Cozy cottage

Nice cozy cottage right at Salisbury center. Perfect for our family of 3!
- Shanda

Hi Shanda, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Love Shack, it is the perfect space to stay when you want to be close to the beach for that fresh sea salt air and the sound of waves. Didn't you love that the beach and other little local shops were just a short walk away from the property? We hope to see you again soon!

Hi Donna, Thank you for your feedback, we are so happy to hear how much you have enjoyed your stay with us at Love Shack. We love how close the property is to the beach, and how you can smell the sea air the moment you walk out! A truly beautiful place to stay if you want to get away to the beach for a little bit. We hope to see you again soon!

Cool spot. Would definitely stay again. Cute little place VERY close to the beach - easy 3 minute walk. Things to know: Gets a little bright in the BR in the morning. Unless you’re an early riser, pack a sleep mask or whatever those things are called. The shower is also a tub which is higher and may be difficult to get in and out for some. Not complaints, just things to know that may be an issue for others. We liked the location a lot. Salisbury Beach itself was apparently happening back in the day. Looks like they are working on revitalizing. Still cool since we prefer a little more low key anyway. Also within easy driving distance of Newburyport, Hampton, Portsmouth and York. We like to hit breweries and there are plenty within a short distance. Stoneface is highly recommended. If you want a cute place to sleep close to the beach, this is it.

Location to the beach and attractions within walking distance--5 min max if you walk slowly!!! Cute getaway spot on the main drag. Clean & Cozy. Futon was less than comfortable but I've yet to find one that is..... We slept 3 --- likely better for 2.

Love Shack is such a lovely little home so close to the water! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. Keep us in mind the next time your travels bring you back up to New England! - Eli / iTrip North Shore

3/5 stars
The cottage was very cute and clean, the place is small but the use of space they have is great. However, I was a little shocked at how cracked the tiles in the entry way and kitchen are. Definitely a hazard and someone could cut their feet. Also as other reviews have noted, the air conditioner in the bedroom does not work. It blows the fan only which is good for air circulation, but when we were there it happened to be during a heatwave and it was still extremely hot in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen despite using the AC in the living room at full blast. We reached out to let them know this and were told that the AC in the living room should be good enough….which clearly it was not as the person staying there. They did bring us batteries right away when i let them know the remote controls weren’t working. As for the issues we had, I understand that the tiles would probably take a bit of time to fix and since this place is usually booked up I understand why they haven’t fixed those yet- but a new AC wall unit seems like a quick fix that would make it a lot more enjoyable if you happen to be there while it’s hot. Still-it was a great place to stay for a quick trip and it’s very close to the boardwalk with lots of fun things to do and a very nice beach. FYI - they are currently doing construction near the boardwalk area so it’s a little tricky to get to the beach right now but still a quick walk. 3.5 Stars

Not bad
5/5 stars
First of all I have to say the name of the place had me ready to reserve: Love Shack! The accommodations are pretty much as pictured. The adjacent houses are pretty close to this one and there is another VRBO rental, Baby Love Shack, right behind this one. We didn't sit out on the deck but no worries - we walked to the beach which is super close to satisfy our outdoor needs. The location is relatively quiet. It is on a main road but not too busy and it quiets down as the day goes on. This place had all of the comforts of home, ALL the comforts. I was surprised at how many housewares were available. It was immaculate. The person(s) who cleans this place does a really good job. The host agency checked in periodically via texts and emails and I thought that was great. The sink had a slow drip in the bathroom. I post this in the hopes that it gets fixed before it becomes a problem. The floor tiles were beautiful but didnt all seem to be set? Some seemed loose. I felt that there weren't enough hangers in the closet as we prefer to hang our clothes versus putting them in the dresser. These were all MINOR issues but I felt worth mentioning. The location is one of the best things about this place. The listing is accurate as far as distance walking to the beach. Aside from the super convenience to the beach, we felt the location was also great for visiting places like Seabrook, NH, Maine (i.e. Portland, Kittery) and other parts of Massachusetts (i.e. Salem and Beverly).

We booked this on vrbo. The nightly rate was super cheap but there were additional fees of $159. You couldn't beat the location. Short walk to the beach. Easy to drive to other areas. We managed to spend a day in Maine and another day in New Hampshire which is not far away. The interior is as the photos show. There was a table and chairs in the deck but the houses are very close together so we didnt sit outside. This place has everything you need for your stay which was great. We probably saved $ on dining out. I would go to again. Despite the additional fees from vrbo, i believe it was still the most reasonable place to stay in Saliabury.

Great Shoulder Season Getaway
5/5 stars
We loved our stay at the Love Shack at Salisbury Beach. The walk to the beach is short enough to carry everything we needed with us straight from the cottage. The western view over the marsh is fantastic at sunset as well. We were also close enough to enjoy downtown Newburyport (10 min drive) and several area rail trails. The customer service and communication from iTrip was a pleasant and unexpected benefit. Questions asked ahead of time were answered within 24hrs. We received detailed check-in instructions twice by email: first when we purchased our stay and again a few days before our check-in date. We then got a quick text the first night making sure we were all settled in. While travel can be stressful these days, iTrip definitely made it significantly less so with clear responsive communication. I could definitely see us coming back here in the future.

The cottage was in a great location and very relaxing. The dryer does not tumble, only heats. No ironing board or hair dryer. Other than those 3 things, I loved everything about the cottage!

It was a perfect setting for a mid week beach getaway. Everything was just as it was listed. The traffic on 1A wasn't so bad and the sunset on the marsh was lovely. Being a 3 minute walk to the ocean is the best part of it all.

The Love Shack is a great, little, beach cottage. It was very clean and comfy. The location was perfect for our weekend plans. Check in was super easy. We were nervous when our flight was delayed and we didn’t arrive until 4 am, but it was easy, with no glitches.
