This is the vacation house you have been looking for! It’s perfectly located only a few steps from the private & secluded section of Coffins Beach. As well as a short walk to the world famous Wingearsheek Beach. The younger crowd will love the excitement of the public part of Wingaersheek beach, while the private access to Coffins Beach is unexcelled for that quiet relaxing time. Why have to make a choice when you can have them both? All within a 2-3 min minutes walk, less than 2/10th of a mile to the private neighborhood section of the beach called Coffins beach. Or 1/2 of a mile to the white sands of the public side of Wingaersheek Beach. This immaculate and graciously appointed home is the perfect destination for discerning beach lovers who want only the best in accommodation, sea & surf, at the same time having the secluded privacy you have been dreaming of.

Housing accommodations are a perfect set-up for the extended family or share with the best friends. This location contains 3000 sq/ft. of housing for your enjoyment. This is one of the most private and secluded houses available in the area, as you will be quietly resting on 1.38 acres. Once you enter the private community by way of the guarded gate house and continue until Sleepy Hollow Pond you will turn on to your own private way and head up the driveway to the house, and you will immediately feel like you are on vacation and ready to enjoy your stay. All the while as it seems you are the only one around. You will be residing on your own 1.38 acres of private land. There are numerous outdoor custom built landscapes and a front patio to enjoy the beautiful weather and enjoy the wonderful privacy. As you walk-in the first floor entrance into the spacious custom tiled foyer/entrance, you will immediately feel the beach house charm! The first floor also contains an expansive open concept fully appointed eat-in gourmet kitchen featuring double built-in Jenn-Air ovens. The granite counters, custom cabinets, complete with Built-in counter blenders, and coffee grinder, pantry and stainless appliances completes this home so that it is the perfect place to be the ultimate beach home away from home. Produce your family’s favorite recipes or try some of the great local dining options, its all up to you. Beyond the 8 chair open concept, eat in kitchen, you can relax as you proceed thru to the spacious living room which contains the center-piece of the room, a beautiful custom stone built fireplace. Enjoy watching the 55” HDTV with the full surround system and music surround system (iPod friendly), or choose to relax in quietness, as the choice is yours. To your right you have two oversized custom French doors to the enormous and fully screened-in rear deck which has some spectacular water views over looking Sleepy Hollow Pond, which is a brackish pond teaming wide life. This is the prefect spot where you can relax on the outside deck furniture and sunbath privately instead of the beach if you prefer. As you continue around the first floor, there is the first of the three very nice bathrooms. For the more formal dining experience, you can always entertain in the Formal Dining room, if you prefer. You will also find the separate laundry area off the kitchen entrance/foyer. As you climb the stairs to the Lower Level. You will enter into the entertainment area which contains a large TV, and a spacious and comfy living room sets, and don’t forget you can always challenged each other at the 3-in-1 game table, with your choice of pool, ping pong and air hockey. Perhaps you prefer to play Xbox with your friends and family, and of course bring some family favorites, or sit at the beautiful Oak table and play table games or have a card tournament. It’s a great space while you’re not enjoying the beach. Additionally the sectionals do contain sleeping arrangements which can be used once the fun has ended! Once you are back on the main level and you climb the stairs to the second floor you will find the king sized master bedroom with cathedral ceilings It contains your own custom full-sized bathroom and another queen-size sofa set, and a large TV. The King size bed actually looks small in this space! There also is a huge second king size bed room, and an additional bedroom with Two Bunk beds set ups, one with pull-out trundle to round out the sleeping arrangements. The third full size custom bathroom is also located between the two bedrooms. In addition to the three bedrooms on the second floor, we also have a very large beautiful bedroom with a queen size bed in the loft over the garage, which gives you the added ability to have an another extra bedroom to fully round out this wonderful location. The house is air conditioned, if you prefer, or you can enjoy the sea-breeze air and open the numerous oversized Anderson windows.

Family Reunion and 50th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay with family on this spacious, clean, well appointed home near Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, MA. The house easily accommodated my family of 3, my parents, my brother's family of 4 for a total of 9. The first night we had 2 extra for a total of 11 and there was plenty of room to sprawl out!

Location: The house is situated on a private gravel driveway on a hill overlooking a lovely pond across the street. The private beach is about a half a mile away of which you can use the golf cart to transport chairs, etc to and from the beach. The private beach is awesome but there is very little beach at high tide, so look at the tide charts to plan. The public beach is a little further away and parking is $25 They do have portable restrooms at the public beach. Exit 13 off RT 128 is where the house is, so it's a short drive north to downtown Gloucester where you will find everything you need. There is a small convenience store named Annie's, a good place to stop on the way to buy purple city mandated trash bags. There is also a lovely farm stand called Marshall's very close by where you can buy fresh local produce, eggs, marinated meats, baked goods, etc.

Accommodations: in a word, lovely. The house is very well maintained. No shoes are allowed inside and that is why it's so clean with beautiful wood floors. The large garage has a huge bedroom above with its own AC system that can easily sleep 3. The main floor has a half bath off the mud room, a large eat in kitchen, a dining room we never used, a large screened in porch overlooking the pond and a large living room with sectional sofa and huge TV. Downstairs is a nicely appointed recreation area with board games, pool table that turns into air hockey table, huge sectional sofa and another large color TV. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The first bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds that can sleep four. The second bedroom has a king bed. The master is huge and has a large walk in closet and en suite bathroom.

TIDBITS:

1- Trash- must be in purple bags for the city to take

2- temperature/ thermostat- locked at 73 for max lowest temp. I am used to setting it colder, so that was a challenge. I just turned the fan on higher and this enabled me to sleep comfortably

3- Golf Cart- in garage, pretty easy to operate, just make sure to charge it

4- kitchen- incredibly well appointed. They really have everything you need

We would rent again without reservation!!

Truly A 5 Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at Pete's beach house. The house is stunning. It is light, airy and super clean with an open floor plan and plenty of room. We were a family of ten and there was room to spare! The kids really enjoyed the game room. I fell in love with the enormous master bedroom. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything needed for a comfortable experience. Sitting in the sunroom at dusk watching the sun set over Sleepy Hollow Pond is relaxing and inspiring. The private beach is a short 5 minute walk. It was gorgeous and my kids actually found a seal playing on the beach in the sun.

Pete and his beautiful wife Tracy are a delight. They are super friendly and helpful. Pete was consistently prompt with any and all correspondence. Checking in and out was easy as pie. Pete was kind enough to allow me to throw a family gathering during my stay. It went off without a hitch and everyone raved about how amazing the house was.

To put it simply, I wish I could live here and be Pete's neighbor. I love it here.

Just an amazing Time! We really just loved the house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had visited the area for a college graduation for a member of our family. Everyone absolutely loved the stay and plan on coming back, and staying for a week in the summer. House was perfectly clean and fully stocked. The owner Pete is a pleasure to deal with. We cant say enough good things about our stay! 5 Stars all the way! Highly recommended & Top Notch!

Beautiful clean home near the beach

We absolutely loved our stay here. We were warmly welcomed, the house is beautiful and clean stocked with everything we needed. A shot 5 min walk to the most gorgeous private beach. We were thrilled with our experience. Will come again for sure.

Great Property

Beautiful house tucked away on the private side of the beach. Walking distance to the public side. House comes with all the necessities for a weekend or longer stay. Accommodating and great location.
