Boasting stunning views only imaginable from a home with direct water frontage, Spindrift, a 4+ bedroom, 2+ bath home located in Rockport’s lovely South End is the perfect location for rest and relaxation. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a “Spindrift” is “spray blown from the crests of waves by the wind,” a sight you will no doubt be used to seeing by the end of your stay in this gorgeous property! When you arrive at the immaculate, centrally air conditioned home, step into the “Prow” room, relax on the comfy seating, and take advantage of the large screen HDTV/VCR/DVD setup, the crisp stereo system, and the high-speed WiFi. For the artists, photographers, and nature lovers, the “Prow” room contains two walls of glass sliding doors that open up onto a deck boasting panoramic 270 degree views of the manicured lawn, Straitsmouth Island, Rockport’s historic Thatcher Island, and Gap Cove. The main floor also contains a dining area with a large round table and a woodburning stove, a kitchen that the chef in your group will appreciate, complete with a dishwasher, two ovens, a microwave, and custom wood counters, and, last but certainly not least, a living room with a beautiful fireplace and plenty of seating. Off of the main hall, you will discover a half bath and a queen bedroom suite with a full bath and a 50 inch plasma HDTV/DVD/stereo setup. Just through the queen bedroom is another bedroom with twin beds, a fireplace, and a TV. Ascend to the second floor to find the king master bedroom, which also boasts a large LCD HDTV, DVR, a DVD player, and amazing views. Additionally, you will find another bedroom with twins and waterviews, and a full bath complete with a tub and shower. Any young adults in your party will love Spindrift’s bonus sleeping space located atop the garage, complete with twin beds, a toilet, sink, TV, microwave and mini fridge. The house's layout makes it great for two families vacationing together; one family can be downstairs, the other upstairs. Hardy swimmers can cool off in the large, naturally protected tide pool nestled in the property's sea rocks, which remains as the tide goes out. Spindrift boasts a state-of-the-art composite Timbertech deck along with a wide array of high-end teak deck furniture, including a stunning teak extension dining table with a 9 foot tall stainless steel umbrella, 8 reclining teak and brass chairs, side tables, a deluxe 6 foot long teak bench, and an adjustable sun lounger! For those who enjoy relaxing and being pampered, take advantage of the luxury massaging reclining chair and two remote controlled adjustable twin beds (raise your head for breakfast in bed or enjoying TV), and 4 premium movie channels in the cable lineup! Old Garden Beach is 0.8 miles away, and Cape Hedge Beach is only 1.5 miles away. Drive to Good Harbor or Long Beach in less than 10 minutes.

    For the past six summers, we have rented lovely houses at old Garden Beach through AVH. Last summer was our first at Spindrift, and it was a perfect choice for my son, daughter, their families, and me (the mom/grandmother). The house was spacious but comfortable, the views spectacular, and Old Garden Beach walkable for six young children. The house and setting was wonderful to share with family and friends, and we plan to return again to Sprindrift for summer seven in Rockport in building wonderful family memories! We highly recommend!

    For seven summers, my daughter, son, spouses, and now six children have been joining me for a week's rental in Rockport. This summer, we were able to spend two weeks at Spindrift with the reduced rate due to the house construction next door. It was an unexpected and wonderful gift! Spindrift's generous and comfortable accommodations, spectacular views, lovely atmosphere and setting (walkable to Old Garden Beach, Gap Cove, etc.) make it the perfect spot for family, friends, and memorable days and gatherings. The house construction next door caused no problem, and we were most grateful for the extra week. We all recall Spindrift's magnificent views, setting, and family memories throughout the year. We plan to return and highly recommend. P.S. AVH and the handyman are always on hand and most helpful if there is a question or a need! Thanks all!

    Spindrift has been our family gathering place in Rockport for the past seven years, and we continue to be grateful for its location, views, and amenities. It's wonderful for entertaining, families with children, and picturesque views of the sunrise and sunset, majestic ocean and rocks, Twin Lighthouses on Thatcher Island, Straitsmouth Island, and walks to Gap Cove, Old Garden Beach, and even Bearskin Neck! This year we viewed the very full moon over the ocean, and a brilliant double rainbow arching the ocean and land after a late afternoon shower! Truly ship ahoy and enjoy!

    • Manager Responded on 7/17/2013

      We are so incredibly pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed another stay at Spindrift, and in the surrounding area! We hope to continue to serve you and your family for many years to come!

