4.8 - Loved this quaint little apartment with the fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give it a 4.8 rating.

The location of this apartment was FABULOUS! It is right in the middle of a cute little shipping town. It was cute, well kept and quiet. In addition, the owner was was VERY responsive to a few questions that we had.

There were a couple of things that were not quite as ideal. Being above the cupcake shop was fine (BTW, they have GREAT cupcakes!!!), but it felt odd going through there. Not really an issue, but we just didn't want to be in anyone's way. The other downside is having to do the laundry and be out by 10. We had to get the whole family up by 7 to gather all the linens to start the laundry. We went straight until 10 and even had to leave towels in the dryer because it was a slow dryer. The owner understood being that we had to catch an airplane, but I still felt like having to do our own laundry was a burden. I'm most other places we stay with VRBO, we strip the beds and throw dirty towels in the tub - that is fine, we can do that in the last few minutes before leaving. We would have liked to sleep a bit longer to prepare for our day of travel.

Other than laundry, I'm sure you will love staying here!

Perfectly quaint cottage style apartment

This apartment was the PERFECT location and size for my sisters and I to spend the weekend in Rockport. We walked every where aside from a few short excursions.

Great Place on Bear Skin Neck

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to take a fall trip/anniversary trip, so since I'm the planner, I got to searching for places to stay up in New England and found Rockport, MA! Bear Skin Neck is such an amazing place! If you want to go somewhere that is small, homey and has that Cape Cod vibe, go here! In November, it is sort of their off season, so we had the place to ourselves. It was like walking around a little Cape Cod movie set and there are tons of cute stores and vintage post boxes! Also check out Motif #1, a little red building in town that is worth several pictures and covered in colorful buoys.

The rental itself was WONDERFUL. It was just the two of us, but it can easily sleep 5. It is sort of an attic apartment and very cute. They got very creative with space and storage and it was just enough space for us! Also, there are great views of the street from the rental, so people watching is awesome! It had all the amenities of home.

Only thing I noticed was it took a minute for the tub water to heat up, but just run it a minute, turn it off and come back and it works like a charm! The shower was great and beat all the stress and knots out of my back from air travel the day previous!

Love this rental and definitely want to come back!!!

Sweet and simple. Good price and great location

  • 4 of 5

Access to the apartment was easy and the parking nearby. The place is simple with a coastal feel. the apartment was larger than expected and comfortable. The place was fairly well supplied, i.e. oil,sugar,coffee filters etc. I would recommend it as it was good value.

The town of Rockport and the city of Gloucester make up the island portion of Cape Ann. Joined to the mainland by 2 bridges, Cape Ann forms the northeast extreme of Massachusetts. Rockport enjoys a unique tourist setting perched on the edge of the Atlantic's rocky shore. Home to some of America's finest artists, as well as intrepid lobstermen who grace our evening tables with crustaceans plucked from the sea that very morning. A setting to make Norman Rockwell proud, white churches and picket fences abound. Famous in the late 1800's for its granite resources quarried by generations of Swedish and Finnish craftsmen, look for the unique rock walls each worker built around his home during his cherished days off. Sunset cruises aboard a 2-masted schooner complement a day on the ocean photographing humpback whales or fishing Jeffries' Ledge. Each Sunday night on Back Beach the bandstand comes alive with the music of local musicians. Escape into a story-book setting, and relax.
