Perfect family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Great space and flexibility for a family group. We enjoyed the rooftop deck and proximity to the beach. Thanks so much!

Lovely house, close to but not right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

For some reason, I thought this home was right on the beach. We booked it somewhat last minute so my fault for not understanding that. That aside, our stay was lovely. We enjoyed walking the path to the beach or making the short short drive to Horseneck Beach, running on the path to / by the beach, dining at Back Eddy and more. The house is spotless -- and as is unusual for rentals, the beds were very comfortable. Roof deck and the sunset view from it is lovely. Could not have been easier to settle ourselves in for a quick stay. A great option close to Boston.

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to spend 3 weeks at this beautiful home this past fall. I felt like I was living in a country estate surrounded by private woods yet had the private ocean front property aspect as well. The weather was Indian Summer and we were able to swim in the ocean well into October.

The house itself is unique as a private get away yet easily can host 10 overnight guests with great comfort. We were able to entertain around 30 friends on two different occasions as we travelled to New England for the purpose of visiting old friends. The kitchen on the third floor surrounded by decks is by far the best design I have ever encountered in a vacation rental. All of the equipment is of chef quality including the three wine and beverage refrigerators separate from the main refrigerator. The five burner gas stove was perfect for entertaining and cooking the local seafood.

Aside from the perfect location of the home are some great surrounding attractions. One of our favorite spots to eat at was The Back Eddy. A short 5 minute walk from the house. 10 Cousins has by far the best brick oven pizza around near Westport center and also near an excellent grocery store called Lee's Market. When we weren't catching Tautog and Strippers ( Sea Bass) we were able to get great lobsters from the local lobstermen right off the boats across the harbor.

One can't go wrong with this property for a summer or fall vacation. We will be travelling back from Texas in September to replicate our great time last year.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family came here for some time away just before the school year began for my kids. It was by far the best family time we had spent all year! Everything about this place is perfect--even down to the white crushed-shell driveway! It leads to towering hydrangeas filled with butterflies and humming birds. The house itself is beautiful. The perfectly decorated rooms and the layout of the house made us feel instantly comfortable. The game room on the lower floor and the upper living room have plenty of games available to guests. The bedrooms are spacious and inviting, and the bathrooms are beautifully appointed with plush towels and HUGE showers. There is a laundry room on the lower floor, which I found very convenient because I could just toss used beach towels in the front loader as I walked in from the beach, and had clean ones in no time. And the kitchen, oh, the kitchen! This house ranks at the top for having a huge, open kitchen with expansive counter tops of some really cool stone and topnotch appliances. It has plenty of dishes, pans, mixing bowls, spices, etc.--truly a cook's dream.

Probably my favorite part of the house, though, is the upper deck. It is well equipped with cushioned lounge chairs and a large sectional, but the view is the amazing part! You can see the Atlantic on one side and West Port harbor on the other and the tree tops in between. My favorite part were the tree tops--there I got to see all the song birds flying their elaborate dances in the air. I was at their flying level, and I had never seen all the acrobatics and swoops and free-falls that these little birds perform above the trees. It was fascinating, especially with the backdrop of the vast, blue Atlantic dotted with whitecaps and sailboats!

Even though there are lots of restaurants (one just a stroll away--literally) and wineries and other attractions nearby, we were content to stay at the house and the beach. It had everything we wanted. We spent our hours walking the miles of sandy beach, collecting shells, riding bikes, playing games, and taking in the view.

I highly recommend this vacation house! We will definitely be back again!

Oasis in quiet beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at Dune Our Thing a few times now and I can't say enough how perfect it is every time. The views and house itself is gorgeous, but the management/owners of the property really take care of you to make sure you get everything out of your stay. I would highly recommend this stay for any age really.... If you have kids great, or you're a retired couple looking to get away.... this stay is perfect for all ages! Make sure to check out "boater's beach" around the corner. Ask locals how to get there, it's walking distance and a great quiet little beach not too crowded

Breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here this past summer, and can't say enough about it, especially the views from the very top of this house. Completely breath taking, perfect view of the ocean and gorgeous dunes. Spacious quarters if you're looking to have company over, great for hosting. Just a great get away and so close to the ocean. Just a short walk through the back yard and you are on the beach. Love Westport, and loved my stay here..also so close to the winery and a short walk to the Back Eddy, which was nice.
