Rockport condo description
Steps to beaches & town! Gorgeous Rockport Victorian Villa complete First Floor two-bedroom Condominium PLUS one-bedroom ground level Garden Suite! You can't beat this deal!
Nestled in the heart of downtown Rockport, this fully renovated historic Cape Ann Victorian Manse was originally built in 1865. The house is a two-minute walk to downtown shops, art galleries, and restaurants, and a three-minute walk to larger Rockport beaches.
Victorian Villa's First Floor Condo sleeps six, and includes a beautiful Master Suite, with down-comforter Queen Bed, antique furnishings, air conditioning. The French doors open onto a lovely, flower-covered deck overlooking the lush back yard, and the small stream running along the back of the property. Ensuite to the Master Bedroom is a bright bathroom (shower only, no tub). This bathroom also has access from the central hallway.
The First Floor Guest Room provides a down-comforter Double/Full bed, beautiful antique furnishings, a handsome desk surrounded by light-filled windows, and two floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. Adjacent to the Guest Room is a well-appointed half bath.
The focal point of the First Floor Condo is the beautiful gourmet kitchen; with double oven, gas cook top stove, microwave, and all the amenities any cook could want, or need. Eat-in casually at the granite counter, or enjoy formal dining in the adjacent dining room. The bright, gorgeous, living room, with working gas fireplace, has a pull out Queen Sleeper bed. The French doors off the living room open onto the beautiful deck, which overlooks the backyard below.
The Garden Suite is situated directly below the First Floor Condo and may be accessed via the interior staircase, or separate exterior entrance. Garden Suite sleeps 2-4, with a double bed, a Queen Bed sofa, four-person table for dining or games/puzzles, TV, and CD Player. There is a half-bath on the same level; via the laundry room. The Garden Studio is situated at the rear of the home, with windows looking out onto the beautiful back yard. It is quiet, and remains very cool during summer months; no air conditioning is required.
Victorian Villa amenities include: 1 bath with shower and 2 half baths, wireless internet, two air conditioners, cable televisions, DVD players, stereos/CD players, two extensive libraries, full-size washer and dryer, patio furniture, and a charcoal grill in the yard. All kitchenware, dishes, and linens are included.
Two (tandem) off-street parking spaces are provided. Space is also available on the surrounding streets. The house is one block from the local library, the Post Office, with a convenience store and dry cleaner on the corner.

Wonderful family get together
Wonderful family get together
My family had a wonderful time at this lovely home where Deborah has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We had guests come and go and there was plenty of room for all and everyone loved the home. Deborah was lovely to deal with and a most gracious host. The place was spotless and furnished with everything you need. The deck was where we spent all the time, overlooking the nice yard and bubbling brook when we were at the house,but could not stay away from the town. Being able to walk to town and the beach was just wonderful. Perfect location.

Perfect for Families!
Perfect for Families!
Two families shared this space for a week, and the house met our needs in a beautiful way! Two bedrooms on the main floor were used for adults (plus baby in pack 'n play and toddler on master bedroom couch!), and the lower level was perfect for all the kids! The lower level includes the walk-out garden room (we made it the boys' zone!), PLUS another separate area with bed with access to half-bath (our lone girl claimed that space!)! This beautiful victorian boasts high ceilings, beautiful wood floors, and the walls and surfaces are tastefully decorated with fabulous art and sculptures. A truly lovely and comfortable home. The adults also appreciated the roomy dining room and well-equipped kitchen, and the kids loved having access to the deck and backyard and enjoyed playing by the stream that flows through it, and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. We all valued the close proximity to everything in town and walked every day! All-in-all, we made lots of wonderful memories and had a fantastic time in lovely Rockport. Thank you, Deborah, for sharing your home with us!

Very Comfortable & Spacious, Great Location

My husband and I rented this wonderful condo from Sept-Dec 2012 and were very happy about our choice to do so. The condo includes the first floor of the house as well as a finished basement, and is very spacious (great for entertaining). There is also a sizable deck that can be accessed from either the living room or the master bedroom. The kitchen truly is wonderful to cook in, with double ovens, a gas stove, and quite a few appliances at our fingertips. Comfortable furnishings and all sorts of interesting artwork fill the house. The owner, Deborah, has clearly made every effort to make this a wonderful place to stay. We slept in the master bedroom and the bed is very comfortable (even the sheets are wonderful!). I really can't think of a single thing that was less than great about this house. The house is very well located: about a block from the downtown shops (two blocks from the start of Bearskin Neck), 2 blocks from the beach, and just an 11 minute walk to the train that takes you right into Boston (I used the train quite a bit while living in Rockport and found it to be fairly convenient). Deborah made everything about our stay really easy and enjoyable. My husband and I moved from Germany and stayed at this house for a few months while looking for a permanent house in the area. Deborah did so many things to make our arrival easier for us, and then during our stay she responded immediately to any requests we had. She's really a pleasure to rent from. Although we rented this condo in the fall/winter, I can see it would be a wonderful place to be in the summer. Rockport is an adorable coastal town.
