Reviewer Comments:
The location of this house is wonderful. It is a short walk (3 min) to the beach on a quiet street. You can see the ocean from the house, it is literally one row of houses and a street away from the beach. At night with the windows open you can hear the waves.
The downstairs sitting area could use updated furniture, it is a dark room. The breezeway overlooks the ocean and is a wonderful place to hang out. The kitchen was adequate to cook in, it is basic but clean and we cooked dinner most nights we were there. THe upstairs is wonderful. The bedrooms are charming with nice linens and feel very fresh and clean. My family loved the feel of the upstairs rooms. THey were light and airy and 3 of the 5 bedrooms face the ocean. The photos on the website do not do them justice. I was impressed with all of the nice towels that were provided. The laundry is in a dark basement but once you make your way around and light the rooms it is really just fine. This is a wonderful family home and we appreciated the little framed photos and information about the house history. The outdoor shower was adequate, there is a sloped floor that at first made me think someone would fall but nobody did! I love the area this house is in. There was a little issue with all of the cars that were parked across the street from the stone house on the corner of the street. They parked all the way up and down the street and made getting in and out with our car a bit tricky at times. We decided to let it go and didn't say anything to the neighbor. The neighborhood is quiet at night and felt very safe. The kids walked around on their own during the day (teenagers) and I was not the least bit concerned. You can walk to get ice cream and check out Long Beach which is a short walk away as well. Overall a beautiful location and a very family friendly house for families with children. (interior stairs are steep so little ones would need to be watched)

Reviewer Comments:
Two families from NJ had a marvelous New England vacation at Somersette! The location was perfect; only a 5 minute walk to our favorite beach, Good Harbor. We were very impressed with how well equipped the kitchen is, and we loved all the beach towels. The tote bags were a nice touch too. Thank you and we hope to be back next year!

Reviewer Comments:
We loved Somersette for its shambling, throwback atmosphere and convenience to Good Harbor Beach. Great wrap-around porch; high enough elevation to catch breezes off Brier Neck; themed second-floor bedrooms of B&B quality that thrilled our extended-family guests. Only quibbles: It would have been nice to have a laundry basket, as the washer and dryer are in the basement and more than a few steps apart from each other. More seriously, the rental description claims "Cable," but it wasn't more than local over-the-air stations plus a few more random ones. We didn't expect HBO and Showtime. But no ESPN, no CNN, none of the standard cable staples, was a big disappointment. This should be fixed either by adding stations or having the listing be explicit about the thin offerings. Good thing that, except for one evening, nothing qualified as "Must-See TV," as we spent most of our time enjoying the beach and nearby attractions.

I love AHC, but this property was not up to its usual standards in terms of the shape of the house. It was rundown rather than rustic.
