A fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Cape Ann. The house was very clean, updated and comfortable. The view from the deck is beautiful - great for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. I would highly recommend this home. The check in and check out process was very smooth. Thanks for making our time in New England memorable.

Lovely leafy Massachusetts

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Magnolia. It has good links to Boston and the Cape Ann headland is lovely. The house is bright and spacious, with the hosts - Rafal and Jesica - available throughout in case of any issues (we didn't have any).

This is a lovely home and neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 wonderful months in this clean and modern home. It is well situated near the ocean and generally cooled by the ocean breeezes. Gloucester is a great area with many interesting things to see and do-- only a two minute drive to the Stage Fort Park beaches and frequent events.

The owners, Jesica and Rafal, are a nice young couple and were very accommodating; they added some items we thought could make things even more comfortable. We will be renting here again.

spacious, light-filled relaxation

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house for a family or small group. The house is newly fitted out, spacious and uncluttered, with several living areas to relax in. The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. Everything was as described in the listing, and Jesica and Raphael were quick to respond to communications. Check in was a breeze, and I would happily recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the Gloucester area.
