About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 10-16, perfect for 2 families

The Ashley II: 116 Reading Ave. Wake up each morning refreshed from the sea air. Take an e-z stroll to the beach to warm your toes in the sand. Eat breakfast on the sun porch and snooze in the rocker. Spend the afternoon in the large sunny living room relaxing or playing games. Grill some local fish or steaks and enjoy dining in or visit many of the local restaurants. And guess what, turn in for the night in your cozy bedroom and enjoy 6 more days just like the first! This house provides a larger entertainment area on the first floor and the privacy of a separate 2nd floor for an extended family. Please note that this is a large house and the pictures are deceiving, we purchased the house spring of '05 and completed quite an overhaul in 2016. We continue our renovations through 2017 in the off season for the improved comfort and enjoyment of our tenants. We added new doors on first floor and windows in 2013!

This is the a great vacation beach house for those looking to be close to the water. This property is 1 block from the beach (there is only one house on the first block) see a peek of the ocean from the second floor deck. You can rent one or both units depending on the size of your family. The first floor sleeps 8 and second floor 6. We have additional air mattresses for a total of 16. The rates are better for both units together. There is a 3 season sun porch that runs the width of the house. The house is very sunny with hardwood floors, there is a very expansive floor plan with 25' living room (two queen sofas and entertainment center and is open to dining room, The first floor has one bedroom w/queen, another a king (or 2 twins) and the last 2 twins and also 2 full baths (one new 7/05 and updated in 2013); the second floor has a 2nd party kitchen, large open entertaining area, 2nd floor deck with peak of the ocean, 2 large bedrooms (one bedroom w/queen, another a king (or 2 twins) and 2 new full baths (5/06). There is a nice level yard with off street parking for at least 3 cars, we just added cac on the first floor 1/06, 2nd floor has nice ac units (one in each room).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this property! I have been vacationing in Cape May since my childhood (30 plus years). This is the first year that we rented a home and could not have been happier. The location is outstanding! A short walk to the beach and also access to a trolley stop which we used frequently. We barely drove during our entire stay. The home is exceptionally clean, bright and spacious, has a full kitchen and wonderful front porch. With 5 children having access to a washer/dryer was a huge bonus. The owner is fabulous to work with and we have already booked our vacation for next year. We can't wait to come back!

Walk a block to the beach from this sweet 2 bedroom 2 bath rental unit

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I wanted a place from which we could walk to the beach, shopping and dining. This lovely unit worked perfectly for us! We enjoyed the ocean breezes from the deck - ate dinner on the deck in the evenings. The beds/baths are very comfortable and we would definitely rent again!

Wonderful and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this house! It really is just a block from the beach and so convenient but also private enough to feel comfortable. The furnishings are great and even included beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards. There was also lots of outside seating available for meals outside which worked great for our family. Sally was also very helpful with arrangements, payments, and information that we needed along the way.

Clean, Comfortable, and Close! What a Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations in all categories! It was exceptionally clean which was very important for us. It was totally comfortable which made our evenings so relaxing. The proximity to the beach and to the Washington Street Mall was excellent! We didn't have to pack beach chairs or umbrellas because there were many of each at the property and we did use them at the beach. That gave us a lot more room for souvenirs! Shopping was wonderful because of all the quaint, unique shops. Basically, we hit the jackpot in staying at this property! We were able to rent bicycles and trek to the top of a nearby lighthouse for an exceptional view of the area surrounding Cape May. Also, we enjoyed a round of golf at Cape May National which was in great shape. Conversations with the owner were very helpful and free of tension. Our security deposit was mailed back to us in a very timely fashion. When we plan another vacation to Cape May, we hope this wonderful home is available to us again!

I Had a Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented the 2nd floor of this property for a number of years now and always have a great vacation. The property is always in good condition and very clean.

Upstaris, there are 2 adult-size bedrooms with storage and a closet for your stuff (pretty unusual at the beach, right?) The unit has a comfortable size living area and a nice size deck with a great view of the area during the day -and the stars at night. The kitchen is small, but stocked with the necessary appliances you need to cook-up a quick dinner. I've rented this property for a number of years and will continue to be a return-renter and because I really like the unit its proximity to the beach. The owner is a conscientious and reliable. VERY close to ocean!

Also, I have looked into expanding into the downstairs unit as well and can confirm this unit is very nice as well. The living area and kitchen are huge, and the patio is screened in...

The outside shower, grill and internet service are very nice amenities for both units.

Owner's Response: Wonderful to have the same tenant for 8 years! Unit is just one block to the beach and has a wonderful deck with peek of ocean. This unit can be rented by itself or with the downstairs for larger families. The living, dining and kitchen are open to each other and have a vaulted ceiling making it feel spacious.
