Description

Enjoy the views, breezes and scent of the sea from this lofty perch overlooking Gloucester's famed waterfront. Stacy Boulevard is home to the iconic "Gloucester Fisherman at the Wheel" sculpture -- a symbol of the fishing port's rich history as a working waterfront and as the subject of poets, painters, and movie makers.

Come see why so many are drawn to this city on the sea and stay in this lovely duplex vacation rental with views from every room which are full of cheery sunlight. Perched above the bustle of city life between the ocean boulevard and Gloucester's historic Main Street, this modern, open, two bedroom condo is the perfect pied-à-terre for your "in town" seaside vacation.

Located on the second floor, the main living area has plenty of plush leather seating, a 45' flat screen TV, a modern and fully equipped kitchen, dining nook, large water view deck and a new full bath. A spiral staircase leads up to two bedrooms including the master with a king bed, half bath and washer/dryer in the back of the house. A guest bedroom in the front of the house has its own deck and an extremely comfortable futon sofa which opens to a full-size bed, perfect for the occasional overnight guest. The living room sofa also opens to a queen size bed for extra accommodations.

Steps away from Gloucester's historic downtown, which is a wonderful spot for great food, music and quaint shops. Walk to outdoor dining along the harbor, the small beach around the corner, the Fiesta & other waterfront festivals and the extremely popular Summer Block parties and Farmer's Market. Stroll and swim from the beautiful Stage Fort Park and Half Moon Beach at the other end of the ocean boulevard.

PLEASE NOTE: Also although this property indicates that dogs are allowed, there are restrictions as to the type, number, and size of the dog.
This is a two family property.

The condo is in an excellent location with a short walk to the shops and restaurants as well as the beach. We found the condo to be very clean and well equipped. The king mattress was very comfortable. Despite all of this, we would not come back as the lack of air conditioning proved to be a major drawback. We were aware there would be no air conditioning but we thought there would be enough sea breezes to compensate for it. It was stifling the whole 4 days we were there and couldn’t enjoy our time there. My husband was disappointed that he couldn’t enjoy the rain shower head as there were no instructions on how to work the controls and he couldn’t figure it out. We also found it daunting to carry luggage up and down the spiral staircase. We would recommend the property if the above mentioned issues don’t bother you.
Manager response on 2018-09-24 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
Thank you for your taking the time to share your experience with us. This summer was unusually warm. Normally, the ocean breezes are enough to keep the space cool. We will be bringing your recommendations to the homeowner for possible future improvements. In addition, we will be including operating instructions for the rain shower head in the Welcome Book. We hope to welcome you back next season.

Best vacation experience.

I was in town for a wedding and the location was perfect. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and parks. The house was spotless and the decor was fabulous with many interesting pieces. I loved the state of the art bathroom and the bedding was awesome. Like sleeping on clouds including the sofa sleeper. I would highly recommend this location and management company. Thank you for a wonderful experience:)

We appreciated our stay the condo his very well equiped particularly the kitchen with top quality. The location was perfect for us 15 min to the beautiful beach a short walk to the downtown city. The negative side was the noise cause by the birds start early around 5:00 without clim Windows open it wakes you up early.

The property was exactly like it was described. Everything is in walking distance. The only downside is the parking situation. I could never park in the driveway and with 3 kids that was tough. Luckily they are old enough to walk the distance but with much younger children, it would be hard.

We thoroughly enjoyed two relaxing weeks at Treehouse by the Sea in downtown Gloucester. Very comfortable two floor apartment -- well equipped kitchen and well furnished. Grill in the yard. Lovely breeze 24/7, and ocean views. The downtown location can be a bit loud, but in our opinion, well worth being in the heart of it all. Walking distance to all restaurants and activities. Able to stroll through town or along the waterfront and no car needed. The owners and the rental company were also responsive to our needs. We hope to be back!

A stylish home located on "the boulevard". Perfect for those who want to be where the action is. Not a good choice for those looking for peace and quiet as the main drag traffic noises are non-stop.

Very much enjoyed our week in Gloucester. The "Treehouse" was clean, well-stocked, and homey. Great views, right on the main drag in a charming seaside town. Was nice to have a grill available, plus two balconies to sit and relax. Rental company was extremely helpful, answered our questions, even gave great advice on the best way to take public transportation to Boston. Very enjoyable vacation, would hope to do it again soon.
