  • Last minute trip

    "We were fortunate enough to get this place on a last minute booking. Within an hour our phone call was returned and we were ready to go. James made the booking process simple. We arrived to find a bottle of wine for us and treats for the dog on the counter. The entire place was spotless and well furnished. We only used the king bed, it has quality bedding and was very comfortable. We cooked four meals in the kitchen and everything we needed was there. I have booked places through VRBO 7-8 times and this is by far the highest quality and most reasonably priced place we've found. I will book it for all trips to the coast in the future. The only thing missing is direct beach access from the back door."

  • Really Nice

    "The house was really nice. I was surprised with how big it was. There was so much space. We did find the internet to be a bit spotty but we had a great trip."

  • Great beach cottage and amazing time at the beach!

    "Our family stayed at the Sand Bucket Cottage for spring break and lucked into some amazing weather! We had planned on rainy days but instead enjoyed sunshine, the beach and even outdoor dining! We particularly enjoyed the kid-friendly extras, fire pit and outdoor patio/deck. Also ventured the quick 5 minute drive to Seabrook to eat outside and watch the sunset. We would stay here again. Heres a few pros and cons as a family with young kids. Pros - easy key access to property for check in/out. Owners kindly let us check in early since cottage was empty a few days before. Wifi/Roku/Netflix worked without a glitch. Very well stocked with plenty of extra towels, nice quality linens (Pottery Barn), kitchen supplies (excellent stock of dishes, kids dishes, pots/pans, and small appliances). Love the fireplace which heats the whole space. Family room open to the kitchen. Good useful storage like hooks everywhere for coats, clothes, bags or whatever. Books, games, movies, toys. Appreciated the kids bedrail (my kids are too old but noticed a pack'n'play and high chair). Washer/dryer. Fire pit, yard, cushioned patio set. Short walk to beach, easy street parking or state park (seasonal pass required) for closer access. Cons - wear and tear apparent but does not effect stay or cleanliness (rusty garbage can and light fixtures from moisutre, worn sofa fabrics and cushions, etc). Small dogs are allowed and even though we are not pet owners that is not a deterrent for us. The problem we ran into is dog poop all over the yard. When we arrived one of my kids literally stepped out of the car into a pile of dog poop. We had to hopscotch between the car and front door. I had to go around the yard picking up poop (YUCK!) so my kids could play in the yard and we could walk back to the fire pit without stepping in more. I'm sure it's the renters responsibilities to clean up after their pet but it would be nice if the yard was checked before the next renters. One other small complaint when we first arrived the house must have been sprayed with some type of room freshener (gingerbread scent or something like that). The scent was so overwhelming we had to open every door and window to air the house out. We searched high and low for a plug-in but never found one so assumed it was a spray. Luckily it was a nice day and sat on the deck waiting for the smell to go away but it took a few hours."

  • Great views!

    "We stayed here for our anniversary weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. Pacific beach is really nice with the privacy we were hoping for. We saw four bald eagles on the beach all at once which was amazing. It is a rustic cabin with beautiful views and just what we were looking for. The location is great, very secluded and private and you can't beat that ocean view! The trail isn't too bad but be careful of a lose step. Also be careful not to park under the big tree as it will leak sap as we learned the hard way! If you are looking for a private getaway with a great ocean view, this is your place!"
