Afternoon Delight: Toast the beauty of the river from the waterfront deck
Toast the glow of another gorgeous day on the riverfront wraparound deck of Afternoon Delight in historic Beverly. A decorative columned portico and farmer's porch welcome you into to this immaculate and restful vacation rental home. Start in the foyer which opens to a carpeted living room with windows on 3 sides for an amazing view of the changing river scene. The updated and fully equipped kitchen, with new (2016) lighting and chairs, is complemented by a sweet waterview dining area.
The thoughtful owners have installed an exterior awning (newly replaced in 2016) which covers the upper deck (with a dining table to seat 6) which is the perfect place to watch the river currents glide by in the shade. Walk through the galley-style kitchen with lots of counter and food prep space leading to a small study area and on into a spacious bedroom with queen bed and adjacent handicapped-accessible full bath. The bathroom and mudroom both have brand new flooring (2016).
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one queen and one with twin beds, and an additional bathroom with tub. The house has wireless internet, a smart TV with Netflix in the living room, a TV in two of the bedrooms (not the twin bedded room) and central air throughout. The lower terrace is fully fenced in and has a grape arbor for relaxation in the verdant shade.
Nestled in a cul de sac and fronting on the river, this beautifully renovated property provides easy access to Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester by the Sea, Ipswich, Newburyport, Salem, Marblehead and Boston. The house is also conveniently located near Landmark School, Bishop Fenwick High School, Gordon College, and Endicott College, offering students, their families, or anyone at all a comfortable and lovely home base convenient to endless local delights.

Fantastic location, very clean and comfortable house
Charlie C. from Conshohocken, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 Booked this house for 2 couples to Whale watch in Gloucester and visit Salem. I'll start with the only downside: in hot weather the thermostat cannot be set below 71 degrees, and make sure you understand the effect of the tides on the waterways (mud during low tide).Great location with easy access to both Gloucester and Salem. Breakfast place within walking distance that has fantastic food. Try Candlepin bowling right in Beverly- its a hoot. Try the Ryan and Wood Distillery tour in Gloucester (in an office park). The Causeway restaurant in Gloucester is a local favorite with incredible seafood. Cape May Brewing has a really good IPA selection. Captain Bill's Whale watch was great on a little smaller boat that was better than the larger ones. Morning Glory in Gloucester for breakfast was terrific and a walk along the Fisherman's Memorial across the street to work off the meal was delightful and some interesting history. We had a fantastic time and came back each night to a super clean house where we could relax in the Living Room, Dining area, and kitchen with our own food and snacks. Highly recommended and would definitely book again.
Richard K. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 32 days in August, 2015 I have been renting vacation homes for seven years and this one was by far the best experience ever. From the home itself to the rental agents everything was first class and I would rent it again and deal with the people at AVH who were very helpful and professional. It was serene,scenic and supplied with everything one needs.
Gayle W. from Wenham, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 My family and I spent a week at the house and we loved every minute. The house feels like a home away from home. It's easy to find everything you need to cook and clean. The couches are comfy and the deck is that extra touch that makes it all worth it. The bathrooms were clean and in good condition. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a place to retreat to and enjoy the views.
Property Manager Response: Response from AVH Realty Inc Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and felt at home in Afternoon Delight.
A guest from La Habra, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2014 I would like to say that it was awful, in order to discourage others from renting it so much, BUT IT WAS FABULOUS! My family loved it and it was the perfect location to where we needed to be.
A guest from Greeley, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 Our time at Afternoon Delight was exactly as the name describes. The accommodations fit our need and the views outstanding. Being flatlanders just minutes from the Rocky Mountains, seeing the tide changes was amazing and a new experience. We would recommend Afternoon Delight to anyone seeking accommodations in the greater Boston Area.
A guest from Tawanda, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 A convenient location for sight-seeing in the Boston and northern sea-side towns of MA.Relaxing on the deck in the morning and evening was a real joy and the property was very clean and well maintained.The only negative experience was the air conditioning which is set at 71 deg. and can not be lowered. This made for some uncomfortable nights on hot muggy days.
Julie M. from Sheridan, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2014 My husband, children and my parents stayed at this house rental for 9 days and I can't say enough good things about it! The kids LOVED it, loved the river and house itself. My husband and I fell in love with the views and the town of Beverly. The location was peaceful and quiet, yet things to do were close by. The house was super clean and had great furniture throughout, which is hard to find in vacation rentals. The property management team was exceptional and professional. The mobile phone app for the property was great to have and very, very helpful. The only thing I can "complain" about is the checkout time. It's at 10:00am and it would have been nice to have a noon checkout. If the management could figure that out, it would be a great bonus :)All in all, great, great house/location/management, which complemented our fantastic visit to Boston. We can't wait to come back!
Property Manager Response: Response from AVH Realty Inc We're glad you and your family had such a wonderful time in Cape Ann and Boston! The town of Beverly really is a wonderful place for both children and adults, so it looks like you chose a perfect location! We thank you for the compliments about our performance, and we're thrilled that we could help you make the most of your vacation - We hope to see you next summer!!
Hale D. from Ovecler Cankaya, Ankara recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in October, 2013 It has been an amazing holiday for us. The location was really convenient. The house was really homey, clean and beautiful. It was a house that could answer to all needs. The view enchanted us. Since it was located in one of the best and most central places in Mass it shortened our trip times. We reccomend this property to everyone.
Jason E. from Boston, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Afternoon Delight in Beverly, MA is a great vacation home if you are looking in the Beverly, MA area. It has everything a couple or family needs from a vacation home if Beverly is the desired location.
Property Manager Response: Response from AVH Realty Inc We are so glad that you enjoyed Afternoon Delight, and your surroundings in Beverly. We hope that you come back soon!
Lisa G. from Syracuse, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 We rented Afternoon Delight the last week in August. The house is beautiful! Well equipped, clean, comfortable and a wonderful view from the back deck. The location was terrific - just 30 minuted from everyplace we wanted to go (beaches, Boston, shopping). We had a terrific week and look forward to renting this place again!
Paul S. from Lubick, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in July, 2012 For us it was a great vacation house. Location is not Rockport but this is a gem with more conveniences. I give it 6 stars out of 5 overall but it is not your total 'getaway' beach house and it is not meant to be that, just in case you are looking for that. It is a wonderful, fantastic property and I cannot say enough about it. I look forward to going back in the future.
