2nd year just as amazing as the 1st

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our golden retriever, stayed 5 nights in this lovely Falmouth home for the 2nd Summer in a row. The homeowner keeps this home very well maintained and it is always clean and welcoming. The house is very spacious and there are AC units in each bedroom and the large living area. The yard is fenced in and there is a nice sized patio in the back (shaded!) with a large table, many chairs, charcoal grill, and a very private outdoor shower! The location is amazing- about a tenth of a mile to Famouths cozy center and just over .6 miles to Surf drive beach. We purchased a little wagon and made the short walk to the beach. Would chose this home year after year for our annual cape vacation!

Perfect Mini vacation

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect. I do not have any complaints, the owner was very easy to work with and incredibly accommodating. I booked this to surprise my husband for his 30th birthday and he couldn't have been more excited! This was our first experience with a vacation rental as well as our first vacation with our young dog (who made himself right at home from the start). The home has everything you would need- from utensils to linens, a charcoal grill, laundry, Ac in all bed room windows, and our favorite was the great sized fenced in yard and outdoor shower! We brought kicthen and beach supplies from our own home, but it was good to know they had extra if needed. The house has so much space- 2 large living areas, a complete and open kitchen, 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 3 tables(2 inside and a very large one outside with tons of seating). This rental will be my first choice for our Falmouth getaways each summer!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

I was nervous about booking this house since the listing was relatively new with no reviews yet, and the information listed was a bit confusing. But I knew the location would be amazing and at the price that we paid for it was a great pick!

The house is about 200 years old but renovated. All the bedrooms are huge - 2 rooms upstairs and 1 downstairs, all with AC units and queen size beds. The half bathroom right outside the downstairs bedroom is very tiny/tight but was nice to have.

There's a dining table right next to the kitchen, as well as another one in the front of the house, each table seats about 4 people. I wish there was a bigger table in the front of the house because if you have more than 4 people (we had 6), we had to move the bench over to the front side so we could all have breakfast together every morning, and we could barely fit everything on it. We made it work - but it would have been nice to have more room.

There were a lot of food, drinks and condiments in the main fridge - so unless you want a particular brand/type of condiment, there's no need to bring your own. If you are going to do some cutting - bring your own knife! I could not cut a watermelon with the knife that was there, it was the dullest knife i've ever had to work with and I almost cut myself several times because of it. There's a regular coffee pot as well as a Keurig, which I wish was listed because then we would have brought our own k-cups. Another thing is that I wish there was sugar and sugar substitutes available - I personally don't use any sugar in my coffee or tea but i know most people do... we ended up just buying some and left them there. Also, bring paper towels and toilet paper because even though there are some there - they will not last you the entirety of your stay and they kind of have a "use and replace" policy. Same thing with the charcoal grill available out in the backyard - bring your own charcoal!

The reason I'm only giving it 4 stars is because it wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be. We had to wash all the glasses and dishes prior to using because they looked dirty, the place smelled a bit musty...etc. They do have linens for the beds but I would highly recommend bringing your own. The house was super close (2min walk) to the main street where all the shops and restaurants were - we had a great time and would stay again!

Great location, comfy cute little house

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay here. The house is about 200 years old (according to the sign on it), but additions have made it pretty comfortable. The layout includes a first floor with a large kitchen, family room, and nice living room, a bathroom with shower, a front (porch-type) room, and a bedroom plus half-bath off the back of the house. The second floor has two bedrooms with slanting ceilings (wouldn't recommend for very TALL people). For us this layout worked great. The kids loved the upstairs rooms, which were sparsely furnished (for me this was a plus!) and very simple. The mattresses upstairs seemed a little thin, but they were fine for kids. The downstairs bedroom was very comfortable; the half-bath is quite small but does its job. There were AC units in every bedroom, and the main part of the house stayed fairly comfortable even in hot weather.

There are many seating options in this house, and especially the back yard had plenty of seats with a large table. Again, this worked great for us with the kids. The kitchen was pretty well-stocked, including a lobster/crab pot and long-handled tongs, which we used to cook the crabs that we had caught. It was fun how the glasses were almost all from local running events! The only thing we ran short of was bowls (because, well, kids), so we bought some paper bowls for our stay. There is wi-fi in the house (didn't work for my ipad in the downstairs bedroom, but otherwise was great). I was a little nervous about this being a "pet-friendly" place because two of my kids have dog allergies, but neither had any reactions that I could tell, although there was definitely pet hair around (my crawling baby made this obvious). The house was overall clean and cute (loved the starfish decorations), but not SO perfect as to make me uncomfortable having kids there. The kids managed to find some construction type materials lying around the house (a wrench, some foot-long nails); having that stuff out of sight would have been helpful for us.

One of the best parts of this house is the location. It is a two minute walk to the great downtown shopping area (watch out, the first store you hit is ice cream and candy!!!) and very close to Surf Drive Beach, which is a fantastic beach for kids, with warm water and few waves and plenty of shallow water. It's also close to the Island Queen ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The price, the location, the arrangements make this a great place for families with young children.
