What a terrific find this place is!
I understand that each cottage slightly different, so this applies to unit #9. Stepping into this cute little two bedroom cottage is more like stepping into a private home than a vacation rental. We were pleased that the actual place more than exceeded what we were expecting from what we had seen on the website’s photos.
The living room had a full sized couch and chairs - enough seating for six, all around a full sized brick fireplace. There was a flat screen TV with cable, DVD and VHS player and enough movies to keep any family busy during the longest winter storm. They even had a supply of card and board games. There was a large picture window to let in plenty of light.
The kitchen was just like a home with full sized oven/range - refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The cabinets were full of just about everything you would need including pots and pans, (including bakeware and cupcake liners!) hand mixer, flatware, serving tools, cups, glasses and mugs. There was even a hot air popcorn pop popper with a supply of popcorn and cooking staples.
The two bedrooms contained one queen size and one twin size bed, each - so there was sleeping room for 6 people. There were extra blankets and pillows available in the closet and ample drawer space if you wanted to use it. I do have to say I think the box spring on the mattress I slept on was nearing the end of its service-life, but I still got a good nights sleep.
The bathroom had fresh, fluffy towels, handmade soaps and hair dryer.
The cottages are located one street off the main road in town (Pacific Avenue - Rt 103) so there was barely any road noise, and we stayed in the cottage closest to the road. The manager was very pleasant and made sure we had everything we needed. She was aware of our arrival time and had turned on the heat for us before our arrival so we had a warm room to greet us. They have Wi-Fi, and since we were on the outside of the court, it was a bit spotty but we did use it many times throughout the long weekend. The cottage is decorated with numerous prints and photos on the walls. (We did start to wonder who all those people are.)
Every unit was full, yet we really didn’t hear anyone else. The cottages are on the quiet, North end of Long Beach. This is the kind of place I would send friends to, for a quiet few days away from the city. I would have no issue coming back here again, either to cottage #9 or any of the others.
