A friend and I want to rent something on the ocean, probably while it's still chilly in March/April for a couple of weeks. We'd like to be near a village (don't care about boutiques, but a few bookstores/restaurants/fishing would be great). We're not looking to swim --in fact, rocky beach would be better--mainly we want some scenery, to read with coffee and blankets looking out over the ocean, feel a bit isolated from the busy world, get some peace and quiet. Any suggestions for a suitable area? If at all possible, we'd love someplace where there are rentals with some character--wood frame houses with porches, say, rather than condos or cheap pre-fab cottages. Thanks!
