There is a reason that I recently returned to Nautilus. The property is a breathtaking piece of island life. The units are well maintained and clean. The deck which overlooks the northern end of Seven Mile Beach is all you need to relax and unwind. Traveling with my children on this stay was no different that when I have stayed...

We enjoyed our stay in the cosy and rustic (with a few extra frills) beach front studio cottage! In addition to the convenience of a small kitchenette, it has a deck on which to enjoy breakfast every morning and stars at night in completely tranquility. Falling asleep and waking to the sound of the waves. This spot is perfect for...

A lot has changed since year 1--the cottage, which used to be the rustic, roughing it location now is the most popular property of the three units. And why not? It boasts a full kitchen (including dishwasher), two comfortable bedrooms, a washer and dryer, and views to die...

We stayed in the Nautilus Cottage. It is rustic (no A/C, historic building) but comfortable, and definitely one of the best values on the Island. The best part is how Frank & Beth make you feel right at home, answering all of your questions and making excellent recommendations. You can't beat walking out the front door onto a patio overlooking...
