Nautical feel w/ great views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was small, cute, very well-maintainted and it had a nautical feel. Everything (except bedding & towels) we could possibly need was there. The beach access was a very short, pleasant walk. The cottage also has a common area deck for B-B-Qs & sunbathing or just relaxing by the water's edge. There was ample private parking nearby, and the cottage is just a quick bike ride to town (excellent location for bike riding!). Restaurants and shopping galore! Lots of traffic tho on the main road. We loved our time there and can't wait to visit again. The owners were very accomodating as well. I've recommended this site to friends.

Great floorplan and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed your cottage this past weekend. The layout was very functional and spacious. Love the two entrances. Communication was great. The directions provided need to be improved, list the cottage number.

Thank you again for the great place

Wonderful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage and wonderful location, very close to great restaurants, shopping, etc but in a very quiet secluded neighborhood and a 3-minute walk to a great beach !! The cottage was spotlessly clean and although the owner was out-of-state while we were there, he welcomed us by phone and was instantly available by phone, email, or texting to answer any questions we had during our stay. Each evening we enjoyed using the deck to have snacks, visit with other renters, enjoy the ocean views, and watch the sunsets. The kitchen was very well equipped, the living and dining areas were very enjoyable, the bed was very comfortable, and the whole unit is very well maintained. The next time we visit "the Cape" we definitely would like to stay here again.

Great cottage right by the beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great; plenty large enough for a week's stay for myself, my wife and our 2 year old. The cottage is right on the beach, a quick walk over a footbridge to Colonial Acres beach on Lewis Bay (perfect beach for a small child as the bay keeps the waves small). The cottage was clean and well equipped; owner Scott was great to work with. Definitely would stay at again.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 3 day stay here. Our biggest regret was not being able to stay longer! The cottage is beautiful and has cool, comfortable ocean breezes. We literally had everything in the kitchen we needed and more! The beach is a short walk away, so I could let my husband sleep in while I had tea on the beach each morning. It was quiet and comfortable, but close to all the tourist attractions we wanted to see. We spent one day in Hyannis, one day on Martha's Vineyard riding mopeds. This cottage has it all and is convenient to everything! Scott, the owner, is very kind and accommodating. Enjoy your stay, we sure did!

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at First Encounter. The cottage was adorable, clean and the location was great for children. The grounds were well kept and inviting.The deck was so relaxing in the evening and the view can not be beat. The owner Scott was so nice, very easy to work with. We will definately return. Overall it was a great vacation.
