It's Always 5 O'Clock at this MargaritaVilla!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a Woman's Week Away in this senastional home! We really enjoyed our stay and as Jimmy Buffett fans, playfully referred to this comfortable home as our "MargaritaVilla". The upstairs bedrooms were tastefully decorated with beach colors which along with the cool sea breezes helped us get into the summer spirit.

We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious and well equipped this home is including a fully equipped kitchen with an eat-in breakfast nook, a formal dining room complete with china, a large living room, 1st floor laundry room, fireplace, patio furniture, charcoal grills, beach chairs and umbrella, linens, cable tv, dvd player, boombox, books, jigsaw puzzles, games, koozies, and more. It truly has all the comforts of home and then some..........

Setback on 3 scenic acres, there is enough privacy to unwind and really relax here. As working professionals used to the hustle and bustle of the city, we cherished the quiet nights watching the stars up above while listening to the surf in the distance. We spent our mornings sipping coffee on the porch or biking along the coast. Our afternoons were spent sunbathing on the beautiful beach just down the road.

When we didn't cook at home, we visited a few of the area restaurants. Along Ocean Boulevard Petey's Seafood, Ray's, and the Carriage House Restaurants were all quite good. We especially loved spending Sunday afternoon listening to reggae music at Saunder's Restaurant on Rye Harbor. We stayed for dinner and watched the magnificent sunset over the marsh.

One day, we took an exciting boat trip from Rye Harbor to the Isles of Shoals where we had a picnic lunch. Another day, we took pictures of the flowers at Fuller's Gardens. Shopping together at the nearby Kittery Outlets followed by dinner on the waterfront in downtown Portsmouth topped off an incredible week! We will be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home and look forward to having you return again this summer. This year you might want to drive north on Rt 1A along the breathtaking coastline. Be sure to take some pictures of the Nubble Lighthouse in York, ME and stop by Perkin's Cove in Ogunquit, ME to do some sightseeing and walk the beautiful Marginal Way. Have fun!

Inside of the home was terrific. Outside of the home was not adequately maintained

  • 3 of 5

Inside of the house is fabulous, rustic, perfect spot for a family stay. Quiet but still close to the beach and Portsmouth etc. The outside of the home was disappointing given the lack of maintenance and landscaping with lawn, trees and shrubs overgrown.

Lovely vacation spot in Rye, NH

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults, twin 5 yr olds and family dog found this home to have something for everyone. The twins loved the beach and coming back to the extra long driveway perfect for bike riding. The bikes were supplied by the owner along with a myriad of toys. The air conditioners in two of the bedrooms were a welcome relief as it was 90 degrees or more each day. It was have been nice to have one in the kids room but we thought ahead to bring a window fan and it did help.

Andrea, the owner was always available for questions and suggestions.

We spent time at the beach close by, shopped and ate out in Portsmouth and visited the Oulets of Kittery .

Thank you Andrea for helping to make this a most enjoyable week.

Just Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this vacation rental.From the start Andrea was very helpful and available to answer any questions.Our group included 5 adults and 2 and children(ages 11 and 5).The floor plan of the house could not have been more perfect as there was plenty of "individual" space as well as space to gather.The grounds(about 3 acres) are beautifully maintained and were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.Outdoor activities were numerous with just about anything you can think of supplied.In short,this is an ideal rental for families and we look forward to booking again next year.

Great Home for the Groom's Out-of-Town Family

  • 5 of 5

My oldest son got married in Rye, NH this past July and our family chose to stay in this beautful home by Wallis Sands beach rather than an overpriced, cramped hotel room. The Sunday to Sunday rental period was wonderful as his wedding was on a Saturday and every other home rental I looked at only allowed for a Saturday rental which would have had us moving in or out on his wedding day.

We also brought our old family dog with us from Michigan which made my son very happy. Centrally located to everything, it was easy to get to all the different pre-wedding events and we loved sightseeing in the area. This home was extremely clean, very well equipped, had wireless Internet and plenty of room (both inside and out) for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. In fact, with all the busy wedding festivities going on throughout the week, this home was our own quiet haven where we could escape.

The weather was incredible during our stay and we especially liked our sunset walks on the beach with our dog. The lakes in Michigan are pretty, but the ocean with it's sandy beach, tidal pools, and big rocks is just amazing. We look forward to returning again next year to help them celebrate their anniversary! Thank you for helping to make our week perfect.

Tranquil Home Accessible to Vacation Bounty

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home was our gathering place for a week-long reunion of friends who have spread across the country. What a perfect place for us! Rather than a rental cottage, this is truly a home with all of the comforts. When we arrived, we could immediately start our vacation. The home is very well-maintained and had everything we needed. The owners are attentive to details and were clearly invested in making their home surpass our expectations. They have long-standing ties to the area and were able to provide us with many ideas about local attractions.

The home sits on a beautiful property that provides a tranquil backdrop for relaxation. This offered a wonderful balance of quiet with accessibility. At the house, we felt far away from the hustle and bustle. But as soon as we wanted to participate in activity, we had so many choices close by. Even within the home, we felt that we could spread out or gather together as we wished without concern about space. We had several couples as part of our group, and one of our friends has a baby and noise was never an issue (for the baby or the adults). While we were able to comfortably cook in the fully stocked kitchen, we also enjoyed the area's many diverse restaurants.

We opted to fit in plenty of sightseeing and did not have enough time to fit everything in. There are great choices for both good and bad weather days. We flew into Manchester, NH, and toured the Anheuser-Busch brewery nearby. What a treat. The guided tour was free, and they offered generous samples at the end. We were able to see the Clydesdale horses up close in the barn and spend as much time with them as we wished.

Rye served as a wonderful hub for our activities. The beach was close by and was easily accessible. We spent an afternoon taking in the live reggae outside at Saunders Restaurant, which is on the water and offers beautiful scenery. We enjoyed a boat trip to the Isles of Shoals where we picnicked and took in a bit of history. We spent one day seeing numerous sites as we wound our way up the coast into Maine, which is close to Rye. Lobster was unbelievably inexpensive and fresh, and we were able to buy lobsters at the harbor and enjoy them just a short time later. Scenic Portsmouth has a quaint downtown with shops and restaurants.

This was such a fantastic place to stay, and we would highly recommend this home to others. The comfort and amenities are top-notch. We are hoping to make this home a regular vacation destination.
