First let me begin by saying if I could have given 4.75 stars I would have.
I rented the cottage for 4 nights, It was the perfect size for me and my mother who was celebrating her 64th birthday.
The cottage was pristine inside and out - clean, well kept, included every amenity you could possibly need and then some - seriously, its better equipped than most high priced hotels, I forgot dental floss and there it was in the basket on the towel shelf.
The owner, Sandi even provided a welcome basket of goodies and a bottle of wine. Not to mention, there is a lovely garden just outside the living room where you can pick your own fresh vege's =)
Its just a short five minute walk to the uncrowded PI beaches, 10 minute drive to lovely downtown Newburyport and 25 minutes drive to Hampton/Rye Beach.
One teeny tiny small negative...
The only reason I couldn't give it a full 5 stars is that the only AC is a unit in the front bedroom with the bunk beds so the back main bedroom was a bit stuffy , I had a hard time sleeping the first night - I opted to open the sliding door the following night for some fresh air and that helped.
I should also note, there is no cable, not really an issue for me as I don't watch much TV but my mother usually does before bed and she was a bit bummed ...thankfully they offered free WiFi , so I set up the laptop and and hooked mom up with a movie online =)
All things considered we enjoyed our stay, and would certainly return, the price, quality and location were right!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely comments both positive and constructive. We take each and every comment to heart. We already have a new energy efficient split AC / heat system ordered ready for install, once we have an opening in rentals to get it installed. Although we don't advertise cable television we have had several requests to provide this added feature and will hopefully be getting that installed before the season is over for sure. We certainly enjoyed having you and thank you again for choosing our cottage for your visit.
