About Timothy Giarrosso

Laurie Nugent and Tim Giarrosso, have lived and raised 3 daughters in Rockport for the past 28 years. They ran a contemporary craft gallery, Half Moon Harry, for 18 of those years. They are now designing their own product for catalogs and corporate venues.The two have incorporated their artistic style to create this beautiful ocean-side retreat for their guests.

Timothy Giarrosso purchased this house in 2004

Why Timothy Giarrosso chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Rockport, Ma. Is one of the premier destination spots in all of New England. The town is filled with artist galleries, unique shops and superb seafood restaurants. Evening strolls along the ocean shore and a friendly small town atmosphere make your stay both enjoyable and memorable.

What makes this house unique

Across from Front Beach,the Beach & King is just a few minutes’ walk from the village center and its many seafood restaurants, art galleries and unique shops.

Any time at all...our porch is the place for people watching, beach watching and just enjoying the ocean breeze. Here you will also find rocking chairs and beach chairs, beach umbrella, and a hose just for you to wash the sand off your toes.

And for those rainy or cool days, relax and enjoy the Main Room overlooking the beach. Read a good book or sketch and photograph the beautiful landscape.

best ever

  • 5 of 5

Extended family of 12 ranging in age from 1 to 70 . We have been spoiled and every other vacation will be compared to Beach & King. Great having all our own bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and the eating area a perfect size for all of us. The parlor table was great for jigsaw puzzles. The front porch was good for coffee in the morning, cocktails at night and a great playpen for the 1 year old. Easy walk to beach, shops, restaurants and take out lobster dinners. Never got in a car until Friday to go see a lighthouse. Highly recommend!

amazing beautiful inn

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the Beach King. We rented the house for our annual woman's weekend. When we arrived the house was immaculate and each room was beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked and roomy enough for 14 women to bump around in. The house was private with a beautiful front porch where we spent many hours laughing over coffee or cocktails. The view of the beach was in front of us. We walked to dinner and shops which are nearby. The house had unique artwork and interesting clocks! We hope to return and make this our new annual destination

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

House was fabulous! Location is great for walking around town or just sitting on the porch looking at the beautiful view. We had 15 of our family together and everyone loved it! We fixed several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The dining room table was big enough that our entire family could enjoy meals together.

Thanks Tim and Laurie!

Great house, great location, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Beach and King for the last 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is very nicely furnished, well maintained, and clean. The layout of the rooms make it great for our large family to gather together but also provides space for us to be separate when we want to be. The kitchen is modern and very well stocked. Love the front porch too! Tim and Laurie couldn't be nicer or more accommodating as hosts. The location is perfect - right across from the beach and a short walk to town. We are going back this year and can't wait! Highly recommend.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

In August, our family had a wonderful vacation in Rockport, Mass. Our visit was definitely enhanced by staying for one week at the Beach & King Beach House. The photos were a great representation and the property was very clean and well maintained. The owners seemed to have anticipated our needs beautifully with plentiful linens and a fully equipped kitchen--certainly comfortable for a family of 14!!! The layout of the house AND THE PORCH accommodated our family to a tee. We loved being able to not only walk to the beach but to the town. We would love to return in the future and would not want to stay anywhere else but the Beach & King!

For over 160 years, people have traveled to Rockport for our miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters from around the world.

From the Beach & King is Front Beach, an active beach on Sandy Bay pointing toward the east. The beach is also within an easy walk from the Rockport village.
