GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in this beautiful house. The house has a great flow with plenty of space to congregate or to retreat and have some privacy. The views are amazing! The house is well equipped. The kitchen/family room is very spacious.
Susan was very accommodating and easy to deal with.
Can highly recommend.

GREAT HOUSE, WONDERFUL LOCATIION

  • 5 of 5
The house is designed to provide plenty of space for our group of eight..we could all pitch in when we wantee to eat in to help in the kitchen....it also had enough spaces throughout for one to be alone to read or just relax....the views are awsome from the house or with a short walk, to sit on the rocks watching the ocean or trying ones luck fishing for blues or stripers...It nearness to Rockport offer a variety of shopping or eating ot opportunities...The owner took her time in a welcome tour of the house..I would highly recommend a stay at this wonderful house.

AWSOME@

  • 5 of 5
The house is just as beautiful in person as it appears in the pictures. The owner, Susan, was very welcoming and accommodating. The home is very clean and very comfortable which is always a priority for me when traveling. We prepared dinner at the home one night and the kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials. The home has beautiful views of the ocean from almost every room. It was a luxury to wake up in the master bedroom each morning with such a gorgeous view of the ocean. The home is just minutes from the beautiful little town of Rockport and it is also conveniently located near supermarkets and restaurants. We went to Salem, about a half hour drive, which is the coolest place to be in October. Thank you, Susan, for allowing us the most pleasant experience of staying in your beautiful home. The best recommendation I can give is that we would most definitely stay here again.

SERENITY MULTIPLIED!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned last night and I wish we were still there. Four nights with cousins that have never traveled together before and there truly was magic! What an absolutely wonderful house to share! My husband and I have used VRBO several times and again were not disappointed! Susan is charming, warm and welcoming. Her house becomes your house immediately. The house is very well stocked with everything you need to cook, dine and relax. Lots of kitchen utensils, dishes, pans, etc. Far exceeding any experience we have had before. It was a pleasure to stay in, cook, laugh and enjoy each other. There are more spaces to curl up than you can count! Susan had a fire laid in all three fireplaces for us. We used the one in the kitchen after coming in from a cold rainy sightseeing day! Boy was it welcoming. Morning coffee on the outside balcony, evening games in the upstairs sitting area, awesome meals in the big dining room, cozy breakfast in the big kitchen..... the fun is endless here! If your guests need space, it is here. If you all hang together, there are lots of great places to do it in this house. The views are amazing! The amenities are delightful! All the beautiful things Susan has collected are great to look at. There are so many interesting and lovely details to this house. Everyone of us wants to come back. Susan is just great. And we are all so grateful that she is willing to share her beautiful home with complete strangers. That is a special person. And she owns a special place.

MAGICAL, PERFECTION, RELAXATION,

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home is amazing. It was the perfect perfect perfect place to stay in Rockport. It truly was a magical vacation in a magical home. Now for me to describe this place wouldn't do it justice. Must be seen. But I'll try.

First, you'll drive down a private road and all you see is a picturesque view of the ocean. And then you realize that you'll get these views for the whole stay, so you actually see the house. And wow, you're blown away. Pictures were great, but WOW!

We were given a tour of the house by Susan. You should pay attention, as the stories behind the things in the house are worth an admission fee. There are things in the house from all over the world. The front door was a masterpiece. The wide-open kitchen made us seem like we were cooking in a mediterranean villa. The dining room table seated 8 of us comfortably and we used it pretty much every night (who needs a restaurant when you have the views we got during dinner - seeing the many colors of the sky during sunset, candles everywhere, sea shells on the table, music). Music was played throughout the house through surround sound, which is controlled in the great room - which by the way has ceilings about 30 feet high. The bedrooms were very nice with an adjoining private bathroom. The library also had it's own pull-out bed that was very comfortable - but the one downside is that's its on the main floor with only curtains. The upstairs lounge was great to play games, to have tea/coffee/desserts, to sit and chat on the balcony. Although there was no air-conditioning in the house, it wasn't needed. The house gets plenty of air circulation through the numerous windows.

The true gem was the master bedroom. Laying in bed, you have views of the ocean, the moon rising, and of course the sun rising. And if you want to sleep in, there are shades that provide total darkness in the room. Then you enter the en-suite. What more can you ask for, with a steam shower and a whirl-pool tub. The steam shower was used by all in the house, and was well worth it for everyone. Finally, a private balcony. Enough said.

Location. Bearskin Neck is only walking distance away, and can be even more amazing but cutting along the walking paths by Old Garden. Pebble Beach is about a mile away (taking a bike ride to it is gorgeous). Long Beach & Good Harbor Beach are very close and easy for someone to drop a group of people off.

Susan, thanks for the experience. Would love to stay again next summer!!!

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!! INDEED A MAGICAL HOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5
I traveled to this magical house with 5 of my very close friends to get away, rest and share in a special celebration. By the time we left, we were more than transformed, we were completely happy and felt wonderful.
Susan, the owner and designer of this very special property, could not have been more caring and generous. This house and its ocean front setting are initially breathtaking and yet every little detail of her masterpiece slowly unfolds as one spends time breathing in the fresh air and luxurating in the beauty of her creation. It didn't matter that the weather was stormy at times. Infact, it was enjoyable to relax and read, nap or just watch the magnificence of the ocean from the many special seating areas in this fabulous home. We cooked some great meals in the fully stocked, beautiful large kitchen and dined by candle light with cozy fires lit in the kitchen and dining area fireplaces. We haven't laughed so hard or felt so at ease in ages!! It was exactly what we needed to return home feeling renewed and ready to face the challenges of our lives. I can't stress enough how lovely this home, its setting and its owner fit our needs exactly right. I would highly recommend this treasure to anyone seeking a lift and wonderful time!! We are already talking about our return!!
