  • We loved this cottage and housing community!


    My mother, 6 year old daughter, and myself had a great time in the Beach Dreams complex. It reminded us of a campground, and everyone there was so friendly and nice. Our cottage was in the PERFECT location for my daughter to ride her bike, as this house sits right on a little loop surrounding a Bocce court. This cottage was also closest to the pool and Rec room which are right across the way. We enjoyed having our breakfast outside on the little patio table. One day it rained and I enjoyed reading on the enclosed porch. The kitchen pots, pans and glasses etc. were clean and new. It was well supplied with other kitchen needs such as a Keurig, sandwich bags and napkins etc. The community is on Route 1, which is a busy street to cross if you're biking to the beach like we did, but lucky for us there is a cross walk right at the entrance to the community! So we enjoyed the short bike ride to Moody Beach, North Beach, and Wells Beach. Lastly, the owner Shawn was wonderful! It was pure chaos the morning we checked out due to an unexpected walk in clinic visit, and we were grateful Shawn was so understanding of our circumstances.

    We really enjoyed our stay! It was very easy communication with the owner/host Shawn. The home itself was very comfortable. The location was quiet. My Mom loved the 3 season porch. It was easy to get to all the different places we went to including the beach, shops, and restaurants.I would definitely return to the cottage!

  • Disappointing


    We were responsible for cleaning the linens before leaving. I didn't pay an outrageous cleaning fee to do their job. This place wasn't cheap and we ended up leaving a day early due to the mice wandering around at night and getting into our groceries on the counter. They need to clean up their act , quite literally.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Christine, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - I contacted pest control after your report to have the property inspected. They placed traps and bait around the cottage. They have been monitoring it since and have found no mice inside the cottage but did catch a few underneath in the crawl space area.
    - I connected with my housekeeping team, and they did not find any evidence of mice in the cottage before your arrival.
    - Most rentals in the area do not include linens and expect guests to supply their own. We provide linens as a courtesy but doing so requires ensuring they are clean for the next guests.
    - Our cleaning service doesn't include laundry, and we asked guests to do so because there is usually only a four-hour time frame between guests.
    - We carefully set competitive rates for our property after a thorough analysis of the property itself and the surrounding area.
    Thanks for letting us know about your stay!

  • Amazing vacation

    We loved this cottage. It is very centrally located within the complex right next to the main pool so very convenient w kids. Central ac did not work and we communicated w the owner about this. The ac unit worked but it wasn't a very hot week so we were ok. I would worry it wouldn't be enough on a hot humid week. House has everything you would need - don't bring much! Beach gear and toys as we as umbrella available to use as well as games to play in the home. I would bring my own sheets and towels next time FYI bc you are expected to wash and dry and have all linens and towels folded before check out. It makes for a stressful checkout day because the washer and dryer are small and takes awhile to dry heavy towels and sheets. Just something I wish I had known. Overall a great stay. We loved the cafe across the street for coffee and sandwiches ( get the gobbler!) and we loved biking around the complex w the kids. Complex has a great pool and hot tub as well as gym.
