Marblehead Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 2 (third in roll away)

This clean, tastefully furnished condo is perfect for a couple. Can accommodate one additional in a rollaway bed. It features spectacular views of Marblehead's old town State Street Landing. Watch the lobster boats unload their catch. Enjoy the bustle of activity as the 'Hannah Glover' arrives, directly in front of the condo, to ferry children to the summer day camp on Children's Island. Even while cooking in the unit's full kitchen, watch as sailboats criss-cross the harbor. This fully independent corner condo is located on the top floor of a three story building.

The condo is furnished to attract guests who appreciate quality (leather sofas, new carpets, original artwork, antiques, etc). The dining table seats four and directly looks onto the harbor. The unit enjoys direct access to a roof deck offering panoramic harbor views. Access is via a stairway from the living room. In season, chairs and plants are set up.

The deck is ideal for sun bathing, morning coffee, and evening cocktails. The southeast facing deck provides beautiful views of the harbor and the opposite shore at sunset.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean with great view and centrally located to attractions. Very friendly town. A detailed map of Marblehead in the unit showing restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacy could be helpful but we eventually found them. Enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestion about the map. The Chamber of Commerce does put out a map and a copy was on the green cupboard under the photo of the Brooklyn Bridge, but I doubt that it contains all the details you were looking for. I will speak to the Chamber to see if some improvements could be made to the map. Phil

Wonderful place with great view.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for reflecting on the history of New England, the role of commerce in the development of the US and the adventurousness of the ship captains of the early colonies. The subsequent economy has also made it perfect to preserve the beauty of a town where people used walking as a major transportation method. I seldom used the car that I had rented.

For beauty and relaxation one can really enjoy Marblehead. The apartment was roomy, clean, and homey. There was a lovely new kitchen which I little used because the small breakfast place, across the street was delightful. There was a charming restaurant on the Landing. And I found a rather hidden restaurant away from the water. I enjoyed the seafood in all the places.

The comfortable bed gave me a restful sleep.

The host watched out for my comfort and provided excellent instructions.

I am looking forward to returning for another visit one of these days.

What a find !!!! very impressed, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Why would you stay in a motel when you can find a wonderful rental like this. The unit has one of the most picturesque views that you could imagine. It was beautiful looking out over the harbor, sitting there drinking your morning coffee and watching the boats in the harbor, so relaxing. The unit even has a roof top deck for you to go out and enjoy. Unit was beautiful and up to date w/newly remodeled kitchen. Unit was very clean and the bed was most comfortable. Only about 10 minutes from Salem and 20-30 minutes into downtown Boston. Marblehead was a quaint little coastal town w/very friendly people. They had a great breakfast spot (Driftwood) right across the street where you got a great breakfast for a very good price and it is where all the locals go. Anyone looking for a rental in this area, you better book this you wont be disappointed. We will again book here whenever we decide to visit the area again, great rental.

We love being in the heart of the old historic district, across from the Landing and Driftwood Restaurants. The rooms are all large and very clean. New kitchen is a delight.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while in the area attending our son's graduation from Endicott College. Phil was very helpful and flexible during the rental process. The unit was very nice and perfect for us. The location and view were great as well. Having a few things in the fridge for us to use including coffee and half and half was a really nice touch! We very much enjoyed our stay! Thank you!
