About Mike and Ann Feenan

Ann and I are parents and grandparents who grew up in new England. We selected Falmouth because it avoids the heavy traffic of route 6, and its close to Martha's Vineyard for day excursions. We have 6 grown children, and are globe trotters

We enjoy evenings out at the dozens of opinions in Woods Hole and Falmouth. Guests sometimes take a trip to Hyannis to see the Kennedy compound or the outer cape to explore the National Seashore. Bike paths throughout falmouth mean extended family fun up and down the coast line

Why Mike and Ann Feenan chose Falmouth Heights

We chose this home because it is waterfront, and private. We know the area and decided to purchase within a few blocks of were our family has stayed for the last 15 years. After searching, we found the perfect retreat. Large enough for 3 couples, a family or extended family, but still affordable.

We like to Canoe and Kayak, and with no public launch area... Little pond is used mainly by local residents, so you can paddle in peace!

What makes this house unique

ZERO traffic, quite sunrise and you can sun all day on water side deck

safe street

walk to 2 beaches Falmouth Heights Beach and Bristol Beach

5 minute drive to ALL Falmouth beaches

WALK to Martha's Vineyard ferry..no parking cost! you can bring your bike over on the MV ferry too!

Beautiful location, well kept and appointed property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house. The location was beautiful right at the edge of a lake, just a few blocks from a sandy ocean beach. The house was well kept, clean and offered everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Nice house. Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house with a view which stays with you after you leave. The best way to wake up each day is with coffee on the deck. Kitchen has all you need. The owners left us a nice basket with information about the area, wine and crackers. The house is clean, beds are comfortable, the beach is a quick and lovely 5 min walk. We had our dogs with us and the owners even provided us with a gate and dog bed. Really can't say enough nice things about the area, the house and the owners. We came for the local dog show and the bike trails. The Shining Sea Bike Trail is close enough to ride to, the Cape Cod Rail Trail and the Colony Trail you have to drive to but it's worth the trip. There is plenty to do in Falmouth and Mashpee is also very nice.

Great home, great location. Everything you need for a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house Mike and Ann have provided is amazing. We could walk to two great beaches and enjoying beautiful evenings on the deck.

The kids could safely ride bikes in the neighborhood and walk to many shops and stores. You are right around the corner from the ferry to MV and a stroll to Falmouth town shops and restaurants.

Loved it.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing in Falmouth since I was a child so obviously we love the area. This was our first time staying at this rental and we were thrilled. The house was perfect for our family and we loved that we were able to bring our dog with us. The property is located on the water and we loved sitting on the deck at night enjoying the view. The owners, Mike and Ann, were very accommodating and made us feel right at home. The house is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We are looking forward to booking with them again next year.

Open sunny peaceful and clean

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home with gorgeous views of Little Pond! You can be entertained for hours watching various species of birds from the large deck. Evenings are beautiful, and perfect for stargazing if you bring a telescope! Lovely location, clean and comfortable home with all appliances. If you don't like keurig coffee, bring a French press or coffee maker. Get a croissant at the patisserie in Falmouth Village, they are the real deal!!!!
