Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Walton's Cape house for a week with our daughter, her husband and our two granddaughters, ages 6 and 9, who were visiting from Virginia Beach. The house is lovely, tastefully decorated and spacious. The study off the MBR that doesn't show in the pictures is a gem; great for catching up on the internet or watching the TV.

The girls played tennis, Jon kayaked and we spent a lot of time on the beach. We went out for dinner twice; visited the Four Seas for lunch and ice cream but ate most of our meals in the pretty dining room. A very peaceful, pleasant week! Would love to come again.

My family of 4 stayed in this wonderful spacious home this past week and from the moment that we pulled in the driveway felt like we were on vacation. Once we walked in to the beautiful home we were thrilled. We had space to spread out, read and relax. Just a short walk to the most beautiful beach. This home is close to everything that you need yet wonderfully private and away from everything. The decor and art as well as the comfortable accommodations made this so enjoyable. I could not have asked for anything more except for more time in this wonderful spot! The owners were available for any questions and wonderful to deal with. I look forward and hope we can go back!

Our new home away from home....

  • 5 of 5

Bruce and Nancy Walton are gracious renters and their house is lovely, comfortable and fabulously located. We spent a week there, the first half with our daughter and her family. (The house is great for little ones as well, and Bruce and Nancy have all the beach toys and boogie boards that you can borrow.) We spent the mornings at their private beach, a short walk down a pretty path. Afternoons we did other things...but in the evenings we had dinner together, usually grilling (the grill is terrific and right near the house). The house has two full bathrooms inside and another one off the garage....with an additional outside shower. We used that shower each day on our way back from the beach. The Waltons provide tons of beach towels as well as drawers and closet space for your own things. An added bonus are Nancy's beautiful watercolors all around the house!

Peaceful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had wonderful and relaxing time here. The location and home were secluded and so peaceful. The short walk down the private road and path revealed an incredible stretch of beach and breathtaking sunsets every night. The kids (8 and 10) enjoyed walking down the beach to the jetty and quiet pool with fish and crabs, and swimming in the “lazy river” beyond the jetty when the tide was coming in or out. The house was well stocked for a comfortable stay and Nancy and Bruce had everything well documented and were easy to contact with questions we had leading up to the trip. We’d definitely return!

The kids enjoyed having all the floor upstairs to themselves. The beach nearby is very nice and just a short walk from the house

Bruce and Nancy were excellent host and very helpful

Would recommend this house to anyone seeking a nice family time at the Cape

We had a wonderful time at this lovely home. The location is fantastic and the private beach is beautiful. It was very hot while we were there so the outdoor shower was great. The house is very well stocked with everything we needed. Nancy and Bruce were excellent hosts and very easy to communicate with.

The perfect rental in West Hyannisport!

  • 5 of 5

What a dynamite vacation rental in West Hyannisport. Our family of 5 (3 kids under the age of 10) had an excellent week on the Cape and the house was exactly what we had hoped! The home is tucked away in the woods so our kids could play safely and walk at will to the private beach. The house is perfectly equipped to accommodate a family vacation. Bruce and Nancy Walton provided very helpful recommendations and made our family feel very welcome. Not only does the house provide an easy stroll to the private beach, but Craigville beach is an easy walk, as is the neighborhood pizza restaurant and the general store, which is ideal for morning coffee. You can't go wrong with this great VRBO choice!
