Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting us your adorable cottage. We had such a great time. I loved waking up and having breakfast out on the little patio. It was so nice and quiet in the neighborhood all the time. The short walk to the beach was so nice and peaceful.

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a very cute cottage that is within walking distance of several public beaches, as advertised - close enough that we got up every morning to walk down to the beach to watch the sun rise over the ocean :) The house itself was clean and had everything we needed for our stay - some cups and plates, a microwave, a grill, even a tiny oven.

It is the perfect size for about four people - my sister, her fiance, my mom and I stayed for the weekend, and did not feel like we were on top of each other or in each other's way. Any more than that, and it might start to feel a bit cramped.

Like other reviews say, there is an air conditioner in both bedrooms, and one in the living room, however we did not need to use them at any point during our stay - even in 80 degree weather the breeze this close to the beach kept the house reasonably cool at night.

This location is about an hour drive from Provincetown, which is close enough that you can go there for the day and not feel like you have driven a million hours. There are also a lot of nice places to eat within a 15 minute drive - the nights we weren't in Provincetown, we found plenty of great restaurants to eat at. It is also about 15 minutes from the Cape Cod Rail Trail.

My one complaint is that the twin mattresses were a little uncomfortably firm - but I noticed that another reviewer said they were not firm enough, so I guess you can't please everyone :-P

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our vacation. It had all the basics and very clean. Perfect location to beaches (walking distance) and not far from grocery stores, restaurants and area attractions.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Donna was there to greet us when we arrived in the Cape. She was welcoming and gave us a great tour of the cottage and yard. The cottage was so much more spacious than the pictures showed. It had a great living room with a kitchen attached and a bathroom with two spacious bedrooms. There were only two spots for parking cars that was fine for how many people we had. Overall great and would stay again!

Cute & nice little place, walking distance to the beach, owners were very easy to work with

  • 5 of 5

This house is walking distance to the beach. It has air conditioner in the 2 bedrooms and also 1 in the living room. The living room is big enough to put an airbed mattress after moving the furniture to the side. Nice privacy in the back patio. We were able to use the grill to cook and the table & chairs to eat outside. There were pots & pans, dishes & utensils, microwave & toaster, and other stuff. There is no dishwasher but we bought some paper plates so that we didn't have to do dishes all the time. We paid extra $50 for linens so we didn't have to bring bed sheets & towels from home, less things to pack & wash after. Owners were very nice and met us during check in. They told us to call them if we needed anything, but we didn't have to call except to tell them that we're leaving and the keys will be on the kitchen table. Thank you for letting us rent your place... The Seney Family

Excellent Cape Cod Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this location. The cottage was perfect for a family of 3 or 4, with very clean and comfortable arrangements in a nice, quiet neighborhood. As advertised, the cottage is only a short walk to a nice public beach and a variety of good restaurants were within a 5 minute drive. The location is very central and within close driving distance to a number of Cape Cod attractions. Donna and Jim were great about communicating about the rental and coordinating the key drops - they clearly take a lot of pride in their property. This was essentially a perfect rental and we look forward to staying again in the future.

Great weekend getaway with our twin toddlers

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend making new family memories. The property is just as described. It was a short walk to the beach and nearby park. Our 2.5 year old twins had no problem keeping up on the walk. The property was fairly clean. All in all, we had a great weekend in the Cape. Donna was accommodating and allowed us to check-in at 2:00 as the property was ready. Even though the property is on a main street and next to a motel, it was still very quiet and peaceful. We would stay again for a weekend.
