Right in the zone.....

  • 5 of 5

......of everything peaceful, serene and perfect. This is a little slice of heaven, with endless views outside, hosts who make your stay memorable with little touches of delightful hospitality, and interior charms like a spiral staircase, color-drenched art, eclectic and comfortable furnishings, vintage and modern touches all combined to create an oasis for the senses. This home is close to everything but if you sit and let yourself feel the pull of its magic, you won't want to leave. It's in the angles of each room, the slant of the sunlight, the placement of furniture and abundance of books, cozy corners to curl up in and read, bluetooth music player if you want that, silence if you prefer, the hot tub just outside the door and did I mention those views...add in a superb massage by Suzan, and there is nothing else you could want. Charles and Lisa are the perfect hosts and we can't wait to return!

A great stay.

  • 4 of 5

We could only stay a few days of our week but had a wonderful time. Enjoying the hot tub, sitting on the comfortable deck and beach combing for beach glass. Owners had put goodies in the fridge for our arrival and were very helpful if we had questions.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful spot on the New Hampshire coast!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable house with a unique design. All the amenities one could want. Amazing ocean views. Located right on Route 1A, but without the crowds and heavy traffic. Easy walk to the nearby beach. Many nice restaurants and shopping areas within a short drive.The owner was helpful, amiable and available, but not intrusive. Plenty of space for our 6 adults and 2 dogs. Perfect location to enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the Atlantic ocean meeting the rocky coast! A great family vacation week.

Great place if you have Pets.

  • 4 of 5

To start the supply is a bit limited if you have a 150lb dog and a cat. That being said , of that supply , this certainly must be one of the nicest. Wonderful master suite looking over the Atlantic . And a great sleeping king bed, with as mentioned ,bedding as nice as if we were home. That said the washer and dryer are in the master bath and the dryer vents into the bathroom , very very odd and raised the temp up quite a bit. Ocean blvd is a well traveled road and you are right on it , so road noise is fairly constant. Also, if you do bring your dog , you'll be expected to crate the dog if you leave without the dog. First time I've had that stipulation at a VRBO, so be prepared.All in all a pleasant and comfortable and accomodating stay .

Room(s) with a View

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely stay where we could gaze at the ocean from every room. It didn't matter that the weather didn't really cooperate, as we relaxed and enjoyed the view from inside. Our hosts thought of so many considerate amenities (including for our four legged family member) that this rental was a true delight. Thank you, Charlie and Lisa!
