Lovely stay in Fairfield
Gerard was very welcoming and extremely responsive without being intrusive. This is a great balancing act. It is a charming cottage that has been elevated so the living area is now at the height of a second story which is quite common for coastal houses. There are window unit air conditioners that worked great when the temperature reached the 90s. I was a bit self conscious at the beach. You must walk between 2 houses across the street to get to a private beach. It felt as though I was sitting in their back yard. However, no one else in my family felt this way. The beach was fantastic for little kids at low tide. They could walk forever without it being over their heads. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots and pans. The beds were very comfortable. Interacting with Alexa was interesting, since I don't own that kind of technology. My frustration was with parking. For most of our stay we had 3 cars. Parking is below the raised kitchen, in between posts and very tight. People in the front seats have a difficult time getting out. My car stuck out a bit into the street. I was with grandchildren, and we took advantage of an outdoor concert and a children's museum besides trips to the beach. Fairfield is a wonderful community. This is a very affordable cottage and a great deal for staying at the beach in Fairfield.
