We stayed here for a 4 day company retreat nearby. Great location, easily accessible, comfortable space and well supplied kitchen. Would definitely stay here again.

We would stay here again without hesitation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little house in a quiet spot with parking that easily accommodated our car and the cars of guest who came to spend the day with us. Five minute walk to short sands beach, restaurants and shopping. Driving in and out is very easy and avoids the worst of the short sands traffic. The house was well furnished and comfortable, even the porch furniture was nice and not flimsy little plastic chairs. There is a nice little fenced in lawn with a picnic table. There is supposed to be a gas and charcoal grill outside, however when we arrived the gas grill was gone and our host told us it had been damaged by previous guests. Even still, the charcoal, lighter and fluid were all provided by our host. The only caution I would offer potential guests is the stairs are very steep, so if you have a hard time walking they may be too much to handle. Our host was polite and responsive, I hope she will have us again.

Relaxing Summer Stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, and updated with nice beds, bedding and other furnishings. The dryer was a plus but the washer took too long (1.5 hours per load)and probably needs a service call, but did the job. Met the care taker both upon arrival and departure. Extremely friendly and never rushed us at all. The house was so comfortable and we had plenty of space. Very safe neighborhood. Loved that it has a clothesline for drying beach towels. We ate outside at the picnic table and spent any nights hanging out on the porch on super comfy furniture. The stairs leading up to the bedrooms are a bit tiny but no biggie! Plenty of games to use and a nice TV to watch during down time. There were a some ant traps around and a found a few in the house (which I could have done without)but they were never found in cabinets or where food was stored :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would for sure choose to stay here again and would highly recommend it !!!!

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great family vacation. Short walk to short sands beach and also the downtown with many great shops and restaurants. The cottage is family friendly, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed sitting on the covered porch in the evening. Thank you for a great week.
