“Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Amazing location (so many beaches near by) and place is exactly as advertised. Cozy, cute and clean on the inside with a stunning view and great picnic table. Pat is also a great host. Would 100% recommend.”

“As other reviewers have said, this place is even better than it looks in the pics, which is saying something given that it already looks pretty good in the pics. My partner and I just spent a week here, enjoying the waterfront views and privacy. The cottage sits at the end of a farm lane, surrounded by marshes and wheat fields on one side, and a long waterfront on the other. Tons of great birdwatching, and one night we saw a dolphin. I'm rarely satisfied with the cleanliness of any place, especially in a pandemic, but I had absolutely no complaints about Genevieve's rental. Floors, fridge, shower: everything was spotless. The place is very stylishly decorated, with fixtures you wouldn't expect in a rental (e.g., stone countertops, higher-quality faucets, etc.), and wifi was fast enough for Zoom meetings (the wifi works even a little ways outside the cottage, if you want to sit in the yard and work with a view). Communication with Genevieve was easy and quick (her daughter dropped off a needed kitchen utensil about 10 minutes after I asked about it). We especially enjoyed the fire pit while watching the sunset, as well as the total privacy. I'd recommend this rental to close friends and family, and I definitely hope to stay here again.”

“This adorable cottage was small as advertised, but so sweet. All you need. The sunset was second to none! It was a gorgeous setting right on the water. Definitely a place to visit again once the Covid-19 crisis has passed. Right now it’s a hard hit community, but the cottage is very secluded, and Channing has all the cleaning precautions in place. Thank you to Channing and family. Stay well!”
