My husband and I had a wonderful romantic getaway. Rhythm of the Sea provided a casual welcoming environment. Breakfast was delicious and all dietary needs were graciously met. We looked forward to afternoon treats and beverages. The beach is only steps away from the front door. They have beach chairs, beach towels and bicycles for guests to use. A guest refrigerator is on the first floor so we were able to keep our wine and cheese available for a pre dinner experience with other guests. There are many seating areas for guests to socialize.I highly recommend this B&B.

The view from all the rooms are fantastic! I snooped around to see out windows! We stayed in one the front rooms which had fantastic view and room was very large as was the bathroom! It was very comfortable with air conditioning & ceiling fan. Breakfast done by outstanding chef had 3 of the breakfasts here, all was great! Location us directly across the street with plenty of insite parking. And the best part was how fantastic our hosts were ROBYN and MISTY were so warm and welcoming every day! They treated us like we were the only guests there! LOVED it here, and dud not want to leave! My husband and I will definitely return! Highly recommend!!!

We never stayed at a B&B before and heard horror stories about hearing the neighboring rooms. I hardly ever heard a peep! Room was clean, bed comfortable and view was nice from our room. The Breakfast was amazing! Enjoyed the old house living and feeling relaxed while there. When we came home from the beach there would be fresh cookies and tea and lemonade, we got spoiled! Only little problem was the water pressure in our shower, but didn't say anything because it wasn't that important, i figured it was an old house. I would definitely go back!
4.6 on August 10, 2017
This was our 9th visit to Rhythm of the Sea in 10 years and we can't wait to go back. The location is perfect -- steps from the beach, close enough to the action to walk, far away enough for some peace and quiet. The porch is the perfect place to have a glass of wine, read, nap or just be. Breakfasts are always delicious, and different tastes are accommodated. Rooms are always spotless. Beach chairs and towels available for use. I can't rave about this place enough. See you soon, Robyn!
4.2 on August 07, 2017
Lovely and peaceful. Large room, large bathroom but a small shower. Breakfast was exquisite every one of the four days there. Staff was wonderful. Maids service was very good. Practically across from beach access. We love this B& B.
4.8 on August 06, 2017
This was our second stay at Rhythm of the Sea and both stays were wonderful? The owner and staff are just the right amount of friendly without being around all of the time. The breakfasts were delicious and there were refreshments available in the afternoons. The location is the best since the beach is right across the street. And we appreciated the beach towels and beach chairs that they made available. We met a lot of nice friendly people at breakfast too. One of our favorite places to stay.
4.6 on August 03, 2017
This is our home away from home during the year's we do not do destination travel. Robyn and her staff are always warm and welcoming. It is a quiet, relaxing B&B which provides the atmosphere we are seeking when looking to unwind from our hectic work lives. Their breakfasts are wonderful as well.
4.8 on July 31, 2017
I love this B&B. The airyness of the first floor, the proximity to the beach, the pool table, the delicious breakfasts, the cleanliness. We went elsewhere once and were very disappointed, so will keep coming back. The owner, Robyn, is very interesting and nice. Never a disappointment.
4.6 on July 02, 2017
Very hospitable, great location, beautiful property and grounds, will definitely be back.
4.6 on June 08, 2017
This was our first get away as a couple and we had a wonderful time. Rhythm of the Sea is truly a magical place and we would go back in a heart beat. As a matter of fact we're planning another visit in August!!! Our host Robin was incredible and made us feel very welcome. The house itself is beautiful and comfortable and has a very relaxing air to it. Bikes, beach chairs and towels are all there for your enjoyment and use. And the breakfast is amazing. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. We would highly recommend you visit. Thank you Robin!!!
4.6 on May 06, 2017
A great location away from the main downtown hustle and bustle. Room #1 has a great balcony overlooking the ocean. This is the second time we've stayed in this room. Common areas are incredible as are the breakfasts. We'll be back!
5 on May 03, 2017
This B and B is beautiful, comfortable and breakfast was absolutely fantastic. We loved the Rythm of the sea!! Misty was very helpful and lovely.
5 on April 05, 2017
Amazing views even in the rain. Rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is one of the best we've ever had at a b & b! Vintage pooltable and fireplace make it even cozier!
5 on March 26, 2017
We stayed one night in the ocean front balcony. We had an amazing time , and we can't wait to come back. The food at breakfast was wonderful. I highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea
5 on March 09, 2017
I stayed here in February when most of Cape May is closed for winter. Had the whole house to myself. Hostess Misty was very nice, made me feel right at home. Room #1 is very comfy with a balcony and ocean view. The breakfast was outstanding. I'll be back.
4.8 on February 22, 2017
We stayed in the oceanfront room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. There was a pool table which was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast was delicious and the host was delightful! We will definitely be back!
5 on January 09, 2017
This was our first time staying at the Rhythm of the Sea and we will definitely be back! We made last minute reservations for New Years, had a wonderful room with a fireplace. We were out during the day and when we arrived back there was a small bottle of champagne along with glasses, hats and noise makers (a really cute surprise!). A little way out of town but nice because you are away from the noise of the crowds but still on the beach! Hope to come back in warmer weather and take advantage of the bicycles!
4.8 on January 01, 2017
A wonderful get away to relieve holiday stress. The breakfasts are delicious. Mindy was friendly and helpful. She gave us some great recommendations of things to do and see. I would definitely go back!!
4.2 on November 16, 2016
A return visit, and the same high standard as before. Rooms are adequate, bathrooms are good, location is excellent - we could bike (free for guests!) everywhere we needed to be. Breakfast is adequate, but there aren't many (any?) choices. Would recommend to others....
3.2 on October 30, 2016
We always look forward to our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. Great facilities, wonderful staff, and caring owner. This was our third stay at Rhythm's and, therefore, our ratings reflect the level of service and comfort we expect. It is consistently excellent and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway at a reasonable price.
4.8 on October 23, 2016
We are repeat guests at this beautiful bed and breakfast located directly across the street from the beach. This Victorian styled home has been preserved to respect the time period it was built and has integrated modern technology to ensure guest comfort. The beds are comfortable and the views from the rooms are incredible. The owner is an executive chef so breakfast is always well planned, cooked to perfection and presented like a 5 star restaurant would present. We plan on returning next year too.
4.4 on October 18, 2016
amazing experience. very friendly folks. Nice crowd and great breakfast.
4.2 on October 17, 2016
This is our third stay at Rhythm of the Sea -- our favorite B&B in south Jersey! The on-site manager was friendly, helpful, and courteous. The owners are committed to providing guests with the best experience possible. They do, as well! That is why we were back for our third visit and expect to be there for a fourth. We are not alone in embracing the value proposition that Rhythm offers. On our most recent stay, we connected with another couple who also had stayed there when we last did more than one year ago. I believe we both made the right call. Two days to relax and enjoy Cape May in the quiet of October. Very nice!
5 on October 13, 2016
If you are looking for a GREAT getaway...look no further. This is your destination for a great, amazing getaway. The rooms are large and clean. The food is scrumptious. The views of the ocean are fabulous. Close to all restaurants and events. Modern clean bicycles for toodling around the town. We always get melancholy on our departure, only because we had another amazing time and always cannot wait until our annual fall trip the following year. See you guys again soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you....for another great time spent at your Inn.
5 on October 09, 2016
Loved staying here. The free use of bikes was greatly appreciated. Also loved being able to walk across street to the beach
5 on October 02, 2016
This inn is outstanding! The rooms are beautiful and the service you get us outstanding. It is directly across from the beach and sitting on the front porch is so relaxing and peaceful. They have homemade treats put out every afternoon with lemonade or iced tea. I wouldn't stay any other place in Cape May!
5 on September 25, 2016
Wonderful place to stay. We will come back.
5 on September 21, 2016
What a location and what a staff. Breakfast was creative and succulent. And they even gave seconds. Room was clean and promptly. By the time breakfast was over the room was as clean as when we arrived. The ladies that operate the Inn are superb in every way. A much heralded thank you to Robyn and Mindy. Ken and Karen
3.8 on September 21, 2016
We definitely enjoyed our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. The exterior is Swiss Chalet. The interior is all Craftsman. Unlike many inns, the common spaces here invite use, either just a couple or to chat with the innkeeper and other guests, The room was comfortable ans serviceable. The breakfasts were very good. Robyn is warm and friendly and knows how to balance mingling with the guests with not intruding on the guests' experience. It is as close to "on the beach" as it gets in Cape May, and is away from some of the crowd spots. The drawback on location is that is a bit more of a walk to anything other than the beach than we expected, which was fine for us but perhaps not for some guests. Definitely worth a visit.

Comfortable, roomy and quiet

Had a wonderful time at Rhythm of the Sea. The décor is very inviting and the staff exceptional and professional. Will definitely make this our "go to" whenever we visit Cape May!!!!!!!!!!!!
4.8 on September 06, 2016
Absolutely beautiful B & B, perfectly situated, and a wonderful hostess. Breakfast was delicious. Hopefully going to be back there next summer.
3.8 on August 29, 2016
It is our 8th year staying at Rhythm of the Sea. We always feel comfortable here. Staff is always helpful and ready to make your stay personal and special.
4.8 on August 21, 2016
We loved that bikes and beach towels were provided. The coffee/tea bar was a great attribute, and breakfast was delicious.
5 on August 19, 2016
My husband and I were looking for a totally relaxing vacation. Robyn and the Inn were so inviting and comfortable we look forward to going back, often. The breakfasts were very different and incredibly delicious. We asked to extend our stay an extra day, and it was arranged within 5 minutes. Every room was clean and comfortable. We highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea.
5 on August 17, 2016
Tranquil, refreshing, clean, perfectly eloquent. This was our first "empty nest" vacation and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of Rhythm of the Sea. The location could not be better: directly across the street from the beach, yet just a quick bike ride or walk away from charming downtown Cape May. Breakfasts were full breakfasts, not just a croissant and coffee. They were very, very delicious and varied from day to day. Bikes, beach chairs and beach towels are provided. (It's the little things like that on vacation that are so great!) Our favorite was sitting on the front porch, coffee in hand and watching Cape May "wake up" while we were waiting for breakfast to be served. Each day after breakfast we returned to our room to find our beds freshly made and the room cleaned up. (Be sure to tip your housekeeping staff ... they do a great job.) We WILL be back!
3.8 on August 10, 2016
wonderful spot to enjoy the quiet pleasures of Cape May
4.4 on August 09, 2016
I went to Rhythm of the Sea in Cape May with my parents for a short break and we had a very enjoyable stay. The manager, Misty, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The food was excellent, and we enjoyed long afternoons on the porch with delicious lemonade and baked goods. I would highly recommend this interesting place, right on the seafront, as a great base for exploring Cape May.
3.4 on July 31, 2016
Rhythm of the Sea is a lovely bed and breakfast across the street from the ocean - with a relaxing porch and lobby and clean rooms. The food was OK (mediocre cookies at tea time and no options for breakfast). Overall - a great place.
4.4 on July 28, 2016
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. This was our first visit to Cape May and we had a great time. We enjoyed the free use of the bikes at Rhythm of the Sea (ROS) and the shopping in Cape May was fun. The decor and vibe at ROS are beautiful and relaxing. The breakfast food was delicious though more protein options would be even greater. In the common area of the house, the refrigerator to keep our wine in and the Keurig coffee maker available 24-7 were very convenient. All of our questions were answered warmly and quickly by Misty or Robyn. Wifi signal was very weak in our room but better in the downstairs common areas. Around town, we were somewhat frustrated by trying to get into most of the restaurants we wanted to dine at but found some other ones that were nice just the same. Overall we had a great 3-night stay.
4.4 on July 20, 2016
The place could not have been more perfect. Robyn is a gracious hostess and we thoroughly enjoyed the location and the balcony for our room. Breakfasts were delicious. We wanted a quieter location away from the main activity and the distance was perfect for us to get to town when we wanted by walking but without the crowded and loud beaches, bars and shopping overwhelming our stay. Robyn struck the perfect balance between welcoming but not too involved in our stay. Would love to return next year!
4.4 on July 17, 2016
I spent several very pleasant days at Rythm of the Sea. The location -- right across from the beach, and an easy walk to the center of Cape May -- was perfect. Breakfasts were excellent, as were the service and amenities (pool table, bicycles, beach chairs and towels). Highly recommended.
4.0 on July 11, 2016
We had a comfy, lovely stay. Room was clean and comfortable with a great view of the beach and ocean. Breakfast was delicious and very filling and Robyn was pleasant and accommodating.

Loved everything about Rhythm of the Sea except our room choice. It was one of the smaller rooms (#7) in the house and the footboard stuck out causing my husband to hit his shin several times during our stay. The bathroom was nice size but not much space to layout your toiletries. I would recommend rooms #1&2 (having full ocean views) or #4 was a lovely room. The Inn's location to the beach is ideal, although a further walk to shops and restaurants. If you are a walker you won't mind the distance to the mall & restaurants. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Rhythm of the Sea and plan to go back! Robyn is warm and welcoming too and the breakfast was fresh and delicious each morning, especially enjoyed the breakfast burrito with fresh homemade salsa. There was a simplicity about this Inn that I really liked and it is located in a quiet but beautiful part of Cape May.
Thank you for taking the time to review our Inn after your recent stay. So sorry about the shin bang! I usually point that out as I have done it myself. When I ordered the bed with no footboard, to not block the beach view from bed, I did not realize the corners would stick out like that. Stickley makes solid furniture, which you felt. We would look forward to welcoming you back to try another room. You can't surround yourself with too much simplicity!

Robyn is an excellent inn keeper and is great with guests. The B&B is charming, and accommodations are in the arts and crafts style. Bathroom are small; preferred using my own toiletries as theirs were very medicinal smelling. Breakfast is very good, and there is always coffee/tea available. For first-time visitors, note that all places on Beach Ave. are on a fairly heavily trafficked road w/parking meters on the street. None of the B&Bs or hotels are actually "on" the beach. Parking for Rhythm of the Sea is free/on site, and there are beach towels and beach chairs you may take to the beach, as well as bicycles to ride. Note: Cape May beach is not free - everyone has to have a pass on the beach, and this is not included in the price of the B&B, though some hotels provide passes. $12 for a 3-day pass or pay by the day.
We appreciate your review. Sorry you did not appreciate our Essential Elements amenities. They are infused with essential oils of rosemary and mint that stimulates and refreshes mind, body and spirit! With regards to the beach tags, no establishment in Cape May is able to offer their guests beach tags. This is illegal to do as they are non transferable.

my husband and I spent 3 day weekend at Rhythm of the Sea. It is such a peaceful and relaxing weekend,. We were able to see the ocean from our room and able to hear the waves roll in. Out breakfasts were delicious! Jodi welcomed us like we were one of the family and we just felt comfortable from the moment we arrived. Beautiful breeze on the porch. Able to take the bikes and ride into town.
We are so pleased you enjoyed all we have to offer!

Fabulous B&B - Hospitality was exceptional - we booked last minute, Robyn was there for all of our needs, the rooms are very well appointed and meticulous. They have great beach bike for your use. The main area is warm and comfy with a pool table and porch that out looks the ocean, I would go back in a heartbeat!
My heartbeat skipped reading your review! We would look forward to welcoming you back.

