Always love this house. Very comfortable for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

I have a group of girlfriends, usually 15-20 of us go for a weekend getaway and stay at this house. It is big and bright inside. All amenities. They did some updates since last year and it was great as usual!!

Great location and great layout

  • 4 of 5

I would have given this house 5 stars without question if the house had been clean when we got there. This may have been a fluke with the cleaners, but there was hair everywhere in every bathroom - not just a few but a disgusting amount. The drains in a couple of showers were also backing up and we had to clean out the drains.

Other than that the house was fantastic. The table is huge and allowed us to gather as a family for our Thanksgiving meal and play games at night. The library was a fun place to do puzzles. The couches were a great place to watch movies. The kitchen is huge. It could use some new pots and pans and maybe some more silverware, but I know Lisa is planning on restocking. The bedrooms were great with so many beds that we had several extra.

The best thing for me was the ability to walk to town because it was Black Friday and small business Saturday so there were a lot of shopping opportunities and parking was at a premium. The walk to town was great because you could walk along the path by the ocean. And being so close to the ocean is the only way to go.

We would definitely rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Kim I am so sorry about the unsatisfactory cleaning. We have excellent cleaners -we did have a new heating system installed and I'm not sure if a mess was.created with that but nonetheless we regret it and wish I knew upon arrival and would have had them return immediately. I am glad you enjoyed the house and it's layout and location and glad you will consider us again.

Great place for large groups! So spacious. Great location! Property manager so helpful!

  • 5 of 5

This property is great for large groups. The amount of twin beds makes it possible for everyone to have their own bed. I slept in the first floor room that had a very comfortable sofa bed. The living area and kitchen are so spacious and accommodating. The location is great! One block from the beach, right near the entrance to the boardwalk. 15 minute walk to town. Plenty of beach chairs for everyone to use. The property manager was so helpful and accommodating. Loved it! Would use this place again!

Lot of space, close to the beach, walking distance to town

  • 5 of 5

Great house! This is just 1 block from the beach and about 15-20 min to the shopping area with cute restaurants and shops along the way. The driveway fit 5 cars and it seemed easy to find parking on the streets nearby. House comes furnished with kitchen utensils, pots and pans, etc. You just need to bring sheets and towels. We chose this house for the big open floor plan with plenty of seating. The only negative is two of the full bathrooms are en suite so you'll have to enter a bedroom to use. It really wasn't a big deal for us but just something to be mindful of. We loved our stay!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

First time in the house but loved it. Open main floor was so comfortable. Easy to cook for so many people. Porch was good both in the morning and especially for happy hour in afternoon. Easy 1 block walk to beach and beach chairs and bikes was a nice plus.

Another great week in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

Prior opening the door to a spacious, well stocked living area you must cross over an inviting front porch which my family loves and uses for morning coffee that (on many days) last until lunch. The house is well stocked, clean and roomy. Everything was in working order and large enough to accommodate the needs of large groups. Would I recommend this property to a friend-you bet I would. PS-very close to the beach

Map

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!
