Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, outdoor living space, sleeps 6

Let the fun begin here! Come relax, enjoy, dine in, dine out, steps to the beach, steps to all the pleasures of Cape May and the gas lit streets. This cozy and bright cottage will be your home away from home with all the comforts you need. Located 400' feet to the beach and a few short blocks to shopping, restaurants, Victorian Cape May and the Washington Street Mall. This cottage sleeps 6-8 in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home with a 33' covered front porch, a 17' covered rear porch, a large rear yard with a BBQ grill, outside shower, clothes line and bike shed. Bikes are provided, just bring your helmets. Come see the fun you are missing.

This cozy home was redone in 2009 with new furniture, appliances, beds, bedding, carpet, paint, awnings and BBQ grill. This home is so close to the ocean, there are times you can hear the ocean roar while relaxing on the front porch, rear porch or yard. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise from the front porch or stroll 400' to the promenade and watch the sunrise or sunset over the ocean. Both are magnificent. There is also an outside shower and a hose for rinsing off after a relaxing day on the beach.

Cape May is a unique and wonderful seaside resort town with a spectacular beach, fabulous fishing and many outstanding restaurants. Cape May is also known for its historical and colorful Victorian homes and its antique shops. Cape May offers narrated horse drawn carriage rides and open air trolley tours. Seasonal events include Jazz Festivals, Craft Shows, Vineyard Tours, Home Tours, Strawberry Festival, Peach Festival, Lima Bean Festival, Wine Festival, Film Festival, Victorian Fair, Art Shows, Antique Car Shows, Independence Day Parade, Halloween Parade, Christmas Parade and even a Pet Parade.

All are great seaside towns with more activities than you could ever conquer.

About Kevin Soler

Here I am with my wife Deb, she makes sure everything is in its place. Our goal is to make your stay exceptional. Also pictured is one of our boys, Smokey, a poodle/daschund mix. Marco our white toy poodle isn't pictured but he is always with us too. All four of us love walking around Cape May. You may see us on your visit to our fantastic home. We love the beach and the ocean and especially enjoy walking the gas lit streets in the evening. My daughters also have fond memories of the beach, zoo and time spent together in Cape May and in all the nearby seaside communities including Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Sea Isle City, Ocean City and the many towns in between. Our boys want us to make our retreat available to other well behaved boys and girls, both of their world and of ours so come, stay, relax and enjoy our home. We rescued Smokey in March 2011. At the time, Smokey was a 7 month old poodle mix and he has quickly learned where the ice cream and hot dog snacks can be found in Cape May. He and Marco love walking the streets of Cape May and West Cape May, running after bunnies, pretending they can catch one! Come stay and you will see what a wonderful place Cape May and West Cape May are and may God bless and enrich everyone that visits our home.

Kevin Soler purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Kevin Soler chose Cape May

Our home was purchased to be close to the places we love. We hope you will enjoy our home and its wonderful location ideal for creating fun and fond memories. For over 30 years we have been enjoying Cape May and now share our favorite shore resort with our guests at our three Cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

We provide you and your family a wonderful cottage to relax and enjoy Cape May. The front porch furniture is ideal for a good nap or a place to enjoy the strolling Cape May visitors. More privacy is enjoyed on our covered rear porch area. Enjoy our newer vintage beach cruiser bikes for a great ride to Sunset Beach or a casual cruise around town. Head to our wonderful beach with beach chairs that we provide along with an umbrella and beach blankets. This cozy cottage is a wonderful retreat and includes central air/heat, new furniture and appliances, a washer/dryer and dishwasher with laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets provided. We also provide a starter roll of paper towels and toilet paper and a 5 burner propane grill with sear, side burner and spare propane tank so you won't run out of fuel. A rare find is our off street parking and our spacious yard.

Great vacation home and very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home that was only a block from the beach! Kevin was the most responsive owner I have ever worked with. He made sure all of our questions were answered, and supplied information on what the cottage contained, things to do in Cape May, places to eat, etc. He even called to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The outside seating areas and yard were lovely and we used them frequently. There was a hose in the yard to wash sandy things off with. The kitchen had ample dishes, pots, pans, glasses, etc. There were plenty of beach chairs. There were bikes, but we had brought our own. The beach a block away was lovely. Could not ask for anything more. We had a terrific time biking, walking, swimming, and relaxing. We even saw dolphins in the ocean. - Laura and Steve from Pennsylvania

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, confortable, great location. A great owner who takes excellent care of his properties and responds quickly to any need (like when you lose your key on the beach!). This property has been sold (sigh), but we will stay in another Soler home next year.
