  • 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."

  • Awesome place to relax away from home

    "We came to Manchester-by-the-Sea after 5 days in New York City. This location was the polar opposite of where we had been. It was perfect for us. After a week in a cramped hotel room, it was excellent for the three of us to have our own space in this lovely home. The two bedrooms were fantastic and it was also nice to have a living room to meet up in for mornings and end of day.The laundry was also a plus. It was great to not have to go home with all dirty clothes! Maureen was awesome about giving suggestions as to places to go for our needs. She was quick to answer our questions and give information. This was the perfect location to base our Massachusetts week from. It was an easy drive to Gloucester for our Whale Watch Cruise and to Salem to sail on the Schooner Fame. The house was close to the beach which had incredible sunrises and sunsets. (The mosquitoes however were quite large, so I do suggest that anyone who goes takes insect repellent with them.)"

  • Lovely Location, lovely everything!

    "My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at this wonderful apartment. We had a fantastic time and walked everywhere from Old Town, up to Five Corners and enjoyed the strolls throughout the neighborhood and shops in town. The apartment had absolutely everything that you could want and the kitchen was especially well stocked with all the essentials, including organic olive oil and wonderful spices! The colors in the main rooms were bright, cheerful and "happy" and the large windows offered a nice, cooling breeze. I would highly recommend. The only amenity that I would add would be a little seating area by the apartment door to offer a cozy private outdoor space for guests. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!"

  • Everything you could ever want!!

    "My husband and I, along with our daughters (almost 10 and 6 1/2), just spent the most fabulous week vacationing in this home! While our family is only 4, and the house sleeps 8, we were able to have a balanced week of family and friends visiting or felt perfectly comfortable just being a foursome. The amenities within the house are beyond comparison. The fully stocked kitchen (gorgeous place settings and serving pieces, french press and regular coffee maker, high-end pans/pots, new grill, etc...) was perfect for my chef husband and brother-in-law to make amazing meals for us while we sat in beautiful indoor or outdoor dining settings, overlooking a phenomenal sunset! The views were indescribable! We also had a movie night in the living room that had the most comfortable couches. The beds were also very comfortable; had high-quality sheeting, and down-comforters. I loved that there was an extra door between our daughters bedroom and the living room so we could get them to bed without closing their bedroom door. And all that I've described is nothing when you start to talk about the two beaches, kayaks, and paddleboards. We had so much fun! The beaches were fully of discovery as well...horseshoe crabs, sea urchins, sea glass, and lots of little hermit crabs...hours were spent climbing the rocks. Each day the girls became more daring. And even going down to the beach, beyond using my own beach cart, there were new beach chairs, towels, sand toys, and a beach umbrella. Then, when we would would come home in the afternoon, there were the perfect toys. Not only was there ping pong, but we played some old-fashioned board games (Life was a big hit) and Twister. The outdoor swings were a big hit too among the adults to sit and relax. I could continue to gush...My family and I cannot wait to go back! Thank-you to Karen for thinking of everything!"
