Why Audra chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

The building is right on the water and has dramatic views. We renovated to the perfect mix of modern rustic. It is in the center of the village yet quiet and peaceful inside.

View! Clean! View! Modern! View! Comfortable! (did I mention the view?)

  • 5 of 5

Starting with the first contact with Audra, this was a wonderful vacation choice. Located on the upper level of a multi-unit building, this studio apartment has a distinctly European feel. Modern appliances and fixtures, and one of the best bathroom areas we've seen in a rental with efficient wash and dryer, beautifully tiled shower, and the wood look heated tile floor. Large windows and deck opened to the Old Harbor, with clear ocean views to Pigeon Cove and beyond!

Minimal noise from the outside and parking was convenient, right on Bearskin Neck. Watching the tide come in and out on the private beach that literally comes up to the back wall was mesmerizing.

Everything you'd need was right at hand - kitchenware, lots of comfortable blankets and sheets, soft throws, fluffy towels, and all the necessary supplies.

Audra was quick to respond to messages and had the unit available for an early arrival.

A+ all the way around!

Beautiful Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment with a fantastic view!! Rockport is a quaint little community and spending a week in this apartment made me feel like a local. The weather wasn't fantastic while I was there and that made being able to view the storms outside from the warmth and comfort of this apartment so wonderful. A large picture window and a sliding glass door give you a perfect view of the cove/beach, local shops, birds of all kinds, beach combers and dogs.

Audra couldn't have been easier to book with and answered all my questions both before and during my stay promptly and had great suggestions for me.

I was fortunate enough to stay during the fall change of colors and got some fantastic photos.

Having a washer and dryer in the unit really saved me from over packing. Everything is provided for you - including a nice hair dryer (also saved me from packing one).

My only suggestion would be to start a guest book in the unit - I always appreciate when one is available for me to read what other people who have stayed there found interesting to explore in the area and their recommendations for places to dine.

I had a little difficulty with television/internet reception, but that could have been from the storms - it seemed better when the wind wasn't blowing like crazy. I was grateful that I brought my laptop and was able to watch movies on it.

A great stay in a great apartment with a helpful and friendly owner. I have used VRBO for sooooooo many of my vacations - in many countries and I have always been impressed by the properties/owners/transactions. VRBO will continue to have my business in the future.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our stay at this beautiful property. If we could give it 10 stars we would. The location was incredibly picturesque. A quintessential New England location. Enjoyed waking up to the sound of ducks and seagulls in the harbor. The sunsets were spectacular. The property was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped. Parking was easy. There were great places to eat close by. Once you stay here, you will never want to stay in a hotel again. We will most certainly be back.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews I read before renting this lovely apartment had it exactly right. You could NOT be disappointed with this place! You open the door to an aesthetically pleasing, immaculate, cozy loft and immediately relax into your good fortune at picking a real gem. Totally well equipped in every way, anything we wanted for our three day stay in October was there. We watched the tide roll in and out practically right underneath us and delighted in the clear water and several types of water fowl entertaining us as they foraged for food. The view of the ocean and Rockport's beaches is lovely and the afternoon sun lit up the loft. We brought kayaks and spent 2 days paddling and we were able to launch our boats just out behind the apartment. Restaurants, art galleries, a performing arts center and cafes are all within a few blocks but you don't have to sacrifice peace and quite for this perfect location in the heart of historic Bearskin Neck. The loft is very quiet and at night with the window open all we could hear was a gentle lapping of the water on the little beach below. All I can say is . . . next time we'll stay longer!

Flawless in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this loft apartment for 5 nights in June 2015. We had never rented a house/apartment before this trip and we were somewhat hesitant to stray from the usual hotel/resort experience. But from the moment I began communications with the owner of the property about availability for our desired dates, I was completely won over by the owner's exceptional level of responsiveness and the reviews that were previously posted on this site about her and the loft. The day we opened the door to the loft and saw our first real life glimpse of our vacation hideaway, we were utterly ecstatic. This beautiful little gem delivers far more than promised in every way. The view from the private deck is far more breathtaking than the pictures convey and the loft itself is spotlessly clean and super comfy - in the most elegant, polished sort of way. You know immediately that the person who owns this place loves it by how much attention to the details she has paid to it from the décor to every thoughtful amenity. We brought quite a few things from home that we thought might not be provided but once we were in the loft, we realized we didn't need any of the things we brought because they were already there. It was truly a home away from home in that sense so don't over prepare or over pack because everything you need will be there. We slept soundly every night with the sound of ocean breezes, waves and one night, even rain, which was lovely. :) An added bonus no one has mentioned in a previous review is that you will have your own little private beach below the patio when the tide rolls out. We loved sitting out in our beach chairs with a glass of wine watching the sunset and sea critters come to life in the ocean water pulled away and the sand appeared. Truly magical! Rockport itself is as quaint as quaint can be. The restaurant owners, artists, and shop owners are true ambassadors of their town and they convey such a wonderful vibe and energy that you fall in love with the town almost contagiously. All of them share in a great story about the history and present of Rockport and it's a story they love sharing and we loved hearing. We had such a great time and loved this little loft so much that we're have decided to return annually for a weekend getaway, so long as it is available for us to return. I am completely confident anyone who has the opportunity to stay in this little slice of heaven would feel the same way. :)

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This loft was perfectly situated in the old part of the town with restaurants and cafes literally outside the front door, and the ocean literally right outside the back door. We went during the winter for a weekend escape and the ocean was beautifully serene and even froze over which was a gorgeous sight. The owners of this property are very accommodating, clean, and responsive. It was a great experience and I highly recommend it.
