Very warm and friendly home located centrally on Cape Cod. It's a cinch getting anywhere on the Cape from here. The home is very clean and comfy - central air is a big plus! The owners are wonderful people, too. Can't wait to be back next year!

Perfect for our young family!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home, nicely furnished/decorated. Centrally located near parks, shops, restaurants, beaches, and more! The pool was great (although mostly in the shade throughout the day - better for the kids but I would've loved more sun!). Have laundry was huge!! The bedrooms all were comfortable. Plenty of TV's for varied preferences. Playroom was great!! Overall we loved it!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Super nice set up for two to eight. Between the pool, jacuzzi, pool table, and ping pong table alone there's something to do for everyone. Beautiful home, very neat setup, and clean. Terrific vacation spot my family hopes to visit gain next summer. Special thanks to the owner who was very accommodating and quick to respond when needed.

Loved it!

More Comforts Than My Own Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation spent at this lovely home. We enjoyed time every day in the impeccably maintained pool. There were just so many "extras" like the hot tub, pool table, and ping pong table. We had a few drizzly, cloudy days, but never got bored because there was just so much to do here. Having young kids, we also appreciated the proximity to the wonderful playground at the Harwich Elementary School. The home was very clean and comfortable and located in a friendly neighborhood convenient to the beach, shops, activities, and more.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this vacation home! We stayed here in July of 2012 and we are heading back down again this summer and we can't wait! What sets the bar for this vacation rental, is that it is more than a rental. The owners provide you with everything to be a guest in their second home for a week. Suzanne provides you with great suggestions that were helpful for us on planning our daily activities and you couldn’t ask for a better spot. The layout is spacious, bright, inviting and immaculately maintained. And I mean immaculate. There wasn’t a grain of sand on the gleaming hardwood floors! The kitchen is fully equipped with every pot and pan imaginable. There are plenty of TVs, cable, videos, games etc to keep everyone busy. The basement has an awesome ping pong table which helped entertain our kids on a rainy afternoon. Having the pool and hot tub were great since one child is an early riser – a quick bike and jump in the pool helped to quell the busy 11 year old. The location is probably what I loved the most. You are close enough to ride into town with the kids by bike but more importantly far enough away to feel like you truly are on vacation.

The property was delightful and as described. The playground at the nearby elementary school is quite large and very useful for 8 yrs. old and under. Ping pong and pool table were nice to have as well. Info. provided by owners of local scene was very useful and accurate. We didn't think we would use the pool at first thought, but the kids were in it every day after a tough day at the beach.Our favorite beach was Red River for its size and jetties for the kids to explore. Harwich is really an ideal spot for exploring all the cape has to offer.We felt very welcome here and will definitely return if vacationing on the cape.
