  • Cottage on Cape Cod Bay

    "We enjoyed our stay in this nice clean cottage, the time passed too quickly. Supplying sheets, towels, paper products and kitchen essentials was a bonus. The view was awesome, the cottage itself was cozy and we had plenty of space when my mother and brother joined us for the weekend. We were conveniently located for touring in Boston, Scituate, Plymouth and various places on Cape Cod. Our favorite restaurant was The Mill Wharf in Scituate. Lisa was very responsive in all communication. Because Lisa asked, our suggestion for improvement would be to replace the couch in the TV room. Again, thank you Lisa for sharing your cottage!"

  • Perfect family vacation home!

    "This home and location could not have been more perfect for our annual family vacation. The owner, Dean, was very kind and helpful - we enjoyed meeting and talking with him. There were 12-14 of us there at any time (mostly adults as well as junior high age children) and there was plenty of room for all of us. The open concept first floor let us all be together for meal prep and evening activities. The kitchen was the best stocked with dishes, appliances, and spices that we've seen in 10 years of renting places. The house is right on a beautiful private beach and a first floor deck had enough seating for us to eat outside together and enjoy the ocean each dinner. We were all able to choose our favorite spots during the day including the deck, on the beach in chairs, or floating in the ocean on boogie boards and all be together since the home is right on the beach. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets from either the first or third floor decks were magical. Scituate is a lovely, quite town with a larger grocery store very close by. The "guys" went deep sea fishing leaving from town ( minutes away) and caught some cod for dinner and the captain gave us a bonus lobster! We went for treasured daily walks and runs on the beach. Even the neighboring public beach is for town residents only and is quiet. This is really a perfect home and location for relaxing and fun-filled family time together!"

  • Overall a Great Place to Stay

    "Owners were very responsive: the microwave stopped functioning while we were there and one of the owners brought a new one the next day after confirming we didn't require it that night. There is a deck on the front of the house that overlooks the sound with no block in the view and a deck on the back of the house that overlooks the beach with no block in view. The staircases to both are sturdy with about 10 steps each. The front deck had the grill, which worked fine. The beach was covered in stones. They were smooth, but made flipflops of water shoes necessary. A 10-15 minute walk to where the river and ocean meet bring you to a much less rocky beach which was great for our 13 month old to play at. But with a little raking and you can make a tidy sand pit: the stones only seem to be about one layer deep before you find sand. The main level of the house is one long great room, the division of the room only made by the couches, which were dated and a worn but comfortable. There is a TV in the living room. Then there are 2 bedrooms, both with AC, with a bathroom inbetween. One room has a full sized bed with a closet full of childrens (and baby-appropriate) toys and board games and a tv. The other is 2 twins. The staircase upstairs is in the room with the twin beds. This wasn't too inconvenient for us. Upstairs is a large bathroom, 1 room with 2 twins, closet, dresser, a balcony that overlooks ocean, and 1 room with a king, large closet (fit 2 pack and plays), ac unit, dresser with tv, a balcony that overlooks the sound. All 3 rooms have skylights. The house was VERY liveable, but needs some TLC. The kitchen is quite the hodgepodge of tools, but everything we needed was there. The location was great. It was about a 45 minute drive into the city to the aquarium, 20 minutes to the grocery store, 25 minutes to a place with a target, walmart, etc. The mileage from point a to point b in the area doesn't reflect the travel time well: most of the roads are curvey and go through neighborhoods with the speed limit varying between 25 and 35 mph. We mostly spent our time at the house. We took 1 trip to the city and 1 trip to Plymoth for whale watching, which was prolific in whale sightings! There was 1 unseasonably hot day at 90 degrees, the day we arrived, but beyond that we had very little need of the ac units and enjoyed the ocean breese until our departure on June 5. 7 and a baby occupied the house very comfortably. We would be happy to return"

  • **PERFECT** Family Getaway!

    "Be prepared for a lengthy review. I can’t say enough good things! This house was perfect for our family. Our teenager and 5 year old boy both loved it! The layout was spread out, so we never felt crowded. The house was clean and nicely decorated, and the beds were super comfy. There was good attention to detail (something as simple as labels on light switches!) to make the stay easy and intuitive for those not familiar with the house. We spent a lot of time outside. Lovely backyard! We kept commenting on how secluded it was, which seems to be a rarity on the densely settled island. Trees and lush vegetation border along the edge of the yard between the neighbor’s house -- you couldn’t even tell there was a house over there. We could catch a glimpse of the ocean from the backyard too, which was nice. There is a great little fire pit that we used several times during our stay, and a charcoal style BBQ, (which the meat-eaters in my family preferred over our gas grill at home). There was some road traffic, not too bad. We would help our son practice riding his bike every day, up and down the street. The walk to the beach was a little longer than 5 minutes; biking it was a breeze. But really, this location is very convenient to the town beach. The beach itself was perfect for our 5 year old. Clean, clear water! Small waves. The beach was clean, but people should understand it is a natural sandy beach, complete with seaweed, stones and shells. Quite nice. West Island is purely residential, and you will not find anything but houses, beaches and salt marsh on the island itself, which we like. Our family likes to Geocache, and there are several hidden right on the island! Within 15 minutes you are in New Bedford, which has an amazing historical district, it’s actually a National Park. We visited the Whaling Museum here, which is worth the trip! From New Bedford, we also took the ferry to Martha’s Vinyard for a day trip. The New Bedford historical district in and of itself would serve for a great day trip. With its old houses and narrow cobblestoned streets, it’s a great area for walking around, browsing the small shops and grabbing something to eat. Lastly, the icing on the cake was the owner, Laurie. Her communication was great! She was friendly and easy-going, and very attentive whenever we had a question. We took a vote on our last day, and it was unanimous – everyone agreed we would stay here again on our next beach vacation!"
