  • WORTH CONSIDERING STRONGLY!

    "We are "professional renters". Vacation renters in US and abroad. My wife and two children were very pleased with The Jewel. I know Rockport well having spent many summer weeks there in my childhood. The Jewel has a great location, off street parking, very nice neighbors in building and Deb allows small dogs. The unit is VERY clean and well constructed. AC is a bonus and is in the main room. To get AC in the bedroom must leave bedroom door open which may reduce privacy if staying with children. Access to bathroom is through the bedroom as well. Not a problem, just something to consider so that expectations are met and no surprises. We tried to book it again for a week in summer 2015 but already booked up. There is a reason for the early filling. Instead we are booking the upstairs Penthouse unit that Deb was gracious to show us on our day of departure last summer. Very impressive. Deborah is awesome. I have never met a host as helpful, genuine and kind as she and I have met some. The process was transparent and smooth and all expectations were met or exceeded. The Jewel is a "slam dunk" rental in a great little town."

  • a lovely visit

    "This apartment has the most perfect location in Rockport - perfect if you want to be right on the water, steps away from shops, above great coffee, next door to fabulous ice cream, up the street from fantastic lobster... Comfortable, with a great washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, all kitchen equipment you could want and a bright and airy feel. Even the shower does not disappoint - great water pressure! The only challenge is parking. On street parking is sometimes available but not always at the height of the season. We rented a parking place at the Peg Leg Inn and that solved that problem. We had a wonderful stay and would love to return!"

  • Very charming house, beautiful ocean view, and fully equipped!

    "We family of 4 with 2 elementary school girls stayed here for 1 full month. When we moved in, we were impressed with how clean and arranged house was. Even the typical spots in kitchen near stove and floor corners were all clean! The house owner is extremely kind and obviously takes care of this house with extreme care. The location is brilliant with walking distance to beautiful places like Fort Sewall & Crocker Park and local (beloved) restaurants like Jacktar and Landing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
