Guestbook comments from the owner

We had more than enough room to really enjoy ourselves here. Private, yet walking to the beach was a breeze. Great deck with covered cabana and Weber BBQ made being outside a delight!

Best location in York!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, Private Home. Close enough to the beach (short sands) that the kids can safely walk to the arcade, far enough away not to be bothered by tourists.

Lovely home with plenty of surprises. Would welcome the opportunity to visit again!

A beautiful, peaceful family sancutary

  • 5 of 5

We have loved coming to this beautiful home for the past two summers and have already booked a week in 2018. We love that it's a pretty 2-minute, easy walk to Short Sands beach and it's so relaxing to walk back home and enjoy the serenity of the large deck and the lush back yard. Lots to do -- and places to eat -- in the York area for kids and parents. Plenty of nice bedrooms and bathrooms so we're not tripping over each other. Our grandkids call it 'our special summer house' and we can't imagine vacationing anywhere else.

Wonderful week! Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Collette's place in early August this year. We were fortunate to have great weather. I was leery of renting a place online but the place was exactly as described. Immaculate and well maintained. We were a group of 7 and had plenty of space. I would highly recommend renting. Downtown was walking distance.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation home and have reserved it for next year. The house is close to the beach, yet far enough away from the crowds. We enjoyed the beautiful yard and the whimsical gardens. The house is tastefully decorated, very comfortable and well maintained. We enjoyed our dinners on the deck and felt at home. We enjoyed a quiet week yet were able to walk to the beach and to downtown whenever we chose. Everything was just as Mark and Colette promised.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

7 adults and 2 children-we just spent a week at this propery. I would highly recommend it. Plenty of room for everyone. Too long of a walk for 80 year old mother-in-law and 2 little ones, but nice for the rest of us. Very quiet-nice yard.
