Luxury home with the sound of the ocean!!! Wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I rented this home for the two weeks that included July 4th. We invited friends & family to join us; a total of four couples for 4-5 day stays. It was SO wonderful to enjoy this gracious home with them at the oceans edge. The sound of the oceans 24-7, a view of Straightsmouth Light, the majic of Rockport made for a memorable vacation with a beneficial "sea cure" had by all. We will always return to Rockport to get our fix of sea majic.

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. Had everything we could possibly ask for and more. The location and view of the water - going to sleep to waves crashing on the rocks, morning sunrises that one can't justifiably describe, and the breezes and smell of ocean air each and every day. Susan was a pleasure to work with and we thank her for sharing her home with us. Highly recommend and look forward to returning to sometime in the future.

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful house. The house has a great flow with plenty of space to congregate or to retreat and have some privacy. The views are amazing! The house is well equipped. The kitchen/family room is very spacious.

Susan was very accommodating and easy to deal with.

Can highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

The house is designed to provide plenty of space for our group of eight..we could all pitch in when we wantee to eat in to help in the also had enough spaces throughout for one to be alone to read or just relax....the views are awsome from the house or with a short walk, to sit on the rocks watching the ocean or trying ones luck fishing for blues or stripers...It nearness to Rockport offer a variety of shopping or eating ot opportunities...The owner took her time in a welcome tour of the house..I would highly recommend a stay at this wonderful house.

The house is just as beautiful in person as it appears in the pictures. The owner, Susan, was very welcoming and accommodating. The home is very clean and very comfortable which is always a priority for me when traveling. We prepared dinner at the home one night and the kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials. The home has beautiful views of the ocean from almost every room. It was a luxury to wake up in the master bedroom each morning with such a gorgeous view of the ocean. The home is just minutes from the beautiful little town of Rockport and it is also conveniently located near supermarkets and restaurants. We went to Salem, about a half hour drive, which is the coolest place to be in October. Thank you, Susan, for allowing us the most pleasant experience of staying in your beautiful home. The best recommendation I can give is that we would most definitely stay here again.

Serenity multiplied!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned last night and I wish we were still there. Four nights with cousins that have never traveled together before and there truly was magic! What an absolutely wonderful house to share! My husband and I have used VRBO several times and again were not disappointed! Susan is charming, warm and welcoming. Her house becomes your house immediately. The house is very well stocked with everything you need to cook, dine and relax. Lots of kitchen utensils, dishes, pans, etc. Far exceeding any experience we have had before. It was a pleasure to stay in, cook, laugh and enjoy each other. There are more spaces to curl up than you can count! Susan had a fire laid in all three fireplaces for us. We used the one in the kitchen after coming in from a cold rainy sightseeing day! Boy was it welcoming. Morning coffee on the outside balcony, evening games in the upstairs sitting area, awesome meals in the big dining room, cozy breakfast in the big kitchen..... the fun is endless here! If your guests need space, it is here. If you all hang together, there are lots of great places to do it in this house. The views are amazing! The amenities are delightful! All the beautiful things Susan has collected are great to look at. There are so many interesting and lovely details to this house. Everyone of us wants to come back. Susan is just great. And we are all so grateful that she is willing to share her beautiful home with complete strangers. That is a special person. And she owns a special place.
