About Alan

Live in northern Virginia, and enjoy Chatham in the Spring and Fall.

Alan purchased this house in 2008

Why Alan chose Cape Cod

This property had the charm and location we desired and is on a private gravel road with little traffic. 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

Soon after purchase we installed central A/C and converted an attached garage into a bright and airy great room. The gardens are added to each year with ornamental grasses and flowers. Having early morning coffee in the private front garden is one of my favorites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Al,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation week in your home. We had a wonderful time and the house worked out perfectly for our little family reunion. Our two adult children and mother-in-law, all of whom live out of state, were able to join us with plenty of room for relaxing and family game nights! The bathroom improvements were awesome -- we all felt that they made a huge difference both in terms of comfort and appearance -- you did a wonderful job! Thank you again and I hope you have a great rest of summer!

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.
