The house and location were amazing. Everything was in good condition and well maintained. The house was so comfortable that we didn't get out much -- we spent most of our time at the beach or around the pool.

The folks at AVH were amazing. We left my daughter's favorite stuffed animal on the table when we left. I was able to get in touch with someone on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend to retrieve the wayward animal. Awesome customer service!

Our only complaint about the property is the cooktop in the kitchen. We tend to cook rather than eat out on vacation. It worked fine for little things but didn't generate enough heat to boil water for pasta.

Great Summer Days Poolside!

Easy, breezy summer rental in Rockport with Poolside! We had a great 2 week stay July 2015. House is well appointed and can handle a large group easily with indoor/outdoor spaces and plenty of seating/living/sleeping areas. We loved the pool and big kitchen. Easy walk to town!

Our week in Rockport at Poolside Summers was great. The weather was wonderful and the accommodations were excellent. We experienced no problems with the house. The new stove worked very well which was a blessing since we are cooks! We highly recommend poolside summers and will strongly consider it for next year.

Nice rental for a family

What a wonderful, friendly, guest oriented rental. The setting is quite private, yet within walking distance to a beach, and all the delights of Rockport-shops, galleries, restaurants, and wonderful walks . Our week of weather was exceptionally warm making the pool a most enjoyable and refreshing addition to an almost perfect rental property. The thoughtfulness of all the furnishings-inside and out - as well as the kitchen equipment, linens,etc was very apparent. Roomy and most comfortable all around. Dining possibilities both inside and outside we're wonderful.
The air conditioning was absolutely necessary the week we stayed. The third level (not air conditioned)was not able to be used for sleeping. It was stifling with no air movement, even with the fans. The master bedroom is a lovely space and it warrants a king size bed - it would even look better.
Overall possibly one of the best rentals we have experienced. Thanks to the owners and management for making this a very special time. Also, the abundance of info available in the rental to ease the stay was exceptional.
Can't wait to get back!!
Manager response on 2013-07-30 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
5/31/2014 - The owner has taken your comments about the air conditioning to heart, and the third floor of the home is now air conditioned - making it, as you say "an almost perfect rental property"! 7/30/2013 - We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Poolside Summers, and that you had access to many of Cape Ann's wonders. Thank you for the kind suggestions, we will be in touch with the owners. It is great to hear that you had such a wonderful vacation, and we look forward to having the chance to serve you again soon!

The house was amazing and exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed, my girls loved setting the dining room table with all the dishes placemats and candles. The living room was very spacious, and provided us with many books to read for both adults and chlidren as well as some really fun games. The towles ann linens provided were plush and very cozy, the 2 main bedrooms with attached baths were just what we needed since we were sharing with another family, each family had there own with the extra bath in the laurdry room. The upper 2 bedrooms were great for the kids they were able to hang out listen to music without disturbing the rest of the house, it would be great if the airconditioning could include the upper bedroooms. Our favorite part was the pool we didn't have great weather threats of rain most days, although we would have loved to explore the many beaches around Rockport and Gloucester the pool came in very handy. The mangement company was very attentive, we were notified prior to arriving of a problem with the keys which was rectified before we got to the house, we did have a problem with the pump in the pool as well, but the got it rectified quickly and AVH called frequently to make sure everything was ok. I would high recomend this property and rental company to anyone, can't wait to come back!!!!!

Overall, we had a wonderful Itime at Poolside Summers. The home was very nice and easily accommodated our family of seven. The home was spacious and beautifully decorated. We especially loved the games and books that were available for our use. The house is located in walking distance to restaurants. Ice cream shops and stores. It was also close to the many beaches that are in this area. Finally, the pool was a wonderful addition to our stay. It was truly a wonderful vacation at Poolside Summers.

Our second year at Poolside Summers and every bit as delightful as the first. The property is very special. Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. The house has wonderful space, and is beautifully accesorized and stocked to make your stay very pleasant. The one needed repair was handled as soon as it was reported to management, with speed and professionalism, by a very delightful gentleman. The addition of AC to the third floor made these sleeping quarters much more acceptable than last year (95-98 degree temps) and of course the temperature was more normal as well. The location is just delightful - and my family discovered a wonderful beach a few miles away but our favorite one on Cape Ann - Singing Beach - absolutely beautiful and our most favorite of all the beaches we have been to. Highly recommend this beautiful beach.

If you get the chance just don't miss this rental! Great space, great location, great management!

Thanks for the great review! We're glad you had a delightful time at Poolside Summers! - The air conditioning does make sleeping a whole lot more pleasant, doesn't it? We're glad you decided to return to Cape Ann this summer, and we hope that "the third time's the charm" and you come back next year! Thanks for choosing Atlantic Vacation Homes, and we wish you an excellent rest of the summer!

This home is very well equipped and thoughtfully put together for a family vacation. The private outdoor space has lots of chairs and a dining table and gas BBQ. The,pool has floats, and the owners provide beach chairs and umbrellas. The house has good books for all ages and well-selected toys for children. We've never rented a house with a kitchen as well-equipped as this one. All in all, this is a wonderful house in a great location.
