This was my relations first holiday in the United States and I wanted them to have a real American style vacation experience, a vacation as I remember them from my childhood. This home and location did not disappoint. John understood what I was trying to create for the family and communicated with me via email throughout the previous winter. My relations were arriving from Ireland and John contacted me two days before to let me know the cottage was vacant on the night before their arrival if I wanted to go in a night early "no charge". This was a thoughtful, as well as an excellent, start as I was able to set everything up before collecting them from the airport. They were enchanted by the home and the area which is just what I wanted. It was clean and well maintained offering comcast TV and broadband but retaining that beach cottage feel which was so important to me. I have since recommended it to both friends and relations knowing if they book this home they will enjoy every minute or be very hard to please. We toured most of N.H. and Massachusetts using the beach house as our base. My family particularly enjoyed dinner at BJ's boathouse at the end of the beautifully scenic coastal drive up route 1A into Portsmouth. The 'Old Salt' at Lamie's in Hampton Town was another hit, but there were so many lovely places in the area it was hard to get them all in! John and Judy were wonderful if we needed them and delighted to talk with my family who wanted to meet Americans at home! The fishing trip from Hampton pier for the men in the party was a great way to entertain them while we went shopping in Kittery Outlet Mall! But we all loved the fireworks cruise on a Wednsday night!
If you are looking for the beach experience you remember from you childhood look no further, this home and location have all the memoriable pleasures! Thank You John and Judy:-)
