Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
60’s modern/retro, award-winning (design) house. 45 secs to beach. Spacious, clean, social- well suited for groups and families (up to 10 max please, 8 is ideal).

Fabulous retro mid house, open-roofed porch.

BBQ, Outdoor shower, Hardwood floors, lots of light.
3 minutes from the ferry/ restaurants, but on a quiet street.

Appliances and mattresses regularly replaced.

Professionally cleaned weekly

The space
The mid spaced outdoor porch is fantastic. (chairs, BBQ, table etc) Open to the stars and sun, but no neighbors can look in!

I'm willing to make a deal last minute or off season!

Please note: this is an older beach house that gets a lot of traffic during the season. If you are expecting the 4 Seasons, you will be disappointed!

The vast majority of folks absolutely love the casual, no frills, vintage feel. There are some folks (luckily just a very few) who spend their time looking for faults. If this is how you roll, do us both a favor and check into a hotel!


We try to use green products to minimize the impact on the environment. We all know they work with certain limitations.

Porch boards rot during the season, screens rip. We do the best we can to keep it up during a heavy renting season, but unlike where most of us live normally, there are NO stores or Home Depot's just around the corner, so the level of response is sometimes slower than it would be back on the mainland.

I invite people to go out and see the house (or the video) before booking because I take seriously the positive experience of my guests. But you also need to keep your expectations in check!

Years and years of fantastic experiences from renters, from single folks to college friends to families with small kids to retirees.

This house is really unique and folks from all over the world have stayed here.

If your friends would characterize you as uptight and extremely particular (and unable to be cured by some serious relaxing beach time) please don't rent this house!

If , however, you are cool and relaxed and realistic, please come and enjoy the hell out of a great house right near the beach.

Out the front steps to the right (a 2 minute walk) is a private dock where you can catch a blood red sunset with cocktails before heading back to the house or restaurants for dinner.

It's a quiet neighborhood. The house is less than a minute to the ocean and you can hear it all night! So awesome.

It's a special, unique place designed in the 60's to support entertaining! It's sort of bare bones in terms of what we supply, but that helps keep the cost down. The full list of what we supply and what you should bring is in the contract you get when you book. Happy to share some of that before hand if you want.

I moved up to the country from NYC where I was in the music biz and lived on a boat after college. Decided after a decade to get back to my farming roots! Along the way I had an awesome daughter who is still quite young. I have a commercial horse boarding facility and a farm house that the Fonz (remember him?) used to live in. I totally gutted it and modernized it. I do weddings on this beautiful 150 acre farm and host Gunx campers, too. I play music and write for the local paper/ Also write for NPR.
