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, you will find it like stepping back in time to the shore as it used to be, with spectacular, romantic sunsets. We may be the most southerly location, but the extra 30 min. drive from other shore points will be worth your wild. It is not crowded, beaches are free, parking plentiful, and you don't have to fight traffic. That in itself is worth it. 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.

About Mary Barbera
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
Why Mary Barbera chose Cape May
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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.
