THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

Cape Island contains the municipalities of West Cape May, Cape May and Cape May Point. The apartment is centrally located in an historic residential neighborhood.

Cape Island offers BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE. Cape May is a federally designated National Historic Landmark (NHL). There are about 2500 NHLs in the USA. Most of them are single buildings. Cape May is on as a landmark district because of the concentration of Victorian architecture.

Cape May's beaches are unique, especially for the Jersey Shore, in that they are south facing. You can watch the sun rise and set without ever losing sight of the ocean. Unlike the barrier island beaches that face east, since Cape May is not a barrier island, you don't get the biting flies that often are swept in from the wetlands with a westerly breeze.

Other Cape May accolades include:

~~ One of the TOP 20 FOOD CITIES IN THE USA (Conde Naste Traveler)

~~ One of the TOP TEN US BEACHES by THE TRAVEL CHANNEL

~~ TOPS THE LIST of "The 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL COASTAL TOWNS IN THE USA" published by

~~ One of the 10 BEST BIRDWATCHING SPOTS IN THE USA by USA Today

~~ One of the 9 BEST BEACH TOWNS FOR FOOD (IN THE WORLD) by The Daily Meal

~~ The Cove Beach, Cape May, New Jersey; One of 21 Best Beaches by Coastal Living

About Suzanne Haggerty

I love the beach and to travel, especially to amazing landscapes and buildings. I have been a host as long as I can remember, since my earliest memories are helping my parents run a guesthouse in Cape May, NJ.

Meeting all types of people and seeing all sorts of places keeps life interesting.

My three Bedlington terriers (Star and her sons - Blaze & Mr. Smokey) bring joy to my life every day. I'm passionate about teaching computer science and creating websites.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Accomodations were clean and perfect for two! Having the private front porch was really nice. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and a cool drink in the evening. The location was great. We walked to the center of Cape May, antique stores, deli, liquor store and restaurants. Bring your bikes! It is an easy bike ride to the lighthouse, World War II Tower and Sunset Beach. Suzanne gave us great pointers on restaurants. Our favorites were Freda's Cafe and The Emmitt Room (best calamari!!). We definitely plan to be back.

Great place to stay!

The apt was small and quaint. The front porch was nice to sit on and just relax to people watch! We will definitely come back! Suzanne was a great host and full of knowledge of the area and her dog Star was a cutie!

Another fantastic week on Broadway!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Suzanne's hospitality and attention to detail, we had another wonderful week at this cozy apartment for two. We really love this apartment's proximity to what Cape May has to offer (beach, Washington Mall, Rotary Park, fine and casual dining and shopping) and what West Cape May has to offer (fine and casual dining, quaint shopping, Wilbraham Park, Beach Plum Farm, Willow Creek Winery, Sunset Beach, Cape May Point)....all located within a short walk, bike ride or car ride. Awesome place for your next visit to Cape May!

Perfect for two!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place just like this for two separate weeks in Cape May. The location - in quaint West Cape May - was very convenient for shopping, dining, bike riding, beach going, walking into downtown Cape May, bike riding to Sunset Beach, Willow Creek Winery and Plum Beach Farm. There is even a lovely park within a two minute walk. The apartment's front porch was my morning coffee "happy place" while watching the sun rise over the trees across the street, and a great place to have a post-beach drink. The size of this apartment provides enough space in the living room, dining area/kitchen and bedroom and is perfect for two people. Upon our arrival, the owner Suzanne provided a tour of the apartment and lots of helpful information. We've been to Cape May many, many times but staying in this West Cape May gem was a real treat and just the relaxing experience we wanted.
