Perfect location, amenities, and comfort for all!
Our friends (family with girls ages 7, 5, and 1) met us (with a 6 month old) at this house for a wedding weekend in the Boston area. It was the perfect stay for us! The owner was kind enough to find us a second pack 'n play so we didn't have to bring one, plus she set up all the gates in the house for safety for the little ones. We had a wonderful time with the easy walk to the beach, and even playing inside when the weather turned colder. The house is even lovelier than the pictures depict, with the recent renovations providing the most comfortable and convenient stay for our vacation. The neighbors were very welcoming, too, and the short drive to Bearskin Neck provided an excellent afternoon out (highly recommend the Red Skiff restaurant). Nearby grocery stores (and incredible ice cream) capped off the ease and relaxation of our trip. We'll definitely be staying here again the next time we're in the area!
Great place for family get-together
Our family of parents, two adult daughters, son-in-law, and two young grandchildren spent three days here during the Thanksgiving holiday. The house was more than large enough to accommodate all of us. We were able to cook a holiday dinner and other meals with ease. The kitchen(s) is well stocked with plenty of room for all of the groceries we brought with us. Also, if we wanted to go to a restaurant, there were many excellent choices nearby.
Even though it was late November, we spent a lot of time at the nearby beach. It is well-named Long Beach. We enjoyed long walks, bird watching, surfers, and kite flying. The grandchildren played in the sand and chased waves. Eventually, they were soaked and covered with sand, but the walk back was short, so it was easy to get them back to the house and into dry clothes quickly. The two washers and driers made short work of their wet things. If the weather had not been as nice as it was, there are two TVs with cable and video, WiFi, many movies, and lots of toys. The grandchildren did not even get out the toys they brought.
This house is very clean and scent free which we appreciated because some of us are sensitive. Shoes are off at the door. The bedding is comfortable, and the towels are plentiful and fluffy.
Throughout our stay we felt comfortable and at home in this house. When we arrived, we had a problem with the WiFi, so I emailed the owner. Even though it was Thanksgiving, she responded immediatley to resolve the problem. We appreciated the good service.
We would certainly welcome the chance to gather here again.
A fantastic experience at our "home" in Gloucester
My husband and I, two sons and their wives and three small grandchildren enjoyed a wonderful week. The owner of the property was great to deal with -- provided all the information we needed and was reachable by phone and e-mail if we were to have questions. The home was beautiful and the perfect layout for our family. The property was very clean and the amenities were perfect. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and we hope to spend more time there ourselves. The beach was beautiful and the city and area offered a lot of good restaurants and fun sightseeing places. The Fishermen's Memorial was impressive and we found beautiful shells and sea glass along the beach. We toured the Cape Pond Ice Company which was very interesting and fun! The location was ideal -- we could enjoy the city but also close to Salem, Ipswich and the train to Boston. We all highly recommend this property and hope to have a family vacation here again in the future.
Fabulous family fun
our family of 9 including old any young each had room to spread out and retreat to. The home was ideally suited to our family with young children. The children found toys to suit each of them neatly organized and ready to play while we adults were able to get all the set-up done. The beach was perfect for the children. The water was shallow for a long way out and the horseshoe shape allowed full eye contact from a comfortable lounge chair on the sand. There were many really good shopping and eating places. My favorite restaurant was Lat 43. The kids fav was the ice-cream, sub, pizza, candy store within every afternoon walking distance - even for the 3 year old. We had many family members visit during the week and the house made it comfortable to host large numbers of guests. We recommend this vacation for families who want to share memories for a lifetime.
Nice house, but no privacy
Any nice things about the house were overshadowed by the fact that the neighbors made us extremely uncomfortable. Luckily we're a very quiet family, but we still felt like a nuisance the entire time. There was no privacy at all. The neighbors made it perfectly clear from the moment we pulled up that they were watching us for the homeowner. We'd even see them looking in the windows, which completely freaked out my 89-year old grandmother. They never spoke to us, but they were always... around. It was unnerving. Because of the way the house is situated, there's a shared backyard with 3 other homes. We never cooked outside, let the children play outside, or even sat outside because neighbors would appear or just glare from the inside. It was just weird. I'm not sure what they would've done if were a big, fat, obnoxious drinking family!! We never heard from the homeowner during our stay or ever received any sort of check out requirements, so we took it upon ourselves to completely clean the house from top to bottom, wash linens, bring leftover food to a homeless shelter, take recyclables to a main center in a nearby town, and even clean out the in-house attached vacuum system (which looked like it had never been done before). Renter beware :(
Wonderful place to stay
We had our adult family gather together for a wedding and rented this wonderful home on Long Beach. This home was more than comfortable for eight of us. The owners are helpful and accomodating. Nice eating area and living area with open floor plan. Lovely master bedroom. Lovely deck that overlooks the beach. Close to grocery stores, other beaches, Rockport and Dunkin Donuts. We feel fortunate we found this gem. I do believe staying in this lovely home helped make this gathering special for all of us - one we will never forget. We have been coming to Long Beach for years when we visit Massachusetts. This was the first time we rented here. Early morning sunrise walks were great fun.
