We love our town, our home and immediate neighborhood - if you are interested in having a private, fun and enjoyable week - this house is for you. It's healthy, sunny, active and a great place to relax and enjoy. Our rugs are beautiful and floors are amazing - but, we also love sandy feet. Do what you can to help maintain this great house in the excellent condition, but we also understand what it means to be comfortable. We love animals, birds and fresh roses. Our grass is organically kept green and the landscape is almost perfectly groomed. Eating on the front porch is our most favorite past time with friends and family. We're excited to share with the right family, person or group. We love our neighbors and location, you will too!
Stacey Lai purchased this house in 2004

We had a wonderful stay at this Manchester-by-the-Sea home. The house is exactly as promised - lots of space, beautiful bedrooms, everything anyone would need for a family of four (or more). We arrived to find everything immaculate. This was a "turn key" experience. What an amazing neighborhood - so quiet and cute, but very close to downtown. Singing Beach (about a mile from the house) is unbelievably beautiful - with the beach passes, beach toys, chairs and umbrella, we were ready to go! We had a few questions during our stay and the owners were immediately responsive. The weather wasn't always perfect and that didn't bother us a bit! The house is so comfortable, we were able to just relax, read and watch a movie with the kids. I would highly recommend this home to anyone with a family - it's clean, roomy, convenient and homey. Our girls are 8 and the home was just perfect for them. Manchester-by-the-Sea is a perfect alternative to the very busy Cape. It's a very nice "hometown" feeling - with easy access to a gorgeous beach and delicious restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
This is a truly wonderful home for a family stay in Manchester-by-the-Sea! The description in the listing was accurate in all respects. Everyone in our party absolutely loved staying there. The property is very child-friendly, and the 4 children in our group were thrilled to be there from the moment we arrived throughout our entire stay. The house is gorgeous, very clean and well kept and equipped, and it comfortably accommodated our party of 6 adults and 4 children. The property has a terrific, large fenced-in yard with play structures for children - all the parents in our party felt that it was just perfect. The location is fantastic - just a very short walk to the town and shopping and also a short and pleasant walk to Singing beach. It is also just a short drive from the house to Crane beach. We had great beach days at both beaches during our stay. The house is in a very nice neighborhood, peaceful and quiet, and it is located right across the street from a park. The owners provided excellent customer service - interactions were all prompt and very nice. I would absolutely recommend the property to friends and family, and we hope to stay there again. It was terrific - we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay!
Had a wonderful long weekend with our adult children. Did not spend a lot of time at the house as we were out and about the whole time (Manchester to Ipswich to Rockport to Gloucester to Ogunquit to Kennebunkport to Portsmouth ... and the grand finale of a baseball game at Fenway Park) but it was perfect for our needs.
We had a couple of issues, but Stacey resolved quickly (and the wifi issue we resolved ourselves). The house is very nice. The only thing keeping me from rating it 5 stars instead of 4 is that I think "air conditioning" in the homeaway ad is a bit misleading ...
Otherwise, top notch!
The home was lovely and fully equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Nice yard and lots of toys, bikes, etc. to make our stay with children enjoyable. Loved the convenience of walking to grocery and shops. Weather was lovely, too cold to enjoy the beach. Overall a nice family vacation.
We had a great time with our four kids. Weather was perfect, we enjoyed the ocean, had a lot of bbqs, followed the soccer world championships and played tennis. We all enjoyed the sport facilities on the other side of the street (tennis court, soccer field, playground). The house is perfectly equipped in a very nice neighborhood. Manchester is the best spot to discover Cape Ann etc., we went to Rockport, to Kittery....we would definitely come back again!
