Perfect location for a spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apt is lovely and spacious. The full kitchen allowed me to cook my own food. Location is great just park the car and walk everywhere!

December break in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5

John was the perfect host. He responded very quickly when we booked the stay and provided clear instructions about the rental.Because cars need to be off the street overnight in winter he even let us use his garage for the car when he was not there. The rental was as described with everything in the kitchen that you could need for cooking. Also plenty of towels and bedding. The apartment was very cosy for our winter stay and John kindly adjusted the hot water heater for us. The weather was mild for December so we loved walking in town and exploring all the beaches. Because of the stairs up to the rental I would not recommend this property too any one with mobility issues.

Charming, clean, perfect New England location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything I needed. Skipped renting a car, instead walked to stores, ocean & bus lines. A perfect New England experience.

Marblehead vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Marblehead from Oct 7-11, 2015. The apartment in downtown Historic Marblehead was fantastic. Easy access to downtown, easy walk to shops, grocery store, parks. Will rent again when we return. Visited Cambridge, Harvard University, Salem. The weather was perfect. John our rental agent was very helpful, and friendly.

amazing location, comfortable, great for families

  • 5 of 5

We very much appreciated our stay at this amazingly located apartment, walking distance to restaurants, shops, beaches, etc. It was the perfect place for us and our kids--plenty of space, and a well appointed kitchen but unfussy, so we didn't worry about our young kids wrecking precious antiques. John, the owner, was very gracious and our kids loved playing with his dog, Bella, but the space is totally separate and private, for those desiring it. Parking was easy, and everything super convenient. The apartment has a few quirks (as do all old places) but it works well for a family or larger group that needs space and wants to be in the center of things.

The costal town of Marblehead, MA, is well known for its historical significance, its beautiful harbor, and of course, for the sailing! Our apartment, only steps away from the atlantic ocean, quaint and historic 'Old town', and a bustling downtown chalk-full of award winning restaurants and shopping, is perfect for everyone from families with children to couples looking for a quiet weekend getaway. Devereaux Beach or any of the yacht clubs are always a great time on a sunny day, while the shops and museums of downtown offer perfect rainy day activities. Nearby Salem is host to a number of witch-themed attractions, as well as wonderful restaurants and the Peabody Essex Museum (a personal favorite!), and the beautiful city of Boston is only a half an hour drive, or a 45 minute train ride, perfect for day tripping!
