5/5 Excellent

Beautiful carriage home ready for parents or alumni of the Academy
We were so thankful to find close accommodations for the Coast Guard Academy and, at the same time, have a clean, pleasant, and comfortable experience. Always helpful communications, everything above expectations, and extra touches remind you, “this is the benefit of people to people.” Beautiful views made for a terrific backdrop for my daughter’s video interview and a great sense of privacy even though you know you were somehow near the owners. We enjoyed our stay, all of the amenities showed an owner who put effort into her guest care, and I highly recommend it. Take the advice on the Crab roll, too.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful Retreat by the Sea
Overall, this apartment was a perfect retreat for a couple - beautifully decorated kitchen/living area with high-end appliances and utensils. We bought breakfast and lunch supplies from the local Stop and Shop and brought dinner in from local restaurants each night. Everything we needed to make and serve meals was here. The closeness to the beach and the amazing late Oct weather combined to lure us outside for walks several times every day. Thank you Dawn, you have a wonderful, peaceful retreat.

5/5 Excellent

Overnight stay
Beautiful! The accommodations were great! The host thought of everything to make the stay relaxing. With the private beach across the street it made the stay that much better. I will definitely go back!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely long weekend
The property was accurately described and easy to find. We did not meet the owner in person, but that was fine, as we got all the necessary information before and were able to just unlock our doors and go in and relax. Everything was exactly as described, clean, and beautiful. The small touches were really appreciated. Small snacks were left for us, chocolates, and handy bathroom items. It made such a difference. Really lovely.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy, convenient and clean
The property is well maintained and was a great fit for us to keep an eye on our toddler. The view is beautiful and I miss hearing the ocean already. Our host was friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and thoughtful. We would recommend this property to anyone.
