Charming studio apartment in an antique colonial home with an antique/gift shop on site. Why rent a hotel/motel room? This beautiful studio is a unique alternative. The apartment is located within walking distance to the North Shore Art Association, Rocky Neck Art Colony (the oldest working art colony in America), wonderful restaurants, beaches, and shopping. Private parking for 1-2 vehicles.
Main living space: The main living space is a bright, sunny large room with hardwood floors, a full size/double bed, kitchen set and seating area. We provide great comfy linens and quilts, and an extra cot can be provided if needed. The kitchen is small but fully equipped with a large refrigerator/freezer, small gas stove, breakfast bar, and everything needed to boil a lobster!
The bathroom has a full soaking tub with shower and beautiful floor to ceiling ceramic tile.
Patio: There is also a terrific outdoor private patio with wrought iron furniture. We also supply a small barbeque grill with everything needed for a great cookout.
The apartment is very comfortable for one or two people (I was there alone), and tastefully decorated (you can tell the owner is an artist and runs a gift shop) - as shown in the pictures. It's well maintained, clean, and secure - and set in a very safe neighborhood. I enjoyed walking down the street to the harbor, the art colony, or a bit further .to the seashore and beach. It was also within easy driving range of Salem and Rockport, and an easy train ride to Boston.
Communication was solid and timely as I arranged for the reservation and as the arrival date came near. Check in was efficient and personable, and check out was very easy. I was provided my own parking spot.
Joan, the owner, lives upstairs and is readily available to address any needs that might have popped up. She's also a wonderful person and I very much enjoyed getting to know her.
What a great studio apartment. Close to downtown, Rocky Neck and Good Harbor Beach. This apartment has it all. A must stay.
My husband and I stayed here for a few nights for our honeymoon and loved it! It was so cozy and perfect for the two of us. Joan was so great and made sure we had everything we would need. I would absolutely love to go back and I would highly recommend staying here :)
Joan is a warm, friendly and welcoming host, responded quickly to our emails and was accommodating with our later arrival. She made sure to include everything you might need for a pleasant stay. The place was quiet, spotless, charmingly furnished, and had all the little conveniences, and then some! She thought of everything. An ideal place to stay for a single or couple. The little courtyard was a pleasant sanctuary to sit and eat in the shade. Easy to find, and located a 5 min drive from everything - close enough to be convenient, but far away enough to be quiet. Weather was great so we didn't avail ourselves of the books, games, CDs or DVDs, of which she has a fun selection to choose from. We will be back!
Very happy with our stay at this solid studio apartment this summer. Kitchen, bath and AC in good working order. Apartment was quaint and nice. Location was excellent and the area even nicer than we had expected, especially the beaches. Our host was fantastic and very responsive and helpful when called upon.
My husband and I came out for a fall-time wedding in mid-October and we're SOOO glad we decided to stay at this quaint little studio apartment. We prefer to stay at vacation rentals when we can as opposed to hotels so we can plan our own meals and get a "true" feel for the area we're visiting.
The studio had everything we needed for our 4 night stay... wi-fi, well stocked kitchen, bathroom with ample hot water, T.V. (with dvd's and vhs tapes), games and more. The studio was very quiet (we slept well), and the owner is very kind offering an abundance of warmth, and hospitality.
If we ever venture back to the area we would definitely stay here again. We couldn't have been happier with our decision!
