I found this place quite by accident. I have been needing a vacation of sorts for quite a while now, and I found some time to finally do this. Nothing recharges me more than time at the coast but I did not want to spend money on a hotel this time. finding your site with all the properties was a blessing. I chose Blue Fish due to the ecclectic color patterns throughout the house - all very bright and cheerful. There were 3 on this vacation, my husband, one of my daughters, and myself - we all needed this badly. This place was EVERYTHING I was looking for in relaxation. The fireplace was great and cozy as was the couch. We all curled up with a blanket at various times with our coffee or tea looking out at the waves. We cooked many of our meals there - oysters, clams, crab - and for us the kitchen was good. I agree that next time I will bring more of my own basics - butter, seasonings, pan spray, but I was happy and made due with what we had. I had to laugh at the ongoing toaster debacle. According to comments a toaster had recently been placed there, however there is not a toaster to be found. This is to let you know that if a toaster had been placed there, it once again is AWOL.
We enjoyed walks at the beach, time in Westport and Seabrook, coffee at the coffee shop, a great storm-in which the power sent out and it was DARK! We were grateful for the candles we found and loved listening to the rain, wind and waves that night. The deck is perfect for lounging and having coffee or wine and just doing nothing.
The one thing that I would have changed there was the power washing that happened to take place during our stay. It was our first morning there (and the only sunny day) and I wanted to have coffee on the deck. However, someone had scheduled power washing of the sidewalks, fences and buildings to happen beginning about 9 or 930am. While I understand about needing to maintenance and doing it in good weather, I was not happy about the timing of this at all. It went on all morning and I could not go out and sit due to all the noise. I did ask the groundskeeper how long it would be going on and he said he was scheduled to be there the next few days or until it was done.
I rented this house for quiet and relaxation due to some ongoing family situations with my elderly mother. A loud power washer was not in my plans. I asked him If they could please start later the next day, so I could have some morning time on the deck. He said he would try. (It turned out to be a moot point as the weather turned the next day. I went out and sat with my coffee and a blanket, still loving every minute of it). He offered to stop power washing when I went out to speak with him, but I told him we were headed into Westport for the day, so he had the whole day to do the task. I hope he was able to finish. Might I suggest, that if you are needing to do projects like this, you schedule them when no guests are there, or make the property unavailable when things like this need to take place.
Please do not misunderstand me, we LOVED our time at Blue Fish and plan to go again. With the exception of the power washing, this was everything I was looking for . Thank you for this great experience.
For anyone looking for a place to relax, this place was amazing. You will not be disappointed. Can't wait to go back!
Manager response:

We apologize for the noise of the power washing and how this affected your morning time on the deck. We have passed your feedback to our local staff to make sure guests are informed in advance if there is any maintenance scheduled for the home. We look forward to hosting you again!

Quaint and unpretentious. Loved the beach and the espresso place next door. Our friends rented Sea Perch at the same time so we could vacation together and still be socially distant. A win!
Ron E. Jan 2021
Quaint fabulous location

We enjoyed our three night stay and would rent this cabin again. It has a sunny living/dining room with south facing windows and two comfortable bedrooms. We especially appreciated the deck on the south side, out of the wind, where were able have a socially distanced evening visit with friends. The place was generally clean and uncluttered, although there was some dog hair on the floor and rugs, so might not work for guests with allergies.

Blue Fish cottage was just what we needed for our 3 night stay. Nothing extravagant, but everything we needed to be comfortable. Plenty of towels, kitchen was stocked, (except no toaster) and everything was clean!
Cindy E. Sep 2020
Our stay at Blue fish cottage was nice. We had a view of the water and could hear the waves. The deck was a nice place to enjoy coffee in the morning or dinner in the evening. Very glad we brought our own chairs. There was only one deck chair.
We liked its central location to all the places we wanted to visit. The cottage was clean and the right size for two people. It had enough towels etc. The kitchen was stocked well but most of the pots and pans need to be replaced as does the silverware and knives- they are not sharp. There is no toaster. We had to live out of our suitcase because all storage was used for old odds and ends. The furniture was ok. The lounge chair looks more comfortable then it is. The couch was comfortable but we covered it because its white. There was a good variety of videos to watch as well as tv. There are books and board games too. Over all we had a very nice stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Cindy! We are sorry for the issues you experienced and would like to let you know we have added two new deck chairs and a toaster, and we will be updating the kitchenware. We hope to see you again!

