We loved our week stay at Two Beaches. The house was very clean and well appointed. It had everything we needed, plenty of nice bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, kitchen utensils, dishwasher, frig all new. The house feels bigger than it is. We had two families in the house and there was lots of room. The beds were new and comfortable, the backyard and porch were a delight. The short walk to good harbor beach was so nice to look at all the beautiful homes and views along the way.

Great location and accommodation!

This house is very clean and super well appointed with nice towels, kitchenware, bedding etc. You can walk to either beach, probably a drop off in the car if you have little ones and lots of gear to bring. We walked using the awesome beach carts provided. There are fans provided in the house so you can keep the air flowing and with windows open it keeps the house pretty comfortable. The yard is really pretty, nicely landscaped around some very cool rock formations. A lot of thought has gone into making this home a great rental.

Our two week vacation at Two Beaches Cottage was even better than the summer before, and that’s saying a lot, because last summer was perfect! Throughout the year any communication with the office staff at Atlantic Vacation Homes is consistent, courteous and reliable. Spring and early summer updates via email are helpful and provide useful information. Upon arrival of our stay, the outside appearance of beach house looked lovely, the inside was simple, fresh and clean. The pride of ownership and the pride of the AVH staff was evident throughout the house, and during each day of our stay.

Two Beaches Cottage was a great place to stay. We had a great weather week too! We loved everything about this home--beds were very comfy and kitchen and other rooms were perfect, plus ample parking conditions. Many great features, appealing decor and sweet touches to this place.

The house worked out great for us. There was plenty of room in the house. The location allowed us to walk to Long beach or Good Harbor. It was nice that they provided beach chairs and towels and other beach gear.

Two Beaches Cottage is a lovely property and was the perfect location to host a reunion for my family. The cottage kitchen is well equipped for preparing and enjoying meals. The living room, sunroom, front and back deck areas, in home washer/dryer, and bbq & yard are all wonderful features. We appreciated the beach chairs and beach towels. I was truly impressed with the ample pillows and bed & bath linens. The layout of the bedrooms and common areas is ideal for group visiting, as well as private time. We did not do any sight seeing, as we had not been together in 2 1/2 years, so used the week for quality visiting time. It really was a wonderful vacation.
