Nestled in a cul de sac and fronting on the Crane River, Afternoon Delight in historic Beverly is the perfect place to watch the river currents glide by. The riverfront wraparound deck offers a blissful place to sit or dine in either sun or shade, thanks to an exterior awning. There is also a gas grill and additional outdoor seating.

Central air keeps the house temperate throughout.

Loved it!

by Jodi

One of the best houses we’ve ever rented, surely a hidden gem. House was clean, nicely decorated and you can’t beat the porch overlooking the water. Location was central to everywhere we wanted to go. Would definitely stay here again.

Afternoon Delight

by Charlene

This rental offered by AVH lives up to its name. We have rented it once before (a few years ago) and it has been maintained so well. It’s clean, has clear instructions, plenty of room, great internet, and a perfect spot because you’re on the water but can walk to a nearby park! We will definitely stay again!

Thank you for taking the time to share your 2020 experience with us! We're happy that you had a great vacation and we're looking forward to your next visit.

Tide Watching and More

by Robert
We enjoyed our weekend stay at Afternoon Delight. The house and location are superb and we enjoyed watching the tide and boats come and go. One question raised by our family was if there were some bathmats. A great visit, it would be nice if we could do it again.

Best vacation spot

Best house

by Unknown
Great time was had by all. Had family in neighboring town and couldn't all fit in the house so this house met all our needs. Had a great time hanging out on the deck and having everyone over for dinner. House fit all our needs and more. Enjoyed watching the boats and birds.

An All Day Delight

by Richard
I have been renting vacation homes for seven years and this one was by far the best experience ever. From the home itself to the rental agents everything was first class and I would rent it again and deal with the people at AVH who were very helpful and professional. It was serene,scenic and supplied with everything one needs.

Such a wonderful place

by Gayle
My family and I spent a week at the house and we loved every minute. The house feels like a home away from home. It's easy to find everything you need to cook and clean. The couches are comfy and the deck is that extra touch that makes it all worth it. The bathrooms were clean and in good condition. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a place to retreat to and enjoy the views.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and felt at home in Afternoon Delight.

Afternoon Delight Is a Delight

by Charlene
I would like to say that it was awful, in order to discourage others from renting it so much, BUT IT WAS FABULOUS! My family loved it and it was the perfect location to where we needed to be.

Hall Wedding Retreat

by Unknown
Our time at Afternoon Delight was exactly as the name describes. The accommodations fit our need and the views outstanding. Being flatlanders just minutes from the Rocky Mountains, seeing the tide changes was amazing and a new experience. We would recommend Afternoon Delight to anyone seeking accommodations in the greater Boston Area.

Perfect place, fantastic people

by Julie
My husband, children and my parents stayed at this house rental for 9 days and I can't say enough good things about it! The kids LOVED it, loved the river and house itself. My husband and I fell in love with the views and the town of Beverly. The location was peaceful and quiet, yet things to do were close by. The house was super clean and had great furniture throughout, which is hard to find in vacation rentals. The property management team was exceptional and professional. The mobile phone app for the property was great to have and very, very helpful. The only thing I can "complain" about is the checkout time. It's at 10:00am and it would have been nice to have a noon checkout. If the management could figure that out, it would be a great bonus 🙂 All in all, great, great house/location/management, which complemented our fantastic visit to Boston. We can't wait to come back!
We're glad you and your family had such a wonderful time in Cape Ann and Boston! The town of Beverly really is a wonderful place for both children and adults, so it looks like you chose a perfect location! We thank you for the compliments about our performance, and we're thrilled that we could help you make the most of your vacation - We hope to see you next summer!!

Great holiday

by Hale

It has been an amazing holiday for us. The location was really convenient. The house was really homey, clean and beautiful. It was a house that could answer to all needs. The view enchanted us. Since it was located in one of the best and most central places in Mass it shortened our trip times. We recommend this property to everyone.

Best Way to End the Summer

by Lisa

We rented Afternoon Delight the last week in August. The house is beautiful! Well equipped, clean, comfortable and a wonderful view from the back deck. The location was terrific - just 30 minuted from everyplace we wanted to go (beaches, Boston, shopping). We had a terrific week and look forward to renting this place again!

Thank you for your glowing review!

Total delight

by Paul
For us it was a great vacation house. Location is not Rockport but this is a gem with more conveniences. I give it 6 stars out of 5 overall but it is not your total 'getaway' beach house and it is not meant to be that, just in case you are looking for that. It is a wonderful, fantastic property and I cannot say enough about it. I look forward to going back in the future.
