  • Perfect beach house for families

    "We just returned from a wonderful week at this beach house. We were three adults and one (very active) three year old. The location was perfect, on a quiet lane less than a 10 minute walk from Front Beach (a perfect beach for young and old alike) and the main streets of Rockport. The house was spacious and had everything we needed. The back and side yards were excellent for a BBQ, berry picking, and basketball. The cook in our party (not me) would have preferred a larger assortment of (sharper) cooking knives, but the kitchen is otherwise well stocked. We had a wonderful time, and would stay here again on our next trip to Rockport."

  • Great location!

    "This was the 1st time we have rented using VRBO and it was a positive experience. We just returned from 4 glorious days at this beach house. There was plenty of room for all of us; mom, dad, 2 middle school boys, and Nana. The house was clean when we arrived, we paid for linens and bath towels which worked out great, kitchen is well equipped, beds were comfy, gas grill, lots of windows for the ocean breeze. Eric, the property manager, is very nice, was attentive to our few needs, and gave us some tourist suggestions. Email communication and reservation process with the owner went very smoothly. Would definitely rent this property again!"

  • My Favorite Vacation Place

    "This is my fourth year staying at Paula & John's inviting vacation home, and I've already booked for next year. The house has everything one could need for a week away from home - comfortable beds and living room, well equipped kitchen, back porch with grill and eating area and, my favorite, the roof top deck with views of the ocean. There are endless places to kayak in the area, and the beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. My entire family - ranging in age from 2 to 62 - loves this place!"

  • Lovely little home away from home.

    "The photos do it absolute justice. We loved our week long stay in this little piece of heaven. The attention to detail involved in the cottage is impressive. The front porch area is a great place to spend the early morning watching the fish in the little pond. The plum cove beach area is about a 5 minute walk down the street. The little parking garage is a bit tricky to get in to, and be sure there is purple trash bags on your stay. The city wont pick up trash unless you use the city sanctioned bags. We had to go buy our own but the local convenience store has them. The shower was amazing and the whole house integrated sound system was a nice feature also. The wifi was a bit spotty it seemed to come and go. On our visit we checked out the lighthouse area around the breakers, went on the 7 sea's whale watch, ate plenty of clams, cooked our own lobsters (there is a big boiling pot included), drove around the entire cape, checked out Salem, visited Cape Pond Ice, saw the Hammond Castle and went to the Ryan & Wood distillery. There is so much to see and do in the area, that a week is not enough time to see all the sites. I would highly recommend a stay at this little cottage its perfect for a couple visiting the area."
