West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located on Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).

A great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Greg was a great host, and what a lovely, quiet spot. The place was ready and spotless and the kitchen well stocked with pots and pans and spices that made cooking so easy and pleasant. Walkable to many beaches and the laundry and outdoor shower were added pluses. We had a great time! Would highly recommend.

Perfect Place for a Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

My week at Blue Moon exceeded all of my expectations. The owner/host thought of every detail when preparing this house for rental. The furniture is comfortable and chic, the kitchen is fully equipped with all of the pots, pans and appliances one might need and the master bath even has a blow dryer. To top things off both the beach and bath towels are positively luxurious and there is a outdoor shower. The best part of the house though has to be the screened side porch. There are two cushioned lounge chairs and a table with seating for four as well as an outlet so if you need to work while on vacation you can still be outside. Every morning I had my coffee out on the porch looking out at the private, fenced in garden and yard.

West Island is a wonderful vacation spot. My dog and I did a one mile loop every morning where we visited three beaches. In addition there is a town beach with a life guard (where we didn't go til the last day because there were so many other beaches) and a very private beach accessible via a path through the reservation. We stayed at West Island the first week in August and the afternoons we walked to that beach we never had another person sharing it with us. There is a small convenience store on island with kayaks, bikes and paddle boards for rent as well as ice cream and other necessities and there is a restaurant on the causeway less than a 3/4 of a mile walk away.

Fairhaven is very bike friendly and flat so if you want to go for a long bike ride it is low stress and low impact!

Most of the time I ate at home and used the grill or other items but I did venture out a few times for fried clams and one of the best lobster rolls I've ever had. On the recommendation of the owner I drove maybe 10 miles to Oxford Creamery for an incredible lobster roll on a buttered grilled roll and just a touch of mayo with a generous portion of lobster. Yum!

I was thinking about going to New Bedford and/or the Vineyard but I found that I was not willing to leave the island and Blue Moon for that long. I am absolutely planning on coming back and have already been recommending it to friends.

Beautiful Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful! Blue Moon is a cozy cottage with beautiful décor and all modern kitchen and bath. We recently stayed at Blue Moon on West Island for a week. I highly recommend this property. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and had everything to make our stay very comfortable. Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach towels included. We used the gas grill several times and enjoyed having central air conditioning. The backyard is very secluded and nicely landscaped. We enjoyed relaxing on the screened in deck. It was also convenient that the yard is fenced which provided extra security for our two small dogs that traveled with us. The bed is extremely comfortable and the linens/towels are high end. We truly enjoyed staying at this quaint cottage.

A general store is right around the corner, which is convenient for wine and snacks. Down the Hatch at Earls Marina is close by for a quick bite to eat and live entertainment. We enjoyed riding our bicycles on the Phoenix Trail as well as around the island. Other must see opportunities include historic downtown New Bedford and Fort Phoenix as well as Ned’s Point Lighthouse in Mattapoisett. Two of our favorite restaurants were Elisabeth’s in Fairhaven and The Black Whale in New Bedford.
