I've stayed at a lot of Airbnb places and this ranks up with the best! Very cute and clean studio, with a side space for an air mattress as well as the double bed in the main area. There's a piano! Lovely neighborhood and close to downtown and to a beach. I'd definitely stay here again! Great price!
Lovely winter visit to Gloucester. Barbara was helpful about finding a easy time for both of us to get the key and settle in. There was event some fresh banana bread in the studio! Everything was clean and tidy, an easy place to rest for a few days after the Thanksgiving holiday. I'd definitely stay there again.
Barbara was a fantastic host. The apartment was everything we were hoping for. There were thoughtful touches sprinkled throughout-- I won't give them away so you can enjoy the surprises yourself, but I will say that I strongly recommend this rental. You can't go wrong with: 1) a pleasant, cheery host, 2) great accommodations and location, and 3) a reasonable price.
We had a lovely stay at Barbara's beach studio. She advised us on nice hikes and good restaurants. We really recommend others to stay with her.
Barbara was a wonderful host and provided lots of info about the area for photography and sightseeing. The neighborhood where the Airbnb is located is very nice and minutes away from the ocean. The studio is very light, airy and clean. Loved it!
The Airy Beach Studio is located in a pretty neighborhood on a hill over-looking the ocean. You can see a bit of the water from inside this basement apartment. Barbara is a wonderful host who is completely unobtrusive. We knew she was there, but only saw her upon our arrival. She made us feel at home and included everything we might need for our four-night stay. She even baked a loaf of banana bread for us, which was delicious. She provided coffee and creamer, pop and beer were also in the fridge. The bed was comfortable and the large bathroom with a heat lamp was also appreciated.
Barbara (& Gary) are incredible hosts. From the first hello to the last goodbye, everything was perfect. The studio was neat, clean and very comfortable. The outside area was perfect for morning coffee and the welcome banana bread Barbara made (delicious!) They were social but also kept their distance. The house is a short walk or ride to the beach - a great perk!! Great place to stay when in Gloucester. Can't say enough good things about Barbara. We will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone.
Barbaras Studio was fantastic, comfortable and in a fantastic location. The space completely exceeded my expectations.
The Studio was very well equipped, with everything you would possibly need, including a refrigerator filled with drinks and milk, beach towels and chairs, and a welcome sign. The apt is light and airy with a very comfortable bed, and another overflow air mattress, should you need 2 beds.
The location was great, just .6 miles from one of the most beautiful beaches in Gloucester! It is a very easy walk on a quiet street down to the beach, and groceries and restaurants are nearby. I really appreciated the lack of drive by traffic.
Barbara was a very sweet and gracious host.
Spacious, private and comfortable, Barbara's place was the perfect base to explore Gloucester, Rockport and the local beaches - even Boston is within easy reach if you want a base away from the hubbub. Barbara herself couldn't have been a better host - friendly, easy going, knowledgable and respectful of our space. Provisions in the fridge on arrival were a kind touch. The flat has everything you'll need, from your own car space out front to a spare aero bed. We were there for a week and access to the laundry (from the flat) was invaluable too. Definitely recommended.
Barbara and Gary spent 2 nights as my guests and could not have been nicer. They are considerate, pleasant and very clean guests. They had activities planned around town and had an enjoyable, positive attitude during their stay. I would highly recommend them as guests to other hosts and I would be happy to welcome them back to my home in the future.
For me hosting Barbara and Gary was more than a guest-host experience, as I feel that I've found real friendship in their visit to my home in Barcelona. They are honest, warm and very respectful, and I felt sad to see them go when we said goodbye on their last evening. They are wonderful guests to have, and I personally look forward to seeing them again very soon.
