The cottage was designed by a noted local architect and our recent renovation makes it a contemporary, stylish gem. Please look at the recent reviews for a sense of how our guests have liked the place. It is optimal for one or two adults, and we have seen a very strong interest in the September and October season when the weather and views can be amazing.

Owners on property in main house on the 3 acre estate. We live here about half of the year. Our son is grown and on his own, so it is very quiet here.
Our family has vacationed and lived in the area for generations, so it was preordained that we would end up somewhere nearby. When we had a chance to buy this place we jumped on it.
We found this property 17 years ago abandoned because of the time and expense it takes to keep an oceanfront property up to date. It took us 15 years to get it right, but now it is a truly first class environment.
