Fodor's Review

When owner Karen Schleifer's aunt Marion Simmons first set eyes on this property, she exclaimed, "Glory be," and that's what the house, frequented by a fashionable 1950s and '60s art and literary crowd, became known as. Nowadays, Glory Be is just as charming. Among the three cottages for rent, the Studio sleeps four comfortably (but is great for a romantic getaway for two). Sunspots and Calypso are small and compact, with covered outdoor terraces for dining. The cottages have fabulous sea views and step access to the sea for swimming.
