About the property

100 feet from the bay beach and spectacular sunsets!

A new owner in 2014 and this home is back on the vacation rental market! Completely remodeled inside!

Amazing views of the bay and beach which are just across the street from the home! Beach chairs and toys are provided.

Welcome to this 2 story, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom plus an outdoor shower bay view cottage. Three bedroom are upstairs (two queens and 2 twins) and one is downstairs (twin bed) and a full bathroom on each floor. The outdoor shower is situated at the back of the house to rinse away the day's sand. A sunroom on the first floor lets in plenty of sunshine through windows that span the entire wall. A deck on the second floor is perfect for soaking up sunshine, watching the sunset and stargazing.

A fully-stocked kitchen allows vacationers to cook up meals at home. A range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and blender are here for your convenience. If you prefer to eat out there are a number of restaurants in walking distance or a short car ride. Just off the kitchen is a laundry room with a washer and dryer, iron, ironing board, and drying rack.

The dining room includes a table with 4 chairs and a bench that can seat up to 3. The living room includes two sofas, a love seat and a rocking chair for reading, playing board games, connecting to the internet or watching TV.

Enjoy bay views and gorgeous sunsets from the deck, sunroom or living/dining area. Take a walk along the beach, bike along the shore or launch your kayak in front of the home. Nature lovers will have plenty to keep them occupied between bird watching or scanning the horizon for dolphins. Children can play in the fenced-in yard.

Visit Cape May to the south for ocean beaches, historic home tours, quaint shops and award-winning restaurants. Drive east to the Wildwoods for boogie boarding and the amusement rides and waterparks on the boardwalk. Climb the Cape May Lighthouse and get a 360 degree view of the area. Take a ferry ride or tour the Cape May Airport Aviation Museum.

Come spend some time here and the views of the ebb and flow of the bay and beautiful sunsets are yours to enjoy. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, perfect for your vacation to relax. Villas just might be the best kept secret at the Jersey Shore. Come and discover for yourself!

No pets, please. No smoking allowed. Families and responsible adults only.

During peak season this is a Saturday to Saturday rental.

About Stephanie Turo

As a sailor in the Navy, I've traveled the world. Coming back to the Jersey shore reminds me of my childhood and the carefree feeling of playing outside all day and relaxing as the sun sets.

Stephanie Turo purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Stephanie Turo chose Villas

When I saw the proximity to the beach and the sunsets from the deck, I absolutely fell in love with this home. I grew up spending summers down the Jersey shore and am delighted to have found this little slice of heaven to call my own. I hope to share the peace and serenity I enjoy when I'm vacationing at the home with my renters. Feel the stress melt away. I hope you feel as relaxed as much as I do when spending time .

The house was cozy for my family of seven. We enjoyed the house, location and the area.

  • 5 of 5

My family went to Cape May for a weekend getaway to celebrate Mother’s Day. It was our first time to the area. Stephanie was responsive when I had questions. Her home was beautifully decorated and comfortable for my family. The kids enjoyed playing games in the sunroom. We also enjoyed the short walk to the bay where we strolled the beach daily looking for shells. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Bird watching in South Jersey

  • 5 of 5

Members of my family and I spent the first weekend of May bird watching in South Jersey. We decided to rent a home instead of hotel rooms, and we are really glad we chose this particular property. The location was great, somewhat central to multiple birding spots, and we enjoyed the proximity to the water/beach. The home was comfortable and affordable. We would definitely consider renting it again.

Great house, grumpy neighbor

  • 3 of 5

The house was lovely, and Stephanie was absolutely pleasant. However, we like to BBQ and play yard games in the evening, which one particularly grumpy neighbor did not appreciate. We had the police come to our house while we were all sitting eating dinner due to his complaints. Upside: the police were very apologetic and friendly. If you're like us and want to make use of the yard space, this house is not for you. But if you prefer to sleep and then go out and about, this house is perfect.

Excellent vacation beach house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was just as pictured. Plenty of room for the 7 of us. Well kept and clean. Very charmingly decorated. Very short walk to the beach and close to other attractions as well. Thanks Stephanie!

Villas is a quiet retreat just north of Cape May. Escape the crowds and enjoy the Villas - home of the best sunsets. Cape May is less than a 20 minute drive away with lots of history, culture, restaurants, shops and a beach with a promenade. Cape May County Airport is home to an aviation museum filled with historic aircraft. For the nature-lovers, stroll along the beach in front of the house searching for crabs and red knot birds or visit the Higbee Beach Wildlife Management Area or visit the Audubon Society. Looking for the boardwalk and rides? Head over to Wildwood to ride the ferris wheel. Don't forget to visit the local wineries and Cape May Brewing Company! There's something for everyone!
