“Beautiful, well-equipped cottage”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2015

Owner was a pleasure to deal with. Cottage was great and had all the necessities. Great for a relaxing vacation. Only negative is the beach that you can walk to easily is very small. Main town beach is about half-mile away- not bad unless your carrying chairs,etc.

Owner's reply: Thanks Henry . So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay .

“Onset Cottage”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2014

Clean, cozy, well kept cottage for beach retreat. 5 minute walk to beach in Onset Bay that is very peaceful. Recently renovated with new floors, bathroom, windows and paint. Will stay again and look forward to returning.

“Adorable cottage and great location”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2013

I stayed at this rental with my mother and 2 young children for a week. First, we were blessed with great weather to walk the block to Onset beach where the kids could swim calm waters & fish. The place is adorable with a hammock and rocking chairs on the porch for relaxing. The place easily sleeps 5-7 folks. The outdoor shower is a godsend for sandy kids. All the amenities incl a gas grill. We know the area so easy jaunts over the Bridge to actual Cape destinations but close to the Walmart and Water Wizz if that's your thing. You will love this place if you're looking for relaxation and good waterway access.

Owner's reply: Thank you for sharing your feedback about our cottage. We used to stay in mid cape before we found out about Onset and the Canal area. We love Onset for many of the same reasons. Now my grandchildren love the area and we hope to share our cottage for many more years to come.

“Beach Vacation”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2012

My family had a wonderful time at your perfect little cottage within walking distance to beautiful onset beach. We stayed for the fireworks and could see them from the front porch on comfortable rocking chairs.The yard is fenced in on 3 sides and has a great oak tree to provide shade. There was also a great ocean breeze. What an enjoyable and restful time. Onset is centrally located to drive to Boston or any attraction on the Cape. I would highly recommend staying here.

“Nice spot...”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

I wanted to get away with the kids without spending a fortune. The owners were pleasant and I found the cottage to be accommodating. 5 minute walk to the beach. A 10 minute walk got us to the Onset Pier and 1/2 shell. I will rent this cottage again....good luck!

What a great place. Had a fantastic time... great way to start the summer. The cottage is so comfortable and cozy. A short walk to the beach and we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation. I was over all too soon but we will be back!
