About Ed Saras

Our children love Harwich Port and all that it and Cape Cod offers!

Ed Saras purchased this house in 2009

Why Ed Saras chose Cape Cod

Our children's grandmother lives in Harwich and we have been visiting and vacationing here for over 25 years. We have owned the house for four years and love it and the location. We plan to retire here!

What makes this house unique

We love our daily walk to the beach and along the side streets in our neighborhood (2 mile loop). You can walk or bike to meet almost any need from our house.... beach, shopping, eating, kids activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a beautiful home! It was wonderful to be able to walk to the beach. Beautiful weather all week.

A Home Away From Home Better Than You Could Imagine

  • 5 of 5

When we were looking for a beach house to rent on The Cape, I saw this house here on VRBO and kept coming back to it. It honestly was the only house we wanted to rent and thankfully it was available. Even before we arrived, the owner took the time to talk with me at length about questions I had about the house and the area.

The house itself is extremely well appointed. It didn't feel like a rental. Instead, it felt like generous friends had loaned you their house for the weekend. There was not a single thing lacking in this home.

It is close to the beach.

It has every pot, pan, plate, glass you could want.

There is plenty of seating for 6+ people.

The theatre in the basement was a big treat as we stayed in one night to pile cozily on the couches and watch "The Big Chill."

The kitchen was our main spot to hang out and it was perfect for all of us. Plenty of room to entertain and talk while preparing meals.

The beds were super comfortable and the the linens high quality.

The outdoor shower was clean, spacious and non spider-webby (important!)

There were plenty of bathrooms and TV's.

It's a great neighborhood to run or bike.

The supermarket was close by.

We loved loved loved this house and wish we could buy it. Did we say we loved this house? We love it and you will too. We can't wait to return next year and the year after and the year after. . .

An exellent rental property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two adult children stayed in this rental for a week at the end of August during the summer of 2011 and we enjoyed it immensely. The listing description is very accurate as are the photos. When we arrived the house was clean and there were even fresh flowers in the kitchen and the living room. The kitchen is well equipped which we took full advantage of because we prefer to cook our own food. Shaw's Supermarket is only minutes away which is very convenient. We bought delcicious fresh fish at the Dennisport Lobster Co. next to Benny's which is also very close to the rental.

We thoroughly enjoyed the badminton and the ping pong table and we loved eating our meals on the lovely deck in the backyard. The property is beautifully landscaped. The house is continguous to Lower County Rd. which is a main road which goes into town. It is not as busy as 28, but you can hear the traffic when you sit in the backyard. We hardly noticed it and it didn't impact our experience at all.

We absolutely loved the short walk to the beach right at the end of Brooks Road. It is a rather small beach as there are private beaches on either side, but it was absolutely lovely and the water was warm as indicated in the listing. The house is fully equipped - there is a beach cart, plentiful beach towels, umbrella and everything one would need for a day at the beach. The only things we purchased that were not provided were a few bars of soap and some additional toilet paper and paper towels. Having the laundry room is a blessing and it was well stocked with plenty of detergents. It was so nice not having to bring our own linens which we have had to do in past rentals.

We were able to walk to town, the CVS and it is only a 20 minute car ride away from Chatham Bars Inn where my daughters thoroughly enjoy having lunch when we visit the Cape. There are also bikes which we took advantage of as well when we took a local bike ride.

I would highly recommend this rental. One thing to be aware of is that it does sleep 8, and it is a 3 bedroom house, and other than the master bedroom, the other two bedrooms each have a double bed and a daybed with a trundle. You could have three couples with those arrangements and the bedrooms are lovely. The rental is in a really lovely section of Harwichport and we enjoyed walking around the area which has very beautiful homes. The house is well-equipped inside and outside. We would love to return.
