Loved the balcony view of the ocean. What else can we say!!! We would definitely come back. Thank you, Shelley, for letting us stay in your paradise.

Owner's Response: Dear Viktoriya and Paul, We're so glad you enjoyed all the amenities of our oceanfront condo, including our private balcony. Sipping our morning coffee al fresco, while drinking in the ocean view, is our favorite way to start the day. We hope you can join the many families who have returned to our condo year after year, to enjoy another stay at their Cape May "home-away-from-home"! Best, Shelley

Another Great Week in Cape May!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Cape May for the past 20 years. The beaches are beautiful and clean and the city of Cape May is wonderful. The historic homes, fine dining, quaint shops, sunset beach and mini golf and arcades for the kids make Cape May a perfect family vacation destination.

Our stay at the Morning Star Villa was perfect. A beautiful historic home located directly across the street from the ocean. Our condo was truly a home away from home with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, central air, very clean and well maintained. The owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to future stays at Morning Star Villa and would highly recommend it to all.

Owner's Response: We're gratified to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Morning Star Villa. It's important to us that our guests feel comfortable in their Cape May home-away-from-home. That's why we upgraded to a king bed in the master bedroom. We look forward to your return-- and hope you'll make it an annual tradition, as other families have done!

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We, a three generation family, had a wonderful week in Cape May. The ocean provided the best entertainment: the force of the water, the big waves, the dolphins and the warm sand on the wide beach. The city itself is very attractive with many interesting older homes. We went to two theatrical productions, visited the light house and its museum and rented bicycles. We were glad there are no big casinos or amusment parks.

Our apartment was perfect for us! We appreciated its good location, its cozy atmosphere, the good beds and the well-equipped kitchen. We'd like to return to Cape May and stay at Morning Star Villa. The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to make our week a most pleasant experience.

Owner's Response: You, too, can enjoy a "home-away-from-home" just steps from Cape May's sparkling sands and frolicking dolphins. Experience the Victorian charm and modern amenities (including WIFI and jetted tub) of Morning Star Villa #7. Soak up the morning sun on our private balcony, while sipping your morning coffee and drinking in the ocean view. Partake of summer fun in the sun- or visit in the lovely shoulder season- and discover Cape May's Victorian treasures, cultural arts offerings, and world-renowned bird-watching.

Great location - wonderful condo on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful historic building, great location, comfortable, well-equipped condo. And what could be better than staying right across from the ocean and having off-street parking.

We look forward to returning to this fantastic villa on the sea!
