I chose to request the cottage based on the effusive reviews of the previous guests and my experience did not disappoint! Michele went above and beyond in making sure we were comfortable in her place and well-informed about the huge number of places to eat in Portsmouth. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
What a cute little cottage for a weekend away! The cottage was extremely clean and had everything you could possibly need. It is walking distance to everything in downtown Portsmouth, and is located in a quaint, but busy, neighborhood on the river. The bed and linens were quite comfortable. Michele was wonderful to work with and always responded quickly.
Our only complaint was that there was no TV or Wi-Fi. We know how lame that sounds, but we live without TV at our home, and on our weekends away we tend to look forward to a couple of hours of mindless home renovation shows. It’s our own fault, as I overlooked that TV is not listed in the amenities. Otherwise the house was perfect!
Michele was great to deal with giving us awesome restaurant suggestions and her responses were quick. We especially liked the tapa restaurant called CAVA. The accommodations were clean and neighborhood was quite and people were friendly. The cottage is walking distance to the town where there are coffee shops, pubs, bakeries and restaurants everywhere. The food was great where ever we went so good place for foodies. Had an amazing time and would live to return in the summer.
Michele's cottage was just as described. Cute, quaint and cozy. Good lounging spaces indoors and out. The kitchen is well equipped, but note, there is no microwave. The location is excellent, walking distance to most everything; downtown, unique shops, coffeehouses, museum, Kittery, Maine. Michele was very helpful in recommending restaurants and we took her suggestions for two spots, both great!
The cottage was just as described. Small, cozy, and just far enough away from town to be quiet but close enough to walk to in 5-10 mins. We would definitely go back. Michele also made a ton of great recommendations for local restaurants and bars to check out during out visit.
Michele's cottage was perfect, exactly what we were looking for for our wedding weekend in Portsmouth, NH. It is in a picturesque location, walking distance to the beautiful Prescott Park and all the fun places downtown Portsmouth has to offer. The cottage was immaculate, she left us eggs, and the bed linens were so so comfortable. Michele was incredibly accommodating, letting us check in early and leave late. She was also very responsive when we had questions prior to our stay. We couldn't be happier with our first AirBnB experience!
