Holiday Rental House
Little Island House has an UPSTAIRS and a DOWNSTAIRS apartment. The UPSTAIRS apartment is entered by the outside stairway to the deck and sliding glass door, located on the left of the house from the parking area. The deck continues around the corner across the entire harbor-facing side of the house. There are a table and four chairs and a propane Weber grill on the deck for outside dining, coffee, wine, bird-watching--whatever strikes your fancy as the tides come and go. Inside, the living room and dining room area has cathedral ceiling and skylight with a granite floor-to-ceiling fireplace. Large windows are all around; the sliding glass door completes the panoramic view. Bookshelves, cable TV, games and puzzles, and high speed Internet give you lots of options for entertainment.

There is a study area between the living room and the stairs to the bedroom, perfect for computer, writing, or 'working from home.' The bedroom, with skylight and a window, is on the third floor and has a queen-size bed, large closet, two dressers, and shuttered windows that open onto the cathedral ceiling and the fireplace below. The bathroom/shower is around the corner from the kitchen. The kitchen is spacious and lovely, with tile and hardwood floor. Everything you need for cooking, coffee, wine, lobster, etc. The Upstairs apartment has central heat for the off season, excellent ventilation in summer (with box fan and two smaller fans if needed) and all the firewood one would like for a cozy fire anytime. All linens (bed, bath, and kitchen) are supplied. Immaculately clean, lovely decor. No smoking, no pets. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1148316More
