West Island is one of Massachusetts' best-kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's Bay, this true island was the former summer fishing and hunting ground of the Wampanoag Indians. Over the past few centuries it has evolved into a delightful destination for travelers from all over the globe. Surrounded by Buzzard's Bay, this small island has 5 beaches, warm waters and easy access to many great tourist locales. Access to island is by bridge. Approximately two thirds of the island is State reservation land with hiking/walking trails. It is not uncommon to see wildlife such as rabbits, possum, deer, coyotes, fox, raccoons and a host of shore birds.

Used West Island as a "home base"
Used West Island as a "home base"
We (family of 2) would rate Misty Bay property as "very good" (unfortunately, that choice wasn't available). We used Misty Bay as the home base to visit New Bedford, Fairhaven, Fall River, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod (round trip to Provincetown), Falmouth/Woods Hole, Concord and Lexington, etc. All were easily accessible from Misty Bay. Very good restaurants in Fairhaven and New bedford, all within 15 minutes from Misty Bay. Regarding the house, it is located in an extremly quiet area. The view (of Buzzards Bay) from the bay window of the living area is excellent. The house is well furnished. On the "con" side, having only one bath would likely be a drawback to 4+ renters. Also, there is a lack of some helpful hints posted in the house (e.g., when to place garbage cans at the road, and instructions for operating the media devices and the washer/dryer units). Would we rent this house again? You bet!

The house was enjoyable, spacious, close to the see, in a quiet environment. The West Island is a nice area. The sand beach is at a walking distance. The realtor was nearby and more than available whenever needed. You have to protect yourself against the mosquitos.

The house was absolutely beautiful. The open floor plan was great. House was very clean. All amenities and then some such that we didnt need to bring half the items we brought with. Lots of closet space and a beautiful kitchen to entertain in. Tv and internet was a breeze to log on to. Very nice quite neighborhood with a nice view of the bay. I would definitely recommend this property if staying in the fairhaven area.
