A true slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We have come back here for a few years in a row now and there really is no other way for me to describe it...the place is amazing. A quaint home with an absolutely fantastic location right on a sandy beach in a protected cove. Nothing like waking up and enjoying a cup of coffee out on an Adirondack chair, warming up in the morning sun with soft green grass between your toes and just listening to the waves lap gently on the beach while a lobster boat slowly makes it way past. Having the beach literally right out front is fantastic and makes it super easy to not only keep an eye on the kids, but makes for quality time with the whole family, because you never have to leave. You can literally spend all day floating, swimming, snorkeling, tanning, kayaking, etc, and then run in and get a drink if you want. AND, if you do need to run inside, there is an outside shower to rinse off all of the salt and sand before you go back in. (I actually love that shower found myself showering out there all week when we were there on our last visit.) On days we ever felt like exploring or a change of scenery, there are some more fantastic beaches on the other side of the island, and that giant tide pool that forms at low tide... That is a must do! We caught all sorts of stuff there with the kids. Starfish, little lobsters, crabs, you name it. Truthfully, I don't know who enjoyed it more, me or them. There is fishing off the dock, you see kids and the more brave jumping in the water from the dock, and excellent fishing along the rocks on the E side ledges just a stones throw from the house. The island is also a town in and of itself, so there is a post office, store, gas station, etc. If you ever run out of anything, you can resupply without having to leave. We had some rainy weather on one of our stays and the kids even did pottery lessons with one of the local artisans. This quaint cottage on the beach is so magical that even our 15 year old girl keeps asking when we can go back!!! I could keep rambling on about the wonders of this place. The sand dollars and eagles, all the coziness of the home and all of the wonderful memories that my family and I have.

My whole family has truthfully fallen in love with this little slice of the world. It has become a part of our lives and we look forward getting back as soon as we can. I hope that you can set aside some time for yourself and yours to relax and enjoy this little slice of heaven!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
It is very peaceful and the views are spectacular. The owner was very clear and helpful in his information about the house and the island. My wife and I have done a lot of traveling and this is the best most scenic spot we have visited. The house is equipped with everything we needed for a great stay. The house was very clean, modern, and very well-maintained.

Perfect Place for our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house last summer. We have 2 young boys ages 8 and 4. This was the perfect spot for us. The boys loved the private beach where they would go exploring along the rocks, collecting hermit crabs and building sand castles. We liked the beach because it was in a protected cove with small waves so we didn’t need to be right on top of the kids to watch them. We just sat back on our beach chairs and enjoyed the view.
There are plenty of things to do on the Island though once you get there we felt like just enjoying the view at the house. Very relaxing. It was a great break from reality and a little bit of a step back in time.
The house was very kid friendly and had all the things we needed. The kitchen was clean and stocked with cooking items. The rental was very turn-key and exceeded our expectations. My boys keep talking about the trip and this house and keep asking when they can go back.

Perfect Place for our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house last summer. I have 2 young boys ages 8 and 4. This was the perfect spot for them. There were so many tings for them to do. They loved the private beach where they picked crabs and explored the rocks. We liked the beach because it was in a cove that was very safe with only small waves. This gave us peace of mind as we let them play on their own as we watched from the sand and enjoyed some one on one time. And the sand was so soft we didn't need to worry about the kids getting cuts on their feet.
We also enjoyed exploring the Island. There are quite a few things to do although you really just want to relax and enjoy the beach and view once you get settled. We needed a real break and we got one here.
The house was very clean and exceeded our expectations including all the extras we have at our own home. The kids keep talking about that week. We made some special memories and hope to go back again real soon! Next time we may even try some lobster, our only regret.
