We found the only vacancy at the Sea Villa on an impetuous trip to Cape May. We were warmly greeted and cared for by the wonderful proprietress Debbie Longstreet.
I found the Inn to be old and a bit careworn, but filled with fascinating treasures relevant to the owners interests. I spent time perusing the objects and learned a good deal from them.
We stayed on the second floor and shared a bathroom with no problem. There was an accompanying powder room/bathroom to do whatever else might be needed, as well.
The room was a bit stuffy, but was equipped with a working air conditioner.
Overall, the environment is a bit on the eclectic side. Possibly not to everyone's liking. It does seem to be in need of updating and needed TLC repairs, but I am sure it is an overwhelming task. I found it to be a wonderful experience and true to what an older 1800 Inn might have truly been like.
The breakfast, which is included, was excellent and bountiful. The delicious quiches, muffins were all home made by the wonderful owner. She spent a good deal of time with my friend and I afterwards expounding on the amazing history of the Inn.
We also met Debbie's son Ian and husband, who were both very cordial and outgoing. Ian kindly carried our bags up to our rooms.
We have rebooked a visit back In October. I am sure it will not be our last.
