Is the best word to describe our experience. Fantastic house for a family vacation or long term stay. We sincerely enjoyed our time there and Robin was wonderful to deal with - responsive, accommodative and gracious. Looking forward to next year!

Best family vacation we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing in Manchester by the Sea for several years after falling in love with the town. But this was by far the best vacation we've had, largely due to how wonderful this home was to stay in for the week. Robyn has clearly invested a lot of time and thoughtful effort into making this rental look and feel like a well cared for home away from home. Everything is updated top to bottom, so you get an authentic seaside vacation home experience, with all the comforts and convenience of what feels like a a full time home. The location is fantastic - right between Singing Beach and Captain Dusty's / Masconomo Park, only a half mile in either direction. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful in its own right. We can't wait to come back next year!

I rented this house for one week to spend time with family. The house far exceeded my expectations and Robin and Gary were wonderful. The location and property are awesome. The kids loved playing ball in the big front yard. It was a quick walk to town and to the beach. The house was clean and comfortable. Steam shower was a bonus. The white marble in the bathrooms was beautiful. We would reccomend this house highly and feel very thankful we were able to stay here.

Michigan Family Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Gary and Robin's home for a week during our yearly family vacation over the Spring Break period. Although there was still plently of snow in the yard (nothing they could do about that due to a record Winter snowfall) we all had a very pleasant stay. The home is very clean and well appointed with updated furnishings and appliances and offered plenty of room for our family to spread out. The town of Manchester-By-The-Sea is a beautiful area with lots of things to see and do in the surrounding Cape Ann area. The commuter train was close by and offered quick trips into Boston, which we rode often as well. We would chose this home again if we ever return to this area and would most likely come back at a time when we could see some grass and sit out on the enclosed porch.

Highly recommended from Michigan.

This is the perfect vacation rental - even in the off season. Open, spacious, sun filled rooms, walk to the beach...I could go on and on re: how happy this home made my stay. The owners are the most gracious and kind renters I have ever encountered. The cost is more than reasonable - actually felt we did not pay enough for all we received - so this place is a steal. Nice quiet residential neighborhood and downtown Manchester-by-the-Sea is just a 5 min. walk away to shops/restaurants/groceries.
