Overview

About the property

Enjoy a weekly or bi-weekly rental in this 2nd and 3rd floor apartment - one week is not enough! September and October are beautiful times to be in Cape May. Please see our calendar for the remaining open weeks in the 2017 season.

We are now taking bookings for the 2018 season. Reserve your vacation now.

Our house is an easy walk to the beach, and you may stroll down to the boardwalk or Washington Street Mall.

Cape May is an ideal place to bicycle. Bring yours and ride to Sunset Beach or about town. Bird watch at Cape May Point State Park, a birder's paradise any time of the year.

Our house was built in the Frog Hollow neighborhood of Cape May by Jeremiah Mecray in 1907 and has been owned by us since 1968. Recent upgrades include AC/heat units, freshly painted rooms and exterior, new windows, and rebuilt outside shower.

This restful, comfortable apartment has four bedrooms, two on the 2nd floor and two on the 3rd floor that sleep up to eight guests, two full baths, complete kitchen/dining room, living room with flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, cable, and free WiFi. A charcoal grill is available to use in the yard. We have clotheslines to hang your beach towels and parking in the driveway or free parking on the street. Entrance to the apartment is by a private side stairway.

Our family has been sharing the Cape May Vacation House with rental guests for 49 years and every effort has been made towards our guests' comfort.

Why Weston Wardell chose Cape May

We purchased this property to allow our family to come and vacation in Cape May. Over the years family and friends have gathered to enjoy visiting with each other in beautiful Cape May.

We have discovered some of the history of the house. The house was built by Jeremiah E. and Rachel Mecray in 1907. Jeremiah owned and sub-divided the entire block which is bordered by Benton Avenue, Franklin Street, Sewell Avenue and Jefferson Street.

The entire parcel of land cost $4250 in the early 1900s! This house seems to be one of the first that was built on the block. As you travel around the block you may notice several that have a similar style of architecture.

Comfortable apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, three short blocks from the beach, the apartment is an easy walk to everywhere in Cape May. Everything was clean and fresh and the owners were very helpful and responsive. This is our fifth vacation in Cape May although we have never rented any of the other places we stayed a second time. For the first time, we plan to rent this apartment again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. We had a wonderful vacation and September is a great month to visit Cape May.

Very cozy and practical

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this place but our 3rd vacation to Cape May. We were 2 couples with each 2 kids (total of 8). The appartment was perfect for us. Each family had it's own bathroom. We were very satisfied with everything in place. We would definitively return.
