Property description

Special offers are in effect for this summer, which you will hear details about if you call 978-761-3149. This also includes some reductions in your cost depending on the week and current vacancies.
This charming, romantic one bedroom townhouse is located in a quiet, seaside neighborhood on the desirable Rocky Neck in Gloucester Harbor. It has water views and boating access and is just steps away from the water. Water/small beach access is around the corner. Rocky Neck is a fun, festive art colony with many active music-filled restaurants and art galleries. There is a nearby theater company. This house is on a very private street which ends at the water and so has no thru traffic.
The living room and bedroom both have a little water view.
You can relax and eat outside on the pretty sun deck off the living room, or gravel terrace below, with patio furniture and flower boxes, and landscaping.
Gas Grill
King sized bed upstairs
Bathroom is upstairs, with stand up shower and small tub
Easily sleeps two, but can accommodate 3-4 with full-size sleep sofa
High quality linens for bed and bath.
There are a few antique furnishings in the bedroom and living room.
There is a bedroom ceiling fan and AC (usually not needed) is on both floors. Sea breezes right off the Atlantic often create a lovely freshness to the place.
There is plenty of storage space.
The kitchen is amply-sized and has all the modern conveniences, including large appliances which are new within the last five years. It also has been updated with lovely, new white quartz and maple butcher block counters, as well as granite sink .
There are laundry facilities in the basement for your use.
There is private parking for your car.
This is a safe and friendly area where people often don't even lock doors! But we have security cameras, for your comfort, anyway.
If you don't bring your car, you can get around by cab, bus, water taxi or bikes (but beware of local drivers!). I do recommend a car to take full and easy advantage of the area and region, however.

It is a great getaway for a couple or single person to enjoy the summer in this lovely area. Gloucester and Cape Ann abound with many cultural and recreational activities, such as in Gloucester: whale watching, large sailboat cruises and many cultural activities and events from Saint Peter's Fiesta in late June to the Tall Ships Parade and Mayor's Cup Race over Labor Day. Also, in Rockport you can find Kayak and bike rentals (and you can schmooze around Bear Skin Neck in Rockport while you're there),

This is available for:
before June 15 and after September 15th: $850 week,
June 15-Sept 15th $900/week,
plus $50 cleaning fees, depending on dates and duration of stay.
( VRBO service fee can be considered as a damage deposit -to be refunded after visit unless needed).

Car: Recommended

There is a wonderful live theater company which you can walk to in 7 minutes! There is usually a water taxi to connect to Ten Pound Island and also downtown without a car. I do recommend a car to most easily take advantage of this wonderful area. There is a Maritime Heritage Center downtown, with kid friendly exhibits including an outdoor tide pool aquarium. There is a movie theater downtown with art films and couches and you can bring your own food and wine or order in. There are so many cultural and fun in or outdoor activities to do here.....I could go on and on!!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I'm a physical therapist who is currently working full time. I love this area for all it's charm, natural beauty, availability of outdoor recreation, it's culture and it's quirky, artsy people! Photo was taken at the Beauport Museum yard, (Beauport is close by on Eastern Point and was the home of an arts/antiques collector from the 20's-30's). When I'm not working, I sometimes go kayaking in the ocean, take long walks on or along the beach with friends, bike or enjoy many of the cultural opportunities in the area. I look forward meeting my summer guests and giving tips on great places to go or to eat, if you'd like to know!

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
I decided to buy a vacation rental in this location because I wanted to spend time on Cape Ann, especially Rocky Neck, which is a beautiful and unique place, year round. I love to go hear the music 'on the Neck' on summer evenings or even taking a walk around Rocky Neck anytime. It's an easy trip to the water to paddle a boat or go for a swim.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Staying at this property is wonderful. As described in the listing, there are water views from the property and beautiful views all around, just steps away. You will find that the place is quiet, clean and charming and as many artists have said, the light is unique on Rocky Neck (and Cape Ann), which is why it attracts many artists. Almost any road on Rocky Neck has some kind of view of the water, so you can see great beauty from dawn to dusk and then there's the night sky....! There are lots of fun things to do just an easy walk away from the property on Rocky Neck in the summer, as it's still a flourishing 'art colony'. You will enjoy taking walks to several beaches, from here. It's just great!
