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.

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!

Thoroughly Enjoyable!! Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at the Harbor-View Condo, and it was fantastic. First, the Owner (Phil) went above and beyond our expectations with thoughtful touches that made our stay even more enjoyable. Accommodations were clean, comfortable, and it had everything we needed (and more).

The location can't be beat. Walking distance to several great restaurants, pubs, and quaint shops made this stay comfortable and convenient. Although parking isn't a problem, we didn't need our car during our time there and enjoyed the best of Marblehead, all within just a short distance from the condo.

We'd love to come back to the area, and if we do, we'd certainly stay at this place again!

Wonderful view over Marblehead Harbour

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days in February - it was cold outside, but toasty warm inside this apartment which was perfectly suitable for our needs. The apartment had everything we needed, including breakfast goods for our first morning which lasted most of the week - thank you Phil. The kitchen was well equiped and the bed was comfortable. The apartment has wi-fi which was good, but the internet for the television did not work - however this did not matter as it allowed us to have a television free few days reading our books or, even better, watching the ever changing view out of the window,

Phil responded to any questions we had very promptly and I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for a holiday break.

Owner's Response: The internet for the TV is connected via ROKU. If it has not been used for some days or weeks I have found all that needs to be done is to unplug the power cord to the ROKU device and plug it back in again. I did this and ROKU worked fine bringing in all my favorite NETFLIX and HULU programs.

Marvelous Condo

  • 4 of 5

Property was as advertised and we were delighted at all the natural light and open floor plan. Convenient to local grocery and "Old Town". Due to the winter storm we had quite the view of the crashing waves and snowfall. Absolutely would recommend this condo to any person wanting a true Marblehead experience. The owner was gracious and very friendly. Thanks for a wonderful stay in your lovely condo.

Always a joy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I flew up from North Carolina for a much needed rest after a year full of stress ( my sister died and his brother died unexpectedly plus I fell and broke my leg and was in a full -length hard cast for 6 months). The rental was , as always, just beautiful. You had left the refrig. stocked with more food than we could even use. Everything was super clean, beautiful, great and the location is just perfect. We have stayed with you before and you just bend over backwards for your guest! I walked after dark every night by myself in uptown Marblehead and always feel so safe. Your location is just perfect for walking to the grocery store (everyone was sooo friendly there), going uptown to shop or just to look, going across the street to sit at the harbor ( the fisherman are also sooo friendly) and eating at the two restaurants across the streets. I enjoyed walking at night and looking at everyone's Halloween decorations and hunting for sea glass ( I found some) up the street. The area is great for taking wonderful photos also. We drive into Salem (great if you love Halloween like I do) , Gloucester ( good beaches for sea glass and the Fisherman's Memorial) , Rockport , ( they also have many unique shops there and we drove up to Freeport, Maine. We drove up the coast so we could see the beaches and lighthouses.

When we make it up there again, we plan on letting you know. We would never want to stay anywhere else. Thank you so very much. I hope you found the sheets I washed and left drying in the dryer. Thanks again!!!!!
