A Bit of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This home is set in a peaceful wooded area--my dog and I just loved it (there's a dog run too, in the property's sunniest spot!). I relished having morning coffee in the screened porch or warm window seat with a view. The surrounding area also has amazing natural parks for picnicking and hiking, close to ocean, too. Every day brought something new to see, including a fabulous local winery in Westport that makes amazing sparkling wine--who knew?! And Lee's market with its homemade deli hit the spot too.

The homeowner could not have been more gracious, leaving the house spotless, with a complimentary lasagna meal, and generously offering use of her CD collection. Everything I needed to truly feel at home. There's a nasty review on this site by some people who must not have known they were renting a real home in the country; I can't imagine what they didn't like about it--if you are seeking a low-key, relaxing retreat (without the hassles of the Cape!) then you will love it. I will definitely go back, especially since there's so much of the countryside I did NOT get to explore this time.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to deal with this renter, and I am happy that she and her dog relished both my house and the locale. She explored the area, which offers a variety of beautiful spaces---the beach, the protected areas in Dartmouth and Westport for walking, Lee's market, and even the local winery. I look forward to renting to her again!

Woodsy retreat

  • 5 of 5

This pleasant home offers complete privacy in a woodsy setting, yet is not far from the beach or shopping areas. Huge yard a big plus.

The house was clean and well stocked and proved to be an excellent spot for a vacation.

The owner went out of her way to ensure her guest's comfort.

Fun Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental during a week in late August. The pretty drive in on the country road was wonderful, and the house easy to find. The house was in great shape when we arrived, both clean and inviting, with the screened in porch being utilized immediately after unpacking. The house was comfortable and was stocked with every ammenity that we would need. The owner was very easy to work and accessible with whether by phone or email. We were glad we were able to bring our dog, as many places don’t let you. There was a large yard and better yet – a dog run – that kept our dog exercised and happy. Of course we did take advantage of the wonderful trails on the property ourselves. And we loved Horseneck Beach is with its rolling dunes, warm water, nice waves, and then to come home and take an outdoor shower in the sunshine – it was fabulous ! There was a great local supermarket AND a fresh seafood market just a few miles down the road, and we cooked some wonderful meals on the big gas grill on the back deck while enjoying the later summer afternoon. What a treat, and wonderful location. I would recommend this place to any to anyone.

Owner's Response: I appreciate this review of my rental. These folks were wonderful to work with, and I am glad they enjoyed their beach week at my house. I know that not many rentals allow dogs, but that is fine with me. My place has lots of space for families who may want to bring a pet along with them.

False advertising

  • 1 of 5

We arrived and couldn't find the property because it wasn't marked properly until we saw a paper bag on a telephone pole. We should of known then. This place is not properly maintained and misrpresented from the yard,ants & spider in the house. Shower won't drain when there is water pressure. Best for everyone to pass on this property. When we called the contact they didn't return call and told owner they did. We left asked for a partial refund & were refused. Then we were abused via email. Life is full of learning experiences.Tim

Owner's Response: Property is clearly marked, and was clean and inviting as advertised. Renter did not contact the owner or house manager as stated, so there was no opportunity to address any issues. Notified on 6th day via email that they were leaving of which renter demanded reimbursement for flight changes. As consolation, owner offered 30% off a future week rental. Renter had unrealistic expectations for this country location.

Business trip turns into true pleasure trip.

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune to rent this property for ten days. I was in town for business and the rate was comparable to a nearby hotel. What was a business trip turned into a real pleasure vacation thanks to this property and the wonderful owner. I was a bit nervous renting a home online with out having any personal recommendations. I am so glad I took the chance. The owner made me feel comfortable immediately. She was incredibly friendly, gracious and accomodating. I was able to bring my dogs with me. She truly welcomed all of us as though we were old friends. The house was very clean, well decorated and comfortable. The owner included so many ammenities I hesitate to mention becasue perhaps she will not be able to provide in the future. She provided fresh flowers and some incredible fresh, organic vegetables. My first night, she provided a lovely dinner of homemade lasagne. Through our conversations, she knew I liked to take my dogs hiking. She took the time to take me to the nearby dog friendly beach, not only to show me where it was but to go for a hike with us. She also took me to nearby woods with fantastic hiking trails. She made certain I knew where everything was and provided me with a contact number in case I needed to reach her for anything. The owner is an avid polo player and happened to have horses on her property during my stay. I was so surprised and grateful when she offered to take me on a trail ride. She took me on a fantastic trail ride. She is a real people person and animal person. One day I was out on business all day and she offered and was able to let my dogs out. She struck a lovely balance of making herself available but also providing me total privacy. She provided information for a very nice nearby health club with great hours, an indoor pool and reasonable rates. There are some very good restaurants near the house. There was one I particularly loved that had a very healthy menu with a large selection. There were a lot of shopping centers nearby. Some great deals at a store called Tuesday Morning. I also left something at the property and the owner so graciously and immediately shipped it to me. I would and have recommended this property to friends and family. I hope to return with my husband for a romantic getaway! This rental was a highlight of 2008 for me even though I was alone on business!
