Looks like a Yard Sale in Progress!
The owner would like you to think of this unit as "cottagelike" and "quaint". It was dirty and smelled from being shut up all winter. There is NO kitchen. A hot plate and microwave for "cooking". There is no table to sit and eat. The "kitchen sink" is two steps up in a closet. The "living area" is five large steps down into a severely cluttered room. The bathroom can only be accessed by going outside and entering from the outside porch. The room was dirty and mice left their droppings in the kitchen area.
The location is good and the space could be made acceptable, but only by starting over and throwing out half the furnishings. The evidence of water hoses that protrude from the wall and run thru the room to the outdoor bath and tile on the walls make you think the single room this once a bathroom. We loved the Boardwalk and the Memorial Pier. Rockland was fun and had lots of nice restaurants. Liked Café Miranda best! The South End is a great location, but this place needs to be totally redone and come back CLEAN, without all the junk the owner found in a Yard Sale!

Owner's Response: I want to respond to my first negative review. I take great pride and joy in pleasing my guests. The folks who submitted this called me on short notice and asked to rent for 5 days. They paid cash and only one signed my contract as they were in a hurry. I had no complaints when they checked in. My unit was clean as I did it myself. The house was closed down this winter due to the high cost of oil and I am in florida. First time in 41 years. I may have overlooked a mouse dropping. I apologize!!!! Gull Cottage is done like a beach house with a kitchen/laundry room and a bedroom/living room combo with direct tv and wireless Internet. The bathroom is just a short step out of the slider into a heated bath with shower. The patio is private with a large stainless grill with side burner, lobster cooker, and wood burning chimbrio to sit out under the large maple tree!! I have enjoyed many guests, one who got married here then returned for their honeymoon! Also this year I have guests returning for their 4th season!!! As far as the statement re yard sale, I have no idea about their comment. My place is clean, cozy and done with wonderful marble top antique dresser and matching commode. Also antique queen brass bed and white wicker. Also boasts a water cooler and washer and dryer. Hopes this helps clarify.
