Guestbook comments from the owner

The Beach Heather really feels like it is my home away from home, it is exactly how I would want my Cape Cod home to look like, it was relaxing and comfortable as well as very clean.

Thank you for our wonderful stay.

2 weeks of family fun

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying at Beach Heather. It is perfect for our family - we have 3 small boys (5yo, 3yo and 1yo). Location is great - easy drive to local beaches, adorable towns (both Chatham and Harwich), and the bike path is right around the corner. The house is lovely, such nice touches, very well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen, a high chair for the baby, lots of bikes in the garage. Joe is a great host - totally available, very helpful. We will be back!!

Relaxing in Harwich

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this house for a week while visiting the cape and it had everything we needed. It's a short drive or bike ride to the beach, as well as Chatham or Harwich shopping and restaurants. The small neighborhood off Depot Rd is quiet and has convenient access to the CCRT for biking and running. You're also close to Harwichport if you decide to take the ferry over to Nantucket for the day. We'll definitely be back!

A nice comfortable home convenient to the bike path!

  • 5 of 5

Joe was very nice and easy to deal

with! Not very many places allowed a partial week which worked with our schedule perfectly! The house had everything we needed! Great to have bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas too. Plenty of space and comfortable as well. The close proximity to the amazing bike path was a bonus. Convenient to many Cape locations. Great stay!

Beautiful home, excellent area... A great escape!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in properties all over the UK, Europe and the US and this was up there with the best. Joe is an exceptional host, always quick to answer my (many!) questions and has thought of everything in the house. The layout was perfect for us and so family-friendly. It was exceptionally clean (and I'm fussy!). Kitchen is a great size and we loved the open layout. The location was brilliant - easy access to the beach and bike trail and we enjoyed exploring locally as well as further afield. We enjoyed the outside as well as inside space and my one-year-old became very attached to the rabbits that sometimes popped into the garden. Lots of bikes to be used, toys and books. The only thing we didn't like was leaving!

The perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I escaped to Cape Cod for four nights over Memorial Day weekend. Joe's place made for the perfect vacation. The location was ideal. The house's proximity to 6 and 28 made drives to either end of the Cape a breeze, and being one block from the bike path made for a fun morning routine. The fact that Joe provided so many bikes for us to choose from was a great bonus! The house was clean, nicely decorated, and with all of the added amenities, felt like home. We especially loved spending a night entertaining good friends around the fire pit, roasting marshmallows, and grilling up steaks. We look forward to coming back, and would recommend this place to anyone!

Great, cozy, modern home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an 8 night stay in Joe's home. What a great place! Everything is clean and modern, and updated. I notice details and the homeowner went to great lengths to include things like three tier-levels of lighting in the master bedroom. Tray ceiling with lighting along the inside edges, recessed can lighting and another light below the ceiling fan. Nice touch! Joe was an excellent communicator getting back to me very quickly and always wanting to make our experience in his home memorable. I asked if he had a fire pit to sit around on chilly, October nights. He said he didn't but he promptly went out and bought one, along with some Duraflame logs for us!!!! Service above and beyond expectations. We are considering a longer stay next summer with our kids. Very convenient access to the bike path, one block from the home, and a great assortment of bikes (8) for you to use during your stay saving you big dollars if you have a large group and planned to rent bikes. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Joe again. Fantastic home!!! Thanks, Joe, for the hospitality. Glenn
