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!

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent labor Day week at this beautiful home located just two blocks from the beach. Mary Lou and Geoff we're very helpful during our stay at their home. Definitely booking again for next year. Just park your car in the driveway for your vacation, the beach and all restaurants are within walking distance.Great beach @ Jefferson Street.

Great location; house so-so

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property last week. The location is great; it's two blocks from the beach and it's a very short walk to town. However, the house could use some help. The listing says air conditioning, however there are window units; and not in every room. There isn't one in the kitchen, so when it's hot out, the kitchen gets very hot. The beds were very uncomfortable. The master bathroom had ants. We really loved the location; but won't stay here again.

We had the best time this past week and comfortably fit 5 adults, a baby and a dog! The kitchen was amazing, the location to the beach and shops/restaurants was excellent, 2 parking spots and on street parking, tv/internet, overall space, beds, 2 bathrooms, outdoor shower, screened in porch, AC, etc. were all excellent! I would highly recommend this location, and we are trying to figure out when everyone is available to come back again next year we hope.

We love this beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?? We love this house!! This is the second summer renting the "beach house" as my daughter refers to it and we truly enjoyed our stay! It is perfect for our family (6 adults and 2 toddlers). The list of things we love about the house is long... But the proximity to the beach, large living room/dining room, eat in kitchen, family room and screened in porch are definitely at the top! Love the outdoor shower! And it is also not a long walk to Washington Street and Congress Hall. Another nice convenience is the lock on the front door with the keypad... With 6 adults and only two keys it was really nice to just be able to use this feature when making our many trips back and forth to the beach! As I said we love this house, if we could we would stay all summer!!

Rental at Jefferson St

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Jefferson St. rental. Appreciated the new beach umbrella and new toaster. Last year I notified you that the old toaster did not work. Happy to see a new one this year. We love the property. Proximity to the beach is great. Looking forward to renting again for next year. Janice and David Lukowski

Second year of renting at 211 Jefferson Street, a wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect 10 in regards to location, amenities and cleanliness!

A great rental house! The screened in porch is a fabulous addition for relaxing after a long day of the beach and activities.

Look forward to our next week in august and ready to book for 2017 :)!

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.
