traveler reviews for this rockport house rental

Lovely cottage that is better than the Vineyard

Review submitted: July 15, 2013   Date of arrival: June 22, 2013

Compact home with great views from rooms and special porch that seems to catch any available breezes. Great for family gatherings, though note that all toilets are upstairs, so if little kids or older guests you might want to be careful. Nice big dining table that could accommodate big family dinners with nice gas grill outside if you want to keep things cool. One lucky and very nice aspect of this home is the air condition that really works and is necessary on hot days. If possible I would rent again. A wonderful area with friendly neighbors. Enjoy.

Fantastic Home, Location, Owners.

Review submitted: August 20, 2012   Date of arrival: August 11, 2012

This was a fantastic home for rent for our family of 3 adults and 4 kids. The property is gorgeous, with wonderful views from practically every bedroom and 2 killer porches. Lightning storms are a wonder to behold. There are 2 entry points to rocky beaches ~1 block away, good for scrambling/tidepooling (bring water shoes). For sandy beaches, Plum Cove is a 5 min drive away and the bigger beaches of Wingaersheek, Good Harbor and Crane's beaches are about 15 min away.

The home has great amenities (new bathrooms, washer/dryer/dw/NG stove/refrig) which make it super convenient for a home away from home. Not why you go away, but certainly makes it more civilized!

Finally, the owners were fantastic. The recommended restaurants were also recommended by our local friends (and TripAdvisor).

We loved this quiet gem, which was located close to so many things for all of us to do (key since we had a 3,6,9, and 12 yo!).

The only thing to note is this house may not be the best if one in your party is handicapped - there's ~2 flights of walk/steps up to the home, as that's how it affords its great views. Our 3 yo and my 75 yo dad had NO problems navigating it, but not the best if you're in a walker/wheelchair. For everyone else, this is the perfect place!

A picture-perfect setting

Review submitted: August 14, 2012   Date of arrival: August 4, 2012

The house was beachy and fabulous; just what we were looking for. Perfect for family and friends to gather and watch an amazing sunset, relax on the porch, enjoy a meal. Very well equipped and comfortable. A climb up to the house but once you get there you won't want to leave! But you will, there's tons to see and do nearby.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway
