Heaven on Earth !!!!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to spend a holiday, the cottage was awesome, clean, good amenities and a pool and jacuzzi to die for.

The owners were very friendly and helpful although we really never saw them that often.

The area was perfect with a coast line that had spectacular views and restaurants, we loved Marblehead, Rockport, and Kennebunkeport. Boston was only a short trip away we went on the train and also the ferry from Salem into Boston Harbour which was a lovely sail.

I would strongly recommend a car to tour the area. I would have no hesitation in returning to visit.

fantastic 2 week vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Victoria's villa in Swampscott. We stayed for 2 weeks and were very, very comfortable with the accommodations.

Most of our time was spent with family coming over and relaxing by the huge pool and heated spa. The back yard is completely enclosed by huge Arborvitaes so you are sheltered from any cold east wind. The beach is only a 5 minutes walk but as we New Englanders know, the ocean water is quite cold.

The cottage has just about everything you need for your stay, with stores and restaurants close by via car or bike.

Victoria goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable during your stay.

We will be coming back again next year.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

LOVED LOVED LOVED this beautiful, modern cottage tucked away on a beautiful estate along the shore in Swampscott. So close to shopping, beaches, and historic Marblehead! So clean and comfortable; the perfect getaway! And a fabulous saltwater pool and Jacuzzi to boot! My two young Marblehead grandchildren visited everyday to our delight! Definitely returning next summer and hopefully for many summers to come! Thank you Victoria, Jory, and family!

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautifully decorated, has everything you need and the pool is just wonderful. I would recommend a stay here but just a few pointers: there was no information in the house at all on local attractions, restaurants etc. A welcome pack would have been nice.

Also it is not that close to the beach, about an 8 minute walk. The main house is on a busy road but the cottage is in the back garden so nice and quiet. You are however part of the main house and it is their pool and garden as well. Although the family does not use it very often, 1 night the noisy grand children were there and used the pool.

All in all we had a great stay.

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely recommend this place! Clean, comfortable, and filled with all the amenities you could hope for - and would never find at a hotel. The hospitality was great (you'll feel like it's your own private house). This place is perfect for honeymooners or out of towners looking for a beautiful place to call home for a week. 20 minutes from Boston, and only an hour or two from everywhere in New England you may want to visit. My wife and I rented a car and took day trips to Maine, Nantucket, Newport, Boston, Plymouth, and it worked out perfectly. A+ rental! Don't hesitate to book it!

Amazing!!! Couple from Pennsylvania

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here, very clean and cozy. The pool, gardens and owners were fantastic and everything was exactly as we had expected it to be. Loved Marblehead and Boston being so close to shop and walk. Many beaches to choose from, right down the road. Very relaxing and peaceful.

Boston, a short 25 minute drive from Villa bel Mare, has everything an American city, with an old-world influence, can offer. There are world-renowned art museums, the ballet, theatre shows, concerts, first class shopping on Newbury Street, international restaurants, and the North End where you will think you are standing in an Italian village! Walk the Freedom Trail and visit the sight of the famous Boston Tea Party. You can explore the abundance of American history in the vast area surrounding Boston. Villa bel Mare is 7 minutes from the well-known 'witch town' of Salem. You can visit the museum there and then head further north to Gloucester and Cape Ann or even the rugged coast of Maine. The nearest sea village to Villa bel Mare is Marblehead. You can take an oil painting class with a view of the harbor, attend a musical concert, or sit in a charming cafe and enjoy your favorite beverage.
