We had great relaxing "downtime" here - it's all about the location - beach, beach and more beach! Thanks to Gwen & Terry for hosting us!

Gwen and Terry's Airbnb was magnificent! We originally had very spontaneously booked Squish Inn but were graciously upgraded to Splash Landing. The place itself was very beautiful, cozy and clean. Every detail was well-thought through (Thank you for surprising us with farm fresh eggs and english muffins!) The area itself is a hidden gem - a true New England escape by right by the beach! We had a magical time and can't wait to be back in the future. Thank you!

The beach is gorgeous, the apt is wonderfully homie and they offer small treats and touches that make you feel that much more welcome! We will definitely be back!!! Don’t miss out on an opportunity to stay here!

If I could give this review 100 stars I would. It was absolutely perfect. This was the first AirBNB I have ever been to, and it has not only changed my views on AirBNB, but has completely changed the way I will travel from now on. The rate for this room was comparable if not cheaper than rooms at nearby Holiday Inns and Motel 8s, and the overall stay is worlds better. First, the house is located at the end of a secluded street on a private beach on the ocean. So if you're looking for something quiet, this is perfect. Then, you get up to your door, where Cookie is usually laying down ready to greet you. She is such a sweet old dog, that even if you are not a dog person, it doesn't matter because she keeps to herself, and just hopes that on your way in or out you give her a quick pet and say hi. Now you are in the room, and just Wow. It is so cute and well decorated that the room just feels so cozy and comfortable. Plenty of space to store everything you bring with you, a dresser and 2 closets, not that we didn't just live out of our suitcase, but it was nice to know that if we wanted to unpack and make it feel like home, we could. And finally the part that made this room worth every penny is the fact that Gwen and Terry have literally supplied everything you could possibly think to need, and go above and beyond with all their little personal touches. There are clean dishes and silverware in the little kitchenette with the microwave and fridge, sure that's expected, but also they have little food trays in case you decide to have a meal in bed, napkins that match the decor, a Keurig with a nice assortment of coffees and cocoa and all the cream and sugars you could need. They also left a few snacks and bottles of water in the fridge for us and a freezer full of ice. Plenty of towels in case you decided to go spend some time in the ocean or on the private beach, to which you have full access of. Every single toiletry you could possibly think to need they have stashed away somewhere for you. And then the toilet itself. It is in its own little room so to keep any odors from filling the rest of the room, but that's not where Gwen and Terry stopped on that subject because they also supply you with some glade spray to help and also a bottle of Poo-pouri. And then my favorite part, the Squatty Potty, which if you don't know what that is, look it up because it is life changing. Now we booked this room, my wife and I, for our anniversary that we were spending in Boston, and Gwen and Terry were informed of this, and as a sweet surprise...

We have stayed in many air bnbs and this was by far our favorite. Everything was perfect! Our hosts went above and beyond with the space and the little gifts each day were not expected at all. I mentioned I was vegan and the second day there my wife and I came back to our airbnb and found a present with vegan deserts that were really delightful. The space was clean the beach and privacy was better than expected and the hosts were awesome. Well worth the money. We will without question go back again!

Gwen and Terry's place is beautiful and the perfect location for a relaxing beach getaway! They are amazing hosts and care about your stay and making you comfortable. They were so accommodating and I loved the touches from fresh fruit and cinnamon cake in the morning to snacks on the beach. The room was so comfortable and clean and had everything I needed for a great weekend! And their dog cookie is so wonderful. I highly recommend staying at Squish Inn and I hope to get back there in the future!

Squish Inn was adorable and perfect for a weekend away with my husband. It was very clean, very quaint, and well-decorated. Gwen & Terry were very thoughtful hosts. They left us freshly-picked strawberries and apple turnovers from a local bakery! The beach was absolutely gorgeous! It was very private and very relaxing. Gwen & Terry gave us recommendations for some great restaurants.
