About Traci, Tim or Stephen

Hi, My brother, sister-in-law and I are actually co-owners of this home. Like many natives of Massachusetts, we spent many summers on the Cape as kids and so have a natural (if not genetic) attachment. We'd been vacationing together with friends and family in this area of Yarmouth and each visit brought on the usual discussion of how great it would be to own a place of our own to share with friends and family over the years. We'd admired this house for years and had written it off as a out of our range. But we dropped in on a whim last winter when we were looking and, well, through some alignment of the stars it worked out for us to buy into this beautiful adventure! Hope you can share this with us and make this home a place of many great memories for you and your families over the years! Thanks, Stephen

Traci, Tim or Stephen purchased this house in 2009

Why Traci, Tim or Stephen chose Yarmouth

This is an ideal location. Very quiet and residential. There are a few nice hotels in the neighborhood that enhance the area - they're great for when extra company comes for a visit, and at least one (a nice walk down the beach) rent kayaks, boat rides, etc. There is a great local restaurant (Skipper's) within walking distance, which is really convenient if you don't feel like cooking or driving for a dinner out. It's also great to sit on the outdoor porch overlooking the sea to grab a lunchtime lobster roll! The house is an easy walk (5 minutes) to the jetty at Parker's River, which is a great place for fishing with the kids at the end of the beach day. Of course once in the car nothing is far. Three terrific golf courses nearby. Hyannis with shopping, dining and other attractions. We've really enjoyed the JFK Museum there. Nearby Route 28 has everything any one could ever need in terms of grocery shopping, restaurants, etc., etc.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy...sun, sunrise over the Sound, sunsets over the river, playing in the yard (still can't believe how big this is front and back!), having a coffee and reading the papers on the sun porch in the morning with the sun dancing on the sea, having a drink on the lawn after a day at the beach, walking on the beach, gold weekends, beachcombing, outdoor barbecues, planning our next trip to the Cape...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at your home! Your home has a great layout for family’s just hanging out, playing games indoors and out, and for cooking and family meals. Everything was “right there” so we were able to stay put and really relax, smell the salt air and enjoy the view!

Nice "Beachy" cottage, across the street from the water. Great front porch. Quiet with a big lawn.

All in all a good experience. Convenient to other Cape locations.

Enjoying the good times

  • 5 of 5

Everyday, people coming or going to the beach would ask how we got so lucky to be right in front of the beach. I'd answer «We chose well!». Through homeAway, we found this beautiful home for our vacations. The pictures looked good. The location too. Communications with the owners were perfect. Too bad we never got to meet them in person. Their home is just the perfect vacation spot. We were 6, four adults and two kids, and the three bedrooms made it a perfect stay. Bed were good and the nights pretty quiet. With a view directly on the Nantucket sound, from the front yard or the summer lounge in front, and a cute semi-private beach just in front, where there were never too many people, all was ideal. The beach is really ten steps away. We'd go swim without towels. And the outdoor shower was so useful for washing away salt and sand. Note that the water is quite warm and, somedays, has a bit of alga floating around in it.

The house has a good kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, and all that is needed. Plenty of room in the backyard to hold a BBQ feast and play frisbee. There are many attractions nearby, for kids and grown-ups: mini-golf, karting and arcades; shops and beautiful sceneries. And even an excellent seafood restaurant at walking distance.

All in all, we had a multi-generation vacation that was exactly what we hoped for and more. Thank you. We will go back!

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home (7/13/13-7/20/13) for a family vacation and had a wonderful time. We had 2 adults and 4 teenagers and there was enough room that everyone had their own space. This was our first trip to Cape Cod and this home is nicely located. We never had to drive more than 45 minutes to see any of the sights. This may still seem like a lot of driving but the Cape is very spread out and driving is quite slow. There are plenty of nice and inexpensive restaurants close by. You simply have to walk across one road and you are at a lovely beach. Our week there was incredibly hot, but the window A/C units in each of the bedrooms made sleeping very comfortable. The house had just about everything we needed, but no hair dryer (which was an issue for 3 teenage girls!). Some of the furnishings could be updated. There is a lovely porch with a great view of the ocean, but the chairs were rather uncomfortable to sit in. The living room sofa was a bit worn. But none of this took away from our stay. If we ever decide to return to Cape Cod, we would definitely want to stay in this home again.

Oceanfront Charmer

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week (6/15/13-6/22/13) at this lovely property. What a find! It's not always an easy decision to pick a place over the internet but I'm so glad we did. We were visiting the Cape for the first time from California with our two children (9 & 7) and meeting my sister and brother in-law for a mini-reunion. We were not disappointed! The house was lovely! It was very clean and comfortable. There were all the things we needed in order to cook and relax (a lot more relaxing than cooking). The house is right across the street from the ocean and centrally located to many other beaches and fun destinations. There is a great restaurant & ice cream shop within walking distance (Skipper's). The kid's loved Pirate's Cove for miniature golfing, and all the local beaches were beautiful and very clean. We went everywhere from Falmouth to Provincetown and loved everything in between. This was one of our very best family vacations and I know that much of that is due to the wonderful location and accommodations of this charming rental. It embodied our visions and expectations of the Cape perfectly.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our stay in Yarmouth. We love the location of the house and love being able to have friends stay nearby at one of the hotels. The Beach House, across the street, staff are a little difficult since they complain about parking, even of their own guests. But once I explained to the homeowner that no one visiting us was parking at the Beach House unless they were staying there, he understood. Also, the homeowner was very responsive to any questions or needs he had.
