About Phyllis Kennedy

Why Phyllis Kennedy chose Gloucester

Realization of a dream to buy this historic property at the corner of Bass Avenue and Good Harbor Beach. The name is inspired by just how lucky we feel to be the new owners and to share our home with you.

What makes this house unique

Gorgeous ocean and beach views from every room with just steps to Good Harbor Beach. Beautiful interior with wood accents throughout. Sit on the porch out front or have lunch on the picnic table in the yard. Room for the whole family to enjoy an amazing beach vacation.

Great place to relax with family

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay with family or friends. Lovely views, steps away from a great beach, lots of room to spread out. Well equipped, comfortable, easy to communicate with responsive owner. Great location close to grocery stores, restaurants in Gloucester. Lots of parking.

My family highly recommends Lucky Sands for a relaxed stay right on the beach.

Great House In A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for my group's needs. It was spectacular waking up with the beach view right out of our windows. Easily stroll to local coffee shop then back for a walk on the beach. Phyllis was easily contacted and helped with the few requests we had. Overall, a great place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Lucky Sands

  • 5 of 5

The location is superb and the views from the house couldn't be better! There was plenty of room for everyone and great to have lots of bathrooms. We really appreciated the fresh flowers and extra towels. Phyllis was there to welcome us and make us feel at home.

We would recommend the house for family get-togethers - being so near the beach is fantastic!

Best fun!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a terrific, multigenerational, family time. Room for everyone and spaces to be alone. Home is not in perfect condition, but the charm and nearness to the beach makes the old refrigerator unimportant. Various decks meant we could always find a sunny or shady spot. Morning coffee on the front porch was perfect. We all loved our special week away.
