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 North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

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!

What can you ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

Feel at home... Without the worry! Reading, listen good music and relaxing... Just enjoy the moment! What can we ask for more? The house was perfect, the neighborhood, the sun, sky, spa and the sea... Everything was perfect. And Ivan was so nice, there but very discret... The perfect host. Recall for next year without any doubt!

Wonderful retreat atop a hill one block from the sea

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 week stay at Ivan's lovely place. The views were as advertised and more We enjoyed the small town atmosphere and friendly people in it. One mile walk to mass transit which we used to visit Boston Salem and Rockport . We had Sunday brunch at Mission on the Bay twice and dinner once. The food was very good but wait staff sub par. We ate at Anthony's twice and enjoyed it. We ate at several other places that were very good. We would highly recommend Ivan and Swampscott to anyone wanting to explore Massachusetts and relax and enjoy the views

Boston Vacation

  • 3 of 5

The overall experience was very good. The home was close to all the destinations we had planned to visit during our stay in Massachusetts. The views were amazing especially from the master suite. It was a very comfortable place to end our day. The layout of the home is very good and you can see the ocean from almost every room. However, I may suggest a few changes. Too many plants. Most are not even healthy plants. Without them the space would seem cleaner and less cluttered. The kitchen could use a deep clean. I realize that the summer season is just starting but the refrigerator and pull out pantry were both filthy dirty. Also, if you are going to stock the unit with items for your quest to use you may want to check the "use by dates" many items were expired. Two more things, we usually travel with our own pillows but we forgot them. Ivan, buy new pillows. The ones in the unit are old and stained. Not very comfortable or appealing at all. Overall we had a nice stay.

Relaxation at its finest.

  • 5 of 5

With relaxing views sitting on the 2 balconies when sipping wine or drinking coffee one experiences a sense of peace. The house has a welcoming and homey atmosphere. We really enjoyed the option of cooking in the well appointed kitchen while also having stores and restaurants within walking distance. It truly is a home away from home and central to both Boston and the historic attractions in the country.
