This ocean front condo is situated at the end of Gap Head, one of the most beautiful spots in all of Rockport. There is no other property like this one. It is completely surrounded by the ocean, looking out over two islands, three active lighthouses and one stunning peaceful cove. Lobster boats amble through the 'gap' in front of the house which is perched high on pink granite rocks. All this and quite simply, no people.
The entire condo was recently renovated with an eye toward making it more open and light.
The new kitchen is a dream. Inspired by restaurant kitchens, it is beautifully functional with a large custom stainless work space and ceramic cooktop. Open shelving in lieu of cabinets makes accessing ingredients and cookware fast and easy. Friends can join you at the counter so you don't have to take yourself out of the action as your cooking. Other features of the redesign include stainless French door refrigerator and new Bosch dishwasher.
Moreover it is completely open to the living room and the sea. I guarantee you have never cooked or dined with a more extraordinary view.
Somehow, its even more fabulous than before.
The main bathroom is also brand new, just completed in 2017. Features granite and stone.
The condo has a master bedroom with a queen bed. From it you can see the ocean and the island with its lighthouse. There is a door with access to the enormous porch.
Second bedroom has a new queen bed that is also a sofa. Its actually very comfortable. Second bedroom has its own private full bathroom.
Access to the freshly painted porch is through the living room or master bedroom.
The most amazing feature is an enormous (18x25') covered porch with full living room set and dining table. Comfortable outdoor sofa and chairs await you and your morning coffee.
Ocean views from living room, porch, master bedroom and kitchen. Please note the condo is on the second floor of the house, which makes the views even better and exceptionally private.
Most of the ocean front rentals this size are in town, on the harbor or on one of the town beaches.
It is extremely rare to find a small, affordable, ocean-front rental of this quality: on a quiet peninsula, completely surrounded by the sea. Perfectly private and utterly stunning. You will be captivated.

A few notes about this property.
This is a condo in a 3-unit house. I rent to folks who are considerate and on the low-key side. If you're looking for a place to party and have lots of guests please keep looking.
Gap Head is extraordinary for its sea sounds and captivating beauty and we're kind of protective of that.
Also, due the fact that the house is sited on the edge of a 30 foot rocky cliff, no children under 18 are allowed. No exceptions.
Pets and smoking are absolutely not allowed.
Rockport is a charming New England town. Rich with history, old houses and gorgeous gardens and beaches.
Garden Beach is within walking distance along ocean path (half a mile). Good Harbor beach is 2 miles down the road. Area is perfect for biking and walking, climbing and exploring. Rockport town center is one mile away and accessible by the same ocean path.
