Review of B. S.'s stay in Jul 2020


Guest Comments: In these trying times of Covid we were dealing with a professional group of people at Cottage Care Rentals and they kept us in touch every step of the way as to whether there would be a rental and what our options were. We cannot thank you enough and we knew that when you deal with people who care about us like this the rental has to be perfect. The cottage met all our expectations and in fact was much more than what the pictures in the ad showed. Thank you to the Cottage Care team and the owner of Cavendish Cove Cottage

CCR Reply: The thanks goes to you for your appreciation and kindness. It is absolutely our pleasure to have helped you and your family find some respite in these trying times.
