About the Owner

When we decided to rent our home we wanted to share its many wonderful memories with other families not just rent a week as a business. Building family memories is very important to us; you and your family work hard all year and deserve a relaxing time. It's perfect for a nice getaway for your family. My family has owned this property since the 1900’s; however our present home was newly built a few years ago. We believe everyone should be able to afford to relaxing beachfront vacation.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time that we have decided on a house rental and were happy with our choice. The house is very nice, and it was a bonus that we could bring our dog. It is an upside down style house which means the living area is upstairs with the bedrooms on the ground level. The master bedroom is nice and the mattress was comfortable and it had a master bath. There were 2 other bedrooms which were adequate and they shared a bathroom. The laundry room was helpful in a beach rental. The living area upstairs had lovely views with beautiful sunsets over the bay and porpoise sightings each night. There was an additional 3rd full bathroom upstairs as well. The kitchen could be s little better stocked with a few spices it would be easier without having to bring it all with us. We did not eat every meal at the house but it would have been easier to prepare with a few spices. This rental does not provide linens and the owner did not email the rental property info until the day of our arrival. It would have been nice to have had some of that info prior to our arrival not when we were on our way. The owner did call the land line when I arrived to let us know if the few repairs that she was advised needed to be done by the previous weeks tenants but it did not affect our stay. The house has central air and temperature controlled ceiling fans in each bedroom and 2 in the upper level living area. All in all a good choice and we enjoyed our stay

Communications with the owners is important throughout the reservation process, learning about the local area, activities available for your family, learning about our home and sharing your memories of your vacation in our guest memory book. You deserve the best vacation ever and we want you to have the very best, too. Our guest /memory books continue year to year with hand written comments from our many guest renters of all ages in many different languages about the pictures & memories they developed, places they visited, adventures they experienced and what made their vacation so special.We can share some of them upon request for future renters with their permission. .However, most of our renters only like sharing with each person or family to share this part of their journey with those to follow by recording their thoughts and hope that you will share yours as well .
We the owners believe it's important to Pay It Forward so every year we donate a percentage of our rental income to a note worthy cause. In past years we donated to the Super Storm Sandy Fund, Granite Reef Hotshot Firefighters,etc. These past two years the winter weather has been really harsh with the Polar Vortex and Jet Stream dropping causing many problems locally. So we have been and will be donating to the local area volunteer fire companies,again this year,too.
P.S. Sometimes the owner will rent : Winter Rates :Long-Term Monthly + Utilities:Please Contact Owner regarding Winter Rentals

GREAT FALL WEEKS AVAILABLE : Book NOW they will not last long! Winter Rates contact owner.

A few steps from the front porch leads you to a smooth sandy beach suitable for swimming or sunbathing all within walkie-talkie distance from our home it has it all. Fishing & crabbing is great from the nearby jetty. Kayaks & Catamarans dot the water in while bicyclists and joggers go by in front of our home. Beach tag free ocean beaches a few miles away. A few short blocks down the street you'll find Typhoon Henry's, popular restaurant by the bay waterfront. The Acme Shopping Center, Banks, Drug & Liquor store, Gym, Post Office, Urgent Care, Public pool & more restaurants are within a mile or two. Less than 1 mile along the beach, you'll find the terminal for the Cape May-Lewis Ferry. Besides housing a fine restaurant, it is your gateway to fantastic shopping in Delaware with over 135 outlet stores, many fine Delaware beaches & restaurants. It's a wonderful 70 min. cruise with some trips with entertainment. A few minutes’ drive will take you to historic Cape May, playground of the Victorian elite and Past Presidents. There you will find miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. Historical homes, home of the famous Cape May Spa, Washington Mall, CM Boardwalk and GREAT seafood restaurants (Lobster House, etc.).

Each floor has separate heating and air conditioning as well as electrostatic air filtration. Please absolutely NO SMOKING inside our home, our home is a smoke free home. Our family members have breathing problems including asthma. . Our home is protected by direct wired fire and intrusion detection. PET FRIENDLY Policy!! Hypoallergenic dog breeds preferred. Owner Permission Required and all requirements & laws must be obeyed. All dogs must on flea/tick preventive meds or in other words free of fleas/ticks, etc. Kennel trained dogs, well behaved dog's with all health certifications. Allergenic breed shedding dogs require special daily care due to hair/dander shedding. They will not be allowed on our furniture without pet covers or sheets covering them especially our navy blue living room furniture and daily floor cleaning is required. Small/medium size dog max. weight 25 lbs with prior owner approval & renter written agreement to additional expectations involving cleaning, dog care and healthy safety requirements. Our major problem with some family dogs is their adjusting to a new home.Normally, we require dogs to be kennel crated when left alone.However, our home has a solution to this problem it allows for you to leave your dog free to roam in our long tiled hallway by the bedroom areas. Just provide bedding, water, toys when left alone and use our 4 foot baby gate to block the hallway by the hall closet. This helps to keep your dog safe, from going up & down the steps, using furniture unattended and allows for easy clean up. (Most dogs like the cool floor). We do this with our own dogs; it works great!! Our other renters with dogs really like this option,too SUMMERTIME IS DIFFICULT FOR DOGS due to limited time allowed (between check-outs& check-in of next renters) for proper cleaning involving your dogs. NO DOGS are allowed in summer months without special permission from the owner with renter’s written agreement to additional expectations involving cleaning and care for their four legged family member. We need dog owners help to provide extra care so our home can welcome their family dog member and provide a clean dog-free environment for welcoming our families with allergies or asthma following them, too. TY Spring & Fall a $125 pet e deposit is required; Summer pet deposit is $150 both are non-refundable; exceptions for special needs.
