Offering 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and enough sleeping accommodations for 12 guests throughout 2,500 square feet of beautifully appointed living space, this wonderful residence is the perfect size for families or a group of friends out for a rejuvenating beach getaway. The moment you first arrive, you’ll immediately fall in love with the home’s striking open-floor interior, featuring panoramic views of Wingaersheek Beach, the iconic Annisquam Yacht Club, and the beautiful Annisquam and Jones River and marshes. Contemporary decor, unique fixtures, and pops of color make the space very modern, while maintaining an inviting, family friendly vibe. 

Look forward to spending your vacation mornings sipping a hot cup of coffee by the cozy wood burning fireplace, as you admire sweeping views. Expansive windows throughout the home allow you to enjoy the stunning scenery from each room, while living room skylights open and close to let in plenty of natural light. After a pleasant day on the beach, come home and prepare delicious meals in the brand new kitchen, complete with 2 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators, double oven, top-of-the-line Bosch appliances, filtered water, and an ice maker. Later, unwind in the spacious living room, where you can watch your favorite movies on the flat screen TV, while the children can have their own space downstairs for gaming and hanging out. You won’t find it hard to stay entertained here, as the house features 2 additional TVs and is wired inside and out with Sonos music system and surround sound. When you’re ready to call it a night, retire to one of the lovely bedrooms, where you'll sleep easy with plush sleeping accommodations and air conditioning. For your convenience, a top-of-the-line Electrolux washer and dryer is provided in the separate laundry room. 

Experience the best of outdoor living in the home’s stunning exterior space.  Overlooking the beautiful Annisquam River and Yacht Club, the wrap-around deck will quickly become your favorite place to relax and socialize with your companions. Spend your evenings barbecuing on the gas grill, while admiring peaceful sunsets and ever changing tides as boasts sail up and down the river past the Yacht Club. When you return from the beach, rinse the sand off in the outdoor showers before retreating indoors to settle down for the day. It doesn’t get much better than this! 

You can’t beat this home’s phenomenal location. From here, you’ll be a short 350 yard walk away from pristine public and private beaches, where you can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing and swimming. Should you find yourself on land, Gloucester offers great restaurants and quaint boutiques.

Overpriced house in disrepair

  • 1 of 5

Three quiet writers rented this house in Gloucester for 5 days -- looking for a peaceful setting to complete our deadlines. Upon check in on Sunday afternoon, we instantly saw that the house was not as advertised: a big water stain on the wood floor downstairs (perhaps from the shower) was the first clue, as was a ceiling light in the laundry room hanging with wires showing. Much more upstairs: missing rugs, a dirty and torn sectional sofa and cheap IKEA chairs in the living room instead of comfortable swivel chairs shown in all the pictures; big wood dining room table with a broken leg, loose kitchen sink faucet with no working sprayer, light fixture switches taped over that didn't work, and -- most worrisome of all -- a sound coming from the oven which turned out to be the fan that would not shut off. We texted the owners who answered a few hours later: they were sorry we were disappointed, blamed everything on previous disastrous renters, and the next day, after several more texts about the condition of the house and the fact that we were going to have to lose time to a repairman for the oven, they offered us two free days. We were not able to extend our stay, nor did we want to, given the house -- and finally owners agreed to give us a partial refund (they dropped off a check and two bottles of wine -- we appreciated the gesture and thanked them). Still not cheap and still missing many of the normal basic amenities for such a rental including: dish soap, shower soap, dish towels, small plates, napkins, working appliances -- including no vent over the stove, which seems illegal, etc. If they'd had renters who had damaged the house, they should have told us in advance of our stay and given us the option of canceling. Certainly they should have alerted us to the oven -- which, after repairman's visit, didn't work at all for the remainder of our stay.

Worst and strangest part was check-out day when owners started dropping off rugs and living room chairs outside before our 11 a.m check out time, then sat in their car waiting for us to leave -- didn't speak to us and barely answered when we spoke to them. We left the property at 11 on the dot with them staring at us from their car. Bizarre and hostile behavior. Shocked by positive comments. Took photos to document.

beautiful views and a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to gather people together and spend some time in a house with a beautiful location and ALL the comforts of home! Clean and well stocked with everything you need for a perfect stay. Bright, airy and roomy, the house comfortably hosted six adults and accommodated 10 people total during the day. The Hostess was very easy to communicate with, very responsive and went out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly.

Beautiful home, big windows to see the amazing views, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights to toast in the new year.

The house was very open, great kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds. Wingaersheek Beach was an easy walk from the house.

Gloucester has a lot to offer, beautiful beaches, friendly people, quaint downtown, good places to eat.

Our first day we took a food tour and enjoyed some of the local foods and learned about the history of Gloucester.

On day two we had a tour of the Ryan and Wood distillery and walked around Rockport.

In the evening we had a great time cooking, talking, playing games and watching the ball drop in Times Square.

Monica and Steve, thanks for making our NYE so memorable. We look forward to our next visit.

Fantastic Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year renting this home and we loved it just as much as we did last year. It's the perfect set up for us. The home has everything you need and it's beautifully decorated to top it off. We plan to be back again.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We hosted Thanksgiving for our immediate family and in laws and our stay was perfect. The space was cozy, comfortable, and stylish. It was the perfect mix of open spaces to spend time as a group with quiet nooks for privacy, reading and relaxation. The house was outfitted with everything we could have needed or wanted to cook. The views were absolutely beautiful and everyone enjoyed waking up to them. Access to the beach was convenient and a lovely walk. We had a memorable stay here and would come back in a heartbeat.
