"This secluded, beautifully decorated home, with every kitchen amenity and cool breezes and multiple decks should be on everyone's short list if you need a spacious rental home. We didn't miss AC though it is humid. The house is off Route 6 on a very long private road with just one other house. Short drive to town. You can glimpse a house on the hill opposite and at the end of the road if you walk out to see the bay filtered through trees. The large comfy living room has multiple arm chairs and couches for different projects, games or reading-- and soft nautical oil paintings. Three identical rugs connect that with the dining room, and the kitchen is open to let cooks enjoy the company. There is a huge wrap-around deck, again, lots of chairs with pretty cushions to accommodate everyone and still have space for kids to play, grills to cook on. For the night time, when Cape mosquitoes appear, there is a spacious screened in porch, a necessity in summer. The master bedroom has a Queen bed, pillowtop mattress, very comfortable and lovely furniture--a 4-poster bed, an elegant tiger maple dressing table, chest, chairs and lots of space for luggage and personal items. Tiny details reveal any extraordinary eye--alabaster lamps, an art deco lamp. The second bedroom, with the four twin beds also has beautiful objects and furnishings, far beyond what you see elsewhere in what might be called the "dormitory room." Oh, it is a really pretty room. On the first floor TV room, there also lovely pieces picked up probably from travels around the world. All the bathrooms are modern, with marble countertops, lots of space and the main floor powder room is especially attractive. The third bedroom is very large, though in the basement, and as the exterminators had just visited, it had a chemical smell, especially from the adjoining laundry room, accessed from that bedroom. It is probably not a problem when the humidity is low, but not a place to put a guest family or your parents in. However, teens would love the big TV and the multiple day beds and couches, plus the queen bed and all that space. The other point not seen in the pictures is how lovely the landscaping is. There's a vast green lawn with a hedge of blue hydrangeas and rows of yellow roses, also a small fountain. We loved it."
