5/5 Excellent

Stayed 4 nights in Sep 2018

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The location is pretty, though if you have any trouble walking the access to the beach is quite rocky. I was glad we didn't bring Grandma this time. The house is decorated well, but it seems like work was initially put in but then the home was not maintained. It was dirty. Cobwebs and hair everywhere (ewwww). There is no television in an area where many can watch it, which is strange because they only need to flip the table and couch to put one on the wall in the front room. The person never did come by to look at things. The name left in the house gained no response at all.

Wonderful Guest Cottage for Storm Watching
Though the weather was a bit frightful, the stay was delightful...watching the waves in a storm was exciting. Fireplace added a nice touch to take off the chill. Delightful stay! Will be coming back again.

Beautiful Home
Highly recommended! Rental company was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. Will definitely refer to friends looking to stay in the area.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A nice place to stay by the coast.
This is a cozy cottage. Beach access is limited on foot but it's only a short drive to the nearest beach park where the access is easy. The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable, and the overall ambience is very nice. A friend of mine and I stayed there to celebrate our birthdays so two bedrooms worked well. I'm glad they accept pets so my little dog could come along. All in all the experience was very good.
