Description

Your family will love this extraordinary waterfront vacation rental home with spectacular views. Set on a bluff over picturesque Strawberry Cove and the open Atlantic, views abound from almost every light-filled room. The house offers three levels of sophisticated, yet comfortable living space.

Enter into the spacious foyer and you are immediately impressed by the light and open style that creates the illusion of floating on the ocean. The fireplaced library is a bright yet cozy place to sit and watch the waves with its multiple sitting areas, small office space with desk, and slider to the enormous deck. To the left is the living/dining room with sliders to the same deck overlooking the sea, as well as a 48" flat screen and another working fireplace. Also on this level is the separate laundry room. Up a set of steps from this wing is a large and sunny bedroom complete with queen sized bed and an ocean view.

On the other side of the library is the wonderful water view queen master suite with air conditioning and a full bath. This suite can be made completely private by closing the outer suite door. Just past the full granite hall bath is the queen guest room, which is also air conditioned.

Just when you think that it could not get any better, the lower level offers more fun with another entire fully applianced granite kitchen, complete with an oversized wine cooler, a dining area (or perfect place for games, or puzzles), and living area with another large flatscreen TV, new pullout queen sleeper sofa, a ping pong table room, full bath with a shower and another queen bedroom.

The outside of the property is as wonderful as the inside, with a verdant lawn and the amazing multilevel decks built into the bluff overlooking the sea. Walk out of your choice of doors into the yard, where you can enjoy the hammock and the ocean view. If you would like to immerse yourself, the public beach is just 6/10 of a mile from the house, or you can drive to the larger beaches of Good Harbor Beach and Wingarsheek Beach. The commuter rail is a short drive from the house that will take you to Salem and Boston for the day, in less than an hour. And the wonderful seaside communities of Rockport, Manchester and Essex are a short drive. Come and enjoy this wonderful waterfront experience this summer!

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

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!
Manager response on 2017-09-28 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
So glad you enjoyed your stay. The hot tub was not included in the rental. Hopefully, there will be one when you come back!

Fabulous!

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.
