Adorable cottage, dreamy location.

  • 5 of 5

This adorable little cottage is in perfect location: walikng distance to a sandy beach, a rocky beach, the village, and of course the lighthouse. The cottage is clean and comfortable...nice quality linens! There were fans and AC available, but didn't need due to ocean breeze. Family-friendly neighborhood, and the owners were lovely ( and flexible with our check-out time). It is small, so might feel crowded during a rainy week... but what a bargain! Would definitely return!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

While this place is small it provided an exceptional weekend getaway for our family. This place was clean and had plenty of room for our family (2 adults & 2 young kids)

The beach and lighthouse were a very short walk through a friendly neighborhood. The rocky beach, lighthouse and harbor seems to be a popular place for photographers but it was far from crowded. There is a small sandy beach beyond the rocks with calm shallow water that the kids thoroughly enjoyed playing and exploring in.

The owners were friendly and helpful couldnt have reasonably asked for more. This was our first time booking through a service like this or any like it and we are relieved it went so well. We will certainly keep this place in mind for future trips!

Amazing little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful stay at this beautiful beach cottage. It was myself, my husband, and our 5 month old baby. Plenty of room! It was nice to have a separate sleeping and living area so our daughter could nap and sleep well unlike if we went with a 1 room cottage or hotel. The bedroom offered plenty of room for our pack and play, I did also notice a pack and play in the closet (but we had brought our own). It was nice having linens and towels provided. Everything was super clean and pretty comfortable. Walking distance to a few beach areas (one little beach at the lighthouse was very convenient with our 5 month old since we could easily go back and forth as needed). This cottage was about a half hour walk to the town (so a 5-10 minute drive). Lots of shops and restaurants.

My only complaint is that the internet really didn't work. Diane did, however, respond to us when we asked about it very promptly and kept resetting it for us. Comcast did come out while we were there but unfortunately it didn't help. We could get it to work on one computer but not on mobile devices. I only mention it as a FYI to someone that may really need internet during their stay. Where my husband and I both often work remotely it was a bit inconvenient but also made it so we couldn't work too much on our vacation. :)

We will definitely keep this rental in mind for next summer if we come back to this area!

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay. The cottage was comfortable, neat and clean. A checklist was provided so you'd know where to find things and what to do upon departure. Also, some information about the area was included on the list. Downtown Scituate Harbor is a five minute drive away. I was lucky enough to get there before the Memorial Day weekend, so the area was quiet.

Charming cottage located in harbor, beautiful ocean breeze, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time here! Would definitely return! Owner nearby but very unobtrusive. Comfortable, clean accommodations, pet friendly. Beautiful town, great restaurants, close to Boston and the Cape but you don't really need to go anywhere, just exhale and relax!
