About The Owner

We are retired and love living by the sea. We bought this wonderful historic house, which was built in 1830, and completely renovated it.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2002

Why The Owner chose Rockport

Rockport, to us, is the next thing to paradise. Listening to the sound of the sea on a daily basis is relaxing, soothing and rejuvenating. Come and join us in this quaint New England coastal seaside village!

What makes this studio unique

Being in the village makes everything so easily accessible. Within a few minutes you can be sipping a cup of coffee at a nearby shop, sitting on the beach reading a book, or jogging along the ocean path.

Awesome Property!

Gaynelle provided a wonderfully clean, quiet and comfortable studio in an absolutely beautiful location only steps from Front Beach. I certainly look forward to another stay.

My Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my second stay at this lovely cozy retreat by the ocean. As I mentioned in an earlier review from last year, it is the perfect place to stay in Rockport. Right by the beach, walk to town, immaculate - and the loveliest owners! I highly recommend this rental property.

Charming Studio > Relax and Walk Everywhere

  • 5 of 5

I love staying here! Beauty, charm, walking distance to everything, only steps to the ocean. I love that it's so pretty here; love that when you walk into this beautifully designed studio you are walking into the living room, not into the bed. The bed pulls down easily from the wall behind the couch (a Murphy Bed) and is ever so comfortable. Plenty of space for your belongings. A place to truly call home during your visit, and the owners are lovely and trustworthy beyond measure. Place, location, people > all five stars. Thank you!! See you next year!

Delightful Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

I am a long time visitor to Rockport and I have stayed at various inns over the years. This apartment is the perfect little retreat! It has all the necessities for a single or couple and is directly across from the beach. It is also only a two minute walk to the main shopping area so a car is not necessary to enjoy all that downtown Rockport and Bearskin Neck have to offer. The owners are lovely and very accommodating and create a very comfortable atmosphere for the visitor. It is also priced very well for Rockport. I would definitely recommend this rental property. I hope to come back!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a mid-December writing retreat and found this comfortable, cozy studio to be the perfect spot. It is exceptionally clean and nicely furnished, including a VERY comfortable and practical "Murphy bed" that disappears into the wall with minimal effort. The kitchenette is tiny, but has all the appliances and pots and pans you need. The apartment gets plenty of natural light and has pleasing partial views of Front Beach and the back of downtown Rockport. It is walking distance to everything--shops, restaurants, the Shalin Liu Performance Center, and the train to Boston. The radiant heat keeps it evenly warm and cozy. All that and friendly hosts, too. I recommend it highly.

Modern Charm Adjacent to Front Beach! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We call it ‘The Nest’, and love it here! Even though we live in Gloucester, the town next door, coming here is a total holiday! Ideal for one or two, this street-side studio recently renovated with architecturally smart, warm design is light, functional, and welcoming. Everything about it works – beauty, space, charm, location! Hear the ocean from inside, or walk out your door, cross the street corner and enjoy the beach, or walk to town. Do try our 'favorite blueberry pancakes ever' at Nate’s around the corner! This place has nice people and welcoming Nature everywhere. Reserve early! We’re coming back!
