What Our Guests Are Saying
“This house was really quite perfect! It was convenient, comfortable, clean and cozy! I could have been happy just relaxing at the house admiring the view which was even more beautiful in person! The place was surprisingly well equipped. Communication with the property manager was easy and always responded quickly!! I looked through many properties before booking this one ; I would book it again. We all loved it. You need to see it to believe it!”
“One of the best houses we’ve ever rented, surely a hidden gem. House was clean, nicely decorated and you can’t beat the porch overlooking the water. Location was central to everywhere we wanted to go. Would definitely stay here again.”
“We’ve stayed at many Cape Ann coastal property rentals and this was the best. Won’t stay anywhere else if we don’t have to. Property was as described in ad. Clean, well cared for, everything you need.”
“We had a great time staying at this beach retreat! The two bedrooms were perfect for our family of three. The house was a perfect location — very close to the beach, a beautiful park with a playground and great coffee shops! We stayed for 5 days and would gladly return for a longer stay.”
