Overview

South NJ Shore House Rental Photos and Description

3+ Bedrooms/3 Full Baths (Sleeps 9-10)

ENJOY LIFE BY THE SEA!

Your beach chair is waiting!

Adventure Awaits!

Make beautiful memories with family & friends at the beach...

Our home is located in a peaceful neighborhood surrounded by nature, and just 1 block to the bay beach! Connect with nature. You can be as active or relaxed as you like. Sun. Sand. Shells. Bikes. Birds. Bay Breezes. Kayaks. Kites. Picnics. If you can tear yourself away, you are close enough to enjoy the local attractions, most less than 10 minutes away. But try to make it back in time for the most amazing sunsets! Take the chairs/kayaks to the beach and enjoy the show. If you have never vacationed on the Bay, don't rule it out. (If you have, you know what we mean...)

Our guests will enjoy a clean, bright, comfortable house, freshly painted, with new furnishings. A little beachy, inspired by nature, with a bit of global influence.

The first floor has a living room, eat-in kitchen, laundry area, master bedroom (queen) & full bath, a second bedroom (queen) & another full bath.

The second floor can be used as one very large master suite, or as three separate sleeping areas (queen, 3 twins). Perfect for families traveling with children. There is also a third full bath upstairs.

Outside there is an over sized & gated deck, and a fully fenced yard. Great for BBQ's and lawn games. There is also a small fire pit in the yard. The gated front porch is also a nice place to relax.

Our home and the Bay are pet-friendly. Up to two well-behaved dogs can stay. A pet deposit is required. You can walk your dog on a leash on the bay beaches all year round.

Kayaks & vests are available for use, as well as bikes & beach chairs. And we recommend that you use all of them. Fun!

There is no smoking inside the house, please. But dancing is encouraged!

We ask that you treat our home, our neighbors, the beach & other natural surrounding areas with respect.

Enjoy your stay! Make great memories! The area is beautiful year-round.

About Maria Scott

We currently live in PA, near the Poconos. We grew up in Schuylkill County, PA, but have lived in Philadelphia, a few other places, and then settled in Northern California for quite a few years. We love to travel and explore new places, but we always return to Cape May... it just has a certain charm. And we still have close friends in the area.

Maria Scott purchased this house in 2012

Why Maria Scott chose South NJ Shore

We looked at a lot of properties in the area, but we kept coming back to this one. We love nature & the outdoors & being so close to the beach. And so this house felt like a natural choice. We love being able to share it with family, friends & guests.

What makes this house unique

We sometimes like to travel with family and/or friends. So we wanted a space that had enough room to accommodate one, two or even three families, but still felt cozy & comfortable. And within walking distance to the beach. We do that quite a few times a day when we are there!

Beautiful! A hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely, relaxing weekend in this lovely, well appointed,clean home. The home is spacious and offers plenty to do or a beautiful setting to relax and read. A short walk to the bay, less than 15 minutes to Cape May...would like to stay longer next time!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a wedding in Cape May. I cannot say enough good things about the entire process from booking until the moment we left. It felt like we were home. The house is neat, clean, cozy, and warm. We all instantly felt right at home. We took advantage of all the house had to offer from the bikes, yard games, kayaks. We walked along the bay. Maria was amazing from beginning to the very last moments there. PLEASE look no further. You will only be disappointed if you do not choose this house. Best house I have yet to choose on VRBO. Great job to the owners!

Amazing house and owners!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this house from North Carolina with 10 of my college friends to celebrate our 10 year reunion, and we couldn't have been happier with both the house and Maria. We had everything we needed plus some. The house, the amenities, the proximity to the bay, the proximity to fresh veggie stands and seafood, and the general atmosphere of the house was just perfect for our week stay. Per the owners' suggestion, we danced, we laughed, and we made memories. If I ever travel back to Cape May, this will be my home away from home. My only suggestion is to remember to put out the trash and recycling because going to the dump is quite the experience (we did it without the owners' request since we neglected the trash pickup day and didn't want to be bad tenants). I've lived the dump experience for you, so you don't have to!

Owner's Response: Thanks for being our guests! We are so lucky that our house seems to attract really great people... Love to hear that you enjoyed your stay & danced & made memories. Sorry that you went to the dump (smelly memory!), but thank you for that! You are welcome back anytime! Thanks again, Maria & Dave

This house has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house the week of 5/23/15- we were celebrating my son's 8th birthday and mine and my husband's 10th wedding anniversary. This house was a perfect choice! We invited my sister's family to stay a couple of nights and also my parents and there was plenty of room for everyone! It was a short walk to the bay beach and we thoroughly enjoyed the slower pace (as opposed to Wildwood or Ocean City). We rode bikes every day and grilled out on the deck in the evenings. It was a short drive to the beach (we went to the Cape May Point State Park because it was free) and it felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves! The owner was extremely friendly and responded to questions right away. They provided a binder full of restaurant options and menus which was also extremely helpful. We will be renting again!

Incredible...

  • 5 of 5

First I need to thank Dave and Maria for making our Honeymoon a perfect experience. The house, rather I should say home, is more than roomy enough and very inviting making you feel as if you are at your own home. They have went above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Ten minutes over to promenade in Cape May was the longest it took; we were also able to visit Wildwood, Brigantine, Atlantic City, Avalon, Sea Isle City, Ocean City New Jersey the take the ferry over to Lewes Delaware and visit Rehoboth, Bethany Beach, Dewey, Fenwick Island and finally Ocean City Maryland. There were bikes and kayaks on the property that we were able to use also. The home is centrally located and extremely welcoming, definitely looking forwards to a return trip.

Owner's Response: Wow Jeff - Thanks for the great review! Sounds like the house was a good fit for you guys & Congratulations! (maybe you should come back each year to celebrate!) We would love to have you - you were great guests. I think you have done more in that one week than we do in a whole year. That's the beauty of vacations, you can do as little or as much as you want to. Thanks again & keep us in mind for future travels. Maria & Dave

More than we imagined...

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we entered this warm and inviting place, we immediately felt at home. We had EVERYTHING we needed to make our week-long stay memorable including a fully equipped kitchen, beach umbrellas and chairs and even flip flops! Maria, the owner, was incredibly responsive and the sweet touches throughout the house reflect her attention to detail.

The house is situated on a quiet street...about a nice 3 minute walk to the bay. We brought our dog and she LOVED running in the bay in the morning at low tide and in the evening. Her favorite thing to do was wading in at high tide to chase after the kayaks provided to guests. This is truly a magical place for dogs!

The area is centrally located...we were about 15 minutes from Cape May, 20 minutes from Wildwood and 10 minutes from a major supermarket to pick up items to grill (awesome amenity) for a quiet night at home.

The home is perfect for families, with a 2nd floor loft that can accommodate about 5 sleepers with their own space (divided in sections). Having a dual AC system (1st and 2nd floor) was soooo handy! We could sleep comfortably with AC without freezing our friends upstairs and they could sleep with the windows open to catch cool breezing flowing through the loft.

We are making plans to return next year...it's a jewel!
