Overview

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 spots in all of Rockport. There is no other property like this one. It is completely surrounded by the ocean, looking out over two islands, 3 active lighthouses and a stunning peaceful cove. Lobster boats amble through the 'gap' in front of the house which is perched high on pink granite rocks. All this and quite simply, no people.

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

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. 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 peninsula, completely surrounded by the ocean. Perfectly 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.

About Molly Gasnick

My family moved to New England in 1970 and we spent years exploring every corner of it. From beaches to mountains there was so much to see. Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Acadia National Park and the National Seashore were family favorites, but I discovered Cape Ann has a flavor and a vibe all its own. In 2011 I bought this piece of the Massachusetts north shore and have felt blessed ever since.

Why Molly Gasnick chose Rockport

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 who reach out to me on HomeAway.

What makes this condo unique

The sun rises 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 onto the rocks below. Leave the door open at night so you can hear the waves and the wind in the bedroom as you sleep.

These are the sights and sounds of Gap Head. Those who come want to stay forever.

Near the Sea we forget to count the days

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely, quiet place to stay in the heart of Rockport on a secluded enclave of million dollar homes. Ocean views from the kitchen and living room windows and the porch. If you got any closer to the water, you'd be in it! The condo is cozy, inviting and warm, tastefully decorated and clean. Communication was excellent. Molly is very easy going and helpful. I would highly recommend this lovely retreat and hope I can return in the future.

Wonderful retreat by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be able to reserve an 8 night stay here between Christmas and New Years. It's on a very quiet street in Rockport in a wonderful old home.

The views are stunning - the show starts at sunrise. It's worth getting up early just to see the colors in the sky mix with unusual cloud formations, or watch the fishing boats going by.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils you'll need and there's a full size refrigerator, microwave, and stove. Hot water is endless! The beds are comfortable, as is the sofa in facing the picture window looking out to the sea.

Molly provided a detailed list of "good to know" things, including the path to take if you want to walk into town. My suggestion - take the walk every day! There's always something different to see along the way and by the time you're in town you'll be ready for a good breakfast at the Red Skiff!

Other items of note - good cable, movies, and internet access. The unit is on the second floor, with no neighbors above or on the side. The master bedroom and living room both have doors that lead to a huge patio.

Molly was quick to respond to my initial email request and every subsequent communication. She also did a non-intrusive check in by phone the day after we arrived to make sure everything was OK and to see if we needed anything.

Overall, yes - as some people mentioned, it's a little rustic. But in a good way. It's what it should be - a secluded getaway that has charm and character.

Wow. Seriously. Wow.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on our visit to Rockport because of where we stayed. The view from this oceanfront condo is absolutely magical. I think we counted three lighthouses visible from the deck. It is located literally at land's end. The condo was neat and tidy and had all the amenities that we needed. I would recommend this special place to anyone who is looking for a pretty and peaceful place to stay in a great beach community.

This place is heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have deemed this oceanfront retreat "my happy place" . It is STUNNING. I am a repeat guest and the excitement upon arrival never gets old. My breath is immediately taken away as soon as I walk into the living-room and see ocean for miles. I spend most of my time sitting on the spacious patio starring at the ocean, listening to the waves, watching the fishing boats and the awe inspiring sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. Parking is conveniently located in front of the unit. I highly recommend this one of a kind rental.

We were fortunate enough to have on of the best weekends weather wise to have gone there. We found the condo very acceptable and provided for all our needs. Our host made everything easy for us. But the best part is the beautiful covered deck that overlooks the ocean, rocks, and 3 lighthouses. We spent a good amount of time there when we were not at the beach. The views were so great. Having 2 full bathrooms was also great. The kitchen needs a bit of work but was all we needed it to be. All in all we loved the place and would go back in a flash.

Map

Rockport is one of New England's most historic and picturesqe seaside towns. Property is just one mile from the town center with its galleries and charming shops. Some of the most beautiful beaches on the North Shore are within walking distance. Lovely area to bike, walk, climb, lounge and paint.
