Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family weekend with our family of 4. We so enjoyed the beautiful garden and firepit. The screened in porch was so nice to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink.

Cozy and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with four other friends for a fun ladies weekend. The cottage was the perfect size for the five of us. Wonderful location, close to the beach, the Dunes, and a few shops and restaurants. The garden and fire pit were an absolutely wonderful spot to have a fire and cook out! Highly, highly recommend!!!!

A perfect girls weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is small, but the location is perfect for outlet shopping, beach-going, and dining, so we didn't really spend a lot of time there. We really enjoyed the private back yard/garden and sitting by the fire in the evenings. It was the perfect place for our girls weekend; we will definitely consider it again next year.

Everything as promoted or described... lovely and restful!

  • 4 of 5

Especially great for getting away from technology and enjoying a change of pace in lovely surroundings. If you want to use wifi, you will be limited. We had a short stay of only 2 nights, but we thank the hosts so much for accommodating us at the last minute. Would definitely come back for a longer stay when we can and have recommended it and shared links with other family members who we know would enjoy it. The addition of bikes on premises is a nice touch also.
