Antoinette's Apartments & Suites
Ranked #20 of 40 Cape May B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had a great stay at Antoinettes, it was like going down the shore to your grandmother's house. Nothing is new or fancy in the house, but she has everything that you need, and those items can really save you time and money. No need to go get beach tags, she has a couple for you. Help yourself to the beach chairs, umbrellas and a beach cart to lug it all. Feel like going for a bike ride, she has a bunch of nice bikes (comfy cruisers) with locks so you explore all the great streets in Cape May. Sit on the front porch rockers and watch the carriages clip clop past. We did not use the grills but they are there if you want to use them, Acme is just a block away. We stayed in Peppernelli suite, which is on 2nd floor, very comfortable, but if you need upscale bathrooms and amenities, this is not the spot for you. Wifi was a bit sketchy, window ac units a bit loud, but for us all the positives outweighed these couple of things. Easy 2 block walk to the Washington street mall with all the shops and restaurants.

Appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences at Antoinettes in Cape May. Now that the summer is winding down we can plan some upgrades like noisy A/Cs - sorry for the extra noise. We have looked into upgrading the bathroom but Bathfitters wanted $5800 to do the job. Ouch! We did get a new modem in August and seems like the WiFi is more stable. Again, thanks for your feedback.

We were in Cape May for a wedding and had 5 people to house for 2 nights in June. Not easy to find places willing to accommodate us for only 2 nights, but Deanna was great about that and made us feel really welcome. We had a suite that had a nicely stocked kitchen with all the essentials, a living/dining room and a bedroom and bathroom. It was quite roomy and comfy with nice little homey touches. I really liked the little thoughtful touches, like the cooler that was in the kitchen so that we could bring food to the beach and keep it cool. There were bikes and helmets to use on the premises, a LOT of games, videos and DVDs and outdoor tables where we had dinner one night on the patio. Or we just sat in the rocking chairs on the porch and relaxed. The location can't be beat - within walking distance to beaches and to town. Deanna is a lovely host, unobtrusive but available whenever we needed her. We would definitely stay here again.

Antoinette's Cape May Guesthouse, is as advertised, a Charming Family-Friendly Inn
of Apartments, and Suites. This was our 3rd stay at Antoinette's; this time
for just my wife and I for a 3-night stay. We stayed in the The Peppenelli Suite (#4) which
is upstairs with 1-bedroom, living room, kitchen & bath. Washington Street is a quiet neighborhood
just two blocks from the Washington Square Mall and a short stroll to the beach front. Everything
was neat and clean. While we like to eat out, we found having a kitchen for coffee and light fare with
a refridgerator for cold foaming refreshments very valuable. We found the parking on the street not
to be a problem considering we stayed during the busiest time of the year. The room came with
2 beach badges for guest use. We also had cable TV and WiFi. Our host, Deanna, while helpful and friendly, has a wealth of knowledge about what there is to see and do in Cape May. We look forward to returning to Antoinette's and find this an excellent value!

This was our 2nd stay at Antoinette's within a year; this time for just my husband and I for a 4-day stay. Once again, we requested the Peppenelli suite upstairs with 1-bedroom, living room, kitchen & bath. We called Deanna 10 min outside of town & she promptly greeted us at the door & showed us upstairs. Everything was spotless. 3 out of 4 nights we parked across the street & on the 4th, we parked one block behind & walked. Walking to the heart of town is just steps away. Though we do not cook on vacation, we still love having the kitchen for making coffee in the AM & keeping fruit and/or leftovers in the fridge. It is incredibly quiet & Deanna is unobtrusive, yet available if you need her. 2 beach badges are left on the mantle for use. Outdoors are wonderful tables/umbrellas and a front porch w/rockers. This suite has a private back entrance & we actually feel like this is a home-away-from-home. If there is anything that is less than 100% desirable, it was that the beds were not the most comfortable. Maybe we are just getting older but...the flat pillows left something to be desired. Still, the value for this accommodation cannot be beat. We look forward to returning to Antoinette's!

Room Tip: 2nd floor is very quiet and private. Steep set of stairs but nothing unmanageable.

We have stayed at Antoinette's on multiple on occasions and it always feels like home when we push open the front gate. After unpacking we claim "our" rocking chairs on the spacious front porch where we have a front row seat as the carriages and pedestrians go by. You can pass a whole day reading on the front porch or venture out on the bikes that Antoinette's provides for her guests. Antoinette's is a very comfortable welcoming spot In gorgeous Cape May- we love it!

I stayed at Antoinette's Apartments for the weekend of April 12, 2013. I was in the "Lucille" room. The owner, Deanna, was very nice and the apartment was spacious, comfortable and clean - a bedroom, kitchenette and dining/sitting room. It was very quiet (save for a few construction noises going on in the street - don't know how long that will last) and super convenient. I did not need to use my car all weekend - the shops and restaurants are 2 blocks away and the beach a short 5 min. walk. The only small drawbacks were that there was no bathtub in my suite - only a shower and the house was a bit worn - it could use some renovations. But the price was better than any of the other B&B's I looked at. I paid $135 per night. I would recommend this and go there again.

Thank you so much for such a positive review. An we're glad that you enjoyed the fact that you didn't need a car to get around. That's one of the things that I love about Cape May. Everything from great shopping to award winning beaches to amazing restaurants is just a few steps away.

Our stay at Antoinette's was convenient and comfortable. Our host Deanne was very friendly and made sure we knew we could reach her for anything we might need. Since our stay was brief, we didn't really take advantage of the kitchen, but for a family or a longer stay, I imagine this would be a great convenience. All the main attractions of Cape May were just a couple of blocks away, easily within walking distance. We were very pleased with our stay.
