vacation rental description

Treat yourself to the very best of Cape May!   A newly refurbished, beautifully appointed oceanfront condominium in the iconic Sea Mist building is available for summer and off-season weekly rentals.  

For over a century, The Sea Mist has stood proudly as the Grande Dame of Cape May’s renowned Victorian-era architecture.  Built in 1873, The Sea Mist has been the most photographed building in Cape May for generations.  After award-winning restoration work, The Sea Mist was recently reborn as a luxury condominium, with care taken to ensure that all modern comforts are provided.

Unit 1 incorporates a beautiful combination of traditional detailing and contemporary “beach chic” décor, with high-end appliances and amenities. 

The Sea Mist’s prime position on the Cape May seafront, in the heart of the Historic District, means you are just steps from the beach and the famous promenade, as well as shopping, restaurants and nightlife.  Enjoy your morning coffee and relax on the outdoor chairs on the private front porch, with stunning ocean views. 

Stay in this Cape May landmark and enjoy an unforgettable vacation!

activities and attractions in Cape May New Jersey

Enjoy Cape May’s beautiful beaches – its groomed and lifeguarded beaches are among the top 10 in the USA.  The waves are great for body-surfing. 

The city is designated as a National Historic Landmark, thanks to its colorful array of Victorian buildings, some of which are open to the public for tours. 

Renting a bicycle is a great way to explore everything Cape May has to offer.  Walking tours and horse drawn carriage tours are also popular for sightseeing.  Stroll or jog along the famous seafront promenade that runs almost the whole length of the city, with a stunning view of the Cape May Lighthouse at the south end.

Cape May is a shopper’s paradise, with a range of independent shops, boutiques and antique stores along the Washington Street Mall and nearby streets. 

Leave the diet at home as Cape May boasts some of the finest restaurants on the East Coast, catering to every taste and budget. 

Go surf-fishing, crabbing and deep-sea sport-fishing in the bountiful Atlantic and Delaware Bay.   Dolphin and whale watch cruises are a fun day out with children.  The Cape May Bird Observatory is a favorite for bird watchers. 

End your perfect day in Cape May by watching the sunset at Sunset Beach, one of the few places along the East Coast where you can view a sunset over open water.  In the evening, live music can be enjoyed at the Boiler Room in the Congress Hall and at the Rusty Nail bar.
