Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 12- this INCLUDES children

This lovely 5 bedroom, four and a half bath home is located only two blocks from the ocean in Historic Cape May. This impeccably maintained property was built in 2005, and features a great room with 20 ft ceiling and fireplace. A very large kitchen opens into the" Great Room" allowing for easy socializing in an open setting. The kitchen/dining areas have large sliders that open onto the back deck with additional tables for eating and enjoying the private back yard. The Master suite is equipped with a Jacuzzi tub and separate walk in shower.There is a back deck that faces south so it has sun all day. It runs the length of the porch with lots of seating and 2 umbrella/tables to allow any meal to be enjoyed out of doors. There is a 5 person hot tub on a step down landing attached to this deck. The front of the house also has a large porch that is a quiet place to go in late afternoon to enjoy the late day sunshine. The back yard is completely fenced in and surrounded by hedges that give you complete privacy on all sides. It is child proof with the fence. The back yard has many natural flower beds and raised bed vegetable gardens. Bird houses and bird baths attract nesting birds and other visiting species. We regularly see cardinals, hummingbirds and a resident hawk.

Cape May is America's first seaside resort, and is a truly unique place for a family beach vacation. Beaches are readily accessible and Cape May is a major flyway stop over point and one of the most popular bird watching locations on the east coast. There are a large number of first rate restaurants that offer you a wide choice of locations and atmospheres. There are live stage performances all summer at the Cape May Stage Theater as well as live concerts in Convention Hall and the Rotary bandstand in the park behind the Walking Mall.

About Bill or Lois Dudley

Bill and I and our family have enjoyed all that Cape May has to offer for 40 plus years. Our present home, which replaced the small cottage that we summered in for thirty of those years, was built in 2005 and is our year round home. My passions are gardening and nature watching. Our back yard provides me with endless hours of bird and butterfly watching, along with using my green thumb with potted flowers on our deck, planted flowers in our gardens and vegetable gardening in our raised beds. Bill is an avid salt water fisherman and club tennis player. We both enjoy biking around Cape May and daily walks through the neighborhoods or down the promenade. We both retired in Dec of 2013.

Bill or Lois Dudley purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill or Lois Dudley chose South NJ Shore

This house is our home, so you will enjoy the comforts and personal touches like those of a cozy B & B. Books, magazines and vegetables in the garden are yours to enjoy as are the pantry and condiments you'll find in the well stocked kitchen.

Our home is situated less than a mile from the hustle and bustle of the walking mall on a tree lined street two blocks from the beach. Children and adults will find bike riding a safer pastime on this north/east side of town. Our streets are wider, with less traffic than in town. Parking is never a problem in front of our house even on the busiest weekends. Yet, the center of town is just a short walk , bike ride or run away. You will also find our hot tub is a comforting option after a day on the beach or a cool evening.

If birds and butterflies are of interest to you, the garden will be a delight. Much of the backyard is planted with native pollinators in mind, so enjoy the hummingbirds, gold finches, and monarchs that frequent our yard.

Towels and bedding are also provided for your personal use which makes your prep time in packing less cumbersome!

Our home has a lovely porch in the front and larger deck in back with ample seating for leisure coffee drinking and reading. Sun or shade is available all day long.

Cape May offers it all: historic homes, themed weekends, movies on the beach, carriage rides and tours, live theater and weekly concerts, fishing, bird watching, and wonderful restaurants. But most of all, Cape May is a town small enough to make a family vacation an experience to embrace, yet large enough to give you some more sophisticated options like live theater and concerts on a par with Philadelphia.

What makes this house unique

Cape May is an amazingly unique town. It is a beach resort, but very quaint. The beaches are pristine and easily accessible.There are no fast food restaurants within this Victorian area city. There is one WaWa 10 blocks from our house for 24 hour groceries. It has fantastic restaurants as well as side walk cafes. Walking and biking are popular ways of getting around the town. It is a very safe place for children to ride bikes or walk to the beach. The beaches are well protected by experienced lifeguards 7 days a week, The city has "quiet" ordinances in place to assure residents and vacationing guests, peaceful evenings to enjoy their homes. Our home is on a quiet residential street, about 10 blocks from the center city walking mall and business district.

Our house was selected as the Garden Yard of August 2016, by the city of Cape May Garden Club. This election is only possible every 5 years.

Beautiful Home - - Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! The beach is only 2 blocks away. Washington Street mall is a 20-minute walk or 5-minute bike ride along the boardwalk or beautiful neighborhood streets. Plenty of parking. The house has a lovely, open layout and is perfect for a relaxing get away. The interior is decorated in calming blues and yellows with a ton of windows letting in natural light. Our favorite place to hang out was on the back porch to enjoy the ocean breeze and lovely garden. We grilled out on the deck most nights. Kitchen is huge (two dishwashers!) Entire house was spotlessly clean upon arrival. House is great for a large family. Very kid-friendly. We will rent again!

Cape May is on the National Historic registrar for it's unique Victorian Architecture and large number of B & B's. There are no fast food restaurants to be found in Cape May. However there are numerous family owned restaurants serving breakfast, lunch or dinner in every price range. Many offer great ocean views. The Lobster House on Schelengers Landing is always ranked nationally in the top 1% for fresh seafood and spectacular wharf dining next to it's fleet of fishing boats. The Cape May light house at Cape May Point is visible from the "Cove" at the southern end of Beach Drive where folks gather nightly to view the spectacular sunsets over the Delaware Bay.
