Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay! From the moment we arrived, Janis greeted us with kindness as was so excited to show us her "cottage." This place has everything you could think of! She takes great pride in her property, the whole house was spotless and up to date. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for everyone. My 2 little girls loved the sandy beach a short walk down the road. Most of the week they had the beach all to themselves! Onset Village (also a short walk or very short drive) had plenty of restaurants to choose from and also a small grocery store. The house is in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood, which definitely helped contribute to a relaxing vacation. The yard was large enough for the kids to run around and play and we could see the water from the yard and inside the house. My family can't thank you enough Janis for allowing us to all have a relaxing family getaway together.

Great location, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful newer home that is very welcoming. The yard was spacious for playing outdoor games and having meals. The proximity of this wonderful home is ideally located within steps to the water to drop in the kayaks, walking or biking distance to dining, events, the pier. Only a few minutes to the canal where you can rent a bike and go down the path along the canal or enjoy the visitors center with lots of activities for everyone. Onset Village was just a great place to relax. Quiet neighborhood. Away from the busyness of the cape yet close enough to get anywhere. We truly enjoyed our stay in Janis's home. She was a fabulous host with lots of insight as to what is going on in the area and places to go. Janis made us feel like we were old friends and not just someone renting out her home. What a great start and finish to vacation. Thank you Janis for your hospitality and making this such a wonderful retreat for our family to enjoy! Would highly recommend staying here.

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!
