Pet Friendly Family Cottage Close to Beach and Pool - Excellent Location


Property Details

Updated: Jul 29, 2016
Morning-Glory Cottage, 2 bedrooms + loft, 2 baths, sleeps 1-8

A delightful pet friendly cottage situated a 19 minute walk from Rathrevor Beach and directly across from the swimming pool, Morning-Glory Cottage has all the amenities required for a enjoyable stay - in our wonderful summers or mild winters. Whether you wish to relax by the warm fireplace, visit the Oceanside area and/or play on the sunny beaches, this vacation rental offers comfort, convenience and accessibility to all the area has to offer.

Morning-Glory was designer decorated and has two bedrooms on the main floor, as well as a loft with a second full bathroom. This arrangement allows lots of room for friends and family to live, play and relax in comfort. It will accommodate up to eight people.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities - including patio glassware, dishes, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer and place mats. In keeping with the nature theme on the floor and backsplash, the beauty of the wood stained shaker cabinetry compliments the warm golden and russet tones of the rest of the cottage.

The dining room table comfortably seats six and there are extra chairs in the master bedroom to seat an additional two guests. Imagine playing board games at the dining table or planning the next day’s excursion in this beautiful part of the world. The eating bar has two stools.

The living room has a sofa bed, TV with DVD player, VCR and a stereo. It opens onto the sunny deck which has patio furniture and a barbeque for those who enjoy outdoor meals. The vaulted ceiling in the living and dining room gives a wonderful light and airy feel to this cottage. The ceiling fan and gas fireplace are there to ensure you are comfortable whatever the weather. Watch our HD TV (cable included) or enjoy our library of videos/DVDs. Curl up with a book in front of the gas fireplace or invite the family to join you in a friendly board game.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor. The master bedroom has its own TV and DVD player and cuddly terry robes are supplied for adult guests. The bed is a very comfortable queen-size and the warm russet and golden colors are carried into the bedrooms. The second bedroom has a double bed. The main bathroom has a tub with a shower, and is supplied with towels.

The loft is set up with very comfortable twin beds. The loft also has a bathroom with shower. For relaxing it has a TV, DVD player, books, games and DVDs. The cottage is also equipped with local telephone and free high speed and secured wireless internet access that is not shared by another cottage.

The complex sports a pool, hot tub, exercise room and the beach is a short ten minute walk away. For beach days, we supply beach chairs, towels, and sand castle building equipment. Adjacent to the complex is Riptide Lagoon Miniature Golf where the kids and young at heart can spend many enjoyable hours.

Also note that we do not charge a cleaning fee unless left overly dirty and we only charge 5% tax. There are no extra charges for additional guests or weekends. Maximum 8 guests in the cottage.

Everything is as described...and more.

We were slightly anxious before we got there.....what if the property isn't as described and portrayed in the pictures? Don't will be happy. We were pleasantly surprised that the property was more than expected. Well equipped, comfortable, clean, quiet and homey. My family thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you Coleen and Marty.

Relaxing Cottage, Perfect Base for Exploring!

  • 5 of 5

All 3 generations enjoyed our stay at Morning Glory Cottage. It has everything you need and more, including books, board games, music, movies, and a kitchen well stocked for cooking (not food though, of course). It is a short drive to a beautiful beach and huge park, close to groceries, restaurants, and not far by car to several local attractions. The pool facilities are clean and a LOTS of fun! The cottage even has pool and beach toys! The owners left treats to make our stay more enjoyable including a blanket, stuffy, and 3 milk bones for our family dog! Personal touches like these make Morning Glory a very enjoyable get-a-way.

Great Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay (2nd), will be back! Thanks for the well appointed cottage and thinking of all the smallest details throughout the cottage, to make the stay feel like home. Really like the addition of twin beds upstairs. Good choice.

Owner's Response: Thank you Monica for taking the time to give us a review. We so appreciate our return guests. We felt that so many of our guests have children who do not like to share beds that single beds would work better in our loft. I am glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again.
