About the property

One bedroom waterside cottage with additional daybed to sleep a third person

Adorable beach cottage on Sconticut Neck overlooking lush green marshes, Nasketucket Bay and Falmouth. Situated in a small beach community with rights to a (private) association beach only steps away! This one bedroom cottage with an additional small waterside room just big enough for a twin bed sleeps three. The bedroom with a queen sized bed and sliding wood door to the deck, overlooks the sparkling bay with beautiful sunrises to begin a perfect day! Enjoy your morning coffee watching Snowy White Egrets and Blue Heron in the marshes searching for food. One hour south of Boston and one hour west of Cape Cod makes it the perfect location for a day trip! The market, restaurants and shopping are only 10 minutes away along with a fantastic scenic bike path. The cottage has been featured in numerous magazines with it's beachy white and gray decor, hardwood floors, slipcovered furniture, waterside deck, grill and outdoor fireplace. Washer/dryer, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and linens.

About Roberta

Sandy Beach Cottage on Sunrise has been my little dream cottage since 2000 and while I'm away visiting my children on the west coast, I open it up for others to enjoy!

Roberta purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Roberta chose Fairhaven

A peaceful and relaxing location overlooking the marshes and bay toward Falmouth. My favorite part of the day is watching the sunrise from bed over the bay and enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck.

Beautiful view of the water from the deck. Close to a sandy private beach. Street is quiet. Close to shopping and some wonderful restaurants.

Lovely, peaceful spot in Fairhaven close to town and West Island. I'm looking forward to next year!

  • 5 of 5

This neighborhood is quiet. The house is comfortable and well appointed. The deck and backyard overlooks the marsh and the bay; wonderful for birders. The Sandy Beach is one house away and it is just a ten minute drive to West Island Town Beach. I absolutely loved this home away experience.

Beautiful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked our trip with the intent of it being the home base for our immediate family while we were visiting our family in New Bedford. Well it not only became the home base for us but our extended family who wanted to spend time with us too because of the location. This cottage is impeccably decorated. When you think of a beach house this is the perfect depiction of it. The house was incredibly clean and had all the linens you would need as well as a coffee maker and grill. It is probably best suited for a couple or a couple and a small child as it is small. The house next door is pretty run down (currently being worked on) but unless you are walking to the beach you don't see it. The beach is a little muddier than we would have liked but our kids had so much fun swimming to the little island with us and looking for crabs. They are still talking about this trip. It was the perfect size and the perfect location for us. The only think I would change is not letting everyone know we were in town so we could enjoy the peace and quiet. All in all it was the perfect spot for our family.

A Wonderful Getaway Treasure

  • 4 of 5

I had booked this rental with the hopes of having a quiet week to enjoy the coast and re-energize and could not have found a more perfect spot. The cottage was immaculate, bright, and beautifully decorated, just as the photographs showed. Thee was plenty of privacy without the sense of isolation and sunrise views were spectacular. Day trips to the Cape, Nantucket and Newport were easy but at the end of each day, I couldn't wait to get "home" and relax.

Wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was very accurate. There was even spare gas for the grill. The property was clean (9/10). We had excellent customer service. The nearby beach was our main disappointment; it's nice and clean but the water is not much inviting. Otherwise everything was perfect for us: very quiet neighborhood, very nice courtyard (lot of birds and rabbits) and a beautiful view.

There are plenty of activities around. We enjoyed the beaches (Horseback beach and Demarest Lloyd state Park), the historic sites (Fairhaven town museum and his sympathetic guide; Battleship Cove; Providence and Boston). We appreciated many restaurants and the people of the region.
