Perfect hidden gem!
Our cottage in the dunes was perfect. Rustic charm with an amazing seculed beach at your footsteps. Whether it was morning coffee in the garden listening to the chatter of the birds or cocktails on the porch watching the glow of the sunset, you are experiencing relaxation at it's best!
A slice of heaven!
Beautiful property extremely well-kept amazing sunsets every day. Fantastic location private and right on the beach. The word amazing keeps coming to mind I can’t say enough about this property and the owners they are amazing and super easy to deal with never been disappointed and hope to come back many times!
Great spot on the Beach
We loved the location of this beach house! I would’ve given this place 5 stars had it been clean when we arrived. When you are being charged a $160.00 cleaning fee, it should be clean! It was dusty, with random hairs everywhere, overall just needed a deep clean. Seemed like the cleaning crew just did a quick job. The most disgusting thing was the half used coffee cup inside the cupboard, with a hair on the rim. I contacted the owner, she made no effort to rectify the situation. This is the first bad review I’ve ever left, it was that dirty.
The dirty coffee cup is yucky, to be sure. However I can't ask the cleaners to check the cleanliness of items inside cabinets. There just isn't time between renters for them to do that.
I will talk with my cleaner about your other concerns and hope to resolve the problem by next season.
The property was very nice and well-appointed. The location was secluded and quite beautiful.
Sunsets were memorable. The decorations and amenities were pleasant. The only problem was that the cable TV was not operational.
Sorry this couple had trouble with the cable TV. As someone over 65, I find modern televisions really confusing - why do they have to be so complicated? In any case, the next guests seem to have no trouble and when my family was there for an event yesterday, one of the younger generation turned the TV on without any problems.
I have given the best instructions I can for the TV in the house book. When this couple called, I tried to troubleshoot to help them, but obviously failed miserably. And I guess the house book didn't help either. I will get my kids to help re-write the instructions in the book to make them more foolproof for next season.
Sunsets to Die for
A lovely Cottage for getting away and just relaxing, Small and intimate, very well appointed and very private. Would stay again and again and again.....
Delightful cottage in a beautiful spot; another wonderful week on the beach!
This was a returned trip for me to the cottage in the dunes. See my previous October 2016 5-star review for details of the cottage. I loved it just as much the second time as I did the first time. The spot couldn't be more private yet close to everything you need including a little market, cafe and ice cream store within walking distance, the bike path, several restaurants a short ride up or down 28A and then of course, Falmouth and Mashpee 10 to 15 minutes away. I honestly barely left the house as I enjoyed the beach and timed cocktails and dinner for the sunsets which are glorious over Buzzards Bay. I just love this cottage in the dunes and look forward to returning next year. Peggy is very easy to work with. If you are looking for a cozy, well equipped, carefree cottage on the beach, private yet accessible to the villages of Falmouth, look no further!
