Location, location, location! This vacation home is large and comfortable and is just steps to the white sands and surf of Good Harbor Beach. The location offers the best of all worlds as it is so close to Cape Ann's most popular beach and also has water views of Bass Rocks. This dramatic rocky bit of coastline is a destination for those looking for views of the Atlantic at its most intense. The popular "Back Shore" walk is one of the most scenic walks on the eastern seaboard and the sidewalk begins in front of Seaside House and continues for 1.5 miles one way (or 3 miles round trip back to the house).

The front of the house has a full-length porch from which you can view the sea in comfortable shade and enjoy a beverage or meal in the fresh ocean breezes. From the porch, enter into the living room with a flat screen TV and plenty of seating. The adjoining den has a pullout sofa, a TV, and games, which makes the room serve double-duty as a kid (or adult) getaway or semi-private additional sleeping space. The recently renovated granite kitchen is eat-in and fully applianced. The butler's pantry offers more storage and prep space in addition to a half bath.

Upstairs are 4 bedrooms (3 of which are air conditioned) and two more full baths. The master bath offers an oversized jetted tub, double sinks and a separate glass-enclosed shower and the hall bath also has a full-size jetted tub with a shower. The house will comfortably sleep 10 with enough room for your family and the folks that will want to visit you in this wonderful beach house. Leave your car in the driveway (and avoid the beach parking fees) and walk to Good Harbor Beach.

The house has two other occupied units with separate entrances and parking.

2,500 SF. No pets. No smoking. No events or parties.

Wonderful Week

by Unknown
The house was in great shape. The owners were more than gracious and welcoming. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the house served as a gathering place after the party and through out the week. The location was perfect and the views were amazing.

Seaside House 2016

We've been renting with AVH for almost 15 years. This is our 4th year in a row at Seaside House. And we'll be back for year #5 in 2017. Great house. Clean with plenty of amenities. Location is great for walking to Good Harbor Beach and simply enjoying the views of the Atlantic from the front porch.

Sunny, spacious and well-equipped

by Louisa
Our family from Maryland, NYC and the Boston area united at the Seaside House for a week in August, including two small children. We have stayed at numerous properties near Good Harbor Beach over several decades, and found Seaside House to be a spacious and well-equipped property just a short walk from the beach, with the added benefit of the lovely Bass Rocks views and walks. Terrific weather and a full moon over the water added to our enjoyment. The owners are on the property and offered any assistance we might need, but all went smoothly. We would suggest the addition of room darkening shades in all windows, especially on the front of the house. It's a great house for kids with all the diversions of the beach, a nice porch, and super play and game room. The busy street traffic right in front of the house was the only downside for us, and did not seriously detract from the restful experience.

One of the Best Weeks We Have Ever Had in Gloucester!

by Pat

Perfect family vacation for 8 people

by Jay
When we arrived the place was very clean and there was an instruction book for us to follow, making it easy to know what to do with garbage and recyclables, the tv remotes, and how to leave the place upon departure. I met the owner who was very courteous and friendly. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs and one of them is very spacious with a king bed, air conditioning unit, tv, and large bathroom and double sink. The other had a queen and the other 2 had twin beds each. The kitchen is long and fairly wide too. We played games at the kitchen table every night. The house is stocked with about 100 dvd movies and has 2 tv's on the main floor. There were 2 folding tables we used on the porch for our dinners, along with the large glass table and 6 chairs that were already there. I couldn't have been more pleased with a stay at the beach than we were in this house. Had my family of 5 plus my parents and my mother-in-law. We had lobster dinners twice out on the spacious porch which overlooks the ocean. We also cook on the grilled 2 times! Loved our stay! Would do it again in a heartbeat if we can get enough people to fill the house. And it was seamless to make the transactions with the realty company too. They are very courteous.

Our wonderful week in Gloucester

by Pat
We have been coming to Gloucester every summer and renting for the past 15 years, and have had a range of experiences. This one was the best! The location and the views were incredible. The beach was just a 5 minute walk. The house had every amenity one could ever expect or want. Everything was spotless. The owners were so gracious and welcoming. They even helped me when my antique brain couldn't figure out the TV remote! We plan to be back next year.

Thank you to the staff at AVH

by Lyn
The home you rented to us was warm, welcoming and extremely well equipped. The home is clean, bright and has a breathtaking view. The location is perfect for a beach vacation. There were enough items to keep us supplied for the entire week. The games and entertainment equipment were great The staff was all very helpful and understanding of my needs. They make a wonderful team.
Thank you for the wonderful review - we are so glad that we were able to aid in giving you an amazing vacation, and we hope that you choose to come back soon!
