“It was a fair accommodation.”
Reviewed October 9, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Cottage was close to the beach (ten minute walk) and a five minute drive to downtown Southampton.
The cottage itself could use some upgrades, it was well worn in kitchen and living room areas. The comforters on the beds were stained and therefore not used. The mattress covers were stained and had to be washed before use. Also it would be nice if blankets and pillows available for renters use were not left in a ball on the floor of the bedrooms. The highchair was so dirty it had to be hosed down and disinfected before using for our grandchild.

“Worked for us.”
Reviewed August 30, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Place was good for a group of adults of various ages that were in and out for 2 to 3 days. Four bedrooms good for us and kitchen had everything needed. Enjoyed the fire pit 3 times too. Only drawback, was not that clean when we arrived and kids had been on the beds with shoes. Master bedroom duvet was stained and gross, but we didn't use it. Place could use and update, probably not painted since built. All in all, ok. 0.6 km to beach is an easy walk for adults and teens

“Convenient, good setting”
Reviewed August 16, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Located near bike trail and beach. Great for campfires and badminton in the backyard. Fans helped since there is no air conditioning. The one downside was queen size beds have wooden frames hence incredibly noisy with the slightest movement.

“Large, beautiful house in a quiet area, 8 minute walk to the beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

This is a year-round house among other homes, and not a cottage per se; it is close to Southampton Beach which has lots of parking in case you decide to drive down instead of walking. Five minute drive to the downtown area, or walk it in 20 minutes. Nicely furnished and clean. (I'm sure it's a family's home that they sometimes rent out.) Wi-Fi works well. Satellite TV. No air conditioning but there are fans in every room and a big ceiling fan in the living room's cathedral ceiling.

Upstairs: Master bedroom with TV and en suite bathroom with shower, and another bedroom with two single beds. (Might be better if the bathroom were central to both bedrooms).

Downstairs: two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with a double bed and bunk above), a full bathroom, a large kitchen with all the necessities, double car garage. Huge living room, big dining room table... There is a big wooden deck and a shady lawn area with a fire pit in the backyard: Table, chairs, barbecue, big umbrella. Perfect. (No hot tub.)

This house is perfect for up to six adults plus a couple of children. We were here on a cool, rainy week but it would be ideal in summery weather. I tried to think of some negative aspects for a more balanced review but could not find any. Oh, OK ... the dining room chairs are wood and a bit hard for sitting on for long periods while playing cards on a rainy day.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the cottage although there was not enough fans or air conditioning. There was plenty of space for all of us and we love that we could bring our dogs.

“Nice, Large Cottage in Suburban Neighbourhood”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

This cottage was a nice size, good layout, and a great spot for kids. The cottage also had a well-stocked kitchen. The walk to the beach is a bit long and not doable with young kids and gear. We planned to drive to the beach and did most days. It is located in a suburban rather than more cottage, beachy area of Southampton. Keep that in mind depending on the setting you would like. The area is quite calm and quiet though and close to a great trail. The cottage itself could have been cleaner upon our arrival, our feet were black after walking around for a few minutes. The floor mop left for tenant use is not ideal though. I also cleaned quite a bit of pet hair and we did not bring a pet. I think for our next cottage I will choose something that provides linens, towels and a cleaning service in between to save the work but that is personal preference. The cottage has a great amount of toys for the kids, they loved this. The downside if you are bringing a baby: the crib is located in the master bedroom and cannot be moved. Our baby ended up having the full master bedroom so that was a bit disappointing. The yard is nice and big as well as the deck, the landscaping does need some love. Having a clothesline is a great bonus after visiting the beach. The key pad on the door was so convenient for us too. Southampton itself is a great, not too crowded destination. The public playground and museum are excellent for kids. The beaches are absolutely beautiful. If you have young ones, head to the beach entrance at the very base of Island St., giant sandbar and no rocks. The water is very calm here too.
