Completely renovated home. New to the 2014 season. Great for families. Rent just one town-home or rent the entire town-home w/ friends or family. Three fabulous decks each w/an incredible ocean or Pigeon cove view.
Each residence has three bedrooms (two large bedrooms and bedroom/office). Office can be used as a third bedroom. Two spacious bathrooms. Kitchen, living room, dining area, open and spacious. Nine foot floor to ceiling windows in the second floor town-home. Safe area for children as on a private way. Home is open to cove and ocean on two sides.
This home is furnished beautifully with lovely furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and the best views of the ocean from each porch (3) (2nd floor). I loved watching the lobster men go out each morning and return with their catch. Very quiet property. Nice walk from the house along the rocky coast (a little challenging on the rocks). Very clean and well maintained!
Maureen recommended the walk in the nearby park, the walk along the coast and the Cape Ann Museum. I did all three and enjoyed them immensely. The best restaurants are in Gloucester, Essex, and Annisquam...only a short drive away!
This house was in a beautiful setting overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean as well as the working Pigeon Cove Harbor. This is an up and down two-family, newly built in 2014. Maureen was easily accessible during booking process, and during our stay. Very clean. Located at far end of Rockport; car is needed to most everywhere. You can walk, but beaches, etc. only accessible by road which is curvy, hilly, with busy traffic and would be a long walk. About a 30-minute drive to Gloucester. Two parking spaces per unit.
The description of this house lacks some information needed, as I describe below.
Our group consisted of six adults, and description of this unit is for six, however, there is an additional charge for the sixth person.
Thankfully, I chose the top level of this house because downstairs has little view. The bottom level does not have a front deck, only side and rear, which has an obstructed view of the water from the side and just a yard view in the back. There is a high breakwater wall that obstructs the lower level's view.
Overall design of unit as it functions or was described has minor annoyances: Freezer does not open fully; too close to wall. Front bedroom has queen bed with beautiful view; when the sun comes up, the drapes are inadequate, you need eye masks to sleep. To use the hall door to this room fully, you must move the bed at an angle to get around it. Small closet, tall, narrow dresser.
Back bedroom, double bed and no futon (as described); two adults in this bed was not comfortable(could fit queen). Backyard view, large closet, desk/chair.
Third bedroom in back, king bed, backyard view, side porch with bistro set for 2, ocean view. No closet, but wall-mounted rod and shelf for hanging clothes over a dresser.
Larger bath has tub/shower, two sinks, little counter space and toilet. Tub/shower has one shelf for toiletries, not adequate for 4. Smaller bath, shower only, adequate for 2.
Side porch seats 4. Front narrow deck seats 4. Both use cushions; when rains cannot be used. LR seats 5. Kitchen table seats 6, island seats 4.
Prepare to shop for essentials: salt/pepper, paper goods, disposable grill pans. Grill in backyard, shared utensils which only lower level had utensils.
Better info/map of beaches/town needed, as you must use road to get around. Needed flashlights when power went out for 1 hr. which Maureen allowed 1 hr. late checkout. Overall, unit very good value but design function for 6 lacking.
This house is amazing! We lucked out and woke up to a great sunrise every day on our 9 day stay. This house has a view for everyone; expansive ocean, rocky coastline or a working fishing cove. There is a deck to enjoy all of these views (or enjoy sun/shade at any point in the day). The house is nicely appointed with very comfortable beds. There is nothing like sitting at the kitchen island in the morning with a coffee watching the boats leave Pigeon Cove and feeling the ocean air rush through the house (pulling in the sweet smell of cedar from the siding). We found ourselves bringing home takeout food for lunch (usually from the Lobster Pool, just up the street) so we could sit on the deck and enjoy the sun and stare at the glistening water. It is extremely quiet at the house, tucked in just off the main road and only 1 mile to town (a nice walk in the morning for homemade doughnuts at Brothers Brew coffee shop). There are a ton of beaches within a ten minute drive from the house and it is located in the heart of some of the most amazing sightseeing. Maureen checked in with us during the week to make sure everything was going well and was always reachable by phone/text. We hated to leave this beautiful house and look forward to coming back next year!! Thank you Maureen!
We selected this spot for a family gathering since our children live in different states. What a wonderful place with beautiful views. The owner was very welcoming and the house was immaculate. We had everything we needed. There are so many places to explore in Rockport. We particularly enjoyed hiking along the coastal rocks and Pigeon Cove is authentic. Absolutely no complaints. This was our first trip to Rockport, but we will be back.
Whenever we rent a place, we are always a little nervous as to what we will get. Photos only tell so much of the story. While we have generally had good luck on vrbo, this is definitely the best place we've ever rented. We thought the photos might make this place look nicer than it is, but it was actually opposite. The beautiful photos on here don't do it justice.
Every detail of this condo was thoughtfully crafted. From the recessed lighting to the beautiful balconies with picturesque views to the open concept layout, the tall ceilings, we were thrilled. We even took home some ideas to consider for our own house.
The three decks all have different sun exposure and views of the ocean and the marina.
The location is ideal. We biked to town easily, we hiked the rocks with incredible back drops of the ocean. We drove to Gloucester and Newburyport for different activities.
The owners are very responsive and accommodating which was very helpful for last minute questions.
Would definitely recommend!
Even though we had lots of rain and mostly chilly weather, the condo was perfect for our group of 6 adults! The large windows provided lovely views of the stormy skies and sea. The kitchen was well appointed so that we could cook up some great dinners. The beds were comfortable and all of the rooms and living room were nicely furnished. One suggestion would be to add some hooks in the back bedroom to hang clothing as there is no closet. If the lower unit is rented, you need to be aware of noise levels. Maureen is very accommodating and had lots of great suggestions for things to do locally., restaurants, etc. There's a beautiful park within walking distance that we thoroughly enjoyed. The old water-filled quarry and rocky seascape took our breaths away. We drove into Salem and took the train into Boston. Very easy to get around from here! We highly recommend this rental! Thanks Maureen, if we come back to this area we would absolutely rent your place again!
Home is located at the edge of the Rockport Breakwater. Pigeon Cove is on one side and the ocean is on the other side. Second floor residence has expansive views of Pigeon Cove and ocean. Great place for families. Located on a private way.
