Located in a quiet, leafy neighborhood, Family Tides offers convenience and comfort, just a half-mile to Gloucester's Good Harbor Beach.

Cathedral ceilings with skylights, large picture windows, and French doors to the deck illuminate the the open-plan main floor. Starting in the fully-applianced kitchen with a large center island, the space naturally flows into the dining area, the living room, and the family room beyond. There is a full bath downstairs as well as another upstairs, along with three bedrooms, including the "Kids' Room" with two sets of bunks. All of the bedrooms are newly equipped with AC units to stay cool on those warm summer days and nights. Outside, the large back deck is the perfect place to sit and relax with a cool drink while family and friends play in the large and verdant yard. After a day at the beach, rinse off using the new outdoor shower.

Beautiful home in Gloucester. Fully stocked and lots of room for everyone. I realized that many homes in New England don't have AC but it was really hot and humid when we stayed there...perhaps window AC units in the bedrooms.

We had a great time at the rental. It was clean, uncluttered with modern furnishings. The kitchen had more than enough glassware and plates, while still having plastic plates for the kids. The grill worked great. The only thing we’d change is a few small air conditioners in the bedrooms. The main area gets plenty of ventilation, but the bedrooms got very stuffy in the 87 degree heat. The locations was the best part. Long enough of a walk to the beach so the kids didn’t ask constantly to go to the water, but short enough of a walk that they could make the walk back easily. No traffic on the street and enough green space the neighbors were almost non existent.

We are glad to see that overall everyone had a great stay. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. This summer was rather warm, especially during the time of your visit. We will share with the homeowner your recommendation on adding AC units to the bedrooms. We hope to see you in 2019!
