Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Boston for the first time and stayed at this beautiful condo in Marblehead, MA. Phil, thank you for everything :) The condo had more than we expected from breakfast fixings to comfortable beds and soft towels. K-cups were even provided for us! Check-in and out was easy and convenient.

The view was peaceful and beautiful. The location is in walking distance of restaurants (check out the Driftwood for breakfast to go) and a lovely grocery store called Crosby Market - I wish they had one in my neighborhood here at home!!

Salem was about 20 minutes away and we loved our visit there. We were not a fan of Boston itself (that traffic is crazy!!) but if we ever do decide to come back we all said we would stay at Phil's condo again.

Charming Marbleheade- Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Marblehead. Everything was in walking distance to this nicely appointed apartment.

I would have liked to have air conditioning in the MAIN bedroom, since July temperatures got quite high. Other rooms were air conditioned.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Because of the type of window (crank-out type) we cannot install a A/C unit. We recommend, during really hot weather to leave the other A/C's running with interior doors open and position the several fans to channel the cooler air into the master bedroom. Works pretty well, but I agree, it does take a little thought.

Beautiful view, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The view is just as pictured, you are right on the town dock. The condo is perfectly located in Old Marblehead, walking distance (less than 5 minutes) from 2 coffee shops, grocery store; 10 minute walk to bookstore, movie theater, sushi restaurant and other coffee spots.

Leave your car parked and walk to the amazing harbor views of Ft. Sewell, Crocker Park, and Little Harbor, where you can also rent kayaks. Condo is spotless and well kept. We've rented here for many years and wouldn't miss a summer!

Wonderful month in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay at this property for a month in April/May. The location couldn't be better ... great view of the harbor, two restaurants right across the street (Driftwood is perfect for breakfast, and The Landing has great lobster rolls), the market is a two minute walk, a rocky beach and two parks are just up or down the street, and it's an easy walk into the charming town of Marblehead. It also makes a great home base to explore the area.There is a beautiful long beach close by in Swampscott, Salem is very interesting, there are lots of great towns to visit up the coast, and it's an easy day trip into Boston.

The unit is very comfortable, bright, clean, and pleasant to be in, and the decor definitely made me feel like I was in New England. It had everything I needed for a longer stay ... clean white bathroom with enough hot water for a bath, soft towels and sheets, comfortable bed, pillow choices, good kitchen, cable TV, decent internet, and a washer and dryer. Although it was chilly at times, I still enjoyed going up to the roof deck to see the ever-changing panoramic view. The parking space was very convenient, and I didn't find noise to be a problem. Carrying my heavy bag up the narrow stairs was a bit of a challenge, but totally worth it to be on the top floor. Phil was easy to reach if I had questions, and very accommodating with any requests. I am already looking forward to my next visit.
