Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location near the Washington Street "mall". This old-style condo/apartment has everything one would need: 2 bedrooms, living area (with sofa-bed), dining room, kitchen, washer/dryer, books to read and toys/games for the kids. There's a deck with a grill. Beach tags and umbrella/chairs are included. Quiet except for the soothing hoof-beats of the carriage horses and the church bells - it's like going back in time! Clean (but somewhat dark, as is the Victorian style). Has AC (which we used only a little) plus ceiling fans and cross-ventilation. We will definitely be going back next year!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Stella Maris. It is so convenient to walk to the Washington Street Mall and to many restaurants. The apartment is nicely decorated with many antiques and the kitchen is well equipped.

Charming, Cozy, Comfy, Clean Cape May Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. Sweet note and fresh flowers greeted us on the dining table. It was our first visit to Cape May and this was the perfect place for our family of 6 adults. Awesome location for walking to beach. Kitchen is stocked with everything you would need. Very short walk to Acme grocery store. Excellent communication if you have any questions concerning your stay. You will not regret staying here.

Very convienient location in Cape May

  • 4 of 5

This place is close to everything. Especially close to the Washington Mall but not affected by the crowds and noise there. Lots of restaurants to walk to. The beach was a 10 min walk away and it was good to have the badges. Not really any coffee shops close by for early morning coffee but the Wawa was a short drive away.

The upstairs apartment felt like a Victorian bed and breakfast with extra amenities. The AC worked well during our hot week. It's nice to have the kitchen where we made breakfast and coffee and tea most mornings. The outside deck is a nice place to wind down at night. We could come back here again.
