Lovely cottage that is better than the Vineyard

Compact home with great views from rooms and special porch that seems to catch any available breezes. Great for family gatherings, though note that all toilets are upstairs, so if little kids or older guests you might want to be careful. Nice big dining table that could accommodate big family dinners with nice gas grill outside if you want to keep things cool. One lucky and very nice aspect of this home is the air condition that really works and is necessary on hot days. If possible I would rent again. A wonderful area with friendly neighbors. Enjoy.

Fantastic Home, Location, Owners.

This was a fantastic home for rent for our family of 3 adults and 4 kids. The property is gorgeous, with wonderful views from practically every bedroom and 2 killer porches. Lightning storms are a wonder to behold. There are 2 entry points to rocky beaches ~1 block away, good for scrambling/tidepooling (bring water shoes). For sandy beaches, Plum Cove is a 5 min drive away and the bigger beaches of Wingaersheek, Good Harbor and Crane's beaches are about 15 min away.

The home has great amenities (new bathrooms, washer/dryer/dw/NG stove/refrig) which make it super convenient for a home away from home. Not why you go away, but certainly makes it more civilized!

Finally, the owners were fantastic. The recommended restaurants were also recommended by our local friends (and TripAdvisor).

We loved this quiet gem, which was located close to so many things for all of us to do (key since we had a 3,6,9, and 12 yo!).

The only thing to note is this house may not be the best if one in your party is handicapped - there's ~2 flights of walk/steps up to the home, as that's how it affords its great views. Our 3 yo and my 75 yo dad had NO problems navigating it, but not the best if you're in a walker/wheelchair. For everyone else, this is the perfect place!

A picture-perfect setting

The house was beachy and fabulous; just what we were looking for. Perfect for family and friends to gather and watch an amazing sunset, relax on the porch, enjoy a meal. Very well equipped and comfortable. A climb up to the house but once you get there you won't want to leave! But you will, there's tons to see and do nearby.

If you visit this property you'll see why we've been here for three summers and why we intend to come back again! The house is situated beautifullly and has everything a premier location can offer. The sunsets are to die for!

Best family vacation, ever!!

Over the years, we have tried to get our five children and assorted mates and grandchildren together for family holidays. As the children have grown older, it becomes more and more difficult to find a time, and a place that "works". Our week in August was absolutely the best time we have had. at the top, we had 11 people sharing the house.....without feeling crowded. The views are terrific. Although the house is not large, it "works" perfectly and had every possible kitchen or other necessity.

the only negatives. the house sits on a hill and is not easily accessible to someone who cannot walk up slopes. All the bedrooms and the two bathrooms are on the second floor. here again, someone who has trouble with stairs or walking up hills may have trouble. it was not a problem for our group, but i can see where someone might have a problem.

great beaches and touring in the area, too.l

all in all, it could not have been better. already thinking about next year.
