“Fabulous Accommodation”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in August 2013

This was an absolute ideal location and accommodation for myself and a friend visiting Cape May for a week. The owner Barbara has exquisite taste when it comes to decorating. I wish I could buy this condo! Short walk to the beach, free parking space on the side lot of the house, a few steps to Washington Mall and shopping, carriage rides, and restaurants. This is on the second floor, up a flight of steps with porch chairs and swings all 'round for enjoying your coffee and a good book. Clean, fresh, crisp with a lovely kitchen(I love to cook and eating out in Cape May can get expensive) with all you need except the groceries. Furniture is not new, but is comfortably chic. Wiindow air conditioners.

This is a multi-owner condo situation, and the outside of this beautiful old Victorian home could have used some TLC and maintenance. Nothing major - just a mental note that the outside needs to be attended to as well as the Merry Widow's Pied-a-Terre owner takes care of her condo.

As for the wireless question, I can't remember ever opening up my computer while I was there so I can't remember if there is wireless or not. Now that's a great vacation.

Booking, lease, deposit all easy breezy with Desatnick Agency. Professional and fast!

My daughter and I had a very nice stay here. The rooms are spacious. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the space so there is privacy . The kitchen is well equipped, however we did not cook or even use the coffee maker because everything is so close to this condo. Hot coffee and delicious baked goods are just around the corner. There are charming shops located in the bottom of the building -one of which offers all kinds of dips and vinegars as well as fresh baguettes. Makes for a nice light lunch---which is best eaten on the front porch, of course!
I am very impressed with the location because it is PERFECT! Step outside and it's one block to the beach. A block that is one beautiful house after another. Or go left and it's steps to Washington Street and all the fun to be had there.
We simply had a great time!

What a lovely Victorian home, just what we expected from the photos. The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was perfect, everything was within walking distance. I would describe it as very quaint. My only suggestion would be to update the TV, but then again, who needs to watch television when in Cape May? The parking is a bit tricky, you have to back in, but once there we didn't move our car anyway!
It was a pleasure staying there and the owner and rental agent couldn't have been nicer!
We hope to visit again!

“Great Location Cozy Condo, plenty of room for 6 adults!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

You are right across the street from the Washington Street Mall, 1 block from the beach, in the Victorian section of Cape May. You could walk to the Acme Market 3 short blocks, and tons of dining options you can walk to. If you have a big car (Suburban or Explorer) plan on parking it for the week. The lot is tight, but if you rent bikes, there is lots to see. Big trucks need to back into the driveway to unload and shimmy up to the fence and fold in mirrors for parking. On-site parking is a plus in this neighborhood, though all tend to be tight. Extra cars can park for free at the elementary school about 3/4 mile away. Kitchen was wll appointed, the basics. There is both a tub and corner shower stall. Nifty antique drying rack in the bathroom to hang your bathing suits. We travelled with 3 college-age students and Mom and Dad. We would stay there again!
