Reviewer Comments:

It was a wonderful week. The one thing was that there were ants in the kitchen which got into the food on the counter. The management company should check each week to see if there are ants present then place traps to get rid of them. We would definitely rent again but bring the traps to be safe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the property! This owner employs a private cleaner to ensure the house is at it's very best week after week. With regards to the ants, we are so sorry that you encountered them during your stay. In the future, if this ever happens, please call our office and we will promply send someone out to remidy the issue. The ants were not there at the time the cleaners or the inspectors released the home. Again, we really appreciate the feedback and plan to use it!

Reviewer Comments:

Great location! 3 min walk to beach, no traffic, private, well-kept property. Easy access to shopping and recreation (far enough north that traffic is reasonable). Bottom level nicely finished out in 2016. Basketball goal was broken when we arrived, but replaced with no hassle. Pool very kid-friendly. One bedroom missing fan/light remote: reported but not replaced during our visit. House easily supported 4 families, 13 people, ranging from 6 to 77 yo. We recommend!

A great time with all of the family! This area included the historic village, the Wild Horse Foundation Tour, wine tasting Wednesday, crabbing, the Whalehead Club and lighthouse were all an added bonus.

Reviewer Comments:

The house overall was lovely, but it looked like it had been a while since the owners had done maintenance and the cleaning service had done a poor job. The curtains were ragged and there were some dead insects on the floor. We knew that we would have to supply our own towels, but the fact that the crew didn't even bother to make the beds was frustrating after getting to the house after a day of driving. Additionally, there were not enough pillows on the beds and no additional pillow cases were given to cover the pillows in storage. The sound system, vcr, and tv needed a serious upgrade as well. One thing I did appreciate was the abundance of utensils and kitchenware, and the new dishwasher.

Owner's Response: This cottage does provide sheets, but not "beds made". Different homes provide different combinations of sheets, towels, and beds made, so be sure to look for what you're interested in when booking your reservation. I will pass the other comments on to the owner. Thank you for your feedback.

Wonderful week at the beach with family and family. Spacious unit with good open floor plan, nice accomodations. Need a new coffee maker and should supply toilet paper (at least one roll per bathroom)
