About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 - 7

This spacious, over 1800 sq ft of living space, Cape charmer includes 3 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 full/ twin bunk) and 2 large decks (great for BBQs). A large living room area (20x12) connected with a formal dining area. Kitchen was completely remodeled in 2012! We also added a full bathroom on the first floor.

It's located on a peaceful residential corner with plenty of parking. The house sits on a good size lot, with two decks that you will enjoy in the quiet backyard. We added a fence in the backyard for increased privacy (2013).

When you're ready to explore the area, leave your car behind! Everything is in walking distance! Walk to Main St. where the kids can enjoys bowling, arcades, and ice cream. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to meet everyone's taste buds! Oh, let's not forget the beaches: walking distance to Veteran's, Sea St. and Kalamus Beaches. A beach parking pass is also included! If visiting the Islands is of interest, the ferries are also in walking distance!

Nearby, less than 5 minute drive, are Hyannis Airport, and bus service to Boston and New York.

Catch a Cape Cod Baseball League game! McKeon Field, home of the Hyannis Hawks, is walking distance from the house.

New to our home...: This is our 13th season renting our home. We take great pride in our home and hope you will feel right at home! A few years ago we re-tiled the bathroom floor and shower. We made our three season room into a small playroom. We refinished our hardwood floors. We made the back yard bigger and more beautiful by taking out some bushes and we added some beautiful gardens. We added a fence for more privacy (2012). We repainted one of the bedrooms, the livingroom and tiled around our gas fireplace.

The kitchen was completely remodeled! A full bathroom was added. All plumbing has been updated and a new hot water heater was installed.

Renters have loved sitting on either of our two decks. It is very quiet and relaxing!

Baby proof...: We now have three young children, ages 11, 9 and 3, so the house is now child proof with gates and plug protectors. We will have some baby supplies available for renters.

Perfect for Families

We absolutely loved this property! It was close to walk to many restaurants and entertainment! We rented bikes and rode to the beaches and ferry. The backyard was perfect for grilling and outdoor dining. Thanks for such a wonderful memory.

The Perfect Family House

  • 5 of 5

This charming house was a great set-up. Extensive toy room for the young ones, privacy in the backyard, clean, and centrally located. The owners have made a lot of updates to the house. We walked to the Martha's Vineyard ferry, downtown Hyannis, and the JFK Museum. Teenagers loved the walking distance arcade and bowling alley. Hyannis itself is a very good central location on Cape Cod no matter where you want to spend time along the cape. The owners were easy to work with and helpful.

Comfortable and Spotless Home

  • 5 of 5

I have recenatly returned from a delightful five days spent at this immaculate home with my daughter, son-in-law and 18-month old granddaughter. This was our first time in this region and my daughter was fortunate to have found such a perfect place for us to vacation.

The house is in a lovely, quiet area and at night we walked to town (Main Street) to check out the shops and have homemade ice cream. We dined in town as well as at the harbor which is nearby and quite picturesque. A plus of this rental is the beach pass that entitled us to spend days at Kalmus Beach...lovely.

We barbecued at the house, one night and my only criticism is that the barbecue grill was not adequately cleaned and a small grease fire ensued. There is a small deck off the updated and very well-equipped kitchen where we ate. There is also a formal dining room.

The highlight of the house, for my young grandchild, was the awesome playroom right off the living room. We adults could relax with with wine and cheese and keep our eyes on this delighted child who explored the myriad of toys, books, puzzles, etc.

The house was in pristine condition and there is a dishwasher as well as washer and dryer. All bedrooms have air conditioners as does the formal dining room. The upstairs wooden floors do creak as the house is old. We got used to this pretty quickly and it was not a problem.

We all agreed we would stay here again. It is in an ideal location and is very comfortalble for families with children. The delightful owner provided information about the locale as well as the house and was accessible, if needed.

Comfortable and Well-situated Home

  • 5 of 5

I just spent four delightful days at this very well-appointed and spotless home with my daughter, son-in-law and 18-month old granddaughter. The house is walking distance to Main Street where we went for homemade ice cream at night. A beach pass was provided and the beach was quiet and close by. The highlight for my grandchild was a playroom stocked with books and toys. It was situated right off the living area and the adults could relax while the little one was playing nearby and could be seen.

The harbor is lovely and we gorged ourselves on fresh seafood. There is a small deck off the updated kitchen and we barbecued one night. My only criticism is that the barbecue grill wasn't adequately cleaned and a grease fire was sparked.

We were not expected to launder the bed linens provided and merely had to strip the beds upon leaving. We did use a few towels although we also brought some of our own. A washing machine and dryer were housed in the basement and we popped in a laundry before departing.

The bedrooms were comfortable and each of the three has an airconditioning unit. There is a unit in the formal dining room as well. The house is old and the wooden floors upstairs creak but this didn't pose a significant problem.

We were completely satisfied with this rental property. The owner provided us with much information about the area and was accessible, if we needed her.

great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect location for us. It was 3 blocks to Main st and about a mile to the nearest beach, about a 3 minute drive. It even came with a beach pass, saving us $20 everytime we went there.

We have 2 small kids who loved the calm water at Kalmis Beach. It is very safe. You can literally wade out for a couple hundred feet; very little waves; it made my 4 and 7 year olds very happy to be splashing and swimming all by themselves without needing me to hold on to them. I only needed to be near them, swimming by myself.

Grandma came along for vacation so we had a babysitter at night. That's when the proximity to Main st, with all its sights and attractions, came in handy for mom and dad. The wife and I took a walk all the way up and down Main st every night. So, we all enjoyed the beach everyday, and the adults enjoyed the bars and restaurants every night. We didn't have to worry about drinking too much and having to drive home.

The house itself is a very good size, especially coming from nyc. Its 3 bedrooms are all roomy, each with queen size beds; perfect for a couple, 2 kids, and grandma. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently redone and are also very good sizes. The house came well stocked with toys and videos for little kids, including a new den/playroom; lots of kitchen gear and pots and plates for everything you need to feed your family.

The back deck was a decent size with bbq grill and table to fit 6. We ate outside once a day. The neighborhood is quiet. The only thing that might have been improved was the lack of a driveway. However, there was no problem parking in front or on the side of the house. It seemed like most houses on the block did not have a driveway and everybody just parked right on their front lawn where the driveway would go.

In summary, we had a great time. We've been vacationing on the cape for a long time and have been coming back every year since the kids came along. This was probably the best combination of cost, location, size, and convenience that we've been able to find. Thanks Kristy! Hopefully your house will be available next year when we decide to go back to the cape.

Car: not necessary

Beaches: Kalmus & Veteran's beaches offer plenty of sun, fun, and relaxation. Kalmus is best known for its windsurfing and Veteran's for its shallow, warm water (great for kids-of all ages). Sea St has a view of the Kennedy Complex and is a tad closer.

Main Street: A variety of dining choices such as seafood, classic American, Chinese, and Italian all with a mix of Cape Cod flavor in each dish. We recommend Alberto's, Sea St. Pub, The Roadhouse, and the British Beer Company. After dining, stay for the great night life including, shopping, bowling, arcades and bar hopping!

Also is the JFK Museum and art galleries. Nearby: Cape Cod Melody Tent offers variety of entertainment at an affordable price. Before you hop on a ferry to M.V. or Nan. get a bite at Spanky's, The Black Cat, and/or Baxters.

See a Cape Cod Baseball game! The Hyannis Harbor Hawk's field is in walking distance!