Rhythm of the Sea is a top notch B&B with a great location. The serene atmosphere, the delicious full breakfast, and the gracious innkeepers make this a perfect place to recharge and take full advantage of oceanside views. Situated across from the beach, it's within walking distance to great restaurants and shops and just a short drive from local attractions. Felt like we were staying in a friend's beautiful home.
3.8 on June 02, 2016
I loved this beautiful Arts & Crafts home on Beach Ave. It's a great alternative to all the Victorian B&B's. The hosts were extremely nice. I would definitely stay there again.
We love being the odd kid on the block! We hope you will stay with us again soon.
- Robyn (innkeeper)

I have stayed at plenty of bed & breakfast places but never stayed at one as nice as this one. From the food to the service to cleanliness. I literally can't complain about anything when it comes to this stay. We will definitely be back again!! ::)
Thank you for your kind review! We will definitely be here when you come back.
- Robyn (innkeeper)

The architecture was beautiful and the staff was outstanding. Jodie was a delight to deal with helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The location was perfect and the morning breakfast was gourmet!! Also, loved having the bicycles to ride! We mentioned our marriage and they upgraded our room!! Very conscientious staff and owner! Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words. Congratulations again on your marriage!

This is a lovely old fashioned place with a lot of charme and atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner and the innkeeper were very friendly and helpful.
Yup! This old girl is 100 years old (the Inn, not me ;-) The Arts and Crafts period was post Victorian, for what Cape May is most well known for, so we are still the new kid on the block!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Rhythm of the Sea in Cape May, N.J. Robin the owner was the perfect hostess! And the room was lovely and the breakfasts were delicious and well presented!

Rhythm of the Sea provides a calm and tranquil oasis for those looking to relax and just enjoy life. Rooms are beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and Jodi and Robyn are the best! This is our new go-to place to relax and get away!
Awesome! Thank you for your gracious review. Our best compliment is when you return!

Loved this b&b for an over night stay for Exit 0 Jazz Fest. Rooms were clean and neat, breakfast was yummy and owners were very sweet.
4.2 on May 07, 2016
This is our third visit to Rhythm of the Sea, and we were again completely satisfied with the accommodations and great service. My partner originally found this place because when he said he wanted to go to the shore in February to do birdwatching, I said I wanted a B&B with an in-room fireplace! I follow a vegan diet which the staff have always been able to accommodate, and they create delicious breakfasts. Other perks include the ocean view sun porch, pool table and board games (in case the weather does not cooperate). Quick drive to birding hotspots -- Cape May Bird Observatory, Rea Farm, and Cape May Point State Park.
Third time a charm! We look forward to stay #4. Cape May is a year 'round resort.

We met friends there on their recommendation. It more than lived up to our expectations. The furnishings are in the style of the house and were very conducive to good conversation in the public rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the room furnishings were welcoming and comfortable too. Breakfasts were good and we were able to wait for dinner for our next meal. The view can't be beat. Jody welcomed us and is very personable and easy to talk to. I recommend it without reservation. It's very popular so reserve early!
Thank you for your kind review!

Loved the stay. Nice pool table. French toast with fresh berries was awesome
3.4 on April 14, 2016
We had a wonderful stay at Rhythm of the Sea, despite the weather...a bit cold and rainy. both Robyn and Jodi were very nice and pleasant. Unlike most other B&B's however, they both seemed not to interact with their guests. I guess I was expecting more conversation about things to see and do in the area. that was not a problem for us, however, but if you are looking for this sort of help, might not find it here. Loved the house and the décor, absolutely beautiful. One minor note, there were only 2 bath towels in our bathroom. If it's a couple, like us, the woman is definitely going to want 2 towels...one for hair and one for body :). Again, a minor detail. Breakfast was delicious, plenty of fruit! Coffee....just ok. I would stay their again, off peak season is nice since less people and free parking! yeah. the trolley tour was excellent. the two elderly men (driver and tour guide) were perfect for this job. enjoyed them both.
4.2 on March 29, 2016
We visited for our wedding anniversary and it was very nice ... a bit quiet, since there was only one other couple in residence ... but very nice. My only nitpick, and it's just that, is that the television in our room was about the size of a computer screen. All the other rooms had standard-sized TVs. Didn't matter because we weren't there to watch television but it's worth a note for the next person who might come along. Otherwise, nice place; nice location; nice view; and really nice service from Jodie who also prepared a delicious breakfast.
5 on March 14, 2016
We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful inn over the weekend. It is in a fabulous location right across the street from the ocean with convenient parking and within walking distance to several restaurants for dinner. It was immaculate. A very cozy enviorment . The rooms were very nice. The bathrooms were spacious and clean. Jodie fixed us a delicious pancake breakfast and was more than happy to adjust the menu for my husband. This was our first time to Cape May but would love to come back and would definitely choose the Rhythm of the Sea again.
4.8 on March 02, 2016
As a very busy director of a local non-profit and a mother of three my husband and I were seeking a revitalizing weekend within a short ride of our Toms River home. Being a "beach lover" my attention was immediately drawn to Rhythm of the Sea; a beachfront B&B that clearly sang a song of peace, relaxation and nature. From the moment we arrived we knew that this was the anecdote for revitalizing our bodies, soul and marriage; great home-made breakfast, jogging on the beach, bike riding to the lighthouse, delicious dinners, fun shopping and most of all...warm hospitality! We are already booking our return trip :)
5 on February 24, 2016
This is a wonderful, comfortable inn. Rhythm of the Sea is just the epitome of relaxation. The rooms are wonderfully appointed and comfortable, the service is impeccable, the food is fabulous and the innkeepers are warm and welcoming. You could not find a better spot in Cape May! Frankly, this Inn stands above most others in the state of New Jersey!
5 on January 05, 2016
WE REALLY LIKED RHYTHM, PEOPLE NICE, RIGHT ON BEACH, GOOD BREAKFAST. I LOVED WATCHING DOLPHINS IN THE MORNING WITH A CUP OF COFFEE ON THE BALCONY. WE COULDN'T ENJOY THINGS AS MUCH AS WE WOULD HAVE LIKED DUE TO SOME LINGERING HEALTH ISSUES, SO ANOTHER VISIT IS IN ORDER...
4.8 on January 03, 2016
This is the second stay at Rhythm of the Sea at this time of year. We returned because we enjoyed ourselves so much the previous year. Cape May is quiet with yet many holiday activities still going on. The weather is still on the warmer side allowing beach walks directly across the street. The house is sweetly decorated for Christmas and the gas fireplaces in our room and in the large main room are a seasonal plus. We love to play pool on the great old pool table and breakfast is a real treat in the spacious dining room. Rhythm of the Sea is both a comfortable and inviting retreat from the hustle bustle of the season.
5 on December 24, 2015
We had the best time! The food was excellent and everyone involved from the time we made the reservation until checkout was very nice. We cant wait to return next year!
5 on October 28, 2015
The inn was just beautiful! Loved our room, so comfy and cozy. Looking forward to returning.

We recently stayed at Rhythm of the Sea in Cape May for a one night getaway and truly enjoyed our night. Jodi was welcoming on the phone and graciously greeted us when we arrived. Absolutely beautiful weather enhanced our time. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality. We will be back.
5 on September 22, 2015
Rhythm of the Sea is the best B&B I ever stayed at. They took care of all my needs and the food was out of this world. You walked out the front door the Jersey Shore was there. There was even great restaurants within walking distance. If you didn't want to drive, there were bicycles available for use. I would recommend R/S for anyone at anytime.
4.2 on September 19, 2015
This is a gem of a B&B, located on the ocean, within walking distance to town but but with enough distance for peace and quiet. Service is outstanding and the rooms are beautiful. An ideal special occasion or weekend getaway choice!
5 on September 16, 2015
For the last 10 yrs. I make it a point to come back home to RBTS. Personal, warm and loving is the way you are made to feel at this place. No other B n B has made me feel this way ever. Be sure to experience this feeling at RBTS.
4.4 on August 26, 2015
Our first time in Cape May and we couldn't have been happier with our choice on where to stay. We loved everything about our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. We stayed in the Carriage House Room which is very spacious and comfortable. We felt like we were coming home every night instead of going back to a hotel room. The breakfast we had every morning was delious and they accommodated my husbands Gluten Allergy, which is a big plus for us. They have bikes to ride, towels for the beach and beach chairs for you to use. You can also rent beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach for a fee. The staff was friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the minute we arrived. We will definitely return to Rhythm of the Sea soon and would recommend to friends And family.
5 on August 23, 2015
It was just a lovely vacation. The Inn is beautiful, and clean, actually spotless. It's just steps away from the beach entrance. The Innkeeper was very warm and friendly, breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. We had room 7, which has a side view of the beach. We sat on the porch in the afternoons, which always had a beautiful breeze. the Inn was filled,!but it never seemed crowded. I can't wait to go back.
3.6 on August 06, 2015
My wife and I just spent a few days and had a very good visit. While it 'may' appear that my ratings aren't that great..they are based on the very high expectations we had coming into our stay. So...Saying it 'met my expectations' ...a 3...is a compliment and 4 is saying something special. It's right across the street from the beach and a very short walk (seconds not minutes) to the beach entrance. The included breakfast was very good and the overall stay was exactly what we were hoping for. Will definitely go back if heading to Cape May!
4.0 on August 06, 2015
Our stay at the Rhythm of the Sea was beyond our expectations. The staff was welcoming, accommodating, and extremely pleasant. The breakfast each morning rival that of a 5-star restaurant's meal. Simply outstanding. We will definitely go back!

We recently spent 2 nights (wish it was longer) and couldn't have been happier. This bed and breakfast has a beach house feel which was great! Loved that they had a pool table and their porch was fantastic! Breakfasts were great! Location was in the quieter side of beachfront cape may with easy access to the beach across the street. Bikes are available for free. Loved our stay and would come back again!

The place is wonderful in so many ways-tranquil, wonderful breakfast and afternoon desserts, Jodi and Robyn are the nicest people , and I would go back in a heartbeat! Will surely make more visits in the future! Thanks for the most wonderful place to stay! Sherry & Scott Zeigler
Thank you for your nice words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed having you both as our guests. Can't wait to see you back again...and again!

Robyn and Wolfgang, the proprietors are wonderful hosts. Additionally, the usual on-site host, Jody, is personable and helpful in meeting the guests' needs. The breakfasts at this B&B are always anticipated -- imaginative presentation and great tasting food. They accommodate any special dietary needs. Great time!

I stayed in the Oasis room - the only negative thing I could say about this B&B is the mattress was hard on the back - it's either time for a new mattress (top of the line) OR invest in some of the memory foam pads.
Thank you for your comment regarding our mattress being too hard for you. We did invest in double pillow top mattresses recently and they are firm, for good support. I usually have thick quilted mattress pads for the extra layer of softness, but I myself use a memory foam pad so I think that is a great idea! Thank you for choosing Rhythm of the Sea for your getaway stay and we would look forward to welcoming you back.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rhythm of the Sea bed and breakfast in late April 2015. We were extremely fortunate to have an amazing weekend weather wise, so the closeness in proximity to the beach was wonderful. We utilized the bicycles provided by RoS to ride into the center of town, which we loved! The room was beautifully decorated and clean. And Jodi couldn't have been more helpful during our stay. We can't wait to go back for another weekend getaway. If you stay at the Rhythm of the Sea, you won't regret it!
Thank you for your kind words! Aren't those bikes great!! You can tell we all like what we do and feel so fortunate to have wonderful guests stay with us. We look forward to greeting you again, and again! Have a great summer.

An awesome place to enjoy a romantic and relaxing weekend. Our host Jody was great and our breakfasts were delish!
We are so glad you were pleased with your stay! Look forward to seeing you again soon.

He got out the bkes and got them ready for us to ride ...The B&B is so peaceful and relaxing . We booked room 1 and it has a small balcony with ocean views . Just beautiful!!!!

We were pleased with our stay, from the time of arrival to the time of departure. My husband enjoyed the quiet, relaxing atmosphere throughout the home, the privacy of the rooms and the lovely decorations. One of our favorite things was the breakfast! It was delicious and above our expectations. I highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea to any one looking for a bed and breakfast in Cape May.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. Glad hubby enjoyed it. We have peaceful privacy any time you are in need.
- Robyn Wendt (innkeeper)
4.8 on March 02, 2015
From the very 1st phone call, Jodie, was more than helpful! His help and understanding of our situation was above and beyond! Our room and the house were extremely comfortable. Our visit with family and friends was made so special! Thank you, Jodie! We will surely recommend the Rhythm of the Sea and hope to return! Gratefully, John & Michele, Cape Cod
We love our Winter guests! The beach is so special at that time of the year. It sounds like you all had a great time and we are glad you found Jodie accommodating to all your needs. We would love to see you again, any time of the year!

first time staying down in cape may.. was a little nervous about staying in a bed and breakfast but it was a great experience. service was great, rooms were cozy, if we needed anything it was there for us. i would go back and already recommended it to people
See! We are not so scary. You are a natural B&B'er!

Jodi the Inn Keeper was so nice and helpful..
We are so thankful for Jodie! He is the perfect Innkeeper and we know our guests are in the best hands.

We were there for the Valentine weekend for a quick getaway. As usual Jody was a great host and makes you feel right at home. Even with the 60mph winds and 9 degree weather, we were toasty warm. Breakfast is always delicious and we are never rushed through. This was our 3rd stay and we would certainly recommend Rhythm of the Sea to anyone.
Oh, boy! Third time's a charm. We are thankful that you braved the winter chill for your visit. Thank goodness for those huge radiators!! Looking forward to #4, and more.
- Robyn Wendt (innkeeper)

My fiance` and I stayed here during a weekend in January. We wanted a nice quiet weekend and that's exactly what we experienced. Jodie was great, he catered to our needs for breakfast and provided us with suggestions for dinner, etc. We had a much needed wonderful and relaxing weekend. Thank you for everything!
Yup, you can pretty much be guaranteed a quiet stay in January! So glad you enjoyed yourselves. Congratulations on your engagement...we cater intimate weddings ;-)

Very nice. We stayed the weekend before Christmas to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Right on the beach in a very quiet area of Cape May. This would be great in the summer.
It's Summer! Come on down...

My first solo get away. Just what the doctor ordered! Beautiful inside and out. Great location. Delicious breakfast, and friendly faces. Thank you!!
Good for you! More people should take your lead. Thanks for your nice words. We look forward to your return visit.

The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.
5 on October 16, 2014
This is a very well kept B&B that is just a few feet from the beach at Cape May. The staff is very customer focused and they can't do enough for their guests. The room we stayed in was decorated with mission style furniture and the bed was extremely comfortable. Huge windows allow you to overlook the picturesque Atlantic Ocean. The dining setting is not formal but intimate. The other guests we sat with seem to enjoy their stay as much as we did. I would stay at the Rhythm of the Sea again.
Thank you for your very nice review. I would stay here reading your words! We appreciate it.
- Robyn Wendt (innkeeper)

We stayed the weekend of September 19 - 21, 2014. We arrived & there was Iced Tea & cookies waiting for us. The room & bathroom was clean. This B & B is very convenient to the beach & the weather was great. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee, reading & just relaxing. The breakfast was ok I ate it but I would not have ordered Waffle with Whipped & Strawberries, Eggs Benedict I do not care for, Blueberry Pancakes would have been better with Blueberry Syrup. I did not eat the Turkey Bacon & would not eat that anywhere. The breakfast could be improved or maybe another choice. We would stay here again because it is so convenient. We had a good time!
Hello and thank you for your review but we are sorry that we seem to have missed the mark for your tastes in breakfast. We are more than happy to accommodate most requests in altering the menu with just a little warning. Give us another try and let us know your preferences so we make sure you enjoy everything we have to offer.

