About the owner: Hello We are the Vivolo's Proud owners of the Blue Pearl and Clamshell Cottage located next door to each other, just steps to the ocean This is our home away from home

Why the Owner Chose Saco:
We chose to buy these cottages because they were so close to the ocean and we had small children and loved the idea of being able to go back to the cottage for bathroom breaks , lunch and forgotten items Bringing the beach chairs and toys to the beach is a breeze , i cant imagin having to lug all the days beach items like some people have to do in cottages far from the beach

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
