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

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!
