It is a pearl

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this vacation property. From the welcome basket to the tiki torched back yard oasis, my stay was lovely. The house is clean, well appointed, good parking and the owners have focused on anticipating and meeting the renters needs. There is a new front porch to loll on but most special for me were the gardens, fire pit and ambience of the back yard. You can hear the ocean surf and have a cocktail without leaving home.

There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a sleeping area downstairs and on the porch.

Great Cottage Experience close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was stocked with everything we needed. It was very comfortable, clean and our hosts, Mary and Joe, were available to answer any questions we may have had. The walk to the beach was short. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Owners were friendly, however property needs updating and sleeping arrangements could be improved.

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here in July of 2017. Due to travel plans and conflicting schedules, we were not able to personally meet the owners. This was to no fault of the owners as they repeatedly tried to make it happen, but we had a full schedule and were on the road early and stayed out late. Owners were friendly and accommodating to needs such as delivering firewood and firestarter when we requested. Kitchen is very well stocked and has everything needed. Sleeping arrangements are tight and are not real accommodating or comfortable for adults. If it is one couple with small children it would be suitable. Property needs some updating. Bathrooms are small and basement bathroom is extremely cramped and smells damp and musty. If you are over or near 6 feet tall you will be extremely uncomfortable in shower. Significant bugs in the basement. The backyard is very nice and made for a nice space to enjoy evenings. Walk to beach is close which is nice. This rental is comparable to a lake cabin or no frills beach home. Not a real sense of ambiance or "cozy" feeling. If you are looking for a little more upscale but still not fancy, this isn't the best choice. If you want a place to stay with kids may be a good choice. Realize this is an expensive area, but property seems overpriced. The area is beautiful though and Plymouth is a charming town and a good center point for many excursions and day trips, such as Boston, Newport, and Cape Cod towns.

Owner's Response: WOW! This is the first we have heard of your disappointment with our home… 2 ½ months after the visit. Sorry, your expectations were not met. We make every effort to “meet & greet” each of our guests, to welcome them and show them around the property. In the last decade all of our guests have complimented our “Aloha”, hospitality, attention to detail, and level of customer service. As for the damp and musty basement bathroom, we request per house rules that the basement automatic dehumidifier be left on at all times. At the end of your visit, we found that the dehumidifier had been shut off. Being near the beach, it is always damp & humid. As for bugs, we keep our home extremely clean and were never notified of any issues. We are only a phone call away, a five minute drive, and would have been happy to fix any problems. Upon cleaning at the end of your stay, we did not find any bugs. Our site depicts the property exactly as it is, a small 2 bedroom ranch with a family room in the basement that can be used for additional guests. Most of our summer guests enjoy our backyard patio complete with fire pit and bar. If you had preferred a large upscale property, others may have been available at a significantly higher rate. Our rates are on the lower end of similar properties in the area.

Great location for the beach and day trips! Would do it again!

  • 4 of 5

Great location for all that we wanted to do in the area (we visited Boston twice and Cape Cod once)! It's super close to the beach for multiple trips in one day. The house definitely has a cottage feel to it...the rooms aren't huge, but provide enough storage space for your things. As others have posted, the backyard is the best feature. We built a fire 3 of the nights we were there and enjoyed the quiet patio in the mornings. This is the perfect rental for anyone, but especially for families flying into the area that don't have room to pack beach equipment. Mary and Joe provided anything you could need for a trip to the beach, including a wheeled cooler, beach chairs and a wagon. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
