Recent Rockport reviews
"The house was a perfect location for our reunion of 4 friends from High School (now in our mid 50's, two coming from NY & one from TX). We especially loved the phenomenal porch overlooking the lovely yard and the babbling brook. The house was is a great location, with easy walks to the beach and Bearskin Neck, so we could each pick our ideal way to spend time and meet up without any 'negotiation'. The house is beautiful, with new creative touches that we were so pleased to notice as our week progressed. It was so well stocked that I never had to go to my stash of utensils & paper products brought along from prior rental experiences. There were plenty of restaurants in town and when we decided to venture out to Gloucester, Deborah's recommendation was excellent! It was such a great vacation."

"This cottage offers superb views of the ocean - almost as if you were onboard a ship ! The extra large patio doors of the living room open on a deck and a magnificient view of Thatcher Island and its Twin Lights. Plus, the cottage is only minutes away from either Gloucester and Rockport. It's central location is perfect to visit all the interesting spots on Cape Ann. The interior of the cottage is comfortable and accurately presented in the photos.
If you are looking for a calm and quiet place centrally located, this cottage is for you. We will definitely return and we warmly recommend it.

"The Golden Cottage in Rockport was a gem of a find. We cannot say enough about how wonderful it was for our long weekend getaway! We rented the home for a family get-together, and all 8 of us were very comfy. The bedrooms were all very cozy, bright and airy, and the downstairs rooms were open and spacious. The view from both decks is spectacular -- it was so pleasant waking up to that every morning. And you're only a quick walk down a short garden path to the water. The swimming off the rocks was great, but anyone who ventures down to the public waterfront, please be wary of the incredible amount of poison ivy along the shore! (Fortunately we were all very careful and no one was affected :) . The backyard and gardens are lovely, too --we saw lots of rabbits and fireflies, an added bonus. We wished we were staying for longer!"

"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."
