Property description

This charming one bedroom townhouse is located in a quiet, seaside neighborhood on Rocky Neck. It has water views and boating access and is just steps away from the water. Water/small beach access is around the corner. The living room and bedroom both have a waterview. You can relax and eat outside on the pretty sun deck off the living room, with patio furniture and gas grill, flower boxes, and landscaping.

The bedroom and bathroom are upstairs (with a King-size bed or can be converted to two twin beds) and it easily sleeps two. There is a bedroom ceiling fan and AC (usually not needed) is on both floors. Sea breezes right off the Atlantic often create a lovely freshness to the place. New blinds in bedroom and bathroom add more privacy. The sleep sofa in the living dining area is full-size and can sleep one or two more.
The bathroom has just been upgraded, including a new shower surround and floor. There is a small storage closet there and a full sized closet in the bedroom.
The kitchen is amply-sized and has all the modern conveniences (please ask if you want to use a juicer or a cuisinart, but it has all the usual appliances and utensils, etc.). All large appliances are new within the last five years.
There are laundry facilities in the basement for your use.
There is private parking for your car. This is a safe and friendly area where people often don't even lock doors! If you don't bring your car, you can get around by cab, bus, water taxi or bikes (but beware of local drivers!).


Rocky Neck is a fun, festive art colony with many active music-filled restaurants and art galleries. There is a nearby theatre company. This house is on a very private street which ends at the water and so has no thru traffic.

It is a great getaway for a couple or single person to enjoy the summer in this lovely area. Gloucester and Cape Ann abound with many cultural and recreational activities, including Kayak and bike rentals in Rockport, whale watching, large sailboat cruises and many cultural activities and events from Saint Peter's Fiesta in late June to the Tall Ships Parade and Mayor's Cup Race over Labor Day.

This is available for 850-900/week, plus $50 cleaning fees, depending on dates and duration of stay.

Car: Recommended

There is a wonderful live theater company which you can walk to in 7 minutes! There is usually a water taxi to connect to Ten Pound Island and also downtown without a car. There is a Maritime Heritage Center downtown, with kid friendly exhibits including an outdoor tide pool aquarium. There is a movie theater downtown with art films and couches and you can bring your own food and wine or order in. There is so much culture and fun outdoors stuff to do here.....i could go on and on!!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I'm a physical therapist who is currently working full time. I love this area for all it's charm, natural beauty, availability of outdoor recreation, it's culture and it's quirky, artsy people! When I'm not working, I sometimes go kayaking in the ocean, take long walks on or along the beach with friends, bike or enjoy many of the cultural opportunities in the area. I look forward to giving tips to visitors on great places to go or to eat, if you'd like to know!

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
I decided to buy a vacation rental in this location because I wanted to spend time on Cape Ann, especially Rocky Neck, which is a beautiful and unique place, year round. I love to go hear the music 'on the Neck' on summer evenings or even taking a walk around Rocky Neck anytime. It's an easy trip to the water to paddle a boat or go for a swim.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Staying at this property is wonderful. As described in the listing, there are water views from the property and beautiful views all around, just steps away. You will find that the place is quiet, clean and charming and as many artists have said, the light is unique on Rocky Neck (and Cape Ann), which is why it attracts many artists. Almost any road on Rocky Neck has some kind of view of the water, so you can see great beauty from dawn to dusk and then there's the night sky....! There are lots of fun things to do just an easy walk away from the property on Rocky Neck in the summer, as it's still a flourishing 'art colony'. You will enjoy taking walks to several beaches, from here. It's just great!
