Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Cape May - The Sunset Bay Cottage
3 BR, 2 BA, sleeps 6
All 2014 summer weeks booked, taking reservations from Sep 27th and on.
The Sunset Bay Cottage is located in a quiet area of the Villas near the Delaware Bay and 8 miles north of historic Cape May. The large wrap around deck gives you plenty of space to relax and view the birds native to the area.Open up the sliders in the dining area and step off the deck to the Bar-B-Q grill.Do up some burgers and sit under the umbrella and watch the small planes fly by. Hear the seagulls, watch dragon flies, see boats sailing on the bay and listen to the waves. Enjoy our new hot tub year around. It has multicolored LED lighting and seats 6 people. If it's too hot outside just stroll over to the beautiful 18 foot above ground pool.In the evening, watch the sky turn red as the sun paints the horizon in many shades of red. Leash up your dog and take a stroll on the beach and get a panoramic view. Our beach is dog friendly all year long.Families & mature couples only.No proms.
See the most fantastic sunsets New Jersey has to offer, search for star constellations at night or eat your breakfast early morning watching the migrating shore birds on the deck.
Cook outside on the gas grill. Take a walk or jog in the quiet and restful neighborhood. Friendly people.
The quiet Delaware bay is good for fishing, shell collecting, kayaking, and sailing. It's also great for picnics and watching the glorious sunsets.
Or just rest in this very quiet area. Get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps. You will truly be on 'Vacation' in this home.
Our beach in Villas is the Delaware bay beach(not the ocean) , although swimming is bay water and not like the ocean. Unlike the beaches in Cape May that only allow dogs on the beach from Sept 15-Apr 15th, our beaches welcome dogs all year long.
The OCEAN at Cape May beaches is about 8 miles away. Need to buy beach tags. Enter by way of West Cape May to avoid late summer traffic.
The OCEAN beaches at Wildwood are 8.5 miles (17 minutes) away. A really fun boardwalk and water park is located in Wildwood.
There is also a good beach in Townbank (next small town below Villas) which is free. It is only about 2 miles away. Bay water but very clear, gentle waves,very warm. This beach is accessible on the main road that follows along the bay heading to the ferry.
Also, you can swim at a great beach at the ferry beach- in the state park at ferry point- free- and only a few miles away from our house. Again, very clear, shallow for a distance, great for
small kids, warm. It has a really large beach, great fishing, and the water is always warm. Has portapotties,and you can watch the boats and ferries going out into the bay. No crowds. New large shady gazebo. Free parking.
We look forward to sharing our beach home with you. Please include your name, and number of people and pets in your party with your inquiry.

Ron purchased this house in 2006
Why Ron chose Cape May
We decided to buy this house because it was one of the few houses in the area that is near the Delaware Bay. The sunsets directly into the water on the Bay. We wanted a house that we could walk to the bay and watch the sunset. From the deck we can listen to the birds and watch the sea gulls. Being at the end of the street makes this location quiet with no through traffic. This house had to meet our requirement of retiring in and living the rest of our life there.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you again for opening your home to families with dogs.
For us dog owners that do not wish to board our dogs, it is nice to find accommodations that will allow dogs (especially a house as nice as yours).
We will definitely plan another vacation next year.
