Our Home Away From Home for February, March and April
"This is our fifth year renting from Doug and all I can say is that the house works really well for us. The house is situated in a cul de sac and all along the backside of the house are windows and glass doors that offer stunning views of the marsh. A day doesn’t go by without colorful wildlife flying overhead or deer treckking across the marsh.
The interior of the house is spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom & bath are at one end of the house and the guest bedrooms & bathrooms are located at the other end. This makes it nice for guests to have their privacy and vice versa. The kitchen is a little dated but is complete with all the necessary appliances, dishes, etc. My husband has created his own work area at one end of the master bedroom and finds it comfortable. We used the dinning room once in five years because we prefer to sit in the kitchen-family area where we can enjoy the view and natural light. We have never used the living room. It is just my husband, our yellow lab and myself.
The beach and golf courses are within a five- minute drive. The bike path is less than a minute from the bottom of the driveway. The grocery store and boutiques are a 10-15 minute drive.
Doug has been a great landlord. He is attentive and returns calls in a timely manner to assist in resolving any issues.
We hope to return for a sixth time…!"

The beach is beautiful, the bike paths are great and so many fun things to do and explore. We highly recommend staying here and will definately stay again."

"This is our second year at this Ocean Woods Cottage and we are booking our third year. The home was just as it had been the year prior and worked beautifully for our family with 3 small children. I love the sight lines from the kitchen, dining and sofa areas. The location can't be beat for us. We can walk to the Sanctuary along the beach with a stroller for lunch or dinner and be back in time for naps."

"The cottage is exactly as represented and worked perfectly for us. Arranging the rental was easy and uncomplicated. I would consider staying there again and would definitely recommend it. We went in February so we did not get to experience many of the features of the Island but we enjoyed ourselves regardless. We loved taking the dogs on the beach where they ran with joyful abandon, playing fetch and exploring smells. The beach surface was great for walking and we saw some awesome sunsets on the beach as the colors were reflected on the sand. Quite beautiful. I loved being so close to Night Heron Park and saw a lot of wildlife. Really enjoyed walking, biking and just enjoying escaping the colder north."
