  • Nirvana at Good Harbor Beach

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: If you have a group of ten and can manage the expense, this is an ideal arrangement. Beautiful house, fully outfitted, with easy access to Good Harbor Beach. A warning: if you plan to bring a crowd to Duckworth Bistro (recommended) book a table at least a month in advance."

  • Beautiful, character filled home in DT Gloucester!

    "I didn't want to leave and already booked for next year! The house is clean and well appointed. The owner takes wonderful care of the house and property and is very easy to communicate with. The house is located right in downtown Gloucester, so it is walking distance to restaurants and shops. Quick drive to world class beaches, Good Harbor and Wingearsheek. Great home for families or for a couples get away. The sun porch overlooking the harbor is my favorite room."
