About John Kirks

Massachusetts residents who spend part of our time in the summer at the cottage

Why John Kirks chose Rockport

Rockport is a unique combination of historic village, a center for the arts, as well as a beach town. We looked at every beach town in Massachusetts (not to mention the entire coast from NH to RI), and Rockport was our top choice!!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 Adults with kids aged 12 and 15) had a great vacation in this well-appointed rental- bedrooms were large and airy,living room was spacious and comfy and the kitchen had all the ammenties a family could want. The **bonuses** of this house were the heated POOL, proximity to shops and beach, outdoor shower, multiple seating areas and 2 full baths. We loved this rental and appreciated the touches that made it special - easy and comfortable decor, heated pool and great outdoor space, and owners who checked in and left information on restaurants, activities and age-appropriate board games for family entertainment. Looking forward to Rockport again next year!!!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the cottage in July 2014 and we had a great vacation.The house is perfect for a family of four (kids 2 and 4 years old) and it was even more space than we had expected. The room with the bunk beds was perfect for the kids but what they loved most was the pool with all the toys and swimming gear. The pool is well fenced so we never needed to worry about that the kids could get into the pool area.

The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could need for your BBQ on the shaded deck or to your beach pic nic. Plastic plates and glasses to use by the pool.

Location in Rockport is perfect with walking distance to Bear Skin Neck and to beaches. Eventhough the cottage is surrounded by houses it is private enough.

The owners were very quick in responding and helping in any question. We will definately come back to this nice house.

Wonderful location and beautiful rental!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in June 2014 for a week with our family of 4 (two kids 4 and 6 yrs old). It was a perfect rental! It was a beautiful house, with a large open floor plan downstairs with a shaded deck outside and grill. The downstairs has a twin bedroom and full bathroom. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and my kids loved staying in the room with the bunk beds. Upstairs also has a full bathroom with a tub (great for my kids ages). There is also a deck upstairs. The kitchen is fully loaded and has everything you could need. The added bonus is the pool! It was great to come back after the beach and cool off in the pool, my kids loved it. Best part is the location! It is very quick to walk to downtown Bear Skin Neck and eat lobsters for dinner! I was 8 months pregnant at the time and had no problem walking downtown. We love this rental and the owners were incredibly fast and responsive with any questions or issues we had. We will totally rent again next year.

Family Vacation, summer as it should be

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year vacationing in this home with our family of four. We hope to come back every year! The house is above the mark for a beach rental and well maintained by the owners. Little touches (such as a welcome chalked sign with our family name, area maps and activity ideas as well as various age appropriate toys clearly set out) make you feel on vacation instantly. The main level deck is just out a sliding door from the kitchen and was perfect for outdoor meals. The location iof the house is wonderful, a quick walk to the beach or town for shops and restaurants, yet private enough to have much needed relaxation time. Some perfect summer mornings the big decison was to explore the nearby tide pools and beaches before or after a swim in the houses own heated pool. There are many activities available from Rockport as a base so I would add that this home could be enjoyed by those seeking both relaxation or adventures.
