Extremely comfortable and meticulously clean home.
Extremely comfortable and meticulously clean home.
The photos of the house accurately reflected the appearance of the house. It is beautiful, extremely clean, updated, and very comfortable . It was like being in your own home not like being in a rental. We stayed for two weeks with our children and grandchildren. The area is very safe, no noise, and a large backyard for playing games and relaxing. The outdoor shower was the highlight for everyone. Never used the indoor ones. Our only comment regarding the home is that there were lots of tasteful decorating items that we had to put away in order to not worry about them being broken by the grandchildren. I took pictures of where they belonged and returned them to their rightful place when leaving. The owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. His emails were always answered in a timely manner. It is obvious that the family takes great care of their" home away from home". We will be back. I hesitated writing this review because I didn't want anyone else to grab our fab find on the Cape.

Why the Owner Chose Barnstable:
As a child my family vacationed on Cape Cod every year, we stayed in a small cottage called the Mushroom. I learned to swim in the calm waters of the bay and my father’s love of history made the landing of the Pilgrims come to life. My mother was an artist and it was her love of the ethereal light on the Cape that inspired many of the painting in our home. To this day the smell of honey suckle and fresh cut hedges bring me back to my barefoot youth. So it has been a lifelong dream to make the Cape our home. My husband & I love the boundless beauty of Cape Cod. This is a rental house, but to us it is our home and we want to make sure it is comfortable & beautiful for our guests, we are constantly upgrading it and it is filled with our hearts & soul.
