Overview

Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

Sun when you want it. Shade when you need it. Cool Cove is a beach house that has it all. Jutting high above Wingaersheek Beach on a promontory from which it seems that you can see forever: Annisquam Lighthouse, Ipswich Bay, azure waters, pleasure boats, and sandbars.

Walk from this four bedroom vacation home, across a verdant lawn edged with Rosa Rugosa down an easy path to a small private beach where you can swim, kayak or just dip your toes into the salt water pools. Inside, a lovely shaded house awaits you. There is a large, sunken living/dining room with expansive views. An upper living room opens to wraparound deck and the friendly kitchen has a breakfast bar.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, walk-in closet and sliding doors to the lawn. Another full bath and laundry are also on this level. Upstairs there is a full bath and two large bedrooms each with dramatic views. The 3rd floor has two rooms one with twin beds and the other with a king bed (walk through one to get to the next). Perfect for children! So come for your family vacation and stay on the beach at Cool Cove. For the full waterfront experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second time staying at Cool Cove, and it was as beautiful as ever, the house is very comfortable and the beach and views beyond compare. One thing there was no pot large enough to boil lobsters or corn in, so I had to go out and buy one, other than that everything great.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was lovely with large rooms, wonderful views, plenty of nice furniture, wonderful large deck (tho not much shade), a few fans, well stocked for the most part. Plenty of deck and beach chairs & toys. Access to the beach was perfect, and it was an ideal beach for safety of small children. The tides pools and sand bars at low tide made for fun explorations and walks. While it was nice that one bedroom on the main floor had AC, it also happened to be the coolest room in the house wo the AC. It was very helpful to have shades from the intense sun, but there were no shades in the dining area, making it hard to keep the heat out of the house (particularly a problem on really hot days). Also no shades on the 3rd floor in the windows facing the beach, so the sun would shine right in the eyes of the sleepers in the AM, and heat up the rooms. There really need to be shades in both areas. The kitchen ceiling fan did not work and there were several burned out light bulbs, with no replacements in the right size. Not really worth bothering the management company during our stay. Response to the problem we did need to have resolved was good. More kitchen drawers in place of the (non-working, it appeared) trash compactor would be good. Wonderful to have a cool garage for cars and outdoor toys.

Our family spent a lovely week at Cool Cove. The house is great, spacious with lots of windows and gorgeous views. The deck is huge and perfect for enjoying the vista of the harbor and beach. Its the perfect beach for young children, safe, no waves, low tide provides sand bars galore.

Incredible location....great house. They could use A/C in more than just the master BR...does get hot and muggy all summer. Second time I've gone through AVH and they are very professional and responsive....highly recommend them.
