The Puffin Terrace Suite is situated a block away from downtown and about 2 blocks from the beach. Location wise, it doesn't get better than that! Parking in the back was tight but a free parking permit at a nearby lot (about 10 min walk or less) is included. The suite was clean, nicely updated and well stocked with kitchen essentials. There is only 1 bathroom so depending on group size might be a little tight but otherwise is totally manageable. The owners were so nice and great with answering any questions you might have. I really can not emphasize how lovely my time here was even with the poor weather while I was in Cape May. Highly, highly recommend!

We've been to The Puffin three times before, and this weekend trip did not disappoint. The Terrace Suite is conveniently located on the ground level and had plenty of room for our group of 3 adults and 2 children. The suite was very clean and inviting, and the location is fantastic. Everything is just a short walk away. Already looking forward to going back!

We stayed in the "Holly Suite" at The Cape May Puffin Suites. We had a wonderful stay at the condo. The Cape May Holly Suite was furnished beautifully. The private roof deck had amazing views of the ocean. The "Holly Suite" has to be the best unit in The Puffin. I can't imagine a better one. The new private deck above is an awesome addition. The beautiful bathroom shower is something you have to see in person. Oh and Jackson Street is the best street to stay on. You know why if you've stayed there. I am not one to write lots of words, but if I were, I'd never be able to end this. But as nice as this place is, I'd have to say that the owners may be one of the nicest things about it. Never met them but I feel that I have just from talking to them. Hope I get to meet them some day.

Most ideal location in cape may! Jackson street is overwhelmingly charming with historic Victorian homes in an array of colors. The puffin is centrally located on Jackson street with a large, comfortable front porch for enjoying your coffee or playing a game of UNO. Seasonal flowers, nautical decor & wicker furniture keep the puffin bright with a welcoming 'home away from home' energy! We had many friendly encounters on the porch with other guests. A couple of blocks (even less!) to the beach, arcade, mini golf & tons of eateries & shopping! We never needed our car! When my children needed to use the bathroom from the beach, we would walk to the puffin because it was so close! The terrace suite was so bright, clean (immaculate) & comfy! The outdoor shower helped keep sand to a minimum in the apartment. We appreciated the clothes line for wet towels & suits. The beach decor in the terrace apartment was cheery & fun. Spotless apartment & appreciated the keurig! Staying at the puffin makes you feel like you're in the center of cape may. From the porch we enjoyed watching trolley tours pass by, horse & buggy rides, many bike riders & walkers. We loved feeling like we were in the best location in cape may!

This trip was our third to The Puffin and first to the Atlantic Suite. This time we had 3 adults and 2 kids under 10. Again, the location is fantastic--many things just a short walk away. Having 2 bathrooms was very convenient. Some upgrades were done/in progress since the website photos were taken, and they were very lovely. There were many amenities available, and the owners were responsive to questions. With this third floor suite, we had privacy the whole weekend.
