- The house was completely renovated in 2010 and is in immaculate condition. The upstairs family room and both upstairs bedrooms have window air conditioning units. Downstairs portable air conditioner. Additional a/c cooling units are in house for warmer weather, but breezes are typically nice on the river if you open the front door (screened). 2011 was the first year for renting. You will enjoy all new furniture, wall art, furnishings, etc. We stay for part of the summer, so you can be assured the amenities will be just as we would expect of a place we would rent! Reference to upstairs is actually at street level. House is on slopped site, so the entry level is at street level and the downstairs opens to backyard and river, including a paved patio. Regular cleaning fee of $150 is in addition to rental fee....moreless

About the owner: John is from Boston and MaryAlice is from Houston. We are both working professionals and love spending as much time as we can at our home on the Cape in West Dennis. John grew up spending summer vacations in West Dennis, so we have a real connection to this area. We've been visiting the cape as a family for over 15 years. We currently live in Houston. John is a ship captain and manages a fleet of vessels for his company, and MaryAlice is a professor. We have family in the Boston area. John went to school at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and MA at MIT and UT Austin.
Why the Owner Chose West Dennis, Dennis, MA, USA:
We bought our home because we were looking for a perfect spot for retirement and enjoyment. We love this location because it is on a private street, so it is safe and quiet, yet we are close to everything that we love about the cape. When we bought our home we loved that it was just renovated because that allowed us to put on some finishing touches (downstairs patio, outdoor shower and new lawn and landscaping) but also start from scratch on furnishing it. Being in the mid-cape means we can do more in less time. We love sunsets at Grays Beach or Mayflower Beach's long low tide walks. We love the convenience of South Dennis Beach and the great walks we get in from our house to the beach. We love putting in kayaks at the town pier just a few minutes walk from our house, or fishing right off of it. And we love that kayak and paddle board rentals are just across from our place by the marina. There's so much to do in this area - golf, bike riding, hiking, kayaking, go carts, eating, ice cream! and much more that we just love.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we were shopping for a home to purchase, we walked in and instantly loved our home. The kitchen was perfect for our lifestyle and we loved the openness. The wood floors, granite countertops and balcony with great views of the river were a quick sell for us. We hope you will love it just as much!
