About Lisa and Patrick Halloran

I grew up in Montreal, Canada and met my husband PJ while he visited Montreal. PJ grew up in Gloucester and has an intimate knowledge of the area having worked on local whale watches and Inns before going to college and accepting a commission in the U.S. Army. We now live north of Boston where he serves as a Firefighter and I as a Manager.

Lisa and Patrick Halloran purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa and Patrick Halloran chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

My family vacationed in the area for many years renting homes over the summer. When this property became available we immediately jumped on the chance to own a property across the street from our favorite beach.

What makes this house unique

The ability to walk to Good Harbor and not worry about the parking or congestion is worth it in itself. The size of the house and outside entertaining area are sure to make everyone happy.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Family friendly property that is a very short walk to the beach! Excellent backyard for family cookouts and letting the kids play while parents relax. Would absolutely return to this property for future vacations!

Great Home for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean and well kept. It has plenty of room for multiple families to gather for a vacation. Very close walk to the beach. Large yard for kids to play and we enjoyed making s'mores at the fire pit at night. We had a great time staying here!

Perfect Place

  • 4 of 5

This rental was a perfect weekend stay for a family wedding. There were 10 adults and it had plenty of space for us all. They had everything you could need and very convenient. About as close to the beach as you could want, definitely walking distance. Great for dogs! The yard is fenced and there are shade trees for them to lay under.

House was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. There were 12 of us staying here from Northern Vermont. We had our entire 8th grade class. Unfortunately for us it rained most of the time. We had planned on having a BBQ at the house, they have a nice big back yard and fire pit. The beach is within walking distance, but again we did not get to really enjoy it because of the rain. There were plenty of things to do even in the rain, games, books, TV, and the kids brought their video game station.We would definitely stay here again.

There are several whale watches operating out of downtown Gloucester as well as a harbor cruise and fishing charters. On the land side, there is a great walking food tour of the city run by Cape Ann Foodie tours. Rockport is a short drive away and home to artisan studios and quaint shops along bearskin neck.
