About The Owner

We are a small family with lots of friends and relatives. We purchased the home in 2001 as primarily for our love of golf and the beach. We decided Mid Cape and specifically West Yarmouth because there are so many things to do for all ages alike within minutes of the home. Since 2001, we have finally just about finished our full renovation of our charming home and enjoy staying there in all four seasons of the year. The Cape has so much to offer all year round.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Cape Cod Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful, classic Cape Cod house with plenty of room for our 3 couples. Location is West Yarmouth was perfect for us as first-time visitors. The house would be excellent for families with kids and friends, especially in the summer, as there are nooks, crannies and "secret" bedrooms throughout. The house was comfortable and served us well. John provided excellent recommendations as to things to do and places to eat (especially the Black Cat in Hyannis). We were busy each day exploring the Cape - Province Town, Martha's Vineyard, Plymouth, and of course the light houses. John responded to our inquiries in a timely manner - sorry we didn't get to meet him in person.

My family and I had the opportunity to stay in this home for part of kids school vacation. We love the Cape and this house is situated in a great mid-cape location. Minutes away from almost any activity we wanted to do with the kids, movies, mall, mini golf, restaurants, Cape Base Ball league games, the ferries to the islands and a three minute walk to the beach (which now due to a beautiful new patio the owner has put in the front yard), which can be seen while sitting on the patio. The street could not have been anymore peaceful and the beach is very picturesque. We actually went swimming on the Friday! The owner could not have been more helpful with suggestions for places to eat, where to go for fun , etc.

The home is exactly as the owner describes. It is a very charming and cozy home. It is clear John takes great care to make sure the home is put together comfortably for his guests. The beds are extremely comfortable and all 5 kids stayed in the kids room , which also were very comfortable beds as well.

Loved the little office with desk, since I had to work a couple of days during my stay. He also just had refinished the hard wood floors in the house and you could tell by how wonderful they looked.

We will be back. Thanks for all the assistance during our stay John.

Second stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house back in 2008 as well. We were informed by the owner that he had done a number of upgrades since our first stay. He was honest in his representations. While it is an older charming cape home as he describes and couple of rooms are a little tight on space, he has the house set up as best as we think he could and pretty much all new furniture and mattresses, which we could tell. Bathrooms while not big, were also updated as well, which we loved. The street is as peaceful as it could get and we now know after his steering us to Sept that it really is a GREAT time to visit the Cape and at a discounted price. !

He forgot to mention to us he also built a new large free standing stone patio with water views in the front yard. The best place to have a few beers or cold glass of wine at the days end. A great place to sit and hangout.

Look forward to our next stay a few years down the line.

Wonderfully Welcoming & Ideally Located

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for Memorial Day Weekend May 22nd-May 25th 2015.

We had an incredibly wonderful time - the house is spacious, with lots of room for games, activities, relaxing and many rooms to accommodate a large group. The kitchen was perfect for our weekend, we were able to BBQ easily and found all the equipment we needed. We spent a great amount of time on the outside chairs and the long table that comfortably sat our entire group for enjoyable dinners!

We adored the fact that the linens were provided, that we were literally 2min walking from the beach, about 30/35min walk to Main Street Hyannis... the cleanliness as well as the convenience of working with the owner to accommodate all our needs.

It's clear that this place is used to receiving groups because we never ran out of anything. We definitely recommend it to families and large groups; the peacefulness of the neighborhood as well as the proximity to the mall and other entertainments make it an ideal spot!

Wonderful home, Great location and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there with my husband, in laws and sister and husband and 4 children. The home was very charming and pretty much all the furniture is new. The bathrooms looked newly redone and the home was spotless upon our arrival. It was great to have a bedroom with a small bath to itself on the first floor for my elderly parents. The picnic table was great to eat at all week, but the front yard adirondack chairs were a big hit as well. The area is as the owner describes. It is such a charming street with a great feel to it, quiet and nice neghbors etc, but so close to almost anything you would want to do on vacation within a 2 to 10 minute drive, for kids, adults or the entire family. We are sold on the mid cape! Thanks, John for the pitch....... great location and minutes to the ferries to the island! . Loved that.

4th of July 2011!

  • 5 of 5

I just fnished up an amazing week on the cape. We stayed in the house from July 2-9 and could not have had better weather! It was my 30th birthday and wanted to do something fun and special for it along with the 4th of July. The house was great, clean and comfortable. The house came fully equiped with everything from sheets and towles to utensils and cooking supplies. We brought our own beach towles but they were even there for us. The private beach at the end of the street was great; we went to the public beach, paid for parking but worth it, a lot. It is only a 8 min drive from the house. The neighborhood is very quite but all of the neighbors are friendly.

We went into Hyanis for dinner a few nights which is just a short car ride away. We also went to some of the bars around the area as well and had a blast! We went mini golfing at Pirates Cove and bowling one raining day. We had such a great time we are thinking of doing it again next year!

John (the house owner) and his assistant, were so helpful with staying in contact and even stopping by the house to make sure we had everything we needed and give suggestions of places to go. The week was great, I could not have asked for a better birthday in a better place!
