Renter beware.

  • 1 of 5
Location is wonderful and the vistas and scenery are glorious. Morning coffee on the back deck while the tide was coming in was glorious, made even more fun by the hutch of rabbits livingin the hedgerows around the property. Neighbors we encountered on morning or early evening walks were very friendly.

However - Ugh! The house itself was dirty, and many of the furnishings were in disrepair. A shaker bench in the living room was broken - discovered that when we went to sit on it our first day there.. The furnture downstairs is filthy - really needs to be cleaned, sweat stained. The cable didn't work - service wasn't available - and the outdoor furniture was in disrepair - the bench on the deck was broken and the grill was missing a leg. You have to prop the stove up using concrete blocks in order to use it. We had to chase the owners down to get them to mail us the key - they forgot. Then we waited nearly 2 months to receive the deposit back.

We paid a premium price for the property, willingly, because we needed a place for a number of people to stay in order to attend a family wedding. We wanted a rental that wouold accomodate a couple of small family gatherings before and after the wedding. But the condition of the home and furnishings were such that it was difficult to entertain family. Would definitely recommend seeking other properties until this place get's cleaned up. We will be returning next fall to the area, but will be seeking another property. We learned our lesson on this one.

Owner's Response: This critical review was the first we heard from these renter's of any concerns they had. We have professional cleaning service come through between each renter and have always had positive comments about their work. Futon sofa downstairs was brand new this year, and chair is leather so not sure how they can say it was stained. Cable TV/Internet works perfectly - seems the renters just couldn't figure out how to use the remote. First we heard of BBQ missing a leg - but now that we are aware, we will be able to have it repaired right away. Deposits are returned within 30 days of receiving key back from renters - and renters failure to return key was the cause for the delay in this case. Keys were mailed to renters in time to arrive before their stated departure from home date, but apparently not early enough to meet the expectations of these guests. The cottage is advertised as being clean, comfortable but furnished with mostly second hand finds and definitely not stuffy and is priced very modestly. Note our other reviews were 5 star. Most of our guests return year after year.

Town of Fairhaven has lovely center with several historic Gothic style buildings that make up the town square. Founded in the 1600's it offers many interesting and historically rich learning opportunities. Sister city to New Bedford you won't want to miss a visit to the whaling museum, the fishing fleet centered in the harbor or the boat yards on the Fairhaven side of the harbor. You can catch a ferry to the islands as well. The bike trail built on an old railway runs from Fairhaven center to Mattappoisette and passes very near the cottage. The Buttonwood Zoo is also great fun for the whole family. If you want more wave action a day trip to Horseneck beach is a great outing located about 1/2 hr from the cottage.
