About The Owner

My husband and I both have Mediterranean roots and have always loved to vacation by the sea. We live in the Boston area with our 3 children and our Wheaten Terrier. Although we are far from the Mediterranean, we are only one hour away from the beautiful shores and beaches of Cape Cod. Since our children were born, we have been bringing them to the beaches of Cape Cod. We knew that we wanted to spend our summers here, swimming, fishing, tubing, boating and everything that the Cape has to offer for families and kids. We decided to invest in our own Beach house so we can enjoy being at the beach anytime.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Buzzards Bay

We chose this location because of the spectacular morning sunrises and the gorgeous panoramic views of Buttermilk Bay and Cape Cod Canal. We enjoy its peaceful and private setting. Even though the bay is one step away from the wide open ocean, it is well protected from the rough open seas. The gentle waters of the bay make it very safe for young children and with panoramic views from our house, we feel very comfortable when our children enter the water without us!

What makes this house unique

Our home is very comfortable and spacious and we enjoy large family gatherings and entertaining friends here. Every year, the kids stage a sand castle competition at our beach with the winner getting all the ice cream they can eat! We enjoy fishing, tubing, boating, windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking in our back yard as well as digging up clams and making homemade clam 'chowda'. At night, we build a fire, make smores and tell stories while we gaze into the starlit sky to find Orion and Big Bear. It is very quiet and peaceful at our beach house but it's only a stones throw away from the Cape Cod Canal and the Bourne Bridge, making it very convenient to endless destinations and activities for the whole family. It's our own little piece of heaven. We enjoy it very much here! :)

Perfect property for families

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of 3 couples and 3 children, aged 4 and under. There were plenty of bedrooms and comfortable beds for all of us and the house and kitchen is very well equipped. The house is spotlessly clean and very well laid out. We did a ridiculously long search to try to find the perfect place for our family holiday and finally settled on this house. It was absolutely the right choice. The town of Buzzards Bay itself is not a particularly cute or attractive place, but nearby Onset has a certain charm and some of the best pizza we have ever had! We ordered delivery from Mark Anthony's!! Highly recommended! Also, there are towns on the Cape that you can go to as destinations if you are looking for quaint places to walk around.

Having a beach right out the front door made it the ideal place for us as we juggled nap-times of 2 toddlers. When tide was in, we all splashed in the water and when it was out, we built sand castles. The beach shed is jam packed (in a tidy fashion) with life jackets, water shoes, beach chairs and umbrellas and a ton of beach toys. There is a single and a double kayak that we used several times. The kids loved going out to watch the swans and Canada geese on the bay.

There were tons of beach towels available for our use, which was very appreciated!

The Stop and Shop grocery store, only 10 minutes drive away is huge and well stocked. We also made a trip to Trader Joe's in Hyannis a half hour drive from the house - but very well worth the trip.

Yiota was only a text away whenever we had any questions and she was always extremely helpful!

We all agreed that we would happily stay in this house again. We left feeling like we had really had a holiday! Thanks Yiota!!

Owner's Response: Hi Susan. It was very nice to meet you and your husband, children and grandchildren last week upon your arrival. I'm happy to know that you found the house well stocked and comfortable and that the private beach and shed full of beach things made it easy and relaxing with your little ones. It sounds like you had a great week. I'm glad that you took the time to explore different areas near the house as well as other parts of Cape Cod. I would like to thank you again for sharing with me your drone photos of our Bay at sunset and the time lapse video of the spectacular sunrise that you took with your iphone from our deck one morning. They are beautiful and amazing birds eye views of our property and neighborhood and you have convinced me that it's worth it to get up at 5:00am! I wish you and your family a great rest of summer and hope to see you back for a future stay. All the best. -Yiota

Beautiful Place in Buzzards Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. We loved the house—it was clean, nicely furnished with a well-stocked kitchen, linens, beach towels, and many other things that we appreciated having when we checked in.

