      Pleasant stay in West Cape May

      House comfortably holds 8 people. The central AC keeps everything cool and dry. Really nice yard and plenty of parking for 3 to 4 cars. The back porch is a nice sitting area but the front screened porch was everyone's favorite. Plenty of room and a decent kitchen but a little light on pots and pans. The house does sit on Sunset Blvd and it is a very busy road during the day. It is not busy at all at night so sleeping is not an issue. Mattresses could use updating. There is a beach you can walk to by going across the street and through the nature preserve (which is beautiful) but you are NOT allowed to sunbathe or swim at this beach. You must go to the Cape May main beach by Beach Ave or the Cape May Point beaches if you wish to go in the water and sunbathe. We went to the Point because there is free street parking. If you were to walk to a swimmable beach it's about 30 minutes. We drove as it's a bit much to carry beach chairs and coolers over a mile. We walked to the Washington Street Mall in Cape may but eventually we would drive down 2nd ave and park just before Broadway which took about a mile out of the walk. Overall a nice property and very responsive owner., We had a great time!

          Great place to stay in West Cape May!

          4 adults and 2 toddlers stayed here for Memorial Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. We loved the walk to the ocean through the nature preserve, and also loved being so close to Beach Plum Farm. We spent mornings pointing out amazing wildlife in the preserve to the kiddos and then heading to Beach Plum for breakfast. Each couple took a date night to the Ebbitt Room while the other stayed home to babysit as well. Such a wonderful escape from the daily hustle! The house itself is really cute, with plenty of room for all 6 of us. The bedrooms are tight, and we did struggle to fit our cribs in them, but it can be done! There were also a good amount of mosquitos this time of year at the house, so bug spray/citronella candles were a must in order to enjoy the adorable backyard. Susan was easy to reach, and available for anything while we were there! We'd love to come back soon.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great place

            It's a beautiful house. Nicer then the picture make it look. It has everything you need (bedding, pillows, kitchen supplies, a grill, etc). We had a wonderful stay and would rent again.
