For our annual Memorial Day trip to Seabrook, we stayed at the "Kite Tails & Sand Pails" cottage which was a 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath home. All rooms were decorated very nicely and the stay for my wife and I and three kids were great. In addition to the main house, there was a small carriage house included which had an additional small 2 room place above a small garage. Unfortunately, there was no access to the inside of the garage as it was filled with the owner's personal items, but that wasn't an issue for us since there was plenty of parking on the street by the side of our house. My two teenage kids really liked staying in the carriage house, as it seemed like a small apartment and allowed them to stay up at night and sleep in undisturbed.
A few minor disappointments to note: The description on Seabrook's web site for this home was not entirely accurate. A few items listed as included were not present in the house, such as beach towels and a baby gate for the top stairs (which which was a concern because of the very steep stairs going up to the 2nd floor). It wasn't a big deal, but these items were expected since they were listed in the home's description.
Although not listed as being included, the two beach cruiser bikes that we usually find with the homes here were conspicuously missing from this rental cottage. A small disappointment since we do enjoy riding around town and at the beach when we visit.
This particular home had plenty of niceities, such as full-sized washer and dryer, large hot tub, two flat screen TVs with cable TV service, fast Internet WiFi, and a nice electric fireplace.
Another thing to note, don't plan on eating at the Mill 109 Restaurant over this holiday without having to wait and hour or more. They have very limited seating, and are busy throughout most of the day. So, my suggestion is to bring plenty of food just in case you plans to eat at this restaurant don't work out.
Fortunately for us, our 1st day at Seabrook was sunny and we had a great time at the beach. Our place had a convenient outside shower so we could wash off our dog after she romped in the sand and ocean. The wrap around deck of this house was also nice for relaxing outside and enjoying the sunshine.
As always, our kids enjoyed the pool and our dog liked the long walks around the town. This was another pleasant stay for my family, and we will be back again next year for sure.
