Overview

SE Massachusetts & Buzzard's Bay House Rental Photos and Description

This newly built beach style home is a great spot for a fabulous get-away. It offers a spacious place with superb amenities. As well as just a walk from the beach.

This home has 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and is equipped with a private balcony. The guest room is suited with a full sized bed. In addition there is a futon room incorporating 4 full futons. There are 2 full bathrooms, including a jetted tub in the master bath. A spacious kitchen/dining area where you can sit at the dining room table seated for 6 or sit at the exquisite granite island which is also seated for 6. It is fully loaded with stainless steel appliances, including a large fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave, and toaster. The living area has a comfy large sectional and a rocking chair with a flat screen TV. Hard wood floors throughout the second level. Step outside the second level onto the deck which offers an outdoor whicker dining table and chairs overlooking a beautiful foliage view with peep views of the ocean. In addition there is a “breezeway” garage that opens in the front and the back.

This home can also be used for business purposes as well. If you are looking for the home away from home feeling instead of staying at a hotel this is just the place. It is not just your typical vacation home. If you are in the area and need a place to stay before your next stop this home is the place to be.

Building family memories

  • 5 of 5

After making a decision to return to our hometown area for some family bonding time (grandchildren adventure), we searched VRBO for the perfect place. So glad we chose this location. I think the group consensus was, we could enjoy living here long term :-). It really was a relaxing place, and will return if the future has us vacationing in Massachusetts again. We explored the local towns, visited and hosted family, cooked on the grill out back, sat on the numerous decks, spent time at the beach, and played cards well into the evening each night. I think our favorite memory will be the warm feeling attained when we pulled into the driveway each time after a long day of local adventures. Thanks for being part of a great family memory.

Last family vacation at this property

  • 2 of 5

This was our third year at this property and will be our last. The owner was rude and I did not appreciate him telling me to take my grandchildren to the park and bring a chair instead of having them play in the yard. Additionally, the futon room was too hot to sleep in. When I asked the owner to show me how to turn on the AC unit in that room he refused. Said it was cool enough and if he showed me how to turn it on, the kids would play with it and break. As a result, four kids had to sleep on a hardwood floor. Certainly no way anyone should have to spend a vacation sleeping on the floor. After spending our vacation at this property the previous two years, I would have thought he knew we respected his property. No thanks for ruining our vacation. The owner complained about other renters and the problems they caused. Wonder what he says about us. If he is so worried about his property, he shouldn't rent it.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything our family needed for a great getaway: a quiet location, minutes from the beach, access to restaurants and activities like roller-skating, mini-golf and bike trails. The house itself is comfortable and livable, and what a kitchen! The broad bar made it easy for large family dinners. The island itself was fun to explore on bike and on foot--our kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you so much for making your beautiful home available to us! We hope to return next year!

A fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Robin's Nest with our family. Plenty of room for extra visitors, The owner was easy to work with and accommodating. The decor is updated and simple and classy. The deck and yard and garage were great for family clam bakes and lobster. Having the grill was nice for outdoor meals. The futon room was downstairs (ground floor)so our little kids were hesitant to stay there without older kids or adults with them, but there was nice lighting on the stairs. The other 2 bedrooms are on the 3rd floor. The living area where we spent most of our indoor time included the kitchen and living room - a beautiful open space.

The beach that is 2 streets away is easily accessible. We walked there every morning to look for crabs and shells and wade in the water. Had great success fishing off the shore there. The other beach at the south east side of the island (a 3 min drive from the house but a little too far for our little ones to walk) was great for swimming and for kites on windy days. When exploring the island, we found a place where the locals go clamming and talked to some very nice people about about how it was done.

We had so much fun on West Island, we didn't feel the need to go anywhere. Day trips to Plymouth Plantation and the Mayflower, New Bedford Whaling Museum, Cape Cod, and Boston are also very accessible from here. The local food is incredible, also.

I would recommend this rental highly. We had thought our annual vacations to the east coast would take us to a different place each year, but we very well may want to go back to the Robin's Nest.

wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a great vacation staying in this beautiful rental home. We visit Fairhaven every summer to catch up with family & friends. This rental was by far the best place we have rented. It was very spacious, especially open kitchen/living room. We were so happy with our stay and will be remembered as a wonderful family vacation. Overall, i think the house is perfect and would not hesitate going back again. The owner, Mike is wonderful and kind person wanting to do anything that will make the stay memorable. He takes such pride when people enjoy their stay and have a hassle free vacation in a house that he built. All and all, we didn't want to leave!!! We would love to come back again but definitely stay for longer.

Thank you again Mike for everything.

Sincerely

Stephanie D
