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.

We had a wonderful 6 months in Rockport's FrontBeach rental property. The house is located in a quiet and friendly residential area. Rockport is a lovely town with lots of hiking opportunities along the beautiful coast line and some amazing nearby rock quarries. The house was a perfect get-a-way from our NYC condo.

This is a lovely home-no question.Recently redone everything is fresh and new.The house is done in soft muted shades of blues and greens and grays--very lovely.Downstairs once you come in from a rather small very tidy yard [a table & chairs for four and a grill-no real room for children to play]you enter a mud room-nicely appointed with beach rained steadily for the three days we were there so I am unable to say more than that about the items but they seemed nice.Through the mud room into an open type kitchen with a nice full size fridge /stove/oven /sink.There is a small island for use as a tabletop.The kitchen has a basic amount of kitchen ware/table ware.What is has is lovely and adequate but I would not consider it well equipped.If you like to cook or bake while you are on holiday this might not be the kitchen for you unless you bring your own items.Off the kitchen is a new lovely modern powder room and an open area which is a landing area for the stairs.I must say I found this staircase rather intimidating-I was very concerned about someone tumbling down.I would never be able to carry a discontented child up or down.I found the treads to be narrow [I wear a size 8.5 shoe].Off the kitchen is a comfortable living room with a small table that can seat four and a very modern large television .There is a tiny office off the living room.Upstairs a full bath-two bedrooms and a laundry room.The bedrooms are minimally furnished and have non-traditional mattresses.If you like foam type beds or hybrid type mattress setups you will most likely enjoy these.[sort of like Temper-Pedic ,I think] No one in our group was a fan.But they are lovely and new and the sheets were nice.We were on this holiday very early in May so many things were not open.We did not have an easy time reaching the rental company on any of our attempts.I am not certain the office was fully staffed early in May but when our entry code to get into the rental did not work-wewereintherain4awhile

We had such a wonderful experience from start to finish. Check-in for the house was seamless and easy. The hone was immaculate and so comfortable. We had plenty of space, comfortable beds and cozy furnishings. The location of the house was ideal. The street was quiet but only a quick walk to the beach and Bearskin Neck. Check out was also a breeze. Ideal renting experience!
