Overview

Wonderful Large Cape May Vacation Rental. Only One Block From Beach With Huge Front Porch and Triple Wide Yard! A Large and Well Maintained Home with every modern amenity including 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms; sleeps 16 very comfortably!
Perfect for multi-generational family group vacations
Make memories at the Magnolia Porch, a well-appointed Cape May vacation rental this year!

Our lovely historic Cape May vacation home has been given a facelift inside and out. Our exterior is freshly painted and we’ve added a new kitchen, den, and pantry with a new open concept floor plan on the interior.

What We’ve Done
We added over 400 square feet of new kitchen and open floor plan living space. Our kitchen space is updated in every way. We now have two refrigerators, a 36″ professional gas range, two ultra-quiet dishwashers, three large sinks with disposals, and a separate kitchen pantry area for your entertaining convenience. The rear portion of this wonderful historic home has been newly constructed and a large and modernized living space awaits.  We also renovated an upstairs bath (with a large glass surround shower) and a powder room was added on the first floor for a total of 5 showers (3 inside and 2 outside), a bathtub, and 5 toilets.

Our beautifully landscaped yard includes gardens, a new gas grill, two bike racks, two picnic tables, and lounge chairs. Our private backyard is big enough for a friendly game of touch football or a spirited frisbee toss….yes, we have the biggest lawn on the block (!) so make sure you bring the games!

You simply will not forget your vacation at the Magnolia Porch! You can practically live on the enormous wrap-around covered porch which has 1260 square feet of eating, playing, and relaxing spaces for everyone in your group! Seven large bedrooms and 3 full and two half baths PLUS two outdoor showers with private changing rooms!

Sleeps 16 very comfortably
No squeezing into cramped ‘double beds’ or sleeping in the living room or sun porch in this spacious comfortable home. ‘Room for 16’ means that EVERY one in your party has their own comfortable bed, in a designated bedroom space, with a door that closes! Our beds are either King or Queen or standard-sized Singles. We don’t believe in overcrowding the home or making some folks sleep on uncomfortable sofa beds or roll-away cots while they’re on vacation.

Imagine!
After a day of playing on the world-famous white-sand beaches of Cape May, return to enjoy this home’s expansive living spaces. Enjoy rocking your cares away on one of our 10 big wooden rockers or sip a cocktail while enjoying the gentle breezes and listening to the waves on the beach which is only one short block away. Kick-off your flip-flops and swing on our vintage double porch swing or laze the day away on the extra-wide rope hammock. There are also three dining tables with chairs and two servers on this magnificent tree-lined porch as well as several other quiet spaces for sipping coffee while you enjoy the morning sun spilling through the magnolias.

Take a stroll on Cape May’s scenic beachside promenade…..or take a run if you’re up to it. It’s only a block away. Park your car for the week and forget about it….in fact, park 3 additional cars in our private driveway. (Free street parking on our block too!) Everything you could want is only a short walk away. Fabulous shopping and Zagat-rated restaurants, water sports, fishing, biking, it’s all here waiting for you.

Everything You Want
This Cape May vacation rental has a rich history with every modern amenity. No stuffy Victorian furniture or crazy old flowered wallpaper to contend with….just clean, well-appointed, and spacious rooms. Five clean modernized baths (three with showers) as well as two outside showers, each with a private changing room, await your group. High-efficiency full-sized washer and dryer for your convenience. Two-zone air-conditioning and forced hot air heating systems to keep you comfortable year-round. Two state-of-the-art tankless on-demand hot water systems provide limitless warm showers for your group. Never run out of hot water here at the Magnolia Porch!

New Kitchen
Our large sunny kitchen includes granite countertops throughout; a prep island with sink and three counter stools; our state-of-the-art appliances include a 36-inch Professional KitchenAid stainless convection gas range; 2 full-sized stainless steel refrigerators (both equipped with ice makers); two ultra-quiet Bosch dishwashers; and three stainless steel sinks — all with garbage disposals. Almost 50 cubic feet of refrigeration space is sure to hold all of the provisions for your group. You will want for nothing in this massive kitchen addition with adjoining den area and a separate pantry that is a second (!) kitchen.

