Why Melissa M. chose Cape Cod

Here is a recent review....

'We have been renting on the Cape and the Vineyard for more than 10 years. And I can honestly say that this is one of the most peaceful spots we have ever encountered.

The house opens on to Buck's Pond, which is quiet and freshwater. No engine noise. No overcrowding, just the occasional canoes, sunfish and paddleboards passing by.

The split-level house is built with a long porch facing the water and that is exactly where we started and ended our days. Just enjoying the view and the quiet that hung over the pond.

That said, the owners have also provided plenty of toys to enjoy the pond yourself: Canoe, sailboat and plenty of floaty toys. Our boys are 9 and 12 and they absolutely loved it.

We often over-schedule our vacation with day trips. Not this year. Being able to spill out onto the private beach and hit the water every day was perfect. No crowds and no waits.

On the few rainy days we had, the indoor ping-pong table was a godsend. We even spent hours competing even on the sunny days.

Harwich and Harwichport are only 10 minutes away or less. Chatham is very close as well when you feel like dinner out or taking on the summer crowds. Both are charming towns and worth a visit.

If you've rented as often as we have, you'll know that the experience starts with how the owners treat you, and I have to give Melissa very high marks. Polite, pleasant, and accommodating. A real pleasure to work with.

Big thumbs up from my family on this place. We plan to return next summer!'

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that my family (3 young kids plus my husband and I) came to stay in this amazing beach house. Last year, we stayed for 2 weeks and this year we were lucky enough to stay for 3 weeks. All 4 bedrooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen is modern and had everything we could have wanted or needed (we spent most meals grilling on the deck, though!) The upstairs and downstairs living areas are spacious, well laid-out, and comfortable with lovely views of the pond. Since our stay last year, both bathrooms were totally renovated (they are beautiful!) and the ground level floors were also re-done along with new living room furniture upstairs. There is a terrific enclosed outdoor shower and the shed is stocked with tons of fun things including various toys, tubes and rafts, a canoe, and a sunfish (There are also lots of toys, games, movies and books inside the house in case of a rainy day.) The pond is quiet and peaceful (perfect for paddleboarding, which we did lots of!) and the sandy beach at the house is one of the best beaches on the pond. We never visited the ocean in our 3 weeks of vacation because we had so much fun playing and relaxing on the sandy beach just outside our door! The house is in a very nice neighborhood that is fun to explore, and we were close enough to both Harwich and Chatham centers that we could pop in any time for a quick adventure. We really enjoyed some of the fun activities in Harwich such as the bike path, go-carts, bumper boats and zip line as well as all of the famous ice cream spots. The owners were extremely responsive and friendly if we had any questions. We are very eager for our vacation back at this beach house next year and for many years to come. We have made amazing memories here over the last 2 years and could not think of a better spot! I could not recommend this home more highly.

A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is by far the best beach house we have stayed at on Cape Cod. My husband and I and two children having been vacationing here every summer for the past 3 years. This house is always spotless when we arrive which is a big one for me. The kitchen has all the amenities....dishwasher, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot. The two full bathrooms (one upstairs and one down) are brand new. From the upstairs living room, you can walk out of the sliding glass doors to a large deck and enjoy the view of the water. The downstairs family room has sliders that open to the lawn and the beach. In the shed, there are toys, floaties, and beach chairs. Our kids can't wait to go back every year. For the past three summers it's been our home away from home.

A beautiful place right on the lakeshore.

  • 4 of 5

There were seven of us, two old fogies, two forty-something daughters, a son-in-law and two 8-year old grandchildren. Everyone loved playing with the boats and water toys and floating around in the sand-bottomed lake. We visited four different ocean beaches, also, so had the best of both worlds. The upstairs is bright and airy with air conditioners in main room and master bedroom, and an elegant bathroom. The basement is darker, and damp unless the dehumidifier is running and then you can't open the windows and doors, and the heat it gives off set off the smoke alarms at 2am the first night. Many light switches were hard to find --- not discovered until packing to leave. The heat and humidity the last three days was intense -- an air conditioner for the four people in the basement would have made our stay much more comfortable: lack of sleep made for some crankiness during the day. More places to hang towels are needed (one rod in each bathroom, no hook on door), also there were only four chairs at the table so we weren't able to eat together but split between table and counter. We had to buy plastic drinking glasses for kids to use. The cleaning crew hadn't been in, and got there just after we arrived so we went for groceries while they worked. Luckily the daughter with children didn't come until the next day. Need a broom and dustpan in the basement. But all-in-all we had a great time!
