Charming, rustic

  • 5 of 5

This home is charming and inviting, and the location is ideal. In all our dealings with him, the owner was extremely courteous, helpful and prompt. The 2nd half of our week was chilly, but we were never short of hot water for delightful morning showers. Our purpose was to relax and enjoy the sound and sights of the beach and surf, which we thoroughly did. We love the front porch! Nature even provided a "super moon" during our stay. In late September there were enough people around so we that we didn't feel isolated and few enough for privacy and quiet. We enjoyed our daily outings for dining, entertainment and shopping, all within a short driving distance.

I would recommend this cottage and give it 5 stars.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming house and right on the water! You can't get any closer--we felt like we were on a boat while on the back deck or looking out the windows. The upstairs back bedroom is my favorite, but you can hear the ocean from any room. We had great weather and with two 14 year olds we could watch them from the back deck if we didn't feel like sitting on the beach. We loved kayaking and walks on the beach to Lenny's for dinner, the shops, ice cream, and arcade. We even went to the Goodspeed Opera House for a musical one night! Fantastic location that was enjoyed by all.

We Had the Best Vacation!

This house is really charming with 4 bedrooms right on the water! Best of all is a fabulous deck overlooking the ocean, what's better than that! Our kids had a blast making summer friends and enjoying the sand and surf everyday. We plan to make this a family tradition as most people there already do. We highly, highly recommend. Hawks Nest Beach. The owner is great and so easy to deal with! Jean Danbury Ct
