About the property

It is cozy, but filled with light and feels spacious for a studio

Newly listed for 2014. Everything is brand new and there is a private entrance down a crushed stone path ending with a garden patio.

Close to beaches, downtown and the commuter train to Boston.

Walk to downtown to visit the local shops, art galleries and restaurants known for their fresh seafood. If you are out for a morning walk be sure to stop by the coffee shop for a hand-cut doughnut.

We have a Beach Buggy ready for you to load up and walk to the beach. It will carry your chairs, towels and cooler!

The commuter train to Salem and Boston is a very short walk away. Perfect for a day trip.

Although Rockport offers much to do, staying 'home' is also a pleasant option. You can comfortably cook in the fully equipped kitchen or adjourn to the lovey garden patio with gas grill and bistro set.

Rockport is a charming New England town, especially if you are drawn to the water. You can spend your entire vacation here or use us as a starting point to discover the North Shore.

Property is available from May 1st through October 31st.

We know you will enjoy your stay.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean and cosy and has everything you might need. It's a nice walk to downtown and easy to get to nearby Cape Ann towns. Would definitely stay here again if we returned to the area.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to Rockport! This rental was just what we were looking for! It was the right amount of space for 2 people to rest, relax, and prepare simple meals. We appreciated the extra touches like a cooler, freezer packs, and umbrellas that were there for us to use since we could not bring all of these items with us. The location of this rental was just right for walking to the heart of all of the shops and restaurants in Rockport.

Spent a relaxing few days at this lovely 'home away from home'. Perfect spot for exploring the town or just unwinding at the end of a busy day in the comfy bed.! Many thanks.....

Perfect place at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

Jo-Ann, the owner, welcomed me when I arrived. The place is exactly as the photos show; it is wonderful and charming. You get all the possible amenities one could need for any occasion, including books to read, a lunch box for picnics, umbrellas, beach towels, etc, etc. The studio is spotless and very well equipped (oven, fridge, coffee machine, utensils, china, etc.). Internet connection is fast and you can access a vast number of channels on the TV. The environment is quiet and easy to find. Parking is right on the road. Rockport is simple to reach by walking. I recommend this property without any reservation.
