What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice, comfortable house with beautifully landscaped yard and gardens. We felt at home the minute we walked in and could feel the great karma and love the owners have for it. It was very private, yet a short walk to the beach and store. We look forward to renting this home again

Nearly Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This property is SO beautiful, the cottage was sparkling clean, well-decorated and just an all-around lovely house and location! We were thrilled to be so close to such a pristine beach, which was easily accessible with a somewhat private feel.

Joel was easy to contact and communicated in a timely manner-- I definitely got the feeling that this cottage is more than "just" a rental property to him. This was especially evident in the beautiful landscaping and pristine condition of the cottage.

If you get a chance to check this lovely place out, I would highly recommend it!

Great Find

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property over the Labor Day weekend for my nieces wedding and I can't say enough about the job done by Joel and Dawn with their rental cottage. The outside of the property was very nicely landscaped and provided an excellent backdrop for the wedding photos of the bride and her bridal party. The inside was as advertised, cozy, very comfortable, and very clean and for a "cottage" provided plenty of room. The 2 separate decks were also a quite spacious and relaxing. If we ever get back to Scarborough, we plan on staying their again! Give it a try!!
