This place is so relaxed and off the main road with a nice place to eat in walking distance and the beach very close by. All you need is there a small pool, bikes to use to a kids wagon. The place was very clean and it has a little kitchen we did not use. The place had a nice... More

We stayed here for a week earlier this month and were very pleased with the experience. The cottage was clean, well-equipped and quiet, and the location cannot be beat. The quieter end of the island, and an easy walk to the great beaches on both sides of the island; bikes available at the cottage for longer explorations of the Island.... More

If you stay at Seahorse Cottages you are within walking distance of Lighthouse Beach and the owners kindly provide beach towels and a wagon to cart your belongings. The unit we stayed in was small but tidy and had everything we needed for a brief stay--full-size fridge, microwave, and small stove. The furniture was antique oak rather than the typical... More

We spent a lovely peaceful week here in December staying in unit 1A. Although we were a bit nervous as other posters had said this unit is only suitable for single travellers we found it absolutely fine for us. We were out on the complementary bikes most of the time anyway and when we came back to the cottage we... More

If you are looking for a quiet, clean, quaint location, this is it. Staff was very friendly. Pool was cleaned everyday. We stayed at The Seahorse Cottages 10 nights and twice we saw property clean up crews come through and maintain the property. The Seahorse Cottages are ideally located near the Lighthouse Beach. In fact my husband and I walked... More
