About Rafal

We are a young international (Polish - Venezuela) couple passionate about traveling and hosting travelers. Architecture is one of our passions and missions in life, that's where we dedicate more of our days. We love to travel and will keep doing it at anytime possible for the rest of our lives.

Our favorite destinations are usually close to the ocean or mountains. We like almost everything but dream about going to Australia, Hawaii and Fiji anytime soon.

5 things we can't live without: air, water, food, love and peace of mind.

As a guest we are very respectful, super clean, quiet, friendly and responsible. We take excellent care of any place we visit as we expect and hope any guest we host take care of our place as well ;-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jesica & Rafal ;-)



Thank you for preparing the cozy and clean house for me and my family reunion! Everyone enjoyed their stay very much and my grandmother kept saying this is "Number 1"! Thank you so much and I hope this house will be the destination for many more future family reunions and happy memories!!!



Best,

Cheryl



P.S: Please check out 'CK Pearl' in Essex. Their tomato soup, rack of lamb and ribs were amazing! Grandfather devoured the hanger steak.

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.

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Well positioned property, with adequate facilities. Lovely setting close to some beautiful beaches and lovely small picturesque towns. The property was clean and well presented. the arrival arrangements worked very well and the hosts were friendly and easily contacted.

For a family house it lacked one or two desirable extras, washing machine and microwave, which was a shame as it was otherwise perfect for a family vacation.

Thank You

David and Victoria

Great place to stay in a gorgeous neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous time in a great place. The home was spacious and very clean. The neighborhood is beautiful and the location is close to everyday needs. The owners were great and and did offer to help us in any way possible. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone. We enjoyed "Georges" and Sugar Magnolia for breakfast and the Cruise Port Grill for dinner. We are able to park 2 vehicles in the driveway with no problem

Pile on the floor all used sheets and pillow cases (not duvets) + towels. Please rinse the sand off before entering the house and make sure you all your party read the short term rental agreement. Respect the neighbor's privacy and quiet time. That's about it.
