About Rosie Gilroy

Neighbors in Pennsylvania introduced us to Cape May 20 years ago and we are forever indebted to them! We have spent many wonderful vacations and summers first in rental homes and then in a home of our own and in the process have created incredible memories.

Having spent those years renting, we know just what tenants are looking for and do our very best to offer it: prompt, friendly and helpful communications; an immaculate, comfortable and well decorated home; a generously stocked kitchen; comfortable sleeping arrangements; quick and reliable property management; up-to-date technology, including wide screen TVs and dependable internet; and a well maintained property, including new appliances and beautiful landscaping. We understand that our tenants are creating their own special memories and make it our business to enhance their experience in any way we can.

Thank you for considering our home for your vacation!

What makes this townhome unique

As a new home centrally located in the heart of Victorian Cape May, this property offers the best of everything. While staying here, tenants are immersed in the ambiance and charm of old Cape May but within the comfort of a home offering the convenience and living style of the 21st century. And did we mention the wonderful front porch?!

Guestbook comments from the owner

First, let me say what an absolute beautiful home you have. I have rented beach homes for many many years and I MUST say that your house was the absolute cleanest and most well appointed home I have ever had the pleasure of renting. The house was SPOTLESS, the kitchen had everything that we could have needed, the bedrooms and bathrooms were well decorated and laid out. It really was just perfect. I think we might have loved your dining room table the most :) We sat around it for many many (many) hours snacking and catching up with one another. The elevator was such a wonderful convenience on move in/move out days that I wonder how we could have done without it. Although perhaps the weather could have

cooperated a bit more (I was dreaming of sitting on the rockers on the

front porch) we could not have had a better time.

Thank-you again for allowing us the privilege of using your home.

Cozy Christmas in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

The Corner Beach House was a perfect accommodation for our family Christmas holiday of 8 people. It was tastefully decorated, complete with tree for our presents, warm and comfortable, and overall a lot of fun! We cooked meals in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen, worked puzzles and played board games, all with a cozy fire in the fireplace as background. Great house for coffee on the front porch, walk to beach, walk to restaurants and shopping, even cruising the town on bicycles on the milder days. Cape May is a charming town for the winter holidays. (Imagine the home would be perfect as a summer vacation too). Highly recommend and would definitely visit again if we are in the area.

Great Thanksgiving Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

The house was a wonderful setting for our family Thanksgiving. The space was perfect us (4 couples, 2 small children, and an infant). The entire place was well kept and clean though not so fancy that we couldn't relax and enjoy ourselves. The living area with an open floor plan on the second floor was spacious, comfortable, well furnished, and homey. The kitchen was very well equipped for 3 days of extravagant cooking and entertaining. The third floor bedrooms were roomy, quiet, and a really good fit well for our 2 families with kids and the grandparents. The fourth floor suite was a welcome retreat for the one couple without kids. Though definitely a luxury, the elevator was great for moving in and out. It saved us a lot of time and energy for a really fabulous family reunion. Checking in and out was seamless and completely hassle free. We hope to come again.

Great location - gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the "Corner house" for my father's surprise 75th birthday this December and couldn't have been happier with the property. The house is centrally located, has new and clean bathrooms and kitchen and the layout really worked for our large party. Since we were there in winter we weren't able to take advantage of the deck or the proximity to the beach but can only imagine that staying there in the summer would make for a fantastic vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Anna! Most tenants enjoy the newness of the house and I'm very glad that you and your family did as well. Thanks for taking good care of my home and please come back again! ~ROSIE

The Corner Beach House is home away from home. The house is spacious with a relaxing, laid back ambiance that was very clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped to cook a great meal which in fact we did just that. Rosie was very attentive to our needs which were minimal. The location is perfect for walking to and from town or the beach. Having the beach bikes right there was awesome. Having the elevator to get belongings in and out was perfect. One thing for sure is you can not go wrong renting the Corner Beach House! I know we will be back.

Annual Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

5 of us recently stayed at the Corner Cottage for our annual getaway. The house is spectacular. We've been going away together for the past 15 years and this is the 1st house that was spotless. Rosie was very detailed and the move in book was extremely helpful. The house was beautiful and the elevator made it so easy to get our luggage and purchases from shopping up and down. Having morning coffee on the porch was very relaxing. There was plenty of room to relax and enjoy each others company. The pictures do not do it justice. We only wished we could have stayed longer. This will definitely be our Cape May House from now on. Thank you Rosie for letting us share your beautiful home. Diane
