About John Wilson

Just 'living the dream' and sharing this wonderful location with great people

John Wilson purchased this cottage in 1982

Why John Wilson chose Centerville

Beautiful Beach with River access to Ocean-- a rare combination for beaching and boating!

What makes this cottage unique

Warm salt water sandy beach (not rocky)--mild waves--life guards--shark free for great beach and water fun! Walking home is closer than walking to the bath house...and beach access is FREE!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house has a great location that gives you enough privacy but speedy access to the beach. Having a small family with a 1 year old, I found it safe, clean And stocked with everything we would need outside of food. This also included beach blankets, umbrella, chairs and balls. Another big perk was having the ability to do laundry at the house since cloths tend to pile up with the little guy.

The backyard offers some amazing unadvertised river views that you can see from the mosquito free deck or dock. In addition , you have the option of using a row boat on rotating days for a little adventure.

The owner was quick to respond and very supportive.

We had a great stay and are already starting to plan for next year!

A little slice of heaven in a private setting...

  • 5 of 5

The Salt Water Cottage has all you need for a relaxing vacation. Steps from beach yet set back with spectacular views off back porch. Very quiet and serene setting - the cottage is comfortable with large bedroom and a fully equipped kitchen. Beautifully decorated! Many thanks for sharing such a special place. We will be back!

Perfect for a family reunion in the vicinity.

  • 5 of 5

This is a small but very well-designed and well-equipped little cottage. We are birdlovers, and the fantastic march outside the back deck was full of glorious birds! The Craigville beach was crowded on weekends but perfect for kids. The owners, John and Joanne, were staying next door and were most hospitable and helpful, including lending us oars for the rowboat, and nets for crabbing.

Owner's Response: We love folks who come and enjoy the ambience and sometimes we have the pleasure of their grand kids visiting and exploring and crabbing off the dock--so special!

Beautiful updated cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at this cottage. The cottage is beautiful and ideally located on an estuary just a short walk from the beach. It was the perfect size for our small family of three. My two year old is still asking to go back to the beach house! We hope to enjoy it again next year.

Perfect for a Small Family!

  • 5 of 5

The house has a great location that gives you enough privacy but speedy access to the beach. Having a small family with a 1 year-old, I found it safe, clean and pre-stocked with everything we would need outside of food. This also included beach blankets, umbrellas, chairs, and balls. Another big perk was having the ability to do laundry at the house since clothes tend to pile up with the little guy.

The backyard offers some amazing unadvertised river views that you can see from the mosquito free deck or dock. In addition, you have the option of using a row boat on rotating days for a little adventure.
