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 South Yarmouth

The location is amazing - centrally located on the Cape, making it convenient for your Cape excursions. Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood 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 - quiet yet close to all the fun!

The convenience of weekly trash pick up is included.

Best VRBO experience of all!

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a cuter, more well equipped or organized cottage than this centrally located gem. We've had VRBO experiences from coast to coast and this was our best experience so far! To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we spent 10 days here in total comfort and we truly felt at home each evening as we returned to this adorable place after our days spent touring Cape Cod. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: So special to have guests who choose your home to celebrate such a special occasion. It's exciting to have our place chosen to stay at when it's for important moments such as a 30th wedding anniversary, as well as, vacation time. Life is so busy and vacation time is limited - we understand that which is why we strive to make your stay the best. Such wonderful guests who treated our home like their own. We're fortunate to have such great people!! Happy 30th Anniversary and wishing many more to come.

Beautiful updated cottage, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Michael and Phyllis are gracious hosts, they even had a nice "welcome tote" filled with some needed essentials... and WINE!

The cottage is actually nicer than the pictures show, we were so impressed with the updated appliances, the outside shower (which my husband loved), the washer and dryer,comfortable furniture, etc etc.

The owners have thought of everything you made need and everything in the cottage is labeled, sounds crazy but it sure helps when you're looking for something you may need.

I loved the proximity to stop n shop, literally a 1 minute drive away. Beaches, 3 min drive away. If you had bikes, you could make it in 10 mins (but you have to cross rte 28), no biggie, traffic lights abound. Restaurants, mini golf, ice cream shops and anything else you can think of is a 5 minute drive.

The only thing we would love to see in this beautiful cottage is a king size bed. We really needed the extra room of a larger bed and I think one would fit in that master.

My husband was a little disappointed that they didn't provide NESN in their cable service (we're huge sports fans and had to go to local bars to watch our games).

Having mentioned those 2 things that we would like to see , I must reiterate how much we loved our stay and when it was time to leave, we actually arranged to stay one more day ! We would absolutely rent here again, loved the cottage, the hosts, and location.

Thank you Michael and Phyllis!

Owner's Response: Great to have happy guests and thrilled this couple enjoyed their stay - we love to hear back from our guests and provide a response to the feedback they provide. It's very helpful as owners to understand what your suggestions are. The master bedroom is large, which we love, however adding a king size bed would make it a bit tight which is why we went with a queen. ESPN is not provided but Apple TV is and you can stream from an iPad or iPhone if you have a subscription. We love to have our guests return - it's always such a rewarding feeling to have them back. Hope to have you back soon!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family of four's first time renting a house on the cape, and we were extremely happy with the experience from start to finish! The house is beautiful. Along with that, expectations were clear, and we really appreciated the "handbook," which provided all of the instructions and information we needed for our stay. The welcome package was an added bonus - we were so touched by this! We also really appreciated the fact that everything was labeled - making it very easy to navigate the house. The back deck and outdoor shower were perfect and put to good use! While the beach is not necessarily in walking distance, it is in reasonable running distance - we are runners so we ran to the beach with the kids in their strollers almost every day. We also explored the beaches of Dennis, which were just a short drive away. The grocery store is right around the corner, very convenient. For the one question we did have during our stay, Michael was very responsive - within minutes. The only thing that I would make other potential renters aware of - particularly those with small children - is that the house is on a busier road - I could have easily figured this out for myself ahead of time, but I didn't. This didn't matter much because we spent so little time at the house, and it isn't a deal breaker for next time, but others might want to be aware. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear the labeling and Home Welcome guide were helpful - we know it can be a challenge in a new home to locate items. We want to be sure our renters know what's available to them at the cottage for their convenience. The outdoor deck and shower are favorites of ours to and we love that we can share that experience with others.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

My family just enjoyed a week at Phyllis and Michaels home, it was exactly what we were hoping for...these are some of the reasons why we loved it.

1) SPOTLESS & BEAUTIFUL: I've worked the last 20 years in the hotel industry and I would consider myself a picky neat freak, this home was extremely clean and also important it smelled great, no musty smell like other rentals.

2) LOCATION: it seemed we were never more than 15 minutes from anywhere, we go to several beaches and attractions in Hyannis and Dennis and this was by far the best place to be.

3)ORGANIZED & CONVENIENT: Phyllis you have the most organized rental ever, labels on all doors and drawers so you know exactly where to find things, no clutter, lots of space to unpack your things. Keypad (no keys :)) outdoor shower, easy access to hose and trash bin. Garage was off the kitchen making it easy to keep beach gear. Beach gear, we had ours but if you don't they have everything, and I mean everything.

I want to thank you both for being such wonderful home owners, Phyllis you definetely go out of your way to make sure your renters have what they need right down to a special personalized welcome gift, it's been the best rental I've ever stayed in, beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean, we felt right at home!

Owner's Response: It's making families like this happy that makes it so worth it - especially from an individual with extensive hotel experience. It's always so rewarding to hear a family enjoyed their stay. We do recognize vacation time with the family is extremely important and want our guests to feel comfortable. So thrilled that we were able to make a family feel comfortable and that they had a clean home to relax in. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful guests- families enjoying their stay just motivate us even more to make it better every year. Such a compliment from a family who have been coming to the Cape for years!

3rd time is a charm!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our third year in a row of staying in this relaxing, well-organized, peaceful cottage for a week of summer fun in Cape Cod! The location is so ideal close to everything we wanted to do- rain or shine: beaches on bay or atlantic side, whale watching, bowling, outdoor concerts, etc. As our boys get older there is still plenty of room for our family of 4 to feel comfortable. The outdoor shower remains one of our favorite perks- as well as the ping pong table in the basement! Apple tv/ fast wireless are nice too. Love the new updates this year including shade over half the deck- we ate many meals out there! Thanks so much for maintaining this property so well- we look forward all year to coming back and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else!

Comfortable, clean, well appointed vacation home!

From the minute we walked in the door we felt comfortable and relaxed. Everything is well labeled and there is a book there with everything you need/want to know about the property. All the comforts of home! Owners are very accommodating. This is definitely a place we would return to!
