Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

House and location was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Manchester-By-The-Sea. Our Host Bo was lovely and very helpful. Hot tub did not work but maybe that was better as we may not have ever left the house! First time renting on the site - will definitely rent from here again.

Owner's Response: I Susan you were such wonderful people I was so glad to get the opportunity to meet you. Sorry you you could not stay longer, you are always welcome here. I hope and pray next time the hot tub will be fixed as I am still in the process of trying to get the parts to fix it. I think it might be time for a new one LOL thank you for your patience and understanding again you are absolutely wonderful and I look forward to meeting you again someday

Lovely neighborhood, good proximity to village and beach.

  • 4 of 5

Our hostess, Bo, (Elizabeth) was friendly and gave us privacy once we arrived, though she was not initially easy to connect with before our visit. The modern yet vintage, serviceable main floor of the home is in a lovely neighborhood with good proximity to the Manchester By the Sea village and Singing Beach. My family enjoyed meeting the resident doggies, mornings on the front porch, the village eateries, city Library and access to other Cape Ann attractions.

We would have appreciated 1. the sleeper sofa or a double bed being in the second bedroom instead of the living room for more functional privacy and 2. a more comfortable bed in the main bedroom.

We would definitely consider a return stay!

Great location, clean but bring EVERYTHING

  • 3 of 5

The location is close to the "downtown" of Manchester By The Sea and about 1 1/2 miles from the Singing beach which is wonderful, despite the frigid water. The house is clean but I have never met a stingier person than the Owner, Bo, who is otherwise quite nice. The initial tour consisted of her telling us what she does not provide: Paper towels, coffee filters, coffee, toiletries, even Toilet paper! She was kind enough to let us use her beach pass which was surprising. Oh, you will be required to make your beds because I think she was hoping we would bring our own linens. Overall, nice place to stay if you know to bring everything you could possibly need.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you see it this way. Fresh linens are provided and no, we do not make the beds as every party is differently configured. The clean sheets are placed on the end of the bed. Upon arrival I was asked for cooking oil and coffee filters. I simply do not provide these things. There was a roll of toilet paper on arrival but we do not continue to replenish it. We do however allow guests to use the washer and dryer, an 8 person hot tub and beach towels are available. Stingy is such a misused word here.

Trip back in Time - 7/3 -7/6 2017

  • 3 of 5

This small apartment is conveniently located very close to downtown and affords at a reasonable price a nice place to stay. The required amenities are there and the fans in all rooms provided just the support needed to encourage the cross-breezes needed on a hot and muggy arrival day. The recently upgraded kitchen and bath were very welcome and can't stress enough our pleasure to have a fine TV in living room and washer/dryer available as well. This place was very close to a couple of houses we lived in in the 60's; as well as our revered Memorial School and Jr/Sr High school. We enjoyed the property and our hostess was gracious to meet us and provide helpful hints on anything and everything needed. Thank you Bo!

Perfect apartment in safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for 5 weeks from January to Febuary 2017 due to work and it truly felt like home. The owner Bo was wonderful and very accomodating. The apartment is stocked with mostly anything you might need- including washer/dryer. Only recommendation would be to bring your own comforter if you are using the second bedroom off the master as well!! The neighborhood is small, quiet and very safe. It is close to any place you would like to visit. We would absolutely return again, especially in the summer months!!! Highly recommended!
