Why Mike King chose Gloucester

I grew up in Gloucester and still have family living there. If you need any recommendations for points of interest, restaurants, or activities I would be happy to offer my suggestions. This property has a lot of privacy in the back yard. The beach is only 1/2 mile away.

We visited this vacation home in mid April, 2008. All of us were very comfortable from the time we first opened the door. It was clean and cozy. Having a family room and a livingroom was great because those who didn't want to watch TV, could sit by the fireplace.

The layout was perfect for 4 single women. I would recommend it for families as well. The sheets and blankets were provided, along with more than enough towels for everyone. This saved a lot of space in the vehicle, so we were able to shop till we dropped.

The backyard deck provided lots of space to sit in the sun. The property was large and well maintained, so children would have a place to run around.

We originally intended to stay in Cape Cod, but it was too expensive. So we chose this location. There was a lovely beach, just a few blocks away, which was great for walks along the coast.

(By the way, we drove to Cape Cod and found it was not all it was cracked up to be.)

We were within a 30 minute drive to New Hampshire and a further 18 miles from Maine, so there was a lot to do. The location could not have been better.

Believe it or not, there was even a train close by to travel into Boston without using the car.

If you eat at the Causeway Restaurant, order one meal for two people and take it home. It's far too much for one person. The Chicken Parmesan was delicious.

As for the owners, they were very friendly and helpful. A light was left on for us, because we arrived late. A note was waiting on the counter to provide any help we might need.

We would stay in this area again, it was very peaceful and relaxing.

Secret garden near to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We rent this house in July 2017. We were 6 (2 adults and 4 kids). This is an really cool family house near to the beach (good harbour beach). The kitchen was freshly renovated and functional. we have a lot of space inside and outside to play ! We walked all day to the beach (about 10 min of walk) and have a shower in the outside shower after the beach ! I recommend this house for any family who would like to have good time on the area.

Great spacious beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for Christmas so that we could be close to extended family and have plenty of space for everyone to stay and have a family meal. It was perfect for our purpose and I imagine it would be wonderful in the summer time with it's proximity to the best beach on the North Shore (Good Harbor) with a nice deck and yard in the back of the house. Owners' instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We did not encounter any difficulties and enjoyed our stay immensely!

Location was perfect. Short walk from beautiful beach made it very enjoyable. Home is well maintained. Heating worked and we enjoyed the fire place.

Comfortable, well maintained and equipped house in a lovely quiet but convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house for a summer vacation several times over the last few years. We have travelled from Ireland and also spent our holidays in various other parts of the US, but this house in Gloucester continues to be our favourite. This was our first time staying in Fall/wintertime and we found it equally appealing. Extremely comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The owners have consistently been most helpful and friendly. Within easy walking distance to the beach, and also close to shops and good restaurants, yet in a quiet and private neighbourhood , it ticks all the boxes for us. We'll be back!

Adequate but nothing special

  • 3 of 5

It was clean but also outdated - did not like having to make beds and then strip and wash all linens for the price we paid. Nothing close by to walk to - beach was a little further than we were led to believe. BBQ grill did not work and toilet seats were both broken. Owner was aware of toilet seats so I am sure they will get replaced. King bedroom doorknob did not work. Pricey for the amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review of our home. The toilet seats were replaced after your departure and we are looking at updating the house in some areas before next Summer. Our preference with linens is to leave them folded on top of the bed so incoming renters know they are clean and fresh when they arrive. i double checked and the correct distance of 4/10 of a mile to the beach is advertised.
