As you continue only a short distance you will turn into the private area of Gloucester’s section of Long Beach. After a few short turns you will arrive to the house, and you will immediately feel like you are on vacation and ready to enjoy your stay.

We celebrated our son's wedding on Cape Ann September 23, 2017. The location is just a short walk to the ocean for a lovely walk on the beach.

The spacious house is beautiful inside with 3 bathrooms to accommodate us all on the big day! The groomsmen had lovely pix taken outside to the sound of waves crashing. Convenient location to everything. Thanks Pete!

Awesome home -- Awesome beach

  • 5 of 5

Our large group that included 3 families had a great time at this home. The home was spacious and clean. Had everything to offer.

The backyard and back porch area is quite comfortable and a great hangout for a backyard barbecue and happy hour !!!!

Pete was great ---

All that was promised and more...

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family of 13 ranging in age from 3 months to 72 years and coming from Boston, Northampton, Reno and Dublin had an awesome week here. The beach was perfect for our six little ones all under the age of 7, as well as for the adults. The house was so comfortable and so well supplied, that we felt like we were home. Our mid week confusion about rubbish disposal brought Pete and Tracy over that evening, not only to take care of it, but also resulted in another basket of beach toys being discovered. We would totally recommend renting from Pete and Tracy and would do so again in a heartbeat if we were to vacation again in Gloucester. The Townsend/Fitzpatrick/Maheu Family.

Great & large house just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic set-up--very large house with 3 levels of living and a nice back yard and deck.

We had a family reunion there, with sleeping accommodations for everyone. The house is beautifully furnished & decorated as well as very comfortable. Highly recommend. Pete was accommodating and always communicated promptly.

Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about the home and the owner. Pete was so easy to work with and always responsive. The house, WOW! The proximity to the beach is incredible. We arrived on a Friday and everything was perfect. Our daughter was married in Gloucester on Saturday and then Sunday through Friday was pure relaxation. We had many family members stay with us from all over the country. It was the perfect place to spend time together, whether on the beach, in the backyard or just sitting around the kitchen/living room. We were able to grill out several nights on the gas grill for dinner and then walk to the local Ice Cream shop! If you have a large group, this is the house for you!

Fabulous place for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have rented in the past this house had absolutely everything we needed and more! It was spotlessly clean with extra linens etc. There was more than enough room for the extended family spread out both indoors and outdoors. The 2 minute walk to a gorgeous beach was the clincher for me!

We will be back next year!!
