Rented the house for a long weekend with 7 old college friends. The house was just perfect for us. For the most part, each of us had our own bedroom. And the porches, kitchen, living/dining room were perfect for hanging out and just talking for hours. The view and setting are spectacular. The rocks in front of the house on the water's edge are large and flat and provide their own sort of private "beach". The neighborhood is great for walks, and the town of Rockport fun for shopping, exploring & eating out. The one thing I would say on the (perhaps, for some) negative side is that the house is comfortable but not fancy. The kitchen and bathrooms are somewhat outdated, and the furnishings are not new. If you want a house that is recently renovated/decorated top to bottom, go elsewhere. It is, however, extremely well-maintained and clean. The owners are very responsive and accommodating.
