Guestbook comments from the owner

This little cottage was the best 20th anniversary getaway! It's cozy and romantic. The view is amazing and the private deck was the perfect spot for evening cocktails. The location provides a spectacular view of the morning sunrise, too. The cottage looked just like the pictures and was clean and welcoming. We were able to walk to dinner at The Skipper which was delicious and convenient.

Couldn't have asked for a better spot to escape. Looking forward to doing it again next year!

Somewhere Only We Know - Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This cottage direct onto Nantucket Sound is everything we could have wished for and more! The photos on the site do not do justice this to this 'perfect for two' cottage. It is at the end of a cul-de-sac with very little passing car traffic and with the private beach, you can interrupted views of the sand and sea. Inside the cottage has everything you need: wifi, cooker, fridge and freezer and outside the BBQ and deck provide perfect setting for evening relaxing. The kayaks are ideal given that the marshes are only a few minutes kayaking away! Dawn and Steve have been brilliant and made everything easy for us. Thank you! We didn't want to leave and certainly will be back, whether it be to this cottage or their larger house next door. Perfect in every way!

Awesome cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This property is incredibly cute and RIGHT on the water. It is small but perfect for a couple - the Murphy bed was extremely comfortable. It was equipped with all the necessary accoutrements that you would need - a tea pot, coffee maker, silverware, pot and pans, etc. We LOVED the privacy of the beach and enjoyed the kayaks very much. It was truly a memorable vacation and I would highly recommend working with this owner - she was very responsive and returned my security deposit within a week of returning. My husband and I will definitely be returning!

We had a wonderful 3 nights at this cottage. Location was great! Cottage is right on beach and steps from water.

Everything we needed was there and it is also within close proximity to restaurants and shopping. Rental process was easy, Dawn was quick to respond to any questions. We look forward to visiting again! Thank you, Gene and Dianne

All I Expected and More!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this cottage on Nantucket Sound was absolutely perfect. When I arrived I was so happy that it was just like pictured and so clean. Dawn, the owner, was easy to do business with when making my reservation and continued to be available during my stay.

This is a charming place to spend time; the sand and ocean right outside your door and all the sites and sounds of the sea! The cottage was well equipped with everything I needed to make my stay comfortable.

I received my security back within days, just as stated on the Agreement. All in all, my stay was all I expected and more.

I can't wait to go back!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed in the studio apartment for a weeks vacation. There's nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The studio had everything we needed (ideal for a couple getaway). You are literally right on the beach. We were lucky enough to be there during a meteor shower which was so awesome to watch just steps from where we were sleeping. Great local restaurants and prime location on the cape! Dawn was easy to access and more than willing to answer any questions we had. We will deffinitly be back!! Ps go to skippers restaurant down the road... You could even walk!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed for a week. The description of the cottage was accurate - it was very neat and clean. I would not suggest anymore than two people, other than a small child. It was so relaxing and you could hear the waves ALL the time! It was in a very central location, especially close to Hyannis, and very close to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. We ate at The Skipper (twice) which is right around the corner - the food/service was very good. I would definitely stay here again next year - hoping for two weeks!
