We had an amazing experience staying at the house and we definitely plan on coming back. The decor was comfortably boho chic, the kitchen is well-equipped for cooking, the private beach is super convenient to the house and the pool gets nice and warm. Mary, the house caretaker, was extremely helpful and accessible, answering our questions throughout the weekend. I highly recommend staying at this house with a group of friends who enjoy eating and being merry!
This was our 2nd time staying here and it was as perfect as the first time. Such a beautiful house! Bring good shoes for the pebble beach as it's worth having comfortable footwear for long sunset walks!
A wonderful home to spend on holiday with family or friends. After securing the reservation, I was able to coordinate the check in time with Lyra and the caretaker. From there, it felt like a home that had been in our lives for years. It is quiet and free of neighbors yet conveniently located down the road from the main town, making dining or grocery pickups a breeze. The kitchen area is provides a grand get together room for all of your guests and the pool made for a nice Friday afternoon hangout. Highly recommended and I know we are looking forward to visiting again in the future.
We had a wonderful 3 generation vacation at your house.
All was perfect. Wonderful privacy and antique house.
Small suggestion; more kitchen lighting.
Thanks so much
Can't imagine a more perfect place to escape the city with friends. The attention to detail was astounding, from the beautifully appointed parlor with fireplace to the incredible tower bedroom to the backyard which gently sloped down to the water. Already counting down the days until we return.
We had a magical time. I felt like I was transported to a far away place and time. As soon as I arrived, I knew I wouldn't want to leave.
