Summer Haven

Summer Haven was just that---our Haven. The cottage was huge! So sunny and great views of the ocean and Diamond Island from the giant front porch. The area was quiet---very nice neighborhood. The back yard is attached to a park so there was plenty of room for the kids to run around.

It was absolutely wonderful! Both Paul and Jody were extremely friendly and accommodating. Whatever I asked for, they made sure it happened! I would TOTALLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a rental on Peaks.

And to the lady who thought it wasn't up to her standards---go to a hotel next time. Leave our beautiful rustic island cottages to the people who can really appreciate them. The place was PERFECT!

Clean and serene

Whoa! I just read the previous review from 'Laura'. I have stayed here numerous times over the years and NEVER experienced what she described. In fact, I was so impressed with my first experience in 2009 that I am what's called "a repeat customer"...and a satisfied one at that!

Just a quick note to thank you for the use of Summer Haven on Peaks Island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the beautiful sunsets from the porch and our backshore strolls. We found your property clean and well maintained and appreciated you dropping by to see how things were going and to offer your suggestions on making the most of our island stay.
See you next year,
Brent and Moira M.

House was filthy

  • 2 of 5
Emailing back and forth was very pleasant. The gentleman was very friendly and prompt. However, when we got to the house, it was totally dirty. I mean, food on the table, wash cloth in the shower along with used soap and shampoo, the floors where filthy, the pillows were ancient and yellowed and spotted, the sheets were all dusty, you name it. One bed was made and I can only imagine someone else had slept in it. It was if someone had just left the house. We had to go out and get cleaning supplies and clean the whole thing and wash the sheets before we did anything. The trash and the recycling was piled up outside. Really disappointing. Our guests that week brought their own pillows - a MUST. Really, the pillows are just gross. There are blankets, but we put them away as they were really nasty too. I emailed the man and he said that the cleaning lady had the schedule wrong - ok, but there were cobwebs with bugs in them that were between the furniture - they'd been there awhile. It was disgusting, sorry to say. All that said, once it was clean the house was fine. Good location, quiet, nice neighbors. Just be prepared to clean the whole place - especially the toilet (gross!!!) - and not to be offered any compensation. We weren't.

Owner's Response: Its very unfortunate this renter had a bad experience. As she stated, there was mix-up on the cleaning schedule and unfortunately our apologies and multiple attempts to contact her to offer to remedy the situation went unanswered.
