On Ocean Cove - New Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 bedroom cottage with loft on cove at end of private lane. A true get-away!

NOTE: We'll open the calendar for summer 2018 reservations in mid-February.

Rejoice and rejuvenate in this tiny slice of paradise. This newly-constructed cottage (built in 2011) is situated at the end of a private lane, directly on a cove. From the old stone wall in front, it’s literally a stone’s throw to the ocean. To the right of where your stone lands is a rocky shoreline (fishing!), to the left is a pebbly beach (swimming!), and within hiking distance around the points on both sides (beach combing!) are large sandy beaches (sand castles!). A small stream flows into the cove. Less than two miles by road from South Shore Beach.

The cottage has one bedroom, living/dining room with futon sleep couch, galley kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, one full bathroom (shower), an outside shower, an unfurnished loft that can sleep three, screened porch, and gas grill. We are your neighbors and appreciate reasonably quiet renters.

Come listen to the ocean, admire the stars, walk along the shore, read a novel and feel the wind. The way vacation used to be.

PLEASE NOTE: In June, July and August we rent only by the week. In May, September and October we'll consider 4 to 6 night rentals on a case-by-case basis.

BEFORE BOOKING ONLINE: please contact us by clicking on the small “Contact Owner” link (BELOW the yellow highlighted box); we’ll set your priority for your dates based on that message. To ensure a good match, we like to talk by phone to all prospective renters. If you book online first, we’ll contact you quickly but may not be able to arrange a time to talk before VRBO generates an automatic denial (in 24 hours); should the happen, we will re-invite you after we’ve had a chance chat, but it’s easier if you don’t book online until then.

About Doug and Lisa Levey

Cottage built in 2011 on the site of our great great great uncle's fishing shack, near our grandmother's house. We grew up spending most of each summer enjoying this wonderful piece of shoreline.

A break from everything

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is really located right on the water and views are out of this world. I never saw a sunrise before this stay, and it was so beautiful I'll never forget it! This isn't an average old cottage it's modernized with everything you could want. The owners are responsive and helpful. Our only small negative is the size and comfort of the bed. Which we were prepared for after reading another review. It's definitely full size at most which is hard for 2 adults. Plus we're not fans of it's firm mattress. Some may love that though. If you want a place to escape it all this is it! The screened porch was where we spent most of our time. Also a plus it's dog friendly! You won't regret this one book now! We're so sad we had to leave.

Seaside Serenity!

  • 5 of 5

The Maus Haus cottage is charming, and had everything we needed, for our visit. Thank you, Doug and Lisa, for sharing this special place. We enjoyed our week of peace and quiet, and look forward to visiting, again!

Lovely Little Compton

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to get away from it all! Being by the ocean--the sight of it, the sound of crashing waves and seagulls, the smell of salt air--was like heaven. The cottage was lovely, clean, and comfortable. I can't wait to go back!

In front of house or South Shore (public beach)
Car: recommended

* Enjoy long beach walks on South Shore and Goosewing beaches: hike around the rocky point to the left or drive to South Shore public access. Goosewing is managed by the Nature Conservancy. In where-to-go-and-what-to-do, pvsbond writes: 'one of the most beautiful, peaceful and unspoiled spots in all of Rhode Island. The beach is managed by The Nature Conservancy, which safeguards it from development. The wide, half-moon, sandy beach is backed by marshland, rolling green fields and a salt pond that's great for exploring.'

* Hike around the rocky point to the right and discover another vast expanse of sand at Briggs Beach (road access is private).

* Historic Little Compton Commons features the Art Cafe (excellent coffee, pastries, art), Wilbur's store (groceries to hardware...'if they don't have it, you don't need it'), the Commons Lunch (serves breakfast, lunch and dinner), Brownell Public Library, the Community Center, a wonderful kids playground, A1 Pizza, liquor store, gas, post office, and the old cemetery where you can find many an old stone and interesting story, including the stone of Elizabeth Pabodie, said to be the first child of the Mayflower (the eldest daughter of John Alden and Priscilla).

* Many farm stands with delicious native corn and vegetables.

* The Little Compton Historical Society's Wilbur house Museum is open to the public; they also offer walking tours of Sakonnet point several times a summer.

* Watch the commercial fishing boats come in at nearby Sakonnet Point and buy your choice right off the sorting line there. Or pick up fresh lobster. Then hike out on the long stone breakwater or observe the lighthouse and islands.

* Crowthers restaurant is four miles to the East. Another three miles takes you to historic Adamsville, home of the Rhode Island Red (chicken); three more miles to Lee's Supermarket in Westport.

* The best home made ice cream in the region is Grays, nine miles up the road at Tiverton Four Corners, where you'll also find fine art, antiques, and craft shops.

* Kayak rentals are available at Osprey Sea Kayak Adventures (at the head of the Westport river, about 12 miles from Little Compton).


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $400
Cleaning/pet deposit $100
Tax Rate 8.0%

The cleaning/pet deposit is fully refundable. The cottage will be professionally cleaned. Our intention is for renters who leave cottage in good condition to not be charged. We used to have a separate and refundable $100 pet deposit for our guests with pets but decided to reduce the number and total expense of deposits by combining the cleaning and pet deposits. We also reduced the refundable security deposit to $400.
