We are beautifully located on Windsor Avenue, a quiet residential street in the historical section of Cape May, NJ. Walk to many Cape May attractions, only 2 1/2 blocks to the beach and 3 blocks to the Washington Street mall which has an assortment of unique shops and popular restaurants . We are also about 3 blocks to Congress Hall which makes it very convenient for Wedding parties that need additional accommodations nearby.

When you stay at one of our apartments you can expect to have a clean comfortable apartment with many comforts of home at a very reasonable price. The home is considered a historical home built in 1870 which was originally located on South Lafayette Street (a few streets closer to the beach) it was moved sometime in the early 1900's. The home has many charming features due to its historical nature as well as the décor. The owner is onsite for the Saturday turnover day to ensure all of the apartments are in excellent condition for our guests and to greet and show everyone around on their check-in day.
A recent renter, Joe B. and his family who rented our 2 bedroom apartment (Apt #4) in September of 2014...shared this wonderful letter with us that describes our place perfectly.
We are now back from our week long mini-vacation at Harvard House in Cape May and can resume E-mails. We only had the time for a week but it proved to be both relaxing and fun due in part to the place we chose to stay. It is in a peaceful area just two and half blocks from the beach on a very quite road but just a short stroll to the brouhaha of the town: an ideal situation.
This is a late Victorian house, unpretentious but very charming, informally furnished with an eclectic range of pieces crossing many periods with delightful decorative touches.
The words Charming, Friendly, Comfortable and Roomy with an Informal Ambiance and Spotless say it all. A place well worth considering and quite reasonable to boot!
PS: It has full kitchens with all appliances etc, but with so many great seafood restaurants who wants to cook.)"
We receive so many kind letters or notes that are usually left on kitchen tables thanking us for a wonderful place to stay.
Which could explain why so many families that have made this there beach house for many years. During our summer season our renters mainly consist of families who have children of all ages. It makes a great place for families to come together for reunions to share their vacation with each other. You can rent one apartment that suits your family or even the entire house (all 4 apartments) which can comfortably sleep up to 30 people (4 more with a pull out couch in our 2 bedroom apartments).
In our off season we continue to have many families renting from us which also include Coast Guard Families attending a Coast Guard graduation at the Coast Guard Base or large wedding parties that need additional accommodations. Many local weddings take place right at the beach on Windsor Avenue or at Congress Hall which are just a few short blocks away. We also have had bachelorette parties or just a friends weekend getaway. In the fall and winter season, many of our guests have enjoyed the Winery tasting / tours , the Sherlock Holmes Mystery weekend or best of all, Christmas in Cape May!
Damage Deposit $200 per stay Fees for additional guests may apply.

Harvard apartments is more than just another seaside rental on beautiful Cape May. They have become our second home for our family during the many summer vacations there. All through the years we have stayed in almost all of them. The apartments hold a lot of special memories for each one of us. The location and their proximity to the beach, the Mall and the nearby restaurnats make them a perfect vacation choice.
Ms Kieffer has always been responsive and accommodating to our needs or requests. Sandra's warm horpitality and courtesy has made our summers there very enjoyable and memorable.
We have been staying at the Harvard apartments since 2003
