Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and friends surprised me with a spectacular birthday gift -- a trip to the Beach House on Moss Beach. What can I say? It was perfection. Thank you to all involved. The house is excellent in every way. The thoughtful touches everywhere made it so special!

Private, cozy beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this house is a real treasure. We will be back for sure! The beach just down a short trail is truly unique and very secluded. Right now the other houses that share access to the beach seem unoccupied, adding even more privacy. Our daughter (and we) loved the hot tub and wrap around wood deck.

Our hosts went the extra mile, leaving out a kid's place setting at the dining table and a couple of special gift for our little girl. I had a moment of panic about something minor and called the owners - they responded immediately and even offered to go above and beyond to help keep us happy.

Without a doubt and excellent experience!

Exactly what we were looking for! Family friendly, ultra clean and beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family cannot thank you enough for the wonderful vacation. The hot tub was a hit with our two children and grandma (super clean-- thank you). The private beach was incredible. We sat and watched waves and seals for hours while the children played in the sand. A BIG thank you for having sand toys. The "area book" you put together was helpful. My parents were concerned it would be hard to get tot he beach however with the detail you provided in that book they were able to do it! The beds were comfortable and the beach house was very comfortable. The entire visit was perfect and we are grateful. We look forward to making this an annual trip. I've already told several friends and co-workers about your home. Thank you again!

Great View and Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for a nice relaxing beach vacation. Beautiful view with deck. We loved the Jacuzzi. The house made you feel like you were having a true beach vacation. The hosts left us muffins and wine which was an appreciated touch. Would go back again and again!

November Coastal Summit

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this beautiful home that already hasn't been said. We had a business Summit for several Doctors from along the West Coast meet here for an annual retreat. Most places along the coastline here do not have beach access, but this one does. The hikes along the coastal trails are magnificent and the sunsets are spectacular. The house is just absolutely amazing. It has a gigantic deck for morning breakfasts and sunset cocktails, and when it cools down, a protected area with a large gas fire-pit for enjoying cigars and nightcaps. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The beds were comfortable, and the pillows were soft and fresh. The Wi-Fi and electronics all were in perfect condition, and allowed us to have a very successful and enjoyable Summit Weekend. We will be back for sure.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the beach house. We spent 4 nights with family. The house is well appointed with all that we needed. The books, games and puzzles were fun for all of us. The walks on the beach and on the bluffs were wonderful and relaxing. The hot tub was another treat. The Fitzgerald Marine Reserve is just minutes away.

We hope to return in the future.
