"My wife and I took a September vacation at this property and were pleased with the accommodations and the friendly neighbors. The handyman came right over to introduce himself and just couldn't have been nicer. The street is quiet, which made for a great night's sleep. The weather was beautiful for our stay, so we got to enjoy the beaches in September (the water was surprisingly warm).
The owners were helpful in recommending restaurants they though we would like, and were prompt with answering our questions (mostly about hooking up to WiFi). Nice cute house. It was tough to leave."

"Our family of 3 just wrapped up a nice visit to this Cape Cod cottage. It really looks just like the pics in the profile - and what you don't see is great, too. There were tons of little niceties in almost every nook - kites, sand toys, beach chairs, coolers, umbrella, emergency rain ponchos, toiletries, first aid kit, etc. We walked in and enjoyed the welcome basket and chalkboard welcome message. Our five-year-old son loved his room with all the stuffed sea animals and pirate's treasure chest waiting for him. There was a great bookshelf that included great books and games for us to enjoy during our stay as well. We walked down the block to the beach several times - low tide was great for exploring with the nets that were provided by the cottage owners.
We also took advantage of the proximity to the marina and did a whale watch trip - spotting about 12 humpback whales - and enjoyed walking over to Osterville Fish Too to enjoy a classic fish shack-type lunch. (We bought live lobsters there, too, and used the in-cottage lobster pot to cook them for dinner.) The owner had shared a discount deal on LivingSocial.com with us - so we were able to save about 50% on that sightseeing trip. The location of this cottage is ideal to explore the entire Cape - and I liked that we didn't have to drive forever to get there the first day.
All in all, great trip and cute place. I liked staying somewhere that had been featured in This Old House magazine. It was like they did what I would like to do someday in transforming the place into something really quaint."

"This house was terrific - just perfect for our family of 5. It is much bigger than looks on the pictures. The walk to the private beach is 3 minutes, a very easy one even for our 3-year old. The water is also the warmest we had ever experienced on the Cape in any location. We also walked with the kids to the marina with all the restaurants and ferries, and to the Main Street, everything is so close, so nice not to drive. The decor of the house is also spectacular, the owner thought through so many things. The owner is very generous, you don't need to bring anything to the house - the towels, beach toys, linens, beach chairs, everything is in abundance there. The owner is very easy to deal with also. We LOVED this property and hope to return."
