Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Beyond expectations!

    "My husband & I looked long & hard for a place to gather with 3 other couples for a week, celebrating my son's wedding. Everyone felt comfortable, loved the space and the fully stocked kitchen. The pictures truly represented the property. Having the backyard and large patio table & chairs were a definite plus! The proximity to the ocean, ferry, Main Street, etc. made quick getaways very easy. We agree that the owners were extremely responsive & helpful. Our first experience with VBRO was awesome! Thank you!"

  • A home away from home in Harwich!

    "Centrally located on the best part of the Cape, this home is perfectly equipped with all the amenities of home, as well as everything you need to enjoy a nice vacation. The living space is clean and comfortable, and is as well furnished as your own house would be. Every detail has been addressed - from the expected things like the kitchen that has any utensil, pot, pan, mug, wine glass, colander, cheese board, bottle opener, etc that you'd ever want, to the unexpected like games for the kids, a fully stocked linen closet, and even a nicely assembled collection of flyers and other propaganda detailing local tourist attractions and restaurants. One of the unexpected surprises was the availability of portable beach chairs and sand pails to take on your trips to the shore! Our family spent 9 days here with grandma and grandpa (and their dog, who was also welcomed by the owner) and had a very pleasurable trip. The home is located off any of the main roads, but routes 28 and 6 are close enough that you're conveniently able to get anywhere on the Cape you want without the hassle of being right on one of the main roads. The house sits on a very quiet street with a well maintained yard, and has a beautiful attached back deck that provided a quiet place to unwind at the end of each day. If you like biking, the bike trail travels just past the back edge of the wooded property and is easily accessible. The owner obviously takes great pride in providing a memorable stay for his guests, and even added small details like a nice bottle of locally produced wine and some beer for our enjoyment. If you can't stand the annoyance of being right in the middle of all the crowds, don't care about being directly ON the beach, and want a relaxing, clean, comfortable house to call home while visiting the Cape, you should give this property a serious look!"

  • Fantastic rental!

    "Very cute house in a residential area about 5 minutes from beaches. Mayflower beach nearby was amazing! We loved staying at this place. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for our family of 4 and a mother-in-law. Loved the giant tub! Owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. Loved that they had all the supplies needed for cooking lobsters. Kitchen was perfect. Great shops & restaurants nearby and a good position mid-Cape for visiting all sorts of places. If we visit the Cape again, I would definitely stay here."

  • Perfect for a family getaway

    "We loved this property! Our hosts could not have been more thoughtful & accommodating. The house feels like a real family place (which it is) and the grounds and little beach feel perfect for relaxing. We rented the whole property including the extra apartment for an extended family including a toddler. Many amenities (boat, bikes, fully equipped kitchen, indoor fireplace, lovely outdoor seating, firepit, chairs to watch the sunrise over the pond...) Everyone agreed it was wonderful, we kept saying what a perfect find all week! It felt 'real', uniquely welcoming. Beautiful location, comfortable accommodations. Taking the pretty way along the shore into Falmouth is recommended. Convenient for exploring further out along the peninsula. Would return in a heartbeat, we felt as if it was ours. I LOVED the moss garden, the little beach overlooking the pond, the bird life and the brick patio."

Cape Cod Travel Tips

When locals talk about Cape Cod, it often sounds like a Dr. Seuss book: Lower cape, upper cape, outer cape, inner cape. While it’s true that each part of the cape has its own unique characteristics, the most important thing to know as a visitor is that Cape Cod offers the freshest seafood and the most perfect, natural escape from the hustle and bustle.

Top Attractions

The biggest draw in Cape Cod is the relaxed lifestyle buttressed by a deep connection with nature.

The Cape Cod National Seashore makes up about 40 miles of seashore on the outer cape - all the way from Provincetown on the upper cape to Chatham on the lower. It includes 68 square miles of woods, lakes, ponds and beaches. Cahoon Hollow Beach in Wellfleet on the Atlantic side is simply beautiful. Come here to relax and grab a drink and some fresh clams at the Beachcomber bar. Marconi Beach, also in Wellfleet, features more crowds but stunning sunsets. Head to the beach at Chatham on the lower cape to tour the quaint Chatham Lighthouse. There are also plenty of bayside beaches in Truro and Provincetown.

As it is situated in a unique coastal and bay ecosystem, Cape Cod has several important wildlife sanctuaries that are great for an educational visit. Schedule in a visit to Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary or Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge in Chatham to learn about the local ecosystem and protection efforts.

What To Do

If you’re on the upper cape, check out the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum for a dose of interesting history. On the inner cape catch a film at the old-timey Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre and grab some ice cream to go with at the nearby Wellfleet Dairy Bar and Grill. Wine-lovers won’t want to miss a visit to the fabulous 5-acre Truro Vineyards where you can sample Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to go where presidents in the past have been, pay a visit to the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Hyannis and then head to Falmouth to take a ride on The Island Queen Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard - a favorite island of presidents through the ages.

Dining and Shopping

It goes without saying that they know how to do seafood right on the cape. If you’re on the upper cape, eat at the The Lobster Pot, a landmark seafood shack in Provincetown, which serves up no-nonsense deliciousness. You’ll have great views of MacMillan Wharf and can delight in the classics like steamed littlenecks, lobster rolls and clam chowder. A more upscale P-town eatery with a stunning view is Fanizzi’s By the Sea, which serves up classics with an Italian twist.

If you’re on the lower or mid cape, delicious meals can be had at Blackfish in Truro, the Chatham Pier Fish Market (where you can also do some seal watching), Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar in Eastham and the delightfully named The Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet.

The hands-down best place for shopping on the Cape is Commercial Street in Provincetown. You can find everything here from upscale boutiques, shops selling artisanal crafts and more funky options like Marine Specialties, Inc. a kooky surplus store, or The Shell Shop, which sells tens of thousands of unique shells.

Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen and appetite in preparation for the perfect Cape Cod vacation.
