Overview

About the property

Apartment in Gloucester, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

Not just near the harbor. ON the harbor. A perfect scene all year-round across the bay of the Harbor, Ten Pound Island and the Paint Factory. Walk easily to harbor restaurants, supermarket, train, THE BEACH. A casual home with exceptional views.

SORRY no pets.

The Space

This is a privileged spot on Gloucester Harbor. Great for vacation or for a living space throughout the year.

Obviously, the key feature is the priceless view of Gloucester Harbor, looking over the bay to Ten Pound Island and Rocky Neck that hosts the famous Paint Factory.

It has 1 1/2 bedrooms, 22'' thick queen air mattress so host 7 people on beds including 1 queen, 1 twin, 1 sofa bed and 1 air mattress. And of course the prize-winning balcony view! There is a small spare bedroom with a single bed. One of the sofas in the living room folds out to a very springy bed.

Second floor apartment. It has a large kitchen closet and a spare room.

Guest Access

The whole apartment - and the view - is yours!

Interaction with Guests

I'll meet you upon check-in or moving in. Give an orientation to the place and the neighborhood.

The Neighborhood

This area hosts some of Gloucester's, and America's, richest maritime history. The harbor is the oldest seaport in US history. Remnants of this fishing town are still alive and well. Rezpned in recent years, the old Fort and Flats area as well as the old Birdseye factory create an environment of a renewal with antiquity. You are within walking distance to many conveniences and restaurants, both for locals and tourists.

Walk to the beach, downtown, and trains, notably the MBTA commuter rail to Boston and other North Shore towns.

Walk to the beach, playground, restaurants, supermarket, train station.

Car or train recommended for getting out of the main town area.

Lots of parking in front of the building which is a dead-end parking lot.

You can walk to nearby shops and restaurants. Even the Shaw's supermarket is just .7 miles. On Railroad Ave are banks, shops and the commuter rail to Boston.

Getting Around

A bike would be great and a car is needed for travel out of the area.

MBTA commuter rail is nearby for travel to Boston or other nearby towns.

We would return to this apartment in a heartbeat! The view alone is reason enough to stay here, but everything else added to the great experience we had. Mark met us upon arrival to show us around the place. The apartment is cozy and clean with plenty of room to relax. You can easily walk to the main street area and some of the other great sites of Gloucester. I recommend this place without any reservation.

If you are looking for luxury, keep looking. If you are looking for a clean, spacious, well furnished apartment with WOW--and I mean WOW--this is the place!

The many positive comments on the home page are not exaggerations. Staying here was like staying on a large houseboat moored on a wonderfully active harbor. If we are able to return to Gloucester, it is difficult to imagine staying anywhere else. Mark was very helpful in setting everything up for us and Alex met us at the door and gave us an introduction to the apartment. Thanks to both for making us feel welcome.

This location was perfect! Mark was a great host. The place was clean inside, spacious, the views were incredible! We enjoyed watching all the fishing boats going out and coming back in. Everything was within walking distance - lots of great places to eat. Mom's Kitchen for breakfast and Topside Grill for lunch and dinner were our favorites. Do not let the location or the look from the outside deter you from renting this place. We had a great time and couldn't have stayed in a nicer place!!

This location is soooo amazing and the view from the balcony is absolutely stunning!!!! It was centrally located and we were able to walk to restaurants and shops in downtown Gloucester within 5-10 mins. We also walked to all of our activities such as whale watching (about a 20 mins walk). If you walk the opposite direction from downtown you will reach the seawall to the fisherman's memorial.

Mark was incredibly welcoming and wonderful to work with in terms of organizing our check in etc. Also, prior to arriving in Gloucester, Mark responded very quickly to messages and answered any questions we had about the area as well as the apartment. He also offered us complimentary tickets to the Gloucester theater. Unfortunately we did not have time to go to one of the shows. He also provided us with a complimentary baked loaf that we had for breakfast one morning.

I would recommend this apartment to everyone. I think the only criticisms I can think of are the bed mattresses (they were a bit hard) and the bit of noise that you hear from the business beside the apartment. This won't be a problem if you are early risers, but if you tend to sleep in a bit you may hear some noise within the building. A fan for the bedrooms (to drown out noise) and some mattress foam toppers would definitely remedy these two (very minor) criticisms.

Overall, what a great apartment and location! My friend and I had a wonderful experience in Gloucester and I definitely plan to head back.

We had a very enjoyable experience. The unit is in a more industrial area (although that is almost a misnomer because it isn't a large area like Boston would be) but because the unit is where it is, the view is great - was always cooler than the warmer part of the city. Mark is Johnny on the Spot for anything that is required. There are places to eat within walking distance....shopping near by - could be walked to if one wanted to enjoy the experience of being in Gloucester more. There is a beach close by and playground.. For longer stays, the kitchen is fully equipped for eating in and there is a bbq as well on the patio. This is an apartment, not a hotel room which has advantages for everyone. Do not hesitate to think about this unit. It is priced very well for the area and is a great value on top of all the other pluses.

Great Experience!!. I was working in Gloucester and stayed at the apartment for 13 days.

I must admit that when I first arrived to the apartment I was kind of skeptical about the location because it is located in the small industrial/commercial like area; but don't be scared, the location it is as safe as it can be. The apartment is located in the second floor of a small warehouse, so when you first go through the outside door, you walk up a set of stairs to the apartment on the second floor. There is also office like areas to the side of the apartment that isn't unoccupied, but don't get thrown out by that. Once you go through the white door into the apartment, its a completely different story! The apartment is nice and cozy, and most importantly it is very clean! The view form the master bedroom to the water is spectacular. There are plenty of windows so you have unlimited view to the harbor. If you are looking for a place to relax where you can be by the water the entire time, this is your place! (as long as you get passed the outside entrance look).

Couple more things to add:

1) I couldn't make it to Gloucester during the first three days of my original booking due to unforeseen circumstances, and Mark (the owner) was extremely fair with me by moving the dates of my stay so that I didn't have to lose those three days.

2) Mark was away during my stayed but he had his parents take care of me. When I arrived, there was a welcome cake and card on the table waiting for me.
