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 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


~~ Top Birdwatching Spots in the World by Travel Pulse

Resources for all of the above plus my personal recommendations about local sightseeing, dining & beaching, as well as a recommended reading list are provided on my Pinterest Boards.

I've located some of my favorite spots and some basic info like grocery stores on a custom Google map. You can turn the layers (The Basics, Dining & Drinking, Shopping) on and off. If it's pinned on the map, it has my personal recommendation. It is not meant to be an all-inclusive listing of what's around.

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.

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.

Great Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at this rental! The owners were friendly and warm. They keep a list of recommended restaurants and activities in Cape May on Google Maps and Pinterest, which were good resources. They were very welcoming to my dog too. I thought the location was ideal -- very central -- close to the beach and several nature/wildlife preserves.

I would definitely stay here again!
