"Just returned from my time at this lovely cottage.
The occasion was my 60th birthday and I couldn't have chosen a better way to spend it.
As a recent widow, I was looking for some peace, tranquility and time for reflection by the ocean.
What first attracted me to this particular home was that it was pet friendly. My dogs are my children and it's not a vacation without them. The house is perfect for those who travel with their canine counterparts. The four bedrooms are carpeted, but can be closed off. The living/kitchen/dining area are all tiled and easy to clean. I brought my own throw covers for the furniture, but there are enough in the house to protect the furniture in case your Fidos accidentally jump up on something they shouldn't. There's an outside shower and hose to clean off sandy paws and two upper and one lower deck they can dry out on before coming back into the house.
Being off season, the beach, especially at " the quiet end" was practically deserted. As many previous renters mentioned, this was an added draw for me. In addition to that, the house in not sandwiched in between another row of dwellings, as most here are.
On the ocean side there are houses immediately in front, but on the other there is a view of the marshes and natural area. The deer, as others have mentioned, do come out every night to graze. It was an added pleasure to watch them each evening at sunset.
Again, being off season, most of the restaurants nearby offer limited service. Not a problem for me, since my family and I prefer to cook at home. There are gourmet and grocery stores close by and the kitchen is more than amply equipped. There is an outside grill as well, should you need one. We didn't, but it was a nice option.
A word about the owners. Christine was incredible. This was a last minute booking and she responded to me within hours of my inquiry. In less than two days we had a contract. Thanks also to Steve, who was there to meet and greet and help us get settled.
Unfortunately, I had to cut my time short due to weather and power outages, but I'll be back to this very sweet, peaceful place. That's the best recommendation I can give."
