Beautiful clean property... the only disappointment was expecting to use the fireplaces and a fire pit that was indicated in the house amenities. We rented in October and the owner and Atlantic Vacation were not responsive to our requests... you unfortunately have to verify what you think you have paid for..

Great stay overall. Parking is a bit of a problem and the young adults were disappointed that the hot tub was out of order, but the accommodations and setting were spectacular!! Had a problem with one of the door locks and AVH promptly and cheerfully fixed it.. Would go back in a heartbeat!

So glad you enjoyed your stay. The hot tub was not included in the rental. Hopefully, there will be one when you come back!

Our family (seven of us) were there for the week and we had a wonderful, relaxing time. Plenty of things to do if you wanted to, but very relaxing if you just wanted to stay at the house and enjoy the view.

Very nice place, overall! Recommend you tell renters to NOT look at either your map or google maps. IT IS WRONG. I think your written directions were fine but everyone uses that google map.(our fault) If we hadn't called and had Carol talk us to the place we may never have found it though we were next door, the road does not go through. Also not many lamps, say master bedroom, had 100% light or none at all. Same re LR. The plastic cover under sheets in lower level BR was not comfortable , we didn't want to take it off but not good for sleeping . The goodie bag card was there but no goodie bag. :-) that's ok. Otherwise the place was great, wonderful views and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful home.

One of our best vacations, ever!

This beautiful, immaculate house is located with beautiful views of the ocean. It is spacious and delightfully decorated. I had to call and ask questions regarding the air conditioning and the maintenance personnel were helpful , quick to reply and answered all questions appropriately. Cape Ann is a wonderful vacation spot and we were given an app which gave us easy direction to the home and different activities, attractions, and restaurants along with diections. Gloucester was delightful and the people very friendly. Would definately recommend this property
