Charming property, great location, well provisioned but home needs a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

We would definitely consider going back again: Loved (1) the close proximity to the beach (huge, huge positive!!! Awesome location--very easy stroll back to the house for lunch, etc. And North Beach in Hampton State Park has amazing sand and waves good for family boogieboarding!!!); (2) the private parking and private road that is Witch Island Way ... not a busy traffic throughway at all; and (3) that the house came very well equipped with bed sheets, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, etc. ... we left all the stuff we usually bring to a rental at home and we're fine.

However, as much as we lived the location, we might rent one of the other houses on Witch Island Way. The biggest challenge we had was the lack of any sort of a/c, which resulted in two sleepless night: one because we arrived during a heat wave and the house didn't get below 85-90 degrees that night and the other because, even without the heat wave, we had to keep the windows open at night to cool the house to a reasonable sleeping temp. (This was a challenge because the 3 families renting/sharing the neighboring house arrived on our last night and were outside talking on their porch with the lights on all night... it wasn't a raucous party, but the lights and noise streamed into 2 of the 3 the bedrooms because we couldn't shut the windows.). The fans available in the house didn't help enough. Simple window units would allow the house to be cooled before bed after a hot day so the windows didn't have to be left open, and every bedroom has ample windows so you could still have the option of opening windows.

Be aware that this is an older house. We guess it was the original house on Witch Island Way (we heard many of the houses in the Witch Island Way condo association are/were owned by people related to each other). If you are a perfectionist / have OCD this house might not be for you. There were lots of little things that could use maintenance: peeling wallpaper, smoke detectors without batteries, some mildew on the wall on the sunroom porch (former exterior wall), pilot light not working for a burner on the stove, sticky fridge door, a few outdoor chairs that wouldn't sit on, etc. For us, these didn't matter -- the house worked well.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Agnew House. The house was very clean and everything you could possibly need was available. It is close to the beach yet is fairly private and is in a nice neighborhood. Amy was prompt in responding to any questions. Great vacation home. We hope to stay there again in the future.

Nice family house

  • 4 of 5

This was a great family house in a great location for beach lovers.

We didn't take advantage of all of the amenities because we were in town for a wedding. A couple of families could easily share the house. Use the backyard for lawn games and walk less than a block to the beach, and only a little way to some shops and restaurants.

The only very small thing, and I know Amy will do this, is to post the Wifi instructions prominently, along with better information in the house regarding things like recycling, and the exit plan.

Best vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

Agnew House is even more special in person. The owner was wonderful ! The home is very spaciouse and clean. Our family of 7, four who are under 12yrs, all had a wonderful time, cooking out, sparklers in the back yard. Easiest walk to the water! Having a washer and dryer was wonderful!! The kids loved using the outside shower too. Very comfortable, like visiting family... everything you might need is there! I would recommend this spot for your vacation, have fun!

Hampton North beach, 2 blocks
Car: recommended

Our house is a block from North Beach in Hampton, a large sandy beach, with rocky areas for beachcombing, a large tide change and cold refreshing ocean water. North Beach is largely residential but we are just 2 miles north of the activities and businesses at Hampton Beach. We are a unique property close to the beach yet set back from the street on a one way private road. There is back yard for out door sports. The house has limited ocean views in the front but also overlooks the great salt pond in the rear with beautiful sunsets.

The home is close to New Hampshire tax free shopping and Kittery outlet stores. We are also within a half hour of quaint Newburyport Mass and Portsmouth NH. 45 minutes North of Boston.
