My wife and I rented the first mates quarter for a valentine's weekend getaway. We both loved it. My wife especially liked the decor of the suite and the at home feel that it gave her. Myself, my favorite part was the patio and listening to the surf crashing with a nice glass of wine or coffee depending on the... More

My wife and I rented the Starboard cottage for our honeymoon. It was an amazing place to fall asleep and wake up to. The view across the straight was breathtaking. The hot tub was an great way to relax in the evening. The 'kitchen' was more that enough for us, including the BBQ.

There are gorgeous huge trees surrounding the buildings and the flowers and gardens are beautiful. The cottage was so thoughtfully decorated and stocked, and clean. Truly well looked after and very clean. Everything you could possibly need... More

A most wonderful 2 night stay in the First Mate's Quarters. No one else was staying in the Captain's Quarters so we had the place to ourselves. Really lovely views and quiet peaceful setting. Eagles and woodpeckers abound here and their dove was just beautiful. There was nothing like the view of the ocean from our front porch. I never... More

I have to concur with former reviewers that the website pictures do not do this place justice. For example, the ocean view right from your bed is magnificent, and when browsing the pictures, it seemed like we would only be able to see a glimpse of it. We loved the personal touch at the cottage, which was not too cluttered... More
