Our cottage comes equipped with all of the comforts of home and possibly a few more! This home has 3 bedrooms, beautifully furnished and all the comforts of home. This home features a wrap-around deck on the first floor, and the second floor has a balcony for enjoying fresh evening breezes.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in one of Kathleen’s properties and again, it didn’t disappoint. The house was clean, stocked exactly as described, and tastefully decorated (there’s a fine line on beach decorating!). You seriously can’t beat this property for the price and distance to the beach (2 minute walk!). Kathleen, as always, was so extremely helpful during the booking process and leading all the way up through our stay. I can’t recommend her or this property enough and we will be back!!

LOVED this house!

In town for a family wedding. This was perfect for us. Close to the beach in a quiet neighborhood and close to all of the activities, shopping, and restaurants. So nice and clean and decorated beautifully!
