Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 15)

17 Jefferson St.: This beautiful 6 Bedroom and 2.5+ Bathroom, Victorian era home is just 4 houses from Cape May’s finest family beach and a short walk to its best shops and restaurants. When not at the beach, you will be enjoying the home’s large porch with its seven rockers, full hammock, and big views of the ocean. The house sleeps up to 15 and has off-street parking for 4 cars.

We bought the house in Spring 2010 and have invested heavily in renovations and new furniture to make this a superb rental - over $300,000 to date. Virtually every area of the house has been renewed, inside and out. Despite all the changes, we've tried to keep the 1901 look and feel of the house. The improvements include A/C and heating throughout, completely new kitchen (quality appliances) and master bath, new outside shower, all new beds and mattresses (replaced double beds with Kings and Queens), new high-end furniture in the living and dining rooms, new flat screen TV and blu-ray DVD, fresh painting and wallpapering throughout, etc.

We try and make the house as comfortable for our guest as possible. The kitchen is well stocked. There is wifi and a premium cable package. We keep beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys for all to use.

About Blair Pomeroy

We bought the house while living in Geneva, Switzerland, so you will notice little Swiss/French things throughout the house. We now live in Blair's hometown of Pittsburgh, so our kids can be near family (it's also a great city).

Blair Pomeroy purchased this house in 2010

Why Blair Pomeroy chose Cape May

Just a great location seconds from the beach and an easy walk into town. Guests love the front porch with its ocean views and breezes. It's a big one! Lots of free parking too.

A real winner, walking distance to town and a stone's throw to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house, the owner is super responsive to anything that may arise and has taken such good care of this jem. Myself and 9 other women have been coming here for 4 years now and every year gets better. This year there was fresh paint and new kitchen aid appliances in the kitchen. He doesn't cut corners and the house is exactly as discribed. The beds are super comfy as is the living room furniture but you'd probably find your favorite place to be the front porch, rocking in a rocking chair and taking in the ocean breeze. Thank you Blair for so many great memories over the years!

The perfect reunion site

  • 5 of 5

Six high school classmates, turning 70 this year, spent a week at this beautiful property. The beach, shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance, allowing every one to do their thing. Not one complaint about the house except that there is not a powder room on the main floor, but the exercise probably did us good.

All of us agreed that, as long as everyone can manage the stairs, we'd like to come back. I think that says it all! Thank you, Blair and Barbara. You thought of everything. We weren't lacking a thing!

Summer Renter

  • 5 of 5

After we lost our beloved Cape May summer house 7 years ago, my family never thought we could find a replacement to our cottage we had enjoyed for over 50 years. Well, we have! 17 Jefferson is our new Summer getaway that we feel so beyond fortunate to have found. The bedrooms are gorgeous, the dining room and porch are the ideal gathering points, and....the proximity to the gorgeous Cape May Beach a significant advantage. The owner is terrific and he run a beautiful rental! WE LOVE IT SO MUCH!

A Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we rented a house in Cape May and we couldn't have picked a better location! Just a half block from the beach and a short walk to the Washington Street mall and all the points of interest in Cape May. The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything needed for a stay at the beach, I highly recommend it.

Very kid friendly house. Well supplied kitchen. Well stocked with beach toys, chairs and umbrella. Easy to walk to everything in town. Blair is a pleasure to work with. Property manager is very responsive to the smallest request. Would definitely stay again.