Virtual Tour of Magnolia Porch
After a day of sightseeing or shopping, you’ll enjoy relaxing in this home’s expansive living spaces. Enter the large foyer through the welcoming Dutch door and enjoy this entertaining area which is fully equipped with bar glasses, ice bucket, and serving pieces. A large adjoining living room with big comfortable wrap-around sofas and a game table welcome you along with a fireplace original to the home. Lots of seating here in this beautiful room which is appointed with lots of books, many DVDs, and a 55-inch high definition Smart TV with an upgraded cable package, and wireless internet….all for your enjoyment.

Beyond the living room is an expansive dining room with a granite-topped lighted buffet niche and seating for all at our 120″ table. Large double mahogany doors open onto the side porch from this wonderful room……cocktails anyone?

Just beyond the dining room is our pantry area. This is essentially a second kitchen since it is equipped with a full-size refrigerator, a stainless sink with the garbage disposal, microwave, and even includes a second ultra-quiet Bosch dishwasher. This unique space includes floating wooden shelves which have been created from the recycled timbers of old homes right here in Cape May. Custom lighting makes this a special place for preparing morning coffee or for setting up a wine & cheese or appetizer station. This pantry’s large wooden sideboard can accommodate lots of platters for serving those special meals and for setting up a buffet since it is only steps away from our beautiful dining room and is easily accessible from the porch.

Beyond the pantry is a den (perfect for TV viewing!) that can accommodate a separate gathering of sports fans or cartoon watchers. A new powder room has been added here for extra convenience. This beautiful sunny room includes another large 55 inch Smart TV and is the ideal place to begin your day connecting with family and friends and catching up on the news or checking your email. This lovely room is also equipped with a stereo receiver with Bluetooth capabilities so you can listen to the radio or your own music through our Bose speakers.

A complimentary password-protected internet connection is accessible throughout our home and on the porch. All TVs are newer (Smart) and include an upgraded Comcast cable package with sports channels.

Once you’re ready to retire, choose from among this home’s 7 large bedrooms; again, no squeezing into cots or uncomfortable sofa beds here! Three of our bedrooms are conveniently located on the first floor with access from a quiet hallway, away from the action. There are also two bathrooms down this hall…. only a few steps away from the bedrooms.

Seaside Reunion

5/5

Seaside Reunion

Magnolia Porch was the perfect vacation spot for our multi-generational family reunion. Our “foodies” loved the fully equipped, beautiful kitchen, our teens thought the hammock and rocking chairs on the porch were really “cool” as well as having the beach only a block away. And the toddlers liked having a back yard with lots of running around space. My husband and I, being the senior members of the family, appreciated having a first floor bed and bath. We have been renting houses in Cape May for over 30 years and this was, by far, the one we most enjoyed. Thank you, Ann, we hope to be back very soon.

I come to Cape May several times a year and always for Restaurant Week. This year I came with 14 friends and spent 4nights in this Perfect Home, Perfect Location, and especially the Perfect Porch. The memories we created on that porch together will last forever. We are ALL ready to sign up for 2017. The owner was so wonderful to deal with. Ann, you have raised the standards so high, I will never be able to duplicate our stay any where else. This was off the charts. ….the very best !

We have been coming to Cape May for 15 years. We started when we had kids in college since it was a good place to connect. Now we are going with our 3 kids, their spouses and our 7 grandchildren! We have stayed in several rental properties, sometimes for multiple years. Magnolia Porch is, by far, our favorite home. It does not feel like a rental property. It is comfortable and very tastefully decorated. There is plenty of room to spread out, even for a group of 15. The porch is awesome, which is always important to us since we spend a good deal of time out there. My 9 week old granddaughter loved the hammock! The kitchen is beautiful and has just about anything you need, including a griddle, which my son put to good use every morning when he made breakfast sandwiches for the group. It was really nice having the butler’s pantry, which includes a second refrigerator. There are so many wonderful touches. We loved the free umbrellas and the beach box was a much appreciated bonus as well. We knew within a day of our visit that we wanted to come back to Magnolia Porch next year and were very happy to book again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We can’t wait for our 2017 visit!

