Getaway for hubby birthday

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful!! We arrived earlier than we were supposed to but Gary welcomed us!! Cottage has everything you need ! Loved the fenced in yard .. back and front yard seperate which is great.. shower is new ,clean and has good water pressure.. great tv .. u can walk to pier and boardwalk and great restaurants. Dog friendly w a dog friendly beach about 2 miles from cottage.. pup loved it all! Bed is very comfortable w extra pillows.. futon in living room u can curl up on.. kitchen well stocked w things you need but not what you want to bring. Many dog friendly restaurants!! Loved that! I will definitely return .. I hesitate to tell friends they will steal my dates!!( just kidding!) no extra charge for the pup .. and he loved having the yard to explore. I loved the entire vibe of cottage and the twin beaches ..I am looking forward to a return visit. Thank you Gary and Seahorse Cottage for a great birthday getaway!

Clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

I chose this house because of it's unique location and price while we visited DC. Closest metro is 30 min away, well worth the drive and we love the metro.

Owners are next door and helpful.

House is clean and had everything we needed.

Cozy Cottage for Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We decided over Christmas break to spend a few days in North Beach, near to where we used to live. The Seahorse Guesthouse was great for us. The wife and I had the bedroom, with one daughter sleeping on the futon sofa and the other on the porch daybed, with dog nearby. Fenced front and back yards allowed for the dog to run without us worrying about him in the street. The cottage is close to boardwalk and restaurants, and the owners are adjacent. A great time and would return!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The town is a hidden gem where people keep their doors open and say hello as you pass on the streets. Almost everything is walkable. The owner provides passes to the beach and parking. The Jameson's are great hosts and wonderful people.

A wonderful combination of old-fashioned charm, modern convenience, and proximity to the Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, as described. (Studio rental is separate.) Very comfortable for a couple. Simply but beautifully furnished. Very high quality linens and towels, including beach towels, a really nice touch. Renovated bathroom and kitchen, comfy mattress. Great cable, very reliable internet. An older property but clean and well-maintained, with a huge fenced yard and lots of privacy. Wonderful original artwork on the walls. Gary was a most accommodating and welcoming landlord. He allowed us to bring our two cats, who clearly took no time feeling at home. I would recommend this property to friends or relatives. We walked every morning on the Boardwalk (you get to know all the regulars) and kayaked nearly every day from the West Marina,, one mile away. One of the nicest features of the Seahorse Cottage was access to the tomato and herb garden, of which we made much use. Also loved the weekly Friday evening Farmers Market and the Chesapeake's Bounty produce store, but if you are a cook you may want to bring your own knives and favorite pans.

We stayed for three weeks in July/ August.

Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (family of four plus dog) enjoyed our time at the Seahorse cottage. The cottage was clean and well-appointed, with a terrific amount of kitchen supplies including coffee maker, blender, and cooking utensils. Towels, sheets, and blankets were all super soft and quality materials. The cottage had cable, wifi, and a DVD player, which was an awesome way to fill a rainy afternoon. The host has also provided Scrabble, Chess, and a jigsaw puzzle for quiet entertainment as well.

We walked to the beach, to restaurants, and to ice cream. At the Cold Penguin, we enjoyed great waffle cones and even got a beef-flavored doggie sundae (which was a big hit, BTW.) Around the corner is Neptune's, where we had good pizza and burgers. We were so close, I was able to run back to the cottage quickly for jackets when the restaurant got too cold. Thanks to the cottage we were able to keep our out-of-pocket costs pretty low.

Our host was very accessible and friendly. Gary and his wife live adjacent to the cottage and have lots of great recommendations for enjoying their town.
