Reviewed 8 Sep 2016

Wanted this year's vacation place to be "on the beach" and not a house with an "ocean view or "just minutes away from the beach".. This home was perfect and definitely THE spot! Loved everything! Only sorry we didn't stay for 2 weeks!

Owner's reply: Thank you Kay!! So glad you had a great vacation:)

“Perfect beach home!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

This was a very last minute rental for us and Sharon was extremely accommodating to help make this happen. The home has beautiful ocean views and is kept very clean and neat. A great get away with very helpful and nice owners as well! We would definitely rent again!

Owner's reply: Thank you Kim. I'm glad we were able to make it all work out:) Sharon

“Dream Cottage”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2015

This cottage is very charming, well cared for and in an ideal location. It is literally steps off the porch to the beach. Sharon was very accommodating and greeted us personally to introduce us to her cottage. I have no complaints... I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's reply: Thank you, Michelle, for your nice comments and for taking great care of our cottage. I am so glad you had such a great week with your family! Looking forward to seeing you next year😃. Sharon

“Wonderful stay”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2013

We found this home to be everything the pictures and owner said (other properties weren't). It was a comfortable home and was very peaceful. We too, went when the crowds had left. The fire pit was a bonus. The porch was wonderful for watching falling stars and the waves coming in. We went beachcombing and found sand dollars and some ocean glass...loved watching the little hermit crabs down the beach, near the rocks. Being able to wade in the water was an extra bonus as the weather was wonderful. Thank you Sharon, for sharing your cottage with us! Lauren & Jennifer

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Lauren!! I was happy to hear that you and your daughter had a nice vacation. You are welcome back anytime:) Sharon

“Great Vacation spot”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

We stayed at this cottage in Sept when the crowds were long gone which was wonderful. The cottage is small but well appointed and very clean. It even had a firepit which we used every night. It was nice to have the windows open and hear the waves every night through the windows. Since we flew from Chicago it was a bit of a hassle to bring our own sheets and towels but if one was driving it shouldn't be much of a problem. All of the small towns are very quaint and grocery is nearby. I would certainly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a beach rental.

Owner's reply: Hi Mary, So glad you enjoyed your time in Maine:) Thank you for taking care of our cottage. Would love to have you come again some day. Sharon

“Ideal Oceanfront Family Getaway”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

This property offers an ideal oceanfront experience. Close to the ocean yet nestled far enough from the surf to give the occupant privacy. The home is nicely furnished and not far from a friendly beach community where you can buy coffee, ice cream and kites. The owners are also very warm and accommodating. Would be 5 stars but for the proximity of the house to neighbors whom, if noisy, can keep you from getting a good night sleep.

Owner's reply: Thanks Jim...glad you enjoyed staying at our cottage:) Sharon

“Charming, laid back vibe”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

The cottage is exactly as described. It was a perfect fit for our family of 5 (3 children ages 10, 12, and 15). The view to the ocean is spectacular. The water was a bit murky on our stay, but I think it had to do with the weather. Sue, the owner, is super helpful as we ran into car trouble and she knew just the man to fix our car. The kitchen, bar area overlooking the living room made the perfect spot for quick family meals. The backyard has a grill and lines for drying laundry. There are many quick day trips that make the location ideal. Very neat and clean home with all of the necessities for a family looking to relax. It is pared down from our modern life with no distractions. We never turned on the TV, instead reading and playing games. Loved the home.

Owner's reply: Hi Sheila, This is not a review of our cottage...not sure how your review made it to my listing, but sounds like you had a great time!

“Wonderful!!”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2012

This was the best vacation spot we have enjoyed in many years! The cottage was exceptional and the owners are fantastic! We hope to go there for many years to come!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much to the Abbruzzese family for this wonderful review. As much as you appreciated the cleanliness and location of our cottage, we too appreciated how clean you left it and are thrilled that you had such a nice time!! We look forward to seeing you next September:)
