We loved our stay at this beautiful beach house. It was perfect for our family of 15. The beautiful beach is very close. It was an easy drive to Boston. We loved Gloucester's restaurants, scenic beauty and friendly people. We would chose this location again. The owner was very easy to work with and made our stay excellent in every way.
Eleven members of our family (ages 9 months to 69 years, from Minnesota, New York and Pennsylvania) gathered to celebrate a graduation from Gordon College. The house was perfect in every way: tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and beds, we felt at home immediately. The views are amazing! We loved being able to eat meals together both inside, and on the deck. There are many lovely conversation areas to enjoy morning coffee or evening wine. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality cooking/serving items needed for meals. The owners have thought of everything to make a vacation stay relaxing and pleasant. (Here's a tip for future renters: we took great family photos on the beautiful staircase.) The views from the house are amazing! How fun to just walk a short way to watch surfers on Long Beach. We enjoyed whale watching, Cape Ann lighthouse cruise, Hammond Castle, Halibut State Park, a sunset over Plum Cove, shopping and dining in Gloucester and Rockport, and day trips to Boston. This rental is ideal for making memories for a lifetime. From the time we first talked on the phone to Pete in October until we walked through the door, we were all pleased with how accommodating, helpful and welcoming he was. He responds to emails very quickly.
This property is an absolute gem located near Long Beach in Gloucester. We rented this property for a family gathering with family coming in from out of state. There were people renting the house who had left in the morning and when we arrived it was like nobody had been there. The property was absolutely spotless upon our entrance and the nautical decor found throughout the house is beautiful. Every room was equipped with clean sheets, pillows, etc. There were even extra blankets in each room in the house. The kitchen had every appliance we could ask for and even the small details such as coffee filters that we had forgotten! Any kitchen necessity you could think of, they had. It also had a grill for us to cook in and beach chairs to take down to the beach during the day! The property owner was available to us by phone or text throughout our stay. There is a binder set up for renters upon arrival to review the property rules which was very convenient. It helped explain to us how little details such as trash needed to be collected. We had a few questions the night before we were leaving and he was able to provide an immediate response. I would recommend this property to any large groups who are looking to stay under one roof. This house provided everything we needed to keep all of the family members, including kids, entertained throughout the long weekend. The surrounding Rockport and Gloucester areas are a treat for any visitor to visit. Tiny shops and restaurants dot the area as well as numerous beaches and activities.. This place has it all!
Of all the places we have rented in the past this house had absolutely everything we needed and more! It was spotlessly clean with extra linens etc. There was more than enough room for the extended family spread out both indoors and outdoors. The 2 minute walk to a gorgeous beach was the clincher for me! We will be back next year!!
I can not say enough about the home and the owner. Pete was so easy to work with and always responsive. The house, WOW! The proximity to the beach is incredible. We arrived on a Friday and everything was perfect. Our daughter was married in Gloucester on Saturday and then Sunday through Friday was pure relaxation. We had many family members stay with us from all over the country. It was the perfect place to spend time together, whether on the beach, in the backyard or just sitting around the kitchen/living room. We were able to grill out several nights on the gas grill for dinner and then walk to the local Ice Cream shop! If you have a large group, this is the house for you!
Fantastic set-up--very large house with 3 levels of living and a nice back yard and deck. We had a family reunion there, with sleeping accommodations for everyone. The house is beautifully furnished & decorated as well as very comfortable. Highly recommend. Pete was accommodating and always communicated promptly.
Our 3 generation family of 13 ranging in age from 3 months to 72 years and coming from Boston, Northampton, Reno and Dublin had an awesome week here. The beach was perfect for our six little ones all under the age of 7, as well as for the adults. The house was so comfortable and so well supplied, that we felt like we were home. Our mid week confusion about rubbish disposal brought Pete and Tracy over that evening, not only to take care of it, but also resulted in another basket of beach toys being discovered. We would totally recommend renting from Pete and Tracy and would do so again in a heartbeat if we were to vacation again in Gloucester. The Townsend/Fitzpatrick/Maheu Family.
Our large group that included 3 families had a great time at this home. The home was spacious and clean. Had everything to offer. The backyard and back porch area is quite comfortable and a great hangout for a backyard barbecue and happy hour !!!! Pete was great ---
We celebrated our son's wedding on Cape Ann September 23, 2017. The location is just a short walk to the ocean for a lovely walk on the beach. The spacious house is beautiful inside with 3 bathrooms to accommodate us all on the big day! The groomsmen had lovely pix taken outside to the sound of waves crashing. Convenient location to everything. Thanks Pete!
House is great. Lots of spaces to relax and gather. We go with girlfriends every year and have been searching for the perfect house and finally found it
The house is beautiful in a wonderful location. It is an easy drive to Gloucester or Rockport and you can see Long Beach from the house. Pete was extremely easy to work with. We had people from 5 different states and no one had a complaint. One of the family members liked the mattress in her room so much that she went home and ordered the exact same model!
