  • 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."

  • The beach and the ocean are the yard!

    "This was our second year staying here. The location is wonderful and the beach is clean and sandy. There is a large, comfortable deck with a well-kept grill and the entire deck overlooks the beach and the ocean. The units are very clean and comfortable and the owner goes to exceptional lengths to ensure guests comfort. The layout of the house is great, with a large, well-equiped, clean (the appliances are new/newer) kitchen, with a sliding glass door opening to the deck. The bedrooms are very comfortable and clean and there's a full bath with a tub and shower. This section of the beach is not congested and very family friendly. Although there are two units, one upstairs (where we stayed), and one downstairs, we never felt like we were sharing a house. There is a rare feeling of privacy which is hard to come by. At night, there are fireworks on the beach and you can see the firework disiplays in Hampton Beach which is only a five minute drive. Oh, yes, although we don't fish, many days folks were pulling in very large fish just by fishing from the shore. We have been looking for the perfect vacation spot for years and we have found it. We are planning on staying two weeks next year."

  • Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    "Our group of four totally enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The home was spotless! It was located just three blocks from Good Harbor Beach, two blocks from Long Beach, and within walking distance to Pebble Beach. How great is that? The owner of this home provided books, games, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, etc. Her attention to detail was outstanding. We loved the affordable tickets and easy access to the train station - went into Boston twice. The ice cream cones - two blocks' walk away - were to die for yummy!!! We drove up to Portland, Maine for some shopping and site seeing and came back with two live "lobstas" for supper. Again, the home's kitchen had a big lobster pot and some adorable dishes to eat our fresh seafood on. Everywhere we went on Cape Ann was BEAUTIFUL! The Fisherman's Memorial, the harbor walk, the Crow's Nest, the lighthouses, and a whale watch were other fun activities. So much to do and so little time. Gloucester is a "must see" place and we will certainly visit again."

    "We are pretty easy going, self sufficient folks, this owner took care of every need, was in good contact when needed, made for a very stress-less time on the beach. Lovely clean accommodations, will likely contact him again for the next trip in the area. THANKS SO MUCH!"
