Beautiful. Truly an escape from work.

  • 5 of 5

Instructions were simple and easy, home absolutely stunning and well stocked (well stocked enough that it compensated for our severe underpacking 😅) back yard was a great view at all times of day. Easy access to the beach and a fun couple of days!

great location, clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Clove Cottage was an excellent location for us. Not too far from town, easy walk to nice beach. Home was quiet and must be well insulated because it stayed nice and toasty. Kitchen well supplied. Very comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay there again.

Only thing to note - no access to washer and dryer, it probably said that in the profile but I had not noted in advance.

False advertisement

Only has 1.5 bath

No ocean view from property. And not a short walk to the beach.

Chair in the living room was broken, owners excuse was he had tried to fix it. Very uncomfortable small couch was the only seating available.

Linens- 100% polyester sheets were on both beds. With stains so Gross.

The entire house smelled of mildew. Including the comforter, unfortunately they have the washer locked up so you can't even try to launder it.

Kitchen was to be expected, minimally stocked.

Next time we will camp.

Comfortable, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed our stay, it was a nice little place not far from the beach. I did try to contact the owner during our first day because we could not find extra towels at first and never received a response so that was disappointing. Overall, nice place to stay.

This home is perfect.

It is comfortable with a open floor plan. The kitchen is easy to cook in and well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils.

Very nice colors and decorations. It feels like home!!! You can relax and enjoy it.

The back yard and the covered porches are perfect.

We barbecued and used the fire pit. The way the yard sits it feels very private.

Best of all our dog was welcome!

Heck yea we're coming back!
