Spacious home with great views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed their stay at the very spacious beach house. Phyllis is a great host and was very responsive and friendly. She recommended an excellent place for pizza after our long trip to Gloucester. The beach is just a short walk and there is an great place for ice cream just a block away. The porch and decks are excellent places to visit with family, relax, and enjoy the view of the beach and ocean. It's an excellent place for large family reunion, and is large enough to allow you to find a private place even with a crowd. You'll find everything you'll need to enjoy the stay. I highly recommend staying at the beach house and will use it again on our next trip to Gloucester.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for my daughters wedding weekend. We checked in on Thursday Dec. 8th. Her wedding was Friday the 9th. The house was 4 minutes from the venue. There was so much room and it had everything you could ever want. The views were spectacular, she took all of her photos right from the side of the property. Phyliss was so kind to my daughter who had a lot of planning and organizing to do as her husband is military and he was away. She bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and offer us what ever she could to make the house work for us. We rented the entire place, including a seperate apartment attached to the house for the bride and groom. We spent the entire weekend in Gloucester and enjoyed all of its beauty and charm. This was a wedding my family and friends will never forget and the house was a huge part of that. Can't wait to come back!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, big, clean home. My 14 person family stayed there for the weekend and had an amazing time. The views were great as well. Our host had minimal interaction with us, but was always there if we needed her making great recommendations.

My entire family wants to come back again during a warmer time!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous! It was large enough that those in my family not in the area could stay together to celebrate a special birthday event. My group of 12 ranged from ages 18 to 50+, so the back sunroom turned into the younger-group’s room while the adults visited in the front living room during downtime. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds are, and the seating in the living room is comfortable with plenty of seating. We especially loved the window seats and all those easy access porches. Good Harbor is our favorite beach and to be able to wake up to see and hear the beach and marshes from all bedrooms with so many porches was lovely, and a walk around the beach and backshore each day was perfect. We also walked the quick walk to Charlie’s Place for breakfast. (I’ve been going to Charlie’s Place for years when I visit the area, and lunch and dinner are also good – lobster roll - yum ). Phyllis who showed us the house was sincere with her offer for us to call her with any need, but the house, and especially the kitchen, is so well equipped there was no need. I will most definitely come back to this house, but I have a funny feeling I’ll have to plan well and look long-term as this house will book fast. I’m so pleased it was available for this family event as it was perfect!

Gracious and Comfortable Home-Views Incredible

  • 5 of 5

The large house overlooks the beautiful shoreline and Gloucester beaches, Views from all windows facing water were amazing, full moon reflected in the ocean and inlet adjacent to house were beyond beautiful- even got a picture of moon reflected in water worthy of postcard.

Front porch , parking area, and interior of house met all our needs smoothly and easily. This is a great house, in a beachside location.

All of house was very clean -we five women noted that. One of 2nd floor bathrooms not great-so some showered in 2nd floor ensuite.

This house has room for all guests to be together-or quietly and comfortably apart. Dining room great for eating--and playing games.

Living room soft and easy, room off kitchen with all the windows the best room in house- views on three sides!

Wonderful old home- with many updates, in spectacular location! Our group of five women loved it!!!

Great Return Stay

  • 5 of 5

Lucky Sands is a great family beach house. This is a return visit for us, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house is especially good for mixed generations, and casual vacationing. We appreciate the new updates,

and as before, appreciate the responsiveness of Phyllis and her family. Highly recommend!
