Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms/1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This well appointed, cedar-shake ground floor condo is in a choice location, perfect for small families with young children or an adult couple’s getaway. In addition to being close enough to walk barefoot to the beach (just two blocks), it is only a 3 block walk to Cape May's Washington Street pedestrian mall and some of the best restaurants at the New Jersey Shore. Walk 2 blocks west, and you are in the heart of West Cape May with its selection of antique stores, cafes and other quaint shops.

A lovely feature is the outdoor living space. Lean back and enjoy the evening sea breeze on the new wrap-around porch, it is the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach. Sit in the rocker chairs and watch the horse drawn carriages pass by. Also on the front porch is a 4-seat outdoor dining area with ceiling fan/light. There is also a new enclosed side porch with comfortable wicker furniture and lovely greenery -- ideal for reading and relaxing. This enclosed porch is shared with the upstairs condo. The garden is nicely landscaped with a seating area, fully enclosed outdoor shower, and gas BBQ grill.

This condo was completely renovated in 2007 with contemporary, high-end finishes. Inside you will find light oak hardwood floors throughout, large gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counter-tops and six bar stools. New appliances and new central A/C and heating keeps it the perfect temperature.

The condo has high speed wireless Internet access, flat screen high-definition TV with Comcast Xfinity cable, DVD player , CD/Radio.

The master bedroom has a double bed with fan, CD/radio, dresser. The second bedroom has three twin beds and lots of closet space (this bedroom also has a TV and Nintendo GameCube with plenty of games). The light, airy bathroom with white wainscoting and tiled shower, and washer/dryer. The fully equipped kitchen includes all dishes, glasses, flatware, utensils, pots and pans, refrigerator with ice-maker, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster.

Windsor Avenue is a quiet, tree-lined street and not one of the town’s major thoroughfares, so getting to and from the beach and other nearby locations is a breeze. We provide a guaranteed off-street parking space (in a driveway shared with the upstairs unit). Additionally, there is plentiful metered and unmetered parking on Windsor Avenue and nearby.

No smoking and no pets, please. Six seasonal beach tags included.

We rent year-round including weekends (2 night minimum). There is an excellent calendar of events on the Cape May Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts web site.

About Chris Anstey

Before buying our piece of Cape May in 2007, we were long time visitors to Cape May. It is a great place to vacation with our family and is unique among New Jersey resort towns. There is plenty to do and see, but it steers well clear of the loudness and frenetic activity that characterizes some other places at the Shore.

Chris Anstey purchased this condo in 2007

Why Chris Anstey chose Historic District

Cape May, NJ is the nation’s oldest seashore resort and a winner of the 2010 Traveler’s Choice Award. It has some of the nicest beaches around with lovely sand dunes and the shops, restaurants, and bars of Beach Drive. Congress Hall is a top notch destination hotel and a great place for cocktails!

What makes this condo unique

Of course, Atlantic City is only 45 minutes away up the Garden State Parkway!! The IMAX theatre there is cool. Visit 'The Quarter' at Tropicana and The Borgata. Or, head south and take the Cape May-Lewes ferry across to the lovely quaint town of Lewes or hop the bus to Rehobeth Beach. If wine is your thing there are a number of local vineyards with tastings and other events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Home is even better than described, location is great and relaxing on the front porch was one of our favorite things to do. We used the grill several times to cook the fresh seafood we picked up at The Lobster House.

Terrific visit to Cape May!

  • 5 of 5

Booked the property for a weekend away for my mother. She had a fantastic time and said the rental was clean and comfortable with everything she could need. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. The whole experience was smooth, start to finish. Thanks!

Great Location, walking distance to all the great activities Cape May has to offer. The condo was clean and a perfect set up for our group of 4. Nothing but good things to say anbout our host Chris, he was very quick to respond to the questions we had during our stay. I would definitely rent from Chris again. We will be back in the near future!

Perfect house for the weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have had a better location for us. was only a minute walk to the hotel where the wedding reception was and our other friends were staying. Also about 10 minutes walking away from all the bars and shopping! Lovely house, kitchen and living room area was beautiful! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would totally book this house again! Great for a group of friends or family!

Excellent location in the heart of Cape May on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for a min-vaca with my parents in April. At the last minute, work derailed my plans, but my parents enjoyed the place and a nice birding trip to Cape May. Chris was very accommodating with the last minute change in plans and generously offered to extend my reservation for a day, in case I was able to make it.

My parents found the place exactly as advertised. It was a well-designed, comfortable, well appointed condo, near town with all the modern conveniences. That was key, because they planned to cook most of their meals in the kitchen, instead of eating out.

Thank you for your thoughtfullness Chris!

Lovely stay in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, updated condo fit our needs perfectly. The unit is spacious and sunlit. The kitchen is very well equipped. The two bedrooms are nicely separated which allowed a bit of privacy. It was a very short walk to the beach, shopping, and dining. I highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
