I stayed at Talia & Andrew's lovely apartment for 6 weeks in the late spring & early summer 2014. Talia was very accommodating. She knew I was arriving quite late after a long day of travel so she even had some fruit, eggs, milk etc in the fridge for me! The kitchen is beautiful and completely outfitted with everything you need to prepare full meals. All the staples & spices, too. Everything was absolutely clean & the bathroom had shampoo & soap etc. Talia & Andrew were completely available for anything I needed and to give advice about the area, but also totally respected my privacy. The place is very nice, exactly as the pictures show. The living room, kitchen & balcony overlook the water.
A couple things to note: The apartment is on the 3rd floor - it was perfect for me, but my 70 year old mom with replaced knees & hips would have had trouble with the stairs. Parking is a bit of an issue. Talia arranged parking for me at a nearby hotel ~2 blocks away which I used on busy weekends & once summer arrived. Being a little bit lazy, when it was quiet, I parked in metered parking very close to the apartment which is free from 6pm to 10am & there is a free visitor parking lot a block away as long as you move in there in the morning before it fills up (~7am once it gets busy in the summer).
I was in the area for school so I didn't do much "touristy" stuff but there are lots of nice little shops on the neck & the locals are incredibly friendly.
Talia & Andrew went above & beyond to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. They exceeded my expectations! The apartment has a beautiful view, is right down in the center of Rockport & has everything you need. I would absolutely recommend this rental to any of my friends. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
