excellent vacation home!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this location the last 4 years and have loved each and every visit. The house is charming and extremely well maintained. By far the best location in Yarmouth for the money. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet visit to the Cape. Thanks again and we're looking forward to another visit later this year!!!!!!

Lovely, comfy, convenient and much more…

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about the house and the owners. I’ve rented other houses in the Cape area but this impressed me the most. Our family of five booked it for one week and since we like to travel we were extremely happy with the location. Hyannis, Plymouth, Provincetown and the ferry service to Islands just a short driving distance away. Shopping and all the recreational activities nearby. Having enough bikes for every one of us was a nice touch. We took them for a spin almost every morning and night. Before our arrival I was concerned with A/Cs but both were freezing cold. Another plus was having washing/drying machines. Basically, I can go on and on about the positives. Overall, the house is well maintained with all you need and much more. There is no need to bring anything other than your clothes and lots of cash.

Of course, this would not be possible without such friendly and responsive owners, Marty and Bernadette. They were there to quickly answer all our questions and provide all the instructions from start to finish.

Overall, we were very happy with a house and the service. We definitely hope to be back some day. Thinking back, my only regret was not booking the house for two weeks or longer, but hey, there is always next time. ))

Thank you Marty and Bernadette

Best Regards,

Max and Co.

Owner's Response: Wow - very nice review. Thank you for taking time to wright a review. Always pleased to know when travelers are more than happy after they arrive at our home. Please return again to Cape Cod and book with us early. Not many weeks are available because people like to reserve the same dates for the next year.

Amazing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this fantastic holiday home as a base for our first visit to Cape Cod, after spending a few days in New York. Between making the booking and arriving at the home, we found the owners very helpful and friendly. On arrival, we found a well-maintained and very clean home from home in a very quiet location, yet within easy reach of restaurants, shops, beaches and other attractions. Travelling from the United Kingdom, it was a real bonus to be able to use the beach furniture, toys and towels that the owners provided. The bicycles were also made good use of - cycling along the quiet roads around the South Yarmouth area and seeing so many amazing properties was quite something. The garden was an excellent venue for early evening barbecues. The home is a perfect location for anyone visiting Cape Cod, with easy access to many beaches and small towns. The highlights of our trip have to be the whale watching, taking in a baseball game at the local school and watching the movie Jaws on the beach. All in all, we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this property to families and couples who are looking to stay in a property that feels more like a home than the typical standard rental accommodation. A massive thank you to the owners for making our stay so special. The Davies Family, Warrington, United Kingdom

Lovely property and very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Martin and Bernadette's lovely house. Having travelled from the UK with 2 children, it was a huge help to have linens and towels included in the rental, and when we arrived the children were overjoyed to find body boards, buckets, spades, a fishing net and other beach 'essentials' which made the holiday even better.

The house is very well provisioned with all the little things that help to make a holiday away from home that much easier, like washing powder, kitchen necessities like oil, condiments etc.

We had lovely trips out to Chatham (go to the fish pier just after midday to see the fishing boats come in and the seals waiting for any surplus, and then have the freshest fish and chips for lunch!) and Hyannis. We would recommend Grays Beach at Yarmouthport - it's only about a 10 minute drive from the house, has free parking (which is quite rare), lifeguards and the most beautiful sand flats. The children spent many happy hours body boarding and crabbing.

Thank you for providing the setting for a fantastic holiday, and for the champagne which was a lovely welcoming gift.

Owner's Response: We have been rented our home for many years and learned it is important to provide everything needed to make, as you say, "holiday" enjoyable. Thank you for this very nice report. You did get to do a lot of different things while on the Cape. Since our home is 'Mid Cape" it is near everything the Cape has to offer for young and old. Thanks again for this review and please contact us when you return to the USA.

Lovely stay on the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week at this location and had a wonderful relaxing time. From the beginning, Marty and Bernadette were responsive, timely, and helpful with all inquiries including the return of the cleaning deposit. This was a great home for the 6 of us to rent. The house was roomy, clean, organized, and comfortable. As stated in the description, it had everything listed, and flying in from California that was a key reason why we chose this property. Even your basic condiments for cooking were provided, things you might take for granted like salt and pepper (we've rented places before where even those aren't provided). Linens, towels, beach towels, etc. all clean, plentiful, and neatly organized. Everything was in good working order, from all the appliances to the bbq and the bikes which we all used. The South Yarmouth location was centrally located for all that we wanted to do. Plenty of beaches, shopping, mini golf, and ice cream places close by. The one big plus for me was that the location was just east enough of the major traffic and crowds of West Yarmouth/Hyannis. What can I say about the decor... as mentioned in other reviews, very charming and smartly decorated! We brought my 70+ yr. old parents with us who had never been to Cape Cod before and when they wanted just to stay back and relax and not go somewhere with us, they felt at "home".

Thank you again Marty and Bernadette for helping make our vacation wonderful and memorable!

Owner's Response: Looks like you all had a good vacation. When anyone flies from California to Cape Cod we like to make sure they have everything needed when they arrive to our home. Many rental homes on Cape Cod do not supply linens, sheets, pillows etc. Anyone who rents our home on Cape Cod will not have to bring anything; except their clothes and money. Thanks again for the nice review.

ADORABLE Cape Cod house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Marty and Bernadette,

We had an absolutely amazing vacation! I'm so sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner, it's just been hectic since getting back and into the swing of things. Coming down from my vacation high :( I have to say that we were so pleased with everything! The house was just adorable! It was spotless and so clean, organized and decorated so lovely! My mom fell in love with it ( didn't want to leave) and we all loved the decor so much! It is most definitely the perfect Cape Cod house for charming and full of character....and had everything we could want to make our vacation comfortable and relaxing! Having the use of beach chairs, umbrella and bucket and boogie board for my granddaughter were really and added plus! You really thought of everything! Oh! And the bottle of champagne on arrival was also a nice added touch...thank you :) The weather was gorgeous every day, and we really enjoyed the beaches in W. Dennis...Mayflower and Chapin are our favorites :) The location of the house was perfect for many reasons.... Close to family in Yarmouth, shopping, supermarket, beautiful beaches, restaurants, mini golf, great central location for travel to upper and lower Cape....we went to PTown one day and Falmouth another day which were both really fun...saw the fireworks in Hyannis on the Fourth and walked down Main much to do and see...could have stayed at least another 2 more weeks!! Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place to vacation! We hope to get back to Cape Cod soon ....and we would love to stay at the house again when we do :) I would definitely recommend staying in a home like this as opposed to a hotel for sure! Thanks again for your hospitality, it was very much appreciated.

Owner's Response: What a nice review of your stay at our home. Will put it at the top of our list. Please visit the Cape again. Bernadette has experience at interior decorating and is a clean freak. We rent Sunday to Sunday to give our cleaning person extra time to make ready for next guests. Most rentals on Cape Cod are Saturday to Saturday and cleaning people have to do a rush job. You are welcome to stay again and anytime, since our home is completely furnished for extended visits in winter. Marty & Bernadette
