vacation rental description

My home is three short blocks to the beach on a street with no parking meters. Once at the beach, you are one block along the promenade from the Arcade. You are three blocks walk to the Historic District.

My home was built in 1929 by the widow of Col Henry Sawyer who constructed the historic Chalfonte Hotel which is three blocks away.911 Benton Avenue is considered "Historic Out Of District".

911 Benton sleeps eight in four spacious upstairs bedrooms each with a paddle fan: three queen and two single beds.Two full bathrooms (no bathtub) plus an enclosed outdoor shower with hot water and a large and wonderful front porch with rockers. 

Please note the following:

> a gas barbeque is in the back yard;

> the driveway can stack six cars. No lawn parking is allowed. Benton Avenue has street parking with no parking meters! (rare in Cape May!)

> my side yard is filled with flowers, birdbaths and birds!  Cape May is on the bird flyway!

> Three short blocks to the can hear the ocean from the porch!

> Open front porch with rockers! Excellent dining area! Rare to have mosquitos.

> No pets nor smoking on the property.  Thank you

> Central AC unit. House will get cool but not frigid.  With the ocean breeze and the paddle fans, you may never need to turn on the AC.  But if you do, be gentle with it.

> Ample hot water for showers as hot water heater is very large.

> No Beach chairs, umbrellas, surf boards nor bikes are provided so bring your own or rent them. (However I do have some chairs which folks have left and those are available)

> Dishwasher, new gas stove, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, blender, mixer, very sharp knives, ample dishware, if you see it, you can use it.

> Dining room table easily sits eight and we have sat 10 with a slight squeeze.

> new 40 inch SMART TV; WiFi; iPod hookup (provide your own ipod); CD player and lots of CDs; DVD player and a selection of DVDs. Public library has DVDs and renters can use the library at no charge!

> It is an easy walk to the beach for both adults and children. The Mall is about six blocks; coffee shops and bike rentals.

> I create birdhouses from vintage wooden shutters. A sample photo is in this listing of some houses. Some are for sale at the house and also at the Chalfonte Hotel where I worked a few years as the handyman
> Benton Avenue is a low traffic street...nice neighbors...many non-renters on the street.

> Enjoy the artwork!

This is my home.  I am renting again this year as I need to be out of state for the summer.  So please take care of things for me and please do not move the furniture. Finally I make birdhouses from wooden shutters and have some on display and sale at the house.  My houses are also for sale at the Chalfonte Hotel where I was the handyman for a couple of years. Enjoy!   

Any questions, call me or email me.  Thank you!

traveler reviews for this cape may house rental

Ideal Family Rental in Cape May

Review submitted: February 12, 2014   Date of arrival: August 24, 2013

We stayed at this Benton Avenue home the past two summers and will be returning in 2014. The location is great, just a short walk to the beach. It is also less than a 10 minute walk to get into town.

The house is always in great condition. The bedrooms are spacious. The bathrooms are very modern. The kitchen has plenty of space to do cooking. We love the dining room and the large table for our family meals. We usually barbeque a few meals on the outdoor grill.

The living room has plenty of seating. There was a new sofa this year in the living room. The living room has a large flat screen TV on the wall. The whole house has wireless that you can easily connect to.

My favorite part of the house is the front porch. It is the perfect place for coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening.

The house is always clean. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. I can't wait to return in August.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Owners response: Since this entry, I have replaced the flat screen TV with a Saumsun 40 inch SMART TV. You will need to brush-up on your technology or have a youngster with you who can handle it! Enjoy!

review of benton

Review submitted: February 12, 2014   Date of arrival: June 22, 2013

We really enjoyed this house. It is in great condition, clean and very conveniently located just three blocks from the beach! We could hear the ocean from the front porch which was wonderful to sit on and relax! The outdoor shower was also a plus as well as the grill to cook meals. We were in constant contact with the owner up to our occupancy and he was wonderful to work with and communicated to us what we needed to do while we stayed there.

Owners response: 911 Benton Avenue is my home which I rent for some weeks in the summer months. I take well care of my place and folks who come here often come again….and again….they become part of my family….wonderful.
