Summer Rentals are Quickly Disappearing!

Image
If you have not secured a summer rental yet for 2021, you could be in trouble. The number of rental homes is dwindling due to new Construction and the Pandemic. Also, past rental owners have decided to use the property themselves. Avalon used to have over 1200 homes for rent but, we are now between 900- 1000. With last years bookings for 2021, new rentals and fewer homes, it is getting difficult to find a rental. My word of advice to everyone looking to rent this summer, BOOK NOW!

Covid-19 in Avalon/Stone Harbor...what's happening...

Image
While our Country is soaring with the virus, Avalon and Stone Harbor seem to be dealing pretty well with it. I might start by saying that locals and visitors take mask wearing seriously. You cannot get into a store or restaurant without a mask. People even walk the boardwalk in Avalon with a mask even though no one may be around them. So it is not surprising then that since February/March of 2019, (11 months) Avalon has had only 70 cases of Covid 19 with 3 active as of January 23rd and Stone Harbor a total of 33 with 1 active presently. Overall Cape May County has had a total of 5554 cases with most of the cases in Lower, Middle and Upper Township. Initially the County only had Avalon Community Hall giving the Covid-19 shots but 3 more centers have been opened up: the Dept of Health in Crest Haven, Shop Rite stores in Rio Grande and Marmora. You will need to call for an appt. There are no walk-ins. Stay Safe! Mriam Kauterman, 609-602-8470 cell

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! The heart of the world beats strongly because of the undying strength and dedication of all mothers.  We take for granted these core qualities.  We don't realize what this world would be like without moms.  They keep not only their families together but bottom line...the world together.  The love that is given to their children is unequivocally the strongest weapon in the world.  Take that spontaneous love and multiply it by over 300 billion moms.  This is undoubtedly what causes Peace in the World.  Peace in the Family and Peace within each soul.  There is so much more depth to those three words...Happy Mother's Day.
