“awesome cottage”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2016

This whimsical cottage would be absolutely perfect if its right on the water. Even though its not our planned vacation, it fills up the sadness my family felt at those times. My sister inlaw was diagnosed stage4 cancer. The cottage made us feel at home. The decorations inside n out are done with perfection. Cindy the owner, is a very warm and sweet person. I can recommend their place 100% .Hope to see u again! Thanks for your great hospitality.

“Seashore Cottage”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2016

My husband Paul and I had a great 10 days at the cottage. It is so adorable and so comfortable. Everything you could think of is in the cottage. And, by far it is the cleanest rental home we have ever stayed in. We are originally from Braintree, MA and now live in Florida. We have some family in the Onset area. We had our kids for dinner one night and cooked steak on the grill. My sister and her partner came 2 nights for cocktails and appetizers and then we were off to dinner. Fabulous restaurants in the area. Stonebridge Bar and Grill is on the same street as the cottage. Onset Village is a really cute place to walk around. It is within walking distance of the cottage. Lindsey's Restaurant on Cranberry Hgwy. in E. Wareham and The Gateway Tavern also in Wareham. Percy's in Wareham is great for lunch. All had very good food!! We were so lucky to be so close to my sister and our son and his family. Just a 20 minute ride from the cottage. We went to Province Town, Hyannis, Buttonwood Zoo in New Bedford, Plymouth Plantation, Dartmouth Mall for some great sales at Macy's. We just had a wonderful time. For sure we will go back to Seashore Cottage. It is so cute with the retro decorating and the cottage atmosphere. Cindy and Dean are great and gave us a lot of good information. Now back to Florida and on a diet after all that great food. Don't hesitate if you want a great place to stay. Seashore Cottage is the one!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Jane and Paul for that wonderful review! It is especially meaningful to us knowing that you also rented your vacation home in the past and appreciate the importance of cleanliness, comfort and well appointed cottages which make for a stress free vacation! We are so glad our cottage met your expectations and that you were able to relax and enjoy your visit with your family. We hope you will come back to Onset again and that we will meet again! Cindy and Dean

“Beautiful and cozy!”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2015

The cottage was perfectly sized for our family of four and was immaculate. It is obvious the owners put much effort into decorating and thinking of every detail. All you need to bring is your bathing suit, clothes, and your toothbrush - Cindy and Dean have thought of everything else! The town of Onset allows you to skip the typical Cape Cod "bridge" traffic but is still close enough to enjoy most Cape activities with only a short drive. There were plenty of suggestions neatly organized and left in a binder at the cottage so you don't have to wonder, "what should we do today?" Our family had a wonderful trip!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Beth and Mike for all of the kind words about our cottage. We are truly happy to hear that our cottage met all of your needs for your family and that you feel the same way we do about skipping the Cape traffic and starting your vacation without the hassle! We hope you will come back again as you are always welcome! Cindy and Dean

Had a wonderful time visiting the cottage. The décor was amazing and relaxing. The location was perfect for a beach goer like myself. I would return in a heartbeat. Cheryl

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Cheryl. We love hearing that people feel relaxed at our cottage. Let us know when you need to get away again! Cindy & Dean MacIsaac

“perfect week”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2015

We stayed in this perfect cottage for 1 week (we could stayed forever) very very clean , close to everything, we went to Hyannis , Plymouth for the day but it was nice to come to such a clean cottage, the girls went to the beach we went to the maritime, we also liked to have the washer and dryer . It was a perfect week I read one of the books and the girls played games(Tony watched tv) also I thought it was very nice to meet one of the owners (hope to meet the other next time we would recommend this cottage and hope I can use again some day the Rosas

“Great Week”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2015

We stayed in the cottage for 1 week in July and were very pleased with everything about the rental. It was clean, convenient, and charming. Even though it is located on the main road, we didn't find the traffic noise to be a concern, especially with the newer windows and air conditioners running. We appreciated the ability to walk to the beach, which was quiet and calm - no waves or undertow to worry about with our little one. Plenty of good places to eat in the area, but we also took advantage of the grill and cooked our own meals. Would recommend renting bikes from Sailworld in Buzzards Bay and riding down the canal bike path. We took day trips to Hyannis and Chatham, but really enjoyed the calm of being back "home" after a fun day. If you're renting over the July 4th holiday, the fireworks on the beach were great!! Overall a great spot at a great value. Thanks to Cindy and Dean for sharing your home with us!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Jill and Matt for your kind words about our cottage. We are so happy that it met your needs and that you loved Onset Bay too. We love hearing that you had a relaxing and fun vacation and thanks for the Sailworld recommendation for renting bikes to do the Canal Bike Path which is something we want to do sometime! Hope you will come back again...you are always welcome! Cindy and Dean

“Delightful Cottage”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2014

The cottage is exactly as described--delightfully new and clean, with every amenity possible. It is adorably decorated as a beach cottage and very comfortable, and the price was right. We cooked and barbecued quite a bit and were able to find all the pots, pans and utensils we needed. Cindy was very responsive and easy to communicate with, and our deposit was returned immediately. We love the beach in Onset because it is not crowded at all, and parking is reasonably priced. It's very easy to get around town because traffic is light, especially compared to the Cape. Onset is a hidden gem. The only somewhat negative comment I have is not related to the cottage itself. Unfortunately there is road noise on Onset Ave. at certain times of the day and night, but we closed the windows and turned on the AC when necessary, and it was fine. We read for hours on end and slept very well after our beach days! Even the neighbors were nice, and offered to let our son-in-law park on their driveway when he came to visit one day.

Owner's reply: Thank you Ann for your wonderful review! It was our pleasure to have you stay at our cottage. We love to hear positive feedback as we have tried to think of everything that we would like in a rental cottage, so this review is very reassuring. We look forward to your return in the near future! Cindy and Dean

“Family Friendly”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2014

This was the perfect getaway cottage for our family of four. The updates to the house made for a great setting by the water. Cindy and Dean were very welcoming and would we recommend this vacation home.

Owner's reply: Thank you Dan and Rosemary for choosing to stay at our cottage. We are delighted that you enjoyed yourselves and hope you will return again next year! Cindy and Dean MacIsaac

“Great Place for a Getaway”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2014

This cottage was a gem. We have never done a vacation rental, and this was a wonderful experience that we would recommend to anyone. Our two young sons loved that there was a yard for them to play in. The cottage was decorated in a pretty beach theme, and it was so homey and comfortable. It was immaculately clean, and well stocked with everything you could want or need. It was obvious the owner's of the home spent a lot of time on the details and to provide an atmosphere for relaxation. We were within walking distance to Onset Bay and a cute downtown thoroughfare. The home is also within driving distance to a variety of great family destinations and public ocean beaches. Thank you Cindy and Dean for sharing your cottage with us and providing a home away from home for our family vacation!

Owner's reply: We are so happy to hear that you had such a good time especially for your first time renting! It is because we have had many different experiences renting other cottages over the years that we are so tuned in to what amenities can mean so much to our guests. We appreciate the kind words and confirmation that we are on the right track! Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to being your home away from home again!! Cindy and Dean MacIsaac
