Cape May Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, quiet and tranquil (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Definitely! A cozy, quaint, diamond in the rough cottage located in a quiet fishing village, like stepping back in time to the shore as it used to be, with spectacular, romantic sunsets. Enjoy morning coffee on the back patio while being cooled by the breeze off the water. My yard partially in a wild state borders next to a wildlife refuge, very private and tranquil adorned with natures lush shade trees/shrubs as a cooling backdrop against the hot, and sunny beach. Dine IN or OUT with a charcoal grill near the patio also added a firepit for roasting marshmellows or relaxing by the fire with a drink of choice. For your convience there is an outside shower to RINSE-OFF and cool down from a relaxing day at the beach.

10 min walk to a Dollar Store, 15 min drive, only 5 min. away on Bayshore Rd is Fish and fancy, fresh fish just caught by local fishermen, eat in or take out the prices are great, and the food compares to the LOBSTER HOUSE, Shop-Rite, Acme, McDonalds, 5 min. away is Wing It, Mels, Pizza and many others are conveniently located nearby for last minute odds and ends. Almost forgot.just a short block at the end of my street is The Fishermens's Inn on the Bay, or a few miles away make a left at the WaWa (Fillermill Rd) is Menz Restaurant, and Harpoon Henry's 15 min drive on Beach Ave. Consider some fine dinning in Cape May with reasonable early dinners, fancy beverages $2.00 that will wet your appetite and not 'ouch', your pocket. Try The Cape May Inn with FREE appetizers Mon to Fri, from 1pm to 6pm. Tour Historic Cape May area by trolly. If tired of the beach, shop til you drop along Washington Street Mall (20 min) and many antique shops. Later treat yourself to a fresh seafood dinner caught from the Atlantic's largest fishing ports. If your wishing for Italian, that too.

September is great hear with the Irish Festival it is as busy as 4th of July.

Don't forget to visit World War 11 LOOK-OUT TOWER adjacent to the Lighthouse (20)min drive. Search for Cape May diamonds at Sunset Beach, fun for the kids and adults alike.

NEW FEATURE: MUST RESERVE at time of booking: KAYAKING additional $150/wk or $100/wkends for tons of FUN. Enjoy gentle waves, beach combing, jet sking, surfing, fishing (at high tide, local fishermen say the striper fishing is very good), sailing, whale/dolphin watching or biking along beach-views.

We are approx 100 steps to your very own quasi private beach, and for the walkers..... walk along the beach 45 min to Cape May Beach and Lewis Ferry or 20 min drive. Cape May is great to visit anytime of the year with it's collection of Victorian architecture(especially during Christmas Holidays) with the candlelite tours and trolly rides. Yes, I rent year-round with specials. Just 15 min to the Cape May Lite-house,Cape May Zoo, and Wildwood's famous boardwalk/amusement park. Feel lucky, then do Atlantic City only 40 min. away and hit the Jack pot to take home.

This vacation cottage was orginally owned by my dearest beloved Aunt Sue and Uncle Perry. Every year they invited me for vacation. This was always and still is a cozy and peaceful place to call HOME away from home. The town is an old fishing village and the neighborhood is friendly, pet friendly too. I always looked forward to coming back each year just......... couldn't get enough of the breezy sea air and spectacular sunsets. The yard always reminded me of my very own private sanctuary. it backs up to natural wildlife preservation, and offers shade and serenity. I have lots to do though with the yard and little by little I am planting shrubs and plan to plant a berm of armavitese along the back yard this fall.

Mary Barbera purchased this cottage in 1960

Fortunately, for me this cozy home I enjoyed as a teenager I now enjoy 35 years later. Only walking distance 100 steps to the beach and surf. Now, I am into my golden years enjoying the peacefulness of listening to the seagulls, the sounds of the water while having my morning coffee. I don't mind a glass of wine in the evening taking in the breeze of the water or a short jaunt to the beach to enjoy the magnificent. sunsets.

Our home brings back many memories of my family enjoying good times, great meals and beautiful sunsets. If you want peace and quiest, it is here, but if you want more excitement only a 15 min. drive to all the people, amusements, and nightlife.

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was just what we were looking for. Our family and dogs had a wonderful visit and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect; close to Cape May attractions yet away from the business. The property is accurately described and the owner was extremely responsive.
Thank you for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lea Ann, I hope you and your family can do this again, and if you love the shore in the Summer, it's wonderful in the Fall and Winter with many jazz festivals, and seafood eateries.

Terrific Place / Great, Relaxing Stay / Will be Back!

  • 5 of 5
Mary's place is clean and quiet with a wonderful open livingroom/kitchen. The master bedroom was spacious and comfortable and we spent many nights on the back patio listening to the sounds of the bay, the birds and nature in general. We had never been to the Villas prior and we will be back. It is such a nice departure from the yuppy-ness of Avalon and Stone Harbor -- though they are both beautiful -- I really liked the casual atmosphere, great bike riding and lovely bay. Do you know virtually everyone said "hello" to us in the morning? That is the kind of place this is. Also great for pet owners as many walked their dogs along the bay and on the lovely, winding streets. Thank you Mary, we will be back for sure!

Comfortable and convenient -- an old shore experience

  • 5 of 5
Mary's place is clean and very comfortable. We loved the biking, sunsets and walks on the bay. Had dinner at Jake's which was great. What we really loved was how friendly everyone was...hellos in the morning, Etc. That just doesn't happen in Avalon. Good nature experience too! Great for pet owners as many were walking dogs on the beach --We will go back !

Bella and Franco back for another go!

  • 5 of 5
In June we decided that we needed a getaway to the quiet part of the Jersey shore. So we contacted our former hostess, Mary, and asked if she could take us in on very short notice (2 days). She did and she noted that since we left the property in a very clean condition after our previous stay, she gave us a discount. She explained that she was very insistent on her guests leaving the property in good condition because she had a 100 mile drive one way and a very short time to service the property between guests. Anyway, when we arrived, we found the cottage to be very clean. We used the WiFi to keep in touch with family while we were there too. Although the weather wasn't perfect, we enjoyed the quiet location along with the fantastic bay breeze. We visited downtown Cape May which is only 15 to 20 minutes away and watched beautiful sunsets at the end of the street. Once again Mary, thanks for the short notice accommodation and the discount.

Owner's Response: Thank you!!!!Your both always a pleasure to have in my home, guess the discount really pays off coming back again and again.. LOL. I never mind having you because obviusly you treat my home as if it's your very own. I wished most guests treated the same, unfortunately I had repercusions when I had to deduct off for the cleaning. Funny thing is, I provided a cleaning check-list of to do's and still it gets ignored and some guests threntend to give a negative review.
Come on back, my home is waiting for you.
