About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12-14)

My wife and I are fortunate to have a 2nd home in Cape May and we absolutely love our 'Katie's Sun Cottage'...named after our daughter Kaitlyn...This home is meticulously maintained and has been in operation as a rental since 2003. The proximity to the beach is a short 3 blocks to 'Philly Beach' and you can hear the waves from the front porch (which has rocking chairs for 3 and kids chairs). If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a home that has everything at your fingertips, this may be the place for you. Every time we enter the town and drive over the bridge, a feeling comes over us that takes away any stress we may have.

The house is 3 levels and has 5 bedrooms, including one attachment room to the master bedroom which is used as a 6th bedroom. The home is suitable for 3 families and children and can sleep 10 to 12 comfortably and up to 14. The property is maintained year round by a landscaping company and you can expect a fully equipped kitchen for cooking.

There is Wi-Fi and a computer available in the library. We have 5 HD TV sets and a Mickey Mouse video set in the children's bunk bed room. This home is very kid friendly. We hope you will take a further look at our home for your vacation considerations. We are in our 14th season with repeat renters since the first year. Warm regards--The Smith family of Matt, Laura, and Kaitlyn

This house is the HEART of our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If your family, like ours, gets together for vacation; if you enjoy serving up a seashore feast; if you need a great night’s sleep after a long day in the sun; then the comfy family room, FULLY equipped kitchen, beautifully decorated bedrooms, interesting game area, breezy deck and very sociable front porch will make this the perfect vacation home for you.

Our three-generation family enjoys the sand and sea, biking, beach games like lacrosse and volley ball, barbecuing, exploring the Nature Preserve, and visiting Sunset Beach for the Veterans’ Flag Ceremony. Late evenings, after ice cream at the Washington Street Mall, or perhaps a round of mini-golf, we are back around our table for family games or a challenging jigsaw puzzle.

Don’t forget the Lobster House, Finn’s, Uncle Bill’s, and your favorite pizza shop, carriage rides and of course, the arcade.

Sometimes we walk the beach at sunset, and find live whelk shells and rock treasures, while waiting to view the International Space Station overhead. You will never find a better viewing spot. And, yes, a couple of us did see a shooting star from the front balcony upstairs.

The Sun Cottage is always shiny clean when we arrive (and when we leave). The owners do everything to ensure that our family’s needs are met. As repeat guests for many years now, we heartily recommend this house for your family’s fun vacation in Cape May. Just don’t take our week!

Katie's Sun Cottage, Cape May, NJ.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, and we're excited to be coming back back again in July 2017!

Located on a pretty street - peaceful and quiet yet convenient to the beaches, arcade and shopping village - the house is beautifully designed, decorated and maintained.

Bright, spacious and nicely arranged, the three-level configuration provides practicality in a cheery atmosphere, easily living up to the owners' description. Indoor amenities abound, and the large, well-equipped kitchen/dining area and exceptional sleeping quarters comfortably accommodated our extended family group. This year it will include our new granddaughter along with our 5-year-old grandson - who last year especially enjoyed the unique and spacious third-level bedroom/playroom area with his parents.

The lovely sun porch - and the good-sized rear yard with a shaded hammock and ample deck with a barbeque grill and bar setup - present ample opportunities for outdoor enjoyment.

Completing the experience was the friendliness and responsiveness of the owners in terms of answering any questions, and their commitment to ensuring a comfortable, enjoyable stay for their guests.

As should be obvious, we wholeheartedly recommend Katie's Sun Cottage as the ideal home base for a family vacation in beautiful Cape May!