The place was great. Perfect Location to everything. The room was very nice and simple. The food was delicious in the mornings and they had fresh fruit every day to enjoy when you needed a snack. Everyone was super nice and helpful. They offered beach chairs and bikes to use daily. My wife and I stayed for our 1 year anniversary and we plan to be back a few more times in the future. I would rate this place 10 out of 10!
3.8 on September 28, 2014
Only disappointment was the bathroom was tiny in room 1 great views however. The staff was excellent. Service good. Prices Steep for off season. Good for weekend or mid week getaway. Lots to do they provide bikes and beach equipment. Would go back.
3.8 on September 21, 2014
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The porch and sun room was a favorite spot to relax in the early mornings and late afternoon to enjoy the beach views and watch the night sky. We liked that it was not too close to town, but easily accessible with restaurants within walking distance. Cape May beaches are lovely.
5 on September 16, 2014
This is a lovely spot across from the beach. It is dated 1915 and the rooms are very quiet due to the solid construction. The staff is attentive without being intrusive. We felt very welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious and plentiful and there is tea and coffee available all day and snacks at tea time. The other guests could not have been nicer. There are several really good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Also, easy walk to Ocean Ave shops. We did not have to use our car while there. Would definitely go back! Love this place.
4.0 on September 14, 2014
Charming sea-side house with excellent service. Recommend it highly with two caveats: Bring light bulbs if you want to read in your room; Bring bar soap for the shower (unless you think "gel" gets you clean).
4.4 on August 18, 2014
Great location right on Beach Ave. Able to see the water and walk across the street right onto the beach. Delicious cooked breakfasts each morning. Beach chairs, towels and bicycles all included in room rate.
5 on August 18, 2014
We love coming down to Cape May for our summer vacation. We only stay at Rhythm of the Sea. It's so relaxing, very warm and friendly. Can't wait to go back!
5 on August 15, 2014
Great time staying at Rhythm of the Sea as always! Thanks again -Michael & Deb
4.4 on August 12, 2014
My husband and I have been going to Rhythm of the Sea since 2007, even spent our honeymoon here. It's the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. The atmosphere, the location and the food are just amazing. Rooms are impeccable, staff is always courteous and helpful, and the beautiful, breezy front porch is usually the highlight of our stay; perfect for reading, snoozing, or enjoying a glass of wine after dinner while listening to the waves crash across the street. I would never stay anywhere else in Cape May.
4.8 on August 10, 2014
What a Beautiful Inn, from the time we arrived to leaving,we had a lovely time,the room had a sea view,just a walk across the road to beach,chairs,towels and bike's to use,was a delight,then in the afternoon, tea and homemade bakes.All the staff made us so welcome,very relaxing Inn,with wonderful breakfasts.Just one thing they might think about for oversea guest's maybe a safe for our passports, etc.Thank you all for making our Anniversary trip special.xx

Mid summer get a way Great place very pleased
5 on August 04, 2014
This was our 5th year coming to this B & B. The owners Wolfgang and Robyn along with Jodie managing innkeeper have been nothing less than superb. I have recommended this wonderful place to others that I work with at MetLife Stadium and they raved about the experience. If you love a warm reception and cozy place to lay your head along with eating seven different breakfasts each week. With a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets than this is your place to be. We will be celebrating our 30th next year and we will be spending two lovely weeks here. From our first year to this year we have extended our stay by days initially we spent 7 days and now it is up to two weeks. The past two years we have taken our jackrussell/pug as we stay in the cottage house over the garage. You will love this place. Michael & Sandy Lipka

Beautiful place, nice rooms, clean, loved the bike usage, breakfast was very yummy... & Jodie was awesome host!!
4.6 on July 02, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. This was our first ever visit to Cape May, and we will definitely return. This property is located directly across the street from the beautiful beach, and they provide towels and beach chairs, in case you haven't brought your own. Breakfast was delicious and high quality. We had French toast the first morning, and eggs the second (bird's nest?). Cookies and light beverages were available in the afternoon, and coffee and tea are available 24 hours. There's an ice machine and ice buckets on the main level. The main level is so welcoming with many spots to sit and relax, and there's soft music playing most of the time. We definitely enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the not too distant future.
4.2 on June 30, 2014
Maybe it was the great weather. Or, maybe it was sitting on the porch looking out over the ocean. Or, maybe it was the friendly smile of Jodi, the innkeeper, or the delicious breakfast, or the beautifully landscaped gardens. Or, maybe it was all of the above! Whatever it was, we had a wonderful stay at the Rhythm of the Sea and would definitely recommend it.
2.6 on June 15, 2014
We stayed one night at this bed and breakfast and although it was clean and the breakfast was above expectations, we did not feel it was good value for money in comparison with other hotels we stayed at on our trip from the UK. The room was on the small side, the shower had very poor pressure and did not work well, the pillows on the bed were extremely full with no suitable alternatives, hence we did not sleep at all well and we felt that providing an envelope in the room suggesting that a tip was "thoughtful" was not appropriate. Like most people, we leave tips when we choose, based on our satisfaction with the service, etc. As previously mentioned the breakfast was superb, the host was polite and helpful and it was good to hear the ocean.
4.4 on June 12, 2014
Three terrific nights in a spacious room with a fantastic view and a balcony. A great nights sleep listening to the surf was followed each morning by a fantastic breakfast. It felt like being home only better. The bikes were a great added convenience. Everyone made us feel at home.
5 on June 04, 2014
This very nice comfortable place is run by very friendly, professional people. Not much more need to be said, period.
5 on May 22, 2014
We absolutely were enchanted with this charming bed and breakfast..it was our first visit and we loved every minute of our stay there. The service was outstanding, the bed was very comfortable, immaculate and clean room, the breakfasts were delicious and pleasing to the eye. We are looking forward to return to this wonderful place very soon. I cannot rate dining since it is a "bed and breakfast" place with no dining offered.
4.8 on May 21, 2014
Had a beautiful Cape May weekend in May....used the bikes to travel all over town, visit the lighthouse and harbor. Used the chairs and towels to lounge on the beach and enjoyed wonderful breakfasts! Would definitely go back!
4.8 on May 12, 2014
The "curb appeal" of Rhythm of the Sea is exceptional and is only exceeded by the care evident in the tasteful decor and cleanliness of the home. Jody, our on-site hose, was great -- courteous, responsive, and personable. The breakfast fare was exceptional for our three-night stay -- different breakfast entrees each day not overly ambitious, but nicely presented and filling. Rhythm of the Sea's amenities were a pleasant surprise -- chairs to take the beach and bikes to ride all over Cape May to enjoy the relative solitude of an early May visit as well as the city's extraordinary architecture and pristine beaches. We will definitely recommend Rhythm of the Sea to our friends and acquaintances and look forward to a return visit soon! John McQuaid Linda DeRemer Elverson, PA
4.8 on May 03, 2014
Our recent stay at Rhythm of the Sea was peaceful and quiet; just what we wanted! Robyn greeted us warmly and Jodie kept the coffee hot and plentiful. Breakfasts were varied (and delicious) each day and included eggs benedict, waffles with a fruit compote (superb), and eggs with spinach and salmon. The view from Room 1 allowed us to observe the ever changing surf and sea; a true respite from the "everyday". Thanks to all for a wonderful stay.
4.6 on May 01, 2014
graet time staff was amazing
4.8 on April 17, 2014
We took a chance in Rhythm of the Sea (found it on the internet) for a weekend getaway and it far exceeded our expectations. The owner, Robyn, was charming; the view from our room and proximity to the ocean was perfect; beach chairs and bikes were available and included in the price if our room; breakfasts were ample, friendly & delicious; we even had the chance to play a game of billboards next to the fireplace one evening. So much fun!
5 on March 25, 2014
We stayed in the carriage house which is not attached to the main building - it was perfect for us. Provided a little more privacy for the escape we wanted. The main building is perfect. Perfect front porch to enjoy coffee and/or wine on. An open floor plan allows for time to relax and even play some pool. The innkeepers were great and really helpful in knowing the area and recommending restaurants and breakfast was delicious !!!! We'll be back for sure!
3.8 on March 19, 2014
We had a wonderful stay, we were warmly greeted and given a quick tour, then shown to our room. The room was clean, bright and welcoming. After dinner, we enjoyed a few games of pool in the common area along with good conversation with some of the other guests. In the morning we enjoyed a fresh, delicious breakfast and there was always coffee and hot water ready. We would definitely come back!
4.2 on March 19, 2014
Wanting to get away for a weekend during the off-season we found Rhythm of the Sea. This B&B is a terrific site in a terrific location. A roomy house with nice size comfortable rooms is a location where we will return. The initial thought was that it was too expensive, but after our stay we agreed that it was well worth the money. Great location, great rooms, great service, great food, etc. I highly recommend staying at Rhythm of the Sea.
4.4 on March 11, 2014
My wife and I spent seven days here without children and the dog, that in itself was brilliant, then add the Rhythm of the Sea to this and paradise became a reality.
3.2 on March 08, 2014
Usually have a great time at Rhythm of the Sea, but this was clearly an exception. First, essentially no hot water during a weekend in February. New meaning to the term 'cold shower'! Pointed out the problem after the first morning, but it was still there the next day. Apparently hot water was fine in other parts of the building, but whatever was pumping/supplying hot water to our room wasn't working. The other surprise was children! Young children in the main building. Loud young children in the main building well into the evening. Young children whose parents put them on top of the pool table to roll the balls around. That was something we had not seen before. Understand families with children need a place to stay, but a quiet, older B&B is typically not the case. On the plus side, breakfasts were spectacular, as always. And we met interesting people, including one couple who we bonded with telling 'kids on the pool table!' stories.
3.4 on March 07, 2014
Jodie was very attentive and accomodating, thank you for a lovely weekend,
5 on February 12, 2014
Stayed there over the during the winter season. Cape May was really empty but that turned out to be really nice. Rooms are cozy, you're right on the water and fantastic service while you're there. Would recommend.
4.2 on January 01, 2014
Jodie was extememly helpful, professional, and friendly. The weather was perfect. The breakfasts were delicious. It was a great visit to Cape May and our first visit to Rhythm of the Sea.
5 on November 20, 2013
Jodi was a wonderful host and also a good rep for the Cape May businesses. It's a great getaway in the off season.
4.8 on November 15, 2013
Beautiful B&B, relaxing environment and surroundings. Great view from our room. Quiet but convenient location. We will definitely come back. What a great place to spend our anniversary!
4.4 on November 09, 2013
We have stayed in many Victorian B&B's so when we saw the Mission style details at Rhythm of the Sea we were sold on it. The reality is even better than the photos. We found there was great attention to detail, outstanding breakfasts, helpful information about Cape May, and relaxation galore at the Inn!
4.6 on November 06, 2013
Exceeded my expectations! It was an amazing experience and the comfort of home! The services were spectacular and highly recommend it for others to stay! The staff was welcoming and helpful in local restaurants and activities to do. Bikes were included which we were able to see the majority of what cape may had to offer! Truly a remarkable place that we will surely stay again in the future!
5 on October 30, 2013
What a beautiful place to stay. We used the bikes to ride into town which was only a 5 minute bike ride away. I highly recommend staying here.
4.8 on October 24, 2013
We picked this B & B because it was not a Victorian style home. The furnishings were Stickley and fit perfectly into the style of the home. The breakfasts were appealing to the eye and stomach and the home, though spacious, was cozy for relaxing. And who can beat their view???
4.6 on October 24, 2013
My wife and I went down Columbus Day Weekend before our son was born. We had a great time, the food was excellent, and the staff was so friendly. What a great place to stay. We would high recommend it.
5 on October 19, 2013
We had an amazing, romantic, warm weekend stay! Very hard for me to properly articulate our incredible stay! We would recommend a stay with this B&B to everyone!!!! If you want to enjoy an amazing, relaxing, warm, stress free, welcoming stay at a B&B in Cape May NJ....look no further...this is the B&B you should be calling for a reservation. Extremely clean, Exceptionally cozy & spacious rooms, Great flavorful breakfasts!! We kept forgetting we were staying at a B&B. Incredible B&B, Warm, Cozy B&B. Great B&B owner, Thank you Robyn!!!....spectacular history around and about the house. Your B&B has Great Positive, Welcoming Energy...a very happy home both past and present!!!! We are glad we have had the opportunity to contribute to this happy energy. Casual strolling distance to all the best restaurants, white sandy beach, historical parts of Cape May. We will make this an annual stay! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for an amazing weekend stay. We did not want to leave... See you again soon, Vernon & Kim
4.8 on October 17, 2013
To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, we chose to spend the weekend at Rhythm of the Sea, and couldn't have been happier with our decision! This B&B is charming, serene, and welcoming! It is perfectly located across the street from the beach, and a short walk from the historic district of Cape May. Robyn greeted us with a warm welcome and upon entering the Inn, you could feel the warmth and coziness with it's inviting and beautiful decor. Our room and the Inn were spotless and the furniture and overall Craftsman style decor were beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and the servings were plentiful, and mid-day cookies and tea or coffee is an added bonus. We brought our own wine, and Robyn provides refrigeration and wine glasses. In the evenings we had fun playing billiards. We ended the evenings by enjoying our chilled wine while sitting on the enclosed porch looking out at the beach and listening to soothing music playing in the background. Overall, our time at the Rhythm of the Sea was wonderful and I would highly recommend staying there.
5 on October 10, 2013
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and absolutely loved it. Robyn and Jamie were both gracious hosts. Our room had an ocean front balcony and the view was outstanding! I would highly recommend this B&B!
4.6 on October 07, 2013
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The service is excellent. You feel like you are home. The environment is so relaxing with a closed front porch that overlooks the ocean. The food is delicious. I will definitely go back again.
5 on September 26, 2013
My wife Vera and I spend several weekends a year in Cape May New Jersey. Till this year we always stayed in the same higher end B&B. This past September, we used Bed and Breakfest.com and searched for another option. Our search lead us to Rhythm of the Sea. We are both very happy it did. The Rhythm of the Sea was wonderful, clean and directly on the beach. It was a pleasure waking up with a fantastic view of the ocean and being rocked asleep at night listening to the waves. We will certainly return. Thanks.
4.2 on September 22, 2013
my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. The owners and the ambiance are very inviting and make for a wonderful, comfortable visit. They offer more amenities (beach towels, bikes, etc.) than many other B&Bs and are in a good location. And the breakfasts were delicious!
3.8 on September 18, 2013
We had a lovely time at this inn. The owners are delightful!!!! But very tall people should not stay in the carriage house. We will go back and stay in the main house.
5 on September 14, 2013
We spent our honeymoon here and we loved it. Amazing place, people, food, view. Wonderful.
5 on September 14, 2013
My wife and I had a wonderful four-night stay at Rhythm of the Sea over the Labor Day weekend. The location couldn't be more convenient -- across the street from the beach and a short walk to Cape May restaurants and shops. The hospitality was first-rate, the breakfasts were scrumptious and the whole building was beautiful, clean and open to the soft breezes of the day. We've recommended it to our friends and we can't wait to go back.
4.2 on September 11, 2013
Robin and Wolfgang, the owners and hosts, made us feel most welcome at their inn. They were absolutely delightful and personable. Jodie, their manager, was most professional, friendly and attentive to all the guests' needs. The housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient, and considerate of our schedules, tending to our room at our convenience, not theirs. My wife and I look forward to our next stay at Rhythm of the Sea.
4.4 on September 09, 2013
Rhythm of the Sea was a last minute getaway for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. The room was spectacular (#4) with a view I just couldn't stop staring at! The staff were laid back and relaxed which aided in us being able to relax even more. Breakfast was wonderful, and served by Jodi who was accommodating and very nice. We plan on making this an annual trip each year to the ROTS! Thanks again.
4.6 on September 09, 2013
The openness and clean lines of the design coupled with the friendliness and helpfulness of the inn keepers, created a stay that was much too short. Also, with parking at a premium in Cape May, the ample lot was much appreciated.
4.0 on September 05, 2013
Wonderful stay, the staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. Helpful and provided everything we needed to enjoy the beach, bikes to borrow, great suggestions for restraunts etc.
3.2 on September 04, 2013
Lovely property in a wonderful location.
4.2 on September 02, 2013
Loved the location -- across the street from the beach but away from the hubbub of downtown (while still within easy walking distance). The house is beautiful -- not the typical frou-frou Cape May Victorian. The front porch our favorite spot. Enjoyed ourselves very much.
4.4 on September 01, 2013
The entire staff at Rhythm of the Sea is eager to provide you the perfect escape! From the delicious breakfasts to beach towels & chairs so you don't have to lug them from home, freshened rooms when you return from breakfast to dinner suggestions & reservations, and the perfect beachfront location. Couldn't ask for more!
5 on August 29, 2013
Baby-moon #2 went down at Rhythm of the Sea and it was spectacular. There were other baby-mooner comments left in the guest book in our room too and we met a great couple who are expecting their first child a day before us at breakfast one morning. Robyn and Jodie were amazing hosts, friendly, inviting and informational. Our room was exactly as seen on the website (#4 Sea breeze sleeping porch). We slept really well at night and ate like kings in the morning. The breakfasts were so well prepared and presented. We loved hanging around the b&b in the afternoon playing pool or lounging on the front porch with the floor to ceiling windows slid open with a nice sea breeze coming in. We took full advantage of the brand new beach cruiser bikes and went into town a lot to eat and shop. Having the beach right across the street was wonderful too. We didn't spend as much time as we thought we would have on the beach though because we were more interested in lounging and eating. A couple of hours each day was enough and the beach is very well maintained. Don't forget you have to pay your beach pass fee when you enter the beach though, it was $20/3 days for 2 people. We were also able to park on site from 10 am our first day there until 1 PM today, but if you need additional parking the street behind the house has free parking. Thank you!
4.8 on August 29, 2013
We stayed last year and were so impressed that we did it again this year. The Inn is ideally located across from the beach with easy access. The beach is less crowded than other locations we passed walking along the beach in either direction.There is sufficient off street parking as well. In my opinion if you are looking for a low key no frills vacation the Inn is the ideal destination. Breakfast is served daily between 8:30 to 9:30 and there is always coffee and tea available throughout the day. We have found the owners and staff very accommodating and always make themselves available if you have a question or need something.

My husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary at Rhythm of the Sea and it was a fantastic experience! This B&B is located about a mile down the road from where the bulk of restaurants/bars/shops begin, so the only negative thing I could possibly say is that you have a bit of a walk or bike-ride to get to where the "action" is. However, the benefit of this placement is that Rhythm is so blissfully quiet and the area of beach immediately across the street is less crowded. We loved being able to come "home" after a busy day of shopping, dining, people-watching, and beach-lounging, and find a nice, quiet place to rejuvenate. The breakfast during our stay was AMAZING! So delicious! At 3:30, a "tea-time" is set out consisting of iced tea, iced lemonade, fruit and cookies. It was again, delicious, and a perfect afternoon snack. Rhythm provides free beach chairs, towels, and bikes, saving you on costly rental fees. The house itself is large, spacious, and comfortable. They have a lovely open front porch where you can enjoy the sea air in shade, with a view of the ocean across the street. They are also perfectly poised to watch a sunrise if you are an early-riser. We loved it and would certainly stay here again!

The best part of this b and b is definitely the view and the location. It's not right in the middle of all the action but close enough that everything is a comfortable bike ride of walk away. If you get the ocean view balcony, it is great for beach/people watching and having an afternoon glass of wine. The breakfasts were amazing and the hosts were very helpful and accommodating. The only thing I thought was lacking was the room size and decor. But still, a great place to stay!

My family and I enjoyed another wonderful stay at Rhythm Of the Sea.We can not wait until next year!!! The Pomrink Family

Lovely, tasteful, airy inn right across from the beach. Friendly, helpful owner and staff. Bike and beach chairs free of charge. Refrigerator for guest's food and drink. Pool table. Quiet, relaxing location but walkable to town. Highly recommend!

My sister, 1 yr old nephew and I stayed in the carriage house for 5 days in August. Excellent way to stay at a B&B with a toddler!! Carriage house was perfect size and layout with HUGE bedroom that fit pack n play and sitting room with microwave, fridge, and counter with sink. Can't say enough about the amazing breakfast and that they brough it over was perfect to fit in to our little ones schedule, and not have him bother others in the breakfast area :) Location is perfect, beach area is quiet because it's directly between two comfort stations but not very close to either. The walk back to the house is just as far. And we walked everywhere, didn't use the car once! We're already looking at dates for next yr!!!!
3.6 on August 22, 2013
Just back from a wonderful two night stay in Room 6 here. Photos don't do the room size justice. Rooms were very large. Front "porch" is amazing, could have spent all day there! Little far away from the "action" if you want to walk it, but nice and quiet. Highly recommend it!
4.4 on August 16, 2013
I had a great stay at Rhythm of the Sea. The room, service, cleanliness, and dining were great. It was nice to use the bikes, beach towels, and chairs. The price was a little expensive overall. I would go back to this place in the future.
5 on August 10, 2013
Thank you Robyn, Wolfgang and Julie for providing the perfect place to relax, enjoy the ocean and celebrate a birthday. Each time we visit we feel like we're coming back to our family and a favorite beach home. We love you!! See you next year, same time, same place for another grand birthday celebration!!
4.6 on August 01, 2013
Room was nice, view of the ocean was wonderful, breakfast was very good, the shower was a bit small, and the cost was a little high given the accommodations. Overall this is a very nice B&B.
3.6 on August 01, 2013
The glassed in front porch makes it possible to enjoy the sea even when the weather is less than balmy. A last minute request for a gluten-free breakfast was cheerfully and deliciously accomodated.
4.8 on July 29, 2013
Beautiful facility, outstanding service! Can't wait to go back!

A wonderful experience! We'll try to get back in the fall!
4.8 on July 28, 2013
Our second time here. The property is wonderful, nice views of the beach. The breakfasts are awesome. We'll return again.
4.8 on July 28, 2013
My fiancé and I had the most relaxing 3 night stay here. The view from our room was beautiful, we could see the beach. Beach access is literally across the street, but you do need to pay for a beach tag. Jodie the innkeeper was so friendly and upbeat, and very knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was GREAT. Every day things got more and more delicious, definitely do not skip. They also put out cookies and iced tea/lemonade in the afternoon, yummy and still warm from the oven. Everything very clean, house is beautiful. We will be back! Best way to enjoy Cape May!
3.6 on July 26, 2013
Ours was a hectic (borderline frantic) trip to Cape May. All in all, Rhythm of the Sea was very pleasant. The staff was incredibly accommodating.
5 on July 23, 2013
This is our fourth year at the Rhythm of the Sea to celebrate our anniversary and every year we continue to love the house, breakfast which is different every day and the cleanliness/service is outstanding. This year we did something different as our golden retriever past last year and we have also a Jug jack Russell/Pug so we asked the owner if we could bring him as they have a carriage house over the garage which is for young children and she said yes. This was the only room that we had not seen. We normally stay in either room 1 or 4. Room 1 has a balcony that faces the ocean and is very nice in the morning seeing the sun rise and at night to just relax and hear the ocean hitting the beach. The carriage house has two rooms one has the bed and the other has the living area very nice. Now that we have been in the carriage house we are going to continue to reserve this room and not room 1 which we really love as we will continue to bring our Jug as he loved it and we love him. So if you want to meet wonderful warm people who take care of your every need or want you must stay here. They make you feel as part of a family and you get to see others that you have met over the years. The B & B has a new addition his name is Jodie and he has taken over for Julie who left with her husband and moved to Florida. He is very nice and enjoyable plus he will take care of your needs. Again this is a must stay B & B if you want to be pampered and feel loved. Michael & Sandy Lipka

Stayed for 2 days and 3 nights, and it was absolutely perfect! The Seaside Retreat was a perfect room for 2. Service was very welcoming and made our stay feel like we were at our own beach house. Great location if you are looking to just relax at the beach. Definitely will be staying at the Rhythm of the Sea again!
5 on July 16, 2013
An extremely pleasant 4 days. Everything was top shelf. Beautiful location on the ocean. Breakfasts were extraordinary. Roomy and comfortable. Excellent restaurants nearby. Will return.
5 on July 12, 2013
My husband and I recently stayed at the Rythym of the Sea Inn. It is the best Bed and Breakfast. Robyn and Jodie were so friendly and were also very helpful with any questions we had about the area. The Inn has bikes that you can use, which my husband and I used the entire weekend. What a fun and relaxing weekend! The beach was directly across the street, which was very convenient. We highly recommend this Inn, it was amazing!
4.8 on July 10, 2013
We had a lovely few days at this charming and homely BnB. A great location, overlooking the beach, delicious breakfast and very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
4.6 on July 06, 2013
We had a great time- beautiful weather and great room and breakfast.
4.4 on July 03, 2013
The owners and staff were exceptionally professional and very friendly. When talking with them we felt as if we have known them for years, yet we just met that day. The inn is fabulous. We will be back
5 on July 03, 2013
Exceeded my expectations.. Food and service incredible . Can't wait to got back.
4.6 on June 26, 2013
From the moment we entered Rhythm of the Sea we felt at home with Robyn and Wolfgang, and Jodie being gracious hosts who provided a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, with incredible breakfasts, and wonderful afternoon beverages and treats. The room was spacious with newly renovated bathroom, and the Inn is very clean and comfortable. Extra amenities provided included towels and beach chairs, bikes to explore Cape May, and outdoor shower. We will definitely be back!
4.0 on June 26, 2013
This is a great place to stay at the beach on the quieter side of the beach, yet close enough to get to everything. Park the car and go about your way. Robyn is a gracious host and the inn has everything you could want. Very relaxing and stress free.
4.8 on June 23, 2013
This was our first visit to Cape May, NJ and we found the Rhythm of the Sea website while we were researching our trip and possible places to stay. What I loved immediately was the presentation of the rooms and of course, being from New York loving the Stickley furniture which is all throughout the inn! We were not disappointed - the entire establishment was so impeccably maintained - inside & out. Just lovely and we felt welcomed immediately. The location couldn't be better right across the street from the ocean and the entire visit was so amazingly relaxing and comfortable. The meals were presented with obvious attention to detail and were delicious! We are already making plans to return and look forward to visiting in early fall to experience a different season. The owners and staff were such genuine and friendly people, it truly was a wonderful experience! Al & Maureen Verone
4.8 on June 22, 2013
I enjoyed my stay at the Rhythm of the Sea, as I always do. I love the room, the hospitality, and the delicious breakfasts. The new bikes are wonderful!!

Always like coming home. Wonderful place, great host, great breakfasts...can't say enough.

Enjoyed every detail! Especially use of the bikes and pool table and the atmosphere was perfect. Recommend to anyone!
4.4 on June 14, 2013
As always our stsy st Rythym was what we became used too, not our first stay and certainly will not be our last Robyn and staff make you feel like old frineds instead of customers our favorite place to stay in C M Walter & Pat
4.8 on June 07, 2013
My husband and I have been coming down to Wildwood/Cape May for over twenty years for family vacations. Last August it was just the two of us and we decided to try a B&B. I believe Rythym of the Sea is the only one right on the beach. We had an oceanfront room and it was wonderful going to sleep every night to the sound of the surf. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was nice too, but the shower stall was a little small. The breakfasts were excellent and there are a few good restaurants within walking distance. The Inn itself is large and comfortable and we just felt like we were staying in someone's home. Eveyone there was very friendly and helpful. We loved getting a cup of coffee in the morning and sitting out in the front porch and looking out on to the beach. There are beach towels available and we also took a couple of bikes out one morning. Overall a very relaxing place to stay and a short walk across the street to the beach. We liked it so much we are going back this July and we are very much looking forward to another awesome experience!
4.8 on June 06, 2013
3 June nights at Rythum of the Sea - wonderful and friendly owners. Impeccably decorated Craftsman style home with Stickley/Mission furniture throughout the eight bedroom home. Creative and delicious breakfast - owners take pride in the upkeep and detail maintenance of the home. Been spending long weekends in Cape May for 25 years and have stayed at many BBs and Hotels - once I found Rythum , I do not stay anywhere else! Love the place and location.
5 on June 05, 2013
Excellent. we loved everything about our stay and cant wait to go back.

Great place to stay, the staff was very hospitable.
3.4 on May 24, 2013
Went on a weekend just before a holiday weekend. Weren't as many guests as I thought there would be there but we enjoyed the quite and relaxation. The room we had looked out on part ot the ocean so the wave sounds were very hypnotizing and led to a very relaxed sleep.
4.2 on May 22, 2013
Lovely place to spend a relaxing weekend! Wonderful to be able to borrow beach cruisers and wander through Cape May. Beautiful rooms and lovely hosts.
5 on May 20, 2013
The house is lovely, rooms are comfortable and clean and attention has been paid to small details that make the stay just that much more luxurious. We didn't expect the road to be there between the house and the beach, based on the pictures on the website, but the traffic is not that heavy, so it wasn't that bad. Breakfast was slightly sweet for our taste, but still very well made. Robin was of great help and so very welcoming. We would definitely stay here again!
4.8 on May 17, 2013
My wife and 7 month old child stayed here for Mother's Day weekend and the B+B was very nice and the staff was wonderful. We loved waking up every morning and staring at the ocean. It was nice to take walks on the beach walk. It was such a great weekend we hope to come back soon.
5 on May 13, 2013
I recently booked a two night stay with Jodie for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. I didn't know much about Bed and Breakfast places at first, and I am more then happy that I chose Rhythm of the Sea. The Inn keeper Jodie was so helpful with my 1,000 requests.. Lol. He responded to my emails everyday within minutes and accomodated everything I needed to make my parents stay as best as it could be. You just don't get that kind of service everywhere. He never sounded annoyed by my calls and was always pleasant and helpful. I will definately be recommending this bed and breakfast to everyone I know, based on the service alone, nevermind how beautiful the inn is. Thanks again Jodie CT
4.6 on May 12, 2013
This is our second stay there, and we enjoy each visit. The owners are welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. You feel as if you are at home. Great view of the ocean, and within walking distance to everything we need, including the Mall. Walking around Cape May is awesome, and this is a great starting point. Do not hesitate to stay here. You will not be disappointed.
5 on May 08, 2013
My recent stay at The Rhythm of the Sea exceeded my expectations. My room was wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing. Robyn and Julie made me feel right at home. The breakfast was delicious!! This will be my spot from now on.
4.4 on May 07, 2013
Such a charming ocean home. Robyn and Wolfgang are so nice and welcoming. You will feel more like friends staying over rather than paying guests that is for sure. Take advantage of the open dining breakfast make some new friends. We will definitely be back!
4.8 on May 01, 2013
My daughter and I have had several great visits to Rhythm of the Sea, and this was the first time I visited with my husband. Coming to Rhythm is like coming home. Robyn and Wolfgang are gracious and welcoming, and our room was immaculate as usual. The beautiful, well-maintained property, the close proximity to the beach, and the quiet location that is still close to the center of town, are all reasons why we will continue to return to Rhythm of the Sea whenever possible.

