About Ivan

I was born in Europe and grew up in New York City. Now I am a musician and a professor in Boston.

Ivan purchased this house in 2008

Why Ivan chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

My oceanfront, artsy one bedroom house on 2 levels is a true hideaway. It's located completely off the street, only 12 miles from Boston. Enjoy the views, chef's kitchen, the outdoor spa and indoor Jacuzzi, fireplace and more. The house is comfortable, secluded and romantic; perfect for a couple seeking a quiet, private retreat.

What makes this house unique

Ocean views from every window!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Ivan! It was our first Christmas away from family - had a splendid time. Loved the big kitchen, beautiful decks, hot tub, jacuzzi, and of course the phenomenal views. What a relaxing, refreshing and romantic Christmas.

Happy New Year!

Amazing homey retreat with ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely perfect, and the owner thoughtfully keeps the kitchen equipped and stocked with condiments, cooking oil, etc., making it easy to eat in. The hot tub has amazing views, or there is a great bathtub upstairs. The fireplace was especially welcome with the March cold snap. The views from the living and bedrooms are spectacular. The owner stopped by to tell us about a minor issue and make himself available, but was not at all intrusive. We will definitely come back!

Nice Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have the life rhythm of taking a few days in January to reconnect, relax, and talk about the coming year. Oftentimes, we do this local to our home in Greater Boston. This property looked like it had great potential. And... it was just what we needed.

PLEASING POINTS:

Great view...

Whirlpool Tub in the Bathroom (unexpected)

WiFi - I needed to do a little work.

Responsive owner - when I had a very minor issue, he responded ASAP.

Kitchen supplied adequately so we didn't have to run out.

When the owner discovered that my wife had left a small item behind, he made arrangements to have it returned to us.

OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE:

There are some areas that could use some attention arouind the property (deck; clutter) but it didn't deter from our enjoyment

Hot tub was slow to heat up, had trouble holding it's temperature, and really needed more water. None of this stopped our enjoying it but it could be a greater strength of the experience.

All-in-All... a very pleasant experience... we would and will return again.

Beautiful place with breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

The property is hidden so very cozy and private. The house itself is big and very accommodating with a large hot tub for two in the bathroom and a private jacuzzi outside perfect for stargazing at night. The working fireplace definitely makes everything more romantic. The dining room and the breakfast nook are just perfect, the kitchen has brand new appliances and everything you need to spend your vacation there. Loved my stay and I'll be sure to come back and also tell my friends and family to book their stay too.
