About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

It doesn't get any better than this. Beautiful 'beach themed decor' vacation townhouse, immaculately kept, is ideally located on the beach block of 85th Street (south unit) ocean views, the quiet end of Sea Isle in Townsends Inlet. Park your car and forget about it! In a few steps you are at the protected beach, lifeguard house with bathrooms and playground. One block walk to an oyster bar, Sunset Pier, Hank's Sauce (Mexican) and more. There are great seafood and Italian restaurants minutes away.

The first floor has two bedrooms with full bath, a queen in one bedroom and two twins in the other. The main floor has a large, vaulted-ceiling living room with walkout deck. Enjoy your morning coffee as you view the incredible sunrises over the ocean. A dining room, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room and bedroom with a queen bed and bath are three steps above the living room.

The third floor master bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling, king size bed, sitting area, and a large bath with his and hers sinks. Watch those beautiful colors of pink, orange and red as the sunsets off the private deck.

There are ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living room. There is a TV in each bedroom with either a VCR or DVD player. In the living room you can experience a 50' HDTV with surround sound stereo, iPod dock, DVD player and Sony play station with games, movies and wireless internet. There is a large, private outside shower for your use upon returning from the beach in the fenced back yard.

This home is a great place to relax on one of the decks, enjoy your favorite beverage, read a book, web fanatics and Geeks bring your laptop and use the included Wifi. Sit on the beach with the provided beach chairs and umbrella, get that tan or take a swim. Go fishing, crabbing, parasailing, jet skiing, ocean kayaking, surfing--it's all nearby. Cook fresh seafood or a great steak from the close by markets on the large gas grill, or order out. Most restaurants prepare carry out for any occasion; some establishments offer fast delivery. Take that walk in the evening on the beach and enjoy the lights from the casinos in Atlantic City and the amusement piers in Ocean City, enjoy the moon as it glistens on the ocean and listen to wonderful 'music' the surf makes.

About Patrick Ellis

My parents first met as teenagers and next door neighbors spending their summers in 'Townsends Inlet'. My family has been coming to 'TI' for over 80 years. Even though I live in Maryland I have spent every summer of my life at the Jersey Shore in Sea Isle. My kids did the same and couldn't wait to go to the 'Shore'. Now my grandchildren come and visit in the summer all the way from the west coast.

Patrick Ellis purchased this townhome in 1991

Why Patrick Ellis chose Townsend's Inlet

Our town house was built in 1991 on a double lot after tearing down my grandfathers 75 year old gigantic three car garage with a three bedroom apartment above the garage. What a great improvement!

What makes this townhome unique

I enjoy the friendliness of the people, the beautiful ocean, bay, convenience and serenity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mike - thanks so much for letting us use your shore house. Even though it was quite warm this was a great week...we had a great time. The location was perfect because my sister and brother in law (Steve and Roseann Kiszely) live right on the beach at 85th. They seem to know of your family. Any way,,,, had a great time.

thanks again...we will keep in touch for next year possibly

Nice home, great location, well stocked

  • 4 of 5

Apparently my prior review did not load properly. This was a very nice house in an excellent location for a family, quiet neighborhood with a deli and one or two restaurants nearby but no crazy commercial crush. Literally around the corner from the beach, and the entrance on 85th street includes restrooms, a small playground for children, a covered seating area as well as "Bernie's" hot dog stand. Close to fishing at the inlet between Sea Isle and Avalon.

House is well appointed and comes with beach chairs, a gas grill, outdoor shower and other items listed in the ad. Plenty of cooking utensils, plates, spices , a large frig, washer and dryer, good AC and front and rear decks. Two bedrooms and a bath on level 1, living room, kitchen, dining area, one bedroom and bath and front deck on level 2 and a large bedroom with master bath and deck on level 3. Layout was comfortable and we didn't feel crowded. Parking for up to 3 cars, 1 in garage and two on pad. Nearby parking not a problem. We had one plumbing problem with the kitchen sink which the owner's plumber repaired promptly. Dealings with the owner were cordial and professional and consensus among all of us was it was a great visit and we hope to return.

We just came back from our week at the shore. The location of the house was fantastic. Proximity to the beach was fabulous. We had 2 children under 4 with us so the closeness of the small playground and beach restrooms were invaluable. The house itself was great. The multi leveled layout of the house worked well for us. Again with young kids having a bathroom on every level was a huge plus. TVs in every room were a big plus too. I loved the cookware and the kitchen. Ample sized refrigerator. Wonderful takeout places all around and ice cream right around the block. The street was very quiet which is exactly what we were looking for. My only suggestion is if you have young children bring your own baby gates for the stairs. I would highly recommend this rental. You can't beat it.

Great place, great location and a great time.

The house is comfortable, just like being at home.

The beach is great and there are so many amenities, such as a great deli a block away, two restaurant and package store one block away. Ice cream for the kids just another block away. If you want, you do not need to get back in the car.

This is a vacation we look forward to each year.

The owners are wonderful to work with and make certain you feel welcome and truly relax at their property.

This property receives my highest review - five stars all around. Michael was great to deal with and recommended the linen/towel service and cleaning service which were both top notch, and the property is outstanding. 8 of us stayed very comfortably in the house, hosted a birthday party for my Dad with additional friends and family, and had all the comforts of home with AC, great kitchen with everything you need, wireless internet, cable TV in each room as well as a nice home theater setup in the living room. A 2 minute walk from the front door to the beach. Great neighborhood, local corner store 2 blocks away and great shopping for groceries etc. about 10 minutes away. I like this place so much that I would live there year 'round if I could afford it! I don't know prices on the Jersey Shore (I live in Houston but grew up there in the '60's) but this was a fair price for the week we stayed there and I wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Bear in mind that I can drive to Galveston in about an hour and rent a very nice beach house for the same price without having to get on a 4 hour plane flight to Philly and drive 1 1/2 hours to Jersey - but Galveston ain't the Jersey Shore and my Dad wanted us all there where we grew up for his 80th birthday celebration on July 4th so we booked it. My entire family around the country will be talking about this vacation for years and they've posted every photo on their facebook pages. Thanks Michael - you were awesome and patient and I am normally way too busy to be sitting around writing reviews but I'm happy to do it when I experience something exceptional:)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, I know your entire family had to travel quite some distance and expense to get to our home. I hope you return as my guests in the near future and Dad spends his 81st birthday at the Jersey Shore.

We just got back from our stay at this very welcoming beach home in Sea Isle City. The owners are the most organized landlords and make everything very easy. I am a very clean person and I have to saymy husband I felt very comfortable staying in their home with my family of three boys. They had everything you needed and were about a 45 second walk to the beach from their house. Their decor wasn't my taste but everything else made up for it and honestly I didn't give it a second thought. I would highly recommend staying in their home for your family vacation. Sea Isle is Wonderful ! :)

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location -- less than a minute to the beach! So easy to walk back to the house for a new beach read or an afternoon nap for the little ones. A bathroom and snack stand are also located at the beach entrance. House is decorated nicely and multiple TVs keep all family members content. We enjoyed the views from the front deck and read the morning newspaper there. Busch's is a classy restaurant within walking distance. There's also a convenience store, Blitz's Market, nearby. Make sure to visit the ice cream stand right around the corner. Atlantic City is 30 minutes away. I would highly recommend this rental. We plan to return next year!
