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.

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It was clean but also outdated - did not like having to make beds and then strip and wash all linens for the price we paid.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.

Massachusetts Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay on Starknaught Road. The house is very nice, very clean. They provided specific instructions about their expectations for leaving the house just the way we found it for the next person. The appliances were in very good condition, we cooked for about 20 people and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed.

The price is very reasonable for such a big house. It provided lots of privacy and it’s just a short walk to the beach. The beautiful beach!

It was a pleasure to do business with Mike King. He responded promptly to my inquires and offered help from his brother or father if we needed anything. Nice guy.

It was my first trip to New England in many years. I still can’t get over how beautiful Gloucester is. If you’re looking for a family get-away, it doesn’t get any better than #177143.

Such a great beach house for families!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this house - 5 adults and 3 kids and it was the perfect amount of space. Lots of cool things for young kids to do - including wild turkeys who wander the property. It's a short walk to the beach, and the town is super fun. Highly recommend it. The only thing that threw me off is it's a little hard to find the first time and the house might be a different color from the photo? Great place to stay!

Fabulous location and Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the week. The pics do not do this place justice! The house is nicely set back from the road nestled by a wall of trees that give you a feeling of privacy and solitude. While there are houses on the other side of the trees, you don't see much of them, particularly at this time of year. The deck out back is a very pleasant place to sit and enjoy a cocktail or meal. We also had the company of the several wild turkeys that show up at dusk and then roost in the trees at night. There are also the two bunnies who don't seem to mind the turkeys or humans.

While we found the location a bit far for us to walk to the beach, particularly since the walk back is pretty much uphill, we saw several people who walked from the area to the beach. The location is very convenient to shopping areas and to get to other areas of Gloucester.

Inside the house on the main floor is very open and roomy, with a well supplied kitchen, laundry, half-bath, dining room, den, living room, and plenty of comfy places to sit. The Internet/wifi worked really well. The bedrooms, on the second floor, are roomy and pleasant with window a/c if needed. We used the master bedroom which also has a nice ceiling fan. There is plenty of dresser and shelf space to store your belongings, too. We felt very much at home! The owner couldn't have been nicer and provided all the info we needed. We would definitely look to rent this place again!
