About the property

5 bedrooms sleeps 10

Great home on the Delaware Bay the NJ side. The house is on a bird preserve so there is a lot of wild life around. In the early summer the horse shoe crabs come lay their eggs attracting many different birds and fish. The turtles also come up and lay there eggs on the property in early July. There is a 100 foot fishing pier part of the home and ideal for the fisherman with a clean station. The home has a full kitchen, AC, Heat, washer and dryer, outdoor shower. The location is also good. 25 minutes to Avalon or 25 minutes to Cape May.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Here’s what Laureen wrote

“Location, location, location!!! Birder's paradise!! We had a wonderful few days at Alex's home! The deck is as beautiful as pictured and we were able to fish, sun and eat right on the water. Our primary interest was birding and we had water on one side and a wildlife management area on the other-spectacular! Ospreys flew overhead regularly. The house was spacious with plenty of sleeping space and 2 baths,a kitchen with a dishwasher as well as a W/D. The TV was large and had DISH. Cell signal was fine and the wifi worked well from a Jetpack. Alex was a wonderful host and was available immediately for questions and helpful info. Cape May (our original destination) was 30 minutes away, but given the phenomenal local birding from our own dock and at Matt's Landing and Thompson beach only minutes away, we only went there once. Groceries and restaurants (except for one very good diner) are about 25 minutes away, so you might want to get your groceries on the way in. Having my beloved dog with me while enjoying the area made for a fantastic vacation! We hope to return next year!”

Laureen’s private feedback for you:

What Laureen loved about your listing:

“The location and dock with the ability to fish right out your door was the best! For birding enthusiasts, the location can't be beat. I can't say how much it meant to have my dog with me-all the difference in the world!! Alex was always available without being intrusive. It was a really wonderful "

Great House & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great. It feels very secluded and peaceful, but there is a Wawa, gas station and diner about 15 mins. away. Layout was perfect for 6 adults and 2 children. Rooms were a good size and the open kitchen, dining, living room was great for everyone to hang out together. The bathrooms are big with plenty of space to put your stuff. The deck is huge with plenty of chairs. I loved listening to the waves at night and waking up to the birds chirping in the morning. East Point Lighthouse was right down the street and we walked there a couple times. The internet went out, but always came back after we turned the box off and on (there is a battery backup, so you have to make sure it actually goes off before you turn it on again). We also recommend bringing bottled water. Great house, thank you for letting us stay there.

Beauty by the bay.

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find. Alex was easy to work with . My first impression was WOW . Large beautiful decks wrap around this home . Inside was comfortable with views to be envied. Everything was better than the pictures of this home. Quiet and peacefull.

Do not pass this up if you get the oppurtunity to rent this home.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner was very responsive when we had questions. All the amenities you could want to get away and relax. 30 minutes to Wildwood. However, we didn't want to leave and only commitments to others drug us away on two occasions. Beautiful views and very peaceful.

peace and quiet on the water

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous vacation for our family +

Coffee/tea on the deck morning and evening - a short (30 minutes) ride to Avalon and Stone Harbor Beaches. Great bird spotting.

Very quiet, very private, very sweet.

Good kitchen set up and laundry to lighten you packing load so you need only bring books and sun screen!!!! Alex was very helpful and made good recommendations for dinning and activities.
