"We stayed at Sparrow’s Beach Nest the first week in October 2014 and had a fabulous time. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 small children.
The cottage was wonderful and worked perfectly for everyone, giving us both privacy and great living space. We especially loved the decks!! The shaded one (2nd floor) was what we needed for the sunny days and the top one was great at night. Usually a 2nd floor deck of a 3 story cottage has a view of sand dunes, but not this one. The beach and ocean were in clear view and there was a nice breeze - making it my favorite location!
The outside shower right by the ground floor entry was perfect for getting the sand off the little (and big) ones after being on the beach all day. Yes, we were on the beach in October. It was warm and the water was just right for swimming.
And last, but definitely not least, Lisa was immediately available all week ensuring we had everything we needed. She even called her family veterinarian to secure an appointment for our dog who injured her knee while playing on the beach. That sealed the deal for us - she is awesome and treats guests like family. We will definitely be back to Sparrow’s Beach Nest!!!!"

"Beautiful and cozy home with every thing you may need. This home has the ocean right at the steps you can't get any closer than that. We loved sitting on the porch watching the ocean and the kids play in the sand. If you want a relaxing family vacation this is the best spot. Can't wait till next year!"

"I was so happy to find Merlin's again; we had stayed there a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. It was perfect, one block from the beach, a playground up the street which our grand children loved. It has most everything supplied, (sheets, towels, a fully equipped kitchen, etc.). The new beds were very comfortable. And to top it all off, we had super weather.
Our kids from Ohio (whom we met there), loved it as well.
We hope to make it a yearly, family vacation tradition.
Thanks again, Merlin!"
