About this listing
Rest, Relax, Rejuvenate - Fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean right outside your bedroom window. Early birds can enjoy the breathtaking sunrises while sitting in the backyard with their coffee/tea.
This charming 1 bedroom apartment has a queen-size bed for one or two guests. (Please respect our wishes that there is to be no sleeping on the sectional sofa. If you need an additional bed, may we suggest you rent our 'Vacation By the Sea' unit.) The two bedroom windows in the Garden unit look directly out to the ocean allowing you to fall asleep and wake up to the waves. Living room has a sectional sofa with recliners on both ends, WiFi, Apple TV w/Netflix and HuluPlus, plus local channels. Although the kitchen is small, it is very efficient and has two comfortable chairs to eat at the counter. Full size refrigerator/freezer, includes ice trays, gas stove/oven, microwave, toaster, 5-cup coffee pot with filters, tea kettle. Dinner plates, salad plates, bowls & mugs, pots/pans, silverware, glasses, oven mitts, dishtowels, dish drainer, dish drying mat are also included.
Full bath includes towels, bath mat and hair dryer. In an effort to be 'green' we supply regular size bottles of body wash and shampoo/conditioner.
Parking for 1 vehicle in private driveway in spot marked 'B'.
The apartment has it's own private entrance. Guests are welcomed to sit out in the yard overlooking the water, but please keep in mind that voices carry easily on the water so low voices are appreciated, not to mention your conversation will be more private.
Interaction with guests
We are open and friendly people if you need us for anything, but will respect your privacy to enjoy your vacation.
Rest, Relax, Rejuvenate - We are located along the coast of Salem Harbor in the charming and friendly neighborhood of Salem Willows out on peninsula of Salem Neck. Feel like going into town? Check out the City of Salem Calendar of Events for the latest happenings;
We are off the beaten path of historic Salem, but only 2 miles to town, 2 miles to the Salem Depot for a train ride to visit Rockport/Gloucester or Boston and only 1 mile to the Salem Ferry if you'd prefer a boat ride into Boston. Uber is a very popular way to get around if you don't have a vehicle...or even if you do and don't want to deal with finding parking.
Other things to note
This is not a 'party' house. Please be respectful and keep things quiet between 9pm and 8 am. When sitting in the yard in the evening please keep voices low as they carry easily....remember this is a neighborhood and not everyone is lucky enough to be on vacation :)
We prefer no one sleeps on the sectional sofa. If you need two beds please consider renting our 'Vacation By the Sea' unit. There is absolutely no smoking allowed anywhere on the property, including outdoors as the smoke comes into our windows and those of our neighbors. If you need to smoke please enjoy a stroll along the coast when doing so...Thank you. While we love animals, we ask that you find a loving caregiver for your pet while you are enjoying your vacation here. We ask that you take care of our property as you would your own.

My husband Raymond and I have been together over 30 years. He is a Construction Project Manager and I am the sole proprietor of a wellness studio a few miles away in Beverly. We have a daughter, a son and three teenage grand kids; ages 17, 18 and 19. We both love riding motorcycles; I ride a Yamaha V-Star 1100 and he rides a Honda VTX-1300...and yes, the grand kids think we are cool because we do :)
We are early birds...typically up by 5-5:30 a.m. even on the weekends. We are friendly, easy-going and other than the fact that I can be chatter-box, we are pretty quiet folks :)
We will stay out of your way to let you enjoy your stay, but please let us know if you need something or if we can be of some help to you during your visit.
