About Timothy Giarrosso

Laurie Nugent and Tim Giarrosso, have lived and raised 3 daughters in Rockport for the past 28 years. They ran a contemporary craft gallery, Half Moon Harry, for 18 of those years. They are now designing their own product for catalogs and corporate venues.The two have incorporated their artistic style to create this beautiful ocean-side retreat for their guests.

Timothy Giarrosso purchased this house in 2004

Why Timothy Giarrosso chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Rockport, Ma. Is one of the premier destination spots in all of New England. The town is filled with artist galleries, unique shops and superb seafood restaurants. Evening strolls along the ocean shore and a friendly small town atmosphere make your stay both enjoyable and memorable.

What makes this house unique

Across from Front Beach,the Beach & King is just a few minutes’ walk from the village center and its many seafood restaurants, art galleries and unique shops.

Any time at all...our porch is the place for people watching, beach watching and just enjoying the ocean breeze. Here you will also find rocking chairs and beach chairs, beach umbrella, and a hose just for you to wash the sand off your toes.

And for those rainy or cool days, relax and enjoy the Main Room overlooking the beach. Read a good book or sketch and photograph the beautiful landscape.

best ever

  • 5 of 5

Extended family of 12 ranging in age from 1 to 70 . We have been spoiled and every other vacation will be compared to Beach & King. Great having all our own bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and the eating area a perfect size for all of us. The parlor table was great for jigsaw puzzles. The front porch was good for coffee in the morning, cocktails at night and a great playpen for the 1 year old. Easy walk to beach, shops, restaurants and take out lobster dinners. Never got in a car until Friday to go see a lighthouse. Highly recommend!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach and King House for our family vacation. There were 13 of us. My husband and I along with our grown children and their families. Six adults and 7 children, ages 1-60. It was the perfect house. Everyone had their own space and the main areas accommodated us all very well. The kitchen was perfect. Had everything we needed. Except plastic plates and cups for small children. We just bought paper for them. And we appreciate that recycling was an option. Anything we needed for preparing our meals was available including some seasoning options. The kitchen is stocked very well. All of the beds were comfortable. The owner supplied us with a rental company who had a baby bed, stroller and high chair there and set up when we arrived. All of those items were very clean and in excellent shape. We did not ever locate the video games and console that is listed in the amenities, much to the disappointment of our grandsons. But there were plenty of tv's for down time and the house has lots of games and books to read. I was wishing for more time to enjoy the books. The location could not be better. Right across from the beach so who ever stayed at the house for the baby's naps could still watch everyone having fun at the beach. Strolling through the park and down to Bearskin Neck is an enjoyable walk. Many options for food also within an easy walk. The grocery store is just a short drive away. Market Basket in Gloucester is a nice store with everything you might need. There is also Shaws a bit closer but not as big. The only negative and there is nothing to be done about this, is the parking. There is street parking available but if you leave in your car during the day to run to the store parking when you get back is a challenge. Especially this time of year because of the beach guest, there is a short parking spot on the property if you have a small car. We learned quickly to get all we needed at the store and then not leave again. After hours you can always move your car closer to the house but it is just difficult to get a place close to the house during the day. Our family loved the house and the area and hope to come back one day soon. Tim was a wonderful host, very available.

Owner's Response: Leanna, Thank you for the nice review! We wish you had asked us about the video games. Games are offered through our comcast/xfinity package. We will make sure to explain this clearly to future guests. We hope you and your lovely family can visit again sometime. Sincerely, Laurie & Tim

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach & King is the perfect vacation home for our four generation family. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated. The front porch is a lovely spot to enjoy sunrises, sunsets, and a spectacular ocean view. The beach and town are steps away! Rockport offers a variety of wonderful shops and restaurants. Gloucester and Salem, with activities for all ages, are only a short drive. Boston is accessible by train. Tim and Laurie, the hosts at the Beach & King, are the best! They are hospitable and accommodating to their guests! We tremendously enjoyed our week at the Beach & King and are looking forward to a return visit next summer!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Eleven people (6 adults and 5 children) and there was plenty of room in the Beach King. The front porch, where you can watch the beach and the town of Rockport go by, is the best part of the house. We spent many mornings and evenings on the porch. The kitchen is huge and stocked more than adequately. Tim made sure we got settled in and familiar with all the house has to offer. The train to Boston is only a five minute walk and the shops and restaurants of Rockport are just down the street. The lobster benedict at Nates is spectacular and there are many ice cream shops to treat yourself to. Gloucester is a ten minute drive to great restaurants and fishing. If we ever come back to Rockport, I would certainly stay again.

Wonderful Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Eleven of us in all and no one felt crowded in the Beach and King, especially since there were five bathrooms and many bedrooms to choose from. Although the weather did not always cooperate, there was plenty to keep everyone entertained: board games, cards, jigsaw puzzles, a spacious TV room and well stocked kitchen for those who love to cook and bake.

The house has many lovely paintings and interesting conversation pieces which added to the enjoyment of staying there. We greatly appreciated how clean everything was and how gracious Tim and Laurie were.

Rockport is a delightful town and "Beach and King" is nothing short of the best.

amazing beautiful inn

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the Beach King. We rented the house for our annual woman's weekend. When we arrived the house was immaculate and each room was beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked and roomy enough for 14 women to bump around in. The house was private with a beautiful front porch where we spent many hours laughing over coffee or cocktails. The view of the beach was in front of us. We walked to dinner and shops which are nearby. The house had unique artwork and interesting clocks! We hope to return and make this our new annual destination

For over 160 years, people have traveled to Rockport for our miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters from around the world.

From the Beach & King is Front Beach, an active beach on Sandy Bay pointing toward the east. The beach is also within an easy walk from the Rockport village.
