Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is perfect for 5 people and could fit another on the couch. It has all that you need and is a reasonably close walk to the beach. We actually liked this beach better than some others because there isn't a super long walk out to the water and there is a lifeguard. If you're ok without having a pool it's a great house. Also walking distance from some restaurants

Perfect for a family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Our family could ride our bikes to the beach in less than a minute. The space inside the house was perfect for our family. We were able to extend our stay which was a big bonus. The home had everything we needed. It stated that it came with a grill- we did not have a grill. But we were within 15 minutes of all the best places in the area and walking distance to several restaurants and fish markets. We will definitely be back.

Over the Rainbow

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, only 4 short blocks from the beach. I was there with my daughter and 3 grandchildren. Home was a perfect design. We were all very comfortable. Large enough we did not feel like we were on top of each other. I did not like that the laundry room was downstairs in another building. Not convenient when you are rinsing bathin suits and towels for three kids. Loved working with the staff at Rivard Rentals so polite and so helpful with every detail. I will rent from them again.

Owner's Response: Casey, thank you for your review and for your kind words about our staff. We are happy to hear that Over the Rainbow provided a great home for your summer vacation. Its proximity to the beach is definitely a great highlight. We are sorry you found that the laundry room being separate was as an inconvenience to you during your stay, but hope the comfortable layout of the main house made up for it. Again, thank you for your feeback and we look forward to hopefully seeing you again next year!
