Comfortable cottage, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us -- two couples -- spent a very enjoyable week at the cottage on West Island. We had other family staying elsewhere on the island, who joined us in the comfortable living room for games and in the lovely back yard with views of the bay and access to the water. We took full advantage of the local restaurants and great seafood! The owner is very nice and was easy to contact the few times that was necessary.

All Expectations Met

  • 5 of 5

The process was painless and the house met all of our needs. Spotlessly clean, functional and fully maintained. Our security deposit was released the day we left. We would definitely rent this home again if we were to return to the area in the future. West Island is its own little haven and if you are into seafood this fishing Mecca will transport you to heaven. Margaret's in Fairhaven was our favorite with Dnb Burgers and Horta's in New Bedford following closely in its wake. I don't think I will ever order scallops again until I return to this awesome part of the state.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying at this beach house. It is located right on the water, and has a great little backyard overlooking the ocean. The whole bottom level of the house overlooks the water, which made our stay there very relaxing. The town beach is within walking distance, and it was perfect for our children. There are lots of activities to do with kids within a half hour or so driving distance; there is an amusement park, kids museums, and bike trails. Lots of good restaurants nearby as well. Shannon is a great host, she was easy to get a hold of anytime during the week if we had questions or concerns. The house was recently updated, and is very clean. I definitely recommend staying here, we are hoping to book a trip again next year!
