Historic District Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms/1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This well appointed, cedar-shake ground floor condo is in a choice location, perfect for small families with young children or an adult couple’s getaway. In addition to being close enough to walk barefoot to the beach (just two blocks), it is only a 3 block walk to Cape May's Washington Street pedestrian mall and some of the best restaurants at the New Jersey Shore. Walk 2 blocks west, and you are in the heart of West Cape May with its selection of antique stores, cafes and other quaint shops.

A lovely feature is the outdoor living space. Lean back and enjoy the evening sea breeze on the new wrap-around porch, it is the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach. Sit in the rocker chairs and watch the horse drawn carriages pass by. Also on the front porch is a 4-seat outdoor dining area with ceiling fan/light. There is also a new enclosed side porch with comfortable wicker furniture and lovely greenery -- ideal for reading and relaxing. This enclosed porch is shared with the upstairs condo. The garden is nicely landscaped with a seating area, fully enclosed outdoor shower, and gas BBQ grill.

This condo was completely renovated in 2007 with contemporary, high-end finishes. Inside you will find light oak hardwood floors throughout, large gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counter-tops and six bar stools. New appliances and new central A/C and heating keeps it the perfect temperature.

The condo has high speed wireless Internet access, flat screen high-definition TV with Comcast Xfinity cable, DVD player , CD/Radio.

The master bedroom has a double bed with fan, CD/radio, dresser. The second bedroom has three twin beds and lots of closet space (this bedroom also has a TV and Nintendo GameCube with plenty of games). The light, airy bathroom with white wainscoting and tiled shower, and washer/dryer. The fully equipped kitchen includes all dishes, glasses, flatware, utensils, pots and pans, refrigerator with ice-maker, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster.

Windsor Avenue is a quiet, tree-lined street and not one of the town’s major thoroughfares, so getting to and from the beach and other nearby locations is a breeze. We provide a guaranteed off-street parking space (in a driveway shared with the upstairs unit). Additionally, there is plentiful metered and unmetered parking on Windsor Avenue and nearby.

No smoking and no pets, please. Six seasonal beach tags included.

We rent year-round including weekends (2 night minimum). There is an excellent calendar of events on the Cape May Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts web site.

About Chris Anstey

Before buying our piece of Cape May in 2007, we were long time visitors to Cape May. It is a great place to vacation with our family and is unique among New Jersey resort towns. There is plenty to do and see, but it steers well clear of the loudness and frenetic activity that characterizes some other places at the Shore.

Chris Anstey purchased this condo in 2007

Why Chris Anstey chose Cape May

Cape May, NJ is the nation’s oldest seashore resort and a winner of the 2010 Traveler’s Choice Award. It has some of the nicest beaches around with lovely sand dunes and the shops, restaurants, and bars of Beach Drive. Congress Hall is a top notch destination hotel and a great place for cocktails!

What makes this condo unique

Of course, Atlantic City is only 45 minutes away up the Garden State Parkway!! The IMAX theatre there is cool. Visit 'The Quarter' at Tropicana and The Borgata. Or, head south and take the Cape May-Lewes ferry across to the lovely quaint town of Lewes or hop the bus to Rehobeth Beach. If wine is your thing there are a number of local vineyards with tastings and other events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Home is even better than described, location is great and relaxing on the front porch was one of our favorite things to do. We used the grill several times to cook the fresh seafood we picked up at The Lobster House.

A charming house located within walking distance to the beach and shopping. Highly recommend!

It was a girls vacation and the three of us had plenty of room. The kitchen was well equipped and the bath had a great shower! We enjoyed sitting on the porch with our morning coffee and evening wine. Most everything is within walking distance. The owner was only a phone call away if we had questions, but the information he sent on the website was extensive. He even had great restaurant ideas! We are already planning a return trip for next year! Thanks for making our first time experience on VRBO a great one!

Cozy, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Being very familiar with Cape May, from when it was barely surviving during the fifties, until now during its once again glory days, I always preferred this area of town because of its true old Cape May feeling. This condo still captures that feeling.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and spacious condo with a great front porch. We rented the unit for a wedding weekend and couldn't have been happier we did. The location was ideal (5 minutes to the beach and shops/restaurants) and the unit was the perfect size for our weekend. The owner of the unit called us as we were headed down to touch base and let us know the cleaners were finishing up. Only suggestion is to bring your own towels/sheets (one of us forgot!) and the dryer took forever!

If we ever find ourselves back in Cape May we would love to stay here again.

Great place for a relaxing get-away!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our little group. It was the PERFECT location - walking distance to everything from the beach, Congress House, Washington Square Mall, and church for Easter Sunday. :) The home was quaint, yet spacious, with a nice big living space - kitchen and living room. And it was all on the first floor, which was great for my mom with the bum knees. Thank you to Chris, who checked in on us to make sure everything was as we expected. We had a great time, and we look forward to returning some day soon! (FYI - Great food options - Key West Tacos and That's Amore. Two totally different places and atmospheres, but both were fantastic!!!)
