Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Exactly as advertised - 5 stars

    "Over the years, my family has stayed at several places on Cape Cod, including homes in Brewster. This year we needed a place for my wife and I, my daughter and son-in-law and our two grandsons. This house was perfect! This is easily one of the very best places we have rented. The listing is 100% accurate. The house was spic and span and it is beautifully maintained. All of the appliances (refrigerator, stovetop, oven, washer and dryer, etc.) were exactly as described and all were in perfect working order. Internet access was excellent and the Cable reception and available channels was as good as I have ever had in a rental property. The basement downstairs was an added plus providing a separate area for viewing DVD's or local TV, as well as for playing ping-pong, or just relaxing in a separate quiet area. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet. The location is very near the Cape Cod Rail trail which was a major plus for me. I was able to ride my bike every morning. Also the little beach at the end of the street was very nice. We also spent time at lovely Breakwater beach which is 5 minutes away. Also we spent a day in Provincetown to go whale watching which was wonderful. The owner was very easy to work with and was very helpful with any questions we had. He also provided recommendations that were exactly on target. All in all, everyone had a great time and we highly recommend the Brewster Vacation Getaway."

  • Walker Pond Cape Cod

    "We stayed at the home for an entire week and loved every minute of this place, it had everything you needed, it was very clean and we would highly recommend this rental. Mimi and Scott are wonderful providing the places to go and dine. Backyard was nice and private and we had a many evenings enjoying our view and eating outside on the deck. The kids loved swimming in the nearby ponds and I loved spending time on the beach a short drive away. Cape Cod is a very wonderful place and this home made our stay perfect! Thank you"

  • Can't Wait To Go Back

    "We booked this big house along with cottage on the same property. The house was absolutely amazing, it was incredibly clean and fresh. The amenities in the house were more than I have ever experienced in a weekly rental. The large yard and short walk to a quiet private beach was perfect for our children. We absolutely love Onset, it is the cape without the cape traffic! Can’t wait to get back to this house next summer- already counting the days!"

  • Perfect vacation home

    "I've stayed at Michael's beautiful home for the past two summers and plan a third next year. It really is the perfect vacation home. It is close to the beach, and is just a short walk or bike ride away from downtown. I prefer the location because it is quiet and tranquil, a nice respite from downtown which can be crazy at times, especially during the week of my visit. Michael is a wonderful host and is extremely accommodating!"

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.
