Try us out this year for your getaway. We pride ourselves with the shore's best housekeeping staff, great amenities and and attention to detail.
Important Note to save you $$$: By booking here on Houfy, you will be saving approximately 25% off your vacation over the OTAs (online travel agencies) such as Vrbo, HomeAway, Airbnb, TripAdvisor, etc. A change in NJ tax law in August 2019 exempts guests from paying sales and room tax (11.625% in our location) when they book directly with us, the owners! You can do that here (and you can't do it with the OTAs). Also, by staying away from the OTAs, you avoid paying them their "service fee", which would add another 7-12% onto your vacation! So Houfy.com is the least expensive place for all of our guests - we guarantee!
The front yard is the classic beach yard - stones and crushed sea shells. Parking is available for one car in the driveway and several more cars on the street in front of the house.
The house is more than 1500 square feet. As you enter the home, you will see that there are hardwood floors throughout. The first room is the living room, complete with seating, built in bookshelves with a small book collection and a gas fireplace. This is a great quiet place to curl up with a book in the central A/C on those days that you want some alone time while everyone else heads to the beach.
The back of the house hosts a warm and updated kitchen. There is an island with three bar stools for a quick meal and just about everything you could possibly need is included. There is a stacked washer and dryer in the pantry, plenty of storage for all that you bring with you (and plenty of shopping nearby for anything you forgot). Electric glass top stove, two drawer dishwasher, standard oven/convection oven, microwave, brand new refrigerator with ice maker, and small appliances such as coffee maker and toaster.
If you step farther back in the house through the kitchen, you will enter the three-season room. A dining table and four chairs and some additional furniture give guests a way to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the weather. Large screened windows can be open or closed and two doors lead to the fenced back yard. There is a 2nd gas fireplace in this room, which will let you enjoy meals and time with family and friends outdoors even when it's cold outside.
Down the hallway on the first floor is the largest of the two full bathrooms. It has a large walk-in shower (no bathtub). There are two bedrooms to finish off the first floor, one with a full (double) bed and one with a queen bed. Both rooms include storage in dressers and/or closets.
Upstairs you can create your own "Master Suite" or open up the space for all your guests. The entire floor is brightly lit with natural light and has hardwood floors.
The Master bedroom is large and beautifully furnished with a Queen sized bed, dressers, side tables and other storage.
There is a smaller full bathroom. This includes a shower/tub combination, but note that the tub is tucked in under a dormer.
Finally, the Family Room (or use it as a fourth bedroom) is expansive and includes a sectional sofa, a bar and bar stools, a 50" large screen television and board games for guests to enjoy. The closet has an additional queen sized air mattress. Out the back of the family room you will enjoy a rooftop deck that is often shaded by the large trees in the neighborhood and offering some seating for several to enjoy.
The back yard is private and shaded and includes a storage shed that houses some of the toys we have brought for guests to enjoy along with us. The fully fenced yard will keep your dog and/or children safe. A children's picnic table and standard picnic table provide even more summer fun seating.
With a FRIDAY changeover day in the summer months, you can get a jump ahead of beach traffic and enjoy more time on vacation. Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check-out time is 10:00 am so that our housekeeping and maintenance staff can ready the rental for every guest.
Get the best of both worlds - close to the quiet of the bay (only 387 steps from our front door to the sandy dunes) and the excitement of the ocean towns. Historic Cape May is a great getaway for all ages. Take a ride up the Jersey shore to nearby Wildwood as well. Or simply stay bayside and enjoy all that it has to offer. If you have never considered a vacation at the bay, give it a try this year to discover the hidden secret of a quieter beach vacation that is still close to all the action.
Pet friendly house and beaches (bayside). Very walker and biker friendly neighborhoods. Quiet and family-friendly, including rentals and many private seasonal and full time residences. Shaded back yard and neighborhood.
