Year after year.. a GREAT vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find a few years ago.. I found this house on the VRBO and it was meant as a christmas gift to my family one year. We can't stop coming back year after year now! The owners are SO friendly! The house has everything you need in it for a great vacation! The perfect deck and rocking chairs for cheese and wine in the afternoon after taking in the day at the beach! The den with the glass door is perfect for when the kids wake up early and don't want to wake everyone else up. There is plenty of things to do so close to house; fishing at the coast guard beach, hanging out by the ponds at the property, walking to "Secret Beach", Shellfishing in the Great salt pond! The kitchen is well equipped for when we come home with our fresh caught fish and clams for clam chowder.. but we always save room for smores on the grill! ;-) Best week of the year.. every year! LOVE IT HERE!

And sweet it was!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful week at Sweet's home where we were afforded all the comforts of home. The bright kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. There a was a private outside hot water shower which came in very handy washing off sand after a day at the beach. The setting of this home was lovely. It sat on a little hill, and from the kitchen windows and side porch we could look down on a small well tended vineyard. Also located in the back yard, is a small pond where our kids spent time catching and releasing fish.One of the best features of the home is the large front porch with ocean views and a connecting side porch for eating. We spent hours rocking or sitting and eating on the porches. We will definitely be booking again next year. We did not want to leave.
