Why Dianne Powers chose SE Massachusetts & Buzzard's Bay

West Island is a hidden gem! Very much like Cape Cod but no need to sit in bridge traffic to get here!!

Super Week Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week with my 2 daughters 18 and 22. We spent a super nice week. It was very quiet and relaxing. The cottage was very practical, comfortable and clean. The view of the sea from back yard was nice. A repeat again next year. We will also recommend to our friends. The communication with the owners was seamless and we got our questions answered immediately.

Our second time staying

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful quiet location! Very cozy and clean and comfortable. This is our second time staying and though we were here for my husband's work we had a relaxing time. We sleep in numerous beds during the year as we travel...and the best sleep we have had in a month since we left home was here in Fairhaven! Kitchen has everything you could need, washer and dryer is always a plus with traveling with children! There's numerous games and books my boys enjoyed. The internet smart tv didn't have enough bandwidth to view any movies and it ran a bit slow for emails. Overall a we had a great stay!

Amazing place to stay, would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for two nights in December and this place was absolutely adorable! Very modern, spacious, and in a lovely neighborhood. The area is beautiful! The owner was also very helpful with any questions I had before, during, and after my stay. I would definitely book this property again when I am in the area!

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. Very comfortable beds for my family. We enjoyed the very private extremely long beach. Not sure that it wod be so private in the summer months though. Wild rabbits hopped back and forth onto the property and beach, so sweet! Interior was all newly redone. Did have some older appliances, but they operated just fine. No fault of anyone the internet wasnt working properly. They are plenty of childrens books my children enjoyed and even a few toys, a small private yard and even outdoor shower, this was nice. I would stay here again as this was a very nice safe neighborhood, child friendly, and accommodating for small families.

BEST Beach Cottage Ever!~

  • 5 of 5

I took my Mother from Florida to the Cottage for her 75th Birthday present. We have Family in the area and I did not want to stay in a Hotel for 4 nights.

We were already excited about our trip but as we drove into the West Island area our excitement grew, what a Beautifully Quaint Little Island! When we arrived at the cottage we just couldn't believe it!... It was even Cuter than the pictures show and much bigger than we thought it would be!

This Cottage was Absolutely Perfect ... There are 2 Full size Bedrooms plus a Large LOFT area. We didn't need to use the Loft area but it would be Perfect for kids. There is a fold out single bed up there as well as a Blow up Mattress and it overlooks the Living Areas Vaulted Ceiling. The Back bedroom (Queen size bed) opens up to the Back deck with 2 Bar Height chairs (the cushions are in a basket just inside the sliding door) where we watched the Sun set every night right over the Water!

The Kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The Dining Table seats 6 comfortably! We cooked many times at the Cottage and had everything we needed! On Saturday we had a Clam Boil / BBQ, there was even a large "Lobster Pot" and Charcoal Grill for us to use. We invited many of our local Relatives and EVERYONE Loved the Cottage and we had Plenty of room for everyone!

My Mother does not get around too well, there were only a couple of stairs to enter the cottage and the shower was easy entry too! Everything else for us was on one level so it was easy for her to get around!

You can tell the Cottage has had many recent updates, new wood floors / new windows / new Living Room furniture / new paint / new TV / Updated Bathroom / Kitchen Counters / ...etc. Everything was clean and in perfect condition!

The location is very convenient, we were approx 10-15 minutes from a wide selection of Shopping Centers with Groceries / Restaurants / Department Store / etc... and also I95. There is a local type grocery and a couple of restaurants even closer than that!

It was a little cool out for us Floridians to go to the Beach, but I took a stroll there one evening as the Sun was setting! It was Amazingly Beautiful and the access is just across the street from the Cottage. If you had chairs, etc... it would be an easy walk, even with kids!

It Truly felt like a "Home away from Home".. we were VERY sad to leave and we have already started to plan our trip back for her 80th Birthday!~
