Gloucester condo description
This is a house “in back,” which provides amazing privacy, but with quick access to town, Rt. 128 and the beaches. Off street parking for 2 cars. Three breakfast restaurants within easy walking distance. Good Harbor Beach is a 10 minute walk, or a quick drop-off/walk back to save beach parking fees. Downtown Gloucester is walkable - about 10 minutes. Two minute walk to 7/11 convenience store, 5 minute walk (short 1 min. drive) to Stop and Shop and CVS with Redbox. Less than a mile to Rocky Neck, the country’s oldest art colony.
This two bedroom condo is a delight. Though it’s an older house, it was “flipped” 6 years ago, so everything in the condo is brand new. The living room has a large dining room table that seats 6 comfortably, large leather sofa and leather king’s chair, 42” flat-screen TV, DVD and stereo surround sound.
The kitchen is a well equipped galley style with refrigerator, New Wave oven, microwave, toaster oven and gas stove.
Both the master bedroom and guest room have full sized beds.
One of the nicest features of this condo is the large deck with patio furniture and a barbeque grill and smoker located right off the living room that overlooks our quiet little neighborhood and my perennial garden. We spend a lot of time out here in the warm weather. It is shaded nicely by large silver oaks in the afternoon, giving an 'up in the canopy' feeling, and gets a beautiful ocean breeze from the south. Mondello Square is a dead-end street, and our house is located off the street, making it very private, but easily accessible. Though there is no central air, we have no real need, as Gloucester is surrounded by ocean, and delightfully cool in the summer.
This condo is perfect for 1-2 couples or for a family of 4. Pets OK upon approval.

had a great time!
had a great time!
It was a real treat to stay in someone's home, not just a cottage. Very nicely furnished and so comfortable, especially the sofa. Loved the instruments and Asian textiles. Got a great picture of the geisha doll in the hallway! Great location, within walking distance to Good Harbor, and a short drive or bike ride to any place else. The kitchen was great; my friends and I got lobsters and cooked a lovely meal. The hosts even let us have tomatoes and basil from their garden! On my last night there, the weather was cool and foggy. I listened to the sound of seagulls and fog horns. That memory stays with me now, on this cold January night. It's always so hard to leave Cape Ann after such a relaxing week. This is a great place. The hosts are friendly and will check in to see how you are doing, without being obtrusive (and their dog is nice, too!).

Perfect Family Location and Pet Friendly too!

We just returned home from this wonderful rental. We stayed from August 10th-17th. The location is within easy walking distance of Good Harbor Beach, which is just beautiful. We went to Cape Ann Whale watching which is literally a 7 minute walk from the house....we saw three Humpback whales! Al and Barb are wonderful hosts and leave a great list of recommended restaurants and things to do. Definitely check out the Causeway restaurant....the wait is well worth it! We brought our dog Meeko with us and he was welcomed just like the family member that he is. Gloucester is such a quaint town and there are many beaches you can take your dog to. I strongly recommend this rental and the wonderful people who share their home! Thanks Al and Barb!!

Nice property was within walking distance of both Good Harbor Beach and downtown Gloucester where there are many restaurants and things to do (5-15 min walk to nearly everything). Owners were friendly and accommodating...including guests and pets. A great place for a reasonable price.

Our family of four had a wonderful time in this rental. The rental was fully stocked with everything we needed. The rental was very neat and clean. We had everything that we needed. The only things we had to purchase was food and toiletries. There was always an ocean breeze flowing through cooling us even on the hot, humid days. Off street parking was wonderful. The owners checked in with us a couple of times to see if we needed anything, and when we did need advice on travel into the city, they helped us plan the best possible trip. It is a short walk from Good Harbor Beach, which does fill up quickly on those hot days. Within walking distance of downtown as well. We did not bring our dog, but the owners welcomed our dog. We felt this was home away from home. We had a wonderful stay, and you will too. Thank you !!

My husband and I had a wonderful Gloucester vacation at this condo! Our hosts made sure to have their condo ready for our every need. They are only a phone call away if there should be any questions. They provide plenty of helpful hints as to great places to visit, eat, etc. The location is ideal and was about a ten minute walk to Good Harbor! Although we decided not to bring our dog, the owners had given permission for us to do so. We made use of the room fans during our stay due to the hot and humid temperatures during our week. It was an easy drive to Gloucester Harbor, Main St, and Rocky Neck. We highly recommend it!

Owner response: Yes, we are pet friendly, as we are pet owners who love their pets! We have traveled with our 9 year-old Aussie Shepherd in the past and always feel more welcomed when she is welcomed as well. We want to pass that along to our renters. Thanks for the great review - we enjoyed having you!

About the owner: Our names are Barbara and Al Boudreau. We have a jazz band that plays regularly in the area, including Boston. During your stay, maybe you could catch our show!

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
Gloucester is one of the most beautiful, interesting towns in the world, not to mention the amazing beaches for swimming, the intriguing history and friendly, helpful residents. We have moved many times in our lives, but Gloucester is the last. You will enjoy your stay here. There are so many wonderful things to do that cross over the cultural and recreational line.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This location is very convenient, and you won't spend much time in the car unless you leave the island. Walk to breakfast, then walk to the beach, take a sunset drive around the back shore, then stop at a local restaurant for all different kinds of music, all within a short drive of the house. Talk to us about a boat trip down the Annisquam, and go under the bridge that you crossed into town. Relax and enjoy, you're in Gloucester.
