This suite of rooms within my home offers a bedroom, sitting area, and a private bath. Osprey Nest is located within a 10 minute bike ride from the best sunsets in South Jersey overlooking the Delaware Bay, and only a 10 minute drive from the best beaches, restaurants, and attractions of Cape May and Cape May Point. It is an ideal getaway for a peaceful and relaxing escape!

The space

This suite was recently renovated with new paint and carpets, and the private bathroom (not shared) offers new luxury cotton towels; it also has handicap access, with tile, granite and marble appointments. The bedroom offers a Queen sized bed with memory foam top, elegant linens, and comfy pillows. The sitting room offers a full sized sofa and a 40 inch Samsung smart TV. There is a covered front porch with rocking chairs for private use of guests. Other amenities include: a Bose sound station, Kuerig coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave oven, under counter refrigerator. Beach towels and chairs and beach tags for Cape May beaches are provided.

Guest access

Guests access through their own separate front door, which offers security with keyless number pad entry, programmed with an exclusive number unique to that the guest. The lock activates at check in time on the day of arrival and deactivates at checkout time on the day of departure. Guests have exclusive use of the front porch with rocking chairs in a quiet setting overlooking the garden. There is a private enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water for use after the beach. I provide beach chairs and beach tags for the Cape May beaches.

Interaction with guests

I live with my small and very friendly terrier named Guapo, in the rear part of the home, with a completely separate entrance and living space. The dog does not shed and he is non-allergenic. I am available for any questions and advice. I have lived in Cape May for most of my life, and have extensive knowledge about restaurants, history, and fun things to see and do!

Other things to note

For longer stays, guests may use laundry facilities (minimal fee). The suite offers a microwave, toaster oven, under counter refrigerator, and Keurig coffee maker. I supply dishes, wine glasses, coffee mugs, etc. The coffee table is cool... it lifts up to dining table height if you prefer. (Please note the suite does not offer a full kitchen, but there are SO MANY great restaurants or carry out options!) Osprey Nest is completely smoke-free both inside and outside. Please respect this house rule and if you must smoke do so off premises thank you !

I have travelled the world extensively, and take pride in my home. I ask for respect and peaceful enjoyment of this lovely space I wish to share. While I am a private person, and indeed I love to meet new travelers and share stories and experiences, I do live in the home and therefore request peace and quiet. This is a smoke free home both inside and outside, so if you must smoke please do so off premises please. I ask this because often the windows are open, and if you smoke on the front porch the smoke has nowhere to go but inside my part of the house. Thanks for understanding if you are a smoker. There is a $100 cash security deposit due upon arrival, fully refunded upon departure provided there is no damage. There is a $40 cleaning fee. I have "House Rules" in a welcome booklet with lots of information and I request that guests read this upon arrival. Thank you and Happy Travels with Airbnb!!

Craig's home was very clean. We loved the private suite and the location was great.

Quaint little place in a quiet neighborhood, with easy access to downtown Cape May, the beaches and other local attractions. Craig was easily accessible and communicated with us before, during and after our stay. Great host!

Just perfect, comfortable, Craig couldn't have been nicer and gave us lots of privacy. Maybe someday there would be a way to sound proof the wall between our section and his, but nothing that would keep us from returning!! What a nice little escape that we will never forget!

Response from Craig:
Julie thank you for your comment about soundproofing, I just looked on Amazon and they have curtains that I can hang on each side of the glass door that are soundproofing curtains. So I ordered them and I hope that helps. I chose to put a glass door there so when I don't have guests the light can come through, but these curtains come with a tie back, perfect!! I hope they work for better soundproofing; thank you again for the helpful comment !

21 Osprey Drive is a gem! The guest quarters are perfect for a couple, with a very comfortable bed, beautiful bath, and a very cozy, comfortable private sitting room with a sofa to sit and enjoy you favorite tv show, or just read a good book. You'll need a car, but it's a quick ten minute drive to reach the heart of all venues that Cape May has to offer! Craig's home is a true value - you'll save some money and be close enough to the beaches, great restaurants, and shops of beautiful Victorian Cape May. Your Host Craig makes every effort to make his rental a perfect place to stay!

We had a beautiful time at Craig's. He made us feel home from the beginning. We had time to chat with him a few times through our stay and meet his two little dogs (Bacci and Guapo) and we got all the information that we needed to get around town and through Cape May. This private, one bedroom, one bath + living room is beautiful and Craig provides everything you need for a nice beach vacation: beach towels, beach tags... even bikes! (Plus, coffee, tea, water bottles and orange juice). If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful time in North Cape May, Craig's home is the place!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a home-within-a-home at Craig's residence. Rental accommodation is nicely decorated and spotless; it has a bedroom, bath, and den/living room, all with a separate entrance. Craig is sweet and accommodating, and has provided thoughtful touches such as a microwave, mini-fridge and coffeemaker. He can also lend you beach chairs and bicycles. If you're as lucky as we were, he might offer you a homemade pasta dinner, just to put your experience over the top! We'll be back ...
