OCEAN FRONT RETREAT IN ROCKPORT

Rockport Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 4

This ocean front condo is situated at the end of Gap Head, one of the most beautiful points in all of Rockport. It is part of a large 6 bedroom house that sits 30 feet above the water on a rocky outcropping.

The house is remarkably private with the ocean almost completely surrounding it. A rare and unusual Rockport property.

Due to its location on a cliff over the ocean, no children are allowed.

This rental is new to the market. Recently bought, it features new furniture, beds and mattresses. Owner is responsive and caring.

Condo has one larger master bedroom with a queen bed, door to the huge porch with ocean and lighthouse views.

Second bedroom is smaller and has a bunkbed. Second bedroom has its own private full bathroom.

There are two full bathrooms total with tubs.

Livingroom is nicely furnished and features absolutely stunning views of the ocean. Access to the porch is through the living room or master bedroom. There is also a small galley-like kitchen.

Property features an enormous (18x25') covered porch with full outdoor living room set seating 10 and dining table seating 6. Ocean views from living room, porch, master bedroom and kitchen. Please note the condo is on the second floor of the house.

Rockport has many interesting areas. Many of the ocean front rentals this size are in town, on the harbor or on one of the town beaches.

It is extremely unusual to find a small, affordable, ocean front rental of this quality: on a quiet pennisula, completely surrounded by the ocean. Pefectly private and absolutely stunning. You will be captivated.

Garden Beach is within walking distance along ocean path (half a mile). Good Harbor beach is 2 miles down the road. Area is perfect for biking and walking, climbing and exploring. Rockport town center is one mile away and accessible by the same ocean path.

My family moved to New England in 1970 and spent years exploring every state and national park, beach and mountain. Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Acadia and the National Seashore were family favorites, but Cape Ann has a flavor and a vibe all its own. In 2011 I bought a piece of the Massachusetts coast line and have felt blessed ever since.

Molly Gasnick purchased this condo in 2011

When this condo came on the market, I was sure I wouldn't get it. But I had to try because I knew there was absolutely nothing like it anywhere. I love nothing more than to share it with friends and people I who reach out to me on HomeAway.

The sun rise over the water in the middle of the picture window, then floods the living room with an impossibly bright light. Take your coffee and head out to the porch. Watch lobster boats amble by, seagulls trailing behind and wonder, 'What was I going to do today?' And, how important was it? Its hard to leave. In the evening, watch the moon rise red over the island and wait for stars. Listen to the waves smash or roll onto the rocks below. Leave the door open at night and you can hear the waves and the wind it in the bedroom as you sleep.

The sights and sounds of Gap Head transform and enrich those who come and make them want to stay forever.

EVERYTHING WAS AS ADVERTISED, PLUS MORE.

The condo was just as we imagined it from the photos. It was very clean, cozy, and equipped with all the basics for a comfortable visit. The views were outstanding--the sunrises and the moonrises over the ocean were magnificent.

Rockport is a great vacation destination. We walked the nearby beaches and spent a relaxing afternoon at Halibut Point State Park. We browsed the small shops and feasted on delightful pastries at Helmut's Strudel on Bearskin Neck. We enjoyed a fabulous, Italian dinner at Lo Grasso's Cafe Bistro.

There are many sightseeing opportunities nearby. We took several day trips . . . Boston, Cambridge, Concord, and Salem. But my favorite place to be was on the covered porch of this “Ocean Front Retreat” listening to and watching the waves.

**THE MOST AMAZING SUNRISES, OCEANFRONT!**

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the most amazing ocean views from your living room, this is your place! This condo is located on the rocks in Rockport... you hear the ocean waves breaking against the rocks while you sleep. We found ourselves staring out the window for hours mesmerized by the view. You will want to see every sunrise over the island while you stay here, it will blow your mind~The outside deck is so peaceful for morning coffee or afternoon iced tea. You will find that you never want to leave this view to go anywhere!! Make sure you walk to the town of Rockport via the ocean front path. Great restaurants/shopping in downtown Rockport. Many wonderful beaches driving distance from the condo. Take a drive to Gloucester and see lots of fishing history.

The owner was very responsive, check in was easy, and the price to stay here was very reasonable for what we got~The view is a million dollar view!! The condo was clean and simple. I have recommended this condo to friends and they have loved it too! I suggest you book this condo and enjoy this peaceful retreat in Rockport, you will NOT be disappointed!!

We cannot wait to return, we will be going back again in September 2014~
