About Ivan

I was born in Europe and grew up in New York City. Now I am a musician and a professor in Boston.

Ivan purchased this house in 2008

Why Ivan chose Swampscott

My oceanfront, artsy one bedroom house on 2 levels is a true hideaway. It's located completely off the street, only 12 miles from Boston. Enjoy the views, chef's kitchen, the outdoor spa and indoor Jacuzzi, fireplace and more. The house is comfortable, secluded and romantic; perfect for a couple seeking a quiet, private retreat.

What makes this house unique

Ocean views from every window!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Ivan! It was our first Christmas away from family - had a splendid time. Loved the big kitchen, beautiful decks, hot tub, jacuzzi, and of course the phenomenal views. What a relaxing, refreshing and romantic Christmas.

Happy New Year!

Nice stay in New England

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Ivans property; many good things to say about it but all you really have to do is scroll down and see all the prior reviews, they pretty much cover everything, and Ivan is a gracious host. Couple things you might want to know before going however, as I did not see them covered in any previous reviews. 1) there is no driveway to park in, you must park on a side street which is not within view of the condo and is a pretty narrow street, and 2) there is no HDTV, only two small Standard Definition TVs, although I’m trying to talk Ivan into changing that! Overall a great stay, would definitely recommend it, and Ivan is a great guy

Awesome view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was well stocked with everything you might need. It was such a cozy, quiet, place. It was conveniently located. We visited all the towns up the coast. We would consider renting it again.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our stay was amazing! The property is just like the listing. The views are amazing! We loved being able to wake up to the ocean sunrise and fall asleep with the sliding balcony door open listing to the waves. It's a short walk to the beach. It's a great central location for our trip. We were able to come back after a day walking in Boston or Salem and relax in the hot tub. Ivan was a wonderful host and was there to answer questions when we needed. This was a trip I had been wanting to take for years and staying here just made everything perfect.

Beautiful, relaxing, comfortable, enjoyable.

  • 4 of 5

We thank Ivan for sharing his home with us. It was all we hoped for. Short of a king size master bed, we had a great week. The home was all we could have wanted. Nicely appointed with views to die for. I could have spent the week on one of the decks overlooking the ocean. Any stress we had was melted away. And the Swampscott area was all a quaint New England town should be. All the waterfront areas that are accessable to anyone were wonderful. Also, The Antique Table restaurant was fantastic! Some of the best Italian I've had!! I wish they delivered to Florida. We enjoyed the surrounding areas such as Salem, Plymouth, and Rockport. Scenic byway was so mesmerizing. Could have driven up the coast forever. We hope to return next time around.
