Talk About Rooms with a View!

  • 5 of 5

This charming third floor condo has wonderful large windows overlooking Marblehead Harbor. The rooftop deck was a delightful spot to watch the sun rise over the harbor. There was so much within easy walking distance - several restaurants, a bakery, groceries, shops and many of the historical treasures of Marblehead. Two nearby local parks provided great water vistas, as well as a history lesson. Marblehead proved to be a great"home base" and we explored much of the North Shore with short day trips. The owners offered helpful local information, great directions and were a pleasure to work with. The condo is comfortable and attractive with those extra touches that make you feel at home when you come through the door.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My family of three stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend, as we have extended family who live in Marblehead. This apartment was the perfect location for us. We arrived tired the night before Thanksgiving. We were happy to find that the owner stocked some items in the refrigerator and pantry for our use - coffee, cream, orange juice, bagels, cream cheese, seltzer water, etc., which made it easy to feel right at home without worrying about stocking up on supplies. The apartment itself is very charming - we loved the sitting room and bedroom overlooking Marblehead Harbor, with huge picture windows to take in the views. We also loved the roof deck. The apartment was clean, stocked with linens and towels, and very comfortable. We will definitely plan to rent it again when we visit our family in the future.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

This is, by FAR, the best experience I've ever had with VRBO. While it isn't the cheapest option you'll find in the area, it's worth every penny. Marblehead is stunning and the Honeymoon Suite is nicely situated, across the street from restaurants, around the corner from the grocery store, a short walk from the quaint downtown area.

This was my first trip to New England. I wanted to make the most of it, so I visited Salem, Rockport, Fall River, Peabody, and Boston. While they were all enjoyable visits, Marblehead was the most relaxed and beautiful. Somehow, it seems to have succeeded in keeping most of the chains out, so it has more unique stores and restaurants than most places you'll visit. If you enjoy supporting local businesses, this is the place for you!

The unit has amazing views of the water from the bedroom and living room. The bed is comfortable. The towels are high quality. It truly feels like a home away from home. It could use a dishwasher, but the kitchen is otherwise nicely stocked. Phil even provides ingredients for a welcome breakfast.

If you have a chance, eat at The Landing, across the street. They have a very creative (and tasty) take on clam chowder.

We had a fantastic time. If we ever make it back this way, we'll be staying here!

Outstanding Waterfront Apt with comforts of Home and Easy Access to Boston and points North

  • 5 of 5

Well kept and organized Apartment. Easy to find with great parking. There is a Dining / Sitting Room overlooking Marblehead Harbor. You may want to spend your vacation right here -:) The unit also has a rooftop Deck to let you get outside and enjoy the view. There is a full kitchen set up if you want to have breakfast or dinner in.

Owner left some basics, milk, cereal, butter etc in Fridge and pantry to help with. This was a nice touch so that we did not have to run to the store for every little item. There are great restaurants within a short walk. You will not want to leave this place.

Only one slight thing, the Apt is up two flights of stairs on the top floor on the building so be sure you can handle luggage to get up to Apartment. Would return in a heartbeat !
