UTTER BLISS IN A HAVEN OF PEACE AND QUIET!

  • 5 of 5
The home itself is way prettier than it appears on the web and well-maintained, well-equipped and comfortable - a true home-from-home. Actually almost too pleasant, we didn´t really want to leave at all.

The owner and her family made every effort to help us find our feet quickly in our new environs and our 9 short nights left us so refreshed we felt we´d been away for months.

Boston is easily reached by commuter train in around an hour from the small local station so there´s no need to drive in and fight to park and it´s an easy day out and a relief to return the the peace of the house and have a sundowner on the deck whilst enjoying watching the red and grey squirrels play in the trees.

We enjoyed the local seafood and grilling perfect lobsters on the deck by the light of the fireflies....almost a shame to leave and go to restaurants, although plenty are available locally. We even picked fresh herbs form the rock garden to use in cooking and drinks!

We have done nothing but talk about coming back since we got back home since the combination of comfortable house and quiet, shady surroundings (we get too much sun in Spain) proximity to the sea and pretty local area made for a perfect holiday. The locals are very welcoming and don´t appear to be suffering from tourist fatigue - or don´t show it - in stark contrast to many areas internationally.

Our only regret is that we couldn´t manage to stay longer didn´t arrange to take our two miniature dachshunds with us. Travelling all the way from Spain with them is complicated. The owners have two delightful basset hounds who kept us company for part of the stay and even welcomed us home one evening!

The downstairs bedroom and bath is handy for anyone who doesn´t want to tackle the wooden staircase every day. It´s worth remembering the washing machine and drier are upstairs as are the main bedroom and twin bedroom so you would have to go upstairs if you needed to wash clothes or use the other bedrooms.

This was our first trip to this area of the US and we will return soon, not only to the Gloucester area, but to this very spot.

Thanks again to the owner and all her family and friends for making our holiday the best in years.

AWESOME VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a special vacation for our family. We were spending it with our 4 month old grandson from England. The house was comfortable and big enough for all of us to have separate space even when he was crying. We loved sitting out on the porch watching everyone walk or drive by. Neighbors were incredibly friendly and helpful. The area is spectacularly beautiful. Every time, you go for a walk you get another view of the ocean.
The only thing that would have made the place more perfect would be rocking chairs on the porch:) especially with an infant. We will definitely return again. The owner was helpful, responsive and kind throughout the entire process of renting.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your excellent review. More than anything I love when my guests are blown away by the natural beauty of our hidden gem, known as Diamond Cove. I will definitely look for a rocking chair for the porch.

REALLY NICE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for a month. This is the longest vacation I have ever taken and the only one that was truly relaxing. Our children came and went throughout our stay. Everyone was relaxed and enjoyed themselves. The house is was less than 10 years old with modern conveniences and lots of room. I would definitely do this again. I highly recommend this house and the Cape Ann area.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Vacation 17th July for a week. The house was perfect with all the amenities you could think of. A lovely quiet neighborhood with easy access to beaches. Also very easy to drive to all interesting places and a train to Boston. The weather was very good with the ocean not being rough thus allowing for fishing and sailing. We had a perfect week and thanks to Carol for her kindness and the use of her house

Owner's Response: Dave,

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of my property.

I am always grateful when my guests appreciate not only the house, but the entire area and how special it is.

Cape Ann is still very much a secret paradise. I am delighted that you, Vera & Martin found it.

I hope to see you all back again very soon.

Sincerely,

Carol
