Great home in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home and small backyard. We loved being able to eat in the patio with the gas grill. The home is attractively decorated, very clean, and comfortable for conversations in the living area. We had three adults and two small children and felt that it was a great size for our needs.

Good for couples

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect home base for two couples. It looks just like the pictures. The kitchen was perfect for cooking breakfast in the morning. The owner Maria is very nice and helpful with whatever you need. We loved Marblehead and it was perfect for traveling south to Boston or North to Maine.

Wonderful weekend, even with a toddler

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well-appointed. That's what we were looking for. Maria was accessible and helpful. The home is "charming," as they say on HGTV (read: old), so the walls and floors are thin. Our only issue was the early sunrise and the lack of blinds in all bedroom windows. It is private, but lets a lot of light in early in the morning. Our three year old didn't sleep well, so neither did we, and we tried to hang towels to keep it darker for longer. Overall, it was a wonderful place at a great price.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a long weekend to see a graduation. It was perfectly located for us and has a small grocery store located a two minute walk away. The house itself is cuter than the pictures indicate I think. We were five people, two adults and three children. The loft has a ladder that might be harder for young kids but all of our kids had no problem (5, 7, & 9). We will stay there if we are in town again. Thanks Maria!

Lovely surroundings!

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nicely decorated and clean. Smaller home but perfect for what we wanted. Small kitchen but adequate. We weren't there to cook. I plan to use it again in the future!

Marblehead wedding

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family out for my best friends wedding. Stayed at here for 5 days and my family doesn't want to leave. The house was perfect in every way. Can't wait to come back and visit. When we do we'll be staying here for sure