    Each summer for over eight years, our intergenerational family of grandparent, parents, and kiddos look forward to "Ship Ahoy Spindrift!" - and each year the blessings have been abundant. The house, location, views, amenities and more lend to a memorable time - from the beautiful sunrises to amazing sunsets, the majestic ocean views and rocks to the space and comfort of the house, the lovely strolls along Marmion Way or to the beach or town, and the list goes on. Truly a gem!

    • Manager Responded on 7/7/2014

      We're so glad we've been able to help you and your family enjoy wonderful vacation experiences over the last 8 years, and we sincerely hope next year we can extend our streak to 9!! It makes us happy knowing that we can help families like yours make lasting memories and enjoy Cape Ann's beauty! Have a wonderful rest of your year, and we hope to see you next summer!

    If we had one word to describe Spindrift for our family, it would be "ideal!" From the accommodations, to the locations, to the views, it's all spectacular! We've rented eight summers through AVH at Old Garden Beach, and 2009 was our fourth time at Spindrift. It continues to provide a perfect setting for family memories!

    • Manager Responded on 7/8/2009

      Dear Christine and family, We are very glad that you enjoyed your week's (plus) stay at Spindrift. It truly is a wonderful property in a lovely spot. And you are the perfect guests! Looking forward to next year...the whole AVH staff.

    Our family has been renting Spindrift for a week's gathering these past summers, and we all love the house, lovely location, and magnificent views. We were invited to a wedding in Rockport and were so pleased that the owner rented it for the weekend. It was wondrous to view Spindrift, the ocean, rocks, etc. in winter, and we even had a light snow send off on our Sunday departure. The house, location, views were all spectacular, and the children, family, and I continue to recount the magnificent memories.

    • Manager Responded on 12/10/2008

      Thank you so much for your continous (are we going on 8 visits to Cape Ann?) support of Atlantic Vacation Homes! We are so glad to have you as a member of the AVH family, and very gratified that you remain pleased and satisfied. We look forward to your next visit this summer.

    John D from Averill Park, NY recommends this vacation rental

    The house is spacious with areas for privacy. We spent most of our time on the glorious deck which is literally a few feet from the water. Watch fishing/lobster boats, sunrise, water birds, and beautiful ocean. The King bedroom invites you to watch the stars, sunrises and hear the surf. Most rooms do. From the upstairs bath you can see the ocean from a window in the tub/shower! House is nicely equipped with linens, towels, kitchen amenities, beach chairs, deck furniture.
    The owner was extremely gracious in addressing any concerns we had before our visit.

    Our wish list includes: trim the tree on left in driveway to better accommodate two cars. Prefer traditional twin beds in downstairs bedroom. Fix wireless connection of computer in King room. Explain huge hot tub in yard. Describe access of "swim from the property". The bedroom above the garage needs revision, including creating pleasant access.
    And Really? We'd do it all again.
    Great Property. We're planning our return!

    • Manager Responded on 12/13/2013

      We are delighted that you and your family had such a pleasant stay at Spindrift! Your recommendations were promptly passed on to the homeowner, who is actively working on updating the property for next summer. Thank you for your constructive feedback.

    Judy and Dick R from Voorheesville, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We practically lived on the outside deck, enjoying the water view and watching the boats and lobstermen. The lawn was perfect for games of catch and for running children. We used the room over the garage for one daughter and her friend, and they loved it. After they left, our son moved up there and was thrilled by the view. The prow room allowed us to see the moon shining on the water as we played games in the evening. There was plenty of space to be together or to have some alone time. And the kitchen was stocked with every pan or utensil or dish one could need. How wonderful to be able to spend time in such a beautiful but comfortable home!We were also happy to be able to walk to Rockport village, and to be near such nice beaches - we especially enjoyed the Rockport side of Long Beach. Thank you for your assistance in placing us in such a great setting.

    a guest from Cherry Hill, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    What can I say - Location, location, location! You can't get closer to the ocean than this! House was very well equipped - everything in place and very comfortable. Pinball machine was a fun diversion, along with the multitude of television sets. The real show was sitting in the Prow room watching the ocean and listening to the waves crash against the rocks. Quiet neighborhood and private space. Detailed notes left by the owner covered all the basics. What I really liked is that this home felt like a step back in time. While not "modern" in the sense of granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, etc, it had every convenience necessary to make the stay fun and no-hassle. I'm sure the house could accomodate many people, but it's cozy enough for just couples. My only regret in writing this review is that other people may catch on to this great getaway.