Seriously, it’s a 3-minute walk to the beach, a 30-second walk to the only mini mart in town (go through the alley) and a 10-second walk to the only bakery/coffee shop. The 4 star rating is for the slight lack of furnishings: missing couch cushion cover, no toaster, no matches or lighter and no explicit instructions as to where the propane tank for the grill is located (it’s hidden so locals don’t steal it). Otherwise, beds are good, kitchen stocked and WiFi comes in at 25 MB download speed.
Manager response:
Hi, Azizi! We are so glad you enjoyed the wonderful location of Blue Fish and do apologize for the issues you experienced. A new grill has been installed, and we are happy to direct guests to the propane if they cannot locate it. The toaster has been replaced. Thank you!
Rachel N. Jun 2020
My elderly mother and I spent two days at the Blue Fish and enjoyed ourselves so much! The house was immaculate and comfortable and super close to everything. We slept so well both nights and loved sitting out on the deck looking at the beach. Thank you for an amazing getaway!
Julia L. Jun 2020
The house was a great location to be able to walk to the beach and watch sunsets from the deck. However, we arrived and the couch cushions were missing the covers so we had to sit on blankets. The kitchen garbage still had food scrapes in it from the last guest. An outlet was missing a cover which was a concern with having a 1 year old in the house We don’t expect a place to be babyproofed but figured it would have basic safety features. The bathroom light fixture was missing a bulb. We brought ribs to bbq for Father’s Day and double checked the reservation to make sure there was one before planning meals. However, when we got there the shared bbq in the courtyard was rusted and the heat shields were broken, plus it didn’t have a propane tank. We did find a second bbq near the other building but it was very dirty and didn’t have a propane tank either so needless to say, we were unable to bbq.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Julia. We are so happy you enjoyed the location and we appreciate you sharing your feedback! We apologize for the condition of the home. We are pleased to note the couch covers have been replaced, a cover has been put on the outlet, and the grill has been cleaned and propane replaced. We hope to have the chance to host you again in the future!

The location of bluefish is great. Unfortunately, that's pretty much the only positive. The communication from vacasa was bad, we got a text saying text this number with complaints before we arrived. I asked a question about beach towels in the house and never got a response. I tried calling the number that had texted me as well as the number in the binder multiple times throughout our stay as we found unsatisfactory parts of the home. I never was contacted back. When we arrived, we noticed that the couch didn't have any covers on the cushions. The couch was bare. We are assuming they were taken off to get washed and were not replaced. Kind of gross and weird to sit on a couch without any coverings. Shortly after we arrived, we noticed that there were ants crawling all over the kitchen. They appeared to be coming in from the window seal. We were afraid to store our food in the kitchen, and ended up storing it in our car. In addition to these problems, we noticed that the television was having problems, it kept cutting in and out. When we investigated we found that one of the cables was pretty frayed and looked dangerous. Last, one of the outlets was missing an outlet covering. This is not a huge deal but we have a 2-year-old who's very curious and kept wanting to investigate this. It did not feel safe. Overall, the home style dirty and the communication was non-existent. We will not stay at this property again. I do not recommend this property, especially not to families.
Manager response:
Hi Ruth, thank you for your review. We apologize for the delays in communications. We have improved our systems and added more team members to better assist guests. We are available 24 hours a day to help address any questions or concerns. We appreciate your feedback about the home and we hope to impress you in the future.

Very comfortable, clean, conveniently located and has the best lical radio station!!!
Jaleh S. Mar 2020
I stayed here for 4 days, three nights in March. The location is so perfect. It’s a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 1 minute walk to the coffee shop. What a perfect situation. The house itself is very cute. It is in good condition and has no major issues. The house is pet friendly and I did see pet hair all over the couch and on the floor and in corners. So if you have pet allergies, this is not the place for you. The kitchen has all the equipment you need to cook basic meals. Bring your own spices. Great beach house!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Jaleh. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

We loved the location. We were able to walk right down to the beach and to the little store on the corner. We could see the beach from the main living area.
Gary N. Oct 2019
Kitchen worked well (except no small bowls). Beds were comfortable. Sunny living space. Close parking space. Excellent coffee shop very nearby.
Manager response:
Hi Gary, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We hope to host you again soon.

