  • Clean, comfortable family vacation home close to Good Harbor Beach

    "We were 4 adults and 2 young children who live about an hour from Gloucester. The house worked very well for us. It was clean and spacious. You can see the ocean from the upstairs bedroom. There is a small back yard with an outdoor shower, table for 6, lawn chairs and an outdoor grill. We often left the back door open and the children moved freely between outside and in. The outdoor shower was a tremendous feature after trips to the beach. It was great to get the sand off everyone. We went to the beach everyday - sometimes twice a day. The beach is a ten minute walk. We carried a lot of gear to the beach so we would usually take the car to drop people and gear off. Also, there were a number of beach toys and boogie boards in the backyard that we used. There is plenty of room to park cars at the house. The kitchen and kitchen tools were adequate. We mostly cooked and ate at home. There are 2 large supermarkets within a mile of the house, so keeping the house provisioned was simple. The owner recommended a couple of local restaurants, "Causeway" and the "Lobster Pool" which we enjoyed. I would recommend this house to families with children who like the beach. The Cape Ann area is beautiful and there is a lot to explore. However, we spent most of our time enjoying Good Harbor Beach."

  • Magical home in beautiful Manchester!

    "We had a wonderful stay at this Manchester-by-the-Sea home. The house is exactly as promised - lots of space, beautiful bedrooms, everything anyone would need for a family of four (or more). We arrived to find everything immaculate. This was a "turn key" experience. What an amazing neighborhood - so quiet and cute, but very close to downtown. Singing Beach (about a mile from the house) is unbelievably beautiful - with the beach passes, beach toys, chairs and umbrella, we were ready to go! We had a few questions during our stay and the owners were immediately responsive. The weather wasn't always perfect and that didn't bother us a bit! The house is so comfortable, we were able to just relax, read and watch a movie with the kids. I would highly recommend this home to anyone with a family - it's clean, roomy, convenient and homey. Our girls are 8 and the home was just perfect for them. Manchester-by-the-Sea is a perfect alternative to the very busy Cape. It's a very nice "hometown" feeling - with easy access to a gorgeous beach and delicious restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

  • Comfortable, clean and convenient family house

    "We try to spend a week on Plum Island every summer to be close to my parents, who live in Newburyport and have a beach vacation at the same time. This was by far the family's favorite of all our rentals! With 3 adult children and a couple of their friends, we have decided that 2 bathrooms is a must, and the outdoor shower was a delightful added bonus. This year, my extended family was all in town for a family celebration and we were able to have several big family gatherings at the house. The kitchen is spacious, extremely well equipped, a pleasure to cook in and perfect for a big family. I loved having the family gather around the breakfast bar and nibble on appetizers as I prepared the meal. There are plenty of options for everyone to sit and eat or relax; there is a big table on the deck with a view of the harbor and for those who prefer, the screened in front porch is another perfect gathering place with its deep, comfy wicker furniture. The upper deck is great for watching sunsets or having morning coffee. This house truly does sleep 8 adults. All the beds are really comfortable, even the trundle bed in the 4th room, (which my full-grown son really appreciated after being stuck in a bunk bed or a rickety pull-out couch in other houses). Arlene was a pleasure to work with, responsive and accommodating. We also appreciated all the little extras Arlene adds to make sure her guests are comfortable such as candles, soap and even shampoo in the bathrooms, plenty of towels and nice linens, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen including supplies of paper goods, coffee and condiments. The outside grill is huge and works well and there is even beach gear; chairs, umbrellas and bags for your convenience. The only negative about this house was that we had to leave! We can't wait to come back!"

  • Perfect Marblehead Gem!!

    "Our family was in Marblehead for a week-end wedding event and we couldn't have stayed in a nicer setting. The condo was immaculate upon our arrival. Spacious enough yet cozy and accommodating for our group. The location was fabulous. . . just a block away from the downtown Marblehead area. Enjoyed many trips to Shubies!! Peter was friendly and very helpful- wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this rental!"
