About Donna or Steve

We have owned the Barking Urchin since 2003, and use the house ourselves in the Fall and Spring. We love how pretty and unspoiled Eastham still is, how quiet our street and neighborhood are, and our easy walks to Campground or Thumpertown beaches (and the Hole in One in the mornings!) We keep our home to the highest standards that we would expect for a Cape family vacation home.

Donna or Steve purchased this house in 2003

Why Donna or Steve chose Cape Cod

After three years of looking, we found the 'right' house in the best location!

What makes this house unique

Easy access to the Bay (1 mile). Sunny, well-equipped home. Private fenced in yard. Comfortable rooms, newer mattresses. Updated kitchen, dishwasher. A/C units. HDTV and broadband internet, WiFi. Finished basement family room. Washer/dryer downstairs. All the amenities you need for your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After two weeks of glorious bliss and much needed relaxation, we try to replicate the rhythm of the Cape at home, but alas, the sounds of the ocean and leisurely walks on the beach are sacred to the shores.

Perfect house for my family of 5!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing was very accurate, pictures capture all that the house has to offer. upon arrival we found the house clean and ready for us to move right in! Location is perfect, we love to bike to the beach every day and it was a relatively easy ride to nauset light and coast guard beach. The house had everything we needed including an excellent outdoor shower! Dana is very friendly and easy to work with, a total pleasure to deal with. Thanks!!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th year coming to the cape. We love North Eastham and this house was a perfect fit for our family of 4! Plenty of space and a great deck for outdoor meals. We loved the out door shower! It was the hottest week of the season and we were very appreciative of the A/C. We biked to Brewster on the rail trail and biked to the bay and ocean side of the beach multiple times. Sam's deli is super close for great breakfast sandwiches as well as other local restaurants. We really loved the house and location! It was a wonderful experience.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our second summer at the Barking Urchin where we biked to the ocean or the bay each day. The house is in a great location with easy access to everything in Eastham and surrounds such as the rail trail and local eateries. It was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Dana and Steve could not have been more kind and helpful.

Lovely home for a family getaway

  • 3 of 5

The house is very clean and in a great location. It is bright and airy and Eastham is a wonderful place to vacation. The beaches are wonderful and you have your pick of great restaurants. Do not miss biking on the Rail Trail!

It would be useful for the owner to provide a few more basics: salt, pepper, matches for the grill, and a toaster to replace the toaster oven and an urgent care phone number and location. Other than that you had everything you needed.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, we're always interested in ways to make our vacation home even more comfortable for our valued guests. We always stock salt and pepper and numerous other spices, we're sorry that the guests couldn't locate these during their stay. We also have added a brand new stainless four slice toaster. We enjoy gourmet cooking, so we try to accommodate our foodie guests as best we can. Warm regards, the Barking Urchin.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week- the house is great- clean, very well equipped kitchen, but very close to many restaurants for take out or eat in. Great deck for outdoor meals, and a superb outdoor shower.

Owners left a great book full of suggestions and information on the area.

Great location close to bay or ocean beaches. We can't wait to go back!
