About Cathy

Suffice it to say my kids and I love the cape. We have been coming since 1997. First it was for a holiday. Then it was a home away from home. Then it became home. You see, my kids and I moved a lot and the only stable place was the cape. They are now in their 20's and yet the cape is still their home. We still love the same things: walks on the beach, chatham fish pier, The Squire, striper fishing with Lenny, clamming, Mayflower Beach, Wellfleet drive in theater, the Ocean House, the sea breeze through open windows, hot tubs after a long day, wandering the shops in Harwichport, bumper boats and gocarting, lobster dinners and silly nights at Jake Rooneys. Even slow nights at the house with chilling on the porch swing, puzzles, games and good conversation. What's not to love? The cape gets under your skin and you are forever smitten.

Cathy purchased this house in 2002

Why Cathy chose West Harwich

Its a highly desirable location with a short walk to the beach, harbor and town. The house has a great deck, hot tub, yard and porch swing. It is a great place for a family vacation.

What makes this house unique

This a home that is completely renovated with all the features one would desire while on vacation. Plus the location is hard to beat.

Neat and comfortable interior, new sleeper couch, kitchen stocked with items for cooking, gas grill with gas line, chairs and wagon.

Everything we hoped for in Cape Cod!

  • 4 of 5

The home is spacious, comfortable, and easy to locate. After a long day exploring the sights and feasting on sea food, we truly felt like locals when we returned "home" and lounged in the large living room as we planned our next day's adventure. Although the home is not really near anything in particular, being in the center of the Cape, it's not really far from anything. Nice stay.

A beautiful home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our "home" for a quick weekend girls getaway! There was plenty of room for 7 of us to sleep, eat and relax comfortably. The hot tub was a treat and a short walk to the beach was the icing on the cake! The homeowner was available if we needed anything, but the house was in such great order the need never arose. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay and relax at the cape!

Another girls weekend in the books

  • 5 of 5

Despite the terrible weather from Jose, we had another great time visiting the Cape and chilling at a house that feels like home. If we weren't using the hot tub, we were curled up on the couches watching funny tv, drinking wine and having much needed ladies time. We did some eating out and some eating in. The house was totally equipped with everything we needed for whatever we wanted to do. Can't wait to visit again!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and the house is great. I walked to the beach every morning!

I gave 4 stars because FAQ and on line documentation talk about linens. I was traveling and unable to put my hands on the contract we signed. Linens are not included.

House had beach chairs, toys, games. Worked great for my family

Owner's Response: Sorry about the confusion about the linens. I will look into it. I am glad you contacted my caretakers (super people) and hopefully it didn't put a dent into your holiday fun.

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.
