                                                            This is my 12th or 13th year at Idle Time. Terri and Ed are the most wonderful couple to know, and they could not be more accommodating! Everything is so close, restaurants, shopping, miniature golf, just everything you would want for a vacation. And the cottage itself is immaculate and spacious for your family to enjoy!. The views from the new upstairs bedrooms are breathtaking. Do not hesitate to stay at Idle Time; you will enjoy every moment of your stay!

                                                            the perfect vacation

                                                            We have stayed many place at the cape over the past several years but we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation spot. The views are breathtaking and the cottage is spectacular. You are close to so many amenities and restaurants. We chose to cook in many nights because it was so nice to be there with the sunsets. The cottage was so clean and we had the pleasure of meeting Terri and her husband. What wonderful people! Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you next year!......Mary Ellen and Dave

                                                            The owners, the view, the access to everything!!

                                                            Reviewer: Judi Smith From: Millbury, MA

                                                            Most rentals are judged by the surroundings, # of bedrooms, etc. Our choice was taken from the wonderful past remarks/reviews about the owners. They were wonderful to deal with & all their effort in having & keeping this lovely cottage is worth the price. ON THE WATER!

                                                            It was all that was advertised & more. The cottage has some lovely recent work & the coziness of the den with fireplace, & comfy couches is so welcoming. We were very happy at Idle Time & found the pricing appropriate to the offerings. Plus, the location is close to a variety of restaurants, ferries, great family "play areas" and oh, don't forget THE VIEW!!! We would definitely go back AND recommend to friends!

                                                            Idle Time is the BEST!

                                                            This is my 9th or 10th year at Idle Time, and it just keeps getting better. Terri and Ed have become my friends and they are the best! This home is perfect for enjoying all the Cape has to offer. The incredible views from the deck just can't be beat! Getting ready to leave with great sadness but anticipating next year already!

                                                            Great family home by the beach

                                                            Just like home, only better! The views from the patio and lower deck are spectacular, and the convenience in walking to the beach can't be beat. Terri and Ed are lovely and so helpful! Our daughters love the newly renovated upstairs bedrooms and baths. Our 8th year coming to the Cape and we'll be back again next year. Fabulous home!

                                                            The Perfect Yarmouth Stay

                                                            This was my very first visit to Cape Cod, and I can't imagine it gets much better than this home. Three of us shared this beautifully renovated house for almost six days and, between the breeze, the view, and the charming little beach just steps away, we were completely spoiled. The property was well-maintained, the central air conditioning was definitely a plus, and I can't wait to come back in just a few short weeks.

                                                            Shopping, restaurants, golf, and beaches are all located minutes away. Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod Airport are located within three miles.
