You're sure to enjoy your stay in our lovely, freshly painted inside and out cottage with new porch windows and eclectic décor. The cottage is surrounded by lush, beautiful gardens, tranquil water features and an old-fashion tree swing. It sits just steps from the bay and the best sunsets you can imagine.Your coffee will still be hot when you step down to the beach to read the morning paper and do some dolphin watching. After you arrive back at the cottage from a day at the beach, perhaps you will want to surround yourself with nature by relaxing in our lovely butterfly and hummingbird gardens.You can grill up lunch and enjoy it in the screen house. Just picture yourself enjoying pre-dinner cocktails by the pond terrace listening to the sounds of the waterfall. After watching the sunset, you and the family can gather around the firepit and roast some marshmallows and listen to the distant horn of the ferry. Creating great meals right at the cottage is a delight with our chef's kitchen and you can enhance your favorite dishes by helping yourself to the various organic herbs and edible flowers that I grow. Feel comfortable knowing that I do not use any chemicals anywhere in the garden.

Our natural bay-beach is just steps away, FREE, and abounds with wildflowers, dune grasses, butterflies, and dolphins. Whether it's for morning coffee, sunbathing, fishing or crabbing off the jetties, or a glass of wine in the evening, you will find the bay calling to you to enjoy it's many pleasures...beautiful sunsets, dolphin sightings, beach glass hunting , fishing or bird watching. Our lovely beach has warm, calm waters perfect for swimming and keeping an eye on the little ones.

There is always something to do, or you can just do nothing. Music, fun, tropical drinks and casual food just blocks away at the beach bar at Harpoon Henry's or at the many fine restaurants in Cape May. Wildlife preserves for bird watching are minutes away, Wildwood boardwalk 15 minutes, Cape May 10 minutes, the Zoo is 15 minutes away, and several wineries just 2 minutes away. Our area of the Jersey shore has something to entertain everyone and every vacation interest.

About Anne Marie

Some of our best memories are the times we've spent with family and friends in Townbank. For me, there are many relaxing, pleasurable activities such as biking on the flat, picturesque roads, walking the beautiful, natural beaches, enjoying the gardens, kayaking, and shopping the specialty shops of Cape May. Leisure time can also be spent hunting for 'treasures' at the many antique shops and yard sales. We enjoy the family oriented neighborhood, quaint country church for Sunday services, great wines right out of the boutique vineyards nearby, and wonderfully farm-fresh produce and seafood.

Anne Marie purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Anne Marie chose Cape May

It only took one visit to Townbank and we were hooked. You, too, will fall in love with this quaint family community of single homes on tree lined roads with some of the oldest and largest trees in South Jersey. My family used to come here when I was a child and it hasn't changed very much since then. We fell in love with our cottage in the village of Townbank, bought it immediately, and have been working on it lovingly ever since. We enjoy every moment being there and so will you. You won't want to leave, I promise!

What makes this cottage unique

What we love about our cottage's location is the proximity to historic Cape May. A lovely seaside resort resplendent with beautiful Victorican homes, wonderful shopping, sightseeing and whaling excursions. If you enjoy the excitement of the rides and games on the boardwalk,then you will love Wildwood...we are so close, yet so far from the those maddening crowds. In Townbank, we have absolutely no problems with traffic, parking, or late-night revelers. You'll have crickets, cicadas and the distant horn of the ferry to serenade you while you're star watching around the fire pit. Not really a beach person, but still want to experience a great getaway? You can have nature take you away by just spending time in our shaded, lush gardens. We decorated the cottage comfortably so you will feel right at home. If you miss one of Townbank's world-famous sunsets, don't worry, we have a beautiful 25' mural of a gorgeous sunset that you can see anytime...night or day. Come spend your vacation in our very special, very peaceful Garden Cottage by the Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at this cute cottage. We were very close to the beach and could make it back for potty breaks and lunch and snacks. The beach is quite and the water was just right for my toddlers.

