We booked our trip with the intent of it being the home base for our immediate family while we were visiting our family in New Bedford. Well it not only became the home base for us but our extended family who wanted to spend time with us too because of the location. This cottage is impeccably decorated. When you think of a beach house this is the perfect depiction of it. The house was incredibly clean and had all the linens you would need as well as a coffee maker and grill. It is probably best suited for a couple or a couple and a small child as it is small. The house next door is pretty run down (currently being worked on) but unless you are walking to the beach you don't see it. The beach is a little muddier than we would have liked but our kids had so much fun swimming to the little island with us and looking for crabs. They are still talking about this trip. It was the perfect size and the perfect location for us. The only think I would change is not letting everyone know we were in town so we could enjoy the peace and quiet. All in all it was the perfect spot for our family.
