Great rental

by Unknown
We had a very good time at the property. It's well maintained, spacious, and there is a lot of thought put into the comfort of guests. Beaches, restaurants and shopping are nearby.

Love this property

by Jaime
We loved our stay at Family Tides. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and well equipped for our family of seven (husband, myself, four adult kids and one grandchild). Nice, big kitchen where we could prepare meals together and generous dining table that could easily accommodate everyone. Beds were comfortable (although bunk beds were a bit small for our grown sons). Loved the large deck and dining area. Outside shower was fabulous. Great location - easy to walk to beach or to into town. Realty company was incredibly responsive and helpful. Would rent again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Family Vacation

by Patrick
This was our third summer vacationing in Gloucester and the best yet. There were 7 of us over the week. We all loved the home-plenty of space, bright ,clean and comfy! Everything included for a relaxing vacation. An easy walk to the beach-our kids-in their twenties had a surf lesson with Surfari at Good Harbor-hilarious! We walked or ran Atlantic Ave along the ocean everyday- and even spotted a whale! Great restaurants- Duckworth's Bistro, Yella and Short and Main,Blue Collar Lobster our favorites.and Holy Cow for ice cream. Plenty to do or nothing at all-the perfect vacation. We all were totally rejuvenated. Thank you, The McGovern Family
Wow, thank you for such a wonderful review. We are delighted to see that you had a wonderful stay at Family Tides. Again, we thank you for sharing your experience with us and look forward to having you return to Gloucester in the future!

Lovely home

by Unknown
Beautiful home in Gloucester. Fully stocked and lots of room for everyone. I realized that many homes in New England don't have AC but it was really hot and humid when we stayed there...perhaps window AC units in the bedrooms.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Family Tides. We will be bringing your suggestions to the homeowner about adding AC units in the bedrooms as they consider improvements for the upcoming season.

Family Tides Review

by Daniel
We had a great time at the rental. It was clean, uncluttered with modern furnishings. The kitchen had more than enough glassware and plates, while still having plastic plates for the kids. The grill worked great. The only thing we’d change is a few small air conditioners in the bedrooms. The main area gets plenty of ventilation, but the bedrooms got very stuffy in the 87 degree heat. The locations was the best part. Long enough of a walk to the beach so the kids didn’t ask constantly to go to the water, but short enough of a walk that they could make the walk back easily. No traffic on the street and enough green space the neighbors were almost non existent.
We are glad to see that overall everyone had a great stay. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. This summer was rather warm, especially during the time of your visit. We will share with the homeowner your recommendation on adding AC units to the bedrooms. We hope to see you in 2019!
