All Expectations Met

  • 5 of 5

The process was painless and the house met all of our needs. Spotlessly clean, functional and fully maintained. Our security deposit was released the day we left. We would definitely rent this home again if we were to return to the area in the future. West Island is its own little haven and if you are into seafood this fishing Mecca will transport you to heaven. Margaret's in Fairhaven was our favorite with Dnb Burgers and Horta's in New Bedford following closely in its wake. I don't think I will ever order scallops again until I return to this awesome part of the state.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying at this beach house. It is located right on the water, and has a great little backyard overlooking the ocean. The whole bottom level of the house overlooks the water, which made our stay there very relaxing. The town beach is within walking distance, and it was perfect for our children. There are lots of activities to do with kids within a half hour or so driving distance; there is an amusement park, kids museums, and bike trails. Lots of good restaurants nearby as well. Shannon is a great host, she was easy to get a hold of anytime during the week if we had questions or concerns. The house was recently updated, and is very clean. I definitely recommend staying here, we are hoping to book a trip again next year!

Ideal home for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying on West Island in this clean and contemporary home. Shannon is very attentive. The home was immaculate and the necessary updates from last year were done with such high quality standards. We caught a 5 day rain storm, but still had such an enjoyable time watching the wind and waves. The beach down the road is ideal with only the local residents as visitors. The water was warm enough to swim (even in June). I almost didn't want to write this review because I wanted to keep this place for myself! Many thanks to our hostess for opening their home. Bob and Beth A.

Loved Loved Loved this Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so great -- clean, perfect view, great design in the kitchen, etc. We BBQed and enjoyed the fantastic view! We walked to the town beach (which was lovely and unexpected bc we had never to West Island before). We definitely will go back (I came back on the site to book a week this coming summer). The owner was so nice and great about everything, very helpful. Highly recommend it!!!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week (4th July) in the Waterfront Cottage and had the most lovely time. The cottage was perfect in every way. Clean and well looked after, very comfortably furnished and well stocked with all the basics we could need, and more. The location on the water is incredible and the sunsets were amazing. We couldn't believe how quiet the area is, even during the period we were visiting, which was "high" season. The neighbors we met were very friendly and welcoming. Shannon, the owner, was super responsive to the various questions I had before our trip. We felt confident she would have responded very quickly if we had contacted her during the stay (we didn't have to, everything was perfect).

We traveled with our three children under 10 and they loved it too. They have already said they want to return to West Island to the same cottage. They spent hours on end paddling at low tide looking at the hermit crabs and other sea life. I would say the cottage is probably more suited to a family or mellow group looking for a relaxing vacation, a little more away from busy tourist areas. We all hope to return one day!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Shannon's cottage is the ultimate getaway for a quiet, relaxing time watching the ocean life go by!! The recent renovation was done with complete attention to detail and comfort. Clean and modern in feel - everything is at your fingertips and super easy to keep clean and organized.

The best part is the view- whether from the couch or the lovely outdoor furniture- the ocean changes daily and you get a great sunset show from your chair!!

Shannon was extremely attentive and helpful- not that we needed anything- the house is beautifully set up and has anything you would need.

Highly recommend for a relaxing time by the ocean.
