NJ Shore House in Cape May, NJ

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times at the NJ Shore House. We used it for a weekend wedding shower, and several annual family gatherings. I would recommend this property. The property is always clean and the pictures on the website reflect the property. The owner is pleasent to work with. The best part about the property is the extra large kitchen with counter/bar seating, the dinning room table that seats 20 people and the LR with gas fireplace. These 3 rooms are all open to each other. Great space to move/hang around in. You can be cooking in the kitchen and still feel you are with everyone else. Great layout and wonderful decoratoring with summer colors. Having speakers on the first floor is great for having radio/music that everyone can hear. The property is locate one block from the ocean - no ocean view. Hotel on ocean block, blocks the ocean. It is nice to be able to walk to beach and hotel across the street from house offers food and drinks. Excellent lay out of bedrooms and bathrooms. 1st floor bedroom with 1/2 bath great for Grandparents. Cape May is very nice area to stay in - you have the beach, boardwalk, shopping, and lots of restaurants. We have always enjoyed our time in Cape May at the NJ Shore House and we think you will too.

Life at Its Best on NJ Ave.

  • 5 of 5

The home was most comfortable for our cousin's reunion, easily accommodating 25 people including 2 babies. Plenty of room for puzzles and games on a rainy day, with comfortable, ample seating on the front porch for sharing family stories and laughter.

There were never too many cooks in the kitchen with its spacious layout, keeping us all in sight with the open concept to include the dining and living room. It was a joyous reunion. We loved our location, being able to rise early in the morning for a leisurely stroll to the beach to view magnificent sunrises.

Cape May/Jersey Shore was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the openness of house; air conditioning was nice but would prefer to open windows. Location was great, easy walk to beach. Cycled all around town. View was not so good as house faced back of hotel (red brick wall). Plenty of room for everyone; included all amenities we needed. Enough to do in the week we were there besides going to beach. Great sunrise and sunset. Quiet than expected given main street.

Great Beach House!

  • 4 of 5

This is my family's eighth year at this home. It is in a great location, only one block from the beach and close to boardwalk. The house has all the amenities needed to make your vacation easy and relaxing. It is well maintained with central AC, large kitchen and welcoming porch. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely time

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend at this home with a group of families. The house has a great entertaining space downstairs and lots of beds upstairs. We cooked some lovely meals and enjoyed the large dining room table which was perfect for our big group. The house is awesomely located near the beach and restaurants. There are two lovely outdoor showers and a nicely tended garden for the kids to romp in. I would highly recommend this home for large groups to rent. We hope to return! The only thing to note is that you need to bring your own bedding and towels.

Car: not necessary

You are 100 steps to the beach! Wake and wander to the beach in just a few easy steps. Roller blade, walk, run on the promenade in the morning. Bike around town on the bike trails or take a leisurely stroll to town for shopping and great restaurants. Take a house tour, play miniature golf or climb the lighthouse at Cape May Point. Take a trolley ride or a horse drawn carriage ride and listen to the history that Cape May offers as the first beach resort!

In the summer, there are movies on the beach, fudge and ice cream cones and the quiet roar of the ocean...every season has a reason...

Other Activities: In the Fall, there is Victorian week

In the Winter, enjoy the town as it resembles an old Dicken's novel. The town is decorated and there are many tours to see and hear about all the history in architecture and flavorful characters and 'spirits' that preceded us!

In the Spring, there are many boardwalk or beach runs, there are wine tours and Jazz Festivals

Any season is a reason to visit Cape May! We have so much to offer all year long!
