Clean and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

John was an excellent host. He greeted us when we arrived and checked in to make sure that all was well. The house had everything we needed to feel at home. The week days were lovely. The weekends were a little more crowded than I expected.

Really enjoyed Captain's Watch cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean and convenient cottage. From our research, probably the best rental cottage on the beach. John was friendly, helpful, and informative in terms of places to go, sites to see. It was a quiet, relaxing visit for us. Our only recommendation is to plan to be in Colonial Beach over the period from Thursday to Sunday as most everything is closed until mid-day on Thursday. This took us by surprise (we arrived on Monday) so next time, we will adjust our travel plans accordingly.

Thoughtful owner, comfortable cottage, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a relaxing time at the cottage. John bent over backwards to help us enjoy our stay. He not only recommended all the best local places, but also went out of his way to get safety covers for the outlets just for my very active and nosy toddler. The porch and deck has a picturesque view of the water which we enjoyed when we weren't on the beach itself. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed to feel at home in Colonial Beach. John thought of everything and was a kind and friendly host.

wow factor = 10!! SUPER QUIET...SUPER COZY...very nicely APPOINTED...Southern hospitality NICE!!

  • 5 of 5

We were there mid-week and the towne was barely awake...we adored the solitude and small towne

charm ....John was a southern gentlemanly host who gave accurate "local's" insights and made sure

that his guests didn't burn on the beach...

Within two hours of our daily digs, we cannot wait for a return visit to the Bahama cottage...
