Perfect Family Home by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my extended family to relax and enjoy the beach for a week. Janis was a thoughtful host, and her care for the home and her guests really shows. She uses the term "cottage" to be humorous-- the house is spacious, and essentially brand new, with all the amenities you could need. Thanks to the open living area, the porch and front yard, we felt very comfortable even with 7 adults and 2 children. Some of our favorite things about the cottage were: the outdoor shower after coming back from Sandy Beach; happy hour on the the front porch and watching the sunset after the kids were in bed; the perfect location in walking distance to the shops and restaurants at the center of Onset; playing soccer and popping bubbles on the front lawn, and kayaking around the bay. While in Onset, we also enjoyed a sunset Canal Cruise, the Falmouth Road Race, a fishing trip thanks to a boat rental at Stonebridge Marina, and a visit to the Woods Hole Aquarium. Our perfect weather was good luck, and so was finding this place! Before the week was over, we had already begun planning our trip next summer. Thank you, Janis!

Lovely place, brilliant host

  • 5 of 5

What we experienced was a fantastic week. A really nice house, wonderful garden, great air conditioning, all electronic devices needed, even guest presents (incredible, we never had that!) - above all a really friendly and supportive host. There is really nothing we missed and we can just recommend enjoying a fab time at Janis' house. Go ahead and book it. You won't regret it.

Amazing Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at this home. I was first blown away at how meticulous, clean, organized and well decorated this home was because that certainly is not the case for all cape rentals. We were able to move right in and make ourselves comfortable. The home provided everything that we needed. It was a short walk (less than 2 minutes) to two small private beaches that my young sons loved to play at. It was about a 10 minute or less walk to the public beach in the center of town that you could also drive to if necessary with all your beach gear. Parking was ample all week long. The location is very serene. We enjoyed sitting on the porch or yard overlooking the water. We had a family reunion/party one day and there was plenty of space for all. We walked to restaurants, went on a canal cruise, enjoyed kayaking and soaked up the sun at the beach. Janis was a gracious host. She left us a wonderful welcome bag that was so thoughtful and filled with local treats that we enjoyed. She was available to answer any questions we had. We had no issues while staying there. We hope to go back again next year.

Our wonderful summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed every minute of our week in this lovely shoreline home! From the location, to the beach, to the beautiful and spotless home - we were thoroughly pleased. We love the beach themed decore, the fully equipped kichen and BBQ, and the spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable- we had a great time, and we'll be back!

Stellar Vacation Home and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week in Onset and the Cape. It is nearly impossible to fully convey how truly wonderful this house and lovely owner is. As soon as we entered the front door we were greeted by the owner, Janis, who is perhaps one of the warmest, most gracious leasees we've ever encountered. She takes tremendous pride in her home, which is reflected throughout this new house that is so beautifully designed and decorated. For several days the house easily accommodated as many as 7 people, and can even hold up to 9 guests! We all felt completely comfortable in the house located in the charming town of Onset, which was a great starting point for our daily excursions throughout the Cape. Janis provided excellent suggestions for areas to explore (i.e. Onset Beach, Sandwich, Chatham, Marconi Beach, Martha's Vineyard and Provincetown,) as well as terrific recommendations for dinner (Don't miss Wimpys in Osterville)! All in all, our vacation week was a complete success, not only because the Cape provides a myriad of diverse activities that guests of all ages can enjoy, but at least as important, the owner cares so deeply about the enjoyment of all who enters her very special home.

We enthusiastically recommend this vacation rental to anyone seeking an exceptional place to stay in a superb environment!

The location of the home is not close to any large beach areas so driving to other towns is required. The outdoor shower door was stuck and we were unable to use it.

The TVs are located in the corners mounted to the ceiling and they are difficult to see from the seating arrangements.

The dining area is small for groups larger than 6 people and the kitchen island was too small to prepare our Lobsters. There is an odor of propane from the tank and inside the front closet.

We loved Cape Cod but this home was too far from the areas needed for families or beach goers.

We wouldn't recommend this home to families because of the amenities and location to beaches and sightseeing.

Owner's Response: I never thought I would ever have to respond to a guest review. The family who wrote this actually left a note in our guest book we keep at the house. They wrote "we loved your cottage and Cape Cod". What they didn't love, was the money we deducted from their deposit for all the extra work that required because of the deplorable conditions they left the property in. Yes, I do want my guests to treat my home like they would want for their own home. Up until this family, everyone has. Onset Beach is large, beautiful and extremely well-groomed by our town. In fact, Onset Beach was selected as the best Upper Cape Beach in 2009 by Cape Cod Life magazine. This beautiful beach is less than a 10 minute WALK from our property. Multiple other large beaches are within a 15 minute drive. We don't have propane on our property other than for the gas grille which is outside. The pictures shown on our listing clearly show the size of the kitchen and island, as well as the dining room table and chairs. I think these pictures speak for themselves. I open the outside shower door all the time after every rental to be sure nothing has been left behind by a prior guest. It is a simple latch. Perhaps, they didn't know how to operate it Yes, the two TV'S are on the walls, on swivel mounts, one in the living room to make sure our guests can watch TV or DVD'S easily from wherever they choose to sit, even at the dining room table The second TV faces the bed in the master bedroom We have provided for our guests a beautiful, clean and comfortable new home to begin and end your days on Cape Cod and the surrounding areas. I hope in reading all the other reviews, you can truly appreciate how special this home and area are and how important you, as my guest, are to me. Our guests decide if this location is suitable for them based on what they want to do and see on vacation. Sincerely, Janis
