Guestbook: Onset Island is an absolute dream vacation for people looking to get away from the stress of the modern world. The island is pristine, safe, and charming. No cars, no loud noise, no bright street lights-only stars in the sky and the warm ocean breeze. Onset Islanders are a warm bunch who really take pride in the heritage of their private island. The cottage itself is very clean, decorated well, and has a great ocean view! The area around the cottage is landscaped well, and there is even a nice swing to relax on!

I have been back for less than a week and I am ready to make plans for a return visit!

If you like Cape Cod, but would maybe like to try something different, away from the tourist traps and the traffic, then I highly recommend trying out Periwinkle on Onset Island. Don't let the reasonable rental rate make you think twice, this cottage and island are just wonderful.

A+++! Meredith miller, Massachusetts

Guestbook: The Periwinkle is a lovely cottage, and time spent on Onset Island is certainly a unique experience! It's only a 2 minute boatride from the mainland, but once you arrive it's a world away. The Periwinkle is sunny and casual and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Getting on and off the island is no big deal in the boat provided. All ages visit the island, I saw babies as well as elderly being helped into boats. Kids love the beach, fishing, the play park and sense of freedom you get on the island. We pryed ourselves 'off-island' a few times to have dinner at the Harbour Watch Inn in town and catch movie night at the band shell. We plan to return to OI and the Periwinkle and leave the car, the problems and the world behind if only for a little while.

Guestbook: I loved being on Onset Island. The cottage is great - just enough comforts but not too many. The outdoor shower was wonderful. The toys, rafts, chairs and general supplies were plenty. I loved the simplicity of the island - no cars, or noise, great sunrises and sunsets, beautiful skies at night with even a shooting star or two, great sky during a beautiful thunder, lighting and rain storm, views of water unlimited and plenty of down time. A great getaway! Thanks,

Linda Downey, Bridgeport, Ct

Wonderful Island Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 21, 2008

July 2008 -- The Periwinkle on Onset Island is absolutely the BEST! In less than an hour's drive from our home in Providence, avoiding all the Cape bridge traffic, and burning less than a quarter of a tank of gas, we were on the island and in another world!

The island is pristine, quiet and friendly with a wonderful breeze off the water so even the hottest day is comfortable and cool. The cottage is perfect - comfy furnishings, great video/book library, well-stocked with beach toys, chairs, and cookware...but what is really special is the island location and the cottage's big windows with great views, WONDERFUL outdoor shower, and the very few steps from cottage door to the water's edge for a swim.

We brought our own outboard motor and used the cottage's skiff to explore nearby inlets and beaches. For those not used to rowing/motoring a small boat, from wharf to island is just a two minute straight shot and simple as can be.

While visiting, I read four books, got a great tan, swam to my hearts content, collected a bucket of shells, and came home completely relaxed. Thank you Carrie and Gerrie for sharing your slice of paradise!

Idyllic beach house, perfect for relaxing.

We had a lovely stay at the Periwinkle on Onset Island. Carol and Jerry made sure that we were welcomed and were keen to make sure we found everything we needed at the house. We were really impressed by the range of equipment at the house that made our stay so much more comfortable, especially the beach equipment that we were able to make good use of! This place is perfect for relaxing, the views are wonderful and the fact that there is no traffic on the island means it is probably the most peaceful place we have ever stayed. Our two year old loved the added excitement of trips on the little boat to go to and from the mainland, everywhere on the Island was very safe for children and a great place for them to be.
Owner's Response: The island is a special place and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will visit the periwinkle again on your next visit from the UK.

A Week in Paradise!

The Island was just as I remembered it. There are very few places in the US like this. Small, private and friendly. I place where everyone says hi and you don't have to lock your doors. I spent a summer there as a teen. We love the laid back lifestyle, the views, the amazing cottage and I couldn't stay out of the water. The only thing we'd do different is stay for 2 weeks instead of 1!

We rented the optional outboard as my girlfriend had never seen the cape and we made frequent crossings. The internet is great for checking email but it's a tad slow and turns off at night. Which was find with me, it gave me an excuse to work less.

When we return to the beaches of Massachusetts, this is where we'll stay!
Owner's Response: Thanks Eddie, for your recent stay on Onset Island and your review. We hope you will choose the periwinkle again for your next East Coast visit.
Best regards,
Carol and Jerry

Backyard Bahamas!

It's like going to a remote Bahama island but right in your New England backyard. Slow down, simplify, and go with the flow. Fishing, swimming, sunning, clamming, kayaking or just sittin on the dock of the bay watchin the tides roll away.....my thoughts wander back to this slice of heaven on earth almost daily.
My husband has been coming here with his boys and this was my first visit- I won't be staying home anymore! The house is very clean and leaves you wanting for nothing. Your hosts, Gerry and Carol, allow you to feel like you own the place- there to provide for your needs but space to enjoy all that is around you. I can't wait to return:-)

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind and thoughtful review. It seems you have captured the essence and uniqueness of Onset Island. You are welcome back anytime to enjoy all OI has to offer.
Many thanks!

The magical island.

We spent an amazing week at Periwinkle Cottage. The cottage itself is very pretty and practical with lovely views. The owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Onset Island is a very special place and we had the added bonus of being able to watch, at close quarters, two osprey nests complete with chicks - a real delight. Rowing to and fro was fun and Onset town has a lovely peaceful, easy feel about it. I would recommend this holiday to anyone looking for for something special and unique.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jayne for the very nice review. We hope you will consider another stay at the periwinkle on Onset Island next time you are in the States.
