About Eva and Joey Picarazzi

We grew up here in Rockport and have chosen to make this our forever home. There is no where else we would rather be! We attended Rockport's local schools through out our younger years. We have enjoyed many local festivals and love to partake in our children's school functions and contributing to our town's growth.

In our search for a home for our children we came across a quaint older home close to down-town. We rented for a short while until our landlord told us he was going to be putting our home and his five long-term rental units (located behind our home) up for sale. We decided with our long years of management experience and my (Eva) leasing and rental experience that we could buy it all and start our business in vacation rentals. We have taken our units and transformed them into themed vacation rentals! As each space became available we have been making them special and ready for you! Starting with just one unit last summer we quickly came to love our new careers!

Eva and Joey Picarazzi purchased this cottage in 2015

Futon needs mattress to be replaced. Place was clean, but shower curtain needs to be replaced.

Phone number for owners need to be posted for emergency. Couple of more coffee cups would have nice. Would recommend for stays!

Very nice and quiet. I enjoyed it very much

  • 4 of 5

It is a very nice place. The only problem I had was when it was cold out and those small heaters did warm the place some but not enough, maybe get a better heat system. Had great access to walking areas for my dog and was close to laundry and place to eat right across the street.

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The owners were super nice and always accessible. The cottage was clean and cozy. Very easy walk to art galleries and shopping, and you can see the water from the little front porch. The air conditioning was nice and cold and the futon perfect for watching movies. Thanks for a great stay!

Wouldn't Stay There Again

  • 2 of 5

First impression of the cabin was that It was cute/cozy and in a great location close to the beach, shopping and food. The down side was that all the dishes/cooking utensils still had food stuck to them from the previous people who stayed. Also the fan in the bedroom couldn't be turned on without the light being on because of the broken switch. The bed was super uncomfortable and the cable kept going out. Last would be that if you wanted to take longer than a 5 minute shower you couldn't wuthout the water getting ice cold. I probably wouldn't book again for those reasons, but really nice property owners.

Clean, accommodating owners, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, 85 year old grandmother, and I loved the cottage! So much better than a hotel. It was cute, clean, convenient and we were all very pleased. The owners were very accommodating in allowing us an early check-in. Upon arrival, we were notified of an extra set of linens ready for us, since my grandmother was able to join. We were pleasantly surprised at the items supplied; shampoo and conditioner, soap, coffee, creamer, olive oil, and more! I've stayed in locations where nothing was provided. I don't expect these amenities, but what a nice surprise. The decor was cute and beachy and set a fun, relaxing tone for our vacation by the coast. We visited over the hummingbird festival weekend. I added a window feeder and we even had a hummer visit during our stay. A nice treat for when grandma was resting at the cottage. Overall, we were very pleased. One item to note, there are a few ants over by the AC unit in the living room. Maybe looking for water in the heat, but we did notice a few ants, so we took care to keep any food in the fridge. Overall, great experience.
