Stay in your private guest room in a shared pleasant beach home. Private backyard with in-ground swimming pool and outdoor amenities. We're a welcoming academic couple, and the guest room is a study with lots of light, a comfortable bed and a desk.

The space

This is a shared airbnb accommodation with host family. As a guest you have free use to in-ground swimming pool and outdoor amenities. The guest room is a study with lots of light, a comfortable bed and a desk. Note that you will share a single bath with the hosts. The house is a block from the beach right in Rockport village, an hour north of Boston.

Rockport is a picturesque New England coastal town that is defined by the ocean; it is quiet with lots of charm. Our house is steps from Front and Back Beach, and within a ten-minute walk from the village proper. Our home is an ideal launching point for a stay on Cape Ann.

We especially welcome European visitors who are on vacation!

We don't provide breakfast, but there is Nate's just a block or so away at Front Beach, which has an excellent breakfast menu.

I so much enjoyed my stay. Rike went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of and knew what to expect. The guest room is so convenient off the front door, with exceptional storage. Having access to the full house was extra special--it is an environment full of books, music, art and genuine hospitality. It's also a great location for heading to the beach, galleries, and restaurants, too. I could not have imagined a better place or people.

Roger's home is quaint, lovely, clean, a very close walk to a town beach and shops, and has a delightful swimming pool. The room has a fridge and anything else you'd need for a couple of days. I hope to come back to visit again and go to the nearby state park as well as visit the shop and Nate's for breakfast. Thank you for a lovely visit! Rika was a wonderful host for me.

Secluded but walkable to the ocean and parts of Rockport. Roger and Riker were a breeze to coordinate with. Would love to have stayed longer in this relaxing space...

Rike and Tiger's home will remind you of a library--full of interesting books, well-kept and quiet. The room is cozy with a comfortable futon. Coffee is offered and breakfast options are nearby. I chose to bring in a few items to keep in the small refrigerator in the room. Rike was available if I needed her but respectful of my stated goal to wind down after a busy week. The whole stay was just what I needed to recharge.

Roger User ProfileRoger is a superhost.

I am an academic research librarian focusing on large-scale library information systems. My wife Rike is a professor of German language and literature at a nearby university. My academic background is history and anthropology, I did my doctoral work at UCLA and the Universität Göttingen in Germany. I am Quebecois (French-Canadian), I studied Ancient Greek as an undergrad, and can speak fluent German. I’ve lived, taught, and worked in Germany off and on for many years.

We’re active and enjoy ocean kayaking, biking (road and mtn), jogging, swimming, and travel. I’ve done a lot of long-distance bike touring in both Europe and North America. I’ve played guitar most of my life (singer-songwriter), love animals (I wanted to be a vet), and enjoy working with my hands, so much so that I built our house here in Rockport as a solo project (inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright).

I recently returned from a two-year stint working in Europe that included some 200,000 kilometers of flying (one day in Reykjavik and the next in Cagliari—a fascinating time!).
