Wonderful week on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Great Escape. We found the house clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed for a couple of seniors to chill out. We definitely plan to return.

Great Escape is more than great...

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two girls, ages 6 and 3, and our big Labrador retriever had the best time at this beach house. The house was the perfect size for us. I was afraid we might be cramped, but the open floor plan was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Loved having a washer/dryer at the house. They've thought of everything, so you just get to relax! The beach was great, plenty of space to spread out and for our girls to play. The best part is the screened-in porch and the sun deck. We saw several amazing sunsets, and enjoyed our coffee out there each morning. I also emailed Teresa to get recommendations for some activities while we were there, and they were fantastic too. I can't say enough about the Cape area, this house, or this rental group! We'll be back for sure!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing week at The Great Escape. The house was in very nice conditions. The kitchen(as many have mentioned) is very well stocked. Our only complaint...which is not really a the board walk has graduated steps down to the beach which makes it a little hard on a loaded down beach cart! The screened in porch area was great! That along with the sun deck offer great views of the beach and ocean sunsets! Our son slept on a twin air mattress in our bedroom so the grown-ups could stay up late and watch tv etc...just to note, it is a little tight with an air mattress in the bedroom....but nothing major! We would definitely recommend staying here!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Great Escape. The screened in porch was one of our favorite amenities. We ate every meal on the porch! The little outside porch was perfect for watching the sunset every evening.

I highly recommend Great Escape!!

This was our 3rd stay at the Great Escape. The upgrades were a great improvement. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary during this stay. We will be coming back again in the future. (The only issue that we encountered was the sporadic dropping of the wi-fi signal. This was a minor issue for us.)

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We are home after another wonderful week at Great Escape. We will never stay in another place if this home is available. And the folks at Teresa's Beach Homes are just great folks. It feels more like you are borrowing a friends house for a week than it feels like working with a rental company. Just don't tell anyone! This house is hard enough to get as it is!
