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.

Cape May Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the Corner Cottage for our parent's 40th Anniversary celebration, and we had a fabulous stay! The layout and size of the Corner Cottage allowed each of my siblings (and respective family members) to have their own space, and my parents loved the top, master suite which was easy for my mother (with hip issues) to access via the in-house elevator. The dining table was perfect for family meals, and the living room was awesome for us all to relax after a day of activities around town.

Cape May was so enjoyable during the winter season. We caught the holiday house tour, the Christmas parade, and shopping in Washington Mall - all walking distance from the house!

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend, together as a family, and truly look forward to a return stay!

Beautiful home in a great location! Easy access to shopping, restaurants, and beach. Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! The elevator allowed my 93-year old mother to get from floor to floor with ease. She was thrilled! The house was clean and well organized. We used the bikes to ride the boardwalk along the beach as well as to explore other parts of town. The weather was cold so we enjoyed warming up by the fire, and the large dining table was perfect for playing games. We also appreciated having 2 coffee makers so there was plenty of coffee to start our days. Easy access to shopping, restaurants, and the beach gave us plenty to do to fill our days. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely rent this property again!

Great place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

My three siblings and our spouses just spent the last two nights at this lovely home. We loved it! The house itself is beautiful and very comfortable. It is also ideally located in Cape May, close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. And, the owners were a pleasure to deal with. We recommend it highly!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! I planned a girls weekend in celebration of a friends upcoming wedding and we had so much fun. The house was perfect for accommodating all 9 of us. Very roomy, very clean and in a great location. We spent the weekend going to wineries and hanging out in the town which is only a few blocks away. We all agreed that we would definitely choose to rent here again! We had a great time!
