I rented this cape for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 winter seasons. The home is on a quite street, walking distance from the beach. My children felt at home and safe there. The kitchen is sunny and open. The house is fully furnished and very well-maintained. The owners keep it very clean as well. In the winter the beach area is pretty well deserted so traffic is not an issue. I enjoyed the close proximity to Portsmouth and Newington. This home was a very pleasant way-station for my family as we searched for a new permanent home.
