Maryland Ave. near Philadelphia Ave - convenient to beach (300 yrds), boardwalk and shopping, yet quiet street with ample parking.
Cape May has it all - for all types. And all Fall, there are great
events, like Victorian Week, The Food and Wine Festival, Fall Jazz
Fest, etc. Of course, there are great beaches - Cape May has been
ranked one of the top beaches in the US - one of the nicest being
just up the street (it is about 300 yards. You will pass about 5
houses and one hotel on the way. ((the blocks are narrow because they run parallel to the beach, so you pass over 3 streets with only 2 houses or one hotel on each block))There is a nice boardwalk for running, walking, shops and some amusements and a theater across the street. The historic district is a short 4-6 block walk.
Bart and Tricia
About Bart and Tricia
I have vacationed at this house since I was a kid in the 60s. It was very different then - a 3 bedroom cottage my Grandparents owned. As a kid I would help them with repairs and rentals.
Bart and Tricia purchased this house in 1996
Why Bart and Tricia chose Cape May
We do a lot of work each year to keep it very well maintained, which is somewhat unusual for beach rentals and even hotels at the shore. The house has a 'shore cottage' feel. It was a one-floor cottage until 2004 when we renovated it and added the 2nd floor. We intentionally kept the 1st floor true to the original cottage feel, except we updated it. And there are 2 rooms upstairs, facing the back yard. Therefore it is cozy, not massive.
What makes this house unique
I like to make sure people get what they expect when renting so here's a few thoughts: This house is right for you if.... you value great location on a relatively quiet residential street, a short walk to the beach, close to town and boardwalk, easy street parking, big yard, screened porch + 2 decks out back, very well-maintained home with modest size rooms. Think of it with the analogy of 'a very well maintained Honda Accord' good value, dependable, upper-middle level. There's enough beds and rooms for the stated amount of people allowed - in bedrooms - not on the floor or on cots like some places. This house is not right for you if.... - If you value tons of floor space for sleeping people on the floor and a place for a big party weekend, this probably isn't the best place for you. - If you want a classic worn, older rental that you don't have to take care of, this isn't for you. - If you want a huge McMansion with a 'Great Room and nothing but stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite tops, and daily maid service, this isn't for you. I reccomend The Southern Mansion B&B or a $10k rental. The usual people that rent this home in the summer are 1-2 families, 8 or 9 people; often it is a family and Grandparents/In-Laws. Hope that helps! :) I know it isn't easy comparing houses to all so different and hard to tell how nice they are inside...I know because I check out other places to make sure our rates are fair.
