WHALE COVE GARDENS: IMMACULATE HOME WITH PRIVATE NEIGHBORHOOD WATER ACCESS!

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

This immaculate and gracious 3 bedroom/ 3 bath home is located on a quiet street in Rockport's desirable South End, and a one mile scenic stroll along back roads takes you to Old Garden Beach and Rockport Village. Surrounded by lush gardens and waterviews!

This immaculate and gracious 3 bedroom/ 3 bath home is located on a quiet street in Rockport's desirable South End. A one mile scenic stroll along back roads takes you to Old Garden Beach and Rockport Village in one direction or Cape Hedge Beach in the other direction. Surrounded by lush, professionally designed and award-winning perennial gardens, the house is a tranquil and lovely retreat in which you can choose to just relax, or go forth and experience a myriad of close-by activities. With deeded rights to a neighborhood waterfront area just 100 yards from the house, you can bring your kayaks down, or swim at high tide (bring your water shoes as the "beach" is rocky), or simply sit and enjoy the amazing views of Rockport's outer harbor and Sandy Bay. The heart of the home is the large, open and airy, granite kitchen with a huge eat-at island and attached dining area. The cathedral ceilings and custom windows allow for plenty of light, making this a very cheery spot to gather, cook and eat. There is a small deck off of the dining area with a gas grill,--the perfect place for breakfast al fresco. The living room with a flat screen TV and comfy leather seating is adjacent to the "front" door which leads to a shady farmer's porch - where you may sit and catch up on that book, or just enjoy the garden views. Off of the living room is a full bath with an antique marble sink and tub and shower, which can also be accessed from the twin bedroom which overlooks the gardens. Off of the dining area is a queen bedroom (which is carpeted) also with an ensuite full bath. The second floor of the house is the spacious master suite with beautiful hardwood floors, waterviews from every window, a king sized bed, full bath (shower only) with custom tile & marble, and a large living area with a pullout sofa. Off of the master living area is a two level deck with beautiful views of the neighborhood and sparkling waters of Sandy Bay. Come and relax in your Rockport home away from home!

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed

Reviewer Comments:
A great location for a quiet few weeks by the Ocean. Rockport is a short distance away as are other great beaches. The property is a little tired in places and has a slightly quirky configuration but it was clean and well maintained. I'd definitely recommend this property.

Manager responded on 6/19/2014:
The AVH family is glad you enjoyed your time relaxing in Rockport! As for the quirkiness of the home, we like to think that's a big part of its charm! We thank you for recommending Whale Cove Gardens, and we hope to see you again next summer!

An ocean view from the upper deck! The neighborhood and property are picturesque. The unique layout of the home allows for all guests to have privacy. We stayed during peak fall foliage and enjoyed the large kitchen for cooking seasonal recipes.

This property is conveniently located for a short walk to town. Second floor views are exceptional. Susan Ray at AVH was most helpful . Small issue with the temperature setting on the T-stat which Susan took care of immediately. Great neighborhood, very private and peaceful back yard.

Reviewer Comments:
Everything was good, however this home has such an overpowering musty smell. We bought candles, would open many windows when we would leave for the day but nothing helped it. When you are in the house you get use to the smell. Leave for even an hour and its tough to take.

Manager responded on 10/10/2013:
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your feedback; the dehumidifier has been checked and the problem has been taken care of.

The location and view are wonderful. Layout a little eccentric, but worked just fine for us. Enjoyed eating in the garden. Windows in kitchen area need attention.

Reviewer Comments:
This property was both quiet and serene! The floor plan was very accommodating for our family. The house was furnished well with lots of space to spread out and relax. We had two small issues and AVH handled them well. It was a distance from a sandy beach so we had to drive and pay to park. We went to Long Beach everyday and enjoyed the weekday, low crowd experience. Our week was 90+ degrees so air conditioning would have been helpful, but we did get an evening breeze, Would highly recommend this house and we will use AVH again for our 2014 vacation plans!

Manager responded on 8/6/2013:
Thank you for the kind suggestions, we will pass them onto the owner. We are delighted that you found Whale Cove Gardens to be a prime vacation house, and that you enjoyed some of Cape Ann's attractions as well. We can't wait to work with you again next summer!
