Cape May house description

CHECK IT OUT!! CHRISTMAS WEEK IS AVAILABLE TO FAMILIES ONLY FOR $2100. NEW YEARS WEEK IS AVAILABLE TO FAMILIES ONLY FOR $2100. PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT AVAILABILITY FOR 2015.

OUR WEEKLY RENTALS START AND END ON SUNDAYS. THIS MINIMIZES TRAFFIC DELAYS INTO AND OUT OF THE CAPE MAY AREA FOR OUR RENTERS.


SPECIAL NOTE: JUST PRIOR TO THE 2013 RENTAL SEASON- IN APRIL AND MAY, WE WERE BUSY MAKING SOME SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS TO THE HOUSE. SPECIFICALLY, A NEW OUTSIDE SHOWER WAS ADDED AND BOTH BATHROOMS WERE COMPLETED RENOVATED. NEW PORCELAIN TILE FLOORS AND TILE WALLS AROUND THE SHOWER AND TUB GIVE THEM A SLEEK AND MODERN LOOK. WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THEM.

ALL RENTALS ARE REQUIRED TO POST $200 REFUNDABLE SECURITY DEPOSIT.

PRIME LOCATION!! / Fenced Yard with Gated Driveway / One-Story Living / Very Clean / Very Comfortable / Pet Friendly / Child Friendly too!! / A Great Bay front Value!!

Why stay in a hotel room, small condo or a house looking out at other houses when you can have this bay and sunset view and a nice single house for the same price or less?

Your family and friends are sure to enjoy a very pleasant stay at this comfortable seashore home near Cape May right on the Delaware Bay in Historic Townbank, New Jersey. Townbank is the birthplace of South Jersey, having been settled in 1635 as a whalers' village. This bay front ranch-style home is just one mile north of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal. It is very comfortable and welcoming to our vacationing guests. The location and bay views are just incredible.

This beach house features four nicely decorated and furnished bedrooms(1K,1Q,1F,2T), two bathrooms-one with full-sized tub/shower and one with shower and a nice sun room on the back end of the house. The kitchen, dining and living room area features an open floor plan and high ceilings. A full laundry center is also included. The house has new central air-conditioning for your comfort on those hot/humid summer days. There are also ceiling fans in every room.

Ferry boats are easily visible from the house as are porpoises, fishing boats, occasional cruise ships from the Port of Philadelphia, and some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever see anywhere!!

The bay side beaches right in front of the house, while not protected by beach patrols, are very nice and are rarely crowded. They are fully accessible year-round and are just a 150 'foot' walk from the front door. Getting yourself and the kids to the beach has never been easier. If you prefer protected beaches, Cape May is a quick and easy five minute drive away. We even provide 4 beach tags for our guests' use.

There are two jetties very conveniently located near the house for the fishermen in the crowd. Or you can enjoy surf fishing or kayaking from the beach just across the street. Party boats and boat rentals are available just five minutes away at the Cape May Marina.

There are plenty of nice restaurants all around the area in all price ranges, but seashore barbeques are always very special too. So the gas grill is ready to go whenever you prefer to stay at home and have dinner while watching the incredible sunsets for which you will have a front row seat every evening. You'll definitely want to take some pictures to bring back home with you.

Harpoon Henry's is a popular local watering hole just a half-mile south of the house. It is a fun place to have a cocktail and appetizers while enjoying live music, and watching sunsets, other vacationers and locals do their thing. We're sure that a vacation in this great part of the South Jersey shore won't be your last once you've spent some time at this Townbank paradise.

If you wish to bring your pets, they are welcome if housebroken and well behaved. NO EXTRA CHARGE IS MADE FOR PETS.

NEW FOR 2008- New gas heat and central air conditioning, all new interior doors, new leather living room furniture, new windows as well as other improvements to a house that has already had our past guests raving. Wait until you see their comments in our guest book.

NEW FOR 2009- New larger bay front Master Bedroom with 4 windows with bay views and new flat panel HDTV. Also, new carpeting in all bedrooms and hallway. Beautiful!!

NEW FOR 2011- Updated kitchen including professionally painted cabinets and new granite counter tops and glass tile back splash..

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: My wife and I have owned a beach house in South Jersey since 1999 after renting there for many years. Cape May County has always been a comfortable and enjoyable place for family vacations. After owning a condo in Avalon, we sold it and were able to buy a single home in January, 2005, right on the bay in Townbank, NJ a tiny suburb of Cape May that seemed very special the first time we traveled there.

              Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
              Townbank, NJ is a tiny suburb of Cape May. It was founded in 1635 as a whalers' village and is considered to be the birthplace of South Jersey. We love the area because it is not crowded and is an easy drive to the center of Cape May city which is a real city that is open 12 months a year, unlike other resort towns in Cape May County which practically close down after Labor Day. Townbank is actually a well kept secret which we hope will stay that way.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The location of the house is just wonderful and offers great bay and sunsets views throughout the year. There is a fenced in yard with a gated driveway and a nicely landscaped lot. It is a family area and there are no real 'party houses' or high rise hotels nearby as there are in some vacation towns. Our latest renovation combined two small front bedrooms into a single large master bedroom that fronts the Delaware Bay. It has surpassed our wildest dreams and is now one of the highlights of the house. A recent vacationing guest told me, 'the pictures don't do this place justice'. What a nice thing to hear.
