Checked off all our boxes, and more
I'm hesitant to post a good review, because I worry it will get harder to book this place in the future as it gets more popular...
We are so happy to have discovered this fantastic little cottage! We were looking for walking distance to the water, and we got it. I wouldn't have thought we could be so close for this price. There are amazing views of the bay from all the front windows and the deck, and it literally is a dozen or so steps to the stairs down to the beach. Our kids (7 and 11) had so much fun looking for hermit crabs and snails at low tide, and I could watch them on the beach from the kitchen window. We lucked out on the last day and there was a storm out at sea that brought in big waves, so it was like being on the ocean side, riding the waves on our tubes. Sunsets were also spectacular; we enjoyed one on the beach in front of the house with beer and fried clams!
The cottage has everything you need, including plenty of beach chairs. Next time I'll know I won't need to pack any. A/C was a nice bonus, as it was pretty hot when we were there, and while the ocean breezes are wonderful, it can still be pretty muggy at night. I honestly can't think of anything I'd change or recommend, though I do agree that an awning or umbrella would be nice on the deck (especially for this pale-skinned Ginger who can only take so much sun-exposure!)
As much as we like to explore new locations, I think we may not need to look any further. We're going to be a bit spoiled now -- we're always going to want to be this close to the water. Can't wait to come back again soon!

Will have to solve the shading problem. Don't want to be responsible for anyone, especially pale-skinned Ginger, becoming ruby red. We always intend on making this cottage the most comfortable as it can be in order for renters to get the most bang for their buck.
