Where to Stay in Townsends Inlet

Where to Stay in Townsends Inlet


Townsends Inlet, on the southern end of Sea Isle City, is a quiet residential neighborhood. Historically,  it hasn’t included a commercial district, with the exception of a small deli and country store. Until this season, travelers who wished to stay in Townsends Inlet only had one option: rentals. That meant renting a condo or home on a weekly, monthly or seasonal basis. For shorter vacations, visitors had no other choice but to stay further north in Sea Isle, or in another town altogether.

However, an exciting new construction project is changing all of that.


The Dunes opened in 2016. It was the first of the three-building construction project. Untitled-7In 2018, The Cape and The Cove were completed. All three buildings make up an upscale condominium complex offering 13 suites with either 3 or 4 bedrooms. All units have full kitchens, free Wi-Fi and linens and towels, however, daily maid service and extra linens (such as for the pull-out couch) are not available. Each unit receives 2 parking spaces located in the parking garage below the building. Guests can choose to add-on amenities such as beach chairs and umbrellas but beach tags are not available. These units are available for rent on a weekly basis (Sunday – Sunday) or for 3 or 4-night “mini-week” stays from Thursday-Sunday or Sunday – Thursday. The Cape and Cove promise to offer similar accommodations and amenities. Located in the Dunes building is Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House.


All of Avalon and Stone Harbor’s camping options are off-island along Route 9. Check websites for more information.

Home Rentals:

Most renters will go through traditional real estate agencies to rent condos and houses, however there is a growing number of options appearing online. Websites such as Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO), Home Away and even AirBNB are starting to show options for weekly and, at times, shorter stays via website.
