About Amy Pirro

We currently live in Danbury, CT. My husband and I are both teachers: he teaches music and I teach science.

I started my teaching career on Cape Cod and have also worked as an environmental educator/researcher for the National Seashore, Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary, and Cape Cod Museum of Natural History. I have dreamed about owning a Cape Cod house since I was a child and used to vacation in Dennisport with my parents and sister. Now my dream is reality and my husband and I want to share our home with you!

Amy Pirro purchased this house in 2012

Why Amy Pirro chose South Yarmouth

Cape Cod is my favorite place in the whole world. I vacationed every summer on the Cape as a child, had grandparents that retired in East Dennis, held summer jobs during college, started my teaching career in Falmouth, was proposed to by my husband on Great Island in Wellfleet, and now have a second home in South Yarmouth. When I cross the Bourne Bridge and come on Cape, I always feel a sense of peace and of coming home. I hope you will end up loving this beautiful place and our new home as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood our home is in is perfect in so many ways. It is quiet but close to everything: shopping, restaurants, sound and bay beaches, churches, and beautiful Long Pond. When we found this house we couldn't get over its location. The house itself is also perfect in so many ways: sunny deck, beautiful gardens, large, new kitchen, huge living room, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a cozy sunroom, and lots of closet space! Plus, we've got the most essential component of a Cape home: an outdoor shower!

Beyond perfect!

  • 5 of 5

No wonder the reviews are consistently 5 stars! I would award more stars, if I could. The house is exactly as pictured, impeccably clean and very inviting. We were able to relax comfortably in the living room, the kitchen was squeaky clean, open and updated (we didn't use it due to our short stay) and the yard was private and spacious. The ensuite half bath was an added convenience since we were six adults relying on one bathroom--the weather did not permit use of the outdoor shower, unfortunately. The owner and her housecleaner were extremely cooperative, caring and flexible. My best advice is don't hesitate.

Loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Cape to visit family in January - not exactly the greatest time of year to be on the Cape! However, Amy's house was amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed a few sunny days on the Cape in January. The house is very well equipped - we cooked and served a big family dinner during our stay. Everyone was very impressed by how homey, comfortable, and big the house was.

The house is well located, and there were quite a few delicious restaurants nearby that weren't closed for the season. It was also a quick drive over to Chatham to spend the afternoon. I also asked Amy about places nearby to go for a run - she went above and beyond giving us options. She even sent maps with routes! We had a fantastic time, and we will definitely try to rent her house next time we are there to visit family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that great feedback. We love making our home feel like a home away from home for all our guests. I also love when I have the opportunity to talk about the Cape and answer questions about attractions and things to do. Please come back and stay with us again!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Amy’s property is simply wonderful. The house was exactly as we expected and as per previous excellent reviews. As it was Christmas and we were travelling from Ireland Amy had decorated the house for us. We arrived to see a beautiful Christmas tree lit up in the front window. This was way beyond our expectations and a really kind and thoughtful surprise. We had everything we needed and when we had a little trouble with the tv (our own doing) Amy was on hand immediately to help us get sorted. The cottage is very comfortable and conveniently located to route 28 and for picking up the highway. Our family of 4/5 adults had plenty of room . Amy has provided lots of games and books etc to keep everyone occupied. The pond is a very short walk away and when we return for a summer vacation we will definitely use the kayaks provided. Thanks Amy for making our Christmas family vacation one to remember.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased we chose this property for our vacation, it was excellent!

As per other reviews the house is exactly as pictured, clean and very inviting. We were able to relax comfortably in the living room, the kitchen was open and had everything we could possibly need whilst there...we particularly loved the coffee machine! The yard was very tidy and spacious, and had the weather been more favorable we would have loved to have made use of the barbecue grill, seating and outdoor shower. The garage is also stocked with a variety of things to use...our son loved heading to the nearby park to play basketball.

The property location also suited us as it was not far from Route 6 and everything we planned on visiting was within an hours drive.

The owner was extremely helpful and provided a vast amount of information on things to do in the local area. Amy was also extremely quick at responding to any queries we had.

Should we stay in Cape Cod in the future we will definitely look to use this property again

A very lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this Cape Cod house. Everything you could possibly need was there. And everything worked! The couch and chairs were comfortable as was the bed. It was decorated with a fun Cape Cod theme. We sat outside some on the deck. There is an outdoor shower available which I understand to be a classic item in Cape Cod. We didn't try it out though

We loved walking around the neighborhood. It is such a nice area. And Long Pond is close by and also very beautiful. It was very peaceful and quiet there, which is just what we needed.

Amy was very easy to work with. She answered all my questions in a very short time.

I would love to come back and hope we can soon.

A TRULY close-to-all Cape Cod home. Walk one block over to Long Pond and Wing's Grove Park for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and playground. 5 minute walk to restaurants: lobster houses, chinese, vietnamese, pizza, homemade ice cream. Stroll down to the Bass River bridge with your fishing pole or explore Yarmouth's historic district. Grab your golf bag and hit the links at Blue Rock, Bayberry or Bass River golf courses or go on a kayak tour on the Bass River. Take a 1-3 mile drive to West Dennis Beach or any of the Town of Yarmouth Sound Beaches. Want to go to the ocean beaches? How about a 20 to 30 minute drive to Nauset or the National Seashore? Like the Bay beaches instead? Mayflower and Chapin beaches are only 15 to 20 minutes away! Plus, the shopping, mini-golfing, restaurant-ing and antiquing experience of Route 28 is right next door. Yet, when you're in our home, you'll feel like you're miles away from it all. Quiet neighborhood, good-sized yard, inviting deck...all waiting for you if you just want to hang around and swing in our hammock instead!
