Great location. You will need a car.

Cottages is in a nice west end location, south, pretty close to Sandy Point - check if Sandy Point is going to be open when you are there (closes in mid-April for turtle nesting, usually). Next door you will have Sandcastles on the Beach for a close-by restuarant option, up the street a bit you will have the pier and the restaurants and other beaches along Strand Street and further north on 63. You will be right off Route 70 so you will have a pretty easy trip east to C'Sted and the east end beaches and restaurants. Definitely rent a car- a small sedan is fine, no need for a 4WD. We always use Centerline.

Good resources for planning:

Sandy Point will be open by mid-September. Just don't put any umbrellas in the sand or dig around because there are still turtle nests incubating there. We had a big season this year!

Beautiful beach right outside your room. The best sunsets on the island. Relax and enjoy!
