About this listing
Blue is for water! Enjoy a spacious, luminous bedroom with a private top-floor deck, views of the ocean and a small fishing harbor, and private bathroom with jacuzzi. Share common areas (living, dining, kitchen, main deck, etc.) with your hostess.
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).
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.
See my Ocean View Penthouse listing for description of the neighborhood. The Blue Room is in the same home. The room is available when I am at home; the entire place is available when I travel.

Other things to note
I do not have a TV. I have high-speed wireless internet, so you can stream movies or live TV, etc., as long as you use headphones.
Keep my home as clean as you find it, please. This is a living space, so I don't expect it to be spotless every second, but please pick up after yourself, especially if you eat at home. No dirty street shoes or beach sand on the hardwood floors - please wear house shoes or walk barefoot inside. No loud cell phone conversations, music, or internet noise; use headphones. No unannounced guests! The only person/people who can stay here are the one(s) on the approved reservation.
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!
