Much bigger than it looks & VERY clean

  • 4 of 5

We spent a low-key week at this lovely little cottage and were delighted with its space and cleanliness. The pictures don't show the full space available - It's much bigger than it looks. With two huge decks, a screened in porch and plenty of room in the four bedrooms, this is a wonderful property! While it is older, like many of the cottages in Sylvan Beach, this one has been well-maintained with new appliances and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. There was every convenience you could want (WI-FI, cable, window air conditioning).and although we didn't have young children, the cottage was also equipped with lots of games, crayons and kids books for indoor fun.

There is a small sandy beach just a short walk down the little lane which was fun to visit in the mornings and evenings. Unfortunately during our stay, there was a great deal of rain and the water was very high and unsettled. Instead of trying to swim in this area, we took an easy walk down to the public beach when we wanted to swim. (Which is very clean and easy to get to!) If we'd tried the area near the cottage, I would have easily given this cottage five (5) stars!

Mary, the owner, was extremely helpful and it was easy to tell she cared about the cottage and who rented from her -- something we appreciated! If you're looking for a place to have a loud get-together/ party...this cottage isn't for you. But if you're looking for a property that's clean, smoke-free and close to everything in Sylvan Beach - then this might be the one for you!

We definitely enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!
