About Michael Moniz

We purchased our 'home away from home' in April 2014. Our first goal was to renovate this lovely home for our family and our guests. We wanted to make sure that our guests enjoyed their stay as much as we do. We love the Cape, and have been going there for over 30 years. We are thrilled with our cottage, especially after the initial renovations made. We continuously make improvements and work dilegently maintain out cottage - it's our labor of love!

Living just outside of Boston is an added convenience which allows us to visit the Cape often. Most importantly - we are close by for our renters if they need us.

Why Michael Moniz chose Yarmouth

The location is amazing - centrally located on the Cape, making it convenient for your Cape excursions. Our home is located in a quiet neighbhorhood however close to many activities, beaches, shopping and more. There are numerous salt water and fresh water beaches nearby. The closest salt water beach, located on Nantucket Sound, is Bass River Beach, only a little over 1 mile from the cottage.

There are also great amenities and numerous places to eat and shop. It is set back off the road with access to a bike/walking path in front of the cottage. It is close to Rt. 6 and Rt. 28 - making it easily convenient to explore all of Cape Cod. Several Public Golf Courses, tennis courses and public Recreation Areas are close by.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the layout of our home with the open living area, the abundance of natural light, its convenient location, and the feeling of warmth it offers. The private outdoor shower, made of composite decking, and 2 level outdoor deck with a privacy fence were a must for those wonderful sunny days for grilling and relaxing after a day at the beach. You can spend the day on the deck sunning, grilling and using the large patio cooler to save trips to the kitchen for a cool beverage. There is a ping-pong table located in the semi-finished basement along with golf putting practice cup, club and golf balls for your enjoyment.

The home is set back and elevated from the road, it's minutes away from Rte. 28 and Rt.6. for your Cape Cod excursions. We have the best of both worlds here - quite yet close to all the fun.

The convenience of weekly trash pick up is included.

Wonderful Vacation in a wonderful Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

Last year we decided to spend our vacation on Cape Cod because of our daughter who spent a High School Year in the US and we found Michael and Phyllis's wonderful cottage! When we arrived we immediately felt like being home! Everything was perfect! The house has everything you need, it is close to several great beaches, shops and restaurants and towns like Provincetown aren't far away. We were touched by Michael and Phyllis's hospitality! They solved all our little "problems", so that we could arrive from Germany without any difficulties and immediately enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others and we can't wait to come back there again next summer!

This was our first time at this home, The furnishings and decor are beautiful, right out of a magazine, and everything is well cared for with A/C for those hot summer days. It's conveniently located close to the beaches, shops, local restaurants, miniature golf, and grocery store. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a great stay in Cape Cod. We will definitely rent this home again next summer.

Delightful Cape Cottage - Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described (modern, charming, clean, comfortable) and outfitted with nearly everything a family could need for a great vacation: beach gear, cooking equipment, games. Michael and Phyllis had a gracious gift waiting for us at arrival filled with useful items to make our stay more comfortable and some lovely beach mementos -- including gold leafed shells and a vial of sand from the local beach in Yarmouth. My 7 year old was delighted. The spot was a great location for day trips all over the Cape and convenient grocery stores and activities (beaches, mini golf, restaurants, playground) nearby. The spacious garage was useful for storing our bicycles. The outdoor shower was spectacular -- we didn't use the indoor one at all! Everything was labelled and easy to find. We had a wonderful time. The one recommendation we have is that with the cool weather in the evenings, it would have been nice to allow the breeze to come through the front door (as well as the back) and a screened front door would have been a huge plus. Maybe a future improvement? In all, a lovely spot and highly recommended! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Nicole - so rewarding to hear back from our guests that they enjoyed thier stay. The outdoor shower and deck was this spring's project so we're very excited to hear you enjoyed it! We are sincere when we say it's our labor of love. Definately will have the screen in place for the front door - agree the cross breeze in the cool evenings is wonderful. We look forward to making more improvments each year. It's nice to know your daughter enjoyed the momentos of your stay (gold leaf clamshell & bottle of sand) - we enjoyed making those together for our guests. It was a pleasure to have you and your family spend your vacation at our cottage. Hope to have you back again! Michael & Phyllis

Dream come true

  • 5 of 5

We truly cannot say enough about how wonderful this home is. I think the best evidence is that we chose to return for a second year in a row! Coming back we wondered could this home really live up to it's memory in our minds- and not only did it live up, it exceeded our memories, partly because of improvements the owners had made to an already updated, clean, well thought-out and beautiful property. Since our stay last year, they have doubled the size of the deck with a new deck that is such a nice luxury to enjoy, and they added a keyless entry pad which is such a nice convenience not to need keys while on vacation! Other than that the property is pristine. It's maintained so well. The owners have really gone above and beyond to make it welcoming and have everything one could need for a relaxing yet well equipped vacation property. The owners are super responsive as well and very easy to contact. The location is ideal. During our week we explored from Woods Hole to Chatam and Orleans, all easy drives. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of space. We just love this house. We wouldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the Cape and can't wait to book for next year!

Cozy cottage with abundant amenities

  • 5 of 5

Just back from another fun-filled week on The Cape and wanted to share how much we enjoyed our stay in Michael and Phyllis's inviting home. Upon arrival the house looked exactly like the photos; charming, welcoming, and perfect for our family of four. The home was appointed with everything you could ask for, from the welcome basket, to the AppleTV, to the well-stocked kitchen. Everything was well organized, labeled, and in great condition, which was much appreciated. The outdoor shower provided a refreshing oasis daily. The central location provided easy access, enabling us to explore the cape from top to bottom during our stay. The rental process was smooth and effortless and we would certainly consider staying again during our next visit.
