"Southwest at Little Harbor has been our summer haven and getaway since 2004. This home and property provides one of the most spectacular experiences that any family of any size could ever ask for. We have had a large number of friends and relatives come by for anywhere from a few days to the entire week. There was room for everyone without getting in each others' way. With a huge living room, two sun porches, a beautiful and spacious deck overlooking the water on Buzzard's Bay (which means it is calm enough for even small children), two kitchens, 3 refrigerators, washing machine and dryer, bathrooms on all floors and a wonderful breeze off the ocean at night, the experience is memorable and yet comfortable and homey.
The grounds are kept in excellent condition and the beach is wide enough to accommodate even an enormous group. It is only a 5 to 10 minute drive to grocery stores, restaurants, a water park and other forms of entertainment. If it is your first time, I guarantee that as you turn in the small road marked 5 Bayberry and start up the driveway to the house, your heart rate will not stay below 100! It is so exciting and the anticipation is almost overwhelming.
The owners are helpful and gracious and are always looking for ways to improve the experience. There are always new pieces of lovely furniture or improvements in the building itself that made the entire experience much more enjoyable. If you asked me whether I would prefer a FREE week in the Bahamas, Bermuda, or any other vacation spot over Southwest at Little Harbor, I would have to say "No." This is the best and our entire family recommends it without reservation."

"My wife and I plus our Golden Retiever spent a week here in mid August. The location was perfectly situated, just a short walk across some dunes to the beach which seemed frequented by more wildlife than people.... stunning. The cottage was cozy with all amenities from big screen iMac and printer for those google maps, flat screen TV and well stocked kitchen. We used the propane grill nearly every night, enjoying local seafood and vegetables. There was a nice little breakfast place within a morning dogs walk away. It was also a relatively short ( always depending on time of day ) drive up the coast to enjoy other picturesque beaches at the National Sea Shore and Provincetown. The cottage is adjacent to the owners home who was incredibly hospitable and provided a wealth of suggestions wittily described for supplies, restaurants and local knowledge. The pizza was killer! We had a terrific vacation and will definitely be going back in the future."

"We just spent a week at this home at it was a WONDERFUL vacation for all. Martha answered all of my questions before our trip and checked in with us during the week as well. The house was spotless upon our arrival and it was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need! Every couple had their own bedroom AND bathroom and many enjoyed the outdoor shower as well. The kitchen made cooking and grilling there so easy and enjoyable. The neighborhood is very peaceful and it is a short walk to Forest Beach. All bed linens and beach towels are provided as well which makes packing a breeze. I hope to return to this home again in the future. Thanks Martha!"

"What an amazing vacation! The house is perfectly situated on Bucks Pond at the end of a dead end street. The private beach is so relaxing. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling--even pulling the beach chairs down to the private beach to read with our feet in the warm water. We kayaked daily, whether it be just around the pond, or to one of the association beaches for more swimming. Our daughters now believe that a pond/lake is better than the ocean! The wildlife was wonderful as well. My 11-year-old future ornithologist was thrilled to see a cormorant, an osprey, Canada geese, catbirds, and many other songbirds during the course of the week. We did day trips on the Cape Cod Rail Trial, to Coast Guard Beach, and to Wellfleet and Orleans. The deck was wonderful for our nightly grilling and relaxing--and NO MOSQUITOS! The house was so sunny and bright, had a large table, large living room, huge master bedroom and a well-appointed kitchen. We definitely plan to return!"
