Best summer summer home around!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house for three weeks in July 2017. We were extremely happy. The house was very clean when we arrived and it has all the standard amenities – a fully stocked kitchen with a microwave, a washer/dryer (hint: a bit noisy to use after you go to bed), a dishwasher, central air, 2 TVs, 2 refrigerators (one in the garage), outdoor seating area, and an outdoor shower (it’s a fabulous outdoor shower!). There are also a few non-standard amenities – a coy pond in the front yard (very peaceful), a ping pong table in basement, basketball hoop (and basketball!) in driveway and 6 beach chairs.

The house sleeps 10 comfortably. And, we were the first visitors who were able to use the new sun porch. The sun porch gave us a quiet place to read the paper, drink coffee or just talk when family members were waking up or going to bed (or napping!) It’s a very comfortable room that overlooks the back wooded area.

The location of the house is great, only 2 minutes to US 6, a couple of minutes (by bike) to Cape Cod Bike trail, 10 minutes to Harwich (and the beaches) and Brewster, 15 to Chatham.

The house is also wheelchair accessible – something that was important to us! We were able to bring our son who has cerebral palsy – who hasn’t been able to join us on the Cape for years because we couldn’t find an accessible home. The house has a couple of ramps – we recommend the one through the garage because it’s so easy to navigate into the house.

The neighborhood is lovely – nice people (found someone who sells eggs from her chickens) and some wildlife to see (wild turkeys, deer, rabbits, plenty of birds including hawks, and a coyote or two at dusk or later.)

The owners, Leanne and Michael, are extremely responsive (and kind) -- they were available by phone and text anytime we had a question.

In short, this is a fabulous place in a wonderful area on the Cape. We loved the house (and the owners) and hope to return next summer!

The Best House on the Street

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the Memorial Weekend and as soon as we pulled up the property we were in awe. This property was the best looking house on the property and the curb appeal really stood out especially the koi fish pond. The house was better than the photos and there was a lot of space and the kids enjoyed being able to run around the yard. The rooms were huge and accommodated everyone that came on the trip. The house had everything we needed and the grocery store was close by. Leanne the owner was awesome to work with and very responsive especially since I had a question for her everyday she answered quickly and professionally. She made everything really easy and our stay very pleasant. The West Dennis beach was close and great for the kids as its family friendly and convenient. There were also some great restaurants around the area. The Kids were able to play Ping Pong, Foosball and darts in the basement. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and if we ever stay in Harwich we will be saying here again.

Definitely Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

Every year my old college roommates and I get together on the Cape for our annual Girls Weekend. We have been going to the same place for over ten years, but this year is the first year that our usual place was unavailable. We scrambled to find a new place and found this property. It looked great online, but when we got there, I have to say it surpassed all of our expectations. The property was immaculate - tastefully decorated, bright and welcoming, pristine - and the owners thought of everything. Fresh linens, everything you need to cook a meal, a beautiful patio out back and even a fish pond out front! The owners really care about the experience of their guests -- and it showed.

The bike path is a short walk away, and we all took a beautiful walk on the bike path, past the Cranberry Bogs and two fresh water lakes that I never even knew existed! Downtown Harwich was just a short drive away, and we had a nice afternoon visiting the many quaint shops. The restaurants are all top-notch and we had a lovely meal downtown. Then we went to the beach on Bank street and enjoyed the peace and quiet & sunshine, and even saw a seal swimming along in the ocean! By the time our weekend was coming to a close, I was on the phone with my husband, telling him about the property. We will definitely rent this property again, not only for girls weekend, but as a family for our summer vacation - it is even big enough to accommodate two families, without being crowded. The rooms are spacious and there are three bathrooms plus a large basement with a ping pong table, etc. that my teenagers will no doubt love. And the outdoor shower provides the ultimate Cape experience.

If you're looking for a nice property to rent on the cape, this has everything. Close to the bike path, beaches, fresh water lakes, downtown shopping and restaurants - it is a little slice of heaven!

Great Cape Rental

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute plans to go to the Cape for our girl's April vacation and stayed at this lovely home. What a great rental home! The owners were very accommodating to our last minute needs. When we arrived, the house was clean and they had left a bag of Cape Cod Chips (my family's favorite!) on the island. The house is located perfectly on the Cape, close to Harwich center, Bank Street Beach and right near the bike path. We were happy to be able to use the bikes they provide (I think there were 5 altogether, including a smaller one for younger kids). The neighborhood is quiet with hardly any traffic, so we felt comfortable biking and rollerblading on the streets. Also, they have air hockey, ping pong, fooseball, and a dart board in the basement for the one rainy day we had. We have rented houses on the Cape before, and this one was, by far, the best - we will be coming back this summer. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a nice quiet well kept neighborhood.

Excellent location close to the Route 6 which was ideal for our trip, site seeing , shopping with time to enjoy the great restaurants in Chatham, Orleans and Brewster. The home is very well kept and has everything you need. The owners were nice and very helpful! We found the flyer for George's Pizza in the folder it was a great recommendation for our first night in:)

The added bonus was having the home be wheel chair accessible (the ramp out front and in the garage along with the perfect master bath.)