Lovely rooms wonderful breakfast, close to the sea and the center of the city

Went with my girlfriend for our anniversary, and had an excellent stay. The dining was great (they managed to accomodate her vegan diet) and everything about the room was perfect. Looking forward to another stay sometime soon!

I found myself with some time off in February and decided to spend it at Rhythm of the Sea. I had never been there in winter and came prepared with loads of reading. Well, I have never had a better time: lots of time reading by the fireplace (heavenly), candles for atmosphere on the coffee table, a bit of wine...My room--Sea Isle Oasis --was spacious and had all kinds of amenities, the most important being a "spa" type bathroom with a deep tub and unending hot water. I provided my own breakfast foods and Julie pretty much left me to my own devices. While Cape May was quiet (being off-season) I did take advantage of dining at two hard-to book-in-summer restaurants. And the audiotour of Cape May houses was superb! The streets were devoid of traffic and tourists so I could really move about leisurely. It's hard to believe that a couple of days can have such a rejuvenating effect! Taking the time for a break is one of the best things a person can do for themselves--especially in February!
3.6 on January 02, 2013
Robyn & Wolfgang are pleasant hosts. Price is a bit high, but could be due to excellent location.
4.6 on November 13, 2012
This was our first stay at Rhythm of the Sea, but not our last! We truly had a fabulous experience and look forward to returning!
4.6 on November 05, 2012
very nice, well kept, friendly staff, was there the day before Hurricane Sandy and hope all is well there.
4.6 on November 01, 2012
Even with a hurricane coming up the coast, Robyn, Wolf and Julie made us feel warm and welcomed. Always the penultimate innkeepers, these three outdo themselves every time we stay at Rhythm of the Sea! Glad to her the ol' girl survived the storm so we can continue to enjoy its gracious style!
4.6 on October 22, 2012
We love this place. The house is full of well-maintained charm and our room was clean and comfortable. (Satellite TV and an iPod dock are a nice touch for a rainy evening.) The common areas -- the breezy front porch area, the sitting room with fireplace and the dining room -- are also very inviting. And the beach is right across the road. (Only four guest rooms have a direct view of it, I think.) The hosts provide beach towels, beach chair and bikes -- no charge, no deposit, just help yourself and bring them back when you're done with them. We loved that this place is located at the quiet end of the strip, away from the big, loud hotels. It's about a twenty-minute walk to the pedestrian mall area of town, which is farther than some, but it's a short drive or, if you don't want to pay for parking, just borrow one of the inn's bikes! Simple. Breakfasts were tremendous -- something different each day, prepared skillfully. The hosts are very friendly and helpful if you need anything, and otherwise they leave you alone. Next time we go to Cape May I am sure we will stay there again.
4.6 on October 12, 2012
This was the first time my wife and I stayed at a B&B and we both absolutely loved Rhythm of the Sea. Robyn, Wolfgang, and Julie were all so very nice and super personable. They were extremely helpful with anything we needed and the breakfasts they made were honestly some of the very creative and delicious breakfasts we have had. We have no doubt where we will stay when we visit Cape May each time we go, which we plan on at the very least yearly.
5 on October 11, 2012
that is what we dubbed the weekend we spent at Rhythm of the Sea. The accomodations were superb. We stayed in the Carriage House which was private, tranquil and so soothing. The food was beyond good. We did not leave a crumb on a plate! Everything was clean and charming. We had a most wonderful time and plan to return again and again.
4.2 on October 10, 2012
We spent two nights at this location with my wife as a wedding present from my family. The service, breakfast meals and cleanliness of the place are 5star. The staff makes your stay a very pleasant one, accommodating as much as they can towards your needs.
4.8 on October 05, 2012
This was a long overdue getaway for us but worth the wait. We have never stayed at a place where we could actually see and hear the ocean from our room. The breakfasts were perfect, with friendly and pleasant hosts, and a peaceful yet convenient location. We were sad to go and plan to be back.
4.8 on October 02, 2012
The rhythm of the sea was an awesome bed and breakfast! We stayed for 2 nights after our crazy wedding weekend. On Sunday evening we sat out on the patio overlooking the ocean while drinking a glass of wine. We used the inn's bikes to ride around Cape May all day on Monday. We returned to nap and then walked to dinner at the nearby Pier House which was a recommendation from Julie. Breakfast was delicious both mornings as well as the cookies that were put out each afternoon at 3:30. Fantastic stay! Would definitely come back again!
4.4 on September 27, 2012
perfect location, lovely rooms, friendly people, relaxing stay.

Nice clean and tasteful room - fireplace not functioning. Good food but not exceptional. Great location and very inviting common spaces. Ample parking. Pleasant and helpful owner.

My husband and I travelled to Cape May via the Lewes-Cape May Ferry to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. The weather was beautiful, the Rhythm of Sea Innkeepers and food were excellent. We will return there again soon
5 on September 20, 2012
The ocean front balcony room was fabulous! Being able to see & hear the ocean as you lie in bed; you can't get better than that! The balcony was my favorite place to be during the day. The staff was super nice, made us feel right at home. We've met wonderful people at breakfast each morning and the food was yummy!
4.8 on September 17, 2012
Life is a gift to you, and it goes by ever so quickly…so don't put things off. Be sure to enjoy some personal time with your significant other. One great way of doing this is to give them a memory to retain in their heart and mind.... give them a vacation at one of Cape May's best Bed and Breakfast establishments, Rhythm of the Sea. This B&B is very well cared for by the owners, Robin and Wolfgang. Awesome view of the ocean… don’t you just love waking up to the fresh air, or falling asleep to the gentle and soothing song of the ocean? Their breakfasts are sure to please any pallet. Their staff, Julie or Ingrid, are always so warm and friendly and quite helpful regarding things to do or sights to see. Rooms are clean, comfortable and great air conditioning in the summer. Wonderful fire place to warm you up on those colder evenings. They are located in walking distance to the boardwalk, many restaurants and to the pedestrian Washington Mall. I especially enjoyed the recreational room where my husband and I played a game of pool. The daily coffee, tea and afternoon cookies were free and delicious! Their customer service attitude is top notch. It was truly a wonderful pleasure, one to remember and reminiscence upon for years to come.
5 on September 13, 2012
You start your day with the most wonderful breakfast and meet such wonderful guests that you immediately feel are like family. It just gets better during the day as you come and go with local activitives. Afternoon tea gives you the energy lift to finish the day with more enjoyment. Such a calming place to stay! Mark & Charlyn Mulkey

We had a wonderful 3 night stay. Our room was spacious and very clean. The house was beautiful with an open downstairs commons area for sitting to enjoy the ocean breeze. Breakfast each day was wonderful, even accomodated a gluten-free diet (I didnt feel like I missed out at all because the gluten free version was prepared so well). Helpful innkeepers with recommendations for local restaurants and activities. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
4.4 on September 04, 2012
Rhythm is a wonderful b&b that is located in a desirable spot, which is away from the crowds of town and directly across the street from the ocean. Julie, their wonderful innkeeper, makes you feel at home and can help you with anything you need. Breakfast is plentiful. There are bikes for sightseeing and the convenience of beach gear/shower and parking on site. The town's trolley can pick you up right in front of the inn which is great, you don't need to use your car often. Rhythm is a place to relax and truly makes a vacation more enjoyable. Will be back for a third time!
3.2 on September 01, 2012
We hadn't stayed at the Rhythm for several year and looked forward to our recent stay because we enjoyed or prior visits. Maybe it was the time of year because we never stayed there in August, but the Rhythm was a bit worn. The beach chairs were in various states of disrepair and we had to sort through them to find one that was functional. We liked the view from the room, but the room itself needs a paint job. The water pressure in the shower was horrible. The water just dribble out. However, the service is great and you feel very welcome. You can't beat the location and we enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again.
5 on August 26, 2012
For a relaxing spot by the sea, this is the place to be. Delicious hot breakfasts, exquisite rooms, Robyn and Julie simply warm and gracious! Once you have visited, you will always return...Enjoy!
5 on August 22, 2012
We had another wonderful vacation at Rhythm of the Sea. We stayed in a different room this time and it was just as wonderful as the previous years room. Food was fantastic, and the people we met and talked to from different parts of the country was just so enjoyable! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! FIVE STARS.....
5 on August 22, 2012
My husband and I have taken getaways to Cape May for about 8 years now - we've never stayed anywhere else but ROTS, or would we. From our very first visit we felt welcomed and comfortable - beautiful interior design (NON-victorian ... hard to find) and kept by owners Robyn & Wolfgang. In their absence, Julie takes over and is equally as wonderful and helpful. Ocean views, gourmet breakfasts, afternoon refreshments when we come off the beach (which is just across the avenue) - this is why we return. It feels like HOME everytime we arrive ... without the housework!
5 on August 08, 2012
A refreshing get away..Staff was great, rooms clean as home, food was great and location could not have been batter. 5 stars!!!
3.6 on August 04, 2012
Cape May was great, and this B&B is very close to most things. The bikes are very handy, and I really enjoyed using them each day. Even better they are included in the room rate. The food was good, but a little assortment would be better. Also, hot water in the evening was generally empty, so having tea was not always possible. the place was very clean, and I always appreciate that in any place I stay. I would recommend to others.
4.4 on August 01, 2012
My fiance and I stayed at Rhythm of the Sea for alng weekend and really enjoyed it. It is in a primo location (right across from the beach) and in an area that is a little less busy than some of the other locations on the beach, so where we sat on the beach was not as crowded as other areas. The breakfasts were all outstanding, couldn't have asked for better food. I also really liked the lobby, very open and airy with a big pool table and a cooler with water, iced tea, and sodas to help yourself to. The room was cleaned almost instantaneously and was already done by the time we finished breakfast. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Highly recommend, without a doubt we are going back. I just wish it was a little less expensive but the quality was certainly worth it.
5 on July 28, 2012
A great alternative to the more common Victorian style B&B's. There are only 8 rooms in this home so a lot of the time you felt as though you were alone and the staff is very unobtrusive. However, they do make themselves available 24/7 should you need them. The location is fabulous and the house has a wonderful enclosed front porch that opens on 3 sides so you can enjoy the refreshing breeze that comes off the ocean. They provide beach chairs and towels and you are free to use their bicycles as well. Our room was comfortable and well appointed and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be coming back here. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the fun billiard table in the living room!
4.6 on July 27, 2012
Quiet, peaceful B&B that felt like home! We enjoyed our time there very much. A short walk across the street to the beach and a nice bike ride to downtown Washington Street area. Parking downtown was limited so we enjoyed the convenience of the Trolly when we needed a ride. Cape May is a lovely area. We really enjoyed our Sunset Dolpin Watch cruise -- saw many dolphin! Loved Island Grill near the Gazbo downtown. Food everywhere is pricey so be warned when it comes to dining ($$$). After talking to some B&B guests we learned about a great "early bird" special at Carney's. Enjoyed very much the Flag Ceremony at Sunset Beach--go early for convenient parking. A great place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
4.4 on July 16, 2012
Great location, relaxing and accommodating. Conveniently located directly across from the beach, with lovely views. An easy walk to the town center. The common area is a great place to relax after the beach. I especially enjoyed relaxing on the front porch with a glass of lemonade and a good book. The breakfast and snacks are sumptuous. Overall a lovely weekend in a lovely beach town.
4.4 on July 11, 2012
Spent an anniversary weekend and had a wonderful time. Easy walking distance to dining and shopping. Breakfast was spendid and we enjoyed the porches/lounges to just sit and read beside the ocean. Would definitely recommend.
4.4 on July 05, 2012
We had a lovely stay at the Carriage House. We highly recommend this to couples who enjoy privacy and a large intimate setting. It was simply perfect, with views of the ocean in both rooms. We had a chance to look over the entire main house as well, and we were impressed with the attention to detail in the well-maintained craftsman decor. The staff, Ingrid and Julie, were very pleasant and not imposing, making us feel very comfortable. We are hoping to stay there again for our twenty-fifth. It was the ideal getaway, with so much to do in that charming town!
4.8 on July 03, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay and would go back. The breakfasts and snacks were absolutely delicious.
3.6 on July 03, 2012
Wonderful location, very clean room, delicious breakfast, perfect service!
4.8 on July 02, 2012
We recently returned from another fabulour week in Cape May...mainly due to the hospitality we received at Rhythm of the Sea. Julie is a delightful host, our room was lovely and provided us with ocean sounds and beautiful ocean views, and the breaksfasts were, as always, delightfully delicious! We have been fortunate enough to stay at Rhythm of the Sea several times and it never, ever disappoints.
5 on June 30, 2012
Rhythm of the Sea was a nice quiet place to stay and is about as close to the beach as one can get. The gourmet breakfasts were outstanding! Julie made us feel right at home. We highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea to anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of life and relax to the cool breeze and calming sounds of the ocean.

My wife and I had a great time at Rhythm of the Sea. Robyn, Wolfgang, and Julie were so accomadating. We really enjoyed our stay in Cape May and will probably go back there every year.

This house has the greatest covered, open-to-the-air porch in Cape May. You can sit or lounge in absolute comfort while enjoying the sea breeze and the endlessly entertaining view of the Atlantic right across the street. You'll love the welcome you receive from the innkeepers! And the breakfast and afternoon treats are fantastic - meticulously prepared and presented. Individual requests are graciously accommodated. The dining room has four tables set for 4 people each, so you have some privacy while still engaging in the interaction that B+Bs are famous for. Rhythm of the Sea is a lovely property with lots of common areas to take advantage of so you don't feel trapped in your room. Many of the original details have been preserved. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. However, they are beginning to show their age a bit - some areas could definitely use a bit of a spruce-up. If you choose to stay in the Jersey Shore Suite, you should be aware that the main bedroom has a great king sized bed, but the second room has only a (pretty rickety) single bed with a trundle that is made up as a daybed. There is another adjoining room with a queen bed that could potentially be used as part of the suite, but you should clarify that this is an option before you book. There is a rate for 2 guests in this suite and a rate for 4 guests and if there are 3 of you, you are charged the 4 person rate. There is a main bathroom with a very small sink and, right next door, a powder room, so this arrangement gives you flexibility and is very helpful. This house would be a great vacation spot for a large family or a group of friends, but the individual traveler would also feel at ease here. You'll want to come back for a second visit!

