SPINDRIFT: DIRECT WATERFRONT, CENTRAL AIR, AND 0.8 MILES TO THE BEACH!

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

Direct waterfront, Rockport South End & central air! A spindrift is windblown seaspray which is a regular sighting at this lovely home that is as close to the Atlantic as the ocean will allow...

A "spindrift" is windblown seaspray which is a regular sighting at this lovely home that is as close to the Atlantic as the ocean will allow. Astoundingly beautiful views from almost every room greet the guest at Spindrift which is a comfortable and spacious four (plus) bedroom two (plus) bath home in Rockport's desirable South End. Sit in the "prow" room with two walls of glass sliders which open onto a deck and lovely yard with a panoramic 270 degree view of Straitsmouth Island ahead and Rockport's iconic "twinlights" to the right, and Gap Cove's splendor to the left. The prow room also boasts a large screen HDTV/VCR/DVD, stereo, and high speed wired/wifi internet access. The rest of the main floor consists of a dining area with a large round table and a woodburning stove; a modern kitchen with dishwasher, double ovens, microwave and custom wood counters; a fireplaced living room with plenty of seating to enjoy the perfect picture window view of twinlights.. There is a half bath off the hall, a large queen bedroom ensuite with a full bath and a newly added 50" plasma HDTV/DVD/stereo, leading to another bedroom with twin beds, a fireplace and a TV (rollaway available). Upstairs you will delight in a king master bedroom with a large flat panel LCD screen HDTV/DVR/DVD and a sweeping view and another bedroom with twins with wonderful views and a full bath with tub and shower. For teens or tweens, there is bonus sleeping space over the garage with twin beds, a toilet, sink, TV, microwave and mini fridge. The house's layout makes it great for two families vacationing together, one family can be downstairs, the other upstairs. Hardy swimmers can cool off in large, naturally protected, tide pool nestled in the property's sea rocks which remains as the tide goes out. This property boasts a state of the art composite Timbertech deck along with a full compliment of high end Teak deck furniture including a gorgeous Teak entension dining table with a stainless steel 9 foot umbrella. 8 reclining Teak and brass chairs, side tables. a deluxe 6 foot Teak bench and finally an adjustable Teak sun lounger! For your lounging pleasure there is a luxury massaging reclining chair and two remote controlled adjustable twin beds (raise your head for breakfast in bed or enjoying tv!), and 4 premium movie channels in the cable lineup! Old Garden Beach is 7/10 mile and Cape Hedge beach is approx 1.5 miles and both are a lovely walks. Drive to Good Harbor or Long Beaches in 5 minutes.

  • non smoking only

2007 season reviews: 1.' What can I say - Location, location, location! You can't get closer to the ocean than this! House was very well equipped - everything in place and very comfortable. Pinball machine was a fun diversion, along with the multitude of television sets. The real show was sitting in the Prow room watching the ocean and listening to the waves crash against the rocks. Quiet neighborhood and private space... it had every convenience necessary to make the stay fun and no-hassle. I'm sure the house could accommodate many people, but it's cozy enough for just couples. My only regret in writing this review is that other people may catch on to this great getaway.'

2. 'For the past six summers, we have rented lovely houses at old Garden Beach through AVH. Last summer was our first at Spindrift, and it was a perfect choice for my son, daughter, their families, and me (the mom/grandmother). The house was spacious but comfortable, the views spectacular, and Old Garden Beach walkable for six young children. The house and setting was wonderful to share with family and friends, and we plan to return again to Sprindrift for summer seven in Rockport in building wonderful family memories! We highly recommend!

Spindrift Exceeds Expectations For Family Gatherings!

The house is spacious with areas for privacy. We spent most of our time on the glorious deck which is literally a few feet from the water. Watch fishing/lobster boats, sunrise, water birds, and beautiful ocean. The King bedroom invites you to watch the stars, sunrises and hear the surf. Most rooms do. From the upstairs bath you can see the ocean from a window in the tub/shower! House is nicely equipped with linens, towels, kitchen amenities, beach chairs, deck furniture.
The owner was extremely gracious in addressing any concerns we had before our visit.

Our wish list includes: trim the tree on left in driveway to better accommodate two cars. Prefer traditional twin beds in downstairs bedroom. Fix wireless connection of computer in King room. Explain huge hot tub in yard. Describe access of "swim from the property". The bedroom above the garage needs revision, including creating pleasant access.
And Really? We'd do it all again.
Great Property. We're planning our return!

Reviewer Comments:
You could not ask for a better location then Spindrift. This house is on the water, private, and spacious enough to allow a houseful of people to still find a quiet spot to relax. Its also a great value other homes that offer this much space and beach front location are often double the price. The flip side of this coin is the condition of the property. The AC is not able to cool the entire house, we were there during a heat wave and the upstairs bedrooms were not comfortable. Additionally, the refrigerator was unable to keep up with heat and we had issues with maintaining perishables. Overall condition is rundown, towels and linens are worn, screens are ripped and sliding doors do not slide making outside access very difficult esp. for the kids. This property gets a A+ for location, and a C+ for condition but for overall value I think it was priced quite fairly for a B+.

Reviewer Comments:
Spindrift has been our family gathering place in Rockport for the past seven years, and we continue to be grateful for its location, views, and amenities. It's wonderful for entertaining, families with children, and picturesque views of the sunrise and sunset, majestic ocean and rocks, Twin Lighthouses on Thatcher Island, Straitsmouth Island, and walks to Gap Cove, Old Garden Beach, and even Bearskin Neck! This year we viewed the very full moon over the ocean, and a brilliant double rainbow arching the ocean and land after a late afternoon shower! Truly ship ahoy and enjoy!

Reviewer Comments:
Not close enough to beaches with 5 young children..both walking & driving.
One bedroom leading into another is not very convenient.
Rocks behind house are beautiful but can be nerve wracking for parents watching children climbing on them.

Reviewer Comments:
We all enjoyed the magnificent views from Spindrift. The house is spacious and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped. However,we didn't come to the beach to live behind bolted windows and doors that might open onto the ocean and its lovely breezes! We had to rely on the air-conditioning - a major drawback. The room over the garage was not as advertised but shabby and uncomfortable nor was there a pull-out bed in the prow room as stated in the description.
