This suite was in a wonderful location! It is within one walking block to the outdoor shopping area and just one or two small, city blocks to the beach. Just two houses down and across the street is the Mad Batter restaurant which has amazing blueberry pancakes for breakfast and the best crab cake sandwiches and clam chowder or dinner.... More

We just completed a week's vacation at the Terrace Suite and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The suite is updated nicely and kept very clean. We arrived early and went to peek at our suite and were fortunate enough to be able to meet Joe and Eileen who so graciously gave us the parking pass for our second... More

We stayed in the Puffin's "Terrace Suite" and we can't think of any location that could be better. We parked our car on Friday and didn't need it until we left on Sunday because this perfect location on Jackson St. was within walking distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants and all of the great things that Cape May is known...

I absolutely love staying at The Holly Suite every time I visit Cape May. You can't ask for a better location, just a 1/2 block from the beach and The Washington Street mall. The Holly Suite is always in pristine condition and the roof deck is just the icing on the cake. It's my absolute favorite place to stay and... More

This apartment is on Jackson Street across the street from the Virginia Hotel. That puts it about a block away from the beach and the same distance from the Washington Mall with all its shops and restaurants. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location. We stayed in the Holly Suite, one of 4 at the Puffin. There is no... More

We spend a long weekend the end of September in Cape May at the Puffin "Rose Suite." The "Rose Suite" is a two bedroom, nicely furnished, fully equipped kitchen, suite on the second floor of a beautiful Victorian home. The master bedroom is large, with a comfortable bed, and it has a front view to the street. We ended up... More

We stayed at the Terrace Suite at the Puffin and it was wonderful. It was great to have on-site parking as well as an additional space off-site and the outdoor shower was wonderful for getting the sand off from the beach. The suite was well-equipped with all of your kitchen needs and there were recent updates to both the kitchen... More

Marty and I stayed in the Puffin Rose suite on a four day getaway vacation. It was fantastic! Accommodations were beautiful, relaxing, and very clean. Location was perfect for beach and shopping, walking distance for both. Front porch was comfortable for our early morning coffee and evening relaxation. We enjoyed touring through the wonderful Cape May city. Can't wait to... More

I know the description said you have to take two steps down to the Terrace suite, but I didn't expect that I will be staying in the basement of a house. Not to mention all my family members are between 6 feet to 6.5 feet tall. The ceiling was so low that we all had to keep putting our heads... More

We stayed in the Rose suite with 4 adults, and a 2 year old, so read this review if you are thinking about staying in the Puffin with kids. Yay!: Great location. So, so close to beach, so close to Washington mall. Front Porch. The perfect place to sit in the evenings. The unit was clean upon arrival, and well... More
