Annual Family Vacation
"This was our second summer at the Golden Cottage and it was more enjoyable than the first. The set up of the home, the great views and perfect location make the Golden Cottage a great family gathering spot. Don't miss the Lobster Pot, best lobsters ever and for a special night we would recommend The Market Restaurant in Gloucester."

"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!"

"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."

"House was fabulous! Location is great for walking around town or just sitting on the porch looking at the beautiful view. We had 15 of our family together and everyone loved it! We fixed several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The dining room table was big enough that our entire family could enjoy meals together.
Thanks Tim and Laurie!"