Exceptional home – impeccably appointed with everything one could want or need. We held a family reunion for 15 that included grandson 8 months old and great-grandmother 87. The house was perfect in every way! Ann and Marc are wonderful hosts and checked in with me on day one. Could not have had a better place or a more wonderful vacation. Thank you, Ann and Marc!

We arrived at Magnolia Porch on Saturday afternoon, after having a nice lunch by the beach with our family. The house is so spacious and tastefully decorated and just feels like home! The bedrooms and bathrooms were amazing not to mention the new kitchen and Butlers Pantry! The wrap around porch gave us many happy hours talking and playing games with the grandkids. There is plenty of room to either be together or be alone for a nap. The dining room accommodated all of us for easy dinners. The walk to the beach was short and easy for my 4 grandchildren via a beach wagon. We left our car in the driveway and walked everywhere. Magnolia Porch includes 2 Beach umbrellas set up and a beach box to put your beach supplies in overnight. All in all, Magnolia Porch is a delightful, spacious home to rent for a week, our entire family had a difficult time leaving Cape May and Magnolia Porch behind, but back to reality!

Our family of 14 stayed here for a reunion and celebration. It is hard to add to what the other reviewers have posted since I agree with all of them. This house is beautiful, spacious, and perfect for large groups. Because the house is large and the living area from den to kitchen flows so beautifully, and the porch is so large and well-furnished, no one was crowded. The dining room was a great fit for indoor meals and the porch was perfect for outdoor meals or hanging out. There is plenty of room for multiple cooks in the bright and open kitchen. We especially liked the extra refrigerator in the pantry. Our bed was comfortable and the room (upstairs) was quiet. I would definitely return to this property.

This lovely home couldn’t have a better location! We love that it’s only a block and a half from the beach, yet also a short walk to restaurants and shops. It has been a gathering place annually for our family since 1998; my, how it has changed since then! We are very appreciative of the FREE beach umbrellas and that they were set up every day when we got to the beach. The wraparound porch is fantastic and encourages outdoor eating and socializing. The kids love the hammock and the chess/checkerboard. We also like the clean outdoor showers. The inside of the house is beautifully decorated, yet comfortable and inviting. The kitchen is user-friendly and well-stocked with dishes and cooking utensils and we love that it opens into the living room. The pictures in the kitchen drawers are very helpful in returning things to where they belong. The house, as always, was well maintained, clean and comfortable. We are very impressed by all the great things you have added. We love Magnolia Porch and are so thankful that we are blessed to return every year. We can think of no better place to come together to strengthen family bonds and to enjoy all that the Cape has to offer. So…a big thank-you for all you have done to make this just the perfect place for our annual family reunion.

We needed a nice central place to meet for dad’s 80th birthday celebration, and we’re so glad we picked Cape May, even more that we found Magnolia Porch!! Beautiful without stuffiness, comfortably elegant, great family feel! Loved being able to take short walks to the beach, even if the weather didn’t welcome a long excursion. The acoustics were nice, and we filled the house with joyful music. We got an excellent group photo on the porch before we left, and we’ll treasure that with our memories of a perfect weekend.

Our family group of 16 including 8 Adults and 8 Children enjoyed a fantastic three night stay at The Magnolia Porch over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The location was amazing and ideal for a quick walk to the beach as well as being very accessible to the lovely town. From the time we first pulled up to this great facility until we departed we were totally impressed with the charm and and functionality of this wonderful home. The incredible front porch as well as all of the interior amenities made our stay comfortable and memorable. All of the living areas are supersized and the beautiful new kitchen with adjacent pantry and oversized dining room made our Thanksgiving Feast one to remember. The Bedrooms and Baths were similarly suited to our large group. We are SOOO Happy that we chose The Magnolia Porch for our Holiday Destination! We simply could not have enjoyed ourselves more!!
