Pack your bag, hit the road or head for the airport, cross the Canal and relax at the Cape. But don’t over-pack, our home has all the amenities to make your vacation as worry-free as possible, and the rest is only 5 minutes away. Beach chairs, to deck chairs, towels, linens, pantry supplies are all here so you don’t have to worry about it. And it’s all included in the rates.
Our house is a family and friend friendly property that we would love to share with you this year. We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac off Buck Island Road in West Yarmouth, just 5 minutes from everything. The Route 28 commercial district, with restaurants, shopping, amusements, is a half mile away. Hyannis, the “Capital of the Cape”, is 2 miles away and hosts numerous stores, restaurants, the Cape Cod Mall and the ferries and air links to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
You can take the kids to Route 28 for mini-golf or ice cream, drive or bike to numerous beaches, or just relax in our backyard.
Our house is set up for comfort and flexibility. There are 3 bedrooms, two have queen beds and one has twin beds. We also have a futon in the ground floor family room that opens into a double bed. Central A/C keeps everyone cool in the summer.
The center of the house is the new kitchen and living room on the main floor. The kitchen has the latest appliances including a versatile and powerful Jenn-Air stove, new refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and other appliances. Paul’s family was in the food and restaurant business for many years and you’ll find everything you need if you decide to cook at home.
Both the living room and kitchen have new hardwood floors that are a cinch to keep clean with the vacuum.
The living room seats 8 people on two couches. Entertainment consists of 56” flat screen TV with cable and Blu-Ray player in the living room We also have a 30” HD tube TV with cable (yes, it’s obsolete, but the picture is great) and a DVD player in the family room.
The ground floor family room doubles as an extra spacious bedroom with a futon bed, a full bath and TV.
Outside there is a porch & with an outdoor table seating 6-8, a grill stocked with propane, a large yard and a sense of peace and tranquility that is hard to come by. The house is a last one on a dead end street, and the street backs into a wooded area. You’ll see bunnies and occasionally turkeys in the front yard in the twilight hours.
It’s also an easy drive to great restaurants of all types in Hyannis, Yarmouth and Dennis. Hit the ferries to the islands of Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, take the kids to a mini-golf, trampoline park, many beaches or just unwind with a book in the shady backyard.
There are large and small beaches, beaches to keep teens happy (yes, they do exist), beaches perfect for small kids, beaches for windsurfing daredevils, all within 10-15 minute drive.

About Paul and Shelley
Shelley was born and raised in Massachusetts and her family has been vacationing on Cape Cod for several generations. They finally took the plunge and bought a home here a few years ago. Paul began coming to the Cape with Shelley and after a few years it just seemed natural to get a place of our own. When this house became available, we were thrilled with the opportunity to fix up a great house to be comfortable and inviting to our families and guests. After a year or so of renovations – new bathroom, kitchen, floors, you name it - we’re looking forward to sharing the house with our new friends.
Paul and Shelley purchased this House in 2011
Why Paul and Shelley chose West Yarmouth
We like Yarmouth for its accessibility from points off the Cape, and accessibility to everything on the Cape. Yarmouth is minutes from Hyannis, the center of Cape Cod and its largest town and airport. It’s near Route 6, the beach, Cape Cod Mall, Rt. 28 shopping and ferries to the islands. Our families have long summered in the Yarmouth area. Staying close to them was a given. This home was close to everyone and everyplace, but secluded enough to get away from everything when we needed a break.
What makes this House unique
We love the combination of a very quiet area at the end of a cul-de-sac (children can play outside!), but yet close proximity to beach(es) and other activities. The Rt 28 commercial strip is nearby, as is the city of Hyannis, the ferries to Nantucket and the Vineyard. The furthest point on the Cape, Provincetown, is less than an hour, the national seashore is 30 minutes. The house has every modern convenience, central air conditioning, cable TV, WiFi Internet access (or a cable if you’re old school) new bathrooms and kitchen, outdoor dining , shower and recreational space and new furnishings

Great house, great location
We came to visit cape cod for my 50th birthday and could not of asked for a better place to stay.
The house was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need, the only thing we found a little difficult was working the oven but that is only because we are from the UK ! (our ovens are completely different but we worked it out in the end).
Paul answered all our emails prior to and during our stay and Shelly's father was staying next door for the first weekend of our holiday,they could not of been more helpful in explaining how everything worked, where the local supermarkets are and the best restaurants to visit.
The house was within easy reach of the main highways and Hyannis which had some great shops, pubs and restaurants.
Cape Cod has been an amazing place to visit.
Thank you for the great review. We're glad we could make your 50th a special birthday.

The property was clean and well maintained. Nice wooded area!
You couldn't ask for anything more in a rental
My family (six adults) and I, spent a wonderful week at Paul and Shelly's rental. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and do their own thing. The view out the picture window watching wild turkeys walk buy every day was awesome. There was more than enough supplies, utensils, dishes, Etc. I have to say it was just like picking up your own home and dropping it on his plot of land.
Paul, Shelly THANK YOU for allowing us, and others to enjoy the beauty of your house, and the area it is in.
Thanks for the kind words. We enjoyed hosting you and we're glad your trip went so well. We hope you'll return again!
