Nice Cottage in a real nice neighborhood
Very nice landlords, helpful and offering any help we might need. Good kitchen set up. Nice "beachy" feel. Could use a new mattress, a mirror over the bathroom sink for the men who shave, some grab bars by the tub and smoke detectors. There is only one small dresser in the BR. We were there 10 nights and needed more drawer space. Beautiful area with lots of restaurants. Landlords brought over a Boce set for the grandchildren! With these few changes we feel anyone would enjoy this cottage for their getaway!!
Thank you for your review.
We are a little surprised by only getting 2 stars. That usually means that there is something terribly wrong. Based on your written review, I don't see why only 2 stars were awarded.
Addressing your concerns:
The cottage is only 650 sq. feet. It is fitted & decorated in a way to make it quaint, clutter free and easy to move around. If we tried to fit another dresser in the bedroom, there would be no room to move around the bed.
The mattress is brand new, this year. Please let us know what was wrong with the mattress, we may be able to get it exchanged if it is defective in some way. Other renters thought both the new bed & sofa mattresses were very comfortable.
There are two smoke/Co2 detectors in the cottage. One is in the utility room with the furnace & the other outside the bedroom door. Batteries are replaced and the units tested, every 6 months. They have been in place/service since the remodeling of the cottage last year.
There is a mirror in the bathroom but not over the sink. I know this is a little inconvenient. Unfortunately the window goes over ½ the sink, which makes it difficult to put a mirror directly "over the sink". There is a small mirror with medicine cabinet to the right of the sink on the wall. It is in one of the pictures.
We take constructive criticism very seriously and strive to make the cottage comfortable. Unfortunately everyone has different tastes, thoughts, likes and dislikes, so it is impossible to please everyone, but we try.
Cute cottage; very clean; great location
The owners were very helpful-met us on arrival and was just a text away. The cottage was decorated in a beach theme—had all the necessary amenities. The location was very convenient for day trips. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors that we saw were very friendly. Would highly recommend The Osprey.
Great cottage, great location.
We spent a week there this summer. Cottage is clean and fresh. Great views of the cove. Lots of room for a one bedroom cottage. Owners are cheerful and quite available.
Sunny, peaceful, convenient, with great Hosts!
I had a lovely stay, at The Osprey! The cottage is nicely renovated, clean, and well equipped. The Queen size bed is very comfortable. The Osprey is located on a quiet side street, with a large front lawn, yet convenient to everything. There is a beautiful view of the water, literally steps away. The Owners were available, and very personable.
Perfect getaway !
What a precious cottage with all that we could have wanted. It was such a great location, views of the cove with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owners were very warm and welcoming ! I would definitely like to visit again !!!
