  • Wonderful apartment in Marblehead

    "We stayed here in mid-August 2014 & thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marblehead! There is a side door to the left side of the house with staircase directly to the 3rd floor apt - while you might be out of breathe at the top - it's worth the hike! The apartment is spacious and was a perfect choice for us along with our 9 yr old & my 71 yr mom. The 9 yr old used the day bed in the corner of the living room and for a small additional fee, we used the 2nd bedroom (1 queen bed) for my mom. Everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and we had breakfast there each morning - plus dinners a few nights. The apartment, towels and bedding are all in pristine condition - just keep in mind that this is a very old house and you will feel some un-eveness in the floors. The property is in a central location within Marblehead's old town. Although we did several day trips into Boston (drive ~30 min to closest subway stop & take the T), just staying in the village is a lovely relaxing time. The home owner provided maps with location of beaches, eating places, etc as well as many details on where to find things. Local people in Marblehead were wonderul and welcoming! We met local families several times at the beaches and at the Little Harbor Boathouse (for SUP board & Kayaking). While the water is cold - the welcome is warm! The mansion tours, shopping and walking around the local areas are fabulous! Enjoy your time here - we surely did!"

  • Beautiful home with a stunning view

    "I had several friends and family come stay in this home for two nights and everyone was blown away by the view and elegance of the home. You can hear the waves while laying in bed at night, and just a short drive into Newburyport downtown for lots of great shops and restaurants. Everyone had their own comfortable beds and everything they needed for the stay. Property was professionally cleaned before we arrived and there were ample clean towels and extra pillows and bed linens (along with extra toiletries if needed). The views and property are even more amazing in person than in the photos. I would absolutely invite everyone back to do this again. Dave, the home owner, was very helpful and accommodating before and during our stay. Highly recommend this place!!"

  • a lovely visit

    "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!"

  • 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."
