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 !
Perfect week in the perfect home!
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!
A New Adventure
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.
A Wonderful Week at Magnolia Porch
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.
This house was perfect for our multi-generation family. Loved the kitchen, huge porch, interesting decor. Ann is very helpful, quick to respond, very easy to deal with. Wish we were still there!
Perfect spot for the extended family!
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!!
What a memorable Thanksgiving we had at Magnolia Porch! Our family chose Cape May as a gathering point from Upstate NY, Michigan, Delaware and Baltimore. After sifting through other rentals in Cape May, we realized that this was a gem. Most of the older homes that looked charming on the outside had dated, tired interiors. Magnolia Porch has it all! The interior of the house is tastefully decorated and inviting. As soon as we opened the door we said – ooooohhhhhh! We loved being able to enjoy the charm of an older home with all the comforts of an updated interior. A unique and happy combination! The new kitchen, butler’s pantry and two fridges were perfect for dinner preparation, as was the large dining room to seat all 16 people comfortably. The kids spent hours playing Monopoly at the table one day. We particularly enjoyed the location of Magnolia Porch. So close to the beach (a short block), the promenade and town! If you enjoy walking, you will be very happy because you can access everything easily on foot. Ann promptly answered any questions I had and she kindly sent me detailed information about activities and events happening in Cape May during our visit. This was truly a weekend we will all remember fondly for a long time. Thank you to Ann and Marc for sharing your lovely home with us!
Priceless time with family and friends!
A long weekend in December was just what our family needed to rejuvenate, relax and enjoy being together! Magnolia Porch more than exceeded our expectations and needs. We loved cooking together in the modern and spacious kitchen, and then relaxing and eating together in the beautiful dining room. A short walk to the beach found us playing soccer, running in the surf, digging in the sand and jumping off of sand dunes. From the grandparents right down to the one year old, we loved sleeping in quiet, cozy rooms, and then waking up to the smell of fresh coffee brewing in the kitchen.
We found ourselves taking the short walk to town, admiring the picturesque houses along the way. Then, we’d come back to Magnolia Porch and declare to each other that we truly had the best house in Cape May! We hope to visit again soon!
Owner’s Response: Thank so much for the kind words. We’re so glad you were able to share some time in Cape May with the special people in your lives! We never tire of hearing how folks spend their time here. This home is a treasure and we feel that it’s the best in Cape May too! Room enough for everyone and effortless because of its location and modern livability. There really is a lot to do in this wonderful historic town at any time of the year…….how lucky you were being able to get to enjoy the beach in December! Our weather tends to remain milder than the rest of the New Jersey beaches due to Cape May’s location at the very southern tip of the state. Don’t forget the bird watching opportunities year round here too……there is a state bird sanctuary right in Cape May near the lighthouse and lots of birds (and butterflies!) use our town as a resting point along their migration route. Come back and visit us again soon……any time of the year!
