Gloucester apartment description

This delightful ground floor apartment offers 2 bedrooms (1 queen, twins), 1 bath and a large open plan living room, dining area, and kitchen. Walk out your sliding glass door to a private patio and rocks to the ocean with a breathtaking, south facing view of the Atlantic Ocean and of Salt Island to which you can walk at low tide on a sandbar from Good Harbor Beach. Enjoy the sparkling water and lapping waves. It is a very short walk to beautiful Good Harbor Beach, as well as to a restaurant, a sandwich shop and an ice cream store. Take a short drive to a large supermarket and a drug store. It's about 2 miles to the many marine activities, the restaurants, the working harbor and downtown Gloucester and to the train to Boston. Telephone, cable TV, CD/Radio, microwave, outdoor barbecue and shower, parking for 2 cars. Friendly owners live upstairs. Unsuitable for children under 10. No smoking or pets.

We are new to Home Away though we have been renting our apartment for 30 years with periodic updating and have had many return guests. After your stay, we encourage you to submit a review.
