Lovely 6 BR Less Than a Block to Finest Beach. Center of Cape May

Bedrooms 6
Space 2,600 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

6 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 15)

17 Jefferson St.: This beautiful 6 Bedroom and 2.5+ Bathroom, Victorian era home is just 4 houses from Cape May’s finest family beach and a short walk to its best shops and restaurants. When not at the beach, you will be enjoying the home’s large porch with its seven rockers, full hammock, and big views of the ocean. The house sleeps up to 15 and has off-street parking for 4 cars.

We bought the house in Spring 2010 and have invested heavily in renovations and new furniture to make this a superb rental - over $300,000 to date. Virtually every area of the house has been renewed, inside and out. Despite all the changes, we've tried to keep the 1901 look and feel of the house. The improvements include A/C and heating throughout, completely new kitchen (quality appliances) and master bath, new outside shower, all new beds and mattresses (replaced double beds with Kings and Queens), new high-end furniture in the living and dining rooms, new flat screen TV and blu-ray DVD, fresh painting and wallpapering throughout, etc.

We try and make the house as comfortable for our guest as possible. The kitchen is well stocked. There is wifi and a premium cable package. We keep beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys for all to use.

This is a perfect home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a pre holiday weekend visit. We spent very little time at the house but it was perfect. It had everything a large group would need. Clean, well decorated and a dining room to die for. Oh and for fun, a karaoke machine. We would fo back in a minute.

Wonderful house in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay!

The house was great and kept in great condition. Really close to the beach and not a far walk to the Washington Street mall.

Spacious & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This well maintained property is our go-to spot for a friends weekend getaway. Excellent kitchen, great dining area and enough space for everyone. A special word of thanks to John (property manager) for his swift & professional response to a minor issue.

Charming home!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home so my family could all stay together for my son's wedding weekend and be close enough to walk to the Inn of Cape May for the reception. It was just perfect! 3 bedrooms and a full bath on each of two floors. Very well equipped kitchen. Comfortable living room. No complaints! We will definitely rent this again if we come back to enjoy Cape May!

Wonderful Victorian, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very well modernized, yet historically charming Victorian Home! Located on the beach block and a short walk to restaurants and the downtown mall. We parked the car and did not use it again until we left. Our gang highly recommends this home.

About Blair Pomeroy

We bought the house while living in Geneva, Switzerland, so you will notice little Swiss/French things throughout the house. We now live in Blair's hometown of Pittsburgh, so our kids can be near family (it's also a great city).

Blair Pomeroy purchased this house in 2010

Why Blair Pomeroy chose Historic District

Just a great location seconds from the beach and an easy walk into town. Guests love the front porch with its ocean views and breezes. It's a big one! Lots of free parking too.
