Do not hesitate to book this charming cottage. It is immaculate, tastefully decorated, and nicely equipped. We rent often, and the difference between a good rental and a great one is the details -- like large, fluffy towels, ample spices, salt, pepper, coffee and filters, quality bed linens, and good lighting. The fire pit was a nice amenity as well. While not on the water, the home is mere steps from the beach, right out the back gate and down a short path. Joan was a very accommodating host and provided good communication regarding the rental. We would return in a heartbeat.

Thank you for your glowing review. We are so very pleased that you noticed our attention to details and our good house keeping.
We have a passion for the little beach house and we appreciate that our guests can feel and see all are hard efforts in maintaining the home as well as creating a unique, coastal experience.
Our mission was to create a little house which was delightful to the eye, happy and playful in decor and make you feel like you are away from home and at a Coastal Retreat. We are so pleased when our guests can feel the love and care put into the home.

We had the best time in this quaint, cozy, wonderful cottage! From the nicely landscaped yard that camouflaged the road, to having coffee in the morning on the deck, to the nautically decorated interior. Everything we needed was thought of and provided for.
The lake was just a short walk away. (There were stairs leading down to the lake). We almost had the entire beach area to ourselves. Sunsets were exquisite
Hoping to revisit this charming cottage again very soon.

Thank you for your 5 star review. We work very hard at keeping the cottage charming. We think we have the best little piece of property as our garden gate opens up to the beach path. Once outside of the garden gate, you have views of the water. It is a short 150 paces to the landing and the beach steps. It makes it so very easy to walk back and forth to the house for potty breaks or refreshments. We are so fortunate to be on Lake Shore Rd and on the Shore side of the road. Our clients love the ease and access to the water. No lugging of beach carts and beach stuff down to the water with a long walk back to your rental. The Beauty of The Shorewinds is its location and old cottage charm.
September is a fabulous time of year to stay. The days are bright, blue, less humidity and bugs and the evenings are crisp. The water in September is at its warmest as it has had June, July and August to build up its warmth. Come back again soon! Joan Arquilla , owner
