About the Owner

Having represented my own home since 2008, I now provide vacation rental service for select owners of fine homes. It's a delight to help people enjoy Cape Ann and to offer guests and homeowners the kind of personable, quality care that engenders ease and peace of mind. My first career was as a senior executive in the retail industry.

Charming house, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5
This is a unique house with lots of space, comfortable and unique character, set aside in a relaxing patch of woods. Just down the street from beautiful coastline/state park and an amazing lobster shack, short drive from lots of beautiful beaches. We met a few other couples here for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. At one point we lost hot water, and Kathy was very responsive, showed up right away to arrange for a handyman to come by that same day and fixed it. Highly recommended and we would certainly return.
