About Elsbeth Rowaan-Bartlett
My husband and I have lived in and traveled to many places around the world and currently live on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. Our daughters are off to college giving us more time to travel ourselves. .We love staying in rental properties in our travels. Not only is this usually a more economical equation, but I like feeling that I'm 'living' the local life when exploring a new place.
Elsbeth Rowaan-Bartlett purchased this House in 2009
Why Elsbeth Rowaan-Bartlett chose Centerville
We bought our Cape house in 2009 to be closer to family in the summer and bring our teenage daughters closer to their summer activities. We haven't regretted our purchase for one single moment. From watching the birds on the back deck or dock, riding our bike into Osterville for a coffee or a paper, to kayaking straight from our own dock to long beach. Our kids love going to Craigville beach, stopping for ice cream at Four Seas, or going to the mall or movies with their summer friends. It is close to everything without sacrificing the peace and quiet you crave while being on vacation.
What makes this House unique
Our house is on a dead end street with a path to a shared dock (4 houses), perfect for kayaking or just watching the world go by with a glass of wine at the end of the day!

Great place and area. We will be staying here again!
Quiet, secluded but close to shopping and night life. Perfect spot for the introvert and extrovert alike.
Fabulous Cape House
This is a wonderful house for family get togethers. Plenty of space for everyone, fully equipped with a great game room, beautiful family room and a perfect kitchen. Elsbeth is absolutely wonderful, gracious and very responsive. The best VRBO experience, ever! Thank you, Elsbeth for your hospitality and sharing your wonderful home.
This home is fantastic!
This is one of the best properties we've ever rented - the owners take great care of their home and it is a wonderful place to stay. Every amenity you could possibly want - fully stocked kitchen, wonderful backyard, hot tub and incredible game room/basement so teenagers are completely happy. House is immaculately kept and location is convenient to explore the mid-Cape area - though morning walks can be a bit of a challenge due to the lack of sidewalks but that has nothing to do with the house. Otherwise perfect!
Better than you think
AMAZING! This property was WAY better than our already high expectations. The pictures on the VRBO site actually doesn’t do proper justice. The interior design as well as landscape design are warm, inviting and beautiful.
Our group couldn’t stop talking about the house from the beginning of the trip until the very end. We had an action packed trip on the cape full of outdoor activities and yet the house was still the highlight of our trip by far.
THE GAME ROOM IS AMAZING. Bedrooms are great! Backyard was way bigger than we thought (perfect for a frizbee catch), and the deck in the back with it’s furniture is the icing on this cake.
VRBO, in general, has me now sold for my next rental and this house has me sold for my next trip to the cape.
Lovely, quiet home away from home
I have stayed in many VRBO properties. This one was different. It felt like we were guests in the home of a dear friend. EVERY amenity possible was included. We all wanted to move in and never go home! The beach is close by, and the kayaking is fabulous. Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, delightful back yard. What more can you ask? Stay here; you won't regret it.
Relax and let all your stress melt away
Lovely home well located that offered up a great time for our first visit to the area. Owners Elsbeth and Niall are very gracious owners who were quite helpful and communicative. The house is very well laid out, nicely decorated and balances coziness while being very spacious and able to accommodate good size families who can be doing a variety of activities without being on top of one another. The game room in the basement was a big hit with lots of fun being had playing pool and ping pong. The garden is a serene oasis and the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine in the evening. I appreciated Elsbeth's generous offer to use herb garden and we benefited from some lovely chives, tarragon and mint! We enjoyed our stay in this lovely property and highly recommend it.
