BEACH FRONT VACATION COTTAGE - Pet Friendly Beach with fenced in yard!!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


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. Our property actually consists of four lots, but we only have two cottages on it, leaving ample yard space. 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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay. We love Cape May and coming here this time of year is our favorite. We did some shopping for the Holidays, walked the beach with our dogs, went fishing everyday and of course we didn't miss one sunset. Our two dogs loved the oversized fenced yard. They never wanted to come inside! But most of all we enjoyed just doing nothing at all. The weather was Great!! This home had everything we needed. Thank you so much for your friendly hospitality. We would love to stay here again and hope to be back soon!! JG and DG

Gorgeous sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay here. We especially loved the closed in porch which faces the bay, and spent a lot of time watching the birds over the water and the incredible sunsets. The house itself is very well equipped, and we lacked for nothing. We did our own cooking, and had everything we needed.

We didn’t use all the beach gear, but there was plenty available!

We would definitely stay here again.

What a great place to make memories. Waking up every morning walking on the beach and then spending your evenings on the beach watching the sunset. Honestly, no reason to leave the house!!! Can't wait to return!

Exactly as described .

enjoyed our stay as the rental held no surprises for us. Everything was exactly as described. I felt like I was at the Jersey shore from an earlier time period when everything moved slower.

Everything was what it said it would be.Beautiful sunsets every night, great place to take walks and the neighbors who live there are very friendly. The only true draw back, and it may not be their fault, the WiFi is poor at best. Otherwise. it was a great week!

Owner's Response: We're so happy you enjoyed our quiet beach community and we hope you will come visit again in the near future! It was our pleasure to host such a wonderful family! I wish I could guarantee that the WiFi issue will be resolved, but we are working on it. We pay for high speed internet/cable with XFINITY and are hoping they can resolve our wireless router issues. Fingers crossed! Wishing you well and please reach out anytime to reserve your next vacation! Erin

Location was amazing with great views - steps to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location and property were perfect for us and our 2 dogs. The sun porch directly facing the water was great for dolphin watching and Sunsets. Appreciated the gift basket very much and the house was stocked with everyday condiments. Also loved the sea kayak which we took out and got up close and personal with the dolphins. The house And furniture are dated but perfect for a laid back beach vacation. And the beds were a bit uncomfortable and could use new mattresses. Other than that we loved the location of Town Bank and will definitely be back next year. Thank you Prowe Family!
