Overview

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.

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 Cape May

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.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a large group, this very well maintained property is perfect for a group of friends or family gathering. Particularly love the dining room, strong wifi signal and the simple classic charm of the house.

Our second time here and it was just as pleasing as our first visit. The owner and manager are very responsive, warm and professional. The guest manual for the house is easy to use and has complete instructions.

An A+ experience

Beautiful property, fantastic location. Clean and comfortable space.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Cape May so much! It was a great weekend destination for Halloween with lots of interesting tours and historic places to visit. And the house was a great location. We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go. The pictures don't do justice to the beautiful and well thought-out details of the house. We're already discussing our return trip!

Family Reunion/Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our extended family! Kitchen was well stocked. Dining room made family meals very enjoyable. We all loved sitting on

front porch and enjoyed the Indian Summer-like weather. Beds were comfortable. It was a close walk to Washington mall and the beach. Perfect location. Hope to return soon. Thank you for opening your house to our family.

A Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

17 Jefferson St is a gem.

Well maintained & centrally located this is an ideal spot for a family or group of friends looking for a quiet retreat in Cape May. The kitchen was well-equipped & thoughtfully laid out & satisfied our demanding cooks. Lots of dishes, glassware & flatware along with a variety of pots, pans etc.

Loved that so many of the rooms had queen and king accommodations, with ample storage space in each room.

A beautiful property with much to recommend it along with responsive & caring owners. You can't do better than this.

Best ever beach house in Cape May!

  • 5 of 5

If you'd like a place to stay that is super comfortable and spacious with everything you could want or need for the beach, that is walking distance to the town, and a stones throw from the ocean this is the place for you! Blair, the owner, is a pleasure to work with, I know this from renting this home each year with 7 to 9 of my colleagues. He is lightning fast to return any question that may arise and John the property manager is equally as responsible and kind and caring of anything which may arise. The beds are great none of us have trouble sleeping or aches and pains when we wake up. The porch is our favorite spot to listen to the ocean and rock on the rocking chairs or lay in the hammock. The kitchen is fully stocked. The basement has everything for the beach and that saves tons of room in your car if your driving there. If we could give this home a 10 out of 5 we would.
