Liann, I have to give you a thumbs down. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable. The unit is advertises as an apartment. It is really a roomy bedroom, private bath, and a cheesy kitchenette. Kitchen - The mini mini fridge was woefully inadequate. It held a bottle of wine, some juice, milk, a couple of bottles of beer. The freezer compartment was not big enough to host a tray of ice cubes. And it has been a while since the freezer was defrosted. When I brought a take home container back to my unit, I had to take some items out of the fridge to make room. So I had to use my small cooler, and purchase ice daily to keep things cool. Buy a decent fridge. An under the counter unit would be perfect, and they are cheap. Oh, by the way there is no counter. There is a small bathroom vanity sink, and two carts - one holds the fridge & a small microwave. The other holds a coffee machine. The lighting over the kitchen area is inadequate. And there were a couple of dirty glasses. The porch - it’s a beautiful porch. Unfortunately, there are two small funeral home folding chairs and a little bookcase and nothing more. I’m a small person, and those chairs were awful. Come on guys, you can visit any box store and purchase two comfortable patio chairs and a small table for less than $50. Bathroom - mold around the base of the shower. A towel hook on the door is missing, so there are screw holes, and nothing more. The hand towel holder is loose and ready to fall off. It would be nice to have an outdoor line to hang beach towels etc. The rear yard is huge, probably enough room to install a line. Welcome amenities - essentially none. There is a loose leaf booklet. It contains one restaurant menu, and some info from 2018-2019. This stuff is really important for visitors, especially under covid restrictions and the Visitor’s Center being closed. I was looking forward to exploring the Rail Trail, but I didn’t have a map. Finally, the advertised rate was $147 per night. But with added fees, taxes, covid sanitization costs, etc, my two night stay cost $521. For that amount of money I expect, no I demand more. I was surprised to learn that you represent a property management company, you are not the homeowner. I hold you and the homeowner responsible for letting the unit go unattended. I am posting my review on social media. Joyce Paul

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The space is comfortable and quiet. The furnishings are fine -- king size bed, nice layout, small refrigerator, microwave, kitchen table is nice workspace. And in these times of Covid, additional good features are the separate entrance, the separate air-conditioning system, and a pretty patio in the backyard.

Pleased with the stay. Suite was exactly as described and perfectly suited for our needs. Very great location, close to many beaches, shops, restaurants, and downtown Newburyport. Hosts were kind and responsive if needed. SImple check in / check out system. Only thing I would have liked would be an earlier check in time. 4pm is late considering we had to be out at 10am. It would have made the first day easier, if we could have checked in at an earlier time.

Very lovely and roomy place. Sweet little touches like a full bookcase, bottle of wine (delish), bottle of water, truffles, and coffee. Great recommendations for local places to eat. (Lorettas was fabulous too, stay away from beach coma except for the music/bar atmosphere). Loved the location. Highly enjoyed my stay!!

Amazing stay at Liann’s Christmas Tree apartment on High Street in Newburyport, Ma! Having grown up in this town, I found a weekend from NYC to come and visit my family. staying at this lovely apartment was just what I needed as a little getaway and also to reconnect with the sites and beauty of this quaint little town. Thank you Liann, look to possibly stay with you again! Best, Jonathan

Bar soap and shampoo should have been provided. There were very few television stationsmany were blocked. The apartment was in a good location, close to downtown. The space itself was okay, nothing special. We expected more.

what a wonderful find! My family and I had a fantastic stay at this property for a few nights. Great, walkable location to the town. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Parking is a huge plus! It was very nice for them to accommodate an early check in for us as we were travelling with a toddler. This was much appreciated!

We found the suite to be exactly as described. It's situated in a lovely location just a short walk to the waterfront and its many shops.It looks like it could've been a mother-in-law suite, beautifully preserving the character of the historic home. The entrance opened into a short hall. To one side is a bedroom with a shuttered window for adequate privacy, the 2nd window provides privacy via the landscaping, thus allowing good light to enter through large windows. Hub and I slept well on the bed, which had longer, body style pillows, adding to our comfort. The kitchenette was minimal, in that it provided a microwave and dorm room style refrigerator, 4 person dining table, small sink with new sponge & detergent, dishtowel, 1 roll paper towels, some flatware, dishes, bowls, mugs, 10 cup drip coffee maker with several filters and one full pot worth of ground coffee, complimentary chocolates and wine. Off the kitchen, can be found the bathroom, decent size. One roll toilet paper, box tissue, hand soap and towel sets enough of each day were provided. I have a safety suggestion for the owner to consider. A grab bar inside the shower would improve the feeling of safeness while showering and even a small handle style grab bar on the outside of the shower.We would stay there again if visiting Newburyport in the future.