Our stay was very enjoyable. The inn was beautiful. Spent many hours in the sun porch watching the sea and reading. Julie is the perfect host. Many good local restaurants.
4.2 on June 14, 2012
Great rooms, great location, the owners and innkeeper go out of their way to make your stay wonderful and they make wonderful breakfasts! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape May.

Perfect location across the street from the beach and just a few blocks from the bars, shops, beachside attractions, and restaurants of Cape May. The service was outstanding and accomodating. The bikes were a HUGE benefit and really added to the experience. Would definitely stay again. The beach chairs were convenient but probably should be updated, and the breakfast should probably be available for more than one hour. Overall a great stay!!!
4.8 on May 28, 2012
What a marvelous B&B. Ingrid was wonderful and very in tune to our needs. Room was perfect and weather allowed open windows so breeze and waves were part of the experience. Plenty of spaces throughout the houses to sit and read and visit. Perfect place to unwind and recharge......will be back again....
4.4 on May 21, 2012
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights this past week (May); we loved it. Julia was was very nice, and her breakfasts were great. The place is about .5 miles from "the action" which was a perfect distance. The house had a very homely feel, and it is literally AT the beach, where my wife and I went running and walking each morning. Julia gives you access to pretty much anything in the house, and we will definitely return. Well worth the price!
5 on May 21, 2012
I have stayed at the B&B quite a few times and have never been disappointed. You are taken away to a very relaxing place where you can just enjoy the quiet. It is one of my favorite places.

Beautiful and comfortable B&B. Enjoyed our relaxing stay.

We stayed in the Oceanfront room in April/May ! The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful! Julie was a great hostess and cook! Thanks for a great experience and we will come back again!!

My husband and I built a weekend getaway around our daughter-in-law's baby shower. Rhythm of the Sea was the perfect spot. Right across from the ocean, within walking distance of shops and the Washington Street Mall. We had an awesome time, and will certainly be back.
5 on April 18, 2012
Robyn, Wolfgang and Julie are amazing hosts!!! My husband and I love not only to stay there, but we also love the passion that each has about their respective positions! My husband and I went down to breakfast and lingered over some coffee and good conversation, and when we decided to go back to our room and prepare to walk the beach- our ROOMS WERE ALREADY CLEAN!!! We love you guys and will see you soon! Tony and Tanya!
4.4 on April 15, 2012
We just got back from a wonderful stay at the" Rhythm by the sea" Robyn and Julie made us feel like we were at home. The Inn is very charming with its beautiful furniture and comfortable and clean cozy rooms. The location of the Inn is across from where you can access to the beach. We stayed in #4 Side Porch which have wonderful views of the ocean from the large windows and spacious too !The best part of each morning was expericing the amazing breakfast that was served with hot coffee and tea. Robyn and Wolfgang thank you for making our first time experince at a Bed and Breakfast a memorable one, we will return. Susan and James
4.2 on April 11, 2012
My husband and I decided we needed a few days of relaxation and we chose Cape May to unwind, since we heard from friends that Cape May was beautiful. We picked Rhythm of the Sea because of its location (the website did a good job of accurately displaying everything). Our room was comfortable, but the best part of our stay was the gorgeous views and delicious food. The breakfasts were amazing. And Robyn, Wolfgang and Julie could not have been more personable and friendly. Great place with great people. thanks!

We had a wonderful stay at Rhythm of the Sea. The room was perfect overlooking the beach. We were able to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets from our room. Lucky for us, the weather was above 50 degrees during our stay in the month of February which allowed us to leave the windows open in the evening in order to enjoy the sounds of the ocean while we slept. The caretaker of the home was very accomodating and attended to all of our needs.
4.6 on February 23, 2012
Went for an anniversary weekend stay in Cape May. The room was excellent, the food good (made excellent breakfast to accomodate my vegan girlfriend), and when the weather turned cold, the fireplace and cocoa were great to come back to! We are recommending the Rhythm of the Sea to all of our friends.
4.6 on February 20, 2012
Julie was fanstastic. It seems as though every little detail was covered. She was gracious and accommodating. The house was immaculate, cozy, spacious, warm, charming - the list is endless. My partner and I went for a much needed relaxing getaway and have found a new favorite B&B. We're making plans to return this year. Our quandry has been wanting to keep this found beauty to ourselves or to not be selfish and share its existance with others..
5 on February 08, 2012
We recently stayed at the Rhythm of the Sea in Cape May. First, the Inn is gorgeous, great location and tastefully decorated. Everything was spotless and well maintained. We did not have one complaint! Our host Julie was fantastic. She did everything to make us feel welcome and right at home. She offered a lot of local suggestions regarding dinner and site seeing. Breakfast, WOW this was amazing. Everything was homemade! The homemade Granola and and yogurt was out of this world. There was so much to say about how great our breakfast was each day that I would sum it up as GOURMET! We visited the Inn during the winter and it was quiet and relaxing which we actually loved. We enjoyed ourselves relaxing with a bottle of wine by the fireplace in the main living room downstairs. We were able to enjoy each others company without distractions from others which was priceless. Our room was nice with a gas fireplace. The room was nicely decorated with a very nice bathroom, and NEAT and CLEAN! If your looking for a B&B in Cape May (Rhythm of the Sea is the only one on beach front) this place will not disappoint you. We are hoping to get back here soon. Thank you Julie for your professionalism and welcoming demeanor made our first trip to a B & B in Cape May enjoyable. Room Tip: If Traveling in Winter I recommend the rooms with a fireplace it just adds to the ambiance. Though honestly we were able to see all the rooms and they are all nice, so you will not be disappointed. The room in the front of the Inn was very large with a fantastic view of the beach. They have a refrigerator for those that wish to bring drinks such as wine, soda or water in the lobby. Parking is on the property. If your looking to get away from busy crowds and want to avoid summer crowds then I would strongly suggest winter months here it was the most relaxing two days we have had in a long time!

We had a wonderful time. The room was great. The breakfasts were outstanding. And Robyn, Wolfgang, and Julie took great care of us. It was a wonderful way to spend a weekend during the holiday season. Plus Cape May was decorated beautifully for Christmas.
4.8 on December 14, 2011
Julie is wonderful and very hospitable. She took excellent care of us. It's like having an extra girlfriend at the house. My friends and I do our now annual Cape May getaway weekend at Rhythm of the Sea. Very quaint, comfortable and neat & clean. The front porch is wonderful even if the weather is cold. We did our am devotions on the porch in the sun. 5 stars!!! Thanks Owners.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Rhythm in mid-October and it was amazing. Our room was gorgeous and had everything we needed! It was very comfortable and waking up to the sunrise was beautiful. The food was outrageous. Best food in Cape May hands down and coffee/tea readily available all day and night. Everyone there is very sweet and personable as well as very helpful with local suggestions. Rhythm has bikes available, lovely pool table, cozy fireplace and many areas to lounge. It's immaculate and you feel right at home! We highly recommend this B&B! ··Danielle&Carmelo

Been to stay at Rhythm of the Sea three times now and will continue going back.
5 on November 16, 2011
My wife and I decided to visit Rhythm of the Sea for our fifth anniversary. We couldn't be happier with our decision. Robyn and Julie were consummate hosts. The food was delicious and the setting was peaceful and inviting. We'll definitely stay there again!
5 on November 14, 2011
Rhythm's is the best B+B in Cape May. It is our home away from home, a place we love to come to and never want to leave.
4.8 on November 12, 2011
Stayed there on the weekend of Nov 5, 2011. The place is on the beach, just outside of the historic district of cape may. We enjoyed the 15 minute walk along the beach to the commercial center, loved the room, sea isle oasis, with the large, clean bathroom. Breakfast was good (though I thought my eggs were a little runny), and had a good time chatting with the other guests over breakfast. We also enjoyed all the Stickley furniture throughout the house. This was what we were looking for, and we plan to return next time we're in Cape May.
5 on November 02, 2011
we have stayed at Rhythm of the Sea several times and are planning already to return.
4.8 on November 02, 2011
Our time at Rhythm of the Sea was AMAZING!!! Robyn was so lovely and helpful and the food was absolutely wonderful! Her husband does all the baking!!! Spectacular view - even during a Nor'easter. We will definitely be back!!!
4.4 on October 31, 2011
My wife and I came for an October weekend getaway to celebrate our 40th. This B&B is top notch. It seemed our hosts, either Robyn or Wolfgang, were always available to offer advice or just chat. The rooms are excellent. We chose a room promising an ocean view and were not disappointed one bit - was exactly as we expected. I would certainly recommend Rhythm of the Sea. PD
4.0 on October 30, 2011
We had a wonderful few days, thoroughly enjoyed the location, the rooms, the beach, the service and staff, breakfast was phenomenal and so was Robyn and Julie! Very friendly, welcoming. Felt like I was at home immediately. It's everything you see on the website and more.
4.0 on October 30, 2011
A perfectly lovely stay at a perfectly lovely inn. We very much liked the feel of this place...a nice alternative to heavy Victorian decor. Our hosts were very pleasant, and the breakfasts were simply outstanding. A gorgeous location. On the more expensive end for us, but all in all it was worth it.
4.2 on October 29, 2011
Rhythm of the Sea is a charming, seaside B&B decorated in Arts and Crafts furniture (the architectural/decorative style made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright). It is open and airy, with a large, friendly lobby and sun porches, which is a wonderful contrast to the dark, cluttered, Victorian B&Bs that predominate Cape May. The owner, Robyn, is warm, charming, and generous (she lends her guests beach bikes for no charge, has cookies and hot beverages available in the afternoon, etc.). Our room was gorgeous, fairly spacious, and tastefully decorated. We kept the windows open at night and the sea breeze was delightful. In all, we greatly enjoyed our stay at Rhythm of the Sea and will definitely stay there again.

We just got back from our stay at the Rhythm of the Sea. It was a wonderful experience as soon as we walked in the door. We were greeted by the manager, Julie, who made us feel most welcomed. The room was beautiful and well maintained. We were able to meet the owners Robyn and Wolfgang. They were such a delight to talk to and Wolfgang is quite the storyteller! :-) The breaksfasts were delicious, the property well maintained, and tjhe atmosphere calming. Thank you for an enjoyable weekend where we were pampered and relaxed within an hour of arrival. We will definitely go back.
4.6 on October 15, 2011
The breakfasts were outstanding. Our host was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.
4.2 on October 07, 2011
I wanted a quiet week by the ocean, listening to the waves while being pampered in a beautiful environment, and that's exactly what I found at Rhythm of the Sea. Julie was there if needed, but not intrusive, and the weekend manager, Ingrid, was excellently welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, and the bed was very comfy - some nights were cool, due to having my window open, and the downy comforter was just right. My favorite memory is waking early, going downstairs to the sunroom, opening the French doors to let the breeze in, and watching the people pass by with dogs, looking at the waves, and reading my book while the sun came up, all with a hot cup of coffee to sip on, and scents of breakfast being prepared wafting my way. I can't wait to return next year!
5 on October 06, 2011
This B&B greatly exceeded my expectations. The people there are warm and welcoming. The Inn itself is beautifully decorated with warm tones and colors and doors that open up to view the ocean which is right across the street. I can't say enough about how beautiful we thought this B&B was. The breakfast was amazing. If you want to go to Cape May which is lovely, I recommend Rhythm of the Sea as the place to stay. You won't regret it.
5 on October 05, 2011
We so totally enjoyed our stay! We were greeted by the owners Robyn and Wolfgang and their two adorable 'children' (the kind with 4 legs). Robyn showed us to our room after a brief show around the house, and it was stunning - very open and airy and windows that overlooked the ocean. We relaxed with wine on the sun porch one evening and our coffee the next morning, feeling the ocean breezes blow over us! It was total relaxation, and peace - something we very much needed to put ourselves back in Rhythm with life! We highly recommend the stay - it was worth every penny! Oh and the breakfasts were outstanding as well!
4.4 on October 03, 2011
My husband and I had an great time. The breakfast's were delicious. Our hosts were friendly and informative. Our only complaint was that our TV set was smaller than our laptop! We like to watch TV before we fall asleep and trying to see the TV from our bed was an eyestrain. Otherwise good location and a clean environment.
5 on September 29, 2011
The accomodations are top notch and it is a great home away from home. Robyn and Wolfgang are the greatest host and we truly enjoy being in their company. My husband and I enjoyed our 19th anniversary at the Rhythm of the Sea.
4.2 on September 21, 2011
My wife and I spent a few days at Rhythm of the Sea for our honeymoon. Both of us work and have hectic lives. All I can say is it was a refreshing and relaxing time. Its more than just a B&B, you feel at home. You access to free beach chairs, towels, bikes and out side showers as well as parking. Morning coffee on the deck watching the waves is how we spent our time. There are plenty of things to do and sites to be seen. Our final night was dinner at Oyster Bay and a peaceful and relaxing ride home. You will enjoy your say at Rhythm of the Sea, we had room 7. Kevin and Karla JC, NJ
5 on September 19, 2011
It was a very charming turn of the century room decor. This was very refreshing. The breakfasts were quality food and just the right amount. Now at home, we learned to make a cranberry, apple juice drink that was served at breakfast time. The staff was very courteous and pleasant to chat with. I plan to return in two years.

My mother booked a suite at Rhythm of the Sea for the three of us to celebrate her 67th birthday this summer and it was so lovely. The entire weekend felt like we'd unplugged our crazy lives and gone back in time 100 years to the house's original era -- to quiet afternoons spent on the breezy porch, gazing out across the road at the ocean, reading in the lazy evenings with a glass of wine at our side, strolling down the street to look at the huge beautiful homes along the beachfront. It was just what the doctor ordered - so restful and restorative. The house is beautiful, arts-and-crafts design, large and airy, with gorgeous furnishings appropriate to the period and style. Every detail is attended to, from homemade cookies and iced tea served in the parlor to lovely soaps provided in the bathrooms. The staff are very good at anticipating your needs without interrupting the peace and quiet. There is a refrigerator for guest needs, with soda and water available for purchase. Wine glasses, games, and a billiards table are at your disposal. They even provide bikes and beach towels. The bed in our room was divine and I haven't slept so well in years. I don't know what it was, but that room was magical. Breakfast is very good, if only served at strict times - in fact one hour to be exact. If you are an early riser, you will be well rewarded. If not, there is a wonderful restaurant down the road where you can find brunch. If you are looking for a quiet seaside getaway, this is your place. Beautiful, romantic, relaxing, restorative, it's a real gem.

