Location is perfect, everything within a short walk! The views are stunning! The property was was very clean. However updates in the master bed and bath are much needed! Don't let that sway you, well worth staying regardless!

The house was clean and comfortable, mattress in the larger bedroom is soft. Water came out brown so we bought our own to drink. The view is magnificent and the location worked well for exploring Cape Ann. The high price of the rental justified by the spectacular view and setting.

We were in town for a wedding in Gloucester and, despite the slight headache of traveling back and forth, are so glad we stayed in Rockport. This house was just what we needed for us, our little one, and his grandparents. It was fairly kid-friendly and we moved some things around to make sure it was, there were toys and kid sized chairs, and the view can't be beat. We love the addition of the binoculars! We would love to return to Rockport and certainly recommend this home to anyone looking to be close to everything but with privacy and a perfect view.

As lovely as I thought it would be!

The view at “The View” is as wonderful as it looks in the pictures, and then some. Other than one day of a view of pea soup fog (post tropical storm Henri) and one day without the a/c working, everything was perfect! My brother really enjoyed being able to watch a baseball game and the ocean at the same time. I’ve been renting from AVH for 9 years and I’ve seen places come on and then go off the rental market – I do hope “The View” is available again. Glad I spotted it as a new rental this year!

The View says it all! Best view ever.

We've stayed at many Cape Ann coastal property rentals and this was the best. Won't stay anywhere else if we don't have to. Property was as described in ad. Clean, well cared for, everything you need - lots of coffee pods, sugar, tea, spices, dishes, cookware, etc. We did less running around than we usually do because we loved being there so much. My aunt came down from Maine for two nights and the house has a great layout for that. She had her own room and bathroom at one end and the master bed and bath was at the other end. Would be a perfect setup for two couples or people with kids as the day room has a trundle bed. Overall excellent rental. We took a cruise on the Thomas E Lannon - always enjoyable, but several other outings were cancelled due to weather. We lived in Gloucester for awhile a few years back and love it. Had to leave for a job, but hope to return permanently someday. Great community. Restaurants consistently provide great food and service.

We loved "The View" for its simplicity, wonderful location (quiet, a stroll from Rockport and its shops and restaurants and the beaches), cleanliness and as the name says, fantastic view of Rockport. It suited our needs (family of 3 with small dog) perfectly and offered the amenities we needed. AVH also assisted us in arranging pet care which was very helpful. Overall, an excellent experience.

The View! Beautiful, clean, comfortable home!

This was the nicest rental that we’ve ever stayed in. The home was clean and organized and well stocked with everything that we needed. The view was beyond beautiful! You can tell that a lot of the time and care went into maintaining and preparing this home. We hope to stay here again next year and thank you to the owners for creating such a comfortable space for us to enjoy.

Heaven!

This house was amazing. We stayed at this house for our son’s wedding and we could not have been happier with it. The house was well stocked and had everything we needed. We definitely want to rent this house again. It was a perfect week!

We had a wonderful stay at The View and want to return next summer! it is a beautiful cottage, very well maintained and clean. It seems to have everything a renter would need. The kitchen looks beautifully up to date with a big fridge. We woke up every morning to gorgeous sunrises and watched the lobster boats go out. The views are spectacular from this cottage! We swam at Back Beach and dined on Bearskin Neck and in Essex. A pleasant and memorable stay.

Dear Leslie Ann, Thanks for leaving such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you all enjoyed the spectacular views and the gorgeous sun rises and watching the lobster boats go out and all that Cape Ann has to offer! We look forward to your return next summer.

This view really has to be seen to be believed. I like to stay in a place that is in a beautiful setting and this was it in any weather. Having it all on one level was great for my 88 year old father. You can go into the busy town but then feel like your're totally out of the fray in this beautiful spot. It's a very homey and comfortable house with a feeling of happy memories in it.
