About the property

2 Bed/1 Bath/ Sleeps 6

Beach front cottage located directly on Shore Road in historic Townbank offers such a perfect beach stay you will want to return year after year! Whether you are looking for a family vacation, couple's retreat or simply to reconnect with a group of friends, this property is equipped and located to provide wonderful memories that will last your lifetime.

This is a two bedroom, one full bath home, which comfortably sleeps six and is located right on Shore Road with an amazing view above the dunes from the sun room for daily dolphin and sunset watching. Townbank is affectionately known as “Sunset Beach” and offers spectacular sunset viewing every night. People come from all around just to watch the grand colors provided nightly as the sun sinks slowly into the horizon over the water. Staying here ensures you the premium, unobstructed view of this daily event from both inside the home or the fenced in yard at no additional cost!

The home does offer central air conditioning, however guests equally enjoy opening the many windows to fully experience the ocean breeze, peaceful lapping waves and sea gulls beckoning you to enjoy your day on the quiet, non-crowded beach which awaits just outside your door. This area is perfect for strolling about on the beach (no beach tags required!) or biking along the safe shore road that runs directly in front of the cottage.

The Cape May-Lewis Ferry is just about one mile down the road. If you want to hit the boardwalk at night, Cape May is 10 minutes by car and Wildwood is just as close. Nearby there are wineries, shops, galleries and gourmet restaurants. Harpoon Henry's, a beach front restaurant and tiki bar, is just a few blocks walk down the road and a great place to dine in a Key-West type environment if you aren't in the mood to cook! You can have a few drinks and simply walk home; no need to worry about driving! A quick trip to the market is only a few minutes by car. Major highways are accessible just outside of town, yet traffic is not a problem while staying in Townbank. The “small town feel” is comforting while strolling or biking throughout the town.

The house is comfortably furnished for your enjoyment and offers updated kitchen appliances, two bedrooms plus additional sleeping in pull-out beds. The eat in dining room for six is beautifully furnished and is next to the living room where you can relax watching cable television, reading or chatting. The grand sun room offers additional dining while overlooking the water, or just a place to hang-out and watch the dolphins or sunsets.

The cottage sits in a large, white picket fenced in yard and offers plenty of space for outdoor fun. Beach access is simply through the gate,down the short, gently sloping dune and you are on our quiet, peaceful, non-crowded beach. It's easy to go back and forth from your “beach camp” to access a snack, drink or the bathroom as you enjoy the tranquil setting of what seems to be a private beach.

Booking your vacation couldn't be simpler! Check our calendar for availability and rate that are extremely reasonable for beach front property.

About PROWE Enterprises

Why PROWE Enterprises chose Southern Shore Region

Beach front homes capture a unique experience that words cannot express. You owe it to yourself to live on the water, at least one time in your lifetime! Our cottage offers country farmhouse charm overlooking the beach. Open the windows and enjoy the sounds of gentle waves coming in breathe in the healthy ocean air. Watch amazing sunsets from the yard, on the beach or from the sunroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home really hit a home run for the location especially for the fireworks that we were able to just sit in the yard and watch. What a pleasure it was to stay at your cottage. Ideal for events, water sports, family/friends gatherings. Look forward to coming back.

Perfect Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My SO and I had a perfect long weekend at this Cape May home. For us, it was all about location, directly across from the bay where we could enjoy amazing sunsets and just a shortly step to the beach. We loved that we could walk to Harpoon Henry's to enjoy the sunset with drinks or dinner. Hadn't stayed in North Cape May before but would definitely do it again. The home was somewhat dated, and the beds small, but it was very clean and as advertised, and the owner responsive and helpful.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I loved the location of this property. Harpoon Henry's is great if you have an animal but the food was just ok.

The cottage is older but the property itself was perfect. If it did not rain when I was there I would spent more time on the beach and properity. Instead we went out a lot. We did get to enjoy One good day and night on the beach. Beautiful

The location of the property was excellant. We had access to all of the important areas of Cape May

  • 5 of 5

view and location to a private beach (only about 100 feet away) was worth the money. The house was relatively small but nice. If you have only 1 car, parking is not a problem but if you have 2 cars it becomes a problem. There is another house on the same prosperty and if it is occupied parking can become a problem.

Best place on the Jersey Shore

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Gary's place and we loved it!! The location CANNOT be beat. The house has everything you need with the sea kayak to boot!

We all had such a wonderful relaxing holiday without the hussle and bussle of the tourist areas in downtown Cape May.

We hope to be back again!!!
