Dear Mimi, I want to tell you how much we loved staying at your cottage!!! It was comfortable, cozy and extremely clean!!!!!!! It has everything one would need for a relaxing time at the beach. Mia loved the short walk to the beach and once there, enjoyed playing in the sand and water. Everyday when I put her harness on she literally pulled me to get to the beach. (the reason why I mention this is because she is trained to walk on lead but she forgot her manners when it came to her new playground). Thank you again for the opportunity to bring Mia and I hope to have the opportunity again to enjoy your little jewel by the ocean. Sincerely, Linda
We are thrilled that you and Mia had such a wonderful time. Our Maizey feels the same way about the beach. We hope you come and stay again soon. Hopefully, we will have more improvements next year, Enjoy the Fall. Mimi
Our family had a fun stay on the Cape! Quick access to the beach, yet set back from the road. We were here on a Father’s Day getaway. We made some great memories! Hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill-s’mores over the fire pit, glass of wine sitting in the enclosed porch.
The property was perfect! Everything you could posssibly need was there.
My visit could not have been more perfect. The cottage and outside property had everything you could ever need or want. Everything was clean and new and well thought out, to use all the space in the cottage effectively and efficiently. This vacation was my celebration of two years remission from a long hard five year battle with cancer. I could not have chosen a more perfect location, than the Red Crab Cottage.
This is been our first year ever renting out a property. It has been so rewarding for us. It's not just the extra income that allows us to have a summer cottage but instead the wonderful strangers we get to share our place with.. Judi(along with so many others) has been one of those people. We have never met or spoken on the phone but I feel I know her so well. It brings us great joy that we could be apart of her happiness for a few days. We hope she returns. It is so satisfying to know that your home put a smile on Someone's face-even a dogs!
Perfect Cape cottage!
We have stayed in Eastham three other times and this was our favorite rental. It is super close to the bay (5 min walk) and many great restaurants. The cottage itself is awesome! It was perfect for our family of four. It is small but they made great use of the space you really don't notice it. It also has a huge property where you can spread out outside. Mimi and Steve have the place outfitted with all the toys you might want or need - bikes, beach chairs, floats, kayaks, a paddle board, a cooler, beach toys, grill etc (I'm sure I am forgetting things). Also the washer and dryer on site is key. Everything is new, which does make a big difference (we have stayed in places where things were not so nice). Also Mimi was extremely accessible and quick to respond when we needed anything. I hesitated for a minute to write this review because we want to keep this place a secret (ha ha). It really is perfect.
Thank you so much for the great review. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed it as much as we do. We have since added surfboards and a zip line. It took Steve a week to put it up! We hope to have made some improvements on the house by next spring(I'm hoping for a three season porch). All the best. Mim
Great location, property, and host
This cozy cottage was perfect for my girlfriend and I and our 12 year old dog and we could've comfortably fit more. It's walking distance to the bay beach and just a quick drive to the National Seashore. The cottage was clean with nice furniture and there's plenty of space for the dog to sniff around outside or take smells in from the screened in porch. Plenty of privacy along w/ kayaks, bikes, and other toys, a grill, picnic table, hammock, etc. which were all bonuses. Mimi was a great host, easily reachable, and everything was as advertised. We will definitely be back again.
Matthew and his crew were wonderful. They left the home in excellent condition. They were lovely to work with. I hope they come back again soon. The perfect guest.
Mimi and Steve
