Beautiful 3 Bedroom Cape Home Easy Walk to Beach/Harbor
average rating of 4.52 based on 25 reviews

The house was a great location to the beach, just a short walk as well as restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was great! The owner had everything you would need for the beach and more in the garage. The best part was just a short walk to the beach and the downtown area. Bedrooms were spacious and deck was great! Only a few cons, the street traffic was a bit loud at night, but you got used to it after a while. I was slightly disappointed that there was not AC in all the bedrooms as it was very hot but there were enough fans to put in them. Few items I would just mentioned that were broken when arriving was the umbrella on the deck and th coffee maker was hit or miss if it would work in the morning. All together it was a great vacation spot! Would recommend for families with kids or just family getting together for vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I am glad that the house had everything you needed. However I wish that you had contacted me or my caretakers so that we could replace the umbrella and coffee maker. In my welcome note I ask my tenants to contact us with any concerns or problems. We try to make your vacation as stress free as possible, but of course how can we serve you well if you don't inform us of your issues. Thankfully, these are easy fixes, and hopefully didn't impact too much on your holiday fun.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented Cathy's house in June and it is everything as shown in the pictures. The house is in a great location and is well maintained and very clean. There were six of us and we had plenty of room. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed. It was nice to have a washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable and we slept with the ocean breeze coming through the windows. I liked the swing on the front porch to relax and read my book. We were a short walk to the small beach at the end of the street. I would recommend this house for a family vacation.

Nice house in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean. The furniture was older. The location was central and allowed easy access to the entire Cape.

The perfect off season get away for my fiancé and I

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I wanted to take a vacation but did not want to stay at a hotel. So we decided to rent this house because the price was one of the lowest for the off season. And it had a hot tub, which is what we were looking for specifically. Well let me just say that this house was everything we were looking for and more. It has a huge yard, a hot tub, a grill which we used for cooking steaks. It it so quaint and practical. We honestly didn't feel like we were really on vacation at all (in a good way). If we realized we needed something from the store that we forgot, like aluminum foil-there was always some supply of it in the house somewhere! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a house that has a beautiful exterior and interior and is a short walk to the beach. When we got back to the house on Saturday night you could smell and hear the ocean from down the block. It was truly a romantic get away and we were very satisfied. If I had to say one con, I guess it would be that they charge a high cleaning fee to your card so the maid can come in after you leave, but we did have to set everything up for the maid prior to leaving. I guess she had a limited time to do everything which is understandable, I just wish the cleaning fee was lower in that case if your getting everything set up for her anyways. And the only other thing was I wished check out was a little later than 10, but other than that we loved it and would come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I realize that the cleaning service seems high, but they set the price so there isn't any wiggle room. However, if you had asked for a later check out time, I can sometimes accommodate guests in the off season. Of course the peak season has a fast turn over and this cannot work with the cleaning crews schedule. But I am glad that you had a great holiday and thanks again for taking the time to submit a review.

A beautiful house, well supplied

  • 4 of 5

Bedrooms were perfect for our needs. An extra bath would have been nice but not really needed as we worked it out.

Only minor complaints: Lower County Road was busier/noisier than I realized it would be. And I had trouble reading some of the printing on the appliances (like the upstairs AC). But I am old and am having trouble seeing close up. And the beach was close and the weather was great!

We didn't used the grill or the hot tub (which appeared to be too much trouble). But a good time was had by all.

Pleasant house, 5 min walk to nice beach

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 people for the week and the home comfortably accommodated everyone. House is in great shape, clean, and nicely equipped - nice to hang out here if the weather changes. 1 rainy day during the week, plenty to do nearby with kids or young adults, or just hang out on side porch which is sheltered from the elements but still lets you be outside. The beach is a pleasant 1/4 mile walk down the side street, house is located on corner of a main road and side street. 5 minute drive gets you to harwichport center and grocery store. Very nice time very nice beach.

This rental is more suited for families. Groups of young adults will be charged more. Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.

I have always provided linens and beach towels for many years.

I can provide linen rental companies info for renters who choose to use the service, or renters can choose to bring their own.
Also, please replace any items when you use the last ones. This includes tp, dish soap, laundry soap and garbage bags.
