    Does this property have a website to see the layout of the property? I want a unit next to the pool but some of the units i look at seem to be by the pool but i think the pic is just a pic of the pool and not from the unit itself.

    Call resort quest, they can look @ availability & let you know which units are next to pool.

    Hi, Why does this say Nantucket Rainbow Cottages vs. Beach Street Cottages? We booked 4 cottages for August and now after reading the reviews , I'm disappointed that the old cottages have not been updated and that guests have found them to be dirty and bug ridden and have mice :( The above reviews are all old and we are in to late June...there are no recent reviews? Why? Are the reviews being deleted?
