rental ever . .. and that includes our stay in The Abbey. The location is fantastic - one block to beach and one block to the heart of downtown. Restaurants, grocery and liquor stores, retail shops, bars and clubs, etc. are all a very short walk, so you can leave your cars (up to 5) parked in the driveway and permitted area and stroll to all locations. (And if a restaurant is a bit farther, you can take advantage of the Free Ride golf carts.

The layout of this home is unusual for a Victorian, but our family found it a welcome change. The first floor layout is wide open with two large living rooms set behind a wonderful front porch and a very state of the art kitchen - with two dishwashers, a wonderful island, a wine fridge, a modern and very large refrigerator, and every up to date appliance you can imagine. The landlords leave tons of open pantry shelves for food, which is astonishing, given the number of dishes, pots, serving ware, etc., they supply. (Another very nice aspect of this home is what they supply to their vacation renters - from paper towels to toilet paper to garbage bags, to all washing and cleaning supplies to kitchen wraps to spices, all you need to do is bring the food and drink of your choosing.) The dining room seated our whole group with ease.

In terms of sleeping arrangements, the first floor includes an en suite bath in a queen bedroom. The second floor includes a huge king room with an equally huge en suite bath, and the two other second floor queen bedrooms each have bathrooms en suite, and one has an interior room with a bunk bed while the other has an additional space with a trundle bed. The third floor, which has a large shared bath, includes a very large king bedroom and another room with 4 twin beds. That floor also includes a small kitchen.

The landlord was attentive before our stay and responsive during our stay with any questions. They truly take great pride in their property, which is spotless and freshly-painted. In fact, they were so attentive that they noticed the third floor twin bed room seemed a bit warm during the changeover. While we noticed that the first night, before we could even make them aware of that, they contacted us to say they were going to send a contractor over to add a window air conditioner for that room. The air conditioning in the entire house was excellent, and we had a very hot and humid week.

It was an amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we were given the tour of the house. It looked exactly like the pictures on the website. The kitchen was state of the art. The bathrooms were beautiful. The beds were so comfortable. The light colors make the house appear larger than it already is. We loved the house! It felt like home.

This is a beautiful Victorian home with a modern, spacious interior. Plenty of comfortable sleeping areas and each bedroom has a full bath! Truly located right in the heart of Cape May so you can easily take advantage of the beach, shopping, restaurants and tours which is key if you are there just for a long weekend like we were.. We rented bikes and walked all weekend: the cars never left the driveway! Very impressed we will be back!!!

thought I would add my review in addition to my husbands. I didnt see his but we all thought great!!

  • 5 of 5

The four grandchildren and their parents, and us the grandparents all had a wonderful time.

In addition to the great house we were so lucky with the weather. Many of us even went swimming in the ocean!

The house is lovely and there was room for us to all hang out together or for people to find a place to peace and quiet. We ate all our meals at the house and there was everything we needed.

Extremely well laid out property that is clean, well equipped and inviting with lots of room. It is close to the beach and downtown mall as well as restaurants and Congress Hotel. The kitchen has everything one needs. WE can't think of anything missing.
