Sunset Cove was the perfect retreat. The floor plan is open and rooms are spacious. The bedrooms also have beautiful water views and the two master bathrooms were much nicer than I expected. It was perfect for entertaining and I especially enjoyed the ability to launch my kayak right from the property. Everything was meticulously maintained and the sunsets were breathtaking.

Lovely cove and sunsets

We had a great time in this house. We didn’t mind that it was on a main road because you spent most of your time in the back of the house/property! We felt for the price some of the cons would have been nice to have but overall really enjoyed our stay!
Pros: great location
Very clean
Good space and size for our family
Kind neighbors
Updated bathrooms

Basement Bedroom was warm (no ac) never got below 80 degrees and had to run dehumidifier the whole time
Dryer was broken
Grass was tall and needed to be mowed
We would liked to have a few amenities: beach chairs, floats, or paddle boards and kayaks to use for free ( however you can rent from agency)

We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cove. The house was conveniently located close to Rockport and Gloucester as well as several beaches. The house was clean, modern and included a plentiful supply of kitchen items including plates, utensils and drink ware. Our access to the water was great as we could walk from the deck right into the water. The outdoor space was great but a table umbrella would have been a welcome addition due to the afternoon sun over the river.

There is room for some improvement though. The “air conditioning” left something to be desired as there was one window unit on the main floor that didn’t cool the house well. Upstairs, the bedroom window unit sufficiently cooled the room but was extremely loud making sleeping a little difficult. When it was cool enough to open the windows, we couldn’t get the house to cool down since we couldn’t open all kitchen or upstairs windows to get a cross breeze (either no screens and/or windows wouldn’t open at all ).

Overall we liked this house and would rent again but it could be made better with a few changes to ventilation and windows.

Sunset Cove is a lovely place to sit back and enjoy the views. The home was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. The furniture was high quality and very comfortable. Excellent views from every room. Perfect location near Willows Rest, great place to pick up gourmet groceries or delicious prepared foods. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time. The view from the back deck in the morning and late evening was wonderful. Kitchen was well stocked. The store on Washington Street had great lunch items. We got in a little early, but the cleaner/realty woman was professional and worked with us. Thanks.
