CHARMING OCEANFRONT BEACH COTTAGE

Hampton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 short-stay guest/storage/laundry room. Best for 2 people

This little cottage is directly on the ocean at prestigious Plaice Cove and North Beach. It has been updated for comfort and convenience, but the ambiance created over the past sixty years, and five generations, has not been changed. The presence of the ocean is everywhere. Hear the sound of the waves, taste the salt spray, see the sun and the full moon as they crawl out of the ocean and be at peace. Walk from the deck onto the beach and, sometimes, be the only one on the beach. Comfortable and cozy but very 'workable'. The fully equipped kitchen will please the best of cooks (on a small scale), and the deck will serve a group of day-visitors. This little house is 'getting away' without really being very far away from anything. This is one of those places where, once you are there, you never want to leave.

Winter Rentals: Many have expressed interest in winter rental. The Little House is not winterized and is closed from mid October until late April. Only the main room has a bit of heat, and the water has to be shut off for the winter.

The Little House was built by my grandfather in 1946, and five generations have enjoyed the property. He built the 'Big House', to the South, in 1905. We have worked very hard to keep the ambiance of the cottage as we have updated the interior and exterior.

Susan Koster purchased this cottage in 1946

My grandfather chose the property after driving from Seabrook to Wallis Sands at the turn of the century. New Hampshire has just a 32 mile seacoast, so this property is truly unique.

The unique location at Plaice Cove is a huge benefit. There is a small beach right in front of the house so that children can be monitored from the deck. There are wonderful tidal pools in which they can play.

BEST "LITTLE HOUSE" EVER!

Best "Little House" ever!
  • 5 of 5
I'll admit when we booked the "little house" it sounded too good to be true. When we arrived and first took in the amazing view from the deck we were overjoyed to have found such a special place. The house is so unique and very clean. The proximity to the ocean brings an intimacy that is impossible to beat. We made good use of the kitchen and the grill. Why eat out when you have ocean front seating every evening. Our 1 year old enjoyed playing in the sand and the short walk to the patch made it possible to schedule beach time around his naps. We cant wait to come back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you, once again, for your kind words. We had fun reading your daily emails about what pleased you....especially as we are "foodies" too! Glad you liked the "Gourmet Dining Room" (the deck bench) ! The house truly is perfect for all ages.

"THE LITTLE HOUSE"

"The Little House"
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this wonderful "little house" for just a week but that was all it took to fall in love with it. The location is absolutely perfect and the short 18 mile coastline of NH is one of the most beautiful in the country. We experienced the most magnificent sunrises and sunsets. The "little house" accommodated all our needs and the rustic nature of the cottage provided optimum ambience. Anything you might need is within close proximity -- wonderful restaurants, grocery stores, shopping. There is much to see and do or do nothing but savor the sound of the surf and feast your eyes on the ever-changing sky and color of the sea. As I wrote in the guest book, there may be grander homes but none could compare with the welcome you will receive when you vacation at the "little house" in Hampton, NH.

BEST BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Charming is the best description for this little gem. No need to leave unless you want to walk a few steps to get down on beach. Just sit on deck and watch the waves, birds, paddle boarders, surfers and the world. House was clean, well maintained and had the feeling of love, family and warmth. Perfect cozy spot for couple or small family. Everything was clean and in working order. Communication with owner was excellent and timely. We would return again and again and highly recommend except during our weeks!

Car: recommended

Direct ocean-front cottage just far enough away to miss the hustle and bustle of Hampton Beach, but not so far to miss its activities. It's a twenty minute drive to Historic Portsmouth or Kittery's Outlet Malls to the North and quaint Newburyport to the South. One hour ride to the airport, either Boston or Manchester. Beware, this addictive location makes you want to go nowhere! From the living room you can watch the sun or the full moon crawl out of the ocean. Walk out the door, over the rocks, and down onto the beach...into the water at high tide.

Other Activities: Paddle Boards can be rented
