The large, private backyard has a heated, in-ground, fenced-in swimming pool, brick patio with a new Weber gas grill, and outdoor shower.

About Julie Gesner

We live outside of Boston with our two children. We love to travel, ski, surf and hang at the beach and pool. While incredibly busy as two full-time working parents, we try to enjoy our life to the fullest with as much vacation time as we can take!

Julie Gesner purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Gesner chose Cape Cod

We chose Osterville because it is a short 1.5 hour drive from our primary home and Boston. We chose the Wianno area of Osterville because it is a short walk to either the beautiful village of Osterville or the warm waters of Dowses Beach. We love the expanded living space of our home so the entire extended family can relax together and not feel crowded. We chose this house specifically for the kid-friendly location on a quiet residential street and it's amazing back-yard. We wanted to be able to ride bikes around the circle and relax by the the heated pool after a day at the beach and also have room to BBQ, play yard games and throw a baseball. We love to entertain and this is the perfect home to do so.

Perfect House for Cape Cod Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came to Cape Cod for a wedding at the Wianno Club and wanted to turn our trip into a long weekend. This house was exactly what we were looking for. Location was perfect, incredibly short drive to our destinations, great neighborhood and of course, the pool was AWESOME. Highly recommend heating the pool to anyone who goes. House was clean, everything was updated, plenty of space, great beds, really nothing negative I can say!! Would absolutely stay at the same house if/when we go back. Even past the house, amazing property managers. Provided extensive information on the house, area, even surrounding towns/cities. Fantastic all-around trip!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were four older guys here to play golf. The house could not have been better. Great location, great accommodations. Landlord couldn't have been nicer nor more accommodating. I'd give it 5 stars....

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the house for a girl's weekend in the off-season, but could easily see how much fun it would be to spend a week together in Osterville over the summer. Close to town and the beaches, the house is tucked in a quiet neighborhood making you feel as though you are truly a resident in the local community. Not that we needed this, but there was plenty of room to spread out and every basic need was thought of -- from a fully supplied kitchen to games and other amenities. It was easy to forget you were in a rental in this home away from home!
