Barnstable house description

Just a relaxing stroll away from Barnstable Village and scenic Millway beach, this historic home has all of the amenities for a relaxing vacation on beautiful Cape Cod. Awake in the morning to the sounds of songbirds and enjoy breakfast outside on the garden patio. After spending the day exploring the Cape, enjoy the peace and quiet of the large backyard in a hammock or relax with a book in a lounge chair on one of the private back decks. Home-cooked meals can be made in the spacious fully-stocked kitchen or at the BBQ in the back yard. this home offers everything you need so that you can spend your time relaxing and making the most of your stay on Cape Cod.

'My wife and I have rented many houses over the years and while we have usually had positive experiences we could always find a thing or two that the house was missing and/or needed. That is absolutely not the case with this house. It has everything you will need throughout your stay. From the kitchen basics they start you off with: oils/ seasonings/ and every utensil under the sun. To the beach towels, beach chairs and coolers they provide for your stay.
The house itself is beautiful; well decorated and very comfortable to live in. The backyard is very spacious and well maintained. You can tell that owners take pride in their home and are very happy to share it with you.' (2013)

'An absolutely brilliant retreat': 'This property is what you dream of as the perfect get-away! Strategically located in historic Barnstable, it is convenient to the beach and not far from shopping ... The house is perfect in every way, from the remarkable kitchen, to the charming bedrooms (in particular the 2nd floor rear bedroom with balcony onto the backyard), to the living room and airy dining room ... We would not have had SO MUCH FUN had we not had such a beautiful setting to spend our time together!' (2011)


'extremely spacious, clean, and welcoming': 'We were warmly greeted and made to feel at home immediately. The house is extremely spacious, clean, and welcoming as well as completely equipped with everything you might need - including sunscreen! There are so many places to relax (hammocks in the backyard, a lovely deck, huge back yard to sit and relax in) I would highly recommend this property for your vacation.' (2011)

'Beautiful Home - Awesome Location!': 'This beautiful Barnstable home was a perfect vacation choice for my friends and I. The outside had a great backyard for playing wiffleball, enjoying a cookout, or just relaxing in the hammocks. The inside was very clean, big, and cozy; and we loved how all the windows really brightened up the house. The location was perfect; the house was away from it all and provided a good amount of privacy, but at the same time Barnstable Village and Millway Beach were a short walk away, as well as local restaurants, grocery stores, the Cape Cod Mall, and other various beaches were only a five minute drive from the house...'
