  • We really enjoyed our stay in Manchester-by-the-Sea and never went near the water!

    "Because we came to MBTSea for work reasons, our POV is slightly skewed. Working 14-16 hour days on the North Shore presents its challenges. This location was good for my roomate and I as we never traveled more than 25 minutes to all the locations we had to work. Because of where the house is located, in a neighborhood, it was a good place to sleep during the day when we worked late. Because its only two minutes to downtown we could easily roll out and get coffee, or breakfast, or groceries or supplies at the hardware store. Working long days we took full advantage of the hot tub. Bo was friendly and respectful of our privacy at the same time. We didn't spend much time at the house, but we wanted for nothing. It was great to be able to do our laundry while living away from home for six weeks. And the off season pricing was great for our budget. We will absolutely recommend Bo's place, or claim it for ourselves, should we have a need for work in the area again!"

  • Great house for family vacation

    "We had a perfect week on PI at Days Serene. We were very happy with the house, I will give an honest review because I think that informed owners and guests have the best experience! Pros: LOCATION is great, walk to basin, river beach, and ocean beach. The neighborhood was lively on Friday & Saturday nights but quiet the rest of the week. PETS allowed. Dogs can go to the basin beach and lounge on the porch. there is yard space on the side of the house where we tied our dogs out while we were home, so they could watch the goings on in the neighborhood. Unfortunately previous guests allowed their pups to poop there and did not clean it up - pigs. I did my best to clean it all up. SPACE! So much space. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths plus outdoor shower, large open living/dining room, large porch, lots of parking. COMFORT: Beds were great, comfy couch and chairs, family style dining area, cafe seating in the breakfast area, plenty of hot water, AC is fabulous. AMENITIES: cable TV, wifi, beach chairs, awesome wagon to haul your stuff to the beach. Nice big fridge with cold water dispenser and an ice maker! Full size washer and dryer - don't be afraid to let your kids play in the basin muck at low tide! HOSTS: Dick checked in through messaging & phone and offered to come by the house if we needed anything. I didn't bring king sized sheets, since I misread the description and thought that the master had a queen. Maureen came over to drop off a nice clean set of king sheets. Thanks so much! I will list a couple minor 'cons' for those who might have particular hang-ups! ANTS: Perhaps an unfortunate result of having an older cottage on ground level :( we hid our food in the microwave, fridge, and oven because anything on the counter or in cabinets had ants crawling on it. KITCHEN: the kitchen had all the necessities, except for a dishwasher. so the small amount of counter space was cluttered with our dish rack. Any dishes we took out of the cabinet had to be re-washed before use - I would blame the previous guests not the hosts! We found some not-so-clean plates and silverware. The cabinets are kinda older, countertops not level due to the cottage settling. The oven is located on the other side - not the typical 'work triangle' but at least there is an oven! Who uses an oven in a beach cottage anyway? The kitchen was fine for us, but if you're looking for a gourmet work area you might not be thrilled. Overall great stay, thanks!"

  • Quaint, clean property just outside downtown Rockport.

    "The house was very clean when we arrived. There were enough bedrooms to accommodate our group of 3 adults and 2 children. The stairs were steep and narrow, making them tricky for our youngest child (4 years old) or for adults to navigate in the middle of the night to access the only bathroom (located on the ground level). Otherwise the house met our needs well. The house comes with all the necessary vacation accessories (grill, beach chairs/toys, beach towels, etc.). The new front-loading washer and dryer was a huge plus. We enjoyed our stay!"