    Spindrift continues to be a gem for a family of five adults (one being the grandparent) and six children, 11 1/2 and under. The views are magnificent and the rocks and spacious yard are a child's delight! Gap Cove is around the corner for more exploring, and Old Garden Beach, and Rockport Village are all within walking distance. Spindrift has greatly blessed family, relatives, friends, and me once again!

    Not close enough to beaches with 5 young children..both walking & driving.

    Gale T from Albany, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We contacted AVH last year needing a place that was handicapped accessible. When they suggested Spindrift we thought it would be a great choice. Unfortunately it was not wheelchair accessible and created some problems. Even though there were difficulties
    we still had a wonderful time.

    • Manager Responded on 8/17/2011

      Dear Gale, We are sorry for your difficulties with the layout of Spindrift. As you probably remember, Cape Ann being a historic area, with homes that are of varying vintages, we happen to have no homes that are officially handicapped accessible. We recommended Spindrift soley for the reason that there is a bedroom and full bathroom on the main floor, which was at the time of our discussions, your main concern. I think in the future we need to be more specific and should concentrate on newer construction and get the dimensions of all doorways etc. We try very hard to accommodate all of our valued guests of which you are one. I would love to speak with you further about what we can do to make your stay perfect in the future! Sincerest Regards, Claire MacCrate and AVH staff

    We all enjoyed the magnificent views from Spindrift. The house is spacious and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped. However,we didn't come to the beach to live behind bolted windows and doors that might open onto the ocean and its lovely breezes! We had to rely on the air-conditioning - a major drawback. The room over the garage was not as advertised but shabby and uncomfortable nor was there a pull-out bed in the prow room as stated in the description.

    Linda S from Plano, TX recommends this vacation rental

    You could not ask for a better location then Spindrift. This house is on the water, private, and spacious enough to allow a houseful of people to still find a quiet spot to relax. Its also a great value other homes that offer this much space and beach front location are often double the price. The flip side of this coin is the condition of the property. The AC is not able to cool the entire house, we were there during a heat wave and the upstairs bedrooms were not comfortable. Additionally, the refrigerator was unable to keep up with heat and we had issues with maintaining perishables. Overall condition is rundown, towels and linens are worn, screens are ripped and sliding doors do not slide making outside access very difficult esp. for the kids. This property gets a A+ for location, and a C+ for condition but for overall value I think it was priced quite fairly for a B+.

      We thank you for the constructive criticism, and we have taken it to heart. As for the condition of the property, the sliding doors have been repaired and all of the linens and towels have been replaced. Regarding your other comments, during extreme conditions, the Air Conditioning sometimes cannot sustain the coldest temperatures for an extended duration due to intense demands. Additionally, if the refrigerator is opened too often/kept open too long during these extreme conditions, it will similarly begin to operate under its peak performance. All of that being said, we're glad that you enjoyed the property and that you and your family had quality time to relax and enjoy Cape Ann's beautiful beaches! You really cannot ask for a better located home than Spindrift. We hope you and your family decide to return to Cape Ann again soon!

    We loved Rockport and Spindrift was a wonderful home. The location was perfect, the giant yard was a hit with the kids, the views were spectacular we hope to return next year!

    a guest from New Fairfield, CT recommends this vacation rental

    The house was clean and full of necessities and comforts. We had the pleasure of seeing a nor'easter in action. Spectacular view even in the rain. Location is superb, close to beach and town. The house itself is a bit run down. There was a cracked window
    in the bathroom. During a rain storm, the roof leaked enough to require a pail to catch the water. The apartment over the garage is small, stuffy, and dark. We did not use it. Overall we enjoyed our stay but felt for the amount we were paying, the house should
    have been in better condition although it was clean.

    Harry S from Lyndhurst, OH recommends this vacation rental

    Terrific location. Wonderful that the porch was improved and the new furniture is fabulous. Basic issue is house needs a good cleaning. Lot's of spider webs and lot's of bugs. Sitting on couch in family room we had cockroaches more than several times. There's scotch tape on the ceiling of the "dining room" (next to kitchen area) that could easily be removed. Finally, we were really suprised at the extent of the construction activity. Every morning at 7 AM it started up; anyone sleeping in front (streetside) of house was awakened.

    All that said, we enjoyed our holiday and will be in touch about something for next year.
