Cozy, near beach and quaint towns

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cottage as stated, near beach. Just as advertised. Quaint towns nearby for fun things to do when not enjoying the private beach access.

A great home base for beach days and sightseeing!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this beach cottage. We felt relaxed as soon as we arrived, and this place had all of the amenities so that we were able to cook and enjoy some meals on our own, and unwind with a movie and some wine picked up from the local wineries. With a very short walk to the beach, it was easy to go out for a couple of hours, come back inside, and go out on the beach again. Owners were very good about checking in to make sure we were all set. We would stay here again!

Lovely cottage, close to the beach - a perfect beach get away!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at this cottage. The cottage is very close to the beach and is close to lots of wonderful restaurants and activities (for example, about a 5 minute drive to Galien River Kayaking and a 10 minute drive from Captain Mike's Fun Park). There's also a sweet little store close to the cottage called The Whistle Stop that has wonderful coffee and pastries plus basics (eggs, milk, newspapers, etc.) The beach is BEAUTIFUL! The cottage itself is very cute inside, very comfortable and very quiet. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed to cook for our family of 4 plus there's a grill in the back. Steve was a wonderful host and provided us with everything we needed. He was very quick to answer questions. We had an incredible vacation and plan to return!

Perfect family get-a-away

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation here in July and had a wonderful time. Location to beach was much closer than expected. Size and amenities of the cottage was perfect for our family of 4 (including 2 teenage daughters). Steve was great at communicating all details and went above and beyond to make our stay most enjoyable. We will look forward to returning next year and hopefully years to come.
