"This beautifully efficient and comfortable cottage is situated within steps of the high tide mark. Having been fortunate enough to have stayed here numerous times throughout the years, I have experienced the broad spectrum of its ever-changing nature. Each part of the spring/summer/fall season brings with it certain visual, auditory and sensory delights. One needs to work with nature and be ready to apply sunscreen lotion and, at times, mosquito repellent… which are thoughtfully provided.
From the balcony on the top floor of the cottage, one feels as though one is on the deck of an ocean liner. The incoming tide produces a delightful sound, while the outgoing tide enables one to explore the vastness of the ocean floor. The smell of the sweetgrass is intensified by the full sun while the tidal pools to one side of the property fill to overflowing with the incoming tide… particularly during full moons and downpours.
The well-equipped kitchen with its scenic sitting area is on the top floor, along with a half-bathroom. The two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed are on the entry-level floor, along with a full bathroom which houses a washer-dryer unit. There are plenty of accouterments in the bathroom cabinets, should one have forgotten important items at home. In the hallway linen closet, there are plenty of clean, fluffy bath towels, and in each bedroom closet, one can find extra pillows and blankets. The cottage is most thoughtfully zoned for temperature control at the turn of a knob.
A stay here, be it long or short, leaves one with a sense of well-being and peace. I eagerly look forward to many more visits here and many more delightful experiences at this Magical Kingdom by the Sea.
