The Puffin Terrace Suite

This was our family's second stay in the Terrace Suite. We stayed for a week. The location cannot be beat. Close to the beach and the mall and restaurants. The unit is clean and has all the amenities we need. The porch is our favorite spot for coffee/tea and people watching. Look forward to our next visit.

Perfect Cape May Apartment

The Terrace Suite at the Puffin House is the perfect respite for a vacation in beautiful Cape May. The location is perfect for beach lovers and Washington Street Mall shoppers. However, the best is the large porch on the front of the house which is perfect for morning coffee, reading and relaxing. Joe and Eileen are very responsive to any questions you may have.

Wonderful December Getaway at the Terrace Suite

My family of four had a great week at the Terrace Suite in December, 2020. We enjoyed everything about it, especially the big TV in the family room and the large porch overlooking Jackson Street. Having Delaney's and The Mad Batter just steps away was amazing. We actually ended up walking to almost everything we wanted or needed, including Exit Zero Filling Station and Acme. Also, great communication from the owners, Joseph and Eileen. Thank you!

review of terrace suite

We had a wonderful time visiting, but it's too bad we could only stay for a weekend during COVID! Everything was very comfortable in the suite and it's very conveniently located to all the important spots in Cape May. We will definitely come again, and hopefully for a longer stay.

Terrace Suite review

The Terrace Suite at the Puffin was the perfect place to stay for our vacation in Cape May last week! It was incredibly clean with all modern amenities and owners Joe and Eileen were wonderful to work with. You can’t beat the location either! It is within walking distance to everything from the beach to all of our favorite shops and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again next year if it is available!!

Terrace Suite at Puffin

Just completed our stay at the Terrace Suite. (Sept.7th-14th) The accommodations were excellent as well as the location. With just minutes to the beach and fine restaurants we can't say enough about our stay. We enjoyed our mornings with other guests on the porch with a cup of coffee and great conversations and the plans everyone was making for the day. Thank You for making our stay full of wonderful memories. Frank and Barb Setting, Bucks County Pa.

We love it here!

The owners, Joseph and Eileen were very accomodating . The Terrace is perfect for us as we have 2 toddlers and climbing up and down the steps would be a nightmare for 2 very young kids. The suite has everything you need. And a big plus for us is it’s just a minute walk to Washington Street mall and 2 minutes walk to the beach and just seconds to our favorite restaurant (Mad Batter). We love sitting on the porch. We like how the parlor has children’s books. There’s a hose outside to clean your shoes/feet but there’s also an outside shower if you have more sand to wash...Own parking is a huge plus too. Overall, it’s a very enjoyable experience.We’ll come back!

Great stay, great hosts!

My son and I had a lovely stay in the Terrace Suite. It's a comfortable space, and everything felt very clean upon arrival. It's a 1 minute walk into town and a 1 minute walk to the beach. The location can't be beat! Eileen and Joe are excellent hosts. They are very communicative and were incredibly accommodating with a snafu on my part. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. Thanks, Eileen and Joe!

Christmas in Cape May

Just returned from a lovely Christmas weekend at the Terrace Suite. The unit was perfect for a family of 4 adults! Literally steps away from the beach and shopping/dining!

Perfect Vacation for our family

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 vehicle and a quick tour. They were truly fabulous to work with, were very forthcoming with all of the details of the place, were generous down-to-earth people, and very flexible with how we wished to pay. The suite is in the perfect location to park your car onsite and be within walking distance to the beach, mall, Acme, restaurants and, of course, Colliers :) We absolutely loved the front porch. My husband and I read and had coffee there each morning and would end each evening there as I would wait for the horses and carriages to come by. We did have one day of storms however were able to also enjoy the porch on that day watching the rain come down. We have stayed s lot of places in Cape May over the last 17 years and have to say that The Terrace Suite is definitely our favorite place thus far.

Lovely visit

Really enjoyed our stay in the terrace suite. Condo was clean and updated very pretty. It was extremely easy to deal with Eileen, the owner. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because we had to bring our own sheets and towels. Not a big deal, just not used to that. Over all, we had a wonderful weekend and couldn't be in a better location. We walked to everything. Would definitely return. Thank you!

Terrace Suite is Sweet!!!

We stayed in the Terrace on October 2-5, 2014. We could not have had a nicer place to stay. It is so clean and updated and convenient to everything. We never moved our car, we walked everywhere we wanted to go. We spent lots of time sitting on the porch just watching the people and in the evening watching the carriages come by. We were able to meet the owners of the other condos because they were staying that same weekend. They were so nice and helpful. Eileen who is the owner of the Terrace is so sweet and helpful; Anything I wanted to know before the trip she answered almost immediately by phone or email and the same when we were at the Terrace. We had a question and had to call her and she called back almost immediately. We will definitely be staying again.

Great memories made at the Terrace Suite!

We recently spent a "girls weekend away" in charming Cape May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Terrace Suite on much sought after Historic Jackson St. It is totally convenient to everything you could possibly wish to do while in Cape May. You can literally park your car and forget about it until you depart. The Terrace was lovely and very well appointed on the interior, complete with a kitchen and lovely bedrooms and bath and the accessories to go with it. Eileen was wonderful to work with, answering all our questions and I would highly recommend Terrace Suite for your stay in Victorian Cape May! Julie - Hanover,Pa.

Thanksgiving at the Terrace

My husband, daughter, and I have stayed at the Terrace a few times now; this past week was the first stay since Joe & Eileen became the owners. They were wonderful throughout the entire process, from reserving the room to guiding us into check-in. The renovations they have made were definitely noticed - great color choices and tasteful decor. The suite was perfectly clean and well outfitted with all kitchen necessities, including a Keurig! We love that it is ground level - no stairs to climb. The wifi worked great. I believe it is the only Puffin suite that has a bathtub, which my daughter loved. The bed I slept in was very comfy. I could easily stay for a month+! We look forward to our next stay at the Terrace. You can't beat the location and quality. Thank you, Joe & Eileen, for a great stay! Many blessings of success with this suite!

Terrace Suite--Great with young kids

We spent a long weekend in April in the Terrace Suite with our boys--ages 1 & 4. The first floor location is very convenient, and we could easily maneuver the stroller into the hallway between the inner and outer doors. Keyless code entry was so helpful--no worries about who has the key/card. We also loved the convenience of two separate bedrooms (great for nap time), and the kitchen area made meals and snacks easy. The suite felt homey and inviting. We all enjoyed it. The location was perfect--beach and shopping within walking distance. The owners' phone call and email instructions were quite helpful, as we did not meet the innkeepers during our stay. Backing into the parking spot was a little tricky the first time. Glad we arrived during the day. We would definitely stay there again.
