We all had a great beach experience!

  • 5 of 5

The beach bungalow was great and being able to walk outside and take a walk on the beach or a kayak for a row, very peaceful.

Our first family vacation and we could not have had a more relaxing week.

The bungalow had all the necessary comforts of home and I hope to visit next year.

Great week on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

Cate was great to work with, very responsive. Everything with the home was as described in the posting. We could not believe how empty the beach was. The bay changed from gentle lapping waves, good for kayaking to.boggie boarding waves. The family got to spend a lot of time together without being disturbed. We loved Piglet too!

Stunning and truly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was an absolute dream! I would most definitely go back if I was given the opportunity, the neighbors were funny and marvelous people. But if there was one thing I could fix on the house it would be the door leading into the salmon room, otherwise it was a 10/10 relaxing stay. So many places to go sightseeing, you just had to catch the right temperature to do everything! The private beach was a true paradise being able to go down and read a book with your fellow dolphins, the water was so warm that you could walk right in and never want to get out! Beware the ghost crabs for they could pinch your feet and run away! The fish are very friendly and comfortable with you so much that they swim right up to you.

Most Excellent Vacation with my Family!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cate and Tom,

Reason being I have held off writing a review is purely selfish. I'm afraid that people will read this and book all of the times available so that we can not get in again in the future!

Not sure where to begin but here goes- The pictures of the "Beach Bungalow" are exactly the way it looks in person. Talk about immaculate. We were all very impressed with the details exuding hominess and the cleanliness as well. When they say there is everything there for a worry free vacation they mean it. We loved waking up and making breakfast, lunch and then grilling up dinner. The massive private beach is only a 30 second walk. We were happily surprised that the sand/dunes is literally right outside of the beach door. Doesn't show that in the pics on VRBO. While the beds could use a little upgrading we didn't have much trouble sleeping soundly after spending the day on the beach. We left behind some spices and cooking oils that we brought but felt compelled to leave them for the next lucky vacationers there. Cate and Tom, it was a true pleasure meeting you on our last day as we were packing up to depart. Your warmth and charm in your bungalow is obviously a reflection of yourselves. I would like to make a few suggestions: Applying window treatments in the yellow guest room. The way the sun settles it is sometimes too bright (nap time), and it does get very warm in there. The window treatments on the parlor windows would be perfect in there! Next, being foodies we are used to sharpen knives. Perhaps a knife sharpener? Also perhaps a small household hammer (nails needed to be hammered in on the picnic table next to fire pit). You may also want to check out little hidden wasps nest up in the corner of the eaves downstairs and up. Saw a couple but nothing that we were bothered with. All in all, everyone of us was blown away with your beach bungalow and yes Cate and Tom, we will be back! If there's any availability after this review.... gosh darn it!

Owner's Response: We were so pleased to meet you and thrilled that you love our bungalow the way we do! Love the suggestions and will work them in.... Tom loves room darkening curtains and I'm quite the opposite so we always have a battle on window treatments LOL thanks again and hope to host you again soon!
