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.

Beautiful home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This picture perfect home was ideal for our group of 10. Perfect distance to walk to the beach or walk to the shopping area, and close enough to all the fantastic restaurants near beach ave. The house has everything you need, but what we enjoyed most was the large front porch, where we sat in rocking chairs, relaxing and taking in the town. Would absolutely recommend!

Wonderful place and experience!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the beautiful Corner Beach House during Labor Day Week. The townhouse was beautiful, clean and had great amenities for me and my large family. We loved the large kitchen and open floor plan, as well as the front porch and the proximity to Washington Square and Congress Hall. It does have a lot of stairs, so you may want to bring a couple of baby gates if you have a crawler like I did, but that really wasn't much of an issue at all. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend this property as a vacation rental.

Fabulous home with 4 large bedrooms

  • 5 of 5

There are many reasons why this is such a popular rental on Columbia Ave. in Cape May. Let me begin by saying that it's very hard to find a place where all the rooms have queen sized beds not to mention a luxurious 4th floor master king suite. We did not need the extra trundle beds which can accommodate bigger families than our group of 8. The owners had the foresight to install an elevator which made moving our stuff between the ground floor and the upper floors a snap. We ate most of our meals in so it was a pleasure to prepare meals in the well-stocked kitchen. We loved having our breakfasts out on the 2nd floor front porch where we also had evening cocktails as we watched the horse drawn carriages pass by. There were 4 bikes for our use which are kept indoors and protected from bad weather. The beach box was also a blessing and full of chairs, sand toys, boogie boards etc. Everyone in my family agreed that this was the best rental we ever had over several years of vacations in Cape May. Many thanks to the owner Rosie for giving us such a great vacation experience.

The Ultimate Girls Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Girl’s weekend getaway! This was our second year booking this beautiful home for our annual girl’s weekend and I am anticipating we will book it again for next year. Cape May is the perfect location for a girl’s weekend or really any family or friends getaway. We checked in on Thursday and stayed until Sunday. The house is gorgeous and can comfortably accommodate our group of ten and even a few more. Parking is never a problem and the house is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We dined at Panico’s Italian Bistro one night (5 minute drive)and Freda’s Café (walking distance) both were delicious and BYOB. We visited Cape May Brewery and Hawk Haven Vineyards, both very nice. A surprise outing to Jersey Shore Alpacas was a lot of fun! We fed and mingled with 12 adorable Alpacas and took some really cute photos! Spent many hours sitting on the wrap around porch catching up while enjoying some snacks and Sangria. Friday and Saturday nights were spent dancing the night away at two clubs right across from the beach – Carneys and Cabanas. Great bands both nights, and walking back to the house or calling Uber made it so easy to enjoy the night without worrying about driving.

The owner is very easy to work with and responds quickly to inquiries. House is well equipped with anything you could need in the kitchen and plenty of seating at dining table and out on the porch. The home and property are clean and well maintained…. Just lovely!! Can’t say enough about this home in Cape May – it’s a gem! We will be back!
