Good getaway from the normal vacation...
Secluded little one room house in a quiet neighborhood. Owner's graciously accommodated our late, late arrival. We wanted a vacation away from it all, including other vacationers and this was the place. General area has diverse little beaches good for surfing, sunning, swimming and a few nearby shops/restaurants.
House has a great Caribbean feel, large deck with hammocks, large tile shower, out building with washer and outdoor shower, can walk down a beachfront path to Dome's Beach, Rincon lighthouse, and Maria's beach.
Neighboring houses are pretty close, Private path to beach is the property owner's STEEP driveway. Car tires squeal coming up the steep incline and using it as a path to the beach makes you feel like you're intruding a bit (especially at sunrise with all of the owner's dogs barking), house hadn't been cleaned in a while - had to go shopping for cleaning supplies and spent hours on it before we felt comfortable. Can't easily access the beaches north of the house because of a privacy fence along owner's property.
IF the house was cleaned prior to our arrival and the access to the beach didn't involve walking through the property owner's yard, I would give this place an EXCELLENT. Hopefully they'll take care of these items for future vacationers.
Owner's Response: I'm really sorry that we weren't notified that the cottage wasn't up to their standard of cleanliness. We would have sent housecleaning in and made sure it was done properly. No one should spend their precious hours of vacation cleaning.
As you can see by the calendar the cottage is booked consistently and it is regularly cleaned between guest.
The cottage is the last house on the road and has no neighbors on two sides. One house is across the road and the other is more than 30 ft away.
The access to the beach is first down the drive that turns into a path. It passes along the border of one acre of property.
Once there you will find a private yoga deck and a set of stairs that take you to the beach.
On the beach you can walk to the north or south. While on the trail you can only walk south towards the lighthouse as our neighbors have a chain link fence blocking their property.
It is never an intrusion when our guest make their way to the beach past our house which sits 50 ft from the path. I'm so sorry they felt that way.
My husband and I have a few small friendly rescue dogs that do alert us to visitors.
Most of our guest wave hello on their way past or stop to borrow beach toys or paddle boards.
We want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy their stay.
Dennis & Carol
