About Marilyn

As a child, our family vacationed in this charming neighborhood. We were fortunate to be able to purchase the original cottage, which used to stand here, in the late ‘70’s and then re-built our year round home seen here in the early ‘90’s. We spent our summers in the new house when our three kids were young and we now offer to share it with you to enjoy your Cape Cod vacations.

Marilyn purchased this house in 1978

Why Marilyn chose Harwich Port

We love this’s been in our family for 40 years. It’s an easy stroll to the family friendly beach at the end of the road and a quick walk into town for restaurants, bars and shops.

What makes this house unique

We built this home and keep it immaculately clean, well maintained and up to date. Since our home is on a dead end street, it’s quiet- few cars going in or out. When it gets hot and humid, turn on the central AC for a comfortable night’s sleep. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with basics as well as gourmet extras. All sheets and towels (bath & beach) are provided for your convenience. Short walk to the warm waters of Nantucket Sound beaches as well as the charming shops & cafes in the bustling “Port”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week in Harwichport did not disappoint! This adorable house is extremely well appointed with all the comforts of home, and it fit our family of 6 perfectly. The location is ideal -- a short walk to the beach and a short walk to town. We parked our cars and forgot about them for seven days (except for the short ride to the golf course). Our family's reunion/vacation was idyllic, and we can't wait to visit again.

Kind and understanding

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were greatly looking forward to our trip and staying at this property. Near the departure date our daughter became very ill. She and her mother would have to stay behind while my sons and I went on the trip. I thought we can't get our money back so we need to go since that's the world we live in. My wife called the owner and explained our situation. Immediately, she recognized our dilemma and while we had made a commitment we needed to honor she ensured she would do all she could in a short period of time to help us. She immediately posted our week and within a short time secured a new renter. The owner was never anything but kind, gracious and understanding. We look forward to our next trip to Cape Cod and staying at this property.

Great location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

As promised, this was a very comfortable, well-equipped home. The kitchen is really pleasant to use and is roomy and has many staples. We loved the location, an easy walk to both the beach and to shops and restaurants in town. We were there during a quiet week (pre-July 4), so the close proximity of neighbors was not an issue.

Impeccable home, perfect location, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This is not a rental house - this is a HOME. Marilyn and Dan have created a rare opportunity for Cape Cod renters by providing a warm, inviting, immaculate, and tastefully decorated home that is fully furnished with every amenity and updated top to bottom. Not only that, the location/neighborhood is PERFECT: walk to town, walk to beach, on a quiet & safe street. What more can you ask for? Oh wait, that's right - as landlords, they are in close proximity and incredibly wonderful to work with. This one is a no-brainer. Plan your summer stay early - this one starts to book up in December and will be fully booked by the end of January.

Lovely and Comfortable Home in Great Area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this Harwichport house on Columbus Day weekend because it was near the site of a wedding we were attending and because it had everything we needed (including a crib and highchair) for the two of us, our daughter, and our son and daughter-in-law and their baby. We were all very happy with the rental. The house is lovely, well laid out, and nicely decorated, as well as comfortable, immaculately clean, and well-equipped. The kitchen, especially, is unusually well-equipped. And the location is perfect, with short walks to both the village and the beach.

The owners have left a binder with with all the information needed for operating and locating things on the property and with information about the village and nearby restaurants. Included in the binder is a little history of the immediate area, which we found quite interesting. Furthermore, Marilyn is readily available by phone to offer any needed help or advice. We highly recommend this property.

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic for our family of five - two teens and a 10-year-old were each able to enjoy their own room, master was roomy and comfortable. House was incredibly clean and well-appointed, TV's and WiFi worked beautifully. Close to town, easy walk to beach, beautiful neighborhood. We would come back again and again!

Harwichport, Cape Cod is a popular summer get away destination. Located just before the 'elbow' of the Cape, Harwich is perfectly situated....just 30 minutes over the bridges, 15 minutes to Hyannis & 30 minutes to Provincetown. High Speed Nantucket ferry is ½ mile away as are supermarkets, Go-Carts, Trampolines, Library, & Cape Cod League Baseball games. Harwich is located on Nantucket Sound, with miles of white, sandy beaches. Fresh-water ponds abound as well. The 743-acre Long Pond is great for swimming and canoeing.

With four well-protected harbors, Harwich is popular with boaters. Wychmere Harbor is one of the world’s most photographed harbors. In August, Harwichport hosts 'Sails Around the Cape,' a 140-nautical mile boat race that circumnavigates the Cape. For hikers, there are more than 600 acres of conservation land. The Cape Cod Rail Trail runs through town along an abandoned railbed-bikers pass by salt marshes, cranberry bogs, and ponds. Band concerts are Wednesday nights.

Other Activities: Whale Watching, Deep Sea Fishing
