This location is soooo amazing and the view from the balcony is absolutely stunning!!!! It was centrally located and we were able to walk to restaurants and shops in downtown Gloucester within 5-10 mins. We also walked to all of our activities such as whale watching (about a 20 mins walk). If you walk the opposite direction from downtown you will reach the seawall to the fisherman's memorial. Mark was incredibly welcoming and wonderful to work with in terms of organizing our check in etc. Also, prior to arriving in Gloucester, Mark responded very quickly to messages and answered any questions we had about the area as well as the apartment. He also offered us complimentary tickets to the Gloucester theater. Unfortunately we did not have time to go to one of the shows. He also provided us with a complimentary baked loaf that we had for breakfast one morning. I would recommend this apartment to everyone. I think the only criticisms I can think of are the bed mattresses (they were a bit hard) and the bit of noise that you hear from the business beside the apartment. This won't be a problem if you are early risers, but if you tend to sleep in a bit you may hear some noise within the building. A fan for the bedrooms (to drown out noise) and some mattress foam toppers would definitely remedy these two (very minor) criticisms. Overall, what a great apartment and location! My friend and I had a wonderful experience in Gloucester and I definitely plan to head back.
