The Mermaid and the Whale welcomes you to stay in a charming historic farmhouse 1.5 miles from the beach.
The Mermaid and the Whale offers sheets, bath towels, beach towels, pillows and blankets for your use during your stay, all inclusive in the cost of the rental. Don't want to deep clean your rental on your last day of vacation? No worries. Just place the house back in order and take out your garbage, and we will take care of the deep clean.
The Mermaid and the Whale is located on an acre of property with plenty of parking and space to run for the kids. The property is beautifully landscaped and a great place to relax. Hammocks hanging under the trees are one of our favorite places to catch a nap or watch the many birds flying around the property.
We are located on Seashore Road, north of the beach. We are located near the Cape Island Preserve, where there are long well-marked trails through the wetlands. Want to do some exploring? Vineyards, Beach Plum Farm, Cape May Brewery, and even a distillery are all within easy biking distance. So, we provide the bikes too! We have 4 bicycles available for your use. And don't worry, we didn't forget the beach gear! We have provided 8 beach chairs and 3 beach umbrellas.
Our home is a relaxing place to spend your vacation. With two separate living rooms, a sun room that operates as the TV room/office, a large dining room attached to the kitchen; there is plenty of space to congregate with family or sneak away to read a good book. The handcrafted dining table can accommodate 10 people comfortably and is also perfect for puzzles on a rainy day.
Since we are 'late to market' on this listing, we are offering the house at reduced rates. We have done a lot of work on it recently, exterior painting and new AC unit for the King Suite. The inside has been beautifully appointed for all your comfort needs.
The house has four main bedrooms. We have affectionately named them as follows:
The North Bedroom: Fireplace, Queen Bed, Two Closets with in room access to the farmhouse style bathroom.
The South Bedroom: Queen Bed and Twin Bed, One Closet. Close by to the farmhouse style bathroom.
The Helm Room: Queen Bed, En-suite bathroom, one hanging closet and two closets for folded clothing.
The King Suite: Located off of the kitchen, this large addition has an en-suit bathroom and walk-in closet. And don't forget the KING bed.
The Pirate Room (Bonus room): This is not included in our listing of 4 bedrooms as this is not an official bedroom (no closet). Our finished attic has been converted to a bedroom. Air conditioning, windows, and a door are all features of this 3rd floor bedroom. Two twin beds perfect for children are located in this bonus room.
Summary: The house officially sleeps 11. There are 7 total beds. 1 King, 3 Queens and 3 twins. We have listed our home for 8 people as we would like to minimize damage to the property. We request that your respect this limit. In the event the 8 people limit is exceeded, this may affect your security deposit. If you anticipate exceeding the limit, please let us know and we can discuss this together.+ More
