Spacious property, beautiful views, private beach - perfect family vacation!
"This home is exactly as pictured and described, located in a safe, private compound, with a private beach. It is clean, updated and well maintained. Perfect for a large family, especially with small children. My kids loved the ping pong table and the many board games - they did not even use the tv! The beach is an easy, short walk for all ages and the beach cove was calm and uncrowded. We enjoyed it daily. The kitchen is large, well stocked and beautiful, and the deck has truly amazing sunset views of the ocean, with lots of comfortable seating. Having a yard, A/C, bbq, washer/dryer, beach chairs, outdoor shower, etc. made our stay carefree. This is not a party house - it is in a quiet neighborhood and many of the other residents were longtime owners. Exceptionally peaceful way to enjoy family time in Gloucester. Karen was very responsive and helpful, before, during and after our stay!"

"Talk about being centrally located and convenience, you got it here at Al and Barb's home. There's a 7/11, Stop & Shop, Beauty Parlour, ice cream shop and the beach all within walking distance. You can walk to Main St. and all the boutique shops too, if you want? We're open ocean kayakers, and love this place because there was lots of parking on the lot and we didn't have to park our car out on the street with the kayaks on top, like most places. Al said there was room in the back, so we could off load, hose down and store in the back yard.
Inside, the beds were comfortable, wifi worked, and the kitchen was complete. There's big screen tv too. I told Al, my daughter was a finger picking guitarist and he loaned her his personal Taylor acoustic guitar.
Perhaps, the most convenient thing about our stay, was walking over to have breakfast at Zeke's at 5:00 a.m. in the morning. Sit at the counter and watch Mike put on a show for you in making your omelet and French toast. Take home some baked in house bread when you go.
We were lucky to stay here and be able to launch our kayak at various locations around Cape Ann. Our only regret was that we wen't able to stay longer. We really do miss Al and Barb's home..."

"We had a wonderful time at the Golden Cottage in Rockport!! We stayed for a long weekend while in the area for a family wedding. Our three adult children (in their twenties), two girlfriends, and my husband and I all had a great time there. We loved the view from the back deck and ate breakfast there every morning. The beds are very comfortable and the towel supply was plentiful. We also loved walking around the town of Rockport. Most of our time was taken up with wedding activities, but we did manage to fit in a walk down the path to the scenic rocky beach. Overall it was a great stay and hope to come back again next year and stay longer!!"

"although this apartment is located on first floor of Lisa's home you would think it was it's own little cottage. It is gorgeous. Very nicely decorated with plenty of room for 2. This apartment is very clean-immaculate with great amenities. Loved that it was bright with plenty of outside light. The bed was very comfortable & we slept so well. It was nice sitting at the kitchen table having our coffee in the morning watching the neighborhood people walking their dogs. Nice short walk to ocean. Lisa welcomes her guests & is available to help & answer your questions. Would highly recommend staying here. My Husband & I hope to stay here again soon."
