About Alan

Native of southeastern Massachusetts. Live in northern Virginia, and enjoy Chatham in the Spring and Fall.

Alan purchased this house in 2008

Why Alan chose West Chatham

This property had the charm and location desired and is on a private gravel road with little traffic and large shell driveway. Offers close proximity to everything Chatham and the Cape have to offer, yet a neighborhood that is quiet and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

The property is surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens. There are many hydrangeas that accent the property. Soon after purchase a central A/C system was installed. Also, a bright and airy great room was added. In 2017 a screen porch built off of the great room was also added. The gardens are added to each year with ornamental grasses and flowers. Having early morning coffee or evening cocktails in the private front garden or screen porch is one of my favorites.

The original living room was converted to an extra large dining area to provide more room for those Chatham lobster meals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was a gem! More than enough room for a family of 6 to spread out and relax. The 3 season room is perfect for chilling, eating dinner, or just having friends over to gather. Plenty of parking, and super quiet street just off rte. 28 in ideal location to beaches and downtown. Would recommend to any guest coming to Chatham.

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We were two families totaling 8 (4 adults, 4 kids) and we all had enough space. Everything was very clean and well cared for, despite a dated and worn kitchen (fine for a beach house, in our opinion). The owner was lovely to deal with and very responsive (all via email) and clearly is actively involved in keeping everything looking so good (nice decor, window treatments, doors, some updates, details!). The neighborhood is nice but about a mile to the beach so we had to ride our bikes or take the car, as it was a bit too far to walk for the kids. Hardings Beach is a great beach; it has a very clean bathroom/shower. This house is in a great location (south of Rt 28 so you don't have to cross over that busy road); close to shops and restaurants via car. We had perfect weather (mid-August) and we really enjoyed every minute of this house, neighborhood and town!

Lovely, charming, comfortable + perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week in Cape Cod! The house was perfect in many points! We enjoyed every aspects of it! Our five girls had so much fun in the backyard playing in the outdoor play-set and chasing a funny fox and rabbits! We had enough room for everyone to sleep well! We felt lucky to stay in such a lovely place for a week! We went to the beach by bike almost every day!

We will certainly go back to Chatham someday and would strongly consider this house! We will also recommend it to our friends and families!

Thanks for everything!

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation in Chatham and can't say enough good things about our experience at this home. We really liked the location, close enough to town that we could easily ride our bikes in, but not too close as the property is very quiet and set back away from main roads. We also enjoyed jogging and biking to Hardings Beach, which is beautiful. The home itself was more spacious than we expected and clean. Our 1-year old daughter slept in her travel crib in our room and we were also very pleased with how quiet it was. She was able to nap very easily, much more so than when we've had her in our hotel room. Alan was very responsive and great to deal with as well.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we spent at this vacation rental. Lets start with the description that was given by the owner: completely accurate....the pictures cannot do justice to the comfort and relaxation the home provided. There were 2 living rooms...which was great when travelling with 2 families. There was a kitchen ...though a little small was more than stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups and utensils. The appliances were fairly new and worked great. Beds were all very comfortable in the 4 bedrooms and bathrooms were very recently renovated.

Location: great! It was no more than a 5 minute drive to Ridgevale, Hardings or Cockle Cove (great beaches for smaller kids) and about 5 min to a grocery store. You can walk to Chatham Lobster and Fish Market. The house is about 5 min to town and parking was never a problem ...plenty of spaces in the public lots.

The owner was great to work with and always answered promptly to any questions or concerns.

All in all I really recommend this property....we really felt that it was a comfortable, clean and welcoming place to stay.
