About suzanne taylor

My parents left my family this beautiful Victorian home in 2009.This house had been on many private home tours for MAC,as my mom had it decorated perfectly.It is the Horacio Church House named for the original owner.When I moved up from Florida where I'd lived for 30 years,I changed to 2 car garage into a sweet guest cottage,I've managed to combine two things I enjoy-meeting new people and sharing my gardens.I call it the Flamingo because it reminds me of Florida and the quirkiness of that state.I grew up in West Chester,Pa but Daytona Beach was my second home.Cape May is a wonderful place to live and I'm thrilled I can be here with my little dogs.

suzanne taylor purchased this cottage in 1975

Why suzanne taylor chose Cape May

I've found Cape may to be the most peaceful town I've ever lived.Even in the summer just walking out of the mall area brings a quietude.I've found a job right down the street and don't even have to drive to get there.My father had a vegetable garden, mother had flowers all over,I've tried to combine both of them

True Gem! Great place in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was my first 2-week vacation at the beach, and I was lucky to have found this place as I booked pretty late. The things I loved most about this place include 1) the owner is responsive, friendly and thoughtful; 2) the place is extremely clean, has all the amenities, and ample supply of towels and bathroom supplies; 3) this is honestly the best location EVER. I stayed in Cape May long enough to explore every facet by foot, and can tell you there are no better coordinates. You're close enough to the beach to walk, but not too close where you hear all the noise. And, you'll be near what we felt was the best restaurant in town - the Washington Inn.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful review.I'm so glad you had such a great time,it was a pleasure having you. There is so much to explore in Cape May,it's more than a beach town. The cottage is just off the beaten path but still near the action. I hope to see you again soon.!

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Little Flamingo Cottage was the perfect getaway! It is in a prime location, a few walkable blocks from the beach as well as shopping - yet on a nice quiet street. Suzanne was a great hostess, the cottage was spotless and had all the necessities. My wife & I are sure to visit again!
