Why Ginny chose Buzzards Bay

My husband and I had bought a summer cottage on Onset Island as newlyweds and fell in love with quaintness of Onset. Being on the island was magical but limited with the year round access. Then along came our twins...great memories! We love to be on or in the water so this is perfect.

What makes this house unique

The waters are calm so perfect for young children, and for kayaking and paddle boarding ( my passion! ). My favorite time of day is the late afternoon....wrapped up in a warm sweatshirt and afghan watching the colors on the water. Usually a chill in the air by that time.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so sad to leave this great house with beautiful views and a perfect location directly on the beach. Each morning we woke up and set up our chairs a few steps from the house. We ended the nights by sitting on the screened in porch. The house is well equipped for staying in and cooking/grilling. Ginny, the owner, was so welcoming and helpful. We love Onset and this house - can't say enough good things about this trip!

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for small children. Water is close with no waves. Home is clean and maintained. This was our 7th year and we are looking forward to next year.

Manager is a phone call away. Seldom needed help but when called they responded promptly. Walking distance to most everything. Quiet neighborhood.

Quiet, private beach, killer views!

  • 5 of 5

Cared for rental property with attentive owners & management company. Walking distance to local restaurants & Onset Village. Short ride to Buzzard's Bay & more amenities. Go from screened porch to deck to the sand. No bridges or rotaries to navigate but they are near by if you desire to head in that direction. We're going back next year!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough great things about our stay and experience with the owners! The home a beautiful contemporary in a location that couldn't be more perfect right on a private beach yet just a short walk to downtown Onset! Immaculately clean and maintained with every amenity one could need or want. We visited with our toddler twins for a week and enjoyed lots of time on the beach, especially renting paddle boards and using the kayaks, baby pool and beach toys provided with the rental. The home is also very well laid out with bedrooms a good distance from the living areas and the most comfortable beds we have ever encountered at a rental! We hope to return again!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your family time! We enjoyed meeting you and your family, and seeing the twins brought us back to when ours were that age when we first bought the house...goes by fast! Hope that you all will return!!

Was everything that we were looking for and then some. Was a joy dealing with the owners and we felt welcomed from the very start. Spectacular views with a clean and comfortable setting. We definitely plan on staying here again.