Just steps from the dunes. The cabin is wonderful. We particularly love the jack and jill bath that lets me escape my husband's snoring. Really nice location.
Judy T. Aug 2019
We have been staying in these cottages for over 15 years. They have never disappointed us. It is perfect to get to and see the ocean. It's great to be able to listen to the ocean as you fall asleep and wake up.
Diane L. Aug 2019
Loved location, good equipped kitchen, and nice deck.
ELIZABETH O. Jul 2019
Great location and wonderful view of the ocean, even from inside the house. The nearby grocery store market came in handy a few times for additional food items we needed and even beach towels that we forgot to bring with us.

One thing to keep in mind is that there are no fans and no AC in the house, so it could get pretty warm during the hottest days of the year. We had wonderful temperatures in early July, fairly warm during the days and cool at nights. And sleeping with the windows open provided a nice cool breeze, so no issues with that for us.

Also, the unit is very tiny, but the nice front deck makes up for extra living space, so we were comfortable in the available room. Although, 4 people seated at the dinner table was a bit of a squeeze.

The following quirks are the reasons for 4 stars instead of 5:
- Only 3 deck chairs for lounging outside.
- Only 2 spoons (the other utensils were sufficient).
- The bathroom tub doesn't drain properly and backs up even during a short shower.
- There was not one single pot holder in the place, so we had to use the only dish towel and one of the bathroom hand towels to pull baked items from the oven.

That said, we had a truly lovely stay here and would gladly return, knowing that we would need to bring some extra things with us from home.
Manager response:
Thank you for the feedback. We have informed the manager about your suggestions. We hope you will stay again soon!
Sally B. Jul 2019
Nice, neat place and dog friendly. Enjoyed the side view of the beach.! Quaint, sweet cottage.
melva l. Jul 2019
I loved the fact that it was peaceful quiet and the cabin was very clean and have lots and lots of stuff to do the beds were the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on in fact I'd like to buy one for my home I'll love to go back
Isaac K. Jun 2019
We had a few issues with the house, but the owner said that they have since fixed them up. Assuming that they were fixed up as the owner said they were,, then I think the house would be good for a low key casual vacation at the beach. Due to the owner responsiveness in saying that they made a few fixes, I'll give it 4 stars.
Phyllis R. Apr 2019
This is an adorable and comfortable little cottage. We enjoyed being there with our dog. It even has an ocean view!
Jenna F. Mar 2019
We love staying at these cottages. We come here for razor clamming weekends and like the proximity to beach access (whether driving or walking). The homes are equipped with everything we need for cooking, towels, bedding etc. They even have a nice selection of DVD and games for our child. We will definitely stay here again!
Darren T. Feb 2019
Our stay during the chocolate festival was wonderful!
We had a minor issue which was quickly resolved by Lindsey, she assisted us quickly and went above and beyond in making us feel welcomed. This will be a place to return to!
Thomas M. Jan 2019
A home clearly loved by the owners. Well equipped kitchen, right amount of space to relax in, and aesthetic features to make our stay A#1.
Michael S. Dec 2018
A cozy two bedroom, simple but complete kitchen, very clean, and very easy access to great clamming beaches. Decent restaurants within a few minutes drive. Good internet, and needed as there is virtually no cell service on that part of the coast....that we could find. All in all - highly recommended.
Jan R. Dec 2018
A girlfriend and I took a much-needed break before all the Christmas hoopla sets in at our homes. Ü This cozy little cottage was perfect for us; separate bedrooms, comfy couches for reading, a quick 3-4 minute walk to the beach. We've already talked about going back.
Kenneth C. Oct 2018
we booked for that cottage for clam dig because of the location. 20 minute drive to Copalis beach and pacific beach access was 3 minutes away. House was clean, beds were comfortable. Wifi internet access was fast and reliable. Partial ocean view and only a block away from a walking beach access.
Theresa D. Oct 2018
Perfect and within walking distance to the beach.
