Review 1-6 of 6

6 May 2013


"Edge of Paradise"

We found this cottage on an earlier trip to the area, not knowing it would be available to rent, and took photos of it because we loved it so much! To our delight, this year we were able to rent it for a week. We found the interior to match the exterior: beautiful, comfortable, every amenity you would find in a city - but, with a view that takes your breath away! The ocean side of the house is one gigantic view of pastoral fields (full of little calves and their loving mothers!) and the ocean! We were greeted by a rainbow arching across the bay our first morning and knew we were "home"! The Master Bedroom has a window the height and width of the bed so when you wake up, you feel you are in the landscape, a view we never tired of. If peace, beauty and a feeling that you are in a world removed from cares is what you are looking for, this is it! We will be back, again and again and again!
