About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Comfortable, cozy antique house in good condition, a half a mile from Padanaram village and harbor, in the town of South Dartmouth. Loved and old with the quirkiness of an old house. Access to water from a path, where you can paddle a kayak into Padanaram's perfect natural harbor, out to Buzzard’s Bay.

Master bedroom and sitting room on the first floor as well as a reading room, TV room and dining room. Twin bedroom off the kitchen [complete with an industrial stove]- two bedrooms and play/sitting area upstairs. Very open feel - one room flows into another, in an old house which has been lovingly renovated and added to over the years. 3 working fireplaces, a lot of charm. Gorgeous summer gardens.

Great neighborhood in a New England town, 10 minutes from the ferry to Martha's Vineyard in New Bedford--35 to 40 minutes from Newport, 30 minutes to Providence, and 30 minutes to the Cape Cod canal. True New England feel.

Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover!! Not as advertised at all. Not charming, in good repair, or clean

  • 1 of 5

We never spent one night at this property. When we walked in, it was not charming or in good condition as the ad stated. It had large hunks of peeling paint, rotted and broken windows, water damage, mold, a musty odor, cobwebs, insects (one dead on the master bed), rodent traps in the kitchen and rodent droppings. In addition to the furniture being stained and mildewed, there was hair in the shower, a dirty sock behind a radiator, filthy sponges, a dirty rag in the kitchen sink and a variety of cleaning issues. I could not breathe well in the house. We were extremely disappointed that our vacation was not to be in the area of Dartmouth that we had looked forward to when we planned our trip in April.

Owner's Response: In 11 years of renting our house on VRBO we have never had a complaint. We have had many repeat renters and satisfied people, and pride ourselves in maintaining a clean, welcoming home. This renter seemed to have an agenda the minute she arrived. Our loyal and hard working cleaning person had worked for 8 hours to get the house ready the day before her arrival, and then walked through the house with the renter, tolerating an onslaught of criticisms and complaints. Can't win em all, I guess. Hope she enjoys the money we refunded her. Owners, beware.
