  • Incredible Home

    "We visited family in MA for the holidays and needed a 3 bedroom home. I use VRBO often and there are always so many homes to choose from it can be overwhelming. The rental fee for this home was so reasonable, we were even concerned the house might not live up to it's description. We received far more than we ever expected! The home was beautiful, the rooms were spacious, the kitchen full of any utensils you might need, the water was right out the back door,..... I could go on and on. If you are going to be in this area, this rental will not disappoint you. And, the owners are Awesome!"

  • Fantastic Time

    "We had a great time at Blue Moon. The weather was awesome, too! We have stayed at many vacation homes and Blue Moon was one of the best!. It is very dog friendly.There was a dish of fresh water waiting for our thirsty pooches!! So thoughtful and appreciated. The yard is fully fenced in. Nice deck and a short jaunt to the beach. Shopping and sight-seeing near-by. Thanks again for the use of your wonderful home!"

  • What a find!

    "My sister and I had a great stay at Sky House. Very comfy, cosy, wonderful views. We had a bedroom each, and there is a handy half-bath upstairs, not listed. We enjoyed the warm fall weather on the deck overlooking the ocean, then spent most of our time cycling, and walking the wonderful unspoilt beaches of the area. We loved West Island, Demarest Lloyd, Horseneck Beach, Gooseberry Island, Allens Pond Mass Audubon - never even made it to the Phoenix bike trail or the many beautiful historic buildings right in Fairhaven, or the whaling museum! We took our own food and ate most meals in (the kitchen is well-equipped) but there are plenty of restaurants and markets in Fairhaven. We took the ferry over to Cuttyhunk Island - be warned after Labor Day everything is closed up tight (take your own food!). We found the whole area to be uncrowded and untouristy, and will definitely be back. Only 87 miles, an easy drive from my Central Mass home."
