About Patricia Sculthorpe
After years of renting this property we took the plunge and bought a half share with our cousin who was looking to share expenses and time at the property. We use it ourselves for most of the summer, but like to share it with others when we are not there, to help defray operating costs. The cottage is well-loved, very comfortable but not fancy. We are avid cooks so there is everything you need to prepare delicious meals for when you don't feel like eating out. Great for families, couples looking for a getaway, or groups of friends who don't want to be in town or surrounded by lots of people. A great place to unwind and drink in the views and the ocean air.
Patricia Sculthorpe purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Patricia Sculthorpe chose Madequecham
We are biased of course, but we think this is the best place on the whole island. Though we are close to the airport, we are not on the flight paths, so airport noise is never a problem. There are not many cottages along this stretch of beach, so it is always quiet and we never tire of the beauty of the beach and the moors, or of the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep at night. In less than 15 minutes we can be downtown enjoying all that is on offer there, including world class restaurants, exciting cultural activities, and great shopping. But even when the island is at its very busiest, we can always escape to the quiet and peace of the cottage. We have no Wifi and this contributes to the feeling of disconnectedness and back to nature that we cherish.
What makes this Cottage unique
We don't believe there is any other property on the island that is right on the ocean that offers the same value. Our cottage is not the Four Seasons, but it is beautifully laid out, filled with light and good memories, and and virtually everyone who has been here agrees it is a slice of heaven.
