About the property

1 BR lower apt. in a 2-family home, 1/2 mile to Good Harbor Beach

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 but if you have a lot of gear, someone could drop off the family and then walk down to meet up at the beach. We do also have an older baby jogger available to use. It is in good working condition, just a little older model.

This rental is great for couple or two, or a small family that wants to get away and enjoy what the area has to offer without breaking the budget. It is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The rate is much better than a hotel room with more than double the space. We have a couple beach chairs for use at the beach. It is a family neighborhood so please be considerate after 10 pm. I have a 15 yr old niece that is sometimes available to babysit and has taken a babysitting course,but will need some notice to ensure availability.

Great Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

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!

We enjoyed our stay at Carol's bright and and sunny place.

  • 4 of 5

It was just as described. It had all that we needed for beach excursions and easy dinners outside. The kids loved playing in the back yard and on the patio.

We'd happily come back here the next time we're in Gloucester. Carol even kindly mailed us a toy that we had left behind. Thank you for the lovely visit.

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.

Car: recommended

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.
