Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • SUPERB

    "We heartily endorse all the other reviews of this superb apartment. Provincetown is a stunning village with beautifully preserved homes, great restaurants and entertainment. This rental is in an unbeatable position in a quiet area bang on the water. Access is easy and be prepared, as you come down the side entrance, to be amazed at just how beautiful it is. Those who remember the 80's and a tad earlier will recognise some of the décor, all splendidly arranged in a most appealing way. The kitchen is a knockout - a joy to use and with everything you could possibly need. The local seafood ( lobsters!! and don't miss Wellfleet oysters) is first class and incredibly well priced. The bed is super comfortable, the bathroom very spacious and a comfortable lounge. But THE VIEW! Waking up to stunning dawn vistas and sitting on the deck as the sun goes down is hard to beat. To cap it all off the owner, Barry, is excellent to deal with. He provided detailed responses to our questions (our first time to East Coast USA) and could not have been more helpful. This is a knockout of rental - a real 11/10 - and we feel most privileged to have been able to stay here. Thank you Barry - hope we can make it all the way back there one day."

  • PERFECT Family Retreat

    "We are a family with 3 young kids (ages 9, 6 and 4) and have, in the past several years, rented beach houses in Hawaii and San Diego, so this says A LOT: This vacation was our favorite!!! We loved visiting the small towns at the Cape, like Mashpee and Hyannis, but mostly, we are certain the vacation was extra special because of the property where we called "home" for 7 days. First, it is a house that is well-designed and furnished (not prints hung on walls and cheap furniture like some rental properties, but original artwork, high-end appliances, and custom furniture), so it felt comfortable as soon as we stepped foot inside. The grounds outside the house were full of details that seemed existent only in movie sets -- such as an extensive herb garden, flower garden, large hammock and giant wrap-around deck with plenty of comfortable seating and a top-of-the-line grill. My kids found hours of enjoyment on the super long tree swing and had a great time collecting shells on the beach. One day, they even made a fairy house. The fact that my "city kids" never missed electronics, like their iPads, and was never bored at the house speaks volumes... even when it rained for 2 days! One of my best memories during our week stay was when it rained. When the rain was light, I went outside to pick fresh herbs from the garden and was cooking in the kitchen while my husband played Monopoly in the livingroom with the kids. Because there was a large deck, we were able to leave the windows and doors open, so we could enjoy the sounds of the rain. All I heard was music, the rhythmic sounds of the rain, and laughter. It was so tranquil and... well, perfect! I will never forget our retreat on Bassett Island. My husband's favorite part of the property was having access to all the boats. He took the kids out on their first boat rides, kayaks and inner tube. The squeals of delight and looks on my children's faces are priceless. Lastly, it was a pleasure working with Rod and Murphy who own the property and Peter who is the Property Manager (and built the house!!!) Working with them was easy and they were extremely responsive to all my questions. It was like working with friends. If we didn't live clear across the country, we would come out every year and rent this gem of a property. It is clear to me that they put a lot of love and care into designing this house and outdoor area. It deserves only the best renters who will love and care for it too."

  • Little Slice of Heaven

    "This comfy, clean and charming home offers all you need for a glorious holiday. We loved the quiet street and easy beach access. Matt is very easy to communicate with and was very helpful in suggesting daily activities. Our group of 4 ladies felt safe and at home in this great neighborhood. Wehighly recommend this property for girls trips, couples or young families."

  • Best R & R ever~

    "We have lived many wonderful places, visited some of the finest retreats and hotels, been on some of the greatest excursions...this was the best R & R ever. We didn't want to leave. Sitting out of the deck, watching nature with a front row seat, was one of the best highlights. If you are looking for frills this may not be your place, but if you are looking for rest, peace & quiet, carefree days and nights...this is it! Overlook what it doesn't have because it makes up for all that it does."

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.
