About Rebecca Borden
My mother has owned in this property since 2000. I moved back home in 2009 to help support her. We decided to join VRBO in Nov'11 after we had such a positive experience renting ourselves through VBRO. We have enjoyed hosting some great guests from all over the country and internationally! This apartment is an 'in-law' apartment on the second floor of the house where we live on the first floor. We love sharing our property, pool (in summer) and landscape with our guests. As our reviews confirm, we have had many happy guests. We do not rent for extended stays because, while we have had many amazing visitors, we did have a few bad apples . We are cautious about sharing our property with incompatible 'neighbors' for extended stays. Those are our terms and we hope you respect our perspective. As a policy, we do not give out our address for privacy and security reasons. We live here along with our neighbors in one of the best kept secret locations on Cape Ann. We feel our online reviews speak for themselves.

Wish it was cleaner
First let me just say Rebecca and her mother were very hospitable and nice. She even shipped us back some clothes we accidentally left behind. I just wish the place was cleaner. Spiders (dead and alive) and cobwebs in almost every corner, under beds and couch. Long black hair in the shower upon arrival. And a toenail in the living room GROSS! Overall the place should have been ALOT cleaner. Also, beds were very uncomfortable.
Wow is all I can say
Rebecca and Dot have a lovely place with gorgeous gardens and a harbor view, and a beautiful swimming pool. They were welcoming, friendly and guided us to restaurants and places of interest. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was provided for us, they thought of everything. We look forward to going back again soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your home.
These were two couples traveling together - great fit for our 2BR/2BA apartment. Irene had been here decades ago and really enjoyed showing her friends Gloucester and Rockport. They loved sitting outside and watching the harbor. They also really enjoyed our 3 Labs. Hoping they come back again next year!
Great location, beautiful view, great communication with owners. Highly recommend.
Marta and her family were in town for a family wedding at Gloucester's Beauport Hotel. We gave them insider's view about what to do, see and where to eat in town. Our recommendatoins were 100% spot on
My husband, myself, and our two young girls had a fabulous time staying at Rebecca and Dot’s home. Their dogs Stella Chester and Dash were so fun to come home to and play with in the yard and the pool. You couldn’t ask for a more relaxing or beautiful view, and Dot and Rebecca were awesome hosts giving us great tips on where to eat and what to see, and having everything we could have needed for our beach trips. Thank you ladies for sharing your wonderful home with us!
We loved you and your family! We hope you book again with us next summer. Because summer family vacations make a lifetime of memories!

Great views and perfect for pet owners
Views were fantastic
Very pet friendly
Super accommodating owners, work very hard to make your stay perfect. Second floor of quaint New England home stocked with basically everything one would need including 3 great labs.
We really try to make everyone feel at home our property. which we share with our 3 Labs. Sometimes our guests like our 3 Labs the most!
Owner of the property was really friendly and easy to communicate , but when I entered the house I was disappointed , because rooms wasn’t clean and the kitchen counter , carpets and couches covered with dog furs . And bathrooms weren’t clean either . Most disappointing part was when we heard that during our stay every day at 4 o’clock their dogs will be swimming at the pool . But after we complained she was quick to respond and came to clean the rooms (however it wasn’t clean enough ) she was polite and attentive.
I am glad I was acknowledged as being polite and attentive. These guests followed a strict form of Muslim and I knew the accommodations they needed pertaining to food surfaces and female coverage.
THEY LEFT OUR PROPERTY A TOTAL PIG STY. There was urine all over our toilets and they didn't even pick up dirty kleenex off the floor. It took us 3hrs to get it clean for our next guest. THESE WERE OUR WORST GUESTS EVER!! Rated her as such.
Gloucester has some of the *best* whale watching in the world - operates May - Oct.
