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!

Perfect Cape Cod Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent several days in this cottage and just loved it! We didn't do any cooking, so the tiny kitchen was all we needed. The murphy bed was an ideal sleeping space and the small bathroom was equipped with baskets and over-the-toilet shelves, which really maximized the space. We almost had the beach to ourselves (just the way I like it!) and were greeted one morning by a little brown rabbit outside the window! There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the surf!

relaxing sound of the waves . . .

  • 5 of 5

This particular house was perfect for what I needed. I spent the week in Boston on a work trip and chose to spend the weekend decompressing on the Cape. The one thing about the stay that I wasn't happy with was the weather. Can't do much about that! I basically spent the days exploring the area and used this as a home base.

I had good communication with the owner who provided some area options for places to eat and things to do. The house is easy to find and nearby several good restaurants and the main road makes it easy to access anything you'd like to do on the Cape.

A good experience.

Great location, Great price, Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this studio cottage for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It can not be beat for its location on the beach and on a quite street with free off the street parking. We had a relaxing time. Everything was as advertised and as was shown in the photos. I would recommend it for two adults only or maybe two adults with a infant to toddler. I feel three adults would feel cramped. The Murphy bed was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The bathroom was small but nothing was different than what we expected from the description given or photos shown. The price is very reasonable for the Cape Cod area and for being right on the beach. Amazing views, ocean sounds and breezes each day. Very relaxing and clean beach cottage! The owners were very pleasant and easy to communicate with. We would highly recommend this cottage to others and we hope to return again ourselves. For those that had any negative comments, they need to go pay $350-$450 per night at a lush hotel and then pay $24-$45 for parking each night. This small cottage is exactly as stated and shown in photos and it is a fun place to stay. Check it out for yourself!

Incredible Location!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this cottage, 3 nights with my sister, a night alone and 3 nights with my husband. The location is amazing! From reading other reviews as well as the description I expected it to be small and it is (especially the bathroom toilet area). I also agree with a recent review that there is some basic maintenance (paint touch-up, etc) that would have improved the impression this cottage gives and we also found the freezer door had an issue but it DID NOT render the freezer unusable (also re: that review we also found no musty smell and the bed was comfortable; also to say that the cottage was pricy given the 'upkeep' seems crazy because on a cost-per - night basis you would be extremely hard-pressed to find anything this close to the beach for this price! At high tide the coean is probably 60 ft from the cottage!)

We had a very well-rounded vacation - split between whole days on the beach in those wonderful lounge chairs, popping in and out of the cottage for a cold Corona with lime, grilling meat and vegetables, taking the kayaks to the marshes... and day trips to Martha's Vineyard and the towns surrounding Yarmouth. We also walked twice to Skippers (delicious). Even with the slight room for improvement this was probably the most relaxing vacation I've ever had and the location more than makes up for any slight shortcomings... I would have given 10 of 10 stars for that reason.

This cottage has great potential, and our stay was certainly not bad. However, for the amount of money paid during peak season, we believe there could be upgrades to this cottage. The outside door did not close properly and would blow open if not locked, and the lock did not work properly. The freezer was broken upon arrival, with no attempts to repair - so that was unusable. The photos of this place seem as though they're fairly old, so there has been some wear in that time (obviously), and the place is much smaller than the photos present. With this in mind, it was slightly misleading upon arrival.

Where the cottage is located is very convenient. It is decently central and you can get to most places pretty quick, and also get to some restaurants by foot. I think this place is best suited for people (an absolute maximum of 3, but realistically 2) who are going to be out and about most of their trip and use this to sleep and shower. Lastly, this cottage states it is handicap accessible - however nothing about this place is handicap accessible.


All essential parts are present (bed, shower, kitchenette).

The beach is in your backyard.

Decently clean.

Two beach chairs were a wonderful surprise!

Received the deposit promptly.


A lot of money for subpar upkeep.

Broken freezer and malfunctioning door.

Dank smell.

Uncomfortable bed.

Smaller than expected (especially the toilet area and shower).

Owner's Response: William I am happy that you enjoyed the cottage,location and the beach, but surprised by your emphasis on doors putting a damper on your stay. Upon your arrival you texted that you just wanted to Make me aware that the freezer door/handle was broken, but added that all is well. I understood you just didn't want to get blamed for the condition not that it was affecting your use or enjoyment in any way. The freezer door did close and the freezer works. As far as the storm/screen door not staying closed unless locked, that is a product of the ocean breezes. You could close the main door without locking. Many cottages have no storm doors. We didn't receive any complaint from you during your stay or we certainly would've addressed it. The cottage is as described and the yard is a beautiful sandy beach directly on the ocean. The listing said it has 2 beach chairs (not sure why they were a surprise for you) and it did not say it's HP (not sure why you thought it was) I am sorry for any inconvenience or misunderstanding. POST SCRIPT We freshly painted the entire cottage April 2017 and updated furnishings.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family recently spent a week here and it was amazing. Location is awesome right on the ocean and private beach. There is very little traffic and you are still close enough to everything. You can walk to skippers down the road or there are a bunch of other restaraunts on route 28. The cottage was just the right size for me my wife and our 6 year old son. We spent the week on the beach and in the water and we even got an amazing eclipse moonrise over the ocean, unfortunately I didn't think to take a picture. You won't regret a stay at this cottage and Dawn was great and made it super easy. We hope to be back soon.
