Our young families are in the area, so this is our home when we visit them. We chose Salem because of vibrant festivals and activities, the stunning historic environment and the excellent public transportation to Boston, Logan airport, and Maine. We hope you enjoy your visit.

We love this place because of the light filled rooms and the charming turn of the century features like the pillars dividing the dining and living rooms. It is convenient to all the things we need and enjoy. We've kept it simple and uncluttered to make it easy to enjoy during vacations. At the same time, we've chosen some special furniture and touches to make it feel like home.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo for almost a week and it was fabulous. It had everything we needed, The owner and her agent answered all our questions. It was a great home-base for our son's wedding in Peabody and hosting dinners in Boston and Salem. Very comfortable and convenient. Great to have a parking spot, too!

3 bedrooms in salem

  • 5 of 5
Very cute and comfortable and in the middle of it all in Salem, we slept 5 comfortably and walked to and from our wedding reception which meant a great deal. Having a confirmed parking spot alone was so valuable in time and trouble. All the amenities were there and worked well. We thought it was a great deal on booking this spot, and after staying there it was that and more so. Salem at Halloween is so much fun.

Great downtown location, close to all shopping, museum and restaurants. The property was spotless, well maintained and very spacious. The owner was professional, courteous, friendly and made us feel welcome.

Great condo in Salem...perfect jumping off point for exploring Salem and Boston and surrounding area

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this condo for 8 days in mid-April surrounding a family wedding rather than stay in the wedding hotel at the Salem Waterfront. Our larger family felt right at home in the cozy condo. The place was exactly as described, though the bunkbeds in the picture have been taken down and separated into 2 different bedrooms. It is on the first floor of a four-unit building with relatively easy access to both the parking area and the garbage cans in the rear. We were happily surprised to find wi-fi in the condo though it's not mentioned in the amenities.

The condo is on a quiet backstreet in Salem which happens to be one block from Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, a great liquor store, a passable grocery store, a Walgreens and a host of other local shops and eateries. We did decide to find a real grocery store further away after securing a few essentials locally. We spent the first few days wandering around Salem and taking in the local neighborhood. We spent the second half of our vacation traveling into Boston, NH, ME and RI and the fairly quick access to MA-128 (I-95), MA-107 and MA-1A provided relatively quick and painless access to whichever direction we wanted to travel.

We'd recommend Salem Beer Works for lunch and dinner (we had several meal there by coincidence). Ellen the owner and Christine the local realty agent were more than helpful and were available by cell phone when we needed something. If there was a drawback, i'd say the place is a little noisy as a house...hardwood floors and pretty thin walls/doors probably didn't help insulate the neighbors in the building from our kids running around in the condo. That said, the neighbors we did meet were very nice and understanding.

Definitely a great find in our book and if we need to stay in salem again in the future, this place will be our first choice!

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5
The home itself is very nicely furnished, sunny, clean, comfortable, quiet, traditional decor with some contemporary and artsy touches, very nice. The kitchen was well equipped, bathroom very clean. A nice space, peaceful and relaxing for the most part. It is part of a shared house so you may hear a neighbor enter the main hall area, but it was not a problem at all. You have your own private secure apartment within a house that holds 3 or 4 apartments. We were able to walk every where around Salem, it was only about 4-6 blocks to the main area of town. The bed was very comfy. Pillows were huge though, so if you don't like a giant fat pillow bring your own! We tucked our family of 6 into the apartment, and made out fine, but it is really better suited for groups of 4, after that people have to use a sleeper sofa, which are never great. The realtor who manages the property was helpful. Once you set things up you will get contact info for her. I would highly recommend contacting her thru her phone number rather then email for a much quicker response time. The house sits on a tiny little street, almost an alley, so keep your eyes open the first time you go looking for it! The immediate neighborhood is not fancy, but was peaceful every day we were there. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the place to anyone visiting Salem who does not want to be cooped up in a hotel room.