We were especially impressed with the owner. She met us at the property, gave us a tour, showed us where things were, and was very responsive the times we needed to call or text her. She obviously cares about keeping the property in top condition and also wants her guests to enjoy their stay. She greeted us with a nice gift basket, which we thought was a generous and thoughtful thing to do.

We had four families and children ages 1-14, yet there was something for everyone to do and places to go on the property if you needed some peace and quiet. There's plenty of parking, and there were also other activities close by if you wanted to take the kids for an adventure in town. At the house there were also plenty of movies, a good Wi-Fi signal, and other entertainment for them, including air hockey and foosball. The nice, large grocery store located close by proved to be very convenient as well. The beach was quite accessible, though the little ones seemed to enjoy that more than the older ones. You definitely need water shoes, of which the owner had an ample supply. The bottom has a lot of shells, rocks, etc. if you waded out.

We did have a little trouble finding the place. However, because the owner was meeting us there, we had her phone number and she quickly resolved that issue for us.

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone considering it. The description and photos were accurate, and we had a great time there.

Wonderful beach front home, lovely owner, terrific week away.

  • 5 of 5

We had been trying to rent this property for a few years but we could never coordinate the right weeks with my entire family. This year it worked out and I am so glad it did. There were 14 of us. 7 adults and 7 children. My grandkids had a ball on the grounds playing games and in the water exploring the shore and waterline. We played, swam, floated and throughly relaxed. Karaoke was so much fun in the very well equipped playroom. My favorite time was coffee in the morning on the deck watching the waterfront come alive. A special touch besides the wonderful amenities of the house was a thoughtful gift basket. Something for everyone in the family. Thank you Yiota, hoping to visit your beach house again soon. (And thanks for the glorious weather)

Enjoyed Our Entire Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that must be said about this property is how fabulous the owner is. Yiota was so communicative from the first email to our last encounter. She was quick to respond and always welcomed any questions or concerns that arose. We had a lovely chat with her and her husband upon our arrival. They made us feel completely at home. The house itself is as advertised and accommodated our extended family of 15 people - ages 3-77. The layout was ideal and the home well appointed. We did a lot of our own cooking and spent a great deal of time on site. We could not be happier with our experience from beginning to end.

When House Is A Home...

  • 5 of 5

There is an old saying that a house is not a home. This house in Buzzards Bay is indeed a home. A home is where you can feel comfortable and safe. The space feels real. The owners of this home have done everything possible to transform a rental into a home. Everything you could possibly want to insure a great time is provided. We have rented numerous times from VRBO and when an issue arises....there is no one to call. Not the case here. Any questions or issues are quickly resolved by the owners. Wanting a carefree uncomplicated vacation...this is the spot.

A Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Yiota met us at checkin and gave us a tour and was very responsive to any questions we had during the week. She left a beautiful gift basket full of goodies for the kiddos and was kind enough to meet our grocery delivery guy on the day of checkin as we weren't going to be there in time for the delivery window. She also took the time to send us a bunch of recommendations on where to view fireworks on the 4th. We ended up staying in that evening and we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing fireworks display we saw right from the deck of the house. The view from the deck is beautiful. We enjoyed many days exploring on the beach and many evenings roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Lastly, Yiota was kind enough to mail us some clothing that was accidentally left behind. Truly a wonderful and responsive host. Thank you for a wonderful and fun week.

Owner's Response: Hello Polly. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience. It was very nice to meet you and your family at checkin. I could tell that everyone was so excited to have finally arrived after your long trip. I'm glad that you found the house well equipped and comfortable as we have tried to provide as much as possible for our guests so they can just focus on enjoying their stay. The 4th of July is definitely a very festive time on the Bay. It's great that you got to take it all in from the front deck and enjoyed roasting marsh mellows and exploring the beach with the kids! We wish you all a wonderful rest of summer and hope to see you back again sometime in the future. -Yiota
