About Michelle

We are so glad to share this house with others as it is truly a special place. Both my husband and I grew up on the southshore and summered on the Cape.

Why Michelle chose North Eastham

Our house was built by my father and grandfather which is now passed on to our family to yours. We hope you enjoy! It has very special meaning. .

Beautiful natural setting! A more informative, detailed listing would have been appreciated.

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about this house is the setting amidst the salt marshes and nature of Cape Cod! It is lovely! The sunsets are very beautiful and easy to enjoy off of the backyard deck. There is Wi-Fi (not in the listing). A more up to date and detailed listing would have been very helpful for us. We would not have rented this property given what we now know. It did not work for our family.

My review is 3 stars for the following reasons: 1. we rented this property instead of others because it had a hot tub. The hot tub was not in working order (and has subsequently been deleted from the listing). 2. the property is characterized as "waterfront" which was also a primary factor for us. It's better characterized as "marshfront" with a "water view". Its very pretty, but there is no direct walking access to the bay beaches that you see in the pictures. It is 9/10 of a mile to the public beach and, unless you have an Eastham sticker, you cannot park at the beach. 3. During our stay, there was never enough water in the tidal marsh to kayak anywhere. The listing should be clearer that this amenity is tide and rain dependent. 4. Linens are not included. Not mentioned in the listing at all! Michelle, the owner was kind enough to let us use extra linens from the garage but that required doing laundry upon arrival. I know that many rentals in the area do not provide linens, but that fact is always clear in the listing. 5. The towels that were provided were old and musty smelling. I suggest you rent or bring your own linens and towels. 6. General cleanliness of the home was good except for the kitchen. Old cabinets with lots of dishes, pots and pans, but not sure how thoroughly these things were cleaned. Ended up rewashing everything prior to use, especially pots and pans. 7. This home can sleep 7 but there isn't sufficient indoor or outdoor seating for 7. It's really most comfortable for 4-5, in my opinion ( ie TV room & patio). FYI- Master and room with twin beds is on the top floor with a large bath and beautiful view. Third bedroom is in the basement with a half bath. The second full bath is on the first floor next to the kitchen. So, the people sleeping in the basement need to come upstairs to shower.

Wonderful Getaway for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 4 weeks (mid Sept-Oct,2012) and found the property to be more than we had hoped for. The sunset views over the salt marsh were stunning. It was great to be able to paddle to the bay at high tide right from the bottom of the deck stairs. The house was clean and everything worked as expected (TV, music, appliances, etc) Location was very convenient to restaurants and supplies. We spent many days hiking Natn'l seashore trails, biking, beaching. Michelle was very pleasant to meet and to deal with throughout the rental. Hope to get to rejuvinate at the house again sometime!

What a wonderful house and so beautiful this time of year. Great views of Sunken Meadow marsh. So peaceful and relaxing. We'll definitely come back here.

The landlords are very helpful. If you're arriving at night, make sure to get directions from Michelle beforehand - it's easy to get to once you know where you're going!

Perfect outer Cape setting for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful setting overlooking the Audobon Sanctuary and to Cape Cod Bay beyond, with kayaking to the bay right in the creek off the back porch. Every sunset a new treat. The house had a lovely character and was charmingly appointed with all the amenties we look for after 20 years of renting experience. With two teenage girls and the occasional teenage friend staying for a day or two, the house had to allow flexible entertaining. There are so many different and pretty places to sit, including upper and lower decks, the spatious back yard and even a "secret" overlook beyond the garden.

Owners were very responsive to all questions and concerns and made sure everything was as it should be. Perfect location for getting to any of the National Seashore or bay beaches, with easy access to Orleans, Brewster, Wellfleet and Truro. Bike trail a quick ride away. One of the best places we've stayed and will definitely be #1 on our list for our next Cape vacation.
