EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
The house exceeded expectations. The pictures do not do it justice.

This house is in an exclusive area in Gloucester as part of a private estate of about 17 homes. Wrap around deck looks out onto two different ocean views, a view of a beautiful pond, wild flowers, and a pier. High quality kitchen -- fully loaded -- huge living room, decent bedrooms. Big game room downstairs (also fully loaded) with ping pong table. Two above average bathrooms with very high quality showers. Tons of towels, kayaks, beach toys, and everything you need for the 2 minute WALK to your two private beaches. I do not believe the downstairs bedrooms (two of them) had air conditioning (the upstairs two did) but with windows open it was not a problem.

As one of the other reviewers noted, the pictures and description by the owner do not fully capture how special this house is.

HAPPY REPEAT RENTER

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing here for at least 8 years now. We started renting the house when our children were little. It has 2 private beaches (a short walk from the house), with calm waters and very few people, where small children can play for hours. As our children got older, they also enjoyed climbing the rocks along the water, swimming out to the dock, playing games in the yard, and exploring. The house works very well for entertaining, with a well-equipped kitchen/dining area, a bedroom/bathroom layout that gives everyone privacy/space, and plenty of room downstairs and outside for kids to play. The great room with kitchen/dining area and living room feels incredibly spacious, and the large glass doors provide a feeling of being outdoors while inside. Probably our favorite aspect of the house is the fact that it is situated on a larger estate. The beaches are never crowded, and there is ample space between houses ensuring peace and tranquility. Our family and friends have truly enjoyed every year at the house, and the owners couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating!

PERFECTLY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year at our family's favorite reunion home--a very special place that excels in all respects. We enthusiastically second all the other reviews. We have vacationed in the area several times and love the location; a truly authentic taste of the Cape Ann coast.
The hosts have created a welcoming, completely equipped, beautifully maintained environment; they are helpful and reachable when needed.
The view is spectacular, especially at sunset; the natural environment is unspoiled--an experience to remember and repeat.

SUCH A LOVELY WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week at this home in Gloucester! The house is really great- well designed and comfortable. You know how easy and intuitive an iPhone is? That's how this house is- everything is where you expect it to be and makes sense. The kitchen is well-equipped. The game room is really fun. Everything is laid out as you would want it to be!
With two small kids, it was terrific to have a private beach within a few minute walk from the house. The kids had such a great time on the beach, which is sandy with calm waters. There were really no negatives; we loved the house and will definitely return.

FABULOUS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay with family and friends. The house is perfect for entertaining--big, wide open light-filled rooms with high ceilings (most of which have great views of the ocean); beautiful accommodations with just about every amenity included; modern, well stocked kitchen with granite counters. There is a lovely deck which faces east for sunrises as well as northwest for sunsets over the ocean. It is a short walk to two private beaches with soft sand (one reviewer said that the beaches were small but this is not the case--they are actually both good size) and plenty of rocks for climbing and exploring. The setting is amazing as the house is part of a large private estate with commanding views of open ocean and acres to explore. The views from the house are terrific--when you look east you face a lovely harbor where a few boats are anchored; when you face west you can see all the way up the coast of Massachusetts and into New Hampshire. The entire area feels very private and safe. Our kids roamed to the beaches and up the hill to the swing set and tennis courts, and we were never worried about them. The only negative was that we weren't able to bring our dog. We asked the owners about this and they were very nice and understanding but stood firm as one of the family members has severe allergies.

Next year we might decide to come in July. That can be a hotter month but there was central AC throughout the upstairs, so the entire house is always very dry and comfortable. The owners were extremely accommodation and gave us many good suggestions about where to shop, eat, etc. Gloucester is a fascinating little city rich in history and full of interesting places to visit. This is one of the nicest houses we've ever stayed at and we are already planning to sign up for next year.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week, every body where happy. The place was very clean, very very well equip. The onwers where very nice and helpfull. They provide us with a lot of good tips and informations before we got there and during our stay. Nice view, near a little private beach, perfect for the kids, quiet, mix of rocks and sand. Close to the house, 2 nice public beach, we recommand goodharbor beach. Only 45 minutes from Boston. We recommand it to everybody. We had childrens from 2 years old to 15, our parents around 60. We can confirm that everybody had a great time from the youngest to the oldest.
