This is a lovely one bedroom apt. that sleeps 4 comfortably. The bedroom has a queen size bed while the living room has sleeping for 2 more. It has a full kitchen, a nice back deck w/ bbq grill and picnic table for outside dining. There is an outside shower to rinse off after the beach. We have a few beach chairs for use at the beach and some beach toys as well. It is an easy walk to the beach (6/10 mile exactly) if you have a lot of gear, someone could drop off the family and then walk down to meet up at the beach.

About Carol Allen
We both grew up in NY state and visited this area after my sister and her husband moved here, we loved the beautiful scenery of the area and decided to move here to be near family.
Carol Allen purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Carol Allen chose Gloucester
We chose this property because of the location. It is only 1/2 mile to Good Harbor Beach, we can go out the door and have a beautiful walk/jog, bike ride, fish,swim, etc. without having to get in the car.

Met or Exceeded Expectations
Provided a great place for a 10 day stay. Carol is a very responsive and an overall great host. On-line (HomeAway) description and pics were true to our experience.
We have two teenagers so it was a tight fit with one bedroom but we managed fairly well. The window AC was key as it was a humid stretch while we were in town. The apartment was clean and kitchen in good working order. We ate breakfast, lunch, and a few dinners at the apartment. Outdoor grill was a nice touch and the back porch is a good place to hang-out. Carol has a friendly golden retriever "Charley" that can be a bit excitable and eager to play.
The walk to Good Harbor Beach was easy as well as evening walks along Bass Rocks via Atlantic Ave. Also, about a mile walk to downtown Gloucester which we did several times for dinner.
I am so glad you had an enjoyable stay and got out to enjoy the surrounding area.
Also glad you got to see your family in the area and go into Boston. Especially glad when you brought me back a couple cannollis. We definitely enjoyed them.
Thank you for taking good care of the apartment and leaving it in great shape.
Always a wonderful week!!
Hope to see you next summer!!!
it's always such a pleasure...
it's so quiet at night...
thanks for everything!
we had a wonderful week again!
So nice having you here and watching the kids grow. I enjoy having families make use of the apartment, enjoying the area and making memories. See you next year!
Had a great stay!
Apartment was exactly what we needed for a 10 day stay in Gloucester. Clean and cute. Will return. Thanks!
There to visit family in Danvers, MA
All was as expected, and Carol an accommodating host. Walk to Good Harbor Beach a bit deceptive. Charming and well appointed.
Clean and comfortable.
Carol and Jayme are great hosts; everything is provided that's needed for a comfortable stay. The apartment has plenty of space and kept clean both inside and out; and the location is close to many great restaurants and shopping.
Great Apartment, Perfect Location
My stay here was awesome! Carol gave me all the info I needed to get there, park, check in and make myself at home (keys, wifi password, etc.) and made herself available if I needed anything. The apartment is very clean, roomy, comfy bed, great kitchen, and the back deck area is great. The location is excellent, with easy access to the highway, downtown, the beach... Am very much looking forward to staying at Carol's again next summer!
The location is terrific, walk/jog the back shore, dine out at a variety of eating establishments, visit Rocky Neck Art Colony for local art as well as entertainment, and as mentioned previously, Good Harbor Beach is 1/2 mile away. There are several restaurants in Rocky Neck which offer live music and outside dining just over a mile from the house. There is a local farmers market and band concert one night a week, usually Thursdays at Stage Fort Park about 2 miles from house. Whale watch tours, sailboat charters, etc. located within a mile. There are also several other beaches in Gloucester, within a short drive.(Wingersheek, Niles Beach, Long Beach, etc) Our neighboring town of Rockport, MA is only 5 miles away with many shops, galleries and restaurants as well. Explore the entire North Shore and it's many quaint towns and villages such as, Marblehead, Salem, Manchester, Beverly, all an hour or less away with train stops in all of them.
For lobster lover's you can also buy fresh lobster right off the boat, down the hill from the house at Captain Joe's Lobster.
