References: The Harrington Family: From the moment we arrived, we knew that it was going to be a special time. The New England June weather was fabulous, Only three off daysnout of three weeks, the rest was picture perfect.

The Leister Family: We all arrived travel weary, after seeing the hosue we were ready to explore. How beautiful! You can tell love and joy have been here for along time. The each was perfect for the kids and us. Every year we rate our facation as to if we would come back ornot. We would come back in a heartbeat. Loved the hosue, loved the b each and enjoyed our time in Gloucester and Rockport. We had a great time, thank you again!

The Dougherty Family: This is our second time using this awesome beach hosue on Bungalow Road and both times it has stood up our large family. For the two weeks we stayed hered, it's amazing to get away from everyhing else even though we are locals. It has an amazing beach side view, and very satisfying to sleep to ocean sounds.

References: The Young Family: Our first of hopefully many, summer holidays at 18 Rear Bungalow was all and more then we had hoped for. The weather was a far cry from the weather we have grown accustomed to in Belgium. To wake up every morning to the incredible water views is one we shall miss dearly. The memories of this shared with our family & freinds will not be fleeting. Marcia, Thank you for sharing your 'cottage by the sea.'
We are looker forward to many more memories next summer.

'One of the Very Best!'
'We have gone to many beach houses. The Outer Banks, Cape Cod, and RI. Our extended families included an 8 mth old, 3 year old, 5 and 6 year olds, along with two 14 year olds, 18 and 21 year olds along with 5 adults. Even though the weather was not perfect, the house was. It was everything we had hoped for and much, much more. We felt like we were at a relatives house, not a 'beach rental'. The house is very large and had plenty of 'space' for anyone to 'retreat' even on the

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Our three children grew up on Wingaersheek Beach and loved every minute. Now they are gown and living their own lives, so we decided to allow others to enjoy what we still do without the children full time. Ours is a home, cozy and comfortable, not a rental space. We love to enjoy the off season, in the spring, fall and winter. Allowing you to enjoy the prime time all summer long. As well as family celebrations and Holidays throughout the year.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
We rented on Wingaersheek when our kids were small and just loved the commute from Boston, the one and half mile shallow beach with no undertow, wonderful city of Gloucester and all the city has to offer. The commute is still easy, the beach pristine and Gloucester having the same small town feel, including history, culture, sights, interesting shops and delicious cuisine. We couldn't think of a more wonderful place to spend time with family, friends, celebration mile stones or just alone watching the sun set, looking at the stars or sitting by the fire on a cool evening. If you don't believe us, call us to schedule a visit and walk through the Beach House to ensure the perfect get away from it all! Marcia

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A warm, comfortable living environment, a unique experience from getting away from it all, or inviting family and friends to share the time or festive gatherings and celebrations. Gloucester offers many interesting, historic and culinary attractions, something for everyone. Or just sit on the deck or beach and enjoy the view, the quiet off season, the activity in season or just a walk down the 1 1/4 mile walk to the Castles.
