Another great stay
Once again, we absolutely loved our two weeks at Angie & Jeff's place which went WAY too quickly. You just can't get a better location with access to Coffin's Beach.
This year, they added a Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett's brand) margarita maker for guests' use. Even though we didn't use it, we thought it was a very cool and appropriate addition to the beach house.
With the snowstorm last season, they lost all their patio furniture which means it's all new this year, and it is very nice. They also added a paddleboard for our use, and boy, was that a hit with our kids!
The thing I love about these owners is how they are so willing to go above and beyond even after we've left. My son had ordered contacts that were to be overnighted to him, and we couldn't figure out why it showed delivered, but were nowhere to be found. Turns out that we were unaware that overnight service from the USPS goes to their locked community mailbox which we of course would not have access to. Angie was awesome and sent us the package the following week when we left the house, and it was much appreciated! My sister in law (lives in Gloucester) also inadvertantly left some beach toys at the house that we somehow missed when we did our final walk through before leaving. Angie was more than happy to connect with her to get them picked up, which was much appreciated.
I've got to say, they must have the best cleaning crew ever. Both stays we've been here the home was immaculate, I mean just spotless. Wish we could get a cleaning service like that where we live! Hard to find, believe me.
It makes me sad that we won't be returning next year, only because we will be taking a trip to Europe next year during the same two weeks we've been renting it. That means our 6/18-7/2 weeks will be open for another family. Jump on it now, as I am sure it will be gone quick! We love these two weeks because it's before peak tourist season (Coffin's Beach is SO quiet!) on the North Shore and falls during the always fun St Peter's Fiesta.
Highly recommend this property for a no-hassle, peaceful vacation with owners who take pride in their beautiful home and make the rental process seamless for those who are fortunate enough to rent from them during the coveted summer months. They are constantly making improvements/upgrades to the already pristine property because it's THEIR vacation home as well. We were very surprised to see that the kitchen had been beautifully renovated with bamboo floors and updated counter tops/functional workspace and features were added, including a pasta arm for big pots on the stove.
One of our biggest comments throughout our 2 weeks stay was how *this* is how all vacation home experiences should be modeled after: gracious owners and personal touches to give each room its own personality and warmth without being too "cluttered" nor make guests feel like they invaded a private, "unlivable" home. It was a fantastic balance. The enclosed patio right off the outdoor patio is really nice and provided much-needed quiet time. The windows and skylights also appear to be fairly new so they were SO easy to open and shut -- the amount of windows really contribute to the ethereal feel of the home. The outdoor cold/hot shower was also so convenient.
The only thing I would make sure to be aware of is that like most beach properties, the main parts of the home (2nd and 3rd floors) have to be accessed from the floor/street/basement level by a slightly steep set of stairs (whose railings are made of old boat oars - so charming!), so this might want to be considered for those who have a hard time with stairs. We ended up using the back of the house as the entry point which was an easier climb.
We have stayed at other properties on/near Wingaersheek (and all over the US) but this blew them all away. Going to sleep to the sound of the waves less than 100 feet from the home and waking up to them the next morning *still* makes us smile, 1600 miles away in this dang Texas heat. :) Hurry up, summer 2015!
Perfect weather and beautiful views of the ocean
House was clean and definitely large enough, open living, dining and kitchen areas were just right for entertaining our family and friends. Enough space was our overnight guests, everyone loved the beach and the location.
Thank you to Angela and Jeff for a great vacation spot. Hope we can come back to the area soon!
Family vacation memories
Jeff and Angela are very gracious and delightful to open their home to my family. Their home is clearly cared for and lovely. Jeff and Angela were there upon our arrival to welcome us, as Jeff said it's "your house for the week". The home was very comfortable for the 2 young families of 5 that stayed there. It provided a variety of sleeping options as well as ample room to prepare and eat meals. I hope to make this a family tradition! I would highly recommend this rental not only because Jeff and Angela are great to work with, but the home is lovely and the location to the beach is wonderful. Not surprising no one wanted to leave.
Beautiful home on quiet beach
I spent a wonderful long weekend in this lovely home, a couple of steps from a beautiful, quiet beach, with gorgeous sunsets and calm waters. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate 2 large families. The kitchen was well-equipped, the deck was large with seating for everyone, and there's a great gas grill for barbecuing. Everything was exceptionally neat and clean. The beds were very comfortable with linens and towels provided! The local sites were very interesting--lots of museums, parks, nature preserves, and shopping. The area restaurants were exceptional. And we really appreciated how easy it was to get to from the Boston airport.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at the beach and thank you so much for the greate review you gave to our house, we really appreciate it.
Have a Great Summer and we hope to see you again!
Angela and Jeff
