Guestbook Comments: I find myself daydreaming already about our vacation next year in Cape Cod. My kids still talk about Cape Cod and my 6 yr. old has proclaimed that we will rent your house every summer "forever" because he does not want to go anywhere else. My 2 yr. old daughter has also asked to return to Cape Cod numerous times. I guess we have found our home away from home.

What a vacation home. This home is perfect , with all the amenities of home, from the wonderful backyard for bar b ques to all of the things you could need in the kitchen. Location is perfect , a early morning walk through the large trees in the neighborhood , or a short stroll down to the beach . The local town of Orleans is quite charming and easy to get around , nice people , great food , easy shopping and some fine baseball in the Cape Cod baseball league in season. There was four of us from 45 to 70 years old and we vacation 3 to 4 times per year, this was by far one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations I can remember. We would like to thank the owners for allowing us to share their beautiful and wonderful home, we can't wait to return. THANK -YOU.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful week in this lovely home at the end of June. The house is beautifully decorated and very organized, clean and neat. It was a pleasure to come back to the home at the end of a day of sightseeing or relaxing on the beach. The house is perfectly located...

around the corner from the bay and a short drive through town to the ocean. Our grandchildren loved the bay because it was great for exploring and making friends. We went to both Skaket and Nauset Beach throughout the week. The supermarket and restaurants were near-by. The main street in Orleans had interesting and unique shops.

We hope to come back to this lovely home in a very special place.

Thank you Gladys and Rich for finding my earring.

Comfortable, Clean and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Orleans area for the last 15 years and this house is one of the best that we have rented in that timeframe. I was a little worried about the house having only seen it through pictures since we have had some bad experiences renting places without looking at them. However, as soon as we entered the front door, I know this was a great house. Every room was clean and the decor had a beach theme that you made you feel at peace . The 3 bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of space especially the master bedroom. We loved the outdoor shower. Although we didn't use the Central A/C, it was nice to know that it was available if needed.

We love the Skatet beach area and we could walk to the beach very easily in about 10 minutes. . Most times we sent a car ahead and dropped off our stuff while the rest of our family walked to the best.

This year for the first time we went to the Orleans playhouse to watch Les Miserables which was awesome. I would recommended it as a nice night out.

The owners reached out to us over the winter through email with little bits of information to keep us excited about our upcoming vacation. It was very nice especially after our terrible cold and snowy winter. If there was anything negative for us, it was the charocoal grill instead of the gas grill. We would have prefered to have the ease of the gas rather than bothering with getting the charocoal grill started. However this was more of our preference and wouldn't prevent use from going back to this wonderful house.

If my vacation allows, we will be back next year.

wonderful home in perfect town!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home in mid-Aug. It was perfect for our family of 5. There are 3 bedrooms - one with a king, one with a set of twin bunk beds and a another twin bed and a 3rd BR with 2 twins. Our children loved it too! It is on a quiet street, within walking distance to beautiful Skaket Beach - a perfect beach for us & our young children. When we brought the beach cart with all of our stuff, one of us would drop off with the kids and bring the car back to the house and walk back because our kids are really not old enough to carry all their stuff. But we also walked there with the kids when we didn't have as much stuff to haul. It was about a 10 min stroll with the little ones. The owners keep their home in perfect condition and their pride really shows. Rich even called us early in the week to make sure everything was ok. We had the windows open all the time except one afternoon when we put the AC on because it was a really warm day. There were fans in every room. We loved having a washer dryer there too. It is so bright and sunny! We went to Skaket, Nauset, Marconi and Corporation Beaches. All were so different and we loved them all. The kids also loved the Pirate Adventure cruise in Hyannis. Orleans is the perfect town- tons of restaurants and the best part is that there are 2 bike shops right on the bike trail where we rented bikes with the kids and rode for 2 hours. We also really loved getting ice cream at Sundae School. Zia pizza was so great too. Thank you so much Rich & Gladys - we really loved your home and appreciate the opportunity to rent it from you. It was a vacation we will remember for a long time!

Perfect Family Friendly Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family just enjoyed our first Cape vacation staying at this beautiful beach house. We were very impressed by how tastefully decorated, clean and well-kept it is, and the layout was perfect for our family including 3 young children. The house had all the amenities we are used to at home, including the comfort of central a/c.. The quiet residential area felt safe, yet close enough to the beach and town that we felt centrally located. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive in providing us with information on the house and area activities, as well as answering all our questions. Thank you for helping making our vacation so wonderful!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great summer vacation at the home. This is our 5th summer in Orleans but the 1st time we stayed in a house that felt like home. Our kids loved the bunk beds & outside shower. We loved the beautiful pictures & beach decor throughout the home. Our family loved walking to the beach & exploring. Everything was as described in the listing and very clean & well maintained.

We look forward to renting again next year.

Thanks to the owners for a great vacation!
