  • Cute Cottage


    We were very happy with the locale and setting of the cottage. Nice, quiet end of street and right on the bay. It was a bit smaller than I figured on, but still adequate for 5 people. It was clean and nicely decorated. Our only issues were found in the kitchen: no recycling basket, very few useable pans when we were cooking a dinner & breakfast. Nothing to cook bacon in that didn't stick madly! And the kitchen could definitely use more cooking accessories … no peeler, no masher, hand-held mixer or rubber spatula? ran out of plates & silverware pretty quickly. Just some ideas for future improvement. A kitchen range hood and bathroom fan would be nice additions as well, it got pretty smoky after cooking and the bathroom was steamy with only a tiny window to open. Lastly, some higher quality bed pillows and actual mattress pads would have made the sleeping arrangements perfect, the mattresses were quite comfortable. We don't prefer sleeping on a mattress with just a sheet, memory foam gets really hot and it's not much of a barrier to previous renters' DNA?!

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Amy, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at this cottage and appreciate your thoughtful suggestions. We followed up with the homeowner who would like to share that they will add more cooking accessories and pans to the kitchen, as well as mattress pads to the beds. A bathroom exhaust fan is on the list for future improvements. Thank you again for providing such valuable feedback.

  • Peaceful getaway


    We brought groceries with us and got to view the beach each morning, and gaze at the stars each night. Quiet and secluded. Just what we needed to get away

  • Quaint cottage with spectacular views


    The cottage was located in such an amazing spot right on the water with spectacular views. We enjoyed simply sitting on the deck for coffee and drinks and gazing at the water and boats passing by. We also had a great time walking along the rocky / shell beach exploring the sea life at the waters edge and Common Fence Point, which gives a great 180 degree view. When it was slightly chilly we were still able to take in the view from the couch in front of the gas fireplace. We liked how the decor had modern touches but still felt cozy. The only minor complaint I have is that the floor is uneven between rooms but after a few trips I became more aware and cautious. I absolutely would love to stay at the cottage again and likely will next year.
