This bright and open contemporary vacation rental home was custom-designed and built by the architect owner. The care and skill is reflected in the soaring ceilings, multitudes of windows and skylights, and warm pine floors, all of which bring the outside in -- yet all is kept cool with central air conditioning.

Enter the house through the sweet and shady farmer's porch (complete with requisite chaise and table) and into the foyer which flows into the open living dining and kitchen. This is the perfect place for all to gather while enjoying your activity of choice. You can cook in the fully applianced kitchen with a gas range, have a snack in the bright dining area, or watch a movie on Netflix on the Smart TV in the comfy living room.

Two sets of sliding glass doors take you to the large wraparound deck perfect for grilling and dining al fresco. Completing this floor is a queen bedroom, a full bath with a shower, and full sized separate laundry room. Upstairs are two more spacious bedrooms: the primary king (with its own small deck) and a twin bedroom (with two extra single mattresses for the occasional sleepover) and another full bath. An added bonus is the (separate-if-you-want) in-law suite on the lower level with its own entrance, living/dining (complete with a double pullout sofa) and queen sleeping area and simple basic kitchen, as well as a full bath. The suite may also be accessed from an internal stairway.

A short drive from Route 128, Sea Fox house is the perfect starting point for day trips to the seafood restaurants in the port of Gloucester, the art galleries and shops of Rockport, the picturesque village of Manchester-by-the-Sea or the antiques of Essex, and of course to Boston in less than an hour. The best of all worlds, plus the beach, are here at Sea Fox House.

Enjoy your access to the pristine and private Coffins Beach when renting the Sea Fox House, just a half mile walk away, or take a short drive to public Wingaersheek Beach, which is also nearby.

1,742 SF. No pets. No smoking. No events or parties.

Gorgeous

by Susana
THe house was gorgeous. It was clean and bright. lots of window. I loved the master bedroom with king size bed and private balcony.. My party was supposed to be 8 sadly 3 dropped the basement had its own little apartment with a queen bed. It had its own bathroom and fridge. Grandma would have been pleased. Everything about this place amazing. It had its own washer and drier which is key when you travel with little kids. We rented via Atlantic Vacation Homes- their staff everyone I dealt with made our stay in every property so seamless and stress free. I would do it again. The private beach was a bit of a walk and we got eaten alive by some nasty flies. The other beach which was not private was 3/4 mile walk and a skip and a hop drive. It cost $30 to park if you went before 4pm. Otherwise its free after. We would def. do this again. We loved it.
Thank you!

Lovely family vacation

by Unknown
Comfortable house in lovely secluded lot. Located a short drive to beaches. Upstairs and main level bead rooms were very comfortable with high ceilings. Lower level suite is accessed thru the bathroom which our party found rather odd. House is very well stocked with kitchen utensils, propane grill, beach chairs and cart, thoughtful instruction binder.

Charming

by Tami
While the weather was not optimal it did not dampen our mini vacation. Wingaersheek Beach is near and dear to our family as we had visited annually but were campers right up the street. Now that our children are grown (and so are we) and have given us grands we wanted to continue tradition but in the comforts of a home. Sea Fox did not disappoint. Plenty of kitchen and living space for family time as well as plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our family. The lower level was key and allowed private quiet space for our newest family of 3. It was close enough to drive to the beach and enjoy for the day, walking is still to far and the street is not safe for walking (very narrow and windy) We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the private beach which we hope to in the future, as we would love to stay at Sea Fox again.
Tami, thank you so much for the wonderful review! We enjoyed hearing about your love of Wingaersheek Beach and how you are continuing the tradition as your family has grown with grandkids. We are also glad to hear that you found AVH and beautiful Sea Fox House. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.

A Good Vacation Spot at a Good Price

by Jason
We enjoyed our week in this clean, modern, well-provisioned rental. The most important caveat for potential renters is that the beach isn't easily walkable, so you'll need to plan for some car shuttling. But the beach is wonderful, so its all worth it!
Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sea Fox House and we hope to welcome you back next summer!

A week at coffin's beach

by Stephanie

We were very pleased w/SeaFox house. The location, cleanliness and over all comfort of this great house was perfect for six people. We didn't need to pack a thing for the kitchen. There was plenty of pots/pans, paper products and other supplies. We did have an issue w/main level bathroom, the flush handle/lever broke. The AVH folks came out and fixed however the toilet continued to run and run so I think it needs some attention. The location is very private and the grounds are beautiful. We would rent this again!

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the maintenance issue and please know that it has been resolved. We look forward to seeing you again!

Wonderful vacation

by Unknown
The home was in a beautiful neighborhood. Quiet and secluded. The beach was very close and we were able to walk to it. The beach was beautiful and at all crowded. The water temp was not bad. The house had an open flair but felt very comfy. It came with all the amenities needed for a perfect vacation especially a beautiful wrap around deck for coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. All in all definitely a place we would look to stay at agasin
Thank you for your great review, Jerry! It is great to hear that your family enjoyed your time at Sea Fox, we would love to have you back next summer.
