5/5 Excellent

Easter Weekend Getaway
The property was beautiful, the owners were very kind and helpful, and the location is a quaint, quiet, beautiful bay that is the perfect getaway for relaxation and renewal. They have chairs and a fire pit down by the water that I didn't ever want to leave! :)

5/5 Excellent

Great place, great owners
My wife and I had a lovely time here. We stayed for 2 weeks in March, got pretty lucky with the weather. The suite was extremely well stocked with everything one could need, the bigscreen TV worked fine, so did the fireplace, and the ocean views were amazing. Very friendly and helpful owners. Would stay again for sure.

5/5 Excellent

Great View ... BUT ...
Property very tricky to find. Worth it for the view, however. Dishes dirty, one glass broken, left in the dirty glass cupboard, resulting in a cut finger. Property was extremely well appointed. There was nothing to look for. All dishes, towels, shampoo, soap, tea, coffee, sugar ... everything was there. Overall very lovely little hideaway by the sea.

5/5 Excellent

Great location! Great view! Loved the "Gin & Tonic" deck down by the water.
Very enjoyable stay!

5/5 Excellent

The renting process went smoothly. Property was not difficult to find. The kitchen was well equipped Lots of recreational equipment available. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks. The bottle of wine was an awesome touch and a great way to start our weekend. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience.