All I have to say is WOW!!! I originally was going to the bahamas for my anniversary weekend but my wife found this cozy escape called cape may and I thought we were just settling for less. Was I wrong, this by far has been the most relaxing vacation I have had... and I have been around. Rythm of the sea great stay!! Awesome staff felt like we were being catered by a 5 star hotel in NYC... Great breakfast.. very creative and soooo good. ;) Cant wait to go back..
4.6 on September 08, 2011
Our hosts were helpful and knowledgable regarding Cape May's sights,restaurants and activities. Breakfasts were excellent. Rooms very clean and the home is well decorated, bright and open. Ample parking. They have on hand menus from almost every restaurant to help you with dining choices.you don't have to worry about your stay here so enjoy the beach, the people (very friendly), and beautiful Cape May. A very relaxing and interesting community!
5 on September 07, 2011
I have stayed at Rhythm of the Sea countless times now. And each time I go I enjoy it so much. I have recently taken my niece for her 16th birthday and loves it too. Rooms are outstanding. Breakfast and afternoon treats are great too ... It's a treasure to have this B & B so close to home. Can't wait to go back...
4.8 on September 04, 2011
My husband and I have been going to Rhythm of the Sea for 8 years. I never feel that our stays are long enough and I always want to stay longer. We have traveled all over the Caribbean and to Hawaii and stay in B+B's where ever we go. Rhythm of the Sea is the one place that I can fully relax. We arrived that August 25 and within an hour we were told that there was a mandatory evacuation the next day due to Hurricane Irene. We had taken mass transit from NYC, since we don't own a car. It was frightening position to be in. Robyn, Wolfgang and Julie did their best to calm our nerves. A very early breakfast feast was prepared for us on August 26 and Robyn drove us to the bus stop so we can head back to NYC before the impending storm. Once the storm passed, we made it back down to Cape May (this time with a Zip Car) to finish out our vacation. When it was time to leave, I wished we were able to stay longer.
4.8 on August 29, 2011
Just returned from 5 days in our favorite resort town, and it was our first visit to Rhythm of the Sea. Everything was top notch from the breakfasts, baked goods put out in the afternoon, cleaniness, the extreme friendliness of Jullie and Ingrid. They even provide beach towels and bikes to ride. The room was nice, with a side window sea view, and the bath products were wonderful.The other guests were very friendly too. Nothing beats being able to walk across the street to the beach for the day, and sitting on the porch swing watching a full moon on the ocean at night. Can't wait to come back ! Thanks for a wonderful vacation !
4.2 on August 28, 2011
My fiancee and I recently stayed for two nights at ROTS for a short getaway before the start of the school year. We were looking for something relaxing, romantic and close to the beach. ROTS was the perfect choice! Our room was cozy, with a great view of the beach and it is such a quiet, peaceful environment. The food was amazing as well! Julie was very accommodating and helped us pick out restaurants for dinner each night. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return sometime soon!
5 on August 27, 2011
Room was great, very comfortable bed. All the breakfasts were outstanding. Service was also outstanding. Will come back again.
4.8 on August 26, 2011
Spacious rooms, situated across the street from the least crowded section of the beach, this is a terrific B&B.
5 on August 26, 2011
First there was a very warm and friendly greeting on arrival. We had a lovely room with a great view of the sea. The food and service was outstanding. We will definately be back and would recommend it to our friends.
4.2 on August 25, 2011
We needed an escape from the kids and regular life. Rhythm of the Sea was AMAZING. Ingrid was very available to help give advice, assistance and pleasant conversation. The breakfasts were delicious, and the proximity to the beach couldn't be better. You have to book this early and I understand why. It was a fantastic vacation and getaway. Highly recommended.
3.8 on August 09, 2011
Rhythm of the Sea is a wonderful B&B inn that is in a quieter part of Beach Ave and that equals - Peace and relaxation. You can't get any closer to the beach than here and the inn makes it very easy for you to access whatever you need for a day by the ocean. Julie, the inn's manager, is extremely friendly, helpful to guide you with what to do and see as well as dining tips, just a pleasure to talk to. She has alot to do especially the summers with a full house - and makes it look easy. I wish I would have been able to meet Wolfgang and Robyn as well- hopefully the next time. We are looking forward to coming back! Karen, Rob, Marisa
5 on August 04, 2011
This was our 4th stay at Rhythm of the Sea and we will be back again next year. God willing! Restful, peaceful & just wonderful
4.6 on July 31, 2011
This was our 5th time at Rhythm of the Sea and we'll be going back again. Julie is a great host, making sure everyone is having exactly the experience they came for. The food is amazing, both the full breakfasts and the afternoon snacks. The rooms are lovely; the entire house is welcoming. After a day at the beach or just sightseeing, we always look forward to relaxing on the porch to either read or nap. The location is perfect: right across from the beach, walking distance to some great restaurants and close enough to enjoy many attractions, but far enough away to feel some solitude. You can do everything or nothing and have the best vacation ever. It's one of the most relaxing places we've ever been. --Jim and Diane Pavia
4.4 on July 29, 2011
We would definitely return to Rhythm of the Sea. Thanks for making our family vacation so wonderful!!! We can't wait to come back next year!!
4.4 on July 28, 2011
We loved our stay at Rhythm of the Sea. Six nights can be a long time if you're not happy, but our stay was seamless. Rhythm of the Sea is a perfect name for a great place to stay in Cape May.
3.6 on July 22, 2011
Very beautiful B&B and worth the money for what we where looking for. Just seemed as though they skimped on some little things, e.g. the coffee was barely drinkable and didn't supply beach badges.
We are always thrilled when guests choose Rhythm of the Sea out of the many varied places to stay in Cape May. We are sorry that you did not care for our coffee. In this 'Charbucks' craze, coffee is such a personalized taste and as varied as the lodging and eating establishments in Cape May. We brew fresh ground 100% Columbian with an extra measurement than most restaurants would. We find it to be a smooth breakfast blend. It normally get rave reviews. With regards the beach tags, it is illegal for us to transfer seasonal tags and we cannot risk the implications if we do.
- Robyn (innkeeper/owner)
4.8 on July 15, 2011
We've stayed at Rhythm once or twice a year since we honeymooned there in 2002, and it never fails to be a wonderful stay. The rooms are lovely and warm, and Jule and Robyn are wonderful hosts.
4.4 on July 14, 2011
We picked this B&B due to the great location right across from the beach. The delightful Kiwi owner supplies beach chairs, beach towels and bikes free. Breakfast is fresh-cooked each morning 8:30-9:30 (different fixed item each morning). Robyn had great ideas for shopping. The Pier House restaurant nearby is great for dinner.
4.4 on July 13, 2011
My daughter and I returned to Rhythm of the Sea for our third visit, and once again, we were made to feel completely at home. Robyn and her staff are incredibly welcoming and attentive to our every need. This year we stayed in the balcony room, which affords a beautiful view of the beach, and a lovely little balcony from which to enjoy it. The inn is an easy walk to the shops of the main stretch, yet located at a more quiet end of Beach Ave. which we prefer. We do not intend to ever stay anywhere else but Rhythm of the Sea while in Cape May.

This was our third trip to Rhythm of the Sea...it gets better each time. The location is fabulous (right on Beach Ave.), the inn is warm and inviting, the rooms are extremely comfortable, and the breakfasts are divine. Traveling is always a challenge for me since I suffer from celiac's disease which means that I absolutely MUST adhere to a gluten-free diet. Months before our visit to ROTS (all three trips), I contacted Robyn and Julie by e-mail and was assured that there would not be a problem with my required diet. Nonetheless, I contacted them once again shortly before arrival and Julie promptly e-mailed me back and assured me that all would be well...and she wasn't kidding. Every visit has included lovely egg dishes with gluten free toast, fabulous gluten free pancakes (with real maple syrup), and an absolutely divine gluten free Belgian waffle! As if being at the beach isn't close to heaven enough...that waffle was the cherry on top of a wonderful vacation at a fabulous inn! If you are looking for a comfortable inn with easy access to the beach...and innkeepers that are dedicated to making your stay memorable... and a bit away from the hustle and bustle...I would highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea.

My wife and I stayed at "Rythym of the Sea" the past 3 nights and it was fantastic! Julie was a very warm and gracious host to the guests. She has a terrific sense of humor and gift of conversation that makes you feel at home. We met Robyn today and she ,too, was a terrific host to everyone and als had a great sense of humor. When people go on vacation, they want to forget about the real world for a few days. Our stay at Rythym of the Sea made us forget about the real world for a few days and that's what we were looking for! Thank you Robyn and Julie for a really good get away for my wide and I. You have a beautiful and classy Inn and others need to experience it soon! :) Bob and Barb Barone/Pittsburgh,Pa. 6/25/2011

Only disappointed in the breakfast entrees. Found them to be ordinary, not extraordingary! Afternoon tea and 'crumpets' were great, refrigerated water and drinks were wonderful.
3.2 on June 24, 2011
My husband and I stayed at the Rhythm of the Sea recently for a short honeymoon getaway. I must say that the place was absolutely beautiful. It was a very quiet and peaceful stay and that was just what we were looking for. We loved that they had bikes, beach towels and chairs available for use at no extra charge. We definately plan on a returning to Cape May and Rhythm of the Sea. I would really like to stay here during the winter, I think it would be a very cozy and quiet winter getaway. Oh, and you can't forget the breakfast, it was amazing!
4.8 on June 23, 2011
This was our first stay at Rhythm of the Sea and it was very memorable to say the least. Everything was perfect. Our room had a spectacular view of the ocean. The room had all the comforts of home down to the bed and soft pillows. The gourmet breakfasts were out of this world. The service was exceptional. This place is highly recommended and we will be returning at some point in the future.
2.6 on June 20, 2011
Rhythm of the Sea is a beautiful b&b right on the shore in Cape May. I was excited as a school girl that I could see the ocean right from my bed! My complaint about our room is that the ceiling fan wobbled & sqeaked, so we couldn't run it when we were trying to sleep. We saw some of the other unoccupied rooms that were open during the day & their fans were installed securely. I've stayed in some b&b's that serve FANTASTIC breakfasts, and ROTS isn't in that category. Food was okay--first day was egg in a hole, which I make at home fairly often. I had indicated that I'm trying to follow a gluten-free diet, and Julie didn't seem to understand that this means no flour, which is made from wheat. To her credit, she did have some gluten-free bread on hand and made me some scrambled eggs on crepes day, for which I was very appreciative. Also, the coffee was mediocre. Sorry for the harsh criticism, but I've come to expect excellent coffee from b&b's, and this wasn't. One night the power went out for three hours and we were in complete darkness except for the emergency lights, which eventually went off. I called Julie, who seemed annoyed that I was bothering her, and she neglected to let me know that every room is supposed to have a flashlight in it (although our room, #7, did not have one; thankfully my husband had a flashlight in his luggage), which she told another customer who called. I was surprised that the b&b doesn't have a drawerful of battery operated lights somewhere for times like this. I did have a lovely time in Cape May. It was great being able to walk across the street to the beach. However, if I come back, I'll probably shop around more for a place to stay. I'm not saying I wouldn't stay at ROTS again, but I'd probably opt for a different room (didn't realize how much street noise we'd get).
Wow! Thanks for all the comments. 1. Ceiling fan is replaced. It took an hour and was a great upper body workout. 2. Oh, do you make your own brioche too when you make your egg in hole and do you also drizzle white truffle oil and use Havarti cheese? It's the best isn't it! 3. Of course we understand Gluten Free. We take it very seriously and know not to cross contaminate and have many gluten free products. There was gluten in the cookies we made for afternoon refreshments. Gluten 'avoidance' means you can pick and choose? 4. Our coffee is 100% Columbian and a smooth breakfast style and we grind an extra ounce each pot. If your taste is 'Starbucks' blend then you might find it light. 5. When Julie was awoken from a deep sleep please don't misinterpret her grogginess for annoyance. She was not actually told there was a power outage until a frequent guest called her too and she told him about the flashlights in each room and asked him to find you to tell you. You had asked for candles, which we frown upon, and she thought you were enjoying a romantic interlude on the side porch. She was not given concise information to know what you were referring to when you said the porch lights were out. I would like to stress communication. We appreciate knowing any issues that occur during the stay so that we have the opportunity to rectify them while you are here, not to hear on a review site after the fact. The Inn is located on a street, but not a main one. Cape May is on an Island, but not a deserted one. Rhythm of the Sea may not always be a perfect fit for everyone. Try as we may to perfect the art of Innkeeping, we sometimes fall short. We welcome comments and always learn from them.

The inn was nice - airy and open. The innkeeper (Julie) was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious all three days we stayed! We had a beautiful view of the beach and ocean from our room. Unfortunately, we did not hear the "Rhythm of the Sea" b/c we could not keep the windows open at night due to the noise from the street below (cars driving by, people talking as they walked). It seemed like an echo chamber! But overall, a nice place.
That darn road! I wish people could be a little more considerate. Luckily the speed limit is 25 mph and more lucky is that there is only one restaurant to have their patrons walk past us. Imagine how they feel in town!?

The B&B is across the street from the ocean. How lucky can you get??? The room was very clean and comfortable. The food was devine! Julie is an excellant hostess. It is conveniently located far enough away from the hustle of the crowd yet close enough for you to join in the fun. I recommend this Bed and Breakfast to everyone!

We loved the relaxing atmosphere of the Rhythm of the Sea. The food was wonderful, the service was fabulous with great attention to personal care. The porches were a welcoming place to just sit and relax while watching the wlakers and the ocean.

This was our second time at Rhythm of the Sea. At this point, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. The service has been amazing, they provide a phenominal breakfast and afternoon snack (so filling we tending to just eat dinner) and they had bikes for our use that allowed us to rarely use the car! Great location as well! Can't wait to come back!

The best bed and breakfast we have stayed in. The decor is simple but classic. The room was beautiful and spotless. The food was delicious. Cape May is wonderful place to spend a relaxing, romantic weekend. The locatation of the Rythem of the Sea is perfect if you want to be close to the ocean.
3.8 on May 18, 2011
Hospitality was wonderful, food was great, quiet location, and very clean! It was nice they had bikes on the property that we could use as we wanted. A little pricy, but as to be expected with a B&B, especially this one since it was so nice.
4.6 on May 18, 2011
Julie was absolutely fantastic at making sure we had anything we could want. All the food was superbly prepared, right down to the coffee and cookies. The bed and pillows were ok, not great, but this is our first b&b experience and our frame of reference is our memory foam mattress and pillows back home. The decor, the mugs, the toiletries, the robes - everything was first class. We can't wait to go back.

Rhythm of the Sea was a great weekend get away. We had the room overlooking the ocean with a private balcony. The room and bath were small, but very comfortable. If street traffic bothers you, you will hear it. Robyn was a great host and the breakfast was fantastic. Will definitely repeat.

Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. The only issue I had was there was a musty order in the building. Julie was wonderful, informative and extremely helpful. Staff was attentive.
So glad you had a relaxing time. Our house does have a very distint smell. I noticed it the very first time I walked into the building. It is due to all the wood, so rest assured there is no must here...except, you MUST return!!!

Rythym of the Sea is in the best setting for someone who wants to be right by the ocean. There is nothing to block the view between this beautiful B&B and the ocean. And access to the beach is just steps away. We found this to be a very pleasant atmosphere and the owners & staff were very helpful and accomodating. I love the decor and found everything extremely well cared for. Great sleeping with the windows open to hear the sounds of the ocean and the bed was super comfortable. We stayed on a non-weekend in May (off-season). I look forward to staying here again.

