We stayed at the Rose Suite for a weekend, with a total of 3 adults and 2 children. The property was very clean and had a well-stocked kitchen. There were pillows and linens readily available, and we appreciated the well-thought-out conveniences of things like coat racks and night lights. It was handy to have a back door directly to the...

This suite was in a wonderful location! It is within one walking block to the outdoor shopping area and just one or two small, city blocks to the beach. Just two houses down and across the street is the Mad Batter restaurant which has amazing blueberry pancakes for breakfast and the best crab cake sandwiches and clam chowder or dinner....

We just completed a week's vacation at the Terrace Suite and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The suite is updated nicely and kept very clean. We arrived early and went to peek at our suite and were fortunate enough to be able to meet Joe and Eileen who so graciously gave us the parking pass for our second...

We stayed in the Puffin's "Terrace Suite" and we can't think of any location that could be better. We parked our car on Friday and didn't need it until we left on Sunday because this perfect location on Jackson St. was within walking distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants and all of the great things that Cape May is known...

I absolutely love staying at The Holly Suite every time I visit Cape May. You can't ask for a better location, just a 1/2 block from the beach and The Washington Street mall. The Holly Suite is always in pristine condition and the roof deck is just the icing on the cake. It's my absolute favorite place to stay and...

This apartment is on Jackson Street across the street from the Virginia Hotel. That puts it about a block away from the beach and the same distance from the Washington Mall with all its shops and restaurants. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location. We stayed in the Holly Suite, one of 4 at the Puffin. There is no...

We stayed at the Terrace Suite at the Puffin and it was wonderful. It was great to have on-site parking as well as an additional space off-site and the outdoor shower was wonderful for getting the sand off from the beach.
