Thea is different from all other rentals we have known. When you are there it feels like you are the luckiest people in the world to know the folks who own this place and call it their home. It feels like your home, too, as everything you could want to relax in comfort is there. At the same time, it takes you far away from your usual world, as Thea is perched on a tiny island at the edge of the sea! How fabulous to see ithe ocean all around you, all the time, out of every window, and to hear it lull you to sleep at night. We have been especially appreciative of the detailed guidebooks the owner's provde to answer every question you may have about the house and the many attractions in the vicinity. Every time we go back, the owners have added amenities and renovations - this time, WiFi and cable access for computers, new gas heating system, and an additional patio on the front so you can enjoy contemplating the sea from yet another direction! We've had great dinners with friends around the big table and quiet days of solitude, tourist days up and down the coast and quiet nights by the fireplace; canoeing around the islands and walking around the point. The creativity Flying Point Island inspires has been awesome: we write, we play instruments, we take photographs; we laugh, we sing, we dance. Bliss.
We have just spent a wonderful week at Captain's Cottage celebrating our 5oth Anniversary with our family, which included 6 adults and 4 grandchildren ages 7-16.The house is warm and inviting with lots of interesting art and antiques to look at.Eveyone from age 7 to 73 found a book to read from your extensive collection.The downstairs game room was a perfect diversion for teenagers during the adult cocktail hour. The eating facilities were very good with room on the kitchen island to do a buffet for a casual meal.The 3 mile and 4 mile connecting running /bike routes from the house was great for our exercise enthusiasts.Although the water was too cold for swimming, the dock was a great place to relax and try our luck at fishing. Dusk kayak trips were beautiful and we saw quite a few seals. We practically lived on the screened deck enjoying the view at all hours. Marianne was helpful with information and so pleasant. It was a wonderful vacation and the cottage was absolutely perfect. I would enthusiastically recommend Captain's Cottage to anyone.
