Right next to a coffee shop and stop and shop. Clean house with plenty of toiletries and beds. Loved our stay and would highly recommend.

House was in great condition. Modern style and central air! A huge plus. Location perfect. Beach right down the street and stores behind us for food. Clean place.

This freshly renovated and immaculately kept home was a great place to stay. It was perfect for two couples. It is well equipped for staying in to cook or there are good restaurants in walking disance. There is a really nice grocery store behind the house too. Our local host was available and helpful. The beds are on the firm side. The internet is fast. We would stay there again.

House was great.

For the price, this was a perfect location. Nice digs to come back to after a day at Good Harbor Beach or a clam roll in town

Lovely beautifully furnished home in walking distance to beach.
house was gorgeous inside - clean and impeccable.

location is interesting as it is close to the road and stop and shop but it works to walk to Good Harbor beach!

Wir waren Ende Oktober für zwei Nächte mit 4 Personen dort. Es ist ein wunderschönes Haus mit allem Komfort. Es war sehr sauber und die Betten sehr gemütlich.
Die Anreise war überhaupt kein Problem, obwohl ich sehr spät kam, den es gab eine
Zahlencode, den ich unaufgefordert einige Tage vor der Anreise mitgeteilt bekam. Die Einrichtung ist sehr hochwertig und stilvoll.
Vor Ort meldete sich difekt per Mail der zustömdige Verwalter mit allen Kontaktdaten und bei den kleinsten Fragen meldete er sich umgehend zurück.
Wenn ich wieder nach Gloucester komme, komme ich auf jeden Fall wieder hierhin.

As noted in prior reviews the downstairs toilet only had one light still when we arrived, so it was DARK in there. As the management had responded that they were replacing these bulbs that wasn't the case, so we bought and replaced two of the three tract halogen light bulbs. Also, there is only one parking space in front of the house and no nearby parking. This would be helpful to know ahead of time if you are different groups meeting to be together and have more than one vehicle. Also know that the beaches and other shore areas require a residents permit to be able to park there. We got hit with a $50 parking ticket when we were 30 feet from our car as we weren't "residents". It would be most helpful to have this information in the home and also where to get a temporary one. This was October, so not the height of the tourist season, so we were shocked by how visitor unfriendly area this is, so we can only suggest that visitors go elsewhere for their vacations. I guess that they have more than enough business to support their small local shops from the residents with these policies. We won't be back and will advise anyone interested in this area to go elsewhere.

This property is beautifully decorated and was very clean upon arrival. We made use of the large kitchen and dining table. The beds were comfy, and the house was a great spot for the five of us. It was about a five minute trip downtown to all the shops and restaurants. CVS and Stop and Shop are literally around the corner. Be mindful that you are not near the water. We knew that going in, so it wasn't a problem for us.

Room for improvement: We had some issues with the downstairs bathroom. There was no curtain in the window, no shower curtain lining, and lighbulbs were not working. I would expect all those details to be taken care of since they were mentioned in a previous review. The same issues exist in the photos posted online. Parking was extremely difficult. There is not a lot of room in the driveway and it is located off the main road. I would suggest some areas to park for future guests. Overall a nice stay and a great space for a family.
Manager response:
The property manager has taken care of the lights and shower curtain in the downstairs bathroom. We have made our parking restrictions as they are to prevent overwhelming our neighbors. In the future, we will be sure to provide our guests with parking information for additional cars. We will discuss curtains for the bathroom window with the owner. Thank you!

Six of us (three couples) had a nice getaway. The house is on a busy street, but the inside was very comfortable. Vacasa really needs to add curtains to the bathroom windows since people can look straight into the shower downstairs. Otherwise, a solid place to stay!
Manager response:
The property manager will have curtains installed on the bathroom windows soon.

We felt a little misled by the pictures that showed water views, which only proved to be views of the water in general - not views you could see from the house (which backs up to a parking lot and is located on a busy street). Looking back on the pictures, they did not in fact show the house in those photos, so that was our mistake in not exploring that feature more. The house itself was well-maintained and updated but lacks a washer and dryer, which we just expected in renting a home of this size. We also felt uncomfortable having to shower with exposed windows that faced the coffee shop parking lot (there is a tree blocking most of the second floor window, so we used that shower). Overall a nice house, but it ended up not being what we were expecting, and we would not stay here again.
Manager response:
We appreciate receiving this review and are sorry to see these guests felt misled. The pictures were taken by drone and indicate the area the home is located in. The home's address is provided in the listing so guests can verify its exact location if they wish. The home does have a washer and dryer located in the basement. The property manager will discuss with the owner the possibility of putting curtains up in the bathroom. Thank you!

My Family had a wonderful time during our stay.
The bedrooms are very quiet at night.

The house is decorated very nicely and clean.

The inside of the house feels great! Fabulous redesign. We cooked lovely dinners with fresh fish bought from Connelly's down the street. We love the proxmiity to Good Harbor but also drove to Wingarsheak Beach. And evening trips to the the best ice cream in town right across the street is such a plus!!!!
