We are new to Home Away though we have been renting our apartment for 30 years with periodic updating and have had many return guests. After your stay, we encourage you to submit a review.
My girlfriends and I spent an amazing week at this beautiful vacation rental. The view was specatular, the accommodations very comfortable and the location to the beach and shopping was perfect. We have been coming to Gloucester for many years and this was one of the best places we have ever stayed! The owners were wonderful! Added bonus, a outdoor shower....
Turn your phones off, and turn on that out-of-office auto reply on your email !!! This place is a truly spectacular New England get-a-way. Property is beautiful and owners are exceptionally accommodating. A perfect place to unwind and enjoy your morning coffee and afternoon cocktails right on the water. Miles of beautiful beach access and plenty on activities near by. We will be returning next year.
Our family of four (two teens and two adults) had a truly wonderful week in this apartment. It is comfortable and well-maintained with gorgeous views over the water from the kitchen and sitting room, even better from the terrace! The breezes were incredible, and the sound of the waves through the night restorative.
Good Harbor Beach, a lovely sandy beach with surf, is minutes away by foot. We had everything we needed, including beach chairs and towels, and did most of our cooking right on the spot, making this both a gorgeous and affordable getaway. Local restaurants and a wonderful whale-watching adventure rounded out the experience.
The owners are friendly and readily accessible. We will be back!
We had a wonderful week on the ocean with perfect weather. The accommodations were clean and comfortable plus you not ask for more gracious hosts in John and Colette. This is our second time staying and we will certainly try to come again. The ocean views are stunning, breeze at night is great and you are a short walk from good harbor beach. Its a perfect, restful get-a-way!
Our family stayed here for a week and loved every minute; more people need to consider going north in the summer! The weather was great and as you step out on the back patio you are taken away to another place by the crashing surf and blue skies. It was wonderful to listen to the seagulls and we enjoyed watching the boats and ships coming and going. The apartment was big enough should you have inclement weather. We never felt cramped, and John was always available to answer questions about local fishing, restaurants, etc... This unit is within minutes of downtown shopping and restaurants and very close to Rockport, Mass (plenty of artwork and jewelry to buy and see) We feel like new people coming back to daily life; Thanks so much.
The house was wonderful, quiet - except for the sound of the water. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio and watched the ocean birds everyday. Everything was clean and well laid out. We were just a short drive to downtown and a brief walk to the swimming beach.
Our hosts were also terrific. This was the ideal place to spend our 35th anniversary. I hope you all get a chance to enjoy this beautiful place.
We are in the Brier Neck neighborhood of lovely historical Cape Ann (30 miles north of Boston), the perfect summer vacation destination offering an incredible array of activities including sport fishing, whale watching, biking, hiking, and surfing, and birdwatching to name a few. Enjoy music festivals and live theater including shows at the new Shalin Liu Performance Center, Take in the various art and historical museums and the maritime museums, the Rocky Neck Art Colony, historic homes and antiques shops. Drive the scenic rocky coastline to see breathtaking ocean views and beautiful beaches. Dine on delicious fresh seafood and ethnic cuisine in fine restaurants and casual seaside atmospheres. Visit historic sites such as Hammond Castle, any of 6 lighthouses or the granite quarries from days of old. Perhaps you will love sunbathing, swimming or walking on the most beautiful beaches, especially Good Harbor Beach with its fine white sand which is just a short walk down the street.
