A guest from Chestnut Hill, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 38 days in August, 2015 Extraordinarily beautiful grounds with a very hospitable owner.The apt. was well stocked with amenities for summer activities. This unit is unground level and a bit moist with tile floors so the dehumidifiers provided need to run quite a bit when sun not out. Master bedroom also has no window but overall VERY comfortable
A guest from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2015 We had a wonderful time during our Malt Hill stay. The grounds (firepit, outdoor patio, pool, private beach,etc.) were exceptional and easily the highlight of the property. I had read beforehand that the unit could be a bit "buggy" and therefore I was not surprised. This was the only reason the unit only got 4/5 stars from me for cleanliness. The owner of the property, Joan, was welcoming, helpful, and friendly - while still giving our family privacy. Our family of five (including 3 small children) fit comfortably in the 2 bdrm unit for 10 days - no small feat for a rental property! The walk to West Beach was easy enough with the kids and on the rare days we didn't go there the pool made for a peaceful afternoon. We hope to return next summer!
Gayle S. from Pheonix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2014 We enjoyed our stay at Malt Hill. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The grounds of the estate are quite beautiful; it was an excellent place to enjoy the fall foliage. We only had 2 problems, one of which was fairly quickly handled. We couldn't figure out how to get the gas heater to work, so we had to make several calls to get help on that. Once we got the help, the heater kept us warm all week. The other problem was bugs. Each day we had to kill a few earwigs, spiders, or other creepers. We discovered a large gap in the weather stripping on the front door. Perhaps that's how so many bugs got in. Otherwise, the apartment worked well for us.
Lisa F. from Davie, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 The bottom 2 bedroom apartment is nice enough..The pro's of the property: We adored the grounds of the property, sitting by the lotus pond or walking down by the Oyster Camp and ocean views of Bakers island and the salt marsh...We loved the location. Manchester by the Sea, in particular, Calas, Captain Dusty's ice cream , Crosby's market and the drive to Rockport and Bearskin neck..the Gardens are enchanting they can only compare to possibly Monet's garden, a royal garden or a public garden..one of the most spectacular private gardens I have seen.The Con's: The property was loaded with mosquitoes, and I would recommend bringing plenty of bug spray. I used multiple times each day and still left covered with bites.. looked like I spent the week camping in the woods. Apartment had a lot of spiders, and beatles, mosquitoes, etc..not a big fan of bugs inside the house. No electrical outlet located in bathroom for hairdryer. When drying hair in other rooms, circuit breaker would pop and power would go I assume the outlets cannot handle this..clothes dryer only works on timed dry, if you set it to a preset dry function it shuts off after 5 minutes...We were a family of 4 and only had 3 bath towels, 2 of the 3 had bleach stains on them. We never used the pool because it was cool outside and it was not very conveniently located to the apartment...also because traveling from out of state, by airplane we did not have room to pack beach/ pool towels...I think these should be provided for the guests since property has a beach and a pool.
Property Manager Response: Response from AVH Realty Inc Thanks for the review, Lisa! We're glad that you all enjoyed the lovely grounds of Malt Hill, they are truly breathtaking. The local Cape Ann area definitely has a great deal of culture and perfect summer activities on offer. So sorry to hear about the trouble with the bugs-- all that natural beauty does come with its caveats and this year?s unusually rainy season has resulted in an increase in mosquitos. We will see what we can do to abate them in the future and to keep all that wonderful nature on the outside! To respond to your points: There IS an outlet in the bathroom that you didn't see--probably because it's to the right of the sink very close to the magnifying mirror. It's a little higher than one would normally find a plug but it was sited there so as to not disturb the exposed brick. We apologize for the lack of bath towels; we make it our policy to make sure that there is enough for each individual stay. Because many guests fly in, beach towels are also available--they're located on a shelf in the laundry area together with some folding beach chairs. The electrical problem was due to a circuit with GFI outlets that just needed to be reset. There is a night light on that circuit so folks will be able to tell that the plug needs to be reset when the light is out. The dryer needed a new sensor, all set! As always, our office is available to contact every day, through phone, email, and our new mobile app "AVH Welcomes You," to address these issues and make your stay truly ideal. We thank you for choosing Atlantic Vacation Homes and we hope to see you again next year. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

Thank you for picking up on the bathroom outlet, electrical concerns, and the dryer timer-- we will certainly bring that up with the homeowners. We apologize for the lack of bath towels; we make it our policy to make sure that there is enough for each individual stay. The inclusion of beach towels is not currently in our listing, but we understand your position and we will suggest that as an improvement on the house.

A guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in August, 2013 The location was ideal, and the grounds of the estate were like a park, beautiful maintained and picturesque from any angle. The rental units were very comfortable and well equipped. The owner, Joan was very friendly, responsive and hard working to make sure her guests were satisfied.
Susan O. from New Canaan, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2013 A magical spot. Feels like a European villa on the ocean. Very private with everything you could want - pond and waterfall, beach, pool, tennis, firepit, bike to beach and town.
A guest from Toronto, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit for a week. Expanding in to the other suites as more family joined us. We had 10 family members staying and still had plenty of space and privacy. It was an ideal setting for a family gathering.Everything about the Malt Hill was charming and well thought out. The grounds are truly a must see. We will be back. Thank you Joan!
Christopher G. from Decatur, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 We loved this property. It was beautiful and very comfortable. If there were not shells on the walls we would have thought we we in a Tuscan villa. Even though there are 3 units we had privacy and the kids loved the pond and the salt marsh. We usually stay in rock port, so we had to get use to a different location, that was my only complaint, but we will stay there again. The place is amazing, I highly recommend it, as does my husband and 2 girls (5,9).
More than you can imagine - down to the last little detail
A guest from Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 The property is exquisite. More beautiful than we imagined. There is a very ``zen`` feeling to the property. Between the private beach in the beautiful cove, the incredible pool, the grounds, the view for everywhere, ... there was nothing missing. Thanks to Esther at AVH for all the help and to Joan for the warm welcome to the property. We will be coming back for sure. Our kids are already plannning next year's stay at Malt Hill.
