About Amy Pirro

We currently live in Danbury, CT. My husband is a teacher. I am a former teacher who is now working as a lead store manager for a nationally-known, highly ranked grocery retailer.

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!

Map

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!

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.

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.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We live in Oregon and this was our first experience staying at a VRBO. We were not disappointed at all. Amy was wonderful to work with. Her home is very comfortable and cozy. Had everything that we could have needed plus it was very easy to locate the home. Loved the furnishings and decor. If we ever get back to Cape Cod, we would definitely stay there again. Thanks for helping in making this a very memorible vacation.

Great location for us! A perfect Cape house.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a secluded, quiet Cape Cod neighborhood for our short stay and this home delivered. The property owner was one of the best assets during our stay, providing excellent communication and mobile assistance. If there's something you see in the amenities description that you like, let the owner know ahead of time so it's there and expected. I was hoping to use the kayak on Long Pond but the oars were missing. It wasn't the end of the world. It's a great place!

Owner's Response: Glad that your short trip to the Cape was made enjoyable by your stay in our home! I love supporting my renters by being readily accessible for communication; I want to make sure that everyone who stays in our home is happy and satisfied with their rental experience. So sorry the kayak oars were MIA. You'll have to come back sometime for a paddle on the lake! We've got new oars that are ready for use!
