Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Small Cape May cottage rentals that overlook the popular 19th century Victorians that Cape May is known for. Located 715 Columbia Ave, Cape May, NJ, a wonderful sea town escape. This sweet retreat is a perfect vacation rental suitable for 2-4 and is a bright, immaculate and charming vacation rental. The cottage has 3 walls of light (including stained glass). We have fully renovated inside and outside, but retained the charm. There are modern amenities such as CAC, TV with cable and DVD, wireless Internet, updated bathroom and 3-year-old white kitchen. We are a 3-4 minute walk from the beach, restaurants, shops and attractions. Perfect for single or family vacations. Children welcome. Outside there are enclosed hot/cold shower, grills, picnic and relaxing areas and bike rack.

Inlet Cottage is ideal

  • 5 of 5
It would be very hard to find a rental for 2 that is any better than this one. Just a few block from the beach, a few blocks from the center of Cape May, what could you ask for? The cottage is secluded from the street, has a full kitchen, washer & dryer, pullout couch for guests, second story deck, and much more. We've stayed at the Ashley Rose each of the past 3 years and will go back again next year. My wife and I just love this place! The main house is for larger families, but the cottage is ideal for us 66-year-olds and our bikes.

Great Location - Great Price!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I have been visiting Cape May for years and have stayed in both hotels and rental properties. We booked the Ashley Cottage based on the reviews we found online for both the property and it's owner Sally. All reviews lived up to our expectations!

The cottage was perfect for my husband & I. I think it would also be great for a family with young children - the cottage sleeps 4. There is a queen sized bed and a twin trundle all in the one bedroom.

The cottage is in a great location - just blocks from the beach and from Washington Street Mall. Our preferred method of transportation in Cape May is our feet - whether walking or biking - and this location was perfect for that!

The cottage itself was immaculate - definitely one of the cleanest beach houses I have rented. When we arrived the owner Sally and her cleaning crew were onsite putting the finishing touches on our cottage as well as the other properties. We bumped into Sally a couple times during our week-long stay and she was always smiling and asking if we had anything & everything we might need.

I would definitely stay there again and cannot recommend it highly enough!

Wonderful vacation cottage in Cape May

  • 5 of 5
Was looking for a cost effective and short stay at a quaint location in Cape May just after the season ended. Found the Ashley Rose B&B and they had little personal cottages behind the main house that I thought would be perfect. The description and photos were exact and the proprietor, Sally was very friendly and thorough in her communication.

She sent a lovely welcome letter to prepare us with all we needed and what we would need for arrival and departure. We frankly didnt see anyone the entire time we were there and it was so peaceful. The property was very clean, cool, and even looked renovated in some areas (new shower and bathroom and kitchen was so clean). We made pancakes for breakfast and brought other food with us which was so convenient and a money saver.

The cottage is located two easy walking blocks from the beach, shops, bike rentals and so much more!! Sally provides ample beach chairs, there is an outdoor shower if you are sandy from the beach and there are at least three grills available if you want to enjoy dinner outside. You dont need your car unless you want to drive out of town or see the other side of the island, and parking is free on the residential street just outside the front door.

On our last night the area power went out and we werent sure what to do, but after getting in touch with Sally she directed us to flashlights and neighbors if needed. The power was restored in about two hours, but we werent worried and felt safe and comfortable.

We were sad to leave and hope to return next season and maybe invite other family or friends to join as they have a larger cottage just next to the one where we stayed.

Cape May charm

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my stay at the charming Ashley Cottage which is clean and comfortable. There is a sunny eat-in kitchen and well maintained accommodations. Outdoor grilling area, two enclosed showers outside, and a lovely garden make it a peaceful and beautiful environment. The location is excellent, near shops and town, and a short walk on a lovely street past historic buildings to the beach.

Charming Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful location! And so accessible to anything you might want! Back a red stone path beside the main house, this cottage is attached to the house and has a rear entrance facing the back of the property. A patio set for outoor dining, the outdoor showers and a bike rack are right outside. Sometimes the front porch is available for a rocking chair session. (Check with the owner to see if it's reserved for a family) While you can't see the beach or feel the sea breeze from this cottage, on a quiet night you can hear the waves.
You just can't beat this property's location. Once you park your car (free on street) it is a convenient walk to the beach or downtown. Shopping, tours, restaurants, night life, grocery store.... it's all a short stroll away.
This is a tiny cottage. I like to spread out my stuff, so while this cottage sleeps 4, I would probably find a foursome in this space a bit crowded, especially with all our belongings. The beds are a queen and a daybed with a pull out from under mattress. (There is a folding room divider that can separate the beds) The daybed is the main seating area for watching TV. The owner was a terrific hostess and loaned me an item that I had forgotten. The facilities were nicely decorated and the kitchen adequately stocked. I love to cook and when I requested some special kitchen equipment/supplies, the owner cheerfully provided them. I'll come back for the convenience!

Owner's Response: Wonderful tenant was fun to have visit us. The cottage she stayed in is separated from other living space by a hallway and staircase. It has 3 outside walls. It has many sitting areas outside around the side and back of the property. We have a bamboo border that blows in the breeze and makes the back deck area very pleasant. Many of our families rent this small unit because they need sleeping for 4, but spend most of their time on the beach and about town. There is a fully equipped kitchen with table for 4. There are also 2 other units here at 715 Columbia that have at least 30% more space than this unit.
