Across the street from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and the location is great. Tom , the owner, was easily accessible, responding to any questions immediately. West island is a well kept secret.

Bring big spray however. The gnats were fierce.

Great location, perfect size!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was wonderful, right across from the beach. We could see the sunset from the eating area and living room. The house was well maintained and the set up was perfect our needs. The outdoor shower was a huge plus! We used the grill, as well as the kitchen to cook a few dinners. We also walked to the new general store on West Island for donuts on the weekend and to Earls Marina for lobster rolls. We will definitely be back next year! Thanks for a memorable and relaxing stay!

Outstanding value

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely surprise! Just steps from two beaches, this hidden gem gave us so much more than expected. The home is cozily furnished and provides deceptively plentiful space. It is clean, well-appointed, and probably because of the central air, doesn't have that damp, mildewy, beach house feel. The kitchen is up to date, with sharp knives, good pans, and a level flat cook top that gave us surprising precision (we like to cook). The yard is perfect for grilling (we brought one of those $80 Target 11x11 screen tents to keep the bugs at bay) and the outdoor shower is a treat. We were thrilled with the value, not to mention the convenience and flexibility of being able to rent for a weekend. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Great for families or adult groups looking to relax

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage for just about any group. My adult nephew, niece, myself, and my nephew's toddler son stayed here for a long week-end and it was perfect. The walk-to beach around the corner was great for my grand nephew, and the Direct TV and board games that are provided were terrific ways to spend the evenings. The house is clean and has everything you need to cook if you so desire. I cannot say enough good things about the outdoor shower which in warm weather was a delight. You can watch the sunset from the front porch and walk the neighborhood for a delightful stroll with water views all around. It is just a great place to relax and catch up with family and friends. We would definitely go back.

This charming home is perfect for a family beach vacation. The location was great - (listing description was accurate) , the house was clean and very well kept with all the conveniences of home - Direct TV, Internet, washer/dryer, air conditioning - much more than we expected from a beach rental! The photos and description included with the advertisment accurately show the property and amenities but you have to see the home itself to realize how charming it is. My family stayed here for Fourth of July week and had a great time. The home owner was fantastic to work with; we will definitely look into renting next Fourth of July! Highly recommend this property if you're looking for a family beach vacation. Close to a wealth of historical sites and museums, beautiful beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants, yet far enough away that you still have a quiet, secluded beach vacation. The home can comfortably sleep 6 - 8 people, which was perfect for our needs.
