Sunlight streams through the whitewashed walls. Dark chestnut hardwood floors throughout the cottage add a stylish touch. The beach cottage is just steps to the beach and bay. Relax on the back deck after a long beach day and enjoy a backyard barbecue with new gas grill, backyard table and chairs. This four-bedroom, two-bath, one story home comfortably sleeps 6 to 8 people. There are two bathrooms, one indoor and one exterior off the deck. There are 4 bedrooms total: two queens, one double and one bedroom with bunk beds. The bright, airy front sun room has new furnishings and provides a quiet space for reading or hanging out. The fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances adjoins the dining area . The cottage has new flat screen TVs. Home contains a washer/dryer for our guests' use. Secured wireless internet and digital cable TV are also perks of this modern cottage. The property has central air conditioning to keep you cool during your relaxing vacation in Sea Isle City.

Why Kathleen Ferry chose Sea Isle City

This cottage property caught our eye back in the winter, when it hit the market. We spent may days with friends and family in Sea Isle and always liked the vintage one-story homes the best. A few summers ago, we rented a place that was vintage on the outside and completely, wonderfully modern on the inside. That rental was the inspiration for this purchase. In the past, we had always stayed closer to town with our families, but that weekend, we stayed in Townsend's Inlet and fell in love with the quieter part of town.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this property because you can see the entrance to the beach from the front steps and if you look the other way, you can see the glistening water of the Bay. Doc McGrogan's Oyster Bar & Restaurant is now open and a 2 minute walk away. Sea Isle's Jitney bus service is reliable and gets you into the heart of town quickly for dinner and entertainment.

Modern Renovated Cottage by the Ocean and Bay

Sweet modernized cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a newly renovated, very clean old-style cottage on a quiet street. It has central-air, an updated kitchen and while all the bedrooms are small they are very functional and the living areas offer plenty of space for relaxing and socializing. The wifi which was a must for me worked just great and we appreciated having beach chairs to take to the beach. Loved that we could see the sunset from the front steps or walk the 1 1/2 block down to the pier on the bay. The owners were very responsive to my many questions/emails ahead of time. I definitely hope to rent the cottage again next year.

Welcome to Sea Isle City, a wonderful place to call “home” or “home away from home.”

As you enter town from the west via the Sea Isle Bridge, you’ll notice our inviting “Beach to Bay” corridor along JFK Boulevard, which was fully renovated in 2013. A stroll through this modernized area will take you past seven historical markers that will give you a glimpse into Sea Isle’s noteworthy past. After enjoying all that our entrance corridor has to offer (including Veterans Park, a state-of-the-art playground, basketball courts, a bayfront boardwalk and some beautiful scenery), take a moment to visit the Sea Isle City Welcome Center, located on JFK next to the bridge. Our Welcome Center staff can offer you event information, literature, dining and shopping suggestions, and all the details you need to make the most of your visit.

While you are here, you will also want to stroll along our oceanfront Promenade, which runs from 29th to 57th Street. The Promenade has shops, eateries, arcades and many places to sit and enjoy the roar of the ocean. Later, take yourself to the south end of town, where you’ll find the Townsend Inlet Waterfront Park, located at 94th Street. After walking past the pavilion and over the dune paths of T.I. Park, spend some time at the inlet, where you’ll see pleasure boats, anglers catching dinner, families playing on the sand and sunsets that will take your breath away.

In Sea Isle City, we pride ourselves on making our guests feel right at home. From the Welcome Center to our cordial business community, you’ll meet friendly people who can offer advice on “where to go” and “what to do.” Whether this is your first time in town or you have been summering here your entire life, I promise we’ll do all we can to make sure that you will miss us when your visit comes to an end. Perhaps that’s why each year more and more people choose to make Sea Isle City their year-round home. Who knows…maybe you’ll be next!

Smile…You’re in Sea Isle!
