Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you Ivan! It was our first Christmas away from family - had a splendid time. Loved the big kitchen, beautiful decks, hot tub, jacuzzi, and of course the phenomenal views. What a relaxing, refreshing and romantic Christmas.

Happy New Year!

Great place to celebrate our anniversary

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this place and had a great time. It was close to everything -- Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and just a short drive or ferry away from Boston. The view from both porches is fantastic --it was nice to relax with a local brew after a day of sight seeing. We were able to drive to Cape Cod in about two hours. If you're looking to experience the Massachusett's coastline, this is a great place to stay.

A wonderful couple's getaway!

A wonderful couple's getaway!

My husband and I stayed a week and found the home a great place to stay. Whether we were out site seeing for the day, or staying nearby walking the beach and soaking in the hot tub, it was an ideal place to relax and enjoy each other's company. The views out both balconies were breathtaking, and listening to the waves lap on the shore while relaxing inside was perfect. The location made it easy to get to all the historic spots we wanted to see, but it was far enough removed from the city to really unwind. Ivan was particularly helpful in making our stay comfortable, and I would definitely recommend a stay at this lovely home to my friends and family!

Geheimtipp!

  • 5 of 5
Ein sehr komfortables und schön gelegenes Haus, welches kaum Wünsche offen lässt. In der oberen Etage befindet sich das große Schlafzimmer mit wundervollen Blick über die Bucht bis hin nach Boston sowie ein fantastisches Bad mit allem Wellness-Komfort. Unten komplett ausgestattete Küche, Esszimmer, Wohnzimmer mit Kamin. Die Benutzung des Whirlpools und des Gasgrills auf der Terrasse sind das Sahnehäubchen! Nicht zuletzt vielen Dank nochmals an unseren lieben und aufmerksamen Vermieter Ivan, der uns sogar am ersten Tag mit Frühstück versorgte:-)

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Ivan's wonderful apartment for 4 days. Our daughter was running in the Boston Marathon and we wanted to be close, but not too close. We were excited the minute we were in this neighborhood. The view is amazing and the comfort level was great. This apartment is a very short walk to the train station and getting to and from downtown Boston was a breeze. Head north a for a beautiful drive and see Rockport and the state parks in the area. We are looking forward to going back in 2016 to watch our daughter run the Marathon again. We would love to be guests of Ivan's again. Thank you to Ivan for opening up his wonderful space!!

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5
Great views from both floors, everything was as advertised in the listing. Ivan was easy to work with in scheduling the reservation and called the first night of our stay to see if everything was OK. So many amenities, we didn't get to try them all. And a great little bakery just around the corner. Swampscott is off the beaten path a little, so keep in mind it takes a while to get other spots around Boston, but this was certainly a nice place to get away to...
