Oasis by the sea
I had a wonderful visit at Family Tides in late August. The cottage is adorable, tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and furniture and the all-important good shower. Ah, and the OUTDOOR shower is heaven!! I spent tons of time on the lovely back deck with its sneak-peek of the ocean, reading and visiting with day-trip friends. I went down to the beach (a 2-minute walk at most) at all different times, and never found it crowded. I explored the area a bit, biking on the Phoenix Bike Trail and walking the Shaw Farm Trail, wandering around Fairhaven center with its beautiful architecture. There's plenty to do -- I kept discovering things every day and ran out of time. I hope to be back next year. Communication with the owner prior to and during my stay could not have been easier and more pleasant. Thank you!
