Imagine yourself walking across the lawn to the ocean, sweetly lapping the rocks. You take off your sandals and put your feet into the cool water. Second thought, jump right in! Great space for activities; near beaches, restaurants, galleries.
This cottage has been hosting travelers and merry-makers since 1899. It's a well-kept traditional cottage that is 15 yards from the water. 3 bedrooms with a total of 5 beds. The queen sized bed is in an enclosed porch that faces the water. Another two twin bed bedroom is upstairs. A full sized bed is upstairs facing the shore. There is another small bunk sized bed tucked away in a storage space.
The kitchen is sufficient for putting on meals for the whole gang. There is a nice dining area in front of the porch next to the kitchen. The fireplace is will keep you warm of cool fall nights and brings everyone together.
The house is on a good sized piece of property that allows you to play in the yard and walk right down to the water.

BANGKOK AND PHUKET, THAILAND:: SAIGON/HO CHI MINH, VIETNAM:: CAPE ANN, MASSACHUSETTS USA. Expanding our hosting experiences to new places!
I love working with travellers and residence owners to create a wonderful experience for everyone. I've been doing hosting and managing properties since 2013, across the world. There are such great discoveries to make in each place.
With my teams on the ground in Bangkok, Phuket, Saigon and the North Shore of Boston, we will welcome you warmly and help you to know great places to eat and explore.
I worked in advertising and research for a long time in Asia and the US. I love being in a different culture and learning new ways of thinking. I speak Thai fluently and OK in Chinese.
I have two kids in college (please support me!) and spend most of the year in beautiful New England, near my wonderful parents who also help me take care of guests.
