Great experience

Our family stayed a week in July '16. Place was everything promised and everything we wanted. The location gave easy access to many sites and activities. The owner was very easy to work with...very cooperative. All in all, a great experience.

Perfect Home for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This historic sea captain's home is perfect for large groups (small groups, too!). We first stayed in Kathy's home during the summer of 2013 with a group of 8 adults and 3 children. The home was a perfect fit for us! We were never on top of each other and we all slept comfortably. When it came time to search for a property for our 2015 Cape Cod visit, it wasn't even a question...this historic home was the only one we considered (group of 6 adults and 2 children). For us, the pool really completes this property and adds to the entire vacation experience. Working with the owner, Kathy, is always smooth. She goes out of her way to assist her renters and she was especially good to us as returning renters. There is no other home I would considr after coming here...this is the perfect home for us! :) We look forward to staying here again!

Great Family Vacation in Historic West Dennis!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had a great time stay in this old Captain's House in West Dennis. The pictures do the house justice - it is very clean and well-maintained, with a good sized yard and a very nice pool. The 5 bedrooms can accommodate up to 10 people, and we were all very comfortable. The stairs inside are steeped, but our elderly parents (both around 80) were able to navigate them without much trouble.

There are a lot of family activities to do locally (bowling, mini-golf, bumper cars, seafood & ice cream, and of course the beaches), and the pool is a great way to start the morning. We had everything we needed, and there were even 2 large TV's (and DVD players) for those who needed a TV fix. The rooms were large, fans in each room, and there were plenty of places to sit outside and inside (including poolside dining area and picnic table outside).

The house is kept very clean and is nicely furnished, and made herself available if we encountered any problems (which we did not). Overall, a terrific vacation!

Great Cape Escape

  • 5 of 5

This large, bright & airy home provided a relaxing, comfortable stay for my family of 9. We had a great week spending time by the pool and took advantage of the many conveniently-located beaches and family fun spots in the area. The home and the pool are clean and well-maintained - a charming place inside & out. We appreciated the fact that it had 2 flat screen tvs, so the younger generation could watch their programs and the adults could enjoy their own in the evening. The pictures and description provided on the site are accurate. We had a great week and wouldn't hesitate to go back!

West Dennis Rental-Beautiful and great location

  • 5 of 5

House had lots of charm and plenty of room…our family of 5 was very comfortable! Pool was great, house and pool area very clean. Good location…centrally located on the cape so we were able to explore a lot of the area. Close to main roadways and beaches.
