Description

This bright and open contemporary vacation rental home was custom-designed and built by the architect owner. The care and skill is reflected in the soaring ceilings, multitudes of windows and skylights, and warm pine floors, all of which bring the outside in -- yet all is kept cool with central air conditioning.

Enjoy your access to the pristine and private Coffins Beach with the passes that are included when renting the Sea Fox House. Choose to walk the half mile to the beach, or park in the private parking area and walk the remaining 5 minutes to the white sands of the private part of Wingaersheek Beach.

Enter the house through the sweet and shady farmer's porch (complete with requisite chaise and table) and into the foyer which flows into the open living dining and kitchen. This is the perfect place for all to gather while enjoying your activity of choice. You can cook in the fully applianced kitchen with a gas range, have a snack in the bright dining area, or watch a movie on Netflix on the Smart TV in the comfy living room.

Two sets of sliding glass doors take you to the large wraparound deck perfect for grilling and dining al fresco. Completing this floor is a queen bedroom, a full bath with a shower, and full sized separate laundry room. Upstairs are two more spacious bedrooms: the master king (with its own small deck) and a twin bedroom (with two extra single mattresses for the occasional sleepover) and another full bath. An added bonus is the (separate-if-you-want) in-law suite on the lower level with its own entrance, living/dining (complete with a double pullout sofa) and queen sleeping area and simple basic kitchen, as well as a full bath. The suite may also be accessed from an internal stairway.

A short drive from Route 128, Sea Fox house is the perfect starting point for day trips to the seafood restaurants in the port of Gloucester, the art galleries and shops of Rockport, the picturesque village of Manchester-by-the-Sea or the antiques of Essex, and of course to Boston in less than an hour. The best of all worlds, plus the beach, are here at Sea Fox House.

We enjoyed our week in this clean, modern, well-provisioned rental. The most important caveat for potential renters is that the beach isn't easily walkable, so you'll need to plan for some car shuttling. But the beach is wonderful, so its all worth it!

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sea Fox House and we hope to welcome you back next summer!

We were very pleased w/SeaFox house. The location, cleanliness and over all comfort of this great house was perfect for six people.

We didn't need to pack a thing for the kitchen. There was plenty of pots/pans, paper products and other supplies.

We did have an issue w/main level bathroom, the flush handle/lever broke. The AVH folks came out and fixed however the toilet continued to run and run so I think it needs some attention.


The location is very private and the grounds are beautiful. We would rent this again!

The home was in a beautiful neighborhood. Quiet and secluded. The beach was very close and we were able to walk to it. The beach was beautiful and at all crowded. The water temp was not bad. The house had an open flair but felt very comfy. It came with all the amenities needed for a perfect vacation especially a beautiful wrap around deck for coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. All in all definitely a place we would look to stay at agasin

I loved the house in Gloucester. But I was suppose to have rented a house in Essex. And because I was not in Essex, the things I was planning to do there never happened. THE WEEK DID NOT TURN OUT THE WAY I HAD THOUGHT IT WOULD.
Manager response on 2014-07-25 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
A water pipe in the cottage you initially rented burst, which made the home uninhabitable until the issue was resolved. We hoped that placing you in a larger home with access to a private beach would help rectify any inconveniences you experienced. We are very sorry that you didn't get to stay in Essex like you ideally wanted, but we hope that you were able to thoroughly enjoy your vacation regardless. We would love for you to return next year, and we promise that we'll do all we can to ensure that you get your opportunity to stay in Essex! We wish you an excellent rest of the year!

The house is really enjoyable to stay in. Comfortable yet special because of its high ceilings and sky lights. We encountered a few very unpleasant folks on the Beach Road who were rude about us driving down the path to drop our family off before parking in the designated spot. We set off the smoke alarm frequently simply by cooking sausages. And there weren't any extra garbage bags. But other than that, no complaints. A nice stay for a family. Thank you!
