Most rentals are judged by the surroundings, # of bedrooms, etc. Our choice was taken from the wonderful past remarks/reviews about the LANDLORDS. They were wonderful to deal with & all their effort in having & keeping this lovely cottage is worth the look see.
It was all that was advertised & more. The cottage has some lovely recent work & the coziness of the den with fireplace, etc is so welcoming. We were very happy there & found the pricing appropriate to the offerings. Plus, the location is close to a variety of restaurants, ferries, great family "play areas" and oh, don't forget THE VIEW!!! We would definitely go back.

Welcome to Idle Time Cottage by the Sea, West Yarmouth, Cape Cod. I am delighted to have so many guests who have enjoyed my oceanfront beach house, and have returned year after year for another vacation of sun and fun.

I encourage all of my guests to add a comment to the Rentors Org guest book. I will look for your comments from this day forward.

This is at the top of our list of favorite places to get away to. It is close to everything. The views are to die for, and the owners are great and the absolute best!

Wonderful house, very accomodating owners, great location near everything!
August 20, 2004 Jennifer Balades Bradenton, FL
Such a beautiful house. Very comfortable, well decorated and well located. The owners have wonderful attention to detail and obviously really love the place. It's like staying in someones home rather than a beach rental. We missed being there this year but plan to go back next year.
