Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I were looking for a place to get away for a week and visit with family in the area. This cottage was just perfect. A great place to unwind after day trips around the area. Beautiful scenery up and down the coast. Everything we wanted was right there in the cottage. Only a mile away from Petey's Seafood restaurant was an added bonus..... great chowder.

We picked a great week!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay turned out to be perfect. Two couples in this two bedroom would have been tight but if it's summer--no problem.

The condo was clean, welcoming and all we had hoped for. The amenities were perfect. We didn't want for a single thing---right down to umbrellas for walking in the rain. We loved being close to Portsmouth but we especially loved being able to walk on the beautiful beach every day while we were there. Petey's and Ray's in Rye for chowder and lobster. Portsmouth Harbor Tour, Navy Yard Tour, Strawberry Banke, Odiorne Science Center--all within a short drive. We loved all the beautiful houses to see in the area as well.

Highly Recommend - Stayed June 2011

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at this property. The kids loved our "beach house" by the sea. So comfortable, welcoming, and well-maintained. I would highly recommend for families who want the flexibility of going to and from the beach during the day. It was everything we expected and more. Mike was very easy to work with to arrange our visit and left a nice welcoming gift; we didn't need to call him once during our stay as there was not a single issue with the property. Felt like home.

Heaven by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August and the place is just perfect! If you're looking to relax and get away from it all this is the place. Mike and Melissa are wonderful host, and make enjoying your vacation very easy. The location is perfect, you are across the street from the water so, no driving or long walks it's as easy as crossing the street. The place is kept beautifully with everything thing you need so you don't have to bring everything and the kitchen sink. I would highly recommend that you seriously consider this for your summer rental just don't take my week! I've rented in this area for over 30 years and this is the nicest, closest to water I've ever found. Wallis Sands is the areas best kept secret.
