Reviews for this vacation apartment rental in Newburyport, Massachusetts
Santa Cruz, CA
Fantastic place to stay
May 28, 2014
The Dardinskis are such gracious hosts. After a long flight into Boston, we arrived very late into Newburyport (2am) and they left the light on for us and even had coffee for us, ready to be made in the morning when we finally got up. The space is light, airy, and wonderfully decorated with paintings (perhaps by a local artist?) and if you look at the photo in the living room, of the rock climbers, you can see what the owners are up to when not busy with making this rental space pristine and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the gas fireplace in the cool early mornings with coffee and a book from the many choices the owners have placed in the library. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, pots, pans, and glassware we needed to host several dinners with family. The location is just a short walk to town, the rail trail, and to the walkways along the river and oceanside. My husband had some editing to do and appreciated the quiet residential area in which to work. We highly recommend this place to any couple who wants to spend some time in Newburyport. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Alex and Kate for making such an inviting vacation rental!
