Fairhaven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, pull-out sofa bed (Sleeps 4-6)

WELCOME TO THE DISTINCTIVE COTTAGE COLLECTION ON WEST ISLAND AND SCONTICUT NECK PRESENTED BY HOWE ALLEN REALTY.

You are viewing Arbor Hideaway. Situated on West Island, truly one of the best-kept secrets in Massachusetts, this delightful island cottage offers comfortable living, accessibility to 5 beaches (on foot), large yard for garden parties, internet connectivity and all the conveniences of a fully-equipped home. The peaceful setting is just steps from 5 lovely beaches, a nature reserve and a marina. The island itself is predominantly residential, but within 4 miles drive there are large food stores, big box stores, restaurants and so much more. The island is accessed by one road so there isn't a need for ferry or launch.

The home has two bedrooms with comfortable mattresses and high-quality linens. The full kitchen is more than adequate for cooking large meals. There is cable/satellite television, high-speed wifi internet, a washer and dryer as well as outdoor seating and a BBQ. The decor is tasteful and the home is in excellent condition.

Great little house

  • 5 of 5
We thought the place was great. A little smaller than the pictures made it seem, but it was great for the two of us and two young kids. The house had just about everything we needed to cook large meals, great backyard, and was very clean. I would recommend a/c in the second bedroom as it did get warm in the afternoon. I would also recommend a sofa instead of a love seat and maybe some chairs on the porch in addition to the table. The wifi worked great and the upgraded cable TV was appreciated to distract the kids after full beach days.

Little Hideaway

  • 4 of 5
We, a family of three adults, spent seven very relaxed days at West Island.
We enjoyed the privacy and quietness of that location as well
as the tastefully and lovely decorated little cottage.
After a day at the nearby beach - not crowded during our stay -
the BBQ (attention mosquitos) and the well equipped kitchen were perfect for fixing dinner.
We found everthing very clean and well maintained except for the windows and
screens in the second bedroom. Unfortunately it was impossible creating a pleasant
draft by opening the malfunctioning windows.
What has to be mentioned is that we were very satisfied with the procedure of renting this beautiful property. It was very easy, not complicated at all. Thank you very much!

Quiet hidaway

  • 4 of 5
The house was comfortable and quiet so very restful. Everything in the description was there, in good working order and it was very clean except for a few too many spiders. If we were people who would vacation in the same place more than once then we would go there again. Walking to most beaches carrying anything is a long walk except if you like a little beach along the causeway. Could have used a map that had the location of the 5 beaches. Don't know where there were 5 of them. The largest, nicest beach is a long walk and charges a fee before 3:00pm and that fee is higher for non-residents of Fairhaven. The mosquitoes posed a challenge as there were a couple small beaches in the Reserve but there were just too many mosquitos even during the day with repellents to make that trip often. They were voracious even on shady lanes. Anywhere by the ocean though, no mosquitoes. Loved Jake's Diner for breakfast on Alden Ave. and the Pasta Grille practically next door to the diner for dinner. Being from NJ Ninety Nine is a treat and Mike's on Huttleston (Rt 6) is very good too. Fairhaven Center and the fort are worth visiting.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a restful time. We do keep a map of the island hanging just next to the front door. Mosquitos have been quite bad this year and the town is spraying regularly, but a heavy dose of bug spray is often called for as well. Normally the bugs are not that evil.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our vacation. Every year me and some friends from NYC rent a house on West Island for a week. We love the relaxed pace and really enjoy being somewhat secluded in the woods but yet only a few blocks from the beach. This is our second time renting from this owner and all I can say is WOW. He really delivers and makes all his property's so comfortable and accommodating. The deck is amazing and overlooks a beautiful backyard with tons of room to run around and play. We tossed a frisbee around for hours. The grill is huge and the kitchen amazing for cooking delicious local fair feasts. The shower is huge with a waterfall shower head to get all the sand off after a day at the beach. The master bedroom has sliding glass doors to the deck and the second bedroom is surrounded by windows. We loved it. There is also a washer and dryer!! Yes!!!! We were more than satisfied and look forward to coming back next year.

When we arrived, the interior was not exactly like the pictures. In most cases better. Office?

  • 5 of 5
The property was immaculate and easy to maintain during our stay. The rooms were good size, well appointed and very comfortable. If anything was needed, it was taken care of immediately and courteously! The area ammeties were good for foodshopping, gas, salons, and small unique stores. Of course, the Island beaches were fantastic. New Bedford has Cork Restaurant which can't be missed; Bedford Merchants is fun and unique; and the Galleries are terrific. Flagship Cinemas is available at great selection and matinee prices. We also found Dartmouth great for retail/mall shopping. I highly, so highly recommend this property and it's owner/manager.
