The property was easy to find, access and we loved having the fire pit.

  • 3 of 5

Our group had a great time staying here, it was conveniently close to the beach and everything else be might need to go to. We were super appreciative of the air conditioning and the fire pit.

The one issue I had is that there were a few concerns when we first got there and I messaged the homeowner 3 times in both text message and on the homeaway site and still to this moment they have not responded to me. I feel as though if you have people paying to stay in your home they should be able to get in touch with you.

The listing stated it sleeps 6, but there are only beds enough for 4. We eventually found an air mattress but no mention of that was in the listing and no one ever reached out to me to answer my question when I asked about it.

The stay was great, but the owners need to be more reachable.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The listing does mention bedroom 1 has a queen bed and bedroom 2 has a bunk bed. Good point though and I have updated the listing to mention we provide a queen sized air mattress for the living room.

Adorable, cozy cottage near everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this quiet, cozy cottage close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and everything you need! The chickens on the property were an extra perk for fresh eggs and entertainment for our two year old! We hope to return again soon!

Great cottage tucked away, perfect for small groups.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cute and clean, on a fairly private lot with a nice yard, close enough to the beaches. For the more than doubled holiday weekend rate I would expect some charcoal available for the grill, wood for the fire or bathroom amenities. There is air conditioning but the windows are sealed very poorly so bugs can get in. Bunks are definitely only useful for kids, though a mattress pad or a sleeping bag could help an adult sleep on the bunk beds as the mattresses are thin and hard. If these small issues were corrected it would be a 5 star rental cottage. All in all a good location.

Perfect... clean, charming, and budget friendly

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, and plan to come back next year. Our brief vacation was very relaxing - exactly what we were hoping for. The house was just the right size for our family, it was clean, safe, quiet, and close to the beach. The rate was unbeatable for what we experienced. The lawn was long when we arrived during the evening, but we were happy to find it was freshly mowed the next morning. The beach pass was super convenient, and the beach was clean and comfortable. It was so nice that we went back every day we were there! We didn't bring our dog, but will consider it next time - a pet friendly cottage is hard to find. The owners ask that you take your dog outside on a leash due to the free range chickens roaming around - a perfectly reasonable request. The owners provided wifi and the house was well equipped. We did notice the cottage seemed a bit damp when the windows were closed, and we but the dampness didn't bother us during our brief stay. We kept the windows open all day, and the fresh air breezes were lovely. Overall, we were very happy with our stay, and hope to make this an annual trip!

Exactly what I was looking for. It was a beautiful cottage with a lovely yard. Perfect! A pass to a beautiful beach and near everything you could need. Quiet area. Pretty Westerly. A short car ride to all.
