Not just near the harbor. ON the harbor. A perfect scene all year-round across the bay of the Harbor, Ten Pound Island and the Paint Factory. A short walk to town center. Well-appointed kitchen. Queen & single bed, pull-out sofa, high quality air mattress.

Walking distance to the town center where you will find a renaissance occurring. Ten minutes to harbor restaurants or the beach. A little further is the supermarket, train, wine shop, movie theater, more restaurants.

The space

This is a privileged spot on Gloucester Harbor. Great for vacation or for a living space throughout the year.

Obviously, the key feature is the priceless view of Gloucester Harbor, looking over the bay to Ten Pound Island and Rocky Neck that hosts the famous Paint Factory.

It's a one bedroom with a kitchen, living and dining area. And of course the prize-winning balcony. It has a twin bed in a smaller swing space, which could be used for sleeping or storage. The sofa in the living room is a pull out sofabed. There is a luxurious air mattress with a built-in pump.

This apartment is on the second floor.

This rental is like something I've never experienced. A group of my friends stayed here for a wedding down the street at the Beauport Hotel and it was everything we could've asked for and more. While also being literally steps from the hotel, the rental is located basically on the water. You can sit on the couch inside or on the deck over the water and watch the ships come in and out of Gloucester Harbor. It's an incredible sight to see. Also, it is a short walk to several restaurants, bars, shops, and many other store fronts. I recommend going to Virgilio's for a delicious sub or sandwich on their bread made in house. Our host Mark made checking in and out extremely simple and smooth and was also extremely helping in the booking process. The next time I'm up in the Gloucester area, I will absolutely be booking this rental again.

Mark's place has an incredible view, right on the water! We felt like we were in Venice, Italy! The main bedroom was cute with nice linens, and the kitchen is well equipped with amazing views. The bathroom is modest, but adequate. My two kids slept in the living room on an air matttress and on the sofa. There is another sofa in the main bedroom, so we used that as a "sofa." This is not a 4-star resort, but a unique place that we enjoyed.

Location, location, location. Nothing like smelling the salt air, hearing the gulls, fishing boats and so much more. We really love this place.

We wanted to be in Gloucester for Fiesta and the location was ideal to access all of the events and activities. It's a quick walk to downtown and the boulevard. The apartment was clean and well-appointed, and the deck above the harbor was a nice retreat.

This is a gem hiding in wolfs clothing. The view is SO AMAZING from every room. We felt safe the entire time even though it is on the commercial wharf area. Constant parade of boats Day and Night. Fog rolled in last night and the lighthouse was blowing its horn all night. Music to our ears!
