Good Harbor Beach, one of Gloucester's finest stretches of sand, is just a five minute walk from this comfortable ocean-view vacation rental home. Spend the day at the beach where you can swim, soak in the sun, or walk at low tide out to picturesque Salt Island. Prefer to stay at the house? Relax and read a book on its expansive deck taking in the views of the sparkling Atlantic with sailboats parading by. Inhale the fresh salt air, and listen to the muffled sound of the waves lapping the shoreline. A ten-minute stroll in the other direction will bring you to Long Beach, often filled with surfers as they catch the waves. An ice cream stand, luncheonette and several roadside eateries are nearby.

Enter from the parking area to the home’s lower level. This level includes the entrance area, a spacious queen bedroom, full bath with shower, laundry room and a den. From here you can head outside to the front yard area or up the stairs to the main living space.

The stairs open into a sitting room with comfortable sofas and large picture windows that look out over the expansive deck and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Walk into the next open plan room with another seating area and a flat screen TV, kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area and more picture windows and sliders leading out to the ocean side deck. This floor has two bedrooms, one a queen and one with two double beds, as well as a full bath with tub and shower.

You are bound to make many happy memories at this wonderful Briar Neck vacation home.

1,284 SF. Dogs allowed. No smoking. No events or parties.

Our Kind of Spot

by Elby

This was our second time in 2023 staying at Salt Island Views and our third year returning. It feels like a second home. The house is roomy and open and easy. It is outfitted so you can cook meals easily at home and eat on the beautiful deck. The place was spotless when we arrived, despite it having been rented for most of the summer by other visitors. The location is ideal. It's an easy walk to both Good Harbor and Long Beaches. The sunsets, sunrises and nightscapes are glorious. We particularly like the house and Gloucester because of the region's low-key character and how it lacks the kind of frenzied feel one has in other summer vacation spots. A great spot to sleep, swim, hang out with family, walk, nap, boogie board, paddle board and surf. A purchase of a wetsuit this year greatly improved my appreciation of ocean swimming. (Although the locals never seemed to notice the water temperature.)

Thank you so much for your glowing review! We look forward to your next stay with us.

Incredible house! Incredible location!

by Dan Lockwood
 

Everything about our stay at Salt Island Views was superlative! The house is the ultimate beach house: spacious and inviting, with a deck that offers a spectacular view of Salt Island. You can see the attention to detail in the decoration. Every morning I discovered something new to admire. Access to the beach and to Rockport and Gloucester are second to none! We\'ll most definitely be back!

Relaxing Week Watching The Waves

by Roy S

My family loved our week at this wonderful home. We spent much of the time on the expansive deck watching the changing tides as seagulls drifted back and forth. The house is in a friendly neighborhood with beautifully landscaped homes full of flowers and small gardens. Salt Island Views is located about a 5 minute walk from Good Harbor Beach and a 10 minute walk from Long Beach and was a short walk to a nearby ice cream stand and pizza/sub shop. So much to do in town including whale watching trips, deep sea fishing, and so many restaurants. We loved the town of Gloucester and the week went by much too quickly. We will definitely return next summer.

Fantistic!

by Tammy S

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Salt Island Views. The location was perfect for us - a beautiful quiet neighborhood on the water between Good Harbor Beach and Long Beach! We were able to walk our dog every day on the beach and/or around the lovely neighborhood and the neighbors were all very nice. Inside, the house is very comfy and full of interesting decor. The ocean views from the large deck or just inside the floor to ceiling windows is stunning - in all weather!!

Priceless Views

by Debbie A

We had a wonderful stay at Salt Island Views. The views from the spacious deck are absolutely fabulous! It would be easy to spend all day there. The home is extremely comfortable, not fancy, spotless clean, and everything you could need for your stay is there, and works great. The location is wonderful; a lovely residential neighborhood, a short walk to Good Harbor Beach, and an easy drive to either Rockport or downtown Gloucester. A couple of suggestions for upgrades: 1) add air conditioning to the downstairs bedroom -- we didn't use that room for sleeping; although had we it would have been hot and humid. And, 2) new kitchen countertops -- these work, but butcher block shows wear over time. Overall, a terrific stay with some wonderful memories, and I expect we will return for more.

Thank you for your kind review and also for your feedback!

