Fairhaven House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 8)


Misty Bay Cottage offers a comfortable retreat for visitors with large groups. Its open-concept living, dining room and kitchen allows for large families/parties great entertaining space while the 4 bedrooms offer plenty of sleeping space for those guests who simply don't want to leave idyllic West Island. Two full bathrooms and an outdoor shower mean no waiting in line for the bathroom. Guests have access to WiFi, cable/satellite TV, outdoor shower, BBQ grill and a short walk to 5 beaches on West Island. Enjoy water views from both first and second floors of this well-located home.

West Island is one of Massachusetts' best-kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's Bay, this true island was the former summer fishing and hunting ground of the Wampanoag Indians. Over the past few centuries it has evolved into a delightful destination for travelers from all over the globe. Surrounded by Buzzard's Bay, this small island has 5 beaches, warm waters and easy access to many great tourist locales. Access to island is by bridge. Approximately two thirds of the island is State reservation land with hiking/walking trails. It is not uncommon to see wildlife such as rabbits, possum, deer, coyotes, fox, raccoons and a host of shore birds.

Wonderful Weeek on West island

  • 4 of 5

This house is great for families and for couples. We enjoyed the open floor plan of the house very much. Bedrooms are roomy and the kitchen has everything for preparing meals. Fairhaven Town beach is so beautiful!

Great home in an area that is the Southcoast's hidden gem!

  • 4 of 5

This home is great for families with a great yard and walking distance to the beach. Tim was great to work with and everything was in order. We would recommend this to anybody who wants to relax on West Island and get away from the crowds.

Used West Island as a "home base"

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 2) would rate Misty Bay property as "very good" (unfortunately, that choice wasn't available). We used Misty Bay as the home base to visit New Bedford, Fairhaven, Fall River, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod (round trip to Provincetown), Falmouth/Woods Hole, Concord and Lexington, etc. All were easily accessible from Misty Bay. Very good restaurants in Fairhaven and New bedford, all within 15 minutes from Misty Bay. Regarding the house, it is located in an extremly quiet area. The view (of Buzzards Bay) from the bay window of the living area is excellent. The house is well furnished. On the "con" side, having only one bath would likely be a drawback to 4+ renters. Also, there is a lack of some helpful hints posted in the house (e.g., when to place garbage cans at the road, and instructions for operating the media devices and the washer/dryer units). Would we rent this house again? You bet!

Nice house

  • 5 of 5

The house was enjoyable, spacious, close to the see, in a quiet environment.

The West Island is a nice area. The sand beach is at a walking distance.

The realtor was nearby and more than available whenever needed.

You have to protect yourself against the mosquitos.

Awesome rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful. The open floor plan was great. House was very clean. All amenities and then some such that we didnt need to bring half the items we brought with. Lots of closet space and a beautiful kitchen to entertain in. Tv and internet was a breeze to log on to. Very nice quite neighborhood with a nice view of the bay. I would definitely recommend this property if staying in the fairhaven area.
