Very relaxed, awesome scenery, property was exactly as advertised. Local host which is a plus. Would stay again in a minute. There were only four of us but plenty of room for larger group.
A perfect stay in a perfect place
We loved our week at Liliette’s property. It’s quite hard to capture how perfect the location is. Stunningly beautiful views and easy access to the water. Grill, plenty of kitchen items, etc. Needed for nothing during our stay — the owner is really accessible but not intrusive. I’m sure we will return.
Property was as advertised. Beautiful views! If you're looking to get away for a bit to a nice and quiet location, this is the property to stay at. You won't be disappointed!
Amazing spot, worth the trip, magical environment outside!
Our stay at this property was so wonderful, the location is fantastic and the surrounding town and things to do were just what we love...laid back and relaxing. I had a hard time leaving from our week stay, the view is nothing short of extraordinary with the wildlife (bald eagles, blue herons, SEALS!, ducks, etc all in the "cove" area) while the other side of the view is out to the open ocean. Plenty of space for paddle boarding, boating, kayaking, sun bathing, etc.
I found the amenities to be out dated yet still adorable (it was a walk down memory lane for my mom with all the older dishes, pots, etc). All of the appliances worked fine and the kitchen was adequately stocked with anything we needed to cook at home all week long. There was great counter space, a functioning garbage disposal, ability to recycle, etc.
The only thing that kept me from giving our stay a full 5 star rating are the beds...they all seem to be on the very old side of things and everyone who stayed with us mentioned such. I sat down on the bed (upstairs in the bigger bedroom) our first night there and a bottom slat fell off the frame. The mattresses are all uncomfortable and I am not sure how new they are--its no fun to be sore from sleeping while on vacation.. (The view from this particular bedroom helped to take the sting out of the uncomfortable bed--the moon rose over the ocean each night and it was breathtaking to look at, and listen to the lapping of the water on the rocks of the private beach area, while drifting off to sleep.)
All in all I LOVED our time here (and so did everyone who was with us or joined us later in the week). I found myself really hoping I win the lottery and can buy a place in this area (or even this house!) We will certainly want to come back and will keep our fingers crossed there are new beds!
Subsequent to the summer of 2018, the bed issue has been resolved.
Great location and house
Peaceful getaway in a beautiful setting
We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing week, with plenty of time for reading, swimming, kayaking, exploring, and enjoying time with our family, in a very beautiful and private setting. The house was comfortable and had all that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We hope to return to this spot again.
Thank you so much for the excellent review. I do hope that you decide to stay here again. It was a pleasure.
