  • Lovely Vacation at Lovely Beach House

    "Pictures do not do this house justice. Our family of four (two teens) really could not have asked for more from this property and this location. The sprawling Craigville Beach is across the street and the river is in the backyard. The kids loved kayaking on the river and taking photos of all the wildlife. They took beautiful photographs which will become family treasures. The house was very clean and stocked with a full kitchen and a nice gas grill for my husband the Grill Master. The owners gave us wonderful suggestions on their favorite places to eat throughout the Cape and we tried a handful of these and enjoyed them all. We were first-time vacationers to Cape Cod and I have to say we had a wonderful wonderful time."

  • Perfect House - Perfect Location - Awesome Pool

    "We had an incredible family vacation in this quiet house at the end of a road, yet close to town. The house is well taken care of and CLEAN!! Nathan and Cheryl are helpful and quick to reply! All the essentials were provided. Enjoyed our breakfast by the pool each morning as we watched the kids play in the pool. It was nice to end the day with the outdoor shower. We had bikes delivered to the house and explored the island. The air conditioning was a plus too! Will definitely be back next year! Highly recommend this rental!!"

  • Just the perfect family getaway in the Berkshires

    "Our new favorite place-thank you Corinna for making us feel right at home! The house had everything we needed: An incredible and unsuspected amount of space-which was perfect for us and four kids/teenagers ;-) The formal dining room was large -we had dinners and brunch with family and lingered in conversation it was so comfortable. In the eve we had cheese/crackers and wine out on the enclosed porch. The bedrooms were beautiful and very comfortable. The master was private and the other two bedrooms were far enough away that we all had privacy. Can't say enough about the charm and comfort of the whole house. I found myself in the kitchen wanting to bake with all the wonderful dishes that Corinna has available. Location was also perfect for us to do all we had planned-so close to GB. As a runner I was able to take off in different directions and enjoy a new run each day. The house is clean and well cared for and it shows! We hope to be back soon!"

  • perfect martha's vineyard get away

    "We have rented this house two years in a row. It is perfect for our family of five. There is plenty of room both inside and outside. We love all of the nautical and beach details throughout the house. The back porch is perfect for grilling and watching the stars. Our kids are particularly fond of the tree house and of having the upstairs bedrooms to themselves. It is also very close to the bike path that leads to the beach and into edgartown. We can't wait to return next summer."
