About Daniel Ristuccia
I grew up in Massachusetts, and I have spent every summer of my life in the home next door to North Point. My wife and I have three grown children who have spent every summer of their life on West Island as well. A few years ago our next door neighbor of 40 years sold us his summer home, and we are now excited to offer for rent this great 3 season cottage. I am a Massachusetts licensed real estate sales person.
Daniel Ristuccia purchased this Cottage in 2010

Cozy cottage with a fabulous view of the water. Nicest landlords you could ask for! We have already booked our stay for next summer. 😋�
Breathtaking view and cozy cottage
We absolutely loved Dan and Donna's little cottage overlooking the bay. We rented it for my parents and they said it was the best vacation they've ever had. They lounges on the deck watching the boats and the birds. Everyone that came to visit felt instantly relaxed. We highly recommend this beautiful spot and the wonderful hospitality from our hosts...especially little Murphy the mayor of West Island!
Outstanding vacation week
Just the right spot for a relaxing vacation
We had a great time!
Fun time, great views, good food in area, sweet owners.

West Island is located about 5 miles off the coast of Fairhaven. Access is via a causeway, so all of the conveniences of the mainland are just a short 10 minute ride. An added bonus is no cape cod traffic!
Driving down Sconticut Neck to Causeway road, you will notice the hectic world slowly disappear . West Island is a small, mostly summer community with a laid back feeling. Although this is mostly a summer community, many residents feel the best time of year is after Labor Day. Two thirds of the 'Island' is a State Reservation, full of hiking trails, isolated beaches and salt marshes. The kayaking is excellent, as there are many coves and estuaries to explore. The shell fishing is also excellent. Bike riding is also a favorite pastime, as the roads are quiet and flat. There are 3 beaches within a 5 minute walk, and the Fairhaven Town beach is only about a 10 minute bike ride. This is one of the finest beaches in Buzzards Bay.
There are a number of restaurants nearby, including Off The Hook Restaurant and Bar, which is part of West Island Marina. West Island Marina is a 10 minute walk. During the summer and fall months there is live entertainment most weekends at Off The Hook.
Nearby New Bedford has a wonderful Historic District linking the City to is Whaling past. The Whaling museum, Seaman's Bethel, and many antique and art shops provide activities for those less than perfect beach days.
West Island is a true undiscovered gem that offers all of the beauty, beaches boating of the Cape, with no traffic. It is the perfect place to unwind, and the North Point is in the most desirable neighborhood.
