Why Geoff and Mary Lou chose Cape May

This roomy, comfortable and well equipped 3 bedroom, 2 bath Cape Cod style house is the perfect vacation house. It's ideally located - very close to the ocean, boardwalk and the center of town.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic location, bright and sunny house. The new high efficiency A/C window units keep the whole house very cool! The house is close to everything. Just a short walk to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants, bars and Washington St. Mall. Bring your bikes and ride to the Lobster House and fishing and boating harbor areas. Cape May is only 45 minute away from the great shows and gambling of Atlantic City!

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Cape May over the Easter holiday. The house was very convenient and walking distance to restaurants, shops and beach. The house was charming, and had all the amenities needed to make our stay very enjoyable. There is a well-stocked, large updated kitchen that made meal-prep very pleasant. There is wi-fi and plenty of TVs to make entertainment a breeze. They also had a large selection of books and games. The overall feeling while we were there was that we were in a "home-away from home". I highly recommend this property and I'm sure we will be back!

Just returned from our fabulous trip to Cape May! The weather was beautiful, sunny and warm enough to take advantage of the beach but crisp in the evenings for long walks. And what can I say about this home - and I do mean home, because it felt like a home. Geoff and Mary Lou have a lovely, character filled home in an ideal spot in Cape May. We rarely needed a car. Everything was an easy walk away. And despite being just 6 or 7 minutes from the action along the mall, the neighborhood is quiet and picturesque. The house itself was even better than we expected. The kitchen is beautiful and came equipped with everything I needed. The house is spacious - we didn't use the upstairs bedrooms, but they were bright and welcoming. The master bedroom was lovely as well. But I think our favorite spot was on the screened in porch off the kitchen. Our dog spent countless hours watching the rabbits and squirrels on the lawn. All in all, we were thrilled with our stay. I would rent again in a heartbeat!

A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had to find a new pet friendly rental location in 2015 as the former house we were renting for nearly 10+ years was removed from the rental market. We came across this house and were skeptical about renting from an online website. The owners were just great. I spoke to Mary Lou and she answered all of our questions and made the process for booking and chedking in so so simple. The house is perfect! Very clean, very well maintained, very well stocked (if you cook, which we don't while on vacation!) and in the perfect location for walking to everything Cape May has to offer. The screened in porch is a great perk, there is room under the porch to store bikes, etc.! We are definitely renting this house again next year, hopefully for two weeks if they are available. A true GEM!

Good deal /great spot

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here with our 5 year old twins and my mother. Great location! 2.5 blocks from beach and a 10 minute walk to the shops & restaurants of Washington mall. The house is spacious and had everything e need. A beach cart might have been nice. Not sure whether you need a beach tag since we were there in the off season. Owners were nice to work with. Would def stay here again!

Great House/Terrific Owners

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about the owner Mary Lou. My family planned to rent during the Christmas season however due to an unexpected death we were unable to vacation. Without hesitation, Mary Lou said we could pick another week. I can’t thank her enough for her compassion and for making a difficult time much easier.

As for the house, it’s spacious and has a lot of working areas. I was able to work during the morning hours in the dining room as the rest of my family watched TV and ate breakfast without disturbing me. The house is very clean and comfortable. They even have throw blankets in the TV room for the evenings when it gets a little cooler. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking appliances and again is very spacious. It was nice to have a small section of deck uncovered so that we could catch a little bit of sun—and not have to go to the beach. The location is good, just two blocks from the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and in the mornings and evenings you can hear the ocean with the windows open. If I need to rent in Cape May again, I will look here first for an opening.

wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this vacation home and we cannot say enough about it! Convenient to the beach, shopping and restaurants and absolutely perfect for a family with a young child. The games were well used by our son and the amazing kitechen was well used by us!

If your looking for a home away from home, this is the perfect place!

Beautiful Historic Cape May is the Nation's oldest Seaside Resort. It is bustling in the summer and quiet the rest of the year. In the off-season there are year round events ( google Cape May events) to keep you busy, and less than an hour's drive to Atlantic City. If you like quiet, no crowds, no traffic, come in the off-season.
