Why susan tracey chose Southern Shore Region

We love the Delaware Bay side of the cape. We have had a home on Englewood Rd. just up the street from the cottage for over 25 years (first a summer home and now a permanent home). We recently purchased and renovated Townbank Cottage because we knew the value of a great neighborhood. Townbank was a special secret for years and others are just starting to discover why we and others love it.

What makes this cottage unique

When you are in this home you are close enough to the hustle/bustle of Cape May and Wildwood, but you can sit on our beach or in the yard and just enjoy your well earned peaceful vacation. Nothing beats using the enclosed outside shower on a warm (even cool) day!! We supply beach chairs and a few bikes and everything you need in the kitchen from crockpot to waffle maker. Dog walker available .

Charming house with an amazing and responsive host

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at Town Bank - walkable to a quiet, dog-friendly beach, and a short drive to Cape May - it was a great option for my family, our friends, and their four pawed pal. The house was really charming, nicely apportioned, and clearly well cared for. It also had an ideal layout for groups with young kids. When we put our daughter down to bed, we were able to hang out in the sunroom at the other end of the house, and not have to worry that we would keep her awake.

Susan was also incredibly responsive throughout the weekend - making sure that everything was in order, and ensuring us that they would be able to assist if any problem arose. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Well maintained, very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated, had several comfortable gathering places to relax, mingle. Location very convenient to the bay beach.

The hosts were very helpful, especially with the unexpected 'blizzard' conditions we encountered. We would definitely like to stay here again!

Pleasant, peaceful and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Susan's Town Bank house over New Year's weekend - my husband and I, our three college children, and our Labrador Retriever. We loved it! It was comfortable, clean, there was plenty of room, and the kitchen had all we needed for a few meal preps. The location was ideal - a couple of blocks walk along quaint houses to the beach at the bay was so nice in the mornings with the dog, and for beautiful sunsets in the evening. We were happy not to be in the middle of Cape May proper, which is just a 10 minute drive from the house. Susan was a great hostess. We didn't meet her in person, but didn't need to. She checked on our arrival status and made sure we had everything we needed and could get in the house. She gave us good recommendations for nearby nature walks (which we did and enjoyed), and places to eat.

If you like the shore during the off season, as we do, this is the perfect place to stay! We would stay again.

Nice clean home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the the short, pleasant walk to the beach. Home is close to all major attractions, however, spending a day reading, or relaxing was pleasant as well. We were happy to meet the owners, as they were helpful with ideas of things to do/or see. A very relaxing, wonderful stay for the holiday. Brenda.

Great Location, Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the beach cottage for four nights and had a great time. The house is decorated with beach décor and is very comfortable and pet friendly. Everything is in great condition and the kitchen had everything that was needed. The location is perfect, in a quiet neighborhood and close to everything (Cape May-Lewes ferry, restaurants, two blocks from the beach, wineries, breweries, Cape May, Higbee beach, Sunset beach and much more). My dog loved the back yard and really enjoyed exploring on the beach. There were plenty of pet friendly places that he was able to visit. He highly recommends the grilled chicken breast from the "doggie menu" at the Beach Shack in Cape May! Complete with his own water dish! Susan was wonderful, friendly and very responsive if questions arose during the stay. Definitely would recommend the Townbank cottage and would love to return next year! Thank you Susan and Michael!
