Victorian Villa's First Floor Condo sleeps six, and includes a beautiful Master Suite, with down-comforter Queen Bed, antique furnishings, air conditioning. The French doors open onto a lovely, flower-covered deck overlooking the lush back yard, and the small stream running along the back of the property. Ensuite to the Master Bedroom is a bright bathroom (shower only, no tub). This bathroom also has access from the central hallway.

The First Floor Guest Room provides a down-comforter Double/Full bed, beautiful antique furnishings, a handsome desk surrounded by light-filled windows, and two floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. Adjacent to the Guest Room is a well-appointed half bath.

The focal point of the First Floor Condo is the beautiful gourmet kitchen; with double oven, gas cook top stove, microwave, and all the amenities any cook could want, or need. Eat-in casually at the granite counter, or enjoy formal dining in the adjacent dining room. The bright, gorgeous, living room, with working gas fireplace, has a pull out Queen Sleeper bed. The French doors off the living room open onto the beautiful deck, which overlooks the backyard below.

The Garden Suite is situated directly below the First Floor Condo and may be accessed via the interior staircase, or separate exterior entrance. Garden Suite sleeps 2-4, with a double bed, a Queen Bed sofa, four-person table for dining or games/puzzles, TV, and CD Player. There is a half-bath on the same level; via the laundry room. The Garden Studio is situated at the rear of the home, with windows looking out onto the beautiful back yard. It is quiet, and remains very cool during summer months; no air conditioning is required.

Victorian Villa amenities include: 1 bath with shower and 2 half baths, wireless internet, two air conditioners, cable televisions, DVD players, stereos/CD players, two extensive libraries, full-size washer and dryer, patio furniture, and a charcoal grill in the yard.

One of the best weeks ever for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just amazing and ever so charming. Deborah, the owner was the sweetest and so fortunate to have such lovely properties. She even allowed our 'puppy', "Luna" to have her first Rockport adventure. We have been to Rockport many times but this by far was the coziest, fully stocked, beautifully decorated and whimsical home of all the places we stayed, ever! Deborah was there if we needed her but allowed us to feel independent. The location is just perfect as it is on a side street with not much traffic and just a minute or two walk to the town square, the ocean, Motif #1 and Bearskin. Parking was super and able to accommodate 2 cars per unit. My daughter loved the short walk to the Red Skiff for breakfast in the morning! The back yard is so quaint and sitting on the deck offered such a peaceful vibe. Honestly, there is nothing negative to say as everything was just perfect, peaceful and happy! We had one of the most relaxing Rockport vacations ever and will rent from her again next summer for sure. I'm already planning so we don't miss out on the month we hope to stay next year. Do not hesitate on this home for a second. Also, for those who may be afraid of the pets allowed, I can tell you there was not even a hint that any pet has stayed in the past. The place was pristine and the only smell was of the stunning gardens that surround the home! Rockport was just made more special to us because of Deborah and her beautiful home. Thank you so, so much and see you next year ! We will be in touch soon! =)

PS. If any reader is planning a trip during the 4th of July, DONT MISS THE BONFIRE! It was the largest, most incredible bonfire I could even comprehend! The parade in both Gloucester and Rockport were just as quaint as one could imagine being in New England for such a celebration!

The Perfect Home for a Blissful Week

  • 5 of 5

This home and it's owner, Deborah, should be rated a "10" because it was the most pleasant experience I've encountered during my years of renting from VRBO. The front bedroom was the perfect place for my daughter to get ready for her wedding and the photographer took some great shots there. The open layout of the house and deck was perfect for entertaining after the dress rehearsal and a brunch for family members the morning after the wedding. All the guests were in awe of the beauty and comfort of this home.

The location was perfect - took many walks to enjoy the beautiful town of Rockport. I have already started the sales pitch on my husband to return there next September.

great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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.

AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS

  • 5 of 5

WE SPENT THE WEEK OF AUGUST 16 TO 23, 2014 IN THIS LOVELY VICTORIAN HOUSE : 3 ADULTS AND THREE CHILDREN : 7 AND 5 YEARS OLD AND A 3 MONTH-OLD BABY, AND IT WAS A PURE DELIGHT. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS VACATION WAS TO OUR HEART'S CONTENT : THE HOUSE, THE VILLAGE AND THE BEACH. DEBORAH, OUR HOSTESS, MADE SURE THAT OUR VARIOUS NEEDS WERE MET, INCLUDING THE DOG'S. WE WOULD GO BACK TO THE VICTORIAN VILLA ANYTIME.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a beautiful vacation rental. It's very close to town & beach- walking distance to both. Rockport is lovely. This home is beautifully decorated & VERY WELL stocked with everything you need! Deborah was a delight to deal with & was very accommodating. This home is big & can sleep many! There is even a bonus double bed NOT mentioned in the rental description (I believe it's a new addition). There is also a couch in the master bedroom which makes for a nice, private sitting area. A wonderful stay! Thank you Deborah for making us feel so welcome!

Wonderful family get together

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at this lovely home where Deborah has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We had guests come and go and there was plenty of room for all and everyone loved the home. Deborah was lovely to deal with and a most gracious host. The place was spotless and furnished with everything you need. The deck was where we spent all the time, overlooking the nice yard and bubbling brook when we were at the house,but could not stay away from the town. Being able to walk to town and the beach was just wonderful. Perfect location.
