About David and Birgit

We live north of Boston and wanted a place to get away; a home away from home. A place that we could enjoy on or own and with the kids at any age; where we focus on family time. The Cape's simple pleasures of the Sea, Sun, Sand, and Seafood in a old fashioned quaint seaside village, away from work and responsibility are perfect. I love laying in the backyard hammock watching the unique bird life, after a long day of swimming and sun; looking forward to a lobster roll and ice cream for dinner and watching a local baseball game. We are to young to retire for the summer, so when we are not there, I want other great families to share the same experience, at a fraction of a Hotel cost.

David and Birgit purchased this house in 2009

Why David and Birgit chose Cape Cod

When your here, the simple pleasures and property, which is designed for privacy and seclusion, block the stress of reality. It's a property that will make you feel at home more than any other; we try to include everything and more as if you were at your own home.

What makes this house unique

The best beach at the end of the street. Fish the Herring river one street over or at the beach.

Close to parks, town, shops, Spa's, kids activities, etc to keep you busy all week. And a backyard designed for relaxation.

Washer/Dryer in the house as well.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully cute Cape cottage, so clean and well appointed! The beach is within walking distance and I went every day - in my opinion it is the perfect beach. Numerous restaurants for all tastes and price points within easy driving distance and lots of great shopping for those occasional rainy days! The owner was responsive, friendly and extremely helpful. I look forward to returning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the cape this summer! This house had all the necessities and is a short walk to the beach (which was beautiful and quiet). The neighborhood is very charming; just as you'd expect to see on Cape Cod. The owners, David and Birgit, are communicative and so easy to work with. They even arranged to leave behind a baby crib and stroller for our toddler so that we wouldn't need to travel with our own. The outdoor shower and hammock were my favorite part of our stay! We took the owners tips on places to eat and enjoyed The Wooden Shoe, Buckie's, and George's Fish Market. We also had fun seal watching at the port in Chatham. I wish we could go back every Summer!

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house last summer. The description hardly does it justice. The home is so clean and comfortable. The back yard is simply marvelous. The owners go above and beyond providing information of what to do, places to eat etc. The shed is equipped with everything a family could need at the beach. My husband and I, our tweens, one teenager and my mother were all very comfortable here. The pull out couches were extremely comfortable. Everything was spot on in this house.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

We felt very at home in this house. Perfect size for the four of us. Great location off Rt.28. Too far to walk to beach, but the beach was nice. Washer and dryer were a big plus as was the supplying of sheets and towels. Found all the food supplies we needed at Shaws just down the road. Would recommend.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Dennisport for many summer vacations, but found this lovely beach house in West Harwich to be a perfect spot -- tucked away but close to all our favorite places, all the comforts of home, and hosts that really spent the time to make us feel special and welcome. They were great to work with and completely honest and upfront about everything (it is a bit of a walk to the beach, but what a great public beach!). Loved how they provided the beach wagon and all the other beach gear so we didn't have to drag our own with us. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone!

Pleasant Road Beach (Ocean)
Car: not necessary

We are only 4/10's of a mile (750 yards), 3 block, to Pleasant Road beach (public), one of the largest and most attractive out of all the beaches. Our home is located on a quiet side street, making it private and great for children. The walk to the beach is one straight shot, right down Pleasant Road; be aware, some rentals indicate their home is a certain distance to the beach, but often it is a private deeded beach and you have to keep walking to get to the public one. We are south of Rt. 28, so again, no traffic or busy intersections to worry about. Being centrally located, we are also a short walk to shops, stores, mini golf, go-carts, restaurants, etc.

The town of West Harwich is one of the most attractive, quiet, and quaint villages in all of Cape Cod. It is an ocean front village with shops to walk through including antiques, ice cream shops, and seafood restaurants. The beaches are beautiful, boasting fine sand and, thanks to Nantucket Sound, calm warm ocean water.
