vacation rental description

The Abigail Adams Apartments are located just one and a half blocks from the beach in the historic James Leaming House on Decatur Street, one of the oldest and prettiest streets in Cape May. In addition to being so close to the beach, we are also just around the corner from the Mall, the pedestrian shopping and dining area which is the social and commercial hub of Cape May.  Cape May Stage and the East Lynne Company are a few short blocks away as is the new Cape May Convention Center.  The location is fantastic-everything fun and interesting right outside your door. 

We have three distinctive apartments available:

The Cape May Suite:  A large three bedroom, two bathroom apartment located on two floors at the front of the James Leaming House facing Decatur Street.  It has a cool awning-shaded front porch with wicker seating, a comfortably furnished living room, a dining area that seats up to 8, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel applicances, and a full bath all on the first floor.  Then up the beautifully carved chestnut staircase to the second floor, it has three bedrooms (two with queen size beds of which one also has a sofabed and one bedroom has a full size bed).  There is also a gorgeous, recently renovated full bathroom with white subway tiled walls and tub/shower surround. 

The Garden Apartment is also located on the first floor but at the rear of the house.  It has a separate private entrance and has one large, bright bedroom with a queen bed, a living room, decorated in soft gold and blue, with a comfortable double sofabed, an open plan galley kitchen and a bath with shower. It opens out to the lovely shaded flower garden which has a gas grill and picnic table and chairs.  

The Leaming Suite on the second floor rear also has one bedroom/living room combination with a queen bed and double sofabed, a newly renovated, beautifully tiled bath with tub/shower and a cozy eat-in kitchen. 

Guests share the use of the lovely, shaded garden in the back. It has a grill for barbecuing and outdoor tables and chairs for dining al fresco under the shade trees.

activities and attractions in Cape May New Jersey

Cape May offers a wide variety of activities including swimming, surfing, historic house tours, great shopping and some of the best restaurants on the East Coast.
The Abigail Adams Apartments are located just a few feet from the colorful center of town, the Washington Street Mall. Unusual shops, outdoor cafes, home made fudge and ice cream are just some of the great things you'll find on the "Mall".
In the other direction, we are just one and a half blocks from the nicest beaches in Cape May. Two miles of promenade (what we call our boardwalk!) run along the beach and offer great exercise, a great place to see and be seen or a perfect vantage point to sit and read the morning paper or watch the dolphins just beyond the surf following their dinner as it makes its way up the coast.
You couldn't pick a better location than the Abigail Adams Apartments to enjoy all that Cape May offers!

Great Spot in the Center of Everything

Review submitted: January 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 26, 2013

These apartments are very centrally located and were perfect for our stay in Cape May. Close to the beach, right in town, and included parking and beach passes. Not sure what else I could ask for.Only other thing I'd add is that the upper level apartment has a bit of a steep/narrow staircase so it might not be a great idea for a disabled individual or someone with mobility problems. Kate, the owner, was very nice and helped us with any questions. Hope to return soon.

Review submitted: January 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 29, 2012

My family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) recently rented the garden apartment. The apartment was not only adorable, but well maintainted and spotlessly clean. Though we didn't use it much, the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need and more. There was even a BBQ grill in the back yard! My kids were thrilled that it not only had a dvd player, but free wi-fi. I initially thought parking was going to be a concern, but once we parked the car, we only needed it once to go to the laundromat. The location was amazing! Only a block from shopping, restaurants and the grocery store. The trolley tour pick-up/drop-off location and bike rentals were also within a short walking distance. We loved that the beach was just a couple of blocks away as well. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay. The owner was very friendly and accomodating, even checking on us to see if we needed anything. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Cape May.

Lovely, cozy, and convenient!

Review submitted: August 21, 2010   Date of arrival: August 15, 2010

My family stayed in the cozy second floor apartment and we completely enjoyed our vacation in Cape May. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Kate, the owner, lives in the front of the house and was accessible and so pleasant. She was extremely helpful anytime we had questions. The location is so convenient and we were able to walk to just about anyplace in town, shops, beach, etc. Can't wait to go back!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
