Right in the zone.....

  • 5 of 5

......of everything peaceful, serene and perfect. This is a little slice of heaven, with endless views outside, hosts who make your stay memorable with little touches of delightful hospitality, and interior charms like a spiral staircase, color-drenched art, eclectic and comfortable furnishings, vintage and modern touches all combined to create an oasis for the senses. This home is close to everything but if you sit and let yourself feel the pull of its magic, you won't want to leave. It's in the angles of each room, the slant of the sunlight, the placement of furniture and abundance of books, cozy corners to curl up in and read, bluetooth music player if you want that, silence if you prefer, the hot tub just outside the door and did I mention those views...add in a superb massage by Suzan, and there is nothing else you could want. Charles and Lisa are the perfect hosts and we can't wait to return!

Wonderful home and owners but needs a good cleaning.

  • 4 of 5

The house works perfectly for two couples because there is loads of privacy. 2 bedrooms and a second kitchen are on the bottom floor, the living area and kitchen are on the 2nd floor, and by far the nicest bedroom is on the top floor. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.The house was well stocked with spices, paper towel, trash bags etc so we didn’t have to go buy those things which you so often have to with weekly rentals.. The owners even left some beach toys for our toddler. They also were accessible with any questions and had a wonderful book they created that talked about all the great things to do and eat in the area. As mentioned in the review the one issue was it needs a good deep clean. The floors were dirty(no trash or anything) but your feet were brown after walking on them. Also the downstairs bedroom seemed to either have dust or mold which needs to be addressed. Almost every night I woke up coughing which never happens to me. Also my father put a sweater in one of the dressers in the upstairs bedroom, and it smelled horrible after he took it out so a suggestion would be to check the drawers of the dressers before you put anything in it. Other than those negatives we had a great time. Everything worked well and the home has wonderful views. It is also convenient to the Logan airport. A large but crowded beach(we were there 4th of July week)is about a 10 minute walk away. There is a road in the front of the house that has a good amount of traffic(maybe one car every 25 seconds during peak times) but it didn’t bother us at all. To summarize, wonderful home and owners, but needs a good deep clean.

Owner's Response: Oliver, We take great pride in providing a sparkling clean home to our guests. If you were not satisfied with the cleanliness of the home, it was not indicated in any of the (4) texts you sent during your stay; in fact this was your first text: "House is perfect and thanks for all the goodies. Really lovely". - We wish you all the best

Wonderful, relaxing stay with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

It was a great week. The views are gorgeous, room very clean and well decorated. Front porch gets afternoon shade for breathtaking views of the ocean. Kitchen is well stocked with anything you need, as far as cookware, pots, pans, serving pieces, utensils, etc. Owners are super quick to respond to any question or request. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great space, plenty of room, well maintained, clean, and with the best views of the ocean. The Happy birthday banner left for our girls was so thoughtful. Our only regret is that we weren’t able to stay longer.

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Sleep with the sound of surf pounding and enjoy the gentle sea breeze. Walk each morning along the never ending beach. You're a 12 min. drive from beautiful Portsmouth and near gorgeous ponds, a state park and a golf course not too far away either. Great location, beautiful accommodations. We're talking luxury here. Lots of room. There's a reason its called The Solstice! Make sure you try the fried clams at Petey's! ( a 2 min. drive along Ocean Boulevard)
