  • GREAT HOUSE, LOCATION AND OWNERS

    "Rented the main house for 2 weeks in June and had a wonderful time. Open and airy upstairs level (great room in center, master bedroom off one end, screen porch off the other) is even nicer than photos suggested. Comfortable bedroom suite downstairs. Private and quiet with great views. 1 mile from Truro center, 5 minutes from magnificent ocean beach, and 15 minutes from Provincetown. House is well maintained, with owners who are well organized and receptive to questions or requests We have rented many vacation homes over the years and feel this was among the very best. The next time we vacation on Cape Cod, we will definitely try to rent it again."

  • Perfection in Sconset!

    "We have been going to Nantucket for almost 20 years and had never stayed more than a night in Sconset. But this was a real treat. The house was in absolutly perfect condition, with a great feel and was perfect for our family of four. Had we known it was as big and roomy as it was, we could have rather easily fit a second family of four with us! There are 2 sets of bunk beds for the kids in the basement which they loved. Walking distance to the Sconset General Store and the beach. made mornings that much better. Certainly better than the craziness in town. One of our best trips yet!!! And the owner was a pleasure to deal with too!"
