Great Location in Gloucester
This unit was a great location! It was easy to get to the train to go into Boston as well as to travel to other sites in and around Boston. My daughter and I loved to sit on the porch for breakfast and dinner. I felt very safe in the neighborhood. It was August and very hot and humid and I am not sure that the Boston area has whole house air conditioning as they do in the MidWest where we are from. We saw window air conditioners in many homes in the area. There were only fans and it was pretty hot. It was during the Olympics in Rio and we had no TV so we were unable to watch any of sports events. Also there was inconsistent and weak internet coverage so we could not access any Olympics, email, movies, etc. from our laptops as well. Despite these two concerns I would rent the unit again as it met our needs. The Gloucester area is Fantastic in so many ways and we enjoyed our vacation there!!! Also the owners let us arrive a day earlier than we had registered which was extremely helpful and did not charge an extra fee.

Visually sumptuous, with a most gracious welcome.
I had a chance to stay at this wonderful studio for 2 weeks and couldn't my believe good luck. This property, a former Unitarian Church and sexton's residence, has been transformed by Richard Emanuel (a fine artist with a professional background in design) from the spare utilitarian architecture typical of a New England protestant church, into a visual delight offering a richly textured decor that is a very charming. I found all amenities to be more than adequate and Mr. Emmanuel has a wonderfully open and engaging personality that is warm and genuine. The location is in the middle of East Gloucester and anyone familiar with the work of Edward Hopper would feel right at home as visually Gloucester today is not much has changed a hundred years ago and many of the houses and scenes look as if Hopper had painted them yesterday. A very cozy and comfortable hideaway and I will most definitely be returning.
