We will keep coming back for more!
We have stayed at this property almost every year for about 10 years now. Whether it is summer or fall, we always have a wonderful stay because the house is so homey, the location is fabulous, and Colleen is wonderful to work with.
As other reviewers have noted, the kitchen is one of the best-stocked that you will find in a rental. It's got great appliances, cooking utensils, pots/pans, colanders. Not that you want to spend your entire vacation cooking, but it's nice to have what you need if you do decide to make your own food. The kitchen is a bright and cheery, and looks out to a nice little back yard. There is a dining table large enough to easily seat 6 and it also looks out to the back yard.
The living room couches are very comfortable, and the recliner is worth fighting over. There's a great flat-screen TV, and the built-in shelves surrounding the fireplace add a lot of warmth to the room, which also has a very large picture window looking out at the quiet side street that the house sits on. This year I noticed that guests had been leaving books on the shelves, and I brought home one that I am reading right now. I will return it next year!
I LOVE that this house has an outdoor shower. It is situated in the private back yard, and covered with sail cloth on top for privacy.
There is a garage for storing your bikes, etc. and Colleen has a good stock of beach chairs, beach carts, shovels, boogie boards, little tykes bikes, etc. There is also a gas grill outside next to the garage.
The location is awesome!! It's down a very quiet side street. My kids actually learned to ride their bikes here because there is so little traffic, and it's flat. It is just a short walk to Falmouth Heights Beach, so we load up a beach cart and off we go. If you don't feel like cooking or driving to eat, you can walk to the British Beer Company across from Falmouth Heights Beach.
And then there is the village. You are about a 5-minute drive from Falmouth Village, which is full of small shops and restaurants. It's one of the nicest downtown areas that I have found at the Cape. There is a dine-in movie theater within a 10-15-minute drive.
One of our absolute favorite things about this property is that it is fairly close to the Shining Sea Bikeway. If you don't want to bike to it, there are numerous parking lots along the route that you can drive to and hop on the path at that point. We love riding into Woods Hole for ice cream!
Marie, thank you for your generous review of our cottage! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself!
This is a beautiful and spacious house that really feels like home. It is impeccably clean and well maintained and has all amenities needed. The walking distance to the beach and island ferry and proximity to Falmouth makes the location perfect for a vacation with children - lots of activities and things to do. Coordinating with the home owner was also a pleasure. We enjoyed our stay and are very thankful to have had the opportunity to rent this house.
what a perfect week!
We loved this house! Terrific location to Falmouth Heights beach / restaurants and the center. Easy walk to beach - truly takes 5 minutes to walk there. House has plenty of room and all kinds of amenities ! Colleen is truly thoughtful and delightful to work with! We hope to be back soon!
You were a delightful guest and we are so happy that you enjoyed our cottage as muc has we do!
Great house great location. Had everything you would need. Clean and spacious
Carol, always a pleasure to have you and your family come to stay at our cottage!
Great house with a great location
This is the second year that we have rented this adorable house. It is always clean and well equipped for whatever you need. There is plenty of space and the garage is full of beach toys, beach buggies, etc. Just a short walk to the beach and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The outdoor shower is awesome and the owner is very nice to work with. We had to cancel our original reservation this year and there was no problem changing the date. I recommend this house to families looking for a great Falmouth vacation!
Awwwwww! It's always so heart-warming to hear that someone enjoys our cottage as much as we do. We try very hard to make it clean, comfortable and well equipped, beyond the typical rental. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed yourself. Thanks for the lovely review.
Beautiful Cape house in the perfect location!
I could not have found a more perfect home for my family vacation! My goal was to find a home on the Falmouth road race course so we could enjoy the atmosphere of the race weekend. This house was perfect! My family could walk to the mile 6 marker to watch us run by and when we finished the race, we were a .30 mile walk back to the house! Not only that, but the house is adorable, full of all the amenities of home and a short .30 mile walk to Falmouth Heights beach. Not to mention, we could walk to the Ferry and to the best bike rental place-Holiday Cycles.
I also want to mention that the outdoor shower was a huge highlight for us as well as the beach buggies and chairs in the garage to make for an easy trek to the beach with our coolers and beach toys.
Can't say enough about this house and its owner, Colleen. Can't wait to 'check back in' next year!!

28 Eldona Ave. in beautiful and convenient Falmouth Heights! New to the rental market! We've spent the last 10 years updating our cottage in a way that would blend the house's charm and the comforts of the modern amenities. This 'cape at the Cape' features two bedrooms downstairs (one queen; 2 twins) plus a full bath; the same configuration is also upstairs - two bedrooms (one queen; 2 twins) with another full bath; plus a fabulous outdoor shower with attached changing area. Hardwood floors on first floor, carpeting on the second floor. This home features central A/C, washer & dryer, dishwasher, 50' HDTV, VCR/DVD, and WiFi access with a full desk-set up in the master bedroom. The house is tucked away on a quiet street that even some long-time Falmouth residents have never heard of and it's only 3/10 of a mile to Falmouth Heights Beach, location of the best 4th of July fireworks on Cape Cod, as well as the finish line of the Falmouth Road Race. The Island Queen passenger ferry to Martha's Vineyard is right around the corner. There are three grocery stores within a mile, as well as Christmas Tree Shops and a wide variety of other shopping, making this cottage a top location - quiet street, close to the beach as well as the availability of all the necessities. PLEASE NOTE: ALL RENTALS ARE SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.
