Description

The space

Spacious, beautiful, top-floor private bedroom with a deck and glorious views of the ocean and a small fishing harbor. Bright and sunny, but cool as needed (window AC) on hot summer days. Adjacent private bathroom with jacuzzi for exclusive use by the guest(s).

Guest access

Guests have exclusive use of the room with its deck and the adjacent bathroom. Guests are welcome to share common areas (kitchen, living, dining, main deck, etc.) on the main (lower) level, but must communicate clearly about that with the hostess. One parking space on the premises is reserved for the guest(s).

Interaction with guests

Arrival time is between 4-5 pm, unless scheduled otherwise. Please ask me, if you wish to arrive at another time. I try to be flexible.

Departure time is no later than 12 noon, unless I approve otherwise. If you want to stay longer, please ask me in advance.

I am happy to show you places in Rockport and Cape Ann, such as Halibut Point State Park, the Atlantic Path, and/or my favorite seafood place and bakery. I can also give suggestions for places to dine out, etc., not only in Rockport/Gloucester, but also in Boston and Cambridge, if you feel like going to the "big city" during your stay. On the other hand, if you want privacy, I'll leave you alone :) This being said, this is my home and I expect guests to show courtesy and respect for my own schedule at all times.

Other things to note

VIoleta was an excellent hostess, and room and private we're extraordinary. If you want a rom with a view this is the place for you. Go to sleep and wake up with the sounds and sights of the ocean and a working harbor. Violeta likes to have a beautiful, quiet and clean place for her quests so she asks quests to respect neighbors needs for privacy and quiet and help keep the suite clean. We enjoyed our opportunities to visit in the evening and morning. Violeta is nice to visit with. She has vast store of interesting experiences, She is bright and fun to be around

Had a great stay, location was as described and was easy to find (look for the blue postbox). The room was large and the bed very comfortable with the bathroom next door. Violeta makes a great cup of tea and gives great local knowledge on places to visit.

Violeta made sure everything worked out. She is a friendly person and has a nice guestroom. We found it could be cleaner.

Great top floor suite, with lovely sea views, even the stormy seas courtesy of Hurricane Joaquim! Very warm & cosy throughout our stay. Violeta was very sociable & welcoming & we had a great evening chatting & sharing a bottle or two of wine. Local woodland & dramatic coastal walks to enjoy nearby. Great location, nice host.

violeta's house is very well positioned, and the parking is very convenient for those who, like us, have traveled by car. the terrace has a truly spectacular view. violeta was very kind in providing all the information and tips about the region. worth the stop!

The ocean view pent house is indeed a house with a good view. Early morning sunrise and late sunsets are beautiful. The listing was very accurate and Violeta was very very helpful in suggesting places to eat around, the trails in the park, and other points of attraction. Also, the house is beautiful and the location makes it very convenient to go to all the points of attraction. Violeta even showed us around MIT as we were going to be in the area the same time she was. The room is indeed beautiful but violeta makes you feel at home. We had a wonderful stay at Rockport and would definitely visit back. Its a perfect getaway!

Violeta was a wonderful host, from start to finish she provided a very enjoyable experience. She picked us up and dropped us off at the train station and provided great local advice on things to do and places to go in Rockport. The room was immaculate with an amazing view overlooking the harbor. Great for sunrises. Also, the bathroom was very clean and the shower was a real treat. Violeta made coffee for us in the morning and would have snacks waiting for us when we would get back from exploring the area. This was the best experience we've had with an Airbnb host and very affordable. I would recommend this as a good weekend trip to anyone from Boston!

Hi! Nice to meet you! I am an engineer by education, a teacher by vocation, and a world explorer by heart. I love the ocean, high mountains, and nature in general, and travel as often and as far as possible. Some favorite travels:

- ocean sailing! In the US, I am a Coast Guard-licensed captain.
- trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal - the highest so far is 5540 m
- dipping in natural hot springs in Iceland (or anywhere :=)
- doing pretty much anything in Middle Earth a.k.a. New Zealand

I use to host in Rockport, MA, on the Atlantic coast on beautiful Cape Ann. As a host, I offered what I look for as a guest myself: safe, clean, peaceful, and pleasant home stay - plus fast wifi and good local advice :)

Thanks for reading my profile. See you at home or around the world!
