The view is even more amazing in person. The home is cozy, roomy and well laid out.Equipped with all the necessary items and well maintained.The owner was very hospitable and helpful.We highly recommend this property and would love to rent again next summer. So much to do in Cape Ann but our favorite was just relaxing on the porch with the changing tides and view.Thank you Miren

Awesome property and location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place on the water with boat access and this location was perfect. The house is an open concept with plenty of windows facing the water. The deck was very large and at night you looked at a beautiful sunset. Parking was easy with garage access. Bedrooms were large and nicely done. We faced Wingaersheek beach and could kayak or boat right to the beach in minutes. Looking forward to going back next year.

Best Vacation Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for over two weeks and NEVER had a bad day. House was immaculate and had a gorgeous view out of any window. Made my wife and I feel like we were millionaires. We originally booked it for a place to stay for our daughter's wedding but extended it for a week longer because it was SOOOOO beautiful. Enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the kayaking and clamming during low tide. Great neighbors on both sides. Owner is MORE than accommodating. Would definitely do it all again. Our dog especially enjoyed ALL the smells of the ocean.

Awesome location and place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fabulous time at this house in Gloucester. We enjoyed the gorgeous water views from all angles in the home as well as the beautiful sunsets. The Cape Anne area is breathtaking...it felt really authentic without the usual tourist trappings.

The owner was nice enough to let us bring our dog who mostly just wanted to lay in the sun on the deck.

We'd recommend this home to anyone. There are charming shops and restaurants nearby. The city of Gloucester is wonderful and just exploring the north shore down to Salem and up to Newburyport is relaxing and worth exploring.
