About Kirsten Damphier

My father was the swimming instructor on the island for 40 years and my mother was a local exhibited artist. This provided the opportunity for me to spend every summer on this wonderful island. Now a photographer and my husband a songwriter we continue to enjoy it's beauty and serenity.. Whether reading at the beach, biking, a trip to the ocean, enjoying the local theater or eating the local seafood, we continue to enjoy the carefree lifestyle of the island.

Kirsten Damphier purchased this cottage in 2010

Also a lovely house for the off-season

  • 5 of 5

My husband, young son and I spent a wonderful long weekend in this comfortable cottage after Thanksgiving. Cozy, clean and inviting, this cottage was the perfect home base from which to enjoy a more quiet time on the island. The owner was a pleasure to work with - a very easy process.

Lovely Little Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from California for a family member's wedding and had the pleasure of renting this sweet little cottage. It is centrally located on the island and was very easy to navigate. We had a rental car, but it's right around the corner from the Town Hall and several eating places were within walking distance. With 2 good-sized bedrooms, we had plenty of room for my husband and I, along with our 3 kids. The outdoor shower is heavenly, especially after days spent at the beach. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed and the large yard was fun for the kids. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and very prompt in responding to any questions we had. Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a few nights with my husband and two young children. It's a lovely, peaceful retreat...great for a getaway from the city. The home is sweet and very well maintained. The landlord was very helpful and easy to work with. I would stay here again and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone else.
