  • Perfect Getaway House!


    This is the best short-term rental house I've ever stayed in. The experience from beginning to end was easy and seamless; the owner is lovely. The house is perfectly appointed with great linens and plenty of kitchen supplies.

    It is comfortable and homey and there is no beating the view. Overall, it was lovely and we hope to return soon.

    Incredibly beautiful house and setting right on the sound. Playing bags on the back lawn with the sun setting over the water was a moment I’ll never forget. The house is over 100 years old so it has a quirk or two, but it more than makes up for it with all of its charm and comfort—the beds were all incredibly comfortable. Jane is a great host as well. I look forward to staying here again!

    This was our second time staying in Jane’s home and we have a third stay booked already. We love this home. The location is so close to everything! The home has the best yard. Space to play games in the beautifully manicured yard as well as the most most amazing view. The house is a home. If you’re looking for a a place with the bare minimum, this is not it . It has the feel of walking into a family home. Lots of different places to hang out with beautiful views throughout the home. Lots of extras from the kitchen spices and cookware to games for all ages. It’s the perfect place to gather with family .