After losing our favorite Cape May B & B to a condo conversion (Columns by the Sea), we tried Rhythm. We were not disappointed and found our room to be a cut above those we had stayed in at Columns. The breakfasts are served to you over a one-hour period giving some flexibility. They are also served at tables of four which I found to be a nice change from the large single table of many other establishments. I would suggest room #1 with the private balcony as it provides exceptional views of the beach, ocean and main street.
5 on April 30, 2011
The Rhythm is our place to escape the hustle and bustle of life. We have been coming to this B+B since 1999, and continue to come back every year. The location, breakfast and comfort brings us back year after year. There is no better place to relax than the Rhythm's. Also the spring flowers were amazing this year at the inn and throughout Cape May.
4.8 on April 11, 2011
The Rhythm of the Sea is a wonderful place to stay when you are in Cape May. Julie was so welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were super delicious. It was very quiet as I was the only guest on one of my nights there but I felt secure and comfortable. The ocean views were great and my room with a fireplace was warm and cozy. Would definitely stay there again if I have the chance.

Great time away! Will be back - soon. Wonderful food and overall experience. Only negative - I couldn't stay longer!
4.6 on March 30, 2011
A fabulous place for a quiet getaway. We had an oceanfront room, with a fabulouse view. In comparison to some other places it was a bit pricey for off season, however you are treated like royalty, the home is spotless and the breakfasts wonderful. We highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea
5 on March 30, 2011
From the very first phone call to Robyn, I was beyond impressed. She was pleasant and accomodating. We spent our anniversary weekend with them and felt like we were old friends when we left. Julie, the manager, was also so sweet and very helpful upon arrival. Our room was so spacious and absolutely beautiful. We loved the pooltable and fireplace as well as the chats we had with Robyn, Wolfgang and the 2 mascots Odie and Lulu. We can't say enough about their warm hospitality, divine breakfasts and gorgeous inn. We are already trying to plan our summer escape to Rhythm of the Sea.
The best part about being an Innkeeper is the wonderful people you meet. We never know who is going to walk across our threshold but we always seem to click on so many different levels. It's the ultimate when we can sit one on one for fun conversation. The pooches are not here too often unfortunately. But they do add another dimention with their antics - oh, and Wolfgang's!!!

My boyfriend and I visited Rhythm of the Sea for a weekend getaway and absolutely fell in love with the place! Julie was our innkeeper and she is truly spectacular! The inn is glorious, the breakfast to die for...I highly recommend Rhythm of the Sea as the go-to B&B in Cape May.
5 on January 01, 2011
My wife and I spent two wonderful evenings just after the blizzard of 2010. We experienced incredible hospitality and accomodations, including filling and scrumptious breakfasts. We highly recommend this getaway for those who are seeking a great place of respite with great things to do at a relaxed pace.
Wasn't that storm a doosie! We were saying we lived in the snowy tundra. We love our Winter guests especially those who don't let a 'little' blizzard get in their way. No matter what the weather throws at us outside, it is always sunny and toastie inside the Rhythm of the Sea!!

Our stay at Rhythm of the Sea for y husband's birthday was completely wonderful and we would return again in a heartbeat. We had high expectations in every respect and they were all met. The overall atmosphere in particular - the comfort of the common areas, beautiful views and sounds of the ocean, and restfulness of our room - were truly outstanding. Plus, we truly enjoyed chatting with our warm, welcoming hosts and their adorable long-haired dachsunds.
4.8 on December 28, 2010
My husband and I were married at the Rhythm of the Sea in the "off season" of 2008. We rented out the Inn for our family and wedding party for the whole of our wedding weekend. The pricing was beyond reasonable for all that was included with our wedding package. Robyn and Wolfgang made us and all of our guests feel completely at home. In fact, we even had guests ask if the Inn was my family's beach house! The service throughout the weekend and cocktail reception was outstanding. People still rave about our tastful small wedding and Wolfgang's delicious fare. Robyn was brilliant when it came to working with all of our special requests as well. We hope to be able to spend an anniversary at the Rhythm of the Sea in the near future.
5 on December 11, 2010
The food surpassed our expectations. The pictures on the website don't do the rooms justice because they were beyond amazing. The hostess was very helpful and I can't recommend The Rythmn of the Sea enough.

Had a great, relaxing stay. Beautiful B&B--I've been staying in B&Bs in Cape May for the last twenty years and this is hands-down my favorite. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms with stunning views of the ocean.

I was expecting a lot more. Rhythm of the Sea was just average. It wasn't bad but should be so much better for the money they charge.

Wolfgang, Robyn & Julie are exceptional hosts. Their warm and friendly personality is an absolute compliment to a great bed & breakfast that eptiomizes comfort, cleaniness and a genuine "I'm home" type of atmosphere. Wolfgang's late afternoon home made & baked "snacks" served by the fireplace with fresh hot coffee and tea only serves to reinforce what a great place this is. This will make our 9th year in a row that we have stayed with Robyn & Wolfie.......they are like family now. We love this place and look forward to our stay each and every time. I highly recommend this one of a kind bed & breakfast.
Wow! We are so appreciative of such a lovely review! The fact that it is from a guest that we have hosted for nine times just thrills us. We have over 100 years combined in the hospitality industry and we know that our returning guests are the lifeblood of what we do. We also are aware that you have many choices for your stay in Cape May and we are always honored when we are chosen time and time again! We genuinely strive to make each guest's stay as memorable as you described. We thank you for sharing your kind sentiments with us and potential new guests. Robyn, Wolfgang and Julie

This is our 3rd year staying at the Rhythm of the Sea. We absolutely love staying in the carriage house. It provides ample space for our 1 1/2 year old son to play around in. The layout of the room also allows us to put our son down for the night in the bedroom while we hang out in the front room and watch movies without disturbing him. Breakfast is delivered to us at 9am (by our request) and we are literally a hop, skip, and jump away from the beach! The Innkeepers, Robyn and Wolfgang Wendt & Julie McElroy are WONDERFUL and VERY helpful with getting you acquanted with the area.
5 on November 16, 2010
We enjoyed staying at this B & B for numerous reasons: the Arts and Craft decor is beautifully appointed; the breakfasts were sumptous and delicious; and the proximity of our room to the view of the ocean was perfect and the proprietors exceeded all of our expectations for superlative service. We will return !
3.0 on November 11, 2010
I thought the breakfast would have had a buffet component along with a specialty item choice such as how you want your eggs cooked. Also, free WiFi would have been a good feature.
We appreciate your comments. Each Bed and Breakfast offers their own twist on breakfast and we are lucky to have a professional chef in our kitchen who prepares guests breakfast individually, prepared to their liking. Advance notice is nice for specific preferences and we are happy to accommodate. We feel a buffet item would detract from his expertise and besides, we like to serve you! We sure do have free WiFi too.

Although we found the accomodations to be a bit pricey, I guess it was standard for Cape May B&B. The room was small, but the living space of the B&B more than made up for it with wonderful views of the ocean. The breakfast was elegantly prepared and filling. Being across the street form a walk on the beach was the highlight of our stay.

My new bride and I went to Rhythm of the Sea for a quick getaway after our wedding and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Robyn was a wonderful host and Wolfgang's breakfast was scrumptious. Robyn and Julie were both very helpful when it came to restaurant/activity suggestions. I would definitely recommend Rhythm of the Sea to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Cape May.
3.0 on October 14, 2010
Perfect weather. Perfect location oceanfront. The innkeeper accommodated our vegetarian diet by making us oatmeal while the other guests had crab meat omelettes and crab meat breakfast burritos. The decor was a welcome departure from the flowery Victorian decor of the rest of Cape May. Overall, a very nice place to stay.

A very nice walk to Jackson St. on a beautiful sunny Fall day.

If you're visiting Cape May, be sure to stay at Rhythm of the Sea. The rooms are beautiful, most with sea views, and the food outstanding. Robin and Wolfgang and of course, Julie, gave me a beautiful space to de-stress from life and I met some wonderful people staying at the Inn. I sat on their spacious front porch or by my bedroom window, just letting the "rhythm" of the sea lull me into peace.

Wonderful 2 days at the Inn. The location across from the beach is fantastic... great oceans views from bed! We stayed in room #1 with the balcony and enjoyed every minute. Cape May is a super town to bike around and explore. We will be back!

Nice rooms, very clean, nice breakfasts. However, the afternoon tea/cookies, etc we never had. Came off beach at the required time but no snacks, no staff around. That was our only disappointment I would suggest taking your own beach chairs and beach towels.
4.8 on December 24, 2009
Our July 2009 stay at Rhythm of the Sea was our first but certainly not our last. This B&B is the perfect spot in Cape May to get away from it all but still be within a short stroll or bike ride to the heart of town. Our stay was during the peak summer season and the area surrounding the inn never seemed crowded. The beach is great and the inn itself was casually luxurious. Robyn and Wolfgang's service and attention to detail were unsurpassed. They are genuinely nice people who go out of their way to please their guests. My wife and I stayed in room #4 with a nice side ocean view. The bed was very comfortable and the Stickley furnishings were of the highest quality. I am absolutely shocked that another reviewer rated every single category as unsatisfactory. Some people are just impossible to please, it really broke my heart to read that review because it's so obvious that the owners put so much effort into ensuring that everyone enjoys their stay. Please ignore that totally unfair review and look at the trend among the dozens of reviews before it, nearly everyone loves this place and for good reason. We live in upstate New York and would gladly make the 5-hour drive again and again to this place. If you're looking for an unpretentious, relaxing, comfortable getway in beautiful surroundings, look no further than this B&B. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the staff took the time to connect with each guest personally, you really feel valued here. My wife has a serious food allergy and, though it was unexpected, they went totally above and beyond to accommodate her to make sure she had a nice breakfast each day. They even shopped for special ingredients for her. How many places would have done that? Not many! Just about every other guest we spoke with had stayed there half a dozen times, and that says something about the consistent quality of this inn. We're already looking forward to our next stay in the summer of 2010.
4.4 on October 25, 2009
This was our first trip to Cape May and we loved Rhythm of the Sea. The breakfasts were amazing! I would be back for those alone...but then add in being right across from the ocean and just a short jaunt to the shops. Robin even accomodated us with an earlier breakfast because we had a reserved ferry time for our return trip. I could not have asked for more hospitality and that's a lot coming from a southern girl. We usually go to Charlestown, SC or Savannah, GA for our Bed and Breakfast trips but Rhythm of the Sea rivaled our favorite B&Bs there! We'll be back!

Room was dark and dingy. Bathroom had a shower stall that was built for midget. TV was so small I needed a telescope to see it from across the room. The bed was very squeaky. Front porch only had seating for six people to relax. Breakfast was only served from 8:30 to 9:30 am, no exceptions. This unfortunately turned us off from returning to Cape May.
Thank you for your gift of constructive criticism. We appreciate knowing the things you brought to our attention as we are constantly working to improve our facility. The ‘Atlantic Vista’ room is sun-lit all day long and is ‘enveloped in a bold floral, rich mocha and sunny hues of yellow’. ‘Dark and dingy’ is subjective. Even though the ensuite bathroom is a nice size the shower stall is 28” with no way to enlarge it. We will post the stall size on our web site so that there are no surprises for our guests of more stature. The bed squeak was an easy fix! Our ‘Stickley’ beds are made to the highest standards of heirloom quality and all solid wood. Sometimes the humidity of the sea air can cause this to happen. Thanks to your comment regarding the TV a larger television has been installed on a TV cabinet. Our front porches face the beach. There are four groupings of seats spread between three porches enough for 10-12 guests. It is rare that all of these seats are in use at once. In an effort to accommodate everyone, breakfast is served, and individually cooked, between 8:30 am and 9:30 am. As a small facility, we only have staff for a few hours in the morning and then the business day begins! There are no rules, simply guidelines. Our food is one of the main draws that bring guests back year after year. It is a pity you did not mention anything at check in, when we told you our breakfast times, about your preference for a later breakfast because we have made exceptions before. We hope that you will not let your dissatisfaction with us deter you from visiting Cape May again. With 62 bed and breakfasts in town there is bound to be something to accommodate your needs. It is a pity we were not given the opportunity to rectify these issues during your stay. Perhaps then you would have experienced a positive visit and could have reviewed us more graciously. We wish you the very best. Robyn Wendt Innkeeper/Owner

We found Rhythm of the Sea not only beautiful, but very comfortable, homey and romantic - everything we were looking for in a relaxing getaway. The rooms, oceanfront views and food were all fabulous. But it was the innkeepers, Wolff and Robyn, who really made the trip special. From the moment we arrived, they were like old friends. They are both fascinating, warm and funny, and the times we spent chatting over coffee or a glass of wine were our most memorable moments of the trip. We only met the manager, Julie, at rthe end of our stay, but she was equally friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back!

Neophytes to the Jersey Shore Bed & Breakfast experience, we were initiated when invited to a wedding in Cape May. Considering my husband's propensity for always being able to find something wrong no matter where we go, I was not going into the weekend with great expectations; what a magnificent surprise!!!!!!!! From the moment we walked through the entrance and were greeted by Julie, to the sad farewell to Robyn & "Otie", we were made to feel more welcome than I thought possible. Wolfgang's breakfasts were amazing, the rooms serene, quiet, and comfortable. We are endlessly grateful to have discovered this Cape May gem, and are so anticipating our next visit. Thank you Wolfgang, Robyn and Julie for all that you did to provide us with a superb escape!

The room was wonderful, the hosts were wonderful, and the atmosphere was wonderful. I spent a weekend at the bed and breakfast and it was nothing shy of perfect. The hosts were kind and pleasant. It was simply the best atmosphere for a weekend away from it all. You won’t be disappointed with this establishment.

My husband and I stayed at the Rhythm of the Sea for our honeymoon weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place. The room was beautiful and having the view of the ocean from bed was spectacular. Robyn, Wolfgang, and Julie were gracious hosts who made us feel like visiting family, not customers. It was truly like spending time with old friends. The breakfasts were the highlight of our dining for the weekend (and sometimes required a nap after eating). We will definitely be planning another stay!

My husband & I stayed at Rhythm of the Sea for our "Babymoon" - one last getaway before our first child was born. It was such a wonderful, relaxing few days! The views are amazing, we had fun playing pool, and the best part of our stay is a tie between the fabulous meals we ate & the wonderful hosts who served them to us. Robyn & Wolf were so friendly & welcoming! And our authentic German dinner was probably the best meal I've ever had! Though our stay was all too brief, we carry with us such wonderful memories from our time there (2 years later). I know we'll return again someday. ~Heather Mazzeo Lumberton, NJ

The only downfall to our stay was that we did not book 3 nights. We were able to relax and enjoy our trip because our hosts were so gracious. Julie made us feel like we were at home and meeting Robin was like seeing an old friend. The room was great and the beach was perfect. Use of the bikes and beach stuff was a great perk. Our dinner at The Pier House was great however, if you are looking for a secluded romantic experience I would check other spots. By the way, breakfast was oustanding. We can not wait for another opportunity to spend some time in our new home away from home.

Rhythm of the Sea is our favorite Bed and Breakfast. Everything is peaceful and lovely.

This was our first trip to Cape May and there were so many B & B's to choose from - luckily we chose this one, based on the description on their website.
