  • Great house for family vacation

    "We had a perfect week on PI at Days Serene. We were very happy with the house, I will give an honest review because I think that informed owners and guests have the best experience! Pros: LOCATION is great, walk to basin, river beach, and ocean beach. The neighborhood was lively on Friday & Saturday nights but quiet the rest of the week. PETS allowed. Dogs can go to the basin beach and lounge on the porch. there is yard space on the side of the house where we tied our dogs out while we were home, so they could watch the goings on in the neighborhood. Unfortunately previous guests allowed their pups to poop there and did not clean it up - pigs. I did my best to clean it all up. SPACE! So much space. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths plus outdoor shower, large open living/dining room, large porch, lots of parking. COMFORT: Beds were great, comfy couch and chairs, family style dining area, cafe seating in the breakfast area, plenty of hot water, AC is fabulous. AMENITIES: cable TV, wifi, beach chairs, awesome wagon to haul your stuff to the beach. Nice big fridge with cold water dispenser and an ice maker! Full size washer and dryer - don't be afraid to let your kids play in the basin muck at low tide! HOSTS: Dick checked in through messaging & phone and offered to come by the house if we needed anything. I didn't bring king sized sheets, since I misread the description and thought that the master had a queen. Maureen came over to drop off a nice clean set of king sheets. Thanks so much! I will list a couple minor 'cons' for those who might have particular hang-ups! ANTS: Perhaps an unfortunate result of having an older cottage on ground level :( we hid our food in the microwave, fridge, and oven because anything on the counter or in cabinets had ants crawling on it. KITCHEN: the kitchen had all the necessities, except for a dishwasher. so the small amount of counter space was cluttered with our dish rack. Any dishes we took out of the cabinet had to be re-washed before use - I would blame the previous guests not the hosts! We found some not-so-clean plates and silverware. The cabinets are kinda older, countertops not level due to the cottage settling. The oven is located on the other side - not the typical 'work triangle' but at least there is an oven! Who uses an oven in a beach cottage anyway? The kitchen was fine for us, but if you're looking for a gourmet work area you might not be thrilled. Overall great stay, thanks!"

  • Lovely Accommodations and Owners, Outstanding Location

    "Having lived in MA for many, many years and now living in South Carolina, we always enjoy return visits to explore our favorite locations in greater depth. We were looking for a quiet place on/near the ocean to enjoy fall foliage. "On the Cove" met and exceeded our hopes and expectations. The apartment is large and open with loads of light and views from several vantage points. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed preparing quite a few meals to balance our dining out and dining in plan. The bed is super-comfortable and was dressed with high-quality linens. Though it was October and much of the garden had been put to bed, it was very clear that the landscaping has great bones and would no doubt be stunning in spring/summer. The owners were just so lovely and accommodating. We could go on and on. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly for your Cape Ann adventure."

  • Wonderful Cottage!

    "We had a late summer getaway at this cottage. The owners of this cottage are very thoughtful and have considered everything you could possibly need! Bedside flashlights, a sewing kit and first aid supplies to name a few! The linens and towels are plentiful and in good quality. With all that said, the cottage is very clean and not at all cluttered. The open concept is nice for spending time together with family on vacation. Furthermore, the fist level bedroom is great for folks traveling who have some trouble with stairs. Unfortunately, we arrived about the same time the remains of Hermine did so we didn't have the best weather and did not get too much beach time . However, the beach is just a short walk away with access at a few different points. Also, the basin is a short drive to the other side of the island and that is a nice area too explore too."
