This is a well kept, clean , adorable beach house! My family and I stayed here for a week and could not of been happier. The house is extremely efficient and user friendly. The furnishings are comfortable and easy on the eye. I loved the decor. The beach is just a few steps away and sunsets are awaiting every night! The neighbors are friendly too. Loved this place!!!

“This cottage has it all”
Reviewed 29 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a week and found it very comfortable, clean, and fully appointed. It is a lovely little beach cottage that is just a scant hundred yards from a private beach access just down the private driveway used by this cluster of six cute cottages.

The location is great; there's a mini-market a few blocks north, an ice cream shop across the street, and for the grownups there's also a liquor store across the street. The cottage itself has literally everything you could want, ranging from beach towels, beach umbrellas and chairs, an outdoor shower, sand buckets and water noodles to board games, books, Wi-Fi, and even wine, martini, and margarita glasses if you did happen to purchase some adult beverages across the street.

The queen bed is very comfortable (just wish it was a king...I think the room would accommodate it, since the headboard is a king-sized one), the place is spotlessly clean, and there's even a washer and dryer in the half bath off the porch.

One thing to keep in mind for some people: there is a step up to the enclosed porch and another rather steep step up into the cottage from the porch.

We really enjoyed our stay except for one thing: the evil swivel chair in the living room. If you have mobility problems, or knee or back problems like both my husband and I do, then you will regret sitting there. It is really difficult to get out of it since it is so low and the springs are sprung.

Aside from that, our stay was wonderful and I cannot say anything negative about Piney Nook Cottage #4...and Aly, the owner, is very responsive to inquiries. Her pride in this beach house is obvious and with very good reason. It is almost perfect!

Liked best: The location and the beachy feel.
Liked least: The horribly uncomfortable chair in the living room. Replace it with something an older person can rise from without assistance.

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us! We appreciate your business!

Also, thank you for bringing the evil swivel chair to our attention! I'm truly sorry for any physical discomfort this chair caused you and your husband.

Thanks to you fabulous review, we now have 2 improvements that will be made ASAP: A new lounge chair in the living room, and a king size bed!

The next time you book with us, I'm certain you will be super comfy! :)

Thank you again for your kind words and incredible feedback!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 20 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

people found this review helpful

This cottage is sweet! Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a private cottage? The cottage is completely stocked with everything you would need, from needle and thread, scissors, cork screws, dishes, pots and pans, shampoo, sunblock, laundry detergent.... Seriously, you only need to bring your clothes and food. The location is perfect, just a short drive to johns pass and plenty of restaurants. The beach is just a few steps out the door, no streets to cross. Dont think twice about this one, it is home away from home. The only bad thing.. No wifi...but other then that, perfection