Great Escape

by Turko

This was a second stay at Salt Island Views and it was a delight. Wonderful views, breeze off the ocean, the house is comfortable with a large sitting area, deck and comfortable beds. We have stored many happy memories here. Think that the towel supplier (a service, probably not run by the owner) could invest in better towels, and new ones. Many didn't match and were worn out. ) Aside from this tiny thing, everything else was wonderful and all the appliances, including washer, dryer, dishwasher worked perfectly. There is nothing better than falling asleep and waking to the sound of the ocean and birds singing their hearts out.

Thank you for your review! We will be working to improve our towel and linen service for next year. We will be looking forward to your return visit.

Never Disappoints

by Alexander

We've been guests at least a half-dozen times in this lovely home, and my last review ("Alexander," 2019, below) still holds up--and they've added a hose with a nozzle to spray off sand! (Now my wish list includes a few beach chairs and pillows that aren't quite so thick. But, again, still, quibbles.) Nothing more soothing than gazing out at Salt Island and watching the tide ebb and flow.

We were so glad to be able to welcome you back to Salt Island Views! Thanks for leaving us another kind review and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Unbelievable views

by Unknown
This home is very special. The owners were an artist and geologist and the home is appointed with art and cool items. If you have small children who are walking and reaching to grab things this may not be the best choice of rentals. The views are terrific and it is a short walk (5 min) to Good Harbor Beach. Beds are comfortable, 3 separate sitting areas and a large deck with comfortable lounge chairs to view the ocean and Salt Island. The kitchen is tiny but workable with toaster oven, microwave and oven. Huge round table with comfortable chairs for dining. Quiet neighborhood with friendly people and their dogs walking by. Quick walk to ice cream and subs, walk about 8 minutes to Long Beach as well. Love this place, we have rented it twice.

An Unforgettable Stay

by Carolyn
Salt Island Views rental was perfect in so many ways! The lovely view of the ocean & Salt Island with its changing tides made for a memorable week. We walked to Good Harbor Beach at least 2 times a day & enjoyed the refreshing water & clean, soft sand. The house was commodious, well equipped & well positioned. Neighbors were so friendly & offered so many helpful tips about the area.
Thank you for your wonderful 5-star review. We are thrilled to hear that you had a marvelous stay! We hope to welcome you back to Cape Ann in the future.

A Seaside Delight

by Unknown
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Salt Island Views. The home is exceptionally beautiful and in a perfect location for beach lovers, as it is only a very short walk to both Good Harbor Beach and Long Beach. The ocean, as well as Salt Island, is constantly in view from the large, comfortable deck and from the major living areas inside the home. As much as we loved it, families with very small children would find it challenging, as would anyone for whom walking is difficult, as the main living/dining/cooking areas are up a flight of stairs. For us, it was perfect.
Thank you for your fabulous review!

Happy to make a return visit

by Alexander
Great location, splendid views, equidistant to the two essentials of a Good Harbor beach week (the ocean and the Dairy Maid). The a/c was particularly welcome this year. And we love the character of the interior--definitely not your cookie-cutter beach house. The only thing missing (and it's a quibble) is an outdoor shower, or at least a nozzle for the hose for spraying off sand before traipsing back into the house.
Thank you for your 5-star review! We are thrilled that you had a great stay and we hope you'll return back to Salt Island Views in the upcoming season!

Thank you for your 5-star review! We are thrilled that you and your family had a wonderful stay at Salt Island Views for a third year in a row. We look forward to welcoming you back for your 4th return trip next year!

Spring at Cape Anne

by Unknown
This house is situated in a fantastic location right near good harbor and long beach. There are amazing waterfront views from every room. I had an amazing month at the ocean and would recommend it to anyone interested at being on the ocean.

Salt Island Views Review

by Steven
The vacation was excellent. Good Harbor Beach is always beautiful and dynamic. The weather was sunny and warm/hot. And the house was the best part. The deck was perfect, affording a great view of - Salt Island! Being outside in such comfort was a real treat. The house was very clean and everything worked, including the grill. We’ll be back next summer.
Thank you for your 5-star review! We are thrilled to hear that you had an excellent vacation and that Salt Island Views was the perfect home for your summer rental needs. We hope to see you next summer!
