Overview

South NJ Shore Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + two new cots. 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The building was built between 1894 and 1896. Originally it was a general store and a Post Office, then an ice cream parlor and at one time the upstairs was the town hall. I purchased the building in 1975 and the accommodations were very basic and very old. During a trip to Disney World I was inspired to completely renovate the upstairs into a first class apartment. We saved the original doors, trim and molding and after removing 4 to 5 coats of old paint reinstalled them. The original hardwood floors were also refinished. The new floor plan positions the kitchen sink in front of a window that frames the Cape May Point lighthouse, a beautiful sight when the sun is rising in the morning.

Past tenants call the large screened in porch with upgraded furnishings, the jewel of the building. It is great for lounging, dining and socializing. The private back yard patio adjacent to the rose garden has a picnic table, gas grill, locker full of beach gear and an enclosed dressing room with shower, laundry tub, hot water heater and drying rack. The patio can be used to store bicycles for the night.

Keywords: Spacious 2nd floor 3 bedroom apartment, accommodates 8. It has a large screened in porch for lounging, socializing and dining and an outdoor patio with a grill, picnic table and private outside enclosed shower . Open the windown and sleep to the sound of the surf.

Why Frederick Benoit chose South NJ Shore

Since 1950, I grew up spending every summer vacation in Cape May Point. When I had the opportunity to purchase the building, I jumped on it. Even though I have lived in other places during my career, Cape May Point has always been my home
