About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath With Upscale Amenities and Convenience.

This classic cape family home is perfect for your cape cod experience. Decorated with finer amenities (furniture, art, linens, towels and more), this three floor vacation home has it all. Enjoy the newly renovated basement done in 2009 with a family room, private bed and bath and game area. The first floor is bright and airy, with dining room that opens to the patio (with views of Ryder's cove), a master bed and bath (also with water views), and entertaining area. The second floor has two more bedrooms (both with skylights) and another updated bath. The property has an outdoor shower, large private yard, deeded rights to small beach across rte.28 and parking for three cars. It has conservation land behind the property and is very quiet. We love watching the sunset from the lawn and then seeing the stars! It also offers convenience with wifi, staples like beach towels and chairs, and flat screens on each floor.

In the center of it all, it's a five minutes drive to Main Street, and located in between the famed Wequasset and Chatham Bars Inn. Close to the famous trails and beaches of Chatham and Orleans. A beloved get-away for our family, we are inviting others to enjoy this experience. A one-of-kind with only 4-5 weeks rented annually.

About Barbara and Peter Erickson

Busy Boston family with two young kids. We love New England for the beauty of its natural resources and local village feel.

Barbara and Peter Erickson purchased this house in 2014

Why Barbara and Peter Erickson chose Cape Cod

Chatham is the best for families. Beautiful sandy beaches, with a thriving restaurant and shopping scene. We love being close to it all and yet quiet, with the stars at night, the quiet over breakfast and the space to read, run, and relax.

What makes this house unique

The kids fell in love with the rope swing at first glance. We loved that it was incredibly sunny, bright and quiet. The glimpse of water from the patio and first floor is always a joy and the open floor plan and modern amenities make it a real plus on the cape.

Wonderful Home!

  • 4 of 5

We were in Chatham to attend a wedding in September. The Sandy Purse was an easy 5 minute drive to the Chatham Bars Inn and to the quaint center of town. The owners were very easy to work with and let us know they were accessible should we need anything during our stay (which we did not). We chose to bring our own towels to facilitate departure and it was easy enough as instructed to put the first load of sheets into the washer. One note to beach-goers would be that the beach is across a busy road and nearly a mile from the house, not a safe walk but an easy drive. This lovely home perfectly accommodated our family of 7 adults and we all truly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful and Quiet Family-Friendly Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a home through VRBO, and we really enjoyed our stay at Barbara and Peter's Chatham home. While there are certainly less expensive rental options, the price is appropriate for this well-maintained, spacious, and beautiful home with a nice outdoor space that is good for all travelers, including families. We traveled with 2 young children, and the home was great for our family -- plenty of bedroom space, very quiet, a spacious backyard with an outdoor shower and swings. As you can see from the pictures, the home has a nice open concept with the kitchen and living room. The house is within a few minute drive to all the main areas of Chatham, including downtown, Veterans Field, the beaches, and many nice places to eat. We were very happy with our stay and would highly recommend this vacation rental.

Wonderful House!

Perfect cottage on a quiet street with plenty of space and was well-stocked with everything we needed and more! Very clean, beautiful decor and a nice patio with a small view of the water. W

Wonderful time in great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in Chatham at this house. The location was good, and the house is very well furnished. The process of booking, then getting instructions, etc, and getting the deposit back was all very simple and I would definitely recommend this place. The town of Chatham is lovely, perfect for browsing the shops. We found a few great restaurants and generally had a good, relaxing time.

I do have some specific tips for anyone choosing to stay here:

- bring a couple of your own beach chairs - accommodation for 8 but only 4 chairs for the beach

- there is essentially no path to walk or jog on near the house so be prepared to drive before you exercise

- allow plenty of time in the morning before you leave as you will be expected to launder the towels, replace them all and then begin washing the sheets

Owner's Response: Nicki, thank you for your response! I appreciate the feedback on the beach chairs and we will buy some more for future guests. As far as towels and sheets, we are wondering if we should have people bring linens as most rentals do instead of supplying them. Your thoughts on this? I agree on the property being car dependent. It's the challenge of the location. I'm thrilled you had a great stay. Best wishes for the summer!

A charming home and location.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very welcoming, comfortable, and beautifully cared for. There were 7 adults sharing this home and we were all so happy with the amenities and space. It had everything we needed and it was very clean. The location is wonderful. It is a short distance to the beach, charming village shops and dining. We were here for a family wedding and having three bathrooms to get ready in, was a huge plus! Also, the owners are terrific to work with. We were so lucky to choose this home and location for our family get together. I highly recommend it.

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so incredible for a family of four. The basement is super comfortable and the bedrooms, all four, are beautifullu designed. The house is so bright and open and the layout couldn't be better. We will be back in the summer.