Gem of a place, great for families looking for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, kids and I spent a week here this past summer and we had a very fun and relaxing stay. The cottage is warm, well-kept and welcoming, the gardens lush and beautiful. The pictures don't really do the garden justice! My wife and I loved the professional chef's kitchen, morning coffee on the sun porch, the fresh flowers and bubbling fountains in the garden. My kids (ages 5 & 9) loved it too, had plenty of space to play on the sun porch, room to run in the yard and bike on the quiet residential street.

It's a wonderful location if you want to avoid the crowds at Cape May Beach. Beach access was easy, it was never crowded, and the kids played in the tranquil bay waters while the parents could relax and read a book. It's also an easy trip to Cape May, Wildwood's beach and boardwalks, and other attractions. Town Bank has every convenience, the grocery store is close, there's a few bars and restaurants to give the chef a break, and the pancake restaurant is worth a visit, but get there early.

If you're looking for a relaxing vacation in a well-maintained beach house, I highly recommend this cottage. It is evident the owners take pride in it and take great care of it, a welcome development in a a beach rental. They also take great care of their guests, making our check in, check out and every minute in between as easy as could be. We had a terrific week and would go back again in a heartbeat!

Great Cottage by the Delaware Bay

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. The gardens were beautiful and the screen house in the back yard was a pleasant place to relax in the evenings. We especially enjoyed the large sunroom in the back of the cottage. The cottage is only 1 mile from the Cape May - Lewes Ferry. We would definitely like to come back next year.

Absolutely charming and lovely throughout!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My three friends and I had a fabulous time at this jewel of a vacation getaway! Every corner of the house and garden was carefully and thoughtfully planned and decorated to use the space in the best way. The cottage is full of great light, welcoming fun color, and cozy seating groups abound. The garden is absolutely so relaxing and soothing to spend time in...and tho we are all over 40, we ALL had a turn in the awesome swing! This place is so enjoyable you really could spend all your time there, but the beach is only steps away, and is stunning. We walked barefoot the short distance and were thrilled with the whole experience. I honestly do not understand how other renters could have had a problem, the owner was super friendly and helpful and we could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you for sharing this jewel with us, we will definitely be back...and now I want to bring my family to experience this pplace. Absolutely a terrific spot.

A magical cottage

  • 5 out of 5
My elderly parents and I spent three nights at this lovely home steps away from the bay and a 10 minute drive to the heart of Cape May. This home is full of light and love and colors. It is so comfortable, both inside and out, with various places to sit and read or talk or feel at peace. We loved the outdoor shower and the screened in living area where we enjoyed breakfast each day. Unlike Cape May proper, this is an oasis of quiet surrounded by beautifully tended gardens. And, if you are an inside person, there are two living rooms filled with light. The kitchen has everything you would need while on vacation and the bedrooms are small but comfortable. This is a really happy place.

Beautiful, quiet retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Our family spent a week in the Garden Cottage this summer (two adults, one toddler) and just loved it. The first thing that struck me about the place when I walked through the front door was how much care is put into its uptake and the beautiful natural light. It really did match the photos, and all the amenities were as described. The owner was extremely helpful in the booking process and very personable.

The cottage is off the beaten path--maybe a 10-15 minute drive from Cape May proper--and a two minute walk from the bay. A lot of the closer restaurants were a little more affordable but still tasty--in particular, we enjoyed 5 West Pub. Many activities--the zoo, the aviation museum, vineyards--were also easy to get to.

Couple things I'd recommend if you have young children: The house has skylights, so you should choose which bedroom the kid goes in carefully or you're in for an early wake-up call. Also, the owner has many beautiful things in the house--take a quick scan as soon as you get there and find some safe spots for the breakables during your visit.

It's a great place to unwind and unplug (although, I will say, the wireless access was excellent) for young families and I could definitely see getting together with a few girlfriends for the weekend there. Thanks so much!

A Wonderful Cottage for Summer Vacations

  • 5 out of 5
I can't say enough great stuff about this little house. It's surrounded by a lush and beautiful garden area, while the interior of the home is very modern with all the amenities. The central air is very welcome during hot summer days, and the patio area is just beautiful.
