Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is absolutely incredible and we had a fantastic time! I was there with my in-laws who could not get over the location. My in-laws and wife have demanded that I book next years week with you immediately after I return home.

My boys, ages 2 years and 5 years, had a great time on the beach catching crabs, digging holes and building sand castles daily. Daily trips to the go-carts, bumper boats and fish pier went over well too.

Everything you could imagine Cape Cod to be......

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything you could imagine Cape Cod to be. We are from Seattle and in planning our trip, had no idea what to expect or where to go. We got this one right! Harwich Port is centrally located....classic beach community with shops and restaurants just a walk down the beach. The more bustling town of Chatham is a short drive; Provincetown is a fun day trip, just 40 minutes north. Dennis (where the famous/original Cape Cod bracelets are made is only 10 minutes away...check the Eden Hand Arts website for instructions on getting a ticket to stand in line). This home is beautiful and comfortable. Open concept floor plan. Views of the water from every room....great kitchen for making breakfast and dinner (bbq on side of house is great feature!). The photos are beautiful, but it is impossible to truly capture the essence of this place. The homeowners were very accommodating. We can't wait to return. The best kept secret in Cape Cod!

Quintessential Cape Vacation!!! Amazing Location Directly On The Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our June 2016 vacation to this Harwichport home greatly exceeded all expectations!!! The home, the beach, and the views are incredible! We enjoyed a very relaxing week with our 3 month old twins and visiting family and friends. All the three bedrooms have views of the water. The master is super spacious with a large deck as well. The kitchen, dining area and family room are everything you need, but we spent the majority of our time outside. The back patio and yard basically serve as an extension of the family room. And it's so convenient to have the beach literally steps away. It all seems so private!

The quaint main street is a leisurely 10 minute walk. It has enough restaurants and shops for daily outings if desired, and way less busy than neighboring Chatham! It was fun to walk into town for coffee or lunch, but we always wanted to get right back to the house. The beach and views are that good!

Kathy, the owner, is super accommodating and easy to work with. She loves her home and you can tell she loves sharing it with others. We loved it so much that we rebooked for 2017 the week we returned home. We cannot wait to get back!

Wonderful Home with Spectacular Views and Beach.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived and opened the door to the house we found it was even better than the online pictures. The location, at the top of a bluff overlooking Nantucket Sound, was spectacular. We had terrific weather with warm sunny days which enabled us to really enjoy the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, etc. Everything we needed to enjoy some meals at home. Grilling fish on the bbq was a favorite. The deck overlooking the Sound was well furnished and we enjoyed evening cocktails here. The beach chairs and outdoor shower made fun on the beach so simple. The local fish store (George's) and the many local quality restaurants made meals simple and enjoyable. When we encountered a problem with the wi-if, Kathy responded immediately and our problem was resolved. Overall, my family had a great vacation, and we will certainly be back.

Absolute Perfection-The Beach, home and location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic and immaculate. The views are incredible and the beach the best on the Cape. We had a mixed group-young couple, baby, middle aged couple and a senior citizen. Everybody loved the home, so comfortable. From the lovely outside deck with the perfect views. We grilled and just enjoyed sitting outside and admiring the views. No need to eat out but if you want to go out to a restaurant all are convenient and within walking distance. The beach is great and private, the water is warm and delightful. Stayed in the water all day and walked a few steps to our deck and enjoyed sipping our wine and relaxing. We hardly left the house, no need we had everything you could want. The owner, Kathy was extremely responsive and always got right back to me. I have stayed on the Cape for over 40 years and this property and location is by far the best place I have been on the Cape. Do not hesitate to stay at this prime location, I would love to stay again if I can-from NY but highly recommend to anybody. You will not be disappointed. Loved my vacation.
