Cottage By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this adorable cottage twice now while visiting family in the area. The location is perfect, cottage very clean and Diane was very helpful and even offered to let me check out whenever I wanted on my last day since no guest was arriving right behind me. Would definitely rent again!

Clean and cozy

  • 3 of 5

Diane was a hands- off unobtrusive hostess, which I appreciate. She did communicate with us in a timely fashion, and was very friendly and available when we needed her.

This little cottage is very clean, and bright. The amenities are sparse, but all your basic needs will be met. Plenty of towels and dishes. It's a great location, very close to the harbor (with restaurants, shops, groceries, etc.), and a glimpse of harbor views between houses. Steps to the lighthouse and beach. Very reasonably priced!

This is a perfectly charming little beach shack if you wanted to come down to the beach for a day or two.

That being said, a longer stay might feel a bit uncomfortable. As several other reviewers have noted, almost all the furniture is rather worn out. We found the bed to be very hard ... okay for a night, (or maybe two,) but if you stay a week, as we did, you may find your back crying.

Small things that were absent that would have been appreciated: A pad of paper and a pen. An alarm clock. A couple of bottles of water and maybe a couple of snacks in the frig to greet weary travelers. (first place I've ever stayed that didn't offer some water and snacks) And any place to sit in the house that would have been directly under a good reading lamp.

We did leave a map of Scituate and several local restaurant flyers behind for the next travelers ... you are welcome!

One thing that really took me aback, and must be mentioned ... we traveled cross-country to get to this place, and after nearly 17 hours of weary traveling, we stumble into the cottage, so exhausted, and so glad we had finally arrived, only to be greeted by a note that told us where the sheets were, and advised us to make our own bed!!! That did not feel very welcoming to us in the least, and that has never occurred to me in ANY other VRBO I have ever stayed in, (and I've stayed at many in all different locales across the country and in Canada)

Owner's Response: I'm shocked by this review: my cottage is the best value in Scituate - I do everything I can to keep my prices affordable. I don't charge a cleaning fee, because I clean it myself, and the furniture is not brand new because the cottage is pet friendly. Most VRBO rentals that I have stayed in don't even provide sheets - you have to bring your own! If you want your bed made and a stocked minibar, go to a hotel. The one and only hotel in Scituate is three times the price.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

My Sister, Dad and I stayed here for the first two nights of our trip. The cottage is located near the end of the spit just short of the lighthouse. You can glimpse the beautiful view between buildings, and it's just steps away. The town is quaint and lovely. The cottage, while simple, was clean and sufficient for our needs. There were a few things that I would mention: The mattress on the single bed in the living room is old, not very comfortable, and could use updating. The Bed in the the hideabed has the usual bar and we couldn't find sheets that fit, but we used a blanket and it was fine. The biggest thing is that there really is no comfortable seating in the living room. The couch is old and ok...but not great. There are wooden chairs around the table. Other than that you had to sit on the bed which is on wheels and rolls away from the wall if you are using it as back support. A nice chair would make this place so much more comfortable! We had a wonderful trip and really enjoyed Scituate!

Small rustic cottage very comfortable was the ideal spot to stay for a family wedding at the yacht club. Owners are awesome people friendly and helpful but not bothersome at all. Thank you!
