  • Great Place, Great Spot

    "A wonderful place to use as the hub for a North Shore visit. Short walk to a couple of beaches, and a short drive to several others. Rockport's shops are an easy drive, as are all that Gloucester has to offer. Place is tidy, updated, with great distant ocean view and, at night, wave sounds from the nearby beach."

  • Prime location, well maintained and spacious

    "From the beginning Kathy was easy to communicate with through the whole rental process. As for the house,it is well maintained and spacious, a room for everything. My wife, myself, our younger son and my in-laws stayed in the house for 4 days while we were in the area for a fall New England wedding for our older son. We had originally planned for some site-seeing, but we all decided to chill out in the house during most of our stay. The sun room at the back of the house was our favorite spot, but I also enjoyed the living room where the fire place was, it was peaceful. The master bedroom was ours for the stay and it was awesome. My wife and I enjoyed the sites and smells from this room as well as the large bathroom. Having a place to park the cars was a great plus. Thank you Kathy for sharing such a lovely home while we enjoyed my son's wedding to a beautiful New England (Boston) girl."

  • Extremely nice bungalow in a beautiful setting

    "This lovely split-level bungalow was perfect for our family vacation! It is located in a peaceful neighborhood, has a generous back yard and is surrounded by exquisitely beautiful foliage. (Especially in autumn!) Our family of three adult couples appreciated the design that allowed each couple privacy while providing an open area for gathering. The home is well appointed with quality appliances, cookware and utensils. The weather didn't allow us to use the grill on the balcony, but we enjoyed playing games (supplied by the owner) by the fire and watching finches and cardinals dining at the bird feeder on the balcony. Each bedroom has access to the balcony, as does the living room. The elevator came in handy for carrying suitcases, groceries, etc., to the upper floor as well as for persons with mobility issues. Access to the beach is just a short walk down the road. We loved staying at the bungalow and recommend it highly."

  • Lovely place!

    "(English version below) Wir haben im Juli 2014 zu zweit eine tolle Woche in Newbury und Umgebung verbracht. Die im Untergeschoss befindliche Ferienwohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht und brauchen könnte, z.B. auch mit einer charmanten VHS-Sammlung. :-) Die Einrichtung, besonders im Schlafzimmer, ist liebevoll und gemütlich und das Bad sehr geräumig. Waschmaschine und Trockner standen auch zur Verfügung. Zum Haus gehört ein wunderschöner, ruhiger Garten mit vielen Sitzgelegenheiten. Den kleinen Pool und Grill durften wir auch mitbenutzen. Die Eigentümer sind sehr sympathisch, unglaublich hilfsbreit und haben gute Tipps auf Lager, z.B. für das Frühstück (Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley!) Man ist mit dem Auto (Parkplatz vor dem Haus) schnell in Newburyport, wo es u.a. eine Menge Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt. Wer frisches Obst und Gemüse vom Bauern möchte, braucht nur 1 Minute mit dem Auto zur Tender Crop Farm fahren. Ansonsten einfach Michael oder Cindy fragen. Kleiner Tipp: Wer empfindliche Ohren bzw. einen leichten Schlaf hat, sollte trotzdem Ohropax einpacken, da man aufgrund der amerikanischen Bauweise (Holz) ein paar Geräusche aus dem oberen Stockwerk hören kann. Danke an Michael und Cindy für alles! We went for a week in July 2014 and spent a wonderful time in Newbury and around. The apartment in the basement offers anything you need or could need, e.g. a charming collection of films on VHS. :-) You can see that a lot of love for detail went into the furnishing. The bathroom is very big and a washing machine and a dryer are available there, too. The beautiful and quiet garden offers plenty of seating and you may even use the little pool or the BBQ. Michael and Cindy are very nice and incredibly helpful landlords and can offer great tips (Go to Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley for breakfast!). Don’t be afraid to ask them. It’s only 5 minutes to Newburyport (for any shopping) and 1 minute to Tender Crop Farm (for fresh produce). Just one suggestion if you are a light sleeper: You might want to use earplugs, since you can hear some noise from upstairs. Thank you, Michael and Cindy, for everything!"
