NOTE: I only accept payments through Venmo or PayPal. I need to charge PayPal payments an extra 3% because that's how much they charge recipients. I cannot under any circumstances receive checks. I cannot receive VRBO payments because they take a ridiculously high percentage. I'm happy to guide and advise luddites on registering for either venmo or paypal.
Renters must sign a rental agreement. To help maintain the house's rate, all renters are required to clean the house to the level found before leaving. All cleaning items are provided. Check out time is 12:00pm to provide enough time for this. All previous renters have agreed to do this and have done an excellent job.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

East Orleans village features ocean coves on three sides. On many nights you can hear the ocean waves crashing at Nauset. You can take walks in many directions taking you to hidden coves or public boat launches or to clam digging areas or to beautiful Nauset Beach.
Take your bike (or rent one) and go on the Cape Cod Bike Trail. Take your kayak (or rent one) and go exploring on a nearby pond or saltwater march. Take your camera and take pictures of many types of birds in the backyard.
Skaket Beach is the best salt water beach for young kids anywhere. At low tide the water goes out a quarter mile leaving many tidal pools and streams for kids to play in and lots of beach space for adults to escape to.
Both Orleans beaches have lifeguards, outdoor showers, restrooms and snack bars.
Enjoy a delightful evening theater experience at the Orleans Playhouse just down the street.
After dinner, go have an ice cream at the nearby Sundae School and take it with you to the Orleans Cardinal's Cape Cod League baseball game 2 miles away (mid June to mid August). You'll think you've entered into a Norman Rockwell painting from 50 years ago.
Or after dinner, go to the Chocolate Sparrow for your favorite coffee drink and a decadent dessert then go down to Skaket Beach and watch a beautiful sunset over Cape Cod Bay.

Why the Owner Chose East Orleans: About six years ago, my sister, Erin and I inherited this home from our father. He and our mother designed it themselves. It was our father's sanctuary that he intended to be our family's first heirloom. We are continuing his tradition of renting it out to responsible and conscientious families and individuals.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home has always had a special, charismatic energy. It is a retreat - a place to get away from the monotony of work and routine. It's just barely hidden by trees and long driveway, yet has great lighting and is very close to stunning Nauset Beach and restaurants.
