About Christine Toomey
I am a retired RN who has dabbled in Real Estate. My Husband is semi-retired, having the winters off and that is when we like to do some traveling of our own. We both grew up on the North Shore of Boston and spent many wonderful years visiting the beaches of Cape Ann.
Christine Toomey purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Christine Toomey chose Rockport
We downsized from a colonial on 2 acres in the Newburyport area after our children were grown and now have 3 granddaughters that keep us very busy!
What makes this Apartment unique
We were fortunate to renovate and add on to a little cottage in a great part of Rockport. We like being just away from the hustle and bustle of the village, however close enough to park the car and walk most everyplace.

Quiet, Quaint and Convenient
Steps to beach, clean space, well manicured property in a quiet neighborhood filled with happy locals.
The wind is right at Windmere
The apartment was SPOTLESSLY clean and in a great location. We’ve been coming to Rockport for many years and windmere is just outside of very busy part or town and a short 10 minute stroll(maybe 13 minutes back-uphill). The yard is lovely and Christine has a designated table, umbrella and bbq for renters to use. We also had access to outdoor shower for hosing sandy feet off and beach chairs and towels provided. The small steep stairs wouldn’t be for everyone but they’re very stable and just fine for our group of 4. The layout also made it feel like there was privacy for each of the bedrooms. We would most definitely stay again
Perfect New England Getaway
Wonderful accommodations and location! Three minute walk to the beach and town. Could not ask for more gracious hosts than Chris and Dan. They thought of everything to make our stay feel too short. Can't wait to return!
Great home away from home. Christine and Dan take excellent care of this unit. We did several walks to town and stopped along the way to take in the ocean views and drove some for area sightseeing and a day at Good Harbor.
Excellent property: A great place to start your north shore adventures!
Clean & comfortable with responsive hosts. Christine was very friendly and accommodating. Access is easy and parking is great. Easy walk to Rockport harbor or very close drive to Gloucester and other nearby towns. Stairs to upper sleeping loft are steep but we were aware of this prior to our stay and it worked fine for us. Central A/C was a lifesaver during the time we were there (95F and humid!). Nice outdoor access for lounging, grilling, or showering after the beach. Enjoyed beaches (Singing, Good Harbor), a whale watch (7 Seas), and much great seafood during our stay. Would recommend without reservation!
Thanks Tim and family for your very kind review of Windmere! Glad you got to do and see so much of Rockport and Cape Ann during a very warm spell. Enjoy the rest of your summer and come back and visit us again. Regards, Christine
A perfect hone in a perfect place. Stayed as a family if four and carriage hoise has everything you coikd want to make your stay comfortable. Beautiful and tranquil garden to sit in with plenty of shade and a bbq for guest use. Christine made us very welcome and was there if we needed anything but not intrusive at all. The beach is a very short walk away and beach towel and chairs are available for your use. Overall I would recommend the carriage house to anyone wanting a very relaxing time but only a stones throw from Rockport harbour and the beaches.
Rockport is a tourist destination with many art galleries, music venue, restaurants and all forms of water sports and leisure. it is surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean and also has many quarries that are open to the public at Halibut Point State Park and elsewhere, The city of Gloucester is next door where there is a world class museum called Cape Ann Museum and also several whale watching and fishing opportunities.
