Eastham house description

The house sits on a slight knoll with a large front yard dominated by shrubbery. The rear of the property is your usual sandy mixture Cape lawn - ideal for playing or simply lying out in the shade of the many locust trees, which also appear to be a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.
We are within easy reach of Fort Hill, a popular spot for an ocean sunrise and Rock Harbour for its famous sunsets. The bike trail, which meanders through much of the Cape, can be accessed 1,5 km from the house and it will take you right through to Coast Guard Beach and all the way to Marconi Beach or, in the opposite direction, to Orleans, Brewster and Dennis - a pleasurable and safe way of travel.We have 2 first class bikes there for you to use but you need to bring your own helmuts.
The house is situated so that alternate roads can be used to avoid the highly traveled Route 6.

rental period: The calendar may read otherwise but the rental periods are normally Saturday to Saturday unless other arrangements have been made. It will be priced accordingly. Check-out time is between 11:30 -12:00 noon check in time is 3pm.The check out time is crucial for the cleaners. It's so hard to find reliable people who maintain the highest standards. So please abide by the check- out time.
I'm sorry to say pets will have to have other arrangements made for them .There are various kennels that can make your animals comfortable and are within easy reach. Other guests must and should be considered. .We all love our furry friends and will do everything to make them feel as comfortable as possible.
There is an ash tray on the deck railing for your use outside. I apologize for relegating you to the deck but that's the way it is today. We have to be considerate of others.

The Cape can be even more charming in the late summer and early fall, as most of the tourists have left. This is an ideal time to experience the true beauty of what Cape Cod really is..

For those few who want to take the time to drive down and view the house, we encourage you to do so. Arrangements can be made for you .Just let me know. It s always good to actually see first hand the house you're going to rent.So many people dont'
Choosing a holiday house doesn't have to be a hassle.Just look for good value. It pays off in spades.
For a number of years now I've personally spoken to all my renters beforehand so that we have a better understanding of one another. It has worked out very well for it gives you a chance to ask questions about things that was not in the website. It affords us an opportunity to acquaint ourselves with one another
I apologize for the necessity of the security deposit but unfortunately it's impossible to work around it. Again,It's not deposited but held until the house is cleared and then mailed back smartly.

                      Car: Necessary

                      The town of Eastham is perfectly located on the Lower Cape for you to enjoy both the bayside and National Seashore beaches. Cape Cod is attractive throughout the year because of its uniqueness. However, if you are in search of tranquillity and solitude September and October are ideal months to visit. Whether it 's the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Provincetown, the raw beauty of Truro, the art galleries of Wellfleet, the beach walks of Orleans and Eastham or the exquisite charm of Chatham the Lower Cape is something to be experienced more than once in your lifetime.

                      Other Activities: bird watching, beach combing

                      Golf: The area is rich with golfing opportunities and, with the exception of weekends, Tee-Times are easily available. For a unique golf experience we recommend the links course in Truro, the oldest of its kind in the USA.

                      Those who wish to obtain an Eastham beach pass can save money. Normally, day parking is $15.00. A weekly pass is $60.00. Two weeks is about $90.00. You can check with the Town Hall (508-240 5974). It's certainly worth a call. They send the pass out to you. It can all be done online. As far as the National Seashore goes I think they also start charging on June 28th through Labor Day. That you're going to have to look into. The Eastham beach passes only apply to the bayside beaches.

                      Those interested enquiries will be asked when would be a good time for me to telephone.This serves a dual purpose : one,it gives you a chance to asked any questions you may have beyond the website. Secondly, it gives us the opportunity to get to know one another on a more personal basis. Everything said, wouldn't you want to know the people renting your house?


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: Growing up,and spending Summer vacations on the Cape made it so natural to purchase the house there. We look forward to opening the house in May and regret the task of closing it in October. We find it surprising that so many families opt for the high season in the summer. The off season gives people a chance to enjoy the tranquility and solitude of an uninterrupted beach stroll and the other autumn. I grew up near Boston, went to college there, and upon earning my degree I found myself reporting to the Boston Army Base for induction.Yes, America used to draft - not a pleasant time to come of age. Luckily I got orders for Germany when the majority weren't nearly so fortunate . Little did I know how it would change my life forever. Having been taken in by the country I found myself being drawn back two years later. It was in Heidelberg,the medeival home of Germany's oldest university and the setting for the Student Prince, where I met my wife. The memories of our first few years play out like a fairy tale. A more romantic setting could not be imagined. It would be hard not to be taken in by its old world charm. Even today, many years later, we still think fondly of our earlier days there. When asked by Americans then,' When are you going home?` I'd answer,` Well, I already am` A decision never regretted. Wanting to keep our ties with Boston we bought Brenda Lane, for it was practical at the time and the perfect house for us. Our plan was to change just about everything over the next fifteen years and we're right on schedule. The only things remaining from the early days are a classic Cape couch from the forties and a dining room set that fits in beautifully. We've presently renewed the upstairs bathroom to make it safer and more spacious. .As it turned out it was the right house then and is even a better house now. We hope the families driving a 150 miles enjoy our house as much as we do traveling 3500 miles.

                      Why the Owner Chose Eastham:
                      Since it's the dream of every kid from Boston to one day own a home on Cape Cod this came naturally to seek out one there. This was the third house we looked at and we knew from the get- go it was the one. Sitting up on the knoll with a huge expanse of land twice as much as any other house on the street (only eight), the cathedral ceiling opening up the whole downstairs - it just seemed right. We love working in the garden in the spring ,whipping everything into shape. It seems with each passing year it takes longer and longer .What used to take three days now takes six,( I'm down to half days) but it still fun. Helga has been at the house a total of 6 months in the last fifteen years. She'll be able to spend more time there starting September, 2014.( she'll be taking an early retirement ). Not that we would ever come in the high season, We'll leave that to families who cannot come at any other time and who can brave the crowds and everything that goes with it. My only regret about the house is that We didn't buy it fifteen years earlier.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      There is much to be said of the Lower Cape.To experience it, it will forever draw you back. It's almost like having all of the wonders of nature to yourself no matter how many others you're sharing it with. .As far as the house goes there is nothing special or unique about it. It's like thousands of other Cape houses built in the late Eighties, except this one belongs to us. The house and what's in it reflect our taste and our lifestyle and we hope that our visitors will feel as comfortable there as we do. It's too bad famiies today can't find the time to have the experience of that special day of hunting for their perfect summer house. If I had to choose my favorite childhood memories those would top the list,and I thank my parents who made those summers possible.
