About Greg

I built the new home in 1995! Born & raised here in Hyannis just a half mile down the street. I have unique & extensive local knowledge which benefits vacation families quite frequently. I live very close by year round which is advantageous to vacationing families. I grew up around Cape Cod hospitality & it shows in our fantastic guest reviews. I have other properties as well. I'm the Cape Cod Vacation Expert you have been searching for....please allow me the opportunity to serve you, & your family.

Greg purchased this house in 1995

Why Greg chose Hyannis

Harbor Hide~A~Way was built by me with input from vacationing families like you. Our beach is only a two minute walk down a quiet dead-end our private / deeded access path. The awesome Nantucket Sound beach is free of a parking lot & bath-house, or lifeguard. Its' really all yours!!! This is a niche home with a very special niche beach. You won't find this situation elsewhere.

What makes this house unique

You feel a tremendous sense of privacy & seclusion, yet you walk only a mile to the historic Main Street Center of Hyannis. Your even closer to the inner Harbor to catch a ferry to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. Our beach is nor regulated like established - 'named' - town can understand the benefits this bring you & your family. Our large family reunions work due to the enormous size of the home & connection to the municipal sewer. Most Cape homes are on a private septic system which is overwhelmed by a large a family. We provide everything clean linens & towels & all those staples others don't provide.

I love it here!~

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (12 people total) stayed here for a week last summer. The accomodations were everything you could have hoped for. Affordable, clean, and big enough for all of us. You weren't actually on the beach, but you could walk there in under 5 minutes. The weather was perfect. Everything was close. There was something for everyone in our party ages 4 to 64. We would rent there again in a New York minute!

Awesome spot for a big family

  • 5 of 5

A great house and great location to enjoy Cape Cod with your family. We had a group of 11, ages 5-45. It was the perfect spot for us. A few steps from wonderful private beach where the kids love dot swim and hunt for sea life.

The house was well stocked with everything you need.

Definitely would go back.

This property is well worth the money

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 children and 8 adults visiting from Canada and parts of the US. The accommodation was everything we expected and more. Greg is a wonderful host and a great resource for everything local on the Cape. We took advantage of his offer to take our families around the bay in his boat and as a result learned local history of the area that we would not have learned otherwise. We also went whale watching on his recommendation and were able to view many families of whales. Well worth the time and money. We took advantage of the short walk to the sandy beach where the children built castles and enjoyed playing and swimming in the very warm water. The highlight of the day for the adults was relaxing and sharing stories on the beautiful secluded deck off the dinning room. I would highly recommend this rental.

Ideal location, truly a Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor Hide-Away for 6nights last week. We were absolutely thrilled with our accommodations. The home is fully appointed with everything you would need for a small or large group. The location is Mid-Cape and we extensively visited local beaches as well as National seashore beaches, and up to Provincetown for a day trip. We walked over to catch the ferry to Nantucket, the private beach is just a few minutes walk from the cottage. The owner Greg lives locally and was a bevy of information as to what to do and see and where to eat in the area. Greg was kind enough to take us for a boat ride and we enjoyed the scenery of Hyannis harbour and surrounding area. We can't wait to go back in 2015! This place is a real gem - well-maintained and very clean, and provides excellent value for your travel dollar.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Hide-A-Way is a wonderful home in a perfect location. Easy walk to the water and easy drive to locations on the Cape. The owner, Greg, is hands on and more than willing to work with you on your stay in his property. While this is where we stayed, he has other properties as well. Kind of like one-stop-shopping.

Looking for a place for your family to enjoy Cape Cod? Start may be a short search.

Great House for all ages

  • 5 of 5

This "Harbor Hidaway house is perfect for a large family(s). We had such a good time and enjoyed this home in 2012 we came back again in July 2013. We are a family of 12 adults and children ages 7 to 71 years. Nice large rooms and the 4-1/2 baths were great for a large group. The web site descriptions are very accurate. Plenty of towels, soaps, pots & pans, dishes, and hot water that never cools off. And the owner, Greg, is very welcoming and helpful. I would very much recommend this house for a pleasant Cape Cod vacation.

Car: recommended

Walk less than 3 minutes to your own ocean beach with private access at the end of our quiet dead-end street. You are only one mile from historic Main Street. You can walk less than a mile to Hyannis Inner Harbor to catch the ferries to Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket Islands. The harbor is filled with family activities like the Pirate Ship for young children, deep sea fishing, sightseeing to the nearby Kennedy Memorial & Kennedy Family Compound.

You will be able to access the entire Cape from our convenient location by hopping right onto the mid-cape highway. Arrive anywhere on Cape Cod from your base in Hyannis in 50 minutes or less.

Other Activities: Blue Crabbing, Kayaking, Canoeing, Deep Sea Fishing, Whale Watching
