Absolutely Perfect Home, Location & Owners

  • 5 of 5

As another review said, the photos really don't do it justice. It's a great house in a wonderful spot. We had 5 adults plus a dog and had plenty of room, supplied with everything we could ever need or want while on vacation. The location is perfect--it's easy to take long safe walks, runs and bike rides. You can go kayaking, swimming. The house is clean, well-stocked, and the neighbors very friendly. Lots to do in the area, with great restaurants and food suppliers, plus local events such as jazz night, festivals, etc. John is a perfect host. We would not hesitate to recommend his house to anyone and we look forward to staying here again!

Peace at the Shore - continued from above review

  • 5 of 5

In addition to my review above, the pictures John has on this site do not do his property justice. The home and property is prettier in person! Thanks again John!!

Peace at the Shore

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just got back from a beautiful, fun filled, weekend get away at John's beach home. He was a great Host, always available by cell phone for even the smallest questions. There were beautiful fresh flowers in vases, upon checking in to the home. Very welcoming!! The men in our group fished from the beach outfront. We ordered fresh caught lobster from a local resident, and we had perfect weather all weekend. The home is charming, welcoming, spotless, and had every little thing you could think of to make it feel like home! (I WISH this was my home!!) We will definitely be back. Thank you for a great weekend of Rest & Relaxation!

Gail & Family Second Year

Another great stay. Our family looked forward to this all year, and it was great!

John was as conscientious as always. All ages of our expanding family enjoyed all sorts of activities.

Charming cottage with million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a long weekend. John, the owner, was super - both helpful and conscientious to a fault. The house was charming and had everything one could need from plenty of fresh linens, a huge master bedroom with a killer view and free wi-fi, even a spare pullout cot for that extra guest. The private beach is small, but perfect for our small child - clean, safe and only 10 steps from the back door.

We definitely look forward to the chance to stay again, and hopefully without the 2 days of rain we had. But that's not the fault of the house or the owner.
