Great Stay! Awesome value for the price!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental. The price is perfect for what you get! Perfect location...close enough to walk up to the store or Forbes or Arcade but far enough down the beach that even at high tide there is beach. You are right across from a public way and there are ocean views from several locations in the house as well as on front deck. There are also some marsh views and you can easily make the walk down to the jetty end of the beach. I like that Gary's price includes taxes and cleaning, etc. No extra hidden fees!!!

The house is well laid out and easily accommodated 6 of us. We had a few visitors here and there and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was clean and bright. The attic bedroom with on suite half bath gave my husband and I some privacy which was nice. The Gaffin's welcomed us and made us feel at home. I loved that it came with some paper goods, soaps, etc. We were travelling in from TX so the less stuff we had to bring...the better! Wifi kept my kids happy when we weren't at the beach or busy!

I give it 5 stars and will definitely recommend this place for friends and family. There are a few small recommendations we would make...would love a larger TV in the downstairs space. A few window or box fans stored in a closet would be got a bit stuffy a few times down on the first floor and finally...because we flew in from TX we weren't able to bring a grill or small hibachi with us. Would love for the outdoor patio to be a bit more useable and to at least have a charcoal kettle grill available for use.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience. This is our second time staying here and we bring our entire family. Our grand kids love the house and the very short walk to the beach. The owners treat you like a member of their family. We already booked our week for next year.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Great Beach House rental.. Plenty of windows that bring in all the sunshine and wonderful ocean breezes. So close to beach, as shown in the picture..just across the street. Also close to restaurants, lobster pound, grocery store and pharmacies all within two miles at most! And the Scoop Deck! Best ice cream ever ! House with 2 1/2 bathrooms, three bedrooms and a lovely sun filled living space with pull out futon makes this house ideal for summer living fun. Nice sitting area on front deck for drinks and watching the sunset. Large dining room table can sit 8 very comfortably for meals or playing cards/games . Kitchen is also very well equipped with all necessities. Have stayed here for five consecutive years....but family is growing and we need more space. Hated to relinquish our week to this beautiful beachside home. Do NOT hesitate to rent this lovely comfortable house.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week. The house was clean and bright with lots of windows for optimum sunlight and fresh air. The short walk across the street to the beach was great for little ones as well as the adults. THe center of town was a decent walk, but you can either walk it by beach or road and it goes by quickly. The kids favorite walk was to the candy store:) Having the grocery store so close is something else that was a plus.

Of course the weather we had that week was just beautiful so that certainly helped to add to the fun we had.
